Is this they think that this is one that -- and -- with the next few days -- few weeks but that this is gonna -- this is a far bigger cancer for the administration.
I guess only time will tell but of the three.
I think this when.
Strikes so much -- -- what America isn't.
And what Americans don't want and what Americans would fear a government that's that's well funded and well staffed -- -- against them.
That is that is something so fundamentally wrong.
I think that it is a big.
Big issue big big issue for all of us -- -- -- big big issue for the presence of big bureaucracy and -- there anyways see that he has.
Any sort of responsibility for other than sort of the buck stops here on the president.
Oh sure he has -- responsibility for I mean.
What what a leader does is when something like that happens he -- that the person fired quote unquote was leaving in a month.
And even -- each submitted its resignation early.
But but when you -- the first all those people obviously did what they did believing that it was.
-- the administration was comfortable with it you -- -- just some real people being obnoxious and stepping on people's rights and and -- just awful you think that this is.
Pop culture I think I think -- -- -- but clearly they thought it was okay.
Any different OK if it's not only not okay it really strikes -- everything.
That that Americans don't want a government that turns against.
And and we'll see but if things keep popping up around the country this personal go on television and say well.
Now that I see what's happening I understand what happened to me.
And they'll -- report that they tried to do this survey made a cut I -- a man who made a contribution to Romney.
Who was called in and ended up spending 60000 dollars for lawyers tried to defend himself against the IRS and he hadn't done anything wrong.
And and harassment by government is is something we -- understand happens and other countries.
And that used to happen here I mean in in cities more and in some states.
But it is a terrible terrible thing and so fundamentally against what we believe it.
We'll see how many people how many organizations.
Will pop up and say well I thought maybe everybody had to wait a year to get approved.
And and they'll pop up and we'll see him on television we'll see him in newspapers.
And we'll know the extent to which this with the problem.
My understanding is that it wasn't just some.
Local Fella in Ohio that that office was the opposite of the lead responsibility.
For managing and approving or disapproving.
All of the requests in that particular.
Highway five -- invest in -- a compared to see how.
The other side of the political spectrum were treated -- did they get jerked around as much did they have to wait this long for me that I think is very tellingly very talent.
The presence respond to brought that up Reza what do.
Think we points if I think that -- the if it has may have a ripple effect on Obama care.
Because Obama -- to be monitored and managed by that same organization internal -- And people are frightened of the -- service because there.
-- -- the in the intrusiveness.
And knowledge they gain about the life and end.
What they're doing with your money and how they do.
So what's gonna happen.
Oh -- I don't know what I think will happen is that that if that was going.
It's possible that more was going and it'll pop up over a period will come out over a period of time.
And people will say I now understand what happened to me and to the extent that happens it won't go away -- What happens Obama -- -- -- it's it's or administered by the -- I think so.
I just cannot -- That people will want that organization.
To be exciting.
That would look at health care.
And your health care circumstance.
And then how you spend your health care care dollars and what's the nature to your insurance.
And what you're spending those dollars so I just can't imagine though that that there will be some change in that.
-- -- -- -- -- That attaches -- security important issues about leaks but now the controversy over the breath and the secrecy of the seizure bid that's about it.
Well about when I heard the attorney general say that he's been in and out of this business for.
But that cater to.
And that in his judgment.
This ranked 12 or three in the most serious breach of security he's ever say.
I said to myself I don't know I'd I don't know what I think about.
There there it's conceivable to me that there could be something that would be -- series.
That the government might do something.
Now what might they have done one way to do it is to go to the leadership in congress and sit down that's been done before and very important matter.
Another way to do it would be to Google fights a court that's votes and and and see if they have the ability to look at something and end.
That it is so -- it takes a group of congressional leaders together and say here's something where we're gonna have to do something we don't want to do.
-- I've been in the executive branch for an awful lot of years and I've never seen anything like that.
Would -- -- CEO president AP issued statements and in his statement he mention the fact that when the AP first said the story.
They consult with the administration and they held the story until they seem to be I would seem to me to be some sort of agreement that the that the danger had passed.
It added that that's -- the last paragraph and so that's sort of a curious thing is that sort of the give and take that I don't quite understand with the administration seem like they were talking.
And they weren't gonna go away and if the AP -- they had it is it's not like it's gonna disappear.
In the end they already knew what -- haven't.
And so I just don't know I want I'll let let the grass grow on that one little bit and -- -- I think about it.
But but I has and one of my rules in the book is if you don't know it's perfectly all right to say you don't know.
