Top -- the -- Republican presidential candidates.
Candidate polls are close but the DNC still focusing on Mitt Romney even though we got trounced.
In South Carolina why.
We'll talk to ideas -- chairwoman congresswoman from Florida Debbie Wasserman Schultz about that in a moment -- -- -- -- congresswoman.
I just -- it it's great to have you today.
Let me take you back a couple of days last Wednesday when you read Gabby Giffords resignation letter there on the floor of the house.
If she say goodbye a year after she was shot had that had to be cancel -- when your worst days in congress.
It it was one of the most heart wrenching days I've been through.
But you know I'm so proud of Gabby.
She demonstrated that the selfless commitment to public service that that as he always has.
When she knew that guy was gonna take her a little while longer to it to get better and fully recovers she decided her constituents needed full representation and.
And I know how proud they are her as well and numbness or bad she'll be back and I didn't have a triumphant return.
And right and you've been there every step of the way with you with your friendship.
In work in your personal life.
But at seven that is more important and yet I mean unless importance let's just talk a little bit about politics but the the RNC and I mean that.
The RNC is using your voice in their new -- Let's take a look at it.
I am I didn't Atlanta I had friends and it did during -- nice little -- Hillary Clinton will without pain.
-- -- -- But that that's he had Jesus audio -- of people listening has satellite radio you were a big Hillary Clinton supporter.
In the RC is making the most of that.
The ally actually I couldn't see the video I could only hear the cheering but I remember how.
Forcefully I supported Hillary Clinton because you know a lot when I.
Grew up I was raised to believe that a little girl in America could grow up -- -- anything she wanted to be even president -- states.
Hillary Clinton has been an amazing secretary of state under president Barack Obama.
And that's because we had a remarkable field of qualified candidates who ran for president and now.
And actually right when that primary ended two days later I endorse President Obama and has spent the rest of the campaign -- -- Advocating for him and now I'm proud to support him for his reelection.
-- he's done an incredible job as president United States.
The congresswoman what the RNC is -- out there is it back in 2008.
You knew that Barack Obama was not up to the job -- -- since so much.
-- -- President Obama has been a president who's taken isn't -- only -- -- -- 50000.
Well let me let me give you my words now.
He's taken us found that bleeding 750000.
Jobs a month when he -- took office inherited the most problems that wants that any president since FDR.
Now three years later we've had 22 straight months of that job growth in the private sector.
He's begun to turn things around in Florida in particular.
It's important to note that the entire Republican field Gretchen mentioned -- none of the Republicans are talking about what's important to seniors in Florida.
I can I -- I agree with that because I represent the state of Florida.
I wanna make sure that we have Barack Obama back in the White House but still continued to protect Medicare I make sure that seniors don't have their benefits cut.
Republicans led -- -- not Mitt Romney support ending Medicare as we know it right support allowing such security to be invested in the stock market but that's the -- origins lie Eisenhower Barack Obama right.
And -- of course it does the candidates and the president could do would you good job.
It tackling entitlements rather than avoiding -- the RNC chairman.
Right to read this and I come out.
And compared the president that compared the president to the captain.
But while -- -- Escondido of the -- can courting of the Costa can cornea you're reaction.
Well I you know I'm I'm not gonna give any credence.
Two in those incendiary remarks.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Does a dramatic -- level of insensitivity to the families.
Of those victims I'm really not a comparison congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz we thank you very much for joining us today from -- thank you very much so much always a pleasure are.
