Is there anyone who can get something done.
Joining me now from New Orleans is 2012 presidential candidate and former CEO of godfathers pizza Herman -- good morning to you mister -- Hello -- did thank you what do you make of the fact that he's budgets can pass what's not.
But what's gone on he has.
They're not being honest with the American people the fact of the matter is Ryan's plan represents giving people but -- -- But if you fit the value of the major poll that you're not going to be affected nobody's talking about that secondly.
Nobody's talking about the fact that the centerpiece of Ryan's plan is eight voucher.
Now lot of people don't like to use that term because it have a negative connotation.
That is what we need.
The -- the other thing that they are not being honest with the Democrats -- not -- announced with American people.
Medicare will go all -- it clear.
If we do not restructure right he can't -- form and we can't keep keep it down a rope they are not doing a good job of explaining it to the American so.
Sounds like mr.
-- -- your supporting.
A congressman Ryan's plan it's interesting because other Republican candidates like Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty.
Are not outright supporting it because they say they're gonna come up with their own plans how do you respond to that.
I still pull it -- his -- 100%.
We don't need to come -- with another plane.
The people who are back in the way from Ryan's play in which isn't very well thought out he's already had his school would.
They simply let -- it's Gretchen -- -- -- have a way to put it.
They don't let cover -- don't back away sump pumps up the just because it's controversial -- because this difficult to explain to the American people.
The American people love not stupid.
Explain it to -- Well maybe that's what the reasons that an in a new Gallup poll you are now matching the highest posit -- -- number that's basically divide the they -- you give off mister -- look at that 27%.
That's that's a high intensity score Newt Gingrich at eleven Tim Pawlenty thirteen Romney fourteen.
Yeah why people like you.
Well I think it's my passion.
Number one number two is not added to.
People want to believe in America again.
And I think they see that when they hear my message.
And they hear how I did live among message -- -- you've mentioned earlier as you introduce in this before I came on about.
Some people calling my presidency if detainment right well you know -- -- -- comma is one of my favorite political commentators believe the first one to use that.
But I think on this one he's gone off the road you -- if you consider inspiration.
And excitement in -- -- detainment.
Well that positive that the school says the American people want some solutions and they want some inspiration and they want to believe that America again and they see that in my passion.
Well let's take a listen to Karl Rove because she also.
Believes that your candidacy could be entertainment the -- yes.
Well except Huckabee first of all was -- been -- governor for what ten years lieutenant governor for two years before Herman -- talk radio guy and Atlanta former head of club impeach its national pizza -- Has a lot of excitement but you have to look it's not just your narrative about Obama's not just journal personal narrative it is what have you done in your life -- gives us confidence that the vision that -- laid out is something you can actually do.
I think what Karl Rove is talking about is that even though you have this high positive -- number you don't have high name recognition and some of your critics say.
That your week on things like foreign policy.
Your response my response -- quite -- opportunity you have to earn you can -- name ID and secondly.
We'll all -- respect the car -- the the radio -- as he refers to me you know it's not about -- he -- not looked at my record.
You don't have to have worked in politics and in government all -- life.
You'd be able to solve a problem that's what my record sales he has not looked at my racquet now all these people out here that a supporting me.
And who like me because of how positive it is cool because of the high showing in the Zogby poll that recently came out.
These people see something that call role and the political establishment don't see.
That's that that's just simply.
They don't see it because they have stuck in the old political parent that you must have hit -- public office.
How that we're -- -- you -- -- -- -- to get you must have been hot name I'd be weakened by the name ID.
Right now what I would rather turn positive it is.
-- -- from the people.
Real quickly in a couple of interviews he did take stumbled with regard to a question about the Israeli -- Palestinian situation yes I -- is that is that welcome to politics certain mister -- can you recover from those types of things.
Chris Wallace call -- -- all -- garbage that question I admit that.
But he won't catch me off guard that same question again -- he's gonna have found another one so now.
There -- going to be times when you gonna be caught off guard that's all part of being in the public -- -- -- the ball kind of like when we heard using Three Dog Night when you're coming to the break joy to the world.
