george w bush's legacy and he talked a lot about restoring america's standing in the world. obama came into office determined to extricate united states from what he saw as george w bush's wars of choice in the mideast. how is it different between what obama wanted to do in terms of his precedence legacy, his predecessors and what trump is doing now >> i think the difference is that president obama didn't come in determined actually to tear down specific programs that president bush had put in place, he came intending to move in a direction. even then he didn't move as radically as i think he had advertised in the campaign. he kept the drone strikes, he expanded them. kept a lot of the counter terrorism policies surveillance, military commissions, guantanamo remained open even though he talked about wanting to close it. and on foreign policy there was a little bit more of a continuation in some ways different courses but not a radical change >> i know it's pretty impossible in way to have a conversation about barack obama these days that isn't a conversation about donald trump. le

word "untruth. it conveys intent just as she said. so i don't believe that george w. bush was lying when he said there were weapons of mass destruction in iraq, and i don't believe barack obama was lying when he said if you like your health insurance plan you can keep it. i think they were both careless and i think they were both proven false. i think here what we have is a case where the current president speaks so many untruths just again and again, about the murder rate, his own electoral margin, the crowds during inauguration day, j.f.k.'s assassination, 9/11, president obama's birth, president obama's wiretapping, and i could go on with 20 more. he speaks so many untruths that i think we have to conclude that he doesn't feel bounded by truth. so while it is hard, probably impossible, to know on any individual case whether he knows the truth and is lying or whether he believes something that is false and is stating it. i think we can comfortably say he isn't concerned with truth. he is happy to lie, and that's what i find so alarming about this situation. >> rose: it is not only
