Oh yes you -- -- get -- -- in on the side here.
Well we have set it here how I haven't -- -- that -- -- did.
The mainstream media is in.
But what about on the GOP side -- they have a favorite candidate.
Well ABC news' Jake Tapper told Imus that he thinks it's -- right do you agree with.
-- -- When he went on to say he's he represents the least horrible alternative -- -- in terms of the left wing media.
I don't even know if they waited and pattern that we don't know what that question comes from because they're not in the game Allen president in the game but there will there is something out here.
That is pushing Mitt Romney forward.
There's there's an invisible force it keeps him -- up almost likely.
I grew up I grew up on on lakes and ponds and remember we're tickled to Bob and when you fish and he keeps it.
Number what happens in the -- are what are what -- hopper did Ronnie he stays up so that maybe that's why this ABC guy in just deciding game -- out to thank you -- that -- -- decide to say okay I guess the left wing like I you don't fun.
I think at least horrible is actually what they mean -- it's it's not that anyone in the media.
Ever they really don't talk about their political views bank in that they might hold -- and they might decide how they're going to vote and we note from surveys that they tend to.
-- -- But it was not like do you like Mitt Romney it was like if you had to choose that's it I'm just forgot about all these knuckle heads which -- would be the least objectionable to you and that's how they can you just -- -- -- that deep cut under my dad and daddy didn't have that little satisfied popular demand mr.
bowling talk about your child and how you and I.
-- -- they can someone tell me who Jake Tapper is tough.
I'm kidding you don't really matter.
-- so it's not what Jake Tapper -- it matters what Karl -- things that matters -- and -- the things which by the way she thinks.
Mitt Romney is the most conservative for many reasons I can't list it matters what Krauthammer thinks those -- the people who.
Matter to me especially being a GOP nominee process doesn't matter which it.
-- -- -- But what about a profit media beyond that of the -- think they would really love it landing on as you all -- kids are hotter at.
Eight he's in Massachusetts moderate and they got that the health care mr.
Mac knocking certainly Marilyn Monroe and John Kennedy's birthday parties show Barack -- -- -- -- I'm very excited.
All episodes I can almost not -- but now.
Other one bit about these -- reporters and so that I'm convinced also there's a forces says about what does that mean over the South Carolina I mean I you know are there reporting.
And they're not giving -- to report it probably wrap this thing up so there's.
Is little counter balances the other thing about these are about -- real.
What really matters is we -- visit South Carolina I think Romney's got a real problem.
With the Mormon isn't it problem in south -- to be more pronounced and you watch over the weekend and from the pulpits.
On Sunday is South Carolina it matters a lot of those -- to say it winning.
Well he's -- in South Carolina he's not winning by march that support a means of Poland south Carolina's 31 for Romney 24%.
Jump like four for Gingrich.
It pretty close race and by default.
-- well but I'm -- -- that -- seen it so at least you're gonna collapse sent -- Gingrich right right there will be almost automatic coalescing of the right around somebody.
They're gonna think that person's gonna be able to -- a lot of votes.
And out of the ground he's got more that -- Hasn't doesn't its damaged and in the end Tran by the infighting that we chassis but I get something from his Perino kind of like first stressed that the Ellison and.
Expectations president's he got elected it would be senior campfire -- This situation would improve -- you just give an idea that the the president's promise was.
Just to change atmosphere but but to change the way Washington did business and to change it -- bye -- Working together cleverly with congress and others in Washington to get.
People here to focus on challenges that they had ignored for too long that we had ignored for too well.
And that included.
The need for Wall Street reform the need for Health Care Reform.
Inching comments like -- -- don't if you -- night I -- and a I'm here's the problem when Bob says that the reporters -- necessarily want this to be over in South Carolina -- they need something to talk about.
That's also true for somebody at the White House I think if you're in that position as Press Secretary because all of those reporters there are talking about the 2012 election.
You as the president's Press Secretary aren't really supposed to talk about the elections -- I Shaq -- -- push that over to the campaign.
And focused on the business at hand but it's really hard to do that.
Unless you're discipline and to say I'm not doing that -- campaign next question but that it's hard to do in the briefing.
I'm not so how much does suck up your because a lot of Smart but -- -- this current pressure to I would take out some tapes Tony Snow.
And then if I don't take a look at it and realized what it means to have a short answer -- did not say distribution center and break.
-- up my -- (%expletive) until August this question why if I.
Did it but -- it is a lot -- -- Bryant.
I thought about the message yet the message in the message -- -- -- to take on this is there a problem with on Sunday the president's strategy for reelection comes out.
And he talks about turning up the attacks -- congress in the campaign and then this question from Ed Henry about hope and change -- the president hasn't varied from that the less -- get Sunday's New York Times.
And re actually are so I get an impact record told them the strategy to get reelected you can't have open changed at the same time decide I'm not -- with congress for complete.
Did that I think the ash that is this is gonna be just for you like it or not is going to be that I've tried to do what I tried to change a tragic demonstrate they wouldn't go along.
They -- they want to see me -- rounds in the country move forward and that's why couldn't do it.
Aren't letting them -- a little debate prep advice I'm going it's the next couple days I copy you by the massive right.
Yes you're out you -- -- -- the guy who wrote I Rodger -- that's correct you get five bonus goodies from acting.
You know me I love Bob says -- time and they VC.
It's -- Bill O'Reilly interview with that seal last night I did not only eighty punch out Jesse -- Herat but he's America -- the deadliest -- We have the highlight its.
-- can't just.
