Eric burns from senior -- the Romney.
It's -- -- talk about this and on numerous other -- has -- -- good morning to you welcome back here to.
America's -- we invited when your counterpart Stephanie Cutter from the Obama team we ever booked as of late last night something else came up and she canceled and her parents so.
You get a crack at this today first of all and Libya what do you make of the news reporting now.
Well I think President Obama bill.
Needs to be held accountable for his administration's attempt to mislead the American people about what happened in and -- we were initially told.
That this was a spontaneous demonstration in response to a video that was on.
-- to the administration sent their ambassador to the UN Susan Rice on the Sunday shows to defend that position.
Now we're learning that it was it pre planned terrorist attack.
Conducted on the anniversary.
And that it didn't involve elements of al-Qaeda.
Look you know we're not going to be able to confront the challenges.
That face us in the Middle East if we're not honest about that anti Americanism is on the rise.
The Muslim Brotherhood is in charge in Egypt.
In our relationship with Israel is on the rocks.
And now as we turn the corner into the new year because of the president's mismanagement.
Of the budget.
We're looking at devastating cuts to our defense -- Mitt Romney will restore those cuts and he'll make sure that America pursues a strategy of peace through strength.
And he'll make it unmistakably clear.
That we stand by our allies like Israel -- if this story plays out the way it appears what does it suggest about what the administration's motives were in the early hours of this.
Well look I I I think it's disappointing.
That it now appears the administration was.
Attempting to mislead the American people about what was happening there as I said.
We can't begin to confront the challenges that face us overseas in that part of the world and -- -- -- -- about them.
This president would.
-- preferred not to talk about.
This attack on -- -- -- being a terrorist attack.
-- but I think we need to level with the American people about what's happening in that part of the world are you suggesting that the administration is line.
Well it appears that there was an attempt in this league if in fact.
Early intelligence reports indicating that this was a pre planned.
Terrorist attack and instead the administration was trying to persuade the American people.
That it was a spontaneous demonstration in response to a YouTube video.
And of course -- there does appear to be an attempt and we'll see what the what else has to say about this a bit later today when a move to a couple other matters quickly now on the battleground states.
On the polling they suggest that your campaign right now is trailing.
What is the campaign think about that places like Florida Ohio and Virginia.
-- we think it's a close race.
It's going to be a close race right up until November 6 I think the Obama campaign.
Shares that opinion I know the president has expressed that himself.
Some of these polls that have been called -- to the question because they.
Democratic turnout in 2012 -- we experienced in 2008.
I don't know of any campaign operative for political scientist in the country who thinks.
Democrats gonna show up in the same numbers and art are you dismissing -- years ago.
A look what what what we expect as it is a close race in the reason it's going to be a close race.
Is because we have big choices at stake here.
There's a choice between governor Romney's.
Opportunity society with rising incomes and more jobs there for every -- her real recovery.
Against President Obama -- government.
Which has resulted in 23 million Americans who are struggling to find work now we may hear more on that next Wednesday the first debate and political rights on that debate today.
About a do or die situation for governor Romney.
How do you see it.
We'll look these debates are important they're going to be three of them in.
The month of October.
But look we know what we're up against the president is any experienced.
-- a substantial debate experience.
This will be his eighth.
One on one presidential debate it will be Mitt Romney's first.
Apparently the president is going to be ensconced in.
Nevada for three days.
Undergoing intensive but debate.
What we expect he'll do -- those debates even though we have the facts.
In a strong pro jobs message on our side I think you'll see the president.
Use the opportunity to turn it into a ninety minute attack -- against Mitt Romney Mitt Romney's going to talk about.
The big choices facing America just one more thing here covering that's that's that's out -- that's sputtering and in a real recovery that -- that he can -- I'm gonna push along but I'm almost at a time -- but I really wanna get to this governor Romney said this past week I listen to a lot of advice but frankly I'm going to keep on my message.
How challenging has that been for him -- the campaign.
Knowing how much.
I guess voices of the Republican Party and the conservative nature of the Republican Party have been so vocal themselves.
In their criticism along the way how do you stay on that message.
Well look you know bill I think politics like sports people follow -- that closely everybody has an opinion but we're gonna stay focused on the economy today we just got more disappointing economic news.
I GDP growth in the second quarter has slow down to one point 3% eventually you're gonna need an electron microscope to detect any growth at all in this Obama economy.
And factory orders have slowed down they dropped 13% in the month of August.
Distance confirms that war on the wrong direction as a country.
And America can't afford four more years like the last court debated six -- where firms from thank you for your time and again we invited the Obama team and they have since declined.
We'll try again on that -- Eric thank you.
Thank you Bill -- well.
