I was talking my communications staff today and much indicates that gets a lot of credit for.
Things that I do around the country and they have done I think a fabulous job of those -- -- lowering expectations for tonight's we've -- I was listening to a lot of commentary this morning on television this is basically got to be.
-- forty minute version of the Gettysburg address or I'm in huge trouble.
I -- by 1030 tonight.
I'm gonna be a little bit like that horse in the gate at Kentucky Derby you know waiting for the bell the golden gate to -- it up against the -- try to get out there.
So it can we shouldn't cigarettes at the preview your -- -- that I.
That's so again New Jersey governor Chris Christie.
Getting ready for his big speech tonight 10:30 PM eastern time you could see here on Fox News Channel the latest Fox News poll we asked folks.
What's their opinion of Chris Christie favorable you can see in the GOP 52%.
Pretty popular there.
Can't rate of course some people don't know who -- is they will tonight if they're watching we're back with the panel bill some thoughts on -- The speech you've heard some things.
Yeah I spoke with one of governor Christie's capable communications staffers today actually I think -- -- process up a little -- I do not think this will be did look you know the blistering indictment of Obama that a lot of people expect.
I think the speeches written by Governor Christie I think he got some guidance from the -- people but this is very much his effort.
There will be an attempt to lay out what he's that in New Jersey what kind of conservative reform support that the state level.
And you'll say Mitt Romney will -- the equivalent at the national we'll try to associate.
The Romney -- campaign with successful.
Conservative reformist it was -- he's really -- full body at the same level.
I think the -- you'll hear a lot is truth the American public deserves to hear the truth they're capable of hearing the truth they're adults.
They're not gonna shrink anywhere than the citizens of New Jersey.
Christie will say shrink from tough choices so I think that is somewhat different tone than people who expect -- out there -- just you know land based Obama.
Judging by the preview -- it'll probably be a little humorous.
And he'll be raring to go in that gate of the Kentucky Derby as you put it.
Yeah in fact he represents I think -- that was wing of the party and we'll deliver remarks along the lines -- what bill was talking about that -- -- problem -- -- knows how to work with Democrats he's gotten things done in New Jersey.
The Mitt Romney that you'll have running this time.
There -- contrary speech I think we'll come from Rick Santorum.
And Rick Santorum will try to fire this place up and I think he'll speak to Tea Party enthusiasm and dynamism and the conviction politician for true conservative principle and I have to take back some of the things he said about.
Our friend in the past and we call them flip flop or in the worst Republican who could possibly run against Obama.
His speeches in prime -- -- and Romney and Chris Christie Charles and that's what all the networks will carry will carry them as well we're streaming the other speeches.
Well I agree that -- Christie's speech is not going to be all negativity.
I think what's really important is the theme of the Republican campaign.
Is that the other side Obama that have ideas they tried their plans for a term.
Not working and we either Republicans are willing to say what's going all of the country.
The radical reforms that we have to do that I could use a word radical.
But Kristy we'll talk about his experience.
As a guy who did who took on intractable problems that the states have for example taking on the teachers' union.
And that's sort of the -- we can do what we're gonna look people in the AI we're gonna take on the intractable special interest and we can do this.
He's one point about his speech.
The keynote address is page springboard.
Barack Obama had -- you know for the next.
I Psycho he was the nominee Bill Clinton -- an 88 next cycle he was a nominee.
We could be looking at one of the future stars perhaps nominees in the future.
I think we're absolutely looking at a future star and what's so interesting every convention has the kind of subtext story of big fight for the next time.
Whether it's in four years or eight years you've got a hugely talented bench in the Republican Party Christie Ryan rubio.
And a lot of people are looking at -- -- that did that new direction of the party Mitt Romney.
Doesn't -- -- much passion as these younger guys is seen as a transitional figure but these people and especially Chris Christie are the future of the party.
They're conservative reformers as bill said.
And I think tonight is the beginning of the battle for either 206020 plan.
Bill last word here.
Because the pick of Paul Ryan it is a different campaign for the Romney campaign it's bigger it's bolder.
Chris Christie match is going to talk about truth I talked about.
With Jeb Bush the vulnerability for President Obama on not leading on entitlement reform and tax reform.
That's -- to be a big part of this campaign.
Absolutely and I think the Kristy tonight being conveyed to speaker along -- Romney of course Paul Ryan tomorrow night.
To combat that is suddenly a Republican Party that's been characterized a lot of bad rule men -- a lot of them in the sixties and seventies for the kids and adults the first two nights of this convention.
Our Chris Christie -- a young.
Quite young -- -- at least.
Populist governor of New Jersey than Paul Ryan the very young and very impressive reformer from Wisconsin it's it's it's -- -- that's different from either the southerners.
Yahoo! we've seen a lot of -- -- -- what he has nothing against the south.
Oh and it's different from the -- and -- figures that we -- a lot of -- it's a surprise tonight.
I think Santorum is going to be the -- and I was just and don't forget since mormons mix of people who were battling for the heart of the party's future Charles.
Christie having is going to be hilarious that was surprise some people.
At I don't think of spreading people -- to surprise people relax entertaining people hadn't seen him of our -- They'll be -- panel thank you as always that's of the --
