For now forget the -- it's the IRS that's front and center.
Especially since as they are as a book of a far greater role enforcing the new health care law that was -- maybe is until now the former governor Mike Huckabee who last -- as a godsey.
Was enough to be big trouble for the president but now we've got other scandals brewing a governor.
At the very least I think it's Stein he's the president's agenda.
Not to be a good or bad thing you think this plays out.
Well I think he's in for a real tough summer I don't think the -- biggest problem he's gonna face -- the heat of Washington DC it's going to be to heat from the press.
And and you take any one of these things been -- pretty much had the press sound asleep they didn't care that much about it.
The IRS story really riled up a lot of members of congress and got the press -- their antennas went out.
But the eight.
Over a hundred employees telephone records.
It in the south feel we say it this way sometimes you just -- the wrong dog.
And what they did they kick the wrong dog because when you go out mess with the press.
And start impeding their ability to do their job as the watchdog.
Well now I think you've got all the teeth -- and it's a whole different environment and I don't think the White House has ever faced a hostile press and they face one now.
You have the last couple of days -- particular governor Dearborn I don't think we've ever heard so many tough questions -- to someone Fox News guy.
Who is you know more focused on the depicting well there are a lot of have been doing their own thing is they're convinced that this doesn't really get to.
-- Watergate type crisis but that it does.
Prevent the president from doing a lot of the things that he likes to do and that could be -- that -- on and -- it sounds like a perverse logic but.
That is my investment worlds and that's what the Mike.
Investment friends tell me what do you make of that logic.
I think you're spot on the fact is businesses afraid of what Obama can do.
-- what he has done right now Obama is becoming increasingly.
Unable to move his agenda because he's distracted.
I think a lot of people believe he's going to be distracted for a long time so as long as he's not able to get the ball -- the court and who thought the gang.
I think a lot of people in business are saying good we can take.
A breeder we can actually go out and do some things because he's not gonna have time to force some of this crazy stuff down our throats.
What I believe the business world worry about more is when he's able to that go -- and do these campaign stops and actually be effective.
This is a president who I don't think it's gonna have his problems like a beheading it's gonna be the death of a thousand cuts.
And he's prolonging his own pain.
Because he won't step up lay it all on the table and say okay here's everything about Ben Ghazi here's everything about the Associated Press investigation here's everything there is about the IRS.
It's like it ripples out and it's the worst possible situation.
-- this White House.
You know if you don't mind very quickly a governor indulging.
This question that there in this is to the minister Indian.
What do you think happens in group think in in I -- -- otherwise I think.
Do bad things in other words it is IRS agents with a -- or otherwise getting commands from above or otherwise.
I honestly think that what they're doing.
Justifies what they're doing how does that happen what what what leads.
People to -- here from.
A cause to a crime.
-- a lot of it has to do with the fact that government by its nature is insular.
Especially government that is driven by very partisan politics and people truly get to believing their own part press clips and they start thinking.
But they're really really right all the time in the other -- really really wrong all the time.
And once you get to that place -- you cross that threshold.
It becomes easier and easier to lose your moral compass and I honestly think what's happened -- -- some people within the agencies who feel like that they're doing.
The president the country I've got himself a favor.
By keeping these nasty people on the other side from getting anywhere and that's the unfortunate thing.
I think Republicans have to be careful but this Democrats and Republicans alike need to always wake up every morning and say.
We're not right all the time they're not wrong all the time.
And when we have that attitude.
We're always gonna getting ourselves in trouble which is what I -- happened this particular administration they just don't think they've ever been wrong.
That is very well put government through my monitor -- your colleague and more friends.
Mike Huckabee -- -- you sir appreciate it.
