Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us and I bad week for the Obama reelection effort that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo.
As we reported last night the bad news began with a pro Obama group putting out an ad saying the Mitt Romney was partially responsible.
For a woman dying of cancer.
It was bull everybody knows.
And the left wing media began calling congressman Paul Ryan and extremists.
Because he wants to cut government spending and reform Medicare.
Then Vice President Biden told a group featuring some African Americans that Mitt Romney and the GOP want to win -- -- of them.
When you first heard.
That Biden had made the comments Condit they're gonna come -- -- -- we heard it was phrased that way what was your reaction.
What Joseph Biden was talking about again is an example of -- substantive argument.
A substantive issues -- gamers people should be concerned about and his phrasing is a distraction from what is at stake.
Not not us assessment by the president and the subtle scolding of mr.
Biden by the way Nancy O'Dell the nice job -- that on Entertainment Tonight.
Now all the chaos is showing up in the polls a group Paul purple strategies co founded by Republican and a Democrat.
Sampled 600 likely voters in four crucial swing states.
-- -- hi how the poll has Romney up by two points in Virginia the governor is ahead by three points.
In Florida Romney is up one point over Obama.
And in Colorado the president leads by three points to be consistent I believe polls in August -- really matter.
But the entry -- Paul Ryan into the race seems to be a plus for Romney at least in the polls sold for.
We have just one more week until the presidential race kicks into high gear with the conventions and then the debates in October right now this much is clear.
The economy continues to scare many Americans.
Ideology will not be as important as it was for mr.
Obama back in 2008.
Finances will dominate the vote.
Mitt -- holding his own despite sharp in incessant attacks from the liberal media.
And the president looks tired.
From the long for years for him if the election were held tomorrow I believe Romney would win.
When a challenger is as close as -- governor is in the polling.
Usually sweeps to victory.
