This is outside News Corp.
headquarters a parent company of course a Fox News Channel the most important news network and -- laurel.
And we -- well if we -- -- yeah.
-- just just hours hours away I really think about but the big day itself and where we stand.
We're -- a very bit busy shopping area valve itself.
Our sixth avenue because they have in America is in midtown Manhattan were not -- -- from radio.
City music hall we've got a lot of stars and done it for any big folks in and out joining -- policy -- throughout the course of the next 45 minutes or so.
But you know we never keep that Barbara politics last week at this time eyes -- Iowa for the big debates.
Now hold the question is in that state whether it's a revolution could be -- the making and that fellow on the left DC.
There's the guy who could be bringing it.
-- halt the front runner right now in the Iowa Caucuses he joins us right now from Texas congress involved surrogate dad did.
Thank you Leo good to be reviewed are you surprised that not only view the front runner you've actually been -- -- front -- -- -- a part of a week woods is.
At least in recent polling history on his usual.
And that that dead with a little will probably get -- -- down the pressure's on to maintain an added Obama.
Yes you know I get.
I'm not so I'm supposed to say I'm not surprise and I expected all on now I'm a little bit surprised but of course very pleased I was always convinced.
The the message would be very popular and very necessary -- isn't quite sure.
That I would be the messenger they could deliver it.
-- things are going very well on the crowds are getting bigger not smaller the enthusiasm is growing and I'm talking to more than just the young people to college kids of retired people coming -- so there's been a definite shift here in the last month.
Congressman you've probably heard Terry Brad said the governor -- probably governor are.
Said if you were to win the state.
Is telling a lot of people ignore that and focus on who came in second what did you think -- them.
-- -- I was surprised because he's been pretty generous in the past in I don't know whether.
He didn't mean it -- -- the way it did admitted this time a little bit strange.
But if that was a literal translation and that's what -- man.
-- I think it diminishes the whole process of democracy and elections what's the purpose of doing it you know.
They -- way he gets his supporters out -- that's what I'm supposed to do.
Maybe IE -- solicited inning guy and approached people who aren't the ordinary voters you know like.
The independents and maybe young people decide to come out of the people have been disenchanted.
So I would say to dismiss the election would be very good.
So that only kids just to governor I think there are others who have him in that -- this would be a monkey wrench into the electoral process.
Right designs engineers and others -- and -- they've been decades since Somalia colleagues at fox and it noted it.
-- say that your win would minimize and and then even trivialize Iowa in future elections.
On -- deal when you hear that kind of stuff.
Well you know what I refer she think what this is terrible.
Second sometimes this order helps because it certainly helps to supporters.
People who might not have been paying much attention.
You know they might even become more -- -- is certainly energizes me.
Because I you know I might be you know at a steady pace doing the same thing over and over again and not getting -- little -- extra excitement.
But then you get the point is a boy who would that be neat you could really -- them and have them -- a little crow so I think this is energized the campaign and the fund raising.
The other day when some of the stuff was coming out somebody columns that you don't want our fundraising has just gone up but -- they're really yeah.
-- just out the more the fundraising victim.
If -- -- that's what's happens it's ironic that maybe we need a few more people criticizing what's going on and and express the this enchantment of my election it'll be more fundraising and probably more TV and more votes for us.
So congress and when you do get to a front runner status says you have -- I invariably they start digging warrants of the past these newsletters -- name was associated with in the mid ninety's.
Are are seen -- ready to be racist they say that your races.
How do you respond to that now.
Probably make calls -- races I think the charge which you bug could be a correct charges are is pretty negligent as a publisher of a newsletter not paying more.
More attention because it is a bit ironic as a civil libertarian.
You know I'm the one it really champions.
Civil liberties and regardless of race creed or color.
Immunity even -- CNN that sort of stirred this pot.
Did a poll the other day and they took all the candidates know Republican candidates.
And I came out the best of all around in appealing.
Two those in the -- in the minorities so I would say that.
What this will do is stir up the defense because.
You know I -- address the drug war and how the prison system hasn't worked -- judicial system is very unfair to minorities nobody else would -- touch that.
In May anyway he says what they're trying to portrayed here -- is exactly opposite of what I am.
But I don't think it was -- coming they've they've been trying to do that for years this is pretty much old hat because that was coming those letters are written maybe close to twenty years.
-- is that where I -- he does everything right there you're right I think the bigger point is that that -- leaving aside the race's start to a I think those who have looked at your record Mike Mike but the government lies.
But but I I think what they're trying to say congress that in this is -- -- that you've confronted.
-- -- -- ignored -- your your aloof or that you're not paying attention these details and sometimes you need.
Or your your your very person to be dragged into something that you're not and that -- president this is -- this could be a problem what do you say to them.
Well I would say that may be as -- human nature because I think Obama was charged with if you move associations that he was not very proud about.
So now I think -- if somebody thinks some perfect and there it is they're going to be disappointed.
But I think in management.
I've I've done a lot of management when it comes to my business is my medical profession and in my congressional offices and we get pretty high marks but to say that.
I was never negligent you know back in those days I was practicing medicine and and though I was involved with the letter especially on the economic issues and -- about the you know the financial bubbles which you and I've talked about so often.
I did participate in out but to really paid close attention and they also have to see this in context I was on the publishing a letter a freedom report plus an investment letter for since 1976.
I was save percentage wise this is probably 100 of 1% or even less.
Of all the fouls and sent thousands of pages already and and most people see those letters is being investment letters they were hard money newsletters.
And that's what it almost anybody that knew -- -- tell yet get a newsletter it was a hard -- newsletter that -- -- Switch gears a little bit Donald Trump announcing he's an independent now.
Many say greasing the skids -- potential independent run for president what -- got a.
Been out to each his own I don't know who.
I mean he may do -- I doubt if he'll do it.
If you really wanted to drug be president outlining the why did he walk away lives to become.
You know -- concerned that he couldn't do it as a Republican and they -- so I have no idea what he's going to do.
And I don't think he'll be calling me for advice I don't think he's gonna come.
And ask for an appointment to come see me.
Two getting advice or any endorsement -- -- expecting that to happen -- you never kissed his ring like virtually other candidates.
-- -- You know I didn't I just didn't think it was necessary or appropriate I mean.
-- how could he endorse what I'm doing I mean.
My positions are pretty much opposite of what he talks about it I mean.
-- he's not he doesn't believe in free markets he likes the Federal Reserve -- And he he he's not a very trader he likes terrorist.
I mean so there's not much that we we -- com aren't so we always -- anyway -- our anytime soon Ron Paul.
I make you want Vizio to trump tower any time soon.
On -- and I'd likely I mean he would be they want to converse I'll be glad to -- -- very good congressman Bob thank you are very much.
When we come back we're going to.
