-- it -- as the Mormon -- up cold one.
Thoughts on top of a certain billionaire Warren then to -- Welcome everybody I'm Neil Cavuto and rickety split Foster freeze is now which meant the legendary investor who Bob nearly two of its backers of the Santorum campaign.
Now some on the -- the job.
Three says it usually can out of make Mitt Romney the next present United States.
Don't -- this guys warm and friendly grant but charm fully.
Freezes impeccable timing and -- -- make much Santorum the winner not only in Iowa.
But launched one of the more improbable presidential campaigns.
In American history.
And now ready to do the same for one Mitt Romney hard to say this much is not Foster freeze -- done an interview with anyone anywhere.
Chose to make his first TV appearance since the Santorum news here with us right now because unlike -- to -- I am not so modest -- Foster good to have you thanks a -- -- caused a delight to be with you Neil thank you very inviting me when you would set a couple of days back for us when -- we -- that look you were.
You you were loyal to the party in the end of it look like Mitt Romney was going to be it.
He'd be your -- Now we years since Rick Santorum stepped out.
Do you do any of this grudgingly.
Well I'm just excited about what Rick Santorum accomplish as you mentioned it's historic how he in ninety days.
Became a very close to grabbing the nomination and what he's accomplished is ignite a whole group of people who love this country.
-- maybe not been involved before and actually are going to be very critical to help Mitt Romney win.
If if we don't die harness the energy that Rick Santorum -- created that's going to be a lot harder for -- two do what he needs to do and and in November so we're we're cheering for him and we're grateful for what Rick has contributed to our cause and it's just beginning Rick is gonna continue to fight for the values that are so important -- country and get us back to that that liberty that does so many people fought and died for how is he going to do that.
Armed if these let's see if he's not running.
Well I I think that's a lot of ways in which she can do that and right now I think he just wants arrests for awhile and recuperate Dahlia when you have a child in danger.
It -- take -- -- Nadia so I think he's gonna be glad they kind of stay home for awhile but I'm pretty convinced he's going to be participating maybe help some of these senate races and I know he's going to be -- been that the tickets and he's committed to.
He's committed to our country this race wasn't so much about Rick Santorum.
As as it was about the mission that he felt he is on to to get our country back core founding fathers intent is to be so he's gonna be a contributor.
And he's probably one of the most popular politicians in in the country -- even among Democrats because.
I was just talking to someone who is a journalist -- said actually she disagreed with a lot of his positions.
But boy does she respect him because he says what he believes -- and that's really worth something.
First off stop talking of the journalists sexually.
I didn't hear.
The senator mention Mitt Romney's name once.
Stepping out speech yesterday now that could be just.
You know it is -- is its decision no one else's -- but a lot of people quickly read into that there's still some bad blood there or he doesn't like Mitt Romney.
-- Well I think what's important is what's gonna happen for our country Rick loves this country and he's gonna do whatever it takes to replace President Obama that's the biggest threat we have and if President Obama wins again.
We're talking a single party rule for 3040 years were talking about a a couple of Supreme Court justices and -- his secretary of energy Steven Chu said we wanna have gasoline prices up to European prices and that's what age fifty or -- -- that.
So there's a lot of things that are out there a risk if if if Rick -- and participate.
And I'm pretty confident he's going to be participating and being helped today with some of the senate races and and he he just loves this country that's why got in the race so you don't see.
AM oh or vet for that -- that Romney accusing him as his running.
I CEO Mitt Romney I think is -- is to kind of keep a lot of options open there's unbelievable.
Number brilliant people out there you know as Paul Ryan Ron Johnson do you have a choice do you have a favorite -- -- well.
I I'm available.
-- -- all right.
Let's say he passes over you -- What about what about that torment of -- these other names you mentioned Ryan other names that popped up Chris Christie I'm Marco Rubio any -- -- does it.
-- they really excite me I love the the puts of have Christie and rubio is is very polished enough.
He loves this country to if you look at the candidates that are out there and actually look at the governor's ranks -- involved with a Republican governor association.
And those people that are run the states they are incredibly.
Brilliant people and I and I think there's some candidates there that.
Who should be -- -- -- for sure.
Armed did finish let any bad blood between Rick Santorum and and Mitt Romney or -- just the nature of the beast the way campaigns go.
You need to let bygones be bygones and move on that this wasn't particularly.
To to predict how would you describe.
Well I think if we were -- Christian nation Harry Truman the terror in the Bible five times before it became president says to Christian nation and in our country he said has been proven the fundamental unity between -- any democracy.
And farther Christian worldview is the -- the life should have a great big tournament so need to be windshield and we should rip off the rearview mirrors.
And so we have to look ahead is still what's best for our country and and how we're gonna move forward and -- -- forgiveness is a big part of -- Christian culture and I think that's a big part of Rick santorum's life as well.
So there are mean things said back and forth I'm sure and as you say it's part of the political process it's it's kind of nasty and fortunately.
But I think we got to move forward and we have think about our country and -- at least from my standpoint I I bear no grudges against anybody and I'm willing to help whatever I can and it Rick is sort of passed the most -- -- you know.
He's got to back off a little bit I'm sure he's gonna work hard but not as much as it has been outside all of us who are supporters that.
We have to carry the ball and and make sure his voice and -- carried on into the elections.
I don't you should bear grudges you -- -- a lot further along with your current -- -- -- on what if it have you talked sits in governor Romney yourself.
I know I talked to Tim Pawlenty answer and and Newt Gingrich gave me a call in and what an -- what did -- well he was just very gracious in congratulating.
Me on the role that I play which I think is way over here NASA career financial support and you and -- -- you -- each -- out.
He was just basically.
Really congratulating now Rick and me for an and I I must say I've gotten way too much credit there's Bob Vander plots and number passers and I don't know but I.
And it -- because Newt Gingrich would seem to be in keeping.
Which are probably conservative point of view yet you you you passed over him to go to I guess what you see Mitt Romney has the inevitable nominee right.
Yes I I I think.
I had a half our one on one with med V when he came to Jackson for fund -- this is a decent decent man I and I think guy he's he's had to.
Reversals and those positions for now it's going to be very hard for him.
Not to stick -- those positions if he's gonna.
Made a pledge to repeal Obama care if he if he goes back on that 88.
You realize that the American people are counting on him -- to do what he says and I think he well.
Our philosophers it's always a pleasure thank you very very much -- set about holding a grudge or could it could.
Dana thanks so that the American -- -- -- supreme.
The nicest guys in any business meanwhile.
