Well will the president of this show some day replace oh.
National review reports that read -- president and former ambassador to the UN John Bolton.
Is being encouraged by GOP leaders against 12016 White House bid that got us thinking well what -- Bolton presidency look like.
Woody -- sleepover in the Oval Office company cancel all other shows except to read I -- mustache is be mandatory for men over eighteen.
Let's ask him about this very important stuff ambassador thank you for coming I would appreciate you being around like -- -- -- -- sympathy booking.
We enjoy having you here.
-- -- he -- -- not to interrupt him you really had -- run for president sacked the I told him that nickel from the gallery and so when I started first up mustache is mandatory.
I wouldn't make anything mandatory yes that's part of my platform.
It's a well that's good I like that already about tax breaks for mutton chops.
I think taxes ought to be as low as we can make them and his flat as we can make them so no tax breaks for facial hair what you that's a good question no we're taught we you know -- this IRS -- Are you prepare flat tax because -- -- I'm confused well.
A flat tax is premised on the idea that the only purpose of taxation is to raise money to run the government and -- we had that kind of guiding principle.
A lot of the distortions that we see would be taken out of the market and the IRS would be a lot small.
And -- fair tax.
I don't know what a fair taxes I think a flat taxes as -- as you can get everybody pays the same percentage.
-- -- get confused -- -- now fair tax -- flat tax -- think isn't -- basically a ticket sales as a sales tax I think is what if you could switch from an income based tax system.
To a sales based tax system that would be better but the way congress works you'd end up with both yet added that -- sort of forget that never met a tax citadel like all what do you need to convince you to run.
Well isn't what what I'm really interested -- is making sure that national security is is at the top of the political agenda I think.
We've gone for four and half years without discussing it and that's got to change we face threats around the world we've seen and we've talked about some -- tonight.
And I think the American people act actually expect their president to defend them.
Yes what do you think -- the would you do.
In terms of changing the foreign policy with people like Syria and Iran.
Well I handed -- got to take these threats seriously and the idea that that underlies Obama's policy which is you can negotiate with all of these people.
Just leaves and greater danger right now we've got a lack of respect around the world that this president campaigned against.
Pointing to the Bush Administration now we can't get Edwards towed back from China.
From Russia pretty soon we won't be able to getting back from Ecuador that's a pretty serious problem -- would you abolished the UN.
No Jeanne Kirkpatrick was once asked if the US should withdraw from the UN she thought about it -- -- and said that's not worth the trouble.
Gap there really -- kind of like you know.
We -- a really ugly grotesque tree in your yard that you realize if you try to remove it it's gonna leave a big weird hole for years.
-- just -- to -- big tree there sorry three.
Probably Kobe's not watching who would be your running this is not necessarily my environmental policy that you just take yeah.
Just for what is your environmental policy I don't really have much of the -- -- But I I know it and I got up that I know that the president's determination to put climate change his climate change policies in effect.
Without legislation through the EPA.
Is -- power grab that's very dangerous.
One more question who would be your running mate and does his or her name -- -- -- -- filled.
Yeah I know of that I haven't gotten that far in my thinking but.
I'd solicit ideas from the American people you know that's how you run you're not supposed to have ideas yourself yeah you're just not very.
You're out for a decade here we got one right here as VP yeah.
While we've already had a first black president may be the first sequential neighborhood the.
I would build a lot of roads anyway I don't you would you build a lot of bridges -- becoming confused.
If sensuality and I would have parties on those bridges with other S agency -- If you run I I got completely lost -- -- -- -- -- -- able to change gender and I had.
You know what happens where you -- serves them yeah.
All right well that -- that started promising.
-- -- -- -- That's not what I tried.
I try to make it serious and thoughtful if you do run I would never invite you to be interviewed by him again -- they -- you we're gonna ask me if I if I left the president's I'll -- -- who would succeed me and I I didn't get to get my hands so who who I have this office for life nothing.
You're gonna hold two offices at the same time all right live for that as well -- get ahead and move on now.
