If the polls are to be believed that gap is -- lean for McCain in Florida and Ohio but not in Pennsylvania Obama can win.
Without Florida McCain probably -- not.
So what are the keys to Florida Jim Greer is the chairman of the Florida GOP.
Welcome -- happy hours her.
It is really out here in the bar so bear with us a lot of people here in the -- today app.
I'll bring -- root beer which I was there with you yeah likewise -- it's gotten.
Lot of worries about some of these crucial swing state South Florida in particular where you are.
Are you -- sure are you.
A 100% and McCain will win Florida.
Now why you're never sure of anything in the political world it's going to be a very close race there's no doubt about it senator Obama's been spending a lot of money here in the state.
But Senator McCain has a great ground game.
And -- -- -- at the end of the day it's going to be the philosophy.
On how these two men would govern our nation.
And I think here in Florida and across this country when the voters go into the -- And they're gonna look at these philosophies one higher taxes more government in our lives with Senator Obama.
And John McCain has been a conservative.
Always believed in restrain government spending.
The American public is gonna say -- to Senator Obama and they're gonna vote for John McCain.
You know mr.
got a -- -- out on the same thing -- haven't called everybody out on the show politically any time they try and talk about these budgets.
John McCain just voted to send Wall Street 2.2 five trillion dollars of my hard earned money here tell me it's -- conservative.
-- -- -- -- Well there's a big difference you know Senator Obama voted for two.
We have to remember over the last hundred years government has inserted itself in the free market place periodically to get the economy back on its feet.
The difference is -- John McCain as president.
He will make sure the government gets out of the free marketplace where Senator Obama might like -- and wanna stay there because that's just the philosophy of the Democratic Party.
More government more government programs so yes we did -- a lot of money in the Wall Street.
It it was the right thing to -- in my opinion to get us back on our feet but John McCain will get government out of the free marketplace -- Senator Obama will probably keep us there.
Well and Jim and I'm on the follow up on -- questionnaire I think that's part of the you know the problem there in Florida where you have a lot of retirees and where the housing market is just getting.
It that they are saying is seen.
All of this going to Wall Street Wall Street -- where's -- help for main street there's CNET for Alan Kay's been decimated.
I mean how do you get across that masses that McCain.
Is for the economy he's not connected to bush in the GOP.
And then they've brought -- to this point whether they really did or not but people perceive that because that's what we -- for the past several years.
I mean that's a tough but tough -- to go down.
Well I think you said early -- when you're -- you know the money is starting to free up the banks are starting to to get -- they're starting to get it out maybe not as fast as someone like to see.
But at the end of the day the benefit will start trickling down to the up to main street because I think people are recognizing although they didn't like the first idea.
They do recognize most up Floridians and I talked to realize that something needed to be done and I think you're gonna see -- -- progress starting to happen.
I you're gonna see main street starting to get the benefit of what congress did but at the end of the day ultimately.
We've got to let the free market place run its course and John McCain is a man who will make sure that government gets out.
And lets the marketplace do what it needs to do.
Senator Obama is one has always believed every time you talk -- -- song about government programs -- very much.
I think that I'm just gonna say if you have -- gut -- going to an automatic depository.
If senator Obama's elected you may want to change where it goes and just put it to the US treasury.
I think you gotta do what they -- they both just sent two trillion dollars the Wall Street thanks for joining us mr.
Greer I wish I could -- look more.
How you could call anyone who voted for that a conservative.
