As part of making a broader point about Republican.
Criticism of President Obama team and this happened at.
A training session for Jewish Democrats on how they convinced.
Fellow Jews to try to vote for Obama and you're in attendance and you reported it correctly on Tuesday -- came out the examiner.

I quoted the full context of everything you know I described the event and everything and the Israeli and that embassy emphatically denied that.
The -- -- -- -- it's so what does she say she says we can't trust that guy kisses from a conservative newspaper.
Unfortunately for heard you had audiotape yeah I always think precisely for this reason that I always recording everything.

The Obama people not happy with third and would like to get rid of -- conventions over.

But given you know the troubled that he has he has had this week particularly in addition to this which we talked about yesterday.
-- and then taking god and the Jerusalem out of the platform and then.
In a very him -- -- way.
Having that crazy vote and then look good -- I think they're very defensive over the Israel issue on Obama's record on that.
And particularly you know big Jewish vote even though Obama still gonna win overwhelmingly.
Meet at the training session I went to -- pointed out that in Florida for instance if his share of the vote drop to 65%.
