Two of us so far and good.
Policy at the reunion dinner table for two you don't get diners in New Hampshire Iowa her head into.
Paul thank you for your invitation for lunch and Iowa New Hampshire.
But I will not stand by and watch the people South Carolina ignored.
I've heard it suggested.
But the problem is that the American people have changed.
Too many people want things from government.
But I'm still convinced that the overwhelming majority of our people.
-- -- followed my parents -- The chance.
A real chance to earn a good living and provide even better opportunities for their children when one economic policy after another has failed our working families.
It's no interest simply expressed compassion for them.
-- to create more government programs that offer promise but don't perform.
Instead we must come together advanced new strategies for lifting people out of poverty.
Those last night at the Jack camp foundation award dinner and Marco Rubio accepting the second annual.
Award Paul Ryan had the first.
Award he's the Jack -- protege of course and you heard what they talked about there we're back with the panel.
Looks like these two are torn sixteen front runners would you say Steve.
Yeah I would say that that's true and if here if you're a small government conservative who's been sort of in the wilderness now for the better part of a year really went.
He had all of these conservatives who opted not to run for president the conservatives.
That that's for movement conservatives who did run for Republicans the Republican nomination didn't do well.
You you lost on November 6 a month ago today you've had to deal with the bad Republican hand on the fiscal cliff now for the better part of a month.
This is something to look forward to him and the fact that you have to Republicans leading the party of this stature and capability.
Who for an arm movement conservatives in the sense that they're both intellectuals but also.
This would get these issues viscerally.
This is something to put union.
Talked about the middle class -- talked about lifting people out of poverty.
Much different messages then we really heard on the campaign trail this past you well rubio also seemed to be sort of.
Disagreeing with Mitt Romney's argument a little -- -- this sort of 47%.
You know people who just want handouts kind of thing which she has disagreed with before us I think that's interesting I think it's.
I really kind of reprehensible message.
You know I also I wonder where Jeb Bush fits into the in into this also I can't speak to -- from some on the conservative but I think he's certainly would be one of the leading contenders.
A -- -- with his -- John and Charles.
I share Steve's optimism -- do you think.
They're looking at the future of the party so generational change they're -- essentially Reagan writes I think the big.
Doctrinal disputes in the -- -- over.
Two the Goldwater Republicans Rockefeller Republicans.
You look at this generation just about all of whom could run in 2012.
But we're just a little earlier than now -- going to be coming into their own.
He's so rubio and Ryan you've got to governors.
Jen goes got oracle -- Wisconsin.
Chris Christie as soon as he comes -- -- quarantine.
You've got Jeb Bush Mitch Daniels on the outside up and coming.
Senators he would carry IR and David Cruz who's coming in from Texas.
-- is on -- Martinez Jackson there's isn't really -- -- and inspiring list.
New leaders with very little -- I would say ideological energy and intellectual depth.
And there's my other factor of twenty -- -- assuming our economy still around.
He's gonna -- -- -- was going to be an open seat.
Every time with the one exception every time one party -- held the White House to terms.
They've been kicked out the one exception of course is Reagan bush.
-- being the most successful as in the second half of the century.
So the American calendar history and traditions -- had two terms and then the other guys are coming into this is really -- -- Then that -- in and of itself bring out I think the best young leaders.
The right now it's ten people are tired after the election of talking about elections to come.
But about messaging and what you heard from the speeches.
Did you hear the framing of a new kind.
Conservative -- yes.
I think is -- to return to an old kind of conservative message but being framed in a new -- expect to hear the phrase perform conservatism.
Quite a bit in the coming years meaning and that the thing that sets apartment and the people that the Charles mentioned.
Particularly these two.
Two -- Is the fact that -- eighteen to -- to read they ran for office to do something to get stuff done or not you know I think.
Republican Party in recent years have a lot of people who have run for office.
So that they could hold the office they consider that trappings of being governor senator what have you.
That's not what these guys are bad people like Bobby Jindal Scott Walker who are -- heart walks and conservatives.
