Hey Neil good to be with you again.
You know so they the problem with.
-- the Republicans and Democrats and we failed to listen to the people.
And often -- -- -- people will tell you what needs to be done.
I -- what's going on here is typical Democrat behavior.
On the Republican side.
Republicans -- pretty much have I've always -- We've always followed a philosophy.
A philosophy of limited government less taxes less regulation etc.
That is a philosophy if we continue to follow or we will win and we wanted to pass the Democrats on the other hand have no philosophy.
They -- have this kind of approach to politics that put their finger up to -- there to see which way the wind is blowing.
Ed and the wind is always -- for in their favor if they have it our opportunity to spend somebody else's money.
And the people spoke in Massachusetts they simply don't like this type of socialistic kind of government and the Democrats better listen.
But you know very I have among my many crackpot theories when -- goes back to maybe you when your dad -- the point.
That they feel that a year ago Republicans had to be Republican -- memory -- criticizing that talked at the time that.
We don't have to be like Democrats who don't have to compromise and -- overly you know call optimal we just go back to our roots that made -- great.
-- Leo you turned out to be right that's what they did they went back to the party.
You know of your dad and you know.
I think you know twisted sense in reverse Democrats are thinking that we don't have to be like Republicans we don't have to -- -- cooperate.
We can just return to our roots and deal we are.

Well there's a lot of nuances in politics let's face it -- -- it's not aptly black and white.
But if you break it down Republicans have a philosophy.
They're not issue -- -- have a philosophy and if you have a philosophy.
-- conservative philosophy it it it spread -- -- allows a lot of people to come in and I think we stick to that philosophy of our message.

It's it's it's the lousy -- Democrats who prompted them getting on third -- so.
What I'm saying is but but are Republicans over leaping here and then interpreting out of this more than is there.
We will learn from our mistakes BO and is -- Newt Gingrich pointed out we did very well in 1993 united for.
We came to an -- people a contract with America which was reduce the size of government and influence an intrusion in your lives.
After that we kind of went crazy we lost -- -- we lost our philosophy.
And along came Obama.
And he said we're gonna have Cheney won't change from what changed from the bush administration and the congress that it that -- actually against our philosophy.
-- No Child Left Behind.
And prescription drugs and a doubling of the budget.
We wish we would do -- -- behaved and we got smacked and we got -- we got thrown out of office and -- the American people were not asked that rewarded change from the Bush Administration.
But -- I don't want this kind of change that is being presented to them by the Obama administration so if you stick your guns as -- as a Republican.
We're gonna do well the next elections because the Democrats they have nothing really to offer except more of what they've been offering -- so far and the American people don't want that.
Well -- my hat's off to you were -- LSU and -- -- that Republicans had to change do away he said no they don't but you were right then we'll see if you're right now -- always good seeing my friend thank you very much.
