-- it's been a lot of reaction in response to New Jersey governor Chris Christie's keynote speech last night.
At the Republican National Convention many thought Christie's tough love approach would land him the VP spot.
And the governor was on -- so called short list -- What worked in his speech.
And what didn't.
Your comment as -- president's candidate and former mayor of New York City itself.
Who -- out of the New Yorkers last night on the floor that's very Giuliani welcome back -- ever had a great time last night absolutely all my old -- that's happened so did there was a report did governor Chris he was gonna come out really got emanated from you.
And -- -- I was told to tone it down a little number one do you think it's true and number two Diddy.
Well I think he had he gave the speech -- convention wanted him to give which was to give a philosophical contrast.
Between a failed -- Well let's opportunistic -- idiots like that -- just that but that's the.
That's at underwater in the -- and -- and Chris is a very Smart guy very accomplished guy you're very good lawyer he gave exactly the speech to the Romney campaign we -- That you don't want to let you.
I remember you were stand out they're endorsing -- -- for people to endorse Christmas do you remember where he announced write about it right what kinds of apartment I didn't -- -- -- I have a right to his apartment.
I'm running for governor of taking the job a -- You don't look over ten million dollars at -- -- it's still lost.
-- last -- they didn't really need the attack dog because I understand the campaign feels.
There's so many Americans already have a a bad image of a negative image of Barack Obama they wanted to set up the vision thing and he started the ball in.
I think that's Friday and -- it basically I'll lay the ground work for what I think will be Paul Ryan's speech tonight.
This is that you know -- we we have a president who fails to make tough decisions he's afraid to take on Medicare he's afraid to take on social security and if we keep having this -- we're gonna lose it.
And I think Paul Ryan tonight consider where not afraid to take these things on and what I taking Medicare away from -- we're gonna -- -- four and a -- because this guy's gonna make it go bankrupt.
-- one of the things I think a lot of people were surprised about governor Chris Christie's speech last night led.
They might have expected him to say more get off of each kind of a lie and children -- and Corzine out of did expect a softer side of Chris -- that it.
Greatest -- the mom ever taught me there was this one.
She told either be tied to your life.
When you have to choose.
Between being loved and being respected.
-- she said to always pick being respected.
She told me that -- without respect was always fleeting.
But that respect.
Could grow -- real and lasting love.
All right so the softer side -- just think during my father taught me the same thing.
My father would always say to me it's more important that you respect me they love me.
And if you respect me.
You'll eventually look me in the right way and and that's that I conducted myself with an iron it was more important to me to do the right thing is the nature that it was to have people you know warning over right now -- -- in this in the governorships all across the country from Ohio to Indiana to New Jersey if they I don't I know the polls -- -- dip.
Had this put this is what's got to be done yet Chris represents a group of governors that are very much like him that I have a slightly different styles but -- willing to.
Cut expenses they're willing to deal with -- so they can save them there they're willing to take on unions and make sure the unions aren't really taking advantage.
That takes a lot of courage to do that and I think you can look at Michigan you can look at Wisconsin you can look at Ohio you can look at Virginia you have guys like Chris Christie I think that's what he was representing us.
And in -- last night we heard from a lot of the reformers and then with -- -- notre we also heard Chris Christie.
Dual zinger you pick up on this listen.
There's only one thing missing now leadership.
It takes leadership but you don't get from reading a poll BC mister president real leaders don't follow polls real leaders change polls.
OK so it's all about leadership and.
Exactly right at taking on the things that this president has failed to take on.
Because he's afraid failed to tell the America the truth about Social Security about Medicare setting up a commission to make recommendations on the budget in the economy the Simpson Bowles.
Commission and then just ignoring them -- -- like -- might not meeting with his jobs -- council voted for months and months and much like goes out raises money.
This is a president who has guided very much by one thing and one thing alone getting himself re elected.
The best advice I got when I first became mayor was.
Act like you're a one term there.
Should get a get by getting reelected if you don't get real lucky to be proud of yourself.
And if you do you can get reelected for good really I think it was definitely his visual -- -- -- -- that -- how does that make sure.
That was from Bill Powers US that would last night that great a great speech last night.
Well I think it was an A plus for what for what for what he had to do.
All of us who know and wanted to see him go out there are just you know punch the heck out of out of President Obama which is -- -- table -- I think it's a real mark of what are -- -- curious that he could do something different and do it very effectively.
And I thought and Romney was remarkable off the -- particularly given the fact that she's never given a speech like that before.
Chris is a professional -- he can do five different kinds of speeches she's not a perfect.
Craig the mayor we're gonna I got -- minute you're sticking around.
And we've been talking about who would be Mitt Romney's in his cabinet -- attorney general --
