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

moment. i can remember used to have discussions with president clinton and his team and also with george bush and his team what i think elected politicians around the world now see is a real problem of a many conation of a driving culture of negativity, which is most dominant, i think, in our newspapers and if you like, the frenzy driven reality of news reporting 24-7 on a proliferation of channels and online revolution and so forth is making it more difficult to govern. i think the media has to accept some responsibility, not just for getting viewers, not just for selling papers but for the role it plays within that. i hope we can have a sensible debate about that where the politicians have said they have to change their ways but the journalists accept they have to change, too. >> thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you. >>> this may all sound like something that's happening over there. you can bet your house we're getting more of it coming here to debate we will stay with on this show. coming up, washington as we said at the top is playing hot potato with the debt ceiling. you've g

decade ago to the republican reaction and george bush's reaction to 9/11. we have to go out and transform this world. the discovery that the world was more hostile than we thought. the answer was transform it. what does that mean? regime change. democracy promotion. all of this aggressive stuff. now, obviously it failed in some fundamental ways and next question is what's the reaction to that. i think in obama we have a certain kind of idealism. he believes we're responsible to do something in libya and that america can reshape the world. you listen to candidates at the republican debate the other night and you had the feeling they think the world is hostile. the world is not a good place beyond america's borders and so the point is let's not get ourselves caught up and not go to libya and get out of places. it's a purely negative view of the world. >> the word isolationism springs to mind. that's got political baggage but they are pulling back in such a comprehensive way and what's gone is infusion of moral values that george bush brought to foreign policy. we had to bring free

the popular movement that george w. bush articulated. that makes sense. i'll give you the last couple seconds. you obviously thing i'm wrong. tell me why. >> i think bush is wrong. clinton was wrong. this guy is wrong. it's just not going to happen in the way you think it's going to happen, sir. even if it did, if we had democracy from more taina to jordan, those democracies would have to reflect popular opinion. what you would have is the greatest anti-israeli movement than you've seen in your life. israel is hated more than anything in the islamic world. >> michael, time runs short, you're going in a different direction about is israel. a whole different set of issues. i look forward to having that conversation with you in a couple days. michael, thanks for joining us, we will have that conversation down the road. >>> up next, with dominique strauss-kahn in jail, what's the future of the organization he ran and the impact on french politics? i'll ask fareed zakaria to dissect the fallout when we come back. ...and? it helped balance her colon. oh, now that's the best part. i love you

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

believing in something greater than yourself. george washington said religion and reality are not dispensable. i am not talking about social conservatism. as a former, well i still ama social conservative in many ways, but a former one on campus and college, you go to war, learn things and see things and realize there is other things in my mind that are a more important priority. i am not talking about pro-life issues. i think that is a fight conservatives should continue to fight and win every day of the week. but i think we obsess over things like same-sex marriages and it inhibits us to talk about the real challenges facing parents and kids in the culture. he talks about after focusing on yourself looking outward. the left of course is the party of equal outcome. if we are not striving to be the party of equal opportunity we will miss the mark. i think it is fair to say republicans and conservatives have in many ways missed the marx. talking about marginal tax rates and seeing the shift in the economy we have to be clear about attacking that and approaching that. that means not
