Update in case anyone has this same problem.  I think the issue was not 
having uninstalled everything from my 64 bit python 2.7 I initially 
installed and whatever files were left over were screwing it up.  Long 
story short if you want to use numpy/scipy matplotlib combo it seems to me 
you need to just make sure you use 32 bit python 2.7 and all of your 
modules/libraries are also 32 bit.  If you've installed a previous 64 bit 
version of python make sure it is all gone!  Hope this helps someone.
