I think that Republicans are trying to figure out right now -- it's either April Fool's Day or Christmas because the real whistle blower.
To the fact that the present has been.
-- rather -- can -- with all this hysteria about -- has been Bob -- none other than the gold standard of modern mainstream journalism.
Who has -- held there in account once in a -- pop up price of politics now and an op Ed in the Washington Post.
His real intimate knowledge of the fact that the -- was president Obama's idea formulate and along with Jack -- now secretary of the treasury at the time.
But in advisor inside the White House and the whole idea really was never to be and then.
Article or rather a mechanism to raise taxes it was really meant to force Republicans to the table -- -- avoid didn't.
As I mean -- -- that such a bad idea it's a great idea and I think that to be honest with you.
I think we're making a lot more about this and we should first of all 85 billion dollars out of what was what -- -- trillion dollars in spending each year if we can't -- 85 billion dollars to cut.
In a way that makes sense into the across the board -- -- -- -- this question if we can't find that we have big problems.
But this conversation I do believe that the president and the Republicans need to come together for bigger deal.
And we need things like a -- to force our hand because otherwise that don't know how -- Position and I don't like -- well I don't know what I've been the front.
Limbaugh clearly is that if it was set there is this sort of doomsday scenario in this sort of damocles hanging over everybody.
It's very well still getting together and doing a deal -- I don't know who's to blame more than any other side.
But for in my view that all to blame it all completely useless and they are all.
Failing the American in a moment -- -- let me get Bryant some credit he's taking the position exactly opposite of President Obama that I had acted within.
Proclaiming this doomsday scenario in the -- were to take -- back and by the way it's not 85 billion anymore it's now 44.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- and they're actually -- -- right up my mind that kind of modest spending cut most of which asleep at the come from the Department of Defense might fool some.
From George McGovern -- we've always -- Democrats that he got to cut the -- that's right then.
I think we have a much more structural problem in government -- look the one word on testimony Jonathan and the reporting that I think is damning.
Is that it does actually assign blame to the president and his failure of leadership and help until the election it was fine for the president to be a salesman that's to be understood.
But at some point like Reagan did like Clinton did you have to come to the table and -- But a deal as the leader of the country not the leader of the party and the president has yet fail to do it.
And the fact that he's meeting on the last day that there possibly could have been a -- so talent seriously was about achieving one.
Getting there will get into the -- Bob Woodward reporting I must come that I played in a moment of the -- -- by -- that he was threatened by Gene Sperling who has Brit Hume pointed at.
Not exactly the most correct -- that and I saw James -- we should get a still -- -- -- to put up there if you got an email from this man saying you might regret -- would you be scared Barry is look this agreement does not mean he looks like a bespectacled -- which you have to be.
I action that almost -- National Economic Council director of how.
Up but really it doesn't but that that the whining about the threatening and everything we gonna get into that and the biased actually got to the -- play the -- to the point of his reporting I would say is what you.
Go home run you make you want my thing about Bob Woodward was only going to be if anybody thinks ball would would.
Is an unbiased journalist and he mole they need to do is go back to the 1996 book the choice right -- did that ahead though the election.
Which -- Bob Dole against Bill Clinton running for a second term you only need you to read chapter one of that to see -- -- what is coming from.
So let's not really enjoy what gave may have been the -- -- and I don't criticize the man who broke the Watergate scandal.
-- let's not pretend he's behind him right after the -- analyst and he goes after everybody well.
Russell if what he was doing the direct comparison it was very much we'll -- I think let's try to let our league I thought I'd make that point what public decide about a smaller -- you -- I guess you're right as.
