The moment we -- -- And -- this has been a great experience all the more it's not about the politics in the profession is more about the person.
We always make sure we ground our relationship in that.
And it's just been a tremendous tremendous wonderful lesson to us as we know -- some lessons from.
Parts of the two of you are here obviously supporting President Obama at.
Much has been made over the weekend many of his aides -- -- on the Sunday talk show.
Are people better off today than they were four years ago when he was elected.
And they seem to sort of skirt the issue can you answer that question for me this morning are people better off today.
-- absolutely if he if he had not been elected.
The country was going into -- economic collapse he made the brave decision.
The difficult decision not to pull the country out of economic collapse and made probably the most.
Difficult decision which was protected health care is.
Which is hugely important which right now millions of people betting benefiting from and we'll do what's so -- -- wasn't popular.
Right but it had been some people criticized him for doing health care first instead of trying to fix.

What got us into this economic craziness for years ago this old -- -- economic policy hope was foreign policy has not gonna work for this country.
-- -- many don't have argued that this whole campaign has been so defensive.
Will the president do you believe it try and make all people come together over this week or will it be what some people have teams class war.
Let me tell you something I don't know where that came from because you know.
What the president tried to do from day one was wearing -- house together.
As of people there is something else going on that keeps saying that he is that this visit divisive one.
We all know the ones who believe in true hole.
And truly changed knew that that was what had to change.
The devices that device -- -- that was already there so this say that he bought it.
Is absolutely wrong if he was bring -- one thing it was to bring us all together.
So people need to leave -- old arguments in the -- it isn't not about being divided it's about becoming together.
America they'll beautiful for Rio.
I think a lot of people that disagree with you on that front but that's what makes the world go around that's right that's what makes -- wonderful here in America that we can agree I have to disagree but are we better off.
