and former special assistant to president george bush, who's also not in charge of it. thanks to both of you for coming here. let me start with you, dylan. what -- who is in charge of the gop these days? >> well, the speaker's very much in charge of that caucus. and you know, i think they had a contentious meeting of the caucus this afternoon, but by all accounts the ball's moving in the right direction. and i tend to be an optimist, but i feel like the speaker will get his votes and a lot of those tea party activists will be a part of that vote and that bill will move out of the house tomorrow at some point in my opinion. >> i think if you just look at the math you find yourself saying, steve, that the reason the tea party is so powerful is because if they stick together, even 2/3 of them, they can sort of strangle things there. >> it would take even less than that. because the democrats have made it clear that they're going to provide zero votes when this thing comes to the house tomorrow for the john boehner plan on the debt ceiling. you'll get zero votes from democrats. which mean

at this time way did you for george w. bush, bill clinton and the like. if you really care about the presidency, there is a potential shift in power. if the future congress raises the debt ceiling, that puts more power in the congress. >> and some have suggested maybe we shouldn't have to have these votes to raise the debt ceiling. maybe there ought to be another process where you don't have to take it to congress. that's exactly why -- >> a lot of republicans like it. because it will result in some reduction in the size of government. which is what they got elected to do. >> exactly. they want to do it and they want this add leverage. >> don't go away. this is an historic night in washington, d.c. the president of the united states will be speaking from the east room of the white house followed by the speaker of the house, john boehner. only one week to go before the nation's debt ceiling is reached. we'll have continuing coverage leading up to the president's speech. among others, we'll be joining by two united states senators who are right in the middle of all of these negotiation

dealing with him. there's a part of george tenant's book where he talks about making please an trees with the likes of moussa koussa who we know masterminded the bombing of pan am 1 0103. >> we have to hold our nose and get on with international diplomacy. frank dugan, thank you very much for joining us. we hope the best for the families. >> thank you. >>> it is amazing, those are the hard choices that have to be made. you shouldn't forget it was under president bush that relations with gadhafi were normalized. and that was done because

in there with the barbara streisands and the big time george soros and democrats out there supporting president obama. >> just to clarify, i don't think the president was suggesting different marginal rates for democrats and republicans. i mean, i know that isn't what you were suggesting. i just want to make our viewers clear on that point. >> you never know in this town. i agree with you. >> these days it could come out of washington. we're talking about people whose net income income is $250,000. pick a different threshold, $500,000. you would agree somebody making that much money could afford to pay more to help out in this case, right? >> i can -- i do want to point out, though, on income taxes, people who make $410,000 a year or more actually pay 40% of the income taxes right now. the idea that the rich are somehow skating, that's not reflected in the income tax code. one of the things i want to point out is if he puts his proposal on the table, i think it does deserve a vote up or down. but right now he really has not done that. >> nobody's suggesting people are skating even tho

still win? >> it could be very hard. you've got to remember what happened to george h.w. bush when he was running for re-election back in '92. and he accepted tax increases over the anger of the base, and he lost some of that base, some of the base stayed home and he lost to bill clinton. he lost the election over it. it so could be quite possible that if the democratic got really angry, it's too late to put up a candidate against obama in the primaries, but they could get them to stay home. i think the president is counting on, if you cut it enough, the financial markets will be so happy, the economy will start getting some momentum, we'll get the unemployment rate down, and overall things will be better. and by the way, he think it's the right thing to do, to get these big cuts, it is the right thing to do for the country. but the question was not just getting the cuts, but what's the balance within the deal. >> and i must say, and we're about out of time here, but it seems like one of the things i'm struck by that in a practical sense, what's happening is people are simply running
