Governor Romney coming on the fire -- comments he made last week about the public sector.
He wants another stimulus he wants to hire more government workers he says but it more firemen more policeman more teachers.
Did he not get the message of Wisconsin the American people -- as -- -- cut back yeah.
And help the American people.
Joining the company is Romney campaign advisors -- -- who joins us now that's -- thanks so much for being with his relentless.
What what's going on -- -- -- what did the what did governor Romney mean to say what was he actually saying what was he implying -- Well no actually believes that -- he was down kind of putting it down cast on firefighters and public workers certainly I think absolutely this is.
Obvious keep the campaign distraction by the about it campaign I think they'd want to divert attention from the but the fact that.
President Obama's own assertion that the economy is just fine -- the private sector is just five.
That is why if there weren't -- -- and these were outraged I think of course Mitt Romney was talking about.
The distinction is that exists between he and President Obama at as far as our approach to handling this economy you know 18.
Big government approach to solving the issues that we have a very real issues that we face or do you want a more.
-- -- The common sense approach today to addressing you just wanted to you have to look at some of these areas where we see a lot of a lot of cost I hear that out but I know that -- mean -- -- -- -- Doesn't it would stick -- you giving the candidate candidate training.
Because arguably when you say things like that I mean you're just giving ammunition to your opponents when we say things like I enjoy firing people that -- I think it was taken out.
Absolutely -- -- -- it's always in a presidential campaign is always going to be taken out of context and run against you for have up sir can you have.
Can you nailing down a bit more Kenya shop put him -- so that doesn't make back economists like are you giving him back kind of training.
Well -- that I think when you when we continue to look at what the real issue is and that is again the economy to one trillion dollar stimulus first stimulus that didn't work.
And the fact is that what Mitt Romney was talking about is not it acting a second stimulus not cars -- the taxpayers trillions more.
-- how we address that issue now to media I look at that he wants to talk about missed dad's sandy do gas and things like that they're.
You know what I want you know and by the way they do want the Americans aren't they Americans and above -- -- what the issues aren't the media they are the media's so whether you like them or not you better learn how to deal with them now -- another criticism of what exactly.
-- saying -- included people who want Mitt Romney to run he's running a Rose Garden sort of salad campaign.
You know in the it is that.
Gonna work is that ultimately -- -- -- that he really need to give it more engaged.
But -- look I spent the bulk of my early career in the media -- I understand the concept.
You know what immediate need to do -- have to do but at the same time I think at the end of the day if polling is any recent polling is any indication president.
Obama's numbers are going down Mitt Romney.
-- looking favorable and I think the and his message is conveying getting through to the American people I think the fact that.
When you don't go out to these real world scenarios he's -- -- situations like he's doing on this bus tour where he's going to.
Into the community talking to real people face to face every day outside -- the hype on TV and all of that in -- And look I understand the media is a powerful place you have to get your message across that's essential.
But at the end of the day I think it's real people wanna hear from the candidate himself and he does not -- very well when he goes out and conveys this -- I tell unless they're government and less -- yes my parents Monica Crowley great to see you long I I know what he was getting -- he was trying to get -- to the point.
It to the point that the public and private sectors have been thrown completely out of balance by this administration and to Barack Obama.
And to his cell -- man in the congress government can never be too big or spend too much so I understand what -- sank.
Perhaps may -- don't you guys could you get more traction on the point by point into Wisconsin the American taxpayer there the American taxpayer.
Across the country is pissed.
And so we're we're talking about expanding government even government employee he's like policemen firefighters it does have an emotional pull on the voter actually you guys have been out -- very strongly making the point that the government sector now is completely out of control.
What that is the point and and and I think again you know what hit the -- business owners like myself I happen to have a small business I think when you talked everyday people all of us now.
You can't be an American right now not know someone who has not been hurt by this economy.
-- when you look at a record that Mitt Romney has had a four point seven unemployment when he left office to eight point.
Eight point 1% plus employment -- 4048 months of job lock -- up.
You know unemployment for forty straight months.
8% kind of wondering I think people we all know someone who was hurting right now and I think that conveys.
When we go -- these communities we talked to real people I think the -- -- -- it's gonna be up to the pundits obviously to decide.
What gap that's gonna stick at the end of the day I'm glad I left smear it's gonna be it Pharmerica is such -- when I go outside I remember an election I gotta have a -- Would and is this absolutely right this moment Tara I think that is present Obama who is losing this election as opposed to Mitt Romney who is winning.
But thanks -- -- he has more to prove absolutely epic got a tougher job right now okay.
Think Tara thanks so much for being with -- I do hope that you'll Cummins is again -- we didn't -- absolutely no not at all -- -- -- --
