Let's find out if we gotta get around so far for that -- -- TV's -- alleviating pain great -- Good good feel better about tonight job well he got only a little seeking to beginning yeah but held together.
I'm trying to acted on this time now -- well tonight.
Poll shows more Americans are rather have dinner with Obama and Romney ambassador you said of those so called empathy gap has its so called -- We thank you and you're doing that I think that you should you don't want a president who connect with people and Brooke you said you would hope that this is a meaningless poll.
But I think.
This is important to a lot of voters now the hole I feel your pain thing I think I think there are a lot of voters out there who want a president who they think empathize with -- Then keep your hands off my pain.
That's a great season that is gonna make the after show massage is tough to do.
Really don't measure of this and that means that people want him to question -- -- -- don't -- ridiculous.
I I agree except bomb.
The question that -- -- -- if it was the one about we'd rather have as the captain of leadership.
I think that's the only question that that is actually applicable to a presidential election that's only -- to -- that would seem to be important.
I as a metaphor or maybe you don't know exactly OK can we just point out who is an awesome ship captain.
In the perfect storm really.
And what happened that fast ship he was that he was an awesome ship captain the ship the ship -- that's yes but he was an awesome -- gap means very handsome.
And to be fair that was a perfect storm it was -- he was a perfect cap he -- -- -- empathy remember you so much and defeat him.
But the thing is also Mitt Romney could be very empathetic and just not -- showing it like we don't -- you don't see him in private I agree with what you've got to Clinton and.
Yeah also you could argue that a -- a guy who talked about other people clinging to you know.
With bitterness to guns and religion isn't as apathetic as some people might think that's a good -- Brooke I don't know what the human we means very vehemently confessed.
TV is nerve wracking times -- Rejected and that gave them going to the basket that -- -- with Obama's project -- fit and -- room.
Also I was not very empathetic when I called you -- -- no.
But then again don't ever accuse me of being next.
-- -- I I -- Greg did you mention Obama's grandmother when Jesse said that you would after Reid and Obama would make them more loyal friend yes OK that I don't have to mention I thought you could.
Yeah I -- at that I didn't mention why just yelled -- grandmother I'll look at.
Good enough most people remember I -- And can get Jesse upstream or something else.
-- -- object billions you said.
You said of the ambassador saying he'd rather have Romney console in the -- pet turtle died because you don't have to get another internal make money off that that you don't think the ambassador knows what console means.
I don't think -- -- what -- means.
Com making money off my dog and I can't -- I knew how I would yeah.
We'll see that's why you need to have dinner with on this but I said that's the whole point -- concurrent that's apathetic.
And -- that I made money -- my -- affair it's point and click.
But I can't tell you what they did know we know no -- let's go to any local ER they'll explain me here.
Also YouTube yes it -- here in Dover -- I think our Greg I believe this is the hands -- up something like that so it is interesting I did not know what it is pretzel.
And rookies that you hope Obama's teenage daughters caught in that hand -- I actually.
Might sources tell me he learned -- from the credits of Iceland's Coca.
-- US dropped to seventh in global competitiveness index.
Greg when you said the -- in Germany probably -- the judges would scat videos.
I'm assuming you referring to Ella FitzGerald live at Montrose 1969 a fantastic video via an amazing yes yes.
The second -- clear that -- -- yeah.
Ambassador you said that under President Obama we can afford to more declines in -- he said it's no surprise that -- be declining under President Obama we should note that our score actually is higher than it was last year.
Declining in rank and we're down to seventh -- 193.
Member nations of the UN so we've got a ways to go under Obama you don't.
What we think will be in another four years got a 193.
We're doing it I don't did condemned both the media -- not bringing Obama and the big story.
I cannot think that was trying to you know -- -- -- you -- -- business that you can etc.
and I'm I'm learning a little might fall in -- we're gonna -- to Turkmenistan.
Put out this.
I like variety currently last on the list who -- I guess he's -- our largest export these days of porn and Adam Sandler movies and actually 2001 it was gas diesel and jet fuel.
If you think about -- a lot of people don't know that yeah I didn't forgot a lot of people you know all the things you're only have to up so I can see why -- have been -- Also -- said it's a little scary that Germany and Japan ranked so high if it makes you feel better -- was only 42.
It's yeah who gave him that list.
Greg you said the film -- the protesters made by Egyptian Christians in the US I just before we started taping a Wall Street Journal actually reported that the film which is called innocence of Muslims.
Was directed and produced by an Israeli American California real estate developer named Sam -- -- so it's judges.
Continent and the film has been promoted by the lovely Koran burning pastor Terry Jones.
SP group Smith.
Apparently clips from the film -- -- not only its flesh and blood but as a homosexual son of undetermined patrimony.
Who rises to -- child slavery an extramarital sex for himself in the name of religion.
Well -- the bad part.
Billion give -- some crap for restating everything Greg and or he's -- -- to answer it well you're right about that but to be fair it makes things a lot easier when you're making your real.
The only show that never talked about it and -- asked -- and that's really good point neck and that's exactly what you're doing.
-- did it ever does is speak candidate.
It is so mind boggling that we have come here to this stage with the State Department is not is apologizing.
For -- Anthony we already here already got enough of the real.
You had to get a little tip for the real take any subject and go what's up with that have -- opinion -- Paris Hilton go to ourselves and what's up with the yes whatsoever that we will -- -- -- -- at the start of the segment and I got -- that's what got it is John Kerry got the five yet tiger Bobbie can I say I -- that Osama bin Laden what's up with the tags but yeah.
That's the important.
-- time really does.
-- ambassador on a serious note this is obviously there's this the Egyptian embassies.
The statement is beyond belief how high up are these statements vetted before they go out like who makes the ultimate determination is -- someone back in DC.
Or is it just the the whoever's in charge that.
At the embassy itself.
Well you know you have to watch for these rogue ambassadors and say what they think instead of just gives a player back and watching I don't know -- -- And not my guess -- this came directly from our ambassador in Egypt and was not cleared.
And Hillary Clinton ought to hope that's true because it means it's a lot easier to -- -- -- which yeah what they should -- and maybe think about recalling him.
Her it's a hurdle for -- a really good six -- minute wait and read it can't be right -- we're not allowed to do that.
You are so sexist -- makes -- six of -- Just pick up point yes.
The fact that Egypt is getting so radical so Islamist -- that cannot be lost in this whole controversy every Christian movie.
Yeah RA I mean look how the Muslim Brotherhood thing it's what they're doing with more.
Don't want one -- serious point here those people couldn't have gotten on the wall that embassy without the Egyptian security guards not doing their job and that's the most frightening thing about that is the precursor to what happened.
In Tehran in 1979 also -- you assume that because we have Marines at -- embassies if you assume that there were given an order not to fire -- did then the Marines are really not -- to get it right fight there there a deterrent more than anything else that they're above last safeguard basically but I think they were clearly told to stand down or get stay inside the building.
Yeah -- by the way I've seen some arguments that the Muslim Brotherhood.
Probably or might not be all that happy with what happened today because it's bad I hate this word but I'm repeating what I read -- where I can remember.
That it's bad optics for them.
I don't know I think the Muslim Brotherhood is absolutely.
Thrilled with the amount of power it has in Egypt you have Muslim Brotherhood governors and all the provinces you have Egypt -- reopening talks with Taylor ran it -- stop a ship going through the -- -- now we're just indicative of what we're going to see in the future.
They're not a client can -- -- point kind of -- what directors when Brooks talking taking candy off this mean.
Distracts from people why I don't -- -- our director don't listen to bill.
Yeah I think David -- -- that -- unless Syria hornet and that is the Muslim Brotherhood benefits from us.
Because they assault that our embassy.
And we gave -- yeah.
Think that's an embarrassment I have a serious question to Andy why do you hate the word optics so much did you have a that experience with the optometrists -- -- camping trip or something was wrong.
No just yet I hated it -- in that he's in a political usage of -- group.
Certain things are bad out there -- expecting a way words were when you set it up than I am and I know.
I just last week on his pick for her things out Brooke you -- that ridicule and outrageous the only possible responses to this campaign -- -- -- history do you feel the same way about the fact that big markets.
Separate -- to women.
Yeah if necessary let's say I've it's embarrassing for me when I have to -- the pink razor thin blades I don't I don't like that they do that.
Fine -- aren't cutting -- I don't know.
I'm not -- you know empathy whatsoever.
And it's -- to be so much harder for you to cut yourself when -- sitting around your bathtub with your -- That that he -- right.
Imagine you're -- That I would like there's been fabulous.
Coming out white bird said.
