Welcome back let's I gotta gotta be wrong so far for that -- TV's -- daddy take very -- -- -- Would Democrats rather face me it or -- don't Greg you said that when that focus group brought you up every once said that quote he's like my really cool stepbrother from Copenhagen that you end up hooking up with yes -- -- source on the.
I was I just happened wander into the focus group BOK and it rosary I wrote that down to these papers looked at those percent yes -- -- of course that's good enough for me absolutely.
I'm glad you asked them to some people might have been questioning the validity of that largely a slide that's my job yes he'll.
You're -- to come up with a focus groups no I doubt you would expect it to.
It also -- -- our donors really thinking about trying to draft Paul Ryan to run.
I've read that from the -- you.
-- was great on -- about UB as a really done -- all Bryant.
-- -- -- -- -- but we did it all right there that's all right what's that Paul Reiser.
We're not -- Paul Ryan -- OK so I think.
Tucker you by the -- -- 2.0 argument that's been going around he's changed -- has learned from his past mistakes because I think I think adult and changed profoundly.
A really good to see him alive I can tell my wife that -- Listen I -- now now now it's just I mean you that he looks at me with just.
-- -- -- -- Officer Rodney should Gingrich isn't a flip flop -- -- -- -- I noticed I he has.
Been back -- for a lot of things most notably that commercial about global warming you do with Nancy Pelosi.
But here's the thing.
Well flip flop with somebody who you don't know who change their mind -- what he's been around so long you know when he's gonna change his mind.
-- the whole scope of it done so to me in a long term is not a flip floppy -- Content behind it but our next question I -- -- he said Romney is Mormon and Americans don't like voting for non Christians mormons consider themselves speakers.
Well person Hawkins.
Chris I think that's a problem not a I think a lot of Christians do and summed up.
Rally I think so yeah railing -- the current -- I don't I think I don't think that's true I -- -- -- -- brought the fact that Gingrich has been able to connect with Tea -- years which considering -- an insider is pretty amazing I think this is sort of like -- -- -- was -- sort of like the greatest -- -- Gingrich ever pulled -- was convincing the world he wasn't an insider.
I don't know how he's done.
I don't know how he's done it and he's convinced people you know was really interesting is that a lot of people who were originally supporting Sarah Palin for president.
Shifted over to -- and I'm looking at an insane you revealed that Washington outsider and then you have the ultimate Washington insider.
What happened and I think it's that they don't know -- else to yeah that's what we're at a point now where it's like okay he's the smartest guy in the room Manila debate what where -- -- we don't.
I I have heard it I've heard the argument made that he was actually so despised in Washington that he not he can be considered an outside I think that.
Yeah I can't say that argument last night over things.
Really what I'm then I withdraw the -- by author John -- as you said now you said Gingrich he's clearly -- smartest guy in the room most of the time but.
Don't think he's problem is he thinks he's the smartest guy in the room -- all the time yes I -- it to me to like it's it's it's like Donald Rumsfeld syndrome.
Yeah I think he he's very arrogant and Americans -- confidence I think he arrogant I disagree.
He says he's the smartest guy that -- that's just one room if -- set up the smartest guy in the house in every room yes.
Well yeah he says it regardless of what room he's -- that's -- regardless -- -- -- -- -- outlets -- the -- he thinks he's being -- could quite.
I think I've realized he is the smartest guys I don't I think has to -- -- you can be as -- And not let everyone know that you know you Lars -- arrogance after the -- now I yeah right you know remember Barack Obama -- super arrogant so you want someone going against him as an opposite down there.
So -- he's not -- -- I hope Barack does Scott's flag you confuse the two between arrogance and slacks and a I don't let anything but all the way to 9% on one thing while.
It isn't it they have a lot of that stop it.
-- -- that we live in the same bill that don't.
So you're gonna get over it -- noble where you have got to -- Back.
Could address again.
They Girardi said -- republic easy to grow their own Obama.
That is displayed only has a Ford's first and it was a -- a lab.
He -- -- seems like typically doesn't like the perfect dude he wasn't he was the perfect black do.
To be the first black president McConnell like Jackie Robinson was that you might might have -- -- the best right but he was the best viewed -- be -- now.
And that's what that actually good point and he still -- a whole thing.
That know that and we'll get a -- hall of fame president still you're still upset about that happen.
And I am a black stuff.
Don't get angry right.
Built batteries don't battle started on integration yeah we don't have a couple hours.
I did and TV trash talk coming from winning -- are you sure you've seen a lot of women say horrible things about other women.
Examples please and please use people we know.
I can't the let me tell you I have a lot of male friends for a reason because -- I've you know I went to -- all girls Catholic school from K to twelve I I've seen some ugliness Andy.
-- not -- ugliness Avalon Alfredsson now I don't UST yeah like that's who -- things I won't be sharing on -- Win.
Sure I would when he said that women on reality shows always go after other women is not because they're not they're an inference.
Well I don't know if you about that they're kind of like a baseball life -- you've got -- husband's gonna has been working out of the house.
Do you think they're not there to make for insurance would reduce the volatile set him up through an overdose of old man so we cannot have little clinical -- TV dominicans and so -- Eight I came in with a film meant Andy not -- only are they there and not to make friends but when they're eliminated they swear that's not the end of them all up -- Abu -- and -- -- -- Back up their -- Pop's death yeah we just get your knives and go you -- you haven't heard the last of me.
In the yes we have but I have -- -- -- -- Yet what is the -- is in jail but.
I heard a lot of -- but still it's just -- -- culture yes you know you're about that -- I didn't I don't follow -- happy got to look Google -- happened.
Or is something pretty weird -- -- not gotten -- -- -- mile and a.
Following the news Twitter account locks it down to -- he said -- -- is -- obnoxious tool but don't you think at.
I don't disagree don't you think the beautiful thing about him is he has absolutely no idea how he comes across.
Yeah I mean he is he's kind of raw and real and being sincere I mean -- something.
Appealing I hate his politics right caricature of right over fed entitled celebrity and yet there is something authentic about -- but -- -- you real talking yourself apparently lots of -- Yeah I agree but let's -- to first principles I totally right but don't agree with that but.
It is right now gets a lot of flight attendant would probably just trying to do our job.
-- Iraq and he's -- but he's not.
He's actually less phony than most yeah yeah he can literally like what -- following him on Twitter actually fund was one minute you'd be tweeting you know Occupy Wall Street.
And the next minute he's posting a picture of the sunset from the Hamptons but -- He has no our latest chip -- right yeah yeah absolutely no idea that there's a disconnect there.
-- an irony free world absolutely I aspire to that yet.
I'd get a guy -- -- the ball -- users don't use Twitter to go after people remember he had similar -- I was a couple months ago.
About it's like the ones you made about the flight attendant he had similar tweets about Starbucks blew released whatever they're called it -- -- -- she gave him active pattern yes.
Absolutely I think it's when it got it they're not -- hot or not flirting with -- he doesn't like NASA limited.
They are books and first class airplane it's not like white people problems -- -- yeah.
Our -- camera do it just last night.
Greg you mentioned that locking your Twitter account means you can't take what people are saying -- you.
Which I think is just what you want in a future mayor of New York City is absolutely.
-- -- race yet.
As somebody throws tantrums and transportation.
But like I don't think it's -- -- he's not it's not what you do every morning she.
Was always what I call -- never -- yeah.
Coming up you Jack.
