One of our business alert the mormons storming ahead there's a brand new fox -- -- as -- -- showing Mitt Romney jumping ahead of Rick Perry in the Republican field.
As Herman Kane surges and to third place.
The race is tightening up clearly former Republican senate majority leader Trent -- not surprise joins -- right now.
Is -- media -- the nominee what -- what do you think senator.
Well I think you will be he's been doing a really good job in the debates he's handled himself very well he's been running -- some of us steady she goes campaign it's been a well planned he's scared it out well.
He does good in his interviews and so I'm not surprised that He would be in this position and I do think eventually He will be our nominee.
Do you worry though that the fact that.
All of these candidates and voters of Republicans in particular -- -- it in this whole process seem to be looking outside.
Reflects some dissatisfaction.
With what -- Lucent's.
Well I think they wanna look at everybody you know I think we've got a great field of candidates I'm Bob I -- to admit I'm I'm close personal friends with a number problem -- -- Gingrich and Rick Santorum -- -- -- -- -- in the congress I'm very fond of them.
-- government K and I'm not surprised at Herman jumped up the third.
He's got a great life story -- -- the grew up you know in the south for.
He's been a successful businessman he's been and communications.
And He can give a -- order great speech people like to hear -- Hey we all are catching -- this 999.
So but I think to have you know a a full fledged the old campaign you have the primary areas -- -- candidates get in there.
See how they do what can weather the storm look when you go from being a governor or senator you're speaker.
Into this national -- able text you and so that all being -- You know I mean -- so senator but they -- always looks dysfunctional some -- Then you know what I mean by about.
You know all these guys who look good from -- but once in the race far from good -- it comes to mind there was a brief moment we're.
Michelle Bachmann was was it was the same and in there in the race and Chris Christie weighed this and said -- now.
I like looking like a potential Moses outside before I.
I get ripped apart inside I don't know what it is but if -- any one of those other nearly dozen candidates I'm looking at this and saying -- -- What's wrong -- me.
The well but you know owned a Christian I don't think -- a necessarily they don't like that -- is in there they just like Christie.
I mean he's very attractive He gives a great speech he's a straight shooter this speech He gave out of there the Reagan senator was really well -- a fantastic.
He's -- -- making the tough decisions it as governor.
And I think one of the appeals as we keep saying look cut.
I'm not running what at the Pentagon commit suicide.
I think that's a smart decision on -- -- to stay -- is do a good job.
And who knows in the future He may have -- another chance she's got a job that He had been in -- along.
So all of those things tend to make him you know really attractive you know it's the it's the girlfriend Nikkei quite health.
But -- not that I don't think an indictment of the.
Now the united right well there's a lot of on the -- -- -- the story of my life but I digress.
You what I wanna ask you -- you know lose the machinations of Washington better than anybody.
And and and you know these polls that come up out of concern the president is is is rated poorly but congress' as a great and even more towards us -- -- 535.
Of those guys only one of the presidents of the attention focuses on -- and this present I can I can kind of see his modus operandi are kind of see what he's up to.
Let me blame it on the do nothing congress every time I propose they oppose.
Everytime I come up with an idea they should down the idea so here I'm -- and on -- and all they're doing is.
Is the same old ripping.
And then well that obviously people within the White House seemed to think that strategies going to bear -- But it's that is a strategy but I think you've got to multiplicity of problems.
He hasn't shown the leadership became even knew something like send up.
Free trade agreements that everybody has says needs to be done would create jobs it would pass easily through the house and the senate.
But also I think He needs to be a little bit careful about what is going home.
-- beneath the surface of the American people need to look at what's happened in the bureaus and agencies and departments.
The labor agenda is going only environmental extreme -- -- -- them agenda this going on he's got lots of problems that are affecting a lot of people but worst of all.
That the approaches taken on is jobs bill passed this bill now.
He knows this bill is not gonna pass the way is He knows that congress -- not gonna pass it now even the Democrats in the senate not a going Michael -- up now.
Some ladies and while you could have led video part of it is is growling as basic you've seen these survey had to you know be which is -- did the Blue States He He -- -- together or not to get.
The 270 electoral votes He needs he's a lot further along that route than let's say Republicans are and that's what the -- But I really think he's doing a shift from damage down in and -- -- -- of make too much news here but I think the way He is -- that last speech to congress.
And -- what -- sent out on the campaign trail do this jobs bill now even though it's fraught with difficulties.
He's got to be careful because he's -- -- becoming irrelevant if He keeps pushing things that He knows will not happen.
And he's not even just going to Blue States he's going to some.
Some purple -- that are going be rednecks fat so I really are the question do the political wisdom but more importantly.
