About the backhand anywhere we continue live from the Republican National Convention we are in Tampa Florida our next guest was once thought to be at the top of that Romney's.
Vice presidential short list and has been given the honor of introducing the governor.
Before his acceptance speech tomorrow night.
And we're joined by Florida senator Marco Rubio is you're the -- Noriega vicinity again -- on the Florida and you've been your blog on this on my second time now and I want to live here there's no state tax -- like New -- we want to hear of them were gotta figure that out -- you were up.
As I understand that to the pretty much the last day you are on the -- we ready to go it.
Look guys unless that I and that during -- time I wouldn't even discuss the process but I was just -- that I was even mentioned in the conversation and governor Romney was gracious enough to -- me that night and inform me that you're making been making an announcement the next day and he made a great choice.
And we're gonna see that tonight the American people tonight are gonna get to know.
The Paul Ryan at some of us who work for -- in Washington know a serious policy thinker.
Young guy involved in American politics and really a fantastic leader while I'm real excited about that.
One of the things he's talking about he said look here is our pledge we're not gonna -- -- tough choices we're gonna lead we're not gonna blame others.
We will take responsibility.
Will not try replace founding principles -- -- apply them.
Now that's going to be set his -- -- that's -- And that means you don't go -- the American people explain to them what the stakes are and bringing them along with -- we're not getting that these days easy.
Paul Ryan is is also going to say that.
There's a sense of urgency.
One of the things I've -- a million Olivia our gladness and the emergency well that if we don't get this done now.
We may not be able to recover what we have a clock ran down that wall 151000000000988.
Billion it's gonna hit it's happening trillion during this tendency.
That -- -- in the convention that's outrageous that's larger than our car.
About Medicare is going bankrupt anyone who's in favor of leaving Medicare the way it is right now is in favor of bankrupt.
These are not -- these are not difficult.
It was solve them.
If we don't -- they get harder and -- what happens as a good candidate Obama in 2008 -- called George Bush irresponsible and unpatriotic.
-- trillion dollars in -- in eight years.
And now over five trillion in that period of time what happened and I got out left Barack Obama 2.0 -- -- very different candidate than the person who ran for years ago on multiple final.
You know I actually know some people that have never voted for a Democrat that voted for him because he was -- when he was gonna elevate America politics.
It was going to be high minded coming that's long gone you've seen him speak graft begin tonight -- remind this is the president that deliberately pits American.
The political game it's not that Barack Obama's longtime what do you make about that but this.
There's the class warfare right chronicle there is a war on women.
Hold people rich person.
And of course then the comments of Joseph Biden -- -- the mayor.
Los Angeles he actually said you just can't.
Trot out on top ground they were.
And expect people -- that.
That they're gonna -- your party candidate.
Good -- -- prominent role model personal I don't know I was expecting that Republicans.
Like everything else we really we have to earn things including people both in their support we have an economic message.
But I think especially appeals to minorities and especially to Americans of Hispanic descent.
I would remind the mayor and others that the folks that we featured in this convention by the way happened to be elected they're not manufactured their -- We have a governor Susanna Martinez that -- Tonight in New Mexico Republican Hispanic woman.
Iraq and send the ball it is from Nevada you deserve -- -- sporting news the governor of Puerto Rico and these are real -- -- -- group -- I myself obviously Florida we're excited about -- Allen west and and so here's the bottom line I think that that that.
These are folks that represent our party because what it shows that our message appeals to a broad spectrum of Americans we have to do a better job of and we are what about the one about the president still running like Kansas got what.
On your record.
Gonna say to people you have -- the president go to the American people say you're better off than you were four years ago.
Doesn't it when all is said and done does in the selection come down -- that.
Are you better off than you -- four years ago.
Five trillion dollars and had to go I can you afford five trillion more in depth well it comes down to that but this -- even deeper because it's such a different view of government's role in our economy.
The president believes that -- the government is more involved in our economy will be more prosperous that has never worked anywhere it's been tried.
Mitt Romney and -- here in the Republican Party believe that the economy grows when people take their own money and invested in starting in new business start spending it -- In this business assuming that that.
Governor Romney wins Paul Ryan is the vice president that the Republicans take over the senate they may control the counts.
Is to get to what we all think we need which is what I know we need within the balance budget that seems all.
Like a very difficult task what you think the American people are ready for the serious tough -- That it would take to get there and hence the purpose of the Chris Christie's speech last night that's what leaders do.
Leaders come to the American people and explain to them this is what's going on here are the options that we have.
This is the option we think is the best one will you follow us and that's what leadership is about that's what it would -- leadership pleasant and in every era of our country.
-- that's kept -- straight.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Oh well you know look -- Higher initial responses I told you so you know -- -- -- -- Dwyer ran for your two years ago good night I knew he wasn't gonna stand up for the principles that our party should be about.
But at the end of the day -- he's running at a party run out.
We got to go senator great things.
And thank you over.
