Fox News contributor entries had -- joins us now to talk a little politics could see a good morning good morning on.
This -- -- story by the way and it in an Ohio does a lot of things to talk about federally and talk with the budget and everything else but -- and said earlier it.
Haven't seen to -- protests -- of Wisconsin but in many ways is more far reaching.
Yet and this is -- theme that I don't think is gonna go way I think it's gonna lead up into 2012 you heard the president get involved in this.
And I don't think this bodes well for the unions after the Wisconsin fight you saw there was a story on CNN saying.
All look the unions won because now they're energized and -- galvanized well look and that's that's the worst -- I've ever heard in my life.
Trying to maintain these big generous packages in an error when we're all having to cut back I don't think is a winning message and I don't think it's one that's gonna resonate.
Well and Tony the public sector union vs the price that's right are you yet and -- that's all off the -- they're retiring.
Comfortably off the backs of taxpayers.
Whose taxes are going up.
To pay for these benefits these health and retirement -- tennis and expand -- -- that's the general sense that you get if you talk to people in the country -- taxpayers are saying look we've all had to have some shared sacrifice were all kicking in money governments wasting the money state governments are wasting the money.
Now you're trying to keep feeding unions no we're not gonna have any part of it.
In Washington the big question has been whether -- -- would have a government shut down we're gonna get some of the deal on the budgeted now it's looking more and more like we will get some sort.
Of an agreement budget cuts thirty billion dollars or more.
I guess -- we avoid all this at the end of the day.
Really never thought I never thought we have a shut down a showdown not a sat down and I think to Democrats as much as some of them want to push this because it's incredible wealth for them.
I think it bodes well for any of them I mean as a conservative I say shut it down shut down Washington shut down the government I love it when they're not doing anything because in the -- -- Any more of our money but that wasn't there is reporting that the compromise would be 33 billiard everything that's there a lot of conservatives -- what you -- com Tea Party has not.
They are not going to be happy with that number -- that because the house bill.
Was 61 billion and that is and you know a little bit it's -- roughly half of that.
Did did their got to be some people who are unhappy.
It's nothing compared to the -- three trillion -- we're working with a three trillion dollar budget -- lot of these members that are unhappy.
Our freshmen they've never had to run for reelection and even when they do there -- safe seats.
So they can go out there and make these claims -- -- we gotta -- a hundred billion I think that was Republicans.
Not I -- -- -- problem.
But I think they did box themselves in when they -- a hundred billion because as you know I know.
From working on the hill it's tough to do anything up there cut anything so 33 billion.
It's a drop in the bucket I think the one who's gonna have -- really -- -- after this market is John Boehner got because he's gonna have to deal with eight very split caucus.
It's a fraction and into the extent that absolutely -- -- so there's a real of that story is real in your view that the Tea Party verses.
The Republican establishment that's a big story.
I think it's it's absolutely true.
Unfortunately I think there's a lot of fiscal conservatives that were elected know they need to come home until their constituents I did what I promise suppressed all this where the president then -- all this is children's -- -- maidan.
Is been involved -- chief staff bill -- involved in these negotiations.
Hello this is these big decisions to me out sources.
The the hearings down -- ground zero he gives these trials on any given to hold her on many give the health care bill -- scenery Dominique give the budget to ride and you know in December he came out he said I'm personally looking forward to working with Republicans we've got -- for.
-- for ever gonna cut the deficit for serious about it we have to look at Social Security.
His but it's a joke it did none of that and so he runs off to Brazil he even goes -- war which is a war when he's in Brazil so.
I don't think it's agreed visual for him -- Democrats and even said where are you we need you.
Well that's if there's gonna bring up on her saying about all of this is a drop in the bucket because there really isn't it's all politics right now because until you deal with social security and Medicare let's thirty or sixty billion dollars.
Mean doesn't matter yet to but it matters more politically to me anyway than it matters in terms of of that of of economics -- wanna go back to the Republican story a little bit because is that a big one that got that going into 2012 if they're not on the same page it affects their ability to beat the president.
Yeah why I think it depends on -- which candidate they put a tip -- you know you have.
Mitt Romney who I think is really.
He's the godfather of universal health care say what you want about -- -- eye you know and he's also is an early front runner and they tend to fade quickly.
Remember George Allen a couple years ago everyone was jumping up and down the establishment candidate saying it's gonna be George Allen as we see now wasn't George Allen -- trump he was on -- Reilly factor last -- a multi part interview on again tonight.
The incredible stuff very compelling but then he starts talking about the president's birth certificate yet the -- at the birthers saying he's got a -- I like Donald Trump.
I like Donald Trump these conservatives and Republicans they -- -- as well -- as a PR stunts.
Only don't like his hair -- conservative enough but I don't know -- the engine off if you're worried about -- you're worried about money issues in this country and you're worried about this country's credit card.
And the danger that didn't add up we don't listen to it the analyst and a Donald Trump you -- like him or not -- -- you'd like his appearance or not he's got the biggest megaphone.
Of any of the candidates who get detention Tim Pawlenty Newt Gingrich now -- Donald Trump if you everybody knows who he is he -- -- like every -- But you're gonna get got a lot of get the Republicans -- to Donald Trump but that's -- if you know -- is my point is not not that I'm endorsing him on a weird that you're not a good spot if you dismiss him if people quickly dismiss him.
I'm not saying that.
It's dangerous for the other you know he's -- yeah he he's a big personality he'll be great to listen to trust me nothing that nothing can make me happier than to cover Donald Trump campaign.
But if you're the Republicans at this point in the cycle against an incumbent president and your turn to Donald Trump that says a lot by drug.
-- -- till I'm just saying let it Republicans have a tough time getting their message out there the president controls the bully pulpit right anybody who wants to help weaken the case against President Obama but when he talks about China.
When he talks about spending I say -- mr.
Do it to stop with the birth -- stuff.
Now Michelle Bachmann she's another when she came out today according -- the daily caller she says I'm serious about this this isn't just a PR stunt.
I like Michelle Bachmann a lot but I think she's got major -- Andy I think she sees him on selling books she does she run on top.
But she's not a serious cat and it does -- you get a little and that the model again I think he's -- Bolster her brand she sees -- making money selling books I sold Mitt Romney governor down in the garage area head Daytona 500 so I did you wonder about the campaign trail right it's a good place by the way I -- to order a cowboy hat the other day and I know it's -- don't tell Imus -- I want -- -- for the show.
And I ordered it off of Amazon and it was so big and so you got to ask you know where did you get one of those no big he had the -- -- -- has back there if you wanna try to I.
Once you know contrary evidence.
Okay -- did you -- there and thank you so much.
