1:00 pm
peanut butter jar? well, no, it's not the one i wanted but i'll give it a look. i'll see that. ♪ [ applause ] that is is a adorable. that is adorable. no,ly not let you distract me. all right. there must be revenue increases in this compromise because i was told just how crucial that was to this negotiation by -- i don't know let's call him an unnamed senior white house official. >> we can't just close our deficit with spending cuts alone what we've said is as part of a broader package we should have revenues. >> revenues should come from the people who can most afford it. >> serious cuts balanced by new revenues. >> if you don't have revenues, it means you are putting more of a burden on the people who can least afford it. >> thank you. it's that kind of emphatic
1:01 pm
steadfast commitment that will protect those who can least afford it? sorry, really? just roll the clip (bleep). >> the president has failed to include revenues in the case. >> no tax increases, if will you. >> there no no tax revenues in this. [laughter] >> jon: i was really hoping that clip would be a lemur with its head in a tub of mayonnaise. but -- [laughter] the president has got to be pretty upset about what has taken place here. >> i want to thank the american people. it's been your voices, your letters, your e-mails, your tweets, your phonecalls that have compelled washington to act in the final days. >> jon: let me just stop you right there. you are not pinning this terd on us! [cheers and applause] last time i checked the buck --
1:02 pm
if it's the buck -- the buck stops with you not the twitter-verse. of course, the president, i guess, could have included a debt ceiling raise in previous legislation that republicans were desperate for like when they wanted to extend the bush tax cuts back in december so that the republicans wouldn't have had such a significant amount of leverage over the white house going into the deficit reduction negotiation. even a jedi master strategist wouldn't have seen that coming. >> how do these negotiations effect talks with republicans about raising the debt limit? it would seem that they have a significant amount of leavage -- leverage over the white house? >> when you say a significant amount of leverage over the white house, what do you mean? >> jon: well done potter ten
1:03 pm
points for griffendorf. [laughter] go ahead there. tell him when you mean from december. >> a sense that they'll say essentially we're not going to raise the -- we're not going to agree to it unless the white house is able to or willing to agree to significant spending cuts across the board, probably going deeper and further than what you are willing to do. what leverage would you have -- >> here is my expectation. i'll take john boehner at his word that nobody, democrat or republican, is willing to see the full faith and credit of the united states government collapse. [laughter] >> jon: funny because it happened. [laughter] let me do a quick impression of what is going on in the white
1:04 pm
house at the moment. find me that bow tie boy and let him tell us what happens next. [laughter] it looks like the democrats got hosed. but i'll bet the republicans are creaming in their jeans. i'm sorry trousers. >> ooh! [laughter] mmmmm, mmmmm. [laughter] subtle. [laughter] trillions in spending cuts, no revenue increases, go ahead tea party congress people put on your hats, play your fifes and dance, tea party like it's 1799. >> i can't vote for this.
1:05 pm
>> we haven't gotten what we need. this is totally inadequate. >> congresswoman michelle bachmann is voting against it. >> i'm going to vote against it. >> it's a yes vote? >> i'm voting against it. >> jon: what the (bleep) tea partyers? what the fee, fi, fo -- (bleep) you control less than one percent of congress and you have convinced everyone -- take the win. what are you so angry about? yes, government still exists. we still have traffic lights. [laughter] we're sorry. not everybody defines freedom as the ability to not pay taxes. government isn't perfect but some people wish it was better not gone. this whole process has been
1:06 pm
like -- [cheers and applause] -- you're in a bank -- it's a negotiation where you got some hosthages and after getting everything you wanted you go, one last demand, i get to kill the hostages, right? this is the part where they come after you and they go, you won the debate and they say what are going to do now? we're going to disn --

[cheers and applause] signed by lieutenant philips and the rest of the intelligence team. it was an incredible trip. i visited many fobs, forward operating bases. they give you patches when they meet you that describe who they are and where they are from. these are some of them. i urge you to tivo the screen, freeze it and take a look at some of the great men and women out there doing that. this one was given by a soldier
1:11 pm
whose last name was similar to mine. at which point i said to this soldier, well, then who are you? [laughter] so please take a look at that. and i was handed handed some nod things like that. if you would indulge me, i have a few things i need to say. first shout out to gi jew in kandahar.

1:12 pm
or would be placed close to your dining hall. to bagram air force base i'll never forget our night at the clam shell or the fact that one of your soldiers told me that my mets hat was considered an unacceptable risk and that's why i was given this one. i very much appreciate that. [cheers and applause] to the period to operating base dbir ron mow it was the best cho in town, no question. it would be nice if someone warned me that it could get hot enough there for my ass cheeks to fuse together.

1:13 pm
[laughter] but thank you for warning me that the afghan national army guys that we met would not understand things like who i am -- [laughter] -- or sarcasm. [laughter] to a couple of fobs i'm not really allowed to mention their names because of things going on there, i want to say your tenacity and bravery are outstanding and inspiring but i want one of you to explain to me why your mess shal decorated like a 1940's brothel.

1:15 pm
perhaps disappointment but there will be no shame. i appreciate that very much. [cheers and applause] i thank you guys. it was an incredible weekend. i can't really put it into words. i do want to say people can disagree about strategies and political and foreign policy and things of that nature but hopefully we can all agree that the men and women of our armed services are giving so much to our country and the task that they are performing is a complex one. it's nuanced. the patience that they display, the tenacity and the competence they display are astonishing and they doing it on a surface that at times resembles when i assume to be venus. i cannot thank you all enough. you are amazing people. thank you foreign sharing this we me -- thank you

1:22 pm
compliment is: your better than and ape? is that considerate in some way? >> in today's given age, given the conflict of our times i think it's amazing. we don't need to torture animals. >> jon: that's true. real chimpanzees as amazing as they are are incredibly powerful and unpredictable. they are not meant to, let's say dress up and play the drums for us. >> not at all. >> jon: were there any actual animals or was it all people in capture you suits. >> except for a dog, just people in a suit -- >> jon: that would be bad. but a heck of a cast party.
