L: I was looking at your itinerary for the day, and the activities and the startups and visits, and considering your day, yesterday, it just makes me dizzy. When you wake up in a day like this, is it something you relish or is it something you gonna to say, 'oh, for heaven's sake, I am gonna to go see Letterman?'

O: Ah, that was unexpected seeing that appear on the schedule.(L:hahaha…) I was…(L:Well…)Why those words, you ask your advisers, who's responsible for this? (L:Yeah,exactly right!) And everyone kind of looks down, pull out their blackberries and...Nobody is accountable. So we decided that there wasn't gonna to be any fancy camps during the summer or anything, they basically just goofed off (吊儿郎当,游手好闲) all summer, which I couldn’t do.

I actually think that what’s happened is that whenever a President tries to bring about significant changes, particularly during time that economic unease, then there is a certain segment of the population that gets very wired up. And it happened after they have called us socialist, communist, JFK, there are all kinds of names, Ronald Reagan, when he came into the office he moved into a different direction people were sure that he was bringing the country down and so this is not untypical, one of the things you sign up in politics is * but I think that what's been missing from the conversation is that the overwhelming majority of people, Republican or Democrat, I think they just want to see some common sense, they just want to see some honesty and integrity in Washington, I think they are turned off by the shouting and yelling and they expected more from the Republic elected officials, and so…that is something I wanted to...
