-- in the meantime we're gonna talk a little bit about the Tea Party you know the Romney Ryan ticket wins November.
It will put it Tea Party favorite just a heartbeat away from the Oval Office some of the big questions were talking about today.
Is what the role of the Tea Party movement will be playing twelve saw what happens when he ten.
-- B is the author of hostile takeover resisting centralized government stranglehold on America he's also.
The president and CEO our freedom works so mad you know Paul Ryan relatively well you guys -- met about twenty years ago on Capitol Hill.
-- if we work together as associates on the House Budget Committee when John case a twister first getting his start you know I can personally.
Yes he's he's exactly what you see on the stage she's easy going.
He's thoughtful he's a bit of a wonk but he's passionate about these issues and he's been willing to talk about things as a legislator.
That that a lot of thought politicians haven't been willing to touch and I think that's why.
Tea Party years and activist people to care about the size -- government are only attracted to them.
Yeah let's talk a little bit more about that and we understand of course of the Tea Party is not like the Republican Party it's more of a grassroots movement in your what is voices from that movement -- But how is the Romney Ryan ticket resonating now and how maybe has -- changing up from one week to another.
How sun that are part of this movement.
And view the Republican ticket this time around.
I was under estimating the impact of choosing the right vice presidential candidate.
Would have for the Romney ticket but the energy since Saturday morning.
Has been quite astounding and you sought on the -- I'm seeing it through our social networks people are excited about the idea.
And we're gonna have an honest debate between the principles of limited government on the Republican ticket particularly from Paul Ryan.
And the big government policies of Barack Obama.
Near the near times taking a look at this today this is the way to New York Times described.
At Tea Party lawmakers are calling and stubborn barbarians at the gate.
That are refusing to compromise and spending tax is -- or social policy that's in New York Times now.
Paul Ryan -- -- has been known to compromise to talk to folks across the -- he voted for the bank bailout he's been in Washington for a long time.
I -- -- some good column an insider being that he's been there for so long so so why is the Tea Party movement again.
Identify with some -- Paul Ryan.
Well we've definitely had our differences and then certainly freedom works fought with Paul on a number of these these votes that you've already mentions.
But it's that principle it's that willingness to actually tackle the elephant in the room which is sixteen trillion dollars in debts.
In entitlement system that is not going to be there for our kids and grandkids.
And a willingness to actually put a balanced budget on the table something that Harry Reid and the Democrats have failed to do for over three years that's what.
Paul Ryan and Tea -- years that's what connects us.
Assembly you disagree with him and some points that you respect him.
As well and that seems to be a little bit of -- take -- be seen over the last couple days.
I'd like to talk a little bit about just the election overall you know in 2008 the slogan for the president was hope and change.
And 2000 intended Tea Party really defines.
A lot of the conversation as well.
And you can almost with the Tea Party as I don't know slow dinner or something like that when you think about -- -- -- ten.
I campaign what I think 2012 is all about and when you think about how to define the Republican slogan if you well.
You know what would -- status.
You know I really think that in -- twelve the same issues that animated the Tea Party in 2010.
You heard Paul Ryan just said -- the government is spending too much money it doesn't have the government is involved in too many things like our health care.
These are still the issues and not not only enemy Tea -- -- but the very senator.
Of the American -- electorate and if you look at states like Florida.
Ohio Wisconsin Pennsylvania.
This overall battle grounds that the Tea Party won in 2010.
Probably going to decide who is president and who controls the senate and -- -- twelve.
As a real quick question for unite unite talks in the past is -- your very active here on these congressional races and -- suggests that.
I was in these primaries are putting out candidates that won't win in the general election.
I've never won what do you think about that and number two will you now jam more into this general election for the president.
I and become more active for the presidency as well as some of these local races.
Also the fights further who's going to be the Republican candidate are over -- -- -- today.
So we immediately shift all of our firepower all of our focus.
On who is going to control the senate.
My sense is that we're not gonna have any of these -- fires that we had in 2010.
In states like Delaware.
Because the Tea Party got very active very early.
And got behind candidates with the skills and talents and the principles.
That will get them elected in November.
And -- and Matt nice to have you with this it today again we appreciate it looked forward to checking in with the over the next couple weeks.
Appreciate it you know --
