Good -- we've witnessed here.
You know the guy whose hair looks like cotton candy I yes nice hairdo.
-- at a plus or minus.
-- -- I think you want a big tent as big a -- as you can possibly pitch in the beginning of your campaign.
And trump has a following to -- knee and -- to you are both of you who.
United sort of an incredible -- is sort of an incredible following it but he does have a big following and why not get on board he and by the way.
Obama's campaign is kind of idiotic and in supposing that because Romney is willing to appear -- a stage -- Donald Trump that is embracing his birth or considerations all and that's baloney and and that's just office do it is stupid and I think they need to guess you but but you know -- is didn't.
You know disregarded that from the beginning and so that I and that's a tempest in the teapot I -- I think Americans are so tired of all these little.
-- of people are playing you know that I take -- It is -- I don't -- or significantly wanna go back to the real issues -- and that's exactly right.
Am -- gonna Yemen going to be and where can I keep my home.
You know and I I asked our brain room to look into this.
Over the weekend and they they found that beginning with the -- that.
President Obama took office to now 572.
Thousand jobs have been lost.
That's not a good record -- Is it.
It's he has.
Unfortunately the biggest and strongest talking points that he has -- on foreign policy where nobody votes were on that issue.
-- -- it is going to be very difficult for him talk about the economy is if the markets going down if what's happening in Europe starts to affect the market negatively.
A lot of those factors that are beyond his control but also.
Just and I think Romney touched on this in the speech that we just heard.
What is what's happening with small businesses the lifeblood of the economy.
What's really happening to them and if he's not able to really weave together -- really good narrative and interestingly enough the his former auto czar and and -- Barbara from New York saying that you have to have some balance here.
-- -- -- -- -- The president does say he's Z he's grown in the job market by one point five million jobs well look he's talking about private sector jobs and -- right that's where we need growth.
There is no question that the rebound in employment from the depths of this recession is way under par and it's been undernourished in my -- partly.
Because of -- the energies and rain -- and disk -- population that came about because we spent an entire year arguing about health care.
I think looking back that is -- just incredibly big mistake for the Obama administration and if it's not.
Oh absolutely I mean.
It put it put the fear of god in the small businesses among others people were saying we can't hire we don't know what the cost to park.
Hiring is going to be because the rules -- they change that overnight.
It it this was a huge miscalculation.
I think because.
I think because legitimately he felt it was a very big concern and it was a very big concern but that was not be -- six months into his administration.
The concern was getting the economy back on its feet and a you know unfortunate we just haven't done that I I if he had gone -- just to please you know focus off the main point.
I think his focus forgive me was more about building his legacy than about what was doing right.
You guys -- -- things I've heard a lot of people say that particularly -- accident not connected to politics.
And I and I and I go back and forth about whether or not I believe that I do think to some extent.
He had some small record of accomplishment before they started health care but you're right.
Spending a year on it it's sort of can change the conversation focused a lot on it.
And was that it did he give himself enough time to actually begin to talk about the economy.
That's the -- to two -- really divided the country and in that you're someone who ran on bringing the country -- we didn't want answered because the Supreme Court still has trying to throw up on the screen because we're day after veterans day -- Memorial Day candidates support among veterans president says Obama.
Of the next governor Romney 58%.
-- Basil that's a tough one for the president business.
This is again going back to foreign policy particularly since he's been so successful in farm policy he'll get credit for bringing troops home.
And it doesn't seem like the a lot of veterans to support his policies a lot of it could be due to cuts that he proposed.
In the Defense Department.
But I believe that has a lot of it but also I don't know if any Democrat recently has really.
Been able to get a tremendous amount of support from from the military current informers we've -- I think that's kind of a traditional.
Republican stronghold for sure but.
Your right I mean it's kind of ironic that here's the fellow who did get Osama bin Laden and who is winding down this very unpopular war.
It did in Iraq and is in Afghanistan but I think from the military's point of view debut that as.
May be retrenchment idol and and I think the budget cuts are extremely unpopular.
Had the president's stepped up with a better plan for cutting -- -- deficit.
I don't think -- have these automatic huge cuts in defense going forward that looks very problematic to me and I'm sure it does to people in the military.
Let me just run through a couple of things here a comment from Charles Reece.
You know our country is overcome a lot we have elected the first black.
African American president and I hope that America -- like the first member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints.
Obviously referring to.
Mitt -- Is that an issue do you think we.
His face you Romney's -- -- -- I you know I don't really know it hasn't been to my mind it hasn't been discussed that much.
There is an element who thinks of the Mormon faith as being a -- to see I think that's right word that it isn't really christianity and so forth.
I think that Americans are.
Pretty tolerant and I think also the record of most mormons.
This tournament ridiculous generalization but they know that mormons are extremely.
Conservative in their life habits they save money -- they work hard.
I mean gosh you know what's not to like about that right in terms of its influence on the on the public so I I don't know I don't know what do you think.
Yeah I don't think it you know it's -- of I don't think it it's been played much of it is certainly been a lot of conversation about it but I don't think it's really reason -- the as a real issue that he's had to consistently draster camping he's got on the stuff he's cut Konami hasn't addressed.
But you know it's it's interesting that I actually don't think it's been that much of that much of a concern or.
Wear him out there you run through it just because I find these really -- -- Rasmussen Reports polls.
Do you when President Obama agree on just about everything fourteen -- -- 32%.
Say agree -- most important issues disagree on most important issue point 3%.
Disagree on just about everything -- pieces from this and the insurance through his.
Why don't make of this.
Well I would follow up with a poll that came out last week from the Wall Street Journal -- NBC.
Added weight into the pole on page fourteen I think it was that went through.
Your view of how Obama has affected.
Health care negatively which was pretty astonishing foreign affairs negatively mean I don't know that was a really interesting thing to me so.
I think what it comes back to.
Is that he is not aligned.
With the country terribly well.
But he continues to be likable and I think the biggest risk for this president right now.
Is in this very nasty campaigning and advertising that is rolling out of both campaigns.
I think he runs the risk of becoming less likable and that could -- Disinterested you know I -- a different a slightly different take on it I I attribute this to oddly enough.
As great as he was a -- He has had a really tough time communicating and successes.
As an executive.
And -- -- is that there's a new once there that a lot of folks who.
That are not invisible -- kind of -- right campaigning and governing a very different different functions and I just I find that there are.
It seems to me that there are enough successes there that he can talk about it and talk about it away.
That's believable to -- majority of American voters however.
The the just don't do that in I don't know fits with it's if it's a function of them not liking retail politics.
Or liking to go out and do all of these -- -- you know the clintons were extraordinary period that.
But I just I don't see that and it's it's enhanced mobile communication issues aren't.
