Cleaners anyway what what's this about now Sarah Palin is turn you down.
Saying that she -- like the fact that you are Schilling for corporations apparently.
Is that any truth in her accusations.
Well I don't I don't think there's even any truth to the fact that she's made the accusation.
The the story.
Source someone unnamed who was close to -- not to her not -- -- -- -- he was going to come won't we were working on it and she's taken some other invitations instead she's going to -- -- party.
Invention is you know until you -- in doing so the other -- -- -- -- be what is next year.
-- politico reported that you and asked FedEx for between two million in three million to get their support.
In a legislative battle with UPS.
And -- FedEx no you flip to the other side and went sided with the UPS is that true.
No it isn't true and in fact we refuted and immediately the fact is that we support the FedEx position.
Did support the FedEx position before they asked to submit a proposal didn't get any money -- and still support their position.
It's it's bad enough in today's world to be charged with things that that didn't happen.
That if we're gonna have the charges we'd at least like the money.
Are you saying that affects I mean -- that politico Mike Allen wrote the story.
Had the story totally wrong.
He did that was very we're.
They have not retracted -- we issued statement to them.
And we issued -- statement there -- story Allan depended on a couple things they didn't check their timeline and their dates.
They suggested that we had submitted a proposal on one day defense expressed that.
If there's -- were true had to have been taken digested.
Rejected turned around and then we had to.
Have submitted a similar proposal could never did the UPS which was accepted all of the 24 hours so we could change your position.
In fact we didn't do that and we didn't change -- position.
They set for two million plus you offered a range of services include producing up beds and articles written by you and -- other members of your reporter directors.
And that in the three page letter asking for money and June 30 you back -- acts.
After FedEx -- rejected the offer you sign onto a two page letter on July 15 thanking UPS.
-- in fact the the UPS should letter of negative letter that was signed never supported UPS in fact that this is where my -- -- completely wrong.
The letter itself.
Said that there was no position taken on the substantive issues a letter that they.
That -- -- -- -- -- a letter.
Which questions the use of these the term.
They called the what UPS wanted to brown bailout would impact of the union site UPS is dead wrong on the fight.
But you know what happens in this -- remember after 9/11 every.
Piece of legislation introduced in the congress was the security there's security there's the agricultural security act.
This year or last year's bad term was -- So in order to fight their opponents they said this is to -- it wasn't a bailout what are what was an effort by -- -- -- To rig the -- that he the playing field in their favor by forcing FedEx.
Literally into the hands of the Teamsters we oppose that and we -- oppose it because it's bad policy.
But labeling at a bail out is to try and sell under.
All I didn't politico or Mike Allen retract the story.
I don't think political usually your tracks anything.
There's been silent.
You think that's why Sarah Palin because of that story is not appearing -- you know.
Is it true you send -- news Mac she's not ready for prime time.
No that's not what I said if you read the -- next story which included the -- on the oh -- -- there were there it didn't.
Quote from the stories they quoted a report about the story.
I gave an interview after probably something you -- -- but I gave an interview after.
She resigned the governorship.
And I was asked if I thought that help or herder and I said in some ways it helped -- -- can understand what she did.
But the fact of the matter is that yes.
What she wanted to do -- be president it would be very difficult.
To establish that she could handle things when she didn't have a place to handle it from -- -- that was her desire.
Resigning the governorship but -- -- wrong idea.
That didn't mean that she wouldn't have great influence didn't mean that you and a rock -- didn't mean she couldn't have influence.
But in terms of running for president I thought it was Wednesday.
The survey liberty university law school they withdrawn co sponsorship of your C packed.
The upcoming conference because they say a Republican homosexual activist group.
See GO proud -- -- Where's GOP -- I guess is I was announced his participating.
We do not who got about nine 95 different groups that that participated she -- -- we've -- 10000 people there.
And many of the groups argue -- each other specific issues.
For example we've got people that favor increased immigration more restrictive immigration.
You well know that was in the conservative movement there are a variety of positions.
On a whole series of issues and we cannot.
Make ourselves the arbiters of what is and isn't the position of these folks.
Are not there to argue their agenda.
There there to demonstrate that on many issues then agree with -- -- bruise on the size of government and -- on taxes they agree with his -- spending.
And that's why they're there and anybody who does agree with -- whether we agree with them on everything or not is welcome to.
But -- those liberty university law school with -- but the unit that liberty itself I think is participating.
I in the law school has withdrawn his co sponsor.
I think other aspects of liberty are part of Liberty Counsel apparently is participant.
I'm not I don't wanna get into which which one hesitant but some of them are some of them -- Junior libertarian groups we have social conservative -- we have religious conservative -- defence group.
Neo conservative groups.
-- -- -- You -- an -- Jerry Falwell junior and Gary Bauer and mets' favor of currently are saying you should allow this other gay group to produce a -- at odds with them.
No that they don't want if they don't like these folks -- their resumption of those folks don't like them either.
Is the tea party movement good for America and good for the conservative cause.
It's good for both the country and for the conservative cause.
For a couple reasons first of all if you -- Followed the tea party you're getting people involved in politics that have never been involved before people are -- they're concerned.
And rightly so about the direction the government's taking you know.
If you look at polls the first time certainly in my memory.
That spending in the size of government are at the top of people's concerns.
And that's -- reflected in this tea party movement you're bringing new people -- to -- into the political process more people today.
Are looking at the issues and decide -- -- -- because they're concerned that it anytime in the past and that is good for the country.
It's good for the Republican.
If the Republicans are able to convince these folks.
That their true what they say as opposed to just saying it and -- -- satan talking the talk but.
Now you consider yourself Republican.
Army Pete you consider yourself for -- -- -- -- is that different than being a conservative.
It is different from being concerned I'm a conservative first and -- Republicans second.
But there are moderate conservative Republicans are are moderate republic.
When you see the tea party for a party without -- the Republicans and -- you may mean even on their own slate of candidates coming up that's gonna be bad for the conservative but I don't split them up.
Personal not a -- It's a movement of people concerned about issues that's healthy.
And I doubt very much if they're going to be fielding candidates what the tea party people are saying is.
Give -- candidates.
Who support the kinds of things we support.
And it's my hope that in the primaries and then in the general election date those folks are gonna join the rest of -- in demanding those kinds of candidates.
We'll all be watching is always fascinating for me to watch C back I love -- to see whether all gonna say there I appreciate your.
A coming on the show David -- talking to us about it and diminish your point of view -- I'm pretty.
