I'm find do you think you absolutely have to have a photo ID to vote. No excuses. No excuses. Mean it picnic. I didn't get the ticket our. Being here. I mean it actually go in. Yet one. Voting is one of the most important. Judy that you as an American citizen. But a whole lot cute. Doctor but let's say you don't have one in all ought. I think I would be OK if we say. Starting in two years starting in three years and and figure out a way to these people to get their IDs. You might talk to me in that boat I guess I get concerned that there's at least right now if you show up and you don't have a photo ID and you were willing. To provide all birth and other information. Then you can sign an affidavit and if if you violate that evident in the worth it if you're being dishonest there then you could be prosecuted. I'd I'd just. I just want their at least some exception it just in case and some elderly person as a person just does not have one. I just don't feel comfortable having that tells the month look you may be on the polls. And we've we may know that you look for instance someone sent me a message and said while they put when you register to vote not reg the vote. When you sign yelled when he's register to vote. Put your picture on the card. But. My picture eighteen. Does not look like anything when I'm sixty. Maybe that person doesn't realize that. Yeah I had hair than. I am a footnote. Yeah Asia Asia hours on while mainly about this Obama. About half. The fact that it it able. Dog who got what he became president. And it's obvious that he had no experience doing it to a UV or VGA it you know it expert united do write in Europe and they. Ohio. And for him to say that the party should. As an editorial match. Take our top down payment that people are on the part of the United States. Poor ball in his position to run although one of India's. Very continued at the scene behind him. And an Obama should take into Oreo process and blue ball because and Opel. And in the United States. This. Is what. This system as much as he is. I am sorry the last four. Stand and let me ask you this question or are you getting concerned. The way that Donald Trump just continues to shoot his ball often and say things that really doesn't need the site RD is. But data that's part of his personality. All think that the big artists and honest answer that and he has. Cook and different. All words elections. But I didn't think there it is hard and in where he's going. Really try to. It's not all senses as the words she used. If that's possible to be accurate there you know I do think you need to tone it down a little. I kind of I kind of understand that I have a very good for a and who'd just has a potty melt I mean is is an intelligent personal professional person. Well a good friend of mine. Would you ask him for anything and he's always usually. Nicest people you'll meet. But he has a poly and well in itself it's so bad sometime that sometimes when when we've gone to dinner with the other random or is about to tell him. Watch him all the desert it would just can't its sales were so you know if you judgment simply by what he said. Andy you you might miss the real person sold. I. Well common ground now about like that it's more. You know about insisting it will be a market is that you have because. He's got a hand on the unity in order to be as successful Wharton. Don and he has. We hope things and and and have just been building and as you in the right in the war. The national. Where I personally I'm Obama order. A medical Dutch and look at them at all. All right Stanley let me go to my next caller appreciate it would go to Matt in Covington. Matt first of all should you need a photo ID to vote. What I have been born with your callers. Let me address two issues. And he. Sure I mean it I think. That question to be Cilic of course we I think the only photo like these I think that we even go a step look higher. There should be some on the bottom mr. chemical like I'm playing art work created. That we you know weighing in like me you know I want tiger to the same. The department effort but a you know you can you can tell you can tell whoever Tex that was a young person. You know the term hold actually. For people at the pace of the again. So it didn't become. Like you said I think you alluded to this. It borders secure program where that I'd have to pay it forward. We all Social Security are part my little child was born with a little secret she gets -- security guard. That's what security part. Should be the mechanism for everybody who wants to vote yeah street or did you picture on it. You get by actor you know that little. Current. And then I can be used in airports that could be used a police officer pulled you over. Eight database. 88 something that this country needs to get something that he's in I can use for all leopard being. And so that's where things. On the island would disagree with. That would require. Several years couple cycles it would record a federal government funds because you can't have poor people. Shelling when they don't I mean statistic and I am appalled that our that means that. I'm the second cup coffee get. Up. Barack Obama what you say. Is it was a professor for ten years with the United States senator. He's you know he's been elected two times. I mean grabbing one hurt them. That you have people saying. He's that guy he was opposite course at harbor really I mean other. Republicans to do. Well I hear people talk. You know they go live the book called the same people are calling your your show. It completely disqualified. Mr. Obama President Obama as a human being on the. I met do I I'm I'm having to go to break soon shall let me ask you this question. About Donald Trump penalties. He's talking now about the fact of the election a could be ready to move out or I'd be able to the vote in. Ten times. Do you think that he's starting to see that he's not going to be successful and he's preparing his followers for defeat. Which. Is when your enemy that sort. You know. Republican or Democrat strict on that one in to change. And and wrong and Republican leaders. Cute. Attacking them like it's the primary until you know. But to. Be listening to your signature of the Kasich. Rubio if you actually. About that it will be it was you know you need some it's raining if you do. You have the executive office in January. Thank you Matt appreciate your calling should you need a photo ID to vote. 260 late seventy or you can go to WW all the WWL dot com and cast your vote. 18 minutes after 9 o'clock I'm coming right back on WW. It's. It's a little bit scary people get it won't give they're gonna vote ten times or maybe who now is I just hope the Republicans are gonna be very watchful. And of course that is Donald Trump Donald Trump thing in that team is very concerned that the election might be rig. Now do you think he's really concerned or do you think maybe he's. Preparing his followers for to treat let me give a text message. On that also we're talking about President Obama. It is. Basically say in the Republican should under endorse struck the only regional mom is saying that is because he's worried about trump beating Hillary. Obama definitely not thinking about trump not being qualified. Back to the voter ID I have no problem with the questionable real ID. I don't want her to be a separate one. Here's another 111 vote very upscale area most of the poll workers or neighbors and friends of mine and they know me by name but they still require me. To show an ID let's go to him and were averaged Jim what do you think should you have to have a photo ID to vote. Alt pop absolutely I mean the people that don't have a full for ID to vote.

If there was some monetary reward to go get that they would find no way they get day guarantee it that you agree or disagree. Well it it sounds good but I guess I'll always wonder about a person may be used. An invalid or someplace that you can and can't and can't get out. Yeah. Well in bullet can get out. Because they must be able to spot but he's doctors don't boorda anymore right. Right soluble troops you believe. If you're gonna do that should you give people some type of warning. What an inordinate and if they don't they're supposed to know when Hussein exactly got a it's called you know that'll. No and here's what I'm Julian. If you're gonna make it that you must show a photo logic let's let's just say you let this be hypothetical there. We make a federal law today you and you'd have to blend of state of the government. But you have to have a photo ID to vote. I would say all right starting in and you know oh.

With different reasons that they didn't love you know it is now two years is or what happened a hundred days. What in the 700 days ago gave him I'd be.

You can sign an affidavit if you provide you at birth certificate or something like that and you can blow you you know you want to eliminate that. Absolutely there's no reason not to have something which a picture no reason it doesn't have to be a drop elections. Before being an apple argued immediately available at the drop it like the Euro. Boy ABC title and got our problems like this. Last week ABC tablet that claim that the DMV writer and I had a five minute wait. The simple. All right and thank you so much but up.

Bob the elections in November this is August people of time to get the picture ID no excuses we need an honest election. Look silly. It's well within current technology providing fingerprint option. To vote. Probably a lot more difficult. To get an idea. A picture quality. All right let's see 50426 year old an 87 let me update you on our on the ready opinion poll question this is basically one way. 90% believe you should need a photo ID to vote worldly 10% say no let's go to to visit them.

I agree that you should have a photo ID but I just want some. I pod system in the process worked someone who just some elderly person who just doesn't have that that they get deprived of their right about now. I think it's something we can start doing you know maybe maybe we can say I don't know if you are under seventy years old you have to have a lot of thought reloaded and and I think eventually we'll work but. I just don't want anyone lose their right to vote. Like most people. And install. You would look out my. Old age. Or you. Mean.

All right thank you Jeff appreciate it OK I am Bob Mitchell filling in for Tommy Tucker don't blame anything assailants on all right let's say. Let's go to Andy and empower you. I'm on line Serb by. I wanted to make. Make the comment on total like these because. And and also one registration in general I lifted Eichmann marriage activists out it is about seven years I've been in jumpers and Paris. And rumbled back to Jefferson Parish in the late seventies. Well I was you know rebel laid back. Younger I didn't care voted upon so I waited but three years. Presidential election some of decided to go re register. I upon not a boat didn't Eichmann Paris in our time I was gone now we shall. Would you vote for closed the. Got a neighbor well that's the point let me quote. I hadn't been there in three years on the polls support. As far as like these don't even the elderly because if they go Medicare Medicaid they normally have no idea anyway article in the hospital. So people are being. Probably a total ideas I have an elder polices itself but about sale Williams sixty but I don't want a model they're achieves sub. Listen when you when you become sixty. Elderly is eighty okay. Well I used to be that disparity that was open was ordered that. One I've made 68. And I got really great then I'm officially old mount. I but anyway one must just because she passed show. People like you part when she goes to the doctor which goes to the hospital etc. And I'd like the other gentleman was saying they can pull an information. On the state of the Indians who were matchup because. It's good this show photo ID when you go to the register when you go to vote. But the problem physically able over the maps it gets and I would bet they started really looking hard. They would aren't a lot of fraud going on with voting and certainly back in the saudis. And that they as a Perasa of that language Allen Brazil and at that time there was a huge amount of voter fraud department Paris are huge amount. And let me ask Q another question we're talking about this afternoon. President Obama is. Really dogging O'Donnell from the fact the is imploring Republicans to un endorsed him now do you think. He really believes that or do you think he's trying to get trump out of the race because he'd appears to eat but for the Democrats in the. Hi I think he's scared about the call. Hope we can't get what I go to vote it's going to be for the lesser of the two. I mean for the better of the two because I don't. Particularly care part wanna open. Hobbled the trouble because I am a Republican and I have very conservative values. Policy Hillary and offices you know. The secretary of state I was not impressed. Her universal healthcare now and implement its wants to take credit for that you know the fact that Obama implemented a health care plan. But at the time she was running for president that was not poke your plans he wanted actually opposes the one that Obama actually did. Now I AM retired now. Prior to retiring I again I saw might help steer cautious. Chew through this deal going out that we got this and deductibles. Why it was a retired schoolteacher. Marilyn Metzger and the part deductible. I think last year was going to be 9000. Dollars. And it was a huge push back where all the teachers in the retired teacher which slightly more. And they brought in doubt deductible back down for reasonable amount but all it's on his pride healthcare cost thought. Dutch giant I gotta go I wish I appreciate your call in okay. Operationally and told Bob and James and what do you guys hang on I'll come right back our question is should you'd need a photo ID. The vote. And do you think President Obama as they had all these bad things about trump and as the Republicans on the doors because. The fears the lead in November for the Democratic Party to select 0187. Welcome back nine a 47 coupled with such a few messages and then I'll go to the phones. If you have the energy to vote you have been untreated go out and get an ID.

You know if it. What was it yesterday the day before trump talked about that the election is gonna be rigged. Well some people believe he's doing net to placate its supporters. It easily think they're not looking good for done that who knows. You attempted to make it easy for all but candidate really didn't lose you lately so he just lost because that's the grass in the liberals and all you know the median what that's setting up in in the pocono pony election now. I'm looking at an article bought from the Washington Post. August 6. 2014. A professor. Jane Justin Levitt at the Loyola law school in Los Angeles.

Doubt. At all. And it'll buy and it can weed him out. Of the all ought. Well. But go ahead. We. Eat at. You. It. All. So you'd think you'd think Donald Trump was in the drop out of the presidential race. I don't see that happening. Not a does he may may get his butt beat but I don't see him drop in out. A quick and people. Why don't people. Number one hole on number one I did not say he's going to get his butt beat us that if he gets as bug me that the reason. That diapers out of that question was the fact that it's very very unusual. For a the president of one party. Two advised the candidate from the other party who's running for president. To and so on endorse him that's like saying but you need to replace it at that dreary and usual. Because the boat at that the president is getting. Aren't that out I'll do it all okay. Oh sorry and you pack of it we got back. Well what does that have to do with him wanting dropout of the race. Because it. Yeah. And then today that these vanities that bad letting him run and depleted team why would you want him out. Not sorry about that to break. Being. Bought. It but. To beat people you are. Oh but wait.
