PR consultant and former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer gave a thumbs-up to the Republican strategy on "Morning Joe" April 1 ahead of this week's showdown with the president over a budget deal.
"[Republicans] need to learn one of the lessons of '95 and know when to declare victory," he said. "They're doing great."
On the Tea Party: "They still have to learn the art of compromise."
On Barack Obama: "If the president doesn't lead, it doesn't get done."
