Checking to see you glad to be here any new book is -- America and I'm putt at 10 o'clock.
We don't want it went together a book that was about the essential documents we had to have philosophy books -- had everything from -- -- but they're huge.
And I won't -- one apply to get the essential story the stories Americans needed to hear so it's essentially it's patriots handbook a condensed patriots handbook because a lot actually spent and speeches exactly -- -- when -- -- -- -- so it's not.
Everything that is the -- it's what you really need to net and apps like it did -- -- lets you like the Supreme Court justices and who appointed which once that's sort of fun.
Are now I go to some my spare parts of the book.
I think -- -- everybody is fair and burned they'd give us a speech to President Reagan gave the Brandenburg gates had tear down that law but why did you pick that one.
Yet the very important speech and in fact historically.
And clearly it says that words have power he talks about hair and down a wall he didn't say maybe it should come down our.
Maybe one day it won't be hearing said mr.
Gorbachev tear down this wall.
And it wasn't us it wasn't received very well that Richard Cowan said -- a mystery gets out of the that he doesn't know what he's saying but we know now between -- months later.
The walking down.
Here's some issue.
A close speeches president that I.
That they expected histories at this would actually service have been physical that should give it should be done in the sense -- -- -- is so symbolic -- that -- We look at some of the other a speech is -- -- very powerful words but that would actually had a little action and it.
Exactly infinite but it does it really reminds me all of them and he start Patrick Henry we start with Patrick carrion.
Give me liberty or give me death.
In part of that speech there's always this idea that maybe we can have negotiations and I have a war but he clearly laid on the line.
And that's what all these speeches -- -- -- very clearly what the out what options are.
It's it's not dead and it's it's hard not to notice -- -- got so -- -- presents yet that speech disposable wooden.
About Barry Goldwater back in the mid 1967.
Why break and really give it -- special fondness for writers -- I was President Reagan different black.
What he is different in different that he went back to conservative values and -- which -- top that one of the gas was found Calvin Coolidge.
And we say his speech -- also included the fact when Reagan became president he moved Calvin Coolidge into the cabinet -- For Reagan got -- he again again again reminds us.
About our foundation about the fact that we were established link herself independent -- that.
Our rights come from our creator.
To individuals to government.
And -- fact that basis that the people have the power.
And that's what resonates -- out to these speeches and documents President Bush's speech after 9/11 is in here there are not recent democratic presidents so let me ask you -- president -- -- said.
Who has -- speech have been inspired many President Clinton inspired many.
-- -- -- We really didn't Clinton we didn't put any current president who could we actually thought about that we went to make sure they had some historic perspective and -- -- -- that.
When a sitting president we do he -- JFK's inaugural.
Was -- it's -- inspirational speech.
-- Martin Luther King -- speech I have a dream speech so we really did try to look from an American perspective it wasn't that we try to exclude anyone.
We'll really did look at over the course of our history what are the best thing essential speeches and of course be there would be a handbook so much instinctively they bring -- Dolly all the speeches.
Favorite I must say are my favorites Abraham Lincoln -- not ROY.
Because he can't help at streets between Clinton -- little overweight -- -- we have three of his speeches and has made emancipation proclamation.
But you can tell on the -- I'm not -- how hard the war was for him as a person as well from nation.
He talks about the they read the same problem they -- to the same dot.
He also talks about with malice towards Islamic charity towards -- -- that he really understood that he was an issue in the hand of god but now.
Is there's no secret if rather is he's also written the end the forward to the book.
He below history from -- I am that I grew up back on the campaign trail -- He started running out seven teams you know lost the first two times so we had lots of Thomas testing on the campaign trying to listen to him talk.
But I think -- out of my -- -- have grown older have 119 year old.
And at the -- real hot how important is it passed down these stories to them as well the fact that we thought we asset -- -- -- by your parents I got new vistas of former speaker because set.
What is everybody -- hair.
And I -- -- and his hair didn't pull the great up under his hair.
You see he had actually jet black hair so this is jet black.
They're very black hair you've got -- -- -- -- that I have because -- -- now I'm maybe who knows maybe you don't have a -- weren't.
I don't -- you know I'm it's that he talks about a lot and the good news is you exactly where he's at the end he -- thinking very hard.
About whether or not they'll the Iran and they'll decide in February or march there went the way -- person -- -- -- makes it what's what do you want.
Initially wanted to make some my decision and says -- close of the session and I have helped him.
From for decades when he runs.
I think he's a great man he's my dad -- I'll support him.
But in the end and he helped make that decision it's a tough decision is imminent reminiscing Theresa said this -- kids are horrible Iraq.
The president hard -- -- you like it's our politics now personal income for the come.
But he's -- threat and I think Angel didn't think he thinks is best it's really is a hard decision.
Indeed it -- the Central American patriots recess I gotta have a pictures resource but that's the brand new book with a forward death.
By her father and -- -- at the secret out about -- he had jet vicariously probably be curious about the rest anyway.
