My next guest says governor Romney's charge sort of congressman Ryan does more than just put the economy and fiscal issues.
At the forefront of the campaign says -- puts personal and national -- -- and senator.
Joining us now is.
-- law and justice Gerri good to have you with us.
That let you know also -- filed dynamic this brief in support of the lawsuit against the attorney general.
How can we -- -- Johnson about the target your your insight.
Is to what you think the course of events will be in that lawsuit.
Generally what happens this is -- so.
Law enforcement of the contempt order did congress issued the contempt you didn't but there was -- -- -- of the criminal prosecutions from the Obama Justice Department -- that's no great shock so goes to civil content now in the house.
Has brought that action in.
The federal courts and what's gonna happen is one of two things really wanna briefings at the court of course could say give totaled all the documents right now an initial order quickly.
They could say you have to give over anything or they could say this.
They get the parties in the room they say look I would order something to be released here so either worked this out or there's going to be a court order and that's happened a number of these cases.
But I think at the end of the day the Department of Justice got to put up documents.
After all -- they created this problem because they're the ones who follow the statement.
With senator Grassley said that there was no gun walking.
Programs going on and that had to walk that letter back eight months later by saying we think we made a mistake there were inaccuracies yeah.
Very quickly you think they prevail congress.
I think congress does aren't.
But I really do I think that we're gonna be -- documents -- let's turn to our congressman Paul Ryan the president called in the ideological.
There Republican Party.
I don't think he meant that as a compliment.
Well I tell -- that what -- the fact of the matter is he is of the intellectual.
One of the intellectual leaders of this party.
He is a deep think heard this is someone that takes the view of economics.
As a moral issue of about to become a grandfather for the first time congratulate this I don't want my great thank you very much I don't want my.
Grandchild grandson -- laboring with some you know 200000 dollars -- -- debt as its cost of citizenship.
Paul Ryan has does Mitt Romney.
Looks at the economy through both the economic -- and the Marlins it is immoral to continue spending that we can't control.
And what congressman Ryan is going to do I think for this.
A ticket with governor Romney leading it of course is gonna put the economy front and center that's going to be the issue.
And this is gonna have to be some deep thought -- deep question would deep answers.
You've got two very very Smart people think you take a look at Mitt Romney's credentials is -- -- from you know from what his private life and his government -- is a tremendous leader Paul Ryan.
Is like the perfect CFO so you've got picked the classic CEO -- that you couldn't get one any better than Mitt Romney right now -- -- the bad -- got.
Yeah I hadn't thought about as the CEO CFO but I think you're.
I think you're exactly right although listening to -- to the governor talking I think he's also -- aberration operating responsibilities as well.
But let's yeah.
I really think it's interesting to see you what is going on here in new Gallup poll shows -- 4% of Republicans.
Say they're thinking about the election -- -- compared to 61%.
At the same time -- we're looking at poll after poll showing basically a statistical dead heat.
What are -- what are your thoughts about the intensity level.
Right now and whether or not it will -- or whether it will be perhaps determine.
The -- Democrats you don't wanna be thinking about the election right now because what the president have to run on is terrible I mean this is a horrible economic situation we I think you look at some of the global issues we're facing in the Middle East.
By the president's whole idea of what he was gonna do -- this Arab Spring has turned into a nightmare look what happened in Egypt.
Just yesterday with the big big and the new leader from the Muslim brother of getting rid of the military when you knew that was gonna happen.
The president was naive at best -- -- going -- -- -- situations and it should appear Democrat I don't wanna be thinking about the election but if you're a Republican you're excited about it because it says -- We could change this leadership and change the direction of this country and bring America back which is what this is all about at the end of the day.
