7:33 am
just though unprecedented -- if you look at any chart the obstructionism is just -- off the charts compared to any other administration ever, right? >> yep. it was designed from the very beginning by mr. mcconnell to prevent anything going through that would make president obama look good. and he has worked at it every day since the president was inaugurated. >> well, as he told us. but, you know, what i wonder is you know, again when you see like poll after poll on whatever issue it is, that the american people are largely on our side on these issues and the republicans -- with the buffet rule they are saying this doesn't solve the tax -- it doesn't solve everything but it's a start. >> i don't know how you can say that $46 billion isn't very much money.

>> it's rhetoric designed to scare. the whole of the economy -- or the economic message from mitt romney is, i'm going to scare to you to death if you keep obama your end is near but if you put me in, why everything will be just fine in 15 minutes. >> right. >> it is simply nonsense. obama has done everything he could against enormous resistance from the republicans in the senate. they have used the filibuster so many times it set an indoor and outdoor record. >> exactly. i love this oil and gas man took issue with the booking of enron. those of us out here in california, rep tent live jim mcdermott can attest to that.
7:39 am
i think that's a fair analogy, don't you? >> of course. and that's -- i mean, when -- when people like that and others attack the president for bringing -- pointing at speculators, they simply are not -- they are again, making no sense at all. the president's job is to protect us against speculators. that's what franklin delano roosevelt did by creating the security and exchange commission and all of these things and people think now he's let the economy run free and we'll be all free. no, you won't. the speculators will take you to the cleaners again and again. in the time i have been in congress, i have seen two financial crises.
