He didn't -- you tell people to talk to hand -- getting a new radio just right now -- -- I thought I.
After playing Harold Bryant yes.
When we talk about the life -- Brian.
Well this is a portion of our program the Internet program where we kinda review what we've done today and -- show all right it was a big -- We had -- -- beyond that we had -- Donald Trump on telling Donald you know given all sorts of advice Donald Trump the great thing about him.
And that we wanted to correct that we of one of those stars that Newhart show called the five on Dana Perino was celebrating its first anniversary of this -- runaway hit the Mitt Romney.
We asked them -- release more tax returns and and Sally and Sally right but don't you think you'd be a good idea to do that though.
You never know it -- weren't you the one who pointed out the Ronald regularly -- one year whether it was him that was that was.
Now no chance that nickname was trump and Romney said that that John Kerry only released one and John McCain in at least one but but they -- -- so.
I don't know guys you know it's if he doesn't have to -- -- but I think politics is perception and maybe there's something -- it I don't.
I don't know maybe that there's got to be a reason why he might as apple one thing that his tax returns if you haven't you know in the financial disclosure things that he has released reveal is that he gives a ton more in charity.
Then the people on the democratic.
And so -- -- good for him and that's what.
But that's not what people would be looking for -- another look at the big number and it is a big number.
I was listening on the radio yesterday where they were talking about when you look at the amount of money that.
Mitt Romney is paid in taxes you know -- This about it folks are trying to make it seem like he didn't pay enough in taxes.
He winds up actually paying more than 80% of the people in the United States when it comes to taxes and big chunk of that is because -- semi NY.
Just release -- I -- -- I just as just about and it's starting nose pretty much what's in these tax returns so if they're gonna hit it for some they're gonna do it anyway that eventually they're gonna get around.
-- -- -- irony it's a great point might as well get him Bill Kristol said.
This release of -- overweight if the deal with it let it be you know in the rearview mirror -- you don't capitalism and jobs and the economy.
And that that's not a bad strategy.
I think the other central issue though is is whether or not.
Mitt Romney can continue to to focus only on the job situation in a Rush Limbaugh made a very interest in point last week -- the week before that.
Any other president with this kind of unemployment rate has not been reelected but he doesn't believe that this is like any other time.
And I would tend to agree with them -- that because we're so close to that tipping point of people being on the government dole more than 50%.
It is totally different than in past times I think it the argument has to be more than just jobs in the economy to be able to break through.
With this president because if you are one of those receiving these benefits you're not gonna vote for Mitt Romney you know every -- you're assuming that the people who were on the dole are gonna vote for Barack Obama's many of them don't vote well fortunately enough of them do to keep the polls neck and neck right now I mean I I I.
I just I just don't think you can say that all of those people don't vote when almost half the country's I -- I'm just.
And you can't count on everybody I know I think what's gonna happen is it's gonna come down to the independents and right now the independents they -- the food fight and I don't think they like that they wanna be reminded okay.
I think Dana Perino said you know.
After September after the conventions.
People are gonna take a look okay in my head is clear -- back from vacation OK what are you gonna do to create jobs.
All right and what about you.
And then when they seem on the debate stage they make it and probably -- the most -- Gretchen were talking about this in the hallway when the most I guess interest in sound bytes of the hole.
Campaign would came against me yesterday or Saturday when President Obama was in -- -- was a Friday.
-- Virginia saying hey you're small business owner you work hard you're successful but it's not your fault I mean it's the government's fault.
-- a lot of you -- to have the opportunity to him to be successful big that's crazy talk that's the -- -- -- act like you said if our Romney that one.
Would be frightened -- throughout the rest of the campaign this is what President Obama wants more big government -- -- you want that's one of those off the prompter competence may be.
It was but it was it sort of like the assumption that if you drive over a bridge that was paid for by the government taxpayer dollars to get to your job to run your private business that you -- The federal government -- for acres six as.
I mean you.
Debt that is crazy talk -- those people who who who will run and owned small businesses right now the number one thing they would tell you about why they're successful because they worked really hard.
You what's crazy -- if that -- the case.
You'd find a way to get over the bridge to get your job.
Court -- -- to take a boat or private company will put a boat over -- or they'll put -- all wrote over there.
And you find a way to get over there without government help I -- I don't buy it is that we need to government of -- our success in business so in other words what the president is saying is it if you succeed in business you could think the government.
Will then if you don't succeed can you blame the government.
So I blame bush now and coolers but like any other government -- Right that's up five minutes twelve seconds that -- after the show show for today there's got to go I'll be back tomorrow.
Believe it -- that's a great day we'll see him.
