We've been talking about the abuse of power across Washington all morning from the IRS to the EPA to FEMA and now.
We've got a Democrat he to respond to this joining us this Friday morning big smile.
-- -- -- -- Along with Monica Crowley who is no doubt either way -- gentlemen Monica is with us for the entire -- all right let's get to you bush originally.
I'm happy to answer that charge whatever charge anyone a -- -- and that was very simple my premise is this that the government that the administration.
Used the levers of power the government bureaucracy throughout the election campaign to -- the election the EPA did it.
Does that with withholding of that disaster -- the IRS did it.
The it Justice Department didn't.
It's the election was skewed by this one -- calling the abuse of government power and you -- I say that's crazy and you can't concede that the Democrats won this election parents where he just he can't you can't -- -- I'm saying that there was a tilt.
That settled because there wasn't sales if you post read your Obama are not neutral it was not neutral the conservative vote was suppressed you could say.
I I don't know under what circumstances you think they were suppressed if I -- imitate the -- humans if you intimidate supporters of conservative courses using -- IRS if you deny it.

You have an ability to raise money at things like that but I I would go a step further and as -- and say.

Heard that perhaps RS is being used as a weapon.
By the White House to intimidate its -- And -- at the American public knew that no al-Qaeda was not defeated and we let our guard down and an ambassador was murdered.
In the White House tried to covered up talking about a flimsy video on the Internet you don't think that would have swayed some independent vote.
I'll I'll play two things on what -- first of honestly first and foremost in Gaza was talked about September 11 up to the day of the election and it's hidden seemed until the vote -- secondly -- answer what answer to show.
If you look at recent polling after -- 447 coverage of what's been going on Obama's numbers are actually up.
So it seems to me and it and that's independent -- so it seems to me that despite the fact there's been focus on this by the media and rightly so.
-- actually hasn't affected bill let electorates perceptions president and I think you guys can't stand the fact that he won the selection parents where you need to come up with any excuse -- To invalidate the fact that more than -- but it would.

Now suddenly we're shocked somehow that there's gambling in -- -- blank at that perhaps the full force of the US government was used by this administration.
Conservative activity to suppress money coming in to these groups.
To go after his enemies here's here's here's a shocked I didn't say here's the difference when I'm shocked about it the fact that back in 2004 I had -- election night.
George Bush won reelection and I wasn't happy about it not once that I go on the station or anywhere else.
And say that's because George Bush didn't make it -- case he -- know -- If you don't like simply doesn't have a good designer Monica you need to obviously it is the president and you can Manny -- 71 of the -- that's how did you know we don't many Latin -- evidence is the only.
