-- Hello and welcome to the fine print I'm -- -- we're here today at -- -- with former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum who just came offstage. Senators and -- thanks for joining us here for a -- it is it is common in their. Actually put -- out there. Just about every other part. In 2012 and -- do it again. Well I'm I'm certainly open to it we're we're sort of walking down that path right now sermon whether this is something that -- -- for us to do and a lot of people are out there and we feel like we had good strong message to. To address some of the Israel needs and unify the country guessing what -- -- saves you know how hard it is to run for president you're not just up there and talk and talk. A lot of people out here you know and tell people -- which can do it and we have to have this kind of candidate that -- They continued to walk that you don't really have an understanding. I'm really the dynamics at play in a in the presidential race in the book coming out in April called blue collar conservative. Is that ticket you Republicans winning back the White House winning over some of those blue collar conservatives think if you look at where we've we've dropped the ball. Is that we haven't connected to people. Who are. -- -- -- -- Who go through the civil what it was Ohio lightens. Michigan and having policies -- were or even a campaign targeted toward. -- talking to them where they are. And letting them understand how we can get them help them get to where they know we're different than the Democrats are not yet -- can't -- you to move you have to flat. We're gonna give you the opportunity to work you know encourage healthy community healthy healthy families. To create a better life the debate over income. Inequality is one of the topics in this midterm election here. What do Republicans need to do to ensure that this the decision can be had on both sides not just democratic today we need to address the reality. Which is president Obama's policies have widened again we need to paint the picture of what his policies or did. And then paint a picture of what we can do. I talk about. Manufacturing and how we can. Incentivized. The explosion manufacturing -- so. There are lots of things we can do that fish every election cycle there's always a new Austro fresh faces and -- Rick Santorum compete with some of these new lights in the party who get a little more attention we tried. Guy right off the shelf. The last eight years. -- were skeptical well for America. He went to Washington DC divided the country. Has made it almost. Me a stalemate. Nothing gets -- and that's that is that is not a template. I think Republicans want to repeat some potential but candidates are taking more isolationist at least sounding views -- It's a dangerous place for the party -- or the right place but I think it's a very dangerous place for the country to -- because -- have a presence. Has -- crawling up into the catatonic state almost with his foreign policy and for the Republican state court to to actually quirk. The idea that we're gonna be a me -- party on national security is a very dangerous thing for the country. It's time for all Americans and especially conservatives. Do become as critical and reflective when examining foreign policy as we are when examining domestic policy or senator Rand Paul's views to isolationist I would just say that. To. And we need someone who has -- -- better understanding of the proper role for America. In the world if Hillary Clinton happens to be the nominee of the Democratic Party -- What is happening in her husband's history and life is fair game to go after attack. What matters is what you can do for the country and and I didn't agree with I've obviously voted to impeach press -- I agree it's worth it. You know what. That's not the issue that's before us in America we need to show that the policies that this administration -- we called grace. This made the world less safe in the final weeks of your last campaign -- had an encounter -- -- that line however that SAB. The story. -- -- -- Take -- -- -- that moment if you remember what you were were thinking it ended up being a good fundraising -- do we do raise a little money but we actually. Mad at me at that moment here's if it had been given a speech. -- -- Six -- -- months during the campaign that Mitt Romney was uniquely disqualified. As a candidate to take on Obama and I would always conclude that by saying and so Mitt Romney is uniquely disqualify. To be the candidate the Republican Party because of that Obama. Well that dancing with the -- but I sent. He is the worst Republican in that country. To put up against Barack Obama and I worked the line and then this young man comes -- and use ahead. Republicans in the -- for. Speech did you listen -- it. And I thought while. They are really spin in this thing and so I decided to draw the line there is -- workshop July. -- -- -- Republican -- on the issue of Obama and that's just talking about senator thank you and that's all for -- -- the fine print for ABC news and Yahoo! News I'm -- felony.
