mccain and george w. bush both got the same percentage of white voters. one won in a landslide in 2000, the other lost by seven. that's the changing democrat graphic nature of our state and of our country. so if you want to win in the swing states you need to attract swing voters. and if you want to win in the country you have to do that. so i think there needs to be a concerted 24/7 effort, not just to do it when you come down to miami, there ought to be an effort in north carolina, efforts in new mexico, nevada, the swing -- the growing populations in all of the swing states are hispanic voters. and the tone of the campaign talking about border security, which is a significant issue. if you just focus on that alone and not talk about economic opportunity, overregulation of small businesses, education reform to give people opportunities, a tip of the hat of the patriotic and aspirational nature of all the hispanic communities to connect personally, if you don't do any of that you're not saying welcome to our club, welcome to our team. and we do that at our peril, i think. >> you

with george w. bush, anyone who spends any time with him in a small group probably can't help but think he's a nice guy. you may not like his politics. they are both texans, but they are different kind of texans. governor perry pointed out he went to texas a&m, if you don't know that, it is just short of cult status. president bush went to yale. those are both texans, but there are some people that may find out that perry is, what a lot of them stereotype bush as. he's a west texan. he wears his cowboy boots proudly. he is, some people think t real deal when it comes to being a texan. we'll see how that translates on the campaign trail. >> are you trying to say new haven's no in texas? it's funny because he was asked about this. governor perry knows, obviously, eventually he'll get to run on his record. but when you're the new candidate in the race and the last republican for president was a republican from texas. you're going to be asked about the comparisons, and this is what governor perry had to say today. >> i'm not going to sit here. george bush is not my opponent. he's a former p

george w. bush's cowboy diplomacy doochlt they regret those words and wish they could have them back. >> i think they're trying to turn back on the president. when the president talks about who other folks would do i think the new rule is he is talking about mitt romney. i asked the romney campaign for a statement on what the president had to say today and they did not directly talk about 2007. they said, look, it is a cheap political ploy on the part of president obama to distort governor romney's strong policies on the war on terror. i tweeted that statement out and ben, spokesman for the re-election campaign within minutes tweeted back to me saying what policy on counter terrorism did governor romney ever outline. this is happening in realtime going back and forth quickly and the one thing that should be noted is that when mitt romney made those comments back in 2007 about moving heaven and earth to get one person, he was asked about that at the debate a few days later after he made the comments and he did say, quote, unquote, we will move everything to get him. i guess at that ti
