He has spent plenty of time in the White House Jeb Bush has been the some of the president is the -- of the president and the brother of the president.
Many people think one day he may make his own run.
I talked with the former Florida governor last night we started as the band was practicing for today.
But I asked him about the man just voted the Republican party's nominee Mitt Romney.
-- started the interview by asking him what needs to happen at this convention.
A great speech by Mitt Romney was on the stage for the balls campaign rural not just about how the president has -- which he has on economic policies for sure human.
So what what Romney right.
Proposals are a way that people can relate to -- he'll govern you talk down about reaching out to Latinos many times.
Think your party is doing an okay job -- that.
-- it's about a it's a very honest with you in the heat of -- campaign it's -- moment.
Really the job of the party have -- -- -- be an objective a high priority.
During the -- election years really.
Elected officials be the -- -- the thankfully the Republican Party has been party that -- elected.
People like Brian Sandoval all of Susanna Martinez of Marco Rubio and take -- through.
Over the weekend -- -- on your brother and the president's efforts to.
I mean it's -- -- brother and blame.
Washington Post ABC had a bowl -- all -- ask people about the economy and maybe even more sense.
They still thought it was time president.
Have you heard that message from every day in the White House probably -- in the believe it -- the second point is.
The president I -- -- just think that he wasn't coming into the police say look it's not my whole life I have no no ability to deal with them.
And winning strong leadership know -- -- -- Yeah he's their vulnerability there that the Romney Brian tickets is going to really hit -- as far as entitlement reform and tax reform absolutely.
Absolutely I think this the selection of Paul -- a leading indicator that this is going to be an election about big things the president would love nothing more to have it be about small.
Things that are on the margins.
I think governor Romney wins and he may win with a with a better than expected margin if he talks about big things that people no need to get fixed.
You're slated to speak about education still speaking about education aren't -- -- -- It it's an issue that is so important and it doesn't get a lot of coverage.
What about that.
Well because I think people correctly view education.
Policy being made at the local and state level that -- president can be a partner with reformers the governors and and others that the state and local level.
People don't automatically assume this is a federal program that will fix our schools.
But it is something that I think needs to be of national purpose -- needs to be a national priority.
Implemented at the local level.
And this is where I think governor Romney has an advantage over the president.
You in in terms of his understanding of that and being a good partner since he was a governor.
When I go around the country that -- the biggest thing -- -- is why can't Washington worked together.
You know they took them so and we will so he's they're going to be a time when it gets.
Back from this partisan time -- we've seen something of hey let's get something done.
Well if you look at Mitt Romney's wife experiences it's it's been all about solving problems.
Getting from point a to point B.
In the most efficient way in a way that improves whatever it is that he's working on.
And I think as president I would expect him to find ways creative ways to reach across the -- and not just -- Making debating points not just traveling the country doing speeches.
Opponents were trying to find common ground.
That's that's who he's been -- as governor and as a private sector leader and how we ran the Olympics -- I fire I would expect that to be the case if he's elected president.
The president has had two chances to prove this.
One was after historical election right where he won because it was supposed to be about hope and change and differ -- different approach and he hit the good from the get go.
Did the stimulus and health care bill and he I think poison the well and then secondly after the shellacking of 2010.
Get another chance to to do what Bill Clinton did in 1995 which was.
-- a recast the order of things again and he didn't he doubled down on this hard edge ideological approach.
And so he's abandoned the chance to lead and I think Mitt Romney can offer leadership that America desperately needs.
You're clearly a major surrogate for the -- Ryan ticket days and I know what I enjoy having you -- about -- on their behalf from what I hear.
When you look down on that podium is they're just a little bit of you thought it says.
I wish I was given that speech on Thursday.
Not at all just a little I'm completely comfortable with the life I have.
My wife and I are.
Looming -- in in our beloved Miami and I'm from working on the things that are important to me I have I have a blessed life.
Governor thank you thanks unless it's on thanks enjoy Tampa.
