Fareed let's bring -- in.
He's the third guy running for president person I should say.
That we've had on our program today hermit -- -- okay thanks thanks -- to be here that long term we've enjoyed talking to Jeff's entire process and rate at which you've done it businesses helped us with the economic woes.
-- officially running right how do you feel about being third place 10% of the vote in the last Iowa -- still orally.
But somewhat encouraging I imagine.
How about the static -- something that a lot of people don't talk about.
The two people out ahead of me have twice the name ID.
A lot of the people that didn't get -- high were rated as I did have that much tied the -- so how do you explain that why are you resonating more.
Because of my common sense message about solving problems and because -- my background as a problem solver.
A problem solver who had major responsible -- is that Pillsbury.
Burger King got problems the national restaurant missiles -- If you look at that diversity of experience all of the major problems are solved -- different so mile approach to problem -- works that's what's resonate with -- Well why would we need that kind of experience now -- considering what went crazy and take a look at Washington DC it's a mess that is my grandmother would say -- Okay of the masses and this problem mass but we can fix it but it's -- we'll.
We're gonna -- problems surrounding itself with the right people with that's what.
Successful people do.
And being put into gaveled the right plants not pop on projects that keep failing and wasted -- As you know in Washington this week debt.
Talks are talks over the debt limit our -- this what would you do to break that impasse.
I wouldn't of allowed to get to this impasse that's the problem that's the lack of leadership -- if a year of -- the president had taken the leadership.
And -- it here is what we would do this is what I would have done it number one make sure we pay all of inches on the debt.
Number to make sure we pay the military and -- is number three.
Pay all the sent out all the Social Security checks and the mobile data Medicare deals in the -- everything else is on the table -- dramatic cuts so you don't have to do it but.
And the congress they have allowed this to become an opponent but big -- Chrysler you know so.
Times deadlines can be god -- because they could make everybody realize we cannot -- it down the road we have to make a decision can't leave this room until then.
Mark Zandi from Moody's says looking at deficit reduction he said the you have to agree to some tax increases to have some credibility.
From the economic perspective so he says to Republicans have to agree to that he's -- exactly a liberal economists your reaction.
Wrong he's dead wrong and he is why.
This is why the president and the Democrats wanted it to become a big a crisis so they could come back and tell the American people we have to raise taxes.
I predicted this nine months ago quite frankly jet that was the game plan to come back no we don't.
Take serious steps and cut.
Do some drastic things rather -- raise the -- Worried tomorrow you going to be in Greenville, South Carolina yes -- or economic vision called jobs for America gets there we need a lot of them what is -- idea.
The idea is first of all you've got established some guiding economic principles this is why it seems as if somebody ideas that -- put on the table from this administration number one.
Production must precede consumption is lack -- engine to a train and -- caboose.
All of the policies of this administration has been loaded and of the caboose and not put anything in the engine the engine is the business sector the administration say it that.
So we got the Health Care Reform bill -- caboose.
We got a trillion dollar that's been an -- to -- we got fourteen trillion dollars in national debt in the -- no fuel for the engine that's the problem become Bush's -- isn't that good bulls isn't little standing engine isn't getting into you which is the business sector this -- I -- -- -- you know that's -- Talk about pro that I tell you some of -- idea -- number one.
-- maxed one at 5% tax on corporate profits as well as individual tech in the going to -- 35% third -- -- we have only nation in the world.
That is not loaded in the last fifteen years number two.
Suspend taxes on repatriated profits.
We've got nearly a trillion dollars according to some estimates that out that that won't come home.
Because they're gonna be dumb attacks are you talking about big companies to do multiple casualty gets rather than send the money on the exact they keep it over there and they keep expand that over there how dumb is that that's -- -- -- number three take capital gains to zero.
Don't cut it.
Don't trying to take it to zero that will not allow the creation of a lot of capita equity especially for me -- -- the medium businesses now this is the most important thing.
Make those permanent uncertainty is killing this economy and those of -- -- components of the plan I'm gonna talk a.
Tomorrow I'm Brad talk about -- a little pick up that you just experienced in your own campaign gets in New Hampshire your campaign director quit saying that you had not.
I guess prioritize New Hampshire -- focused enough resource is there do you take that criticism.
I have been to New Hampshire fourteen times since January -- first.
I've been now what 21 times and that of the space that we also trying to get to so that is not bad for Mike Murphy left but he will what you say he's not telling the real reason why he left well.
Matt left for an answer is that what personal that I'm not gonna talk about but the fact of the matter is we have -- -- -- -- Replacement for him that we will be announced and within the next deal so so we won't miss a beat you know I was watching.
The Jon Stewart show The Daily Show yes he put together something on you.
Right and -- want to let's watch together I want to get your reaction OK he was talking about your plan and they kind of went off on what's -- And that Herman -- offers real solutions to fictional issues.
-- -- It treaties we'll have to fit on the -- gonna cereal box.
On the state -- -- -- -- will be remembered in -- -- of fortune cookie.
And I do not like to read.
I don't like to read -- As far as the ball if he had played that clip that he -- Five milliseconds the audience got the joke they laughed so obviously John stood -- -- -- didn't get the -- It was a -- -- -- point we don't need complicated large bills and -- to think about just do it first of all he's the comedian OK secondly.
Yes I didn't think it was -- great taste but -- -- but did you think it was racist I do not believe it was racist no.
Liberals have a problem will black conservatives.
Will John be in the liberal that he is it small law that Ahmad black conservative than it is because what happened at the black man that's why it's taken a shot because -- drivers are exactly and when you put that together with the fact that all of a sudden.
I'm number three in that our poll number one enthusiasm.
Novel -- because they have them in favorability.
Where did this guy come from right so he's not -- -- one that is already started to take attack take a -- I think and so.
That's gonna happen I don't think there's a racist selling his body I just think detective thank -- -- do -- that shows that he's not even thinking that way so therefore there's no governor.
That's just my opinion but real quick you don't have any military background senate talked to generals wanna talk to generals now they get a military plane -- -- would rather than wait to be elected.
I am talking to some security people I am talking to some retired generals but even -- that.
Brian -- -- is so much that they can tell me because this deal.
A confidential element.
-- with respect executed that I cannot get until I become president.
So I'm not sitting on the -- it's not talking to them now I wasn't a security -- just two days ago.
In all relative to all of the major things that we faced so I -- development but.
Have any plan to begin to talk about is way too premature for that are great hurricane joining us live today thank you very much Bob plays good luck and -- -- thank you -- -- -- -- -- -- Internet Dan thank you bet that a high.
