Can track every phone call if they can track every Internet activity -- haven't they can track your credit card they can track your cell phone.
And if they IRS -- gonna have a software package to baucus there enforcement.
The enemies of the president of the United States.
This big brother's got a lot create -- that George Orwell auto whatever -- I ever gonna kick this around -- wanted to ask you about how.
After out maybe a little that's kind of being a part.
The mainstream Republicans -- establishment and the Tea Party actually have a reason to come together now with fresh.
Ideas are fresh ammunition because of the IRS scandal and then the possibility of the IRS.
Well now as in law -- taking over and implementing obamacare so that's definitely yeah.
I think -- Hey it's -- and I don't know if he bought into that you know it's so -- -- -- -- -- I didn't know anybody was paying advance and I don't -- them back way I'm looking right.
You know he was regular basic -- him and -- and it went back -- really get me out ignores -- -- mature out of the present time cable and you can -- -- saying is that Republicans under the big -- have a new renewed vigor to.
Unify again -- come back with Greg wondering if he's making a comment don't worry about but don't worry about Greg what do you think about so he.
So I headed this long cover someone stop -- in the -- didn't -- all the scandals are -- gonna have effect -- -- -- -- and no they did not have an effect on on -- -- but they will have effect.
12014 mid term elections these scandals big -- IRS NSA you know independently would have had much effect but aggregate lead.
You know people are gonna remember remind all the commercials all the political commercials and 2014 and -- you want more of this to want more of these Democrats at the transparency Obama per promise is -- -- happen.
I think what it did was it's going to guarantee the GOP to house again.
And it's gonna actually get some seats in it for the GOP in the senate and really that's more important when in the way dozens.
-- -- -- -- resident skeptic is there with his.
Well -- and any resident skeptic and getting our act together looking at those speakers you've got to fringe of the French -- and that's about the people to come up with -- well it sure I mean they've taken up for those people because -- -- very far over the right that -- by the way -- to see blood demonstration Washington.
Whenever you want -- demonstration the bigger you always use ball lands -- the camera.
The Tea Party is not a very potent force -- this time around I don't think they had obamacare last time.
I just don't think frankly there's that big deal and I think the Republican not more mainstream is running away from my.
Even into this new round scandals -- do you think that.
-- are going to go.
Bob is so wrong.
This this liberal wouldn't President Obama said we are the ones we were waiting for -- this is actually it's.
He inadvertently created a new modern movement and it's I quit what Eric said you okay you start with class warfare -- -- -- obamacare disaster class warfare big -- DOJ IRS and -- say.
The Tea Party is the tip of this aero.
And America actually have to get behind it with that -- stabbed the beast of big government and watch it right -- die the IRS is the beating heart of -- east you gotta do you look at those people Bob I know that you think they're funny looking and whatnot.
But the most explosive thing you're gonna find there's potato salad and the only bomb we're gonna find there's lit bomb people and yet people play you know -- -- -- -- -- -- bombing took place.
What -- Michael Morse suggest that it was people like that that do this step these are good people these this is a wreck at the com -- the sweetest revolution.
And they deserve the respect for being right for the past five years.
You know within metaphor like that of stabbing the beast its no wonder that Republicans are considered the monsters.
And it got to be I wanna let it got a millionaire.
After we listened to some -- that you and I have a crush on and that's a very wise it can't talk about -- I haven't actually have a -- on snapped a.
We see what's happening with the IRS within the -- all -- these huge institutions.
Which are obviously.
Failing the American people.
Being abusive in some cases good corrupt.
This is a time for ideological offensive on the part of conservatives.
The vindication of the idea of smaller government so stop and they look the casing and make the case if for -- if conservatives do they will win.
Can I wanted to ask you are the Republicans just to mired down in self analysis and putting themselves on the couch and wondering what's going to happen to them -- they really mean that they that -- just get together and do it.
Najaf and certain point make the jump pass ideology and jump into action I think that's by the Tea Party is resonated with so many people and I think.
More than anything -- sorry to say they -- -- and you know why it.
They are significant and the guys worst side is afraid of them otherwise why would they be targeting them.
With the IRS and auditing them in making sure that they don't get there tax exempt status.
Did they are fearful because they did have an impact on the mid term elections and they will again because people are tired of the government abuse.
All the problems -- scandals that we've -- but this administration the tea parties addressing a lot of that it never laughed until it is a concern.
For your -- for the for the record I have nothing against these people I think they have every right to protest -- not making fun of them all but they give them what they look like -- give me.
But the forty year and finished up Hanson's -- -- -- the point is are they gonna have an impact in terms of the voting Booth.
I think some of these scandals collectively we'll bring out more people to the mid term elections normally -- there.
That would Nez doesn't do that keep fighting people like the Tea Party who don't like big government it's the vehicle that would do well what else up on the back on the -- but.
There will be an increase in voter turnout and it will not be in the Democrats favor the that is don't think you could consider this resurgent Tea Party movement you can restrict considered resurgence small government.
Isn't isn't that exactly and that exactly what it it the tea parties therefore I mean we beat yours segment you'll agree that.
You know during elections presidential election.
You know you have the right wolf moved to the right during the primaries and then moved to the center for the general all the mid term elections are like the primaries primary.
This all these scandals with what you just mentioned that didn't they turn out more during the -- during the mid term elections.
This is very very good for the GOP scandals happening now couldn't have happened at a better than I -- Let's remember the beach forty million fewer voters at the polls and a mid term election there -- -- -- presidential election.
If you have a million people are billion -- who hadn't been there before and selected in selected states it's -- to distinction will make it different.
I've -- thanks -- that's up to the senate was going to be for the scandal about the -- -- likely be picked up.
-- -- the -- for the Democrats says this is fortuitous timing right the Tea Party has a good message a platform that resonate and there are a lot of facts.
Specific facts and circumstances that right now you're gonna have to aligned with what they're trying to say -- renminbi is government is too big over smaller government.
Less taxation more privatization.
Less expanding -- the government forget about a bomb making exiting the -- -- -- running out this.
Plunged this -- thank you for the Republicans you have -- In this position this is -- your message for.
1020 years I mean I don't see it -- you can get into a coherent kind of message.
And you think you're gonna do it around negatives around there's like scandals of the rest of it does that emphasize a small government think certainly it does.
But I just don't see anybody caring that -- Ford why I.
How about what's at naval picked -- naval picnic table I have -- in depth look at Saturday.
Don't you did admit that you might it would is that what you're laughing at me yeah.
That enabled asides about how did -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It'll get examined -- Bob's name that -- his hand it actually is a positive message that we're talking about here we're trying to I think a limited government is a positive and that's it.
But what Bob is saying is.
You're up against something that is about free stuff the the -- Occupy Wall Street philosophy was make everything free.
Which is something that's -- was hard to argue against unless you have intelligence which is what the what the Republican Party -- -- look.
-- look at how the media's gonna frame this the Tea Party is it most dangerous group.
-- just below the Taliban -- black and Maroon 5.
Why is that because they remind everybody doing their parents and parents -- you off because their right to the media's gonna ignore them.
They're gonna mocked and if there's one poorly spelled sign.
At that rally The Daily Show we'll spend twenty minutes mocking that sign to make -- Themselves feel smarter while ignoring the fundamental.
Issue in the bottom that's a -- and fundamental message which is.
Big government is screwing you and it's time to screw big government can I give a specific to that though it's emily's reaction -- untie this you're gonna be mad about that and that Internal Revenue Service IRS is about to pay seventy million dollars in employee -- bonuses.
Despite the Obama administration center and sequestration let's cut -- not especially spending what they're saying is I got a quote here from the IRS the reason that they have to do.
This is because the IRS is under -- A legal obligation to comply with its collective bargaining agreement blind union which specifies the terms -- towards a page of bargaining unit employees.
Bad timing and here's the problem with this collective bargaining in unions they're inherently flawed when -- the situation like this we have sequestration we're supposed to be tightening about.
And not going at a violate and rewarding bad behavior that's been going on the IRS we're gonna pay you all out bonuses it's the most flawed business model ever because.
It operates as a disincentive why don't I think can't I do my job well because I'm gonna go ahead and get a better job that I had an about a public scandal -- gonna get a bonus or get paid apple -- -- part of the union.
Regardless of whether -- target you know hardworking Americans and declined and that tax exempt status.
You know -- -- so there's a lot of hard working Americans who republic government employees.
You're trying to punish the rest Yaris -- few bad apples -- did want to collective bargaining agreement is in fact an agreement was signed.
It was part of the -- -- well it it's legal and so why is it's it's such a big deal.
Everywhere you look a lot like you think -- persuasive Bob that it and maybe the union from a PR standpoint to the -- In a time a sequestration in a time when our entire agency under investigation.
-- -- even delayed these for three months but they don't do that I don't care -- It -- apartment -- more and observation the NT EU national treasury employees union which is the union that vehicle is is.
Claiming that they needed to be paid because this collective bargaining agreement Bob points out was also the group and a -- last and -- something -- visit the white house on March 31 -- -- and when the very next April 1 April 2 -- the days that they began targeting conservative so was a discussion hate.
Whomever at the White House what if this that -- -- Easter egg roll it wasn't he says hey -- never at the White House if this does come up he's got to make sure that.
That is Chinese affairs even anxiety do you have a hard time commissioner river Q yeah I mean aid but you talked about because they -- to see the president has -- that didn't present okay now.
You guys go start looking into Tea Party groups that we should yeah I thought as well that's just that's just absolutely crazy.
-- exit -- agent you know every I think you know we did that domestic get from this Tea Party thing is that every American needs to get involved in this because -- you -- If you get a target on your back the target oddly enough becomes -- shield because we've learned that the IRS is now getting in deep trouble for targeting people.
And if you decide that you wanna be a target they can't touch you you could bring the iris down that really good advice it's been about I -- Barack -- very good thank you very much I took my -- -- this morning I you are an amendment yeah I don't think that it's not right.
