bringing down violence may be changing the heart of the american people. romney did the interview from london where he will be in meetings with british leaders. it is not unusual for a candidate to make a trip like this, in order to set up relationships with our closest allies. president obama did do this in 2008. and the opening ceremonies open tomorrow night. and there is more u.s. memorabilia that is made in china. especially this lapel pen of mitt romney made in china. he is on record as saying the bricked used in the gateway in salt lake were cheaper than
than this. >>occupy! >>the award winning series "vanguard" only on current tv.

by saying that his father is somebody else other than who his father was. and to attack him because his father was a biggomist, rush limbaugh you should talk to your three former wives before you make that statement. >> i have to give you credit because that is hard to hit rush limbaugh below the belt but you just did.

have a link to it. >> themessis.com. >> it has been almost 24 years since ronald reagan left the white house. so why don't we take time to revisit the legacy of the giver. everyone thinks that ronald reagan presided over the biggest job booms. not quite. he created 7 million fewer jobs than george bush did. given how we hear about how awful the debt and deficit are for the future of our country, reagan must have really gone to work on those problems? no. reagan put the united states into debt for the first time since 1914. >> oh no. >> his bitch face just got
bitchier. >> cliff joins us now. good morning, cliff. >> thanks for having me. >> thank you for being had. i think he increased the deficit like 190% or something like that. >> that's true. >> there i go again. >> there he went again. >> well, you know, stephanie that's -- that's true, and the -- the facts on him are not good, and i'm not that interested in the argument that reagan, you know, would have been somewhat of a moderate today because as he is not as crazy as the guys are, the real point of reagan's record is the republicans have spent all of this time building him up basically so they could say he was so successful by reducing everyone's taxes and cutting regulations and this and that and this great man, and what they do is put proposals out that are so incredibly outrageous and restrictive and say look we're carrying on the
tradition of the great ronald reagan. ronald reagan doesn't so great. a lot of very bad things happening during that time and they use that as a justification for their very extreme policies. so it's important that progressives and democrats fight back a little because they are using reagan to justify some really bad stuff. >> cliff it seems to me in this election year when the economy is such an issue, the main one is that trickle down didn't work. we just read a quote yesterday about how this version of the republican party is just completely divorced by reality. >> that's right. david stockman basically said that they were not interested in deficit reduction or anything of the sort. what they basically want to do is kill anything connected to social programs anything connected to easing the -- the -- the strain
on -- on -- on poor people or whoever it may be in order to justify their tax cuts and the like. so, you know, it was a fraud, and listen i'm not sitting here and saying that ronald reagan did nothing that was good. i'm not interested in -- in sliming anyone. i'm not interested in playing games. everything that we have on our video is factual and backed up. you know, no one has said one word that is not true in there. >> the one thing, cliff that i do think, whether it is stockman or whoever raises it is he did raise taxes 11 times. he was more in touch with economic reality than these republicans. by comparison obama has raised the deficit only 45% as opposed to ronald reagan's 190. >> that's right. i think the point that reagan is not as crazy as these guys are is a good point.
but he was not the fdr of the 20th century is also a good point. we're trying to say things that democrats may be a little bit afraid to say or that obama and others don't think it is in their political interest to say. reagan is very popular, so somebody needs to put the record out there that there were major problems, lots of corruptions, deregulation that lead to the savings and loan crisis trying to get rid of the education department, and ketchup is a vegetable for kids. >> and trees cause pollution. >> yes. it's really an amazing record -- there were positive things too. but the overall record was very very mixed with some very negative things. the trickle-down thing where we
have gone to a country of the 1%. where we have gone to a situation where we have starved investment, we have been less sensitive about the environment,% he started all of those things. the financial mess in 2007 8, 9 was a direct result of the deregulation things he put in place in the '80s. >> let me make a point before jim gets it to i voted for ronald reagan. >> wow. >> i was a dopey college kid, but i think a lot of us still felt like he is a nice guy when back then -- when you have the prism of time, trickle-down didn't work, and a lot of republicans will tell you now, it's like that's the point, you know, in terms of -- you know -- first of all, there are some things, you are right, he didn't do everything wrong. look at the amnesty. he was more practical about
illegal immigration -- >> he absolutely was. like i said i think he gets credit for doing some things. but i think he set into place any republican spin machine in which they would pursue policies that basically benefits only the very wealthy and large corporations, and put them in a tone or context that got many middle americans to believe they were going to benefit as well. and you had people in mississippi thinking that the, quote, death tax would help them, because the reagan -- and the republicans in the 1980s began to convince middle americans that tax breaks and deregulation and all of those things could somewhat benefit them. and that continues to this day. one of the things i hope we can do is to break this idea of sort of combining what is good for the rich people, what is good for the taxes funding them --
>> yeah. and i think you are right the economics is the crux of it cliff. but you can't help but imagine reagan in the middle of the debate this year, and to say what he said about zero nukes. and some of the complementary things he said about unions. >> uh-huh. there is definitely selective memory on that. >> yeah. >> but the broader trends are big, though, and, you know, the -- the -- the hostility to the environment, his whole policy on aids or lack of policy on aids. he did a lot of very questionable stuff on the race thing. he played the race card a lot. there was a lot of things that happened there that set a tone that -- that would continue today that set policies that continued today, and you got to hold him responsible for that you can't -- and to the extent he is responsible for that and
this is why it is important we do this. this is important because the republicans use his words and his actions to justify their extreme things, and because when -- as i think i mentioned to you last time i spoke to you, no it's to the day whether you can't even challenge it. i saw gofer norquist on bill maher and he said let's talk about today. >> you have people saying this obama administration is so corrupt. and he had over a hundred of his administration officials investigated and prosecuted. >> yes, and we're almost four years into the obama administration. and can you even name a scandal? the gun thing in mexico? the fast and furious that's our scandal? >> yeah, started under george bush. >> let's go with meese, and watt, and oliver north.
we were talking about guys who were constantly in trouble. and it was a constant theme, and how many people that think reagan was this great man even know about that. >> don't forget the october surprise. >> yeah. but cliff i think again it is really important in this year of the 99% and 1% and romney being with their nominee that to me is the main thing. many, many economies that were on the right have said it didn't work, and that's the same thing they are selling this year aren't they? >> that's correct. and one of the things we did on our video -- bill clinton had a remarkably better economic record than ronald reagan. so the republicans however say that the way to economic, you know salvation is through reagan's combination of tax cuts, trickle-down economics and the like. no one -- do people know that
bill clinton's policy, which included deficit reduction. slightly higher tax rates for wealthy people investment in infrastructure, created a much better economic system. so you have to put out there the truth which is that reagan's policies were not as successful as clinton's policies were and the idea that if obama tries to do anything that's proactive, he was getting in the way of what actually worked which was ronald reagan's no taxes, no government policy. clinton had probably the best economic record of the 20th century. and he did not do that by starving the government and letting wealthy people get away with paying no taxes, by not regulating the environment, you have to balance this. >> yeah, cliff you make the point so well for instance in the most recent example is george w. bush. we know policies that did not work. >> right. >> one of the debates i'm sure
many people have had, what would my dad think or goldwater would think? i do know what goldwater said in the '80s it was very -- yeah, but very negative toward that version of the republican party, so it's hard to speculate but it is over the prism of time that we have seen that these economic policies haven't worked. so it's hard to say what reagan would say? >> i think you are right. that's an important point. there's no question about that. but remember -- and i don't want to debate this with you, but the more pervasive issue is the destructive policies they are pursuing based on the idea of how great he was. and that is more dangerous than countering the argument that he
was more moderate than he but. but on this point they are using him to justify the most extreme radical position. >> i think let's put this in the prism that all of the arguing going on right now, tax rates were higher under reagan right? >> they were higher under reagan, there's no question about that. listen -- the thing that is remarkable -- and i know its remarkable to all of you, how did we just go through seven or eight years, get the result we have, and then these guys all walk around acting like that works and reagan set the table for this great situation. >> very good point. >> and he is going to take away all of our guns. >> yeah. >> there's that. >> cliff great stuff. >> we have a link up -- >> on your facebook page and at

beauty or celebrity. she really, really knows the issues. >> i'm very flattered, and she is a real great person. >> wayne, we have been saying eric cantor being obviously in the republican leadership polling showing he is surprisingly vulnerable down there in virginia and people all around think you are ear tiffic candidate. >> thank you for that. and now we find out he has carved out a spouse and children's [ inaudible ] so that government people couldn't engage in insider trading without having some penalty. so what does he do? his wife who is a stock trader gets exempted from the stock act and he first claims it didn't happen, and finally when cnn proved that his office took that -- or made that
exemption -- who does he think he is? this allows for things that would put you and me in prison and it is allowed for him and his spouse. >> yeah and wayne, i mean it seems like it's just one story after another. it is more and more crystalizing, this election is about the 1% versus the 99%. eric cantor and his friends are pushing us towards this fiscal cliff again -- >> exactly. >> at having defend the top 1%. >> everyone should be united to cane a phrase, which basically
says all of this corporate money needs to be eliminated in the elections. and that means these corporations are going to continue to buy these elections. and there needs to be an amendment that says corporations are not natural persons. however, this is how far our country has gone in people being able to purchase elections. and i think it's totally wrong. >> wayne here is the president breaking down the fight. >> 98% of american families won't see their income taxes go up at all, but the other 2% of americans will have to pay a little more on taxes on anything they make over $250,000. >> so democrats post a year-long extension of tax cuts -- >> it's very logical, right. >> they killed a republican package that would have included the top 1% and here we go into
the eric cantor-lead house. >> here we go again, same thing. the american people need to kick these people out of office including eric cantor who want this income disparity. i was talking to a nobel recipient on the daily show last night, and he made it very clear we have the -- people have to realize before we do fall off of that cliff, and next time it will be a depression, next time it will be food lines. everybody knows the middle class is the backbone of this country. these are the people who create the demand who are the consumers who buy the houses, who fight the wars and now we have these veterans coming back -- we'll have these large bubble of veterans 12% of the
veterans are unemployed. and guess who is cutting off their money? eric cantor and the republicans. >> yeah. >> we're teetering on the edge of a double-dip recession and maybe even depression. there is no sacrifice that needs to be shared by people and that's totally wrong. >> this is in my mind where we need these people out is the counterpoint. the president says with the senate votes the house republicans now the only people left in washington holding hostage the middle class tax cuts for 98% of america. >> exactly. >> this time the politics are pretty clear, aren't they?
>> they ought to be. they appeal to the reptile brain, if you will something about the job creators, we don't want to increase taxes on job creators. from what i can tell is mitt romney is not creating in jobs. this is absurd. i think people need to do what is right. >> yeah, no absolutely. so wayne, you -- you -- i know have challenged eric cantor to a debate several times and he still has not agreed to a debate, has he? >> no he did meet me up in the seventh district, and he agreed to sit down and talk about some things. so i sent a letter to his staff proposing a stage. and he has never debated any
opponent every other person running for congress has agreed to a debate. and this time when he agreed to it, and of course he is going to back down, it was phone, i have it on tape and if he doesn't agree to it i'll put the tape out and let the media judge for himself. is this man, is he truthful? does he lie? he is a cow ward? >> wow. >> you know what -- it strikes me as the same kind of arrogance that the romney camp is showing. know, with we don't have to release any records. it is just arrogance, isn't it? >> i will release my taxes for the last four years since 2008 and i'll tell you that right now on my show i'll release my
taxes if eric cantor releases his. >> i would debate you, but it really messes up my weekend in [ inaudible ] house.
