All right and then you have.
Presidential candidate Rick Santorum watching -- himself hey hey you you've got to know senator -- that if you gonna make a -- that's a good one to make right.
And that's it.
Got a pretty funny when -- make that was.
That was about my fourth and fifth town hall meeting I got you national Taylor a shows I've gotten two hours of sleep it was -- -- the last it was like the last and I -- I must admit I was a little -- she hadn't in -- sort of slipped out that it was a funny one debate yeah.
Well in this race -- so much has not been so so funny I mean a lot people have criticized you when the other Republican candidates for getting down and dirty.
I do you think that's helped or hurt the party inevitably.
Well I can say is that we run a very very positive race -- -- talk about what we're gonna do that to get jobs back in this country to give opportunities for everybody in America to rise that's been -- resonating here in Michigan.
The fact we've got a plan for manufacturing we've got a plan to reduce energy prices and and really get this economy taken taken again it's really resonating here -- you know governor Romney's attacks you know I can't sit there and just be pummeled and not respond to that meant.
And and that's -- we've done and I think people see that -- were the best candidate to come out of Michigan and and take on Barack Obama and that's what I hope will be be loud and clear tonight.
And know what candidate not the president ordinary yourself for Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich's -- Ron Paul gonna win without gaining the purple states to battleground states.
And going to a recent poll.
You only have a 38% favorability there used to be a lot higher Mitt Romney's even worse in -- -- a two point 7%.
Say this whole battle is weakening the Republican field your reaction.
Well I mean yes of primaries -- for that you know you you have to get dislike get out of its its like -- -- a fifteen round fight every other week that's and you -- -- battle and then.
That that primaries over to go -- go battle on other stated.
That's what happened four years ago remember every so what we have to get the Republican primary over so we can take on whoever the Democrat is make.
Here they went into the into the summer and every once in all there in other killed each other don't think he is that whoever wins this nomination we're all gonna get behind.
The key is to defeat Barack Obama I've no doubt the Republicans are gonna coalesced behind whoever the nominee is and we will have a very strong effort in candidate in the fall.
Do you write today in the pages of the Wall Street Journal -- an op Ed talking about my economic freedom agenda.
He needs to say that Mitt Romney announced last week that he's gonna cut taxes across the board 20% seven the right direction but it's not enough.
Yeah I mean you know it's not a very bold.
Plan -- -- the Wall Street Journal announced the same you know we've got double play and not just on cutting individual -- but simplifying the code dramatically justified deductions.
We take the corporate tax code cut the rate which is 35% and half and make it a flat tax you know -- Just simple.
The the little guy is gonna pay the same taxes that they got as you know for manufacturers we limit the tax altogether.
So we can compete -- get our jobs back from China and Mexico and other places and grow new jobs here in the United States.
That's a bold plan that that is gonna get jobs going here in this country and particularly those who have been left behind in this economy and and -- the other plans -- the governor -- him around he's put together by.
Frankly a lot of Washington insiders and and folks that have been in that town for a long time and don't want fundamental change in our tax code they're the ones who put his plan together.
Before we let you go we got -- showed the Santorum NASCAR.
Let's take a look at this photo outrage that looks pretty spiffy.
It is pretty -- we're very excited we were opened obviously yesterday for Korea.
A a fun time I will tell you atop the driver Tony Raines on Saturday -- and told him that -- you start at the back of the pack in the 21 row -- said.
Well let's used to -- -- -- Let's use the Santorum strategy hang back let the other other cars in front didn't get it wrecks and -- drop out of the race and then move up at the not that's hopefully they that's -- with a pattern villiers we'll see that happens today senator good to get some sleep thanks so much for joining us this morning good luck.
