Now the polls are showing a former speaker of the house Newt Gingrich is leading the pack for the GOP nomination former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is trying to win conservative votes in Iowa.
And he's using the words of my next guest to help.
-- some of us.
Romney's conservative plan to get federal spending under control has been called the oldest GOP agenda since -- 1980.
Congressman Paul Ryan praised Romney's plan saying this is getting -- sort of prosperity agenda that will allow the private sector to grow.
And conservative columnist Ann -- says.
I think it's going to -- anything -- is the strongest candidate I think Republicans want to beat Obama.
Iran is an -- Mitt Romney because it's time we start believing in America again.
Joining us now with reaction the author of the New York Times best seller demonic cult there -- to -- -- you can just I'm not even.
Let me ask you about your W bush Arnold you call me a -- and then what kind of bad old grandmother a little.
I appreciate that let's get right into the hearts -- -- all right so you know this is so you -- but this is what you think and you then -- you've been very harsh against Gingrich.
Yes I mean -- -- you hear this often I think it actually is true.
For this upcoming elections the most important election our lifetimes.
In 1980 election was most important election for people who lived in the old Soviet Union but for -- -- -- If we don't repeal Obama care in the next four years it will never be repealed.
-- Republicans will have to run on -- improvements to obamacare -- on Newt Gingrich will call plans to reform Obama care right wing social engineering.
The treats don't kick in -- -- As soon as the treats kicking and we will never get repealed and that takes America on the path to being some mediocre Western European this is purely political terms and you think he is the most electable.
No no no I think -- the most conserve I think the two most conservative candidates.
And look people need time not a brokered convention you know knocking off Republicans these are candidates and we've seen them we've seen in Beirut that the two most conservative candidates -- if there were still standing now are Michelle Bachmann and Mitt Romney and and Michelle Bachmann I think she's terrific by the way.
But she is just a congressman she has never been in governor I think she is also probably -- little bit Biden Biden.
By the resemblance to Sarah Palin having had this woman last time this mining -- -- her eyes resemblance and bush in mass audience like any Obama but.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I'll tell you what my prediction is because then.
You can either totally congratulate me -- laugh at me.
Two years from now I don't like to attack Republicans.
Many of them have actual once.
Characteristics and they're good in the positions they're in now and I support from their.
Positions as representatives of governor or or Fox News host.
-- but I think.
Well -- put it in a nutshell what we don't run Chris Christie Romney will be the nominee on the.
Obama care for want to say.
And -- -- -- that was February.
Right last year when herb not like there was any of -- whenever.
We have and we have the economy in the -- we have Obama knowing nothing yeah I didn't say I hate hate Mitt Romney and now like -- -- -- and I thought he's all run run ST Romney will be the nominee -- it is now you're saying you Romney's not the rom then nominee will analysts.
No different predictions and -- have a lot better than you know everybody on MSNBC telling us it's going to be Pawlenty so so my prediction is holding I don't I'm miles and this is what got John I don't what I wanna change my mind about is that is weather up and -- -- -- I -- about three months after that on the spot some Fox News show because the economy was so bad and I said look.
I mean I'm I'm generally a pessimist or running against -- and maybe I'm not but.
We have was very close another testament of this popular democratic president he does have an attractive failed only yes the entire mainstream media behind him he's an incumbent that's why I thought the candidate we ran would -- I no longer think I now think Obama has a blast John I said that just a few months after -- statement -- -- -- but.
It's not really I think that big of a change -- to actually be don't know if my prediction is wrong now what I'm saying now we is all of the available candidates.
-- -- is by far the most conservative.
-- tied with Michelle Bachmann and he has he's he he hasn't proven I'm Billy.
Win -- -- -- brown and Williamson was once since I didn't at first -- you and I think the only two people to keep saying.
Romney was clever enough to outfox Democrats and he said a few things they probably put took apparently agency wouldn't wouldn't have taken.
But does he had to win in Massachusetts I think that's sure.
Yeah -- -- and -- our senate I think probably secret -- I cannot rob and our republic would be the president and I think but I also think Gingrich Bachmann Santorum.
Everybody -- Ron Paul would be the I have a problem Ron Paul's foreign policy and -- some of his.
Writings that what I'm -- With Newt Gingrich's big government conservatism I think that of the candidates on the stage Newt Gingrich is tied with Ron -- only Ron Paul because of his foreign policy as being least conservative candidate on the -- -- of opinion -- -- when he got -- putting government might be forced -- -- -- -- I studied this extensively for my last -- When it he had -- ten items they were conservative.
He fought for limited government.
It needs it took them seven times to get Clinton buy into their welfare reform bill it took to.
Casing in the Medici to get him to buy into him about those -- plan.
They went from a deficit to a surplus what's what's not go to -- -- -- -- working from for the congress on his -- -- the Senate Judiciary Committee after the nine before election because it was a big election I want things to change you know.
And I mean I'm gonna be writing about -- -- but the with -- Gingrich you get the worst of both worlds you've got.
The bombastic rhetoric but you don't get a policy change you have been calling for orphanages for children on welfare for them to be janitors who have been talking about.
On that is when I don't know he's shed about kids of orphans fund would be in janitors or somebody said yes he did he said that -- kids need to develop a work.
And lots and twelve years and I'm not gonna I'm gonna listen to you talk about all the hard work you've done thought about a million times on your -- I'm telling you.
-- -- -- He say and they could be general what do you also -- and -- by the -- this is what we want parents.
This envelope we went -- -- these -- Republicans retorted defending but the point is John we didn't get.
Kids getting more we didn't get -- orphanages for 44 children and what do balanced budget welfare reform and Mike pointed is what you get is the bombast that heat the blow back the image of Republicans of being cruel to you never get sick right let's quit.
-- won at least one Ronald Reagan everybody regardless of I I I will support the nominee and I am I was I told you also -- Jeffrey -- against Obama that isn't the question here.
The question is how do we -- felt all the way and I think we'd be Obama -- the most conservative candidate and with the one who has been elected in a very liberal state -- was calm was a turnaround that.
On the way to tell liberals that you're kidding about differed on or about ago -- -- stupid.
Let's try to get some things end up on the when one when -- -- Ron.
I was running down his Teddy Kennedy -- big campaign against him once you know the turnaround guy and and people lost their jobs.
Please use that bat against Romney -- on because I want him to go to Washington and have people -- -- -- jobs.
Bottom line is I think we have a much stronger field -- especially the media.
And the punditry class -- giving them.
Coulter is how you were for.
Dallas I'm gonna have gotten a few more points I don't look at it and hit a -- because I really like -- -- -- I'm gonna get married are you and somebody called up bud -- stopped at the end -- sweat this never happens she's deals you've got to go back.
Bonus deal is telling -- about all the jobs you have as a child that's what.
Hey listen I would have touching off a he would there when -- -- if you're bartender but not.
That one -- did not do a good job we're gonna do it again you're gonna do -- -- did this week -- and still --
