The notion that somehow we caused the deficit.
Is just wrong.
It was not true.
And and anybody looks at the map -- not it's not true and if they start.
Plug your bunch of facts and figures suggesting that it's true.
When they're not -- -- -- does that make baked all the stuff into the cake with those tax cuts.
At a strip prescription drug plan -- -- -- and the war.
That was President Obama dropping some G isn't getting kind of bound -- talking about the huge deficits that continue to rain down.
On the federal government and saying that it was in fact certain person named George W Bush's fault and the Republicans who -- him and the Democrats in control Washington.
This is power play welcome back.
And good news and happy Wednesday because it happened -- is with us she is of course -- Fox News contributor she is of course of the daily caller she is a woman of the right and a friend of this Internet telecast.
Here's the deal the president.
Is looking we were talking about the Russian reset before.
Now we are looking for a political -- he's going to -- today.
Framing speech which means that he's not going to make a new proposal -- he's going to try to re frame.
What he has said before on the -- -- look -- news here -- this hearing that -- will not be here but some -- systematic -- issues they'll do that in Ohio tomorrow.
Yesterday -- he's pushing back on debt -- deficit.
During that -- it's the republicans' fault as we get into the middle server.
Heard of -- of the general election season we've had the opening revolution -- now it's time for the the stretch as we go into the stretch what's your assessment.
Well I think that.
Many people including myself actually I think the Obama team.
You can get very caught up in Obama's the myth of Obama and how good he is on the trail how challenging he might be to somebody like Ronnie who is not a script mature enough.
-- but I think a lot of people underestimated.
Just how much this election is going to be about Obama and what he has failed to -- which is to get the economy going again I think I did a little bit yeah.
Got a little I think we are -- to see him on his heels for much of this opening section.
Of the election obviously that's what why he wants to make a change as for his defense of the deficits and and I -- think.
It feels like weeks off it feels like that is actually that is actually the technical direction that it is weak sauce and -- it feels like it's way James Carville and Greenberg did this favors the Obama team by introducing this memo that says -- we actually talked to.
Not -- not college educated college educated voters in Ohio swing state voters think did you feel what they're thinking in this messaging working for them -- sort of flippant.
This was bush and I know he's preaching acquired this event but it's not gonna work with independent voters to do that and I think he's gonna try to switch to -- More I feel your pain.
That small -- -- small Clinton thumbs his return he's not.
Clinton mess with the pivot as we've seen is not very easily trying to -- -- he's been trying to -- -- sense.
December when he carried out ballerina yes very bad ballerina.
The question for the president is this is -- complicated.
Message on the economy gets it was bad it was very bad it could have been much worse it's not getting better fast enough.
But it is the republicans' fault for and it's it's shaped like a quadruple bank shot.
One of the problems that we're watching for them as they try to get this message -- when it's when you have to shout so loudly to try to cut through the clutter.
You get knocked off course all the time if you're if -- commerce secretary for example -- as a rough down the road yes blows it blows you off message that it's not it's it's not an easy one hammer away at.
Right it's really not he's in a tough position I do not deny that at all if you read the Greenberg Carville memo it.
Illustrates exactly what a tough position -- he isn't and they -- guys which I think it's probably smarts and look.
Don't do so much contextualizing gives you so much saying things are getting better because people don't feel like they're getting better so say look I understand things are bad.
Moving forward here's how -- -- Terrible right here -- yeah.
Here -- yeah -- third round you'll drink your blood and this is now I will help you get a job again and -- by the weighted.
It instantly -- it's even if you go to that it's it's a tough message but at least it's simple and we sought to your point 02 Greenberg.
And and that I -- that focus group report -- like another note Clinton knights.
Putting a marker down to say -- by the today you can tell you that this guy was gonna have trouble.
And but it's their option to listen in -- and often bubble in case administration yes if they pick up that report which I assume some of them actually will.
There is really interesting stuff American Romney is vulnerable because people don't feel like he truly understands.
But in the polls and the places that matters about handling the economy.
He's had a Barack Obama and that people can continue to personally -- Barack Obama but they may vote for Mitt Romney vaguely threatening.
And as long as he seems plausible that we talk about all the time -- I do that basically re election process is about two things that answering two questions first question is.
Do we want to keep this guy.
And we're seeing now in the polls continue to come out do -- poll after poll showing independents are jumping off of Obama.
He's in trouble.
In the home stretch -- what the Obama campaign hopes is that the second question which is is this person possible.
Is Mitt Romney plausible person.
That for Romney the people -- do what they did in 2004.
And say as much that would like to have a different situation.
This guy is not gonna cut it and and that they'll -- now.
I think that's tough I think even though people don't trust from the -- and even that is applicable ability numbers are not great as -- his vulnerabilities.
I think he sounds Smart on the economy and she sounds plausible when he's talking about these things -- perhaps his greatest strength is talking about the economy.
Connecting maybe not much -- his strength and -- not -- -- not look good but I guess I do think he's certainly vulnerable because he's not print it but if you look at the beginning of this campaign right this campaign has been.
-- on it I.
Did -- well and I've been a little bit surprised.
How well I -- just just it's little things like taking your Twitter account Obama Barack Obama doing fine right was the Romney Twitter account created right after that caffeine moment and used to its full extent to continue that and to make it a symbol of his campaign.
How much she -- your Internet she's.
Season goes to Twitter right away she gets -- that's got there weren't a solid housing marker for gets his team being ready -- just -- -- -- -- with Hillary -- back in the area early going they got right on that and got -- Wii Sports stool beside of that instead of 1 evening so I think it's harder to market team like that off.
All right well I'll buy that and so far Romney's favorability number which is more important -- like ability it's like I find this person except I find this person basically.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Right exactly I think he is less likely to suck my blood into -- Great minicamp today.
-- -- -- -- -- thank -- very -- -- the Internet always enjoys your company.
OK so now onto other business very quickly.
First thing it's -- that are -- -- today to.
And up next on the -- with Jonathan Hunt will -- entertain and amuse you and now as we'd like to do every -- we want to leave you with the word.
From our French are.
It's what I so we heard from the secretary of state it was an admission of complete impotence and our part in dealing with the Russians -- she can do is complain.
-- -- the administration.
Policy either reset policy.
The much heralded reset policy which was supposed to undo the drift in the coldest that they had said the Bush Administration have introduced into our relations.
With the Russian wasn't -- supposed to give myself and for.
