Our first guest tonight says the president has been trying to make the sequester -- markets apocalyptic.
And blame our economic problems on the reduction in government spending joining us tonight.
The former mayor of New York City former presidential candidate Rudolph Giuliani.
Now -- -- law firm bumpers Roland Giuliani good to have you here nice to be -- let's start -- sequester our it.
This is this administration is.
Racked up more than Tokyo's in the last few weeks in the Washington Post than any -- com or call -- -- Made no sense -- two and a half percent cut in the budget that is trillions of dollars.
It's really a cut in the increase in spending.
That would never would have kept catastrophic effect I don't know why anybody believe that in the first place but it does show that this White House.
Doesn't lead to place politics as usual all political game.
Here we have serious long term economic problems that a leader would deal with instead we have a president run around crying crying wolf.
To no effect.
So you're not persuaded that sequester as such a powerful economic and -- -- budgetary consequences wolves are directly that.
It would be necessary to cut down the White House -- that he.
Well I guess he had to sacrifice something I mean my goodness come on.
And this is totally crazy and now that the rating agencies -- rule making a valid point that this wasn't much of a cut the start with.
We've got a long term debt problem here.
That a serious president -- Syria's leader should be helping us deal with should be setting the tone for dealing with -- that is going the opposite direction.
Who knows they're used to refer to no drama Obama now it's Obama drama and its relentless sure.
Do -- Republicans seem to have come up -- approach and strategy.
If you -- -- demeanor that user appropriate to to the Obama drama and that is they're going to insist John Boehner says the speaker of the house.
Regular order we're going to actually happen -- the president has put together legislation re introduce it.
There must be hearings the public will be heard on these issues.
And it's so.
How -- -- you do you do you -- I think yeah I think after a little bit of difficulty figuring out how to deal with this when -- we went through the fiscal cliff wall those negotiations.
I think they're -- they're now on the on the right track I think they handled sequester actually -- they didn't give buffalo and -- by all that nonsense the president was putting out there.
I think they're gonna go back to all and open process of doing a budget.
I -- a budget for eight years as the mayor of the City Council always had hearings on my budget it was a 34 month process that was enormously helpful.
In getting support in making making arrangements -- you can fix things.
There there must be an allure off four of those who were leaders in congress where the -- Boehner or McConnell or their predecessors.
To have those.
The secret meetings if you will private meetings.
With the president over these big issues -- come up with a grand bargain that must be intoxicating to solve its calamities so -- -- for the Republican.
It is it is and it you know it's calamity because he represented so many people and they'll have different viewpoints and then they needed chance.
To make their points and sometimes they appoint a very good a very good ones I think it's very temperate very counterproductive.
And when you had a president.
Who really doesn't know how to negotiate.
Is -- president that it's my way of the high whether it's a president that wants to negotiate with -- one hand and they go out make a speech about what above you are.
You know two hours later I can't imagine I have would have passed the budget doing that.
And and he gets away with -- because immediate forms over but this is so counterproductive.
He's trying to get Republicans to meet him halfway.
Been -- them on the stump he's not running right now he's he's elected for the next four years just an act like the president of the candidate.
