What did he say Jules.
-- -- -- Biggest news readership and -- gonna be on at eleven.
Of 11 o'clock 11120.
And then let that one bright spot okay that's that's the UN Bill Hemmer will -- hammer we do that that -- -- -- show every single Wednesday at 1120 Vanilla and and I've been told it's an island in the south.
That's funny because he said that when I was on this legislation.
Answer less than just one of those life yet so I you're asking about the debate you have to watch it with you -- -- -- -- It's going to be great because we've been talking about these two guys and how this could be a turning point -- game changer it.
And so many people I was -- the Wall Street Journal today they get the new poll out where Romney is you know three points back -- -- forties.
Up like that.
But 15% of the persuade -- are waiting for tonight.
And they did some interviews with some people -- I'm -- -- base my vote on whatever happens tonight.
You know I think it in many ways Mitt Romney has to deal not only with President Obama but also with Bill Clinton.
Because -- -- them on the window Clinton looked into it everybody's eyes and said no president could have fixed this economy in four years.
I think that I caught the moment of absolution it was like he absolved people who are on offense who said that that they felt the president had done a good job but they still wanted to vote for him.
And those people to -- and said OK if you say it's okay.
Then sign me back up again and we did see a bomb for President Obama in the polls right after that and I really believe that it was largely due.
To Bill Clinton giving everybody the NB okay that it was okay to stick around to sign a performer -- given how many people believe that I mean a lot of people I don't I.
-- -- that it doesn't I'm just no way I -- and it was very effective argument on his part.
Well because when you look at ethnic and you think about what bill press Bill Clinton did during his presidency he had great economics.
Didn't -- -- well for him very with -- with the impeachment thing there at the end but you know.
You know it's like.
Absence makes the heart grow 400 people have vote warm feelings about when he was president the economy was -- But I think one thing that you know Mitt Romney for his side needs to make clear.
Is that under his plan.
The wealthy actually would pay.
More than they -- now because they will be clearing out a lot of the loopholes.
You know loopholes that are used -- for optimism in all kinds of ways to pay lower taxes for the wealthy so in that sense and -- and he's been criticized for not being more specific about.
What those are.
And maybe that that's in just criticism but will it effectively if that happens then that wealthy in many cases would end up paying more and -- right.
Frustration I think he's gonna get specific to make -- -- I read a story somewhere that they're thinking about getting rid of a lot of the deductions that -- at the higher end.
Are able to utilized and instead giving people a 171000.
Dollar deductions first time I've heard that and number and tell -- -- that's like.
You're not going to be able to deduct your home mortgage insurance or -- home mortgage backed.
Worried it tests interest or the health care costs GAAP -- -- be able to do that were really give you 70000 dollar credit -- -- a blanket.
-- the top lower your taxable -- -- and I think that's one of the one of the raps against Romney is he hasn't been specific I got a feeling he's gonna get specific tonight about some stuff yeah.
Well that that would be very interesting -- -- I think that I think in some way as.
It and that kind of does has -- -- -- channel.
Sort of a little bit of Herman Cain and a little bit of Rick Perry the things that really got people excited about that early on in the primaries right was -- they were very specific with a 999 plan which you know didn't end up.
Being as something that propelled Herman -- to that nomination of course.
But it was and I did -- people grabbed onto and they they liked that idea of a more simplified tax cut why can't seem fair across the board.
With Rick Perry -- -- can't and I think if Mitt Romney can you know sort of take a little bit of something from that and and simplify for people and say I think an -- -- -- support.
Talk about giving people a fair shot and everybody you know paying their fair share those are exactly you know what those ideas come back to -- And it -- meanwhile the president is going to appeal to his face he's gonna talk about how.
Under Mitt Romney presidency the middle class who pay higher taxes even though Mitt Romney has said he'd like to lower everybody's taxes and get -- -- also.
-- the president's got.
Statistically when you look at all the numbers regarding the economy the president's got a mighty tall mountain to climb but because he's had a compliant.
Mainstream media a lot of people don't know about the bad numbers.
The -- to see how the president handles Mitt Romney is wealth because that's been an issue that.
Has has been problematic from Iran and I think that that -- Obama campaign has decided it once again.
That that is something that resonates of people that people feel like he's distant analysts you know and you look at other -- presidents like President Bush.
The Kennedy family who you were able to have that sort of common -- of people that has.
In some people's mind and made in Iran announcing it -- it be -- -- you sit down and chat with them is -- and I both have.
But it but it's been difficult but that's been difficult -- for him to GAAP.
I had a feeling tomorrow morning we were talking about it we're gonna have lots to talk about that because -- was gonna happen watch that channel tonight 5 minutes before 9 eastern time.
As it commences the rumble in the Iraqis.
The big dance in Denver.
And -- mania -- that the that the talk couple lose.
And a large air and it's.
Room that says it played bad Bill O'Reilly and so does your financial rumble in the large air conditioned rooms look like that hazardous -- think you were thinking -- there into CF.
See you tomorrow in your regular coming back at 9 o'clock tomorrow apple -- -- and everybody.
I'll be done by him.
Wouldn't get -- -- pat pat pat pat pat pat yeah.
