Sixty minutes interview with president that did not see the sixty minutes -- It was added on line.
Talking about campaign ads by the way back to our previous discussion.
In the peace.
Steve croft notes that this interview in that room at that time happened quote.
Did the President's Day was dominated by foreign affairs the attack on the Libyan consulate that left the US ambassador -- three others dead had occurred the night before.
When that interview took place -- back -- the panel okay bill that part didn't see the.
Didn't say that's a wonderful statement by President Obama I'm Barack Obama and I'm not responsible for my campaign is saying if they have -- if they occasionally go over the line -- a reasonable guy just.
That kind of excessive partisanship.
Look he's a good politician you know you watch that you think you know he's got a reasonable guy an effort to some problems with some of this adds but you know it's a huge campaign is visiting president become -- the view.
It is that time to personally review of those ads.
So again it's one of these things where if someone will Levy called you know is the Romney campaign got -- really -- make a serious.
Effort now to take his worst as Obama's was misleading -- And wrapped them around is that I'm that we -- and by the Northern Virginia watch the nationals games every you know second or third inning as an ad saying that.
Mitt Romney will raise taxes on middle class families by 2000 -- I think it's a pretty effective that's a pretty well done -- I have yet to see your responses from the -- -- the sensitive time of my neighbors think their taxes are gonna go up 2000 dollars if Mitt -- -- presence of -- rowdy campaign you can get defeat them by his.
Not even a response I'm -- that want.
Well I think that both sides have ads that have been questioned and widely.
Answer the question becomes.
At what point is it just politics are you know this is hardball and sometimes your feelings -- -- get hurt sometimes things that are said they're a little over the line or not quite there.
In terms of being fact check.
I think what the president said was look sometimes they -- his campaign has gone over the line in his opinion.
But he thinks it's just.
The nature of politics.
-- when -- well.
-- -- No -- their bios they have been watching these nets games and I that it assaulted by this same bad which is around is gonna race.
Taxes on the middle class.
Based on a string of assumptions not of which are true.
Let's just explain that I don't -- -- -- have strangled down in the -- this week on this very issue.
It's based on a policy.
Paper that was put out assuming that the Romney.
Does closes the loop holes.
And does not find all the money it needs by doing so thereby has to raise taxes.
On the middle class to find all of the money.
-- needed to make -- revenue neutral.
But it doesn't have but it doesn't it doesn't in anyway to do that.
You can do it by increasing the number by decreasing the number of deductions and exemptions by widening the -- The idea that you're gonna end up with a tax increase on the middle class as a pure.
Is -- conclusion based on assumptions about what Romney's gonna do which -- simply aren't true and the other half of that.
Is Obama accusing.
Accusing saying -- he's gonna lower taxes on the rich.
Now as we saw on the clip earlier in the show Romney trying to explain on the airplane.
That he wants to lower the rates on the rich but he -- has made a pledge.
That the absolute amount the amount of revenue overall that the ritual -- -- -- share.
Of the revenue -- that the richer people remain Hussein but.
Bill's right Romney says that off handedly in an interview.
On an airplane.
And he's got a thousand ads running against him that he hasn't -- who's gonna know that it's only -- decrease in rates and that a decrease in the amount of the rich are paying overall.
I -- if you lower the rates you painless no I don't even think and let me just say I don't -- through the thing that stands out from the sixty minute interview they kept asking him.
What loopholes what deductions he would not think the right -- and I got a good way to they're really said the work with congress on the specifics.
Yeah you work -- -- about the angels are in the policy.
Ignore the devil in the detail right I don't need to say that it looked like this you know what a giveaway and I'm not gonna tell you what I'm gonna do.
Tax reform that with the rates did not increase -- If you broaden the base and lower the rates and you end up at the same idea I prompts this week we're getting into the -- there's going to be an -- -- might even pull -- chalkboard I'm not sure that's it for the --
