have to look back to barack obama in 2008. the barack obama in 2008 was telling george w. bush that he was fighting the wrong war. he was fighting the war in iraq and that in fact we had to put resources into the war in afghanistan. when you look at this in terms of barack obama himself, this is a real pivot for him. he did the counterinsurgency strategy and added 30,000 troops and he claims some degree of success. he would say great success. and now he's retrenching and adhering to his own pragmatic as we would call it obama doctrine. >> let's not lose sight of the financial cost of this war to american taxpayers. we're talking about hundreds of billions of dollars over the next few years. >> right. in the meantime back here there's talk of changes in medicare and changes in social security and just never looks good when you are telling people that you are going to get fewer government services or that their local government can't do as much as it used to do and meanwhile you're building townships and bridges and fighting a war in afghanistan that is hugely costly. that plays a par

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

george bush sr., you know. >> i think you might because when you poll it nationally, raising taxes on the upper income polls 59% are for it. all you need is 50% plus 1. even independent, it's 60%. so it's only republicans votes he's not going to get anyway that he's going to lose on that. i'm with david on this one. what he did there was easy when you state it at the level of generality with which he did. >> i thought where he was specific was he had a tough critique against paul ryan and the republicans. and he was very specific on that. clearly had their argument. i think we heard the drum rolls of 2012 in the speech clearly. >> i agree. i think sort of the attack on the republican party and the ryan proposal which was about two-thirds of the speech was really powerful, it was done in a lawyerly way, piece by piece, persuasive, then it was only at the end when he began to put the numbers in his own plan on the piece of paper that it began to get a little tenuous and a little ragged frankly from my perspective. so you're right, he's better as a counterpuncher right now than making his af

being part of the intellectual engine of the george bush foreign policy, and in the past few years you have been very crate cal of president obama's handling of foreign policy. and yet when i look at the two foreign policies, i see more continuity than change. so do you disagree with me about that? isn't president obama's foreign policy right now very close to president bush's? >> i think in some key respects it is. and i think that it reflects president obama coming around to accepting a number of positions that he had not only not accepted, but had pretty severely criticized when he was a senator and a presidential candidate. for example, the concept that the terrorism problem has to be dealt with as a war. and that's in some ways the most significant decision that president bush made in the hours after 9/11. and it was something that senator and candidate obama severely criticized. but now has come around to. >> if you would agree with me that president obama is following essentially the outlanes of president bush's foreign policy, then is question is it working? is it succeeding? l

george bush. they were not true emoters. so it's not a hazard getting to the nomination. perhaps when you're up against somebody as gifted as president obama is, then it becomes a problem. i think when you look at what mitt romney has to offer, what they are banging on is that this country has to be about dollars and cents and jobs a year from november and they are banking that his credentials as a businessman and as a certain extent as massachusetts governor will stand him in good stead with republican voters. >> candy, he went for what i would call the economic jug gu lar. he has taken the economic model from europe. it's hard to imagine anything more critical. you're european. >> horrible. >> absolutely. >> but he went through the litany of legitimate economic data, unemployment, foreclosures, everything that has the public deeply concerned but did he given as that will touch a nerve that is sufficient? >> listen, i'll tell you two of the biggest applause lines -- and when you say answers, there were not details. but he did talk about capping government spending at 20% of the econo

immigration reform. 44% of hispanics supported george w. bush in 2004. if the immigration reform debacle would haven't taken place in 2006, the republicans were poised to capture over 50% of the vote. >> reverend, what does that mean by immigration reform? so do republicans -- hispanics have a substantive problem with immigration reform, what do republicans have to do it win them over on that issue? >>. >> first of all, perception versus realty. the hispanic electorate is not in favor of amnesty. the hispanic electorate is in favor of the rule of law. and the application of the rule of law. in the matter of fact, surveys and research that have been taking place recently indicate that hispanic american electorate is completely in favor of stopping all illegal immigration. what the hispanic american electorate has a problem with is the rhetoric stemming out of certain segments, out of the republican party. the rhetoric that embraces threats that seem to be xenophobiaic. the party should address the hispanic american electorate and say we support legal immigration. we thank god for the hisp

. between bin laden and george bush, muslim lives in many countries have been turned into hell. i also think with the increasing uprisings in revolutions across the middle east and north africa, young people now, muslim and nonmuslim, have a new model for change that we canny abo br about change peacefully. we don't even need to consider this neo liftic violence. i think for a majority of muslims around the world, bin laden represented a terrible distortion of our religion and many people, many, many more than those you saw in the images from pakistan, are relieved he's dead. there's a big difference between celebrating and relief. most of us -- i have to add every single major islamic group in north americas that released a statement saying we are relieved bin laden is dead, good riddance, essentially. >> do you agree not only with that -- the notion that the ideology is dead but that what we are seeing in north africa, the middle east, the revolutions that have swept that reason are they an affirmative response to bin laden, saying no, we believe in freedom, tolerance, something
