Jobs in America lower prices stop sending money to countries that don't like us that she's played number one.
I -- the Obama campaign saw that exchange differently.
They released a statement about it saying quote congressman Ryan can't.
Attend his own campaign rallies without being called out for failing to provide specifics about what Mitt Romney would do if elected.
But is that really what happened to joining us to set the record straight is that concerned voter.
From Brian Sell us.
Worst thing that weren't enough.
Good morning Allison analysts say thank you for letting me.
Set this record straight.
Well it's a pleasure so as you know the Obama campaign has taken that exchange that you have a constant ride and they said they you were calling him out is that what you're doing.
Hole I was -- that I was just there I had no idea it was going to be opened for questions.
Had no idea what it was going to ask him I had the opportunity.
And to you know quote.
-- -- you know as the economy stupid and so at well -- -- ask him what business plan you know he's right there in front of me he could -- -- he couldn't.
You know he could not turn away from -- and if he started spinning at that hey I can find out and that man looked right at me and point -- told me.
Exactly what they are going to do you say you were satisfied with his answer.
I was completely satisfied.
I mean he he.
It's had five -- things he told us.
And he was.
That the Obama campaign said that I had called him out right so how do you feel about that their campaign claiming to speak for you.
I endless email -- that's the way they do it and I thought if they wanted to know what I was calling him out.
They should've contacted me.
It just -- me realize that.
You really cannot believe everything that you see because I was actually at the rally.
And -- news that.
I knew what I had asked him and they knew it he said.
And it just -- it surprises me he was very specific I have to do -- listen to his answers it took him eight minutes to answer that question.
-- -- he was so specific and when they stayed that they're not being specific you know we -- other new case casters or the Obama campaign I'm just really surprised.
Of course you wish as you said that they had called -- Let's tell.
Viewers a little bit about who you are just -- they know the context you worry long -- registered Democrat you say since you were eighteen years old.
But somehow you became disenchanted and now for the first time you are basically -- declared.
-- voter so so is your take on what you've heard and seen in this campaign so far.
I can not believe.
Holland everybody is that.
-- I want but this.
I cannot believe how what one person said is -- is misinterpreted by everybody.
I sit there and they've really tried to pay attention I bounce a different -- -- to see what everybody is saying.
And one day I will actually -- campaigns say something and the next and the news.
They're saying well at best that what they said that I -- -- debate I watched Mitt Romney.
Tell President Obama you know that's not what I said.
But yet nobody seems to believe they don't want to believe committee's point blank how down so.
Is to me this is just you have to read through everything you have to pay attention and and I say I am.
I'm really scared about the direction this country is going.
And I am taking some of my personal leave some putting them aside.
And I am voting for somebody who I think can.
Take this economy a completely different direction and I think he will use his business sense and bring in all the people that he knows.
It is not going to be about that favors failed him he's still look at their rats amaze me is to say this person can do this job this is -- that -- put.
To fill that office right now.
