Laura Ingraham hosted Fred Thompson, contributor to "Saving Justice".
Thompson who worked on the Watergate situation, spoke about Judge Bork's take on it all. He talked about the Stennis compromise on the Nixon secret tapes that AG Archibald Cox were demanding and the White House was refusing to turn over to Cox. Cox then slammed Nixon to the press while there were critical issues going on the world. Cox's office was loaded with liberal assistants. Ingraham commented on the changes in the media between then and now.
Thompson stated that if President Obama's numbers keep going down, a grand bargain on the budget is possible. He said the Obama administration is political in their judgments rather than judicial.
Thompson admires Senator Rand Paul's guts in the filibuster which was provoked by AG Eric Holder's incompetence and stalling in defining the limits of executive power in regard to citizens being targeted by drones without cause. He said Holder does what he's told and has the proper contacts and demeanor to fend off critics most of the time.
Thompson doesn't want the president emasculated in time of war and thus feels the guidelines must be transparent. He noted that Judge Bork was all about the rule of law, not politics.
