8:01 pm
well have been talking about washington. a lot of wrong guys are doing a l of wrong things. pretty much all the time. both parties. we have congress another fight on spending and signing up on the new debt ceiling. can e blame our kids for a pass on responsibility? and so much easier to point it when our youngsest can point to all the adults fingers. a president to blame the health care rollout on a news number. republicans to blame democrats are spending excesses then sign to a trillion dollar farm bill. a former speaker who said the health care law isn't -- it is liberating them from their jobs. i would love to see anyone admit once i screwed up. i never do. the retail ceo who blames the weather for a bad earnings report, the countless ceos who are blaming the health care law for any future hurtings report. please, leave to a corporate to sully the issue of denial from
8:02 pm
ceos to doomsday blame to politicians who refuse to take change. a zero accountability line th marches nowhere. aye can was right. it's not right. both republicans and democrats do something right and admit they're wrong. and constant finger pointing is wrong. look, this is enough blame to go around. i prefer they all just get to work. so does swiss america trading chairman. they afraid it is spedding up for a wicked day of trading. i feel a feeling you're not talking about snow and ice. >> it's going to be 80 derees today. we're in good shpe in phoenix. neil: rub it in. >> i love your intro, neil. i have to grasp on something. i did't think about until y t. >> i have to grasp on something. and he said, you know, young

8:04 pm
let's pull together let's go back to work. let's work these issues out and let's get this thing back on track. that is what has made america great in the past. that is what is going to make us great in the future. but in the meantime we continue to blame them. >> we do. i think what is worrying me is that it has become a political partisan divide what is something that we go back to light after the meltdown of the bank bailouts. and this is sort of like when the pedal hits the metal, you have to own up for your point of view and not pass the buck are to blame. so this is a ramp up against both parties to say, i recognize that you hate each other and i recognize that you blame the other but i think that there is
8:05 pm
enough blame to go around and what bothers me is they can't get past that. as a result they quickly signed on to another -- a gut feeling hoping that eventually that they will address the underlying problems as to why there is escalating debt, but they never do. >> what about the millions of mortgage holders who sign and say that they pay their mortgage but stop paying their mortgage or walked away from their homes? some people cannot wear them. but plenty of others just walked away and went on the street and bought another home. instead of in transit and pointing the fingers thing that lets get back to work. he said it when he said let's get back to work. and i guess that we could say that recently we had a little bit of a call maii of the waters in washington and maybe we can work together the i am convinced and you might take issue with me but i don't think mr. obama wants the waters calm but i
8:06 pm
think he likes stirring the water and he liked having the controversies. >> that is assuming that the waters are calm. so this goes on and on. it's always a pleasure. thank you so much. >> good to see you. to higher limit. >> republicans don't care. >> democrats and the president. >> how many said i don't know i was watching "fox news" an said it was horrible. >> i think the opponent seems to be the indifference of the republicans. >> republicans decided to sabotage -- >> i ope yo are beginning to g the picture here of his responsible for disfunction. >> they haven't been abe to run the ship. >> did you hear a single one take responsibility for anything? they say the truth urts but constantly lying hurt more. if memory seres me right american are forgiving people. they forgave a new young

8:08 pm
and so you to -- i always said, look, i want to underprompt and overproduce. but you have to set out thre or four thing you want to move forward, move your conference to and get done. and hopefully work with the other body, the senate to agree with that. and try to take it to the senate. now when i had bill clinton we took some things and he vetoed. we took it him to him. he to make a decision. one of the things whre the crime bill and finally had it on. he signed on. neil: i think we are pennsylvania that now. whatever said in here the contempt or just hurt feelings

8:10 pm
neil: i'll mention health care to you. and it sums up a lot of democrats -- and so many others who say you know what is wrong with someone saying we botched it. even if you i'll give the benefit of the doubt nobody was lying but say we did not appreciate the magnitude of the problem. maybe we should have. i didn't hear that i don't know if i will. i know, the president said some thing to that effect. but it might not probably wasn't as ch as what it should have been. when i was in the government, i tried to follow that mantra. if you mess it up apologize and say here is what i did wrong and try to fix it. >> that's why you're not there
8:11 pm
