Last thing you're the young looking your 42.
Did get concerned the people's say that I guess two young.
Now I don't I don't think so we've had plenty of presidents in their forties vice presidents in their forties.
-- but it congress fourteen years.
I'm more experienced than -- Obama did coming into office.
People know who I am that look if you want to understand me.
-- this I'm not trying to be anybody other than who I am.
I'm proud of -- record in congress I'm proud of the principles that built this country.
And what I want to do is make sure that we re apply those principles so we can revive the American dream to get people back on a path of opportunity.
Congressman Paul Ryan and Janesville Wisconsin talking to us today another clip you didn't see earlier -- back with the panel Charles.
You're -- Mitt Romney and a couple of interviews.
Just over the past couple of days days say including with Chris Wallace.
I am who I am and he quoted Popeye a couple of times.
It sounds like they're coming to the personal.
Laying out the -- -- biography here in Tampa.
Look Ryan just has this aspect to him where when he says I am all I am.
And he talks about thinking about -- the future while -- he stands on the field on that hill.
You know is is completely authentic I mean one of the reasons that Natalie why.
Users not a problem for him is because he looks a series speaks a seriously Dan Quayle had a bad roll out.
And as a result he didn't look serious although he was a serious man but he didn't look so so he's used really heard of but it's not that it's actually it's gonna help with the -- Romney ticket around me right intended.
Because he gives it an ING and and for -- Romney I mean he can't do.
He's not a natural politician -- -- Clinton -- and Obama is.
But I think he can overcome that by saying.
Earnest and sincere and that is as close as he -- I think that's enough.
That's all Americans want a company in earnest and sincere leader.
Who I think -- can can make the case I think he can period.
I still think that Mitt Romney needs to tell little bit more about himself this week I think.
He's criticized Obama for months the race and came to a draw.
There is at a place for him there's room for him to break away at the end here -- really not doing sign -- but doing it just really.
Engaging with the public and it.
Not a lot of baby holding -- anything any doesn't have to start weeping and a camera but.
I think he needs to talk a little bit more about his family his his life his toughest decisions.
Maybe you know his -- does dad whatever it is so the people at home course shopping who want to hear more about him.
Get get something more.
Steve governor Romney has said openly.
That that's not.
Easy for him.
Right -- I think you do see it a contrast a certain extent between the kind of politician that Mitt Romney has.
Kind of politician that Paul Ryan -- mean -- -- I think you -- you said he's comfortable in his own skin he's always been that he just is who years and you talk to about things he do an interview with him and he talks about.
Reading economic texts until midnight in the fall honestly that's totally believable it sounds like something that you know a politician would say maybe to sort of prove his bona -- -- on economics if that's exactly what Paul Ryan -- it looks so massage -- be clear about one think some of us on this this panel.
Don't think that 42 is very old.
Yeah I think that's pretty old and -- final word now look I think Romney has to serve a tough job he's got to try to get his like ability ratings up without seeming well like a phony -- seem like he's changing himself now yesterday talked about buying insurance that costs go and you know he's he flipped some pancakes -- document how he does the dishes.
I don't know if that's going to be enough.
But it's something -- really resisted up until now and if you don't wanna do it.
It might come off -- It's not real.
Last thing thirty seconds Charles we still have this storm out there it still may be a hurricane into New Orleans.
Still a challenge for the RNC.
Unfortunately I think the RNC -- the wrong day.
Today was a sort of lovely -- little overcast.
It was a day that they could have used Thursday -- -- going to be tough because you may have people out there -- suffering and you how you gonna.
Especially taxpayers you have to change the -- so they might have been lucky to to cancel a Thursday rather than a Monday event.
We are where we are -- an afternoon.
RNC says they'll be nimble.
