Mulvaney said Paul Ryan is ready to take the pain in making budget cuts while the Democrats want a government shutdown. On the sequester he wants to have savings but questions how real they are. Ingraham cited the example of Democrats favoring deferred savings that will never happen.
Mulvaney said he won't challenge Senator Graham for the Senate as he likes the House and that Graham is more popular in South Carolina than people think. Ingraham said that while Graham is a nice person, that he rushes to foreign conflicts and immigration reform.
Mulvaney doesn't see any support for amnesty in the House, but only a few reforms such as border reform and Ingraham countered that this gives the Democrats cover as they will nod their heads and not enforce a thing. He said it is never a bad thing to say what one stands for.
Mulvaney said his triplets are on their Christmas card.
Hoover said he has received fewer of the canned holiday card newsletter from friends and with those who send cards include multiple photos with no handwriting. He and Ingraham cited the family photos that seem to be self-serving advertisements. Ingraham said that secularization, depersonalization and narcissism. They questioned if too many cards are being sent to too many people.
York said there is a sense of desperation among the immigration advocates as doing the budget doesn't allow time. He said that a lot that is in the Senate bill depends on tech support and given the bungling of the Obamacare site, it puts immigration reform in doubt. Ingraham spoke of the opportunity the GOP has if they don't diss their base as the Obama voter coalition is crumbling. It was noted that voters may not be able to keep their doctors. Ingraham prdicted that when the 50 million insurance cancelations for small businesses will kick in. York stated that the Democrats keep saying that most people won't be affected by these changes which is a lie.
Brooks said he took off time away from politics and found it a pleasure. He feels that is true conservatism and that government has its limits. He thinks it's a tension between being more daring and staying put.
Brooks said the health care law and the Dodd-Frank law haven't been successful and thus have made Obama's presidency unsuccessful.
Brooks spoke of coverning Nelson Mandela when he came out of prison with his attitude of forgiveness and reconciliation to President Obama's refusal to meet with others to solve problems, even within his own party and feels he's above others.
Brooks talked of people who identify themselves as politicians as living on a thin reed. He believes in politicis but there should be a balance. He is concerned about the concentration of power in the government.

The Ingraham Angle with Laura Ingraham focused on MSNBC hosts' slurs on various political and media personnel.
Ingraham said some liberals feel that after 2008's election of President Obama, that they can say anthing, especially against conservative women and blacks. They are trying to raise their platform by these tactics to intimidate. O'Reilly said it's about the lack of talent and Ingraham noted the failure of Obama policies. She feels the liberals are trying to change the subject as the country hasn't been transformed as they hoped to their vision.
Laura Ingraham hosted P.J. O'Rourke, author of The Baby Boom and How It Got That Way.
O'Rourke described President Obama as a typical boomer. He said the Baby Boomers acted on what their parents felt. The Boomers had the luxury of being to act on these impulses. He deemed Obama as an odd duck with a different upbringing. He said the Boomers love politics as it is easy and not a real job. O'Rourke agreed with Ingraham that Obama is good at campaigning and the trappings of office, but not governing. He also agreed that Boomers need to be connected emotionally to issues, never mind the facts. O'Rourke said the upside is thatBoomers get along with others and aren't prejudiced. He predicts the following generations will have contempt for the Boomers being square and won't see the economic decline as quickly. He said the dependence on the government has been a long term coming.
Kudlow feels President Obama is wrong on raising the minimum wage as it hurts the working poor as it will raise the prices of goods and services. He disputed the data that would suggest that the minimum wage worker adding more to the economy with more in wages. He also cited safety net programs to help the poor working class. He said the unemployment rate is terrible and underreported, but that the income inequality arguments are overblown.
Sensenbrenner agreed with Ingraham that the NSA isn't to be trusted as its role has been expanded without oversight from the FISA court and the two Congressional intelligence committee. He said this all has gone beyong the rules and intent of the Patriot Act. Now cellphone data is being collected on citizens, allegedly. Both Ingraham and Sensenbrenner noted how security personnel such as James Clapper parse words or outright lie.
Sensenbrenner said the Sensenbrenner-Leahy bill should be passed to protect citizens privacy and civil rights.
