He can teach the Third World or how to avoid taxes on their yachts yes -- -- and he can't do that. A how we did Kerry get plastic surgery on his -- he's always that I don't think he's that he's the night that are and always refused to answer but if you look at him. In that seven -- hearing with senator frank church from Idaho back in 71 words were in the fatigues and that's when he talks about you know. Were raised in villages in -- far removed as of June Jewish pawn I mean his his. Chances Conner. Is much -- than it is today I I don't think there's too much question that he said plastic surgery. 18774694322. Flank your next with how we cargo ahead frank. It is the same impact plastics -- an answer policy -- about puterbaugh. Well I think that I think they're both you know -- in the if they should both go into the Botox -- Botox off -- Obama's program. Question for you. If the -- used in your town was warm up fast and furious scandal gun down or Obama I have to side. But there's a couple good Mexican children have both the white children. Yeah I've I've thought about that do. That's -- -- you're right I mean but you know on that thing is the mainstream media which you know. I have read I guess Joseph Scarborough went nuts today an idea congressman from a Republican congressman from Kansas who was. Saying that the media was just wallowing in this which of course they are. But you're right I mean think how many more people have been killed in Mexico by eight by America by guns that were paid for by the American government. There were killed a new town I'm let's announcing new town as a horrible horrible situation. Again but again. Right. Eight I mean -- -- beat the mainstream media. -- is for has been pretending from the very beginning that fast and furious doesn't even exist. You know. It's just you're right it's it's it's all right it's a it's an amazing it's an amazing example of of just how lot. How how in the satchel these people are the agency by the way that Jake Tapper has gotten a an anchor jobs at. It's CNN for me easy was a reporter at -- ABC. And he was one of the few very few guys model not certainly not a -- type guy not a conservative but he was just the it was a real reporter. In the -- -- real questions. Indy it Eddie got. He got he got an anchor's job and a mark -- was point this out on Hugh Hewitt show yesterday just saying I mean these these these other people like. That don't like. It don't like blind watchdogs. Admitted that devoted their the but blue dog that didn't bark they just they they can't they can't ever bring themselves to to ask a tough question of Barack Obama. In this I finally the one guy who who asked who acts like. A reporter. You know who acts like a police reporter. For eight. Normal Dayton daily metropolitan newspaper you know -- again he's not he's not terribly. Combative obnoxious he's just he's just asking legitimate questions and he gets a promotion they ought to learn they all learn a lesson from this but they're not going to. 187746943221.

How we as anyone comment and on John Kerry's ought to hear people go gray at the temple's first then gradually hair turn gray or white -- knows that. -- -- -- -- -- ahead of gray haired decidedly weird. Well the new student. It's thought we you know what -- you know what it's all about obviously right. John your next -- cowboy cargo ahead John. Yes it might trigger a lot -- show from -- All the way to comic really appreciated thank you I'm calling because. How much question -- comments on. What cardinal -- Did John Kerry commit to this sort of this administration to be -- that we are in this position. After we know what Susan Rice stated. Obviously issue larger brains out about things got what put this kind of position to be faster being silent dismissive and so law. Why I think Q he wanted to -- he's wanted to solve all of his life like I said it's you know respond their work for the State Department so in a way this is a this is something that -- he's almost thought about and I I I don't you know. Is as easy as it is being in the senate I mean every sixty year he has to pretend these from Massachusetts yesterday go to places like elements third -- bird you know. And now this way he can just spend all of his time in Monaco one which in -- holdings thanks places I I think he. I think he likes and and they and he did all -- yeah a warmup for a bit of a favor for a prepping him. As the what no he actually Obama -- of two things. In the first time Obama got any national attention was in the 2004. Convention which was controlled by Kerry -- he was a nominee and he let him speak and that was that was its introduction to the to a larger stage and he ran for the senate two years of US two years later. In the second thing he did was CP. He he was the Mitt Romney character in the debate prep now you could say heated to a very good job of prepping him for the debate considering what happened in the first debate. But you know while. I am Obama has gone out of his way said spent that bank and first preparations so I think it's just you know they give your what's really going to point. You know. But -- at this point -- don't know ohrnberger. Ever since Hillary developed somatic illness she's got. I took away a lot to be out of the ways as possible. Popular pick to -- since I was just wondering -- that -- -- Saul. Now he's sees bad night what he he knew that Susan Rice was in trouble and I think he was -- he was letting McCain and that Lindsey Graham particularly I carry as water Foreman knock curtain down to size in the -- but it. It behoove him not to say anything you know when the when they hit was going on it's like you know it's like. You know before the saint Valentine's Day massacre Al Capone went the Miami Beach right. Just sort of have an alibi so John Kerry's hands are clean and the in the Susan Rice yet thanks for the call John. 18774694322187746943. 22. Let's see here okay.
