-- -- -- that he earlier this week as Sarah Palin went on Hannity and gave her pick for vice president colonel Allen west of Florida but colonel Allen west a Mitt Romney.
Are pretty far apart on some major issues even the colonel think so.
Look I think that.
Governor Romney and and I definitely have a different vision for this country of this and that gets us away from -- despair and -- the the horrible situations you see with our economic security our energy security -- national security -- -- -- we will be able to come together as a team.
Former presidential candidate -- McCain also believes.
West is the guys or gals one on his list going why didn't you mr.
Campbell and -- -- to -- -- I've made the statement -- whereas Marco Rubio.
Representative Paul Ryan and I have been consistent saying that -- three.
Based upon how this the race is shaping up I could be excited about either one of those B&B.
And Herman -- -- I don't.
-- try to point my septa and thing of that comes up will motivate the moment -- if your cell phone -- it is Mitt Romney's got your number and he said Herman I need your help I would say let's talk.
Slammed it really isn't about how did you come to those other three now.
Simply because number one Paul -- reputation for being very good at budgets he's very good at that whole financial area which you gonna need plus he knows how to navigate the legislative process.
-- rubio because he's an exciting young 72 that everybody loves and -- -- and the other thing is you've got rubio in west both from the state of Florida that does not hurt but I just happen to think that even though as -- indicated.
He feels as if he's far apart in some ways.
From Mitt Romney governor Romney.
They can come together on some of those things that's part of the process if you select mr.
-- do you have one name off the list -- -- -- you -- say what you need someone to invigorate the party tends to add life to departed as a guy who does a lot of that he's just a couple of miles across the river right there Chris Christie.
In that no way I think that that would be proceed with all due respect to Chris Christie.
I think that the rest of the country which -- -- a lot of speak of around they'll proceed that is to north east and governors.
President and VP candidate I don't think perception last.
That would be -- good -- you mentioned earlier a couple of guys from Florida Marco Rubio against colonel west what about a third guy from Florida Jeb Bush.
I don't think so.
Because that would also create -- perception you know unfortunately.
In politics perception is the big yeah that's too soon it's just too soon -- another bush I'm just gonna say this is what I'm here -- a lot of people around the country no disrespect.
But I just think from a perception standpoint that would not be as he did look good man good lead a good manager did a great job when he was governor of water but I just think for the rest of the country.
They're not they wouldn't have evaluated what.
Not Newt Gingrich because you endorsed him for us president yes and we just have Larry sat it on the show is a professor at the University of Virginia who studied this type of thing and he said the most.
Important factor is who can step right into the role and become president so could Newt Gingrich be a good -- Newt Gingrich could step into to roll.
But I believe that that is 50% decision the -- -- 2% who's gonna bring some excitement to the ticket with all due respect I don't think would.
-- they knew would bring that.
Excitement because he has been one of the candidates because where he is right now mr.
-- governor Palin's good friend of mine asked her a couple of times hey listen we're -- conservatives are looking to get behind them -- that's going to be Barack Obama right with Rick Santorum dropping out of the race will the real conservative far right conservative.
Finally get behind Mitt Romney.
If let me give it to Leo it's the -- Governor Romney continues to clearly delineate.
The failed policies that -- but not Obama administrations and clearly is this talk about what he would do -- -- the second youth.
Is he if he adopts many of the good ideas that came out of this primary process and some of the things Iran policy at some of the things that new being -- elected to violence at the saint -- with a plan.
If -- adopt some of those ideas -- -- follows and supporters.
Could get excited about Mitt Romney and that's how he brings the party together when -- things you've spoken out against his government waste I'm sure you've seen the video of those guys from the GSA.
Out in Vegas last year limited up spending close to a million dollars now the report is apparently some of those people got.
Cash bonuses 500000.
Bucks for doing such a good job waste of money you know the -- -- strategy based upon the class warfare.
Just snippets that you -- show.
It's got to hope and change his -- and out to be you know more like waste and welfare and fear.
Fear welfare and ways this is outrageous and the American people are gonna make note that they are trying to -- and off and worst that's trying to blame the Bush Administration.
The American people know not that stupid.
And you gotta wonder if we're exposing that how much more waste is probably a whole lot more than that tip of the iceberg you got it thank you can -- let it -- by an in person that I is now its goal that's ahead.
I'll take more a little bit.
I think you'd -- yeah I --
