"They have a lot going for them. One thing they do not know how to do is they do not know how to deal with adversity. This regime that is currently running our country. They struggle with opposition.

Follow him on twitter at jim talent former member of the united states. Senate jim did you ever think it the day that the democratic party became socialist.

Sen. Ron Johnson Comments on Biden's High Spending Disaster
"Joe Biden said the other day at what they called a town hall meeting in one of his more coherent moments. That, uh, in effect, spending more money by spending more money, he will reduce inflation. Are you aware of any economic theory ever devised by mankind that holds that position, sir? No. And I know what his, uh, you know, economic advisor to Democratic President Lawrence Summers definitely would not agree with that, Martin. I'm wondering Facebook will pull that down sense of that bit of disinformation. We've got a president. That's a one man. This information gaffe machine himself, and, uh, it's amazing. He's actually going to Facebook, including with them, but take down other people's and disinformation. But here's what concerns me. Since he is the executive branch since years, the head of the Democrat Party, I don't think he's alone in believing this idiocy. I think when you look across the island, the United States Senate, you have a cabal of individuals who either agree with that or don't give a damn. They are prepared to spend trillions and trillions of dollars more. They think it's all free money. They think the they'll be able to do whatever they want to do no matter what. How do you deal with the How do you negotiate with people like this? You don't you have to. You have to resist them.

David Rice Atchison: President For A Day?
"Rice was a democratic senator from the state of missouri. He served in the senate for twelve years from eighteen. Forty three to eighteen fifty five. He had a reputation for being extremely pro. Slavery he owned. Slaves supported all of the slave state issues in the run up to the civil war and when the war finally commenced he served in the confederate army as a brigadier general commanding missouri troops. So he's not the finest of people to sit in the upper chamber of congress. Quite frankly if it wasn't for the events that i'll be discussing this episode david. Rice atchison would probably be mostly forgotten to history i. I came across his name years ago and children's book of fun facts which said that he was the president of the united states for one day. This fact has been repeated on and off for over one hundred and fifty years in fact the words president of the united states for one day are on his tombstone in missouri as sort of a testament to his greatest achievement. So is this true. Was david rice. Atchison really the president of the united states for a single day to answer the question. We need to understand exactly what happened in the election of eighteen. Forty eight week party. Candidate zachary taylor comfortably. Defeated democrat lewis. Cass and free soil candidate. Martin van buren incoming president. James polka made a pledge to seek a single term in office and he honored that pledge by not. Running taylor was a career military man who had never expressed any political opinions prior to the election. And in fact he had never voted. He had a great deal of success as a general during the mexican american war which led to his popularity in calls for him to run for president. He wasn't fact recruited by both the whigs and the democrats. The two major political parties at the time to seek office prior to the passage of the twentieth amendment to the constitution the president and all members of congress would take office at noon on march fourth. This lengthy lame duck period made more sense when everyone had to travel by horseback. And that's why was eventually changed. Nonetheless march fourth was the date everyone took office in eighteen forty nine march fourth landed on a sunday. Zachary taylor being a devout man. Didn't want to have his inauguration ceremony. Take place on the sabbath so he postponed one day until monday. March fifth is vice. President millard fillmore also delayed his oath of office until march fifth according to the law at the time which was the presidential succession act of seventeen ninety to the next person in line to the presidency after the vice president was the president pro. Temporary of the united states senate. The vice president is technically the president of the senate. The president pro temporary is the person who presides over the senate when the vice president is not present. The president temporary was david rice. Atchison at the time the position was actually a competitive election today. The president pro temporary is just the senior ranking member of the majority party in the senate. So the argument is that because neither zachary taylor nor millard fillmore didn't take the oath of office on march fourth and waited until march fifth that they weren't president from noon on march fourth until noon on march fifth. That means that the next in line would have been the president pro. Temporary of the senate david rice. So is this true and does this argument. Hold water. The answer is pretty clear in the answer is no and there are a whole bunch of reasons. Why this is the case. I while the constitution does stipulate that the president and the vice president must take the oath of office it only says quote before he enters upon the execution of his office unquote. This is legal hair-splitting but it means before president can do anything presidential e- sign a law. Appoint officials signed a treaty etc. They must i take the oath of office however they can still be the president before taking the oath to illustrate the point. President kennedy was shot at twelve thirty pm on november. Twenty second nineteen sixty three. He was declared dead at one thirty three. Pm and lyndon johnson took the oath of office on air force one at two thirty eight pm. The moment president kennedy was dead. Or at least claire dead. Lyndon johnson became the president in the same way that someone becomes a king the moment the old king dead even if they haven't been coronated. The oath of office is just a way to legally unlock the powers of the presidency after becoming president. As i said this is legal hair-splitting and for all practical purposes it doesn't really matter but for the twenty four hour period before the oath of office zachary. Taylor was the president. If there was an emergency you could have quickly taken the oath of office in private and without a public ceremony and dealt with the crisis as president. The second argument as to why atkinson was never president is that he never took the oath of office. Either if taylor is in president. Because he didn't take the oath of office than atkinson also can't be president by the same logic. The third argument is that he officially wasn't the president pro. Tempore e of the senate. He was the president pro temporary during the previous session of congress. His term expired on march fourth at noon. Just like the presidential term. Did he needed to be reelected again. On march fifth which he was moreover. This wasn't the first time that this had happened in eighteen. Twenty one james monroe delay taking the oath by a day for the exact same reason yet known assumes that someone else was president for a day at johnson himself never claimed to be president at the time. No one seriously thought he was the president. And there's nothing in the congressional record to indicate that he was there are no constitutional scholars presidential historians or even atkinson's owned biographer. Who thinks that he was actually president at best. If you applied a very strict rule to the taking of the oath to become president then you could maybe say that there was a one day interregnum where there was no president but it doesn't follow that atkinson was president.

carbon footprint of the new green deal and every single penny dime that they can muster for any pork barrel project they want congressman Steve Scalise is the Republican whip Louisiana's first district understand Louisiana's cases of covert nineteen are are increasing dramatically I'm sorry to hear that congressmen and I'm I'm wish the best for everybody down there with it we're going to get through this let's talk about the aid package and pelo sees dream last our earlier today indicating okay she's finally going to give up on this stuff is that for sure we'll show on it it's I think first of all the sunlight is always the best disinfectant and the fact that people are talking about this in exposing just how disgraceful it is what speaker policy did I mean all the talks were going in a very positive way for over a week and a very bipartisan way Republicans the Democrats putting a bill together and then set Sunday Nancy Pelosi flies in from San Francisco it literally blows the whole thing up with this crazy stuff look I mean I've been on the phone all day like so many of my colleagues for last few days with small businesses medium size businesses large businesses household names that are facing some of the toughest decisions you can imagine laying off their workforce but every single day they're making these decisions and they're saying wait a minute if Congress is going to throw me a lifeline I can hold off on laying people off in there said yesterday they were saying that and yet Nancy Pelosi comes in and her allies play in this dangerous game of chicken with our economy Sean make a mistake Nancy Pelosi what she's doing is taking a wrecking ball to main street America right now because decisions are being made whether or not they're gonna laid people off and they don't want to do it but they also are looking to Congress and I think it's gonna I think cool heads are going to prevail but how many days did we lose at least two days have been lost with this I mean not one call I've been on Sean that people said Hey can you pass the green new deal or can you have mandatory your collective bargaining or can you make sure illegals get relief checks that's all employees bill federalizing elections to make mandatory same day voter registration what does that have to do with corona virus for god's sake put all of these radical ideas on the side you'll debated all in November in the presidential election but today we gotta save lives we gotta save businesses that are making some of the toughest decisions they've made since they started up in these are people in your neighborhood restaurants that you want to come back your local dry cleaner all up to large corporations in the world and stopped you know that that used all this back and forth about whether big corporations are evil again they can have that debate November today we've got to come back together like everybody was doing for over a week Hey get this bill passed to help throw a lifeline to families so that we can then have an economy to come back to and hopefully a few weeks the president talked about maybe Easter where we can finally open things back up again you wanna have something you can go back to a job to go back to and that won't be the case of policy keeps playing this game she got to drop it today let's get this bill done and unless it let's get people back to work I like with the president saying too I mean the the Q. or for this cannot be worse than the problem itself and I'm telling you everybody I talked to once the country to as quickly as expeditiously as possible people want to work Americans instinctively want to work the this economy was not built for people to just get checked side never ending checks from the government and then to the credit of most people they don't want that now there are people through no fault of their own that have are up I have been laid off lost their jobs lost their income small businesses that have had to shut their doors and big industries like the cruise line industry in the airline industry etcetera and we have to help them we definitely I like your idea and that is okay if you're being furloughed for a period of time this period with that we go through it will give the aid to the business has let them continue to pay their employees keep their benefits in place and then as soon as we can get back to work let's get back to work yeah I'm showing you know what else is in this bill this is something we did after hurricane Katrina you add people up or shut down program on the banks were given flexibility to go to the customers and say look you've got your home loan but you don't have a job we're gonna push your note back for three months so let's say your your last no payment is in ten years it'll be ten years and three months but for three months we're gonna give you freedom same thing for small businesses we know you have no cash flow and hopefully in a few weeks you're gonna be back up and running but for the next week or the week after that you don't have to worry about these no payments to the bank should have the flexibility we put that in this bill that's something that's going to benefit everybody Republican democratic don't matter what the party is but to throw parties and ideas that have absolutely nothing to do with it I mean solar panels on airplanes I mean what are they talking about carbon emissions forgive me we gotta keep the airline industry afloat and by the way it's not a bailout in this bill it's a loan that they would have to pay back and it gives them a lifeline and so why wouldn't we want to do that Republicans or Democrats coming together again I think you'll see it I think we're gonna get to that but some people going to be a wreck to sit on his arms is this some of this money is going to be direct assistance for displaced workers firm Sean it's Alton you can't do permanent policy and this and that I think both sides been really good about like a lot of things I'd like to see you know get rid of Dodd Frank today's not the day to have that debate this bill I want to place a congressman I want I want to clarify one thing the people the for example workers through no fault of their own they can't work so don't these are not loans for them we're we're going to give them the bridge till they get back to work correct for individuals there there will be cash assistance to them and again make the normal verification you shouldn't be given at that illegals and all that kind of stuff that they came there to try to play but yeah help families out while they're not getting any income while they don't have a job help those small businesses and again the banks even would have flexibility to say we're not gonna make you make your house payment or your your business loan payment for the next few months while you get back on your feet but we want you to get back on your feet we want to have something for people to come back to and every day that we delay right now is thousands of lost jobs thousands of layoffs that will be made if this doesn't get done quickly I think that's the most important thing and and every day I mean it's been a week now and I know you passed the two other bills that's all good and well I mean what why do they think that this is time for student debt forgiveness and the new green deal and carbon emissions and the Kennedy center for the performing arts and and and bailing out the postal office which doesn't need a bail out right now and and everything else in between I'm like watching this and saying wow you is it really this dysfunctional as the party swung the Democratic Party swung that far radical left that they're willing to betray American workers small businesses and and even our big corporations at a time they are most needed clearly there's an element of their their winning up in the in in the house that that have that attitude I think it's backfiring on him right now Sean I mean people all across the country going wait what happened everybody was working together the countries come together and then the speaker literally flies in from San Francisco on the whole thing turns around we're talking about the socialist agenda on a bill that's supposed to be about saving American workers and the small businesses and medium and large sized businesses that make our country the world that's literally hanging on by a thread stop playing the games get this done but in the meantime there caused major damage just in the last two days time to end it and then let's get back to work get this done there's gonna be a time for these bigger fights about the Senate is expected vote maybe as early as tonight do we know for sure I think it's still possible Sean I do see court had starting to prevail and I think the pressure from people all across the country what do you do it again whether you're Republican or Democrat independent doesn't matter I think people look and go on another off go to work for the American people and let's get this done let's get our economy back up in a few weeks as the president said president trump's been fraught priding great leadership working with governors working with everybody to get through this yeah we don't need a couple of people that want to come and play their partisan games to blow it all up what else do you think you see in the bill that is going to be particularly helpful to prepare us posted virus and and look we look at the if the patterns hold meaning China and South Korea now we are beginning to see signs that Italy is now beginning their their slow descent than leveling off which will hopefully then be followed like these other countries with a dramatic drop off a new cases and deaths we still are not at that point yet because it literally it's sort of like goes around we're not at the point where we can say okay we're beyond that of the president talked about a goal of Easter Sunday opening up the country again your thoughts well I like the fact that the president's showing that that we are going to get through this and it's not gonna be March it's going to be weeks and if people are people are taken smarter precautions already social distancing washing their hands what we are active flu season this year were over twenty five thousand people in America died this year from the flu and yet people probably weren't taking the kind of precautions they could to protect themselves against that I see you're seeing you're seeing a higher level there but in terms of the bill Shawn for for businesses especially look I mean you're working you're at home right now you want to be able to go back to your job by and large you know when the economy was great your get a

And I may have to eat this. We are. We don't think the wall is a good technology to do the objective. This is a substantive argument.

We were prepared to vote for that. How for that Bill? But the Republicans wanted to shut down the government we need to open up government. And then go she ate not the other way around because we're prepared to negotiate and we're prepared to have the homeland security Bill approved for short term.

Republican from Utah parties twenty twelve nominee for president former governor of Massachusetts and savior of the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. I mean that in actual truth. He that that Olympics was a disaster falling apart he came in. And actually pulled it together. I give him a ton of credit for that. And I did when I did not vote for him in the two thousand twelve campaign. I just I did not think that he was the best choice to be all where president that year. I did not. And I have some respect for Mitt Romney as very successful businessman. He seems like a very rational person he doesn't seem very in touch with the average American and that's fine. Not you don't not everybody is. And he's not always the best. But as far as he's a Republican from Utah and his principles I have respect for that. And again, I have respect for the successes. He has had in his career in life. And I know he was born with money. And that's fine. Some people born with money completely fail. He has not.

"If Democrats now that they have power in states don't make moves immediately to shore up the Voting Rights Act too short voting rights because Republicans have shown how they react to demographic disaster. They suppress those votes they go after those voters and try to make it hard for them to vote. So Democrats who have now gotten back a lot of states need to start protecting voting rights in those states. And Niro when you look at the results of the United States Senate, the Republicans holding on a not very impressively but holding on and that's because Democrats had a more than double the number of Senate seats to defend than Republicans. Did that? Gets reversed two years from now and Republicans will have almost double the number of seats to defend than than Democrats will. And so Democrats will have that massive statistical advantage just going into it. And if you're Mitch McConnell, and you watch what happens to the house representatives. You have to have a very strong fear that the United States Senate is next. I mean, I have to say the map in two years is much better. It's almost night and day. And really, I think it is interesting to look at to look at what's happening in the states that that Republicans will be in just taking example, Colorado, Colorado flipped and important house seat. But the entire state almost the entire state wide races went democratic they they have really become a blue state and Cory Gardner has been hook line and sinker with Donald Trump. Susan Collins, his really just did everything she could to help Cavanaugh in the end. You know, she she faces a very changed map. Not only did a democrat. The governor's race Democrats made real gains in may. And it seems you know, there's a lot of change at the congressional level. So I would say what's fascinating about this is looking under the cover. There's been so many transformations the Iowa delegation went from three Republicans one democrat to three Democrats one Republican at the house level. They're really big changes across the country in a way that should make Republicans in the Senate and in the White House, deeply skeptical. But let me just say one word, which is joy is absolutely right. When Republicans come into power, they think about ways to suppress vote. It's critical the Democrats come into power and expand the vote joy Reid. Ted Jared Bernstein. Thank you all for starting us off tonight. Really appreciate it.

Sickening is the word I kept hearing from the people who oppose Brett Kavanagh's confirmation, which is according to polls a much larger group of people, then supporters of Brett Kavanagh's confirmation.

Express will of the people not today, and that adds something profoundly disturbing to these sickening feeling that opponents of the cabin on nomination have tonight, there is an unfortunate truth at the base of what most people are feeling tonight. And that truth is that the Senate is not a democratic institution. That is the sickening core of what we feel deep down. When we watched the Senate work, the Senate destroys the American illusion of democracy as it was designed to do. We are allowed to ignore that uncomfortable truth most of the time, but not now the founders deliberately created an anti democratic institution and called it the United States Senate that was not the founders only anti-democratic design. The founders did not believe in democracy. They experimented with it. They did not allow. Most people to voters, their experiment in democracy was to only allow voting among men, white men that group of white Republican men you saw sitting in the Senate Judiciary committee was the founding fathers idea of what democracy was supposed to look like. That's what senators were supposed to look like. And that's what voters were supposed to look like..
"united states senate" Discussed on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams
"And we've seen for thirty plus years cycle of revenge and retribution in our judicial nominations that came to this moment today. And I think about kids who you would admonish playing with matches and for purposes of the of the analogy, United States senators or the kids today, the kids playing with matches literally burn the house down and so enormous damage was done to the institution of the supreme court today to the process to the United States Senate. I think he American people look at this and they're shocked by it to see the degeneracy and our politics to see the cost, the terrible cost of. Of partisanship in our institutions. Look, I thought that doctor Ford was very credible, and I think that Brett Cavanaugh and it pains me to say it has a credibility problem. We have a, we have in politics. We often say that the outcome was determined by the last big thing that happened as opposed to the first thing that happened and we, we know this. This is the first thing at the beginning of the process that brick Cavanaugh said he said, Mr President. Thank you throughout this process. I've witnessed firsthand your appreciation for the vital role of the American judiciary. No president has ever consulted more widely or talked with more people for more backgrounds to seek input about a supreme court nomination. Of course, that is self evidently not true. He made an untruthful statement and a political statement with his first utterance as a new nominee for the court. Now. All the rage and the anger that we saw from him today I think is appropriate for somebody who feels that they are falsely accused. But as you go through this, it makes no sense why someone who is falsely accused with not want to instigate a reopening of the f. b. i. background investigation for the purposes of explicatives him from the situation. The answers on drinking. We're not credible and Leslie, and I say, this is somebody who worked with Brett Cavin on the in the Bush White House and has no ill will towards Brad Kavanagh liked Brad Kavanagh. But in his statement, though he may be aggrieved it through his perspective justly aggrieved. It was a declaration of partisan war upon the left upon the Clintons Allegheny. Nations of conspiracy a declaration of war against the Democratic Party. How can a supreme court Justice function in a lifetime appointment that partisan that convicted that one half of the country or his political enemies? How will he Judah Kate cases fairly. If you just look at the plane intent behind the words he spoke, we saw tremendous disrespect for senators like Amy klobuchar char. We saw profound anger, and I think that anger, even though he may view it as justified is inherently disqualifying for someone who's going to have a lifetime appointment and then and then lastly, he's, he's, he's in his early fifties. He could credibly serve on the supreme court to let's say, two thousand and fifty eight. He could be up there for forty years. There's and for every second that he's up there, fair or not. It will raise a question about the legitimacy of the court. We already have that with Clarence Thomas. I'm not sure that we need to have another compromise Justice who's in his early fifty serving a lifetime tenure with that cloud hanging over him. Trump is a symptom of the problems in the country, not a cause. And the reason we have President Trump is because the collapse of trust in very nearly every institution in the country. And what we saw today was another chapter in the erosion of public trust and for good reason and our most vital institutions, I think this was a tragic day for the country. It's man for the two individuals. We saw testifying then a momentous day. All of our guests have agreed to stay with us. We have to fit in a break. Obviously our discussion, a special one at that continues. Right after this..

"Without ever doing a shred of useful work. But here he is criticizing the United States. This is the United States Senate. I can't know now it's something we just stalled little children. We go bomb houses and buses of children that we give tax breaks to bite us, but we don't do sturdy. No. Okay. So that that's what we do in America. We starve little children by the way, America's responsible for bringing more people out of starvation than any force in human history. Any force in human history worldwide. Poverty has been halved since nineteen eighty s because the power of the American economy and free markets that he opposes by the way and it we always bomb children, you know, like when we actually got rid of Saddam Hussein or when we actually bombed Assad because he's been murdering children or when we ended World War Two or when we ended the communist regime in Russia. Now, all of those things really about America being a terrible, terrible, horrible place. That's all we are. All America is a place that does terrible things. This is why they're this conflict divisions between left and right. I'm not sure this bridgeable if you actually believe Howard's ins version of history. America needs to be replaced as an entity and needs to be completely torn down and built back up from the roots by idiots. Like Bernie Sanders. That's what we absolutely need because Bundy found the says, America's a terrible place, terrible terrible place where he grew up to, again, wealth and privilege. And again by any measure by any measure, the dude lives, he's got a lake house come on and we're, and we're supposed to believe that that America's terrible, awful, awful place. He's very upset though that he can't use dirty words on the Senate floor. First of all, I think that we should be able to use dirty words on the Senate floor because I'd like to see who exactly like this. This kind of veneer of civility in the Senate is bunch of nonsense. Anyway, I'd like to see how these folks used already words because I think that Bernie Sanders cursing would be so much more entertaining than Bernie Sanders. Not cursing. I just wanna see, Bernie Sanders us like all George carlin's words. I think it would be very, amusing are on the meat is just throw. Just incredible. But Bernie's again, there's a theory on the left that every bad that happens uniquely American in every good that happens is unique is universal to humanity. So people rising from poverty human rights, individual rights. These are these are outgrowths of universal visions of humanity, but war famine s because of America you have to be a full-fledged idiot to believe this, his speaking of full-fledged idiots, there's a piece I have two comments on this because it's so absurd. There's a piece that has been put forth by some woman named. I think it's Becca, Lou Rebecca Lewis, Rebecca Lewis, and it's a piece over data society dot net, which I've never heard of before, but it's getting some planned line and it says, alternative influence broadcasting the reactionary right on YouTube new data and society report by researcher. Rebecca Lewis presents data from approximately sixty five political influencers across Eighty-one channels. So identified the alternative influence network in alternative media system that adopts techniques, brand influencers to build audience and sell them. Article ideology. The idea behind the study is that YouTube encourages people to go to the alright via things like my show. How do they make this case the way they make this case that they say, well, Shapiro ones hosted Jordan Peterson, Jordan Peterson was one on Ruben. Dave. Rubin once had Stephen Mulinuu on stiff Sophon Malu once was on with Richard Spencer, therefore, Ben Shapiro and Richard Spencer are linked, can we are now playing six degrees of Kevin bacon..
"united states senate" Discussed on MSNBC Morning Joe
"Being spent in sixty eight countries and you look at the United States, boy, this our opportunity. Let's drive it to the hilt. We have an opportunity loss course cost in what is happening now and nobody's reckoning that in Washington, the members of the United States Senate, this is what the Senate was defined for this moment. And it is a moment that calls on them to do things that are necessary to stop gap. What Donald Trump is either not doing not capable of doing and their whole bunch of things I think, but the biggest single opportunity we have right now, I think is twenty eight teen. We can have a course correction in our own democracy that actually revitalizes our democracy and again, right about that. And in the book, I mean, go go back to nineteen seventy-one. So to seventy one is when I protest the war, Richard Nixon was very popular. Then he carried forty nine states in seventy two one year later he was gone. Why? Because people did their jobs institutions that were there stood up and resist it. When I look at this memo that when the New York Times says senior, they mean senior and they would not have published this because they know the consequences. If they didn't have confidence, they know who it is and. I think we have to therefore understand the implications of of of of what this person has done. Would I prefer others here would that it were public short, but it doesn't diminish the consequence. What oughta be secretary, Kerry the message of Democrats twenty eighteen. You've seen some i-on Presley winning in Massachusetts, for example, knocking off work for fifteen years. Is that right? At great late? Knock off a twenty year incumbent there. What? What is the my notes district by district, but what's the message if it's not just anti-donald Trump what is the democrat message? What cuts through this message? Absolutely shouldn't be just adult. Everybody understands us. We're wasting too much time on the tweets and on the daily beloved him. Frankly, we've gotta talk about America's agenda. We have to offer a better way of meeting the needs of the American people. Citizens on the right citizens on the left are equally angry at their lot in life. Because their needs are not being that. And when you have fifty two percent of America's income going to one percent of Americans, you haven't unsustainable, political quesion. Everybody in America knows this. And the reason you went from Gingrich revolution to party to freedom caucus to Donald Trump and hostile takeover of the Republican party was frustration with the lack of adequate response. So we have in two months, a referendum on Donald Trump on all of this, but it won't work if we're not offering America way to show the institutions can work how they work. And again, I come back to the book. I think I show in the book again and again, how the the Senate could work my what it was like when I came there in the nineteen eighties when it was functioning and we were able to get things done, we balanced the budget, the nineteen ninety s folks. And here we are with a completely dysfunctional Washington that also is living in a. Kind of insidious corruption that comes from the money in American politics and the unwillingness of people to perform their constitutional responsibility. Let's talk about what happens when you disagree with the executive when you disagree with the president states, and let's talk about Syria, and you gave a speech in the summer to three summers ago about the need to take on Syria, the red line, the whole thing and everything like that. That evening the day that you gave the speech, the president United States walks around the south one with Denis McDonough chief of staff, and they changed the direction that you would taking. What happens internally when you disagree with the decision made by the president? Well, Michael, I think it depends on what the consequence of the decision is on occasion you may feel you have to reside in this IRAs Vance did when the decision was made in desert one, when they tried to make a rescue in the hostages and failed different moments, different consequences in this. Case, it wasn't a reversal of the direction we were going. It was a decision by the president to try to get congress to participate in it..
