whether or not george zimmerman is guilty in the crime of the death of 17-year-old trayvon martin. in this hour, you're going to hear from one of the main voices in the case with a new candid perspective never before heard. martin savage sat down with lead defense attorney mark o'mara, and we tried to do the same with prosecutors and the martin family. however, they are choosing to speak after a verdict is reached. but o'mara offered to open up just after he finished his closing argument, knowing he has said and done all he can for his client. >> you were not the first attorney in this case? >> no, i wasn't. i was sort of second and third. >> so there's a period you were actually a spectator before you became involved. >> and a commentator. i was commenting on it a little bit. >> what were you thinking about this case at that time? >> when i commented at first, i looked at it and said, you got to be careful with the stand your ground law, because it allows people to do things they can do sort of morally. don't take advantage of a statute in doing things you do. and there's a lot about

, president obama makes the case that he inherited a horrible economy from george w. bush. it's better now, though not great, better now than when he began office. that's the president's case. the republicans are saying the obama administration has too much regulation on the economy. most of them don't like the wall street package that was passed by the congress and signed by the president. so it's an anti-obama, anti h anti-democrat message you get from the republicans. they said they would cut spending. whether cutting spending is the right thing to do when you want to increase employment is the question, but debt is driving the economy right now, not so much employment. iowa and new hampshire are two states that have an unemployment rate higher than the others. >> bob, this debate is going to hinge on whether or not, as we're talking about, maybe other leg down in the economy. forget the depression talk, but there is some talk that things might weaken a little bit. this idea of cutting spending right now, it really flies in the face of what democrats are trying to push. >> most econ

that people still believe this was started by george bush. however, it is very difficult for this president and these democrats to go into the election with two big numbers. 9.5% unemployment and history-making mortgage foreclosure rates. if you take those two things together, though are two things people really get. and if they aren't unemployed and haven't lost their house they're scared they might be unemployed or lose their house. those are two very gut-wrenches figures. when they look at that and say, there are many who are employed, but, yes, they worry about their jobs. i think those are two figures that dog the democrats as they move into these elections, and while people may blame george bush for the explosion as they see it of this recession, they certainly expected the stimulus, for instance, to produce more jobs than it has so far. >> let me ask you this, paul. of the three major legislative victories for this legislation, i want to put stimulus apart because when they came in, it was a very different time. but health care and financial regulatory reform, the response

also, i might say, the polls show that the public is kind of tired of blaming george w. bush. they now believe as you say that the president has ownership of the economy. let me go now to rowland martin. isn't there something to be said though for the major republican argument which is that government has gotten too large and it's inefficient and needs to be made smaller? that's a pretty good campaign argument, isn't it? >> it's always been the campaign argument and it sounds great until all of a sudden you raise the hood up and say, what does that really mean? for instance, we have the bp oil spill. what was the one thing we heard, where are the people checking these oil wells, why weren't they having these inspections? all of a sudden you go back and realize, too few of them. then republicans will then say, too much regulation, we shouldn't have too many people checking on different things. that's the problem. here's what i find to be amazing. when i was seeing unemployment numbers, we've had 15 consecutive months of private sector job growth. when the numbers have numbers nor jobs,

who was against the bailout very clearly but still has deep roots in michigan. his father, george, was governor of the state. he was born there. how is this playing out in michigan? >> ali, it was surprising to see the president go to michigan this early on. if the president loses michigan which you said is a battleground state, but it is a sort of leading democrat state. then things don't look too well for the president come this november. it was not surprising in reaching out to voters in michigan that the president would highlight the fact he supported the bailout and his likely opponent mitt romney did not. as a matter of fact, back in november of 2008, the former massachusetts governor wrote an op-ed in the "new york times" titled "let detroit go bankrupt" in which he voiced his opposition to the bailout saying it would basically wipe out the american automotive industry. while the president didn't mention mitt romney by name in dearborn this week, it was no secret who he was talking about. >> jim acosta, good to see you, thank you for reporting for us. >>> next economists blame p

be allowed in the future. just as it hasn't been under george w. bush, to negotiate lower drug prices using a huge bargaining leverage it otherwise would have. this means if in fact this was the deal that drug prices would stay quite high and it would put a crimp in overall long-term reductions in health care spending. >> your column, your piece on this issue was scathing. very outspoken about what you see as an alliance between these two. we spoke to the pharmaceutical president, representing the drug companies and asked about this deal and the reports it's going to save about $80 billion in health care costs in exchange for the government agreeing not use purchasing power to lower drug costs. he said, "there is no secret agreement. we were clear with the administration you can sign us up as partners but we will not support price controls because of its impact on research and development. when the senate and finance releases the plan you will see saving for seniors fixing the doughnut hole and approximately $50 billion as a mix of fees and receipts to expand health coverage to

against the bailout, but he's got deep roots there. his father, george, was the governor of michigan. no republican has won michigan since president h.w. bush won did in 1988. talk to me about romney's chances there. >> as you mention, he's got deep roots there, but the bailout, which didn't hurt him in the primary, ali, a more conservative electorate there, but it could hurt him in the general election against president obama. what does it look like right now in the battleground state? it looks pretty close. take a look at this. the most recent poll in michigan. this is from epics mra, it was earlier this month, and you can see a four-point advantage for the president according to this poll, but that's basically dead even. go to the next one, and michiganders seem to be more optimistic these days whether their state's going in the wrong direction or the wrong track. one of the reasons why you're seeing that turnaround, unemployment in michigan down 8.8% now. it was in double digits last year. still higher than the national average. you mentioned the bailouts, we were talking about that.

looking at. second place was ronald reagan in about 14% and third place was george w. bush. the debt increased massively under president obama in part because of the stimulus. obama and the democrats extended the bush tax cuts. if you say that is somebody else's policy they say they are destroying the economy but they refused to let them expire. so i think that president obama most importantly really dropped the bowles-simpson commission. we pushed that because of the things that happened. we pushed the debt to really high levels. when it gets that high it is bad for growth. it is something you talk about a lot. he had a commission that came up with a pretty good plan and he dropped it. i think that is why it is fair to attack. >> i agree with you on that. we spoke to allen simpson and reminded everybody that paul ryan who pointed out that president obama basically dropped simpson bowls voted against it. he was one of the people on the committee and voted against it because it wasn't perfect. that wasn't the right thing to do. >> it wasn't up on capitol hill. they didn't submit it as
