2:04 am
this is a conservative sport, in favor of obama. if they don't, it's pure policy. >> kimberly: if they don't, do you say it diminishes his legislative accomplishments? >> bob: no. say you have a hack supreme court. get rid of the republicans and get back and get it done. >> dana: that is my point. if it goes your way, it's great and if it doesn't it's illegitimate. like bush v. gore. >> bob: that was illegitimate. >> kimberly: after they strike it down we'll play this backment >> dana: "60 minutes" didn't play it in the original piece. this is the entire interview online. but it so happens that someone spent the time to watch the whole interview and pulled it out. it's not only the words, it's the tone. i think that gets to what you were saying. >> greg: yeah. here is the thing. if you look at the list of accomplishments, saving the country from great depression unproven. auto industry unproven. healthcare cost, unproven. making student loans more
