Tonight on the docket who has the Republican establishment truly running against.
Are they running against President Obama or there are they running against you and all believers in small government.
This is an important question for -- -- -- primary voters especially because.
Florida primary voters tend to be practical conservatives.
They often vote for the candidate with the best shot at winning.
Rather than the candidate with the purist ideology.
The establishment -- growing increasingly frustrated by the rank and file stunning rebukes of their choice to run against President Obama.
And they've done so in the first two out of three nominating contests.
That's why the establishment believes it has a chance to break out in Florida where Mitt Romney is currently polling well ahead of the others and tomorrow's primary.
But after Florida.
There is still twenties through excuse -- there are still 46 more state primaries and caucuses yet to come.
Governor Sarah Palin our first guest tonight believes an extended vetting process is -- that had necessary.
Because there will be more revelations like the following.
And Newt Gingrich super pac is running a new -- in Florida.
Blasting governor Romney for his time as a director of a company called Damon clinical labs -- firm that was found guilty by the federal government.
For charging Medicare for unnecessary blood tests take a listen.
At the center of one such Medicare scheme.
Romney or it's -- story front.
Historians think proxy.
Maybe -- -- it's.
Time and PDs criminal fine for healthcare front and -- dvd Massachusetts history.
Ever in Massachusetts history in the fraud -- -- labs appears to have ended.
Only after it was sold by governor Romney's private equity group Bain Capital and his statements about what he knew about the fraud and when he knew it.
Have been largely inconsistent.
As an executive -- -- leveraged buyout firm governor Romney was startlingly effective.
At using debt.
To gain returns on investments.
As a governor as freedom watch has already demonstrated his proficiency in hiking taxes and fees in Massachusetts.
He has yet to explain that to how the -- put together they -- make president capable of handling today's pressing problems of debt and spending.
For these reasons and more our first guest is urging voters in her words to quote Rage Against The Machine.
Governor Sarah Palin believes like Newt Gingrich that the establishment has gone out of its way.
To -- congressman Ron Paul she has applauded congressman Paul for being the only Republican presidential candidate.
Fighting against the aggressive expansion of government.
And she knows the establishment faces a mighty challenge from congressman Paul and is growing army of enthusiastic supporters.
-- -- primary voters care about governor Romney's business dealings or are those dealings a window to his character.
And why is the establishment pushing the candidate whose views have been said to be.
To those of President Obama.
Let's welcome back my fox colleague former Alaska governor former Republican vice presidential candidate.
Sarah Palin governor -- and always a pleasure welcome back -- freedom watch.
Think you're an honor to get to be here.
Got Governor Palin I was so excited when I got up this morning and saw that you had stated over the weekend that you want Republican voters in Florida.
To Rage Against The Machine.
What did you mean when you said that.
Rage against that status -- the status quo within the GOP establishment and got us into a vein pickle that -- again with that of course that cooperation of the machine on the other side of the aisle to where.
You know it it's absolutely insane our economic health in this nation and where we're headed.
And dumb I want to add voters -- Rise up and allow the vetting process to continues to weaken start hearing even more ideas articulated.
Even clear what the solutions are from these candidates -- how we're gonna get back on the right track.
-- as the establishment would like it.
We wrap this -- bidding process -- and cut off the debate cut off the voices of Ron -- -- Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich and you know assuming that.
Mitt Romney continues to be the front -- -- would -- voices at this point it's unfair to the electorate because.
We still don't have enough answers as to how it is that we're gonna come up against Barack Obama contrast against his socialist ideas the solutions that are needed to be articulated where Lincoln I have -- through an extended vetting process.
You I think one could argue began your political career by raging against the machine.
The -- -- corrupt.
That were running the Republican side of the dial in Alaska when you were vying for government.
And a lot of free markets small government defenders of the constitution.
Open and notorious libertarians came to your side.
Question who best is there to Rage Against The Machine today.
Newt Gingrich who was once part of the machine or Ron Paul -- consistently -- the establishment and its borrowing and -- spending.
In its behavior outside the constitution.
Throughout -- -- -- Higher career.
Well new Gingrich has a record of that being able to prove that he raged against the machine in some respects and that's why.
So many of those within the machine are.
I'm so adamantly opposed to him and they're trying to rewrite history and stated he didn't accomplish what he did accomplish been part of the Reagan revolution in balancing budgets at.
And -- -- -- reform and all those things that he was so engaged in.
I respect that new he has a record that proves that he is able to accomplish so many things that he's promising to accomplish now.
But that you know is the -- Didn't multi trillion dollar question judge is who is best to go up against Obama and contrast to what it is that.
He stands for and what the GOP ticket stands for and that again is why -- like this process to continue.
A presents a greater challenge to president Obama's ideas.
Ron Paul who wants to say no more borrowing by the federal government no spending a nickel more -- -- -- -- in in revenue.
Sound money money backed by gold foreign policy that is an adventurous stick but gives us a sound defense isn't that.
What Republicans are looking for.
It is what I -- trying to do in this.
Raye says you know just an outsider just an observer but a voter you know I do have -- one -- what I'm trying to do judges.
Find out who has that that I DL in the where America should be economically.
But also in a practical sense.
Who can we think the GOP nomination who may go up against that establishment within the party.
And that it's not that it would be a wasted vote if I were to cast a vote for Ron Paul but I want to make sure that.
My one vote really counts and when you look at the numbers when you do the math.
You see that Romney and Newt Gingrich are the two front runners and they eat it it appears today.
It's one or the other it.
Rob hall and you and I can you speak about all that bad.
Benefits what is candidacy does for this country and and his great ideas great record.
And Rick santorum's also but I'm trying to be practical and not so -- even the idealistic that I would think that.
At this point that anybody but either new or Romney will be the nominee.

Thanking you do and how the candidate whose message of --
