When he says that.
I do believe that we need four more years and let me tell you why when you look.
Jobs lost -- month before he was inaugurated.
Three and a half million jobs.
Four and a half million jobs created.

He's withdrawing the troops.
In a responsible way from Afghanistan.
In the way that he said he would.
He's addressing and -- -- not in a very aggressive balanced way the issue of the deficit.
You know a lot it's been said about.
Simpson Bowles commission bipartisan said there we've got to have a balanced approach to.
To addressing this deficit that's what the president's done.
He's proposing four trillion dollars in spending cuts.
Much as Simpson -- that.
What he's not doing.
Is cents a bulls would an increase taxes on the middle class instead.
He's increasing taxes on the top 2% of America back.
All he's doing is putting them were they were during the Clinton years when we.
Generated 23 million jobs and when President Clinton took us from.
The deficits created by bush 41 to the best surpluses in our nation's history so.
I gave him an a for effort.
That he's done he gets an aid for putting -- in a better situation today.
Life is better than it was four years ago and now the question you can ask he has.
There are a lot of unemployed people and there are.
But according to -- analytics.
Not the Democrats.
This is a nonpartisan.
You know entity.
They said if we keep on charting the path ahead will create 212.
Million jobs in the next four years so we've got to stay.
The course we've got to understand this election will be.
But importantly elections are about the future that it just seems more divided them.
-- I've been involved in -- elections now since 1984.
I mean I've been voting since before that since 1972 but it did actually you know.
You know knocking on doors and talking ability since then it cut -- been evenly divided for a long time.
I think there's more partisanship if that's what you're saying there's no question there's there's.
A lot more partisanship today and that was.
Frankly that was that's any Tampa obviously civil war.
I don't think people ever seen it this.
You know the -- but.
In many ways but the country's evenly divided has been for a long time.
I do think.
That when people thought about enthusiasm.
They're not talking all the people that are here.
They're not talking to the volunteers.
Who are all across the country we're putting together the most comprehensive effort.
To talk to voters.
Grassroots effort to knock on doors and call voters of any party in history so and it.
You're gonna see a lot of enthusiasm in the course.
Over the next 63 days I think we got.
I'm losing track as the -- of 62 days thank you thank you -- what -- that.
I think what -- happen when the Republicans lose this election is -- gonna realize that they're gonna have to go to -- And right right now that captured by the right fringe of their party.
America's never been.
Country responds well to experience it's always been a country it is it's focused on the main street and I believe that.
There's an opportunity for us to work together.
Budget to address the deficit to bring down the debt we can do that to get.
Simpson Bowles and what the president is going.
Is the template and by the way.
I spoke about what the president is doing that is very simpler to sensible remember simple sensible.
Is the balance of -- -- you -- cut spending.
But you got to raise revenue.
-- -- Budget Ryan -- budget by the way every time you hear mr.
The president on -- simple.
What he doesn't say it is.
All he did.
Was disbanding -- he's not doing the revenue side.
That's the balances since the bulls that's why it was bipartisan in fact.
Erskine Bowles has criticized the Ryan -- it has been a completely antithetical.
To the framework that they set up.
So all I can tell you is.
You know we're moving forward I expect this going to be a great convention and appreciate your time.
Is being my lead to me and it.
I can tell you.
I can't tell you with certainty.
The president's -- that I can't tell you.
People like Abraham Lincoln.
In the world most of this time in our country's history.
He's so we've seen Abraham Lincoln prize -- And as an inspiration to -- rules about the environment.
Taking this out of the worst depression in our history.
I think Kennedy and Clinton certainly must be inspirations -- -- -- for me but that's obvious question -- press I got to -- thank you.
