More right well top Obama -- strategist David Axelrod saying that the president is not stalling on giving answers about that attack -- Libya.
This is questions -- over what the administration did and did not now.
Before the September 11 incident is a retired.
Four star general and Obama campaign advisor Wesly Clark general good to have you thank you -- -- to be with -- that was the argument I guess is that whether the White House is sort of.
Running up the clock but even I don't think so -- the ever lay out this thing you know.
In a real investigation.
You know after 9/11 we took -- for years.
To really understand what happened -- it turned out that there before 9/11 there were really strong warnings.
But I think there's something else going on here.
In Ben -- there's a lot of cloak and dagger stuff associated with this and there been enough leaks to make me believe that there's more to this story.
And we'll you just don't want her -- -- and well enough to discomfort -- -- it's possible.
It is -- is that the president -- at the very least his top advisors.
Let us now no I don't think so I think it's the opposite I think they're doing some remarkable things in big -- And those -- warm release what what was actually going on there remember him bastard didn't live have been causing.
Investor is in Tripoli.
That's the camp in Gaza something else.
That would -- there how many warnings about how to edit button in Gaza was there was a reason you don't think there -- no fifteen more -- right now would do any good now.
-- I think no I don't it is a president reelected -- -- and -- I think what's gonna happen is we're gonna find out more eventually -- investigations completed.
But I don't think you can rush these kinds of investigations are literally hundreds of thousands of email traffic -- communications intercepts -- have to go through to figure out who knew what.
-- and no doubt general and you're right -- -- apples and oranges to compare two different crisis periods but.
If you think about -- -- The president many of his advisors.
Within the weapons of mass destruction we're talking.
What the Bush Administration knew and when it knew it.
There doesn't seem to be the same zeal to get.
The same treatment.
Here actually various I don't think anybody cares more about the safety of these American diplomats abroad and the president.
And -- this incident occur he immediately called other heads of state.
He we -- -- military forces.
Even into the area of Libya theaters aren't as it happens -- the election is done according to get a full account and what happened.
I think you'll get units and -- I think you'll get a full accounting.
Less the stuff that needs to remain classified because there's classified things going on there you know it's -- -- with the presence reluctant.
No I think I don't think it at all when you were working struggle on behalf of the president.
Using your serves as an Ohio particularly.
On -- that states with.
I think he's looking very good were very copper in the ground game there you know.
One of the big things in Ohio is that the American manufacturing industries actually coming back in Ohio.
For the first time since the mid 1990s Ohio is adding manufacturing jobs I had -- in case -- the other day.
He says a lot and it's -- his files -- -- you know success has many fathers is a site.
But I'll -- -- one thing it's really about the automobile industry I was in Youngstown.
That's where the Chevy cruise is made and that's it that's a car that was worn out of this crisis.
And it's -- -- America product made in Youngstown Ohio boy you talk about some proud people.
And some people were very very literal president's back and -- Karen I think it's a tremendous -- -- -- -- Pennsylvania 81 people so surprised.
No because I think that -- -- your carry Pennsylvania also you know there are lots of polls and if you spread across the polls the majority of polls for polls are worth -- show.
That the presence ahead in most of these battleground states.
Buy enough of -- margin to carry but -- you know the key thing is to turn helped.
And one of them -- most disturbing to me is a former general officer and someone who supervised elections in the Balkans during the 1990s and make sure they were fair.
Is that for some reason and some of these -- we've got.
Political parties that don't want people to vote they keep trying to restrict the poll hours they restrict the number voting machines they -- -- -- What -- -- about people who wouldn't -- lines were voting.
Mitt Romney and they were popping up does Obama votes in -- -- I go out of my mind about that yeah but I only heard one instant -- that I've seen many instance.
Where we tried restarting only involve hundreds of pounds so well you know what I've seen is that doesn't work that he's not that it doesn't -- set me.
It shouldn't be happening in the United States America.
But I you know if if there's of an -- keep the polls open.
What's the difference this is United States -- America when people around the world.
Understand about voter suppression here these are easy about polls open another -- and instituted formal open right now put him open for early voting.
You know in Ohio we only had -- you're not saying hello how are you -- and go to November 7.
Well we -- have four hours ago or early voting today.
In in Ohio polls were -- one defy.
Now why is that.
Why couldn't we have had eight hours for ten hours I don't want to -- our violence and more ready vote.
Great I think they should all vote early because you know in somebody's polling places you're waiting for two or three hours to cast a ballot.
Now in Florida you're not trying to -- -- the clock and get your desired outcome.
Now I'm trying to get every -- every American should be voted.
That's that's the goal and that's the standard for the United States of America general -- pleasure thank you sort of.
