It's not gonna say some -- for.
In Denver at 2 PM today.
Just a few hours before the debate started.
Romney did his debate prep.
And when you go to 5000 feet exactly.
And you all have a few hours to adjust that's interest.
I don't know.
Who is the person is saying that think just think that's crazy.
All right the next presidential debate is ten days away.
Well governor Romney keep his momentum going -- will President Obama do better this time at a lower altitude.
Indiana congressman Dan Burton and Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee join us.
Good evening congress people how are you this evening.
I think you -- right so what we think about that -- you think you -- about the altitude I'll start with you.
Congresswoman Jackson -- They claim never came from President Obama nor his camp -- nor any of us who.
They think instantly about these issues frankly my view of debates is that debates don't govern.
And debates don't provide affordable care health care for millions of Americans it doesn't provide investment and innovation.
Provide opportunities for our young people for higher education.
And it doesn't provide a safe and secure nation.
That's what President Obama can stand on over the last couple of years and certainly can stand on improve.
All right the -- -- got to know them legally can appreciate your saying that at that but why couldn't the president say that himself congressman Burton tell us why.
Like for them and say what she just sat.
Well you know I can't comment about what the president did or didn't do all I can say is it to me he was totally and prepared.
And he didn't know what was going on.
He looked like it was somebody that was caught a deer in the headlights.
And governor Romney was very well prepared he knew what -- he was talking about anyone took it right to the president.
And when you do that it shows to the American people that you really are in a position to govern and lead.
And the president as I said before he he was lost.
And if you didn't they have a strong political persuasion you would've felt sorry for the guy because it was terrible.
And so I think that they governor Romney showed very well that he has the ability.
The intellect and he's aware of the issues so that he knows how to be a good president and I think you really gained a lot -- And that debate.
All right Ed and -- each -- you want me and yet how you're going for the -- side that's fine but but going forward.
Will the president who didn't were bought any of the claims with any kind of statistical.
Numbers for someone -- so Smart.
Be able to convince the American people congresswoman Jackson I'll go do you Jackson Lee.
That he is in a position to you know me say that his administration has done some.
Thing for the American people in the last three and a half years.
A judge -- love to take that question first of all let me say that governor Romney was pumped the other night we understand that.
-- he had buried himself in facts he wanted to overcome.
Some very dark days that he had.
I remember the words always will -- clear that you're not entitled to food health care or education or going over to what about greatest allies -- Insulting believe -- when he gets up high when -- get that I did Massachusetts.
Out there according to.
About -- judge.
Yeah when you're in the dark of night and there are no cameras and you say what you believe -- people in America did not deserve health care bold.
All our education so as it relates to the president is -- -- as it relates to the president Ted isn't man.
Who said that with 87%.
Of the opposing party in the state of Massachusetts he got health care passed.
How you possibly get to that health care -- Hal.
They -- -- the Democrats in the state of Massachusetts were prepared to compromise and work together.
Why not put -- in the United States congress congress let -- -- but the president shows how he can govern.
By the successes we've had and the economy turning with a seven point 8% and something we don't like.
But it is making a difference a hundred foot caught up and dark green I have -- -- about.
Well let me just say that if anybody thinks this economy is really burning up the track.
They're just not paying attention.
We had 26 million people that are unemployed.
I think we have 47 million people on food stamps the economy's foundering.
Business will not invest or expand because they don't know what the future holds for them if this president gets reelected.
And and a lot of business or leaving this country and go on overseas because of that.
And if you have viable.
There was a congressman I gotta go but isn't that what the president was talking about is that you get a deduction if you go overseas and that that senator Harry got to that went.
Thank you first realize that the American people are believed that the country's going in the right direction all and we are back.
We're going to call -- congressman Burton and do everything that you accidentally -- thanks so much for being with us this evening thank you -- that it Planned Parenthood dinner at a great time tonight.
