Barney addicted to be here he's got a surprise for us in just a moment but first it's the conventions -- now concluded we now have been able to do our laundry after two weeks.
You say net net the advantage goes to Mitt Romney.
Yeah there was a bounce from Romney after his -- -- and then in the polls aren't all in yet but that was probably bounce for Obama.
What really was significant to me about the -- the overriding significance.
Is the two questions that he emerged from the convention.
To which will dominate the whole dialogue.
One was are you better off now than you were four years ago which the Democrats post Clinton post.
And the other ways the concept -- where the party that wants to lend you -- hand and the Republicans of the party that too much as you run you around.
-- there was a poll on that three weeks ago.
And Gallup said do you want government to leave you alone will -- -- -- hand and his 5435.
Leave me alone should.
So you have two issues here with the strong majority of the country agrees with Romney in disagrees with the Obama.
And but the amazing thing was that these conventions.
Are united together and accepting that -- that wording.
Both sides a LK bring it on how we better or for not much we Obama guy sure we are -- -- guys know when not leave me alone will give me.
And will -- they all agree that is the -- so.
When you look at this presidential race -- that shows Obama up by five points 49 to 44 that's Gallup.
And I believe it was done to say when he was done is probably post -- yesterday okay the post convention so bad how you respond.
Well -- actually -- the that the numbers will go up and down you're looking at a bounce from the convention for Obama.
But to me the crucial thing is that both parties and have stipulate.
What the issues are in the race and that's now gonna dominate the media the messaging and the debates -- and and that that that has a huge skew in Romney's -- what about the decision yesterday for Mitt Romney command -- like a few parts of obamacare payment to keep him why wouldn't say that well because there are parts of obamacare like not cut -- off people when they're sick.
Or requiring companies to cover everybody.
Those provisions are very popular the Republicans have always spoken about the need to have them they could be enacted a state consumer protection measures but I think that.
Make sense all right.
And so -- this this makes -- it's about time that -- runs for president.
Guns dubbed the dog Amanda this is your actual dog got my actual real lives -- -- in person don't.
Didn't -- and -- -- written a book about dubbed.
Running for president -- your campaign manager well he didn't hire me he hired Karl rover.
-- The point of the book that some you may read my -- -- -- goes to Washington chair where he discovers these sites have of America and our great America it's.
And that was intended really to teach children about patriotism which they normally can't get what you have -- open to there -- ample by all its main gallop got up took a poll and found arsenic out Gallup loans on a roll and.
At one point in his speech he says -- speaks to the convention.
And he says I will get America's enemies the bad guys who live overseas.
-- -- -- He's not -- well -- had better be yeah.
That's president dubs will come over there and your goal to get kids moved to watch this this were essential to understand what the processes.
You know so that when -- -- invention they can see it.
When he's campaigning but he's he is the nominee actually Becky nine party running against Felix is the nominee of the -- line party.
Of course not because they each other.
And they have their convention -- for kids to go to Iowa and New Hampshire don't give weigh in on the campaign but -- -- likes to run alongside the bus.
Actually you know -- we know she wins he's projected the winner by wolf news that.
-- -- -- Blitzer are you and I think wreck each other up at night coming up caddies that we can -- and other right Ari checking that -- runs for president by Dick Morris.
So all right and that.
