-span's q and a. dallas yesterday morning, the george w. bush president center officially opened to the public. the facility is on the campus of southern methodist university, includes the presidential library, museum and the bush institute. speaksfirst lady bush about the tour of the museum. >> what we really wanted, when we picked our architect, is a modern building that would fit in the collegiate georgian campus of southern methodist university. they have a very strict code. they want their buildings to look georgian. that is how the campus was designed, 100 years ago. one of the great things about having bob stern as the architect is, i knew he could make a forward-looking building. we wanted it to be modern, since george was president during the first decade of the new century, but also traditional, in the sense that it would fit with the georgian campus. that was embraced, with the sides of the building that come forward, the fountain in front. then, you can go straight into the museum at that point, into the big hall, and stand under the tower, the lantern, freedom hall. bob

quote . that's why i'm so glad this week, george miller and senator harkin introduced an increase in the minimum wage. when we increased it in 2007 in our first 100 hours, first time it was increased in 11 years. it's time for it to be increased again. they propose raising a fair minimum wage to $10.10, index future wages to inflation and put more money in the pockets of working families and it's important to note that more than 64% of minimum wage earners are women. this has a big impact on the financial security of our women.

things i'd like to echo from this morning session. one is that no one should think that george h. w. bush did not know the risks that he took. he knew exactly what risky took and he did it for several reasons. and he should be appreciated for that. it did put us on a path to getting our deficit in order. people have talked about the need for leadership. i think that the surprise of newt gingrich and his departure in the circumstance, where the administration had passed the majority of his party and the majority of the democrats get together and do this, everyone knows about this. it was clearly putting a personal agenda ahead of a governmental one at that point. my lesson is to be alert and keep your eyes open. third, i would say something you were expecting is not happening. what happened to us was the effect on the budget -- it was that the energy crisis spike. we have spent a lot of time working on energy taxes or the alternative of energy taxes. .. >> debt is higher now than since world war, and 90% of the debt was owned to the americans, and the reason that the pressures don't

tidewater region. you can see it is compared with 2004 when george w. bush won the state. you can see that president bush won more of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is used in virginia? guest: the computerized system

into the budget. george bush kept them out of the budget, was not paying for them, so things looked good. in the first few years of the obama administration, he created more jobs than george bush did in eight years. george bush's comment was the surpluses are for spending. he put us in massive debt, left it on obama. these people sit here and watch these idiots on tv say these things are not true. and then they go and push based on what they're hearing instead of looking into the fact of the matter. host: mr. forbes? guest: i did make mention that spending did increase dramatically under george bush. no matter how you account for the wars, domestic spending under president obama increased very substantially to the point that it is the highest it has been without a world war. that is why we're getting these massive deficits today. we have never had anything like this without a major war. you can rightly rap the knuckles of george bush, but that does not excuse president obama for what he has done. democrats and republicans share blame for what happened with the federal reserve, not c

there were tax changes that benefited the wealthy and george w. bush. i don't think this is a partisan problem. at the moment, the tea party people in the house are republicans, most of whom are millionaires -- people ought to know that -- the idea that these are ordinary folks like everybody else is wrong. that big surge in 2010, they are millionaires. areof congress millionaires, which also may explain why congress is not in tandem with the country as a whole. but i don't think this is fundamentally a partisan problem. it is at the moment because they are fighting against each other and cannot get anything done. but it is a much deeper problem. we have structural problems here, and both parties need to deal with them. i am amazed at what we have been talking about on programs like yours and washington in general since the election. i keep wondering whether or not occurredion of 2012 in 1912 or 1812, because the agenda of the election was helping the middle class, and we are not even close to it. as woman is right. this is where we need to get the and policymakers, whether in washingt

former secretary of state george schultz. in my estimation, senator hagel's views are consistent with secretary schultz, whom i think is one of the giants of our time. i think they have the same sort of outlook of trying to be pragmatic and take a look at things from multiple dimensions and informed judgments based on the conditions of the time. i think we have had many people of this particular persuasion. we have been fortunate in our country to have many leaders like senator hagel. i share your hope that we continue to have them going forward. host: future of afghanistan. how did hagel handle that? guest: he was in a bind. he handled it as well as he could have. that is one of the things he will face going forward, should he become secretary. i think we are aligning ourselves up for an administration push to bring troops out more quickly than probably the military leaders on the ground will want. so he will likely find himself in a situation where he has to represent those military views to the white house, along with his own judgment. that, i think, will be a tricky road for
