There is another very clear indicator telling us exactly where the selection stands now.
That being the latest campaign ads now they tell us what each of the candidates are focusing on.
At this stage of the game the contrast is staggering now on the one side you have a desperate incumbent.
Who wants to distract you the voters and make this election about anything and everything except his failed record.
Like for example big bird -- bird and then big bird.
Criminals clintons have greed.
Listen -- -- over them one man has the guts to speak its name big bird big -- big bird it's neat it's very big.
A menace to our economy.
He knows it's not what we you have to worry about it Sesame Street I'm gonna stop the subsidy to PBS Mitt Romney taking on -- He'll let you play coming up next.
All right so that's -- hard hitting message coming from team Obama maybe we'll hear about Shamus the dog got coming up later in the campaign.
Now as -- aren't she points out the president has relentlessly talked about big bird and Elmo now on the campaign trail for days.
Mentioning those characters at least thirteen times however he's not uttered a single word about the Libyan terror attack or how he plans to fix the economy.
Now big bird must be this week's version of the republicans' dirty air dirty water and throwing granny over the cliff.
Now meanwhile conservatives and focused on the real issues of the day.
Issues like putting Americans back to work bringing justice to those terrorists that killed ambassador Stephens and three other Americans last month.
And that is the -- that the White House has only made more difficult because of its campaign of disinformation propaganda and distortion.
An American ambassador was brutally murdered three other Americans killed and organized assault with automatic weapons and it's a security request submitted for months earlier tonight.
Even after two bombings preceding the anniversary of nine elevenths.
And fears of being killed.
Expressed by ambassador Stevens himself.
-- and president Obama's officials insisted they had no actionable intelligence requiring increased security.
Then the attack and Obama and his administration wouldn't call it terror.
For fourteen -- But the evidence is piling up on Barack Obama.
Powers of the attacks Obama officials received numerous intelligence reports indicating the attacks were organized and al-Qaeda was.
Communications intercepted between our -- Break.
-- The terrorist.
So it was in Obama's interest -- not -- the attack -- terrorism.
The intelligence was there.
New signs of terrorist.
-- -- Pretty serious what's more important big bird or let's see security request that were denied lies that this was a spontaneous attack on our consulate.
And murdered four people protecting al-Qaeda in the process that is they were the ones responsible and then of course telling you the American people this was spontaneous.
This was due to -- Internet movie trailer that was released in July had nothing to do with America or the anniversary of 9/11.
And joining me now with reaction -- the very latest ads as well as rumors of a major staff shake up in Chicago Fox News political analyst Juan Williams and the author of the great destroyer David Limbaugh.
-- let me you know I want to play the president here this is back in the last campaign want.
I want but think about this while you're listening to this big bird big bird Elmo big bird Sesame Street.
The dog on top of the car and laughing.
Bain Capital war on -- -- contraception.
And -- but the important stuff.
But Obama predicts this happens to campaigns that are in trouble does what he set.
Because if you don't have any fresh ideas.
That you use stale tactics to scare voters.
If you don't have a record demand none.
You paying your opponent as someone people should run from.
You make a big election.
About small thanks.
That's Obama no fresh ideas scare tactics and he's running on.
Small things because he's failed the -- wanna talk about his record it fits him perfectly.
John first -- -- let me say -- I happen to agree with governor Romney about PBS NPR I don't think that the the taxpayers the government should subsidize that I think.
Big bird is the -- -- successful and in fact masterpiece -- gym -- that you -- unite those folks are successful the marketplace will support them I think.
Viewers those shows will support the much -- they support this -- so.
I think they should go out and take the power to our own mind I'm a -- I want to have big bird how can -- -- -- and -- remember -- you're on that side of the -- that you're saying that that Obama is using big -- -- we are all big -- is -- -- open it but I must tell -- small this is this is a president that is dealing with small barely enough problem here is that if you went.
Governor -- introduced the idea of cutting off big bird's neck.
He was talking about cutting line has 100 probably wind -- -- -- -- Of the federal budget 111 person 1100 of one who put and it went on.
He's making me wait a minute that's not what was the fact that he wants but he was okay but they're rich raise the middle -- -- not -- any other way to pay for -- He was saying that it we have had to borrow money.
In the name of our children and grandchildren from the bank of China.
To fund something that doesn't meet his standards he will cut it David Limbaugh yet -- okay go ahead -- let David speak.
I -- -- one this this could be a rare moment I met I met him at the at Tampa and and we agreed wants that the the lunch table now we're agreeing again.
It -- -- to make a big deal out of these non issues and direct contradiction.
To what he's been talking about this is pure projection.
He's making this into a big issue because he can't talk about his record.
And -- really Sean.
What we're seeing is a wholesale failure in his foreign policy.
Revealed by this emerging scandal on Libya we're we're finding out.
Obama the Obama administration was warned they were requested aid by ambassador -- they refuse to put up a barbed wire stance because it might look bad.
Just like it might look bad to investigate leads at the Fort Hood.
Terrorist and as a result twelve or thirteen people killed -- -- four people killed here.
And then they lied about it being a video when they know when they knew immediately afterwards.
They had direct evidence that this was a planned attack not as a result of a video.
But to admit they otherwise would show the wholesale breakdown his policy which is to say if you're nice to al-Qaeda.
And -- them.
They will like us and we won't have any more war with them.
The truth is Laura Logan has even pointed out how.
-- -- -- that was there's no such thing as a kinder and gentler Taliban there's no such thing as an al-Qaeda that doesn't want to kill us even if we remove ourselves in the Middle East.
I -- -- -- I actually hope Obama brings up Shamus the dog again because I'll tell that that's how small an incident you know why is that I know how to play the tape of Obama admitting that he -- -- If that's not all of them all -- wanna go let them let them play small ball here.
But those -- know -- -- -- but shot here's why it's not small ball this was a dodge remember big bird is introduced to the big conversation by governor Romney and that's the white hot resent what you don't you know I -- -- -- for it when I know why I let it.
He did it at that died so you would -- that talk about the fact.
That he distorted you don't you're not and I don't want an active on the -- to more and we talent in the days that I'll never raise taxes on the middle class and -- let him forget forget about the -- I want my -- to their pay homage mama gives us sick.
-- -- our -- -- and what Romney saying is if you're gonna borrow forty cents of every dollar we're spending.
I am going to -- out -- superfluous spending that this president won't cut.
That is an important and I kind of slack cut taxes for the rich and that what a promise to balance the deficit and found no that is not -- raise taxes on the middle class and there's no way to do it I don't think about what it already has.
Then I made I -- seem like I'm the fiscal responsible person welcome back David you're up next I promise coming up for all those little -- said.
