Get to that you know now that that Rick santorum's dropped out all eyes are on Romney and -- vice presidential pick and -- from me ask you to be is VP.
I know I -- this before -- on the time.
Chain unmitigated ever answer look.
I called emulated unaudited ever answered something you got to consider if he asked me to consider -- considerate but he had and so I'm not.
Now you just call that and it just broke a couple of hours -- you said that Romney is kind of a throwback to the 1950s.
He's a funny dude what does that I know.
This was taken out of context number one when I was saying is he he has these great aspects from the greatest generation.
He's very civil.
He's very principled very honorable.
-- as an earnest way about him like like leaders from the fifties.
And when I say he's a funny -- -- he's got a very witty sense of humor as -- got a very quick mind.
And he's he's very quick on humor and wit.
So this is what happens and waters slice and dice your your comments -- can make that kind of an appearance what I said it was this man reminds me.
Of leaders from the greatest generation civil.
Honorable earnest I -- he's got a very fast mind and he's a really funny guy.
I cannot say I I I call them more clearer I love the -- clearly -- -- that's what I think that I think of you know I grew up watching Leave It to Beaver OK I like hey mr.
cleaver Ward -- and in he has these great attributes which -- a very nice civil nannies very earnest.
We need someone that not a straight Wally and Bieber did to -- that we need an honest mature adult and and the clock exactly and that's the -- trying to make.
I get -- a -- and it congressman let's move on this budget question because the president clearly is seeing you whether you're the vice presidential nominee or not.
Seeing you and your budget as a target and his campaign.
And one of the things he's really saying is well what your plan does is he put more of a burden increasingly on the elderly so they're gonna have to pay for more -- -- health care down around Dana Milbank says it's 700 -- -- seventy billion dollars.
Of new fees and and and burdens on the pour it adds up to trillions over time.
And that's the.
Look worries to be verbal tantrums from the president.
This is just like the speech he gave last year.
What the president basically decide to do instead of offering solutions of his own to prevent a debt crisis wait for the Republicans -- their solutions that attack up.
I think he's decided rather than run on his record which he can't distort powers.
And speak to us us as Americans and divisive ways to distract and and this distort the country distract them from the election.
Look here's what happens -- if we have a -- crisis something that the president's policies bring us toward.
People who need government the most people who are poor and elderly they're the -- you get hurt the first in the worst if we have a debt crisis.
By getting our fiscal house in order we prevent a crisis from happening so that we can protect those who need government the most with respect to the -- And Obama's policies on working we have the highest poverty rates we've had in a generation one in six Americans are in poverty today.
These policies are making it worse.
So why should we keep throwing money at failed programs what were saying.
Is let's reform these programs to get people off of -- for him back to work.
Let's get economic growth -- so we can actually having a growing economy and job creation and economic opportunity to the people never seen it before.
We want to take those successful ideas we use in the late nineties for welfare.
And and put those in place for the other welfare programs.
To get people on the lives of self sufficiency.
We want to attack the root causes of poverty to break the cycle of poverty.
Rather than just trying to treat the symptoms and make it easier to live by which I practiced with the practical implications of the -- And -- congressman what it was clearly happening in this in this larger debate but it's not even really a debate right because other than you and a few other serious people on Capitol Hill.
No one's even having the substantive debate in comes the politics of division.
And demonization -- so the president has a vision.
For his biting I came out his budget -- and that house would support it but it came out -- his budget.
-- and I think now Mitt Romney is going to be in -- position of defense unless he goes on the offense right because he's going to be portrayed as.
Is the rich guy and all the way like one of -- -- out of -- she doesn't know what regular people are going through.
You give him advice I'm sure you would like to give me advice on a daily basis what's the one piece of advice you would give him in this current climate that you know the president is operating.
I think he's doing it if if if you listen a written -- -- speech in an Appleton Wisconsin.
Or his his speech the election night in Milwaukee Wisconsin it was perfect.
It said of the country.
We're going to the go to the country and -- -- make clear affirming choice.
Do you want Barack Obama's government centered society a nation on the path to debt and declined forty -- the American idea you want the opportunity society do you want growth you an opportunity.
This is the choice that we're going to -- -- country we're at least -- the country the choice of picking which path they want America to go on because this election we will be choosing a path.
And the question is do we do more of the same do we go to the president's path and a decline -- to reclaim the American idea back to prosperity and that is what Mitt Romney's offering the country.
And congressman -- surprised that Rick Santorum didn't pledge that he led.
I support Mitt Romney on the campaign trail and begin campaigning but I just heard about this I didn't hear what he's setting Gettysburg and my guess is he's probably talking about his own campaign and that he'll have plenty of time later on for supporting and -- around the nominee but right now I think he did the statesman like thing he should be proud of the campaign.
We're praying for his daughter we -- -- I'm doing that.
And -- and I think.
-- -- -- has -- -- today and I think he didn't -- probably my guess is he just wanna talk about his own family's own campaign -- be plenty of time for railing around our nominee I can't.
