I would -- one month away from the Iowa -- former speaker -- did Gingrich leading the Republican feel that this out and supported shocking fashion over the last few weeks.
The latest real clear politics poll show him with 23% of the vote followed by Mitt Romney with 21% of the vote and Rick Perry.
Has 8% of the vote.
-- turnout is the presidential candidate and governor of the great state of Texas Rick Perry who I believe joins us from Nashua, New Hampshire -- -- Good morning and it's a beautiful day appear in New Hampshire a beautiful indeed.
-- look at the cover of Drudge Report right now governor it says and then there were two and there's just a picture -- and there's a picture -- -- And you're nowhere to be found and has the media -- depth focus is down to a two man.
Race when in fact there's still a whole bunch of people out there in contention.
I don't know them that in the media did have a load the people of New Hampshire and Iowa and South Carolina Florida the ones we have about and that's a reason I'm appear so.
-- our campaign has -- is moving right ahead former were talking to people let me tell you.
Here's what people are upset about they're upset about seven point seven trillion dollars -- secret loans that went to Wall Street financiers.
They know that there is a line drawn in the sand in this country right now on that line goes from Washington DC to Wall Street.
And they are not happy campers about it Americans are ready for an outsider.
That will come in and overall Washington DC.
And both of those guys at the top of that Lester what you would call insiders substantial insiders and Wall Street and Washington DC so Americans haven't decided yet at all.
Who they want to lead the Republican nomination.
And that we're going to be talking about that we're going to be talking about it and harsh and strong terms over the course the next four to five weeks as we get ready.
For those New Hampshire caucuses.
Now governor you just mentioned that allowed these secret loans -- federal loans that you -- they dwarfed far.
To be honest and how much money was given out without telling us that -- does that mean you -- -- I would -- occupied movement.
Well it here's what I I don't agree that.
You go break the law.
I don't think you break the law whether it's occupied a piece of property that your totally you or break the law.
With fraudulent intent.
If your Wall Street Bryant banker I'm about law and order.
That's the one of the reasons that.
Our failure came in yesterday and endorsed me because he understands.
That I had run an ethical -- -- hard charger and border security.
And that's the type of individual that Americans are looking for lead this country is a real leader not not someone -- is get up and maybe make a slick speech.
Someone who knows how to weave their way through the Wall Street to Washington.
Wait make a ton of money.
And in the taxpayers end -- -- -- -- put the build they're looking for and ethical moral strong leader.
And that's exactly what I've done over the last ten years as the governor of the state of Texas.
When -- other competitors Herman Cain has come under fire as we all know.
About a lot of these women problems and yesterday he said that he was gonna reassess his campaign in any sort of truce took a step back from that saying that he wasn't really quitting.
But if in fact he does get out of the race an interesting poll.
Shows at 37%.
Of the people would go to Gingrich fourteen to Bachmann 13% to Romney and 12% to you.
Will that be a huge boost to your campaign if Herman Cain does drop out.
Well I think here's the issues if -- you know he needs to address these allegations.
And you know that that's that's the bottom line he needs to address the allegations.
And and if -- -- -- he -- -- -- addressed with his family and people of this country so.
You know how it all breaks out I think that's that's -- that's just someone speculation.
Again I think this goes back to Americans are sick and tired.
Wasting their money putting this country in jeopardy of being bankrupt.
Seeing that downgrades have the rating companies and it's a Wall Street and Washington where the problem.
-- -- -- -- governor that -- to the -- of the wondered if you agree with Jon Huntsman ended.
That Herman Cain turned the part of -- stay in the race -- always distractions assisting on the issues that you prefer to talk about.
Well again I go back to he's got to address these issues.
And -- straight up and again if if these allegations are correct he has.
An obligation to as -- into the America what he has addressed and it's it's.
Are saying that there he says they're not true and he called her -- troubled woman at the latest one a let me move on to something else because.
You yesterday you got a lot of attention for.
Making what some people are calling another gas and I want to just listen to it and then we'll have you respond.
Those of you that are sitting in this.
In this hall.
Who are going to inherit this country.
-- -- -- Those of you that are will be 21 by November the twelfth.
I ask for your support and your about those of you who won't be just work hard.
So obviously nobody ages eighteen and immediately election seeing an Election Day I understand that I mean and the fact that you couldn't pull up to number twelve have tossed yup.
But what what do you make about the fact that you got the voting drop.
From time to time we all will get something wrong the president of the United States said there was 57 states -- -- so.
And then I'm sure he -- -- -- for a while.
But -- here is -- look at these issues.
Over the course of my.
Ten plus years been the governor of the state of Texas when someone doesn't wanna talk about the substantive issues when I don't wanna talk about the flat tax that I've laid out when I don't wanna talk about.
Major overhaul of Washington DC like going to a part time congress.
Which most of the states operate very well with.
They want to find some -- Air that you made it go talk about that so I'm gonna talk to the American people about the issues that are really important they know look I'm human being nominal makes them.
I'm gonna make some some mistakes from time to time and in my remarks.
If if they want -- robot as sheriff Joseph said yesterday go to Japan and buy one.
-- all human we're gonna make.
Mistakes it happens but if you're gonna by iRobot by American who surely why not.
-- governor I want the issues it is very important to border governor like yourself -- immigration.
And Newt Gingrich has taken some heat since your last debate where people of that and look he's he's suggesting amnesty.
Which he is you know he suggested which means essentially.
Model after World War II selective service community boards look at somebody's been in the country for 25 years and figure out whether or not they could.
Get path to legality of some way does that sound like amnesty to you.
Well I'm not for amnesty in any -- fashion and there's a lot of ideas out there about how you deal with the issue of immigration reform.
But they're all just.
Intellectual -- answer.
Until we secure the border.
One of the reasons as sheriff Joseph candid New Hampshire and endorsed me for the presidency because he knows that I've been dealing -- this issue for the last ten years.
And until we secure the border.
With the strategic fencing with the a substantial number of boots on the ground the aviation assets that will give.
Real time information down to the law enforcement fast response teams on the ground.
None of this really matters if you don't secure the border -- having immigration policy is nothing more than an intellectual exercise.
Well you gotta support you and secure that border right we'll governor I think all the candidates say that the number one thing -- is to secure the border.
But then what you know some estimates are we've got 101112 maybe twenty million illegals in the country.
Then what do you do with this people who have been here for instance in myths -- -- they go back time -- come.
I want to go back to this issue of securing the border though there there are a lot of people that talk about it you're absolutely correct.
But there's only one person on that stage it's actually dealing -- and has for the last ten years and that's myself but -- -- -- -- -- -- -- and -- -- -- pardon -- how do you deal with the people who -- here once -- secure the border.
That that is a conversation.
And a a great debate that that we can have a lot of different ideas out there.
But I wanna listen to the American people I'm not gonna this pitch out and I did say here's were.
We're gonna go with this here's how we're going to do it.
I think this is one of those issues that if you don't spend a lot of time.
With the American people how they want to deal with these you're going to be in trouble so my approach to this is to have a appropriate conversation.
Appropriate debate with the members of of congress.
And put immigration policy in place at the American people are gonna support not something that it does some think tank comes up with or somebody.
Pulls out of of a poll somewhere this is a very important issue you and it can can really create a great chasm in this kind of we don't get it right and it's one that has been debated for decades and never yet solved.
Always great to speak with you governor Rick Perry enjoy your day in New Hampshire we'll see you thank you.
Good to be with you also.
The electorate today meanwhile can you imagine not.
