And he later ran for office he was the first one legged man to get elected in West Virginia in this country.
That's the kind of -- I got it right hey you know I let me congratulate.
-- -- You -- And you know it's amazing how you all plus now wakes up.
Nobody rolls out of -- and do what happens -- the White House when.
-- And you probably think I was.
Right thing -- -- things.
But I really dispute -- you look happy birthday anniversary on the power play.
Great all the different things you're doing -- -- different.
Different platforms and I'm honored to be part of -- we view it.
And those are people who are supposed to be my friends.
Many thanks to Charlie hurt and James resident Jim Angle keeping keeping us in perspective as we celebrate our one year anniversary and this is power play.
And it is time for fun I think -- cameras let us.
-- so let's have some fun.
And I thought it would be good sense the Internet agrees Charles that you have the biggest brand in politics today.
That we would just let you tell us what was going to happen for the next year because if you do that.
We can save a lot of time we can focus more on.
Doing what we like and don't have to worry so much for watching the news.
So the first question.
Mitt Romney and Barack Obama win if power -- makes it to two.
Who will be president of the United States.
You -- I think the risks of this and you did Syria.
-- and yes you are you guys -- healthy he's got all my shots I mean there's some -- that's probably going on over here but that's just whatever I'll check leave periodically on.
-- the only about if I really could predict I wouldn't be here idea.
Yeah in the -- I am enjoying my winnings from the start we stipulate that I -- give you.
My prediction but it's a little bit of hope over experience.
-- do you think Romney can win.
I think Republicans have been demoralized and they think you know we lost -- nine run lead.
There was I think he wins I think he was narrowly.
And I think.
It's going to be a long night good IDC -- -- okay so you're you're going Nero probably met around -- around me okay control of the United States senate.
That I think.
I think it goes 5149.
Republicans didn't it -- been really much more there's so many more democratic -- We've blown if you if you -- candidates I do think we get.
We'll get three -- four I'd say fifteen when he could be 5050.
And then of course depends whose presence when vice president rubio comes into actually doing it and Andrew who.
Well Mitt Romney has picked as his running I think it'll be I would pick rubio I think he'll think Portman.
Because he's a risk averse guy -- and he wants to double down on -- -- -- Is that very popular amazingly it's that is the most popular -- -- whatever -- actually back in the outfield issues.
Now frank and -- Wants to know this.
What what is it that would keep Romney from gaining the presidency and he stimulus casinos that your smuggler he says and I don't mean enough votes -- well.
It could be that simply his personality.
I -- Obama wins on personality.
And there's no denying that he's.
He doesn't have the -- -- -- thirty still engaging and I think.
I think that would be it -- the -- still tell a lot.
The -- -- what -- Reagan over Carter and what he showed he wasn't a war Monday was no really he knew something.
And he was genial and he when he said you know there you -- again it was over.
If you're a referendum on Obama he'd lose the same way a referendum on Carter's you'd lose good.
Glad that you have to reach a threshold to tell you you know can you be trust of the presidency to people want you on their TV for a whole term.
-- -- I think we'll meet that threshold but if he turns out to be stiff.
Or -- he comes around as he -- cold.
And Obama runs that he he doesn't care about the middle class and all the polls.
Romney's way that he cares about you middle class and all that stuff that you caring election Obama will win -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Call.
Total combos wants to know if Romney as you have predicted where does -- -- do you see him doing anything about government unions is that an issue that he would -- he talked pretty tough about what happened up in Wisconsin but I don't think the federal government -- sent -- They don't have.
Anything like that they don't have collective bargain apparently don't have compulsory dues payments and federal government unions.
They're mostly mostly that didn't -- drag that they are on federal spending.
Is that we have to pay people to run the union.
Not exactly know what I -- -- he'll make a good shot at cutting government spending.
I do believe you may not be ideologically you instinctively conservative.
I think for him conservatism as a second language news -- -- well.
But he's an honorable man he says -- platform I think there's going to be strong conservatives in the house and the senate I think.
The program he's running the -- -- and other things she will inactive because it that's what he thinks he has a duty to do.
So -- too worried about the.
All right last question just a few seconds left this is from can you read this I can.
Do you think Hillary Clinton.
Who replaced Joseph Biden on Obama's -- -- children two and sixty.
Take it to the bank.
He's right because certainly the big heat the big dog is -- -- doing everything he can't.
To set the table for the more moderate wing of the Democratic Party.
And Charles were so grateful that he made time for us today it's your happy -- I can't think of a better way to start.
