What did you -- the ground -- the administration is probably.
Focusing in on this choice being the nominee for secretary of state.
And cheese can meet with defenders who have expressed publicly come.
Serious reservations about her nomination.
And I think they're starting to back away from that a little bit and she's trying to do the diplomatic dance before the nomination come.
This is some medium that McCain demand and -- that she.
-- -- The meeting -- told.
So she will meet with the acting CIA director and her and three -- And I think go over how she got to.
The statement that you made on the spots on the talk.
So she's adjusted and ignorant.
-- -- okay.
Was -- assignment did some just whistle -- into some McCain's comments he sounded as though.
On -- more amenable to.
In a president by -- real stand -- -- -- We're wants to important his cabinet and I'm -- and all of -- where they have the right troops out of to have to towed to approve it or not but most of time it cut him some slack and she -- -- and during defendant -- they -- dollar.
Or will not -- OK -- the Condoleezza rise to -- -- but.
Yeah it was an act the president has some land that is back he's just after about big election win he's got Democrats are feeling emboldened.
If he makes this choice.
There should be no.
Real reason to believe that he won't have the votes to get Susan Rice through unless some -- you know stand up an objection that can happen in the senate.
Meeting greeting behind closed doors before that -- We're talking with the brought barrels.
6 PM eastern time on the news on the Fox News Channel.
Sometimes base and -- -- I've blades on just told Reuters travel and as the number one for sure the number one.
Cable under -- all of that -- -- deals and hold -- all rated bonds back.
-- the news -- -- you know one minute then.
It's been crazy leading after the election we've had these major stories -- kennel or drinking from a fire.
I used to believe -- -- close friends of Tim Russert.
God -- him.
A lot of great people a lot of off here on plan yeah Africa.
They used to tell me there's dissent during on -- whenever there is an election.
He would send -- even tell me based on an exit polls.
Who had won the election -- before.
Numeral for the networks couldn't -- so my question for you is at what point in the evening.
Did -- guys of their departure American -- some.
On the present have been reluctant.
Yeah I mean not really until Ohio was called do we know for sure but it did indications -- the early part of the night.
The fact that he was having trouble in Florida.
Romney having trouble in Florida and North Carolina we couldn't calls North Carolina forever and Virginia.
I mean that would.
321 strategy that you member Karl Rove talked about so many times.
The fact that we had to wait so long and the exit polls were saying it was so close in those states suggested it was going to be a long night for on the campaign.
My wife to launch a darted on a better colors.
But should Sunday at one point Karl Rove and -- you and meg an old god and some.
-- -- agreement won't -- over what state was zapped.
And Carl has started making some sound behind us with Chris -- and Jim Christie -- the best -- -- war.
We just turned around that what's the what's the rockets back there.
And he could we've made it made the call to sound so.
You know instead of hiding any at this contender.
You know that he was raising all of that on air we did OK let's go to the decision desk and say sure everybody pullback occurred financial why we made the call -- -- Adam but apparently has great -- -- summit commercials meg gonna -- and on all -- We're over the decision from office.
-- We've we've you know we've.
Practice that if it late in the night that there was -- state that we couldn't call that may be we would have to get the decision desk.
You know we -- maybe we can go down this hallway and do some got to walk.
We didn't know that after a call was made that we'd be going down to -- defend this call but actually does.
By disgruntled looking to look -- -- that.
Some or you're when you're descendants of board Gartman again.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- get a car road -- to a report on.
The reason I think is because.
All we get are getting confused with Dick Morris.
-- a -- of a -- -- You know Amazon September -- myself -- talking until they want progress got -- anchor of Fox News on.
And I think.
And I think there's -- certain amount of respect.
Absolutely -- is interior not to drag you in general.
Observations and accusations.
And way below way below where you would ordinarily be Britney leaving him in your private life.
And so on.
Prepared that Osama -- gonna move on from -- but but people listen watch -- they know.
A -- I -- Dick Morris and Karl -- competitors -- and we'll just move on from a total Arafat -- about this fiscal left that we're supposed to drive -- -- I just subsidies.
The metaphor which -- here well what does that mean a -- with.
-- to -- -- a big deal.
A combination of tax increases and spending cuts that have to happen before the end of the year.
And if they don't happen and there's not a deal then.
Everybody will see -- tac increased across the board.
And the bush era tax cuts will expire.
The CBO Congressional Budget Office says that's a big problem for the economy that's still pretty fragile.
So we're in this negotiations -- negotiation behind closed doors.
And the real question is you know what vote on the burned to the table Republicans are indicating -- -- -- You know we want to put tax revenue on the table so far they're talking about closing tax loopholes and capping deductions.
Not raising tax rates -- the White House wants to do and the other side the Democrats have not really talk about specifics on entitlement reform Medicare Medicaid -- security.
I think were really at the beginning.
And you know the croc -- stick.
How Washington traditionally has work they world.
Do some short term deal that -- -- two point 813 in the spring and it takes.
Some things around the edges and that may leave it to the next congress that was just elected -- to -- the big entitlement reform tax reform deal.
But something have to be done.
You know fairly significant before the end of the year.
-- my friends Sean Hannity and and a march -- -- apoplectic over the -- I mean Republicans are saying.
If you if you raised all the taxes that the White House wants it would it would raise something like 824 billion dollars over ten years.
And that's you know 82 billion made a year at about eight days of funding the US federal government.
So you know even if the -- -- got everything they wanted.
That -- -- alone won't do it so that the big driver.
Is the Medicare Medicaid and food security and what exactly.
The president and Democrats who -- -- them to do there is really the question.
Back to those forty -- lost in general this just just through diet.
Did some running have definitely actually got picked up my excess -- did this thing called eat right for your blood type.
You know -- work for many.
So was out of food program mentioned are sticking -- Yeah yeah not to happen on my phone and -- Check out what I would I can and cannot lead and it actually it's not been too bad but it's kind of -- lifestyle.
Change -- -- -- to -- O'Connell as sort of the Channing Tatum and Imus morning program album after which there was certainly beer out of there and her earnings I don't.
