Back in the RNC chair rice pray yes hey good morning guys.
It has not been an easy convention -- you -- from the challenge that everyone's facing a tropical storms like hurricane.
-- -- -- -- that it deal is you can't solid baseball right you can't make the call before the first pitch you have to.
Make a decision to get you know about a hundred and thousand buses over -- by -- Clearwater in saint Pete and when emergency services -- you that they can't guarantee the safety of these buses coming across the causeway is.
You saw that the Secret Service toward the -- down in front of the forum via which meant that.
They have very few entrances and everyone to be standing outside and if you think it's going to be driving sustain rained -- you know -- and you know you gotta make that decision -- -- -- services and you know that's the right thing to do you -- -- err on the side of safe.
You always do meanwhile its full steam ahead as you guys said yesterday.
We're going with the we understand full slate of speakers are gonna have and Romney is going to be speaking right governor Bob McDonnell of Virginia -- Haley and the key notre Chris Christie didn't.
A -- you know.
Well I think Chris is going to be Chris tonight but I also think that he's gonna talk a little bit about.
You know the Mitt Romney story from his perspective.
Why he thinks that we need to change in the White House I think you may hear some things about the fact that the president made a lot of promises but he didn't deliver on too much and the fact -- -- matter is this is a job review.
And the question for the American people is do you want to have four more years so important this sort of trajectory that were on this Barack Obama economy.
Or do you think it's time to get somebody in the White House that -- a simple thing.
How to be a person of your word.
Make a promise and keep a promise and I think governor Chris is gonna capture some -- -- 101 of the reasons he was chosen to keynote is because he is electrifying.
He's done a good job and by many -- in New Jersey but he also speaks what he thinks attorneys checked the report that he was asked to tone it down for Anaheim.
None at all and I can tell you one thing nobody wants to mess -- that New Jersey attitude so.
I about it Atlanta -- -- that's exactly so no no one's gonna do that but you know what.
I don't I think debt prosecuting Obama.
For what he promised he would deliver in this country in what is delivered is something that Chris Christie can do very well right.
And and also I think -- the aside a governor Chris and that maybe sometimes isn't always come across in the 32 clips tc you're.
The bombers this you -- Iran that is truth detector which rested checking your -- would ask you the following questions in terms it's a collided with -- that we -- -- True I -- -- get my body out right OK fine so this is there's a few people that have been talked about as possible surprise -- ha ha -- all right so we have to find out if your blood pressure picks up and we mentioned certain people.
The approval -- be telling the truth weeks I've watched a lot of I'm really what's in the rookies is child plus -- Miami with -- that's very true Sarah Palin could she be the surprise speaker tonight.
Thursday night and there's.
-- -- -- -- -- -- You got a dvd -- always be general -- and General Petraeus.
I don't think this yeah I think it would -- better than we had magic eight ball right out of it get better representative Ted Nugent.
That extra -- I don't or anywhere there's no word on -- -- special speaker and I think everyone's got to tune in on Thursday night.
And check it out it's going to be a great night.
Well he wasn't an additional prize yeah.
Yeah he was gonna do surprise Monday but -- -- got canceled so he wouldn't maybe be on the short list -- surprising figures and they tell you.
Mean as far as Monday is concerned we have absorbed.
All of the folks.
From Monday into the rest of the week.
As far as Thursday night it is you know this is going to be a big night -- Mitt -- -- -- a big part this week is telling the Mitt -- story.
-- -- a good and decent man that knows how to fix things that has everything he's touched has been successful.
We've -- and he's live the American dream is a generous man and that's something that our party this week you're gonna see is embracing the American dream.
And you know what we're also the party that embrace -- success.
And there isn't a democratic parent or Republican parent -- doesn't want success and American dream for their kids were so I think it's about time that we we tell that.
-- right and yesterday you really took you drew a great comparison.
And contrast because I don't imagine that the Democrats at their convention next week and we're going to have a gigantic debt clock all right everybody that we're in big money trouble a nation that surrenders its -- surrendered sovereignty to its bondholders.
Can't guarantee prosperity your freedom to anybody and we should all remember that.
So that's gonna keep -- -- a way yeah and it's going to reach what sixteen trillion dollars by the time Ronnie takes -- -- that's right in the -- -- the lit up another debt clock yesterday which just accumulates that.
The -- -- of debt.
That -- country has taken in during just the course.
Of the convention -- them.
I think it'll open up a lot of -- slots in each of these you know Republicans are responsible for some of that day to you cannot pin it all on presence certainly not Communist plenty -- blame to go around however this president promised -- -- things one he'd cut the deficit in half but in of his first term.
Biggest structural deficits in the history.
Of the world under Barack Obama the second thing is he said that President Bush was unpatriotic for four trillion in debt well.
And and and less than half of that time President Obama has not only put us on a trajectory not only beaten that record but he also put -- on -- trajectory.
To accumulate more debt.
Then every single president before him.
Combined in and that's the Barack Obama legacy that you say you gonna tell the story of Mitt Romney tonight is that also admitting that and it has not been effectively told to this point.
No I don't think so I think it's I think it's.
That people are just getting to know Mitt Romney I mean this is going to be saturation of the Airways popular gonna get to know who Mitt Romney is what he's about.
And you know a lot of people don't know I think enough about Mitt Romney's personal life and because you know I like to talk about and you know what he's very humble person.
And you know what when your humble person and you don't like talking about yourself and when it makes you.
Feel an easy -- to give you yourself and at a boy on politics and things.
People are always about themselves and when someone comes around and -- Elizabeth's everyone else quote that means it's incumbent on on -- to kick to tell that sales.
Lot of people haven't heard a story yet and tonight we've learned all right -- previous thank you very much for -- who wanted to back out the way to probably about twenty guest appearances.
I think you got a lot to do par tomorrow night to stop -- but thank like I don't I -- -- you can't let their dad's bad here today.
