You said earlier that that it would take too long Tobin of American oil.
We defeated Nazi Germany fascist Italy and imperial Japan and three years and eight months because -- all we were serious.
If we were serious we would open up enough oil fields in the next year that the price of oil worldwide would collapse.
Now that's only do if we were -- serious -- -- -- Only a.
Newt Gingrich has taken over the front runner position in most of the polling we have seen over the past two weeks so what'd he do last night -- needed to keep that going Karl Rove former senior advisor.
And deputy chief of staff to President George Bush and also -- Fox News contributor -- doing Carl and good morning to you down there and -- in the Boston which they got last night how Gingrich still.
I thought it was a very serious debate all the candidates did well but -- to look.
They're fourth Asia look for in a debate tone and demeanor this is where he -- -- throughout he looks like the most informed person on the stage.
Disagreements matter where the differences between the candidates and we saw those last night for example the Patriot Act where he.
Had a sharp disagreement -- Ron Paul over over the necessity for the Patriot Act.
Then we get to moments sort of things that happen in the debate and again this was one of the moments in the debate when.
Ron Paul talked about Timothy McVeigh.
And and Newt Gingrich responded by saying that's why we need the Patriot Act Timothy because they succeeded in blowing up the federal building in Oklahoma.
And finally the things that matter are the new things in this is probably where.
You know -- provided the new for the evening last night by endorsing a path for citizenship for people here illegally inside the United States.
And this will be this thing -- that we now talk about in the days ahead and will impact for good or frail his.
And I'll Mario and on that point let me just play a little bit this one on for a little bit last night here's a part of that about right thirty seconds here on immigration.
I'm prepared to take the heat for saying let's be humane in enforcing the law without giving them citizenship.
But by finding a way to create legality so that they are not separated from national -- it.
And his overarching point is this there are millions of illegals who have been here for years maybe decades.
It is a very difficult thing to uproot them and send them back home and pop and practically impossible in his view.
There are millions of others who have come here recently in their ties do not run as deep and those people who say will be deported -- answer.
Well in the debate it was it was a controversial answer does have made it sound like he favored a path to citizenship after the debate he talked with Gloria Borger.
And he alluded that to this during the debate as well but.
There's -- conservative activists from Colorado named Helen people whose very active in The Heritage Foundation when the two sponsors of the debate last night Heritage Foundation.
Led by -- Fuller and the American Enterprise Institute led by Arthur Brooks both of who should got a chance to showcase their talent last night in the questioners.
But -- people's idea is to -- essence create.
If you're here illegally you can stay here but you have to get a card that allows you remain here pass background checks.
But you cannot become United States citizen and that's what -- was alluding to last night but again there's going to be controversial let's not kid ourselves.
You feel that's all right polarize it do you think solar is -- he says he embraced at the right way or the end well certainly he's -- -- nomination and the Republican Party.
Well look he he he recognized it was going to be controversial he said so last not I'm willing to take the heat he said who's trying to take a put a potential disadvantage.
Allowing these people remain inside the United States even though they arrived here illegally in -- -- here illegally for decades.
But trying to turn it into -- positive bus in -- recognize the the political -- -- the might emerge from this and I'm willing to take the heat and that.
That showed statesmanship and leadership look there -- this let's step back -- for a minute but from this controversy this whole debate.
Reminded us of a very important thing there's a very serious a discussion last night.
But people who were able -- you had disagreements you know.
Yet Huntsman and Paul verses -- a Romney on.
Whether or not Afghanistan we needed to keep troops there we had Perry saying no way to Pakistan Bachmann saying yes we need to keep -- -- extensively did all agree on everything.
But there is since July asked -- -- is very interested the debates Begin in late June since July the Republicans have been tied or ahead of of Obama.
In the generic Republican verses Obama Republicans been tied or ahead and I think these debates have had something to do with it.
And last night I think probably gave me everywhere regardless of what we flow where what the -- is on individual questions or answers I think probably made people more comfortable.
Even more comfortable with republic.
You do you think so -- was it was that serious -- that well done.
Aren't only look at the polling had to -- -- Gingrich has now taken the lead in the average.
Follow up a -- to one Robin does he stay there after last night.
And Herman -- -- -- number three there what does he do.
Yeah look Iowa is -- Has demonstrated a hyper sensitivity to immigration issues in this is the risk for -- remember Rick Perry had endorsed the DREAM Act of providing in state tuition to.
Sons and daughters of illegal immigrants and it's in -- in his first debate it's where he said.
He needed to agree with him you were heartless will he dropped in the Iowa polls like a stone now.
I think -- is not going to drop like a stone.
But I think -- is it recognizes.
This in western Iowa.
Is gonna cause of some indigestion among some voters.
But -- but again look you got it you can you're never gonna get everybody to agree with you on everything every time -- the question is.
How much fallen -- are going to be and how many people are going to be swayed by saying well it's a reasonable answer and he's not -- the -- Points in the ship or wages should point out western Iowa that's where the Republican votes are what it comes the caucus don't do the majority of them anyway.
Carl and I haven't.
Wanna say it's good to see if the states -- Turkey and hope you find yourself surrounded by family and friends from our okay.
