Well I haven't heard any any talk about about anybody molding -- I don't I don't even know if that's really condition that would cause a problem -- I'm very competent.
Need to get out with the -- people do that governor I know it's a different state but but.
Is that an illegal act is that it didn't -- Ronald Reagan saying you know air traffic -- going on strike and they shouldn't have that they should be fired.
Here you know -- act its like when we were in that when I was in the house represented as is the Democrats were gonna deny us any rights on the house floor.
You know we thought about walking out I mean that's -- that's all part of the process I mean what you did go back to -- early -- you know didn't walk out.
I -- -- -- I I can't I can't recall whether we ever walked out I think we thought about it and I don't get worked up about that -- at some point they'll go home.
At some point they'll be votes and that the -- to stay cool you know if you overreact to everything -- you get mad at the other side that doesn't serve you well.
I am -- a servant of the public and I am a servant of the lord.
And in that regard my -- is on raising the lot of people in our state.
So that the families can be stronger so that kids don't have to leave -- lose 13 of our college graduates in the first three years.
After they graduate -- they don't feel they have exciting opportunities here.
If we can get this overall agenda -- and we will get it done Neil.
Ohio is going to be reborn -- the whole country's watching and maybe even those folks in Washington might learn something from us.
Obviously that is still very popular governor coming in even with a lot of these you know it's tough love measures that you've taken.
That you Chris Christie is that in New Jersey it is pretty much the same story although -- -- more popular -- -- But they've -- there is always that reality that eventually that the cuts -- -- hits hit home it it's happens that it.
That is very the new prime minister of England it will be greeted as a rock star when Cameron -- men.
Now some of the cuts that he envisioned -- taken hold them a lot of people don't like what -- what he has proposed in fact his popularity has suffered.
Do you worry about that and what ever sort of know this -- and I -- back and some of your fellow Republicans back.
Is gonna wane as soon as people say no no no don't poor -- Cox.
You know -- -- -- I was chairman of the Budget Committee in 97 when we balance the budget I was there when went through a government shut down I went through a lot.
But when we got our job done.
And I -- -- I was leaving Washington we had a balanced budget we paid down debt we created jobs and people said thank you.
If you -- in this business to gauge of popularity index then you're not being a fine public servant.
My job my vision the formula that I think will work for Ohio has worked throughout American history it's not easy.
I don't get upset with people that want to protest that's their right.
But at the end of the day it is not my job to be worried about you know politics -- I can't get out to the point where.
You know people might ought to listen to me but that's and that's not where we are.
And -- I have to make some choices nailed it in the long run are gonna benefit the state and even if it costs me politically back so be it I got to look at myself in the mirror every day and no one doing the right thing.
Do you worry that these cuts that your orchestrating an -- orchestrated could -- some economists point out governor.
Make a bad thing worse in other words in this environment.
Cutting is -- -- it it it it did produce is -- it produces tough results.
-- first of all we want to we want a reform for example in our state.
It's very different called for senior citizens to stay in their home and get help -- rather forced into a nursing home which cost -- a lot more money.
We believe we can fix that.
We -- we have -- about half of our prison population in the state prison.
For almost a year what we want to do is we want to put them in an area in a setting where they're safe but where we save money.
You know designing a better product at a lower cost that helps the taxpayers.
Is not only good for government it's what works in business there will have to be some cuts but I believe over time.
We will create the job creating environment and I think Ohio once I mean I know they want if they want their families to be stronger -- So -- this is not like this is some new experiment we know what works in America to drive job creation and economic growth.
Governor you know monitor that's in front and one political item -- don't tune the senators indicating he's not gonna run for presents when -- twelve Chris Christie is.
You know -- was -- on a stack of bibles and his latest entered today that is an even anticipated that and actually committed to get one going for him.
And I'm wondering if the number Republicans is sort of reassess it just wanted well landscape of thinking -- -- better shots.
It's what -- sixteen that Barack Obama might be very tough disease and maybe it isn't worth the effort.
Well first -- Chris Christie had no intention I had -- -- know Chris he's a friend of mine we talk.
He has no intention a run for president he wants to be.
You know the governor of New Jersey to tell you good story he was getting hammered one day against one of his friends called him and said it how you doing Chris he said what are you -- -- the governor in New Jersey I'm doing great he was never interested in this Johnstone.
Long shot I mean I've been on the trail I had an exploratory committee it's very tough I think the problem is -- the money get the name ID.
I don't think the cases that people weren't looking at it I think the people are making sobering assessments about their chances and -- -- decisions Johnson is a great United States senator from south what are you continue to be an interior creating some headlines.
No way no how no chance -- -- job my goal is to be able to someday host your show.
