I don't expect Romney to win I'd like him to win -- vote for him.
But I think Obama is -- far more formidable campaigner and a -- -- your friend reminded margin just a bit Obama was swamped him in terms of money raising.

Nixon for example that he's our bodies is smarter than the average bear all the.
That's all I'm saying.

Particularly in Greece in -- view bill that kind of society with 36% of the workforce isn't working.
That you are sitting on a powder -- do you think he understands.
