-- joining me now with reaction former Alaska governor Fox News contributor Sarah Palin.
That is so transparent.
I mean he gave an honest answer they flipped out but does this is -- this is the crux of their campaign as an.
He had doggone it -- it was that a shame to see -- kind of backed down from what his answer was which was so candid shot he would -- antithesis of the typical politician.
Because he didn't do this before he spewed his cancer.
To David Gregory there when he.
-- howls of pain along with every other American who understands that Obama doesn't understand the free market system and he will.
Condemn private equity because he doesn't understand the benefits of private equity in that -- job creation.
So it was a shame that dubbed.
-- back down a little bit from that but.
I think we saw what his -- means word.
He articulated it you know it's funny because the president gives his press conference today.
And almost word for word he gives Cory Booker is second answer the centerpiece of his campaign he can -- -- The economy watch this with President Obama today.
And the reason this is relevant to the campaign is because.
My opponent governor Romney his -- calling card for why he thinks he should be president.
This is business experience -- not going -- they're touting his experience in Massachusetts.
He's saying -- business -- I'm not fix it and this is his business.
And when your president as opposed to the head of a private -- reform firm.
-- you do your job is not simply to maximize profits.
Your job is to figure out how everybody in the country has a fair shot.
A Cory Booker.
-- centerpiece of his campaign then and then the president says his main calling card.
So obviously this is their big campaign strategy right.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Now as much but it -- and didn't Mitt Romney can't be surprised at these attacks or at these questions about his.
Private sector experience because.
He does tell dad asked the criteria to be net in order to lead the country needs to be a big a business background and that's where Romney comes from -- -- forcefully and candidly.
And proudly defend his record if he does not then Obama and his -- gets his lap dogs in the media.
Will obviously put him in a very -- life so Romney and his advisors really need to come out forcefully in defending the free market.
Defending that record at -- and standing strong on one's record that's white.
We want to take that off the table we don't -- off the table in terms of discussion.
And -- in this campaign.
Well I wanna I wanna get you on that but this is a very interesting development but before we do -- such -- -- you say that because the Romney campaign.
Has come out with a net now was only Cory Booker.
They -- was Harold Ford junior.
Steve -- another one and so these Romney campaign put together an and it's called them the big -- in backfire.
And let's play for it.
Have you had enough of president Obama's -- and free enterprise.
His own key supporters.
Democrat mayor Cory broker and futures.
I have to just 600 per -- level I'm not -- you can -- Former congressman Harold Ford junior a Democrat from Tennessee.
And equities not a bad thing not affect private equity is a good thing and the many many instances.
Former Obama's economic advisor and auto czar Steven Rattner.
A leading Democrat and I don't think there's anything paying capital that they need to be embarrassed about -- -- the totality of Intel.
Record because -- -- -- you don't want to support.
Businesses to grow businesses even Obama's own supporters have happen.
It's nauseating the American public enough is enough.
The big paying backfire what do you what do you think of that -- Well those -- some beautiful messages in there because they are based on time tested truths about the what the free market can provide in terms of job creation.
Now a community organizer like Barack Obama though has absolutely no idea.
Except how to spend other people's money and re distribute other people's money in order to quote -- quote create jobs.
And yet his surrogates there comes from in many respects the private sector in each one of those individuals does have a lot of private sector experience unlike.
-- leader Barack Obama so -- surrogates in speaking truth about private equity about the -- free market.
I was a pretty brilliant -- piece of advertisement there that was put together.
Let me ask you that she said nothing should be off the table when it comes to the vetting of the president.
And the issue of Reverend Wright came out again this week when it was we discovered that Reverend Wright in fact was offered money he claims -- for his silence in 2008.
And that President Obama had a -- meeting with him urging him to be quiet.
And you know I and then of course good there was this pact that was -- perhaps.
Run these ads bringing up the Reverend Wright issue.
We talked about it on this program we -- President Obama in his own words from -- audio book dreams from my father.
And there but many people to say that should be off limits that should be a part of the campaign now I'd argue.
Issue 12 and three is the economy for five and six is national security.
As the president's failed record did not necessarily not order.
But this is relevant you thought so in 2008 do you think it's relevant these issues today.
I do and I thought so in 2008 and that's why I went rogue if you will and disagreed with some of John McCain's advisors.
I'm -- -- said no a lot of these issues like past associations.
And Reverend Wright and bill -- and those that helped shape Obama's world -- needed to be off the table and not discussed I disagreed and I disagree now.
Barack Obama back in 2008 was an empty vessel the public did not know what -- who feel -- vessel in order to create what has become.
I'm not very I think confused and mission and vision -- leader for our country well now it's not too late to change course.
And in this next -- around understand what has filled up that vessel who are these people who are the radicals that.
Marxist professors that he said he'd like -- he would hang out with and some of his friends and associations and and even what has passed voting record represents how that filled up that vessel and has led to this very confused.
I'm country and so many Arab respects.
I -- I wanna I wanna ask you -- as we get back especially in light of the war on women.
How sharp is saying a war on blacks Howard Dean saying Republicans don't like Latinos the war on the poor class warfare.
-- to get back to this this point because is that Smart or wise for Republicans to take any issue off the table.
When it's clear that the Democrats -- gone back to 1960 fives will continue Governor Palin and also coming.
