Let's move -- to the small matter as to whether or not this administration this congress will be responsible for sending the country back into recession.
And adding to to the roles of -- now 23 million Americans without jobs underemployed or.
Simply having given up being employed what what do you think the president is doing you've written -- massive best seller on this administration.
I've been talking to the Republican leadership in Washington about this very thing -- they're right or wrong I don't know but they believe.
In their hearts that this president is.
Trying to go over the cliff cost.
He has looked at the polls in all the polls that if we go over the cliff if the Republicans with people are going to blame they're gonna blame the -- Let me ask you about this I thought that was trying to him -- -- -- that pew poll right.
First while it's sort of a silly thing for people to say who's gonna be responsible because have even begun negotiations who how would they know who is responsible.
But secondly think about the pollster who pose the question.
Inviting such silliness.
And -- -- to make a decision about something that hasn't transpired has even begun.
To try and created a foundation for buoyant.
Thank you see Bill Clinton getting on the phone to Barack Obama -- you remember what I did act in nineteen whatever and I.
What I've made the Republicans responsible for closing down the government.
And they never got over.
I destroy them well I in aren't as I said I I think that actually.
I would be spreads Bill Clinton is an orchestrating the whole thing right now behind.
If you will behind the curtain what do you think and.
I'm not I would not be surprised to President Obama was was on the phone on a regular basis with the the former President Clinton and talked about what occurred 95 it was really extraordinary as they did force the government shut down.
It was the end of a Gingrich and observe and it was the end of dole and it was the end of Republicans for awhile it was -- quite extraordinary.
Barack Obama campaigned on this issue I think he's gonna dig his heels in on this issue and he very successfully painted Republicans as obstructionists and that's why they're gonna be blamed because he ran his whole campaign saying.
These are the guys who won't let me get things done and I agree with him -- I agree with you to the to the middle class he kept saying.
So I think he's gonna dig its heels -- I'm not so sure that John Boehner Mitch McConnell that the Republican leadership is gonna dig their heels in on no tax hikes I'm not sure where this is gonna go I see a potential for Republicans caving I don't see a potential -- Obama keeping our.
I I would like to say that I see a potential for both.
McConnell and Boehner to pivot for the Republican Party into what the president is -- Which -- frankly counsel both parties to do.
Approach policy from the perspective of the middle class and those who aspire to a I've said it for the past two years on this campaign.
The president actually didn't.
And it paid off and it paid off by one half of 1%.
And I think that's an advantage you think they're capable of dividend.
Yes I think there's -- -- -- digital.
I agree and -- he is the most important person in this play right now because he -- he -- begat by the by who they chose that in the leadership shakeup really.
It's pretty clear about where he was escorted to go by I should I sure hope somebody starts talking about the fact that we have seen.
-- individual tax receipts for the federal government go up by 26%.
Over the past two years with those bush tax cuts in place.
