witness in the trial of george zimmerman. the young woman trayvon martin was speaking with on the phone moments before he was killed. joining us now, msnbc legal analyst lisa bloom. you've been listening to rachel testify. has she proven to be a credible witness so far, or has the admitted lie that she was not actually at the funeral and the reasons why she was not at the funeral undone her somewhat? >> she's certainly credible so far, but it's only been her direct examination. the proof will come in the cross-examination. she tells a story very different from george zimmerman's story. that's why she's on the stand. she says she's on the phone with trayvon martin in those final moments before his confrontation with george zimmerman. she said george zimmerman -- i'm sorry, that trayvon martin used a couple racial epithets in reference to george zimmerman. this is the first time i've ever heard that. she said trayvon martin said he was being followed, that he was concerned about it. she heard the phone dropping. she heard the sound of wet grass. the last thing she heard from trayvon

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 republicans have l

in a lot of ways is similar to the challenge that george w. bush that when he was running for re-election in 2004. bush had to deliver what i would call an unfinished business speech. the issue was national security, foreign policy, not the economy. there was a similarity in that there were a lot of concerns, growing concerns among voters that things were badly off track in iraq and the war on terror in general. bush had to give a nod to those concerns while at the same time saying, look, i've made progress, i've kept things from being worse. and to say, if you stay the course with me, things will get better. there's this line in his speech that jumps out at me. when he said in 2004 that historic goals are within our reach and greatness is in our future. you can look back and say that didn't pan out too well. it worked with the electorate in 2004. i think it's similar to what obama has to deliver tonight. >> nick, what do you make to that comparison? >> it's very accurate, i think, steve. i could be wrong. i was saying he should lay out a positive vision for the future. george b.

even president george w. bush agreed it was counterproductive to inject islam into a fight against terrorists who have no legitimate claim to religious values and by focusing, of course, on word choice conservatives have found a way to hammer the president on isis without offering a military alternative of their own. let's take the debate to ben goldberger, nation editor at "time" magazine. what do you make of this one is. >> well it's exactly what you just said, ari. many getting at the president for not using the word "islam," they've found a way to attack him for a lack of specificity in the policy. even though it's not particularly related to the word choice. >> let's deal with the point here, scholars saying, yes, this group is islamic, they behave the way that muhammad behaved decades or centuries ago so they are perpetuating the sort of muslim islamic past, right? scholars are saying that the president and his group insist no, we're not going to bring that word into it for serious reasons. let's listen to a little of the president on that. >> we must never accept the premise

george w. bush administration and the obama administration on enforcement both at the border and interior enforcement? >> well, we recently have seen the obama administration going -- having a large number of deportation, but the reality is the deportations have been -- have occurred for individuals who have committed other crimes in the united states. that initiative also played a big part during the bush administration. but i want to use an example of what is similar between the two administrations which i think also causes a tremendous problem and doesn't address the immigration issue. and that's the fact that the immigration service conducts or ice as it is called now conducts audits at employment locations and the employers are then notified that a large portion of their workforce might be using fraudulent identities. instead of arresting the individuals at the work sites, the companies are merely required to fire those individuals without taking the documents away from them, so they simply go on to the next employer willing to take them. that was done under the bush adminis

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 you're on tha

in roam for us. george, i want to dive right in because i know we have got a delay to worry about. most people know the role of the pope as the spiritual leader among catholics, but of course his other job is to proselytize and grow his flock. if you look around the landscape of global catholicism, you see that catholicism is very important in parts of europe, south america and south africa. should that be a consideration in choosing the next pope, finding someone who might be able to grow the flock in area where is catholicism is least represented? >> reporter: first of all the church is actually in very bad shape in a lot of western europe. and what we need, i think, what the church needs, is a pope who wherever he comes from is such a radically converted disciple of jesus crist is that he can invite people to consider the possibility of crist faith. we have seen that come from a pope from poland, who know one had ever heard of, we have seen it manifested in an elderly man whom people thought they knew and found out had a few surprises up his sleeve. so i don't think where a man

president's head and to reconcile the man that he was when he did run against george w. bush's and the excesses of the neo conservative policies and the constitutional law professor to reconcile that image of him with a commander in chief who has been very aggressive in going after terrorists in expanding the drone program. and i think that he let us inside his head on this more than we've ever seen. and it reflected a lot of deep both strategic and moral calculations. one of the lines that struck me the most is where he talked about civilian deaths and he said they will haunt us as long as we live as we're haunted by the civilian casualties that have occurred throughout conventional fighting in afghanistan and iraq. so very honest and raw about how difficult this has been for him. the other thing that should be go unnoticed is throughout our history and certainly since world war ii, the executive branch. the president and the executive branch have grabbed more and more power and that is democrats and republicans alike. and certainly, perhaps, the most aggressive grab of executive
