Well treated until the big debate the question is.
What does governor Romney have to break away and joining us senior Romney campaign advisor and former -- for governor Johnson who welcome governor great to have you here.
It's good to be at cal Karl Romney will win by two to three points relax like because you just heard from -- -- -- -- why Romney is impacted tight racing your Wednesday.
Well look there because the Democrats of pumping money in here the president has been up here.
A few times Biden's been here it's -- it's always a tight race in New Hampshire in a presidential campaign.
Obama won it last time Romney will win at this time by two to three points.
Our lesson on how to issue Libya and the final debate.
Newly released documents showing that ambassador Stevens sent repeated cables to Washington about security fears even sent one.
On September 11 the day that he and three other Americans were killed.
Again this begs the question.
Why the White House waited so long as had been Ghazi was a pre planned terror strike what impact do you think these new documents are gonna have on the final debate.
I think they're going to have an impact on the final result maybe not and certainly will be part of the final debate.
Look -- -- now that the president wants to play semantics on this.
Whether he put a word here -- -- there fundamentally the mistake this administration made.
Was trying to pretend to itself and tell the world.
That that terrorism was quelled in North Africa and across the danger spots of the world it's not it is rampant.
If it has reared its ugly head again and the administration's trying to hide that fact.
And so would -- ambassador Stephens.
We're sending in those cables saying it's real it's fear they were shoving him under the table of shame on the president shame on the State Department.
So can we expect Mitt Romney to be very aggressive about the -- does he attack when he debates the president and asked him about.
That video -- reportedly shows what happened in real time.
I don't know what he's going to specifically ask him but I but I will say it was kind -- shock.
When the president lied about having referred to to -- attack is a real terrorist attack.
That in the Rose Garden speech I think that's what threw -- through governor Romney off he couldn't believe the president was so blatantly dishonest.
This issue will come up but the bigger issue.
Is how the president's general foreign policy.
And specifically in Libya and North Africa foreign policy.
Actions have really been disastrous you couple that with the failure on the economic side and the two visited two principal responsibility a president as.
Foreign policy nationals and national security on one hand and on the other hand jobs and economic -- it.
Ability in the US on the other this president's an abject failure those -- the big issues the president wants to talk about binders and big bird.
I did look you you've got a man of stature -- Mitt Romney.
Running against -- very small incumbent and I think the voters are gonna decide November on that.
-- senior advisor for the campaign you're saying that the White House has lied about what's happening in Libya does that.
Speak for mr.
Romney is well then.
Well I don't know I'm an observer I've been in a White House -- White House.
Operates I've seen the tables I've seen the reporting and this White House when the president went.
To the UN and said video six times when by that time it was clear to everybody.
That that it had nothing to do with the video.
He hit it is either blatant dishonesty are absolute incompetence -- leave it up to him to pick one or both of those.
Focusing on the campaign now with a seventeen days ago we've also learned that most of those negative ads against mr.
Romney have been pulled in the key swing states by the Obama campaign.
Why do you think this is happen right now.
Because they -- that to be a dumb move.
Based and 250.
Attacking Mitt Romney.
And the minute the US.
The real Mitt Romney in that first debate it wiped out all those expenditures and they're fighting out that the public doesn't believe.
What this White House is saying about Mitt Romney anymore.
The president's going to have to at some point.
Defend his own policies.
And and they've tried to run ads now.
That sound as if there is no unemployment in America there's -- three million Americans suffering.
They've tried to run ads as if the president has has -- the world Batman we have terrorism rampant.
So he's he's grasping at straws right now.
The Mitt Romney campaigns focusing on the economy and foreign policy.
That's what a president's responsibility is all about that's what -- Mitt Romney can deal with it's what the president is running away from.
-- we're into the homestretch expecting they fireworks that come Monday.
I'm so I said again are you expecting -- fireworks to come out -- on Monday then.
Well I think it's going to be a very interesting debate.
I think the president found out that he better go home and do some homework.
I'm sure is gonna come back armed.
Two to be aggressive.
But what what the differences of course is -- and I think it showed in both the debates.
Mitt Romney's got complete command of the facts the reality.
And and he can demonstrate I think quite clearly in a forum like a debate that he can handle the presidency.
And deal with the economic problems and the international problems.
Well governor always a pleasure to have you on our show thank you so much for joining us for your insights we really appreciate it.
Have a great weekend take care you too.
