The State Department doesn't have our own Grover Norquist.
Pushing up pledge to protect that.
I think that's a compliment.
It so wasn't exactly -- flying or hell freezing over about it was John Kerry John -- Giving a shout out to frequent -- White House critic Grover Norquist and his first official speech.
As secretary of state.
-- -- here to respond Tom Glover what is essentially saying is is is has been no one is trying to.
Policing us blood but -- what it what did you take of of the backhanded compliment.
Well I Senator Kerry I'm originally from Massachusetts prior to -- in the United States half bad enough.
I've talked to carry.
And he understands the power of the taxpayer protection pledge he was trying it taxes raised in 2011.
President Obama and body couldn't because Republicans it made the commitment in writing.
Not to raise taxes some people confuse.
-- commitment by elected officials never to raise taxes with.
Me -- I I share the pledge with people but that the power of the pledge the power of the tax issue is independent of me personally.
But some nice people say grow -- -- they mean tax issue I understand -- -- -- tax issues very powerful.
The State Department.
Needs to focus on what America does well property rights rule of law that we should be exporting property rights not money.
Yeah well we are exporting auto makers a lot of it we just in the last -- a lot of millionaires and billionaires of -- -- a -- -- here on over there.
Leave that aside I do want you to weigh in if you don't mind off what's going on with social question saying my view on the subject well rotted away -- -- yours yours is is that.
Anybody in in the scheme of things this chump change and and scariest diseases that that we're going to.
You know essentially bring us back to the dark ages if they go through personal both parties agreed in fact this was the president's original concoction.
And 85 million and a three point -- dollar -- that is the beginning of the end of the world I don't know what happens we have to get serious.
Well I think it's very helpful because this is budget cutting.
On training where else.
This is not serious budget cutting its budget cutting on training -- since the beginning of reducing.
The overspending of the last.
-- you know we're not doing that great on the training wheels which leads me to believe that -- -- ultimately taken tomorrow there's going to be tough if not impossible.
I think we're gonna have to got a three year true where we have minor remember this is a 2% cut in total government spending over the decade.
Gonna save one trillion.
-- from the federal.
Budget which over the next ten years -- -- 45 billion trillion try and try and -- We will still growing and its total debt that we do now anywhere -- -- world -- we're not yeah putting.
The overall debt -- That it's a small cut.
What we are learning is that we can get we can do this and then we need to -- how to do more -- also learning.
Is that Obama acts like a small child who's been heard and and when you.
-- you try and fix -- he screams bloody murder while you're trying to fix a problem.
And his reaction to a small budget cut is too -- didn't -- and and have issues that.
What we're gonna have to do is learn to ignore his screams.
Of anguish while we reform the government that he -- so badly damaged over the last four years.
I'm worried about whether this too late obviously we've done with so little resolved to -- this in the president moralist gave up on that.
Evidence of state of the union speech he he has he has he has he has really octagon over the top -- -- scare tactics would this.
With DC the -- it got so.
And by about a the other side hasn't -- they would just taken up by the case of -- all of this may be -- we -- -- understand that.
That you know this is better than than getting tax hikes and there.
Neither side gives me much shouldn't you know encouragement.
Well I think the American people understand that spending has gone too far we need to bring it back.
It it was again it was the president's -- -- -- the sequester it's not the most elegant way around to cut spending but unless it's a one way.
Adage better to cut it this way then they're not.
Average begin the process of reducing spending wherever the president went to great school he learned addiction but not subtraction.
And he finds it easy to add to the budget and he just gets confused when you talk about spending lasted just.
He's never heard the concept.
Yeah I think he knows the -- very well I just think he doesn't want to hear about it all is that Grover it's always a pleasure good -- yet.
Good to do it -- it --
