Tonight he does not get any hotter than this and we do not mean that sizzling July whether we're talking about the red hot rumors that former sector -- state Condoleezza Rice could be the GOP vice presidential -- The speculation not reaching a fever pitch after the Drudge Report report -- the Secretary Rice is a new front runner.
That is despite rice going on the record -- us that she just doesn't want the job so has vice president rice in real possibility.
Or is -- Washington giddy with rumors former presidential candidate senator Fred Thompson joins us -- credit choice said.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And and you know she's an outstanding person everybody knows there.
But one person's opinion don't -- his sentence don't make any sense from Romney's side to make any sense from her side.
I don't think Romney wants to -- in the next few months talking about the bush administration's policies with regard to around.
Or a North Korea.
Or anything else at Dixon poll result -- you know.
I don't think she wants to get down into the mud.
In in the political arena she said time and time again she's a policy person she's never run for any thing.
Perry's campaign is getting dirty your by the minute.
I think that -- don't wanna be used to attack Barack Obama which is what the vice president's role in large part.
Nominee would be.
I think she would be attacked from the so called black leadership who determine in this country what's proper for.
But politicians to do -- not move.
As a traitor and she knows all this and I think.
I don't think that she wants to do better spent her life that way I don't know I'm just guess and but.
It pretty if -- -- -- obvious no foreign policy experience.
She does what they think it's good form posse or not she has a rich portfolio foreign policy experience.
I -- -- -- in the Bush Administration which is very controversial but the Bush Administration also has.
Many people who are strong advocates four what was done.
She's a woman people get -- energized -- thought of a woman on the ticket that has -- she's African American made peel off some votes from President Obama.
Sat may help -- say that they don't want that the of people don't be talking about the Bush Administration.
I don't think governor Romney wants to talk about Romney care I think -- -- rather have her when talking about Condoleezza Rice may be and and Iraq then probably talking about Romney care.
I know -- what what what does Obama don't talk about that's the question you're seeing right now the president has -- all the problems we've gotten everything is going on in the world.
Playing the small -- small ball he can possibly play is to win Mitt Romney left a job years ago and went to do something else.
And whether or not some companies outsource some jobs and and that sort of thing.
That's all they would be talking about there will be talking about if you if you criticize Obama with regard as Pozen guard around the fact they're getting nuclear weaponry.
They talk about how much progress did you -- under the Bush Administration content.
They talk about North Korea -- the same thing would apply.
It's of course not a question what Ron -- was -- -- question of what Obama is would would be talking about and want to come -- Romney is not normal lives as election because of any lack of foreign policy experience.
So who would be an -- sort of the universe.
Of choices they think would be Smart political choice I don't know.
There's several or several would be good but.
I think Hague with overall attributes -- Condoleezza Rice as him not to mention the fact that you know she's pro choice and which would burn a lot of people although I think -- based on federalism more than anything else not quite as bad as soon as moderate which I'm sure what that means but well I think she is concerned about the federal government you know dictating in that area.
Still -- you know she.
-- with all of the the attributes it that she has.
I think that -- she understands basically water role would be and what should be required to do and the swings in the errors that would come her way.
For a job that in some respects depending on the president might be lesser.
Than the one that she had.
Let me talk about something you wrote about the Electoral College yeah not jump to the headline news he explained that.
Said death under a lot of what he wrote crackling from -- governor -- can win the the overall vote but President Obama would win the electoral -- Trojan horses surprise yeah.
I'm I'm concerned about it it's this month nightmare scenario of of the week.
A Psycho Fred Thompson's America which.
Spout off on these things from time to time and I'm not a political science -- -- -- they want since I was in college but I do realize.
Cannot take away this.
-- Obama's gonna have a hard time getting the popular vote.
Tells us that an incumbent president's approval rating in march of the year the election is pretty much shorter ones -- -- election but.
If he's under 50% is in trouble Obama visited 46%.
And and march he's at 47.
I think but he's in that neighborhood is going to lose the popular vote.
But on who we realize that you know that's not what counts.
There -- eight to ten states where the whole game exploit all the rest of the states are either strong -- or strong blue state nobody pays any attention to him.
All of them all the money all the power of the presidency.
All of the deals can be -- in certain cities in certain places and and and and a handful of states.
That I think gives.
An incumbent president of the advantage that it feels good that if it's good news.
-- -- is game plan he's spending in those swing states now an unbelievable.
Amount of money.
Attacking Mitt Romney he's trying to kill him and cradle before you get -- filipina.
I'm -- -- would have -- -- son in the second Canada and the RC but I below researcher at -- -- -- some research.
Virginia Indiana Ohio Colorado Iowa Missouri New Hampshire.
And Wisconsin all swing states need more law and -- Florida and Florida.
All under fan of his -- -- some -- -- some analysts at -- well not tell you why all under the national.
Those states these are all swing states with unemployment rates below the national level so well ever -- the economy is so important.
I wonder if these states fiber to the fact that that.
They seem to be in a better economic position and those other state.
-- he's -- he's targeting those states spending like -- say it do a ton of money trying to.
Undermine although -- on his credit good for in his legs under him get to spend the money that he's raising -- -- -- -- Obama right now but it might not.
It might not matter.
His strategy is to.
Divide the country and undermined and and and attack.
Romney -- -- 36 fair politics.
No no it's -- not but I'm not saying it's dirty illness Hussein and it's it's it's realistic.
And he's got a policy for every group and he's going after that the blacks and Hispanics.
The the single women students.
Public sector employees and if you notice -- -- just about every one of those groups he's had a recent.
Policy conversion or -- recent initiative.
And he knows what's going on his campaign knows what's going on in each of those states and -- buttons to push and that concerns me I'm just saying if you're -- -- state.
-- your for Romney about a double down and keep it red and if you're in one of these swing states you better more -- night.
He is there's something in in -- of New York.
Concerns -- something governor Romney could do to reverse that trend change -- concerned well.
I think that that -- may be.
He's he's gonna do something a little bolder little more dramatic than like what he's doing.
Well like putting some some meet on the bones and he's been -- out there explain why.
Where the freest most successful nation in the history of the world explaining why free enterprise is a good thing has brought more freedom and prosperity even to the poor.
Then in the nation in the in the not a only in the world but in the history.
Of the world -- Obama is appealing 22 people who -- this nation the great uniter is now spending all his time.
Trying to divide the time -- to make in the past.
Bigger why is this policy is are -- far she's he's concentrating on things like.
And soaking the rich and the Buffett rule.
And things of that nature does she do to soak the rich which would pay if somebody figured it out for four days -- government spending.
So it's all and -- you'll -- the lowest common denominator it's an appeal from someone who supposedly is the darling of the intellectuals.
He's appealing to ignorance.
He's appealing to passion.
This whole outsourcing business on though that it's difficult to run and campaign and talk about something like that.
But you know it's clearly something that.
Some whose time has come most companies have to do it.
-- there investors demand that their content consumers.
Who look for cheaper product demand it and if you wanna look familiar -- sources in the country look at Obama's council of economic advisors.
So it's really small ball divisive ball that the president is playing.
And he's got a call the president -- -- that he's got to do in the general election.
Some of the things that he did against his primary opponents.
That worked senate thank you -- -- I.
