Big crowd and there are very boisterous. And it's hard to get your speech and because there's a lot of applause which is -- -- -- against now there's a lot of very loud Ron Paul supporters in this home. What is your sense of honestly how many of them are enthusiastic about Mitt Romney -- -- -- -- good -- -- in the home -- that participated in. Many of the states even the state party chairman Nelson Ron Paul person so I think that's good I think they're being integrated into the party. The video they did in tribute to my dad was -- really heartwarming and I think -- really well. A very nice things ended and there's obviously some. Bitterness or -- anger earlier this week when there was a dust up over the rules a lot of the Ron Paul supporters here thought there was kind of a -- 55 by the Mitt Romney people.

He understands the give and -- Family -- Guns in this but also. The -- you -- from your fashion -- Position. Having surgery. Hostilities in -- surgery around. I donors who was not really president. Wasn't a real -- -- major theme of your father's campaign which was his opposition to the war. And there was a lot of talk about reducing spending getting spending under control and then it's -- message of his forever. But why no love mention of his strong opposition of the warming. The video is actually done by his video production company says. Editing was done by his people. I don't think it was intentional. And I really do you think about it did any other losing Republican presidential candidate get attributed. If they did siding with the special honor for the thirty years season in public service. The last thing you. Until Republicans. Went out. California we're not winning in New England maybe we ought to consider -- Ron Paul type -- Republican running in those places.
