Obama campaign next impressive game then -- -- to icici battle thanks for having me up.
OK first though let's look mother -- sound like she hates Republicans -- -- -- -- and tomorrow I actually I've been done here I've seen the rain I I do believe the -- that threatened he did threaten the speech tomorrow night in a Smart creative side.
Well this morning we had to make a final decision it was a moment when we had to start building the site at the stadium we looked at several weather forecasts local.
And national and there was a prediction of severe weather -- we simply were going to put 65000.
But in that position the president's going to hold a conference call those supporters who volunteer their time to get a ticket to the stadium.
Tomorrow in advance of the speech will try to find a time to catch up with them on the campaign trail but public safety had become first.
Of course no balloons you're not -- any balloons here tomorrow night the seven going to be so much dead dead.
I think you've seen the enthusiasm here in Charlotte all week and I think certainly when the president speaks you'll see that enthusiasm tomorrow night.
Ever and why she knows has been a little bit of a frosty relations between the two presents President Obama President Clinton I'm curious when -- -- Obama campaign get a copy of present excellent speech and as he does always he had -- to gain election tonight.
Well that we've been working with with President Clinton and his team.
Throughout the process -- in 2008 we went through a contentious primary there's no secret about that in relationships take time to build.
The President Obama has has spoken with President Clinton.
Consistently over the years we've worked -- this team consistently.
Over the years just look at the administration.
Plenty of former Clinton administration -- -- -- helped us -- shape policy and obviously our our secretary of status helps us restore alliances.
Around the world president Clinton's out there fund -- for President Obama.
-- sitting this dumb and I think tonight you saw him accomplish the goal that we laid out of the beginning of the convention we want to have an honest conversation about.
Where we were in 2008 the progress we've made and what more we need to do to restore economic security for the middle class.
You know seventy about this convention -- to Republicans say shed a revved up convention you -- -- revved up.
They both -- neck and neck and then the question is the undecideds do any sort of sends down the numbers again decided out there.
Well you're right that it's -- competitive in key states and has been out for a year and a half and let's be honest there's not a huge number.
Of undecideds out there but for those undecideds -- -- -- the past two weeks I think.
They wanted answers to questions about who would restore economic security for the middle class the Republicans last week -- the same false attacks against the president you heard.
President Clinton -- -- Some of those cut tonight that you didn't hear them talk about the specifics of governor Romney's policy it's and -- It's a little different I mean we get him President Obama is in the position -- -- defend this his -- and his administration may need to make promises -- -- made the promise -- ninety's didn't have this done by three years or whatever means that both both both campaigns are gonna take shots -- -- the hello I'm curious about though is that what is criticized the undecideds and Whitney just hit any sort of sense of but how many are out there and -- technically reach him I mean -- your party's gonna watch this -- the Republican Party what's left.
How -- popping his son decided to get -- In some states at zero to 5% in some states and it's five to 10% to the polls shift back and forth but I think they're looking for plan to restore economic security for the middle class that was slipping.
But even before the economic crisis is getting harder to send your kids -- college and so the question that we played out -- Do you believe we should continue to make investments in things like education and research and development.
Infrastructure -- manufacturing reduce that deficit and responsible way or should we build it from the top down.
-- and five trillion dollar tax cuts for the wealthiest -- the middle class and seniors for them.
Strip back oversight from banks and polluters and assume that the market will take care of the rest and we've tried that before let the slowest pace of job creation since World War II.
One of the coming in Washington like sensitive and I think people are very difficult times do with the other party but leadership is isn't it isn't -- leaders must be some magical wizards it's the -- -- the parties together so they can actually get something done.
I give Republicans hard times -- -- -- hard -- but this would be the bush tax cuts so published tactics they're not be debated and -- In December.
As a result the entire economy is OnStar what is what is president probably right now the senate can't get ever went back to Washington actually may actually get progress on issues there was just -- campaign but the American people are hurting what the president has called for media reaction in the hold -- visit the Republicans.
I would ask you again -- the wealthiest one expert -- I think is what you went for -- -- -- Didn't even as the -- Okay.
Ohio madam secretary good.
Casts all 188.
Votes for the president and the next president of the United States.
Hundred and -- 88.
Vote for Barack Obama.
But it's a nice day and that's if that's okay you want to -- you want to.
Spent 500 days organize and there on the ground.
Get back to my -- question.
Well listen I think what decision that will matter a lot in the state of Ohio you heard about it tonight is the fact that.
One hundreds that -- and other politicians ran for cover.
Governor Romney said we should let Detroit go bankrupt the president granted rescue loans to the auto industry won -- -- jobs in Ohio.
It's linked to the auto industry a million jobs up and down the supply chain.
-- on the line the president took action GM has been reborn I think that will matter a -- we've made investments to spur.
But growth in the manufacturing sector which been in decline since 1997 more than 500000 of those jobs have been created so we need to continue invest in things like.
Community colleges and worker training.
But to continue the growth and is there is to create the jobs of the future and Ohio you can see progress there but we can't stop there guys that -- -- my recollection certainly -- Ohio's unemployment numbers lower than the national average of eight point 3%.
What allies wondered -- is -- is that you there's a Republican governor there I how do you convince a -- of voting electorate.
It's not it's not the Republican governor that did the story it is the democratic president well.
I think what was -- -- in Tampa last week is that many of the Republican governors sounded a different tune in then governor Romney did.
On the economy's certainly heard mid western governors avoiding the topic.
Of the auto recovery because they know that the rescue once were essential there in Virginia.
But governor McDonnell had previously praised the Recovery Act said that it was essential.
Two to economic recovery in the state of Virginia.
And so ultimately I think that that few would doubt in the state of Ohio that the resurgence of the auto industry in the manufacturing sector has provided a boost to the state.
We can't cut back in areas like worker training and Community Colleges.
Like governor Romney would that under his budget plan we need to continue our progress -- the president's favorability.
Our grabbed me missing as -- we believe like a lot better numbers -- favorability.
But why do you think his numbers -- where they aren't as well actually pay it if you look at his favorability ratings cut the person with a historic.
Hi in terms of on favorability.
Is governor Romney daylight to -- -- -- 1980.
In fact in 1980 Ronald Reagan's net favorability ratings were consistently above water in carters were under.
But president Obama's favorability ratings have consistently been above water governor Romney's underwater I think that's because in states like Ohio they're not going to.
But vote for somebody who was -- outsourced -- in -- -- invested in companies that pioneered outsourcing and profited off of outsourcing jobs.
Let me -- they can't Republican backed -- thanks for haven't.
Well it is -- -- show --
