Joseph today about how we may be facing yet add another government shut down and with the possibility of one is both parties can't seem to agree on anything self.
We brought our own a bipartisan political -- you -- here to find some common ground with former Clinton pollster Doug -- and former new York Republican congressman.
John the -- -- they are back the dynamic duo to -- solve this whole thing the only she centrist left in America.
But there are -- -- on our show that's become the more more popular think about they say.
What their own parties are doing wrong so you go.
First this time Doug what do the Democrats doing wrong pretty clear we've got serious structural.
Financial problems budgetary problems and goodness gracious Connell the president's jobs bill and how is gonna pay for it.
Look to me like a partisan left wing narrow approach that emphasizes.
Taxing the wealthy now more spending without any of interest in fiscal and He knows it won't pass it's all about the camp it's all about the campaign correct John the Republicans getting it all right -- can't.
Are -- -- you know McConnell here's the thing that I just don't get sensed the debt ceiling talks on August the polls had shown that both the Republicans and Obama took a major hit and they're very unpopular now.
And yet all you ever hear at a Republicans is bashing Obama and walk and what I'm not a centrist -- a conservative and I don't like the Obama program.
But I would like to hear something out of the Republicans that gives me some hope that there's a way out of this mess now why not a positive agenda.
Something good that could work to revive the economy congressman mica was -- -- -- earlier this ours is they're gonna have some sort of a transportation bill.
Maybe that'll have some some spending on infrastructure projects and involved in it now be made -- alternatives to the Obama I'll have to me that's.
Stimulus light I don't I think where the action -- and -- it's not.
On related to Herman Cain winning this straw ballot -- -- get what he's the only guy.
Who at least has some planned during these debates we hear about.
Thing and you sit there -- -- -- at least it's something 9% tax on it but He has not percent national sales Tyrus.
Personal income tax 9% corporate tax so it's not gonna happen but at least it's eight and something new to talk about sort of just dump them on the present all talk appreciate guys come on all the time and -- we talk about the possibility.
In this election in 2012.
That there might be a third party that comes and it challenges.
President Obama and the whoever the Republican nominee He has this is organization people may have read about it called Americans -- -- try to put that together.
-- Doug maybe you can give us some insight on that is that serious is that really gonna happen.
And if so how does it affect the dynamic what really nominate somebody -- It is serious there's gonna be fifty state ballot access and online nominating convention and online platform.
And a candidate will emerge now I can't speak for whose gonna want -- runnerup will be drafted but I can say this is a serious effort to change American.
Politics and give the sixty or 70% of the American people who are dissatisfied.
This the only problem I would think people bring up a third party candidates -- -- -- what you think congressman but it's.
In the past -- Ross Perot in 1992 rented a smaller extent but maybe just as influential.
Ralph Nader in 2000 especially in Florida.
Take votes away from another candidate and thereby help somebody else to get elected -- that there spoilers that's that's.
The bad way of this thing could go the good way is.
There is a gigantic vacuum in the political process people don't like either party right but a third party can't win and the -- they can be brought.
-- was not only -- thing for four months.
John Anderson was competitive when He began in 1980s so to my way of thinking the system makes it tough to win not the voters do you know what.
You know it at the end of the day -- had not popularity contest maybe in a bit more to cliche to describe what a presidential election as -- it's gotta be somebody dynamic that come.
-- -- and by the -- say yeah that's a person who could run as a third party candidate and they can actually be.
Obama in the republic our guess I'd say the following yup Jon Huntsman is now running 2%.
Is a lot better positioned as an independent that He is well as a republic has not had.
No I'm not suggesting He is but I'm saying.
That kind of a candidate a business leader Howard Schultz Coca whose.
-- out with from Starbucks Starbucks a plague on both your houses don't contribute well you know what.
-- in 1992 when Ross Perot emerged.
People didn't take him seriously that is John has suggested -- one appearance on national TV and He was a believes.
Larry king and Larry -- Larry King all get on and and He was leading us as Doug said in June He was ahead of the president of the United States the first bush and bill -- we have to wrap up due to wonderful gentleman yet again I will say the book day in.
Insurance defense at least He had a couple names you've been -- at this for months and won't name anybody who has got a secret name I know next time.
