Obama -- associate publisher of a social media magnate dot com and it's really great to see you here -- -- -- and other leaders and we're happy to have you on board as well.
Also I want to let you know that we have.
He's my voice is good that's eutectic presented Sabrina Schaeffer who is a managing partner -- evolving strategies -- -- -- brands are about despite.
-- -- -- -- -- -- I'm glad you're on -- too great to see you today.
Thanks for having me just talk for a moment about let me ask you for right -- -- what do you think about the fact that governor Rick Perry continues to drop fire.
From those who are saying -- either -- talking -- but the fact that He.
Remains as someone who is not getting that kind of scrutiny that.
One should have at this point particularly since he's seeking in the top position in the country.
Well I'm not sure it's quite fair I mean first of all let's remember we have three GOP -- coming up in September so governor Perry as well as the other Republican not your candidates the hot honey it's time to.
Lay out their positions and sort of get their views out there and and a fairway.
Buttons for loses a lot of the criticism has been -- his views -- speech rights and federal.
Right and I think that thing that has made -- attractive to many you know Republican voters is that He seems to be pushing back on an administration that.
It seems that think that federal parking continually trumps states' rights.
And I think it to that regard He he's he's sort of tapped into the national like ice and I think that.
A lot of voters are going to appreciate that what -- the.
What that is that's what he's done exactly what he's done he's he's tapped into the countries like guys.
Yes and I thought it was very easy I don't know what I radical Bill Ratliff said He was the lieutenant governor under -- that.
He thinks that Perry's the best I've ever seen at picking up -- trend of movement and getting out in front of -- that's exactly what he's doing when you know who basically is it that this is about the tenth amendment.
You know as good as the battle for the soul of America -- the way that he's framing his campaign.
And that is resonating with voters obviously in a way dad who are there -- -- voters in the same way that the tea parties -- exactly voters exactly and he's.
Getting out and eat your dinner he's had a -- -- right smart I mean it's very smart prisoners.
But at the same time I think we need to recognize that his that his significant lead in the polls and -- more a function of political awareness.
The necessarily that voters have made up their mind for an election that -- -- fourteen months away.
And people are on vacation returning to school there -- thinking about the fact that they need -- job I think really had to take some of his.
-- the potential support with the greatest saw.
I recognize that it may be that people are just beginning to tune in and want to see where things go as an incident to -- season this fall.
I I really don't think it would definitely made up their minds of course this far out but of course the fact -- even that double digits at this point.
I guess that Romney is very telling -- I would -- say.
-- but you know what we've -- -- yeah.
-- double digits outcome more scrutiny Scotland now Donald -- more scrutiny that's what happens to everybody runs for president and recently you know and you -- you say that he's not under scrutiny but.
They're already talking about you know -- flipped on gay marriage.
He used seventeen billion in federal stimulus money to balance his State's budget and in the last two -- -- These little fat foods are starting to come out that don't.
Yes well I I think.
Don't quite important or am I hot button and it didn't still riding a wave of a sort of a honeymoon period and is that real tough spirit in me this happened I bet not let's not -- -- Look at what what do you want to defend what is now is Michelle -- now exactly because everybody was -- and are just ten days ago.
Right right and that's -- I named -- public awareness and He just got into the race to be together and I just pushed back -- Nike merits for one fact OK glad -- you may not agreeing -- with governor Perry on the issue of gay marriage and that's perfectly fine but I think that it's a little unfair to say that He flip flopped on that issue the fact is that.
She's responding to its -- you know a desire by Simon -- Republican Party to.
Have and -- -- federal mandate against gay marriage.
I'm but I think he's going about it -- appropriate channels whether or not you agree with him going about it I.
It by initiating a constitutional amendment the right way to -- things as opposed to say.
You know holding hostages they -- no crime is Palin's -- hostage with his stimulus money if they don't.
You go along with the with certain legislation so I think that in that sense He he's not exactly contradicting himself He simply -- I mean I agree with this policy.
How are you say not fair when I was gonna say it's not I'm not being found trust -- the other side but you know this.
That's the issue.
-- I mean the in the issue for him basically wise is this a state issue or are we supporting a federal amendment.
And you know He sort of gets caught in the crossfire there I mean I do understand that I'm still gonna be fair --
