Ryan: international trade agreements
Gregory: but he just sent them to you
Ryan: and we will vote on that next week
Gregory: so what are you complaining about?
Ryan: we need to lower corporate tax rates
Gregory: what about stimulating
Ryan: we tried that already and it failed
Gregory: but the recession started
Ryan: I was talking about Bush!
Gregory: so what’s your problem
Ryan: Obama is creating a ruckus
Gregory: could you describe the ruckus?
Gregory: Biden says the GOP wants to
Ryan: not true - we want to work with
the White House on passing all our ideas
Gregory: what about other ideas?
Ryan: stimulus is just sugar high gimmicks
Gregory: aren’t tax cuts also just
sugar high policies?
Ryan: Bush was a big spending liberal!
Gregory: I did not know that
Ryan: Obama wants to tax 80% of all
small businesses at 50%!
Gregory: Austerity alone do not seem to be enough
Ryan: Bush spent trillions in stimulus!
Gregory: what is the answer?
Gregory: “Hope and No Change”
Gregory: Herman Cain said “Blame Yourself”
- is that the GOP message?
Ryan: no we must do more to help rich
people get more rich so more people will
want to get more rich
Ryan: we can also go after rich people by
getting rid of Medicare
Gregory: interesting idea
Ryan: Obama is playing to fear -
the GOP would never do that
Gregory: But is ‘blame yourself’ divisive?
Ryan: we should not pit people against
each other - we should all get along and
give more things to rich people
[ break ]
Gregory: Can Obama work with Congress?
Biden: Look we can work with John Boehner
and Eric Cantor but the Tea Party shot them down
Gregory: I see
Biden: we need a strong Republican party
but they are disorganized and spend most
of their time fighting each other
Gregory: as a Democrat I’m sure you
can appreciate that
Gregory: If the GOP are inept can
they beat you?
Biden: sure we can be beaten - but I am
counting on the good judgment of
the American people
Gregory: good luck with that
[ break ]
Gregory: are you a do-nothing Congress?
Aaron Schock: we are not a do-nothing Congress
- the House GOP even wrote our very own budget!
Gutierrez: the Tea Party wants to burn
the House down!
Gregory: the race is between Romney,
Perry and Cain
Halperin: It’s always been between
Romney and NotRomney
Gregory: can NotRomney win?
Halperin: when the nation gets to know
Rick Perry’s life story people will love him
Gregory: why is Cain surging?
Halperin: there is a huge hunger for
someone really crazy and Cain fills that void
Gregory: What about Occupy Wall Street?
McLean: people say OWS is disorganized
but then so is Washington DC
Gregory: banks are greedy - who knew?
McLean: we need to talk about reforming
the entire financial system
Gregory: why are they demonizing Wall Street?
Gutierrez: Hey Fluffy - they got $700 billion
in tax money and in response they charge
you $5 to get access to your own money
Schock: the GOP has heard the concerns
of Occupy Wall Street and is responding
by attacking the EPA
Halperin: Obama needs to be nicer
to the big banks
Gregory: Some some say Mitt Romney
is in a cult
Halperin: only people who speak for Rick Perry
Gregory: why can’t the GOP choose a nominee?
Schock: hey Fluffy it’s only October -
We have plenty of time to settle on
lunatic to lose to Obama
Gregory: and that’s another episode of
Meet The Press
