On the back let's find out if you got anything wrong soap opera that's gonna TV's anti leading -- -- howry Greg.
-- doing great that's fantastic.
You don't -- -- -- buses.
Our Washington Post asking anybody be president -- -- -- for for the Washington Post not an actual wooden posts located in our nation's capital.
God I beg to differ -- you may have been thinking of diversity which was an old wooden ship used in the civil war era.
Not gonna get those two things -- TSA you win this round easy mistake.
-- -- -- he said it is hard to be president that's why shouldn't over promise things like curing cancer or maybe that you make rising of the ocean solo.
Yeah yeah yeah.
I think -- -- like you I don't.
Totally disagree with the premise that it's harder to be president now but James Toronto I had a good piece in the Wall Street Journal today we points out.
Similar things were said when Jimmy Carter was president and it's it's sort of weird that these things always come up when it's a democratic president and the widening.
Yeah that's how you know in the democratic administration just -- -- -- Well enough with that at.
-- -- -- -- -- -- I don't things now like I kid I -- the last.
Not if things like blogs and Twitter -- pretty -- you're told that what people you know have their voices heard so when people whine and moan about how those things make it more difficult to govern aren't they saying that things were just they were better when only politicians and journalists can be heard.
How much better depth.
Do you agree with those people I totally agree with them -- them he's -- commanders on Twitter -- -- and sees just what's going on out there.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Not kidding don't you think Margaret Kennedy says quote we may never see a two term president again is that just one of those silly things political consultants say so that you quoted.
I think maybe I mean people really think it's so partisan right now I've never seen the country is divided before -- I -- -- -- I mean you know.
Really -- people can go back generations and say that it's been very very divided in the past and as well.
That the civil war of 1948.
Did yesterday yeah footwear it was it was this -- is the north.
That's only fifty years ago right.
It's not I'll have to check that during the after that -- -- outlawed.
Ended slavery -- and I I don't know -- was -- fifty years -- diet was -- 94 in 1940s.
I'll I'll have to double check that it doesn't sound right there are always.
-- -- -- -- -- Remember -- wasn't born you know -- that the that was just defensive stuff but that's not only don't be driven not chew gum -- account during the show.
After a couple of Tucker gave me wanted to stick around so I don't and then I don't it's disgusting there.
Good -- -- -- from everything that was right -- guy more feel later but that one seemed to really stand out before the no doubt.
Hate talking you know I love you right now yeah and I know you got to defend your guy yeah I want to defend like -- it didn't it.
You can't do he can't do that that's wrong -- again now what's -- -- -- -- -- Reporters.
Exist to get information.
The president exists to -- information that won't help him politically.
Of course you know they're going to be moments where their cross purposes and this is one of them but it didn't it between adversarial journalism which obviously.
Right that I fully support.
And shouting out a question in the middle of the president giving a speech here here's the argument I would make that and I actually the -- -- -- especially for a product.
Can shift it -- He depositions -- the president will answer questions when he feels like in our view is no.
He has an obligation to answer our questions not just from the daily caller but from the press from the American people.
It's not good enough for the -- is that I just don't feel like right now -- -- -- other thing.
The president has been in erupted in the past six months thirteen times during speeches by people shouting out positive things from you all thirteen cases he -- to say yeah what do you make someone's done enough well what reporter asks a question -- -- wanna answer what all of a sudden.
The excitement for the people who are -- those things out weren't.
They weren't but -- -- every three shouting yeah we love you and and shout and interrupting someone did exactly what question with a legitimate question.
In one case the president likes it because it suits his political purposes and the other losing doesn't.
And that's to watch the press the white house press corps as a group.
Side with the president -- against a fellow reporter.
On an issue like this is nauseating to me but it's also instructive because it highlights the degree to which this group has been completely supported by the White House -- I just I mean.
I don't wanna go on ad nauseam on this but I I don't I don't think that's fair to say that just because you think you shouldn't interrupt the president in the middle of him giving a speech.
That you've -- -- borne by the White House I don't I I just what I would say that that did the White House never acts except in a way that it proceeds to help that -- will help the politically.
And that report shouldn't be a part of that and yet they are day after day.
Any what are you protecting the president -- perfect record of him.
He knows things this man not a lot.
But are just quickly -- -- while watching the guys who are not yet here's the thing that's not being reported Romney is larger point that he was actually trying to make he was comparing it was saying that private industry better than the government in in the bigger sound -- He was talking about how how much easier it is to order a sandwich at -- that it is to -- change your address at the post office button so he he actually was making a point.
Yes clumsily but if only we had read the entire story.
You know that's why it took a -- -- didn't think it's.
Were you aware of this amazing -- magical ability that you would use a touch that he created sandwiched.
Now what did it doesn't strike me is magical don't I don't I don't I don't think.
I don't have the same.
I I would have the same excitement this single you out about the pizza making machine but no I agree I if I went into a lot why if there were such a thing in new York and that's -- you what you're saying what I don't.
-- You -- the report that your reporters mocking him.
And it's like dude when was the -- you read a -- Now I think this is that they needed to President Bush with milk -- those milk with a scanner which they also blew something up that wasn't even about what they said it was about and they're doing and again and what I do grit you know how much -- -- -- -- -- Seventeen dollars and 34 -- absolutely right in the our Earth's population of seventeen million -- overweight Greg asked will too many milky ways and the planet hurtling towards the Milky Way yes we're in the -- -- -- You can't prove that -- from Karl if you show me -- picture.
I get -- every one of those pictures of all the black stuff with a little bit like miss each crapping you could have made that yourself not -- -- you see the actual thing what you I didn't take a thirty teachers within I I did I don't have a picture that but I did get and some of the latest satellite imagery of -- I don't know if you can see this yes America is on this side.
We are actually pushing the earth in Al my goodness yeah that's this is this is not -- that I think that that is absolutely he got.
You've convinced me not something you can't argue with satellite imagery yet -- the -- -- -- is better than circle though I prefer that.
The man who by the way aggressive -- America right Andy -- that I now I'm not even sure her collected about that.
And I think I should president.
Appeared he said that the conclusion that people need to exercise more is -- and -- you added that muscle weighs more than fat.
But they're not talking about weightlifting -- talking about walking -- satirist -- that you lose weight the idea being that.
-- increasing mass means higher energy requirements because it takes more energy to -- -- heavy body and even at rest a bigger body burns more energy.
Yeah TV -- right down to Nelson increases your -- caloric intake you know I agree on -- big big keep talking about environmental sustainability.
And you the food chain and all of that and they're now saying that Americans are consumed too much.
So exercise more.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Why does -- one of those professors explain this theory to a lion.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- There was -- more wasting everybody's time.
Thought -- if anybody who believes is a global food shortage hasn't been to a Costco I think the keyword is global.
They don't have cost goes everywhere though there are no -- and Africa it's one of the reasons a young Barack Obama moved here.
Are you sure about that yeah absolutely okay now what ever traveled outside our wonderful country.
-- you learned -- It is amazing people from other countries see costs go.
It really an up and take I I use and I believe you did for anything that -- -- check this out when he arrived the first place they go is that overwhelmed them.
When they're gonna do something.
And then you can actually pretty -- the leather hood though that.
-- -- -- -- -- I -- the researchers in the study they estimated the adult human population weighs in at 287 million tons.
And they said 3.5 million of that is due to obesity so that's not much more than 1% so once again it's the 1% fall yet.
We've done right by the way that I study was done by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine -- that's -- legit to you guys.
Med school -- living with his mom -- -- troubled medicine sounds like fun but when you think about it's probably really really really dangerous military -- it's malaria -- -- -- I can't take really scary yeah this guy like iPods and staying open in -- get into your -- lot of people named Clyde went to that school apparently.
Really journalist in England so I just assumed.
Probably I'll regularly handsome yes.
It's easy to becoming military dictatorship I gotta say I'm pretty your entire discussion to all of you of the subject is why they hate us.
Yet you had there they're trying to win their freedom yet -- talking about out.
They need to have a military -- yeah -- Eli and Greg talking about the battles and bill talking about the clash about would you retire after the extent of this subject.
It also evidence of the puzzles rather than it hasn't been able to do anything yet so before we judge in new ways to demand that part now I'm just found that out educate them -- did you remember the -- -- I get a -- amazingly an amazingly it is one of the primary reasons why we did this to -- yes yes.
Actually -- primaries -- likely -- this that was an agency story we're going to pitch it that bros before foes -- -- after hose was and innovative.
Wait to -- the story on them I can.
Thank you watch.
Thank you -- was a -- right yeah I wrote it.
They just changed its.
Can he said rose before hose which made no sense I said no broad after a guy say job growth not -- and it easier for us.
I suppose not mostly chapter is clearly indicate -- I think we can all agree you know on keywords you could not have come up without without a -- coming up the original.
Can all agree that after is the keyword there.
It's not my friend map.
They write jokes right it's.
-- -- -- you find the right -- judges -- you don't just throw words at the screen.
And I hope that it's mildly amusing and -- -- you have the perfectly crafted joke which is you know what I did.
As evidenced by that and again you're welcome I'm kinda go away.
That coming up stories that.
