Rebecca -- -- -- filming -- Naomi we're we're just how about you think that there is such sophistication in this country that.
The folks -- When considering politics are familiar with the -- of capital flows from between Asia Europe and the United States but not the unemployment rate in this country.
Why is that.
No I think they're familiar with the unemployment rate what I mean what I meant to -- to is that.
I think that what you see on the left and right is a lot of not behind -- about the messaging about the economy has one example.
-- you guys were talking earlier about.
Refunds and military.
Dan's talking about how money was not -- there was being cut from recovering warriors I think the average man woman on -- certainly servicemen and women from across the political spectrum that -- Talk to and they don't buy that's -- -- when he know that what is it 600 billion dollars net latest national defense authorization act.
A bulk of that money which is not transparent you can oversee can't find out exactly what went where the bulk of that -- going to contractors it's not going to her basement and when they're suffering their.
They're excited about it exactly we should the Obama jobs program today this is a lot of he flips to military I don't know what -- is but it it it I would even say the American public its -- going to be it's hosted at port is going to be can assess those -- -- I don't -- make your point -- ahead.
I I do think that -- that Americans and forget the world you're sitting on your account for about a job it doesn't matter what I tell you -- -- matter would you attack and that it would Obama tells you and that's as much of the Democrats are gonna use this.
Positive growth in this announcement about the military budget.
People are going to feel it particularly the military particularly those people on their cats that don't have job.
-- to follow me on his part is that a track -- for these Republican presidential candidates.
To invest too deeply in these cuts because Bob gates had called the previous Defense Secretary Republican and democratic administration.
It called for the same the same direction.
I mean for current Donald Rumsfeld was trying to Smart not the US military make it more efficient a lean mean machine.
He was -- he wanted to do far more actually than what is represented here in these these cuts is that potential liability for candidates to step in.
I think there's a lot of waste fraud and abuse in the department no question but we're talking about I think something totally different when you have Obama's own Defense Secretary coming out Leon Panetta saying.
This is absolutely the wrong way to go because it was done for the super committee just blanket cuts.
Now you have additional cuts in this I I think that I think you gotta be mindful of what what that.
Means in the global.
State with world war into it at the -- but I -- I can't believe I'm not hearing a war ended one of our wars and I was amazingly.
Banging my head when you guys are talking about.
If you know how there has to be two and half force strategy like a minute we've got to have to have -- -- I think we have like seven and declared illegal conflicts -- now around the world with under the.
Up immediately if you look at a war in Iraq it's overconfident and you don't think violence is gonna spike I cat and I only fourteen billion less -- I'm so glad you -- I'm so I don't understand more and yes you know.
Naomi the violence if -- -- actually here's Andrew Baum.
No violence says -- like this are -- are you aren't it's.
It's done human I don't disagree we probably agreed right on the Iraq or what I'm telling you -- -- schools we will not -- with -- -- -- her journey finished.
You do not -- crystal ball nobody does.
And the fact you can say a war and -- and we're not gonna have more violence in the Middle East.
Is -- -- -- we'll we'll have more -- -- -- outsourcing violence is that if if I may interject on that but we you know do well in the markets you know American that's my dad to create jobs for it finally it's really bad to have war BR major exports.
If I may interject the yeah Lou Dobbs show.
It is actually -- that the audiences show and and what I think both of you were communicating.
Is there are very important points of view here and it's important because as only says -- war has ended.
Well but unfortunately wars continue in Afghanistan we have troops -- -- 140.
Other countries around the world -- we are them if -- -- some.
Are we also are invested in the basis for our troops in South Korea in German.
In -- in the United Kingdom -- immense experience to a nation that is frankly on the verge of bankruptcy.
If this -- -- a discussion about how to spend money wisely how to.
Station our troops intelligently and whether -- that comes down to a discussion of whether to bring our troops home rather than base them.
Far from -- And what is the intelligent way to pursue US strategic interest I think that we're going to all have -- a very positive result so I'm kind of excited about it.
In the in as much as -- buy into neither your perspective.
But nor yours -- but I think you both for being here do you think they're -- thank you so much you appreciate you up.
