But that a vice president's debate.
The polls are split on the big debate last night.

Far -- split and far too -- to to make that consensus then or now but it.
Jimmy camp on what he makes of these comparisons.
Courses of the late great to have passed away.
Couple years ago up.
Jimmy what did you make of up Paul Ryan many of course because he was -- a possibly father love you dad emulating your dad.
And admired your dad this -- of those comparisons were were.
-- I think Paul has invited the comparisons.
Paul last night presented.
Of what a vice president should look like serious.
In command of the issues.
That was a great line about.
The mistakes that Vice President Biden has had with verbal gaffes.
But he was very respectful of the vice president he was very serious about the issues and the ideas and the choice that the country has.
And Paul Ryan understands that in order to -- people's vote.
Which by the way he did a wonderful job and his -- -- -- marks of asking American citizens to vote for governor Romney and himself.
But he's providing the ideas.
And the path forward.
And deals with the realities that exist.
In very sober minded realistic way.
And who's quite a contrast.
Vice President Biden who who was very emotional.
And you've you've heard -- time and time again but he was laugh -- it too much in my.

That your dad -- and end of that vice president gore.
Had a a substantive discussion of the issues you can debate back and forwards who who who who resonated we know won the election that your -- -- wonder whether you think on.
It was actually becoming of a vice president.
Or vice president's got -- act that way to smile and joke and -- -- -- I look I think the American people are hungry for politicians.
Care about the country before they do their own political prospects and deal as you know Paul Ryan has been willing to take risks.
I want to put ideas forward that will move the country ahead.
And frankly I I think the vice president was playing politics and and I agree with you I don't think these polls.
That -- the debate was split.
Really reflect what happened and the way that the I think there are many undecided people in this country I disagree with other polls that say that.
Everybody's mind -- decided people are just focusing the game has just begun.
We've gotten through the first quarter with these first two debates.
We've got two more for governor Romney and President Obama.
And then you've got the final week or so of the election were entering -- last part of of the first half and entering the second half and the momentum is in the right place congressman Ryan did a great job keeping the momentum going.
And Romney and -- have a plan and the vision for the country for the future homes.
It's based on re applying our American principles which is really what my dad believed -- so deeply.
-- we believe is important.
