Very much and the other big story that everybody -- to be talking about would be the this resignation of congressman Anthony Weiner of new York and joining us now from Boston radio talk show host and Imus in the morning regular Michael Graham and if we're almost a -- -- saying it.
Michael if she was to get it out of her system today all the references to the work.
We don't we don't -- -- -- Weiner Weiner Weiner it's always been working our way through that.
And if you don't even for us we're just we're running out of ways to talk about it and be funny so maybe it's a good thing it's going away.
No maybe I don't -- personally about talk show -- everywhere I'm demanding the major media find another politician and if it was a for the male sex organs into.
Is Dick -- still in the content on.
I think that but I wanna say something everytime I huge we were taught what the word -- -- earlier data and every time I hear you say the word Greece.
All I can think is ribs that was me what you know it's when it comes on the -- and out -- -- -- that's right and I.
I don't wait to digress I.
I have a jar.
On the top knot range it hammed it got to where agrees written on the outside of that that's -- or the -- -- then go ahead Michael.
I got one -- my -- absolutely.
Can't go without it.
They -- you're talking about the obsession with -- and I just -- -- saying that on the -- column but it is -- The media wanna talk about -- Democrats because they want to change is obviously talk about -- Soledad as leader it's like working in a porn the porn industry -- American politics right now.
-- there's just there's a story line is going on I think people that focusing on.
The Democrats think they have the upper hand on the issue of Medicare that -- you -- scaring you bribe a congressman -- is -- throwing granny off the cliff in the in the ads that they made.
And that Americans want to talk -- that but.
We -- isn't just a distraction.
From they -- attempt to go back to the bush era try to drag somehow George W.
Bush into the 2012 election.
It also highlights of fundamental problem that Americans -- which -- they never liked politicians much they never thought -- really that good at what they do.
We voted for President Obama 2012 that's when he was basically -- -- -- untested guy would probably Smart you know they'll pick it up on the fly.
But -- at an economic standpoint setting everything else I have not worked out he has not made Smart moves at least for the sample and results the stimulus just didn't work in one I -- -- it may have been worse.
It didn't work -- it worked -- said it would.
On the jobs the jobs are being created -- metallic obviously statement created.
President -- on TV the other big talking about it all the travel these ATMs and kiosks there'd be more jobs Americans a break.
-- would have these cards to its -- -- helmet and buggy whips to this is not Smart talk from Washington but still we care about.
And I would look up and we find out but the one of the top of the class is is dopey if he -- guy -- Everything else aside isn't idiot what kind of -- sends out pictures of his will not really funny now until they -- Michael he is a top of the class.
Asked his fellow Democrats a lot of and he was not -- something I said last week he was a show pony and not a workhorse right today his fellow lawmakers didn't like him because he was he was out there are trying to create a -- clearly self obsessed.
And out there on TV all the time and so I think the American people just look at it like glad he's gone so -- It doesn't make them hate Washington any more than they are needed.
I don't know -- what first caught YouTube unit made appointees ought to be a lot of awards he's been relatively prominent for congress' -- 35 homes and not many years celebrities.
But you think these these other people no matter how you slice it.
-- -- -- -- the guy who looked in the TV camera and -- for an entire week who attacked everyone -- disagree with -- and lied about they have just -- on to his bacon.
The sticking with the pork -- -- he's.
This is the guy when you think -- Washington this is the level of competence and integrity that.
And Americans see this story I think has had an impact -- their -- when he well it is going to be.
Do you think the government can handle everything from your grandmother's health care to your kids' education or do you think they're idiots and you can do a better job in Anthony -- brings the -- issue.
Front -- senator they're going to be a lingering impact does that change the dynamic of the race.
Race but there is actually going to be lingering impact the.
The -- -- the other thing too which is what does Anthony Weiner do now -- -- he has no experience.
No leadership never at a private sector job unfortunately the Democrats or -- have Barack Obama so he -- be their nominee in 2012 well other than that job what is it gonna do.
Well he didn't make very much money obviously in congress so he probably wouldn't -- me whether it's lobbying or something to the media or whatever to make up that.
The losses and revenue but what -- -- Would love 000 -- up a lot who's gonna hire Anthony we know he'll -- a -- all ended up.
-- Writing it up lyrics and it is already -- an -- on the radio all he would not you know Michael he would fit right in with diet groups and -- -- Other bids smiling Bob losing his job the -- -- on the invite adds I don't see this guy -- MSNBC we're not at that Ed Schultz should be worried about a note from HR that who's gonna.
Hired as well you know what he'll do though is he'll he'll be back in politics that's that I take away from that speech yesterday's get a run for something to get everybody thinks -- he's -- you'll never you can't come back from this he may not win but he'll run for something again that's a logical way earlier today.
Nice to I used to run campaigns nice to have to write speeches done that embarrassing but had to -- you know speeches and statements and people had things going on in your life.
That was an attempt to reboot I don't think it's gonna work but it won't say it was a delight -- someone shouting bye bye pervert.
When it wasn't -- leaving the restaurant I felt much better with a refreshing experience.
One that -- in front page of the Wall Street Journal my god I have wanted to bring this up with the U.
Arguably the most powerful lobbying group in Washington in this country has cut its opposition.
To cutting -- security.
And that's got a shock any liberal and any Democrat that they are quietly stepping up and saying we want to be part of this discussion and admitting -- security has to be cut.
In I think it's actually even bigger news for people who watch Fox Business are looking at the economic future get any doubts.
About how bad this you know coming train wreck of debt is.
If you didn't believe the 100 trillion dollar number that's been affixed to our future liabilities on Medicare.
Pensions and Social Security.
That that is proof positive.
The department so bad that even AARP is admitting look we've got to get in this game something's gonna happen and if you close it was asked again and again just -- -- day.
Where is the democrats' plan Medicare and -- it.
Or or foreigners at our plan is Medicare in other words no changes -- -- changes won't work it is truly going broke this isn't.
You know paranoid libertarian talk from the 1980s this is real -- -- with moderate you know sober minded.
Generally pro big government people looking at the tablet -- track which can't do -- anymore and that's what ARP's news.
Who in the Republican field then if you watch the debate the other David -- and the Republicans hailed the biggest best suited -- -- -- tackle all this stuff.
Well and full disclosure -- a website anyone but Mitt dot com I beg my fellow Republicans a little -- -- not and not.
Not -- -- not because the bad guy because he break it if the core issue is going to be.
-- government doing a great job or not the guy who brought his -- to steal the line from -- -- -- care system mean he's just he's a disaster.
I don't know as you know I've been early on the Tea Party go to book about -- party the Tea Party part of the Republican coalition will not accept Romney.
So let's move on and let's have a real debate was -- -- to me.
-- I think we've reached the point now.
Where there isn't that the -- candidates -- incredible two debates they've looked at several that look pretty good that we're gonna have a real fight.
This is the opportunity I've been -- it felt like friends who -- ready to quit now and panic and it give -- front runner quick.
The primary process makes better candidates it gives you a better challenger.
In the general election let these people -- -- -- and -- if someone -- Michelle -- -- absolutely rise -- -- convince the average American -- Israeli -- Or she can go down that is that it does a -- that Gingrich may be could reclaim his old rabbit dot -- out -- what what what.
That happened what can we Newt Gingrich can re claim his grad former -- -- cost you believe that what was gonna say Gingrich has buttons.
-- Do that but I mean you know Gingrich.
He's not a very appealing candidate I I look at buildings and the nominee but my point is people the perception people change as they go.
Through the process you're not the same person when you stop at the beginning.
As of the end Pawlenty could rise -- -- is that what a presidential guy Jon Huntsman could excite.
Republicans who right now look at him -- basically you know Democrat moderate cheap clothing that could all change in the process of -- urging the GOP establishment Washington who kids' day and having real primaries please let us have a primary let's go to Pennsylvania -- -- the Democrats that and.
-- -- -- not play Michael talk against scene okay thanks for coming on so really what's been happening.
Michael Graham during the Reagan talk show -- -- the -- that's right better.
