7:33 am
hi jim. back together on another wednesday morning let's talk about chris christy are we surprised he said over and over i am not going to run for president now he is not going to run >> i don't think so. a couple things, in this dynamic, number one the primaries are being moved up and moved up to the fact we will see an iowa caucus some time in november. it is hard at that point with a very condensed calendar to announce, put together an organization, raise money, you see the perry campaign, having a difficult time because there was so much enthusiasm and it is really tough it takes a little while -- peter has been involved in presidential campaigns it takes while to raise the money to do the things you need to do to really run an effective campaign i think he is flattered, and you know it is always great there is always a rule of thumb if you are a politician even if you are not going to run, if they are talking about you,
7:34 am
that is a good thing. right exactly. but you know, i am beginning to call the republican party the baskin robins party it is the flavour of the month. michelle bachmann was rolling in the aisle and sinks like a rock and perry had his share of trouble. the one thing i think we are seeing here, with all this will you run won't you run. he got a lot of pressure was that they clearly are not satisfied with mitt romney the latest numbers, gallup came out with an intensity number herman cain has the highst number for intensity he is now second. >> let's talk about herman cain. >> we were making fun of this, on a previous show about 999. 9 pizzas, in 9 minutes for 9 bucks, which is not -- >> so good of you.
7:35 am
>> no, i mean my point, this is easy to understand it is simple people are gravitating towards it, making fun of it not so smart and cain has helped himself and clearly the ability, who would have thought he would win florida in the straw poll. >> what do you think about cain? >> i saw him speak in new hampshire in april, early may, the guy is a radio talk show host in atlanta he understands what motivates audiences he gave a very good speech the problem with cain now just like everybody else is now the scrutiny comes who are you, what did you do, what kind of business did you run, you know he ran national restaurant association did he do a good job there. there will be a lot of things and more scrutiny on him just like everybody else now the pressure. the other thing is, with a
7:36 am
condensed calendar, with a compressed calendar, you will have to play in a lot of places at one time that is michelle bachmann's problem they are putting all their money and efforts, in iowa, hoping it creates momentum with condensed calendar, you have one state one day, another state another day, you need money if he doesn't have money -- >> florida moved up into january it is a very expensive state to run in. >> which was -- >> i didn't know you could write. >> i am a ghost writer. >> there was a report where i said look, don't thing romney has this thing all locked up there are certainly evidence that suggest he might but here is a guy, taking more position than issues, he is a weather

vane in a are you cane. oh, -- hurricane. oh, i signed a tax pledge before you signed the tax men you increased fees in massachusetts, -- pledge you increased fees in massachusetts, 55 times. let me ask you this, looks like mitt romney is still a front runner is he still -- >> remember you are looking at national polls they really don't mean anything these are state by state caucuses you have to look at each individual state whether it is iowa, new hampshire, nevada. >> it is not winner take all. >> that's right. head winner take all. what you can say about romney is that he has a base and he has a -- seems like he has a ceiling he has 20 to 25% doesn't seem to get much more than 25, once in awhile he gets a 30 but he is down around 20
7:38 am
the question becomes, who are they going to go to. setting that up to say, in the short time we have left can mitt romney beat president barack obama when does the conversation change to that it is fine to talk about this but when does it change to electability. >> it is like mark twain said about the weather in the midwest, if you don't like it, wait a minute, 13, 14 months is a long time for this election this is a president who has shown he can come from behind and did it. so i think can anything happen, yeah obviously as we talked about for a long time economy is key here. >> we will have to hold on talking about the jobs bill and how far that will go until next week when you come back. actually -- >> jim it is all you. we will see how far it will go next week steve over to you. >> thank you very much 7:39 a.m. disney digging back into the

>> it is a very good bet anyone who saw it never forgot the sight of two american athletes at the 1968 games, tommy smith and john carlos on the podium for the medal ceremony when both raised their fists into the air. an international fire storm was started and in some ways still hasn't died down. john carlos wrote a book about
8:27 am
his journey from harlem to the deep south and olympics and we are more than honored you are joining us in studio. >> the honor and pleasure is mine. >> how are you doing. >> fine yourself. >> good. you have a couple appearances in washington. why write the book now. >> i am getting up in age my grand kids are of high school age ready to graduate, i felt there has been so many stories written, so many books written about john carlos involved in various books, many of the books had been written now the people called me, interviewed me, sat down with me, but they felt they knew enough about me to write a book. in my situation, 99% of it is hearsay i felt it was imperative i put my own very words down as to who i am, why
8:28 am
i am and where i i tend ongoing in life. >> it starts with your up bringing in harlem, documents that through what you are going through now, and it is emotional when you were writing it, did you start the thing about some of those old feelings and you know was it hard to write the book? >> no, it wasn't hard at all as a matter of fact the emotions that you mention, they ran through my body from the day i came to this world to the day i am sitting in this chair with you. it was very easy for me to sit back and thing about the fact that i was born and raised in harlem, to remember the fact that i lived between the cotton club and savoy barroom open my windows and hear the great entertainers, cheryl vaughn, ella fitzgerald, billy holiday, cadillac cemented my soul so to speak to go in front of the
8:29 am
savoy barroom and notice white folks could go in the front and black folks had to go in the side or back as entertainers, as a youngster my father was a schumacher in the community, had an opportunity to meet the great jackie robinson, willie may, these individuals came into my fathers store my father introduced my brothers and i to jackie robinson and you know you never really know who you are meeting as a child and i remember going to the ymca showing the jackie robinson story, if you remember he played his own role in this movie and i recall seeing him, and realizing for the first time, that this was not just an ordinary guy this was a great individual and a baseball player and to realize he was top of the heap in his profession and just the mere fact he was a black man he still had to be tore meanted and persecuted because of the color of his skin. >> in the beginning your dad tells you olympics is a place
8:30 am
to put political differences aside and all the other things going on between the nations and stand there and compete as athletes yet when you made your appearance, you basically changed the face of the olympics just for that moment that moment lives on so strongly, even today i want to know just because we are running so short of time leading up to that you were planning to do something at the olympics a boycott of some sort. >> that was the plan to have a collective boycott for blacks and those sympathetic to the black cause, many individuals felt they trained all their lives to go to olympic games to compete and attempt to win a medal we felt also it was imperative we made them understand why we thought it was necessary to do a boycott but also we made them understand, it is their choice we would take a vote at the end they voted to go they made the promise to their church, community, their kids they would win, to attempt to win a medal. >> you talk about that moment
8:31 am
not being premeditated, it sure does look planned when you look at that photo. >> it was planned by god you know god reached down and picked up three grains of sand, peter norman, johnny smith and john carlos we didn't have to do what we did, god put us in a position and made us realize where else can we make this statement where we reach the far ends of this society where we live other than the olympic games i could stand in front of the empire state building but wouldn't reach the number of people that need to see and hear. >> you talk about the fall out -- we are out of time i really wish i could find 10 more minutes to talk to you if you could just sort of tell me in a nutshell afterwards the fall out from that, and if there are any regrets from that moment. >> let's start at the end no regrets whatsoever for what i did in the past if it was necessary for me to stand for rightouseness again i will stand for it right now today. relative to you know fall out,
8:32 am
it was like sunshine impede crately turned to stormy wealth -- immediately turned to stormy weather that is what it was. >> read the book for more this is the john carlos story a pleasure talking to you. >> oh, it's mine. >> today we have two events to pass along tonight 6:00 p.m., evening with john carlos, nation sports, and dave who wrote the book with you, that is tonight 6:00 p.m., smithsonian national port trait gallery and then anne arundel community college. >> just ran out of time completely. >> that's all right alison. 8:32 a.m., speaking of time just 80 days away from christmas your kids might be starting to thing about their -- thing about their holiday wish list for this year, but toy makers tinkers for toys for next year. an exclusive peek at what
