Rival Republican Senator John McCain expected to announce his vice presidential running mate today Taylor Griffin is senator McCain's national spokesperson.
And joins us now OK -- the rumor just generally just talking about it Sarah pal and governor of Alaska is that going to be the VP nominee.
A law that senator McCain's announcement to make I'm not gonna make that announcement this morning on Fox Business -- much as I'd like to will hear more today from Senator McCain where he'll appear.
With his selected running mate in Dayton Ohio about noon today.
Look important that all right is pollen in Dayton.
I don't had any announcements to make for you on that senator McCain's gonna make those announcements I'm not gonna make any hints I'm not -- I'm not gonna offer any speculation -- -- to say that Senator McCain.
Will make that announcement himself he'll make it today in Dayton Ohio we're really excited about and we're looking forward to it.
Spoke well of well how about this thing can you describe.
Any McCain Sarah pal relationship how closely do they know each other and how closely they want to get I -- I'm not gonna I'm not gonna make any speculation -- had -- Senator McCain ever heard of Sarah pal and the governor of Alaska.
That at the I nearly area aren't they -- this year -- I'm sure -- all right so we got we got something out of there live look at what what would then do you think -- in you know you can tells little bit.
Any vice presidential nominee tell is the news I got to talk to about it.
What would they be looking for where do you think you need some help.
In this can't have both.
That's a great question senator McCain's going to be looking for someone who shares -- spot he's gonna choose someone.
Who -- -- shares his vision for America's vision to put country first above self above party.
And to try to accomplish something for the American people to create more jobs in this country to grow the economy.
To make sure that we keep taxes low and investment so that so that we can -- so that businesses can expand that they can create jobs.
To lower the corporate tax rate so that we make sure that we keep America competitive in the global economy got a second highest corporate tax rate.
In the world right now we need to change that.
All Alyssa last night and -- Senator Obama praising McCain's service but just saying -- -- -- -- it doesn't care about America people just.
Doesn't know because theoretically because he's wealthy and sort of -- although Obama himself made four million dollars last year so much or he's one of the regular people -- there what do you make.
-- -- of attacks on McCain last night.
Well as a very nice speech but it didn't answer the central question about Obama's candidacy.
Senator Obama is that is if someone who gives a beautiful speech and it has end and it it is then it's a is -- is -- figure in American politics but he is not prepared to lead we believe.
He does not have the experience that's necessary to -- to lead this country and to bring us where we need to be and be commander in chief we're not running for speaker achieve.
But the president the United States is commander in chief and Barack Obama is it does not fill that bill so it felt it was -- -- maybe to goose bump factor but not as much on sort of the meat behind the plan.
That's right eloquence alone cannot create jobs in this country eloquence alone it will not answer the -- -- tough decisions that a president have to make when their commander in chief.
And that's what John McCain brings to table he brings that experience he brings that leadership he brings that understanding.
Of how the world works that will allow him to be the right leader for the American people but you know Obama is taking a little bit of a sort of -- non traditional democratic approach by talking about cutting taxes forty calls the middle class defined in the middle class is a whole different interview an argument altogether Taylor.
But how does McCain counter that because you talk about the economy you know that Senator McCain has gotta say to the American people we're gonna help you economically.
According to our surveys that's the most important thing on voters' minds right now.
Absolutely you're absolutely right and that's why senator McCain's economic plan -- designed from the ground up to create jobs.
It was designed from the ground up to empower the job creators and American economy the small businesses.
To encourage companies to locate here and to create jobs.
If we do that.
The American people are going to be better off Senator Obama if you look at his record.
Has a long record of higher taxes he's voted 94 times in support of higher taxes.
He's voted to -- he's voted for -- he's made about in the United States than it would have raised taxes on people making as little as 42000 dollars a year.
And ultimately he is a creature of his own party.
He's he's he's someone who fundamentally has supported higher taxes in the past.
And there's a big contrast -- Senator McCain Taylor Griffin McCain national spokesperson Taylor we appreciate your time today thanks very much.
