In the polls.
-- is big job being given the bigs and -- political fallout have money for Democrats falling short.
-- Melissa Francis Noel make four and -- -- Melissa would either.
I think that every time we see a scandal like this I -- -- say these are the folks that you put in charge your health care and how do you feel about.
I mean that's that -- that -- that is really terrifying and I used to say have you been to the DMV lately.
Have you seen what's going on in the post office why would you put these people on charger health -- -- now we have an exam exact example.
This Sara hall Ingram who was in charge of the office that decided on the tax exempt status.
She is now in charge of the IRS's affordable care -- mean if that doesn't terrify you and make you run screaming from the government.
I don't know what will.
What holes those are -- -- -- towards the governments to this program now so.
And -- negative -- like it was sort of -- you know.
No well what do you make of this now because up until now the president's had the upper hand a lot of things are now but many Republicans are seizing on this.
As a vulnerability for the Democrats going into the -- fourteen midterm elections furthermore big vulnerability particularly when it comes at a -- for Hillary Clinton.
Sure -- money bet for the democratic nomination maybe not so sure it played this out Moneyline.
Good god this has been a horrible period for the Democratic Party and first of all Obama is the brand for the Democratic Party.
And everything from the eight needed the IRS too big Ghazi -- going back to fast and furious every thing is hitting the hand.
And it can't help but damage the brand and number one which in turn.
Help the Republican Party.
Build their brain and it it it's kind of like this so yes mail that's going to help us that's gonna help the GOP.
Because know what's gonna wanna give to this current administration any of the 2014 races.
It's gonna affect main flight going in a 2014 with the where I am the prior race.
Senator Mark Pryor it's going to affect some of these gubernatorial races all around the United States.
The hill three the Hillary big rock rock train that's going to probably come to a screeching halt because what she -- not pick Kevin is what else so it's going to dry up.
A little bit of potential money so far and -- I think we're gonna find out.
Whether the Democratic Party Hillary Clinton everybody in the whole shebang has got what I call a -- -- brand.
Let's see if maybe some things can be thrown their way.
And and not stick on but I think think I think it's gonna stay well let's as the -- course is you raise money for his Republicans -- yeah history proves that a lot of this fixation could be short wide -- So play this out what do you think it admitted it happens would be very scandals in these various hearings you've heard the Warner did analogies and everything else right how do you think this accident.
Well I think -- Republicans have to watch -- for overreach here you know we signed in the Monica Lewinsky had a lot of probes going on and then.
The house Republicans and -- -- losing two seats in 1998 Republicans have telling us listen we learned our lessons from that.
And I agree with Melissa dawn on the obamacare angle is that what that's what Democrats are very nervous about the message the bulk of obamacare.
Implement it on January 1.
And and you have this trust in government that's just one.
One agency like the GSA scandal and now you have we have State Department you've got the Justice Department member of congress tell me that the -- -- When after the eight.
What was they didn't follow the proper procedure so and and of course you have this ongoing IRS scandal so this is this is something that the Democrats are very nervous about I also think it could hurt immigration because remember.
The department of homeland security's going to be a lot more power if immigration reform is signed into law.
That's a very good morals front of that on the policy at its best to appointed about whether it's Stein is the administration's agenda at least sort -- and short -- it -- -- right so.
If if your pushing for expansion of health care you'll still get it I guess but it's not gonna happen rapidly and maybe not pull -- the way you wanted to -- with the RS.
You would think so and I think that the biggest scandal this week might have been made peace scandal because you saw the press really transformed.
You know from these lap dogs to all of a sudden their toes were the ones that had been stepped on and they're reaching out to bite.
And hardly had that -- they can -- well you know why I always think once alarming was alone.
You I mean they are buried very hostile and as you see.
You know the White House continue to stonewalling continue to -- you know they -- we would like to.
Know more about this investigation and in the White House just continues to stone on -- I don't know I don't know if they relax -- quite the same rate we would hope not unit that you know could change things going forward.
You know I know it's funny -- forty years ago when we had the first Watergate hearing kick off deserted -- Are one of the things that stood out in my mind at the press at the time but looking back -- it was just let us.
You would imagine not important right -- or not -- -- -- against.
But -- -- -- dismissed the hearings and they don't know where and that they certainly wouldn't be a problem for Richard Nixon and embarrassment the slowdown.
But then what happens in hearings as you have to hear a lot of folks.
And they sometimes give conflicting testimony and then but sometimes a bombshell was dropped like -- the president has a taping system that.
That was and I know -- different things to happen now but since there are so many scandals.
Going on concurrently now do you think the more this drags on the more surprises.
We'll -- I thanks so I think that we're gonna say -- -- thank -- that we have heard the fat lady things -- to speak I think that there is so much more going on it when you have people joking.
Should -- watch the that miniseries it.
Scandal our show just turn on the news and seeing you know what's coming down the pipes next with the White House.
You know from the money point of view this is gonna do nothing but help build the coffers.
Of any Republican running because all -- have to do is use the current.
Press on what's out there are so I know that your other -- is that something you know Republicans and need to be far reaching.
Yeah I think that we media -- train now because now when you take advantage people -- so disgusted.
Special with the IRS.
And whenever you hear IRS.
Everybody you know everybody pretty much paying taxes some but -- but everybody that you know I was not -- We -- it ain't about nothing -- -- -- -- -- -- we do it we went and what we hear about abuses.
Boy it really gets everywhere and incredibly angry.
You know Bob Adams and but but but here's what I I -- -- -- -- it could -- -- -- -- -- If you're the president you've got an agenda.
Not only to expand health care to get these exchanges going by year's end of senator.
I can imagine this slows a lot of that down but it does it damage you in budget -- -- does it make it next of possible.
To get further revenue increases or or or is is that just a disconnect we assume that's the case.
But there's always gonna have to be give and take in these negotiations and that doesn't change.
I think it does hurt the president because his poll numbers are gonna take a hit from all these scandals they are gonna linger they have to play defense for.
Both for the next several weeks and months I think there's more -- a little bit more about IRS I think diet there's a lot more information -- come out on.
And -- IRS and and senator Max Baucus said that the finance committee chairman.
It is indicating there's more -- that story so I do think it hurts is standing that doesn't mean it gives Republicans the upper hand.
The president is hurt by this and and as we go into the fall -- these probes are still going to be ongoing I think at least a couple of them.
It could hurt him in the fiscal fight.
You know most of their a lot of people look at the markets and say part of what is going on is there rejoicing that -- to delay raises big spending agenda today.
Yeah received his sister's Ben Bernanke -- that's right you be the last surviving about that's right it's it's always -- -- -- market at the end of the day it's all about Ben Bernanke right now and boy when he heads for the exit -- your helmet on.
It's gonna really means something it's going to be something assuming that's health -- written on odd guys I want to thank you all meanwhile.
