but and old initiatives that got us in this spending mess. i'm not here to say either party escapes from the quagmire we are in. both sides supported them at the time and democrats were putting trillions on budget since that time. the time for blame is over. the time for partisan favoritism should be over, too. i want to know if both parties got us here, why is it republicans that are getting blame for keeping us here? this much i do. john mccain's rapid descent boggles my imagination. but because he challenges on drones he is suddenly disagreeable. forgive him for fearing for what he fears will be carte blanche on drones and make us more secure. rand paul is right to question that. what i find weird is media stars
aligning with the senator to challenge it. the likes of msnbc and jon stewart herald go the republicans that are not obsessed by about opportunity. that is enlightened view. fearing terror and not obsessing about it. so good for senator paul. i might remind him about fickle friend who is now in his corner, not so for john mccain who is only cool that takes on issues that the media likes but are those that stand in the corner. latest doubling standard and kneeing the media i suspect it is not the last. meanwhile, anyone tell you you are too old to do something. 48-year-old bernard hopkins says forget it. he is the old east coast man to ever win a major boxing title. he is not stopping now. this guy, beat a 30-year-old, a
guy old enough to be his son. he was the one running around. find out espn how old is in. >> i'm eric bombing and long with our panel. it's pga and greg is waiting in new york city. this is the five. >> eric: a big victory for people who like pop, a judge just put the kabash on the soda ban and michael bloomberg responded but first. on friday the usda broke the bad news, 48 million americans needed food stamps to put bread on the table and we learned that president obama added $580 billion to the overinflated debt balloon but you wouldn't know it. obama zombies were out in force
trying to convince the american people that everything is a.o.k. and new york times economist paul krugman. >> it's a remarkable document that came out yesterday. about the budget and what it said it is projecting a deficit of $845 billion this year. with a fully recovered economy the budget would be down to $420 billion which is a level that is consistent with stable situation. >> it's adjusted. >> it's back to what it was back in 2006, that is what it was during the height of the housing bubble. so we have basically brought the budget under control but nobody noticed. >> eric: sorry pablo, we are exploding in debt and cbo report proves. and $425 billion simply disappear?
i guess you need a noble prize to figure it out. i was watching that live. he went from $845 billion to $420 billion and where did it go? >> greg: i thought matrix was an alternate universe. but what is it with nancy pelosi and krugman, this iser crazy eyed. that drug is our money. anybody that can think they can have 850 -- on whatever is the deficit is like telling a junkie well done for doing one less speed ball. it's still an addiction. dirty secret. they are saying deficits don't matter. why do we have taxes? >> bob: i want to know what drug you are taking to get yourself oh soe depressed. first of all the president is right. budget deficit has been cut.
there was jobs created last month. there is all kinds of information. unemployment rate fell. the economy is getting stronger. in the meantime, conservatives and republicans, all they can do is moan about it. >> $845 billion in new debt in brand-new debt we're going to do that. >> bob: how much do you think is entitlement. >> eric: here is the problem. krugman was saying everything is fine. we are cool. almost a trillion dollars again. >> kimberly: i don't think it's cause for celebration. sorry bob. this is just reality. we're not going to sit there and heads in our cloud to listen to this nonsense. those are liberal, democratic talking points coming forward to say that everything is okay. it's not okay. just a little bit might have happened. it doesn't mean the rest of it doesn't need to be dealt with. that is the problem. when you look at the numbers they are staggering and they should be taken seriously. >> bob: not that i'm standing up
on the roof with balloons and some people would suggest, jump, but it is cause for celebration when you finally after four years, it's been a long four years, you are better off four years ago. >> who is better off? >> lend some sanity back to the table. trillion dollars add to the deficit we're better off. >> kimberly: the president has right to his bin. cbo report said the clinton era, surplus, when bush blew on all his great programs did not exist. so if he is going to choose this report to hang his hat on, i think that one deserves some credibility, as well. the people that disagree with the president are people like simpson-boles who were asked to do the bipartisan commission to look what we need to have a pro-growth policy in america. also the team of ceos that get
together, they are saying this is a problem for us. it's a problem for job creation and numerous other economists. i just don't think that a 63.5% participation rate in the economy is cause for celebration i think it's great over 277,000 jobs created but what are the underlying factors and where do we go from here? long term trends is troubling. >> temporary jobs, long term jobs. look how many jobs we have lost to begin with. >> eric: he is going to take to place you don't want to go. on the debt. back to 2006 levels and servicing aok and we're not back to 2006 levels. we've added almost $10 trillion since 2006, six years ago and we're still adding a trillion dollars. you can't say we're back to that level. krugman is trying to pull the wool over american eyes.
>> greg: what krugman said i want to challenge and agree with the deficits don't matter. you have said it here before. do you think you can go $17 trillion probably in debt and we could go to 20, 22 trillion, we would still be fine. let's not. have one tax for a year for america, let's see what happens. let's see if you guys are right. >> bob: i think $25 trillion is the level we can handle. >> who what do you base that on? >> bob: the one i base on that is former vice president cheney. >> where do you get $25 trillion was okay. >> bob: that is what cheney said. >> dana: that doesn't, you can't have it both ways. >> eric: our economy is $16 trillion or soe one and a half times our economy is n debt. >> bob: i am saying we could
handle that. >> basically what krugman is saying it is okay. 75% of g.d.p. is fine and if you look at u.k. or japan, they are basically saying those countries are doing great. i lived there. i have family there. it's not great. you have much less disposable income, much less job growth and all the things that are happening with government and regulations putting clamp on people is hurting america. >> they are not motivated to reduce the debt because they don't have a fundamental problem with carrying a deficit. they don't soldier kr eight substantial crisis. >> bob: as from england and other places and compare it to the united states. >> you point out something, krugman is okay with 75% of our economy in the form of debt.
we're at 95% and pushing hundred percent. greece is 110 '%. let's move on. >> bob: it's about the size of los angeles. >> eric: my point is we are deep in debt. so on wednesday, president obama is going to talk to ofa, organizing for action which is his political action group but he is going to sit down and talk. this is group that offered to sell for $500,000 and sits down with the president four times a year. >> that is very blatant. facts are there. if you pony up the cash you get to sit with the big guys. if everybody is okay with that but not try to hide it. the access, that is what you are in. >> the organizations as they set it up, president obama saw it as threat to democracy but now they are not so much of a threat or want to join the threat.
>> campaign reform advocates go from here. >> greg: i want to know what they want. to me it seems like this is change they've been waiting for which is a new universe, a new world order to use the old phrase. they have given america lap band surgery. it's okay if it is the side of belgium. >> bob: they built a campaign organization over a tremendous campaign organization in the history of this country. they need to feed it. if you look what the agenda on the meeting it's everything that obama has been asking congress to do and nothing more and nothing less. it's a way to stimulate grassroots support. >> greg: what they have to sustain a smaller economy and bigger government which is like having a giant man in a tiny car. >> you just said grassroots. >> that is the funniest thing.
>> eric: hold on, $500,000 you can meet with the president but you can't go to white house tour. the lights are still shut on the tours for day three. kimberly, is it time to hash tag open our white house. >> kimberly: i'm ready for it. open up the white house, did they take you up on the offer? >> greg: they would let you win especially if clooney was there. >> and jay carney, press secretary. >> he would hang up on me. we're going to send $200 million to the muslim brotherhood. >> greg: i have to say i disagree with you on the tours. i don't think they deserve field trips, when you have google images, clip it up and look at it. that is what is great at
worldwide web. assistance program shut down for the u.s. military. they signed up because they were hoping to get tuition assistance from the military. a lot of sequestration things are like a shotgun blast hilg all these different things almost without a pattern, but when you look at the pattern you see what it is. it was a way to hurt people --. >> bob: national parks, closing parks, that is everybody, yellowstone. >> eric: it's at a rated three times the department of interior were doing. >> on purpose to make a point is demonize the other side. >> eric: or the obamas sick of people walking through the white house. >> i think was shortsighted but it's going hard for them to do so. i think the pressure will continue.
other thing i heard the air force is thinking about cutting the flyover at the graduation ceremony in may at the u.s. air force academy in colorado springs. that seems like a bad choice. >> a bad choice. >> greg: it's an interesting idea, somebody has come up. with when you pay your taxes, you can check on the 0 where the bulk of your taxes would go. we would probably have the world's greatest, we would have world's greatest military. >> bob: i would check none. i'm sorry this goes into the budget. >> that is on the irs form. >> bob: no, i handwrote it. >> eric: next up, president obama couldn't make her secretary of state after republicans called her out over the benghazi situation but does

state, treasury, down the line, cabinet heads, it's an extremely important position. this is woman who didn't know or was misinformed for a dialogue that blamed the video after benghazi when he is very well knew had nothing to do with the video. very concerning this is going to be in that meeting. >> kimberly: both of those choices. >> and whether she decided to go along with the talking points and this is her reward. >> she is the only person i know who resigned the confirmation she hadn't been confirmed for yet. she was not on the list as far as anybody knows to be secretary of state. as dana pointed out she did a good public relations job but it's critical because the cross point in the white house from all points from the defense and state. my friend that runs the office now, tom donalon he wants to put
had i am in the embassy. that is what is holding susan rice. >> kimberly: you think she is qualified add good choice? >> bob: i don't know enough about it. the ambassador of the u.n. and not be canvassed have request qualified. >> president obama made that a cabinet position so she has a seat at that table. the other part of this job is congressional relations. condi rice was president bush's first security advisor and steve had ley. i remember he would tell me what i needed to know. the questions in the briefing room at the time were 90% foreign policy related. one of the most important roles was congressional relations, calling up congress and keeping them informed even things that weren't supposed to be public yet.
she had had some of the worst congressional relations of anyone that i have seen. she has some repair work. i have no doubt the president has full confidence in her because he had to say saw because when she was up important secretary of state. >> do you feel she would be a good choice, a good fit for this position what you have told us. >> dana: i think the president needs somebody he can trust and he trusts her. that is his judgment call. >> bob: let me make one other pointed why this is so important. under the law that was passed 20 some years ago the hill created the intelligence act to committees both the senate and house. every day, i used to have the job, you had to carry this stuff up to the chairman and ranking member had a chance to review it all. its critically important john. donilan has been doing most of it. but it's really sensitive stuff, believe me. it's not an inconsequential job
by any means. wouldn't it help twa was accurate. >> bob: that stuff is accurate. >> or who burned the video. >> kimberly: that is what i was getting to, the video. >> gregg: this is great thing about the government. if you are incompetent you never worry about losing a job. there is always a place for a failure, if you say she is incompetent, beware, that is racist. that is how it works and sexist. the problem with benghazi is the short attention span of media. benghazi is old magazine in a dentist's office that they pass and throw aside. if americans had been killed by nra members, there would be marches every day. they care more about ben affleck than benghazi. >> bob: there was people magazine 15 years old. they are still interesting.
