You don't know one of the convention so far as had the temerity to say that that people are better off an American because they realize it's not the case.
Governor Mitt Romney -- -- sit down interview with our own Carl Cameron on a question that Democrats seem to have a bit of trouble answering this week.
But President Bill Clinton the former president in a very vocal defense of the Obama record.
Here last night did say that America is better off than it was four years ago here's his case has now.
We want to me today no.
Is the president satisfied.
Of course not.
But are we better off than we were when he took office.
Former governor John Sununu is a senior advisor to the Romney team he's with us in Charlotte governor good morning to you and welcome back you're running ally today what I'm doing fine thank you about what Bill Clinton said -- outsiders that you -- Felix.
You'll feel it referring to.
The sense of the country moving in the right direction did he sell it last night.
Now that last night two thirds of the speech was a great infomercial for the Clinton brand.
I kept waiting for the -- -- to come out and then at the end he said -- by the way there's somebody else running for president I think I'm here to endorse him.
What what they were talking about last night has nothing to do with reality this presidency is a failure.
You poll Americans 70% of them know that there's eight point 3% unemployment out there.
Funny three million Americans not working or underemployed.
What what Clinton said that line is basically an admission.
That the president fails but then he adds excuses.
To try and excuse failure so at least we know they agree you failed.
And this line about nobody could've fixed it.
It could've been fixed this is the worst recovery we've ever had in modern history.
The president did 02 years.
Playing with -- Obama care and spending programs to send money to folks like Solyndra and the last two years he's done nothing but raise money.
205 fundraisers campaign.
Play golf club and -- times and he hasn't even met with his job council wants.
In the last seven months -- Thelma Gutierrez couldn't have been done yeah indefinitely -- dried out.
-- I his suggestion was that he did not even Superman can get the job done a -- -- you have to have a that was the impression he left he talked about the economic stimulus.
We talked about the auto bailout he talked about the health care overhaul do those three things cell and early November that could lead to a second term is that enough.
Everybody hates Obama care 60% of the public 70% of the public says they're not better off.
The auto bailout screwed -- millions of stockholders.
Invited saved a few 101000 jobs but it also sent a few 101000 jobs overseas.
And it stuck it to the Delphi folks by taking their pensions away there were lots of ways to save GM not the way President Obama did.
This backs up your argument governor unemployment rate is up.
Seven point 8% -- -- -- 20098.
Point 3% today reading left to right.
Median income is down off almost 5000 dollars and three and a half years.
Gallon -- gasoline is up it's almost doubled 184 to 382.
National debt up about six trillion dollars to sixteen.
Trillion dollars those -- the points that folks like you've been hammered home for months.
We haven't -- it was there's an easy explanation of why we have a problem and his side on the floor of this convention yesterday.
They struggled for almost an hour with three votes.
Trying to put god back in the -- a platform.
If you've ever seen a demonstration.
Of an Obama lead incompetency.
It was on that -- -- yesterday.
This crowd can't run a one car funeral they can't manage -- lemonade stand and they certainly have screwed up the presidency.
I I take it you're taking that lemonade without -- and you're probably not even a couple of the dime for collapse of that.
But -- -- it is the -- nice to everybody's got to remember.
What what is your expectation.
For president are on the I think his strongest his strongest appeal for a second term.
More of the same it'll be blamed bush directly or indirectly.
The biggest problem we've ever had I couldn't do it nobody could do it I need a second chance my grave is incomplete.
I used to teach it -- the students that came and asked for an incomplete.
We're the ones that didn't do what they were supposed to do that didn't meet their responsibilities.
That didn't understand what they should have done and they come in begging for an incomplete.
And my experience is the students that come in for an incomplete.
Could never have done it.
And that's what we've seen with this president asking for an incomplete he didn't do it last time and there's no way he could do it in the next apparently there.
It's time for a change.
Governor thank you John Sununu we'll talk down the road OK outside in the -- car museum in downtown Charlotte.
Thank you governor.
