Okay joining us now is rich -- is he's -- -- -- speak about it seems to be in line with the president plane down on the -- in the immediate future.
I wanna know how was the media responding to this latest -- from the speak about -- Well they're not really respond to speaker Boehner and it really respond to the president when he said.
Something a little bit different on Tuesday on Tuesday the president said it wasn't.
-- an immediate crisis but also we had ten years it was sustainable.
Or ten years hauled us economically that you are you saying that this constant media is just ignoring.
The debt and what the president and speak -- -- and I have to say about it because.
Look to me and our viewers this debt is a huge problem I mean it's -- crisis that is coming at some point we know what's coming.
Are you saying that the media just flat out ignoring this thing.
-- pretty much mean ABC covered because they had the interview with the president and so was included in the snippets they show Tuesday night and Wednesday morning but then no comment Wednesday night Thursday Friday Saturday.
ABC or CBS and NBC didn't touch and it all on those days it got some traction on the Sunday political -- shows.
Including speaker Boehner -- response.
The speaker said we may have one or two or three years but we should act the president seem to suggest.
This is a problem it's already pretty much salt -- sustainable for the next ten years -- much -- -- would agree with that this to be highly controversial Republican president.
Said something like that they're you know a problem that everybody seems to admit we have 83% of the public says we have a spending crisis Republican president said no we don't.
It would be huge news and that's where his mind was that this presidents and democratic president says that and it's not new.
I just wonder if they'll be any shift by members of the that the media.
When they look over the pond and see what's going on in Europe with the C Asia of private assets because of massive debt.
I wonder if that changed that tone at all all -- the story -- Europe's debt with Al off massive growing debt.
It's certainly a story that shows you need to solve these problems early before they become become out of control.
But the medium given this president a pass on the debt.
For years in 2008 he said George Bush's deficits were unpatriotic they were fraction of what these are in 2009.
That promise was essentially ignored in 2012 when he ran for re election.
And it failed to do that would mention one time of the three newscasts all year and then in 2012 -- he told MSNBC that cutting.
I think get a deficit be his first order business.
This week he's been there last week he said no it's something we.
We -- get a balanced budget for the sake of balance -- to signal for the next ten years.
I think he is clearly moving the goal posts.
A watchdog press to be all over this but now pressing for ignoring you should say our emails when it comes to the debt situation now view as the all over -- I'll tell -- that -- -- always a pleasure thank you very much and -- thank you thank.
