Course exactly seven years ago this week included on its path of course the state of Mississippi.
Dangerous right now is the former governor of the great state of Mississippi who led that state during Katrina and beyond Haley Barbour who -- -- -- but I notice that it's probably just the governor -- -- from Mississippi win Maria was just talking about the whether you were taken a close look at the track.
It looks like it's going to be a little to the west of Mississippi but still there's going to be a storm surge.
Yeah and then people don't realize or maybe -- do.
Hurricanes rotate counterclockwise which -- that the bad wind -- in the northeast quarter.
Right so if it's a little too aware of -- that's almost the worst thing did you have good equipment has taken this big right across right.
Jackpot and how -- the rebuilding of Mississippi how all that come into play now.
If in fact there is storm surge or any damage.
Aggression if the winds pick that will be huge difference for Carlos we also she's 2000 units a house -- -- -- -- be golf coach Walton built before World War II.
Everything has been rebuilt according to the new hurricane code it's much stronger.
If the war rises that still don't -- much if she stood it used to get flooded in this -- try to -- That her -- incredibly unpredictable it looks right now watch it's mostly rain and rising war.
Yeah not a lot of -- -- win and not home -- sure when we booked you a couple of weeks go to be here today we were just gonna talk politics.

It's -- I'm I'm curious.
What you think of how the Democrats are trying to portray Mitt Romney as an extremist.
I mean here's a here's a guy who is a moderate governor.
In Massachusetts he was a Republican.
In I Democrat state severely blue being portrayed now as an extremist on a bunch of stuff by -- -- what do you think about that.
Well the good news or use it to the American people -- much of it.
They may have some things which are concerned about Veronica you don't know -- will it but it's not about his political philosophy or his policies here's a guy.
Who's running for the nomination conservative part of the United States.
And he was the least conservative of the Jewish candidates right did he won the nomination immediately our party is united behind it.
And that's a tribute -- mostly it's a matter of Barack Obama urged the great uniter of Republicans very conservatives.
Well also -- that the president seemed to take on that strategy after the announcement of congressman Paul Ryan.
As a vice presidential pick.
So do you think that he was trying to align the two of them together because arguably congressman Ryan has been more conservative on certain policies that -- -- What I'm an erection at this month twelve presidential campaign and if you go back at least -- level.
In every campaign a Democrat messages are probably gonna cut Medicare reform and a good Medicare program -- one -- -- that's right and so that was common.
This you spit it the -- just.
That and far actually my experience is that helps Republicans.
We saw and I have some question the more -- -- appears talked about the more information -- -- the more facts are almost label.
The better the Republicans does it so happened a long debate that is informative.
Whom will be good for us is absolutely and -- it's good that you would remind folks that the Democrats have been suggesting that Republicans are gonna program off the cliff.
For decades that's exactly that I have to just say this.
Medicare spending is only don't Melvin wants in the Haitian -- it was on the Bill Clinton it was another Democrat -- it but it was nothing wrong with a the big is real to Medicare ever.
Is Obama take a 716.
Billion dollars over the next -- it was supposed to go to Medicare and divert it to Obama appeared.
