This is bigger likened to bust his fondness very same part of the campaign -- actually just enjoying the -- coming out of.
-- fundraising yet men who are -- the whole -- of -- representative of the campaign and -- pay for the answers me.
I last night I should tell you that we all thought you were gonna come not sling it and you seemed a little more sober tear your responses to -- and -- it.
-- governor Romney said about your record.
Actually met was.
Dishonest cell line.
Well -- you decide but in the -- he'd be the easiest example is.
He said that he only voted for -- -- the democratic primary because there was no Republican primary and during the debate.
-- -- -- that that was baloney that in fact George H.
And Pat Buchanan were on the very same day putting and I just a faulty memory.
-- he's had enough different things that -- implausible I think I think that the governor says what he needs to say to get through this minutes.
Without -- -- as of tomorrow.
We'll let the audience seemed to me.
That's antibodies to get stuck on the instant Sydney -- is so much less I think I think that was probably is basically he's had as.
Just estate offices in Jacksonville.
I think they've -- it pretty good job making sure that people were at the event.
But that was fine I don't mind.
What what what -- -- was he was saying things -- -- from a substantive on that can't be true.
-- -- again and again and in fact.
By the time the debate was over there were various factions into someone alive we'll blisters do that is your -- your voices on.
And another point you did talk about his -- being a blind trust and literally by the time the debate was over.
There was a fact check news that's just not true.
And so -- everytime you turn around it was a new falsehoods from from -- Do you think those falsehoods that did you alleged.
I was in that they threw up.
I those resonate here in Florida Tennessee and have an impact on the.
I think it has an impact because.
Presidency is so important.
And the ability of a presidential lead the American people by telling the truth is so important.
That if you Begin to get a sense of this is a person will say anything do anything make up anything.
You really undermined his credibility is essential for us.
But as an upgrade you to say in -- debate and I know that you had some ads as well.
Is the media when you need finger against time.
I think on this one I've been up -- And the reason is I think the media is kind of amazed.
At the level of dishonesty.
I've done strip where he is today where people.
How could you thinking you know it.
The mission to Washington when they go talk to Romney and there's some of these -- -- -- clearly falls.
That it's very hard from plan anything except he just wasn't on the -- looks -- you before the debate during breaks after the we're collegial answers.
Even -- -- -- lawyers notre.
And I never let me I was -- somebody -- -- -- down.
I was actually do believe me if I'm not someone who -- don't meet I was -- I mean Amber's face tonight I think I think.
Q and is it part of -- -- debate the way do I think you have to as a potential president and maintain a standard of dignity.
What people think you're not capable of impressive feat people want.
A sense of stability because the level of power we give presence is so great.
Do you want a sense that this -- a person so what kind of school bus trip we don't have the person -- -- the plus off plus.
You wanna have persons and be safe with your children well the president -- that sense has 305 million people to be safe.
Well you've raised this the safety issue I -- let me -- and a -- one of the allegations against USA -- Iraq.
And then an island Bob Dole has made that -- allegation mountain.
Why do you think in the same -- -- -- -- The Washington establishment newspaper.
There's a new Wall Street Journal poll out this as I would be Romney fifty to 39 nationally it was a two person race.
I think the prospect of Gingrich actually becoming president for the old guard.
And -- at all comfortable there offset new ways are all part of an establishment.
I come along them a genuine populist.
I know enough about Washington changes and -- enough from Washington changes.
Yeah I think they find that a -- I'm Tom DeLay as well as -- pretty sick establishment could use of change.
Okay let's not let that Tom DeLay who is being -- when he was speaker he's he's come out against -- -- time that I tried and generically against him I was speaker.
Tom DeLay engaged in behaviors -- ultimately the amended court.
We are very different people I don't agree with his style -- business approach I don't do this tactics.
There's just highlight the average American understood delightfully and usually.
And when landslide.
-- -- -- -- Recent coordinated effort all these people who work you have come out against you it's almost like everything on them -- let's let's all do it today -- us credit abstinent when you.
Romney has an enormous amount of money.
He is able to eleven organize a lot of things he's -- lots of lobbyists which is a great irony.
While attacking me falsely.
Freddie Mac in fact is surrounded by Freddie MacBook is so there's lots of people organize things and he had.
Three or four parallel articles attacking me falsely about Reagan in the same morning.
Which you know is as an orchestrated attack that's the Romney machine doing his job.
Can you overcome the -- -- -- meeting in Florida I think how much I had no idea.
Polls one vote would be good like more because it's winner take up right -- right.
Is it to get that if you don't get fifty.
How important Florida obviously want to win Florida -- -- Florida you don't win Florida is it catastrophic your campaign.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- South Carolina would have been catastrophic flora -- and I want to win I think we can -- I think we probably will win.
What if we come very very close.
The race will go on.
And I think the more people know about how liberal he was in Massachusetts.
And the more they learn about how.
A little regard he has for the facts on the harder the race is going to be for I think it's gonna get steadily worse not better from -- standpoint.
It seems demonstrate that hijacked the word that conservative government's trying to claim -- -- he's the true conservative.
Tom DeLay says that you're not a concern in congress to not tell me -- what to -- deserted look -- the Red Cross struggling -- I don't mind.
Well let's say somebody who believes in the constitution the declaration of dependence.
Lower taxes more private sector activities stronger citizens that we -- bureaucrats.
Deciding play strong national defense belief that there is dangerous world.
And -- need to be strong enough to defend yourself.
-- and others.
All I can forges I -- in 90% of Americans -- union voting record for twenty years.
I was an ally of Reagan as an ally of camp and -- it back to the seventies.
We reform welfare cut taxes and launched.
-- budget process that led to four consecutive bouts -- the only time in your life.
That's not a conservative an -- with these guys that you conservatives sure president Mitt Romney who is pro abortion.
Pro gun control pro tax increase.
Look at his record in Massachusetts.
Crowd is now selection process now he's running for president -- he's given up remedies to.
Because he didn't really do those things because we've done those things could run for president so therefore they couldn't have happened.
Because that would not aquifers and ambition and the fact is when he had power -- -- as a pro abortion.
Pro gun control pro tax increase governor he ranks third from the bottom and job creation and Massachusetts.
Senator Santorum -- And agents and and so on and Jenny did of their minor things you voted for big labor and -- from Pennsylvania.
You know there's certain parallel realities.
If you're both concern -- well I should -- what's wrong with that means -- -- I mean president -- it -- terrific guy and I like him as a friend.
I am the only person race.
Who has helped organize them on.
National campaigns that were decisive victories for conservatism.
And a person race who has organized very largely unchanged.
Welfare reform balancing the budget -- on a scale that you know that are are very very difficult to do.
It's not just question about ideology -- can you turn it from a speech.
Into -- program.
And you -- from an idea into an achievement.
That's very very hard.
-- -- -- I'm old enough to remember all the discussion about JFK and -- -- it go to the moon and given last -- -- -- felt inspired why people aren't laughing.
Your -- idea.
Because it yeah.
Thank you it was a big big -- -- -- -- -- a title -- -- the very reason I'm running.
We have gone through a period of -- -- -- country.
We lacked self confidence we lack a romantic vision of being an American -- -- connection with the American exceptional.
We know we have a national -- which was to manage the decay they don't go through the process of change.
And so -- -- comes along when we doubled the National Institutes of Health while balancing the budget.
We know how to do these things and if you actually look at my speech in Cocoa Beach to have people from the space coast.
It's a very sophisticated -- probably very bold new approach pushing largely relies -- private sector dollars into any.
Boulder in -- what you seek to -- -- -- cost -- like JFK the dot in 1961 -- -- 61 it is in fact.
This speech that I will push it Richard Nixon given.
Because we had I wrote a book can actually talk to young scientists at NASA and developed this models and jet.
We had a momentum of its site and the Apollo program.
That was moving us towards attracting young people in the science and math engineering technology.
We we we had a rhythm and then we'd be Iraq criticize the whole thing.
It became more.
-- -- and as -- we've seen that people have ever made fun of that of course I -- it up and immediacy and all of field Atlanta.
And his program perfectly happy to have designed very simple.
Are you comfortable the Chinese now become the dominant country in space and do you console of the Chinese and colonizing the month.
There's -- Chinese have announced publicly plans to get to the -- before we do what you want them.
-- what you want well first of all the moon has a tremendous amount of water.
Water is a very useful thing to have if you want to go to Mars because water is a terrific shield from radiation.
And so it's -- you're serious about going out into the into the -- -- the system.
Having the moon isn't as a refueling place you don't try to lift water off the earth.
Which is -- off the moon to pick up water is very important the -- also -- also some minerals.
But but more importantly.
There are times in the -- history of the human race when you have to have people with the courage to go into the future.
And countries that have that courage Elizabethan England.
Americans in terms of the nineteen hundred's those countries create brand new features from all humans.
Countries and turn their back on the future and settle down to -- gracefully.
Those countries give up their heritage and long when they give up their power and -- have to keep.
I I confess I first heard.
That's going to be in now and it's done -- -- -- account instantly that I thought back to the JFK speech and and that -- in 1960 when it might not -- that's ridiculous you.
Plus I do a movie publicity wanna go in which we have business segment of Kennedy's speech actually -- -- -- did -- air force.
And I mean they actually give a result of the great gesture to say he should have to realize Kennedy says.
May have 61 were gonna go to the movies this decade.
No American had been -- the only person -- but it was during the I don't know Russian one American have been suborbital space that's all.
And -- the president is saying in.
Less than nine years.
We're gonna find the technology and we'll do a musician and train astronauts -- -- on how to do it.
And we will be on the moon July 1960.
That's pretty cool.
And -- for America that unleashes its people to be pretty cool again I have friends who are stingy boring and have no vision.
I don't think that makes for very depressed.
Out Agassi your Passat isn't much of the night at 10% would be.
I don't partnership -- -- I'd like to get between.
Eighty and 90% of the money out of -- -- think think about billionaires.
Mean when winds -- gonna do is established president council on expiration.
Which is exactly what the Royal Society was started in the seventeen hundreds.
People get together once a month and -- let's find enough millionaires and billionaires and say NL I'd love to be participants.
And I'll kick in my share.
And you get the rhythm of those kind of people moving and designing things usually don't have fifteen years of -- -- plan.
You have a three weeks.
And who fills up because that's how they -- that's -- -- -- -- -- life and ability unless it is done with and I.
Amazingly less expensive you look at the experiment is underway between the founder of British virgin.
And great American innovator within and try to find a very low cost Wimbledon -- who airplane.
To find a very low cost way to take tourists into space.
These guys that it is doing that without waiting for the congress and I hang around waiting for twelve your -- okay.
If we made that rhythm and pattern on goal.
We haven't -- here's the most dynamic space industry -- match.
I guess it -- -- and how different countries.
That we -- -- You know tackle.
That's in reality -- lost.
The sense of being an American I'll never forget what we should meet it but and it and we we should be unrealistic impractical and pop charts.
Well Ronald Reagan gave -- speech in the strategic defense initiative and help break some of them it was unrealistic and -- them off the charts.
Okay got and that -- and the same and -- -- in his inaugural address uses something like.
We have every right to dream heroic dreams after all.
That's what I intend to -- People say have lots of ideas lots of great ideas but that they don't get carried out any thought -- that criticism of him.
First majority in forty years -- just reelected majority since 1928.
Welfare reform thirty years after Reagan started the conversation.
Only -- balanced budgets in your lifetime.
So what's -- -- why why do you critics let me see is on the list -- -- convenient or.
What is it as you -- in -- a lot of your former colleagues the wrong way.
-- -- a real leader who actually wants it to congress is -- That's him not prevention.
And guys getting their little for a project -- not defensive guys -- -- little piece of turf.
I mentioned in getting things done -- -- street getting things done and been a bullet try to shop and I count six.
Well first -- -- purpose.
I would have -- for balance pledges that was accomplished.
Now what for the army's training and doctrine command starting in 1979.
And how you develop implement and train battle for us.
Have the longest serving teachers union military commentators.
Just steadily and methodically doing stuff.
