Infamous or famous famous and Calder -- The new book that's an excellent if if the book now in paperback prior to your -- book will be out.
In a month or two but -- have a liberal mob is endangering.
My liberal radical over the radio where went to thank you for acknowledging that.
But that obviously in the heat of the election season this is a good thing and had both the paperback of your other book and get a -- into an elephant about next time hopefully.
I know you've been praising Paul Ryan but you said you know it's -- -- last year's that if we don't.
Run Chris Christie Romney will be the nominee and he will lose to Obama I'm guessing you've changed your point of view and.
I mean my point of view few months later prediction as Yogi Bear -- that are really hard especially about the future.
To -- how would you hear it out beef Packers word that word still don't want our Pawlenty and Gingrich and people ended up not even running like Mitch Daniels.
Rodney was not your first choice and -- What -- he wasn't my first I think I do think you put the country needs right now even more than Chris Christie my first choice was it was.
My only choice actually two years ago.
-- -- -- But hopefully exclusively actually because it's very very hard to take out an incumbent presidents and -- would mark but the campaign event.
That the president -- I think -- he would make a great president.
And I just thought -- is such as the taking on the public sector unions have been going around the Internet like wildfire he just created such excitement.
I thought -- very hard to take out Obama and -- -- get star like -- he could do it but I don't think it's gonna be that as part of I thought it was going to be.
Yeah I think Obama's gonna lose -- Welcome.
No I'm not I'm not.
Particular market happy about the history has just let this stay right here.
You and then you sit and Romney has to pick Christie or he's gonna lose throwing.
No I did not but.
In fact with vice president.
Or vice presidential choices I have.
Our guests those are I have never predict and I've never lobbied for one that ended up being vice president both Democrats and Republicans I thought.
Little bomb went and picked him team does that make statements and I'm not Kerry did it take Mark Warner -- -- it would have been a better choice.
Containment that's in Kenya -- DI.
That's Nadal -- -- -- be Mark Warner in 2004 now he picks a pretty -- Dot -- or so but you know I've gone through this enough that this plot becomes the vice president.
I just don't have a and investigate apple want to pick try and I knew Romney would do the right thing but -- the he's Smart he thinks things through.
And it's so -- Brian did a fantastic.
-- -- like the polls have not been up in -- the polls are about as low as it ever been with a vice presidential choice.
There's -- but even Palin got a bump but has been no bump with this guy.
Well I think that will day.
What is great about Ryan it's not appeal one thing where we have a -- at the top of the -- -- and we just have to have some.
McCain was a loser.
Remember I was for Hillary.
Yeah I usually do said that about -- -- I -- holding -- -- victory up on TV set up.
But but but you really said that because you didn't really want Hillary to be resonance and I.
And Hillary or Obama and I was taken Hillary over McCain policies about the things that we -- applicable for the big deal.
Actually gave me something to before because she was dynamic and energetic and a genuine conservative.
So -- so what came did not play in this is different Bryant create.
-- an energy that that highlight everything that is good about Romney's.
But he took these companies that we're going bankrupt it's what his profession to pick failing companies and turn them around often permanently and.
And often with government money in tax breaks -- and the well but that's but -- does that and Ryan's family is wealthy because his great grandfather started.
A company called Ryan -- -- that build roads and build railroad -- the government.
Got a good government contracts he got government can't deliver it over to the government either running -- -- would be rich today.
We we do not have -- billion dollar federal budget because they're so busy just building roads and bridges.
Whenever whenever you know concerned getting concerned about these these analysts programs are there repeat for the -- what's the first thing we get older well not a fireman.
Don't want the firemen we -- the police sweep off the -- don't want art therapy.
Well I'm I'm just saying that that his government contractor got these people really haven't.
I can't government we are again about 90% of -- -- -- is never it never that aspect of government that you guys hold off but.
But witnesses they'll work.
Now the problem with the Romney Ryan isn't Ryan's got policies and Romney doesn't and when Ryan is Romney's asked -- -- he says well I have my own plan but if delivered to -- They're running if -- told anybody what -- Is -- lot of let -- he thought during the debate I mean to you OK -- just made in this business is well what's the point that I I've seen that -- that he could not on this and it just -- pretty easy to make.
You get an administration and it goes through he got a bill would have been voted on about how often motor on -- -- now because of the conference and be specific.
-- But the basic outline -- similar -- both cases what you have is.
Medicare aren't going bankrupt people or 45 years or younger they Beaumont house Medicare that the fact.
Both Bryant and and -- they would preserve.
Medicare apathy exists for anyone 55 years to enable -- that yeah we'll start -- voucher program but it's -- you -- are not important.
By the actor -- -- they'll eventually do -- Medicare and because they wanna do we with a bomb like here.
They would not preserve Medicare because there are things in -- which help preserve Medicare which -- go away quickly go away if they do away with -- obamacare -- Not -- preserving.
Medicare for people 55 or older so -- He really is the room -- -- changes to Medicare by about that yet they still out.
No they say hello this is a -- that the right thing now you talk a lot.
And even Hannity show lately lately -- gonna valuables lying all that stuff.
But the -- on the right is that Obama is cutting 700 billion dollars and -- Medicare he's not he's slowing the rate of growth.
Which is the same thing Republicans have voted for.
Know what you're masculine -- the -- Romney plan and right now.
People are in Medicare cut from Medicare they're going to help small reimbursements to doctors we already have doctors dropping out.
The Medicare system not boy of course George Tiller out -- and and Warren Buffett and talk about on him because he would still be able to go to they're trying to live listening on -- person who rely on Medicare.
They are not going to be able to go to the Doctor Who went to an American medical school apple to change.
Underwear -- -- -- a matter of fact yes less payment to doctors and providers but the providers and doctors because of obamacare will have more.
Customers and so they gonna make up the money gets more people will be in the system that's what's gonna happen.
Okay work harder for less money yeah we -- nothing else.
Not -- -- actually there's gonna be preventive care so people don't get sick in the first place that's part of what obamacare does -- have to deal with the disaster diseases that's alert.
Yet it's going to be fantastic -- the impact food service people are running our medical care actually approve it so much.
And we have to go through anything that is provided by the government.
Will cost more and be worth anything that is provided by the private sector over time will be better.
And cheaper from cell phones to flat screen TVs -- haircut that manicure.
And I think -- I mean -- the other idea we keep hearing on and on and it said he sees what.
Sure I'm glad you're watching a liberal channel it's gonna let -- Larry and thank god and.
I think -- they say yes but what about certain what about the -- of the ways you can people who can't figure out.
You start -- of the free market and free enterprise this stupid to be we brighter on other people making Smart choices the and as importantly you have to be Smart to walk into a grocery store and -- have multiple options and eighty different varieties of I'll warn you when the producer that you get Soviet front line.
-- her but paperback that would -- money.
And Coulter is the author and have a little love is endangering American future be very scared to people like me.
You talk about the free riders and Randall thank you what there's gonna kill my credibility.
-- -- Ole miss because it would be better there -- more liberal like you you're not engaging in the normal attributes and the ones I described in my book.
You do that on MSNBC you -- arguing what may.
You are not throwing out you know -- and wild allegations.
This debate would be much more productive without it most liberal -- techniques of using slogans -- -- ignited.
-- in your next book which is usually has a single word title meant something bad about liberals in the title on an asterisk at my -- below and then I'll have a until well and -- -- free riders the last segment.
Exactly what obamacare -- -- meeting with people the system you are doing the wave with -- free -- -- we are now all paying extra money for -- -- for people who don't have -- so what Obama does it does away with that but getting people in the system just like Romney did in Massachusetts which is the opposite of socialism.
-- the free rider issue -- describing its three riders on the magnificent of capitalism you don't need to be Smart under capitalism.
The only helpful and you're capable of mine are the ones that keep getting better and cheaper because of capitalism because people who look up.
I hate working out those consumer reports things I can't walk into any cell phone store and get a fantastic cell -- flat screen TV -- gonna grow into a -- -- But somehow when it comes with something that have already been partially socialized like health care.
People freeze up but the idea being given a voucher and making their own choice to -- you don't have a practice system available and we can -- other people will be competing for a while competing for your business and making the from doing a comparison shop.
We've moved away from socialism and if Obama -- his way that would have been actually a public plan to compete with private insurance and that -- have even -- more competition the same thing you conservatives say you'll likely you wouldn't go -- -- I -- like the post offices of the competition with the against us but.
The government can compete is like putting -- -- on the scale as they -- with the book dot.
Do you know it's illegal to do to deliver.
All a couple of mail yeah but not to be allowed to be called mail if you -- -- -- up doing it.
-- or FedEx com before before it left with some.
Special -- that's that's -- hard -- the exception for UPS and federal -- -- actually just like have to be delivered the next day or guarantee intimidate.
And we you know the most out of almost developer -- in America.
Do you know that there is supposedly going -- -- Republicans -- of -- had to be paid 75 years at the get -- story with that we wouldn't have to worry about closing the post office on Saturdays because Republicans have this ridiculous rule about -- attention.
-- it's very quick one of my friend doctor in New York he's on their -- -- -- -- on the third -- told me last week via elevator was broken.
On every when the doctors the nurses that people delivering.
You know medical samples -- devices the patient.
But secretary UPS FedEx failed blocked up the stairs halfway through the day he's dead.
Where the mail people.
And well not -- up this stay here it's not that bad but Beck didn't like -- Accent now that's a cult of liberals -- bit right that's a must been a liberal guy.
Yet the government got no.
What the government didn't assume you'll be running that -- -- be -- Bobby and you get you.
I wanna be -- got me that's me am -- on the -- -- that I ask you about that's.
Andrea Saul then I think you said the other day -- and result got on television.
And said in response of that horrible patent super pac and that I don't like.
That we agree probably on that but it was the Obama campaign it was a super pac and and Andrea -- several of that woman and that I had just had massive -- Massachusetts Health -- to be alive today and of course.
You at that point sit over some people's enemy the united -- that Obama.
Rather run we just lost the election and you said -- -- -- -- said that was fired nobody should get any money to the Romney campaign what's changed.
We think it changed I think I sufficiently made her name -- my point is -- it's not just Romney we have Republicans have a real problem with the people I think spokesman your spokesman is supposed to.
So to speak -- that you what not it's not your spokesman you should be apologizing for and saying what he really meant slide as it's not just drop it happens all the time of the problem of I don't think that Nicole Wallace.
It would managing.
-- and I think people -- Yeah yeah.
Think -- and our fantastic.
-- Our reads -- front lines like even I never get -- -- And John Sununu they're magnet but I think Andrea solve some of the other Romney campaign spokesman they could serve the cause.
By picking up the laundry for -- You know don't let them be well rested so they get.
And -- stand by your statement that nobody should give to the Romney campaign it'll Andrea Saul is fired.
I don't think you'll see her on TV.
And I do not think you'll see anyone quoting her anymore without people giggle.
I do you wanna tell you make your next book didn't tell us what -- is.
It's -- really good I can't really talk much about it now except that.
I didn't really good.
Well I guess -- the reviews there and it's early.
It's always challenging and a pleasure to suck you in thinking amendment and current thought you Allentown than.
