And satisfy high unemployment sluggish economic growth of ballooning deficit.
But about Obama came out victorious on Tuesday that I didn't I didn't write this seems a little.
You know a little negative yeah they did not airport here is an office but that's -- shell -- Republicans through their message to pick up for the GOP.
And who'll be the new face of the party.
Lou Dobbs is here with more of this and you see a big change.
I think you've already seen it change you're hearing about your where -- Republicans now are going around -- -- and moaning about having lost an election.
And -- and they're talking with a message and they've got to give amnesty to illegal emigrants they've got to.
They've got to join President Obama just spending as much money as possible.
And you know -- it's really great except I would spend money is and we I wouldn't deny that in the war and -- is long issue.
It's your money well and that and I think that that's probably something that sort of funny -- and probably -- a Republican Party.
But what I'd love about this is there's apparently a view -- some in the Republican Party we should be a one party system there should be a debate about.
Old sixteen trillion in debt there should be a debate about consecutive trillion dollar deficits are.
-- 23 million people unemployed don't worry about that we're just.
Gin up some more government money and programs -- those -- every group -- mean.
They -- -- you know it -- start being honest OK first I have to be honest what are the real issues that confront the country.
And the fact is the -- fundamental issue that faces this country is are we going to have our lives dominated by an ever expanding.
Yes -- aren't government.
We're -- current or.
Are we going to have a nation built on freedom individual responsibility.
Were not opportunity.
We are watching right now who are bringing you the bad news.
It's the first one we're spending its debt -- -- an idea out there that's it was costs and yet as a definitive -- and that's it.
Lasting -- answer what message do you do you live joined the of one party together I think it's it's.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- You know government in the I don't want Stuart -- -- warning.
I don't know wonderful declaration in this morning's that he is going to fight on his broadcast.
Our our national values and the free enterprise system.
And you don't want now we just need to stop sixteen to -- -- million more voters to kind of line up on that attitude.
Are you shell shocked -- this.
-- yeah I spectrum that I just I I think that the nation has spoken and we turned into Europe in the nation LC.
Then here's which is at a Lyndon he.
-- I'm hearing people so we're you know we needed more women we needed more Latinos we needed more.
People like freaked out and voted for priest and I can I get all that I've talked about it -- reported that's fine.
Puts the Republican Party is what -- the question marks and the Republican Party needs to turn out more of the people who call themselves Republicans.
There were war or more independents and Republicans.
This time and in fact everyone made it very clear statement from every broadcast.
And every news outlet.
But there were more -- Republicans and independents and therefore.
It was really important for -- for Huckabee to win the independents.
They didn't even turn out the Republicans.
They didn't turn out to independents read the lower -- -- purpose propriety public nuisance variety -- He says -- thinking -- -- the party is the market right rubio.
OK I think that that's our certainly area you look -- one of the it council and -- as our government Marco Rubio is one of them the brightest youngest stars in the Republican Party.
If you're asking -- who's going to lead the party.
That I think is one of the essential.
You owns that is really going to perplexed support because that person is not.
-- is is not really identified right now Mitch McConnell leads the senate minority.
John Boehner leads the house majority.
But they're not all right -- -- -- and I'm sorry -- Paul Ryan have a resurgent you know it's a really interest in question because he'd lost his home state.
Governor Romney and -- -- losses homes in Wisconsin and and they didn't do well there.
-- -- -- it to me it's a very open question as to what his role will be it'll be obviously you'll have the opportunity.
To create a role went to define himself better but he sure going to have to be more than a one trick pony he's got to learn to say something for signs of budget.
And it's really important that he go beyond that -- he is it in his.
Political for some how tell you that at the -- you know the Republicans have got lots of Smart folks but and a Smart folks are gonna start thinking and they got to start working.
We got a lot of lazy Republicans it looks to me like I'm I'm I'm talking and leaving the party.
And its various factions -- we've got some lazy Republicans when it comes out comes to turning out to vote -- because that was the big deal.
Go vote are right Lou Dobbs thank you so much you can do it everyday here at this time is not excited at 7 and 10 eastern tonight catch former special counsel.
To Bill Clinton know how citing what -- -- elections have consequences I'm talking to one of the leading Democrats in the country about.
Very question that we raised -- what in the world lies ahead.
