Because many at looking at this entire issue governor.
As being an enormous distraction.
Maybe deliberately planted that is what the house speaker John Anderson to get the attention away from the economy.
Do you think that's the case.
Well I think you're gonna find throughout this campaign season.
-- that the president's team will be doing everything in their -- and their power to try and hold up -- shiny objects.
Many of them will be with progress to -- some movement with regards the president's policies are more promises of some new major giveaway.
All these things designed to take people's eye off the ball which is the massive deficit this president's put in place.
His inability to develop our energy resources in this country.
His obamacare which is not attractive at all to the American people.
And an economy which is stumbling along which should have recovered a long time ago.
And as a result a lot of people a lot of work -- those -- the things that I hear about what I'm.
What I'm campaigning today in and day out.
And taking questions from people on the rope line and small meetings and -- in town halls that it's the economy which is the focus of what they're talking about and obviously the president doesn't want to talk about that.

There's an energy situation -- president climbing -- all of -- but on the list you -- almost three weeks now they've been -- gas prices are going.
The other way and then -- they're Democrats have been saying it's because the president.

I think his explanation a couple of weeks ago when they were going -- was that was all because of the speculator myself I guess now he wants a credit the speculators for the coming down.
Look at energy prices are driven by supply and demand.
Head and that's that's as it has been it -- is going to be in the future.
And the truth is that the president has restricted supply development in this country and by holding up drilling in the gulf and by holding up drilling in the -- -- continental shelf.
By holding out drilling and handle our.
Of course by threatening the supply of natural gas by talking about.
The federal government regulating fracking.
Stopping the they put the pipeline Keystone Pipeline from Canada lucky he is doing almost everything you -- to make it harder to develop energy resources and here.
And we're going to be paying for this in the years ahead.
And and the reality is we have more oil production in this country today by virtue of decisions are made long ago including my his predecessor.
He he has cut back the number of licenses and permits on federal land.
-- over half.
That and so they deserve no wow.
For the fact that energy prices now and then come down I sure hope they come down but it's not because of its policies.
