It's and this -- sorts.
But this does not -- Is that why Romney folks are just points or something tells me Ron -- does not care something tells you want -- We'll tell me that himself on the phone with me right now because that's curious on the phone with me right now.
-- -- -- -- back I don't.
Thank you are gonna be rich if I do -- so there's there's so much Romney folks who.
Are getting a little ANC dead but at but you're in the -- appearances in the race and they're more -- -- saying.
Don't they know that this race is over what are use.
But no it isn't over until the votes are counted and we're in the process of course -- a lot of delegates in the states where they've already voted and -- a couple wants to do that you know this is still a strong.
And it does not help he's been in politics although it -- the way politics usually -- as a strong anti Romney.
Element in the Republican you know primary.
And of course Santorum was getting a lot of that -- with him leaving now.
I don't think that eliminate the people who are -- Governor Romney's not current conservative enough.
Might be congress and that the math is daunting and particularly for use.
Security at 51 delegates now it would take a lot of head turning and and changing.
To to change that I know I don't mathematically right it could happen.
But it is daunting as the month.
I think so I I think it I think it is but.
You know -- -- there was no one political pundit who is predicting this storm would say he'll weigh in disappeared one day.
I think changing rather rapidly and -- run into we don't know.
Exactly -- what happens but he IE I don't think a -- -- has been betting on me at the moment.
-- You know we had a lot of primaries a couple of caucuses obviously before the convention to Tampa.
Obviously as you've told me many times are you gotta pick up some w.'s along the way.
On all the more now right.
-- -- You know it's all how you define it but it right now all orders and several days but it we're going into.
We have a very good chance of winning you know the plurality and and have the majority you have to have control that delegation.
And with that comes a little bit of -- in the in politics it and -- that the convention you know we have to wait and see how this -- -- -- You know Karzai in the imagined -- but having moderated one of the presidential debates and -- having watched this process very closely obviously that's -- -- I get a sense -- Mitt Romney.
Had the most has the most respect for you.
Didn't seem to flip over Rick Santorum I could be wrong.
Didn't -- ended to think much of governor Rick Perry when he was in the race was dismisses some of the others maybe -- navigates -- Gingrich but again.
This is this me.
Speaking as a human being vibes -- Sold.
EU to -- not exchanged any nastiness through the campaign as far as I could.
So -- that begins suited to raise this issue that that may be.
There's an understanding.
Mitt Romney and Ron Paul are gonna come up with something or do something beyond just a primetime speech which at the very least you deserve and should be guaranteed.
But we would even something bigger what what what what what he's.
We we've never had that conversation and it is true that the cordiality between the do this -- was better than with the with the others but of course the politics are such that.
I I just can't imagine that happening because 'cause our views are so different.
But I I think acted more like to be C.
His family and our family playing baseball game together of them.
-- into the convention together.
Really so this up personalities up aside.
There's nothing political.
Going on here or or strategy being expressed here because you know.
It does stand out congressman that you two you've had a lot of nasty ads that you -- you then they say nasty you might stimulus -- whatever.
But where you haven't quite taken a down Mitt Romney to nearly the degree of some of the others like -- Gingrich or Rick Santorum.
-- -- -- -- -- Is that just coincidental.
Well I think it is it's politics of course they're you know -- most recent -- came down because I think I mentioned off three -- -- -- -- And I -- death early on but they are as against.
Gingrich intent or more sharper.
Mainly because I think we are -- at least.
And I believe we -- for the same.
People -- you know as saying I think voters -- -- -- -- -- going to be more.
You know looking for the more moderate voter and not the conservative base so I I think I think that was that was more of it.
To I I think yeah I would like to think also -- there's some practical politics from his viewpoint it is.
Yeah you know.
There was a poll -- poll this week showed did I actually did better than he did he tied.
We have Obama might be -- by one point some of that so and I think even those.
The people who are voting for Obama.
If you -- Romney and here are different because I'm living -- civil libertarians and anti war people like cutting into the it into the democratic base.
So it's a different group of people.
So if he indeed win.
And my greatest -- is across the political spectrum.
-- Toughest -- to -- liberty is -- had no Republican primary unfortunately because.
You know I empathize more things than just how we should go -- and the military and military operations around the world to my appeals differently.
But for anybody to -- to win the election -- dot ignore.
These people and I think this explains.
Our secure data now which seems to be increasing rather than paying mile soldier can't -- -- the you know the wind has been declared.
And where we're getting bigger crowd -- more money you know and so.
There's something even beyond my complete understanding because I quite frankly would think well you know in politics these the only thing to drive view isn't.
-- -- you're gonna be in the White House they're going to -- that but.
But the enthusiasm -- -- this past week both in taxes in California it's.
It's really been energizing not only for the campaign -- through put me personally.
Will watch very closely congress and have a good weekend so if we think -- -- --
