It's spring and -- -- -- on a topic is Steve you ran for president is a possible to change Washington from the outside of that the way to go.
Well like just want to hit on what Charles that in that is in terms of.
Health care that was done against popular opinion if they had outsiders making that decision helped that -- -- never would have passed.
And in terms of changing Washington you do it by democratically mobilizing public opinion the way Ronald Reagan did in the early 1980s.
Got public support for his tax cuts rebuilding the military.
-- regulation got a mandate in -- force able to get big things done even on the Democrats controlled one of the houses of congress.
What Obama sounding like -- Obama sounding like.
More like a Third World kind of guy -- -- we're gonna have mobs are gonna will overturn institutions and that kind of thing.
And so what's did and he knew he was wrong on two points public opinion was against his big stop.
And it sounds like he wants to work do more -- this pitting one group against another grievance polyps -- you know.
-- -- Steve here's issue history US history shows that have American presidents as you point out changed DC from the inside going back to FDR on up to Kennedy.
On -- you know George H.
Bush President Reagan what -- a centrist point that the president is asking for another four years while admitting.
Can't change DC.
Well I think what you're gonna see him do now since he's made a mistake again.
Is our wrap himself when Ronald Reagan who said that the way you would change opinion Washington is through the white heat of public opinion.
But this I think what the president is talking about was very different I think he's going to be talked have been if he gets a second term.
It's gonna have a lot more executive orders more -- -- from -- In independent agencies like the EPA and other words government by decree not by democracy.
Of the -- can change Washington you just have to mobilize public opinion and get a mandate -- what is this mandate for November yes told us that yet.
Steve you're saying essentially the president gets reelected we do have deep that gridlock in Washington DC.
But the president will do an end run around congress and -- executive orders and working through the growing czar is bureaucracy in Washington DC.
How -- do you think it could get.
It's gonna get very bad he's gonna do everything he wants to do and say if you don't like what -- dictated.
Take me to court you've already seen them despite all their -- -- -- undermined the 1996 welfare act the work requirement of the welfare act.
They're gonna do a lot of that stuff they're gonna try to they're gonna stop fracking by decree take me to court.
Courts take years so what's I think it's pretty ominous and who knows what the Justice Department is gonna do against people they don't like.
They've already targeted some big givers to work the Romney campaign to the Republicans for special treatment as bad stuff and so were up.
I think the American people are gonna wake up to what he's not talking about town halls and what Ronald Reagan did quite the opposite.
All right on to the next topic violence in the Middle East.
The president is still blaming a movie are cartoons for -- -- some of us.
What we've seen over the last week week and a -- is something that actually we've seen in the past.
Where there is an offensive video or Khartoum.
Director of the Prophet -- And this is obviously something that that is used as an excuse by some.
To carry out inexcusable violent acts.
Directed at westerners or Americans.
-- clarifying something we said earlier while the administration says what happened in Libya.
Was a terrorist attack it has not said the attack had nothing to do with the movie but Steve what's your reaction to this -- sound bite here.
Well when and under at its a couple of things one is to take away blamed for the fact that Libya they had advance warnings that something was gonna happen and they did not take proper precautions.
And in terms of spontaneity of riots if you have a spontaneous a mob coming along.
You get them shaken their fists and everything but organized attack you do you don't have to a demonstration was -- now he don't bring grenade launchers and things like that.
So there was nothing most of that stuff was not spontaneous it was planned.
That's why they had drew blood from our break diplomats and the government fell down on their safety and that's what they're trying to cover up -- -- -- -- -- some cartoons fall.
It's that -- it's bad stuff so some bad for free speech Steve -- you bet are right steep fourth thank you so much for your time really --
