Don't much like maverick so he's out Rudy Giuliani is of African tells me the senators got it wrong.
Republicans just don't like him.
I'm very disappointed -- the campaign reform and many many times.
Including using his last very close race in the Republican primary where the white -- with -- White House went way out for him.
And I went way out from sort of many others.
So I'm very disappointed -- how -- to make its own decisions he's a friend of mine.
And in many ways.
He has had problems in terms of the thinking in the Republican party for quite some time.
Even the economic conservative court right now many at the same kind of -- about you.
This maverick Republican -- -- rule on the core economic.
You know security issues as a Republican.
But socialists is let's not.
And that costume and we -- citizens it's our -- and they didn't departed I think they interpreted incorrectly I'm a Republican.
For what I consider to be the two main reasons the economy national security.
I made a deliberate choice to become a Republican.
Before I was ever elected elected office.
And I -- it because I thought.
The Democratic Party had become too weak on national defense and you became a -- -- on the first year of the Reagan I -- I was very impressed with.
President Reagan -- and it it was basically over.
Strong or weak national defense.
And realistic economic policy so unrealistic economic policies.
And when I look at what the Obama administration is doing he convinces me more that I should be -- Republican.
Because these are terrible mistakes they're making in handling our domestic economy so what do you make -- Specter's argument the Republican.
Party is now dominated by the extreme right and they're marginalizing themselves -- I think if people are gone -- That doesn't help bring the reality is the Republican Party is made up of a lot of people.
There is a very strong.
Contingent that has -- very right wing view on large social issues that -- -- had disagreements consider myself a moderate on social issues.
But an economic policy.
And our national security.
I'm very comfortable being a Republican and I'm very console being considered a conservative -- -- I'm.

Picture taking things over.
The streets of Manhattan but didn't -- -- let's take a look at this this is yesterday and he.
OK so that was yesterday in New York an area very familiar.
With planes getting really close to build what you think I thought it was terrible mistake.
And I just went from putter I guess I can't imagine why anybody would think that they should do that.
Come -- my lawyer enough pictures of even more Smart.
Yeah I mean -- -- I think originally they put out the word there was some kind of securities in New York.
Then they change your explanation.
To taking some kind of pictures publicity pictures or whatever -- -- in reality.
You'd think -- be enough common sense not to do that -- in that area where the worst attack in history of this country took place second you would think if they were gonna do it.
Could be all kinds of public announcements and it's gonna take place although I question why you would do it at all what why at a time like this are we spending money on.
There without all this criticism of the -- surprise but it's.
Potentially -- some executive.
Whose final round as you present.
If President Obama sucks today -- was a mistake he had nothing personally do with a red -- but that it was a mistake.
Does it just -- there.
It's a mistake you just guys they're good.
You know we're all this self righteous criticism of the use of private place and so I think this.
-- might have cost a lot more.
Then some -- final Washington and his -- headline that's scary something you know they got me thinking there -- sorcery and I -- more than anyone.
Open wound -- it's you know.
You know it's it's in the back of people's memory did it I mean they cleared out -- it's amazing when when you when people most to believe what you were forgotten about -- ember eleven there when you listen -- you remembered every day life.
And sure when things happen comes up more but it's always there I think about it every day and had -- been there I probably would have -- Well I was sort of reaction phone calls thinking you mayor we're gonna do this Air Force One language -- would have been having having been from Brooklyn.
To my mind I should guide you and I'm not I would have gotten that does -- -- I think Mike.
It's a little more jetBlue I -- -- where you're from Brooklyn they don't know what it really never done it again I would not like to do on the other and they don't let.
-- ask -- this -- other incident in New York City health commissioner saying potentially hundreds.
Of slight flu cases among kids in New York I don't know how they got that -- that whether -- really confirmed that.
Hum we could have a big crisis on our hands -- good but let's not talk herself into it with deal with a very carefully.
Visit this city has the best public health available this department of public health because one of the country.
They handle West Nile Virus -- -- I was -- McEnroe.
We ninety's we went to three years the West Nile Virus helped to -- actually with the CDC and I think help prevent what you know what I remember about that there.

Blair -- -- wrist if you don't constant double for the public an update -- more calmed them.
These things do faster we didn't have to talk -- about it.
All the time -- got to give them all the information.
You have them so -- don't know the cynic in me says maybe they know something you know honestly did.
Some people communicate better than others -- do a better systems -- communication.
I think your Health Department -- will handle this really really well.
I can't speak for the rest of the country I don't know that health services and a lot of cities don't have health departments -- -- like we do but the Health Department in New York City.
Really help to identify West Nile Virus.
And there are many great contribution in doing that -- they also handled anthrax remember that's -- had a whole anthrax thing which.
What it does and they don't want aside and I don't nobody get -- that I men.

Guess we're ready for and we we've been through I know we are New York City ready for problem for New York City is.
Has to rely when things get very very large -- the federal government and I don't know how -- the federal government is -- and I know that the department of health.
