george zimmerman's injuries from the chief medical examiner. court is now in a short recess, so let's get right to msnbc's craig melvin, who is at the courthouse in sanford. craig, what's going on right now? >> reporter: you know, what we just saw there was very interesting because this was perhaps, arguably, the first state witness that really sort of held her own with mark o'mara on cross-examination. we should note this is not the same medical examiner, obviously, that performed the autopsy on trayvon martin's body. we got a few very important morsels, if you will, from valerie rao. the first of which right out of the gate she testified that george zimmerman's injuries were, in her words, insignificant. she used that adjective several times to talk about the injuries that he sustained. she also talked a little bit about the injuries not being a result of great force as well. we saw mark o'mara on cross-examination try and discredit her by basically saying that she was appointed by angela cory and as a result implying that her testimony might be slanted. we just heard on redirect th

afternoon in sanford, florida, with the george zimmerman trial. testimony has just wrapped up from a forensic pathologist who, as you may have heard, specializes in analysis of bullets and firearms. he testified that the concentration of powder marks around trayvon martin's gunshot wound backs up the zimer man story that martin was on top of him, on some of zimmerman, during their struggle that fateful day. the next witness is taking the stand now. let's turn to lisa bloom. i think we have a minute here, lisa. what's your latest update? >> well, you're right. he was very good on direct examination, saying that george zimmerman's story was consistent, and that's the buzz word, consistent with the medical evidence. it's also consistent with some other possibilities. . that came out on cross-examination. for example, if trayvon martin was pulling away and george zimmerman was holding his shirt at the time, the medical and scientific evidence would be consistent with that scenario. he also said that george zimmerman could have hit trayvon martin and not have any bruising on him. absence

in the trial of george zimmerman, sanford police officer timothy smith was the first officer on the scene. lisa, have you seen anything today that jumped out at you, any surprises, any forward movement for either side? >> well, let me summarize what all of the witnesses have been saying today with the three cs. george zimmerman after the shooting was coherent, compliant, and calm. that helps the prosecution in one sense. it helps the defense in another sense. it helps the defense because he's compliant. when law enforcement came, he immediately identified himself as the shooter, put up his hands, identified he had a firearm, and answered all of their questions. but he was also very, very calm. according to one witness kind of strangely so. he didn't seem to be in shock and didn't look back at the body of trayvon martin even though he had just shot him. >> we just saw the police officer testifying to whether or not there was blood in the car when he was taken to the station house. so have we established how injured george zimmerman may or may not have been and what that goes to it th

that his brother was president. so they obviously remember george w. bush. he also consistently gets questions on immigration and common core and which are the two issues potentially an issue with the republican base. so i think the big question is here is going to be talking about finances and money meaning that the bush campaign will have a chance to sell their version of their candidate on the air waves and i think at this point it's unpredictable how that goes -- that advertising ultimately will impact how voters feel about bush. right now, the main question for him is as you look at this early state map, where can he win? iowa? maybe, probably not. new hampshire seems to be the most important piece. south carolina usually votes for southerners. florida, of course depends on whether or not he faces off with marco rubio. >> all right. casey hunt in miami, thank you for that report. we'll take you back there to miami-dade college shortly. now to the other side of the aisle, and another big announcement hillary clinton made her presidential bid official this weekend on new york's ro

issues it would hurt him tremendously. the model i think that they are looking at is the george bush model. george bush won when he was governing running for re-election, two years before he ran for presidency, he ran up the score and touted his accomplishments and in 2000 ran as a nags nal conservative and pushed back against what was the perception around the extreme republican wing in congress. people don't remember that about george bush now because we think of him as a conservative. but he tried to run not quite as a moderate but compassionate conservative. there's a path for chris christie to try to do the same thing. he's clearly setting up that narrative now in contrast to what's happening in virginia, that he's the kind of republican to appeal to democrats and independents. >> i don't know what you're talking about. i think of george w. bush as a huge moderate, big spanking -- compassionate -- >> look how he ran in 2000. he did do a lot of that footwork. >> the other test we'll know when we wake up, did running against obama care work well enough in virginia or not? the repu

would argue in 1968, 44 years ago, george romney had an easier path to the presidency through his mormonism than mitt romney faces. the republican party today versus 1968, about half is evangelical christians and a lot have very hostile views towards mormonism. they believe it's inxatable with their view of what christianity is. a long of evangelical christians have that view, and we have the spectacle in the republican primaries of mitt romney even when he was clear he was the nominee, even when his opposition was reduced to rick santorum, he's losing among evangelical christians in mississippi, alabama, southern states or even northern states with significant populations. they were resisting him even past the point. it's still an issue, because look at the clip at the beginning. who is that behind him on the stage? pat robertson. you're trotting out pat robertson in september in a general election? you're still worried about the evangelical christian base, and you want to be seen with him. he has a huge liability with anybody but the evangelical christians as well. >> mike hucka

up. i can't look back at the modern era except for george mcgovern getting forced out of primetime -- i can't think of one of these things getting seriously screwed up. i don't think the story coming out of romney's speech is that swing voters are going to get scared off by the foreign policy -- >> the story is that it was a great speech. >> it was a speech that proves these things can't be mucked up. but what stood out to me was he did not aspire in this speech to be anything more than generic. the calculation here was, we're going to put a little foreign policy in, a little bit of the personal in, we're going to tick off all the basic criticisms of obama we've been making for four years. there was talk about a week ago that the romney campaign was re-evaluating its strategy and saying, we can't just rely on the bad economy, we have to show more. that speech he delivered last night was the speech of a guy who thinks he can rely on the economy and voters are looking for confident enough in the alternative. >> i think you're exactly right. and there's something to that strategy. and

begged for george w. bush's impeachment in some cases has been silent on this issue but i think the one that's most important is the issue of policy implication because as hawkish as you might be, right, or i might be, you can sort of say, well, forget the human taryn issues, war is war. you could say forget the legal issues. i can justify a lot of things in the time of war and willing to overlook the highway pk sy. the one to care about is plitd call implementation of this. if you have a program that's completely unaccountable, a program whose motto is what drone program, then it makes it really hard when bad actors like iran, like china, perhaps, get their hands on this technology and start to use it irresponsibly and hard for we the united states to go to nato or the u.n. or an international court or allies and say, hell us sanction this group for their illegal drone strikes when our program is completely unaccountable so getting the rules of engagement down codified on paper out in the open is really helpful for us to continue using drones. and i think whatever side of the issue

think last week they did a fundraiser over george h.w. bush's socks. i think they should stick to that. >> great socks. >> certainly members have tried to kind of clamp down that practice, but i think in certain districts, it's probably still going on. >> yeah, i have my theory as well. that is i'm more concerned about the money here. to me, it is that -- i guess it's less of a theory and more of a complaint -- of how much the political bandwidth it has consumed. this is exactly why we are seeing nothing getting done in washington, d.c. that is the fault of the lawmakers but also media in large part are focusing on this so much. how is this thing going to end? is this thing ever going to end? >> oh, i don't think it's going to end until after 2016. you're going to have smoking gun after smoking gun. at the end, they're all going to be proven to have no fire at all in them, no bullets, no ammunition, so to speak. and you're going to have this cloud of suspicion, and that's really the point. to use the cloud of suspicion to pull down democratic candidates. >> yeah, and on the substantive

love at the federal reserve, literally. this is where she met her husband george, a celebrated economist in his own right. and their son robert is an economist as well. you can imagine the conversation around the dinner table might be a little different than ours. in fact, i've been told their idea of a great family vacation is the beach with a suitcase full of economic books. we thank george and robert for the support of janet as she begins this journey. i want to thank ben bernanke for the outstanding work he's done and he'll help keep our economy moving forward during the remainder of his tenure here. we'll have occasion for additional good-byes and i know that janet is very much counting on him to give some good advice to her as she moves into the chairman's spot. but with this, i would like to give janet a chance to say a few words.

an endorsement, but a compliment, you could definitely say that. barbara bush, daughter of george w. bush, told "people" magazine hillary clinton should run in 2016. she stopped short of saying she'd vote for her, but said clinton is, quote, unbelievably accomplished. at a dark time in politics when it seems the parties can't even agree on what they disagree about, that goes a long way. we need more barbara bushes in the beltway. it was a pleasant surprise to hear from her. she's not the first one in her family to speak positively about the clintons. george w. bush has come out and said she knows what it means to work under pressure. regardless of how you view the clintons or the bushes, both families know what public service is all about or what public service should be all about. you know, ultimately it should be about getting results. it should be about making people's lives better. unfortunately, we've lost sight of that in politics today. if you give someone a compliment or you serve someone on the opposite side of the political aisle, you're seen as weak. you're seen as someon

screamed about george w. bush in waco in the 2000s. now the republicans scream about barack obama. so much of this is cooked into that's how politics works. the other party complains about the other president and his vacation. from a practical standpoint when it comes to these issues, is there anything we can say he could have been doing or should have been in the white house that would have changed outcomes that would have mattered? is there anything real and substantive to this criticism? >> i think the juxtaposition of the optics basically of some of the tragedies going on, some of the conflagrations going on and what he was doing moments thereafter in terms of playing golf are not good for him. >> yeah, jonathan, the president's always going to have a target on his or hopefully some day her back. but it seems like the liberal media has been piling on. i'm sure you saw the column in "the new york times" this week. brutal piece. she got very personal. basically saying he has a boring presidency, his inability to bring people together or do anything. here are a few snippets. she writ

them off-guard or catch the opponent off-guard. the pitfalls are always the same. george bush 41 on stage with ross perot and bill clinton. our director said take a close up of george bush 41. he looked at his watch right then. that's a moment. al gore stepping in to george bush 43's space in the debate and giving a wonky commentary about job creation that i remember. there are a lot of pitfalls. it's mostly about demeanor than answers. one of the startling moments in the debate was when michael duke ki do you kak kiss was running. bernie shaw in an entirely question, you're opposed to the death penalty. if your wife was raped and murders, would be be opposed. >> why is that an appropriate question? it forces him to mix the personal with the political. i can be pro-killing a man that rapes my wife and against the death penalty. he made them smush those together, but you think that was appropriate? >> he didn't answer it correctly. he could have said i want want to track that man with my own hands and beat him into the inch of his life. i don't think a state should take the life of a

address by george w. and his dad last night. there's been little talk of the last republican president. i think jeb may have been right to stay this one out. i initially thought maybe too much was being made of the name. jeb is very different. he talks different, looks different. he's not from texas. but looking at the the polling on how toxic the bush economy and foreign policy still are, jeb i think could have easily won the nomination, but would have been very difficult for him to win this time around. >> i agree. my theory on this race has been that if obama win this is year, it will be the bush factor that saves him. it will be a sense that's very difficult to quantify, but a sense among voters that yeah, the economy's bad, our anxiety's high, but we understand and we're going to give him a certain benefit of the doubt. if you had a republican nominee this year whose name was bush, it would only exacerbate that. i look at jeb bush, there's almost an accident of history here. when you look way back. the year 2000, there was a certain inevitability there was going to be a bush resto

moved backwards. look, george w. bush -- >> they just voted to deport the dreamers. that's backwards. >> -- said, well, obama's been deporting -- >> i didn't ask you about obama. i asked you about the republicans. >> look, at some point the president is the president and he's got to take some leadership here. >> so he'll do an executive action at the end of the summer and take leadership. >> excuse me, guys. he has taken leadership. there was a bill. there was a bill that passed the sthath. a lot of that had to do with the president's leadership. and as far as when we controlled both chambers, we passed a dreamer's bill that republicans blocked in the senate. that's why the president took the executive action that he did. and the republicans are going backwards. i mean, "the wall street journal," which is no liberal publication, called the republicans who were leading this effort the deportation caucus. you know, you had david brooks, who called what happened over the end of last week the palinization of the party. so they're losing their allies on this. that's a big, big problem. >>

director for george w. bush and he said in you had told me ten years ago that a democratic president and a whole bunch over house democrats and senate democrats were ready to permanently extend the bush tax cuts for 98% of americans, he goes, i'd call that a victory, into the defeat. >> right. right. >> so i think that that's -- i go back to watching where the moneys are. there are a lot of special interest groups i think that have a -- the same way democrats had this problem in the '70s and '8 s when labor in many ways could trump what was in the best interest of a general election electorate. back then, much weaker position today, for instance, than they were back then, wasn't just labor but other special interest rocky mounta groups, worried about primaries that is what you are seeing with the republican side >> you mentioned dems there i think ate such sex they don't have much of a formal role in the negotiations and the discussions going on right now but we did he have nancy pelosi at her press conference putting out a reminder, hey, speaker boehner, you might end up needing our votes

that lost re-election, and that was george bush sr. in 1992. he looked at that race, and george bush sr. had a huge, gaping advantage on foreign policy. the berlin wall fell on his watch, soviet union crumbled apart and he prosecuted the first gulf war. there was a poll that said clinton versus bush, who would do a better job on foreign policy? it was 73-20 in bush's favor. that's the definition of a foreign policy mismatch. what clinton did in that pam contain, it was a lopsided victory was he seeded the foreign policy argument it to george xwush. he did not say i had issues with how it was issued. he said this guy is a good foreign policy president, but who is going to help nu your everyday lives, and that's what i want to talk to you about. i thought that would be the motto romney would follow. it's fascinating he decided to pick this fight when he didn't have to. >> they call it the kitchen sink approach. who would have guessed when the week began that the middle east would be all that anyone is talking about? up next, we've got another country threatening to catch us off guard,

unforeseen way this close to the election. domestic alally of of george w. bush in 2000 with the dui revolution. he was elected president in 2000. remember throughout october of 2000, bush was leading al gore to the polls. to the extent there was conversation about this, bush will win the popular vote and may have a problem with the electoral vote. the weekend before the election, al gore passed george w. bush and won the popular vote on election day. we know what happened in florida. maybe it affected it and didn't, but it was a huge thing that came out of the blue. >> he'd been open about his past doing that, and this was a new person we were getting. >> it also reinforced -- the big thing about bush was is he mature to be president. it reinforced it. think of 1992, iran-contra haunted george h.w. bush. he said he wasn't in the loop and there were lots of doubts. a week before the election he's trying to catch up to bill clinton. to the extent bush had any late momentum, it was zapped right there. think of reagan in 1984. this was a landslide election. there was a moment when ronal

address these next words directly to president george w. bush. in the weeks ahead let's be optimists, not just opponents. let's build unity in the american family, not angry division. no nominee for president should ever fail in the midst of a war to pay tribute to our troops overseas in his acceptance speech. mitt romney was talking about america. they are on the front lines every day defending america, and they deserve our thanks. >> i mean, i really thought his entire speech last night was fantastic. it had to have been for him so satisfying, like a triumphant comeback moment. here he is on stage making the case for the foreign policy that he believes in and advocated for. that was so his -- his character was so despicably undermined in the election as well. i thought this was a great moment for john kerry. >> it was a great speech. i had another favorite moment. let's play that clip. >> mr. romney, mr. romney, here's a little advice. before you debate barack obama on foreign policy, you better finish the debate with yourself. >> i mean, not only was that a great line, it is, but the p
