Fun now as -- -- Louisiana governor Bobby Duval -- zagged into he's joining us on the hot seat Brownback and -- and to send your questions and talk a little bit about this new book he had -- Called leadership and crisis and governor so good of you to be here today.
The day before Thanksgiving.
-- thank you for having me well let's start up with the book and and a little bit about politics here.
It's a question that a lot of our viewers have stabbed out this talk -- re branding the Republican Party you talk about this a little bit in your book what does that actually.
-- it means GO re branding the Republican Party.
You know the Republican Party lost power for years ago because we try to -- spending and corruption we never would have except in the Democratic Party.
The voters a couple of weeks -- sent a very strong message.
They are rejecting Obama care cap and trade card check the rejecting fourteen trillion dollar deficits rejecting.
Government spending that's grown to 24% of GDP.
For the Republican Party is on probation is -- -- says we've got temporary power.
It is up to -- congressional and Republican leaders across the country to demonstrate we've heard the voters messages for example.
I thought it was a good ship when senate Republicans moved to oppose earmarks having as an important symbolic move.
Here in Louisiana we have cut taxes we've cut spending.
26% is up taken office are Conning as a result four point dot -- -- we've got -- second best economic performance in the country third best according to Gallup.
-- jobs fifth strongest GDP growth.
What Republicans and conservatives and independent voters across the country are looking for leaders in congress to do is to take that message to heart cut spending cut taxes.
Grow the private sector economy about a whole chapter in the book in leadership in crisis talked about what congress can do for example what is a majority -- before.
Let's get have been there iPod daisy YouTube making so many good points is -- -- sure viewers.
Are able to -- to hear all -- you seeing your book is well that you're talking a little bit about the economy.
That the beauty of America is not in our economy and you going to make the point is really in our culture and Jim whenever viewers once know about priorities.
And this is interesting from taking into consideration just what we were saying about North Korea are hearing and learning about.
I Joe wants to know.
If you're elected president -- where would your prior -- isn't the economy or the national security.
Well look -- clearly clearly domestically and domestic policy we've got -- economy growing.
To create good paying private sector jobs but let's not forget when the -- war on terrorism.
The most fundamental threat to our country is this clash -- these Islamic -- -- that hate our way of life.
I don't agree with the current administration's approach of treating it like a law enforcement.
Problem where they're reading the underwear bomber his his Miranda rights but we've been lucky now we when you think about it when that Times Square bomb -- -- underwear bomber -- -- packages sent to UPS and FedEx all three cases we got lucky.
What's not a strategy when you don't understand this is fundamentally an attack on our way of life we need to root out these terrorist networks we go -- and kill these terrorist wherever we can find around the world.
We can't play defense I think that's what has been such an outrage over the TSA approach and and the scanners and that.
The pat -- -- body searches for six year old and twelve year old children traveling at a grandparents' house.
Because we're not using our intelligence our common sense we're allowing political correctness to interfere with what what we know and how we should be prosecuting -- -- -- -- Governor here's another question coming from jury she wanted to know just about have power have a governor -- because of the traveling in the TSA controversy that.
That's -- -- fewest in note can you use your state power to overrule what the TSA says so in a Louisiana airport for example.
I you can save I don't believe in the scanners and then -- -- in Louisiana the scanners I'm -- do you have -- sort of power.
Now on -- general a lot of airports have talked about opting out do you say that even if he used private sector are her private.
Management or -- screening service is -- reality is.
The federal government Homeland Security TSA says those rules regulations now we are to our delegation and we are trying to push back pretty hard to say this doesn't make sense to us because again I don't think any American who wants to -- -- in fighting.
Terrorism are hardening our our -- is our defense throughout he has.
We all know we see the grandmother we see the child being groped and and and and -- -- we know that's not really improving our security and our safety.
This administration seems to be more worried about giving the terrorist rights treating them like citizens -- citizens like suspects does make a lot of sense to get an error.
I -- in your book.
I don't enjoy eating much.
That was that quote directly from your book when president George W.
Bush asked to talk to you after you were -- dinner.
And you -- you went right to them because you don't enjoy eating very much as this were wondering if that apply to Thanksgiving or is that just you know when the president -- Well look Louisiana where we're home -- some great great food down -- we're gonna have turned up -- at the mansion tomorrow.
