Let's talk more about this with Charlie hurt columnist for The Washington Times so it is Mitt Romney officially the GOP nominee was all the talk about him failing to unite or excite conservatives was that all overblown Charlie.
I think it's -- very good point John because that -- when you go back two or three months.
When they were still sort of duking it out and and Mitt Romney was making his -- sort of journey to -- to the two getting the nomination.
There was endless talk about how that we're gonna have a brokered convention remember all the talk about the brokered convention we're gonna go into Tampa and still not -- -- the nominee was.
Of course you know he's you know you -- cooler heads prevailed.
He managed to put it away.
And I think that you know obviously there -- holdouts and there -- some people who do not like Mitt Romney you know conservatives who did not like Mitt -- -- not totally comfortable with them.
But I think that the party the Republican Party is remarkably.
If for no other reason they are very unified against -- Obama they're very dissatisfied with the economy.
And I think that quite frankly.
Is probably the that -- the sterling.
Like that they are all looking at and and you know.
Want you know in case if the Supreme Court doesn't overturn.
Key parts of -- this summer.
I think that the you know that is a real driver and that is going to get get Republicans to -- -- keep the mouth closed.
About any sort of reservations they might have about Mitt Romney.
Well its interest in most Americans say that they think the country is on the wrong track we've obviously got a terrible unemployment problem that persists.
And yet the president remains personally likable most people seem to like the guy they've had three and a half years of him in office.
Is this a dangerous period for Mitt Romney because frankly most voters don't know that much about -- yet.
Yeah well I think that it's dangerous in that -- it would be a mistake for.
Mitt Romney to go as personally negative.
As Obama and his allies have gone against Mitt Romney.
Obviously Obama and his allies that they have a tough record to sell and they want to define Mitt Romney as soon as they can.
And so they're going very harshly negative.
That -- Carl Cameron's bit just now on on the Planned Parenthood is a perfect example of that.
I think that if Mitt Romney were to do that President Obama he probably would be in a lot of trouble because as you say.
President -- remains personally.
Popular institute -- -- to a large.
A large segment especially of of of independent voters though they are dissatisfied with his performance in very dissatisfied with the economy.
As long as Mitt Romney keeps just bringing you define it yet to define himself and and tell people who he is but then the as the campaign goes on just.
Keep coming back to the economy say he's a nice guy come back the economy.
You know you say he's born in America come back to the economy as long as he does that I think he is Mitt Romney is -- -- -- very strong position.
That's how this campaign seems to be shaping up Charlie -- from The Washington Times Charlie thank you thank.
