Senator Claire McCaskill at a Missouri the latest Democrat ditching the party's convention in Charlotte but.
I she's still ordinary lawmakers -- McCaskill had a key speaking role.
At the 2008 convention and campaigned extensively for then candidate Barack Obama.
George Pataki is the former governor New York he's been doing.
Any of these conventions are you doing good morning more popular figure they -- ideas that I think -- matters I think what it really reflects is the president is becoming more more isolated not just from.
The American people but also from some in his own party and I'm not surprise because.
What is happening in in Washington is they're not running the country out of the White House they're running a campaign.
And unless you're gonna benefit from that campaign you're gonna keep your distance so I'm not surprised but I cast is import a hurricane sticks out so as you mentioned senator from -- for -- -- now -- -- -- Democrats are not gonna win West Virginia anyway and they're probably not going to win the search so is it well.
You don't think so.
I don't think McCain won that state -- what was it 3000 votes in 2000 yes but I when you look at where the economy is today when you look at what senator McCaskill is doing and I think that the people of Missouri are are ready for for real change not hope you're well we have a we have a group of all the members of congress who will not -- -- Charlotte in early September -- obvious the ones we know about right now I don't know if this is substantial or not because they Castro say hey I I skipped it 2014.
-- because I was running for reelection do you buy that spat on by -- at all I mean she has been one of the closest identified senators with Obama since the convention four years ago mind you said she gave the speech.
And she can run from his campaign.
But she can't -- from Obama -- voting for Dodd-Frank voting for the stimulus and being their time and again and I think they're just trying now.
But during the campaign season it's not about doing what is right but trying to save your hide -- and I think that's.
A disservice to the people of all -- all the pictures we just put on the screen they -- up for reelection as -- hold onto that distinction as -- -- my next point.
Because port George Bush get Saint Paul and 2008.
He appeared by video conference with John McCain Lovie doesn't running for things to tell me and that that convention was run by and the McCain people and he was still president at the time which is.
That should take a little bit easier time of -- of the list perhaps grows between Allen Charlie -- we'll see together.
On health care.
Whether the supremes do with this hour.
I find it hard to believe that this law can be found unconstitutional.
Obviously it's very hotly debated but I think when you -- all the oral oral argument in the spring court.
He -- justices across the spectrum saying how can force the American people to buy something they don't want.
That has never happened before I would be stunned.
If they don't find at least the individual mandate unconstitutional.
And if that is unconstitutional.
-- I believe it is.
And I think the whole premise for Obama care falls apart.
All of it.
Well some -- vote may well be legally in place but as a practical matter.
It's going to be a nightmare trying to run -- health care system where the key funding mechanism.
The centerpiece of the whole operation is unconstitutional which is talking to judge about this -- -- -- it -- and so.
-- is it possible I think a lot of people think tomorrow as the days went and sat.
Is it really.
I think tomorrow's the day the supreme -- likely to rule but it's not going to be sent her -- and what's this scenario that problems that.
But that depends largely on the election -- -- Obama.
Can't run away from money spent the first two years -- -- administration focusing on instead of the economy and jobs he's got to try to defend it -- -- it back together.
And we've seen him time and again use executive powers of extraordinarily so I think he will try to.
Hold it together until November but even he has got to realize it cannot work and -- -- Have to pass a new law if this is -- so tomorrow is significant but it's not the end.
It that -- going to be a political battle either way and I happen to believe that they will throw out the individual mandate and I think that makes it extremely unlikely.
That anything other than dramatic change and Obama care.
That moves or read that's masters -- that because you have a political battle you -- are gonna you have an economic battle because of what businesses are doing -- -- happy legal battle that made all this -- well.
Governor thank you thank you bill George protecting and you -- and --
