"belcourt north dakota" Discussed on KLIF 570 AM
"Six two six abuse of power those are the words of Nancy Pelosi where we're heading right back down the same path I I I apparently Democrats did not get the message that saw the president's approval rating go up during the entire impeachment fiasco it's always standing beads of the leading democratic candidates for president go up I mean I suppose they could just keep impeaching him and losing trials and impeaching him and losing trials and turned a truck victory into ultra bland slide but again it would be nice I think just from the standpoint of the benefit of the country if they decided to why don't know pass some laws or something maybe even repeal a few one eight six six five oh Jimbo one eight six six five oh five four six two six this is Steve it adds your North Carolina hello Steve Hey hello there I would like to know what we've had this before have you not have you noticed that there's a certain sense of deja vu yes I have to I want to wish you good biker out way of doing things I wouldn't you know like JFK is got his own brother is there's Attorney General and then they won't eight fine well hello there what very any such strangers Twitter thank you got together on the sailboat you're not on the weekends and and figure this stuff well yeah I I I admit that it's interesting to contemplate how earlier presidents would have reacted to social media that that's certainly true I think any president would have found it to be a great benefit presence of always chafed at the the notion of a of the middle man if you will passing along the information to the public gatekeepers says they've become known and that's really Richard Nixon would have been a a huge Twitter fad but most any president the very few presidents have love the press probably JFK as much as anybody like the present even he had to famous feuds with the various newspapers of the like so yeah it would be interesting it it is a phenomena that the here I mean there's nothing there's no putting that genie back in the bottle to Ted in Jamestown New York hello my job hi on you compared to a house book in part be a house party and I said and the result is often missing on yes sorry I think of them as a spoiled brat and after three three plus years you will learn not to be solved well he he's learned a few things but he hasn't learned of this and and again it's not for my benefit or yours it's for his own benefit Wallace he's got to be spoiled Gregg at then it is for our benefit yeah but but my point is simply that that that not being a spoiled brat would be to his benefit that's all I'm saying why you might want to think about about behavior that that benefits his reelection and not just the again give a gift to every passing impulse so what do you think that does not look for years will change him I wouldn't know whether whether or not I do know this that that another four years of him at his worst is better than the best Democrat I do know that I'm not thrilled with the choice but it's unclear what enough for me arm in the air I therefore a dog doesn't yeah on the carpet if it's not taught after three years it's probably good except the fact that it is acceptable it may envy may in fact not change and I repeat if he does not change he will still be better by far than any of these Democrats running for president so while I'm not thrilled with everything about the president but I certainly have no problem making a choice of the selection none what so ever Terry in Belcourt North Dakota good evening where gimbal I just want to thank you for a teaching me so much about the everything well I thank you I hope I hope I die I'd say say accurate things not yes yes you know if you read for president of both for you in the heart well that's kind I would I would say this that we could do a heck of a lot better than me but thank you what about your one heck of a good guy you're good person and I just wanna thank you in America should be proud of you and your parents should be proud of you too well your children in your wife's well thank you very very kind of you know okay and have a nice night then bad blood well hi there very nice about that just a just a nice little Valentine's the the gift there I I appreciate that there that's very nice of you are we gonna Steve on Long Island New York next up hello Steve agent thanks for taking my call again get it thank you I have to say I think if the Democrats keep your detail and regular have a first time two times each president we elected and it's crazy how they think of the crime and how a lot of people are upset the fact that the president voices his opinion which he is allowed to have he is allowed to have an opinion this is not about legality it is about of what is best for him and it would have been best if he had expressed this in private and I definitely and I also want to say that I'm very happy and impressed that up okay can be back in the White House a fine young lady is very smart and she will help move the agenda forward yeah I I heard that she was back I was confess I got a surprise me that I didn't even the even the the former communications director there who's of back in the White House I was I was happy to hear that too I idea yeah I I yeah I I don't know the full the full details about Hawaii she's back but good for her yeah and I hope the daily yeah go go ahead I do think that it shows the fact that they're not completely non white out well I hope that you're correct quick.
