-- been busy on Twitter lately let me read you one of your recent twitters it's about dep present -- obvious that the habitual vacationer on America lacy this past week and -- -- He was at.
It -- summit in July take issue.
Well I do indeed when he's using the 747.
Boeing to go around which is cold Air Force One to go around and campaign and raise funds.
And I can't imagine that the Republicans aren't being stronger about he shouldn't be able to do that but he's flying around and Air Force One.
Which is a plane that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars an hour to fly -- -- that -- maybe they do but I've never seen anybody do it like this means.
I've been watching this for a long time and I've never seen any president work like this this is crazy.
He -- -- -- equals at this he's campaigning.
He's really campaign.
RX two which.
Would -- the reference -- says he said when he was speaking in November 12.
This is in part.
But we've been a little bit lazy I think over the last couple of decades we've kind of taken for granted -- people -- -- -- we aren't out there hungry selling American trying to attract new business into America.
What's interest -- that he calls people -- him and he's done one business dealings like that was his house.
And is a big question about access so it's very interesting that he's calling people lazy because he's really referring to the business community.
And they don't give us the tools when they allow China to manipulate their currency when they allow other people and other countries to do what they're doing against our country.
You know it'll be nice if the government could give a little help.
But for him to call and I said at the other day on.
Actually when he shows a set of the other day for him to say that the business people.
Of this country a lazy it's disgusting.
Especially coming from him.
Lot more -- a lot more American businesses going overseas and developing products with a growing around the world and foreign companies to come here I think we want American companies to stay here and develop that product that was it that was all right let's but that's what's going on I mean that's a problem that people wanted to -- that -- -- choice.
Even you I mean you're asking me a question do we want to go over there -- developed.
No I think companies should stay here.
Make their product and sell it to China like they do tell us what we'd like that that's ideal but that -- me that's not happening at least the reason it's not happening is.
Because of a simple manipulation of currency and we do nothing about it.
But we should be making product here and sending it out.
You know China assisting you wanna build a tractor good we don't like -- -- go build a plant in China we don't do this.
We don't do this we're not doing it properly in this country.
China says when you see what happens to Boeing had a lot of good friends of Boeing.
And what -- gonna happen with China and Boeing they're gonna make their own aircraft they're gonna make everything that -- gonna be buying from Boeing version.
They're going to be making their own aircraft that's going to be made in China.
And they're going to be competing with -- like you never saw before.
The -- topic 2012.
Give me sort of a highlight of what you think is going on the race who's up who's down who's.
-- it's amazing because every day changes now note who's a friend of mine is doing very well.
Mitt Romney's doing very well I mean he's doing very well but he just doesn't seem to get that extra little balancing.
You get why -- -- move up a little bit he doesn't look down 03 budget I'll let you.
Could say he's got a very solid base -- -- he doesn't move -- and that's a big statement that you make he doesn't.
But you would think that he'd be bouncing.
Like while he's done great in the debates he's really done beautifully every single -- It doesn't mean opponents say that but if the numbers don't reflect it renaming it -- Great debater and he did you know all pregnancy does really well what happened the numbers are moving up the voters are not showing that they think -- to -- well.
I think he's probably not as conservative as they'd like to see and yet that's a very Smart game potentially -- -- -- gets the nomination he's gonna have a very good chance against Obama.
Relative to other people that may be -- are more conservative so he's playing a very fine line game.
And it may be brilliant.
We'll let you know about a year.
It one of things at the ever present that the Obama campaign is gonna go back from -- things like flip flopping on issues like abortion when he when he debated this Senator Ted Kennedy in early ninety's -- was pro choice he's changed his mind.
He -- a -- heat recently about the -- collective bargaining law in the state of Ohio.
They call the flip flop or for that he's getting a little bit of that which is going to be very painful should -- get the nomination.
Sure and they're gonna get him a flip flopping and other people flip flop and frankly people change their mind over a period of time and Obama was against the debt ceiling he voted against it and when he was a senator and did lots of different things cities now advocating.
So you know I guess they probably look at that as a weakness I'm not sure it's a weakness or not he change his mind -- to -- about the plot.
Well Obama certainly flip flops he was against the war he was gonna get his right out of the war was gonna end immediately in the meantime he got as more -- -- the war.
And by the way as soon as we leave Iraq as soon as that's over that thing is going to be a mess in Iran gonna take over so I don't think he's done -- any favor.
No I mean who flip -- more than Obama look at the war look at his vote on debt ceiling look at many of his other votes he's flip flop more than any.
Right it would be mentioned speaker Gingrich that he is at least currently searching.
Every day -- a little bit different her -- out why do you think he is said doing better now.
Well he's got some very good conservative views but I think maybe more than anything else he really is a very good debater.
And you know I like him because he's a member of my great golf club in Washington DC I love people that killing -- -- Danica and he's kind of -- his wife has committed a very nice and -- they're really nice people the people.
-- liked very much at the club that I can.
So why is that I don't say how likely do it -- -- -- fact it is a good debater.
Well I think the good debater is really -- big thing it's not just the debates have never been so important as -- for some reason.
Both good and bad I mean you've seen what happened to certain candidates didn't do well in the debate and it's really been not a pretty picture.
And Newt has done very well in the debates and Mitt Romney -- done very well it's.
But it but -- -- are interesting their -- to watch but.
The idea that you can ask someone a foreign policy question might correct the economy and -- the person thirty seconds a minute.
This little snapshot does that really tell us when you know first.
And it could be that you worst debater would be your best president it's possible but I think people want to see.
How a certain candidate acts quickly because you know it is a quick thing it is something to do with this.
-- quickly and how do they react under pressure because they were under a lot of pressure.
And Mitt has done very well in the debates and Newt has done very well -- the dates and a couple of people have done well and a couple of people haven't so.
Is the effective -- analysts look at a photo but.
Some of the personal issues for instance speaker Gingrich is confronted some issues from the ninety's with with his seven marriage.
There's been an allegation.
Herman Cain -- about sexual harassment all this sort of is this.
Significant in the race as a sort of going to be collateral -- -- well -- I mean it's not exactly a great boost and I think Herman is worked very hard to get rid of that and it seems like a lot of things are unfounded nobody knows the true within -- true but they don't have any evidence to prove.
And it certainly is not a positive for Herman and it certainly is not a positive for -- and fact -- just -- -- -- he's doing well you know they were leaving them alone but now that he's doing well.
I'm starting sealed the vicious stories -- -- about -- and you know it's going to be tough period of time but.
It is not positive it's strictly is not house.
Ron Paul to -- out.
An interesting guy he's got some interesting views on things would you agree -- don't agree he does have some.
Interest in common sense I view it is common sense not libertarian.
Views on things but.
You know it's going to be very hard for him to win it's no question about that.
-- a couple of the folks that are debating I don't think we have to get in too much into names but it's almost like why are they taking up the time.
You look at the numbers they stayed at 1% for a long period of time.
And you hear them answering the same question over and over and over at the date and you don't want to hear it from them you really wanna hear from the candidates -- have a chance.
Maybe it made him as it could implode the well you get surprises all the time it's happened before but.
I think certain candidates just that much which means if -- right now I would actually be folks again.
-- lot of time there and and let him -- extract but ash samples well I guess that's levers of really good ground game an island New Hampshire South Carolina Florida and a couple people doing.
We'll have to see that works but a couple of people doing.
We'll be -- -- focused also in New Hampshire.
The advice for -- Well it's interesting and probably the best thing he can do is get my endorsement.
Because I do carry big indoors it and you gonna get.
I'm looking at a lot of different things you -- says it has -- -- -- and I'll be making an endorsement it's.
Well what's the what's the why you -- -- you -- you have a level of certainty are very determined business management have been very -- -- -- -- that you now I'm looking.
Do I know in my mind -- it's going to be have an idea that's going to be I don't what -- -- -- what -- what's the criteria -- -- -- just seeing what their attitudes are on certain things as an example.
Foreign policy we keep talking and -- country about the economy now.
Very rarely do we mention all of the countries throughout this world -- great world of ours.
That are ripping us to shreds because -- leaders issue opera smarter tougher.
Than -- -- -- right there I suspect that way they've all made this their pilgrimage to see you.
I suspect you've spent more time with them asking and questions like that -- we see -- sort of snapshot.
Debates the truth so I would think they'd be farther ahead of this decision that.
It now ordinary.
And I are strongly about it I mean we can say education we can say all sorts of things you know it's interesting they talk about what do we do about jobs.
And people's we need education I -- the debates it's very sad.
They talk about everything but what the primary reason is.
We're losing our jobs to other countries because of stupid policies and actually very very stupid politicians.
I think is his numerous is just the President Obama administration that some -- and an epidemic in prior administration.
Gotten worse I mean we honor China right now I watch mr.
Huntsman the other day it was almost like roll over and let China take over this country are watching the debate.
I thought it was a terrible answer I thought it was -- -- not that he gave it improperly I think it's a terrible answer to a big problem.
I -- I think that.
We have to focus.
From within we have to start getting back to the core values of this country.
The world is eating lunch -- taking our jobs -- doing numbers on us and our politicians aren't Smart enough to even realize it.
When we have the president of China coming to this country Obama gives him a state dinner.
What he's doing to this country is unbelievable.
Are not talking about Obama talking about the president China but if you think about it Obama -- Right now in terms of just China and another China's it has got a big part -- back for years has been very important in terms of the press.
Which one of the candidates for the Republican nomination do you think would be the toughest on China the most aligned with what you think should be done about China.
-- it's a very interesting question is starting to get tougher in China I've been preaching this for three years and you know takes a long time.
But -- starting to get tougher on China I think the one that's toughest on China that I see right now is Mitt Romney.
Black well what -- said this convention that well is it very similar.
Thought process as I do having to do its job and he's obviously seeing that China is ripping us ripping us -- -- And it seems to me that he is the toughest -- Our OPEC is in the US open OPEC's the other -- it gets you really going OPEC is the single biggest abuser of this country Epson.
Who is -- which of the candidates has that office approached hacker like anybody none -- them well.
I haven't seen him using the word OPEC I mean I haven't seen them really discussing it too much but.
I will say this the candidate that wants to drill in this country.
Without mentioning the word OPEC is OK with me also because frankly we have so much under our beautiful -- In terms of natural gas in terms of oil in terms of coal.
They don't want to use call you know chip -- shipping coal to China Chinese musical but we can't use -- Tip to make it an impossible for our companies -- -- and yet other countries are using power call.
Aren't they must have been following pretty -- particulars must've found the pipeline dispute from -- certainly had been up put on hold this the president sort of caught between environmentalists and the union's right.
Well it's obviously politically as a wanna do it -- after the election he's caught between the unions which is very interesting where they want it.
And is supposed to be -- his side and the environmentalists because they don't want anything in many cases and -- an environmentalist people who work.
I've received so many environmental awards -- -- -- up from the standpoint of the environment.
Let him and environmentalists that once things happen you have environmentalists who want nothing to happen.
And Obama is court so what does he do instead of doing what he should do which is appropriate.
And get some fuel in this country and get some jobs in this country.
A wait till after the election that's -- he did purely political.
The fact that -- I think it's terrible.
And and the fact that it's so obvious -- it's not like oh gee there's no just it's obvious she's gonna wait to lifting the election and that probably approach it.
When it's -- -- just this it's it's hit that congress would this with the debt since last August and the super committee at the super committee doesn't reach.
A decision that's by -- Thanksgiving -- approved by congress.
That there are these huge cuts that will go into -- fact that the Republicans are unhappy with and the Democrats are happening because an -- constituencies but that doesn't go into effect until January.
After the election.
Because they don't offend their constituencies.
Of a super committee is an outrage.
If we had a proper leader in this country he'd get everybody into a room and did make a deal.
For you to have a super committee which is highly political to start off with.
Is absolutely an average -- hearing the committee is not coming to terms -- not.
Doing what they think I don't know it's hard to believe that they won't come up for me everyone says they won't come up with a deal.
For me it's hard to believe that they won't because I think there's a lot of political pressure on them to come up with it.
But the super committee is an outrage that we even have a super committee.
I you don't see my point is that if it in the event did not lead to decision it's not like the -- trigger gets pulled out or it's it doesn't get pulled back elections -- -- it Democrats and Republicans will feel a paid.
From their inability to work -- Well the one that really wanted that to trigger after the election was Obama and he totally out negotiated the Republicans and I'm so I'm Republican.
He totally out negotiated the Republican because the one thing he wanted in this whole deal was with the decision to come do after the election and because he knows if we end up -- call to greatness.
We had to greatness six months ago.
He knows that if we he went through that again prior to the election he could not win the election so he got the one thing he won it.
Which was only for his own preservation.
And he's a politician so who can blame them but I can't believe the Republicans -- that decision to come do after the election.
He couldn't have won the election could not have won the election if it can do before.
Thank you thank you very much.
