The president talked about these people being bitter cleaners.
-- at this particular county Boone county voted for Barack Obama back in 2008 they voted for him they believed in the hope and change he promised.
In 2000 well whenever they did the primary just a couple of months back.
The that county voted for the federal inmates instead of President Obama right you remember there's a bit wacky.
Well is this legal -- a politician do this.
He's doing it and he promised his -- but is he doing this because he's pushing natural energy.
He certainly is and and that's just what I can do and I just -- up prices and put people out of and it's just not working look.
