-- the -- outsourced -- in chief please stand up.
Is a governor Mitt Romney or is it president Barack Obama -- -- and -- ask.
First you Obama campaign Jeb governor Romney alleging that he sent jobs overseas -- running Bain Capital and as governor of Massachusetts.
And now Republicans turned the tables on the Obama campaign the -- launching an aggressive effort to cast -- Obama as the real outsourced or in shape.
And today governor -- making that argument himself.
It is interesting that that when it comes to to outsourcing.
That this president has been.
Outsourcing a good deal of American jobs himself.
By putting money in that.
Energy company solar and wind energy companies and end up making their products outside the United States if there's an outsource -- -- chief -- the president of the United States not the guy who's running to replace him.
Is there an advantage out of making that outsourcing argument and is it legitimate Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume joins us -- -- see -- thank you -- and I -- -- a battle of who's who who's the bigger outsource your and is it fair first -- up.
Well I suppose it is not only to wanna -- much of an outsource survived -- and I think the most telling thing about this whole flap over outsourcing is that the Obama campaign.
Got this idea out of a -- in the Washington Post it was recently.
To begin with a pretty weak story and they just -- -- which television is something I think about the Obama campaign and and we think of this enormous apparatus they have.
The skillful people are running it.
And they grab a story out of a newspaper and uses an attack you sense that they are grabbing whatever they can against against Romney in sort of throwing it up against the wall to see if it'll stick.
-- this I don't think you -- very well.
There's news of Obama attacks has been debunked.
Via a fact checker and even the Washington Post which kind of -- the whole thing even their their fact -- dominant political -- -- Given -- -- -- review and now of course you know the Republican weighing in with their claims against Obama largely growing out of some stimulus money -- -- overseas.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- For the reminiscent of the things that that fits your automotive companies that -- and automobiles in Finland.
What it says -- this is the RNC pointed to money that went to -- automotive which is producing a luxury electric sports car in Finland.
Fact check dot org does says that while the firm got a 169 million federal loan guarantee the low when he is so percent of the US.
Maybe so but money's fungible Greta.
Plenty of money from.
-- it is true that some money is that's been here that means it frees up money to be spent there I mean.
That's a problem if that's the same that's why there's argument it seems to me is ultimately -- silly.
That that neither I don't think either man has a policy of outsourcing believes it outsourcing jobs to foreign countries.
-- -- that they ought to be involved and and to some extent in some instances outsourcing makes sense there's actually good for the economy -- -- the issue probably isn't gonna last much longer.
You don't I want it with the independents think as a sort of sit sit back and listen doll everybody and TV in the candidates themselves and their campaigns are about outsourcing or not.
As a as a independents who really to determine who the next president is it I want to fixing this site you know so wanted to visit there are several Verizon on this name calling.
I think they do and then I think at this stage people are not fully focused on the campaign as a certain category of -- people who intend.
On both sides and they pay attention always nuances and they think about who gets the upper hand on this issue -- that.
I think people focus on this campaign has not -- begun to happen and we'll start happening around the time of the conventions and beyond.
And particularly during the months of October when people feel -- intensely focused so it's early yet that is possible.
And I think this is what the team Obama is betting on.
That if you can really seriously define.
Your opponent in the early stages of a race in an indelible way that you can you can gain an advantage is it that you may never lose.
I'm not sure if it's happening here but I think that's what they're trying to do.
Here's -- hard and get in the minds of other people -- how live over the seems to me that city about a minute administration -- it can't -- Maybe trying to frame governor Romney a certain way but underlying all of this.
At least it -- the bad job supports we know June was bad we don't know what -- is -- -- be or August -- early November.
But it seems to me is that you know no matter how much framing and they do of their opponent isn't -- of the jobs report is going to be is going to be can.
I couldn't possibly agree with you more that's the biggest political story of the hour we'll continue to be as -- -- -- the election -- -- -- this.
-- while people's attention to the candidates in the campaigns may not be very intense.
This right now this this season of the year has been in the past the time when -- -- about the condition of the economy begins to Harden.
For example back in 1992 and George H.
Bush was running for reelection the economy it actually emerge from them relatively by today's standards relatively mild recession.
But the after effects are still being felt and by this time of the year people.
The for the economy.
Was beginning to grow but it was too late and -- -- day it was and it was there was it were a full recovery mode but it was way too late to save George H.
I don't know how that can be much of recovery mode for the present between now and November advice or simple indicators for instance we have now borrowing money is now down there's really very much as the industry is about as -- can get CK SO loosen -- money any more than it is.
We have certain indicators -- -- I don't know where the margin is for the president is gonna see any -- -- -- problems in Europe that aren't getting better to have an enormous influence on our economy that are beyond his influence nonetheless if he's a president and he sticks and I don't I don't know how he.
Colin I don't -- any indicate an economy that's gonna help him enormously I don't think we'll have.
-- -- strong rebound between now and Election Day.
Little while dramatic wasn't even if we did.
Sentiment may have begun to begun to turn it situated there but it's too late.
Is there one.
Ethnic group -- core demographic.
Which is -- -- the independent vote right now well.
No I don't I'm not I don't know how it I could this possibly.
Slice of the independent vote and tell you to know what its assessment -- Position has.
But you can slice of the electorate opinion and if you do you think about Hispanic vote and -- African American -- of what.
You could make a pretty good case of Barack Obama has an outstanding chance to win.
If you do it another way which is to say okay let's assume that each each candidate gives -- his base.
-- and whoever wins a majority a distinct majority independents to win an election which is when you were saying earlier and that's the way envoys try to look at examining its assumptions went into the.
And I think it depends I sit back and laugh at us -- right now whether to tax or penalty last week or not only.
-- little -- source Rosie outsource it so I think that Simpson back in general rise a little bit and columnists and I pregnancy and that's a few good.
