Governor and then -- Governor Mitt Romney promises to put Americans back to work of these elected president but how can he create twelve million jobs as he promise.
Let's ask three men who have had great track record in their states.
Making tough decisions and being fiscally responsible -- Republican governors joining us right now.
Governor Scott Walker governor Rick Perry of Texas -- governor Rick's Rick Scott of Florida.
Well let's start with you Governor Walker what do you think -- the message could be what what could governor -- take from you.
That would help -- the national scene from what you've done a Wisconsin.
Well you gotta take on tough issues in our state we won a second time the last two years.
Mainly because not only Republicans conservative but a whole lot of independents swing voters realize what they want -- needed to get tough times leadership.
We face an economic and fiscal crisis in our state we took it head on I think in America people realize we're not get leadership out of the current president.
And we had a leader out there was willing to take on -- tough issues I think he could win and that's what Mitt Romney needs to be talked about that's when he is talking.
The governor Scott when things got tough you you pay for your popularity polls temporarily but the beginning to come back up.
Would you make some tough decisions when it came to spending can you run for president to make those same tell America they got to tighten their belt.
Oh absolutely -- in my racing 4010 is exactly the same as a racist here it's all about jobs.
We know that the way we -- -- wanted to do governor Perry's -- cut taxes cut regulation streamline permitting processes and jobs come back.
That's what we did in our first twenty months we generate -- -- 30000 private sector jobs so and biggest drop in unemployment so -- That's what you have to be doing talk about why -- how you're -- the economy around.
-- Governor Perry I think they -- thing about governor Romney he seems to get distracted easy.
Because the Obama administration will get him off defending a statement or.
Capitalizing on things -- getting away from what you've done best and that is create jobs and bring in business.
When I think that's why.
These governors that are highly successful across the country it's really -- -- him.
Most of those governors are Republicans and putting the tax policy and regulatory policy in place as we travel across the country and talk about what we're doing.
And the relationship between those things and what it ought to be in Washington DC where they president.
Like Mitt Romney who understands the importance of giving the states more.
Freedom to make -- decisions whether it's about health care whether it's about education whether it's about transportation infrastructure policies.
That's what Mitt Romney is all about and that's why if this countries to get back on track.
Mitt -- got to be the president.
And then these governors are giving even more freedom to put into place the policies.
That are working in their home state in the next 46 days Governor Walker do you think the governor of former governor of Massachusetts we'll take your advice and the template you put forward.
If you've been critical of the past because he really hasn't.
Well I certainly think one of the best moves -- was when he picked Paul -- not just because of -- -- said.
But it's actually kind of nice to -- the stadium where we won the super boy you're gonna have to go to that and I got just because he's abilities it.
But because in the end it said not a lot not only a lot about Paul trying to set a lot about that Mitt Romney he was willing to be bold.
And aggressive and taken on the nation's problems and that's exactly what he's gonna get with a great partner like Paul -- and he needs to build on that now.
The show he's got a plan to create more jobs in the private sector and to get this budget balance those are the things that aren't happening in Washington didn't say today and we need to make -- happen.
The governor and governor Scott can you tell me what's going out this -- these Chinese investments limited to putting together -- you but you know.
Look we we want more invest in our states all of our states -- we're all competing that's what makes us all better.
There's a group of Chinese investors are traveling the country -- here in Texas today.
As we're all here talking to them about why they should come to each of our states and -- for sure they should come to our country.
We have to understand that -- we're all competing for this we're competing and global marketplace.
We can't continue to process the president Obama's taking us down of higher taxes.
More regulation anti business attitude -- guys say we like businesses and we want them to succeed in our country -- clearly do and our state.
