And the house.
And not weren't so much about the White House he apparently doesn't have much.
Our confidence in these candidates what's your react well 11 of them could emerge I assume at this point is probably -- we'll know more after Tuesday.
We can give this thing -- at this point in time and it's -- were big enough party that we ought to be able to focus on hold in the House of Representatives in and winning three or four senate seats it's tougher now on the mrs.
snow decided not to run for reelection.
This is the strangest thing I've ever seen.
Here is Romney doing well.
His rhetoric his positions.
All they comport to.
-- -- to the conservative side of the Republican Party.
I mean him right come -- And yet there is a resistance to him emanating from a number of quarters and I'm not hard -- simply be his rivals for the nomination.
That this is a strange.
There's there's this somehow just not a believability and I think the unfortunate thing for.
Governor Romney -- -- never made the transition he should have argued -- my father was a moderate my mother was a moderate.
When I ran in Massachusetts I was a moderate.
I saw those Liberal Democrats in Massachusetts in -- -- over time I became more and more conservative.
As I saw them ways to spend money.
That they just -- great narrative -- -- that he needs to make a narrative.
And the problem is to say have always been a conservative people go back and prove that you -- -- want to -- Ronald Reagan was for FDR.
By the end of his career he was easy going to be -- -- service.
People are willing to make changes if you articulate why and when.
President Obama are calling Georgetown.

I just think it's more appropriate if -- tone down our -- relative to women right now.
This is a debate that we shouldn't be in and I think at the end of the day it's not -- the American public is they want about jobs the economy.
The more we basically insult women whether it's -- -- sort of a spiritual leader of our party.
Or others I think the -- I don't know -- -- applications statements all women he insulted one -- it will.
And I and I think that it's really dangerous word frankly I mean for -- for anyone -- -- and expand to.
-- and entire gender.
And insult against one woman which you can.
It was strong and and that's our -- all I'm saying is right now we're we're fighting for that vote and there's a lot of insensitivity that Republicans are being portrayed as -- and why does your right insensitive.
When a guy and I and I think Russia's -- and exactly correct point here.
-- you why is -- very reaction to the language of a Bill Maher who is also an entertainer.
Just like Rush Limbaugh.
Who is focused on -- -- sit on the politics they should be easy easy -- he's he's not a very good comedian and I think at the end of the day.

We need to be focused on how we get women voters how we attract women voters in the fall you know every little thing here purchase and I and he certainly -- at liberty to that.
But I think it's it is it's just it's just not -- force I think -- that that phrase is not an appropriate trees aren't.
-- rocks on the record right.
