Now governor when you saga governor brewer go -- with the president did you think that happen to me.
I did -- brought back up memories it seems hard to believe is almost two years ago.
Here is a strange thing is the president's first visit after the oil spill we were on the tarmac he comes down there obviously stage they -- tipped off the wash -- -- watch this interaction.
-- and -- body arm takes me aside.
And here's the strange thing I didn't mind him being angry I thought he'd be angry about the -- spell the lack of resources -- -- -- get down there and say look governor we're gonna do everything we can't work together.
Instead he was mad that he was gonna look -- he was worried about some routine -- we forty sent his and his administration.
Nothing important something to that department agriculture.
-- -- amazed by two things one -- is mad about the wrong things and secondly that he was so thin skinned.
It was clearly a media -- clearly -- political -- They tipped off a couple Washington reporters to watch this -- -- actually get this picture it was disappointing I want him to be the president the country to come down here in lead in study was playing political theatrics.
And you said we can have later when you study coming potency in the federal government's lead us out to dry heat like that either so it only got worse.
Having said that seem to -- -- a Republican like you war and being that your interaction wasn't too positive.
And that she was -- Governor Perry at one point we go to support now.
Well look I'm staying out of the primary to re not supported -- he's got a great job record creation the -- taxes he in Texans were very very good depth at the state of Louisiana after hurricanes used off tonight.
Here's the important thing.
You know this election this upcoming general election is not about competing personalities are debate skills it's about two very different visions for our country under pres Obama every year we've had trillion dollar plus deficits fifteen trillion dollars of accumulated debt.
He is from the federal government to 24% of GDP taking over bank companies taken of her car companies now going take over Barbara health care system.
He is on a path towards more taxes more borrowing more spending.
You contrast that we're never Republican candidate who is serious about shrinking the size of government shrinking these -- cutting taxes -- going to private sector economy you could have a more -- different contrast between the two different governing philosophies.
So this is -- -- intensely fought election about the future of America right -- right now your focus on the future of Louisiana and one of the things you have to do is.
Get the teachers' unions -- -- them in in order to balance your budget -- -- with that.
Friday it was a -- Jamie we proposed a comprehensive set of reforms to improve educational wheezing and everything from making sure that only good teachers get tenure to making sure that we -- real shall we start kids so they're not trapped in failing schools what is so offensive to me -- one of these union officials the executive director -- our teachers union.
Came -- a week ago today.
And said that -- parents have no clue on literally quoting -- parents have no clue when it comes to making decisions for their kids educational decisions for their kids.
That is incredibly offensive -- that -- some moms that very next -- you tell me that.
And what they make choices their children every day they know what's best for their child their children -- better than some bureaucrat in -- merger Washington DC.
This is the problem of the union attitude they think they know better than parents what's what's right for -- these parents children.
Think about if a Republican if a conservative it said that a week ago the media at the White House -- be attacking that Republican it's amazing their union official can get away with saying that that -- parents have no clue.
We're proposing -- -- those same parents if their kids are trapped in failing public schools to take those dollars are being spent on their kids go to a private school go to or parochial school spend those dollars on online courses -- get a better education.
We've got great public schools in -- wheezing and what we've got to do better for every child.
