>> WELCOME TO THE REPORT.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

>> STEVE EBB, STEPHEN,

STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

STEPHEN, STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

STEPHEN, STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: I GOT TO TELL

YOU-- FOLKS, I GOT TO TELL

YOU.

WITH A GREETING LIKE THAT, I

GOT TO TELL YOU YOU'RE A

NATURAL HIGH.

>> FOLKS, I WANT YOU OUT.

>> FOLKS, TONIGHT THE

REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES HAD

THEIR SECOND PRESIDENTIAL

DEBATE IN LESS THAN A WEEK.

AND I WAS EXCITED AS A KID

IN A CANDY STORE WHO SPENT

THREE HOURS IN THAT SAME

CANDY STORE LAST WEDNESDAY.

OF COURSE TONIGHT'S DEBATE

IS BEING COHOSTED BY CNN AND

THE TEA PARTY EXPRESS.

SO YOU KNOW IT WON'T BE MORE

OF THE SAME, SAME OLD SAME

OLD.

NOW WE TAPED THE SHOW BEFORE

THE TEA PARTY FACE-OFF.

SO LET ME GIVE YOU A PREVIEW

OF MY ANALYSIS TOMORROW.

OH GOD SO, MUCH BLOOD, WHERE

DID THAT TIGER COME FROM.

(LAUGHTER)

BUT FOLKS, THE REAL, THE

REAL GAME CHANGER CAME

BEFORE THE DEBATE WHEN

FORMER CANDIDATE TIM

PAWLENTY STOPPED BY TO

BORROW A CUP OF AIR TIME

FROM THE FOLKS & FRIENDS.

>> THERE'S ONE CANDIDATE IN

THIS RACE WHO IS UNMATCHED

IN HIS SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE

AND TALENT WHEN IT COMES TO

TURNING AROUND THIS ECONOMY

AND GROWING JOBS.

AND THAT'S MITT ROMNEY AND

I'M PROUD AND EXCITED TO

ENDORSE HIM FOR PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES.

>> Stephen: THIS IS HUGE FOR

ROMNEY.

JUST WEEKS AGO THESE TWO MEN

WERE BITTER RIVALS, OPPOSITE

IN EVERY WAY AND LOOK AT

THEM NOW.

IT'S LIKE MIRACLE WHIP

ENDORSING MAYONNAISE.

(LAUGHTER)

PLUS, PLUS HE-PAW HAS SIGNED

ON AS THE NATIONAL CO-CHAIR

OF MITT ROMNEY'S CAMPAIGN.

I HOPE THAT DOESN'T MEAN HE

HAS TO GIVE UP HIS OTHER JOB

AS ASSISTANT MANAGER OF THE

ROUTE 23 KINKOS.

THESE GUYS HAVE GROWN SO

CLOSE THAT ROMNEY EVEN

INVITED PAWLENTY TO

TONIGHT'S DEBATE AS HIS PLUS

1.

PLUS 1, ALSO THE NUMBER OF

VOTES HIS ENDORSEMENT HAS

BROUGHT TO THE ROMNEY

CAMPAIGN.

FOLKS--

(APPLAUSE)

>> HE-PAW.

HE
