The government is actually pretty neat because you would be great -- and I see nothing wrong with that you are the governor.
Problem the president comes -- say he should -- but but having said that.
What what message do you want to related.
Well first of -- I'm gonna tell the president.
We're deeply disappointed in Iowa we basically launched his candidacy for years ago.
He promised to be unifier who would bring the country together and then he promised to reduce the deficit in all he's done is increase the deficit.
-- is massive bailouts.
And with his Obama healthcare plan which is unaffordable and unsustainable.
And -- -- and the other thing that he really miss the opportunity to do is one year ago.
He could have been as stated the union address address the Simpson -- recommendations.
To reduce the deficit and also reduce.
Million corporate taxes would -- such an impediment to businesses investing and growing jobs instead he spends is -- time.
Attacking the very people that we need to invest in -- jobs in this.
Private sector businesses and entrepreneurs.
Saw on deeply -- -- it resonating hello totally -- I want to present to know.
We think -- should not be spending his time giving political speeches but spend his time focusing on solving the problems like governors are doing.
Okay -- -- -- governor I'm just saying it must be resonating within your own party because when Newt Gingrich raised those.
Same issues of fairness and whether capitalism as little at least orchestrated by Bain Capital.
Has been there are decent -- right now he did dial it back cents.
He was -- some -- the saying this -- -- more muted tones -- grant you.

-- seeing the national debt go up.
More than a trillion dollars every year he's been president.
We don't want to be where Greece is in where Europe is today and we need a president that will do like the governor's.
There were elected in 2010 are doing.
Cutting the size and cost of government.
In reducing the tax and regulatory burden to bring private sector investment in jobs to our states that's what I'm doing that's what other governors are doing.
That's what the president should be doing instead he's playing politics.
And I think that's a tragedy he is the president he has an opportunity do something meaningful Simpson -- gave me a chance.
To put together a bipartisan plan any punted.
I think that's unforgivable.
In if -- tonight focuses -- More partisanship and more dividing people.
I think that's an even worse indictment.
-- he has a lack of leadership.
All right governor -- are very much governor Terry Branstad.
Has the president makes his -- -- not only his state.
