Meantime get the president that is really come -- -- this not so much what did he.
No hole and went to be knowing but what details it is step -- -- and when did they pass them along.
Either way a damning defense for president once -- himself on being hands on.
Now -- he's essentially hands off.
To former bush insider and chairman of the council economic advisors -- uncovered on the dangers.
Of a president now playing the -- -- pop side.
We may get a.
Well I think certainly we've got enormous issues facing the country in these scandals distract us from the really important issues.
-- issues with the IRS are very very troubling.
But you know -- I was just when it -- where.
Where was this.
Aloofness or detach and some claimed emotionally that the president had.
With this management style that he is said what he never that he was very involved in the into the details of the department's.
And and could name the names and all the and then some things started -- -- and then and that was not the case not not saying that every president to be ends up very -- dealt with the job he's -- -- big and the governor has gotten so big.
But this is what happens when it gets this kind.
Would certainly true ended very large governments can be intrusive.
But one of the things the -- -- says to me is that we have a problem if our big tax agency is trying to discourage political competition.
-- the country needs right now are more ideas whether they come from a -- for the right.
To compete for the attention of the American people squelching those ideas is very bad as well as being an abuse of power.
-- this is more like a navy Barbara Walters type question with respect to Barbara Walters of course.
What is it it happens within agencies and then never yours -- but where there's a group think that says this is okay.
In other words we're getting mortars or sort of commands.
Letters from senators in congress inducted to -- -- -- beginning.
That we should look at these groups and no one figures or connects or bothers to connect to -- -- conservative groups.
And that it's not being very fair and balanced in this targeting in fact it's being.
Illegal and -- where.
Where is that what happens to that.
What was we don't know all the facts of what happened and who ordered why I know that there are many very high integrity individuals at the Internal Revenue Service says there are throughout government.
There are some people who evidently directed the targeting of specific groups and we'll have to wait to get those facts.
It's very very important again that the tax law be neutral.
We -- but didn't have caddies and we are back in their whistle blows there will say connected the dots and -- -- we certainly go after groups that might be abusing.
That is this tax exempt right elbow but.
Someone must say hey guys -- you notice these are role conservative groups he's Ralitsa Tea Party groups.
That it and -- not those whistle -- others might come forward for all I know deals in a range is an eight for them to do that.
But that's it we're gonna prevent the sort of stuff in the future for some and his decision back -- -- It this is -- I would certainly the case and again we want neutrality we once we have a tax launch -- applied equally to all people regardless of their political beliefs.
In fact the simpler the tax code we have the more efficient tax code we have.
The best chance we have of this kind of behavior exactly right about that it -- it's an unwieldy and an unwieldy mess and just general size leads to this sort of thing.
Glenn -- very good seeing you and -- pleasure.
