About it you know I always try to read tea leaves and then that body language and impressions and I was noticing when your father spoke last night.
You know you was a good loyal -- non.
You know you clap that a lot of things he said but he carpet all the things he says particularly when he extended none of -- you hear me I'm not mean to be meaner disparaging.
But when he started talking about Iran and you know.
I'm not saying he was saying you know let the blow -- the world but he was kinda saying look we got a watcher interventionist foreign policy enormous -- -- But it you lump you Coptic.
Well I've been up since about 6 in the morning and -- some of it was fatigue.
But what I would say on the Iran issue is that I really don't think it's so much his Achilles heel when it's fully explained.
For example you know he doesn't want them to have nuclear weapons and -- you know.
And you know still always just when you work holding back of that because that's what rankles a lot of tea parties and other conservatives who otherwise London -- view.
But but but but that would -- -- would carry that libertarian strain would carried to its logical conclusion.
Your father isn't veering far from that by saying.
Being consistent I am against this and that's scary is that you know what out of out of that is some -- that I.
But I think -- I think if people heard a full explanation that for example.
The three previous heads of US Central Command.
Have all warned against a preemptive strike in Iran and they think that the unintended consequences could be worse than them getting a -- -- weapon.
The current head of them aside to -- Pardo said two days ago.
We need to quit saying that it's an existing attributed Israel but you didn't -- about it in debt icon I was very hot and what's your body language I -- -- ahead.
I think you reading too much in that she lays out pretty exhausted our I don't know exactly what Martin western style.
You'll always get -- -- -- puts on remote so what can you death.
I don't take your father's gonna run as a third party candidate.
I think he sees great promise in -- And that you could.
Could complete the job.
He might not be able so I'm not dismissing his chances this year don't get me wrong I just think it could be it up -- battle but you argue shining light.
And if you were to be a third party candidate.
He has -- your chances to ever do what he's doing right now what -- Bob said over and over again I don't think a third party effort is a good idea you know I don't think that the failure to -- oddities mourning -- dead zone anymore it's not out of the question.
-- now and I helped him when he -- -- 1988 but you know what I would say is that.
Right now I think the Tea Party has big momentum that helps the Republican Party.
If we split off I think you would simply so -- -- -- that -- stone -- this would be a disaster today.
Bob when we've had discussions about it and we continue to.
And -- Jeff to realize that when he says over and over and he's he's decided what is -- going to be and he's sticking with his answer he has no plans.
He's -- -- -- ones accessories never really definitive which side fired because.
Is rather a lawyer but the reason is you look.
-- a hat head net present position he's gonna be you -- does not just -- law degree because he sounded like a lower by not.
You know we just but blankly denying it and I think he's safe I think there's really no easy -- easy sees a future president it is -- -- -- -- I think he doesn't say what he just doesn't say it definitively because he's decided that his answer is.
I'm not thinking about it I'm not considering it and I guess the other thing is he gets frustrated by because look.
Until yesterday if you were saying he could win the Iowa primary.
And it's like gosh I think I can win the GOP primary -- why they always bugged me about running for another party.
When I'm thinking about winning the Republican programme into he takes it as an -- on that the question keeps coming up but I understand why people asking because he has done -- before.
But I don't think he will do it.
Okay and could disturb you know I'm right on this body language stuff you know right on my gut call of these things I think.
I also wonder how many percentage -- really fast it is -- -- cents.
All right senator it's always great -- happy new year will be watching you closely.
Thank you --
