Well after getting knocked for a -- Republicans looks like they're loaded for.
-- public taxes -- that the back woods it's it's undeniable big went -- sequestration not only getting because the president thought they'd never swallow when Warren would devastate the economy.
But proving as they said the economy could take those cuts in the markets wouldn't miss a beat.
Look at a month.
Record days in a row former Republican governor of New Hampshire John Sununu says -- sign.
Maybe if this keeps up the grand old party has found it speaks governor it's always great having -- -- don't.
It's good to be about a labor studies right on target pay attention -- I think years to -- -- no.
Whether -- well I can remember as a kid -- -- massive snowstorms have known was -- and up about global warming -- but that was then this is now.
What do you make of Republicans because.
The president try to put him on the spot try to say these cuts go through.
Our cuts and he came up with wanted ran down the throats they called his bluff they took that cuts that took the heat it took a week of non stop parading breast.
Life goes on markets -- records.
Looks like a win.
But look it's it's more of a loss for the president than just a win for the Republicans.
The president got caught by -- so.
Saying that it wasn't his idea and Woodward -- so everybody as a learned through.
And by the way we're also real world around us and it will really sequester and -- -- also revealed that.
That -- tax hikes shouldn't be part of this.
Who was also the president Branstad was perhaps aren't want to get that -- of of untruth.
The second piece of untruth that came from the president.
-- said the world was gonna and and the world -- and ended.
And now he says he has no flexibility.
And there was a great article in the hill newspaper up one on Capitol Hill -- talked about all the flexibility that he really has.
If there are problems in sequester it is because the president -- people do not -- know how to operate within the budget rules that exist.
If TSA guys get laid off or lose their overtime it's the president's -- Not anyone else's fault and I think in the long run this president's gonna find out that his string is beginning to unravel.
But you know in a way having -- handy excuse in your back pocket.
Is a handy excuse when things sort of -- a tight air pocket right so he could point to the next week number or up.
Just -- -- governor and say well -- -- and that's not on me.
Well look there was an interesting poll by rescues and today.
That that two to one the American public is afraid that they will not be enough spending cuts.
That they won't begin to solve the problem with -- not spending cuts and by the same due to one.
The public is afraid that the president will have too many tax increases.
So all of a sudden.
The message is beginning to get out there and as soon as the public starts registering with this kind of rationality.
This presidents in trouble.
I'm you know you can only cry wolf so many times for people to say stuff like way down -- that you just cried wolf before.
But this I'm gonna -- this on -- what you say because I've talked to a number of people many of them.
The big supporters of the president say you know he he did really frightening you know what -- -- -- and so far.
That it doesn't seem to be panning out that you could lose a lot of credibility.
Warning about Armageddon Armageddon damn well better happened because of it doesn't.
You you look compromise.
Once they realize the emperor has no clothes the -- in trouble.
And and at this this stuff with with with the budget is beginning to to be paid attention to for a long time.
The public cook whatever the president said at his word.
Now that that people understand that there is a large streak of untruth.
In everything he's been saying they're gonna pay more and more attention and when that happens.
The Republicans will begin to see a president I think.
That at that point might be willing to truly negotiate you know his style of negotiating.
-- the throne ultimatum on the table and say taken -- leave it.
I have to negotiate for a president who understood.
How important it was to get a real budget for the American economy so there'd be some faith in the financial system.
And it takes a lot of hard work.
A lot of give and take and their president who's willing to lead George Herbert Walker Bush.
Was willing to lead and took the penalty.
This president doesn't even know how to lead from behind but it was from that experience on a lot of Republicans and -- say don't trust Democrats -- -- make promises on spending cuts they never material.
Well that's part of the problem.
And and there's no need to have future promises on spending cuts we can have spending cuts now put him on the table Mr.
-- like a president ought to lead negotiate a real package.
He's been afraid to put a budget through for four years there's a reason the president and the senate Democrats have not had a budget.
It's because they know that a real budget requires them to accept.
Seven reductions in spending on the entitlements.
And requires them to accept.
Some reduction of of what is perceived as.
In the electorate out there and they don't wanna do that -- you have to put it to paper and once -- -- -- -- president said there for the world to read your right.
Governor thank you could -- it's hard to lie when it's on paper it's easy to -- verbally.
And I think that's what they have found is the formula for their success governor thank you again.
