Good morning I wanna play a little bit of this clip here and that we get the reaction from the Romney team just about fifteen seconds.
By the end -- stage for an enormous interest there was nothing they can do for her.
And she passed away -- 22 days.
I do not think Mitt Romney realizes what he's done -- Rana.
And furthermore do not think Mitt Romney is concerned.
And -- what are the facts that you have found about Christmas story.
Well first off you know obviously I'm sorry for this -- loss.
-- that this had just says the debt to which the Obama campaign -- their allies will go.
To try to -- met Rodney.
President Obama went to Washington and saying he would change the culture there.
And the dirty politics had just gotten worse.
He has no rationale for reelection he had no positive record to run on and -- -- instead he's launching personal character attacks.
And governor Romney and frankly blaming him for things than just a disgusting way.
Is it true that governor Romney left Bain in 1999 this gentleman lost his job at a steel plant in 2001 I believe.
And his wife -- -- from five years after that which would be 2006.
Are those the facts as you understand them.
-- you governor Romney left the Bain Capital and 1999.
The head at the Salt Lake City Olympic Games in terror called you know -- as successful games ever on US soil -- found.
And he was busy doing that.
You know obviously it's unfortunate when anyone -- their job I had this particular case with a -- yet.
That was -- -- years after governor Romney left the company.
And I've -- up when he.
I'm you know if you know if people had been in -- that she says under governor Romney health care plan it would have -- care.
I'm there are a lot of people losing their jobs and -- in their health care and president Obama's economy.
And you that's why governor Romney's running to get people back to work your able governor Romney addressed this specifically.
I'm sure I'll be asked about it the real question is when -- the Obama campaign gonna draw a line winds to my next.
I'm ever gonna be wins -- well ever gonna be two love for then.
There's just this morning I'm Robert Gibbs refer.
It just would not back away from -- and is justice thinkable to be honest I mean to blame governor Romney for something like -- Win again not only was he not at the company during this time.
But -- he doesn't want to see no ill come on line.
I'm but it's the Obama campaign themselves had set the precedent.
-- putting out false bad after misleading ad after -- -- -- about governor Romney he wouldn't they've made it clear.
-- With Alan Colmes and -- Carlson they both agree that whether it's right or wrong.
Whether it's accurate or not based in -- -- not just the fact that it's out there it sinks in with some voters.
Do you believe that or or do you believe -- voters once they hear something gets an accurate question it the next time around.
Why I think that President Obama heads attacks have been -- -- and said -- -- ball.
On a personal level that they -- backfiring on -- he was supposed to be the candidate to change Washington to bring people together.
And how it's done its practice the politics of division.
He's trying to pit people against each -- there.
He and his allies will stop at nothing to try to smear Mitt Romney when governor Romney focused on his -- -- for strengthening the middle class.
Bringing jobs and good pay back to -- mayor -- And frankly talking about -- -- they care about.
I just come back to this at a second because the gentleman sat in the as you stated it's you know it's a sad story he lost his life partner.
But what he said in the ad is out and I do not think Mitt Romney realizes what he's done anyone.
And furthermore I do not think Mitt Romney is concerned.
-- -- governor Romney reactor that.
Well obviously governor Romney's running for president because he wants to help our country and help -- -- can't.
He's dedicated his life to public servants now because that's how he thinks he can make the biggest difference.
And so what he's talking about on a daily -- says.
Is how he can strengthen the middle class get people back to work.
And help people right now they're 23 million Americans struggling for work under president Obama's.
Economically and that just haven't worked and snow day in and day out yet.
That's all right Andrea -- -- thank you for coming on today we've reach out to the Obama team we were hoping to get them on as well.
And -- that invitation is taken out we will bring them on to defend the ad today -- Andreas own boss and thank you for that we are -- response on the other side.
