? >> sure. good morning, george. thank you for having me here. the closeout crew will be informed that at the lock area we have a series of pumps that pump the liquid oxygen up to the vehicle. and we have a bearing problem, temperature with one of the pumps. but ntd will come over, and they'll let travis thompson know exactly what's going to happen. there's a possibility there'll be a loud venting noise when they switch it over. pressure might come up, they might have to vent the locked tank. and in the event the crew and our or closeout crew in the white room will be able to hear that because it's right out of the top of the tank, you know, 70 feet above them. the switchover probably won't take very long, and it really won't effect our guys in the white room or the crew. it's a gse function, and the ground support guys will take care of it in a timely manner, and it won't cause any hold-up, i'm sure. they'll be right in and out, and it looks like room in the white room's going right along. travis has got the crew. they've been pulling potty platforms out. we have a temporary inst

miss him greatly. now, madam president, on another issue, i rise to pay tribute to senator george voinovich who has served this chamber and the people of ohio with honor over the past 12 years after an already long career as a devoted public servant. george has served in the ohio state house, as ohio's lieutenant governor, as the mayor of cleveland, as governor of ohio, and as a u.s. senator. that's quite a record of accomplishment. when george walks out of the chamber for the last time, he will have served 44 years in public service. yet, in a career that's taken -- yet, in a career that's taken him from cleveland to columbus to washington and around the world, george has always made time for his family. no one was surprised when in january, 2009, he announced that he planned to retire at the end of this year in order to spend more time with janet. george and janet have been married for nearly half a century, and they have seen a lot together. george grew up in the same working class neighborhood in cleveland where he and janet still call home today. he attended coolingwood high

the tuskegee airmen, and george hickman, a washington resident and a tuskegee airman was truly part of america's greatest generation. they were the catalyst for an eventual desegregation of the entire united states military, and on march 19, 1941, the 99th pursuit squadron was formed at tuskegee institute in alabama. when the united states was waging war against tyranny broad, the members of what became known as the tuskegee airmen fought it and fought around the globe for us. breaking barriers is never easy, and the time and competence and patriotism of these african-americans sometimes were openly questioned. but the tuskegee airmen didn't listen to those critics. they were fighting for what this country could be, not what it was, and in the first class of graduates, there was only five, but before the war ended, almost a thousand pilots went through combat training at tuskegee. of those 450 flew planes in the 99th squadron and the 332nd fighter group in missions across europe. and they used the steely resolve they had shown in the face of racism to their advantage. the 99th conducte

was a dangerous era in our history. it was expertly managed by george bush senior and i would suggest were in the writings. there is a book called armageddon's verdict. my question was back your comments earlier from the crisis years. that kennedy attacked nixon during the 1960 campaign for being soft on communism and lacking in defense posture. dear member the debate issue where nixon attacks kennedy for being soft on communism. the book only about devotes 10 pages, "the crisis years", 10 pages out of 100 pages. >> guest: the book was very much about the relationship between kennedy and khrushchev. i think you're absolutely right in terms of the importance of the end of the cold war and as a matter of fact, peter, do you want to pull that one out? the jackie kennedy book their? i actually wrote a book that is not history. but actually covers that. matt, which went on to become deputy secretary of state at the highest level. what we did there was from early 1989 until the end of 1991, the two of us were able to talk to soviet leaders and we would have american leaders, including jim b

times while george w. bush was president, increasing the debt limit by $4 trillion. in fact, when the speaker voted to increase the debt limit by nearly $1 trillion one time alone in 2003, he didn't demand it be accompanied by massive spending cuts or any spending cuts. instead, a republican congress approved hundreds and billions of dollars of tax cuts for the wealthy which contributed to our massive debt, and they were all on borrowed money. all those massive tax cuts that people received around the country were on america's credit card that's now come due. congress has raised the debt limit 89 times since it was created in 1939. 54 times with republican presidents. 34 times, 35 times under democrat presidents. ronald reagan asked congress to raise the limit 18 times, and we raised it. twice as many as any other president. republicans never claimed then that the issue was the president's problem. for republicans to claim now that the deficit is a problem only for the president or democrats in congress is even more irresponsible. it is even more irresponsible concerning president bus

george washington and his army faced seemingly insurmountable odds. it was cold, his men were ill equipped and outmatched. it was then on december the 23rd, 1776, only two days before that pivotal battle of trenton that washington sought to inspire his small volunteer army by reading aloud from thomas paine's powerful work, the pamphlet "crisis." today we can read the words that ragged band of revolutionaries heard that day in 1776. these are the times that try men's souls, but he that stands it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman, and we have this consolation with us that the heart of the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. sure of their cause, they pressed on to victory, and thus began the long, rich history of our nation. those early days, however, were not the darkest and most uncurve kern days our -- uncertain days our nation would see. years later, as we all know, the descendants of those revolutionary heros would face each other, sometimes brother against brother, fighting over the future and direction of our growing nation. the early 20th century brought

were three main factors that account for that. in 1990, the congress and president george h.w. bush were able to agree to legislation that controlled spending and increased revenues as well. that was the omnibus reconciliation act of 1990. it for the first time enacted paygo rules. it also increase taxes on the wealthiest americans by raising the top income tax rate from 28% to 31%. at the time president george h.w. bush said -- this is a -- quote -- "it's time i think it's past time to put the interest of the country first." end quote. over the next five years this legislation did reduce the deficit by a total o of $480 billion. so that was one of the factors that got us to that period of balanced budget an surplus. -- and surplus. the second factor was in 1993 when the congress and president clinton agreed, again, to legislation and increased control spending. this legislation once again raised taxes on the wealthiest americans. over the five years following that, the legislation reduced the deaf si by $430 -- deficit by $430 billion and revenue increases were responsible for over

degree from george washington university, a veteran, and at one time the youngest captain in the marine corps. a former chief of staff to a u.s. senator from massachusetts, and then top assistant and legal counsel to the president of the united states. now, this doesn't sound like the type of man that we would find himself sitting alone in a federal prison cell, but that's exactly what happened to chuck colson and what happened there changed his life forever. known as president nixon's hatchet man, colson pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in the daniel elseburg case in the watergate scandal and went from white house special counsel to incarcerated felon. in fall, from a confidante of the president of the united states to a federal prison cell is about as far and as deep as anyone could fall. that's what we call hitting rock bottom. but rock bottom for chuck colson became a time of repentance, a time of grace, and a time of transformation. far from the rose garden, he was behind those prison bars where chuck colson made one of the most important decisions of his life, one that wou

[laughter] um, well, yes and no. i think, obviously, politically republicans distanced themselves from george w. bush because it was politic thing to do. numbers don't lie. he became very unpopular. parties tend not to embrace figures and politicians who become unpopular. my view is that a lot of the distress over bush's domestic agenda from which republicans fled beginning really in 2005 had, it was a, it was an ancillary result of the failure to secure victory in iraq early and to have a favorable reckoning -- >> so iraq sank what might have been a successful domestic policy agenda? >> right. well, what i mean is that i think the entire country stopped listening to president bush on what would be e

always has been. that goes back to george washington's time. but the truth is the government does an incredible amount to help people in their lives every single day. the benefits of government are not always visible. they don't usually make the evening news, but they are enormously important and they make specific and large differences. this government looks after veterans. otherwise they wouldn't be looked after. the private sector wouldn't do it, and the private sector is sometimes very reluctant actually to participate in the helping of them. but when they come home from battle, the government is there with an expanded veterans administration system, superb medical health care to take care of them. it takes care of seniors with our medicare and our social security programs. we have a medicaid and we have children's health insurance program; vastly important in a state like my own, or anybody's. because they provide comprehensive health coverage to our most vulnerable public options, including -- most vulnerable populations, including children. we do this, we pass this because it'

continuity between two vastly different presidents, george w. bush, and barack obama when it comes to this conflict. the most important continuity. both have said we are at war. both have side we are at war with al-qaeda and its affiliates. i was watching president obama's inauguration, and carefully looking for signals with regard to this very fundmental thing, and he actually said we are a nation at war. that was somewhat satisfying for someone from my background and point of view. it's not definitive. nobody argued we're at war in iraq or afghanistan. i wanted evidence he believed that we were at war with the groups that attacked us on september 11th. .. he would use law enforcement authorities but he would not limit himself just to law enforcement authorities. he would actually use his authority sounds commander-in-chief to wage war against a foreign enemy. i'm sure you all remember in 2009 after just a few weeks in office president obama was awarded the nobel peace prize. by and large i thought it was awarded because he wasn't president bush and the europeans wanted to confirm that fa

nominees have waited on average four times longer to be confirmed than those nominated by george bush -- the second george bush. even highly qualified nominees, nominees who are eventually confirmed unanimously or almost unanimously, routinely wait for months to be confirmed. because of the delaying telecommunication takes used by -- tactics used by my republican colleagues. tomorrow we're going to consider caitlin joan halligan to be judge. she was nominated for the second time to fill a vacancy on the u.s. court of appeals for the d.c. circuit. this is a court that was formed some 65 years ago. it was done because the supreme court couldn't do the cases, didn't have time to do them, and the circuit courts were overwhelmed with work; they couldn't do it. the d.c. circuit many consider just a tiny notch below the supreme court. in fact, pat leahy, the chairman of the judiciary committee, here said yesterday that many feel it's more important than the supreme court because they have sufficient wide-ranging jurisdiction. and once they make a decision, rarely does the supreme court

way from george washington to george w. bush and saddling my 20 kids and grandkids with $3 trillion of -- of -- of the -- of extra spending and so that's the problem that we have. and i would have to say as i learned in my successful battle against the cap-and-trade, truth eventually triumphs. winston churchill said that truth is and i couldn't vertible, ignorance may -- the end result would be that the senators will be able to -- to continue to work for the needs of the states as senator demint is doing and as i'm doing right now. but first all of the reforms necessary to clean up the process will occur and, secondly, we can limit president obama or any future president from claiming our cons -- from -- taking our constitutional rights by subjecting him to the same transparency. i think this is very significant. and i just believe after all this talk all of these years, particularly in the last two years, that we can now -- are at the point where we can go ahead and satisfy everyone. if they want to ban earmarks, fine. but at the same time put the transparency in the system that is

in the polling among latino voters and the margin is quite high. it's important to remember george w. bush and karl rove have a brilliant strategy of outreach to the hispanic voters and a less successful. george bush won at least 40% of the vote. it's more like 40. stila does a remarkable accomplishment, and now he's pulling at best in the mid-20s with the hispanic vote and his own campaign said the need to reach 38% nationally to be competitive in the state where the latino vote will be critical, so the republican party lurched to the right in recent years instead of george w. bush, karl rove, john mccain. let's reach out to the hispanics and make reform something. it's become a party that mitt romney says there is a model he's promised a veto. the gerry before the radical policy prescription called deportation, the idea of making life so miserable here that immigrants are literally purged from the country so it's hurt badly but hispanics. the strategy, that strategy means as you point out in your excellent paper, really the southwest is out of reach in large part because of this. t

hadley was george w. bush national security adviser, one of the most distinguished national security advisers as my former colleague hugo dobler explained convincingly in a recent book on that position, historically in the united states. steve also was the coleader last year with former secretary of defense, bill perry with an assessment of the 2010th quadrennial defense review that seems like 100 years ago already in time so we time so we knew it fiscal issues the deficit debate was far different than in the aftermath of the n-november of a drug revolution when the tea party came to town and everything else happened has been subsequently what would like to do this morning is to begin by myself posing some questions to each of the panelists to frame the discussion and then of course go to you because we are fortunate enough to have television coverage today. when we go to the crowd, please identify yourself, wait for a microphone and ask a short question cannot be specific about who you are addressing it to if you would. i want to begin with alice because i think for a number of reas

. >> with george to be bush having been satisfied leaving saddam hussein in power? >> at that time my conversation with the president he made it clear we were satisfied then he would not had the rationale to go and conduct the invasion and may have been ugly but he would have stayed in place but he felt it was necessary based on the intelligence we had that it was in the interest of the of world with that absence of that kind of agreement it was appropriate. i supported him that every tried the when but of great disappointment is we did not do well be made strategic mistakes the president was told for months we would preserve the iraqi army to establish all the positions than suddenly one morning it happened and it was not well coordinated to not consider all the chaos in their other mistakes that were made either great believer in my own doctor and lawyer dash doctrine that is something i made up.

greater than the sum total of every single one of his predecessors combined, from george washington to george w. bush. this is a staggering amount of debt that we've imposed on ourselves, our kids, our grandkids, our economy, our ability to be a productive country. and what did the president say in response to all this debt? give me the authority to borrow more, with no conditions. we're not even going to have a discussion or a negotiation about the underlying problem that's causing all this debt. and i think that's, frankly, outrageous. and it's extremely unusual because for decades now american presidents have met with congress and when we've had discussions in the past about the level of debt and what we're going to do about it and when the presidents have said we need to increase our debt ceiling so that we can borrow more money, that has very typically included a discussion about dealing with the underlying problems. there are many examples, mr. president. back in 1985 during the reagan administration, it was in the context of a debt ceiling debate that we passed the gramm-rudm

george miller, congresswoman row is a del -- rosa delaura. people on the outside. judy lickman in 1993 was head of the legal women's defense fund. she and her colleague played critical rules in getting the fmla written, introduced and across the finish line. i want to mention those heroes who worked so hard for this important bill. but there's still more work to do, mr. president, to insure that families are fully able to see their family responsibilities as well as maintain economic security. today workers are ineligible to take fmla for a variety of reasons. some workers do not have enough tenure with their current employer, even if they have been in the workforce for years. you see, the fmla requires a year of service. but in today's economy, workers more frequently change jobs. and, of course, family emergencies happen without warning. other workers are not able to accumulate the required 1,250 hours of work at a single employer in the preceding year. with the growth in part-time work, both by choice and by necessity, more workers may be ineligible for fmla even though they are lon

america was $5 trillion. clinton left office, handed the keys to president george w. bush and said next year, welcome to washington, another surplus, $120 billion surplus, the economy created 123 million jobs in my eight years, and i wish you the best. he left. turned the keys over to president george w. bush and gave him control for eight years. eight years later, another snapshot. the national debt was no longer $5 trillion. it was $11 trillion, more than doubled under president george w. bush. we had lost jobs, dramatically lost jobs in america, unlike president clinton and when george w. bush handed the keys over to president obama and said welcome to washington, next year's budget deficit is $1.2 trillion. a different story, isn't it? the suggestion is democrats just don't get it right when it comes to deficits, but republicans do. history tells us otherwise. president obama inherited one of the weakest economies since the great depression. in fact, we were teetering on another depression. the month that he took the oath of office, putting his hand on abraham lincoln's bobby, we lo

start treaty. the list of endorsers includes president george h.w. bush, george shultz, jim baker, jim schlesinger, henry kissinger, brent scowcroft, colin powell, condoleezza rice, stephen hadley, howard baker, laurence eagleburger and frank carlucci. many of these officials served at a time when the stakes related to russian nuclear arms were even higher than they are today. during the cold war uncertainty over russia's intentions and weapons advanced, and this cost us tens if not hundreds of billions of dollars. an academic industry developed that was devoted to parsing soviet military capabilities. this was one of the biggest, if not the biggest expenses of our intelligence budget each year, and the fact that we could not accurately judge soviet military capabilities led us to elevate our spending on weaponry out of a sense of caution. these times were dominated by contradictory risk assessments and rumors about dangerous new soviet weapons systems. we were constantly worried about missile gaps, destabilizing arms deployments or soviet technology breakthroughs. and all of this came

and move on the media fund on the other side actually out advertised george w. bush in 2004. you may have a passionate you may disagree or agree with what was said but it wasn't the case only one side had voice. and we can talk about what's happened in american elections, very, very significant changes in campaign finance law and how that has changed the distribution of who enters between candidates, parties and groups, and clearly groups are airing more ads. but when you look back at the 2002 midterms, 2006 midterms, 2010 midterms, you look at top senate races, over all it was not the case in competitive races that one side had a voice and the other side didn't have a voice. people have plenty of time, plenty of chance to hear their say. in fact, the most one-sided advertising i ever saw was in the 2008 presidential race when john mccain took the federal money, barack obama didn't. that said, even though barack obama heavily out advertised the john mccain campaign, you can't say that john mccain did not have a chance to respond, either through debate, either through free media cover

coburn and sherrod brown, would build off a proposal put forward in president george w. bush's fiscal year 2009 budget proposal to rescind $626 million in highway earmarks that were over a decade old and still had less than 10% of the funding utilized. "transportation weekly" did an analysis of these earmarks at the time. they found that over 60% of the funding, $389 million, was in 152 earmarks that had no funding spent or obligated from them. these clearly are either unwanted or low priority for the designated recipients. and this is nothing against transportation funding either, of course. i fully realize the need for reinvestment in our crumbling infrastructure and its potential for job creation in hard-hit segments like construction. but, madam president, having hundreds of millions of dollars sit in an account untouched at the department of transportation does nothing to address our infrastructure needs or put people back to work. i've tried to build on president bush's concept a little and my amendment expands this rescission to all transportation earmarks that are over 10 year

george washington -- george washington's men swore by washington and 76. or david mccullough spoke 1776, were new citizens from all over the world become americans. vitality of that dream is by herbert crowley's book, the promise of american life, written in 1909, a century ago, still as powerful today. the first chapter of crawlies progressive manifesto could be read with enthusiasm and in a tea party, but it is the rest of the boat that we propose to discuss in dispute today. for his remaining chapters, he argues that for individuals to realize the promise of american life, the central government in washington must play a much larger role. his book launched the progressive movement, featuring first president wilson and now president obama. his is a strategy of made in washington policies, grand schemes to solve national problems, based upon the assumption that these are things that individual americans simply can't do for ourselves. in 1995, as ken said, at the hudson institute's request, checker fan and i edited a book which we call the new promise of american life. checker and
