The Democratic National Committee is pouncing on Donald Trump's endorsement of Mitt Romney.
Take a lesson -- there.
I like being able to fire people -- services doing.
That booklet firing people want it's unclear whether charts and -- -- Well help or hurt Romney.
But what about a Romney -- alliance I'm not making this -- it can't make it out the front page of the Washington Post reports this morning.
The congressman Paul and governor Romney's camps have begun quietly coordinating.
And such things -- speech timing and other activities.
And these two candidates from opposite ends of the Republican Party talk to each other almost every day.
Joining me now to discuss this potentially paradigm shattering rumor.
Of insider interest we get.
It's fox there's political analyst and my good friend Juan Williams one it's a pleasure while our budget Beers so much -- talking about let's talk about this first is this for real that -- could be some sort of a deal going on between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney you know what's what's telling here is -- right now they are talking to each other.
That during the course of the debates they have been defending each other right and the ultimate goal here is for Ron Paul.
To make himself insinuate himself into all Republican Party politics including at the national convention Tampa.
In terms of speaking time in terms of prominence if if governor Romney is the nominee.
Well what should he do in order to bring into his camp.
The approximately twenty you're 25% of Republicans.
Who are -- whole supporting small government loving.
Libertarians who probably wouldn't vote from that -- is exactly right and remember you got to remember this from Mitt Romney's perspective -- from Mitt Romney's perspective in this is what Ron Paul has been saying to Mitt Romney these people wouldn't be here.
If I wasn't here and these are potentially young libertarian voters who will be -- -- the Republican Party with a wonderful little anecdote in that -- -- story writing about how Ron Paul took Mitch McConnell.
The Republican leader in the senate to an -- in Kentucky.
And there was Mitch McConnell saying who are these people in his home state he had not met the libertarian republic and they were all twenty somethings and they all -- make it -- -- -- senator McConnell and -- don't think that Romney's campaign.
Is somehow -- to -- they realize that Obama's campaign has been tremendously empowered by young people they want some of that energy for the Republican -- all right switching -- our friend and colleague Ed Rollins has been arguing this week and the governor Romney still -- not resonating with conservatives in fact still is being resisted by conservatives who -- how -- a Republican nominee -- the presidency.
If the base of the party.
It's not with him.
It's tough because one of the keys that all the strategists talk about on the Republican side is the so called enthusiasm gap right when you don't have the enthusiasm then really what's the hope but.
That's the situation -- in with Romney that you see -- that even the Florida results where he had an overwhelming victory.
The base is not clear.
In terms of conservatives for -- and the turnout in Florida was 14% percent below where -- for years we have to worry about that he's got to worry big and that's part of the enthusiasm -- -- counting -- is not there and let me -- -- remember.
You had no independent show up in the other states where they say that was a bump in terms of turnout South Carolina Hampshire right independents or quarter of the vote god when Williams always a pleasure I regularly attracts the revolution continues right.
