(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's David Gergen and Gloria Borger about the political showdown. [GERGEN - says Obama is trying to scare people, but Social Security checks will likely go out; comments on Obama, the Democrats, the Simpson-Bolls plan, the Republican view that government has become bloated; suggests there will not be a mega-deal or a moderate deal with a short-term solution coming despite what Obama wants.] [BORGER - says the Republican Party has a new strain: the obsession with no new taxes trumping everything else that voided a potential deal.]

Cooper, Anderson
