if the republicans gain power and what george w. bush represented. so the president is trying to draw a clear contrast. it may be too little, too late. but it's one of the few tools he has left at this point in the game. >> boehner is what, one of 12 kids? he is an honorable guy? >> he -- >> kennedy was a big pal of boehner. >> he has policies that got us into the ditch and he doesn't have any new ideas and he smokes like a chimney and spends time in the tanning bed. >> listen. >> he lives on the edge of a golf course. >> exactly. the reason now obama is turning his gunfire on to john boehner is that for years he has been demonizing president bush. that is no longer working. that doesn't have traction with the american people anymore. nobody knows john boehner, frankly nobody cares, even most republicans don't care about john boehner. interestingly, he could be speaker of the house if the republicans gain control, but as of now, look, john boehner this is a wash. the point is that he has been targeting -- obama has been targeting president bush for a long time. what is ironic and

medicare issue. because i was saying the same thing, when george w. bush suggested changing social security, it just offered people the option of going to the stock market, and it wouldn't affect anybody who was over the age of 55, well, it turned out the more that bush tried to sell it around the country, the more people hated it. and it was the seniors. and we don't want you touching social security or medicare. and i think that is very dangerous, because a lot of people out there who are still deciding, and the undecided, are down to about 5% now, they're going to hear paul ryan, and they're going to hear right away he wants to tamper with medicare. >> and ryan is the architect of -- >> let eleanor in here. >> ryan is the architect of the bush social security privatization scheme. he also wants to eliminate all taxes on capital gains. wants to increase the defense spending. and this is all going to accomplished with these unspecified cuts. where are those cuts going to come from? >> i think he is muting some of those -- >> john, this is not a buddy movie. i'm glad that mitt romn

-- 700 billion. and it was a george bush plan. he put the first half out. barack obama put the second half our out. then the auto bailout. it was a george bush program, continued by barack obama. if he had not continued those problems, we would still be in the toilet today. >> the auto industry is stronger than it ever has. >> yes, it is.

republican and democratic presidents. the child care tax credit was doubled under george w. bush. this is part of the reason a lot of people do not pay federal income taxes. before they pay a lot of other taxes. and they feel stressed, and they don't see that mitt romney is someone who is on their side. it is devastating to him politically. >> mark? >> well, i do think it is hugely damaging to him politically. i have to say, i don't believe this is the way all wealthy people talk. i've been to many -- >> i hope not. >> i was a waiter at these dinners and i listened to those conversations. [ laughter ] >> and i never heard them talk that way. and when they tipped me, they didn't say you deserve this, they basically said i didn't deserve it because i wasn't serving. i do think there is a blind spot in romney that is really spon issuing in the sense that there is something about him that is not coming through. i don't know if it will before the campaign is over. but if it doesn't, he will be in real trouble. it is immense political damage. and the fact that it came out this way, the fact tha

roll back this terrorist threat. >> in 2002, then-president george w. bush also created an international coalition. it consists of 68 countries, of which 20 committed more than 16,000 combat troops. senior obama administration officials said that members of the coalition that will assist in fighting isis include allies from around the globe, including the arab world, notably saudi arabia, the united arab emirates and jordan, and europe. australia is already engaged in humanitarian air drops inside iraq. and canada has put advisors on the ground. in his speech, president obama again declared that the united states will not commit ground forces to the destruction of isis, but instead hopes that muslim allies and the iraqis will provide the boots on the ground, military strategists say are essential to defeating the islamic state. >>> question, is this the right formula to defeat the islamic state, pat buchanan? >> john, the president's strategy is non-credible. it's an open-end, no-win war. in syria, you'll need boots on the ground to take down isis. the turks are saying we'r

present time, remember what george bush said, pope john paul ii came out against the iraq war and george bush said either you are with us or you are with the terrorists. i don't know the americans respond very much to the pope's appeal. >> what do you say? >> i think the pope is a moral leader. this is the tone and what the substance is that he is speaking of. political leaders have to consider the interests of their own country, which are not necessarily consistent with a moral approach. i'm not saying they aren't affected by it. this is the difference between somebody like the pope and presidents or leaders of countries. and that's inevitable, been true forever. and it's going to continue to be true. i think actually in truth, the moral issues are much more relevant today, because of the media frankly than they used to be. but it's still not decisive. >> the pope wants reconciliation. do you think he can get it? >> well, first of all, john, i think it's very appealing and interesting to younger citizens of the world to see the pope speaking very seriously about geo political iss
