Very much and the other big story that everybody -- to be talking about would be the -- 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 men -- we're almost a -- -- -- saying it.
Michael if she wants to get it out of her system today all the references to the work.
We don't we don't leaner and leaner and -- -- -- so we've 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 know personally -- -- talk show -- everywhere on demanding the major media find another politician that it -- euphemism for the male sex organs into.
Is Dick -- still in the content on.
I think that affect but up.
I wanna say something -- -- -- we were taught at the word angry in his 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 to -- -- and out rilya -- -- that's right and I.
I don't wait to digress I.
I have a jar.
On the top Knot range it -- -- -- got -- -- agrees written on the outside of Aetna and are you or the making -- go ahead Michael.
I got one -- my -- absolutely.
-- -- without -- that you're talking about the obsession with -- and I just -- comfortable saying that on the -- column but it is true.
The media want to talk about -- Democrats because they want -- -- is obviously talk about blush.
Soledad is leader it's like working in a -- the porn industry recovering American politics right now.
-- there's -- 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 they're gonna -- -- scaring you -- congressman -- -- 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 are attempt to go back to the bush era try to drag somehow George Bush into the 2012 election.
It also highlights of fundamental problem that Americans -- which is they never like politicians much they never thought baltics really that good what they do.
We voted for President Obama in 2012 let's when he was basically voted for an 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 from the sample results to stimulus just didn't work in -- I wanna buy and may have been worse.
It didn't work it work -- -- that it would.
On the jobs the jobs are being created about -- obviously statement created.
President Obama -- you -- -- -- big talking about it all the -- -- ATMs in kiosks there'd be more jobs Americans a break.
We would have these cards to its all BB and I'll make him buggy -- to this is not smart talk from Washington but still we care about.
And that we look up and we find out but the one of the top of the class is this dopey if -- we've gotten.
Everything else -- isn't idiot what kind of morons send out pictures of his woke -- really funny now which initially they are.
And Michael he was a top of the class.
His fellow Democrats a lot of and he was not -- is 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 -- -- -- trying to -- and either clearly self obsessed.
And out there on TV all the time and so I think the American people does 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 bought -- -- made the point is not to be a lot of awards he's been relatively prominent for congress' foreign 35 homes and not many years celebrities.
But you think these -- these other people no matter how you slice it.
-- -- -- to the guy who looked in the TV camera and -- for an entire week who attacked everyone disagree with them and lied about they have just adding 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 Americans see this story I think has had an impact the near differently well.
Is going to be.
Do you think the government can handle everything from your grandmother's health care to your kid's education or do you think they're idiots and you can do a better job -- Anthony -- brings the -- issue front and center there are gonna be a lingering -- does that change the dynamic of the -- Rates and there is actually -- -- be -- lingering impact the.
The court says the other thing too which is what is 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 -- -- whether it's lobbying or something to the media -- whatever to make up that.
The losses and revenue but what -- Lighting.
Would love 000 -- up a lot who's gonna hire Anthony wiener mobile this -- all ended up -- -- Writing it up lyrics and has already all the damage on the radio all he would not you know Michael he would fit right in with -- groups and -- -- Other bids smiling Bob losing his job this I would tell me on the invite adds I don't see this guy -- MSNBC we're not -- that the Ed Schultz should be worried about a note from HR that -- gonna hired.
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 at around for something to get everybody thinks always -- you'll never you can't come back from this he may not win but he'll run for something again that's -- logical -- value today.
Nice to I used to run campaigns -- to have to write speeches done that embarrassing but at the right you know speeches and statements and people at 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 buy by pervert.
When it wasn't -- leaving the restaurant I felt much better with the refreshing experience.
One that certain front page of the Wall Street Journal Mike 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 so security has to be cut.
In I think it's actually even bigger news for people 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.
That the -- so bad that even ARP is admitting look we've got to get in this game something's gonna happen in if you close it was asked again and again just on the day.
Where is the democrats' plan Medicare and there.
Or or -- 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 don't -- We can't do this anymore and that's what ARP's news.
Who in the Republican field that now if you watch the debate the other David who and the Republicans hailed the biggest best suited -- cut tackle all this stuff.
Well in full disclosure website anyone but -- dot com I beg my fellow Republicans don't rule him out and often not.
Not think -- not because the bad guy because he breaks.
That if the core issue is gonna be.
-- government doing a great job or not the guy who brought his -- to steal the line from collegial body 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 notable about the party the Tea Party part of the Republican coalition will not accept Romney.
So let's move on and that's that real debate was -- thing to me.
There's I think we've reached the point now.
Where there isn't that the the candidates -- incredible two debates they've looked at several and look pretty good that we're gonna have a real -- This is the opportunity I'd -- it felt like friends -- ready to quit now and panic and it give it front runner quit.
The primary process makes better candidates it gives you a better challenger.
In the general election let these people -- -- and -- if someone writes Michelle Bachmann could absolutely.
Rise up gonna convince the average American -- Israeli presence or she can go down that is that it gonna -- -- new Gingrich may be could reclaim its all gravitas like out -- -- -- That happened -- -- when Newt Gingrich can -- claim his grabbed former grab it cost you believe that what was gonna say Gingrich has but that's not I think.
Do that but I mean you know Gingrich at -- He's not a very appealing candidate I I look at buildings -- the nominee but my point is people the perception people change as they know.
Through the process you're not the same person when you stop at the beginning.
As of the end Pawlenty could rise and it -- -- what a presidential guy Jon Huntsman could excite.
Republicans right now look at him -- basically a.
You know Democrat moderate -- clothing that could all change in the process of my urging the GOP establishment Washington who kids -- and having real primaries please let us have a primary let's go to Pennsylvania -- I don't -- the Democrats -- and.
Are I want not today are Michael talk against in okay thanks -- coming months or let's say you have me.
Michael Graham -- -- -- talk show what's the -- a -- that's right better.
