That that is perhaps the best -- not -- like recording ever afraid of anybody as and and what state lines that such a class guy he is eighty gourmet.
Really one of the class performing acts as an American music.
But it fueled if you'll do that that I I would I would also reciprocate and it's early out -- -- think it's not normally that would do that no no no no this is.

All I thought that what went and -- all don't understand why we're so -- -- -- -- of the cypress avenue and -- -- -- lords and -- magical.
And all lose your mind.
Our drug addict that is sad about that I'm not I don't and I remember what I have to do the normal dog are not what I -- -- -- -- check out blue magic in chasing rainbows will be a good shape and I know you've already found Jesus an -- and certainly should at this stage at an -- I definitely.
You know feel comfortable with that being the end result of my efforts afterward some -- and in.
All right I'll I'll talk a little to a ball floats through the program you bet got -- spring back and disturbed and -- Well he he was -- -- but I'm.
This is very important that we must face the reality that the presidency was on the line his presidency was well.
What's clearly -- a lot and I I think that the president.
-- in -- ought not to that I I think the administration.
Knows clearly that they want the precipice of disaster.
It -- of that -- second.
-- -- gonna solve the actual substance of healthcare which we could we could argue -- debate.
Within three or four days after passing the health care bill think of the things that happened.
The president took a tough line or in Israel and bill building settlements in Jerusalem.
-- senate announced they were going to move forward with the federal regulations on financial reforms.
The president announced that got a mop he's going to -- to sign a nuclear arms reduction treaty with Bob -- about the depth of the Soviet Union up about watching.
-- and now in fact he made a surprise -- Afghanistan.

Has turned his presidency around and in fact puts it on a -- when he now console.
That he can demonstrate leadership but the political ramifications will certainly come back to help him in November.
He's got a little seats in the house I think 25 to 35 -- he's gonna lose seats in the senate I think I had the seven states.
But it did not pass health care.
You would have -- on the one hand the anger and the excitement enthusiasm.
That Republicans -- conservatives have for November.
Combined with a depressed vote and we get depressed you stay home so the president.
That vote would have been depressed and he -- wound up losing not seats ten seats in the senate.
To lose control of the senate the senate and possibly fifty seats in the house to lose control they -- that would have destroyed his presidency because he would have made.
No major legislative accomplishments and the rest of its armed but -- Now with the base -- -- not so much depressed.
They're not as excited as they could be but they are happy that he won they feel more confident and then all of a sudden and for five days.
He is now.
Initiated efforts in many different.
