Much does this hurt two former libertarian vice presidential candidate -- -- that.
Hey Neil how are you on my I think about the only.
About the only good thing that comes out of this nice to know -- really bad economy you could still sell a senate seat up up at least there's some commerce going on out there but.
As far as Barack Obama you know I think people are more upset and outraged over something that they shouldn't be -- something they should be.
Yeah it's a terrible thing it's an awful thing it's disgusting thing.
It's disgraceful thing that the governor of Illinois was out selling -- senate seat.
But I don't think that's half as bad.
Ads the what I would call the legal bribery going on with the orderly union and the and the auto bailouts because all those -- should do and idea let's be honest is propping up these ridiculously high bloated.
Union contracts union salaries -- union and.
-- you feel about and I -- -- you feel about bailouts rescues but how does this play in the that the senate and I've heard from a lot of people would talk to me today is that.
They they think it's not such an easy right now and it's not such as blank check and that it's actually kind of slowing things down this'll.
-- -- I I don't mean to say I told you so but I would disagree because I've been on your shelves so many times of late and I felt like a broken record I kept saying that.
You know there would be a bail out the bailouts disgraceful the auto bailouts the worst of all them what I really mean to say I told you so about -- I was the guy was set again and again.
That the Democrats are gonna saying how terrible the CEOs of the auto makers are and they got to try and act tough and they're gonna -- -- prosecutors.
But behind the scenes I believe they were all slapping backs and drinking champagne -- an -- congratulating each other what a good show they put on the they knew they come back and give the bailout you're still gonna see the bail out now that you're gonna see a much bigger one after January 20 when Obama gets inaugurated.
Is that I don't think did this -- damage it it dies down the fixation on this dies down.
If it's a bridge to you know -- where this thing that -- that it doesn't connect that many players but just.
And allegedly crooked governor.
And then you're probably right -- Yet the only problem in my mind as I said from the beginning -- Obama comes -- the most corrupt.
Political machine and all of American history and I can't imagine he's untouched by this machine but there is nobody.
The -- and added that it also enjoys doing Blagojevich and then -- and then some of the parties around him.
Is that well but you know these are the roots from -- it's the president elect's Ron.
He does not -- here -- -- would be dancing with these doubles and then that probably could ever -- it is nothing nothing in the president elect's.
Either policies or statements that a quid pro quo in fact.
From the governor himself he's cursing out the president elect because he he's not being consulted and have an appointment to the fact he's not being offered -- -- so.
You know that doesn't seem to be much.
-- -- I have never made the connection that he's involved -- that I've made the connection we were just insinuating that you -- doing that nasty well he's been.
They do at CNN where they insinuate stuff is he -- you know he grew up anyway he.
The only grew up politically to corruption.
In really a situation of where tit for tat was OK you've got illegal corruption like the governor of Illinois involved in.
And you've got what I call legal corruption and -- corruption is.
The union supported Barack selection they elected a democratic congress now when they come calling Democrats try it -- up.
But they have to give them and they have to give the bailout money goes all the union workers in all would you let you know early in my -- -- -- -- Democrat.
Here's my crackpot theory on this that if there might be something do it but this is my opinion probably not a whole lot but but.
I think taxpayers are gonna look at this sordid soap opera -- and say.
We realize these guys are the exception not the -- that the kind of stuff that's gone on even though it seems to be pretty dominant in Illinois is is not the rule.
But -- we damn well think twice about giving them a lot of money.
On just in case it is you know.
Well you know listen my feeling is.
That if the governor of Illinois wants to sell senate -- he should go to prison he's a criminal.
But it doesn't affect my future my children's future but if you want to give fifteen billion dollars now to GM Ford and Chrysler for a failing business model.
And you know damn well.
Three months and I you're gonna have to -- another fifteen billion and another thirty billion and eventually another sixty billion you are damaging the future of my children.
And my grandchildren and that's what people should be up in arms about not whether or not US senate seat was being sold.
By a friend of Barack Obama's but it is very well what went down route always -- have you want thank you.
