Support and insurance good morning how are you comes and on time thing to -- wasn't -- important did so whatever.
-- former talk about your very fine article.
In the current issue and there are magazine in my embedded -- Yes.
Has there ever -- Maybe except for John McCain they're worst campaigner.
Than Mitt Romney.
It's unbelievable you know I mean here's a guy whatever one thinks of his views who is.
You know obviously a very Smart guy his entire campaign is predicated on his abilities as a -- of mr.
And successful businessman and this is that trying -- -- just no way around it and in -- last you know.
Forcible it would look I know that you would commented previously -- elements even -- barrel last -- about his stepping into it would Libya what -- that way that night.
Attacking Obama before we knew the the ambassador's been killed.
But what was this last night another after 10 o'clock in the east.
But that's not CEO -- -- was in charge -- his own campaign.
-- -- down he keeps doubling down on these misstatements whatever they are.
There's social -- correction.
I -- -- I -- -- really is not down from right but do you think that he actually.
Wants Obama to be elected and just.
We don't -- wants you started running.
Then and then I've got to thinking about it -- -- -- -- Sherman who demand a lot more money in the private sector.
-- That he is don't.
Or three that is he's taking advice which makes a middle from idiotic campaign advisors got to be one of those.
Right I would I would say we -- he's not a -- we can rule out number two I think.
Number one there's something to what I would frame it differently if not so much that he wants Obama to win which is unlikely.
He did not strike me as someone who is burning to be president.
It's almost feels like.
To meet if someone singing -- -- is resonate with he's done everything else do you know -- -- -- good marriage family I've been a big success in business -- Been a governor and so -- select if you're.
You know -- successive the next rung up but it just doesn't seem to be.
A real passion it's almost beautiful -- is running on the third point there's no question.
That he's not surrounded by great people we will doesn't have it seems to -- a single.
Person who's running the campaign in the waited -- Karl Rove lurid James Carville will -- David -- would.
It seems by committee but I also feel.
Most of these decisions or is I think it.
And that and that's sense -- -- -- dope it's not just that he selected the team that is working together.
But he's making these decisions himself -- most revealing things that we -- turned up this week and in Politico was this and drowned out by the recent stuff.
Is that DC they kept throwing -- elect conventions features.
They they got various people to write them and you know include -- we -- well known people -- -- the last minute.
He cobbled together with -- -- the Stuart Stevens is mainly campaign -- Is the biggest speech of his life cobbled together and and look at the way you'll Clint Eastwood -- that was improvised no one.
Kind of -- correctly they let him go on without a script hello it's a he's making these he's signing off from -- decision.
Here's the thing that took Charles -- Photos -- -- conservative.
Corporate fox business and partners -- in my apartment with his -- And Tony there's two -- in -- and Israelis who works in -- right he thinks any blockers a conservative does -- on what this monster as part.
-- the rare.
Right and that they are sellouts which.
I think I'd just look at -- shall work very important.
But he said some pretty important I thought.
About Ron good to see you give up I mean all -- a guy who's a fighter.
-- winner doesn't write off for just because forty some percent.
But -- protections that ultimately there is committed to Obama won't were -- you don't just -- -- moth.
You're you're still try to get them to vote for the party your job if you run its -- I mean -- -- -- -- to present this to represent all the people.
Exactly and end.
So what made -- -- well there's in the and an analyst here at Obama's famous clinging to doesn't -- -- -- but even that was said in the context I wanna win these people over its not that.
I don't want to win them over even worse.
Is -- -- or those 47%.
Many of them -- are people who were retired and elderly.
Many of them are in very poor states that are red states.
So not only is -- -- -- the people he had won over you'd actually insulting some of the people he had won over.
I had some Bob's like and read your article what I want to do was -- I want to spend a week.
Just watching this news through conservative media and by that I don't mean just fox I listened to.
Every you know all the radio shows out there that you you know all too well.
Look at every web site including you know really Smart.
Upscale ones low grade ones.
And I did -- during the week the Republican Convention gonna want to see what conservatives were saying.
About -- we know what they think of Democrats it was actually fascinating and and government.
I discovered some introducing you know writers.
And some and I you know listen to Michael Savage -- -- -- -- -- Mark -- I learned stuff and I but I like came away with -- Lausanne is probably what do you agree -- -- or not yeah and as you listen to -- pronounce his name to going yet it yeah I learned of -- at the flight data that they don't -- -- -- rationale -- -- but.
You learn that they euros a lot of independent minded people they're not happy with Romney they're not particularly happy with the Republican Party.
And you had a hold some different sense of the convention.
Then you would have gotten by you you know well watching what -- called the little lame stream media.
And and so -- it's a much more.
And and -- -- to disillusioned.
Conservative movement and you'd think.
Did you -- more.
I have I have I wouldn't -- more or less I would say yeah I would have to -- more in the sense that that.
Some -- -- their views but consistent complaint that I came across the week was that they felt their views.
-- they're going to be -- are generally -- they felt they were not being.
Well represented the convention many of them are fans real fans to -- -- And their complain about Ryan was that they -- his.
His -- were dumb down and sort of hidden in his.
Acceptance speech at the convention because you know the Republican establishment wanted to make everything bland to appeal to independents.
So I had more respect for.
If that their integrity and in expressing.
Not marching in lockstep with any establishment.
Traditional light but oh no it's great to torture and I'm -- -- -- -- -- delightful have you on us Robert keep asked in Europe terror and thank you Frank Rich got.
