For more on the president's about base on super pacs and unlimited spending.
That the president wants -- a threat to democracy I'm joined by Forbes media -- and editor in chief Fox News contributor Steve Forbes Steve this is.
Is David Axelrod says we were monthly.
The designer in chief to disarm unilaterally would -- Democracy you'd be in jeopardy if he doesn't return to the Oval Office he did this in 2008 he -- said.
He would do it take government funding for -- campaign when he realized integrating more money.
He -- that aside.
So -- -- rules apply when they're convenient well and these obviously are inconvenient rules and these two the super pac.
Miles immense amounts of money as you know we raised and to be spent.
And in the interest of candidates.
Should should something be done about -- are are we here to play.
Up unfortunately where while not -- fortune the fact is there here repairs stake and I think what this is gonna lead to was a -- by the Supreme Court ultimately.
But the 1976.
-- -- try to put restrictions in the first place.
I think you're gonna see now is law saying you give a -- you have to put it on the Internet.
-- -- seeing now we have a story -- coming on this.
If you go to university like Harvard and give 250000.
Dollars they'll pat you on the head now but maybe invite to the local cocktail party and politics -- be give 250000.
You get to see the president the United States.
So I was I was like money better spent doesn't money money money money is coming big time in to politics because of the decisions are huge involves tens of billions of dollars in terms of federal spending to -- it's been this low relatively as it's been given the stakes involved when I.
I'm a little confused or maybe you can help me.
Because we're we're listening to Axelrod -- they've they've got to be able to compete with Mitt Romney and whomever the nominee may be.
-- -- fund raising them and it's terrible.
And that we're hearing from the Republicans that they're gonna need to what Mitt Romney himself today saying.
That he he really would like to see the other three folks just up voice -- you could focus on trying to raise enough money to compete with the president I mean they've.
Both can't be right surely.
Well that the typical of a candidate especially for your president wanna be president the rules are fine as long as you can have more money than your opponent.
When you have the rules change -- -- we can get more money than by golly that's wrong and we have to change with it so it is that.
People are did you since look -- changes there I said I wasn't sure -- -- family channel so so caught -- I think a flip flops is the beach I don't want the very with politics is very ago.
Speaking of politics the our Republican race is that is that -- or is Rick Santorum in this thing is Newt Gingrich Ron Paul -- -- Well -- for Romney to lose.
And if he doesn't come up with reaganesque themes this thing is gonna drag out because all people see as much flying into each other so Santorum can come in and some of these caucuses -- he does well.
If -- can get adults and or somebody else to -- finance and you'll stay yen.
Romney can only deliver a knockout blow the way Reagan did in 1980.
By having something like bill Kemp Roth tax cut thing radical tax and vacation some other good proposals offline -- Friday chance for that via contracts a great idea and we have to look into that little.
Well I thought it might be appealing and this what we have not -- because he has not given people a reason to -- form we know it does like Obama.
But why you.
And the 59 point plan as we've discussed god only had ten but.
-- and the fact of the matter is the complexity of this suggests that we need some rather.
Comprehensive and comprehensible solutions.
59 points perhaps can be reduced from five point nine something -- -- order.
Steve thanks for being it's like you -- see Steve we'll see you Lou.
