1 -- on good morning mr.
Imus I -- I can't wait for springtime I think I love springtime in New York it is government's watch you know what.
I think it was gates Elise who wrote about walking down the street in new York and in the springtime you see the women in the short skirts again in the wind is.
Yeah I caught on.
I'm we're now.
And then you got you know I mean in Washington we get cherry blossoms -- the only problem is the airplanes that it's a little turbulent -- Why does go on current markers central -- -- -- Bob -- and -- The intrusion start to bloom yes -- and a first entries are -- the not to cherry blossom but there are the sort of like like apple blossoms.
All of them pitiful.
You know the colors like -- things like the start popping up.
You told me you only lived in new York and Connecticut but in Washington DC it's like a garden so I grew up in Brooklyn.
And I just am amazed that there that many.
Trees and flowers and in -- it's like a kaleidoscope of color might -- you know god is good but I believe.
Childless and I even if they think that -- -- this way why.
Now triple around a conference let them off the Tucson or wherever there are in Texas -- Overturn -- treason and -- that central parts bought 801 anchor tenant of whatever those.
-- -- remorse and you know.
You have some great botanical gardens in New York program botanical garden Bronx botanical gardens -- So laws as -- the president spent just -- our -- a little -- -- I sure did.
-- -- Washington Durham and a vice president falsely.
A lawyer about the same age spectrum restaurant and if so what did the well the president signs that there's such -- -- -- Well yeah I mean made sense is a political statement and I think that's the criticism coming from the Republicans and it's rightly so that.
The president didn't lay out any numbers he didn't say specifically here's what I plan to cut what he said it would be a process on the two big items big items obviously -- health care spending Medicare and Medicaid.
Paul Ryan the Republican budget committee chair in the house.
Did I think humans work and saying here's exactly how I would do it and also put his neck on the line by saying -- first and he's opened himself to some criticism not just from Democrats in the Obama crowd.
But from Republicans -- gonna have a vote in the house today on that Ryan proposal.
The Republicans need you know 217.
Votes or some -- -- -- they're gonna lose -- Twenty votes I would think because they're people who realize that the seniors in the country don't want Medicare.
And that his plan definitely messes with -- you know sends it makes it this kind of premium deal where you only get of so many so many dollars.
At the cost increase that's our new buddy you're out there in the woods by yourself.
And he's certainly gonna get a vote from people who have any concerns about the poor because basically he block -- it back to the states and in the states are gonna have a race to the bottom Imus and I don't.
I don't see how that's gonna be so compassionate so President Obama he played to the middle he said he's balanced he's rational he's reasonable I think most.
Voters in the countries -- that's better than that you know put -- in.
Budget on the chopping block especially if it means my programs -- -- Similar to -- Sharon sacks as a -- molecular Ronald rile him.

Well that's that's true -- you know whether things is that people say well he's looking at all these deductions and closing these loopholes even mentioned you know.
What about the housing deductions you know that's kind of all American apple pie but I think -- start and that there is.
On people who.
By these huge mini mansion -- the mentions of the world that are they get the same deduction as a guy who's behind middle class house.
But it's not popular so there's that there's a real negative for the president also let me just say.
Sported here replied when it came to Social Security you that you can -- thing about it obviously that's a huge cost.
-- -- -- -- I don't think there's much doubt about it you see any Republicans -- -- now.
-- the problem west work around but also I think if you're a really great Republican candidate -- -- -- people like Chris Christie.
May be Nikki Haley down South Carolina.
You know Marco Rubio the new senator from Florida.
Paul Ryan who I think to really tracked the camp there on Tripoli -- I had somebody tell military -- -- member of tornadoes and Charles.
Bet the the -- party people and I'll just.
But not just five or six races with placards -- doesn't that it encompasses a majority of Americans hear the -- and -- ally and Nate.
And and they show the sentiments of the Tea Party -- -- not be the man -- be Tea Party members.
Aren't all of our friends in Texas or the next -- But all.
Wrong so -- -- be a foursome and they show little support of president -- Correct remember I think a lot of that energy came -- -- that's ghost town hall meetings -- in opposition to Health Care Reform is Obama designed that.
But what we see in terms of the polls is more people are we're of the Tea Party right now.
Fewer people like the Tea Party right now and I think there's been a change in the atmosphere since last long walk -- -- hot -- on the spot right.
But what I'm saying that even people who don't like to Tea -- right percent.
Still share their batters and Jews and migrate -- it's in the Wall Street Journal you know people wanna jump up and down -- -- an article that if you go to Karen yeah I mean no suggestion of Nationalists under a lot of as a slight question and -- who -- not enough to let me just say.
For a man who's on the -- many hours days you are now it's okay.
