Just Politico out of Peter King talking about this pledge -- not a raising taxes -- -- sign out and some other.
Congress and it doesn't apply now what I saw where easily doesn't.
-- I just I can't believe that that we're back at the same place that it the last time we are at this place.
Where Republicans thought it was okay to just renege on their first principles that hiking up taxes is invariably going to be a bad idea was back in 1990 tail.
With George Herbert Walker Bush okay he did it and it a man of good good well and he wants to believe immediately thought all these tax.
Hikes would then be accompanied by spending cots well as we know -- spending -- didn't really ever com.
And George Bush are lost the presidency and then we had two terms of Bill Clinton -- Peter -- I like very much I think it's a really good guy and I think he's done great work and a lot of issues -- foreign policy issues but.
I mean come on guys -- -- you start negotiations by just.
Giving up stuff preemptively -- like unilateral disarmament -- even started the talks I don't get that.
Targeting -- it.
Our alarm -- anger marinate artists a one Abrams did you -- as -- little -- -- original Oscar -- Clark.
Retirement as Supreme Court project almost a -- movements.
Imus Imus by the way I have a question that you guys are talking about Grover earlier about this main.
-- mall attorney.
Grow over the isn't -- SES is C on aisle he's at all that elegant Grover Norquist wants to grow the guy who does attacks -- and I mean that now he's persona non -- right so so this guy Grover most people and I don't know yes but.
Two years after Republicans and Democrats have done virtually nothing to avert this current fiscal mess that -- I don't Republicans have tried to have meetings the president the president just blow it -- and decided to you know -- karaoke with Al Green and all the stuff he -- it liked campaign but they didn't do it and and -- now -- be over it burns of of again another crisis.
And -- and also -- well the real problem.
Is this pledged.
That people signed with this guy who's not he's not elected any bank he just runs its organization.
That's that's idea that's his principal and he -- still what I gotta say I -- a lot more credit to someone like.
Grover Norquist for sticking by what he he believes on this issue but I do to Republicans or Democrats -- just blow off promises and expect the American people -- -- -- I mean.
It's Grover Norquist just one guy running an organization.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well I -- I I think that.
Reform is only gonna content when and entitlements -- reform that means that -- Medicare Social Security.
And that's only happen if the Republicans smartly used the leverage which say they do happen I saw the house representatives that -- them on to seats.
I can't forget that they lost about disease that is still the majority.
Gotta use the levers they have -- we still have a house that still plays a vital role in this process and Republicans going and this negotiation.
Have to say okay we wanna we want jobs number I want and any jobs this country number two we need this tax -- -- -- reform.
Of these entitlements we need this economy start coming.
It's not gonna start -- by jacking up tax rates because if they do that.
2014 Republicans will lose the house of represent that's my prediction -- will lose it and they'll lose it bad OK and then the Democrats are gonna have controlled the White House.
Both houses of the congress and then any tax on any spending.
-- that they agreed to.
You think they're gonna abide by -- and 2014 now -- they're Republicans have to do say look let's trigger a -- -- simplified as tax code.
We can until delete and eliminate somebody's loopholes is going to be painful for a lot of -- people are upper income earners for shore.
And then doubled -- the Florida needs needs and verifiable entitlement reform now not six months from now but now.
And then what that certainty in place we'll start seeing some movement.
I think in the economy but just doesn't Willy Nilly melting -- they're all like having a bad case of the papers there quite good yeah hitting a solo.
Give a tax increases my got we have a chronic case of of whiplash on Capitol Hill whether its on taxes.
For Republicans or now it's Susan Rice I mean by -- -- is Susan Rice is gonna.
Q guys going to be the kick Joseph Biden the vice presidential mansion should be nice and another ultimatum.
And -- gonna be spoon and by the end of the day it's -- different you know.
-- -- -- Zoo it's Allah -- may not practically -- and I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't some -- buyout moment at the end of the day.
We had fruitful talks and we look all -- would have been with Susan -- ridiculous.
Doesn't it what it Washington.
