" for seven years. i went from covering -- i started covering prince george's county. once again, politics and government. the interesting thing about prince george's county and this whole region is that everything was always changing. everything was on the verge of changing. the county was about 50-50 black-white, which means power was shifting hands. it meant that people were taking jobs for the first time. that means there was conflict. conflict is always good for the news business. it is what i call my, when chickens fly theory of journalism. if a chicken walks across the street, that is what expected. that is not news. if a chicken suddenly flies, that is news because it is unusual. that is my thought about what was happening in the prince george's county schools. and in the prince george's county government. i covered montgomery county. i covered the district. i covered, i guess it was the first administration of marion barry, which was an interesting time. i did that for my first several years and then i went to the national staff and covered my first presidential campaign

democratic party that george clooney hosted for hillary clinton. and just to get a good seat at the fund-raiser, you had to contribute $300,000. it is worth asking, why could anybody contribute $300,000, if the maximum contribution in a primary is $2,700. that's because the supreme court said well you can string it together, pile these committees, write one check and it is all fine. so stuff is really honored in the breach. that's kind of like, i think, sort of the lay of the land of some of the key elements of this. but some of the consequences make aren't sufficiently recognized. there is two that are dominant. obvious but maybe less obvious than first appears. the first one is that all this money that's coming in, it is provided by an incredibly small number of individuals and corporations. make sense to think about them together as a corporate class, a really small number. so i would say that occupy wall street, which did a great service to the country, kind of got it wrong, write. all the discussion about the 1%, right, the other 99, the 1%, it doesn't explain what's going on in cam

great depression. not the kind of economy i would like to see. all right? george bush, we go from 5% unemployment to 10% unemployment. we lose millions of jobs. under obama, back down to 4.9%. in colorado, we're at 3.5%. i want to thank you and i want to thank the administration for getting this economy back on track. can we do better? you bet. how would you suggest that we do better, how this economy can get moving so that the folks here can see some real growth in wages, which i think are beginning to appear, but what would you suggest? >> so our objective in terms of what we can do is to try to make sure that the picture that you have put up here shows continuing improvement in the labor market. i agree with you, i would say the signs of wage growth increasing, they are tentative at this point. there is some hopeful signs. but i think if the labor market continues to progress, we are very hopeful we will see faster progress on wages. and we will try to keep that progress going. that's our objective. inflation is running under our 2% objective. i expect that will move up over time

that george w. bush is the reason is we had 9/11, even though he'd only been there for two months when that occurred. these are not orthodox positions in the republican party and for someone who espouse those positions and yet still maintain a pretty good sizable portion of the early polling suggest we're flirting right now. we're not serious yet and once we get serious and sober after the summer of trump you'll then begin to see remembers go that direction away from him towards somebody else. >> at the end of the day, he is running in the republican primary, but is there a silver lining to what you all have described as flirting with trump? does it put more pressure, kenneth, on both sides to step up and defend hispanic voters and try to energize them? is this something that will resonate? will the candidate at the end cut through theize in and wi ii noise and does it benefit voters? >> it provides an alternative for people like jeb bush and marco rubio and even senator cruz to be that other. i think senator cruz is banking on the fact that trump will implode and the people that are t

president reagan, george h.w. bush, william clinton and george w. bush both utilized sanctions and economic incentives to gain cooperation from iran. using economic leverage has never precluded the intensification of sanctions or the use of military force or other measures against iranian actors or their proxies in the region. let me close by speaking to the issue of the unjust attention of americans and other dual nationals in iran. there have been a number of critics of the administration who have warned that the linkage that appeared to be present might induce iran to seize more americans and increase risk to americans. i appreciate the rationale of imputing a kind of rational calculus to iran's treatment of its own citizens. this reflects a naive understanding of the drivers of iranian politics. i see no evidence that their long-standing patterns and exploitations of individuals are subject to the logic of financial incentives. there is no attempted extortion here. in these arrests, i think that there is no method to the madness other than the obnoxious realities of authoritari

fundamentally wrong. i'll say this, i had plenty of disagreements with president george w. bush on a spectrum of issues. but i still marvel at the fact that after all we went through on 9/11 he would say to america, quote, all americans must recognize that the face of terror is not the true face of islam. islam is a faith that brings comfort to a billion people around the world. it's a faith that has made brothers and sisters of every race, it's a faith based upon love, not hate. thank you, president george w. bush for reminding us at that terrible moment in history who the real enemies were. they weren't people of islamic faith. they were those who had violent extreme views and ready to kill to execute that, like the ku klux klan and hate mongers. that president at that moment in history got it right and we've got to get it right today. because we're being called on like many generations have in the past to respond to a legitimate fear of terrorism in a way consistent with our american values. and when we lapse into this notion that we're going to condemn the faith, i think we've go
