This picked up.
Of congressman Paul Ryan and how does that appeal to governor Mitt Romney's base.
I did no doubt this thing re excites a base that already was excited to defeat President Obama the real question Kelly.
That we have to look at the next couple weeks as does this get the Republicans voters who weren't already gonna vote for the Republican -- And that is a fundamental question gentlemen ordered there's another question.

Meat to the argument that the president has been making that key social programs aren't playing that taxes for the -- what -- -- to go down.
You do it why were -- any dissenting voice for the Republicans of over it saying this moment seems a Democrat.
But you know Republicans have a death wish sometimes it seems to me that death which -- around.
Wanting to go after things that terrify voters into being frightened of them.
Many commercials I think Paul Ryan's handling of that was disasters.
In 2010 we solve the 23 district in New York.
Where you don't brought coffee cup name Republican treatable.
The Democrats -- feel energized as Doug said.

It should be noted that Erskine Bowles wrote.
A column today an op Ed piece that he.

So even in that regard there's still a lot of but there there's there's a lot of what but wouldn't Robertson Santa -- Clinton Campaign has -- -- -- -- is at least somewhat in the hope we better than the campaign we've seen with the -- with no bottom.

Given the prevalence of Hispanic and African American and -- low income white voters I believe the Ryan plan plus the aggressiveness of -- Puts.
Both Nevada and indeed the southwest.

You'll -- lot of people retiring the bottom but you look at Pennsylvania Florida and Iowa and I've got to go oh my gosh if Medicare is the issue.
You have to you will be some real questions about whether that's has.
He's unless the word real quick because -- -- to show them the full screen for Latino decisions basically showing that President Obama -- 69%.
To governor Romney's 20% citizens this is the biggest to stress on wall is that since winning the nomination in effect in March.
