Always have going to companies like -- -- -- The inspector general says contracts for students.
Obama is giving tax Payer money today.
-- -- We're scared of an Obama presidency and I have to tell you he is a decent person and a person.
That you do not have to be cheered.
As present United States.
Does -- show for us to get to doesn't have a person to walk you may have ruined but there's something wrong that there's maybe we.
Maybe excesses and -- Well it's still pretty long web videos out today one from the Romney campaign -- from the Obama campaign this on the day that Mitt Romney.
Will likely later tonight.
Clinch the nomination to become the Republican nominee reaching the magic number of 1144 is also.
Holding a fund raiser with Donald Trump -- Donald Trump under attack from the Obama campaign and the Donald speaking out on that very issue about birth certificates.
-- earlier today.
There's a lot of questions as to the authenticity of the birth certificate.
You couldn't believe it or you don't have to believe it but certainly there are many many questions.
Not every little -- My guess is they don't agree with everything -- But I didn't get 511%.
All right so where are we with this obvious that the White House put -- the long form birth certificate.
April last year and the state of Hawaii certified that bill.
There's been speechless it.
Yeah I guess that's sort of let Donald Sheppard gone away about a year ago in areas back there and have not the first significant I thought I got away a while ago.
I -- nothing ever goes away in today's American politics.
At least look at least the Romney campaign is trying to focus on actual substance of public policy issue which is president Obama's deep commitment he talks about all the time to green energy.
The programs that he set up was proud to set it was part of the stimulus.
A lot of the money's been wasted in some of that has been moved maybe corset waist and gone to democratic -- that is legitimate issue to raise I think -- -- -- a broader context.
By the Romney campaign -- just to kind of gotcha and he should explain why the president's -- understanding of how to stimulate the economy is wrong but it's legitimate policy issue.
Well I do I mean I think everybody just ask the question what is.
With Donald Trump in the -- and I think the answer is that Mitt Romney wants to prove that he has appeal.
To people who have in fact embrace this French notion that you know birthers that that Obama was not born in the United States not born in Hawaii.
But it has I think splits on people bill crystals -- George -- I think people just saying you know what is the ups and why.
Would you be doing this -- -- -- or at least hounded by the campaign some affected by Donald Trump making calls robo calls in states where there's.
Blue collar voters that perhaps the Romney campaign feels they need to reach out to Michigan Ohio -- not necessarily solely on on this one issue.
-- pulpit to again reach out to people who are.
Very conservative and who throughout the Republican primary process viewed Mitt Romney as too moderate and and weren't convinced that they were gonna support.
-- Well maybe this is Romney trying to.
-- association would trump trying to show toughness.
Obama shows it by killing the terrorists by remote control it's an odd day today in the news.
For these two things happened at once I think wind came near -- their truth here rather uninteresting and -- came in the proximity of the truth I think.
There was there there is some a notion that this does.
Associate him and I don't think he wants associated with the friends.
About the birthers because I think he knows that is toxic I think he simply wants to appeal to that kind of the toughness.
That trump does he speaks bluntly and he has a following -- -- -- -- the robo calls in Michigan helped Romney in the primary campaign.
But this is that toxic I think you should be a one shot deal.
Do the event gather there and don't go back to it if you Romney.
But there's all this focus today bill on this connection between Romney and -- But remember the lack of focus about.
President Obama and Bill Maher and the money he gave the million dollars in the super pac Bill Maher of course -- medianews.
Said some pretty extreme things from the left.
You have Jon Corzine the fat former.
Democratic governor of New Jersey who is still bundling money and lost a lot of money for.
MF global so.
I guess that the back and forth today the focus on trump is pretty interest.
It is but I I don't believe any of this remove any actual voters on either side -- and president Obama's present us it's a three and a half years he has -- Record which people can either approve or disapprove.
Mitt Romney is a serious guy when people are getting to know and almost everyone will know very very well by the end of this campaign he will have a platform a policy -- platform.
Which people leave -- like or dislike I don't you can disqualify either Barack Obama or a Mitt Romney.
Because they are unfortunately supported by or even doing fundraisers -- -- -- even hanging around with.
People who were less than fully -- Don't be careful -- independent voters who could get thrown off by this that's why I think both of you say get away from it.
That is it for the panel but state.
