-- before late tonight I want to examine the latest job numbers 382000.
Americans filed jobless claims last week this is much higher than was expected.
I don't know about you but I lost track of just how many awful jobs reports in a row this is but.
What I do know is that taxing and spending that doesn't work redistributing wealth that's not working at the president his side -- His hack friends in the media they don't see the reality now let's take a look back at the tail that -- keep spending for you the American people.
The economy is growing stronger.
The recovery is speeding up the economy is growing and the start adding hundreds of thousands of jobs each month the economy.
Is vastly improved from what it was.
When Barack Obama was sworn into office as president.
Just like withdraw their -- we've tried our planet -- Because -- -- -- -- he's he's made.
-- incredible strength of the American people.
America has turned the corner.
We were able to under president Obama's leadership.
Turn this economy around the private sector's doing fun.
And of course -- gonna cut the deficit happens first term and let's see shovel ready jobs aren't so shovel ready and all -- we have the 2010 recovery summer.
Joining us now RNC chairman -- premises with us how would you plan account -- this.
Well for one thing we we have to make this election about a choice of two futures for this country and so.
When there's a lot of ways that we can Connor but most importantly -- we have to just like in any case.
In court there's nothing better than going into the closing argument to and having the facts.
On your side no lawyer.
No Perry Mason is better than having the facts on your side.
I think two things number one.
Getting to the American people.
With people and advertisements.
Of the man on the street the people who may have which may have supported Barack Obama.
But are talking straight to camera talking about the things that didn't work under Barack Obama.
And then using Barack Obama's words to mean take the words of Barack Obama just like you just did in that.
And that compilation.
And showing the American people this is what Barack Obama promised the president is getting -- a lot of mean today's shot.
To -- to today the president.
He finally did it at an -- interview whether it was a legitimate news outlet called Univision.
-- and Miami and he finally said Donnie wasn't with -- with a limb for some of these other interviews that he's been doing lately I've been and they asked the president the and our president said.
-- the president said that one of the things that he learned his presidency he can't.
He can't fix -- Washington from the inside he undermined.
The entire basis.
Of his presidency the next thing you said you talk about pandering.
He said that his biggest failure as president -- that he didn't pass immigration reform -- put that issue aside but just think about this you get 23 million Americans out of work.
You get five and have trillion dollars of debt.
You've given pass a budget in over three years there's nothing that you can show here in this country that's in prove.
And then take a look at what's happening over the Atlantic Ocean in northern Africa and the Middle East and you know.
But we just have to be diligent we have to keep pressing the case then our ground game Shonn is going to be second to none and we're gonna win and on the ground.
-- look he -- he's now we know that they've told lies about Libya.
Lot of people dead they -- -- -- actually protect the world from knowing that there was a real terror attack lied about Republicans and -- -- -- about Republicans and kids with autism Down's syndrome.
Lie about cutting the deficit in half Lotta Lotta broken promises -- -- -- he got called out on one though on this Univision debate you mention immigration.
He said that when he was -- running for his campaign I can't guarantee it's going to be in the first hundred days but what I can't guarantee is that.
Well have in the first year -- immigration bill that I support not promoting and he had power houses of congress he got called out on that tonight.
Watch us well that's correct your -- -- fantasy and a promise is a promise and and -- all due respect we're getting kicked up front there's the thinking that the president.
Somebody who is all powerful and get everything done.
In our branch from your in our system of government.
IA and the head of the executive branch.
I'm not the head of the legislature.
About the head of the judicial.
We have to have cooperation.
From all -- sources in order to get something done.
And so I am happy to take responsibility for the fact that we didn't get it done but I did not make a promise that I would get everything done a 100%.
When I was elected as president.
And guarantee though it will have in the first year -- immigration bill I strongly support him both houses of congress.
Right and and and that's a fundamental issue and it's -- and -- a -- all of our folks need to keep in mind number one.
Every fantasies ever had he could've gotten done in a super majority.
In the senate sixty votes for the first year 159 in the second year.
The entire super majority of congress was in his hands for two years here's the other fundamental that we need to keep in mind when when -- insights on Barack Obama.
But that he knew the economy was running and in 2008 he won based on the economy so he can't come now and say well you know things were bad.
You -- do you plan -- -- and you said -- fix it and you didn't.
