Walker we just heard from but first we begin tonight in -- -- house majority leader Eric Cantor.
All right sir welcome congressman the right.
It's awesome -- -- rock -- out there it is -- electric here in this call we're really really excited about the next couple of months and we give big play in this country.
Well obviously have a pretty enthusiastic big night tonight.
Let's start with the you know all -- good negativity.
That's been coming from the Obama campaign and Romney is gonna get out there tonight that we've gotten you know Chris Christie is gonna get out there tonight.
How big an impact will that have on changing the negative perception that Obama and his team try to create anybody you know.
I know that -- and Romney is gonna hit it out of the ballpark because she.
He is OK okay committed woman that would -- your husband mother to her kids she's gonna tell America's story governor Mitt Romney I have.
What he's done a successful family man successful businessman.
-- countries -- definitely need.
You know we actually have a little preview of some of the lines that they released -- what she says here.
And she talks about.
You know this man will not fail -- will not let us down he will lift up America.
That's what it's about Sean we know this is an election that his -- generational election.
We know that choice -- between Americans -- big dreams entrepreneurs who want to go and build.
On their own successes that -- mean they built it.
They built -- tall and and the fact that we have a choice between that which we all know it's about fun of America's small business people or -- People like the president who believes that frankly Washington build success which is something most Americans reject that -- So we have these two big speeches that are coming up we're gonna carry those.
Now I have a little insight into governor Christie's yeah.
I think a lot of people might expect him to come out here in this all be about slamming Barack Obama and it seems he's going to be counter intuitive.
And the message is going to be pretty much we did this -- New Jersey we can do this in the United States of America but we need the right leadership.
Glad to exceed expectations a little -- into it.
Listen Chris Christie's -- and an awesome leader in New Jersey Kerry blue state as we know who is taken on.
The public employee unions and said listen did the math doesn't lie we've got to fix a problem.
And he is in the line of so many of our other governors have spoken here tonight we had our governor from Virginia Bob McDonnell who -- -- -- -- -- -- credible job skywalker Scott Walker of Wisconsin and all of these folks in our leaders set the state level.
Who have demonstrated you know what we can do this it's just time for Washington to finally follows news.
Also part of.
Christie's message tonight and I'll let him I won't give everybody full preview of everything I know but I mean he's gonna save the American people can handle the truth.
It seems like he's going out there under the assumption that the American people understand with -- one in six Americans in poverty 25 million on an -- 49 million Americans on food stamps.
Seems to be going out there.
You know under the assumption that the American people know things are bad and they've not gotten better under Barack Obama.
Not an alien as you know Chris Christie is the first to say he approached his job -- -- that he has.
As governor with two things in my number one always tell the -- the number to try and effect real change solve problems it's the same thing that we've done.
In the US house gets what Paul Ryan brings to the ticket because frankly the budget that he designed -- and drafted.
Is about fixing problems and it's also sought about really telling the American people.
The math doesn't live we can't continue spend money we don't have we got to -- -- pop.
Well -- it's interesting this little book discusses the Governor Walker later.
In the program tonight and governor basic.
To governors face a -- massive deficits not unlike what we're facing -- a national basis.
And they went and told the people that states the truth.
And the people responded and Governor Walker at a but as we all know now after a recall got more votes than -- -- two years prior.
So it seems like people this might be the time that the American people are ready for what balanced budgets entitlement reform and I think it also just demonstrates.
Barack Obama and his -- they really do not give the American people the credit babies or.
Because it is they wanna know the truth they wanna have real leadership that's a Mitt Romney -- -- you'll be all about is telling his troops and helping solve problems.
But let's go to the the tone of the campaign.
Largely by the president and his surrogates Mitt Romney's everything from -- racist.
Puts all back and change stuff I am responsible for cancer.
Once dirty air and water and your friend Paul Ryan you wrote the book young guns with -- -- -- over the cliff.
What -- what impact do you think that's had on the race does that hurt the like ability of president Barack Obama the one thing he seemed to consider -- hold on to throughout much of his presidency.
I think it is sort of degraded the office of the president say it is not becoming of the leader of our country in the free world.
And that is where we are in stark contrast on because what we'll see.
Throughout this -- -- the American people begin to see more and more as we make our way towards November is -- Republicans.
Party renewed with a fresh -- Paul Ryan with Mitt Romney at the Helm of the ticket someone who's demonstrated ability.
To build a business to re claim this is who have failed.
To put people back to work and that's really what we're about here and I'm I'm -- is very side is very.
I was very startled that went back and look that at some of the footage Barack Obama 2008 Invesco Field people crying -- -- -- Obama.
When you compare it it's a war on women it's dividing men and women it's you know dividing people.
That the race card has been played rich verses poor old vs young there at the very thing Barack Obama railed against so.
Often in 2008.
Right -- -- he always was about trying to make real change happen in Washington and you know what he has been the culprit of the cronyism that has infected the federal government even more so now.
He's the reason why as we know we have -- -- -- -- because he wanted to reward his friends.
He's the reason why you see more and more special interest trying to gain an edge because Washington is going to grow ever bigger under his watch.
And -- and defeating of the trough will never stop.
And that's the difference between Austan what then what the other side is trying to do we -- -- stop that as you look at numbers.
But does that.
That one thing I always think about are we borrow forty cents of every dollar we spend.
We think of our kids and our grand kids you really think Americans have become very.
-- probably reaching the point of no return.
These are numbers you deal with every that thought I saw you just look at the facts of -- over the last three years he's hitting point 3% decline in small business startups.
That's where the jobs are disproportionately.
We continue on that -- you're not gonna have a private sector and an engine.
Through the truth to go about living in this economy back up and -- have a government that always does his -- there's money out from one of the people that earnings.
And yes we could very easily become Greece.
If if the policies of Barack Obama -- allowed to contain.
And and the Yankees on this is where I believe -- my producer just disappointed.
You know they know that these policies have failed.
Barack Obama's economic agenda has been a -- what does it been like to deal with personally.
Yeah it may listen here he is he is someone who does not take -- to people who differ with him philosophically.
Or on a policy level.
I mean I certainly had the -- experience of confronting that now -- with the president I know that our next vice president Paul Ryan has also not been subjected to that a good friend of mine somebody that we are.
Locked arm in arm with together in this fight to reclaim our country.
Good to see a congressman can't appreciate on the.
