Seventeen minutes before the our economy time and stocks in our 401 -- are soaring on several promising new reports.
A lot look at the down up a 115 points on average -- above thirteen five now.
Investors apparently reacting to a Commerce Department report that shows retail sales were up.
Just more than a percentage point last month one point one and that could mean consumers are more -- in the economy.
There's a separate report from the Fed that shows industrial production revved up point 4% last month double what the economists said they expected.
Also the association of homebuilders measured the housing market sentiment ticked up to its highest level since 2006.
Now that could mean the market for new homes is showing new signs of life and we've been seeing signs of the last few months.
But what we've heard governor Romney blaming the president for the sluggish economic recovery -- the recent positive reports affect the governor's message.
Fair and balanced joining us now the Romney campaign senior advisor Bay Buchanan is also served as US chart if you excuse me US -- during the Reagan administration coming also.
The economic numbers are better and every American I'll be happy about that but I'm not sure what it does for your campaign.
Are you -- I I think investors are probably looked at that Gallup poll today and kept -- Mike -- Mitt Romney could win this thing this and I didn't say that what I what I rarely seen a 21 point swing.
One out how to look hold the next and that was with female voters I know that's -- -- talk about but I wanted to ask -- economy first.
Because the signs are good and I've -- you and your family are happy about yeah I didn't know what's around the course -- and that makes the message harder doesn't it.
It well I don't know that it does because you still have all this people who are unemployed you still have people on the food stamps.
What is the message them how to create jobs and it's always a good thing to see the investments going up but you want people to get back to work to this is critical.
And I think that's where the Obama.
Campaign doesn't have a message no defense of what's happened -- last four years no plans for the future and Mitt Romney has sent me.
You've you've mentioned that the fifth women voters survey which shows that.
Women have -- round in an enormous -- tied up on a national level at least with the president to what do you attribute that.
I think what happened is he had a real rough primary and contentious women don't like that anything had a rough.
Summer where so many things -- being said that was ugly about the governor as they never really saw who it was but they've been very worried there's no question I was a single mom 23 years.
You know what the number one thing on their minds is jobs and security having -- -- together families deserve a bright future for their kids.
And and they weren't getting as we needed to see if there's an alternative because -- because obviously Barack Obama was not giving -- And -- they -- and they take a look tune into the debate using my golly.
This is this is a guy that that we can trust to do the right thing here he has the knowledge expertise.
He did a terrific job of conveying his message directly to the people.
And I think women -- -- that much.
Did we can turn things around this is a -- he do it he can create those twelve million jobs.
And and can give us the kind of hopefully in the future that we really need to kind of changed it's necessary something Barack Obama is not talking about and so he captured them and I think he's gonna keep on.
You watch O'Reilly.
Occasionally I do.
You know he has these body language experts on their sometimes I always look at those segments ago are you kidding me I didn't -- nothing but body language does matter and I noble -- it's among the highest rated segments on -- Reilly's program.
Tonight those two guys are going to be up there with nothing in front of them -- town hall debate is very much about.
A body language that conventional wisdom is the president's good at this sort of thing and the pictures show us that maybe that's not mr.
Mitt Romney's strongest suit -- that a -- Well -- I think in the last debate that he did I think he should the body language was clear there -- is very strong positive message somebody -- do person.
In charge confident I think you can see all of those things again and I think -- also this is that Romney great opportunity because he's going to be.
Can't change -- responding to people just you know average Americans they are asking a question.
Expressing their concerns about this country and he's going to be talking directly to -- he does an excellent job -- this.
He's done town cause he's comfortable when Andy he's comfortable talking to people one -- one very much so he has great empathy compassion it's -- -- you can see that -- As well although the listening aside.
And one that answers those questions and I think again we'll but he's kind of -- tonight -- all -- -- -- can't -- -- so well -- -- -- great to see you good to see -- thanks.
