Kimberly -- -- marathon bars.
So my favorite chocolate.
-- -- -- the election just twelve months away the Atlantic the magazine not the ocean notes admits skipping camp and fluff like interviews with us weekly.
This week Iraq read a story titled Barack -- what if I think she didn't know about me spoiler alert he's a caring dad.
But zilch from Romney because he opted out unlike Obama who feeds off -- like it's cotton candy Romney's turn -- Glamour Magazine in the view as well as Nickelodeon and MTV.
So will this hurt its chances it shouldn't.
But it led the big joke about Romney is that he's not a joke he's a success which makes -- the punch line for people who think community organizing is actually work.
Hah hah I'll look at mr.
money actually did all right so rich and white and -- what he's religious he's boring he must be a robot.
Yet we live in a tablet keeping your head down working hard is less cool -- staring deeply -- to -- -- ours eyes.
That really isn't doing to view glamour and MTV just community organizing for left wing media hacks Obama's getting -- -- ducks in a -- so they'll quack is -- it wants but the quote Morrissey.
The joke is it funny anymore.
Look I love clowns I am one but you don't want -- in charge anything I ran the five's Chris -- last year -- half the staff flared up.
So -- serious times and it is not such a bad thing to have a serious guy in charge someone who actually ran something.
Let Obama keep doing the fluff after all it keeps him away from the controls.
-- you're recently interviewed by woodland -- weekly.
Is it important to say yes to everything any press helps as you might say.
It is a seductive thing yet.
It concerns I'd get lured into this thing of the other so many people watching and people and now and they really want to know your point of view and so you cave.
And then you tell you -- to yourself did interview and you got an interview and you think why did I do this is not going to help me -- probably will only hurt me.
And there is a good reason to do popular TV because if you want to persuade somebody.
Or explain something that I can't remember anything of the past year that actually stuck except for the most recent one which was.
That the -- and not -- -- -- optimal which was something the President Obama just repeated.
That Jon Stewart had -- so.
I can't really think of a good reason to do any of these except -- you are a -- it works really well for him yeah it doesn't work for a Republican.
Yet they never do well today but -- -- the missing out.
Should they show their -- side which you often do.
-- in fact that that -- you barely out well in your model ought to wait.
-- Yeah -- you pointed -- the difference there is difference Barack Obama wants to go hang out in you know celebrity -- and did it to the magazine did the did the Leno show.
And Mitt Romney is a worker -- he's -- guy gets things done -- guy who's who creates jobs.
I listen indeed does anyone else think it's a little weird that that David -- -- happened and the day that the day after.
When people were you know.
Kind of dying in this area or.
Almost -- things in -- usual.
Now -- right yes -- etc.
I think it's it was a big mistake that.
If that makes us from -- -- not to go to these things and that -- is right eight only do is get a lot of heat but this -- this key to why why does a Barack Obama go these things because she's got a target audience I'm trying to say this that it's it's these people Nickelodeon and an MTV and their children do you.
Well targeted audience should children could vote so after twelve and I got designs are Democrats -- that's correct I could be dead we -- child leave of who voted many of them.
And -- unemployment rate among the but -- I think district for recess for Obama I mean I understand looks funny but he's after -- targeted audiences that's for politics is about but actually it's.
The more light stuff that whether it's by -- Letterman last night or apologize that we ought to contrast it is to a miserable country.
A country it's like to take great he's at a good time I'm here eating beans.
That's true I don't know if he's eating beans and I evidence at -- yes right exactly that was uncalled.
That problem quit on the use -- think it is interesting that he does -- -- these used channels because most politicians when they talk to their audience they hope people were born yesterday.
-- -- Brack Obama his supporters really were born yesterday but he did say noted didn't Nickelodeon Greg and for the record.
I'm not going to buy us weekly this week -- -- read it -- the nail salon so there may not getting my 499.
And but I think sometimes -- can be good press there was one thing that George Bush did in 2004 he wrote a letter to my daughters and and it was published in glamour and it was just his words so they couldn't interfere with it and it was such a good thanks so if you -- control there's good opportunities -- -- right you often can't control it and and they asked in our -- a lot of questions are loaded with hypocrisy that is ready to -- -- -- I didn't it did Cosmo what do they -- -- but we -- have.
I bought that book and -- -- give my nose and within a -- of that magazine a big yes they want to get it had a security.
What those are.
Think it they issued cease we got to go oh man this just discuss this hour.
