I walked out after the Iowa caucus -- that game on.
And a lot of folks are gonna write.
-- is even at the White House game over.
But this game -- long long long way from old.
Big shake up on the trail Rick santorum's departure from this presidential race happening Gettysburg PA and that's not to -- Newt Gingrich though in the least in fact he joins me live and the state of Delaware today good morning mr.
Money -- -- to do it yeah and you as well thank you for coming back is -- in a statement yesterday at -- the last conservative standing.
If that's what you believe how does that make Mitt Romney.
Well that's I think in terms of the long loses.
Commitment the conservative values.
Having helped balance the federal budget for four years in a row.
Having helped pass welfare reform is pretty clear that my record is one of the consistent approach to both American and socialism.
And innovation and bold solutions so.
I decided to stay in the race we've had over 3500 people.
Go to new dot org donate money since 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon and I think -- -- -- signal they want somebody.
Who's an articulate aggressive conservative to stay in the race.
And to make the case that we need to have very dramatic solutions.
Given the size of our problems in Washington.
-- just never got back that the question -- you wouldn't be specific what what what again does that make Mitt Romney then if you the last conservative step back I think I think -- Nate I think I think Romney certainly much more conservative than Barack Obama.
But I think on issues like.
The American energy independence plan that I have outlined to get gasoline below 250 gallon and to eliminate our require our -- the Middle East.
The idea of creating a debt repayment plan we're all royalties -- -- from oil and gas you know and it paying down the national debt.
The concept of a personal Social Security savings account that would allow every young person to have an opportunity as they do -- -- To have control of their own savings.
To have two or three times as big a retirement as they get from the government.
They're number of places where -- -- -- stand for a boulder.
And more solutions oriented conservatism that's part of this race is all about and I think.
As we get closer to the convention we'll see we can't put together platform.
That is very effective against Barack Obama and very effective a defining Republican Party that can actually solve the country's.
-- how to get to that here in the last delegate according to my account that you won was in Puerto Rico and march 18.
Now there have been at least five primary battles.
Since then and you did not get a single delegate those five or six contests -- now what do you gain from staying in at this point do you believe.
Well first device again updated explaining these kind of ideas.
Second I believe that now the -- down essentially to the two of -- we're gonna gain delegates what we're actually getting delegates to the process of places like Louisiana.
We have consistently -- done better than.
Our vote in the primary and same thing in Washington State.
This is a very long process -- number.
In Iowa they had a preference contests in January they pick the final delegates in June.
-- this is a long process and it didn't hurt the Democrats.
To have Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama compete all the way into the end of June and it didn't frankly help the Republicans much.
To get it over with that -- last time so I don't worry customer's calendar right now perhaps there are outweigh any new ideas for perhaps as a -- for me to ask the question.
What do you want to get out of this.
A first I'd like to win as many delegates as possible.
I'm here in Delaware because I think we have a chance to win here I was in North Carolina yesterday because it would certainly gonna win delegates in North Carolina.
And I'm -- campaigning -- -- in places.
Where we believe we will pick up delegates and we'll continue to pick up delegates.
I think that that's a part of what we're going through.
I also wanted to continue to shape the debate and continue to frame -- reference here that we are a Conservative Party it's very important.
The legal into the general election committed to.
American and socialism and committed to the constitution.
To declaration of veterans I frankly agree with.
President Obama's characterization yesterday.
I just disagree with -- about who's gonna be in the minority this -- The bigger characterization is our viewers though -- -- Lyndon Johnson against Barry Goldwater which is where Stephen Hayes about that a few moments ago he agreed with that assessment.
Are you saying your battery is I think it.
Sure I guide me in this sense.
President Obama is the most radical president in American history he wants to centralize power in Washington DC he's running up enormous deficits.
He's led the weakest economy in American history.
Since the Great Depression.
And I think it's fair to say that he is far outside the mainstream -- American political life.
So I think it will be -- -- an extraordinary choice the Republican nominee whether it's governor Romney or Newt Gingrich.
Is going to be substantially more conservative.
Then is Barack Obama the gap is going to be very wide where I think the president is wrong is when you have.
High gas prices high unemployment huge deficits.
Failed programs of the federal government billions of dollars lost in various special interest gimmicks.
I think he's the one who carries the burden and my guess is he's going to end up losing -- -- marginal -- the news media but there were reports that you met with Mitt Romney in private about two weeks ago perhaps New Orleans it was can you confirm that.
Jeremy we both said publicly we talked regularly.
-- the shouldn't be any question about this.
We are both committed to defeating Barack Obama.
Were both grand parents and we both think that the future of our children and grandchildren and the future of our country.
Will be decisively affected by this election so -- they had Romney ends up earning 11144.
I will before and I suspect they'll -- -- -- and up to his surprise.
Even nominee he'd be truly we both want to beat Barack Obama in the final question -- house and I conversation and since then would he make a good president.
Yeah I think you -- -- and make such a better president Barack Obama that I will campaign Foreman he's the nominee and -- campaign from his dastardly and I think he would tell you I'd make a lot better president and Obama's.
