Crush guys we know also holds vast energy wealth.
In this heavy influence in the oil and gas market has become a potential weapon.
It's clearly prepared to use.
All right Senator John McCain blessing to us again today my next guest says oldest blasting.
And tough talk is not registering with us now the -- presidential nominee.
-- -- So you find senator McCain's approach to despair.
Line well this very simplistic got a batter he really doesn't have a firm grasp for the geopolitics.
In the have to make and demographic problems and that part of the world.
He seems to feel similar to what George Bush felt a number of years ago.
That Putin could be trusted because he looked into his eyes and saw a man he could trust.
Senator McCain seems to be falling in into that same simplistic mode that if you meet somebody and know them.
You know they're trustworthy and where their friend we need to support them.
You know we're not all georgians.
Simply because there is a very serious problem that we ought to be concerned about we ought to be monitoring very carefully.
Between Russia and Georgia does not by any stretch of the imagination.
I mean that we ought to be becoming involved and that clearly seems to be in the direction in which -- this administration and Senator McCain are going all right so congress in your view the official libertarian view an artificial but sort of the acceptable return abuses but out of these -- one costs and be aware of them be concerned try and mediate.
There are certainly are pressures they can be brought and you know it's not that we ought to back away and say we have no interest whatsoever here.
But I think it is foolhardy and again very simplistic to be jumping in to these sorts of disputes.
The one in particular here was at least in the short term precipitated very clearly by actions by.
-- -- that might be right congressman but the response of the Russians was -- and handle on your head there obviously poised ready.
And unwilling to to see what was going to happen everybody knows that article anyway I -- the Georgian president upon understand and by the way he he mentioned -- Let me ask you it is your position that.
Even though you see signs of militaristic activity -- it would -- that with Hitler.
In the thirties you just ignored and say you can't ignore it anymore or do you act preemptively as essentially McCain.
Seems to be advocating that you don't ignore this it's to your own peril if you do.
I got on I don't see that this is another Munich.
And that's part of my petty -- now.
Well because because of the units are set -- missiles not his guesses is that's a guest live leaning congressman as well they're not they're not going there are going to leave completely I think anybody would be simplistic if they believe that there is going to pull out -- you know everything is hunky dory again.
The Russians very clearly intend to maintain a great deal of influence in that area.
But the people that auditorium president Omar would ignore.
No -- I'd -- said absolutely I would not ignored being concerned about it becoming involved out through the Europeans to exert pressure on on Russia.
And after all it's the Europeans the really ought to be more concerned with this.
And we ought to be going to the Europeans -- -- -- You know NATO has outlived its usefulness that was an organization and -- that was put together sixty years ago for heaven's sake for an entirely different purpose.
You all need to band together you have a greater GDP than -- the United States for America after all bloody European nations yet they're just sitting back and letting us do their heavy lifting -- for the.
President gore would say now finally beginning to the president bar.
Involves getting candidate -- in the debates.
And you have a big.
Test to get in the debates have to score 50% of poles to be here at 67% right now.
-- when it's gonna happen.
That that's that's not necessarily terminate it is a tough road no doubt about it the cards are big there are really stacked against any third party even a legitimate one like the libertarians.
Many people in this country is you know from starting these things very carefully over the years don't really start to focus.
On the election even on the candidates and what they're going to be doing.
Until after Labor Day the talk is you're going to be pushing -- sort of like a blitzkrieg of -- to get your name out there to get from the people.
To build those numbers up but getting the fifteenth conference.
It did it's tough but it is doable and I mean there are a lot of people out there -- our viewers of Fox Network for example that really also want to see this process opened up.
So that they simply don't have once again two sides of the same thing or is this the congress -- the argument is and I know you hated because you're you could see -- loses its religion president of the White House.
But their argument is you're an also ran who take more votes than John McCain.
In the end electing Barack Obama.
I'm I'm also -- have a randomly this the first time I've I've run for the president of the United States.
The problems that the Republican Party and Senator McCain have in this election cycle.
Are very serious and they go far deeper than simply Bob -- there's no vision no leadership no agenda for the American people.
That's the problem that the Republicans have and that's why there's a lot of libertarian leaning Republicans and true conservative Republicans aren't going to vote for Senator McCain.
Those in the votes that we intend to get.
So you want to do would John Henderson claimed in 1980 get people to think that if you had a serious thought they would vote for you won her third party counts the most artists.
Most people it's a wasted vote and end of non that's exactly what happened Ross Perot back in 1992 as well.
There was kind of nuts and him.
He was doing he was doing very well notwithstanding that he had removed himself and I and then come back again.
And the exit polls I think established with a great deal of credibility.
That he didn't get a lot more votes than he did simply because people didn't think that he could win had they thought he could win they would have voted for you -- -- point six seniors are going to think about it in August he was leading in those schools primary and then came back and very very interesting argument four.
We shall see thank you mail.
