>> greg: so lost in the tussle among republican candidates is the question: which one can beat obama? the campaign is middle school. jocks, nerd, outsider from another school versus the teacher's pet obama. these are the teacher's pet because he is the favorite among the media. protected because she the perfect progressive among academics and herbal tea. who is the best challenger? the outsider is cool. loner pointing out how this school sucks. that is what paul does. just like outsiders, what he offers is probably weird. the need is good. he would make a great lab partner but you have to avoid him after class. one thing you count on with nerds, they study because they know they aren't the jock. speaking of, mitt with good looks and easy way. you get the sense he hasn't had to study at all. what you are left with is the notion to beat the teacher's pet is to expose him for the coddle coaster he is. or maybe the best person to beat obama and someone who
does what he does. nothing. mount platitudes, keep the rhetoric soaring. it's a battle of hot air versus hot air. collision of two hot air balloons. romney is the best hot air balloon captain of republicans that i see. who gets my vote? i will probably put all of their names in a hat and have a beer and put on the hat and forget i put the names in there. that happened four years ago and look what happened. andrea, you first. want to analyze the strength and weaknesses, of the g.o.p. front runners. pick one and tell me the strength and weaknesses. >> andrea: okay, newt gingrich. he has a record in d.c. of actually getting something done. he knows how to navigate the system, which barack obama does not know. he hasn't utilized that. i think newt is the toughest. i don't think he gets thrown off his game easily. he is very shrewd and he would obliterate the president in a debate. i do think romney has strengths, too. he has tremendous
organization. and i do think he would be good in a debate as well. as you pointed out, he is going to play it safe. i think he could, he could not let the left get at him for personal things which gingrich could. >> greg: right. >> andrea: i also think he probably just that family life. he and barack obama have a good clean slate behind him. it would be tough i think for democrats to hit romney hard. particularly on his liberal flip-flop. they agree on some things. >> greg: not many skeletons. but you have skeletons in your college. because you work at a medical college. pick one. what do you think? strengths and weaknesses for i'll give you ron paul. >> eric: of course you are going to give me ron paul. you have don't want to do ron paul. every time one of us does it, paulites go ballistic on the internet. small government guy. hates the fed. right on all fiscal, everything to do with money, spot on and perfect. i love him for that.
weakness, once again, blaring hole in the side. you can't survive, can't be the nomine with the way you treat israel. your opinion on israel, frankly, i think he has even said israel shouldn't exist. that and you will never become the nominee being pro drug legalization. it won't happen. >> greg: i hope it happens when i'm still alive. about five years. bob, speaking of which -- >> bob: yes. >> greg: you are going to live forever. you are literally in formaldehyde. let's ask you about mitt romney. he is the front runner basically. >> bob: first, andrea said something right about romney, he plays it safe. you don't beat the sitting incumbent president playing it safe. rarely, if you look back in history. if you beat sitting president with enormous advantages. he will have an enormous advantage because he is the nominee. if the republicans had a fight
for any length of time, it helps obama. romney advantage is he has done it. second run. generally a second time around if you stay, you know how to do it. you can survive. probably an okay debater. he does look like a presidential candidate. here is the fundamental problem, it's not barack obama. the base of the republican party, yes, andrea well put it. they have been spoonfed, romney now. but the fervor that would have been around newt gingrich at the base of the republican party won't be there. this is why that matters. in ohio, southern ohio for example, the key swing precincts are conservative based republican voters. >> eric: you keep saying, "base." i disagree that the base, the republican base is splintered. there are two factions. >> bob: in the republican base -- >> eric: establishment and conservative. romney clearly goes to the establishment. >> bob: what i mean by the base is conservative activist people two get up and go to
e has going for him for a guy that is not exciting. such a fervor to beat barack obama they might get undl fall in line. some of the supporters will fall in line. cain had the same thing. >> bob: not sure as a get to you -- >> kimberly: before the comerrable. >> greg: yeah. look at the front runner who is the strongest candidate? >> kimberly: right now the strongest candidate out there is romney. anything can happen. we'll see what will turn around in iowa and see how the numbers reflect there. then we have to go south. that will be significant. see how they do in south carolina. if you look at somebody like romney, of course, he has tremendous business acumen and strong on the economy. he has an unbelievable campaign structure comprised of a lot of people from bush's former campaign. i think that will help them a lot. he knows how to raise money.
perry has a war chest as well. likable and personable. he will soar in the number after the interview "on the record." >> bob: keep him out here and days of accepting federal money for campaigns is $50 million or $60 million, it will be self-financed. obama will raise $700 million to $1 billion. i guess the advantage that romney has he is willing to go in his own pocket to do it and he probably will have to. if not, if you don't have that kind of money to compete against the obama camp, you are going to have to put it together. thing about the obama people they know how to play this game. >> greg: okay, that is the obama strength. we know the obama strength, he is an amazing campaign with a lot of money. what is the weakness? what do you go for? >> kimberly: hello. look at the economy. no matter day in the '80s, every family gets two vcrs. people don't feel as prosperous. unless he is able to see job numbers in his favor and the
economy improve, i think he has considerable problems and weaknesses coming from the majority of americans. >> andrea: economy definitely number one. deficit, number two. it matters a lot to independents. but remember, he promised to bring the country together to get things done. people want to get things done. they are sick and tired of both parties arguing. the candidate that has the best record is newt gingrich. welfare reform, balancing the budget. he has done all of that stuff. he can say i have been there, and did it as speaker. what have you done, mr. president, when you had democratic congress? >> eric: obama economics fail. that is a huge issue for him. a caveat that could happen late next year, the supreme court will hear obamacare. if they break it up and say it's unconstitutional going in the election, if i'm on the right, couldn't get this done. >> bob: that will be one of the great hack decisions of
the court. >> andrea: if it happens the whole thing falls apart. >> bob: no some way it's not bad to happen to him. i think he wins either way. the republicans would say what is your answer. we have a problem here. the economy, look how much better it's gotten than before. the expectations are so low -- >> eric: isn't that pathetic? >> kimberly: he has to peak at the right time. >> eric: that is what we have to look forward to? >> bob: reagan in '84, the expectations were so low off of a 10% unemployment he cleaned us. >> andrea: if obamacare is repealed the republicans will step up like they have done and say rather than reform the system, let's do the small ball and take it on piece by piece instead of a massive takeover.
>> eric: he turned things around. bringing unemployment and inflation down faster than any other president. >> bob: this is singularly and entirely the responsibility of the government of the house republicans that over and over again they refuse to go along. the senate counterpart had to force feed them to give people tax cut. >> greg: what was going on before that? before the republicans were in control? they are not having anything done was an achievement. >> bob: whether you like it or not, getting universal healthcare is a big deal. >> kimberly: a big f'ing deal as biden says but people don't like it. >> bob: people don't know enough about it. >> kimberly: run-away segment. pull us up. >> greg: coming up -- thank

ron paul is the nominee and he literally said i don't think i can do that. the g.o.p.er saying he doesn't think he could vote for another g.o.p.er against barack obama. stepping it up late six days left. doing what he has to do. >> andrea: it seems like newt gingrich went from being nice to everybody now. he can't just fight romney. he has had to fight aser ring pointed out ron paul gaining in the polls. we have a poll to pull up, cnn time, i want you to react to this. this shows romney on top in iowa. so newt gingrich is actually having to spend money not just on fighting romney, but on fighting ron paul something he didn't want to have to do. >> kimberly: incoming, newt taking hits from all side. he is still crawling. what the republican base is, not fighting. they want someone to get their hair messed up and do the dirty work. fight back. i like his approach. i like the attitude. now he has to turn around and get super pac to help him get
ground support, campaign money together. otherwise, can't be bothered. >> greg: protected by the shiny helmet. >> andrea: i love the gloss and shine in his hair. hot oil treatment. >> bob: gingrich, there is probably a pac out there. he is doing hard work and the heavy lifting. this reminds me of when they asked bob dole when he ran against george herbert walker bush. he said, "yeah, stop whining about my record." it brought back that dole could be mean and angry. but in this case, gingrich handled it well and got away with it in two sentences saying mitt, you are a wimp, not stepping up to it. face me man-to-man or get off the stage. but the damage done to gingrich in the last two weeks is incalculable. i talk to people in iowa and they tell me you can't turn on a television show and not see a blast at gingrich. by the way, a piece of mail that is going to hit in iowa monday morning that is
devastating on gingrich. >> greg: the new phone book? >> bob: no. it's your love letter to him. >> andrea: gingrich doesn't place well in iowa, that is tough for him. >> bob: money will dry up for people. santorum is moving on. we talk politics, santorum is -- >> andrea: third in the poll. >> bob: in this poll. >> kimberly: iowa surprise. >> bob: every time you have someone sneaking in, he may come in third and live again to go to new hampshire and south carolina. but the person who can't is newt gingrich. if he is beat in iowa, his strength in the south can't live. >> andrea: could santorum go to south carolina and new hampshire -- >> bob: couldn't be a better state. >> greg: talking about a santorum special sounds like something special at a green diner. >> kimberly: is that on the menu? >> andrea: i don't know if
that is to compliment or not. >> eric: shows well in iowa, and new hampshire knows that romney runs away with it. south carolina, very conservative -- >> kimberly: that is true. >> eric: iowa as well as south carolina. >> bob: i'll make a prediction. there is always surprises in the first two races, either santorum or perry. >> kimberly: yes. >> bob: i think perry in the end finally got his act together. iowa still, even in the bad economy, there are social value oriented voters. he has touched them. >> andrea: but we also have the footage of gingrich saying he wouldn't vote for someone like ron paul. >> bob: you jumped the story. >> eric: i didn't realize. >> bob: tease, eric. >> looking at ron paul's total effort of systemic avoidance and reality, look at his newsletters and his ads, the ads are as accurate of the newsletter. >> if he were to get the republican nomination. >> he won't.
>> let's say he does and would you vote for him? >> no. >> andrea: i don't think he should have said this. why? i think a lot of ron paul supporters, if newt makes it on, right and paul doesn't, they would naturally go to someone like gingrich over ron paul. but i think he is angry at ron paul, because paul proved to be romney -- hold on. paul proved to be romney secret weapon. think about this. ron paul is rising up and taking out negative ads. he hurt gingrich. >> eric: what else will he say? he should have said i'll take anybody over barack obama but at the time, ron paul leading the polls and michele bachmann asked the same question and could not come up with the answer. i'm not answering that question. but basically couldn't say i wouldn't vote for ron paul instead of obama. but that is a leader. they're taking shots at him. >> bob: can i make another point. mitt romney stayed at 25 points in iowa the whole time long. romney has 25 points in iowa

puerto rican parade. sorry, kimberly. but have a parade for people who did something and achieved something and put their life on the line. these people deserve parades. having said that, the problem with the parade is you have a parade. something bad happens in violence. more violence. little parades in your apartment. >> eric: very good. >> greg: wear a tutu and have a baton. buy military a drink when you see them. when you see them, buy them a shot. >> eric: anybody see military -- >> bob: everybody knows that -- >> eric: in a bar, buy them a drink. >> kimberly: greg is fired up. i like it. i don't think this is a debatable question. you do the right thing and celebrate, honor the sacrifice, which is tremendous. in this case, i know you don't like praise this is one you have to have it -- i know you don't like parades but this is one you have to have it. >> greg: celebrate something when you do something.
