And welcome back just a week -- from the first presidential debate and about six weeks if you can believe it away from Election Day so what campaigns do indeed the last critical weeks to win the election.
Let's bring back our campaign insiders John the VA Pat Caddell and Doug -- thank you so much -- we're sticking around.
So let's begin by taking a look at the electoral map it's changed a little bit we now have.
President Obama picking up Wisconsin -- we now have 247 -- 191.
-- to meet with the says Heather is that the consolidation.
That President Obama needs to use of current.
Governor Romney needs to change the dialogue we've been talking.
For months here -- John and I about the need to have a positive message to revitalize the economy.
Create growth and ultimately create jobs the governor's got to do that quickly he's got to do that boldly because as we were saying before Florida.
-- Ohio Virginia one of those states goes to President Obama this race is an opportunity to do that in the first debate yeah.
Yeah but you know Yogi Berra said it wants it's getting late early now I'm gonna wait another nine days for the election that would there will be 35.
From the first debate to the election he needs to.
Get this thing going now and get the theme of whatever it is he's gonna say in the debate about changing the economy here's my plan.
He needs it this coming week leading into the first debate the -- Problem is not campaigning -- we've we've talked about these swing states are slipping away.
And he's not out there wouldn't reveal that was New York Times -- a week ago the president schedule me to midnight and I wanna go on campaign.
You know Ron he's doing one -- -- a day would it -- his body lying drug addiction plus Romney needs to deal with the fact of how passively or let's be honest.
-- three campaign teams on the field.
What does Obama want -- -- and -- national media.
The mainstream media which is -- which -- decided to do its role in with the president in a way unprecedented in our lifetime.
Let me tell you something you started to -- this half hour today about what's the new news from will be.
On the on ABC and NBC the day -- meet the press and on doorstep while not a word about the fact the White House want basically.
Misspoken -- or lied about whether or not this thing was -- all the video of what happened and look it was a terrorist attack.
-- we have pictures of the body of the bastard being dragged to the street.
There are forty embassies were attacked last week on what day -- there wasn't footage of -- networks.
Never in my lifetime has the press decided not only to say we're for someone and help them but basically stopped telling the American people -- truth about something important.
Romney -- walked off foreign policy.
But did not pat about me say this as a Republican if when you run you know.
The media is going to be against you a -- but several white from -- and I know I agree but this time I knew it was going to be like this that there in the tank to get the first African American president -- -- -- realize that Romney.
-- yeah -- also I was gonna say there and Romney needs to step up and do something bold to counteract this -- And any needs to run against them in -- yeah.
Put an ad on TV with your plan and say this is why should be president so it.
And and eight other states and -- life point based -- -- best finish.
But also all the old Republican my colleagues to these people are doing and why are they putting some of those -- -- in saint the American people listed look.
What you're not being told -- last week Friday we had the highest number Gallup released a poll showing that 60% of the American people -- -- the media could not be trusted.
It's the highest number in history that they will not tell you the truth that -- wouldn't you.
What is paralysis -- the Romney cannot handle the whole public can -- army coming quickly assess I think there are three of us are with a term we use.
Is we are baffled.
Over the Romney campaign we do not understand but no campaigning for a week one of them today.
The weird fundraising how we bent being outspent and out of one race we were told by everyone that they raise more money than any challenger ever now we discover since we were on last week.
That he doesn't have.
Half as much money as we thought.
And their 32000.
Donors who gave him the maximum in the primaries who haven't given -- -- in the general election.
That would be worth 81 million dollars for the run for what -- the mom.
But if you know that the -- in the pocket for the democratic campaign and -- you -- you have someone like the vice president out there miss speaking and being allowed to.
You don't have a lot of options perhaps he said an -- -- do it.
