And this is a fox has learned Mitt Romney winning big tonight picking up wins in Delaware Pennsylvania Rhode Island in Connecticut and we are still awaiting results from the State -- New York.
And we continue tonight with Dana Perino and Stuart Varney I don't wanna go through the speech.
It's still about the economy we're not stupid.
Pretty powerful -- not matter what sort of distraction you try to throw our way.
That was another focus on the economy that is that was basically the signal to act well Leahy's deadline he is was -- the cause he has failed and use that term repeatedly throughout the speech tonight.
The campaign will be diversion distraction and distortion.
The kind of campaign may -- worked at another place at another time not here not now that's when he went into that line.
By and -- committees -- -- -- -- the break this will be a choice selection and I think will be a choice election because if it's a referendum on president Obama's policies yet.
-- it easy to make ends meet is it easier to sell your home or buy a new one have you saved what you needed to retirement are you making more in your job.
That's exactly like Ronald Reagan -- all you better off now than you were four years ago perfect -- -- light goes right to the hearts of our economic problems.
Jobs are an issue housing is an issue that cash value in your pocket is an issue.
That speech went right to the -- of the economic -- showed Obama and then he went into for every single mom.
Who feels heartbroken when she asked to explain to her kids as she needs to take a second job.
Or for every grandparent who can't afford.
The gas to visit his or her grandchildren because there's been an attempt.
To try and portray governor Romney as quote the silver spoon in his mouth etc.
and -- is identifying wait a minute.
Barack Obama's at three and a half years this hasn't -- and -- -- and all of the issues the Barack Obama is running away from.
He doesn't wanna mention jobs and housing and that cash in your pocket he doesn't want to mention that -- doesn't want to mention debt.
Deficits the economic growth rate he doesn't want to mention the Social Security is getting bankrupt a lot sooner the whistle.
He doesn't want to mention that Medicare is running out of money a lot sooner than we -- -- want to mention any of that he's completely away from that he sticks with class war fat he sticks would divisive comments.
As such a sharp contrast to what we just soul from -- -- and and think at the line that he used here besides saying we're never gonna apologize for America again which I think is going to be a Powell.
Of a powerful.
Point of contrast in the election.
But he also dealt the head on with the issue class warfare that seems to be as you said you think they're gonna continue with this.
When he said you know I see children outlining his vision for the country.
More successful than their parents a fear most Americans have that the American dream will not be as good for their kids -- -- kids.
And others congratulating them for of their achievements.
And not attacking them for it.
I was pretty powerful and death today you could you would not be mistaken if you thought the president Obama's thought that he was only -- that worked hard in college and had to get through it was student loans.
To the dinner -- -- help pay for things people were -- college because -- You know a lot of people's car he had to work hard that you went through that I mean -- I went had to drop out of school three times as I ran out of money DJ for crying out loud as I am to 6 AM I work construction Dana -- play stronger -- make.
A step up.
I really think that the other thing that he showed tonight is.
You can't have traveled around the country as much as he has.
Outside of the bubble.
And not have met people that are counting on him to try to change things that's so he was talking about tonight that Clinton is made up it actually felt it and.
-- and Romney got emotional today and that our time to show it is -- this moment will -- show it.
Later in the program she had emotional when she was speaking about people in the country women so we'll get to that here's -- last question.
It seems to me and I actually think he can thank the other candidates for this.
That this process.
Has made him infinitely better as a candidate.
The Mitt Romney they gave that speech tonight was a very different Mitt Romney.
That started in this campaign April velocity he's on the simplistic level -- delivery.
The delivery tonight was infinitely better infinitely delivery of other speeches three full months ago he's he's much more measured.
He's got his message down to its positives and if I was David Axelrod and or -- or the White House I would be paying very close attention.
Because they can they will not have answers for the questions he raised here tonight but I don't think he he slowed down to just -- simple -- like slowing down being more deliberate.
And more presidential.
Following what Dana when she is Press Secretary told.
It is very deliberate and very calm.
I've never got rattles and try to breathe that at a golf is -- the Google.
And our ass out you can make for the Stewart's accident tonight.
Well I was Linehan say that it will not book of classical fan piece.
-- been you'll write it again Menem and -- -- -- -- -- on the.
This is not a class Loria and nowhere near the last.
Speech book yes that speech will -- -- definitely whether it's wonderful to have it's still good to -- a level that a T after the show.
-- -- thank you all for being with us good to see you --
