Horrible this really ticks me off it's my first step presidential today and they have been so many rank and wouldn't you know guys -- -- all the time.
Is it here -- -- Herman Cain the former presidential.
-- -- safely ensconced Atlantis say that type of guy Herman Cain is we -- ordered a car for Herman.
Never showed up so you know what the almost president the United States did he -- in a car insults and drove -- location.
And he just sent us a huge bills for now anyway.
-- anything good to see you.
Good to see you Neil I am sorry that I won't be there things you going to be wanted to moderate -- I think you -- -- mean throughout bulls' first debate -- perhaps at the -- -- does it we we kid a little bit Herman but yeah you know you did galvanize these debates he made him fight committed to seeing mr.
999 and and then did you live opened up a big debate about our tax code something you're not the other candidates have been able to do love the -- -- sentence.
Party in -- that.
Yeah that's the build a part of this whole process the -- apart is that I'm not there to continue to push the envelope and to push what we need to do.
If we probably need to do it everybody on that stage.
What we need to do we need energy independence I've been talking about how we do it we need tax reform I've been talking about how we do it.
And so forth on all the the other major issues so bad part is the -- apart and not being able to continue to force that but the sweet part is that.
Under the circumstances.
I -- delay -- that the constant re spinning of those false accusations.
Don't continue to.
Hurt my wife my family and I and so -- in the first but as you know but I will miss being -- -- -- -- -- up with the other candidates as -- last.
Answering the tough questions from -- the moderates.
-- you and your wife Carrie -- We're doing great thank you we are -- and great.
And I am in retrospect I don't have any regrets about the decision that had to make.
And I just want to encourage all of my supporters stay tuned that's been my message because as I indicated a couple weeks ago.
They -- he is a -- and be.
I became the voice of a lot of people who didn't feel as if they would be in represented in this race.
-- this voice is not gonna go away.
So I just want to encourage all of my supporters state to what does that tell me what does that mean our men and does that mean a third party runner what does it mean.
No no no no nothing like -- it doesn't mean independent run it doesn't mean a third party.
It just simply means that I'm going to continue to promote and push.
And Gallup asked people around solutions because that's what I'm all about and that has been that central -- when I was a candidate so I'm just -- stay tuned.
They will be hearing more about these solutions.
Nothing you know -- -- would have.
The choice here but it's a Republican war.
To get elected president.
-- sure you would be a bit among the -- this small group of folks considered for cabinet positions.
If you had your wish list what would a bit.
My first choice -- if it were the right person and a Republican got elected president.
My first choice would be Department of Defense.
Now that might surprise some people but here's why.
Remember one of my philosophy is was peace through strength and clarity.
Strength means military restrict economic strength and moral strength.
I happen to believe that our military has been cut too much.
I happen to believe that we lose an -- superiority.
And I would want to be in a position to help reverse that.
As an influence on who have as president secondly.
We owe it to -- in women in uniform.
Who have been fighting wars for us to give them the very best investment in technology.
And resource is I -- wait two -- stories.
About how -- -- men and women in uniform do not have the tools that they need.
To do that job and they -- job is to win for America so that's why I believe that I could bring some leadership.
October brings some priority is and I can bring some attention to rebuilding an album military the way it really -- that.
That surprises me though arm and I mean that no offense steel and it guides you were very strong and economic matters and debates and and -- -- Not so strong on some of the foreign policy ones and in country's Middle -- -- came up.
So that one would surprised that you do you give me right -- for commerce may be treasury.
And that's where you are well suited and background and why why why go outside that that safety zone.
Well it's not -- if you look at it from the standpoint of playing to my -- leadership.
And remember my concept of leadership starts will working on the right problems.
Outside -- -- right priorities -- surrounding yourself with good people.
This president doesn't listen to the commanders in the field we've got great commanders in the field.
I happen and believing what he did in those commanders in the field yet drawing down out of Iraq now -- its arsenal divide.
To Iraq and well.
-- the commanders in the field did not support the decision that the president may.
I don't agree would -- down those troops in Iraq because my biggest fear and the fear of a lot of the experts.
He is baffled that will be a power vacuum.
And that -- a vacuum is going to be field.
By an element coming out of Iran.
Based upon the way the sectarian it's the -- country is set up and so I don't believe that those commanders.
Do believe in that strategy they'll simply being good soldiers this was a decision made by the president of the United States.
And a lot of people who don't agree with that I think is very dangerous.
Is your favorite candidate remaining.
I have a lot of respect.
For several of the candidates.
I have not made an endorsement and I'm not gonna make an endorsement right now so unfortunately when where you can't give -- in it.
Any breaking news I have not set a -- frame on it yet Neil I have a process that I'm going through.
And I haven't completed the process before I -- that what idiot that I might do in the future but as I say it to all of my supporters.
And that would be supported -- state to.
Is just around the corner.
All right thank you Harmon boys could see again -- after getting a car driving yourself here.
We appreciate all -- you we're not paying that limo -- on telling.
I'm sending you to deal and it's gonna be more than you have a pony -- naturally expect that.
Apps are all on -- -- this all right mr.
999 thank you very very much Senator McCain you got -- -- you know this Christmas what.
