First Amy Jacobson's account.
And you're sort of reaction to her -- eyewitness.
Report as to the the the meeting between.
-- inviolate and and Herman Cain.
A month ago.
Well leave it to you guys to have the woman of the -- -- on the show because.
Really that gets right down to it and and nobody asked Herman -- that question today it is Arizona press conference which is this.
We have an -- witness that says that you met this woman talked to this woman at least.
A month ago that you talked her what about that and as you said that came would have a reasonable answer to that.
Which would be I -- a lot of people I'm on the campaign trail somebody comes up in talks -- what -- my got to do I'm gonna be friendly with them.
I'm gonna nod my head but here we have somebody who can put them in the same room together.
And McCain's defense hinges on and he's lawyer up now.
That he has -- is a big shot lawyer.
Who's very good at doing this kind of stuff so he's mounting.
-- -- -- defense on the one hand he says I have never done anything wrong.

A president Obama's health care law which is you must buy health insurance are being rolled in a government program.
