Some have said Newt's you know for guys like Newt Gingrich it's gonna be now or never in Iowa.
Do you think that's -- case or is it still early.
Left the first delegates are picked in January.

Candidate the kickoff of the real dialogue for the fall.
How will have a very big check and I assume governor -- -- come -- after Iowa.
Governor Palin's gonna show paired I think tomorrow.
But not be on the ballot and are not least not be campaigning in and so we still have a lot of flux.
But I think the important thing the American people when they watch tonight is this.
Did you say petty game of people trying to take shots at each other war.
Are we talking about real solutions now.
To the crisis we have you look at this economy you look what happened in Great Britain you look at what's happening in Greece.
We ought to be focusing all of us who want to be leaders of the countries should focus on what should be done next week what should be done to help America right now.
And I think this this can be one of the most interesting debates nonsense.
Because what's happening around us is so historic.
But it needs to be different in politics as usual He needs to be real leadership.
You what is -- conversation starter what is solution a number one today.
I think congress ought to come back and -- session next Monday.
I think they ought to repeal the Dodd-Frank bill on the sarbanes Oxley bill immediately in the first two or three days coming back.
-- they ought to reshape how they're approaching the government to bring in the people from strong America now and apply lean six sigma.
To every aspect the federal government -- say 500 billion dollars a year.
And rapidly improve the government.
And the -- -- -- -- every state and every county.
Find out what -- the worst regulations the worst red tape the most expensive federal requirements and eliminate -- return to the tenth amendment.
But this is gonna require real change and I guess what people -- Washington -- get it's not tweaking a little more tweaking a little less.
The world economy's in trouble the American economy's in trouble as part of that.
We -- will liberate the American oil and gas industry you realize that oil production of in the Gulf of Mexico.
Is projected need to go down by 240000.
Barrels a day.
Because the Obama administration's policies it ought to be going up not down will be creating more jobs not killing jobs.
-- this is -- you think that tonight's debate will put heat.
On President Obama because you're gonna have all of these Republican candidates up there as you just did with us.
Actually putting out play it's about what they would do with the economy and creating jobs he's tonight's debate.
Going to put much more pressure on the president to actually put out a plan.
-- I think fourteen million unemployed Americans and ten million underemployed and dropped out of work Americans one out of every six Americans fits those categories.
We have -- largest number of food stamp recipients in American history.
I think that's what's putting the pressure on the president.
As president states his an obligation to leave the American people to prosperity.
To lead the American people real solutions.
And frankly the last century weeks have been a disaster.
From the standpoint of the American people in the American economy.
What what what President Obama does understand.
Is that the combination of bureaucratic socialism with Washington micromanaging the country in class warfare.
Is devastating for our economy is killing jobs is slowing down the economy dramatically.
And and and as recently -- his statement two days ago as the stock market was collapsing -- three days ago.
Nearly didn't you offset and does a press statement militias back to class warfare we've dealt with the stock market collapsing.
Why would you want to attack the very people you need.
Did back in the market in order try to help stop the cold -- the decline of the American.
Value system -- -- remember that for most people.
-- stock market is their pension plan it's their retirement it's their lifetime savings.
People have a right to be concerned and respect to president.
To offer positive leadership -- really specific solutions.
Well it's interesting stuff you get plenty to talk about tonight crucial beat -- on the stage of the bunch Republicans everybody wants the president's job.
