But -- more companies bleeding jobs.
Former Republican Minnesota governor -- is says you know what the Obama administration's look at its own record and he's here with us tonight.
So yes -- what do you make of these statements coming out of the white house of that being capital.
Well I think it shows and it's another example of a president any vice president -- don't understand don't respect don't appreciate.
Free enterprise and really don't understand the -- -- the main pathway for people's -- -- is whether they have a job and they're doing things to make it more difficult.
For jobs to be provided in this country they don't get -- they -- don't have a clue they've been government.
You know involved in government their whole life first political activists.
If you go talk to the people who provide jobs in this country they say get the government's burdens lighter not have your -- Obama doesn't understand that never has had a chance it's failing to know governor he'd tried if.
Court we've got Democrats such as Ed Rendell Harold Ford.
And we also have Cory Booker the mayor of Newark basically dialing back on what the White House has been saying about private equity this comes also at a time when the president visited New York City to to accept private equity money from Blackstone in the form of donations.
But that question for our viewers out there tonight is this we've got gross domestic product the growth of the economy flat lining at 2%.
We basically have two things and do voters' minds is it because it DC policies or is it because of a record historic housing credit crack up.
What do you say.
Well the Congressional Budget Office the CBO which is nonpartisan came out with a new report essentially predicting recession.
In 2013 again if we don't change course.
And of course that -- on under President Obama is a collision course with a very bad outcome.
We have 23 million people unemployed or underemployed he's failed in this regard again we've got to get somebody in who understands economy how to get a move and that's Mitt Romney.
You know we've got up polls coming -- where it's a pretty tight horse race there.
You know pretty much neck and neck and you know that disapproval ratings for the president's handling of the economy.
You know what is going up and you know I see the president -- himself into a corner he could say that look I inherited this recession.
Every president votes since FDR can say the same thing and by the way we have at -- basically elected officials have been in public office since the Nixon administration.
It certainly look at Joseph Biden has been around since the Nixon administration Seles Charlie Rangel and it's been that since the -- administration and you know Nancy Pelosi Harry Reid so I don't see how the president gets around.
Running away from his track record won't running away from his own economic record and instead we have this whisper campaign impugning the character -- You know we saw that in 2008 when you know basically the Obama campaign went after Hillary Clinton right -- went negative on her record -- her for disclosures about Bill Clinton's.
Wealth and wealth creation what do you make of the what you see coming forward.
Well as you put your finger on two important things one is the hypocrisy many examples of it but when you criticized private equity and and you go take money from -- on the very night you want your attack.
And secondly of a lack of leadership real change requires real courageous leadership this is a president who basically tries to -- hands of his failures.
Point back nearly four years to the Bush Administration.
And I would say quit being a hypocrite and quit whining and -- Become a courageous -- where is President Obama on one of the pressing issues of our time how to reform and save our entitlement programs for example you can't find it.
He ducks bobs and weaves and all the tough issues kicks the can down the road we need a president who's got the fortitude in the courage in the experience and executive function.
To -- that's Mitt Romney one last quick -- If you go talk to people who provide jobs in this country from the small entrepreneur -- to the mid size larger.
Companies in this country.
They also -- a little differently but they all basically say.
Either the taxes are too high health care costs are too high energy costs are too high permitting and regulatory costs are too -- -- -- and they say get the government off my back.
And President Obama -- loads on more and more burden more and more discouragement it's the exact wrong prescription for what.
Needs to happen and governor -- turn quickly to what's going on in Wisconsin because we have -- the historic moves happening just today in fact in the recall election with what's going on.
The governor Scott Walker turns out that it looks like the Democrats are not possibly going to win here.
What are the implications here with what's going on Wisconsin.
Well I was with Governor Walker in campaign with -- -- Wisconsin now most of the day yesterday -- with them again tomorrow.
First of -- he did what he said he's gonna do people respect that -- number one number two the reforms work.
People are now seen the sky didn't fall in facts -- money has been same and is being ploughed back into things like reduced property tax bill and he's.
Getting criticized for he's getting criticized for not creating the -- -- 50000 jobs you promised.
Big city so he's not gonna -- -- jobs overnight right.
Right and he's been promised set over his first Germany's net you know not even two years into its first Germany does now have positive job growth.
In Wisconsin so that's headed in the right direction.
You know governor -- should -- by the way just -- policy implication here for a recall.
Should any governor be recalled over policy differences or should elected officials be recalled because of misconduct -- -- -- come down that.
What was the author of the recall law and Minnesota are co author of -- and -- we took the position that you shouldn't be recalled the clean elections like she did something wrong in other -- malfeasance in office.
But that's the beauty of these laboratories of democracy in each state can have their own approach Wisconsin's got their approach but for my personal opinion.
I think recall should be available in -- usual circumstances where somebody's done.
Something particularly wrong misbehavior malfeasance not just because you disagree on a policy save that for the next election alright governor collective thank you semester attacks and -- are really appreciate it.
