tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News January 15, 2016 1:00pm-2:01pm PST
raise your expectations. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, control is possible. so what are you guys doing? we have been just waiting. welcome everybody, i'm neil cavuto and this is "your world" from charleston, south carolina. just from outside the arena to give you a post-debate take on everything that has been going on because less than 24 hours after we were talking about everything and these candidates were talking about a different view of the economy and market than the president outlined, guess what happened today? this is what happened today, a huge selloff, and believe me, that is off the session highs. for a while we were down 540 points. suffice to say with the dropoff today, 2.4% in case your counting, that represents about
11%. if that sounds familiar to a lot of you, might have heard the candidates, well, it should, because they were saying, and bringing up the possibility that ççç pree worse things to come. it is interesting to note that for the two weeks we have had of trading in the new year, go back in history, you'll find no motherrer or tumultuous start here in american markets ever. that's right, ever. the dow from it how, down 11%, into correction mode. the nasdaq from its high, that represents a correction. where the s&p 500 down 12%. i always focused on the markets to let you know that we're not that far from bear market territory. if you were to start cutting apart the market averages you would realize over half the stocks are well into bear market territory which means dropping 20% or more from their highs. what was doing this? cheap oil. you love the cheap gas prices.
unfortunately the markets see. the as a reflex of the whole economy globally is slowing down. a barrel of oil today is $29.42. gerri willis picking apart the cross-currents. what you got? >> you're right. oil is pushing the markets down, and as you3sç said, we have haa bit of an improvement from the point we were at 537 down on the dow. all the dow stocks now down but closing around 391 points down right now. other issues driving this market, we had some bad economic news. retail sales coming down a tenth of a percent for the month. that's not good news. we also had a manufacturing index, the empire state manufacturing index, its lowest level today since 2009. people are paying attention to this because what they're worried about, the backdrop of the conversation here, deflation, recession, what is going on? people are worried about the
lack of demand for oil out there, the thing that is driving it below $30 a barrel. also you said the dow is down 13%. below record highs. s&p down 12% from record highs. nasdaq down 14% from its record highs, and trading below its 2015 closing low today. it has been a bad day in the markets andoo let me tell now jt how up forgiving the market was. five bank stocks put out numbers, earnings, eps today, including citigroup and wells fargo. the numbers were generally pretty good. no disappointments. on target or above target. and still the stocks were hammered. 5% most of the stocks were down. so even if you're in a category most people like you can get sold off on a day like today. one more thing to mention. people are getting ready for a three-day weekend, traders don't like holding stocks and don't know what china will report.
we have seen some brutal mondays when china has a bad day before. so/dk people wanted to get out f the stocks. they did that with a vengeance today and now we're holding our breath nor next week. >> going to be kind of weird because of the martin luther king holiday and all that can get really whacky. gerri willis, thank you very much. the read from larry. china was a big factor in this, and china was a big factor in the debate last night when donald trump was talking about the back and forth, whether we get tit-for-tat with the chinese and start throwing tariffs on their goods. i want to touch on whether that would be too much too fast. >> as far as the market what he was been in a bear market for a while. the major indissees are catching up -- indexes were catching up. we have talked about it many times the transports at three-year lows even though oil
prices crashed that should tell you what the market things of the economy. i'm sure we'll see some recessionary numbers unfortunately. >> larry, want to get your take on an exchange that donald trump and i had do -- in the debate. socks the chinese with tariffs or not. this is from last night. >> last week in the "new york times" editorial board quoted you saying you would impose up to 45% trophy on chinese goods. >> they were wrong. it's "the new york times." they're always wrong. they were wrong. >> you never said it because they provided an -- >> i love the chinese people but they laugh themselves. they can't believe how stupid the american leadership is. >> you're open to a tariff. >> totally open to a tariff. if they don't treat us fairly -- their whole trade thing is
tariff. you can't deal in china without a tariff. they do it to us. it's not fair trade. >> who is that good-looking moderateor. >> you've mean the anchor and the guys in the suit? go ahead. >> on the one hand you have most of the voters, taxpayers, most investors recognize we don't want to be protectionist because we know the challenges that come either and that's the chord that donald strikes to. we feel like we're suckers and we want to push back against unfair trade. if the economy worked so well why would the chinese be jumping hand over fist to get their money in this country to hide the process they're devastating our economy and devastating the middle class worker. >> if donald -- i think there was a method to what he was saying. the said the 45% fy4ñ0f(pñ me. he did argue that would be the
chinese to talk. now he lowered that figure, didn't give me a specific number but we should realize when you slap a tariff on goods, the china aren't paying for it, we are. there was something brilliant in his thinking, and, gary, if you could flesh this out. he might have no intention of ever slapping such a tariff on such goods, but he would scare the chinese to the negotiating table. what do you make of that? >> you are correct, neil. donald trump's overall message is a message of strength. the fact that we haveñauiy+ been the economy and worldwide economy, whether it comes to foreign policy and he says enough is enough. i don't think he can slap 40% tariffs on anything. that will cause price wars and will be handed down the consumer and nothing good comes out of it. to a country that has to get their house in order or else. i like it and i think it's tough talk but it's necessary talk.
>> that's right. that's right. >> i want to thank you both. a lot -- i wish we had more time, we development. i want to thank you both. i want to get into the debate. stirred up a little bit of controversy. i want to give you a random set of reactions to the debate. one is, cavuto, you talk too much. let the guests answer your question. another comment: cavuto, why don't you interrupt your guests so they can address the issue withoutlúis'g off in tangents. another: maria bart romo is more attractive thanout. why are you there? another, cavuto what is the point of asking ges to come for a debate if you want to juster hear yourself. al writes: neil, you seem to think that just showing up for a debate is all that matters. why don't you have something to say? i heard barely a word out of you. wait a minute, you couldn't have before watching the same debate. all the nasty questions had cnn
dot -- wait a minute. jeff block is now gauging market reaction. not to the debate but the tumbling oil prices. joe? >> they liked you better than they liked oil prices today. it's a free country. what can i tell you. you reported at the outset it ways an ugly day for oil prices, at least if you're an oil price bear. 49.4 2. maybe you don't know the price of oil in 2008, the price of oil was $145 ayjk÷ barrel. just for reference. as you said also at the outset, great news if you're filling up your car, gas prices have not decade. it saved consumers last year -- because we have had almost a year of low prices now, thanks to low oil -- $115 billion.
it was 2 about 08 this time last year. lowest in the country, oklahoma, mississippi, and you saved money this week)v because you're in south carolina where the average is 1.69. only problem, every penny you saved at the pump you probably >> well, aren't you the bearer of great news. jeff flock, thank you, my friend in chicago. >> sorry. >> so, again, we could have a very volatile market next year but if this doesn't show you've that these stocks and oil are moving in tandem, nothing will but again, 390-point falloff today, 2.4 percent. you might have heard in debate last night that ted cruz was nature lot of pressure to prove, a., he was natural born citizen and donald trump questioning that, but there was a certain shoutout that the texas senator gave to a guy named art laffer, a reagan apostle, many say he
marco rubio. he ran for senate saying he opposed amnesty... then he flipped, and worked with liberal chuck schumer to co-author the path to citizenship bill. he threatened to vote against it. and then voted for it. he supported his
own dream act and then he abandoned it. marco rubio. just another washington politician you can't trust.
jeb bush. he's a leader, so you always know where he stands. right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message. >> i would note
that art laffer, reagan's chief economic adviser has written possibly my simple flat tax is the best tax plan of any of the individuals on this stage because it produces economic growth, raises wages and helps everyone from the very poorest to the very richest. >> and we verified that. art laffer says that is true him likes the texas senator's plan the best. and he joins us now. a big reason i would we had the tax cuts and the booming market that followed. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> why his plan. >> some of them are similar. every candidate has a good plan.
i love donald trump's, rand paul's was great. ben carson has a terrific plan as well. so -- >> and rubio still has high -- >> he has high -- too many child tax credits and -- >> you don't like it when it gets all weird. >> not rewarding people for working. tax codes should raise money. if you want to help children, give them a check and be transparent. don't try to hide it in the tack codes and not do -- >> he would keep the irs going and all but the argument is that whatever you use, you're going to need some -- >> someone has to cash the checks. but you can really reduce it dramatically. you can eliminate almost all of the audits except for real cheats. so if you have a flat low-rate broad bassed flat tax, there's no ensign testify to fin nagle where you pay your tacks, what kind of income, capital gains and all that. so it's neat the way ted cruz has done it.
>> we chat about this. the. way we can get big tax reform, obviously, is with a republican coming in, a republican congress. i'm not casting political aspersions but the two-> you're right. >> -- 97 to 3 be patted in the senate. every democrat voted for it except for simon and -- al gore told me, the best bill he voted for, led to 25 years worth of prosperity and he is right. >> in other words, would that happen if hillary clinton were elected and we had a republican congress? , i don't think hillary -- you wouldn't have got anyone of the democrats. mondale wasn't have done it. with reagan, working with him and making it clear, they saw it
was a great tax plan. >> we have heard tax reform, lower rates under ronald reagan but it's been a generation. >> since 1913 when the tax coded were put into effect. and at that time, seven percent rate was the highest rate. by 1919 it was 70%. >> so you like cruz's plan. >> the other candidates plans are good, too. i don't want to disdid the others. what you'll see happening is this egg going through a long process. a secretary of treatersry, 7 days ago, phil wasn't thinking about dancing.
he was thinking about his joints. but now he's taking osteo bi-flex, and noticing a real difference in his joint comfort. the feeling originates in this area... spreads throughout the body... to here, inducing hilariously high levels of embarrassment in his son. he knows it's working by that look of abject humiliation on his son's face. you were made to dance, phil. so dance. shows improved joint comfort in just 7 days. osteo bi-flex. made to move. the 88th southern parallel. we had traveled for over 850 miles. my men driven nearly mad from starvation and frostbite. today we make history. >>bienvenidos! welcome to the south pole! if you're dora the explorer, you explore.
i said before that anyone can look at a debate through their own bias but when i hear a story and a series of lies that is repeated and repeated and tweeted and then re-tweeted, it begins to getyçç my attention, especially something that hit the liberal blogosphere that i apparently in a question implied that probe barack obama was to blame for the financial crisis that actually happened before he became even president. i wondered what triggered that. and they point to this question that i asked.
i want you to hear anything that implies that i blame the financial crisis that barack obama inherited on barack obama. listen to this. >> senator kashich, we are not even two weeks into this stock trading year, investors have already lost $1.6 trillion in market value. that makes instant the worst start to a new year ever. many worry that things will get even worse ask that banks, the financial stocks, are particularly vulnerable. if this escalates like iodine the same thing happens all over again just as in this example, you are taking over the presidency. >> did i blame the president for that crisis? no. what i was saying was that with huge market selloff, much as we were looking at the middle of a
meltdown, in the last year of the bush administration. that senator barack obama, once elected president, would be inheriting, taking over, when he was inaugurated president. my point was then and to stress now that he would be taking over as president in the middle of what would be a market meltdown, not of his doing. i wasn't blaming it on him. so, for people to reconstruct like "the new york times," media management, left-wing sites, i manufactured a crisis and limped it on the president, the same president, i had reminded my republican guests, had seen the unemployment rate cut in half under his stewardship and millions of jobs created. i wasn't framing any economic argument to benefit either republicans or democrats. i was simply saying to the people on the stage that in this case, particularly john kashich, what would you do if what we're looking at now ills the beginning of -- is the beginning of a financial crisis that onç january 20, 2017, you would be inheriting much as barack obama
was inheriting back then. now, if anyone can divine political motives to that question, you're an ass. all right. but i digress. now i want to move on to other things here, including lieutenant general michael flynn on the growing issue of terrorism. and not calling radical islam for what it is. gentlemen, sorry if i seem short-tempered. two reasons not that. a horrible hotel. it was like i somewhats stationed at gitmo, but you know me, general, i'm not a whiner. the other issue -- >> close associates would have a difference of opinion on that. >> i hear you. i think you're right. general, let me ask you about the fact that participants were saying, rad clallum, radical islam, we have no problem saying it. what do you think? >> so, the next president of the united states, and first of all, great debate last night.
i watched the whole thing and was struck by the -- >> thank you very much -- >> the quality of the questions the next president of the united states of america has to project a moralm) resolve that is matchd by the physical power of the united states, and that physical power is economic, it is diplomatic, it is political, it is informational, and it is military. and i think that when we -- so, at the strategic level, i think at the tacticalhjj/&ñ level ands definition of the enemy you cannot defeat an enemy you do not define,i've spent 33 years e as an intelligence officer. defining the enemies for my commanders and leadership, and if i ever went in with this, as waffling an answer as i've heard on trying to define the enemy momming out of the current administration, i should have been fired. so, we can -- >> general, one thing i wanted to get clarified, though. one thing that camet÷%l4+u up w,
regardless of what you call it, radical islam or what -- radical islam. >> how do you liken the isis battle today. he president says it's not like taking on germany or japan. it's more like a rag-tag group of guys meeting in their garage, whatever he said. how do you define and it how we should go about fighting it. >> that's completely incorrect on your latter sort of how you explained that. i know you're using what others are saying. this is not a rag-tag group of people in -- log bathrobes, a very doning, agile, smart, enemy and it's just like the otherrisms we failed in the 20th center. fascism, imperialism, communism, naziism. had we lost to adolph hitler during world war ii we would be praying at the alter of naziism. thissism ills radical lahm jim -- radical islamism, and
it's cancer and it's wrong to call it anything other than that.bz% other than -- definitely wrong to call it criminals or other names. call it what it is, very beneficiaries, barbaric firm of radical islam and we're going to be at this for a long time. whoever the next president is, as i said earlier, they're going to be dealing with this the entire time -- we have seen all these attacks, most recent attacks, like the one in jakarta, an interesting one and the choice of targets, in a starbucks. you don't see all the other attacks -- i traffic this stuff. many attacks going on. this is a global fight that they have chosen and they are fighting us. they're fighting the west, principally the united states of america. so we have to stop kidding ourselves and i'm glad to hear in the debate, i think a very -- a much more frankly intellectual dialogue and some better discussion about what it is
we're facing and recognizing it for what it is. it's a long-term problem and we have to have the moral authority and we have to be able to project the power this country can across the board. just not doing that right now. >> understood, general. thank you very much for taking the time. one other quote i want to read you, folks. this rescue of the banks is perhaps the biggest and riskiest sham i have ever covered for. for the president to be considering this now is emboldening others to have their hands out andtip cups out. this rescue -- and tin cups out this rates and bailing out the banks is a huge mistake and the president will regret it. that was me, talking about president bush(p$"?@ and the bankruptcies and the rescue of the banks. not president obama. so, you left-wing sites, get your act together. we'll have more after this across america, people like basketball hall of famer
dominique wilkins... ...are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes... ...with non-insulin victoza®. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar. but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza®. he said victoza® works differently than pills. and comes in a pen. victoza® is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight.
victoza® is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes... ...and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer... ...multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to... ...victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction... ...may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing. tell your doctor... ...if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®... ...including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). stop taking victoza®... ...and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen

in asia on monday and likely see potentially another big selloff in china, which affects. asia which affects europe and would affect it bus we won't be able to tried on it. the only good news is can tell you it was worse. down 540 points. that's how bad things are, we are grateful it was only a 39-point hit in the market. the question i posited at the debate, what if we're looking at the start of the meltdown or something that can drag through the year and the new president has to deal with that just as he or she is coming into office, which was my only point, with that question, and a point i want to raise with a guy who could be in that position, rick santorum, the g.o.p. presidential candidate. senator, that was my issue. what do you do if we are in a meltdown and you are assuming the presidency on january 20, 2017, and people are saying, all right, you got to do something to stabilize or support these markets. what does a president saner to
rump do? >> -- saner to rump do -- president santorum do. >> i'm concerned about a meltdown around the world right now in addition to -- time talking about national security in addition to a meltup domestically and probably somewhat tied to each other. you have to get the economy growing, and i've talked about this from day one. we put together a plan, a regulatory plan to eliminate excessive regular layings, reduction in tacks. art laffer mentioned plans he has reviewed. he called mine an exceptional one. so -- which with his -- a true ,( a forbes flat tax -- >> he liked senator crews' better -- cruz's better. >> if you look a vat tax, that's fine. i don't like a value added tax and that what ted cruz's tax is. that would be a mistake to give the federal government a hidden tax.
it's a hidden tax, enormous tax. >> i don't want to get veered into that kind -- if you don't mind, senator, but i want to say what a president coming in the middle of the financial crisis as barack obama was, you have to ask yourself how do you restore confidence, tell people it's going to be all right, now, he was following up on efforts of the bush administration -- >> look -- >> what would you do? >> his response was to pass a stimulus package, which is a huge mistake and his response was to continue to bail out -- continue the auto bailouts, another mistake. from the very beginning i was against the bailouts, den. >> you felt that why win president bush was for those bailouts. >> yes. >> pressure brush was -- okay. that's fine. >> bank bailouts, auto bailouts, i was opposed to all bailouts and was vocal saying so. i'm going to focus on how we can get this economy going by unshackling the economy from the
regulatory burden it's on right now, unshackling the economy from the tax burden it's under right now, and i agree with donald trump. i think we have to look at our trade policies and i'm someone who voted for free trade greats but also voted against free trade agreements. i voted against nafta because i didn't think it was good program. we need look at all of those in order to get the economy up and going again. >> senator, always a pleasure. you dade great job last night. thank you again. >> thank you, appreciate it, neil. >> rick santorum. donald trump had a moment as well in his debate but it wasn't for what you think. not for any fury or bombastic performance but a very poignant momentum, when you hear donald trump and poignant, the two words don't go together. you might think differently right after this. you do all this research on the perfect car.
gas mileage, horse power, torque ratios... three spreadsheets later, you finally bring home the one... then smash it into a tree. your insurance company is all too happy to raise your rates... maybe you should've done a little more research on them. for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates due to your first accident. see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance. now? can i at least put my shoes on? if your bladder is calling the shots... ...you may have a medical condition called overactive bladder or oab.

(secretly) so clean...you could wear them a second day. tell me i did not just hear that! (sheepishly) i said you could... not that you would! ...charmin ultra strong with its washcloth-like texture, helps clean better than the leading flat-textured bargain brand. it's 4 times stronger, and you can use up to 4 times less it cleans better. (to different boy) you should try it, "skidz." we all go. why not enjoy the go with charmin? everyone understands that the values in new york city are socially liberal, pro abortion
or pro gay marriage, focus around money and the media. >> when the world trade center came down, i saw something that no place on earth could have handled more beautifully, more humanly than new york. everybody in the world loves new york and loved new yorkers and i have to tell you, that was a very insulting statement that ted made. >> even people who aren't big fans of donald;:ñç3 trump are sd in their tracks, stunned. friends who don't necessarily find donald trump their cup of tee, but especially in the new yorkers among them, they were turned and staggeredded by the roarks and some said, who would have known. pat buchanan, your thoughts on that. >> well, i think you're right. i think what ted cruz was trying to do is what jean kirkpatrick did at the 1984 convention of the republicans where she referred to san francisco democrats a number of times and people laughed and cheered, but you're right, neil.
when folks think of new york now, and what is the image, and a lot of us think of the illinois as farm and running -- image as farm and running into a burning building and climbing upstairs to rescue people when there's a good probability the buildings will collapse on top of them, which is what happened. so, i think that it was a tin are ear -- tin-eared comment by senator cruz and will pay a place for it and was donald trump's best moment in the debate and one reason that a number of people say it was his best debate and he won it. >> well, i've heard the same thing but a lot of people say, well north fast on ted crazy, that he might be clever like a fox. this was his exact intention and to remind people in southern states that has little regard for new yorkers. i'm not saying they're heartless when it comes to 9/11 but they do by and large accept the line that the senator raised about the liberal media, clueless elite class and that's what he
hopes to pounce on in places like iowa and later in the southern states like here in south carolina. what do you think? >> i don't think it's working because donald trump is very, very strong in south carolina, secondarily, trump's support is really much more working class and middle class than it is wealthy elite new york types when you think of wall street and the beautiful people and the lack like the beautiful people. i think donald trump is clearly improving as a debater, and i would raise another issue. he really showed passion and fire also on the issue of economic patriotism and economic export of american jobs, and it's clear from the comments of governor kashich and others, who are partly agreeing with him, he is driving the party in that direction as well.
>> he certainly driving the agenda, and i think that the difference to your great point, pat, with the 9/11 remark he showed a measured kind of a response that we normally don't attach to him and has been prescient on these developments. others say he lucked out but he is driving this agent, and a lot of people think after last night, maybe on the way to the nomination. what do you think? >> i believe that february will decide it. look, i think in order for anybody to stop trump right now from getting the nomination, cruz will have to beat him in iowa. he will have to underperform in new hampshire, and then the south carolina crowd down there, which wants to stop him there, i think the governor down there, and senator lindsey graham, and trey gowdy and all the rest of them have to trip him up down there otherwise february will be decisive. i think if donald trump wins iowa or wins new hampshire
dramatically, i think he wins the nomination, and i the market -- if that's a lead indicator, this country ills headed for the kind of trouble that it certainly had in 2008 which cost the republicans the election. >> you could be right. pat buchanan, thank you. i have a feeling -- the family leader ceo who made it possible for ted cruz to be in the position he is in iowa might disagree. he is coming up next. hey sweetie, it's time. ♪ eye of the tiger tv anncr: good afternoon everyone. morning rituals are special. when you share what you love... ...with who you love. kellogg's frosted flakes. they're grrreat!
morning ted! scott! ready to hit some balls? ooh! hey buddy, what's up? this is what it can be like to have shingles. oh, man. a painful, blistering rash. if you had chickenpox, the shingles virus is already inside you. 1 in 3 people will get shingles in their lifetime. after almost 3 weeks, i just really wanted to give it a shot. you know, i'm not feeling it today. talk to your doctor or pharmacist today about a vaccine that can help prevent shingles.
candidates, most people seem to think that donald trump and ted cruz maintain their top positions. others might have made some progress. bob is the family leader ceo, very instrumental in putting a certain ted cruz on top of that group of candidates in iowa. now what does this mean going forward? bob, always good to have you. what do you think now? there's a lot of pressure on your candidate, maybe as a result of this questioning back and forth, and whether senator cruz is a native-born american citizen. other senators said, it's worth looking at. is it going to hurt your candidate? >> i don't think so. i think ted cruz had a great debate last night and answer answered all the questions. i think he dominated the debate that. i tecked ted cruz last night. first of all you did a great job. i said to ted you just made our
job easier in iowa. this will be a tight race going down. we have 17 days and a few hours left before the iowa caucus vote but the debate performance ted cruz showed last night, i think reminded everybody he is ready to be commander-in-chief. >> do you think he might have botched it on the 9/11 thing or by design did that help him in states like iowa, southern states, 9/11 notwithstanding, folks not keen on numberers. >> i thought -- on new yorkers. >> i thought donald trump did a great job and reminded everybody why we love new york and the american spirit they showed on 9/11. ted cruz was referring to new york city politics. the 212 area code, saying get out of the area code and get to some common sense conservative values itch think that will help him in iowa. we get talked about having iowa values. which is pro family, pro faith, pro education, do unto others.
that's a real compliment to us. so ted cruz, i don't think he made my disparaging comments to those victims of 9/11 or what new yorkers went through. i think just saying the politics are different in new york than in other parts of the country. >> let me ask you, bob. a lot has5y]ç been said of other republican winners of your state who you helped propel to victory in your state. certainly mike huckabee comes to mind in 2008 and rick santorum but they don't have an operation in place to capitalize in other states. does ted cruz? >> i believe it's different in 2016. i think huckabee is better than mccain and -- but ted cruzaxstas a heck of an infrastructure just not a in iowa but across iowa borders into new hampshire and south carolina, never do the sec primaries. i think if ted cruz can win iowa and i hope and pray he does, but
if he wins, you're looking at him being the nominee. i think iowa is that important, neil. >> easily the single greatest debade i have seen and that male host, what a hunk of burning love. signed mary cavuto. get out of here. more. what hand in this billing and its preliminary i can indications after this. in an equity summary score that consolidates the stock ratings of top analysts into a single score... and $7.95 online u.s. equity trades, lower than td ameritrade, schwab, and e-trade, you realize the smartest investing idea isn't just what you invest in,
