It's a former senate Republican leader Trent Lott who knows this pattern very very well and warns the president not to get too -- Senator.
The White House is -- -- these phone numbers and say hey we just dodged a bullet went in and.
Well some of the Democrats that are in congress -- probably doing that too but I would caution him about two things number one.
Polls are a little bit of a lagging indicator.
I'm gonna be surprised -- a week or two weeks from now if his poll numbers are still where they are today but yeah.
Something to make them go down right and and maybe the public has determined but once they got that that's in his latest over the I don't like to Cyrus night at -- all -- -- they did it smells that I haven't.
But -- but.
They do not attach the president.
Well but they've been -- thing that was thing I was gonna say you've got to look.
Beyond the headlines about what polls say look down in the polls the people are not satisfied the way the Obama administration as cattlemen Ghazi.
They are uncomfortable about RS anyway.
This is -- kind of thing of the IRS.
Could could very well so again quicker than he would have been gotcha thing but that is had longer time to have an effect.
And then you throw in this.
I think it is becoming a -- a culture of intimidation and harassment it's going beyond.
You know just you know IRS now it's -- -- by the way was it should watch the news media say all of sudden -- We don't like the looks of this when it actually affected the news media to so I was.
Yet or you're right that's -- -- -- interest in it but you know yeah you need something there to be there right you need something to stick otherwise.
These are a lot of disparate scandals and messes.
And embarrassing ones at that I don't -- appeared we've had so many at the same time attached to the White House whether deliberately or not.
But but but something it's got to stick that intensity to White House direct involvement or worse cover up that's what made Watergate explode right.
Well what they're what they're saying now so what we did know anything about that well they didn't know anything about what was happening in -- Gaza at the state or apartment -- well they didn't know what was going -- RS although.
There are some signs are beginning to come out may be that people in the White House or in the administration did -- -- earlier.
You know and that was the Justice Department not us on -- but they have a cumulative effect to the began to people begin -- -- a minute.
It is this a competent administration and.
Or else have you -- -- -- kind of worried that the risk is Republicans.
Get a little too overzealous here and and and today very.
Very big kill -- -- because they look like -- to opportunist that.
That's right and they need to be careful not -- -- -- old fox earlier today and he was taken just the right to hold.
Let's let's don't -- -- -- and do what looks like partisan politics.
Let's do our job.
Let's keep ask -- questions just keep pushing forward on it.
But don't let it get -- where it looks like always -- is just politics -- -- worry about it.
But what all what went -- -- with an RS.
Was not yet it was politics all right but it was politics at IRS the most dangerous the hook it entity and agency.
In the federal government in many people's minds so I have.
I do mentally IRS you hit the nail -- -- had that terrible years you know but a lot of people the senator that.
Thank you very much different very good seeing you again Trent Lott to -- you again thanks horrid.
