An -- seven -- did tonight's debate -- President Obama save his job or did it -- governor Romney get a foot in the White House door Obama campaign traveling Press Secretary Jen Psaki joins.
Good evening Jen and your thoughts about -- nice saying.
-- an estimate.
That tonight was great for the president he'd deliver exactly always plan what's was laying out the choice for the American people laying out for them his plans for the economy -- plans to protect Medicare from being about her eyes.
His plans to protect Wall Street reform I think we can't always -- tonight his book that people the American people don't want an attacker in chief which is what Mitt Romney demonstrated they want a commander in chief.
And the president was comments steady I think when people wake up tomorrow morning they're gonna have a really clear understanding of what he'd do.
And another four years.
All right tell me this because oftentimes and in -- debates I'm sure you've seen a lot of people have said that -- I hate the -- win lose that but anyway people how many of -- that many President Obama supporters -- -- with his performance sense but that's.
After tonight and tomorrow when the sun rises and people have done fact hey I'm curious.
Is there any saying that governor Romney said tonight they think tomorrow we're gonna wake up to and find out that the fact was just plainly wrong that he was wrong.
Well I think the biggest clearest example here is him.
Backing away from the five trillion dollar tax plan we know the math just adds up to some let's see -- the magic secret calculator we don't know about.
We know that he was misleading the American people on that point.
-- also doubled down on a lot of the policies that have been doubled his campaign for months and if you're a senior in Florida if you're a senior in Iowa I think what you can know coming into this debate as he wants about tries Medicare and that's a big problem for -- In inane debate in the -- is different than watching on TV I watch on TV which is -- the voters watching I'm curious many people thought that -- is that president Obama's -- a -- steam tonight.
That he wasn't up -- I think he didn't have as usual enthusiasm.
The distance he Davis was not his game to set an unfair.
But I think the president's goal going into tonight was to speak to the American people like adults.
Layout the specifics of his policy -- be clear about the choice in the selection.
And that's exactly what he did his audience wasn't.
Necessarily -- people -- the hall it wasn't.
The media it was the people sitting on their -- you're just tuning again.
And what they can take away from this is the president someone who's gonna fight for them and fight for the middle class of these given another four years that's what -- whether our -- -- go NN.
What do you make of the fact that governor Romney didn't just throw in the presence -- I didn't bill that comment and President Obama didn't throw and governor Romney's face the 47%.
Well the I didn't build that comment didn't work and we know that from polls because it's just not believable to take.
At clip from a longer speech and try to rip it out make it something -- it wasn't.
If I will bet you that 99% of the country has heard the 47% video and -- -- that's all about the president's talked about it were up on the at.
The air with ads and the problem -- about that for Mitt Romney is that it just confirms what people already think about it that he's disconnected from the middle class and he doesn't understand what they're gone through so.
Our goal wasn't to go in here and do a checklist of attack clients it was to deliver a clear and concise choice for the American people that's what he did.
Aren't coming up is the vice president of debate.
And I assume I don't know won -- -- of the fresh statements that I suspect that they your campaign -- get hit with is vice president Biden's remark about the middle class being.
Buried in the last four years adolescence is not the exact words but -- tell me why you intend to that fight that common.
Well that's just absurd and silly season I mean the fact is there's no one has been a bigger advocate for fighting for the middle class.
For the president's policy is then the vice president he's had not only up front seat.
He's also been a key player and when it comes to access to affordable health care when it comes to middle class tax cuts.
I investing in areas like clean energy that will put people back to work in states like Colorado the vice president has been at major advocate so.
Taking a piece from a sound -- trying to make that emblematic of some money has had a decades long career is just ridiculous and I don't think it's gonna fly with the American people.
Is there any question that -- you wanted to ask -- governor Romney tonight that was not asked.
Well look I think there's a lot more that we can learn about his tax plan and what exactly he would do there and what's clear is that you know it just doesn't add up.
There's no way to make that up there's not ninety minutes of any debate that will allow him to explain how would that add up so it -- because it simply doesn't so.
He really didn't deliver on that they're probably maybe could've been more discussion of that but we have two more debates to go.
Indeed you -- -- -- vice presidential debate and we'll be watching all the intense -- much for joining us thank you don't.
