, and george h.w. bush. team obama can find some solace on this page in history -- ronald reagan beat walter mondale in a landslide re-election bid in 1984, even though the jobless rate was 7.2%. unemployment had been on the downswing and voters apparently trusted reagan to keep it going. and he did. four years later, unemployment was 5.3%. the obama administration hopes to tell a similar story, but remember, the unemployment rate was 7.8% when the president took office. 9.1% today. jobs, the economy and 2012, former white house insiders anita dunn and ed gillespie are next. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] thanks to advanced natural gas turbine technology from ge, the power that will help make our nation more energy independent is right here in america.

commerce secretary in the george w. bush administration and is now a member of mitt romney's hispanic tiering committee. and here with me in washington los angeles democratic mayor antonio villaraigosa. thank you both so much for joining us. let me start with a little something from thursday's debate which i think spoke a lot to the importance of the latino community in florida and elsewhere. the question was, hey, name me a couple of latino, a couple of hispanics that you might put in a position of power should you become president. here was the answer. >> senator marco rubio is a pretty impressive fwi. >> senator marco rubio, a terrific hispanic-american. >> i actually thought about marco rubio in a slightly more dignified and imprisz ef role than being in the cabinet. but that's another question. >> this, to me, speaks volumes about the hispanic community and republican attempts to reach out. but it's not sufficient just to throw marco rubio's name around. not even in florida. what do republicans need to do to reach out? >> well, i -- i think as someone was saying before, you know,

." and, bob, george washington ended the very first state of the union speech by telling the house and the senate he would derive great satisfaction from corporating with them. >> schieffer: (laughs) >> pelley: are we likely to see any of that tone tonight? >> schieffer: i think we'll see everybody having a big time. this is my favorite night of the year in washington, scott. you get them all here in one place at one time, kind of enjoying themselves. there is a sort of camaraderie about all of this. there will be a lot of cheers tonight. but tomorrow it will be back to business and, unfortunately, there's such a wide gap, such a wide difference between this white house and this congress. my guess is they're not going to get much done this year. it is an election year. you usually don't get much done in an election year and probably more so this year. >> pelley: bob, let's have a look at a scene you and i saw just a few minutes ago in the house chamber. gabrielle giffords, the congresswoman who was the target of an assassination attempt last year grievously wounded but now back. i

struggling at 1%. george pataki isn't even registering. we all look at polls. and people say oh they don't matter now. but they do matter in terms of fund-raising right? >> exactly. they do. and there's a clear top tier in iowa. so you've got scott walker who in two polls in a row has been out ahead and this poll even put him further out ahead, and then you've got another kind of middle tier that's still up at the top and then you've got that lower tier who just is not breaking through in iowa yet. so it's going to be harder for them. >> and it was so interesting talking to motorcycle riders yesterday. scott walker's from harley country. he showed up in his black leather. he's out there in his boots. but we were talking to a lot of the voters and asking whether he had a leg up with those voters and really people are still interest interested in all the different candidates. so i do think there's an opportunity for someone to break out and pass scott walker even though he's got that midwestern vibe. >> let's be honest we're at the speed dating phase of iowa caucuses when it comes to t

had great promise, given the two governors, vicente fox and george w. bush, who came to power together, to do something maybe earlier about the terrible border trouble wes no know are in mexico with the drug cartels, to do something about immigration reform. it was 2007 when we finally got to immigration reform. jon kyl, john mccain, teddy kennedy, george bush wanted a bill. they couldn't get it through. i think immigration reform is still one of our really great problems, and now the states are doing a patchwork of immigration laws. so that's probably the one i'd do over most quickly if i could. >> has there ever been a night or is there a night now -- i know i don't have to tell you how many americans have been kimmed in the iraq invasion, in the afghanistan effort, hundreds of billions of dollars, so many young men and women coming back either physically or mentally challenged. do you ever think, i don't know, was it worth it? did we get enough for what we gave? >> clearly one never gets over the lives that were lost and the lives that were changed. and i talk about that so
