So a lot of things are shaking out here on the other hand.
I know that.
Calls on my radio show talk to people.
A lot of people were hoping Rick Perry catches fire -- or Bachmann or Santorum.
Catch fire in -- Because.
Perception is that.
There's no doubt.
Concerned about their conservative credentials.
There's no doubt that every day.
Either of those three would be fighting.
For the country what they believe in exactly as are campaigning for there isn't any.
Vote qualification of belief over here or change because of where you happen to be -- what the audience is with the audiences.
I don't wanna be misunderstood the seeking perfection because it doesn't exist.
We're all imperfect everybody -- Such thing as perfection.

They'll be lot of fraud do crazy things happening in various states but I I'm imminently.
Optimistic that we can win.
We name Bachmann and Santorum and parry as -- not like.
Romney and Gingrich where they've had different -- obvious different views on important issues.
Why do you think that Bachmann -- and Santorum.
Can't get any sort of movement in the polls there way low in the polls.
I think largely.
Both Romney and Gingrich -- personalities have been around for years.
Newton is larger than life.
-- Is well known.
A lot of people's memory of -- is he's here's a guy actually cut government they're actually balance -- budget is a guy actually.
To -- the house -- and Democrats that's.
A lot of people have that memory.
-- when is a member congress.
-- -- -- -- 100000 people vote for this her first four -- the national stage.
Rick the last four it was a senate defeat.
Perry is -- governor coming out of Texas running on the national stage for the first time.
The voters are I think people are naturally suspicious.
It would take awhile to get to know people.
And are gonna watch these are we debased -- size them up for competence.
Ability to speak all these kind of things.
Lot of it depends on who's asked what in these debates who gets a lot of time who doesn't have so many variables in this but it.
If it boils down to is it is up to these people -- noticed.
It's their job they're running it's up to them to get -- -- them to get the votes it's up to them to make the connection lights people up.
Why some people can do it like I can.
And others can't.
-- what I guess who knows.
The debates have -- all to the American people are.
Not so useful well these are high that that this series have been I think been on -- most double have actually been very good.
They've been very.
-- and I think they've had.
Many many good debates were conservatism was actually well articulated and explained.
And argued about.
I think the early debates there was.
A doubtless unity that the real target here politically was Obama that's who everybody was focused on beating.
-- -- -- to fears -- worries me about about the the whole concept of debates though television is that.
Are fed up with their candidate being perceived as if it stupid -- -- -- The Democrat candidate is always portrayed as ARIAD -- More will spoke Arctic.
George Bush was not those -- George Bush spoke haltingly.
Red deer in the headlight appearance -- sometimes on camera.
And throughout the eight years the undercurrent was bush was stupid move -- Dole and you never fought back Carl -- -- did not respond to defend any of that stuff Calgary.
So was allowed to sit.
And grow and and faster -- so now the Republicans -- call today.
I'll vote for Gingrich just -- I think -- mop the floor with Obama to debate.
