On the road to the Tony twelve.
Have you heard him say that.
-- -- -- I believe that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot.
When everyone does their fair share we need to change our tax code so that people like me an awful lot of members of congress.
Pay our fair share of taxes we've got to build an economy where everyone gets a fair shot everyone goes there for sure.
Well what type of impact does -- president's message have on the business can joining us right now man who know and does now he's the owner of the New York Jets and does some other things -- At a Mitt Romney supporter Woody Johnson welcome to pick out hey thanks a nice couch well actually had to give it.
It is it with -- -- just -- box.
-- first -- what we're talking about this this climate at their fair share of people talk about guys like you guys like Mitt Romney has that make you feel.
-- say the Obama dividing the country certainly not helping.
I think Mitt Romney has the message if you want to get the economy Roland.
And get jobs started come on get salaries back up means dollars and got 10% the last three years incomes.
He want to give those back up divisive comments like that aren't helping.
It appears to be working.
If you look at the latest.
-- -- this is most recent one done by Fox News -- Obama will would win the election was held today 46% to Mitt Romney at 39% the interesting juxtaposition there though.
Johnson is that.
When you asked the questions about the economy.
And who would better handle the economy Mitt Romney comes out on top so what do we get from that because everyone's been saying this election will be about the economy.
Yes I agree I think these polls have vacillated.
They whipped around the last few weeks and I think they'll continue to do this.
Its longest this -- about the economy and jobs Romney -- right.
Karl Rove writes in the Wall Street Journal today about how it's amazing that Barack Obama is not crushing him at this point in national polls -- close.
We asked about this you know lot of really rich guys here in New York City a lot of people on Wall Street.
Four years ago they were big supporters of the president fast forward to today where -- they stand.
They have absolutely on the other direction and there's if there's a number of firms on the tip of one -- of his wanna start down there and they weren't totally Obama's camp.
And they were very enthusiast about hope and change all things who would occur.
They flipped around -- hope and change didn't occur man now he's attacking those very firms who were as big funders.
Was that cat thing was that the class warfare was it just all that anti business all of the above I think it's only about I'm and I think it's particularly and I business and -- jobs and those firms to be attacked by -- the CEO of the country.
It is not is not positive that is -- not positive business climate and you're not gonna really make improvements if everybody.
The guy that top sends out the wrong signal.
Just not gonna work well winning in your life you have to run across some very important -- people we keep hearing this term.
A lot of money's on the sideline.
Would have you experienced directly would have you heard.
I don't think the -- on the sidelines I mean I've been dialing for dollars that's why this handers in this condition and it's common them.
We are very very competitive with the president right now even though he has all those the the benefits of being the -- And I think we'll match and really.
Israel -- -- who's lived the American dream yourself.
Did you ever think that we come to a point in society.
Where living the American dream and aspiring to get there.
Would be a negative that it would be vilified where people would -- -- hide the fact that they've become successful I think it's.
So we itself.
Yeah deleterious to what we are as Americans we always -- about the so called Horatio Alger story when they got it comes up from.
Nothing -- -- -- from Pakistan buys buys an NFL franchise he came here with nothing not even a toolbox.
And he got he -- achieve the American dream that happens every day.
But you would even when we set that else is not a dream you got Tim Tebow.
Along with Mark Sanchez together how is it ever got to work.
I think they're both gonna add first of -- Mark Sanchez is the is the quarterback Tim Tebow adds an element I think that.
Defensive coordinators -- had a hard time dealing with -- -- gonna spend a lot of time planning.
For Tim Tebow -- for what we can do with his talent which is considerable.
And them I think that should help us -- -- bring in -- game on before you go I understand you've got a big announcement coming up very shortly dimension.
Yes I think a lot of Hubert you you remember what -- George Clooney and California we have eighteen million dollars -- million dollars will we have an answer we can't give it today.
But we have somebody that we think.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- If if I.
-- yeah we can't go to those kind of art bullet be tomorrow that we know -- I think they'll be early next week.
Early early next -- -- or somebody on par in the big Hollywood I would say we don't we don't like to be on par we like to be a little bit about all right well that sounds great.
