-- when it -- so who will challenge President Obama and 2012 while still anyone's game and a new Fox News poll proves this is true.
To -- candidates have edged their way into the top tier -- even though Mitt Romney and Rick Perry still lead the pack Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich are inching their way up.
Now Herman -- recently won the Florida -- straw -- -- this -- kept the momentum going with another straw poll victory.
At the biennial convention of the national federation of Republican women now -- received 48 point 9% of the votes cast.
Perry trailed with fourteen point one Romney with thirteen point three and Gingrich took home twelve point 5%.
While -- McCain was relatively unknown to many Americans just a few months ago.
He now says -- someone to be reckoned with and He put it down a new book so you the American people can know exactly who we is -- comes from the titles.
This is Herman Cain my journey to the white.
Is nobody else's and that journey -- -- I think that what -- confidence like he's saying yeah Heidi we're gonna sit thanks a lot have regulations I think you know I've -- you wanted a little over 1012 years yes sites.
I learned things about in this book that I -- know before and I'm gonna get to a just -- I -- ask if you political quite understand.
You said about Christie.
Now -- -- incredible from the primaries a liberal.
He has more liberal positions that a lot of people who don't know about yet for example so well his position on if you here illegally.
That's not that should be -- crap excuse me.
Well a lot of conservatives believe that is -- And I've talked to some people in New Jersey who live there and they say He has a lot of liberal positions I don't know all of them but I think all of that will come -- how they said judicial interference.
Yeah a lot of people yeah I think I think the one issue that really probably is hurt.
Governor Perry the most is the instate tuition issue yes it hands job.
Are right this this issue came up about Perry and you are -- -- on the outcome of that on the Sunday shows about it.
And that's about Perry Agassi went to this hunting -- Israeli never owned it right -- that would lease it or rented or go there.
And they had on Palin on Iraq the -- work right now governor Perry's camp to say wait a second.
As you said that it was insensitive.
-- a name that on the rock is insensitive.
But it wasn't you weren't addressing that towards Perry now Leo -- fact that it was on the rock and whoever was in charge of Iraq.
It was insensitive now the latest information that I found I've heard because I haven't researched it have a -- -- you know more important things to do.
Is that in 1981 they handle it -- -- that.
Compare that Perry family did -- the players have no idea but so what -- from 196 that in 1981.
How come along it was there I'm not trying to figure out who -- -- -- believe that there who hated over.
As long as it was there it was insensitive that was my whole point folk and they recorded his every word right I got and I -- so -- to -- -- John.
I don't believe.
That that word on that rock represents how governor Perry feels about black people on America I really don't -- the end of -- they end up with me all right now before you get to book I got to show you take yes -- you.
In night but wait you you have not aged a day this is you in 1994.
Bush and his health care plans you're the had a godfathers Pietrus and a welcome show Clinton's too long -- would show your response after He speaks of asset.
Okay first of all Mr.
President with all due respect.
On what the impact would do.
Quite honestly is incorrect.
Let's take for example the fact that after I went through my calculations you'll calculation -- -- example of the 6% all of the seven point man.
And in my case it works out to seven point 9%.
Now -- so polls that 30%.
Of my calls a label cost seven point nine times that would be.
The two to two and a half percent that you referred to.
The problem with that calculation served.
Is the fact.
That -- most of those 30% of the people currently have zero.
So why not calculate in the fact that I have to go from no coverage.
On those employees.
To full coverage at the seven -- -- percent rate.
It actually works out to be approximately.
So what I'm saying and suggesting.
Is that the assumptions about.
The impact on a business like man are simply not correct because we are very labour intensive.
We have a march mamma part tanned and short term employees that -- do not cover so one simple reason.
We can't afford it.
-- with a fax.
I cannot say that was that was a big moment that Merrill seminal moment and -- what happened after that.
All of a sudden.
Business people start the read to fine print.
Different organizations they started to say you know what he's right they went back in -- of their own calculations.
President Clinton and his administration -- pushing bogus numbers mean and they got busted.
In that once and it's spot right there you know you said you're American dream in your book.
Let's get 20000 dollars yes right you've run let's say you worked it Coke is very.
It worked a Burger King gets godfathers pizza CEO yes most of them most of the situation you -- -- turnarounds in other words companies are out of bankruptcy gets the only 120000 dollars you thought you made.
Because when I was -- we did have a lot of money.
I can remember my dad could only give my brother and that money to eat in the school cafeteria you one day a week and Friday's.
And it was 25 cents.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Hot dogs apple not a carton of milk how sorry and that He will be it was they let these a day.
And so I grew up saying you know it would be nice to may 20000 dollars a year why.
I agree it somewhere that if you make 101000 dollars a year.
You could qualify for an American Express card.
I want to have them move that would not material life -- American drain and I'll never forget the day the mob boss at the naval -- the laboratory.
When I was a ballistics analyst called me in this that you get promoted we created a new -- the Basra mathematician position.
You going to be promoted because you got to masses agree you have you done a great job you gotta pay if it -- sit well Wayne thank you for the title but what is it gonna pay.

Now that reinstating drawn up in the segregated south.
I am not mad at America.
I don't have a grudge against America become one of the things that his late this nation great.
In his short 203 -- five year history -- is its ability to change.
