I would I that for the economy Mitt Romney promising to excel at the issue that matters most Americans and that's getting the country back to work.
Take a look at what he said -- -- aren't saying.
I'm running for president to help create a better future.
A future where everyone who wants a job can find a job and I like the president's.
I have a plan to create twelve million new jobs.
So how exactly does he plan on doing that -- to break -- down for us is Virginia governor Bob -- who is with the Romney campaign to see governor.
Aggressive -- good -- aren't so help us cent figure out how twelve million jobs will be created if president.
-- -- Romney becomes president.
Let's have a good news is you've actually got a candidate -- had a record of -- jobs both as governor of Massachusetts senate that.
Private sector and I think everybody knows 8% unemployment for 43 months now it's just unacceptable unsustainable.
Presidents tried his policies that -- what Mitt Romney said is listen I've got to -- got a five point plan.
For -- jobs for the middle class and -- trade workforce development.
Debt reduction -- focus on small business.
And and energy and those are all the things that he's so laid out in the end Sunday tell although everybody always wants -- tell.
That will help to get us back up back to work trying to -- as governor of Virginia were to have a five point 9% unemployment rate in Virginia but.
I just say that -- bureaucracy of the unfunded mandates the attacks on the energy industry in Virginia we be doing a lot better with a pro jobs governor like Mitt Romney a president like Mitt Romney.
-- -- ride your coattails into Virginia being good shape for the electoral votes.
Mitt Romney essentially was told -- fund rate a group before -- -- -- fund raiser.
The 40% 47% of the country basically at a reach because they're getting.
Fully funded from the government so to speak they're not taxpayers who -- -- -- message.
How damaging if it all.
Is this tape that's out this published in mother Jones that talks about the governor that -- that has the governor talking about all this.
How proud I haven't seen the I have to say that started second tape but I -- -- the four years of the Obama record and it's not good when it comes to.
People being able to have -- -- freer and independent lives I think what the governor was trying to say he said he didn't say it right it's what I've what's been reported but what it.
But it is trying to say is that that number of people on food stands a number of people have to depend on government because of allows the Obama economy.
43 months of 8%.
Is unacceptable and he wants more people to be able to get back to work and make more taxpayers -- so we.
Get ourself out of its debt by having more people with access to the American grade.
So he'd say it probably differently today but it about it as a significant problem.
When you have this level of people that don't play -- significant amount of taxes because.
They can't earn a good good good living -- our job grace and economic development for these plans I think -- exactly the right formula for the country.
Right now comes back to jobs which is where we started -- governor Bob McDonnell of Virginia thanks for your time this morning.
