Why Paul Ryan is the best VP choice and how he'll guarantee a win for Romney
Sat, 11 Aug 2012|
Republican Mitt Romney anointed Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, an ardent conservative and devoted budget cutter, as his vice presidential running mate on Saturday, and the two men immediately embarked on a tour of campaign battleground states vowing to defeat President Barack Obama and repair the long-ailing U.S. economy. America is "a nation facing debt, doubt and despair," and a transformative change in leadership is vital, Ryan declared to a flag-waving crowd in the first moments after Romney introduced him as his partner for the fall campaign.

MW RK -- this is. Is -- -- from -- Washington. It's a special. Mitt Romney has selected his running mate -- this. Congressman. Paul Ryan from Wisconsin. And I have to tell you and I think commit just may have won him the election without big. -- -- Electrified. The Tea Party movement. It has electrified Republicans across the country. I think it's going to appeal to independents. And moderates to conservative Democrats. It is a bold pick. For dates. Here in Washington we were hearing whispers. That Romney had a very short list. In his heart of hearts he wanted to go with Tim Pawlenty. Tim Pawlenty and he our friends. Pawlenty is a strong mature governor. Somebody that is a safe pick. Somebody in many ways who is a Romney Cologne and establishment Republican. However. Does. Romney was being hit in the polls. Day after day after day and Obama and now starting to widen his small lead. With dirty Harry Reid. Coming on the senate floor and viciously smearing Romney -- somebody who's a criminal any tax cheat. We've -- out coming out from priorities USA. Led by a White House staffer with close intimate ties to the Obama inner circle. I essentially accusing Romney of having killed a man's wife. Because he was laid off and she eventually got cancer and he didn't have the health insurance that they care of his wife. So they called him a murderer they call them a criminal they called -- a tax cheat. They threw mud after mud after mud hoping that it would stick. Romney looking to change the conversation. Looking to change in essence. The whole cycle of this election. And elevated from a small. Dirty campaign. Maybe did dirty just campaign in modern American history. Now once that elevated to -- big election that will be fought. On big issues. And my friends. What is the big issue of our time what is the central issue of our time. Is this. Where there we will become like Greeks. Are we now going to -- gold down the road that Obama and his Chicago political gangsters have put us on. In which with TARP crushing deficits are crushing debt are out of control entitlement government programs. Massive permanent high unemployment. Are we going to become Europe and Greece. We all this great country. Become a bankrupt second rate country. Or will it be the America that you and I grew up in. We will traditional America rice from the ashes again. And for years on Capitol Hill. And I'm being very candid now. People often ask me you cover politics -- you know people on both parties. Do you know any honest politicians I honestly say to them. No contrary to myth there are some one more start corrupt yes most are either corrupt. Or fame hungry and frankly stupid I'll be very candid with you you have no idea how stupid literally out intellectually vacuous. Many politicians are. But there are a handful. That are not changed genuine patriots. That are not just genuinely men and women of principal and character. But they actually are brilliant people who deeply care about this country and I'm telling you. That Paul Ryan is desk clean as the driven snow. This man has no skeletons in his closet he is a very devout Catholic. He's a sincere family man. He is a sincere conservative. He loves Wisconsin. He loves his hometown he loves the midwest and he loves this country. And for years. Beginning at the end of the bush administration and continuing under Obama. He has been pounding that table warning. That we are headed off a financial and economic cliff. We are going broke. These trillion dollar deficits. These massive tax hikes. This huge inflation. This economic collapse that we're about to face. There is a reckoning -- You cannot be spending this kind of money. In this kind of a power mad drunken orgy to buy votes as Obama has been doing for the last three and a half years. Without -- eventually. Having to pay the piper. I eventually. The bill comes to do. And Paul Ryan has been saying. If we don't reform Medicare. If we don't reform Medicaid. If we don't reform welfare. If we don't start cutting spending. And more than dot. If we don't unleashed a private sector and free enterprise system in America to do what it's always done. Which is to generate jobs and create the most prosperous successful country in the history of the world we're gonna be like Europe. We're living beyond our means. On the verge of collapse. Are we going to become the united states of Argentina. He embodies. A different world. A different path being different vision. -- -- -- Spending restraint. Any government that lives within its means but more than that he believes in and -- in -- society and in America. Where you can rise up by your bootstraps. We're through your sheer hard work and dedication. And capabilities. You can rice and be successful he believes in the America of the American dream. And by Romney picking Paul Ryan. He has now made this an election essentially based on three choices. Europe. Or America. Capitalism. Or socialism. Bankruptcy. Or recovery. Romney. And Ryan and represent to rescue and recovery. And that's why I believe and I have been urging him for months. Under a lot of criticism from other journalist Jeff you don't know politics. Jeff he's got to go with Marco Rubio he's got to appeal to Hispanics Jeff he's got to go with Chris Christie's a popular guy. He's got to go with -- Rob Portman Rob Portman didn't get a more higher always gotta go with Tim Pawlenty needs -- Minnesota. Jeff what is Paul Ryan gets you okay may be Wisconsin big deal. I should know you don't understand. Paul Ryan. Will put them back bone into Mitt Romney. Paul Ryan will eviscerate Joseph Biden in debate. Paul Ryan will take apart obamacare. Paul Ryan. Will be the articulate. Champion the intellectual. Leader. That the Republican Party so desperately needs and craves. It is now -- 12. Punch that I think can deliver a knockout blow against Barack Hussein Obama. Romney has the experience. Romney is a businessman. Romney has the executive governing leadership skills. And. Paul Ryan has the brains and more importantly the guts and the courage. To implement the reforms and make the cuts. And make good decisions. That will break America great again my friends. We now have a Reagan 92 kept. They may not have Reagan's charisma. Yes -- are essentially two accountants. Wine is not the most electrifying speaker Mitt Romney is not the most electrifying speaker but when you were going broke. When you have driven. The corporation that is America into the ground. As Obama and his socialist political fog around him have done. The poll sees that Harry Reid's. And all of the others that surround this criminal out of control administration. You need to dice. Who can now bring and rescue took a bankrupt corporation. That is America. Mitt Romney show leadership. He showed character and he showed more important seriousness and conviction. This is one of the most important decisions a president can make or who will be his number two because god forbid. If the president dies in office. Or if he shot out or assassinated. And his number two will become the next president of the United States. And I look at Paul Ryan. And I look at his youth. And I look at these beautiful family and I look at his resume and his experience and his years in congress. And more than that I look at his patriotism. And I see here is a man. An easy up and coming emerging leader. Of the Republican party. Of the conservative movement and of middle America. And here was Paul Ryan. In his own words. Saying what this election is about. And why he decided to join -- Romney in the campaign of his life or -- rolling baby. My dad died when I was young he was good and decent man. There are few things you would say that I've just always stuck with me he'd say son. Fury the part of the problem or part of the solution. Well regrettably. President Obama has become part of the problem and Mitt Romney. -- -- -- -- -- -- You know it's funny my grandfather used to tell me the same think that's all eastern European wisdom. My grandfather would often say he wouldn't say -- say grandson. Grandson. You're either part of the problem we're part of the solution stop whining because he often taught me that don't whine. If you have a problem in your life you fix it. If you keep whining your part of the problem we've had a whiner in chief now for the last three and a half years for three and a half years. Everything that's gone wrong in America somebody else's -- You combat and that that that that third -- constitutional law professor Barack Obama come counseling on all. The economy's not doing as well they said he would do because we've had bad tsunamis. We've Qaeda and nuclear meltdown and Japan's. A we've had a bad weather we've had. A war in Libya we've had our earthquakes around the world we -- eurozone in crisis it's everybody's fault but he is. All whine whine whine whine it's no Republicans they keep obstructing me. Even though they've controlled he and his party controlled congress for the first two years of his presidency completely -- house the senate and the White House. They passed everything he won -- the past and everything you said was gonna be Don didn't happen. Unemployment is not under -- percent it's been over 8%. He said we'd be at 67%. Economic growth were -- ones we find. Well we're sinking like a stone. Our economy has stalled. By friends well going forward we're going backwards but it's everybody else's fault. It's Mitt Romney's whole. It's Sarah Palin's fault it's John Boehner is -- it's always everybody else's fault it's never his fault. Now we have to mature adults. Who are going to talk to the American people and treat them as mature adults. And so my question to you is a very simple one listeners a 6:8 AM WRK. Help. Do you support the pick of of of of Paul Ryan has Mitt Romney's vice presidential choice. Do you think it will be it will help me to win the election. Personally. How do you feel about the Paul Ryan choice was it a good -- Or do you think Romney should have gone with somebody else 617. 2666868. Is the number. This is Jeff corner from The Washington Times and will be right back after this break. We look at one another success with the pride not resents me. Because we know. That is more Americans work hard. Take risks succeeded and more people will prosper our communities what benefit and individualized video with good. America is more than just -- -- stuff. America. Is and I. The only. Country founded on -- the idea. Our rights. Come from nature and god not from government. -- amen brother. You had me how to alone you had me at how -- Jeff corner from The Washington Times. Here on six AEA MW RK no. 6172666868. Is Paul Ryan a good pick for Mitt Romney I wanna hear from you Robert thanks for holding. Welcome to go to our -- Brought her bed at the right spirit Bryant hit the right pick up and it now obviously without adult stage -- -- Eked one out 328 they get it going afraid I screw it -- the right direction not don't always what do you -- Not -- I agree with you Robert I think it's a magnificent picked. I think Romney unless he makes a huge gaffe has won the election by picking Paul Ryan and I'll tell you why. He's gonna win the midwest. He's gonna win Wisconsin he's gonna win all of the upper midwest he's gonna win Minnesota mark my words he's gonna win Michigan. Because his middle western values. Are exactly with the people in the heartland are looking for and remember Wisconsin with Scott Walker. All of the pundits said all Scott Walker's a goner Scott Walker's gonna lose the referendum. And let me tell you what everybody was gone. -- was telling me they said Jeff. The media didn't understand this. We are looking at what's happening in Europe we hear on the news we read in the papers and we don't want our state and our country to be like Europe. And that's why we box we bought an bought into and supported Scott Walker's reforms and I'm telling you. That's with Paul Ryan is gonna do. He is gonna electrified the middle class he's gonna bring on board the working class while voters he's gonna bring on board a lot of states that weren't gonna go for Romney. This choice is a master stroke I believe Romney just clinched the election with the what say you just one man's opinion. John. Welcome to WRKO my friend. All sorry Paul -- uranium for a where there are people yeah sorry Paul go ahead shoot. -- -- We -- Paul only there were all here. Hello OK we lost ball. Dana thanks for holding what you're on WRKO. -- Hi Dana you're on WRKO. Don't go hi Dana. Not okay maybe Europe who knows. This this could be a plot. I won't always I'm just thinking out loud now this could be Elizabeth Warren chief warrants. A campaign surrogates saying non all we don't want to the people of Massachusetts -- get to electrified by Paul Ryan does could resonate towards Scott Brown. Let's come in here and a mess up the phone lines -- WRKO. Let's not let the people of WR scale have they're saying we can't have that I mean who else. I mean anything is possible -- and his campaign. I mean literally mark my words okay mark my words. I'm looking at a picture right now on the Drudge Report of. Paul Ryan's beautiful family. Wonderful wife three children got a daughter -- silence. I feel so sorry for that family I look at them with their wholesome mid western faces. Paul Ryan is there with the -- with the Green Bay Packers on it and a baseball cap of Wisconsin university. They have no idea. Who the hell. That they are gonna put their family through. They have no idea. They're vicious attacks. That the liberal mainstream media and the democratic surrogates are gonna unleash upon Paul Ryan and Paul Ryan's family. I guarantee you I guarantee you. They're gonna go after his. Family back. Anything that Paul Ryan may have done in college or may have done in high school. They're gonna see if he was a bullied they're gonna see if he ever tried marijuana. They're gonna go after the wife they're gonna see if there was any marital problems. They're gonna go after the kids they're gonna look at the -- his grades they won't look at Obama's grades but they're gonna look at Paul Ryan's grades mark my words and Paul -- kids -- grapes. They're gonna wanna find out ever any possible dirt that they can throw on this man I -- bit. I guarantee -- there are already. Sharpening their knives to destroy this man why because they can do with his arguments. When he eviscerate obamacare they have no response. When he says has the debt not gone up under Obama they have no response. When he says are these deficits not unsustainable they have no response. When he says Medicare is about to go bankrupt we have to reformat or Rose Bowl system is gonna collapse senior citizens will have nothing to take care of them when they get older they'll have more health insurance what do they do last year. They around one of the most despicable I'd like ebersol. If you know if you've seen it -- YouTube it literally it's a guy. Pushing grandma I'm a wheelchair and they're going through way out of forest and any portion is our right off the cliff. Because Paul Ryan wants to save Medicare and make -- a premium support system essentially a voucher system where you get 141500. Dollars if you're a senior citizen and say -- Let me buy the best health insurance for me in my family. That's not on all that's killing Medicare that's throwing grandma off a cliff that's killing grandma. Mark my words they're gonna be coming out now out after Paul Ryan they told people he wants the kill grandma. That's going to be the line of attack already they're gonna come out with it. I mean this is this is the nature of the Obama regime and that's the nature of the campaign. Do you think Paul Ryan is up to the job was he a good pick and a thanks for holding your on the W. RTL. I know why Leo I'm good how are you I'm very I'm very excited about this thick. I think it period going to be incredible all I think a road -- Spain -- me and hopefully don't go out that these guys because. I mean they'll go after them with whatever they can get like lieutenant. I'm just curious why. What what is it about Ryan that you personally like why do you think it's a good -- well first of all he's done intelligent articulate conservative. I mean -- -- that that that part and that we want in that White House. I mean this country I -- born in a different country -- non US. You know what I'm born here I agreed to not wanna go down there -- -- our European. Excellent panel will set 6172666868. George. You're on WRKO. Yes. I'm conservative Republicans so I agree with you on issues. But I I don't like this take it all I think it's a disaster and I think -- -- confident the election. Why not so you are tight wad because this sort of it's sort of the issue being -- -- -- obamacare which were winners for Republicans. The issue now I'm gonna become social security and Medicare social Lucic for Republicans. You can't control government spending if you don't win the election the -- -- appeared to -- deal lectured and this is not an all out. Obama authority that they do vote if they think that the old people poke at what's left. Okay George. -- you make some very good points and let me just reinforce -- -- saying I disagree with you but I want to reinforce which are saying because this is exactly. The argument that was made for weeks by a beltway insiders inside the Republican I know inside the Republican Party I know this for a fact. They were telling Mitt Romney exactly this they were saying you're gonna turn the election from a referendum on Obama's stewardship of the economy. And you're gonna make Paul Ryan the issue. His budget plan his reforms for Medicare his reforms for social security and they will scare grand mall. The Democrats will scare senior citizens and you will lose the election because about. I disagree and I'll tell you why George. We are now facing economic and financial collapse within two years in literally in two years and Paul Ryan's gonna explain as the American people. We will be Greece our debt load will be sold hard. You thought our credit rating is already downgraded. Its nothing to what's gonna be in two to three years. What is driving this debt. These are -- controlled entitlements. Social Security but especially Medicare and Medicaid. If we don't reform those two programs. We York post we are finished. It's not a question of whether you agree or disagree with Paul Ryan it's literally this. Do you want to Medicare to exist in some form. Or do you want the whole thing but collapsed because that's what's happened in Greece that's what's happened in Portugal that's what's happening in Spain and happening in Italy. We are two to three years away from dot. By getting Paul Ryan on the ticket. What Mitt Romney is saying is this I am now offering America a choice. Socialism. And collapse in Roland. Or capitalism. And spent and potentially rescue and recovery it's really that simple will you give me a mandates. To put America's economic house in order if we don't have that debate. Even if you win the election. You cannot touch those entitlements. That's why the Ryan plan is a blueprint to save America. It is the blueprint that will destroy Obama. And expose him for the economic fraud and you literate but he is and that's why I think Paul Ryan is a magnificent back but just one man's opinion. 6172666868. Mike thanks for holding welcome to WRKO. You are my hero. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I think what we're orient -- about. This will be the first generation at least with children. Welcome the opportunity. And all that generation. That was before the as far as I'm concerned jet -- -- shameful legacy. That we really like it over the last opportunity. What let's hope and -- -- opportunity. All right and there's a magna president -- These are hesitant. People brilliant and they've got the answer for these people I just wanna say what they purify it a couple of rob people Republican talking about. -- racist statement to make but he couldn't pick the white guy. I imagine ship replied that we shouldn't pick the black guy have a woman they're being me and I disagree but the fact of the matter is. Situation is in that regard but he people who say you couldn't pick the white guy the country club white guy had a scary that. All I -- that magnificent it. -- like speculate which -- orchard what you -- future if we can only get together and -- -- they're right it. Back -- my -- took the words right out of my mouth excellent call -- a first of all look you're completely right. I've been hearing this now for weeks that Mitt Romney has depict. -- minority. Yes typical woman he asked to pick a Latino only asked to pick an African American. Because he'll come across is racist we don't want to white guys on the ticket. Since when do we judge people in America by the color of their skin. Martin Luther King said it best you judge people by the content of their character not the color of their skin. I believe any color blind society. I believe in the best person for the job now you look at Paul Ryan. He's been very anti thesis of the country club Republican he wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth in fact it's the opposite. He lost his father when he was a young man he was barely -- -- he was in high school was barely a teenager lost is about. He comes from up or working lower middle class family. How to work a study hard everything you succeed in his life he did basically on his own nobody gave him I hand out. Nobody out again animal welfare check nobody stood he wasn't even he was -- with millions of dollars in his bank account he wasn't a trust fund baby. So he's one of the most brilliant articulate. Passionate Republicans in the on Capitol Hill in the country frankly he's earned it and now all of a sudden he's gonna be denied this opportunity. His rightful pick his rightful place because somehow the color of his skin is not. According to what PO pollsters say he should have or -- the advisors say he should have it's ridiculous it's reverse racism. So Timmy you pick the best person for the job I don't care third guy up -- purple orange green and I don't care. I just want somebody who loves this country who knows what he's talking about and was a patriot and that's Paul Ryan. 6172666868. Paul thanks for holding you're wrong WRK. All. Afternoon -- You know. For some public that they're really like Orion and I think he's been great -- however I think the for the better pick out there I would have preferred to see Allen west. Bum and I -- fairly quickly like 11. Off. Hum chrome eight. Philosophical point of view as far as how these individuals who -- we -- Paul Ryan out of we take Paul Ryan out of -- Period is and we put it into -- vice president we're creating a hole in an area where we don't have a lot of us. Straight right now which of the senate. -- home we could afford to lose Allen west where he is and come up. Secondly Al west brings things to the table that -- -- -- and that our party desperately need at this table which is the military service on a career of actually haven't. Make those hard decisions that aren't just about nickel and dimes but there about life and death. All these things I think matter and I think we're not only do they matter but there's something that the other side they're except for the the other side you know. You'll Obama does not have that kind of background Joseph Biden does not have a kind of background and have no answer to. You know to have guys. Oh not again not the Paul Ryan is in a fantastic choice because the what you don't bring to the table. But I do think that Allen west would've brought a certain alone extra set out. -- -- That Paul Ryan unfortunately does not bring in Paul Ryan is right now the senator. Barry well positioned to work on the things that he's Antarctica which is. Because as as you know the White House doesn't dictate this subject comes from the senate and the congress so. I think that. Paul Allen -- Ryan Paul Ryan is congressman he's he's in the house he's not under and it. He and he's the chairman of the House Budget Committee not your right look he's very good. A Paul look. There's much you say there that I agree with. First of all let me just tell you this not to I'm trying to myself credentials but I just wanna be just very candid with you in the listeners. My wife and on new Allen west wave before he going to congress in fact. One of the site things that my wife and I do would be running think tank. Devoted. To reaching out to minorities and women and to bring them into the conservative movement. We teamed up with Allen west -- before he became famous I know Alan west. He's a war hero he's a patriot he's a man of courage and immense bravery. We backed him when he ran for caught for -- seat in Florida. Where they are doing to him now if you're following that race is even more despicable. If that's possible then what they're doing to Mitt Romney. They his opponent ran an ad against Allen west. Financed by his father Patrick Murphy is the democratic challenger. A financed by his father Oprah only has very deep pockets to see Democrats only like certain wealthy people if you're up a leftist and your and your opinion -- millionaire. That's fine. And in bad. They show Allen west beating up old white women and white women. They block command with boxing gloves beating the hell out of white women. Now Allen west right away said they hold on. Can you imagine if if a conservative developed. Can you imagine if a Republican to -- if they ran an ad showing a black person being up a white woman or an older white woman. Could -- -- the NAACP. NBC MSNBC. The Huffington Post. They would be screaming racism from here until kingdom come Jesse John actually personally. Holding. A march down -- Palm Beach. With Al Sharpton like they did for the judge George Zimmerman. A case that we we would you be pandemonium. If this was done by -- Republican against the Democrat. As Russia are. Florida. So here we have blatant double standards blatant hypocrisy. The NAACP. Says nothing in fact he said no it's politics. Nothing wrong with -- had to -- and -- the -- would be aren't. A black guy beating up a white old woman and a and a younger white woman normal racism there no racism there no problem. They're not playing the race card Mullah Omar and all because it's a Democrat ads are doing it. So I like. Allen west. The problem with Allen west. Is that he's the future of the Republican Party. Right now I don't believe he's ready for prime time. Paul Ryan has paid his dues he's a seven term congressman. The military is immensely important. In fact nobody's talking about the war in Afghanistan. And noticed that. Our boys are dying. Every game -- Just recently. A trader in the Afghan army. We church who you were training. Turned around and shop our own voice. And killed them. This is what are our troops are going through they have been abandoned by this president I agree with few. But if we don't turn our economic ship around. We can't pay for the military. We can't pay for Social Security we can't pay for Medicare we can't pay for anything. That's why a guy like Paul Ryan. Who wants to confront our debt and deficit and out of control spending is the right man at the right moment. That's what I think what say you 6172666868. Is Paul Ryan the right pick for Mitt Romney. Jeff corner from The Washington Times on AM 680 WRKO. Welcome back there AM six AE WRK. From The Washington Times. Paul Ryan yeah. Historic day today I wanna hear from you. Alan. Welcome to WRKO. They yes they could take my call love religion itself thank you want to. He's not just a good to get a key is he picked. The end. The thing of it is America rate now has got its financial backed up against the wall. The thing we need more than anything. As a country. Is to financial geniuses in the White House. I mean. It's much I loved Ronald Reagan. The biggest thing of the Reagan in his biggest mistake was that have George H. W. Bush. As his vice president. Because they wanted on on the same page. Economically. The end of the -- hear -- but the thing but this this is not. They won election think. You know Mitt Romney gets elected in four years from now where we're bathing and Richard this is not gonna happen we -- we got a lot of restoration. They have become a bottle as a country. And that then that's beautiful about this -- just fantastic. Is that Mitt Romney can get in that his. His policies for the next eight years. And then Paul Ryan is gonna continue those policies for the next eight years but. We do indeed these cycles. Bob elections to get America back on its feet. Really get it back to a constitutional. Because the thing about about -- immediately Tea Party favorite this guy is a True Blue conservatives exactly. It's America he loves the constitution. And the thing of it is you get sixteen years. Of these type of principles. We're back we're back where -- -- call the day thank you so much buddy there's so much there is likable thing I don't know where to begin. Where people don't understand the ball Paul Ryan is she comes from a congressional district it's not a red district. It's a literally it's a purple district it's not blue and it's not read it the quintessential swing district and he's won it for seven term it's. So this is the guy who when he talks financial fiscal economic issues they go he's perfectly reasonable. I mean to. That's why they love him in Wisconsin I believe he's gonna flip Wisconsin for the Republicans. They're gonna -- them in the midwest they're gonna love them in the heartland they're gonna love him in Iowa. They're gonna love him in the Dakotas they're gonna love it in Minnesota they're gonna love him in Michigan they're gonna love him and Ohio I'm telling you this is a big win. Because when he says Mikey did today. We're not gonna restore everything in one shot. It took us a long time to dig this hole is not even a whole honestly it's a crater is like a crater on Mars it is sold beep. We may not be able to come back but if we do come back. The guys to do it -- Romney and Ryan and when Ryan makes that case I'm telling you. You're gonna see independents. You're gonna see working class voters middle class voters are gonna see a lot of women you're gonna see seniors you're you're gonna see the young. They may be -- went for Obama in 2008 but when Ryan says it's going to be more jobs. You may be paying off your parents and grandparents is that until you die do you want that. You're gonna see young people flocked to this ticket like you haven't seen in years. I think it's to me it was a political. Economic and national master stroke. Eric -- thanks for holding here on WRKO. Always a pleasure to listen to get corner thanks Paris. Eight yeah I gotta agree with Paul. It just earlier. Who said. That Ryan is is a good pick. But not the best and Allen west certainly. Would've been the best vice presidential candidate. Because. A variety of things that you are you mentioned because of your familiarity and and you're quite. With Allen west but I think it goes beyond -- and I think he is the best candidate regardless of skin color but because of his skin color. It would provide. An example. For those who we -- off from the Republican Party. -- large degree not entirely. Due to this -- -- buddy and I am just so impressed with Allen west. And I do want to mention that I was disappointed. With the offensive this morning. Ferris Alan west I believe will be -- next senator from Florida. And I believe one day he will be president of the United States. I think you'll see Romney Ryan and then west that's my prediction you're in your first. Jeff kronor on 680 AM WR OK okay it's silver.
