That there Mitt Romney firing back the president right now and his and claiming that Bain Capital the company that Romney used to head up kill jobs in America.
Here is part of that Romney response.
Mitt Romney's private sector leadership team stepped.
Building a dream with over 6000 employees today that it wasn't -- company like -- dynamic -- -- when they have a lot.
American workers and a small town.
Proving that anything is possible.
So we it is game on serve and return and Romney now on the battleground state of -- today saying that the president -- his economic record should not throw.
Stones a few moments ago I talk of the Republican governor out of Louisiana's Bobby Jindal now or Romney supporter.
Governor Bobby Jindal good morning to you in Baton Rouge is good to have you back in our program here in America's Newsroom.
Or what do you think of the jointly owned -- -- -- you're welcome what do you think of the short clip we just played there.
What appears to be the Romney team in their response it the hits on Bain Capital.
What two things one up thinking goes to it two themes of this campaign won a contrast fact that pres Obama hasn't run.
Anything before he is elected present United States never ran us.
State they ran a business never ran a lemonade stand this jobs too important for on the job training in contrast Mitt Romney's been a successful governor a successful businessman he's got the executive experience.
But it also goes to a second point.
President Romney have a president Obama simply cannot -- on his record the reality is 23 million Americans unemployed underemployed.
Simply -- left the workforce.
Pres Obama -- not ask the American people are you better off than you were four years ago he's gonna have to savagely attack Mitt Romney we've seen the start of that this week.
And now you're seeing Mitt Romney respond which I think is a very good thing there are -- Public kids who say they they weren't quite sure that Mitt Romney and his team were prepared for.
I guess the onslaught against Spain and this goes back covers political history for the past eighteen years but were you one of them was concerned about that.
Like this is nothing new Ted Kennedy is try this who have tried in the Republican primaries.
The reality is over twenty weeks left in this campaign I think every week you're gonna see a new attack out of the Obama White House.
Simply because he can't run on his record you know pres Obama promised several things he promised he cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term not gonna happen for years of trillion dollar plus deficits and early promise if we passed a stimulus unemployment would be below 8%.
Not gonna happen 39 months -- plus a 8% plus unemployment he promised he would reform the entitlement programs have a plan to save.
Social security and Medicare -- not gonna happen he promised.
If we passed obamacare he would reduce health care insurance premiums when he 500 dollars for the average American family again not gonna happen premature going up not down you've got broken promise after broken promise so you know last week you wouldn't would admit Ronnie do -- high school this week it's.
Bain Capital next week who knows maybe -- attack something else.
The reality as you -- Obama is gonna have to distorted and that's the way politics works but but again I think the last time we -- -- Rick Perry guy.
And absolutely and and now you talk as if you're firmly in Mitt Romney's camp and you didn't mention to be a possibility on his ticket but I did do you -- do you believe as a VP.
-- this isn't about his VP it's about the vision going forward for America I'm firmly in the Mitt Romney camp because we got two choices in this election it's not about.
-- it's not a high schools are about -- it's about the future of America pres Obama is forty increase the federal government to 24% of our economy you're heading towards the European socialist type governments we -- Greece and other countries that are are nearing bankruptcy you contrast that would Mitt Romney offering of a limited role for the federal government a reinvigorated private sector economy this election is really not about -- TV -- it's not about who looks best on TV.
It's not two very different visions for America.
I'm supporting Mitt Romney because this is about preserving the American dream for our children pres obamas had four years were not better off than we were four years ago.
We can't afford another trillion dollars of debt we can't afford another four years of.
President Obama on that last point -- -- when it comes a debt the last question last point I have reviewed here he's an Iowa today Mitt Romney is talking about debt talking about spending how powerful of an argument.
Can he make when contrasting his record with president Obama's.
Well look I think he can show in Massachusetts when he was governor the unemployment rate was below the national average he can show that per capita income grew faster than.
The national average he can also provide his detailed plans that shows he wants to return discretionary spending back to that the -- Obama levels he also wants to cap government the federal government spending it -- percent.
He's got a very -- plan.
Pres Obama's got four years or broken promises we have seen what present what four years of pres Obama means it means spending money we can afford Mitt Romney's -- -- very detailed plan to shrink government.
And grow the private sector and all these polls are so close I assume you agree with the polls this nation is split 5050.
And it will be very tight come November governor thank you for your -- -- and thank you very much at Bobby Jindal in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
