Who's my fear any just Dave anywhere anytime to anyone of the continent's any country name one foreign needed that you respect and look up to anybody. I guess I'm having an all up poll moment in the former former president implement all right now I know anybody in the world do you like. Anybody take any leader. -- no true now. That's. This comes on the heels of President Obama warning that a false 13 party candidate who has not really a big chance of winning. Could potentially be a vote for top and do you agree with that was set up a brain freeze should we be concerns about an appetite. I don't libertarian I'm gonna need therapy because of this guy because it Gary Johnston. It's it's so frustrating and what's most frustrating to me is that he's fighting to get into these debates he wants a a seat at the table. Which did not they're saying yes do you should have one now and not doing. What are you doing and libertarians are always get a bad reputation people say oh they don't know anything about foreign policy that's not sure why don't funny about our policy ramp almost funny about on policy. But Gary Johnson as a representative for libertarians in this election teens tend not know very much about foreign currency it's an. He's getting briefings from Sarah Palin you cannot. Do you think. Sarah and it's not a gotcha questioning our gotcha question out there if they don't need not exactly can one person that I'm finally that you respect do you think that he still deserves a seat at the tape I think our eagerness is left campaigns type I I'd like to hear everybody's voice but for immediate disqualifying moments he one you have to be present and want to -- proposing to have to meet with these aren't. And leaders and why do you land a scenario want to know what he's does a state dinner. Did get to meet ever back. Then a lot of downed animal and somebody lost. And that an is that our act ago. An Obama talked about voting for third parties eventually giving a ten to Panamanian yet GAAP and I truly green is that I'm still a big believer that it's better to vote for someone and no one its of its of police and a vote of people have lost their lives over in fossil hard work. So why I know there are people like I've heard say unmistakable his actions that's not good enough. Because even if people say your vote is thrown away it is better to use it and not X. Joyous talking to a clip. I am yes aren't out you know what because this is an old clip but I was the pileup but god but he says he's smoked marijuana may be that's the problem look at this look at this. I plots. There would be an examination of me and bill well that's because we are and what we've done. Enough based on math. Husband Douglas I'm not bad for a host of that in. Not side inside those cameras are supposed to. Yeah. That's not yeah Ted and read I don't. I don't know what he was trying to what's he trying to make a point we don't know I he's trying to be funny but this easy funny that he does not get what you. President.
