Every week viewers vote for your choice on line in this our Friday lightning round this week Israel Ron latest one with 31% of the votes.
We will get to that momentarily but with all the shake up at the convention just days away we thought would start there.
And Romney now will speak on Tuesday night Carl Cameron reported that in the show it's moving from Monday since the network broadcast network said they were not going to cover.
And Romney's speech on Monday.
Big deal what about that Steve.
Well there's been something of a scramble over the past few days too accommodating and Romney when it became clear that the networks -- not a fact going to be covering her on on Monday night there was talk serious talk.
About switching her Thursday -- -- Marco Rubio to Tuesday night.
There is I just got a statement you know to me by Matt -- saying that senator rubio campaign manager campaign manager for Mitt -- -- that senator rubio and graciously offered his spot and Romney so that you can speak in prime time on Thursday.
But they wanted to keep.
Rubio where he was because he's such an important figure in the future the Republican Party to assets for Romney obviously and Romney a big asset that.
Humanize him right to.
Yeah -- they really like I said before they really are trying to emphasize the biography of the family.
The personal side such as it is of Mitt Romney and attempt to.
You know -- -- -- a little bit when the voters are starting to focus and does this tell you what a big gas that they believe -- Romney to be that they would.
Shuffle things around so.
She's -- incredible -- book.
They have these if the elections about the economy on performance.
On ideas on plans Obama is nowhere near to winning the only reason -- just this.
The he's more likable by huge margins she humanizing -- she's incredibly attractive.
I think she she speaks with a kind of -- that he doesn't have having her out there is essential.
Having -- on Tuesday and we want to focus you can have a and our apartment called Sweden's Harris -- the start with her.
And then you gonna get that Chris Christie.
You know all kinds of founder of the folks -- this administration will make for a really pushed it.
-- Sticking on convention topic obviously this week with the comments of representative Aiken in Missouri.
Democrats have been pouncing on Republicans saying that there.
Views on abortion are radical on that the Republican platform is radical.
The Democratic Party platform.
Take a look at how it's written in 2008 were expecting it to be exactly the same the Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe vs.
And a woman's right to choose.
A safe and legal abortion.
The 2004 version of that in the DNC platform said abortion should be safe legal and rare.
So the question is about partial birth abortion and what the president then state senator.
Voted for when he was in Illinois.
We talk about extremism we're talking about -- -- case -- a congressman nobody ever heard of who's -- candidate for senate of one state out of fifty on the one hand on the other hand you have Obama who's the president.
Who took a position partial birth abortion which is scandalous.
-- Moines and the great democratic senator of New York.
Said is he Kovalev infanticide.
And we have Obama who's been a long supporter of it that's extremists.
-- Well IE I think whether the Republican Party and in total almost has called for -- -- to step out of that race.
Except for a few leaders in the conservative.
The Christian observance of a guessing of the Republicans.
-- a nice try for trying to change the subject -- partial birth abortion this week.
I think senator to be or would be senator -- Performance is overwhelming that will continue to overwhelm it.
The main point here though is I don't think the voters relish discussion of abortion right now right which -- why would be dangerous other Democratic Convention right to spend a lot of time.
Not if you can portrait not if you are teamed up with the Republicans for trying him.
-- as extreme as everybody agreeing that he's an extremist I don't think the voters relish.
Having dispute and.
Me who's changing the subject here and is that this is yet another democratic -- on this film this is another attempt by Democrats to avoid talking about the economy and Obama's record.
They've been trying to make this war on women case.
For six months and they just haven't been able to -- changing the subject desperately from a weekend that was so I don't know what we're trying our goal from the abortion you're talking about going to talk you're talking about.
A discussion that Democrats initiated on abortion depart from partial birth abortion verses.
A discussion and a campaign about the economy in the future of the country -- -- -- -- you know they can initiated the discussions and that is nonsense the president wants to be talking about the so he doesn't have to talk about his record I've got to get sick from.
-- Israel and Iran quickly Charles since people voted for that promised it what's what do you think the latest -- talks broke down to that.
-- the Israelis are extremely nervous -- me a lot of doesn't even claim that they have done anything that would restrain nuclear program.
Of Iran that claim is that Iran is isolated as a result of all they've done.
This week a 130 nations are going to be showing up in -- around the leaders of the nonaligned movement.
And the Secretary General of the United Nations this is -- great achievement of this administration isolating Iran.
It's America that that's isolated and Iran is getting a free pass in developing its nukes.
To save your comments -- Iran and Israel to a later -- that's it for the panel the states --
