Now Karl Rove is the former senior advisor deputy chief just after president George W.
And a Fox News contributor welcome to Tampa I'm Rory who weird case there were stated adherents are -- in the race you could cut this weather with the -- -- tear I have it is thick.
A great to see you -- Com what do you make of the brother defending the brother there well he was ask a question and he answered it looked as -- coping mechanism by President Obama at the beginning people sort of extra OK fine it's.
Things you inherited a bad deal but now justice as an excuse for weakness for failed policies he's had three and a half years.
He had control of congress could do anything he wanted to do the first two years.
And the American people are looking at it and -- and you know why are you keeping -- and again before you you're the guy in charge.
Americans want a strong leader in this is in part why the president has such low ratings when it comes to being a strong leader.
You wonder though if you look at the pew pew research numbers if it's working for President Obama.
Let me get I've got 44 to 34% who blame the Bush Administration.
Quote a lots as oppose -- blaming the Obama administration did it look it -- there's a question of what you ruined yeah are you responsible now or not I mean the president is in charge.
He's supposed to make things different if he thought they were bad.
He's supposed to make things different the other thing is like this an excuse -- Obama for example says you know it's all Bush's fault -- wait a minute.
Maybe that's a way to hide the fact that when it came time to try and reign rein in Fannie and Freddie when there was still time from keeping them from collapse in our American economy.
The President Obama will help filibuster reform bill could rein him -- I mean this is it.
The president is in charge present Obama -- for like it or not he's been an office in January 20 of 2009.
And it's his policies that are going to be judged in the -- with Jeb Bush referred to -- that it would be nice if you had fresh policies but he does not anticipate those.
Given you're 77.
He won on days away what what is the president's campaign about others and condemning his predecessor -- more importantly.
Decrying his opponent is an extremist there's no vision there's no forward looking agenda there's no positive solutions for the problems in countries faced.
And it looks like you guys run out of gas and he may be run and at a time I -- the.
Associated Press interview that was done with the president leave on Thursday this past week before went up to candid with his family.
Was quite revealing in the following sense -- talked about working with Republicans.
And a second term.
Almost suggesting that he would be the one who would it would go half way and be the great compromise -- why.
Hasn't he done that the last four years I mean remember when he got elected the first time the Republicans came -- to -- -- pro offer ideas about the stimulus bill.
And he dismissed a must and I want and cut him off.
Even he met with them in February of 2009 -- -- I wanna work on comprehensive reform our health care system in his next meeting with him was.
51 weeks later he's gone literally months at a time without either seen the Republican leader of the senate.
For the speaker of the house are talking to one of telephone this is not a guy he's demonstrated the great ability weren't.
If that is the case then perhaps his record does not reflect that but his message will.
Over the next two plus minus but he does that message saying -- little -- -- promised to do this for years ago.
So you know fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me and that he's not gonna get away with shame with -- would try to fool the American people into believing.
He said I'm going to be the president not a red states and Blue States -- the United States but he's -- on the hard left of the Democratic Party with little regard for the Republicans.
And doesn't even infect the the vice presidential running mate.
Of Mitt Romney Paul Ryan offered a serious budget proposal the chairman of the president's own budget reform commission.
So Bowles -- North Carolina said it was a very serious proposal and added the president respond to it.
He invited Paul -- to sit in the front row at Georgetown university and he gave a speech in which he excoriated.
Paul Ryan for offering a plan that's that's what the president's -- we -- look at what he's done.
Not what he now says in the closing days of the campaign that he might do if given a second let's talk about Tampa now -- this convention day one has been essentially scratched.
You could have split screens for the next two or three days with -- storm on one side and a convention on the other how is this affected by allies.
Well it is affected by I think you've lost now one quarter of the time you had to talk about big things and granted it was it probably Monday and I was devoted to at least important thing that critique of the Obama administration everybody pretty has gotten pretty -- got that done.
But look you don't like losing time they'd already lost a lot of that time anyway because.
The Democrats because a monetary problems an electric crowd attendance at their big planned events for Labor Day had canceled the first day of their convention in the national networks.
Broadcast networks had and -- -- said what we're gonna give them three days coverage will cancel the first day coverage of as a Republican Convention so -- lost part of that audience and he anyway but it's not helpful.
If you got a four day plan will afford a narrative in the argue that narrative takes over four days.
To suddenly at the last minute to squeeze -- to throw it's good to see we'll talk again.
Throughout the week here hopefully -- and carried -- -- I don't let's go back and senator Martha right now Martha.
