Can't carry direct greats and Jack's.
Hey before we get to the stories -- -- -- actually dark Greg said we've been trying to get you on the show for some time and he said well you finally sent me some money.
-- standards of practices would like need to make it clear it -- -- you clearly you were -- One of the private deal between it had nothing to do with her nose between Greg and I didn't say that networker him the highest to to -- -- -- -- in its Rampage make up her first himself as the network.
They were CDs up any money you promised.
The promise me drinks that yeah I -- that's fine that's fine effective.
-- Obama's composite girlfriend.
And -- you -- you've been asking where are the ex girlfriends.
Yeah implying that one of Obama -- is killed Vince Foster.
I don't think he's Smart and -- Judging from the response of the one girl that was that the play -- -- So you're not not implying.
I'm not not -- -- wanted to double check me.
I'm Michael you -- you're gonna prix at me and and say that the story was updated later in the day to note that Obama said in the forward to his book that the girlfriend was a composite character yeah.
Well not quite Michael that's what I did his job and you don't I get -- back in the intro -- -- from my father Obama writes quote.
Some of the characters that appear are composites of people I've known he never specifically mentions the girlfriends -- this is new news.
But he doesn't mention that he's using composite here actually last night but it's just not identifying which ones are right he never had a girlfriend spot okay a lot of unity and yeah.
-- if -- -- there's potential for -- that we're supposed -- Yeah yes he's he's making a comeback.
-- never -- -- -- eleven.
Everybody's -- and we're all I want is living on TV not -- there was some kind of story about George for part that you referenced here and on forgetting what there was it was -- wrong because the beginning of the show yeah.
-- this is yeah.
I I don't think.
-- and since Bob what can you brought up the insufferable poetry criticism of Obama wrote but you didn't have it in front of you did you -- it -- yeah.
Yeah obviously from a letter he wrote to his girlfriend Alex this is -- top quote.
-- this would be TS Elliott -- contains the same ecstatic vision which runs from -- -- to you each however he retains a grounding in a social realities left order of his time.
Facing what he perceived as a choice between ecstatic chaos and lifeless mechanized -- order -- -- -- maintaining a separation of a sexual purity and brutal sexual reality.
-- -- through the skip ahead a little Michael yes he says and again this is Obama quote.
And this fatalism is born out of the relation between fertility and debt which -- touched on in my last letter.
-- -- -- Honestly -- -- fatalism my share with the western tradition at times you seem surprising -- irreconcilable -- don't you share this ambivalence yourself Alex.
Well as they -- this is a new line of attack for people who who want to go after Obama girls -- too tenuous of the things.
He says it what -- what is -- he loves TS Eliot Norton TS -- was a guy a job -- regressive anti semite so I'm just saying -- Eight game yet flew into action just in denial of putting -- better -- anyways yeah yeah.
And hey Andy yeah it doesn't the Wagner and Andy what he writes what -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- he wrote can.
Zero hats and might never -- Mario Jerry spraying from it and -- -- -- -- how do you reconcile.
His dog eating cat loving my thing is I'm fairly certain Bill Ayers wrote those letters -- -- What I've never felt sorry for Michelle Obama in my entire life don't you read that men didn't think that's -- -- I believe.
Right you're at all.
Why don't -- -- -- -- -- -- know I totally agree -- to disparage you today I yeah I should say that in fairness I was proud -- -- -- and pretentious insufferable know definite about it and I was like I mean I don't accept it secretly dream and she got a shadow falls reality so I that's Obama's presidency so far.
We don't know human cost.
I -- -- don't reveal and it didn't know you are sitting down at a yes -- What are you got to look -- if they don't -- I was -- you move on I actually keep your word you're saying so I'll just read your lips.
Well I'm from Princeton bands for your students rushed -- Andrea are you should you missed three quick.
I -- -- more information please.
But I think I did -- dance -- to prince and Shealy is the look then mark under some kind of visiting it will be together number with the chair.
The question and answer portion is what sealed although I did -- up and put oil on for the bikini competition which may have put me over the edge.
And my English professors of the judges.
So I think that was -- it didn't you didn't eat out the scoring is there and water -- gonna dream.
You know why is there video there -- nights that I lay awake sometimes -- and I wonder that same question and I do think someone from a different sorority.
Has a video a key -- there's a girl out there with -- -- not follow up question.
Do you see union sororities that report glitter over each -- Well like it you know like.
During planting and fast -- is -- video.
That I don't think there's video.
This is the finest work either we're gonna have you had.
Now it wherever that is going to be when I find that video I gave her hope that religion that is Republican thinking about -- but I don't think what happened between.
-- and -- the GOP for polarization -- -- correctly I think that when Republicans don't concede -- polarizing Democrats obstruct its democracy.
I think it's -- -- being divisive isn't it if the country split 5050 on something it's the people on the right who are being divisive.
That's true they always get blamed I -- every separate look at that much opportunity -- -- good good example of the polarization was I was -- to -- during that segment America.
You allow you Communist.
Where you're not allowed talk during -- time I was not given question you could have interjected.
I oops -- I AM a lefty and after -- blow up bridges.
But they don't sit there I have to ask -- -- my -- -- Michael you pointed out that there's an assumption by a Mann and Ornstein that hyper partisanship is bad.
And I agree they can't they assume that centrism is a noble goal but they never explain why it's just to -- -- them that moderation is a virtue.
Yeah any any in all the people that are that are -- -- like it's too bad and all -- -- -- kind of dripping centrist.
As the Tories used to call them -- Had had got bounced out of the senate and about congress.
But look I mean it all these shifts happen after some cataclysmic events after 9/11 people get to a little more partisan.
You -- and it you know you don't it's definitely saving you -- I just quickly on this report that says every potential candidate for the -- -- election deserted disqualified because of FaceBook Greg I hate to bring this up.
By the onion news network they -- this story to report from the shuttleworth institute.
Did some digging I don't think he's institute exists I think Owen and -- had.
Really yeah well I get most of my news from them now on I think they've got that there does appear to be shuttleworth foundation in South Africa but it might just -- -- legend we're not sure.
I -- well you know I think we got burned.
Yeah we got I don't know when that we need to redo a block or something yet -- just pull it out stock option.
I mean that up with billions in mind is always in the -- Which is hard out yeah.
With the rest of -- is still here you have.
