For the race for the White House he up in the sunshine state President Obama campaigning in Florida this past week targeting a crucial -- in the battleground state.
Older voters the president taking a new line of attack against.
Governor Romney putting being capital on the back burner focusing instead on taxes and Medicare campaign insiders -- back Doug -- Packard -- and John but -- the -- Congressman -- of the -- and he's really going after and trying to connect.
Romney with Paul Ryan's plan right now where does it what does he get out.
Well I think he's gonna get you -- you'll make some hay out of that among senior citizens in Florida Pennsylvania and elsewhere -- off the cliff.
Yup because the Ryan Medicare plan was too much too fast politically that might be a good thing to to discuss some -- but but politically it's a bad plan.
You shouldn't be running on out and I think it will hurt him and I think it's Obama grasping at anything he can get -- -- -- I think this you know I've been very critical because the Ryan plan the problem is I've said before.
Is -- DNA of the republic would voters in their DNA believe these Republicans really want to kill Medicare vessels -- to site.
The -- voters DNA they believe Democrats want to tax and spend.
Or Brian put that plan out with no consensus I have said from the beginning as a political disaster -- embracing it is sometimes you think the Republicans.
Want to throw this campaign away.
In the in the issue is but the president's got so many problems are going to so many grounds.
I don't think that's what I would emphasize the problems the president hasn't Florida.
The race there is either deadlocked or perhaps the president appointed there's so ahead but his approval rating there is 45.
They've got to go after senior citizens because bottom line if the administration doesn't target seniors using the Ryan plan is -- Suggested they don't have a chance to win a state they desperately need -- Not going after the Jewish -- Romney is is heading off to Israel is going to be.
Meeting with that Netanyahu and you'll see the story again that -- night -- and Romney back in the opening days.
Of the seven there were close friends are gonna see that again what.

Traveling with the challenger candidate as they did in 2008.
Is though he were god in -- elected president of the United States I think -- stay home are right how -- The president.
-- he -- seems to be gaining steam the criticism of the president's remark if you got a business you didn't build that somebody else made.
That happened those four words you didn't build.
That Baghdad attacks -- core American value of free market capitalism and whether you believe in.
A social demy and democratic state with more government -- less government.
Virtually every American is a capitalist.
This plus the -- of a couple of weeks ago that the private sector was doing fine.
Shows a fundamental disconnect with the president -- in the right direction -- been several.
Arguable gaps real gap because he gets -- that tell properties got problems in the I think you know there are telling homes just like Romney's had some about.
You know -- about firing people whatever their sure -- Bob Murray caring about not war -- about the but you know what those things he has to challenger this is the president distances economy and he's up there but that problem with that is.
And I don't -- all the -- you complain we didn't say if we admire our entrepreneur or.
A ratio how are you remember that name yes yes you know that's up he doesn't mention -- -- the validates a job.
Council and as a marriage up we got thirty seconds left wanna run through your VP predictions John.
I predict that we will not have a selection until the Olympics are over and in that two week period from the end of the Olympics to the Republican Convention the governor Romney will look at the race Siewert that and I think you'll pick.
Senator Portman of Ohio -- and run any risk losing a US senate seat potentially.
What way to set we have Republican governor in Ohio so if he can't win and if I were at or -- we have already an election there after they're they're more -- -- right now winning the president's so it's going to be -- -- -- -- Well I disagree I think it's one exploded in probable image they would you not doing he is not picking what he should do someone who might appeal to independents in two different.
Condi Rice most of all Mitch Daniels an even Jeb Bush those urging changes in a way that would be positive.
But not you're gonna end up with if you don't -- of a colonial and up with the other boring.
You know me I -- I would agree with -- hat I would agree with pat.
