Check with. Yet to that walking your talk about Depeche Mode and others think that not prolong when. They went out I am your Indians take in the you know they're still fine now. Yes I do know that they lost by one what's it mean to Toronto went and that they're still officially 31 in the lead okay. Yeah but for they have their place it troubles effect and that totally gives off my knowledge of and that's humanity and reclaim the center is so vacant action when they would like as the dot. Just to dig out the cubs does have a better chance against LA even incursion as a believable than they do against the cubs. I just think it would be a classic Cleveland story if somehow. In the same year that the cavs won the title the Indians won the title and then the browns didn't winning team. That would be classic Cleveland Browns. When I was a kid I remember that ahead classmate who had a folder schools and junior high school. It was a Cleveland Browns branded you don't know boxer and the logo one was the winning the winningest team in pro football. Which I guess just shows how old William but yeah. I mean you have stellar all around our the way back machine there. Cleveland Jeff joins us that you and you have Cleveland's deficit with me you can't you can't your phones or I would let one of our callers and your equipment about the debate in what people think you know has to happen tonight. Did change. Where the needle might be pointing at this point I want to go to John sweet meet Europe's debt has to strike between what is at 91030 is an anti right. Let's go to John in Peabody and see what he thinks has to happen tonight that the debate departing. Eight you know we sure are John go ahead. And equipment today. Listen. I think trump getting additional talk about it yes right I think I'd be shooting gallery would numbers. Okay patiently number. What should basically. At all. That she makes more one I was beaches and greed side people in the country like terms solutions. And then also. Struck a boat. The and be age he that helped. You know the medical cult situation where. I deductibles caught 515. Under goals. All since Obama edged as one way you looks. Beckham taxi talk about a legitimate and actual policies like obamacare now when he got out while you better right now. Number as being not in my. Donald Trump has been attacked by me here and everybody else what he's going back in his past Hillary has been trending now. Right now big guys the Libya. I really deal all of these things you can name a shop in less HE still standing at that podium. Oh and there is this country gonna sit and portable boats. I think that's the best line right what you just said it piece said that. It's the old Bill Parcells line into the Minnesota Vikings game you they've finally went to the Super Bowl. They get their butts kicked again and he goes in the locker room and eases those speeches doesn't just gonna ask you one question. How long you gonna let them push here around and the patriots won that game in overtime minutes item on the road to Super Bowl. Which they lost agreement. But at some point trump needs to utter a line like that how long you gonna let them push you around the clintons. Although. Losing candidates often will do that I can remember when Bill Clinton was running for president. And and Bob Dole with sort of gets what he was at nineties Essex and for the last two or three weeks of the campaign. Bob Dole's. Theme over over and said with more and more emotion as he was out on the stump was no where's the outrage where is. Outrage right people didn't respond to it and Bob Dole went down you know when it was a landslide it was a it was a pretty you know for pretty. Pitted I don't Ross an indictment of that tact I think that the meantime Bob Dole Bob Dole lost because the guy looked like the crypt keeper he called them the Brooklyn Dodgers on national TV and I was this time had come and going to saying when it's what it's we here at home stretch of election campaign of presidential campaign and and your pitch to the voters is how are you gonna do how will he look my opponent get away with this. That that sounds like you know of the tactical lose so what do you think is I don't what is the tactic though then because they were going under the assumption the polls are right. And that she is ahead in that he Haston. Make some kind of move tonight if he's gonna say I think it was fairway and we'd been following this campaign for a year and a half already the idea that there's something dramatically different it's gonna happen now and with less than three weeks ago. I think is just delusional. She has gotten to where she is by not losing her cool by staying focused on what she wants which his power. He has gotten to where he is by always losing his cool because it gets what he wants which his attention and adoration and adulation of the masses. This is the kind of thing that really gets him all pumped up they both like money Phil you don't make that. To osh on both sides. She's really. Hell bent on getting. One of the most powerful positions in this world that you can get he's really hell bent on what he's always been after which is an enormous amount of public attention. I think the idea that that bit on Wednesday October 19 that they're somehow gonna become different people and conduct themselves differently and behave differently in India wants to win. He's told yeah look if I lose this thing this is always sort disappoint. Fine I'll try won't do whatever I can for three weeks to two win I don't know that he's going to really go on and so have we heard this from Hillary. I agree Jeff but. He's got to Dave what he's done is not enough so far he's got to do something tonight and to me. Well point our editors pat Smith pointed Chelsea Clinton and did you told her. One story you told her the other I don't wanna be or anymore I'm sick can be and lied to by. Don't think listen as you know I have no use for either of these two major party candidates and and I always said that they are that both the most speak the truth speak to most compellingly when they're talking about each other. So I you know I share that it's an emotional level I share that sentiment. But I would say that if I were giving him genuine strategic advice or tactical advice is going to these last weeks it would be. Prove once and for all but you really hand. Hold yourself out with the presidential person men. Devote the ninety minutes this debate tonight not to making personal attacks. Not to focusing on Bill Clinton's women or on how much when he Chelsea Clinton makes for you know for her speeches. So for ninety minutes you can actually talk about genuine presidential issues national. Topics that really matter to people it might not matter at this point it would be too late and you know be like it's my ultimately might already be baked the cake I think if there was one radical change he would make he could make it would be that to talk about substance I don't think he's got what he's going to be. Offered up his best opportunity for that tonight because the subject matters are those that. People who are calling for Donald Trump believes he is best to solve the issues there it's you know it's immigration it's. Homeland Security it's jobs these these are things that people believed in him so he needs Iowa. If you were Smart about this and if you were able to control himself but I don't think you can. He would stay focused on what have been his strongest issues along I think all this talk that he needs to hit her with some kind of personal attack as. Just. Recipe for. You know that's a formula for making fun about personal attacks but I think that he should point out. Her weaknesses that I think really get under people's skin you know the fact that these emails have come around she says she went open borders. The fact that she says there's two different Hillary Clinton's one behind closed doors and one out you know in I grew up and all that but you really think that there are and neat. Undecided voters tuning into the debate who are going to be swayed by this if they haven't made up their minds yet. This isn't the kind of thing that's going to do it I think whatever whatever undecided vote is a left. Makes up its mind the basis of you know who's up who's down poles of the moment who seems to be more popular these are not people who are gravitating for whatever reason for one of the other because their stands on issues. It's wanted to be with a winning team if that you know there there's a fluctuation a little twitch of the polls that show me from surge and little bit you'll get a bunch of people saying you know another for trump. But I think. Overwhelmingly. From voters are locked in not going anywhere the Hillary voters are locked in an apple and anymore and that only that the trump orders are. Are open to argument that Hillary can make for herself and the Hillary voters are even hearing arguments right that trump can make so you know that this is. That we we we always say how polarized American politics is. It really is and you've got to countries that are listening to each other you know and we just have shared the same thing national border. You were targeted Jeff Jacoby from the Boston Globe that they 28 here on the WRQ Boston doc mornings from. She's briefly. Hell bent on getting. Smuggled over the world and yet he's really help but of what he's always been after which is an enormous amount of public pension. Coping with not worthy of a refinancing. Hope we don't you show that cannot opt out of the played on today he was accused of being what was it. A gratuitous here. Oh last night I can improve that you'll remember don't even try to haggard and remember. You're in a war Dennis Prager and I tried to get a month to distance themselves. Certainly not a war he's just gotten misguided. Again I'm like yeah yeah listen I. I told it's a compliment. It is a compliment any time anybody pays attention to someone else so much so. That they they speak of them and their role is not up and and the truth is actually Dennis Prager. Adam Muller I don't know I don't know people and I am desperate used to be on the year and in Boston he's Salem. Radio network. Long time well known and much of the country annually conservative radio talk show. Supporter trump but he's a great I've actually admired whose whose work and voted you know many times over the years. But I just find it. Drug police on the trump tree. But he his most recent column he offered to syndicated column in his most recent column which of them I didn't seem to last night. Goes after me for my my most recent column which was about. Religious the religious right leaders of the religious right. Overlooking all the flaws in trump that they were athlete intolerant when they were Bill Clinton and you know I I charge them with hypocrisy. And now Dennis Prager rates back and says that. I'm guilty of who wins it. It like as as a conservative who has not been on the trump for. Loose and some. I've always be used you know I have my own opinions I know they will often opulence of the people agree with me. For crying out I'm right Winger I live in Brookline Massachusetts eye and I were the Boston Globe. You know the last thing I expect is the you know the love and the adoration of the masses because I I you know I agree with everybody have always. Suppose people don't think you're right Winger and that's the irony I admire you advice to them is dude like check your Twitter went right tonight I'll be tweeting live I'm guessing you will be during the debate. Your Twitter of Jeff Jacoby is a right wing or I can assure you of anybody who listen I've told the story here my first. First column to Boston Globe 1994 the first line that first column was so what's a nice conservative like me doing in a newspaper likeness. I assure you compare our I've been called crazy right Winger you know the big at the heater all the things that the left like throughout the right. For as long as I can remember but my attitude has always been if I can dish it out I can take it right and if I can dish it out I should be willing to take it. So I have no objection to people you know throwing you know for the best but literally presented as the cutesy you know we have one in the corner we bring out these are really concerned pizzeria yes that's about the globe this must be radio because it Kohler if we're video I don't think we eliminated talk about retirement and a break is I think I have an answer your problem it's just come. What's the what's the highest quality beef Paris. Are a great day and crying when you go to web pony thank you to CoBiz beef. Interest. That's the name Don next to you read a question I gave you an answer real right thing the Rio it's not working he's not real right. Your very liberal. Socially or else but I think that's the most I've substantiate that they claim what we know we're quite literally coming liberal I don't. Mobile most of what I'm telling you is what most people would perceive you wouldn't like most people would people like you are you and most you believed in Massachusetts for would call me a liberal. Not that are calling you a liberal would say so because and you work at the wall be your trotted out is now. He's one of us but he's further right to an honest but that's not too far right eyes so that's how they would and UN well it's certainly true that the globe read much who we're at this point B is coming from the nine trotted out as anything. That's how the number of times there have been calls from my head and that I should be fired that it's disgraceful for the globe to employ somebody Uranus establishment conservatives. By establishment I mean Massachusetts well it's like having a job word you know I mean I've been in the media in this town effort you know more than twenty years so I guess that makes establishment and accidentally and is that how we is a real conservative you're not real concerned. So that's how would you think. I don't know how we consider it. It is hard Paladino is right how we had some conservative issues but by and large I don't think college about issues I don't think that that's about the political philosophy is. Is what drives him I don't think that's is that his modus operandi but on on most issues are they telling you agree that happen to be a few very big ones over the last. Few seasons were right in the right has gone nuts so I mean for me the two biggest ones are our honor immigration and trade. I think at the classic standard strong long time conservative position is. Always was should be. The one that I hold. I think a lot of people of have gone wrong on this but that's just debate within the conservative universe. I conservatives are used to meeting with the two that's one big difference on the right then on the left. You know whether you were conservatives Republicans have fought with each other over everything from. You know for. Moon from. From. From the war in Iraq to you go to two to abortion. Conservatives are used to fighting with each other and fighting over ideas on the left you more you more often been expected to march in lockstep. And not argue I think that when that went public in this cultural phenomenon is this notion that if you don't support Donald Trump you're some oh. The legitimate or not oil to the cause or not relieve the conservative off by poets is what is his cause what's your view in the Second Amendment which you view an illegal aliens being deported and what's your view on reducing the size of government. Okay how had been. It if I totally would like that would like to send me an email Jacoby globe dot com I will be happy to send him column after column after column that I Britain over the years. Staunchly defending gun rights the rights of gun owners staunchly. Calling for reducing government and abolishing. You know government bureaus and and shrinking the budget. Obviously immigration registered as one big one which we disagree I think vote that immigration laws need to be changed I don't think we need that the solution to him to illegal immigration is to keep people out at a distinct definition of what's legal what's illegal but. For more than twenty years I'd been making strong argument in favor of strong conservative positions. Doesn't mean that all consumers have to agree in everything but the idea that people think I'm not a conservative I think is. That that's the of the O Gillick people to be singular or people who just and in mine and and our Hillary just angry with you because you on the hook and that. And that certainly happened. You'll have ought to get mail or email you know letters emails. Twitter whatever from people who will say. I've been reading you for years we've always been one of my favorite columns but because you took position acts and subject why I'm never gonna read you again. I can't say they'll light until the next aisle people like that he rated yet so I assume it has this thing. 617666868. Q can you stay further call were quickly here did you ready. Let's get Mike in Boston Mike good morning your WRK out. Hello Leo's you know almost through us through the SQ will you go about these you know the project Erica videos. Didn't particularly in daily caller Russert today that that this Robert Kramer is the White House 342 times. Sort of bomber. He was unbelievably deal. You know while while he's mark while he's he's mocking Trump's forward. Four world for talking motor voter fraud but but he's in rural and. The trailer. We have to take about Kremer is the key again is another example of he to meet you represented more what's wrong with the Obama and Hillary right now because Obama. Has put himself out there to be the high road guy. Who then look you right in the united says he had no idea about the email server while he was emailing Hillary on that server. He tells trump to stop whining while he's inviting Kremer of the White House. Like Obama has been exposed time and time again and Kremer does that again I don't think that trump can spend much time on it tonight 'cause. As I've told you many times Hillary has these wiggle room outside where she's not directly connected to him and you have to connect dots. He takes time for the people that are watching tonight a you don't have the time and be. They're not looking to connect the dots they wanted to be kept it simple as. Others also it's also worth pointing out Obama can get away a lot of the stuff because of his demeanor. And as matches you know no drama Obama becomes something of it. That actually matters is that has. A measurable affect. And he can get away with saying things but he wouldn't be able to get away with it his total were different if he were saying it. In. In in in and it it it in an outrage Frankie manner. There's something to be said for being a little cool and calm little Colette and then you can get away with the thing were outrageous things if if you're manor is an outrage that brings global. I mean if you're run against Obama and you would go down a lot I mean what he eats what he said the public about the real deal is just. Absolutely if I were against Obama now frankly pirating gets Hillary Clinton now I would say this was the administration. That told us that the tide of war was receding but said America was not going to be involved in armed conflicts around the world anymore that said we had to pull our you know our. Naval ships being fired on three trying to pass at the past. Ten day year week by I ring Meehan allies in Yemen. This is the legacy this is part of the legacy of the president who says that the duke the the tide of war was receding. This is the latest column comment and I'm pretty gut that's pretty urgent problem giving it back and if I just primaries you know if you're right about you're absolutely right about demeanor that you. Can get away with certain things when it doesn't sound like you're. We it would Obama says it it sounds like because of his demeanor that he he's been measured that he thought it through. Whereas when Donald Trump's just screams that stuff out you don't know where it's coming from head if you just. Was a little more measured which I think he needs to be tonight I never got I never got a sense listening to Donald Trump that he has given ten seconds of thought to something before he said I never have and I don't think that's true by the way I think he had guys. I just think that knowing that I do I think they're I think at this stage of the game he has given thought to what he says but I think that is that's demeanor issue. Exactly like he sat there but that's DB that's what you like about it. Viewers seem like that. I know that one annoyed about I do think he's more reason to get a guy Byron. Tell you to watch is immigration speech we understand point plan I always get back and that that was pretty well pretty pretty right well argued in going to remember he was reading that from the script you're all over it mean when she usually doesn't like to do. Okay yes I mean that the da man educated he can read a script if you put it in front of him. But that's up when he he's could have a script at the debate. And then he very point it is very up and quite difficult. To stay on script to stay on here daily to write their jets have a great day thank you sir always a pleasure take care guys that's 672666060.
