It's called the great destroyer Barack Obama's war on the republic.

Yes except I I reject the premise that he's personally popular I was I've been thinking about that because everybody's talking about it lately.
I think what people are are polled about that they know everybody says he's popular that's media narrative so -- answer no and the -- I'm gonna look like a jerk I don't -- out guidance polarizing American -- -- He says every the Republicans are hostage takers who says they weren't dirty air dirty water could go on by the way all welcome home morning.

Yes I just don't see that how that ultimately help so I don't agree that people want -- What do we get deciding what -- buy -- you know you know where we get that I think David -- to get that from people not being informed by the and it's do you do you really believe that every American.
Is informed about all the issues right now now we could argue it's because we're six months away from the election or because people just don't get informed and yes -- -- not his constituents that.
I'm talking about the people who are an expanded the government dependency class and he doesn't want but I will say again the -- and I think people are more informed.

Not he would face in the past -- every business person I talked to feels is so present Obama's anti business it is.
Blatantly and it is I get these people going to rant my quota and full blown out of full but not extensive -- -- shelves.
