Why it why is that why was that the case.
I don't I -- Jack -- isn't Chuck Hagel Chuck -- of the secretary defense nomination -- he has his truck load of baggage he's got to carry with them.
He's gonna get and probably zero Republican senate votes he's got in real but -- jetBlue isn't.
Like you know it's it's like pick and meet you know is totally utterly unqualified and no one wants him.
He just a disappointment he's yet another disappointment from President Obama this is that the elections are done.
President Obama's forty years which he can craft in America that works in -- -- again and again and again he says I wanna fight I wanna pick up -- A jetBlue is the kind of guy you pick he's at Chicago's -- -- not an actual Chicago he's a Chicago style trench warfare -- -- from queens just.

Joseph Biden and I look at -- the list of proposals.
Not a single item on that list would have done anything.
Anything to prevent the Newtown massacre tracking guns in the past from a grandfather I have my dad has his -- shotgun.
One day I'll give it to my side tracking that might be a good or bad idea but it has nothing good happened it happened in -- down.
And V got the capacity issue I had think it's totally reasonable to limit the size of magazines wanna do that.
But once again that would have had no impact on -- saying -- have tougher.
Punishments for taking guns to school I don't think a guy who's committed to committing suicide and religious school is that a worry BC's -- warning that.
Bring a gun over here and it's a 500 dollar fine none of this solves any problems which is as bagpipers point.
