Paul Ryan formerly accepting the Republican nomination for vice president last night.
-- saying President Obama has shown a lack of leadership.
Was -- not long ago.
To reflect in any mistakes he might have made.
He said well.
I haven't communicated enough.
He said his job is to close.
Tell a story to the American people.
As if that's the whole problem here.
He needs to talk more -- and we need to be better listeners.
These past four years.
We have suffered no shortage of words in the White House.
Leadership and no White House.
So did he make his case to the American people let's go to town by and ask Fox News contributing editor.
And editor in chief of the daily caller Tucker Carlson good morning talker.
But that -- so what went right for specifics he even talked about Medicare saying they're trying to save it Obama's trying to raided.
What did you think over -- Well Republicans love Paul Ryan it's a Conservative Party he is a conservative icon he's capable unlike many members of congress of explaining why he believes what he does he's a rock star in the Republican Party.
-- -- -- -- -- -- As -- Medicare question the problem which -- in full riot forces.
If he gives Democrats an opportunity talk about entitlements and that's the issue of which they typically win.
Ryan Romney plan as -- flipper right around and to make.
The Romney campaign the defender of Medicare in the face of the president's cuts to Medicare in obamacare.
That's their again but that's that's their plan.
And I thought did -- pretty good job this is the beginning stages of -- so how do you think it was worth because you're saying it's risky to bring up Medicare because they don't have -- love that issue do you think worth the risk here.
Well I mean they're arguing Tucker Ronnie people they say look the Obama campaign was gonna use it against us -- it was better to go on the aggressive and be on the defensive.
The problem is that as a general matter if you ask -- most American citizens.
Which party is we give you more free stuff the Democrats win that right I mean people perceive the Democrats are more generous with tax dollars and the Republicans are.
And so on the question entitlements which are of great importance to older voters and election total lot.
The Democrats have an advantage that's starting to change in a couple of states and I think it's because of Paul Ryan's argument.
That the Romney presidency will protect.
This sacred and very popular entitlement Mitt Romney speaking tonight and what do you hope to see from him what does he have to do.
Well boy the first he's got to do is give a better speech than Condi Rice and Paul Ryan gave last night at least in the eyes Republicans those to those who really.
Really went over big among.
The delegates here on the second -- who has not make mistakes.
You know militants speeches are better remembered for foul ups than they are for soaring rhetoric I mean we will.
We -- remember you know that the governor of Texas Rick Perry's mess up during the debate long after we forget much else about it so don't make a mistake.
Try to you know impress people at least at the level -- -- -- VP candidate did and third I suppose try to define who you war seem like a decent person.
And I wouldn't put great expectations on this or any other speech at -- convention if he does find that'll be good.
All right but -- in terms of the warmth to issue for example do you do you see him bring in that on.
-- look if this is a campaign about warmth.
And empathy and who would you rather have a beer with -- who seems cooler and who's got his first songs on his iPod -- lose.
The pay -- it hits and they have -- real about that Obama's gonna beat him but -- it's it it's campaign about the economy and who's a better Steward of that.
I think he can win so -- my advice unsolicited bid to keep those questions you are right Tucker Carlson daily caller and Fox's contributor thank you so much.
