During this -- cohost of the five on the Fox News Channel Andrew ten Charles -- as -- requirements problems for the help.
One -- it's good to have you both here and what we've started under review.
My -- it's pretty impressive to see fourteen no one on a chart there.
I'd love the Republican messaging I felt that powerful and effective how to jurors -- -- it's sad Lou it's sad and you know Harry Reid brings up fingers I can understand his message either.
What I do know is the Republicans have extended a finger towards Harry reading.
Just a select one that we can display on this program.
Well I agree with -- on Republican messaging they have a challenge to.
They first -- I think they dropped the ball they could have pushed for more they had an opportunity they have the president now cracking and crumbling he's on his heels.
-- they should have been pushing for entitlement reform and more cuts.
Now they had the opportunity here's what they congress you look at I was making that very point -- outset of the -- and and here's what they have to deal with going forward.
One if nothing happens and nobody dies -- loses a finger on Saturday morning they have an opportunity to point out that the president doesn't just have egg on his face he hasn't whole -- they also have to be ready that anything that goes wrong -- anything bad weather someone loses a job someone Stubbs -- -- They're gonna blame that on the sequester and he may even take credit for it if nothing happened he could pull a Clinton President Obama I don't think Republicans are ready to message this I really don't they don't look organized.
-- -- As the president screwed up here I mean has he its employed the rhetoric appeared to such a degree carried out a campaign of here.
That is going to back our ballot bully or other -- of president and administration.
-- backfires badly but I think Andrew is right I think -- at the moment.
What it looks like is well it's not going to be as bad as you said and if you listen to the president his rhetoric has shifted he's now saying.
It's not gonna be falling over the cliff that's going to be -- more like a slow tumble down the hill.
And he points now less -- at specific cuts to first responders teachers and -- -- talks more about the idea that.
Well you know the effect on the economy could be dramatic and it could slow things down to look at Wall Street today and Wall Street guest thinks.
You know what these guys are going start negotiating they're gonna negotiate to the end of march on new budget and that's how the deal will be made let me just say one quick thing that Andrea.
When you look at the American people in terms of polling.
Based they they think this sequester is a bad idea we have a -- -- small -- today.
And the Fox News poll has 45%.
Saying this is a negative thing for -- -- I have and is thought I had.
And how to -- on our partner I mean if I may I do we have the the -- or more to show.
Particularly the audience -- of course.
And good friend Juan Williams as well.
Are showing the prefer -- new budget deal focus I would like to show as well as you look there.
-- what percent believe that sequester is absolutely necessary.
In order to get a budget deal cut do we have that.
We don't have.
I think it -- I don't how are you are really want want that none that I percent.
Say that the question was how -- the country get the budget deficit under control -- 57% saying.
Automatic you know rupiah and unless of course -- down the throat right unless it's -- -- -- -- it won't happen but here's the other part.
-- America -- have -- been given up for the American people.
They're not getting BS by all of this they know exactly what's going on in -- -- -- colorful button but -- -- also is that in the poll 55%.
It should be a combination of cuts and taxes that doesn't it.
-- -- want to look I I always went to the Fox News poll to meet its most telling that shows that 83% of Americans believe we have a huge spending problem in this country.
The sequester is a confusing word.
The fiscal clip was confusing the president got tax hikes and spending increases as spending cuts last time around mostly tax hikes.
So I'm not saying that the people who took this poll.
Knew what was going on but this is confusing stuff and what everyone agrees on overwhelmingly as we have to cut government that is not just a conservative issue.
And I'm brutally honest and the fact that -- the Washington Post is giving four Pinocchio to the president's man on education.
Who they -- administration trotted out for the Sunday talk shows.
I think I think tells us a lot I think he'd -- I think you fell on the space there and threatening reporters also shows a White House that well and I well I -- know that's.
-- -- -- That's crazy we never -- I think -- agree with Warner was crazy for them to threaten Bob would.
It Andrea tell us a lot of I don't think -- I don't think they threaten all I know you don't have rarely watch and there are some nights in Chicago thank you thank you very well thank -- and we appreciate it with our.
