Point two degrees outside. Feels like five. This is Michael Goodwin for Tom hourly. Ask him to call an increase their thirties aren't. Soft. -- how's the weather near you. He's stuck in traffic -- -- clean up a little bit be cleared up a little bit. And also -- person here for could be the Pope who is or person of the year it can't be your mom. But now thank you for waiting what's where are you right now. One nor. And things like and a break out bridge where I -- then -- At almost our -- One -- It's not improving at all. Not really. I'm actually been sitting -- exactly the same that or I'd met the -- is an inch or. Well WB say thank you very much for that update thank you very much. We're asking folks call and tell us who -- person years and Dave in Williams bill Hoosier or person. All of us -- that might present here is -- -- -- two billion. No you know she was on the -- she was one of the ten finalists. Were sent. It. They have changed over the years haven't there. Well Kathleen Sebelius was in the top ten which makes me wonder who was in the bottom ninety. You know. Oh. Oh. -- Here you know from from way. Well coming yeah. Hope to double what. It is. Gore. Created by. A couple of big push that's about two hours. Update thank you very much for -- were really appreciated. It -- Art from Niagara Falls are your called in about person of the year. Yet the I'm glorious I'll. We were sitting at those that are supper table and when she's said that or people that died and been crisis -- and I've forgotten them. And by that should never -- the the year Hillary Clinton and she turned to me and she says. What was in the line. -- Oh -- I can't remember. All the watches and at the hearing yet -- Us why does that matter now. It meant and what does this man. -- and that ship right up in my way. And the other thing I want to question you want. A boat -- this the information that you can with startling. Well you know here's a thing. I don't think Ted Cruz the economy is that -- they brought this up during his his election. During the primary the other Republican candidate brought up and -- content column red head which I -- ridiculous I mean obviously Ted Cruz dot com as his father was a Communist his father. Worked for Fidel Castro and had a change of heart. He had a change party he laughed but are these perfectly in welcome to do that but there's the family. As a history of communism but -- would take -- and the reason read a lot of Americans he's a conservative right think on. On on. Things fiscal. But the fact that he agreed to work for the Chinese Communist Party bosses who ran this company. Who were attacking an American company and am at the Fella who owns the company Jordan fishing I've spoken to. He's in his seventies. And cruise's legal team. I can't attribute the decrease in south or average -- cruise sat at the -- legal team told the old man the American who founded this company that they were driving business. The Chinese were found guilty of of stealing his Paris trade secrets. And ordered to go to pay eight point four million dollars. And they appealed it lost the appeal when they lost the appeal Ted Cruz or his legal team turned to the old man and said you're gonna die before you seen any of this money. Well. -- wondering. It's a lot of ammunition for the Democratic Party would tell. Me I mean you want backed down any Republican and thank. Would they be able to use -- issue. Well first of all most of them most of the people in politics in Washington warriors and many think. That anybody everybody deserves to be represented at the bar in the United States and you know what I agree with that but. It doesn't mean that the person who represented -- of the murderer. Of those old the congress party which doesn't mean that that person should be elected its -- of the United States and it. Yes but we're not all lawyers some of those voters are not -- lawyers and when we hear information like that. It really turns us off on the person I don't care what the lawyers think it's it's it was a terrible information aren't surprised they didn't use it. Are they did -- invaders in the primary spent 3.5 million dollars on TV ads trying to knock him out with that information but he was. -- mile point he was you know talking about all what's not true I'd never worked on the client right only reviewed three for three grieve it and everything that's a lot. A complete -- pitch that he met with the client he targeted decline. He found he pitched and he won the business he led the business and he got a big bonus -- at some people say half a million others say a million I don't know what it is but Ted Cruz got rich are the Chinese -- a Communist Party. Now the question I have I don't think he's economies of -- bad judgment right. But what I what I wonder is this when he's about to vote for on the China issue. Should he be allowed to vote. We shouldn't he recuse himself because he got rich off on. I I would agree with you I would agree if you -- I'm just so disappointed. Well you know we had enough of what it seems cannot tell you what Ted Cruz will be a reliable vote -- the one person that Ted Cruz cares most about in the world. Is Ted Cruz. The -- are you going to be for a couple more days yes there. How about giving us a brief run down your history as you've been because it's now so interest. Well you know the most interesting part of my life is quite the time I've spent buffalo. All right I I came from here I'm left for a short time because my parents were they went to high school here. With a couple different schools here according Orchard Park in Hamburg. We moved around in my school years. And I left when the army went to college actually came back for UB laughter quickly went to Washington. And I've I've lived all over the world I've worked all over the world and all that whole time art every single day. I thought about buffalo because there's nothing like it. There's nothing like it I lived all over the world I've worked in terrorist lived in Moscow lived in Seoul I lived in Central America during the Contra wars. I've been to Afghanistan I've been all over the world nothing compares parents doesn't appear you know line. Because the people. The people I came home in 2010 because I missed it. I'm miss that I am innocent I meet people want to come home to buffalo if we all have jobs. That's different than the other thing his. The when you said two people that you know who actually lost their life you Basil what's -- and business. Is that simply could not have them not that I'm saying you're fabricating about what is this an actual fact. Yes it is certain that what happens. When there is a leak of information especially not targeted because it's no wanted to do something. Back out. Our particular aspect of NSA spying for example he could have not released. Thousands of documents he -- at least twelve right but with then that treasure trove of a thousand documents. There is cryptic with references to informants. People who are let's -- in Africa or Asia or whatever work giving the CIA information and they don't. Normally username but sometimes the user names but they describe them in a way that they -- that of that the people who wanna kill someone configure our Politico. And they killed them. It's with. See this you know I keep thinking a believer that is deep throat yet he could've done this in a better way. Well you know what. I don't think he was -- -- you know he went to go get that job in order to do business. He went to get that job in order to do this and I can't look up to a guy. Coup didn't think about it I don't think I don't frankly I don't think -- knew that he would end up killing people for with what he did I don't think he knew that. I'd just. I'd really questioned his motivation. This news. It just makes you wonder but like I think that would that would that the throw would Nixon and so forth. It could've been done and I -- much better way it just event like you -- lives are lost how many if you -- to people how many more people died because. Well I mean about the to meet recruitment so I don't know them personally -- one person -- the others. Through my in my experience with work and I wanna I wanna clean up I'm I'm not -- -- -- -- -- you and you.

On he still incredibly popular Republican candidate for office in Western New York. Really is helps when -- endorsed by your -- Carl Paladino. Judge -- tour. People say he went over the top four supreme these Supreme Court because -- So -- he certainly I don't judge on tour are believed a month or would think that Carl Paladino this year. You know. Melissa I appreciated to locals that's good. Thanks -- really appreciated. Or -- or do it here we're we're we're talking about -- time magazine. Made the -- person of the -- -- this is a liberal. Liberal. Magazines. Now I understand that the Pope is perceived by some to be here rather liberal figure. But -- it's just you know I'm surprised. That the Pope overcame. The juggernaut for. Edward Snowden the speaker. Bomb I noticed that he overcame Miley Cyrus the singer. I wonder if at the last three. It's in the last three people who Miley Cyrus. And and Edwards note in. -- Francis. Wonder if they thought of having were. Right I mean -- love Lucy Edwards and were met Pope -- not so much. And the fact that they even considered my siren blows mine. -- -- but you know. Time magazine has -- this -- this so many times. And this year I think he might you know partly probably -- as liberal organization. Very Democrat oriented they probably thought that room they were advancing. Liberal theology. By by advancing. And the Pope as -- As their person of the year. But you know I'm not convinced that the Pope is so liberal he certainly is not art compromising on game and to our lower portion. But the way he talks about things. You know Darwin when asked about abortion I got to read history it's just this time's -- time magazine's person of the year article was written by Elizabeth dias who actually. Interviewed with -- us earlier this evening an incredibly well written beautifully written piece about the Pope come to find out the writer. Studied theology in college actually has a theology degree so you eat come to (%expletive) you figure out why this article was so. So interesting and so well written and so reflective of those of the Catholic theology. Here she talks about he's quoted saying of women who consider abortion because of poverty or -- who can remain unmoved before such painful situations. Of gay people he says if -- homosexual person -- of goodwill and in search of god I am no one to judge. That's. He also about -- -- which is something in Rome I'm very concerned about two divorced and remarried Catholics who are by rule. Forbidden from taking communion he says that this crucial rite of communion is not a prize for the perfect but a powerful medicine endorsement. For the week. He takes Catholic. Theology. Very seriously he's not gonna change aunt and much of anything certainly not fundamentally. But the way he talks about the way he makes it's so approachable people understand his theology does not make -- hardened heart. I'm just I'm impressed the guys are actually very impressed that the liberals at time magazine. We're had the foresight to -- to pick him for whatever reason. But -- would you or person of the year -- to be someone local. Excellent local one. Local person of the year. You know who -- person of the year would be. I know exactly who. I'm just I'm absolutely sure you know who. The person a year -- would being. I'm gonna go back to article here on the the lead article on my blog politics and -- dot net.
