For the president you have such strong such passionate feelings.
Aren't you gonna miss sharing those feelings with an audience -- a day -- day basis.
Alan I sincerely.
Worried that after 42 years of talk radio that when I walked away from.

And that's what I'm concentrate you don't like.
What's really selling I -- That the the alarm with which you talk about America is certainly not something I share and I'm I'm kind of shocked.
When I hear people -- not -- whenever say this.
That you're so worried about this country you really think we're going down the wrong road and I see it just the opposite I see the economy getting better I see is moving socially certainly in the right direction.
I see the fact that we have agreement on immigration.
Coming a good thing I see gay marriage which you don't seem to care about very -- anyway a good thing.
