I'm planning on winning in Arizona -- A lot of delegates there and I'll pick up a lot of delegates in Michigan weather wry -- or not I'd like to way to Michigan obviously I think I will.
But I'll probably end up tonight with two or three times as many delegates coming out of tonight.
As anybody else in the race so that's a victory we gotta get delegates -- keep on battling had.
All right so you're referring to factor in Arizona you win there -- -- all the delegates even if you were to split.
Michigan you'd take you have to delegates it's a big night for you understandable you know the story line goes.
He can't win the state that is father governor and -- three consecutive terms as from year the roots are here you're in deep trouble.
You don't wanna.
You know people try to write a narrative of that nature.
You know I -- I am -- understanding that that's what they're gonna try to do but frankly I'm planning and winning in Michigan and if for some reason I don't.
I got by far the most delegates I got a lot of states ahead we got some states we're gonna wind down the road Super Tuesday we got some good states -- are going to be in our column.
And I expect to get they had to get the delegates I need to win and you know about it if I'd bet big word turned out by Massachusetts where I've lived for the last forty years.
Were served as governor that -- middle harder which.
Flames still the president even today governor speaking to the UAW -- -- in Washington.
So the Europe but in our union stands more to the point you're anti rescue stands.
Is already coming back to bite -- once -- -- what the president said a couple of hours ago.
You've got spokesman while the real problem is what we really -- -- -- what the workers that they all made out like bandits.
The standards of this job that's a -- you don't want.
-- -- -- Well they he sure has quite some rhetoric on there.
And and frankly what should have happened in the auto industry is it should have gone through a managed bankruptcy process.
And if government was help was needed to help them get out of that bankruptcy process that was something I said in my out that I was open to.
But the idea of writing checks to the add to the company's that was something I opposed.
And the idea of putting his hand on the scale of justice and saying we're gonna give a disproportionate share of the companies to the UAW.
Look we gotta follow -- this country we either believe in the rule of law where we believe in the rule of cronies.
And crony capitalism is bad here as it is around the world the president was to simply wrong.
In the way he manage this process.
The governor do you think it even if you blow Michigan now tonight.
The -- it might be a pyrrhic victory that this comes back to haunt you in the general.
Election polls depending on non Google -- you you trust have you -- the president anywhere from eight to twelve points in the state.
That it's almost to give me now that this again is a lost cause for further Republican nominating -- about.
Well I I can't tell you that that it may well be true that that you're better not to tell the truth but that's not something -- subscribe to.
My own view is that you you do tell the truth and and but when when I was asked very early on when the auto executives flew to Washington.
And asked for tens of billions of dollars in a bailout I said that's the wrong way to go.
They need to go through -- managed bankruptcy process and then if they need help that's a different matter the president he disagreement -- -- could be -- the UAW set don't know you can't possibly go through a managed bankruptcy would guess what.
I turned out to be right they were wrong the companies did have to go through managed bankruptcy and that's why they've come out stronger thank heavens that finally happened should happened earlier than a dead.
Let's talk a little bit about do you it.
Ever seek out popular conservative radio talk show host -- today.
My colleague Sean Hannity or for that matter Rush Limbaugh or maybe even -- and that.
You know I've I've just done that Sean Hannity show about half an hour ago.
Had what data met with with Rush Limbaugh.
Maybe three or four weeks ago so you guys I -- do we just with with such Hugh -- recently had his show -- Yeah I've I'm very anxiously.
On the shows with a number of effective date how -- governor -- that they've held.
But we read anything and we're now.
But -- I don't know that I do I'm I'm pleased to have the great support of a lot of leading conservatives and colds are being one of those -- the top of the list that's true.
-- -- get him out of -- touch on this doubt thirteen thousand qwest in and out of business.
So many argued that it would be a vindication of the president's policies and the combat former lows in the Dallas.
The you know early 2009 I think -- seven thousands governor and that we -- -- -- where we were but we'd be in the right direction what do you make of that.
You know I know the president's gonna take credit for the economy getting stronger.
Every recession has ended.
After recession the economies recover in this case the recession was deeper than it needed to be because of its policies.
It's taken longer to recover as a result of his policies.
And for him to suggest that as things get better he's responsible for that would be like me saying that I'm responsible for the Red Sox would of the World Series sorry.
He hasn't got anything to do -- that this is this is the the result of hard working men and women ought to put doors innovators businesses.
Reinvesting excess inventory being washed to the system loans being written down there's a process that occurs after recession we're going through it.
We're coming out of it but this president has not helped I can't think of a single piece of legislation.
That he authored that made it easier for our economy to come back you go through -- Mumbai I want all of them have made it harder for this economy to recover.
But he's -- argue that's the wind it is back right and I I guess there's been talk to the point of gas prices.
They've been rising on many big critical his keystone decision that that is stymied this others argue it could be all -- and Saber rattling whatever the case.
We seen yes prices -- dramatically.
What would you do as president to ease that.
Well gas prices of course are a function of of long term decisions made by a president and by a nation.
In this case this president has has held off on deep sea oil drilling.
He's held off on our capacity to get out natural gas through fracking technology.
He's made it very difficult to mine coal in the use coal and of course he made a -- -- strange decision with regards to the Keystone Pipeline.
The right decisions would be to open up our reserve student -- the drill and -- drill offshore.
The development says you can't drill -- way he's -- again earlier way out of it.
I -- what do you -- well of well and of course you can with enough time.
He can't do it tomorrow morning of course about -- made the right decisions at the beginning of his administration.
Why the the fact that America was bringing on stream major sources of energy would have an impact on world.
Energy prices and prices right here at all ultimately we of course are affected by what's happening to global energy prices and supply and demand.
At the same time.
We can because somewhat insulated from those swings.
If we have our own supply in this country on this president's frankly blocked our supply -- book he's gonna try very hard.
To get out of this.
But a guy who says -- -- oil from Canada has a lot of explaining to do.
