WT you know a former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin governor it does seem that the president has decided to make this campaign about taxes.
We're gonna have two -- -- -- back to back largest tax increases in American history with -- -- followed by the expiration of the bush tax cuts for.
A million small businesses in the country I talked to governor Romney at my radio show today had some very harsh words for the president here's -- he said.
It's unfortunate that we have a president who was really never had any each branch of the private sector.
There's never worked in the small business server -- large business to understand what it takes to create jobs virtually everything the president has -- shot.
Has made it harder for small businesses to open their divorce and are more people.
That's true all of obamacare.
-- tax policies.
The fact that -- increased regulations by threefold that that the -- -- regulations he's put in place or.
The prior president for policy people -- -- -- the opposite of what America made it.
And and those people that are wondering where they want to reelect him couldn't stop and say there -- things got better America has anything.
Gotten better in America by virtue of this president's policies dancers.
-- -- -- -- How does the president make the case that he's made the economy better -- that patent -- make that case Kenny.
What does he pointed.
He can make it taste just by making things apps on but the numbers speak for themselves and LS USA.
Could it again American middle class they have seen this decimation of their network by 40% and glad that his strategy -- most brilliant.
Continents and then in the beltway who are strategizing with him have decided to make.
-- campaign about taxes.
That's an easy one for -- in fiscal conservatives who understand that we're taxed enough already.
And growing government is not the answer to anything in fact growing government is the problem.
Barack Obama is the leader of what the problem is all about -- growing government but look at.
-- look at how bad things are governor I mean unemployment the African American community is all 14% over 11% of the Hispanic community.
Youth African American employment unemployment 50%.
You we have a downgrade the first time in American history federal spending a GDP.
Is the highest since World War II the highest homeownership now is the lowest since 1965.
Government dependency the highest now in American history and fewer people paying taxes than we've ever had in history.
So it seems that on every measure in five trillion in debt the president can't run on that.
So the question is what would wouldn't be the best message for governor Romney to bring out.
To say I will do a BC and.
He's already got the right message and that is that the free market works best and the constitution is -- to find -- to get us towards at a more perfect union.
As opposed to Barack Obama's idea of growing government taking and we -- freedoms and and -- -- that entrepreneurial spirit that built America so we have the right message it's just.
Governor Romney being very very courageous and bold and passionate about that message again he's got to get through that filter of the media which is going to be quite difficult because 90% of the media -- so far left that.
They are so clean -- a lap dog for Barack Obama so.
Romney's EPS before that he doesn't want to have the -- -- on fire -- -- a lot of his base supporters independence course and Weil why our hair on fire and then.
-- mind is how important it is that we get engaged in this presidential election because it is.
The election of our life time.
And we saw in the twenty and the electoral victory and we saw in the Wisconsin recall big -- where -- right.
Was victorious -- -- -- the independence of the Tea Party patriots need to be energized and get out to vote otherwise.
And their rights is not going to be able to get in here into the White House and reversing that course that Barack Obama has put us on towards bankruptcy and insolvency.
Our last question governor and then four years ago you were selected.
And you know you going to be selected you to tell me until what four days until you -- you didn't know you even be -- -- for days prior which is a pretty amazing story.
The names I hear most often are Portman in Ohio rubio in Florida and Paul Ryan -- will be on this program tomorrow night from Wisconsin good choices.
-- good choices.
They are and I think that sad governor Romney will probably leave.
Play it safe relatively speaking in terms of finding someone who is a known commodity so that the media doesn't do what.
The media did to me and making things up and kind of scratching somebody's reputation and record.
In the -- to distract from what -- election really was supposed to be about itself.
Those are good names or other great names out there on being battered brown and you know I look forward to seeing.
Who that whiny kids who can assist governor Romney in movie.
Forward all right as we get closer will love will bring him back governor will ask you what advice you have for that person.
As you lived through that whirlwind send.
We appreciate you may want us.
