like i have faith that barack obama, george bush, bill clinton are decent people that want to get it right. but they fail. when they fail, what we've got to do, as a leader, you step forward, take accountability, be transparent about your mistakes, and then you take action. you could argue that he has finally shown some contrition and shown some empathy. he's now talking about some transparency releasing his e-mails. now, i would like to see him actually waive the exemption that the governor has in michigan because otherwise there's no penalty for withholding e-mails. he's got to do that. then the proof is in the pudding. does flint really get the resources it needs from the state to replace the infrastructure and reparations for the decades of damage that's going to be imposed on especially these young people in flint who have been poisoned by every level of our government. >> do you think based on what you know the governor was complicit in the cover-up? >> i don't know. there's no doubt that his appointees, people who he put in the department of environmental quality, certainly we

great message for her to deliver. >> george w. bush is in this new ad for the superpac supporting jeb. saying, listen, we're like all families but we're different. he's definitely embracing his family and their 12 years in the white house. we know george w. bush will be on the trail in south carolina. listen, tim, if things don't go, you know, outstanding for you all in new hampshire, do you think you'd regret not bringing his big brother out on the trail before south carolina? >> jeb has to make the case he is the person with the backbone to take on isis and he is the person who is ready to be commander in chief. who better to vouch for him than his brother. jeb had to lay out his plans to do this. he did it at the reagan library before the paris attacks. i think what voters have seen in jeb and what we see in polling is this is somebody who's prepared to be commander in chief. that's why he's the endorsement of 12 medal of honor recipients and 40 generals and their endorsement of him is so important. to have his brother vouch for him as well is a nice boost right before the primary.

say that cost him the caucuses to george h.w. bush. of course he went on to win the presidency. how do iowans feel about this? could this hurt him among caucus-goers? >> you know that 1980 contest that was the first time i came to iowa. iowans were definitely unhappy with ragon not coming here not parting in the sole debate they had. it's different this time. donald trump has participated in several debates. and for another, the rule system doesn't seem to apply to him. i was at a rally donald trump was doing in marshaltown last night. i got no sense that people would hold it against him if he did not go to that debate tomorrow night. >> what a spectrm you have witnessed from the no-show of former president reagan to whatever is happening now. let me ask you about the democrats bernie sanders said today winning there all boils down to voter turnout. >> i think what the iowa campaign ends up being about is one word. and that is turnout. we are feeling really good about where we are. and if there is a large voter turn out -- i'm not saying we can do what barack obama did in 2008 -- i

infamous interview with george stephanopoulos when the governor was maybe not the most eloquent response when he was trying to defend the state's religious freedom law. wondering how he would do on a debate stage. is there anything about him that should give donald trump pause? >> so he did have this disastrous interview with george stephanopoulosus freedom law wad last year. mike pence has a lot of history appearing before the media. his role in congress was to represent the republican caucus on the networks and he was on network tv quite often. but, that stephanopoulos interview, he was not well prepared, he did not handle hard questions in a good way. he had a deer in the headlight look throughout that interview. so that could give donald trump some pause. indications here in the pence camp and among others who are republican insiders in the state is that all indications are mike pence will be the pick tomorrow, but we're talking about donald trump so caution is always in order. >> okay. that said, barry bennett is ao with us, former trump advisor. barry, knowing trump, knowi
