And also if you go back the last debate and how Romney a lot of people would argue.
Mixed really hammering the president on how he handled that BA in -- immediate aftermath.
A lot of people said.
Let's be very clear the fact that the governor would not able to -- that developed the entire argument was the fact that the journalists who conducted -- motivational.
Cut him off.
Today it's honest capable today Libya -- going to be address today Syria has going to -- -- and tonight Iran is going to be addressed and I think.
But the differences between the Obama agenda and be.

Label China currency manipulator.
Yet China's exports most of them come here and most of our treasuries well -- purchased by the Chinese very tenuous relationships so.
What's the best way for the governor to navigate this.
He would have to be very clear and we haven't experienced from the Reagan days that when you are very clear and push back against Communist regime such as the Soviet regime.
That would end -- -- and we had Gorbachev and that brought down they'd be the collapse -- on the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Now China sees that the current administration is actually you know was drawing is pulling back is not really dealing with the Iran is not really dealing with the other threats in the Middle -- it's -- encouraging China.
To do what is doing so a different approach by the United States would modify the position of the Chinese leadership because -- to.
They wanna continue to make money -- -- they don't want to risk the financial -- All right while he fares thanks so much for now -- we'll be watch.
