Joining us -- in the DC bureau always a pleasure to have you on right so we got a couple topics -- through.

Mission accomplished moment on security.

Yeah it -- -- -- now investigating.
At the deadly attacks seen in Libya and saying this is going to be a major political problem.
For the administration because.
They they just haven't been able to get their story straight over the weekend we posted a story that basically went through the timeline what.
Who said what went and he had different administration officials of course saying different things whether this was caused by the -- anti Islamic.
Video all or whether it was terrorist attack in and they did just shifting positions on this -- and the more.
Republicans look into this the more they're just kind of shaking their President Bush Democrats privately to.
Are wondering you know what happened here -- so recently last week he held a hearing.
I didn't call up secretary of state Hillary Clinton -- another State Department official.
To investigate this so you know he's talking to people behind the scenes.
Whether he's investigating this are fast and furious he has moles that come to him.
So when you have -- I say investigating.
You you know that's not a good sign and act as he has a way that I attracting headlights.
RA and also were -- taking a look.
Of course -- what's going to be happening tomorrow all eyes on Long Island for the next presidential debate.
Hi experts concur -- that they expect a better performance from Obama this time.
I'd tell us about in the article online -- on that.
Yeah we -- stuck to both sides Republicans and Democrats and they're saying we'll listen Obama's gonna have a lot more energy that is for sure we saw that with.
With Joseph Biden.
And of course Republicans in like values as smiling -- interrupting.
But he brought energy to that debate and that's what the democratic base.
Love and -- still kind of baffled of why the president was so listless in his first debate against.
Mitt Romney so -- he had such a low bar because he did so poorly that he's clearly has to do better because policy can have done much worse unless he fell on -- so.
He's seems like he's going to be doing more debate preparations.
And that he's gonna have some he's gonna have some one liners I think get to go after.
Mitt Romney courses a town hall format so a different type format but there is no doubt about it he is -- be on the attack Mitt Romney.
You know he had a very strong performance can he go back to back in the Republican primary sometimes he had good debate performances and other times he had that debate.
Performance is just like.
The one where he had made that to -- at all offer that 101000 dollar bet to it to Rick Perry so I can Romney be consistent this is going to be a big debate.
You know if there's a clear winner here this could decide the election when it's that close.
-- assume that you know watching Saturday Night Live or -- seeing some of the clips afterwards so yeah who knows what we'll see this weekend and not.
I don't know if you saw vice president when I did see the vice president was very entertaining at that it is that it.
What do quite well done I got actually -- watch it online yesterday is pretty funny anyway and the last.
The last one here speaking of vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan stepping up for cash strapped mentored Tommy Thompson.
Yeah yeah Tommy Thompson running against -- Tammy Baldwin she if she wins she would become the first openly gay senator.
This is a very close race Thompson a former.
And he had a tough primary it's been a lot of money in the primary so so Paul Ryan now holding a fund raiser for him in both Ryan and -- RNC chairman -- -- Say that Thompson is a mentor and they -- really pushing for him so so basically the Republicans had united after a tough primary were Thompson was kind of called a moderate but he escaped that challenge but he's got a tough challenge and Tammy Baldwin who's running very effective campaign.
That this this kind of race could decide who controls.
The senate in -- thirteen.
