Keep in mind that -- a bit -- a preview what you can expect a big week cut next week's Republican Convention.
Formally nominating governor Mitt Romney for president Tuesday night's -- that's night number two.
Based on the following comment from President Obama in Virginia.
-- -- -- -- That's unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to fun.
Some invested in roads and bridges -- you got a business.
That you don't build Matt.
-- what it.
Tuesday night night number two this theme -- we built this here now the author of the new book who's counting health rosters and bureaucrats put your vote at risk.
John fund also a columnist for national review -- -- -- John good morning thank you before we get tonight too that we at night number one.
And night number one is we can do better simple themes how would you frame that.
Well our growth rate is now 2.3 percent that's defined as stagnation.
In other words we're betting a 150000.
Jobs a month.
That's barely enough could make up for the increase in the labor force every month so we're not getting any better.
And unemployment has been over 8% for 42 months.
How's that working for us -- them the -- number two then we built this three simple words.
The Republicans are gonna double down on the comment you just heard how will that go.
Well remember President Obama said that I'm one of the rare occasions when the teleprompter wasn't there they wanted him to be more spontaneous with the audience.
We now know why -- has that teleprompter it's not because he can't give a good speech he can it's because -- the teleprompter tells us what he really thinks.
And it's something that's far less moderate and more liberal than most Americans want so I think this -- really resonates with entrepreneurs and business people.
Who know that they work fifteen hour days to build their business.
Entrepreneurs favor Mitt Romney over Barack Obama by twenty points in the polls according to Rasmussen.
Government workers favor Barack Obama by seventeen points clearly.
The Republicans believe that the entrepreneur doors the people who create small businesses that hire 80% of new workers are gonna be receptive to that message so in your estimation that's professors a good contrast -- will be drawn.
While Obama is going to have the support of people who.
Depend on government support who worked for the government.
That constituency is pretty much locked down so Mitt Romney has to go -- people are worried -- the private economy is growing fast enough to hire more people.
You know let's face it over half the unemployed of an unemployed now for 789 months or longer.
That means the longer they stay out of the workforce the hardest for them to get a job and the more that unemployment may become permanent.
And that will make us look like your up and -- Don't.
One that you don't 2008 did you know that John McCain at 39 million people watch his speech.
I bet I bet that's a bigger audience than any other TV program out there Academy Awards American Idol.
That that was a record for a convention speech.
Well we know the undecided voters are probably three to 5% of the population they tend not to pay a lot of attention on politics they're getting on with their lives -- -- But there are some events they do tend to watch.
The speeches by each of the candidates for the convention and the debates I think those are going to be very significant events and we need to watch the polls after that.
To see how those undecided voters might have shifted over there still undecided.
What we're watching now is an events near Pittsburgh PA this is.
Where -- congressman Ryan.
-- it says we did built yet.
Which fix some -- -- theme that he mentioned just a day ago in New Hampshire when he's with governor -- so we can do better on night number one we built this.
For night number two we're gonna see Paul Ryan a matter of moments there in western part of PA which is very critical that will explain to our viewers and a matter of moments thank you jump we'll talk again.
