I long for a day. When is sort of having people who go to Washington for one in thirty years who get elected and then when they lose office they stay there and make money as lobbyists are connected to businesses. I think it's actually second -- admit that I realize the red light doesn't mean anything to you because you're the front runner. What -- can only hope that the -- Maloney. Now you're -- and you've been running consistently for years and years and years of this idea that suddenly citizenship showed up in your mind. Just level with the American people even running for at least since 1990s. This is speaker citizenship has always been in my mind. Why shouldn't governor Romney be the nominee of this party I think -- bold and Reagan conservative. With a very strong economic plan. Is a lot more likely to succeed in that campaign. Then a relatively timid Massachusetts moderate. Who even the Wall Street Journal says it had an economic plans so timid and resembled Obama speaker this is your flyers -- are circulating here in New Hampshire it's a very clearly Romney is not electable thank you have a very hard time getting reelected I'm very proud of the record that I have that I think the one thing you can't fool people about New Hampshire about is the record of a governor next door. You have to choose someone who's not been a lifelong politician. Who has not spent a stark and entire career at Washington. And instead has proven time and again at least you have agreed with the characterization that governor Romney is a liar look at him now -- stand right -- clamps or governor bush you -- calmly and directly state. It is your former staff running attack it is your millionaire friends giving -- back and you know similar ads are aren't throw. Just say that straightforward. Courses former -- mind. And of course the people who support me they wouldn't be putting money to pack the support if they were people who support me and with regards to their ads I haven't seen him as you know one of the law. I can't director -- on the speaker. A second. I I can't direct their ads if there's anything in the that's wrong I hope that ticket I hope everything that's wrong stick it out ability to this -- -- and I saw. Said that that you -- forced out of the speakership. That was correct it's said that. That he'd sit down -- Nancy Pelosi and and argued for for a climate change bill that was correct. Tomorrow come up. I'm glad finally on this stage two weeks later you said gee if they're wrong this should take them down and they would of course we sent letters out Johnson. They're warning the stations to just fact checked them before they start running look at the course of this debate.
