Chicago style -- no style.
To former Republican House majority leader Tom DeLay Tom what do you make of this.
Well -- Congressman that -- and Massa -- -- full of himself.
To say that they get rid of me and -- bill's gonna passes.
There's a little bit overstated.
They still got a lot of votes to go.
But what you're seeing in I don't know what the truth of the matter is -- but what you're seeing here is the Democrat party is imploding.
Especially in the house.
At -- fighting amongst themselves the numbers are terrible.
You've got anywhere from thirty to fifty members that are in trouble politically back home.
You don't CNN has you don't see -- -- as the deciding vote by the way it's on as a speaking view it was during an -- together.
We are getting a copy of the letter that he did send two speaker Pelosi which I quote here.
Our right to inform you that it's 5 PM Monday march date.
I will resign my position -- -- represented toward the twenty ninth congressional district actually.
That's what that was and that's -- And so you confirm what we -- all suspected anyway.
You say he wasn't the deciding vote that that there are plenty of other deciding votes -- gone the other way.
Yeah I guess they've got about 200 maybe 205 votes right now.
They need another ten.
12 now -- good evening and again means.
-- unless the American people come.
Bailing on on to the hill in Washington DC they could very well again it.
I would put -- -- -- -- that this is.
This is the reason I haven't so much trouble is is that leadership.
Nancy Pelosi this strong arm being that they always do is coming back to haunt her I mean she barely pass cap and tax.
She barely passed the -- the health care bill out of the house.
She breaking arms and every time you do that.
And it comes back to haunt you I'm I'm starting to wonder if Nancy Pelosi is going to be around -- speaker next year.
They get out -- -- -- -- and enjoy any sort of evolve and it's the blows his -- I've never heard or gotten reports are she accosted.
A congressman in the shower over -- vote like these reports of Rahm Emanuel.
Residents that you -- staff.
You know is it -- ugly.
But with congress enough over budget vote last fall.
-- and and get nasty in the -- now.
On a variety -- levels that upsets me.
For one think it's impossible to take notes.
And for another it's I think it's it's it's discreetly.
What happens all the time particularly with the Democrats they're very tough.
But -- and an eight iron to visit visit him in the old executive office probably.
For White House.
And so -- -- the oil away.
Into the capital.
To work out -- you really express intention.
-- let this guy.
Well he's he's working out in the house -- so he can rub elbows with the members and keep its contacts.
And his relationships up Harry Reid works out in the house -- So.
There -- aliens to work -- anyone get carte Blanche you can Oregon and we want.
-- you try not to do a whole lot of business there and one night when I worked out every morning there the members knew that I was there to work out not to be bothered.
The members use that build relationships end and get their work done and what.
Certainly -- and you -- -- -- he sounds like got a bad scene out of the difference I mean yeah you got.
You've got this guy rather -- it was upset with the way.
Congress amounts -- voted on a budget not to.
Much the administration's -- He goes all the way from the White House.
So it's it's due to work out -- take -- -- and obviously time that's our would this guy.
Seated soon slap and I've been not literally not that we know but I need you -- -- -- on that so many levels that's unsettling.
Whether this unsettling and and and it's on selling to watch the Democrats work but this is how they do things that.
I mean and and 'cause you never -- you know that a congressman in this out.
No you never know that a congress woman in -- I don't -- -- but I would never use that shall remote -- Now I never used -- -- -- from a -- -- myth that I had.
Act where the vote I worked with members and took care of their problems before they got to the floor they had ownership in -- I didn't do what Nancy Pelosi does.
Right the bill than are in her office throw it -- committee chairman.
Had a committee chairman throw -- Vatican committing go to the floor and then break members arms to.
Do you and pass it that's that's that's the way they did face and is coming back to haunt them well.
Here's a guy who would do leaving him and in the -- -- got some but I digress.
To highlight video -- I had.
And then had the hammer and hammer was given to me by the Washington Post and -- tonight for a compliment believe I could cut and was criticized the way I do not want the physical and on Tom DeLay great seeing effects of stuff and I.
-- that -- thanks for having.
