You know pragmatic reasons I want my vote back this is a a good man who I believe I -- Has a right sort of nuances for the public performance and so on but I don't think the man is qualified to understand.
And what business needs which -- to be well informed if you're going to step in front of people.
And gain the confidence of the business community at the very least you should do was to get talking points.
And cut it out with the jokes save that -- -- private briefing your -- triple no.
You -- a lot of money you might say that I pay my taxes on a citizen of the United States of America that's you know everybody is an entrepreneur or that way so we we all need to.
Minimize our exposure.
To try to maximize our expenses while we were all I can -- and also businesses I believe you do -- several business we we do we make a living while you not hiring.
You know the problem is that there are so many barriers the government means well but it's become our mommy and daddy you know we never gave our kids an allowance.
Because in real life when you when you train your children at the end of the weaker get negative allowance of trying to speak in the -- -- of this of the street.
Not in the way the business communication.
When you grow walked -- you're used to getting entitlements which is where's my money mom and dad were all you know already gave me my money every week the government does not your mommy and daddy the problem is and how has become -- And the business community you know is faltering the soul if -- -- so many hurdles the V.
Christmas vacation and the Flag Day and I got a free forgot to time issue late Tuesday and double time over time and stuff.
Then we complain that all the jobs are going overseas we are now and insolvent country.
We or delusional beyond that if you put me in charge I would have -- I would have.
Presidential powers to the extreme cut trillions from the economy because we must.
The country is now insolvent.
It's -- astonishing thing and if the guys doing well Tracy.
A big admirer of kiss and Gene Simmons kicks and long time and he wants to take his vote for Obama wants to take it back what do you think I think he's not alone there's a lot of people that are really disheartened by what's happened over the years I mean I and I think you know this notion of change.
This is not the change I think people were expecting when they -- voting -- -- do -- didn't do you see it coming -- Jane let me know voted for him you know I don't know -- believes.
I believe that we -- we are hoping for was a man who surround himself with business leaders not professors from -- he did he's got to Jeff Immelt sitting right that is about the guy who runs American Express -- and not initially a few years ago as you remember the entire staff was overhauled from top to bottom.
The initial people that were in there that were advising our dear president were not qualified to do that never run a business by the way our president.
Remember I voted for the -- so I can -- this.
Our president had two years of local experience was born in Hawaii -- never run a business in his life so the least you could do was Toronto's surround yourself with.
The business community.
Until then why did you ever allowed to vote for him it was a moment of history.
I fell victim to the charm and I want to be a part of that moment in history.
And I am ashamed to say I didn't look at the rest of -- long and when you say a moment in history do you vote did you vote for because you wanted to see the -- African American I -- present -- -- that was it I did did you think that that would sort of banish racism from our society at all I don't think that's -- that's what that will never that will never go way of the human.
The human condition being what it is but I wanted to be on the right side of history emotionally.
Ethically morally and I hoped that our president would surround himself by business leaders -- in the opposite happened the opposite happened mommy and daddy came back into government.
And all of a sudden a a capitalist semi socialist system was enacted Greece here we com insolvency is a stupid word.
And it sort of means we're not far behind -- -- let me get into it difficult not a difficult subject but a touchy subject.
I put it to you.
That you'd -- us your feelings about President Obama when he gave that speech about Israel retreating to his 1967 -- high of -- you mobile in Israel and you -- Israeli citizen you know if that I am I didn't want -- was back.
Point that you read books I did.
And I will tell you why let's say leave the extreme happens and there's war god -- -- of certain part of the world.
What side do you want what side -- we -- if you lived in Israel and you saw that you're.
Fitness borders and our long on one side you've got the Mediterranean.
On the other side you've got 300 million people who prefer your not there.
The only problem with our president is in terms of this policy and saying something silly like go back to -- 67 borders he doesn't live there.
If you're the closer you are to where the fire is the more cognizant you are of the danger.
