Always -- to the eight team he's consulted over former President Clinton New York City mayor.
Mike Bloomberg among others democratic strategist Hank shine -- the -- like -- founder and editor.
Fox News contributor Tucker Carlson and former special advisor to president George W.
Bush Ron Christie Tucker I want to turn to you first.
I mean you guys have been running off some stories about absolutely astounding.
-- I wanna start with yes.
That -- -- reporting on the un doing of the Clinton signature legislation that you well.
That is picking up -- work requirements from welfare reform.
Doesn't leave much room for the -- reform doesn't.
But it's not much of -- reform if you get welfare return nothing.
I'm yes that was that was the signature achievement -- yours it was hallmark of the new democratic era and it's been reversed and by the way the the dissemination welfare -- the -- -- immigrants has been accelerated this administration the Obama people have entered into agreements for the Government of Mexico to give food stamps.
Two recent rivals from Mexico.
Intentionally accelerating welfare and -- There is no -- action to this it seems Ron Christie.
Where is the Republican Party -- the Romney campaign outrage where is the grassroots.
Outrage who gives a damn anymore.
Or -- -- and he's certainly.
They certainly should be -- I mean I worked on the -- this was signature achievement it was primarily authored by then senator aren't many congressman Rick Santorum.
And I'm sitting here -- What in the heck is wrong with -- people I would be out there beating the drum and saying.
We are actually putting a system in place where if you reduce not -- the number of years -- can stay on welfare but you have a work requirement what happens.
People dramatically fell off the welfare rolls and the fact that the Republican Party is sitting by their hands or at least sitting on their -- doing whatever they're doing I think is.
Disgraceful aren't really ticked off about this this is a bad move by the Republicans and something they do a better job about communicating on.
-- -- -- doing in the mid nineties it's like this -- can't cut and head for that president.
I'm I don't know on the web bottom line that talks about welfare to work there -- cut that -- when I was working for the president's reelection campaign.
This quite astounding to see happening in our lifetimes that was synergy with -- he was very proud of you know why nobody's getting -- the Republicans aren't great great because -- -- people like us get crazy and disseminate information the risk the American public.
And create the buzz and that's exactly what's gonna happen.
Well in -- You're reporting again I'm gonna I'm gonna go or we're gonna deal with insurers -- report operation fast and furious which Charlie gets a play in the national -- media.
Your reporting again that the chief of police if you walk.
Failed assassination to attempt with -- weapon one -- operation that's.
Is that you're right and Indian -- we don't know about this we know that there are 700 weapons unaccounted for from this program.
-- we don't know where they are we don't know who's been killed with and we do you know there have been several hundred Mexican nationals killed and at least one maybe two American citizens.
But this is just another example this is one of those stories that's going to I think unfold over the years.
Is is it possible that the American people are now watching these ads talking about Romney is responsible for -- woman's.
Death from cancer.
-- All of it proved to be -- utterly untrue this this.
Campaign -- -- Let's -- it seems Romney is just going along with the gain there's nowhere outrage on his part there is no bombast there is no.
Bringing the fist down and saying this is not going to -- where is the moment where I paid for this might -- -- fall.
Ronald Reagan famously said -- 1980.
I mean what what's it gonna take here Ron Christie.
-- look -- have a big -- governor Romney's but this is section below the belt below.
By this affiliated -- by the Obama administration that we've come to find out they may have coordinated this.
This is just spent I don't know no no no no we know they did we've got the a well OK oh OK that's it.
It is despicable.
That fact that this woman actually had health insurance for a couple of years afterwards and they're trying to blame governor.
-- that's that's about debt problem that's.
The primary is governor Romney and his people don't have -- stock did even react -- done what I'm.
If you Lou Dobbs is saying some different and is but I wouldn't put my name and I'd be embarrassed I'm group were done -- -- pretty hard.
When the story is as possible about things where are these guys where's the right whereas the -- where -- the baseball bat whether it's somebody in the head.
And the real question is that if he doesn't start doing that the American Republicans say you know what.
This is a bar fight you don't know -- therefore you don't we don't want you in the bar.
That's with the that's really looks weak and fearful you see you -- running looks like his greatest fear is stepping in it saying something you shouldn't say starting off script on approve.
And and fear up weights in the minds most -- weakness -- like you and they don't -- we clear we don't give the presidency to anybody won't fight for sex history the American republic.
This guy's gonna start fighting or is not going to be in the game those numbers are gonna change you know.
The old saying don't wrestle with pigs -- -- there's always the possibility you'll lose.
Certainly that no matter whether Renner -- the pigs gonna enjoy.
-- -- and you've really got to understand.
That this this guy right now running.
For the Republican Party.
I mean he's just not there.
-- -- accomplish man of great principle.
A great life story and what in the world as we gonna do with a Tucker.
I haven't the faintest idea I mean I think they think they can stand back and not get fully involved not release his tax returns not -- -- in which -- -- was a metaphor for going all.
You know we get -- -- are not right and they think they can just run on Obama's deficits which would maybe that would.
But I'm not sure it's gonna work the American public who all flew on a message time -- -- -- average American gets 40000 advertising impressions and they do not gonna have leased space in the argument that it won't -- And -- wanna pay attention because they don't want a president who's gonna allows open smacked around.
That -- might be true heck I agree with you bet Romney if he wants this thing he's got -- fight for.
I think people wanna see him stand up and they wanna see him angered by this ticked off by this and say.
Not only is this beneath the belt but I'm not gonna ticket and as a matter and I can't take it anymore because we're out of can't -- -- -- -- sorry I'm.
I will make up to you when you come back to the big the Big Apple.
That's fair deal Tucker Carlson thank you very much thank Shankar thank you Ron Christie.
