Welcome back to -- I don't guys have been doing the same song and -- now.
For weeks that President Obama on his economic record.
But we've yet to hear any of their plants and voters are demanding answers -- New Hampshire.
That -- -- -- and got in the heat exchange with a voter who asked just that -- -- Fifty states in America about -- budget every year.
I balance the budget every year it.
What -- did you had your turn you had your turn -- let me have mine -- -- and let me have -- yeah listen I can get a microphone a moment but let me complete.
I'm sorry it's my turn you -- -- now it's my turn.
Would you please hold -- a moment let me finish good.
-- Let me just say yeah sixty and that and the British say that I didn't have much of a technology -- segment I don't know anything about you probably know by now but you know little about politics.
And I did make a prediction about Mitt Romney I think last week and that's so this is.
-- the sort of what I said about.
Let -- I've always thought that Romney was a mile wide and an inch deep and because he's changed musician -- thing.
The conservatives have a lot of questions about him here -- -- Perry command with the American -- all of a sudden he's beginning to fall behind I'll tell you Romney is not.
A wire to wire from America.
You know it's that kind of thing did you only get coming here -- five or at least out of this seat checks.
The plant Mike Furrey if you -- bit Romney is like somebody you hook up with.
You know periodically until you get serious you want to meet somebody serious so we.
-- I think it is that's what -- saying -- Republicans are looking for somebody to settle down with.
In the meantime they were just hanging out with Mitt Romney had didn't have a hundred times a day want to get that does not look like -- done did -- He was friends with better.
And it hits and Harriet marriage material.
I'm not but not obamacare -- act now.
-- I think this reaction from Mitt Romney is great I mean let's get serious for a second -- Ronnie was very.
Stiff very data plan -- on the campaign trail.
A lot of people thought He was sort of robotic and non emotional about the country's -- issues kept a win win Rick Perry got in the race we were talking about this here on the five last week I said.
That the competition was gonna make Mitt Romney a better candidate and now there's a real fire under -- -- because Rick Perry after two weeks.
It is running away with the front runner -- title so this is actually good for -- he's showing some passion I love to get some -- Think it's because he's the a religious and moral I went somebody snaps they never swear I think he's very very angry but it's still clean yeah honey I love I love that.
-- -- -- -- -- -- And the chicken salad.
But go ahead by Robert the other thing -- and we've had this discussion almost every single -- Perry got into the race that he's the real deal.
And he's proving to be the real deal at Villanova pulled 29%.
Mitt Romney drops the 17% -- -- the -- I was a Romney done just as you do that we'll say this apparent now has a little bit of problem here.
And that is he's inherited the front runner mantle and with that welcome the scrutiny that comes from the front runner He has not shown himself to be the best and under exposure early I wanna get better why not -- -- his original comments that either one the one -- don't know on the one that I -- I recall the -- he's not telling laziness and -- meant to say treacherous in these entries and whatever it might sound regulation conservative he's -- conservative choice is what it is.
Is that what he's saying is now the scrutiny the spotlight is on it carries a rise in -- case and it's easy to get in the classic -- now bright when I was happening but not even put yourself as a contender there.
Make the -- -- getting a bump now let's see if it's sustainable because everybody's not going to be trying to pick him off Democrats and the Republicans that's -- that's.
I'm getting on the -- another prediction here my prediction is it that Perry will win Iowa you and Mitt Romney who in New Hampshire is very well financial -- -- -- South Carolina.
And if -- cuts a deal to put one senator from down there -- as a ticket.
He could get the nomination the best thing could happen to -- as ever aren't gonna be on the best and yet have a lot of anti plus anti lock in what is it -- -- -- like you guys and it's that next GOP debate on fox and yeah that's gonna be you don't lay down this road for the while -- gonna be interesting to see Rick Perry and then Mitt Romney and -- -- -- kind of front runners go ahead.
Hopefully they -- -- -- and mother when you talk about a -- carry out their knees making some off the cuff comments.
And a lot of people are -- them all he's not ready for the national stage at the Bernanke comments on I think the American people want straight talk I think they want candidates that are not gonna dress it up.
That are going to speak you know from the heart.
And and and stick by their conservative values and not make any apologies for I think the country's ready you know what is.
Another although I haven't apologists you conservative -- closing not know what you're talking about how they got that you know how He knows exactly where.
Are afraid to -- Perry in Obama is very distinct.
Perry had to kick in if you -- get -- He was in Obama had album open forums and have their credit cards between Perry and Romney is carries weight more conservative and -- so -- -- -- -- ability to have if you don't like that I can't like I.
Everywhere are all about how cattle and not much -- -- -- we got a lot more to get June.
