This is written before the election I don't know if Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan of the things I do know that Barack Obama and Joseph Biden tried -- appear for a vote for Obama. Is a vote for the certain -- national -- look at lower Manhattan in the dark try to imagine what America might look like the rest of when the sides of the longer needs the dollar's global currency reserve. For years we have had a president who -- and every thing but Bill -- nothing but yeah. -- -- -- Really set at the beginning in different ways the response to hurricane champion Ben Ghazi exemplify the fundamental and seriousness of some power wildly. Whether or not to get serious choice facing -- what -- going to. And now we know. And now we know what -- what we are diminished -- we are diminished who was behind serious level. No room. I'm just real way being Barack Obama. Robert your next -- we cart -- Robert. Ali yes -- victory in Dalton I thought that it. Community preservation act out and vote. No. No -- normal media we all went new media social video. What. -- sorry guys -- not tomorrow a lot of great great victory yet today one little battle. We know what the formula or not all the others got out. Got a new the new couple new project. Number one if they take on the health care for the young in the all leave them alone. Because that's coming down the road and going right into the pool and going out the mind the last. Battle -- going. Okay thanks Robert congratulations on your Big Three 121877. Forcing mine were -- too. Lizzy Warren took and that should give her state some. Where he -- and win when all was said than done it for country 41978. Is American but that pulled. 603 at the on the move to Greece for a few years and come back to the United States doesn't seem so bad. David your next with power -- go ahead David. I waited David is not moved back. I I've enjoyed watching us today and and listening to us about your your guess. We call it it was I don't wanna be is routed the earlier Davis is one of the offer. Three takeaways pieces of the site at the GOP. -- facility -- -- now that I like you know Iraq just song or Obama won't put as much as anybody. It is -- to a certain demographic in this same demographic if you he was doing this election. And if you hold strategy for winning mean you've got to win white -- a greater margin than it was when and minorities at -- for relevant. Well you know that the problem is that we have a we had a slight. We have a problem here we elect are David the problem is -- feel like or does not paying attention. They are they did this this electric has become fundamentally I'm serious. I'm sorry that's the way this. Which is if you're gonna -- Holder's view of the people are paying attention of the media bias and. You just take your -- channel because there's just no substitute for good ground game and say what you will about the Obama team. They ran a great round. I of this I understand I understand that they be that. Problem -- I think is larger than this the the problem it's the it's the old thing I forget who -- that originally but -- in the quarter million times and at the the hope bill I believe it is when the your days as a the -- receive our. Our our our number and I think that's what I mean would you deny that most of the Obama on our own work. I can deny it because well I personally think federal taxes that they pay taxes. But I I still thought that. Most of do you play do you work for the federal government -- -- government knowing about it. I'm in the credit by the editor or a bump Elliott David there aren't too many way to put them. Right so let's. Most of the beautiful on Wall Street and there are a lot fewer of them use I mean most of the people. Who vote for Obama are are in some way shape or form want to stay. -- it one more point -- in and I'll I'll I'll stop harassing him and that is it's an interesting. Phenomenon that this election cycle the -- point from the big donors didn't seem to work whether they you know there was. On the left or the right and a couple others and hundreds of millions of dollars and all the additional -- -- this. I mean you can say that Soros can't less. Oh excellent don't think that case but I'm just shot the big money didn't hold -- more than that we all thought it -- Well then that's more than and then let's not worry about Citizens United right now I am worried about that well I am not worried about it it's you know again corporations are you. I'm sorry they are people and you know that I'm -- at the unions in Michigan says -- he -- that's why they put -- -- whether what the referendum question on the ballot to say that that we put that people in Michigan couldn't have a right to -- a right to work. Shop they just they always have that closure of some people voted down. But I mean the basic argument that the unions will make -- -- that they -- they -- you know that they have that they had these inalienable rights to want more press real -- You know if if if a corporation. As a person that the unions -- okay and in of the union is an a if they operation is and it isn't a person and unions. It's actually yeah yeah and I agree with. That's got to hold I got a hold you right there 1877. Forcing mind. 43221877. Foresee mine were three to do any hope Obama you're good to deal no there's no Obama you get to deal were all gonna get room now. This is again I mean this is the tendency you got the only people are gonna gets by Obama here. Politicians. Who were gonna get the the free health care. War people who have enough money to go to the blue -- on virtual world but -- -- 222000. -- -- 503000. Year. And and buy into what these are there these these these crack misses and they'll get media venture. You know get referred the view there on her who he practiced it belonged to work for the other. You know it's going to be OK if you're right. If you get a if your middle class B they they are who they are going to destroy. It in the used it in the the interest of justice they're gonna destroy the best system middle class health system middle class however that. And there's no -- Mean recently said it was going to cut down. Costs -- -- What's it gonna -- nominal cost a few of the government involved in the cause health care. And adding tens of millions -- key role in moving illegal aliens who don't pay. It never will it. I was gonna be let them cut costs. And it's also gonna force a lot of blood on yours too early retirement or entities who he. This is or maybe even to offshore. In this who's going to be fewer doctors who wore 22 war. Served more -- And for which they will receive less money. And that's a formula get more by -- -- -- would it. But the good news is there will be one class he pulled it will be increased and eventually under.

If you know anything at all about what -- know why we're saying Obama is and I'm an advocate. Yes -- He claims he has yet he claims he has this birth certificate the groups that he is but that we also have the evidence. That you know we was trying to get a ball publish yes so that he had been born in Kenya. So I don't think we and there are many many people who don't -- -- that long form birth certificate of his that he recently produced is actually a real birth certificate. So I would say frank jury is allowed now. Let me out -- are I don't know. A thumbprint on the record. But I have a copy of it that it would indicate that he was born in portrait or in -- -- I worry about what I wouldn't I wouldn't put too much faith -- that that document for. Hardly a BB I think the odds are. Probably that he was born in Hawaii. And that he and the the the the mention of him being born in Kenya in the and in the a sales pitch that he made to get a book published that was just to mail him your more exotic. But the fact is frank out or I'll buy you what I there's no document in the world that says I was born outside the United States held by -- -- -- -- Now but but at what point and it replied I put it across. Neither could you play. You want I couldn't put it across that we were born outside the United States what does that say about the president of the United States that he it's he wouldn't Ross was.

I think they do I think they don't quite mean I think they. They figure that surrogate do that like John Sununu seniors talked about Barack being lazy collings CNN the group B channel Mitt. Mitt has to be above the craziest of being he had to be mr. nice guy you think Mitt Romney knows the definition of who -- us. Again I think he's letting other people do what he's trying to be he's trying to be the nice nice fellow you know the -- grandfatherly type. 18774694322. This roar from the Wall Street Journal today. Lecture we talked about this -- when did you feel they let her carmaker fiscal automotive -- -- more than 300.

I'm fastened my seat belt to get out of there before burned alive in the car that's OK I was concerned when I read in the in the original accounts. That the cars in addition to catching fire world so it's looting. 18774694322187746. Mine were three to two. People are now hurting Christie. Fat men really hurt our effort to come on now -- in line with Obama to so 3413. That -- he's the oldest I was revenge for not doing it fortunately what we needed what. Just wouldn't. Like. 1877.
