All welcome thank you so much for being -- Bret -- superstar from the Fox News Channel all the host of special report Brett thanks for.
-- in this morning at Hornaday is great to talk C particularly when there's there's so much to talk about but first and foremost.
The mosque controversy.
Here in New York City it is not dying down it's on the front page of the New York Post and the daily news but then that the -- But above the fold top of the Washington Post.
This story there is how this is really an issued this seems to be spreading to other parts of the US so.
Brett what do you make of the impact politically particularly with the mid term elections coming.
I think it is going to have a back it's not something in the White House want it.
I don't think going into this that this became such an uproar.
But I think it will have an effect.
In the at least some races where some.
Republicans may ask their opponents Democrats.
Do you stand with.
The president -- stand with Democrats who believe that this -- should be.
You're ground zero that said it it it goes the other way too there are some Republicans are trying to distance themselves.
From even the opponents of the this mosque so I think it is going to have a factor in certain races on -- race by race basis but.
It's clearly gained a lot of semen taken a lot of oxygen out of a pretty slow August and Washington.
Right it where it raises the issue of why President Obama waded into did.
The controversy to begin -- I think you know that the big big question 64000 dollar question on that Ramadan dinner the F start dinner at the White House why -- -- Way to end -- that and then the next day.
Off for a clarification or re calibration of those remarks saying he wasn't playing in on the weekend they'll vote putting the mosque.
Near ground zero it was very confusing.
For his supporters.
About where he actually that I still think that we will see in interviews some place where the president asked specifically you know what about the wisdom.
To put the mosque there.
-- what do you think about that so I think.
We have yet to see the president fully weigh in on this.
Certainly not helping his poll numbers which is a critical part of what you cover every day.
Yeah and you know as you know -- I think a lot of poll numbers directly elect the economy.
And those numbers that.
Folks are looking at the -- looking at -- -- Looking at the their neighbor dealing with losing his job and I don't know how much the mosque is the second overall favorability rating but.
I think you're gonna see some differing opinions about how he's handled this from the beginning.
Speaking of the economy -- lot of coverage about how investors it was in the near times yesterday about how investors seem to be abandoning.
Stocks and and reports out about.
Administration policies that could call -- job cuts.
Financial regulatory reform Wall Street Journal today talking about -- Wall Street layoff people the moratorium on oil drilling and the jobs at risk.
What does the administration do when they come back from summer break what do the Democrats do to really focus on job creation if they have any ammunition left at all.
Yeah I think you know -- in -- -- -- real.
Question about the way forward and and there is no appetite on Capitol Hill -- stimulants again any kind of that.
You know there was a real push back about this point six billion dollars.
In the eighth with state.
And I think you're that the grab bag of possibilities.
Really are not are not there and I think the Democrats are going to have to have.
A re calibration of their message to say here's what we've done -- and that.
We've saved or created as they've said since the beginning two point the three point six million jobs.
That's not thinking -- except that for a long long so they're running out of time and most analysts here in Washington believes that.
There's the -- -- kind of cat.
On what people think about the economy already heading into -- Do they had to deal with the bush tax cuts before the mid term elections would expire at the end of the year.
Yes I think you're gonna see that in September I think you'll see.
You know when congress comes back in this session on September 13 you're gonna see.
Then deal with the fact that immediately and that is these big factor these big question about whether they're going to.
Eliminate the highest year.
-- -- of the the bush -- -- going that is that they they will at least if it was the administration and Treasury Secretary Geithner.
And that gives is certainly the -- -- I'll ammunition going into the election do wisdom of raising taxes when an economy is suffering and speaking of that.
Two major primaries to talk about Florida and Arizona brat on Tuesday what to watch they -- Yeah I mean that some interesting races if you look at Arizona.
It looks like John McCain is going to win -- running away accorded the latest polls.
But he has -- Point one billion dollars on that race against JD -- That's the most of anybody this cycle.
He's also had to really shore up his conservative.
-- Special and immigration.
In Florida we thought at the beginning -- -- the Republican race between Charlie Crist Marco Rubio was really going to be the knockdown drag out race.
Of course -- -- and it now what the Democrats.
Kendrick Meek against Jeff Green it's been neck and neck it looks like me is pulling it out.
But anything can happen in an anti incumbent.
