We're back with the panel we couldn't let Christmas Day -- without -- naughty and nice list to start with bill.
How well you just before the word nice isn't doesn't.
Automatically go with the late Bob Bork.
-- he was really -- nice man beneath his rather gruff exterior and very dry wit he died last week.
And that just ordered.
They respected him here for both of course is incredible public achievements as a law professor legal scholar as a judge as a public servant really principles and courageous public service.
But also that of those of us who knew him really -- wonderful man beneath the very kind of gruff as I say.
Exterior very dry -- I really a -- man at his funeral on Saturday.
The very lovely and dignified funeral and they had -- on the on the program a couple of quotes from saint Thomas More.
-- which I guess and I assume he very much -- And one was -- was relevant to fiscal -- discussion actually what you cannot turn to good he must at least make as little bad as you can.
Which is Thomas -- which is a good very Bob Bork like sentiment I think for guiding yourself in Washington at least make him the bad as little bad as you can.
The other quote from Thomas -- You must not abandon the ship in the storm because you cannot control the winds.
I really love that it was that event in the shipments to the storms you cannot control of the wind so for me yet just from -- -- -- -- for Christmas I wanted to.
-- of -- respect him here.
How about baby boomers -- the baby -- Generation next week we were we -- the greatest generation was saved us from from nazism and actually in the -- really won the war Cold War -- well under Ronald Reagan who was not a baby boomer.
And we seem to have become close to bankrupting the country and have been a very good job of leadership but I hope our.
It's more like our parent maybe tomorrow -- -- their grandparents.
And like -- so for me I'm happy to dump on my fellow baby boomers we're going to be around -- -- The thirty you have to deal of course with the -- Modern us.
Welcome to start with nice and I think nice goes to David Axelrod who ran president Obama's campaign.
You might at first thinking I'm talking about the success of this is be the second time and so he's been a winner in two presidential campaigns but it's really.
On a very human level what he did in honor of his starter which is that David who's had that mustache for more than thirty years shave it off.
To raise more than a million dollars for epilepsy and daughter suffers from epilepsy and David went out of his way to.
You know I think stand up and say here's an opportunity for everyone to turn what was often -- a bitter campaign into something very positive.
And on this Christmas Day I think it was a real.
Example to -- all that you know no matter what who we are what we do some point we're human beings and we can help each other out.
On the naughty one of us on this panel who has a -- actually yeah well.
-- -- Charles as well try a little bit yeah.
-- it this flopped ahead.
A close look at closed today I think if you -- have -- you know.
Opera nobody I would pick the Wayne Lapierre of the NRA -- vice president was in the -- was appalling.
And again a reminder that some people especially the people who sell guns in this country and represented by the NRA.
Are totally out of touch with a crisis in this country about the easy accessibility to -- I wanna ask you know for every person who is outraged by the number of weapons and then that caliber weapons -- -- there's another guy says I deserve to protect my family what do you want me to do call the police.
Yeah I think you're to -- -- but I think I think everybody else has also a right to public safety and clearly.
-- the point where public safety is in danger when people like mr.
lucky you're talking about having to put.
An armed guard in every school I mean at some point -- -- this is really -- we as a society.
Need to -- -- Charles audience.
Will that quote we saw earlier about the negotiation between Obama and today knew what he says I give you 800 billion dollars to it or get -- nothing.
Leo Durocher is a great philosopher.
-- instead nice guys finish last he's a nice guy on the fiscal cliff and -- the worst man on the planet is Bashar Assad 40000 dead.
Because of him and thousands to come after he's driven out of office she can't community nobody is that what is his faith in.
-- -- -- -- three straight series stays in power extremely unlikely he's killed.
Probably to buy his own people if he tries to escape or he could try to escape -- but I -- and that was independent in the twenties and our wide province that's his tribe.
It's sort of walled off with mountains around it and sort of and create a -- country which is possible.
It's on the -- so the Iranians in the Russians could support him.
That I think is the very least likely that it would create the most -- chaos -- a civil war would continue.
Forever but he remains a pariah and a marked man and he should be and whenever he gets he deserves and I don't think it's going to be a good ending.
Panel thank you very much that's gonna do it for the -- with -- stay --
