All right we're back let's find out if we got -- -- -- soap opera that we got a TV can't really be handy.
Hey Greg how the hell I am doing well thank you get and it flurries got a handful again appreciate.
Yeah I'm on my bad motives and one.
There's -- question Greg yeah I as the sitting a permanent thing that.
I -- I go back and forth.
The critics warn that while you sit -- I do iiroc.
No like I'm just listening to this man hollered that announced Lori fill critical opportunity to hot hot and that share more into -- job Laura just -- that -- -- Not many young people don't don't know if you great.
We'll tell I think and I couldn't figure out different tonight.
Daddy's sitting move you can figure that out -- fat because from my vantage -- and it's like you are so I wasted.
Partly right -- now.
-- it's not happened yet in fairness to Lori and you can get as many -- -- Marti.
He's had them you would notice things -- and I go on I shipments that -- wasted because you have a high tolerance -- you have -- I do it by dollar -- -- -- I don't know how to cook cook up moderately buzz it.
Odd debate -- governor guy you said you didn't hear anything in the debate that you liked and it was all snide things I want to ask you a question.
You said on Wednesday any kind of addresses on the show to -- you -- quote.
I'm the attacks in Libya the debate we must have is not over with what we call it -- when we needed debate over why we were there at all.
Why we had an ambassador there.
Yeah well why we should set herself while I was shed any personnel at all and an embassy in it.
That becomes a target for these groups that are looking for -- hard I mean I don't think it shows weakness I think it just shows brain's not either.
Because he -- satisfied -- no I don't act.
Think it's I don't know it's a little odd that we wouldn't have an ambassador -- looking after vital American interest you know commitment they'll turn around -- -- the vital American interest -- aren't being addressed.
Maybe just keep up the security.
Maybe just not be there in the first of.
-- -- Obama won among journalists on Twitter.
And -- you watching at home and you thought Romney did OK did you think Romney won.
And that's not Romney was winning up until someone who put a crowbar those folks -- and the whole thing just ground to a halt when.
Candy Crowley animated about herself -- -- was inevitable but Twitter is really an amazing little hive and self satisfaction.
No I I agree that's the most repulsive placed a bet you're version of -- just an FYI for those if you following -- -- -- did -- -- in Twitter followers over the weekend.
I'm fairly certain nobody on -- following that.
Well yeah because you lost that he won it you feel differently because that country are behind -- behind me Andy yes you.
-- the hives anyway -- that.
That is true and that that is -- I should have been rolling in the preamble and hit -- Tucker -- the kind of got to talk are pleased that we fundamentally important.
God I don't I -- I agree with you Tucker about the Twitter thing.
I thought more to the point.
Everyone was pretty quick to say that Obama lost the first debate and I felt like for a lot of people they had a lot invested in him not not losing this one.
We had a pool in my office who is going to be the first reporter for right Obama got his groove back -- the outfit I was and they.
Well Saturday night -- any self awareness at all -- really -- Obama got his group back there really should Ricans like.
I'm not assisting suicide but what you should just sell vinyl siding or something -- you should not be in journalism and right now at look at the biggest mood swing was and anti solvent I went from absurd to -- as medical -- I -- -- -- -- mean you can -- you can say -- about -- Yes for Hillary Andrews is I mean has literally has mental problems -- attorneys and yet.
Yeah let's examine that reference I mean there's Obama got his groove back what does that mean patents don't get back totally Obama's left with a much younger man.
That's how you must know -- a -- back room that's what it means -- what are you trying to say let's -- on Obama's love with a much younger man stopping.
I you have no proof of that book that are you I'll -- -- -- got how Romney can win on the issues.
But Obama can win the debate as the snap polls or whatever seem to show.
I don't think it's actually that -- I think you can think Obama had a better performance.
Even though you agreed with from the on the issues I think it's possible.
Yeah that's -- You know you -- this amazing meal and you loved the stake.
And you like the mashed -- if you enjoyed the piece right now they're all great but Danny had this -- this other place.
That didn't have the state wasn't as good from the -- weren't as good the massive -- we're as good right but you thought the presentation was better for so you're gonna be different now want.
Yeah I got for metaphor America -- somebody somebody makes my hungry inside and out with -- -- convoluted but what's.
I guess not that might be a model -- You're I think you're underestimating how much performance matters in a debate to people.
Not -- now.
I'd like I'd like to have good tasting food not a cool chest but you're you -- you like to to -- yourself as better than other people that is true yes.
I -- I thought Obama won Bob barely yeah an audience not on point.
Lorie talk Candy Crowley was pathetic that you insert himself it's that she inserted herself and became almost a third debater.
And Tucker you said that when TV people moderated debates they make themselves part of the story.
The worst part for me is the next day why is she going on all these TV shows to talk about how she was the moderator because it's about her again TV it's and it's not unique to candy will I should just -- -- that are pretty well.
Very nice person apps I've ever ever get journal -- I don't know but that's what she's just she's totally -- person I genuinely like her.
I'm out they -- want to talk with all the talk about themselves I was at -- -- and she had her own area.
There and she called Candy Land.
No she did yeah that's not true.
Acts that we've monitored I think they are regular -- and I am undecideds -- -- -- -- -- it was a -- -- totally bought that why do you think Obama want.
One and he he wasn't fact checked at all.
I have a look at debates are generally unfortunately -- not about the facts and I think Obama presented himself -- -- Romney I thought was too.
He was to -- -- snippy and I just I I don't think he presented himself as well as Obama did.
Just just strictly on that that's a circular argument I just -- the major constantly was yeah let's let's let's not really what he did.
And that's you know.
I think there -- I think governor let me ask if they they all they make these big deal about setting up these debate rules and they fight.
Back and forth with the debate commission and they set them up.
And then like in this debate one of the rules -- the candidates are not supposed to address each other directly or ask direct question to each other that was out the window in like thirty seconds.
-- -- why do they bother.
Why do they bother.
And let me point out of the debate commission is Republicans and Democrats -- no interest whatsoever in seeing.
Along the third party candidate -- devastated if not at least not bitter about this yeah.
-- did you have a lawsuit going on there.
Yes yes we do we have problems on how to come.
I'm not not too optimistic and I don't -- there aren't that I -- -- -- -- -- -- you might get an in one of these debates after next week at.
Kids you know.
I'm in the last debate that's the could be president that I found out that apple tree removal and you're also in the debates you're in a debate moderated by Larry King debate moderated by Larry King with other third party candidates again.
And you kill.
Well have you met the Green Party checking -- with him over Jill Stein yes I have I've debated her a couple of times and a couple of these -- I don't want to call mock debates I mean they're really -- how crazy she.
Well you know -- talks about full employment.
Through green jobs and she talks about zero unemployment through green jobs and that.
That we should provide health care improvement is that every single citizen that's how we're gonna move our economies -- -- trucks get basically.
Yes -- governor governor you don't.
Larry King gonna take callers.
This gets -- -- -- class and I don't know I yeah.
I don't I don't governor -- we had enough green jobs we can provide health care for people from cradle to grave.
I don't know -- looking -- a so so what you're not hearing in the debates is we need to cut Medicare spending.
It's unaffordable it's.
And it's a 100 dollar benefit that you and I pay thirty dollars for and by extension we pay 30000 dollars into a benefit.
That we get a 100000 dollars benefits and look it's not sustainable as -- so many other aspects of federal government some Medicaid military spending for starters you are one of those extremist wackos I know and -- What does math guys -- -- another -- that's not a bad idea I just very lastly -- you sort of governor Johnson you've never been so close to someone running for president.
Actually you can't pass a background -- and you happily and Freddie tree if you can't pass the Secret Service backgrounds and me.
Actually no it's in -- -- set that I remembered in 1988 when President Reagan came back to California Southern California -- LAX.
-- -- -- our lives right next Huckabee are you.
Yeah isn't it yeah.
I've seen you on the eighteenth floor I don't want to.
Governor Huckabee and I about an -- and and and he was in the US and have a -- down for a good candidate.
I think I -- trying to throw me into the bus that's his job I was -- I felt that -- Yeah Huckabee really care.
Off he went every night yes I got there -- how many get an angry stern letter about you tomorrow.
It'll be in great calligraphy.
He's got an amazing handwriting is that yes -- -- -- all the glory do you believe everything I say something is definitely wrong with that woman far right.
