7:18 pm
credit rating when pulling out a simple calculator gives you the honest answer. lou: did we should replace 435 members of congress with a calculator. but one did every station in. at some point when they work for the fourth stage. to get a 5% approval rating that is because you have heard that right now the national media gives this is ministration at pass on every foolish statement that they make. >> is studying the duplicity of the national press to walk out the door to the talking point in when we point out it is wrong coming

7:20 pm
message that reverberates with people paying your salary. >> we have spent trying if they think we have done the okay job. lou: that is not a good standard. >> we're trying to be intellectually honest. lou: i will not canonize you or your party you have been talking about debt ceiling breakthroughs equaled the fault just as the democrats. don't be sorry. you'd only be if you try to correct me because it is factually correct in you have got to deliver a message if you think it is right that al least as a party or caucus to come up with a message that is intelligible. >> you have had this on the air we just try to make a
7:21 pm
fairness argument if the president use the exemption for big business why not to the average american? lou: i am with you. >> i find these see that this is reverberate. lou: day you want to see that message? you put away defunding. let go of the language of defaults in show everybody the president's approval rating. put that up please. take a look at this. here is. there is the effect of doing a good job and the intelligence job avoid you say is a life-and-death issue he is now at the all-time low of 37 percent of the associated press. >> maybe it starts to sink in the absurdity of the argument.
7:22 pm
>> if we have to migrate from defund obamacare to the fairness argument out as we have heard one of the things i am very proud of you for doing in to give you great accommodation is 2.0 the debt ceiling does not equal default does not equal a recession. every elected official in congress democrat or president, i don't care who makes up nonsense the talking points deserves to be rejected by the american people. >> even today with ddbt that print media. we had a bit of a breakthrough because two years ago there is only a couple of us to get in front of the camera to walk america through it. lou: don't walk america
7:23 pm
through anything. do the job to take the message comprehensible and connect with the people. i am so tired at all have the inttllectual firepower to talk down to the american people. inspire us, lead us and cut it. >> stop. lou: don't talk over the congressman, i will give you the last word but i would like you to be sustained and make the message cogent. >>. lou: i am sorry i will not let you say to me look, we are piers and i respect you for your office i'd like you as a person. just tell us. >> was about to complement you but the fact of the matter is making it clear anyone the uses the word default is been duplicitous

7:29 pm
this successful recall, is if it is successful, will give republicans control of the colorado state senate. nine days into this government shutdown. eight days away from the debt ceiling and as you may have noticed, as it ends, no one knows. but one thing is increasingly clear. president obama and congress are playing a big political game and paying a big political price for the lack of forthrightness. i personally believe it is the president of failing to fulfill its constitutional responsibility to negotiate with congress. this is not an authoritarian government no matter how authoritarian as presidents mindset may be. it is simply not his prerogative it is his responsibility to negotiate and the american people are mad as heck because of his attitude and they are
7:30 pm
getting matter. a new associated press poll finds just 37% approved of the job that our president is doing. that is the record low for president obama. 53% disapprove. other polls reflect much of the same disapproval levels. we reported to yesterday that congresses approval had fallen to 11%. and now we have an update for you. the new associated press put the approval at 5%. that is probably comprised of members of congress and families in stackers at 5%. and there is a glimmer of hope that the american people have had a belly full and are awakening not only to this president who refuses to negotiate, but a congress that only recently started making
7:31 pm
this. and 33% of americans, 33% of americans think that the number one issue facing america is dysfunctional government. 33%. the number one problem. the highest percentage ever. it means that our president and members of congress are considered to be bigger problems than the economy and unemployment and the deficit and health care. this president and his administration are simply refusing to listen to the american people. they're not just refusing to negotiate but they will not listen. this includes listening to 62% of voters who want congress to raise the debt ceiling only after agreeing government spending and they aren't listening to the 51% oppose
7:32 pm

7:37 pm
american and from washington dc, georgetown university professor bradley graham. thank you all for being here. let me ask you something. does this offend you profoundly if this president keeps talking about creating a default and going through a recession? is that offend your sense of honesty? >> no these are the real people being impacted by the shutdown of consequences on if we fail to raise the debt ceiling. to say that the administration knew about this and didn't make it clear congress, i knew about it. and republicans look us in the face and they are trying to talk both sides out of their mouth.
7:38 pm
at first it was -- lou: this is a conversation it is now my turn. that was the department of defense. the secretary of the department of defense. a democrat nominated a secretary of defense and it was not republican. was it? >> he was a republican nominated for a democrat. not that they were quite aware of the consequences. lou: you are not offended? you just contradicted yourself? let me turn if i may to brad. are you tired of the nonsense whether republicans move, where they are going to defund obamacare and this is one of the silliest things i've ever heard and they have now stumbled into a policy position that is rational and making sense.
7:39 pm
and now a president who wants to say that he wants to negotiate. >> they got got themselves into a mask on the republicans come in the president is helping them out a victory of the street to let me speak for a minute. the president of the united states is supposed to be the adult in the room using his own language to bring people together. who did he meet with? the titans on wall street. and saying how disappointed he was that the markets weren't reacting more violently than they were and giving them the heads up that they should have. >> you remember this president was using the word extortion? cement absolutely. and then they talked about jpmorgan chase with an @%1 billion settlement. is that extortion? is that the definition?
7:40 pm
>> let's turn to the idea of the government default taken by republicrepublic ans or democrats and most recently by this president who is now doubling down as a poker and a washington expression. but the debt ceiling equals default and recession. >> it is a credibility in frustration sequestration. that we lost 1 penny in the government the sky would fall. and we thought with the shutdown. so there are things that continue that they seem to be arbitrary. >> you're talking about the
7:41 pm
illegal advocacy? >> and this includes -- lou: i reject this arbitrary and this is a campaign ordered by the president. >> it is not good that he is not up for reelection ever. guess who has come and that is what this is going to come down to in 2014. president obama is no longer ever on a ballot. this is not the way the constitution and majority rule has served our country well for 200 years spew on my goodness, there is something ironic about you saying that. >> what about all of the minority special interest
