News channel -- welcome back in the C thanks for having me.
When we stopped -- you wanna talk about Romney vs Newt's idea and you think -- winds well Romney has to do well in these early states he has to perform well in Iowa he asked -- -- where mostly in New Hampshire because I don't think he can win South Carolina so those two states are critical for him.
I'm not sure looking at the polls that he's gonna do about it mean I -- was never a safe bet for Romney wasn't a -- in 2008 so he needs New Hampshire.
Now -- skating on and I think the most significant thing we saw this week was Romney publicly saying.
-- he's gonna win Iowa which is -- his campaign did not.
Want to do because.
If he doesn't place well and he is managing expectations that he doesn't place well in Iowa going -- New Hampshire that's gonna cut off the money that's gonna happen stumbling.
Well look look what -- a financial program so -- in trust in the results of next year's election from a financial standpoint.
Not and I think a lot of our view is would want to see a change in direction for the economy on tax policy and spending policy and debt I think most spiel on in our view is we'll probably want to see President Obama defeated for a second term.
Do you think that news all Mitt Romney all mall like who which one of the -- is well like a debate President Obama who do you think.
I think they both have a good shot but I -- and -- -- -- you but on the you know.
Tell that to make a judgment I am gonna make a judgment I'll say what Newt Gingrich has the record of doing that he is the record.
Of putting ideas on the table and working -- Democrats to get them done he is the guy who got Bill Clinton.
To concede and go along with welfare reform I think he's really new songs and -- -- -- little.
And role they're getting Bill Clinton to reach out on a balanced budget that I value but -- -- there's that issue here's Stewart.
You'll get both a clearer choice with new than you would with Mitt Romney like on tax policy.
You're not gonna get -- saying -- IE wanna limit.
Tax benefits to those under 200000 dollars that's not home.
Mitt -- operates but -- is also right.
New understands compromise he is as shrewd -- political operator as there is he starts at an initial deficit.
But don't count -- are what who do you do you think that Newt Gingrich can beat Barack Obama.
I think Barack Obama can beat Barack Obama and given the economic news we've seen recently.
This race is at the very least a -- limit Barack Obama can be -- by enemies he stands on his record loses he's an incumbent in the elections -- referendum on the incumbent but Newt Gingrich and win that election -- can Mitt Romney.
One of the things that I've been hearing just from people on the street about -- is that he has international experience and knows what that he's talking about -- -- -- you know and I think to a night I'd like him I think people let and -- wasn't and in these debates that do not he's comic well.
I told I want him to the press secretary of liability issue does he come across as too arrogant right is he too Smart for his own good I think he's got that in check now Romney's campaign is hoping that he doesn't they're hoping that he -- in the next thirty days.
I don't see it happening I think he's too -- for that.
But it you know.
But -- -- will tell you Stewart on the issue you've raised which is the fiscal challenges facing America.
A Newt Gingrich as president would reach out.
To a either Republican or a split congress and make that big decisions I -- -- -- spend time with him he is -- patriot and committed to big ideas and big solution.
And here's why I'm not buying this Mitt Romney's the most electable.
Is because and Doug you and I talked about -- The same issues the flip flopping on climate change on choice issues.
These issues are gonna cause consternation with independents and Democrats to that doesn't make him electable -- -- -- fund Barack Obama.
I'm excited to paint him as a flip flop -- whereas.
Only reason he's doing well right now -- it is because we haven't dug up an affair -- hasn't forgotten something in the middle of the debate right.
He's -- he's basically under the radar and that's why he's holding on.
If we start to really hear from the -- are you really -- want him to represent her and we did our own Brett Bair did an interview with him and I mean Bret -- did a great job but he couldn't even handle bracket if you can't handle -- there how -- -- -- handle the liberal media.
Why couldn't he come out and take a stance on immigration.
He's a very similar stance direct to that Newt Gingrich wildly dancing around on that -- that's people's issue with him is he just does not say what he means one that's.
-- very interest and discuss -- -- thank you we'll see how this thing plays out over the next eleven months and a pencil.
