Every week and viewers.
Vote for your choice on line in our Friday lightning round Poland this week vice president predictions one with 46%.
The vote the GSA spending scandal.
Was a close second with 44 presents -- we're gonna -- would go discuss those two right now the veep picks we know that Rick -- out of of course you can still sticking around for.
Big ideas in Tampa.
But Romney's on his own now and he can focus on a -- pick.
We got probably a dozen or more candidates and -- -- of -- -- the screen with all that lets us.
Ask you guys to choose your top for a start with you Steve yeah I've got the short -- this is an accident it's -- it's Marta rubio Paul.
Ryan Mitch Daniels and Rob Portman and they each bring different qualities Marco Rubio is very eloquently you give speeches.
Like probably nobody else in the Republican Party Paul Ryan is the -- guy Mitch Daniels implemented these ideas he's been a successful governor 70% approval rating.
And Rob Portman is sort of the safe -- he's he's a guy who would help and Ohio.
Very Smart and conservative chuck your picks well I had the same top to -- -- Rubio and Ryan that you -- very wide right well I knew I couldn't cross -- Marco Rubio would add a whole lot including being from swing state actually all four that I -- are from swing states.
And you know -- this hold women gender gap thing.
Proves to be.
Something Romney wants to try to deal with Kelly I'll -- -- -- would help Bob McDonnell is there.
Popular governor of Virginia is also from the -- -- -- with help from me with evangelicals who wants to shore zone face that would Charles.
I want to commend Steve on his incredible -- -- not only got the right for but he got him in exactly the right.
-- so you've got Seinfeld I rest on his lol so -- you got a let me just throw a couple of weaknesses and each of each of these that rubio.
It's not a ringing endorsement of Romney.
-- in fact he gets -- He wasn't my first choice he's not exactly would you say if you're running now to have -- job but nonetheless I think that Romney if there's anybody who's unsentimental.
About running campaigns and he's been a machine -- since he began I think -- look outside and if he decides he needs the state.
He needs to younger I would dynamism man who is Hispanic.
And he needs it all of those elements -- economy could be.
The rumors of rubio and you know you gotta make sure he's been vetted and -- was stories about.
Financial affairs and I have no reason to believe any -- it is true but they're gonna give it.
The full treatment assuming all of these -- -- clean I think he's clearly.
The one who brings -- most anything.
Check have to put up very quickly that you were the only one who picked a woman is the senator from New Hampshire.
A regional candidate you got Romney Massachusetts.
-- in New Hampshire and not -- and more of a gender play I just wanna point out what both these guys were wrong to put Mitch Daniels on the list.
And that is because Indiana is already -- likely Republican state number one number two Mitch Daniels the same kind of guide business he technocrat economic guy and third.
You don't put a guy on the ticket who everybody was talking about as a substitute for you for the top spot at one point that's true of factually.
Three of the four people -- lists or Charles -- we get we have on this -- slightly -- -- -- striking slowly let's move on to GSA schedule this has all look the markings of a drip drip -- scandal hearings Begin on Monday Charles.
It's anything I think it actually is gonna hurt the administration even though it aren't anything to do with the administration itself for this one.
To chronic issue but the Democrats have learned decades ago to stop using the word.
Expand and the user would invest so -- next Sunday to hear that the president speaking about investing.
Ask him I think -- investing in clowns who took bikes tuxedos and mind readers and ask if America wants to invest in that.
On that subject Fox News has gotten a hold of an email was written on July 8 2011 from a GSE deputy administrator Susan -- to Bob Peck and a host of other.
Of her underlings at the agency.
A clown suit bikes tuxedos in mind reader don't really lend themselves to a claim of a substantive conference she writes shortly after she's discovered this thing it's been under investigation.
By the inspector general in addition a British speaks of a letter of reprimand which they were.
Crafting to Jeff nearly did you say regional administrator now on leave it for starters she says.
The -- letter of reprimand was not even a slap on the wrist and she encourages them to pay attention to how the Washington Post would cover this if it were to become.
What should go to.
What bill paying attention to the Washington Post but I would just add you know this that this is and picturesque scandal which means it's very tough.
The administration knock -- got great visuals clown suits hotels and why and stuff.
And a sixteen dollar muffins conference at the Justice Department remember that turned out to be phoning this one seems to be real and I think -- -- -- It's -- fifteen seconds is this the tip of the iceberg but it's not a big deal with in terms of the money but it's a big deal in terms of principles and -- -- contempt for them to stand.
With which so many bureaucrats in Washington treat taxpayers to treat their money there's one way to reduce government waste.
-- -- reduce government were waste reduce the size of government.
Thank you panel --
