And it applies to -- what -- well.
States -- an alarm went.
-- -- -- Data -- it's honored by the Republican party of Sarasota County Florida.
But did the stormy weather forced come to change his convention plans.
Griff Jenkins caught up with -- Sarasota.
First let's talk about the weather hurricane tropical storm -- what political impact do you think that'll have on this convention.
I don't think it's gonna happen impacted does this one day I was a big part of Monday and how I just got here and I find out that Monday was canceled but.
I don't think it's going to have a huge impact I think the message is going to get out.
And the message is going to be a message of jobs it's about jobs Mitt Romney is and was a very very successful person.
He knows business he knows jobs he knows how to put people to work.
And you look at our unemployment it's not eight point three is probably twenty or 21% the real number he had point three is just fiction.
The real number is probably twenty or 21%.
Minimum fifteen or 16%.
Mitt Romney will put people back to work so -- specifically -- to take away -- the Romney needs to leave here winners haven't been given to the folks.
To the thirty million -- and actually saw this maybe taken a first look at -- what's the take away what I think the one thing they have to do is not be so politically correct where a country that's -- tremendous trouble.
We have to say it like it is we don't have to be nice to President Obama we don't have to say.
He's a wonderful person because he's probably not a wonderful person.
And frankly they cannot be politically correct they have to say it like it is.
This country's in trouble our president has done a poor job.
And we have to put this country back to work we have to stop other countries from destroying us whether it's China.
OPEC nations or any other virtually any other country that we deal with.
You look at the country of Colombia relatively small trading partner -- use the word partner well that's not a partner.
But four billion dollar deficit with Colombia.
That's a small -- China's going to be probably close to 400 billion dollars in deficits.
We can't do it we can't afford it and we ought to what do we do how do we pay for the deficits we borrow money from China.
So Mitt Romney gets it he's a great businessman he's going to change things.
And he's also got heart he's a wonderful person his wife is a fantastic person.
I think it's going to be an amazing combination they're talking about shifting of the strategy the Romney campaign he mentioned he needs to tell it like it is.
Is he being too soft as -- need to have a little more Donald Trump approach to things or does he still have to play it -- he's a good person.
He's a tough person when he has to be I think he's going to show that toughness I think he has to show the toughness.
He's a very Smart guy I'd just say that you have to say it like it is the old expression from the great Howard Cosell tell it like it is.
The country is doing terribly we're in deep deep trouble.
Four more years of Obama we're not gonna make it and -- -- you can come back if it continues obamacare is a disaster it's going to destroy.
It's gonna -- to you know we're going to be up to seventeen trillion dollars in deficits very soon seventeen trillion.
It was an -- that you never even heard the -- the word trillion wasn't in the vocabulary now it's like commonplace.
So let's seventeen trillion act and unemployment had 151621%.
Anyway you want to cut it.
You look at inner city unemployment.
And that is a number that's probably forty to 50%.
The country can not continue to go on like this so.
I think committee is going to get the message across and when he gets -- of course people are gonna just -- the message in that.
Paul Ryan's message she's very good at delivering a talk on Medicare and looks like Republicans might actually -- -- -- actually selling.
Romney's vision -- -- not the original Paul Ryan.
Are they succeeding and Medicare in your opinion I think he -- he's actually saying that he's gonna save Medicare.
Because if you keep going the Obama -- Medicare is not gonna exist any longer.
And if you look at what Obama care has done to Medicare they've stolen 716.
Billion dollars from Medicare.
So they're destroying Medicare I think Paul -- and Mitt Romney we'll save Medicare I know they will and people are starting to understand it.
They're going to be very happy with what's going on but they're going to be very very unhappy -- Obama gets in and I think actually.
If Obama gets in and of Obama care is intended.
I really think Medicare will be.
I think the best.
