But a good thing Damon got hadn't -- before presidential candidate representative Michelle Bachmann officially endorsing her former rival console and Buckman joins us savings.
Good evening Greta good to talk to you this evening.
I want things certainly have changed so I know that dad that's no surprise that day as a candidate as a sad next phase of election gets rolled out you're gonna see every single sound -- he ever made does and something about them government around governor Romney got to answer doesn't win every single -- you're gonna -- to the other sides of tummy you're gonna look through those socialist.
Now putting and I don't -- -- support now.
Well of course I can support him -- -- two words Barack Obama.
That's our alternative we have president Barack Obama or we can have president Mitt Romney.
It is very easy for me to come forward and support Mitt Romney because we simply have to win the election.
He is our nominee this week -- side Newt Gingrich drop out of the race.
And what I've said from the very beginning Greta is that I want to be unifying voice to bring our party together at the right time I've spent a long time.
Working behind the scenes trying to dry in people from the Tea Party evangelical social conservatives.
We all have to come together everything's at -- right now is far bigger than the differences between the primary candidates.
Now it's about the country and giving that country back on the right track.
But how do you inspire the BO in the evangelicals or the Tea Party who are the people who have been very loyal to you for instance in this.
-- inspired them -- essentially it seems that I hear from you -- speaker.
Gingrich is that that that your support for a governor Ronnie as well is not as bad as the other guy.
I mean it doesn't particularly inspired like you know god is gonna change things and -- at the guys like him and go -- after him.
It's -- how inspiring is it does say he's as bad as the other guy.
Well the processor the primary makes it candidates so much stronger and of course when each one of us were running in the primaries.
We had our differences they were legitimate differences.
But now they pale in comparison.
To -- Barack Obama has done to the country for the last three and a half years.
I have full confidence in Mitt Romney's ability to be able to be our standard bearer for our party.
In more than just a Republican Party I truly believe that he will appeal and reach out to independents and disaffected Democrats.
Because after all they don't want to pay a 110%.
More -- gallon of gas that the prom be there and they want a job for their kids that are graduating from college to.
This is far more than partisan differences.
And I think they'll be very easy for all factions to -- to come together and get behind Mitt Romney he's the guy that we can trust.
To flip the economy back on track -- -- Jonathan Karl I've ABC.
And reported the dead you told him.
That governor Romney can't beat this is prior obviously prior today the governor Romney can't beat.
President Bob and it's because of the Massachusetts Health Care has something changed dissension told him that are -- Heavy -- a lot of wind out because that seems at a pretty strong statement.
It is a very strong statement when I said that to Jonathan Karl of course it was during the primary election.
And something did change in let me tell you what it is this was my major contribution to the presidential.
Candidacy of the primaries.
I've made obamacare signature issue of mine because that was -- Obama's signature issue of his presidency.
When the governor Romney began the primary process he said that he was going to issue waivers to Obama care.
And from my point of view that didn't cut it we needed full scale repeal.
Today I spoke to governor Romney.
He's -- behind -- square repeal of obamacare and nothing less that's a tremendous.
Eight advancements in the governor Romney's view on Obama care.
And I think this is exactly where the country is and she will be able to lead us to the repeal of obamacare.
We're able to win your discussions of governor Romney in anticipation the endorsement were -- able to serve extract some sort of agreements and terms of like you know what your role would be -- -- Iceland tried to like that get the Tea Party -- evangelicals -- even.
Any any role you'll have in the campaign or -- in the -- At the -- convention we're able to serve -- work out something that's and that so that your your supporters are contempt.
-- you're asking if I got something personally out of this deal I actually does not all I had I I wasn't I don't need or anything out of this.
I didn't I worse without anything because.
I get there and say why I frankly I didn't mean I -- person but we need your supporters -- -- against sending me because you limit and they they admire you wouldn't they why you and so you know you in some ways you gotta get something for them and may look -- -- -- get -- for them.
Well I think what governor Romney is giving to the country is he's standing full square behind the pro life cause.
He stands for life.
He believes in marriage between one man and one woman he stands for that and also he stands for the full repeal of obamacare we have one chance -- to get rid of Obama -- is this 2012 election.
And -- governor Romney is willing to stand behind the full scale repeal of obamacare.
That is a big -- for every one in this country because there are elements in our party first social conservatives that need obamacare repealed because it means for the first time in our country taxpayers subsidized abortions that's anathema and also it's the biggest job killer in the United States the number one reason.
Good a job -- site for not creating more jobs this is a big get for our party.
I suppose -- by the end of June those Supreme Court.
Throws out the health care and that sort of you know that's what the governor Romney is -- many of his supporters are running up but suppose that they throw that out now what are you running on bad July 1 and well Election Day.
Well that would be a wonderful advancement I hope that the Supreme Court.
Does court to declare -- obamacare unconstitutional.
Because I firmly believe it is unconstitutional.
And it's going to be and now some up for our economy to be able to turn around.
I'm fully hoping that they do that if they if they do.
-- that down there are so many issues -- -- on.
Because Obama and has taken over other parts of the economy to.
Whether it's with -- Dodd-Frank -- taking over the student loan industry there's no shortage of issues to run on and the issue that we talked about today in Portsmouth Virginia governor Romney was on energy.
And this is one of the chief areas of job growth millions of jobs can be created in.
America on energy and that's what governor Romney is committed to doing.
Testament thanks very much still -- -- a studio seven.
We well things to gain ground.
