President Obama telling the American people there is one pledged that he will always keep.
Four years ago I served and I'm not a perfect man and I wouldn't be a perfect present and that's probably -- -- -- governor Romney things I've kept.
I also promised that -- fight every single day.
On behalf of the American people in the middle class and all those were striking -- the middle class I've kept that promise and if you -- forming.
Then I promise -- fight this is sort of a second term.
Now the Jen -- traveling Press Secretary Obama for America campaign good morning here and thank you for your time in Denver my -- I ask unedited as this -- -- long would give me four minutes.
The -- -- says that he was a clear winner on substance.
I you know I have to say -- Mitt Romney may have scored some style points during his theatrical well practice debate performance last night but.
At the end of the day he failed on the facts and I his credibility.
Really didn't pass -- bar I think the American people are looking for an.
As we shuffled through the debate transcript over the next few days and look at what he had to say I think what the American people are left with is his doubling down on that's rising Medicare.
His magic map using a magic calculator to pay for -- tax plan.
I he says he's going to -- up fight for education -- wants to cut the education budget by 20%.
And that just doesn't sit well with.
People who are making decisions across the country.
All right let me stop you there because you caught a theatrical magic map David Axelrod conceded today and MSNBC.
That for governor Romney this was -- were strong performance.
Do you concede the same.
I I conceded that after that after practicing more than any candidate in modern presidential history he delivered on his attack lines but I don't think you -- it was just -- Internet -- and see if it was just practiced that.
Brought a winner for governor Romney.
I think practicing and practicing obviously paid off for him but you know at the end of the day people are looking closely his policies -- double down.
On a number of the failed policies that have been.
A huge problem for that campaign and it's -- low Florida.
Unstoppable -- -- because whether it's practice or not you just concede to.
Romney won well at.
I -- edit theatrical thing you know above has performance that you may email instant style points -- but I think people are looking at the choice in -- -- are not making a choice based on style points and making that choice based on substance apparently you know -- -- this energy and it's got got a guy you know got it sold during the debate.
-- to -- -- -- to get to react to these snap -- 67%.
On CNN's say Romney won a snapple on CBS 46%.
Romney was a winner and there was another poll on CBS 56%.
People say that they like.
Mitt Romney now more than they did before what do you think about that.
Well I don't think that you can judge the long term impact of the debate by instant polls the night of the debate.
I think people are going to be looking closely at what Mitt Romney said last night what the president that last night.
The president made clear spoke directly to the people at home he's gonna fight for the middle class is going to.
The American people from -- Romney Ryan plans about tries Medicare is gonna make sure we don't overturn Wall Street reform.
And Mitt Romney and prove that he's going to say and do anything to become president fact checkers -- out and a good day today they're pretty busy eating a lot of copy it -- about.
Did you want your -- to fight more last night.
The press didn't go into last night -- -- checklist of attack lines he was speaking directly to the people at home.
He went to speak to the American people like adults and lay out his economic policies.
Lay out his -- that wasn't my question did you want him to fight back harder last night than he did.
I think he thought -- pretty hard when Mitt Romney failed to give details on -- tax planning thought back pretty hard.
Against -- about tries Medicare and those are issues that people care about no one's looking for.
And attack dog in the White House they're looking for someone is going to be a steady leader.
I think the president exhibited that last night.
Now another week and a half we wait for around two Jen -- thank you for your time here about Leo have been -- get war.
Cats are not appreciate it Martha what's next --
