It's okay the factory continues in Tampa right now we have some inside stuff.
With our two correspondents and here they are John Roberts and rose three -- resident who thought the you've been on show a lot and we always go to you we ought to know the real inside down and dirty stuff all right James you got that.
Paul Ryan's right what's he gonna do and what's going on behind -- It's gonna speak for thirty minutes bill it's going to be a lot of it's gonna be a stump speech and if you're one of the people's been following him around as I have been hopscotching the State's -- -- -- -- before.
By and large he's gonna try and some in the Janesville Wisconsin.
And magically transport everyone here in Tampa to Janesville Wisconsin.
And -- those midwest values.
And that helps him deep thing the medics scare type tactics that -- -- expect if he's got to do it -- tax cut thing in the beginning this is where I came from us is our guy and right now my parents were.
Then he's going to.
Launching a real attack on the Obama legacy and record.
Which is going to repeat that charge about Obama allegedly raiding Medicare to pay for obamacare and then he's gonna close the summation Mitt Romney.
How detailed -- he -- get into the Medicare obamacare stuff not too -- but simply to try to continue to do what they have been doing which is seizing the offensive that issue.
Which is a historic shift if they can manage to do that for Republicans all right.
That is about 10 o'clock right little after ten.
Now Christie's Roberts was supposed to be the hammer out.
But they pulled him back I understand -- -- did pull back and tell them that they were gonna pull back I was speaking -- I think -- former high ranking.
Party officials -- still very like get taught him this morning and he -- I think Davis used Chris Christie music guys instead -- the -- he's the guy full of bombast.
Bigger than life and he thought that they pulled them back he's -- -- were running this convention.
I would have unleashed Chris -- and -- them on the Barack Obama campaign in ways that Chris Christie has been known to do out there on the stuff but didn't do last.
What I've read your earlier -- Jewish -- say that the Romney people hold him to tone it down.
The Romney people working with him to keep it toned down all right today -- -- Let me add one thing to John's excellent reporting.
I spoke to somebody this morning who has had a prime time speaking role at this convention and I ask this person.
But you have to submit your speech in advance the Romney people to Stuart Stevens in that crowd they Alter -- they did and then and this person so they asked me to tone down one thing and I didn't -- They had a a little red pencil that they -- gone over -- -- cl yes it feels it's just like that that that I talked to talk to Christine that the the morning of his speech secrecy is again they told me -- showed it was as he teed off.
He didn't seem like he was teed off I think he knew that this was a role that they wanted to play like the good soldier who's willing to -- all -- Obama people do that as well I mean -- micromanage every standard stuff I wanted to sell folks -- the reason they can't tell.
Do who told them.
He's -- I don't want to be embarrassed and ended sources dry out -- that's -- but the solid information is that sort of so you got some announcement of its windows yet you know there was another.
Democrat who's been to many many of these things said it.
And he can he sees an attack point here.
But the Republican Party that the Romney campaign.
Is missing when it comes to the Mitt Romney's well this -- -- -- -- you know I could see an ad coming out.
Where they say Mitt Romney made all of -- much easier to Rick Scott's first -- we're facing off against each other Mitt Romney made his body creating.
-- but -- 90% of which were successful and this fellow Democrats.
The other side of that -- The opponent Barack Obama made all of his body writing books about himself.
Which narrative out -- we there have played better if you had enough that it is speculating Morris who's right -- the Obama.
People are making Bain Capital they hit big bogey man and that the -- -- and somehow.
Get that on the on the docket -- and refute that.
This convention is it looks to me and I just got here today.
The same as every other thing -- Right you're jaded guy you've been to these things fairly wide open title in 22 -- out.
Well surveyed over Landon and other end -- when -- -- allowed to smoke but isn't this just pretty much what.
It always it's pretty standard I mean this is their bragging that this is the most advanced in terms abusive use of social media a convention without walls virtual this and that but just by and large it's it's pretty much the standard stuff.
And on against what John was saying before about the like we do -- attacks that we're going to see going forward.
After the conventions are over and when we have about 65 days or so and let them until Election Day and -- one thing you're gonna see at DC a little bit from Romney and Ryan is here is that they must.
Give -- out a face saving out.
Two people who voted for Barack Obama in 2008.
And don't wanna feel badly about having made that choice but in essence the argument that they're going to be making his you can afford them any.
Oh yeah and is not like urinating it could be playing -- -- done that -- McCain didn't Hilary -- Kerry didn't you know for writing this past George W.
Bush up and down.
And people of 2000 forced despite Iraq.
Still felt some residual loyalty to drive W bush for Q did you more -- an excellent because I was waiting for -- McCain say you -- I could have been in here and we would have a avoided a lot of his but he didn't do any of that.
Now going forward I expect next week and -- Roberts that it's going to be a more negative tone toward the opposing party -- he's trying to establish themselves as the good guys and Romney you know.
That's Vijay he's -- is not we turn off independent -- -- and weighs on negativity but it's mostly positive.
-- Charlotte I think they're really gonna go after Romney and -- he's in the worst guys in the world what they've been try to do for the last couple months on the get a very effectively.
-- got so much of the month of August -- To define Mitt Romney -- his hold on caring.
Finance guy who always wants to do is -- -- they're trying to change that -- this week the Obama campaign made a lot of -- road.
July oh man they got particularly because Ronnie wasn't fighting back to watch for that could go very hot very area just -- a -- -- -- to -- his.
