trayvon martin case. lawyers for george zimmerman are about to speak. >> reporter: hi, dylan. we're waiting to see what they're going to speak about. they just said they're going to give us a press release which in the old style means they'll hand us a piece of paper, but they may stactually say something on camera. both representing zimmerman, they're not defense attorneys, because as far as we know, george zimmerman is not arrested and is not defending anything except for how he's defending his reputation. we're waiting to hear what it is they're going to announce. of course, yesterday the special prosecutor in this case announced that she was not going to use a grand jury to present her case, which means that, especially since she took time out of her day to talk with some of the protestors on the phone that she may have concluded much of what she is working towards in terms of gathering evidence and maybe even reaching a decision, she's had it along with agents for 19 days. of course, the shooting of 17-year-old trayvon martin happened here in sanford 46 days ago. so we're waiti

of information, fueled by george zimmerman and george zimmerman's brother rob whose interview allowed him to tell any fictional story he wanted. >> the last thing he remembered doing was moving his head from the concrete to the grass so if he was banged one more time he wouldn't be wearing diapers the rest of his life and being spoon-fed by his brother and there would have been george dead. >> does that in that image look like a man beaten just within inches of his life just 30 minutes prior? add to that the fact that zimmerman's attorney says george and rob haven't spoken in years. so why would he even be on tv talking about george? does that sound like responsible journalism or does that sound like allowing dangerous information to cloud the collective mind at a tense moment in american history? there is a cynical fringe in america right now dying to see zimmerman proved right, and that is eating up this misinformation and being ignorant of the deep historical pain being brought to the surface by this moment. there is also the new black panther party encouraging vigilantism,

handed that bank and trade left soaring revenue to george w. bush. think of it like george w. bush suddenly found himself with a high-paying job. somebody who gave him all this money. goes out, buys three houses, seven cars, and two helicopters, simply because he's got a high-paying jobs. instead of homes, cars and really cool choppers, bush took that trade bank boom, that credit boom in our economy in 2000 and financed two war, medicare part d to the get re-elected in '04 and tax cuts for the rich, without paying for any of them. the good thing for george bush was he still had the clinton funny money machine coming in to fund the projects. this is a look at george ding so clinton creates the revenue. george bush spends it. everything's more or less okay, but then the crash of 2008 hits. watch your head. the clinton enabled funny money time bomb explodes. a massive home drops. that was created under the spending under george bush. revenue collapses. it's as if the nation lost its million dollar job but is still paying the bills for three house, seven cars and two helicopters. enter

in the house? >> i can see why people become disenchanted when george bush jr. ran in 2000, i liked what he was saying, but immediately afterwards he changed that policy. then obama was elected more or less as the peace kaercht. most people held out saying he will change the direction of the george w. bush administration, but nothing changes. that's why the american people get so tired of it all. i think it won't happen under we're routed for economic reasons, like the soviets were routed. right now even with a fancy speech tonight, i don't think we'll say hey, we're leaving. i think we're there for a long time to come. i think we're there as long as the people will take our dollars. we'll keep spending, a very, very dangerous situation. >> would you ultimately argue that the narrative you just described, we're talking about republican and democratic leadership in terms of their rhetoric, that the inable to respond to the people is a direct reflection of the military industrial complex's control of our military resource and foreign policy? >> i think so. i think the control is by th

where we've always been, where george bush expected republicans to be, and that is give us a chance to debate deficits and budgets together and not tied into this whole discussion of paying our bills. if we do that, we can move forward and look at the job deficits. >> brilliantly executed strategy on the part of certain political factions, whether it's the republican party or parts of the republican party. you have to admire the political leverage that they have applied by manipulating this debt ceiling debate, at the same time it's like admire a courageous leader who wants to lead everybody off a cl[ff to shoot themselves. now they have essentially gotten what they kept saying they wanted, which was only cuts to very important programs. unfortunately from my perspective, it looks like the president is willing to go there, simply to avoid having the country thrown into chaos, but even then the republicans didn't seem to understand how to claim that victory. today the republicans can't get republican votes for a republican bill in the house of representatives, so john boehner takes to l

politicians' egos. the second reason is you would like me to bring you change, not george bush's strategy of escalations and insurgents. we're still leaving iraq on bush's schedule. could we put a little pep in our step? perhaps the most reason is we have to spend our money here at home on behalf of the american people instead of giving it to billionaire defense contractors. we just spent over a trillion dollars on the two wars. imagine how much we could have helped the economy if we spent that money here, if we poured a trillion dollars into alternative energy sources. by this time we night not need their damn oil. the spending priorities in the country are upside down, and there's a reason for that. it's because people who give us politicians money get rich off of those spending priorities. but you elected me for change. we're going to stop shoveling your money to defense contractors, banks on wall streets and other every special interest that buys your politicians. we're going to spend it on you. we will protect your social security. we will provide you with new jobs. we will

this? we've seen with obama where all the torture from george bush, we're not going to look into that. all the bank thieving, we're not going to look into that. the funny money drill, we're not going to look into that. how long does ignoring the corruption of the past by new politicians fly in your politician, in the uk or here? >> i think there's something to clarify here about who made the decision of al megrahi's return. the scottish parliament has separate powers. they loathe david cameron. they loathe gordon brown. they would do anything to mess on their parade. they weren't letting westminster off the hit by going with h decision. it was on a completely separate channel. a compassionate release. the thing you have under the laws in every country. scotland looked at it that way. not to say bp was doing unattractive things. it was trying to get on a separate channel a fast track release deal going under some sort of prisoner transfer agreement. it's telling that the deal for that was signed on the very same day that the deal for drilling oil was signed. you don't have to be that b

decade ago -- or in 2001, george bush came into office inherited a $5.1 trillion ten-year deficit -- or surplus, excuse me. and he decided to give a lot of that away in tax cuts to people who didn't need them, didn't ask for them. well, some of them did ask for them, but we didn't. those tax cuts have cost $2.5 trillion. about half of that went to people, like me and the top 5% of wealth earned income. and we don't think that's good policy. we don't think that was the right choice then and we think it's inexcusable that those tax cuts are continuing now. they were set to expire in 2010 and we're trying to make sure through this tax fairness pledge that they do actually exfire 2010. >> there's a huge difference between the tax rate between those who are wealthy and invest money and those who are poor and have to work for their money. we tax workers vastly higher rates than we tax the wealthy in this country on the belief that the lower taxes on the wealthy will insennivize them to invest in our future we we know that all we've created is a gambling parlnornew york for them to use as gamb
