Disney slogan Crist campaign as the word.
A government that spends one trillion dollars more than it takes them.
And 800 billion dollar stimulus to created more debt -- jobs.
A government intervention and the health care paid for with a higher taxes and cuts to Medicare scores of new rules and regulations these ideas don't move us forward.
These ideas move us back towards.
America is the story of everyday people.
Who did extraordinary things.
A story woven deep into the fabric of our society.
Their stories may never be famous.
But in the lives they live it you will find the essence of America's greatness.
And to make sure that America is still a place.
Where tomorrow is always better than yesterday that is what our politics should be about.
And that is what we are deciding this election.
Harrison Allen west joins -- nice to see is there's always a pleasure to see you Greta welcome report thank you very much I'm so was it fun and exciting and good thinking Florida the -- convention.
I think it's a great thing for Florida hosts this convention as you know the East Coast -- their opportunity we're hosting the final debate on October -- -- his second over Boca Raton.
Putt it's your health sweetest swing state does good it sure helps -- this -- they were about and make sure we're gonna swing and in the right direction they get -- love when this wasted I.
G I -- satisfied you've Tea Party.
-- -- -- says is that a good word.
I'm a traditional conservative.
Come aggressors yeah okay good I I 200%.
Satisfied to take it.
I am I think that when you look at the case that they made.
They made the case about the contrast between the governing philosophies.
What we want to do for this -- limited government fiscal responsibility.
Individual sovereignty free marketplace ideas and a strong national defense as -- what we see I think it was very telling when you have that debt clock up there.
And also the debt that it was -- since the start of this.
Cnn.com -- -- -- seven -- eight point five billion dollars was the debt -- during the course of the Republican net.
Conventions -- money a lot of money do learned this -- Maybe do a whole lot of -- my apt comparison as it traveled the state because this tends to have parents and older population.
The whole issue about Medicare I think I have the citizens in your district and they ask you about the Medicare are they worried that that about Medicare.
We'll see this is important thing we've -- a constant conversation with our constituents.
Over in the in the East Coast of -- in the treasure coast so they understand the stress the Medicare they understand.
That actuary report has Medicare going bankrupt in twelve years nine years after that Social Security they understand about the seven -- sixty billion dollars of cuts.

You know when you get caught in an ambush the most important thing is -- taken action to do something but for the Democrats to just sit around and point fingers of the Republicans that's not what leadership is about.
You -- and I ambush and they have a distinguished military Chris I'm curious and we have said before that one of some of the military background check it.
Didn't get that are you satisfied that did this by the fact that neither one has military background.
This very concerning their for the first time a 77 years we have a sitting president or vice president.
Think candidates also for the same offices.
That and never served in the military so I think the important thing is someone such as myself the sits on the armed services committee -- -- two years in the military.
Will be there is a resource to provide the the console.
And the advice to the Romney arrived ticket to make sure that we do the right thing for our military especially when we have these Obama defense -- who we know sequestration.
This looming over our men and women.
Hasn't always Jesse is -- a pleasant.
