bookies are either charlotte or alice. we saw prince william head out to collect prince george before they all left as a family. of course prince george wasn't part of the leaving shot. he must have been snuck out a side door but he was brought into the hospital to get a first glimpse at his little sister before she was brought home this evening. that was kind of a touching shot too, to see prince william with his little boy trying to get the little boy to walk into the hospital but no the boy wanted to be in his father's arms and they stood outside waving happily to the crowd. i think little prince george looked quite surprised to see this mass of flashbulbs and cameras as he would be and that may be one of the reasons they decided not to do a family photo all together at the end, because it may have been a bit much for him. but i have to say, he didn't take his eyes off us and it was impressive, his poise, at the tender age of 20 months. so they have all gone back now to kensington palace which is their city residence, and we understand they will be there for a couple of days then h

why he's not the same as george w. bush? because obama is clearly trying to link the two and you say it's not better, it is better and by the way, he'd take us right bab to bush. >> i think it's late to be doing that, paul. on this bush issue, i think perhaps what romney should be doing is point out how false this charge is. george bush did not cause financial collapse of autumn of 2008. that was obviously rooted in toxic mortgage-backed securities, a policy that dated back at least 15 years, including democrats who supported this sort of thing. that's explainable. so, i think he should put some distance between himself and that and then talk about what barack obama did in response to it, which was to spend 18 months passing the affordable health care act which had nothing to do with raising jobs and the economy. >> paul: we'll see if he gets that and chase his chief efforts. when we come back, the attack on the u.s. embassy in benghazi leaves the white house scrambling. was it terrorism, was it pre planned, next. in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks great. didn't

clinton was president and even since george w. bush was president with immigration on the right and issues like education, common core hillary obviously the party has moved to the left. they both have to define themselves both against their predecessors and within the reality that they're confronting right now. and i think in that event the other day jeb bush did a pretty good job of stepping away from the past. >> kim, let's talk briefly about donald trump. i think we can stipulate he's never going to be president of the united states he's not going to win the republican nomination but he'll probably be if the current polling sticks in the debate. what will be his impact on the republican field? could he do some damage to the eventual nominee? >> he absolutely could because he plays up to some of the worst stereotypes that some voters have out there about republicans, i mean this is the guy that started the birther movement. he is very anti-immigration. he's got a lot of conspiracy theories. and this is just -- it leaves the impression that the entire republican field is that way a

the 81st attorney general of the united states under george w. bush. judge, welcome. >> good to be here. paul: let's focus first on what's the appropriate behavior for a senior justice department official like the fbi director in interacting with the president of the united states because when you go into the oval office it's intimidating thing, i guess. how was he supposed to behave when the president pulls him aside and says something like he said with -- by michael flynn? >> the same way he would behave any place else. yes, the oval -- the idea of the oval office is intimidating, he may be in fact, intimidating for the first few times you're there, for the first 15 minutes. [laughter] >> if you've been -- the u.s. attorney in two districts f you've been the deputy attorney general f you've been for a number of years, the director of the fbi and you're intimidated by being in the oval office, you're in the wrong job. paul: how should he have react today that? >> if he thought what he says he thought, mr. president, we can't have this conversation. >> and he said he thought he was

offered nothing except we're not george bush and we don't like iraq. >> well, i don't think republicans-- some republicans don't want to run that way. there's something very interesting going on in the senate which is that senator jim demint, who is the head of the senate steering committee is posing his own-- south carolina. own candidate in opposition, in california come up with a candidate conservative businessman named chuck debore who he's running against carle fee or rina. in florida o'rubio, against charlie crist. the democrats will say this means that the republican party is once again tearing each other up. i think it's good competition, if at the end of the day the winners of those primaries are supported by the republican voters. >> and you'll have interesting trends in 2009. the two governorships in virginia and new jersey going republican. >> right. >> and you had some democrats in vulnerable districts announcing they're not going to run. you had a party switch, conservative democrat switching to the republican party. so, it will be interesting to see if the republican can

america, a group headed by former new york governor george pataki and targets new york congressman john hall. . >> congressman hall voted for obama care, government run health care is a bad plan. bureaucrats will benefit, seniors will get hurt. costs will go up, care will go down. longer weights in doctor's offices, you're right to keep your own doctor may be taken away. it's a plan we didn't want and don't need, but hall voted for it anyway. defeat congressman hall. >> well, kim, that was subtle. [laughter] >> the democrats that remain-- have maintained radio silence about health care all summer, suddenly, they speak up. why get back into this debate now? >> well, the reason the president is jumping back in here is because things are looking so dismal, i think that there's a fear in the white house that if they don't go out there, someone doesn't go out there and start saying something nice about the health care bill, there's going to be, come january, not just republicans, but members of the president's own party, that are out there saying that the bill needs to be revealed in so

foreign policy speeches with a bit of a grain of salt, paul. remember when george w. bush was running for president he talked about a more humble foreign policy. obama promised to close down guantanamo. he extended many of president bush's policies. so it is hard to say at this stage of the game what mitt romney really means and what and how he might act as commander in chief. >> and in afghanistan and syria, dan, pretty general comments by governor romney, not real specific, particularly on syria which is the hottest issue now going. pretty much stayed a step back about saying what he would do. >> syria is a difficult issue. afghanistan the president said he is pulling troops down. it is difficult for romney to say i will push troops back up. >> particularly when the american public seems to be war weary and supports this withdrawal. >> i think matt made an important distinction that needs to be emphasized. this isn't just president obama this is modern democratic foreign policy doctrine calling it leading from behind. which means we only act until we get the support of allies report

from california. even george w. bush from texas. they would come in and clean up the mess along with some executive experience. why aren't the republican governors running this time, former and current, considered to be outsiders enough? >> well, i think we're discovering the intensity of the anger at the status quo. >> politics as usual? >> well, that's the question. what exactly are all these people angry about? we say the system. by the system do they mean the economy right now? poor job creation? or do they mean the system itself, system of checks and balances, and that's made it difficult for congress to operate. >> that's having a problem with the constitution. >> james madison. >> exactly. if you reach that point, then you have a kind of anger that equates to something like you're seeing in europe right now where people are just po' d at the central government, and they want to get rid of it. >> i would argue that one of these gfz probably is going to emerge as a major alternative to one of the outsider candidates as the campaign moves forward. what do you think, james? >> tha
