Did you -- Mitt Romney and we Begin with his take on the president of the United States.
What's the matter with president Obama's leadership you say that he's not doing a job I mean obviously the unemployment rate in the economy shaky there's no doubt about that what about Obama the man what what is he missing in the leadership component in your opinion.
Well one he's never been a leader before.
And and so a few of us looked at him and said what do you think about selecting the man as president who's never let anything he didn't lead in the -- and you tell you it.
It's wonderful to be able to be an author and an editor but I'm talking about leading an organization.
Leading a group of people -- a growing something hiring people firing people all the process of leadership.
He's never had that experience he didn't recognize -- part of leadership is finding allies and friends across the aisle.
And building relationships of trust and respect with them.
Working to find common ground and what do you do that in the private sector or in the voluntary -- -- I did the Olympics or in the state of Massachusetts where my legislature was 85% Democrat.
I've had the experience of leadership this president hasn't -- you socialists.
You know like I prefer to use the term that he's just over his head you have -- you got to look at his economic plan and an economic plan was top down federal leadership get us out of the recession we spent.
Billions of dollars.
And people say listen to guys as socialists its class warfare that's what he's gonna -- against you if you get the nomination you're rich guy you're out of touch.
Is he is socialist.
It you know I consider him a big government liberal Democrat I think -- you look at his policies you conclude that.
He thinks Europe got it right and we got it wrong.
I think Europe got it wrong I think Europe is not working in Europe and I'll battle him on that day in and day out but -- but are probably not going to be calling him names so much.
As calling him a failure what happens if he -- again.
I think we hit a Greece like -- Some going to be -- I think I think before the end of his a second term if -- were reelected.
There's a very high risk that we would hit a a financial crisis that Greece or Italy have faced.
I think it's also a very possible that we would continue to see very high levels of unemployment.
I think you'd see him industry in this country -- -- the -- big and small decide to go elsewhere to take their investment dollars to other nations.
This this president has put together the most anti investment anti growth anti job.
A series of policies I've seen since Jimmy Carter what about North Korea the not dictator died today.
Another -- of missiles and all that business didn't you know movement -- dangerous world we know enough about North Korea to be able -- situations.
I can avail myself of the best thinking of people from around.
Around me and around the nation.
And look at all the options we have evaluate those analyze that that's what Herman Cain said -- I didn't know anyone or anything he's I know a great deal about North Korea but before I would take it a step with regards to North Korea.
I'm bringing a lot of people get a lot of opinions.
Analyze and thoroughly and then take action -- examination -- very dangerous -- looked at -- Who -- right now with North Korea now there's the potential.
That that the Kim -- it and will.
Will do something provocative who what when change a curse.
A -- more fragile.
But there's also an opportunity in North Korean navy and -- if -- wise there we might be able to.
-- -- and they paid the greater degree of openness and and see the kind of change there we hope to.
I realize -- when you hear Ron Paul say -- the United States screwed up everything in weird.
It's our fault of the Muslim jihadist -- -- -- us -- -- we should be friendly to Iran and they don't -- have a nuclear weapon when you hear a guy like that who may win Iowa what goes through your mind.
Well it's badly mistaken I think the evidence points quite clear to the fact that that Jihad -- Is not something we cost we have to recognize that we are in conflict with Jihad isn't.
And and that ultimately the idea of Iran having the nuclear weapon.
Would suggest that fissile material may find its way probably will find its way at some point into the hands of Hezbollah Hamas or some other agent of -- And and the world will have nuclear terror this is unacceptable to us.
Well you're gonna take military action to stop it because China and Russia we cooperate enough to strangle -- Iran to force them stop it probably one of the greatest failures of this president's administration a failure of leadership.
Was when he decided to give Russia their number one foreign policy objective.
Which is removal of our missile defense sites from Poland he gave them that.
And did not get in return an agreement on their part for crippling sanctions against Iran.
Unthinkable failure if he was gonna do that get some get something back and that by the way that would have left China out there is the last man standing.
My guess is we could have pushed China -- I don't that was then and this is now an air chug along trying to get these nukes in the new president's gonna have to commend and do watt.
I am ready to make sure that we have military options that combined with crippling sanction which we have -- -- -- -- well but we have we have developed in a way that Iran understands we would use military options in my unit tough guy you gonna sit and stare them down and say look I'm gonna use and because if you bomb Iran that starts world war three you know it.
I mean they're gonna try to do block Hormuz.
Oil will double.
The unintended consequences or war -- against United States all over the Muslim world to be horrible.
That's what Iran is banking on then there's the other side of the story which is not taking action with crippling sanctions and treating them as the -- they are.
And preparing military options is if you don't do those things that Iran has a nuclear weapon.
That nuclear material will ultimately no doubt about it it's good that you tell you say you're telling me today -- tough enough.
All right to take them to tell Leo Marlins over there because they're calling the shots not the -- be up and Jimmy John in the look.
You can do -- news.
We're gonna bomb you we have a number of things we can do short of military action that we have to prepare now -- we have to prepare as well for military action.
It in order to concentrate their mind for -- question here.
To me the most serious problem facing the country is -- fifteen trillion dollar debt.
Cuts when you see the pin heads and congress they can't even get together cut one point two trillion how you gonna cut.
This step down now gonna go down 33 basic steps of one eliminate a lot of programs we don't have to -- If they want what what do you -- well Obama cares aegis but the and there are others number to take a lot of programs that are growing at an uncontrollable -- like Medicaid.
Turn it back to the states and say that's gonna -- now at the CPI plus 1%.
That -- a hundred billion dollars a year and number three we cut workforce by 10% through attrition.
We link federal pay with a pay that exists in the private sector that's worth 47 billion dollars a year and then reform.
Social security and Medicare now for current retirees but for the next -- -- -- be an attitude on we appreciate you coming on and good luck in the campaign thanks bill good to be with you.
