Forbes media chairman editor in chief Fox News contributor Steve Forbes Steve good to see -- -- -- let that's been.
You know let let's start -- this business Romney there on the front runner.
Are referring to Santorum -- and economic lightweight.
Is that -- front runner talks.
No and every time you Begin to get traction.
Governor Romney seems to do something to make the racism alive again he's done -- consistently.
Now whether it's cadillacs NASCAR anything else and -- -- called.
-- upon a lightweight begs the question what makes you heavyweight.
How about health care governor where do you stand on the individual mandate how low pay and then look just a couple of weeks it took.
Wants to get him to put out a tax plan.
If 59 points we've discussed got only had ten.
And they finally came with a tax plan he hasn't done -- really on health care.
Energy hasn't got a comprehensive one that dollar so lightweight well okay let's see where your boxing gloves are.
The issue of lightweight and this seems like such a silly sort of -- -- You can have a substantive program that out of the other's okay.
At least talk like they and and below what -- -- -- candidate should do is how would Reagan.
The demeanor Reagan known can be Reagan what -- -- would he have when you're going after an opponent keep that in your head.
It seems to me it would certainly be helpful Puerto Rico.
Santorum are campaigning says that everybody should speak Spanish and English.
It was should be the official language.
Romney responds we're saying no one should be forced to speak English.
Give us your take on that and.
What -- all relates to statehood.
And why that issues coming up now I don't know why Puerto Rican voters have consistently voted for sixty years.
The continue of the commonwealth status -- so they have their citizenship but they have their own language they have their own self government.
And they that's that's what they like there's a certain -- it is what.
I want to -- it but yes -- in all of this and that.
That there would be any question America.
Speaks English -- it just doesn't seem like that big a deal.
But you know so be it if it if it is judged to be that by folks in Puerto Rico.
But it seems a little bit of a distortion by governor -- it does.
Well and Santorum I mean in terms of statehood if they want statehood which is different from their commonwealth status what would what would be the conditions.
And but consistently by referendum.
Open voting honest voting they vote -- percent for independence.
38 to 3530%.
-- statehood and over 50%.
To continue the way they're going and got I think one could argue economically at least a pretty good deal with the current construction.
And they've got a governor who is pro growth one wants to reduce spending and taxes program.
This president doesn't appear to be he does -- -- look like the beneficiary of an economy that's showing resilience solid traction growing.
Jobs numbers improving.
The what will be the impact on they -- come November 6.
Well if you think going -- -- superhighway from twenty miles an hour to forty miles an -- constitution was a NASCAR racer go ahead.
But I think.
In contrast with say what Reagan had in the 8384 in the economy it's not -- three or 4% but 8%.
When as a people pointed out there months weren't creating six to 800000.
Jobs a month.
And compared to what this is after three years of recession or semi recession.
You -- -- run on -- like a baseball team raising its average from 10200.
Not gonna get to the World Series.
I get the feeling you're still gonna vote Republican Steve Forbes for extra bidder for your good.
