And a half past 9 o'clock. News radio WORD. 106 point 3 FM good morning. Thank you for spending at least a portion of your morning with -- costs. -- Cassel had fewer services. Eagles advantage to -- numbers. Get right through -- 2329673. That's 232 WORD. Spartanburg is 5743673. That's 574. W award if you will. And that of course we have for you textures become an open text line which is seven point 1307. Whatever you like to talk about his final lord knows there's never. What -- Jumbo stuff out there right so wait a minute this is. This is the same magazine. Which. Much Arnold proclaimed what Obama's the first -- president. Not that long ago. Newsweek out today has a what's being described as a shocking new cover hit the road to Iraq. And coach come back no Mo little Mo why we need a new president. -- all shepherd writes it after some of the recent Obama loving the Romney bashing. Newsweek covers. The one hitting newsstands Monday is guaranteed to -- submit its. Under the picture of our dear leader of the words hit the road Barack why we need a new leader articles by Niall Ferguson a British historian. And economists. After an introduction Ferguson makes his case in his inaugural address Obama promised quote. Not only to create new jobs to delay a new foundation for growth he promised to build the roads and bridges the electric grids. And digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. He promised to quote this one Obama said restore science. George rightful place and wield technology's wonders to raise health care's quality and lower its cost. And Obama promised to transform. Our schools and colleges and universities. To meet the demands of a new rage. Well unfortunately. The president scorecard on every single one of those bold pledges. Is pitiful. He continued to make the case out today in Newsweek the total number of private sector jobs he still four point three million below. When it was in January 2008. That Russia this morning at 90% of the State's reporting now including South Carolina the unemployment rate went up to us again. Again. And meanwhile since 2000 a staggering three point six million Americans have been added to Social Security's disability insurance program. This is one of many ways Ferguson writes unemployment being concealed. In his fiscal 2010 budget the first -- presented. President invaded it did it in visage to instinct were. Growth of 3.2 percent and 22 and 4% in 20114. Point 6% he said in 2012. The actual numbers were 2.4. Percent in 42 and one point 8% to 2011. Few forecasters now expect growth this year. To be above 2.3 percent unemployment was supposed to be below 6%. -- -- It is averaged eight point 2% this year so far. So welcome to Obama's America. Nearly half the population. Is not represented he writes on a taxable return. Almost exactly the same proportion. That lives in a household where at least one member receives some type of government benefit. We are becoming the 5050 nation. Have a mistreating the taxes. The other half receiving the benefits of all of this despite a far bigger hike in the federal debt than we were promised. So. Hit the road. Barack. And don't you come back no more unusual. Thing Newsweek. They need to sell some news that a magazine something like that that journalists and its ultimate. Washington times. You know how Iran Iran may get big crowds and the Obama folks have men get very many people Obama Biden. According to the New York Times. The Obama campaign says now. Are you ready for this they're intentionally. Limiting crowd size at their events of that sad because of security and cost here's encore. We have plenty of time for big rallies. Campaign spokes woman -- It's -- -- he said between the rallies last Thursday our focus right now is on exciting our supporters and winning over undecided voters. And the smaller and medium sized events for the best venue to accomplish that because the president can closely engage. With the crowned. So they're deliberately limiting besides. Romney campaign told the New York Times a smaller turnout in Obama event shows. An enthusiasm. Gap. For Obama. A new poll -- 40% of eligible voters on the likely to vote. Here's Wall Street -- but the source actually a recent poll by Suffolk University. Come roughly 40% of Americans eligible voters. Said they'll probably sit. The November election now set up to Melbourne election David -- imperial locusts. Director of the Boston university's political research center called the poll survey of the other America. The roughly ninety million that make up that group. Bring mixed possibilities for President Obama. And Mitt Romney. Of the 800 unlikely voters polled 69%. Said they are registered to vote. Of those 44%. Said they voted for Obama. In 2008. So when you look at it undecided independent whatever a lot of folks and you know thank. That boy those are those all could be run and lot of these folks clearly this poll backs it up. Are people that voted for Obama. -- -- So if if if a lot of people you know you hear from the insiders all the time they call this program the semi tech Smith qualities people don't vote that means Obama's gonna win. Well here's a poll that. Absolutely is the opposite of that. Because it I mean he's just one poll but that. 69%. Said their registered to vote. And of those 44% said they voted for Obama the last time. And the way it's reported by the Wall Street Journal the numbers show of the challenged the Obama campaign faces. In trying to replicate what they did in 2008 and perhaps why they're putting so much effort and money. Into grass roots get out the vote work in precincts and neighborhoods across a dozen battleground states. The guided the study says he thinks the president might need some of those on the likely voters if he's gonna win quote Obama's looking at the polls and saying. I don't have enough support among the likely voter -- so why you need a slice of the likely voter -- -- -- Don't look. Now for the other side. We have controversy well first -- Romney. Has issued a statement. 'cause we have this Missouri congressman. Who's running for the senate as a Republican. Who said something that. Is in the media today that's considered controversial. But I'd like to know why but Romney and Ryan. Quickly jumped on this according to CNN. A spokeswoman for Mitt Romney wrote late. Last night that the presumptive GOP presidential nominee and his running -- US representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. Do not share representative Todd Akins sentiments on raped. Here's the statement governor Romney and congressman Ryan disagree. Was mr. Akins statements. Andy Romney Ryan administration would not oppose abortion. In instances. Of rape. So okay it's double reason why can't vote for. And I'm sorry. I -- -- a neutral -- -- You'll start attacking me. Again my position upset that so many times when we stated again. If you're truly against abortion you're against abortion for any reason. You know a lot of politicians. Like to pander for votes and they'll say well. I am pro life except. In the cases of rape incest or. The health of the -- As horrible as rape is as horrible as incest is and in the have to make that decision although -- I gotta tell you. I've never run across one single human being mother or. I know I would. So I have come to the conclusion after a lot of prayer about this. And the point has to be made before I've played Todd Lincoln's comments for. Is why. Do they listen if you have great there's a crime and it's a lot more than just crime but it's crime. Incest. Still gets a wall if they describe. And yes a horrible decision to have to make but you explain to me why and innocent baby. Should be punished with the death penalty what does what does that baby ever to. The baby is the one suffering the ultimate penalty right. Of color or what justifies the -- nothing -- the death of a baby nothing but what has our reason is wrong to Angela unborn it's not about. What you want I'm sorry to be so blunt about it. 'cause I know how horrible -- -- in an incensed and all these things. But really in a case of life and -- is it really about what you want. It is about what the baby needs. A chance. -- and I wouldn't there and I didn't do the interview so I but I but I am kind hearing a little bit about that it's sort of like that from representative Todd -- Again from Missouri this was during an interview. With the fox TV affiliate affiliate KD VKTBI. In Saint Louis here's part of what he said. Personable from what I understand from doctors that's really -- if it's a legitimate rape. Borrowed the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down but let's assume that maybe that didn't work or something. You know I think there should be some punishment that the punishment ought to be in the rapists. And and not attacking the child. Yes I did that last part is what caught my ear and I don't know how. How Romney right anybody can disagreement that the punishment should be accused the child should be against the rapists. Now and I I I'm just dumb I don't know what he's talking about if if it is a what do -- legitimate and legitimate rape to female body. Has a way to prevent conception. Yet you have it and -- -- I have no idea now. In -- know why but why he is a Stewart again and tell me why this is offensive baby but -- mark. First of all for what I understand from doctors that's really rare if it's a legitimate rape. Borrowed the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down but let's assume that may be that didn't work or something. You know I think there should be some punishment but the punishment ought to be in the rapists. And and not attacking the child. Now I don't have figures I in the big east claiming. That. Pregnancy it comes from a rape is a -- your sang it sounds to me like and forgive me -- an oxymoron. -- -- Legitimate. Rape. Well the only thing I think about there is no rapists legit. Well I do what I I can't read his mind that what is because we have sometimes these claims of parade. That are labor later proven not to be. Legitimate rape -- that it being a legitimate or or claim. Not a legitimate rape that he's just he's crazy I mean that's just -- -- thing to say. Mean well he's apologized for it even -- issued a statement that said in part. In reviewing my off the cuff remarks it's clear that I misspoke. In this interview and it does not reflected deep empathy I hold for the thousands of women who are raped and abused every year. But I -- missing that Romney Ryan jumped all over this and sit in their administration. They are in favor of abortions for people who were raped our -- he's in Duncan. -- -- and part add. Content. And content when -- pro life. Out out scriptures says it that every child is it got wrecked and out. -- I'd personally at that. Time that was arranged -- got pregnant either not. But I'm telling near. I am completely pro life didn't -- Eight let me get pregnant. I understand it would be like trying to. A hard -- that deal went looking at that out every day telling where it came out it deeply love that's where. The -- you know it could go to the point where you know what there are a lot of Stanley about -- that would adopted baby it they wouldn't care where. And yeah so I. You know I I know women will jump all over this guy's -- for the legitimate -- part of it but I think in the second part I I think. I think he's speaking the truth. Punishment should be on the -- not try and. Apparently ultimately you know how many women and not go up against there right at then court. -- -- -- that's true because we'd -- it's an embarrassment it'll walk Mac and look at. But make the woman looked back while he got great big issue dropper you -- -- under. Are dressed provocatively try to take that one well we see that all the time on what law and order and in CSI is written about in books I don't know what percentage is. But. But it is pretty high. -- -- -- ever you know took either want my. People to court one on. Well because. I wanna look at the turn it did not have enough people had a couple of Brothers who are willing to end up ain't telling and it app and and yeah the wind was. I'm breaking out there like it a little what. And act and it was just the -- back in the eighties and I give you know it applied elected. Did they did they ever catch the guy or have a suspect -- -- now known to. -- -- I'm saying is that you know I know about it traumatic experience Irwin and you're not let that out yeah. But you know if we look at that act today you know dot org Jane I'll light. And you know I understand you saying that you're -- that a lot of people I you know magnet yeah right -- negotiate. There may even not -- that. Where I am completely agree with -- And I'm truly in every respect of the word petroleum pro life. I just think these people who have exceptions Becky. I I just don't consider them to be pro life because the company promised trouble we get into the that we are making a statement and then turn right around -- make exceptions sport. Right and I'm I'm not certain areas next steps and then add another light -- being critical danger. Yes and by the way my understanding it is that a long time since I've looked into that that that is extremely rare that does admit that because a lot of times. What what kind of help are we talking about are we talking about mental health you can make the case for example. Let's say a mom's got a couple of kids if she makes the case so this is gonna put an undue hardship opponent our families can drive me crazy. -- then in some definitions out there that could qualify. For her to it's it's to save her quote quote mental held. Didn't didn't you would do an abortion. I just think the minute we start making these exceptions to end the credibility of the statement that were pro life I think just really falls apart. And we know were Obama stands for me to Obama's broad on this and then this is were Mitt Romney's record comes up. About being pro abortion in claiming how to be pro life and in this little story comes out. We find out that the official position of the Romney Ryan administration. If it turns out to be that way after November. Is that they're they're for abortions in cases -- or if -- Thank you -- 923. News radio W award. Know and first of all -- what I understand from doctors that's really terrific that's a legitimate race. Are the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down but let's assume that maybe that do work or something. You know I think there should be some punishment for the punishment ought to be in the rape us. That and not attack his job. Missouri congressman and a Republican Todd -- in he was running for the senate still lives six term congressman though. Running against senator Claire McCaskill. Lou after the controversy. He issued a statement saying in misspoke. In review -- off the cuff remarks it's clear that I misspoke. It does not to reflect the deep empathy I hold for the thousands of women -- were raped and abused every year. Those who perpetrate these crimes are the lowest of the low and our society. And their victims we'll have no stronger advocate in the senate to help ensure they have the justice they deserve. City. Believes deeply in the protection of all life and I do not believe that harming another innocent victim is the right course of action Claire McCaskill. Jumped all over this quote it's beyond comprehension. That someone can be so ignorant about the emotional and physical trauma. Brought on by a right to. Yeah well that's part of the statement but what the cache coal is avoiding his. -- what many politicians have a tough time with. And I don't know why they have a tough time if they really are pro. If if your pro life your pro life you know to kill that kid. No matter of I mean I am right on this right. -- rape incest whatever you don't killed no excuse you -- make it legal to kill that kid right now but it is legal now of course you don't have to have any reason. Just income interest and it inconvenienced. Widget I applaud any congress and -- -- reason. Yeah well that's right I applaud congress -- it. For taking that stand Romney Ryan issued statements that may disagree. So anyway just nothing to -- but by the way. If you're congressman. And your -- -- a trip. And your pay -- out of your own pocket. And you get drunk. And you decide to go skinny dipping in the Sea of Galilee. Should you continue to serve in congress. She women and naked. In the Sea of Galilee why I think it would make your great country so. Did you think immigrant country and trying to walk on water. I didn't say well did -- when we come back at 930 news radio WORG. 935. -- I don't out there. -- to witness here on news radio WOR DRE Politico dot com. FBI team probing GOP trip -- drinking and nudity in Israel the FBI. Probably a late night swim in this Sea of Galilee. It involves drinking numerous GOP freshman lawmakers. Top leadership staff. And one new member of congress according to more than a dozen sources including. Eyewitnesses over the humanity. During -- fact finding congressional trip to the holy land last summer represented Kevin your order Republican Kansas. Reportedly took office closed jumped into the Sea of Galilee. Joining a number of members their families and GOP staff during a night out in Israel. The sources told Politico other participants including the daughter of another congressman. Swim fully closed. While some lawmakers. Partially just wrote. More than forty people took part in the late night dipped in the seat according to sources who were participants. In the trip. They just forgot their paintings well maybe they thought they get baptized. You right there and remembers who went over there this year and it's part of thing you do is a tourist you know you you you Baptist. It's if we're Jesus is said in the Bible to a walked on water. So for -- I was -- no claim as far as I can tell Alonso. This guy was trying to walk on the water I think that's when -- well worth the but reportedly did it they'd they'd -- for -- -- money. And so. They still around presenting -- is -- in the mood allowed. There I and I I do not know. Late nights when I'm just gonna -- our August 18. By the fact that it happened in the Sea of -- -- Well because of the way Christians certainly you know damn phone I I I know it may be a -- -- -- Christians do get naked. Now they do some to aid the it has been reported. As a matter of fact I'm sure you've been -- well I'm not so sure. -- careless and Taylor's hi Carol. I don't know how many people. Where. James Robertson and have heard -- oh yeah and I need yeah. His mother was -- -- she -- to have him right and he and his life has really been a blessing and they've reached out to you know orphaned and you know if he he has been a blessing me anyway. In his ministry. In in a text -- brought it up. I mean what if what if that baby that you choose to destroy. Could have been the person to find a cure for cancer. But to be president or -- yeah I mean. I just don't understand I guess I do in political terms. Why a politician's. They wanna say yes and -- pro life however. You know what whatever they start however thing. I believe there should be exception for blah blah blah blah blah. And the I just in my way of thinking Carroll who is weakens their credibility. Right. All right thank you man some of the text messages. Russert the official position of the Romney Ryan campers and abortions okay in cases of rape. And Paul Ryan has changed his position. And gone against his religion in order to run for vice president this makes me rethink my support if he can change his mind on a fundamental principles such is life. Then what would make me believe he wouldn't change his mind on -- Well -- -- double checked us again because the NC. This is of course this is from CNN but the headline news Romney and Ryan disagree with they can read remarks his campaign. A spokeswoman for Mitt Romney wrote late Sunday that the presumptive GOP presidential nominee and his running mate. US representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. Do not share represented Todd -- sentiments on raped. -- governor Romney and congressman Ryan disagree -- mr. Bacon's statement. And they Romney Ryan administration. Would not oppose abortion in instances. Of rape that's a quote from Romney campaign spokeswoman. Amanda. In a Burke. He was -- -- -- answer your question about whether or not he's thought abortion should be legal in the case of rape. And that he said what he said. So according to -- in their quoting now this is CNN again but they're quoting. Then a Romney -- administration would not oppose abortion in instances of rape. Rush no no -- is legitimate unless Islam is involvement can be junior when a bonafide. A poor choice of words was used by -- here -- point 5% of women. Who are raped ever get pregnant. Don't know where that comes from the that's from the text -- -- Aiken means legitimate only in that. It is a true -- not as though it's justified. Or something how ridiculous. Russ what does that -- what does that aborted baby you've grown to become a doctor to find the cure cancer. This when -- the skies and idiots and the same person thank you Lisa. Do do do -- What a bad person can use for something horrible. God can use for something good and raise that child up to know him so -- distraction. Rape and -- account for less than 1%. Of annual abortion numbers and I knew it was low. But I didn't I didn't know it was that -- Let us. Converse was Frankie in -- -- Well good morning certainly struck me. I have a simple question -- are often do you think it plays and receive about -- make it. I scientifically. It is 70%. Over 7% water which means all of us are probably bodies in one city or the other one point. Let it. Guns if you don't it's not -- great well yeah I'm telling you scientifically there are published in at least on -- scientific. Scientifically. The entire world is almost an hour. Which made -- feel -- when it does not show -- one spot and supposedly Jesus or who ever walked out or whatever. So you at least have borrowed. By you've got blanket but I. In the -- go into -- -- other -- did you go to Pacific Ocean yeah. That's because -- do not sit directly over top Galilee. And how Obama got there for you. Testimony. -- this comes from a guy who sleeps in a coffin. Thank you for like I did this text message Ross I'm a Christian and I have been naked in the sea of park oval. That can finally rest out of Cologne said there aren't a lot of beaches over there that you can. -- nude so when Israel via over that I'd never and then I never knew that there. -- wants to comment on this. There are no broccoli should look more like morning. I'll -- you open up a book which chapter 21 -- should. It pistol or nature. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Gonna wanna wanna be a bit saw. It -- there actually if you if you put out an umpire created so. But they award naked. Well as I've pointed out Christians have been naked and I predict will continue. To go through periods of Nikkei business. All the bag the -- down the road to a more -- Married but it all -- all out because it out you know there's digit but make no blood no big deal. Captured. Our did a political story says that of all the people who were on the trip. This is -- rumors that -- a majority leader Eric Cantor. Who was the senior most GOP lawmaker on the strip Israel. Was so upset. About the antics that he. Rebuked. -- thirty do they hate he rebuked the 30 lawmakers the morning after the August 18 2011 incident saying. They were distracting from the mission of the trip him. Majority whip Kevin McCarthy Republican California. Was also on the privately funded excursion which means. Two of the top three Republicans were part of this -- leader candor nor McCarthy. Went swimming -- it died reportedly. But some of their staff did and Russell is the mission of the trip. -- it was a fact finding mission. Well I don't know about what facts. You on the -- congressional -- so I think they found out that he likes to bathe nude. And now known fact. She paid cantor spokesman confirmed to Politico that the majority leader dressed down instinct choice of words his Republican colleagues. And that a staffer. Was later interviewed by FBI agents. The appearance questions focused on who wind is into the Sea of Galilee that night and whether there was any propriety. According to be -- sources -- Skewed to -- and -- into Obama's. The so displeased he does really well. Is from Leo comes out after you know the the big scandal Homeland Security at -- new post as the story this one the -- a basket judge. Took strikes from the public record. The more scandalous details of a bombshell. Sexual. Discrimination lawsuit against are you ready for -- -- -- Janet Neapolitan. And the department's. Sex -- sexual discrimination now I'm Hannity and she's hiring -- Some people. There's that dividend of of the sexual discrimination lawsuit against Janet Napolitano and the Department of Homeland Security. And that the feds have asked a judge to strike up the ports that refer to this is and your post not me. Oral sex. And and odds bathroom. Price. I don't you wanna -- right. Bombed a little details are included in senior law enforcement officials James he sued claiming retaliation. Anti guy bias. The filing claims top immigration aid Suzanne bar. Humiliated a male employee. By calling him in his hotel room and screaming that she wanted his. Blank in the back of her throat that's a quote. It also states that -- close aide to Janet -- Toronto who went on leave this week after the suit appeared. Quote rewarded those male employees who would play along. With her sexually charged games in quote the pranks allegedly included moving three male employees office equipment. Computer's. Name plates in -- men's reference. Those details say a government motion to dismiss the suit quote serves only as an attempt to embarrass. Or harass senior government officials and therefore should be east. On the record there. Should be stripped. From the public records on fifth. -- it. And so we go all the shenanigans at the Department of Homeland Security agent at Apollo time we've got. Republicans on a trip to Israel -- different in the Sea of Galilee. And you know a plural undecided independent like me is supposed to decide who to vote for. This is why I took the position a long time ago. Will again be -- -- I just don't like any album. Why why some of us are saying we only -- her to her to dance -- but -- well and it could surely got to know how you actually vote against -- homeowners line. I did that and I loved it on the serious note this text message on the Paramount bank text line 71307. -- I'm so happy. That Romney and Ryan have so many positions the far right wing disagree with -- hopefully they won't vote for him and therefore be marginalized. Even -- Yeah that right wing you know were so extreme over here on the right wing. Let me say something -- I am. I don't know what -- he's saying. In my life experience. That's more extreme. Then the smaller of an innocent child for whatever reason. If you know what he's saying it's more extreme. You'll moderate leaning left Winger. -- -- -- Yeah marginalized. And you you little moderate. Leaning left people. You're you're you may very well be true but kicked again. If you do you deserve -- 953. -- just a couple of emails to finish up our program today. So rust from this -- I Claire McCaskill has made it very very clear. That trauma of raped. Is greater. Than the trauma of killing your own baby. I don't understand it nor agree with that but I do get. What's clear here that journey into barber. I yeah. It just -- a veteran politician she's gonna jump all over this and turn it into something that it isn't -- that really. What these politicians do best right I didn't get to the other email let me tell you folks thank you so much for listing we appreciated any and all memento with comments were. Good lord willing will do to get tomorrow in the meantime stay tuned Mike Gallagher is next Rush Limbaugh at noon right here unused radio WORD.
