-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Very very good.
Well the former senator from Pennsylvania -- fate may lie in the hands of voters in his home state.
Rick Santorum has insisted he is determined to carry on.
Despite the growing assumption that Mitt Romney will be the party nominee so -- you're not talk politics radio show hosts Leslie Marshall.
And Mark Davis thank you for joining us.
By the way to the morning the polls now in santorum's home state show him losing possibly others put -- slightly up.
His three year old daughter is sick his wife is complaining he's never home and the pressure is increasing from the GOP.
For him to get out of Romney's way do you -- -- -- exiting.
I not know how into -- I as as what a sorry I did I Lesley -- first because that's -- what.
Let the ladies first -- -- that they -- they they basically I don't see an exiting right away that we after numbered 2000 innate.
I mean you know we had a clash the Democrats between our current president and and and now our current secretary of state.
You know Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton until almost the end of June.
And you know we're just at the beginning of April so you know it it still is enough time for him to get out eventually he will get out will -- -- out about as a Democrat I say.
Well -- you -- guys keep playing and drag this not love -- and mark there's the Raleigh.
It was funny because because here's the thing and -- -- -- by Leslie's take because I don't think that that she believes that Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton were ill served by a long honest sharp elbows spike.
And I think that all these calls for Republicans all we gotta get behind -- we gotta do it now we got to do it by may first no we don't know if that is the inevitable fate.
As a -- guy I'm here to tell you I think the Romney candidacy will be better than his harshest critics suggest but in the meantime before we get to 1144.
Fight on and if Pennsylvania gives reason for continued fight.
If our own primary here in Texas which is still like the twenty ninth -- may -- -- the story line then let the story line.
-- changed why fear that.
Politically if -- does bow wow what would you think his future might be vice president or 2016.
Well you know I I wouldn't I wouldn't rule out when he sixteen candidate I -- my -- is that he's not going to be the BP on the ticket.
All it got quite quite frankly I mean right now I think -- -- he's just saying who is going to appeal to women because that's certainly that is the audience that we're seeing a lot of -- voters that have a lot of power.
But what when it when it comes to.
You know -- and I've always said this in the eleventh hour Democrats do it on the left Republicans do it on the right.
Most people will get behind that guy so even those conservatives.
Who view Romney is more of a moderate -- not a true conservative.
Compared to Santorum or Gingrich.
They will get behind him eventually just like I Hillary gal did get behind president Barack Obama and the eleven mark Leslie mention that women is the perfect.
Okay they're just for ten seconds that that is the perfect analogy because all the embittered Hillary people realize well Obama's our guy.
Let's get behind -- ninety some percent of all Republicans will do exactly the same thing.
The new people the Santorum people even some of the Ron Paul people if Mitt Romney is the only way to end this presidency there will be enthusiast I'm sorry you wanted to.
-- that's the that's fine no please thank you for making your point the the question is about at the independent women.
Who were going Romney's way for a while but now the polls show they're leaning toward Obama.
Well as most women are gonna vote Democrat I mean 5545.
-- -- -- -- whatever that might.
It is -- Republican nominee's job and all the candidates job and maybe some of the pundits jobs.
To get through the ridiculous mess of this war on women that nonsense this is a war of principle.
If some of it involves Planned Parenthood and abortion rights and forcing companies offer contraception so BF.
It is only the bitterest cynicism that portrays that as a war on women conservative women.
Leslie about the economy and the latest numbers on job creation were a disappointment.
The Republicans -- clearly.
Tried to capitalize on that saying his policies have failed.
This is going to happen -- -- not you know I I say that at this point between now and November of Barack Obama walked on water Republicans would say that was low tide.
So right now it's you know seriously numbers are gonna go up -- -- and we have said this.
Now up forecasters are saying we're gonna look at summer we have -- -- look at this summer because before September -- economic forecasters are predicting as not only wouldn't have job growth gas prices gonna go down that's gonna help the president.
On Election Day it is not just what the numbers are as Americans -- not just about numbers all -- we are.
But you know that the masses are about feelings and honestly -- perception that is their reality how -- they perceive the economy is.
In addition to whatever their number one issue is if if for women it's if if -- health care.
A -- you know for extreme conservatives religious conservatives they might be you know abortion Roe vs.
Wade got kind of a thing.
I -- that's what's going to go push to shop but actually no they're going to be Democrats voted Democrat Republicans -- -- but Republican is the independence of the women that -- looking at in -- -- Mark Davis are you gonna get the last word here president Obama's comments about Ryan plan being social darwinism.
Trojan -- the federal.
I well I may shock the world President Obama says the Ryan budget is radical.
He is absolutely correct.
So was ending slavery so was the election of Reagan it is sad but true that it is radical.
To talk about turning the ship of state in some responsible fiscal direction.
Getting rid of a whole lot of government it's gonna make a whole lot of people freak out.
But once this radical agenda is undertaken the good news is you'll have more of your liberty.
And more of your money right talk radio show host so mark Davis and Leslie Marshall thank you both for joining us today.
Think thank you it is.
