Governor -- me it's business practices -- policy.
Have clearly benefited the wealthy most powerful -- often at the expense of working the middle class families.
They actually believe it's the best way I'm not doubting their -- their their their belief.
He just doesn't work that way.
So I don't think that that what you see is America's destiny.
I think is that more of a to make America the best place once again for all to -- -- and innovators and small businesses.
All right it's time talked when he twelve we're back with our panel Fred -- and Charles and -- sounds like -- -- vice president -- and -- -- but it sounds like they've decided Romney's the nominee they're gonna start the general election.
They decided that good -- Joseph is going to be the attack dog.
After all what else is there for -- vice president to do except that I think Biden had been assigned the job.
I was tracking every -- that was spent in the trillion dollar stimulus to make sure was well spent so I'm sure he still.
Working on Natalee that night.
On this you know he's he's got the Britney they have their -- down on round.
He out of touch -- to correct who cares not about the ordinary Americans.
The problem is said Romney's -- on his own he's -- against Obama.
Obama has his own out of touch this issue.
In you know made it work in the sense because he was as spectacular stranger who came out of nowhere and they kind of cool -- And detachment was attractive and it -- To use it charisma -- that's all over now that.
Hope and change stuff -- he's done and now we're looking at him as a president who has a record.
He has his kind of detachment and -- which I think is also.
That's what edges on to the side of being cold so I'm not sure if it's a competition of -- who warmer.
The fuzzier and -- -- candidate that the other side is gonna win.
I think it's a tie on that I think in the end will be on the policies.
Well tomorrow there is this say.
Candidate for president's personal attributes are really important when you're voting for commander in chief.
A presidential vote is just different it's not that simply a partisan vote.
Knowledge is voting for your party and when you look at what's happened to Romney's personal attributes his negatives -- -- -- much worse than Obama's.
-- president Obama's.
Personal favorability ratings are are pretty solid his job approval is still.
You know under 50% he wanted to be over 50% of -- gonna an incumbent who feels you know comfortable about the reelection chances so.
I think -- has some work to do -- I mean it's true this Charles says that Obama has a kind of aloof aspect to his personality not unlike Romney thought.
-- when it comes to kind of -- who cares about people like do.
-- is he somebody you wanna have a beer with that kind of thing Romney has has struggled -- the question is once he doesn't have to pay any attention to Rick Santorum.
And he doesn't have to do you know engage in the circular firing squad that the Republican race became.
And he can turn his attention to Obama does that change you know we all made a lot of fun of Eric -- from saying that there is going to be an Etch A Sketch.
But you know what there is some truth to that every nominee gets a shave and haircut.
And gets the start afresh to a certain extent.
Now mark -- left happening Newt Gingrich because today he hit it very irrelevant I really do he doesn't think no I don't I -- You know -- sentenced today you know I'm not going anywhere we know that he's cut his staff they're been big changes he says he's staying into the convention he feels like he's gonna have a -- there and somehow.
Pull off some sort of upset at the convention common is it time for -- dial that back is it time for him to stay and keep a voice in -- right.
Well I think is that the idea that he's gonna play a big role at the convention is.
And probably delusional.
I think he is revel would be irrelevant now as Morrison had and and that's about it I mean look I think Santorum would need something like three fourths of the delegates left.
To detect and in order to win the nomination so it makes sense it -- that's why the Obama White House is paying attention to wrongly.
The question about Romney is this.
Will -- be a strong general election candidate when he emerges with the nomination and he'll be seen differently that.
What's he is the Republican nominee that make up until the convention.
At the rate we're going now.
But I think there's a chance that he'll be a much better candidate than we -- now with.
Santorum and Gingrich attacking him all the time it'll just be -- being.
Against Obama and I think the personal traits are not gonna -- but really matter that much I mean they're both aloof.
-- -- -- -- Obama's been awash in a long time now and that really does sexual apart from the rest of the country.
-- -- a big businessman that may as well but I don't think the personal traits are going to be much.
Charles and see if there had an elegant way for anyone to bow out before the convention and -- they do it.
There are elegant ways that nobody's going to do it.
Gingrich wants to be a force or at least element -- Maybe I'm not sure what he's gonna do in Tampa but he wants to show up Ron Paul of course we'll show -- Although he's really weakened since his early.
Let's send these successes he -- he has very few delegates and I don't think he'll end up with a speech the way he might have ended up with had he continued.
To give you know 20/20.
5% of the vote.
And then there's Santorum who I think he has one strategy to deny Romney a majority had -- for lightning I don't think it's gonna happen but I think.
It's really only a matter weeks everybody even the vice president now is assuming it's going to be Romney and I think it's kind of psychologically the -- -- over.
Right and what's -- kind of money that makes it tough to continue on which we know several of them are struggling with that right.
Panel thank you very much.
