to economic history. the reality is since we've been living in the world of george bush tax cuts, job growth has slowed. we have suffered, we have had depression, we have had recession, job losses across this nation, this mantra that senator and you are repeating, cut the capital gains tax and we'll get huge job growth, simply is counterfactual, it is wrong. it is wrong, and it has not been proven. most fundamentally, even conservative columnists, i'm going to talk david brooks now, one of the most respective conservative columnists the nation has written saying basic fairness is being violated. fairness is at the heart of public policy, and the social fab rib. i don't get it -- fabric. i don't get it. >> no. so we're clear low taxes do not lead to economic growth? >> not the way they're doing it. what you want is, in fact, bull simpson -- a conservative document -- wanted to eliminate the capital gains -- >> you talk about bush and suggest wisconsin is seeking to lower taxes. in the name of economic -- it is bunk. if low taxes don't lead to economic growth, why don't you tax a 9

speechwriter for george w. bush, mr. frum. welcome to both of you. david, let me begin with you. was it standard practice or is this is your prying to you that the israeli government knew the precise content of the speech before it was delivered and was given a chance to push back? >> it is standard practice to share a speech with all important stakeholders. clearly the administration felt the israelis were an important stakeholder here. it is surprising to me they allowed it to go so long and i think they thought they were going to spring something on the israelis by showing them at the lass minute and got them -- to pushback. you put your finger in your -- opening statement on the key point about all of this, though. which is -- they -- was this the news the president wanted to make in his speech about the arab? 80% of the speech is about the arab, ball rain and syria. what's the headline that he got? about the '67 borders. is that what he wanted? find that hard to believe. if so, that's kind of -- that's a failure in and a disappointment for the administration. >> what david said is

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

, bob gates who is arguably the best secretary of defense we've had since george marshall has been arguing very strongly for caution, don't go in so i understand why they held back but, eliot, i mean the problem is that the president went on record early back -- 18 days ago, he first said in a phone call to angela merkel he's got to go. he's totally unacceptable. the secretary of state has come out and when you say that as president of the united states, you almost invite the rebels to keep fighting. because they think you're going to be there at their side and here then when you let them be crushed and they're about to be crushed. look, it's too late for a no-fly zone, then it's humiliation for the president and it's an embarrassment in many ways. >> it seems to me the president is losing credibility day by day, the opposition forces are being pushed back by gadhafi. the arab league said do a no-fly zone. france has recognized the opposition and is begging us to join us in a no-fly zone. what is the hesitancy. what is creating this that makes it impossible to move. >> well, first

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
