Okay. Now this is not the first time you gave your vote of confidence at this time I got to take it. To the White House. It three years. -- duly elected President Obama told America that congress approved his plan to borrow nearly a trillion dollars. He would hold unemployment below 8%. It has the men below 8% sense. This week he's been trying to take a bow. For eight point 3% unemployment not so fast there's -- present. -- -- And economic crisis come upon us because we had too much government too much spending too much yet much -- taxation too much regulation. Too many wars and that it. They try to solve the problems with doing exactly the same thing it's not going to work and that's why we have to change our direction. Let me just start and -- -- -- one story that came out today is someone that I just wanna put to rest hopefully for the next few months. I am a candidate for president states. I will be a candidate for president states we will go to Tampa. I also believe that the vast majority Republicans across the country I'm gonna want an alternative. To a Massachusetts moderate.

And who ranks third from the bottom in creating jobs in the four years he was governor. -- not a household name like Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich. We had potential to grow.

We still believe in the America that is a land of opportunity. And a big bit of freedom. We've -- in America that challenges each of us to be bigger and better than ourselves. This election we must fight for the America we love. We don't live in America. Thank you so much about.
