Set I was pandering.
He said nobody can get that nobody knows you be -- 250.
Well let me say up front of course nobody knows you get to -- but there's this thing called setting goals.
It's called it's not called pandering it's called leadership.
And I was reminded.
I was reminder when -- when governor Reagan -- -- this idea.
That call supply side economic.
If you were a Georgia -- if you would certainly know that that.
Well -- Newton LeRoy Gingrich.
Who represented that's today in congress for twenty years 1979.
And who now wants to be your presidential.
Candidate Internet and this is power play.
And guess what Internet.
We have the best to brokers in the universe we have the top brokers that have ever booked and the Internet television show.
Because we have the congressman.
Who is from the district the ninth district of Georgia.
Congressman Tom graves whose district is.
The key to unlocking Georgia is sending the six.
Delegates it's the biggest prize on Super Tuesday and congressman graves who's joining us from Washington.
Your district is right there it's stuck right into starting with the Atlanta suburbs and going up into the north west corner of the state is the key to all of -- delegates you must.
Be very proud.
-- good morning good to be with you mean tonight congressional districts amazing district very conservative very Republican.
And as you've seen the -- have been visiting the district quite a bit over the last a week and a half percent so very important.
But clearly all the district in Georgia are important all the candidates and I know a lot of delegates up for grabs -- 76 total -- via a great day for -- But they did they know what it's Super Tuesday it's a different kind of March Madness for -- all across the country and and none of these these -- and working hard and particularly in Georgia congressman have you expressed presidential preference.
I'm not endorsing candidates I believe in the grass -- so much -- want to see.
Our congressional district in and the people of Georgia to make the decision.
And then the nominee -- whomever the nominee is -- get behind them pushing real hard I believe in the grass roots and it'll select the right candidate over on it may take a while it may get settled tonight.
Who knows but ultimately.
To be the right person won't be Barack Obama later this year.
Congressman do you mind if we get a little dirty for a second.
He'd be your district and -- I'm so excited the -- And thanks very much to -- -- -- in Regina and all our bunkers because he's so Smart.
You or district essentially ties together.
These suburbs of Atlanta which is far away it's like 870%.
Of the population of the state we have.
Roll ex urban and then -- rural counties in the state.
It ties together these -- when you look at your constituents.
They are the target -- in Georgia.
In places like Gainesville.
They are number one question what do they want out of their nominee.
Well what I hear the most about is they -- to they wanted to positive vision.
Any -- but he knows the economy's bad gas prices are high.
We we get -- unemployment is terrible.
But what is our path moving for what is the vision for a nation and they want a positive vision something that builds upon our greatness as a nation.
But then looks ahead and says hey look we're gonna make it we're gonna get through this we've been through a lot of challenges over time and we have never failed because we've always empowered.
The American people.
And this time is no different so they're looking for candidates that has that vision that willingness to empower the people and not government.
And that -- but it can certainly lead us to victory in November whats -- vote share going to be tonight what are you what are you -- Georgia.
How how the votes and end up.
Yes it's hard to predict I'm not one that should predict anything that you don't tell the -- mentality it's okay you can just tell us here on the Internet it's all right.
But I will say this that.
All the candidates have support in Georgia and a and a Broadway particularly.
You know -- of -- -- from Georgia we'll have a lot of support Georgia.
But Romney has a lot of support and as well as -- form.
In in I think this is a lot about each of the candidates I think it says they all have different ideas.
That just because not only candidate -- -- -- upon means there's a lot of good candidates out there with good ideas.
The people haven't decided one over the other -- I think that's a positive.
They're sharpening each other they're preparing that nominee for November.
And -- but ultimately tonight I think you just got to perform well in Georgia.
Otherwise it could be the end of his candidacy.
For the entire nomination but the other two candidates are going to be wells and and I think all across the states have finished in Sydney got an F bomb Tomas and myself.
Congress and that was a tremendously diplomatic answer and we credit you for you you may want to think about the State Department that was very that was very good.
All right so last thing I want to move off of presidential politics just for a second.
Inside congress right now there's one big piece of business that still has to be concluded before -- -- go back to run for reelection.
And that is a transportation bill.
That has been a sticking point it's very important to your district because your district is one of most highway hungry districts in the country you guys need roads.
What's gonna happen with this transportation bill.
You know I really don't know -- I've offered a different idea -- so let's look let's let's change the course here let's have a 21 century solution to this twentieth century problem.
It's not doing the same thing the way we've always been doing it because it clearly hasn't worked.
Beyond the deficit is what.
Over trillion dollars for the fourth straight year the -- is continuing to grow.
So why don't we take this is an opportunity.
To carve out a piece of the federal government and give it back to the states I mean we have Republicans said -- -- -- -- you put us in charge.
We will empower the states I think this is the opportunity to do that and that's why I've offered.
Legislation that does that that kicks this excise tax back to the states to allow states like -- spend all their own qualities.
-- right now the way it works its yeah we're sending money to the federal government we get back a terrible return we lose 11%.
Each time this bill is passed and -- are taxpayers ultimately you're preparing for -- -- elsewhere.
India would be required to -- that the remaining amount and not on always on highways and bridges but it's only by passing.
And -- -- Let's empower the states in will fix this problem I think George is a great example of the state that has a they vision a plan for transportation.
And we haven't had an amazing opportunity with the work in Georgia.
It was just -- give it back to the state of Georgia and all the other states and let them determine their own future congress.
