“So all I can tell you is, that unless we get a strategy from, you’re going to a get strategy from us. And I appreciate our wisdom and knowledge and information and all of the great things — with the exception of some to my left here — but the fact is, it’s not our job. It’s not our job. It’s yours,” he said.
