-- -- second -- from anybody employees and we have a future plan now.
When you look at the president's plan I don't think you can being questioned that over on the right course for today's -- President Obama doesn't get.
What people need -- jobs and opportunity to help themselves.
Now you financing that before because with the -- spend eight months and tens of millions of dollars on negative ads attacking Mitt Romney all of a sudden now positive ads talking about president himself.
Back where their campaign insiders what's.
I think it feels pretty simple you only changed traffic as we say in the business when your -- are working.
The governor was successful in the first debate in making himself reasonable inclusive -- that we've been recommending bottom line the negative ads have stopped working.
President Obama to get from that 49%.
Approval up to fifty -- -- has -- positive in -- really pretty desperate attempt to change the direction.
Says so Romney is no longer the 300 bogey -- on the case -- unanimous hikers about white tie and tails to his chip notwithstanding the announcements there which is very funny.
I hear is he is new is bad take a look at yes.
His policies haven't worked median incomes down 43 -- a family.
And 23 million Americans out of work he said that he cut -- -- the deficit.
It just hasn't been able.
To put in place -- for Medicare and Social Security.
Are packing up all of irony because bush and -- -- is negative error a Romney's narrative well.
He's doing what you want you now because you've been using the debates -- is positive which is saying you really wanna keep the same for the next four years.
And that you -- nose for undecided voters and those squishy voters is that's what they're weighing him vs but I think it's -- they need to do.
-- tomorrow night is the final debate the third and final debate but the subject matters foreign policy if you look at any -- They'll tell you that you know about.
Five or six or 10% Max of likely voters care about foreign policy in terms of their vote.
That was -- is anybody -- tune in pay attention and care aria they're gonna watch why.
Because they've watched the other two debates this is the greatest show on -- -- this campaign people are watching the debates even what Monday Night Football they want they'll watch the debate.
And if what we've been saying for the last twenty minutes is true that the race is basically time.
Either guy can win or lose so there in every event every event -- from now want is crucial and the state tomorrow night.
Or a home run -- my -- guy mistake -- we have.
And Libya and you know what.
That was an issue that was sort of may be me ground rule double last time or.
A courtesy of Candy Crowley it exactly put put another way it's effectively a -- over it's a moment of both high suspense high drama.
And real interest because in real time we have the question of what the president is going to do.
What governor Romney's record -- is and we didn't get that question and answer.
You know we didn't get an answer them anymore and I'm Tony avenue -- persists for a secure America now bipartisan poll in mean these are issues like China that matter.
Muslim extremism month matters but here's the point for Romney he needs to go -- -- do what Reagan did we -- in 1980 the Carter -- debate Reagan yogurt.
That he was gonna blow the country up by having that debate when he got people think he won because said.
Are you better off you were four years four years ago no one would enjoy -- he won when he said.
I have grandchildren children and I don't want -- are we -- peace.
-- Caribbean and -- can't the last debate the president turned to Romney squarely for the first time really looking -- and say how dear.
I'm paraphrasing have -- you suggest.
And I'm trying to politicize this this is not with my presidency is about.
The you could hear a pin drop out it was an incredible moment for the president you know he's gonna do it again -- what worries me about that.
The other night and everything every time Romney wades -- to the topic of foreign affairs.
He steps all over himself a trip to England for the Olympics.
The press conference the day of the Cairo -- Riots this thing the other night was teed up for him to hit it right out of the ballpark he fumbled it to mix -- thing he's spent.
The time since then yeah perfecting his response now has -- and this is a.
Time when the country's I think that pointed -- is uniquely focus.
-- an event that took four heroic Americans on 9/11 the question is where do we go why did -- happen what do we do.
He is and I think that it -- That -- me flinch I think standing over the present I don't think you flinch when he may only has an off by Crowley he was certainly watch lives -- but he was a little bit but I can't seem pulling back.
But I wanted to say I think that this this would be thing is really huge.
And they've got an answer to look we have -- I was -- -- elements into the flag hanging over you know -- al-Qaeda flag over embassy in Cairo what I assume.
Gregory also have the issue of the moderator again tomorrow night Bob Schieffer the most experienced a -- these guys not gonna.
-- bone headed move at all but he may very well want to be an a big player in this I don't think so I mean I think he'll stay out I think he will -- market if -- -- reason and he is going to be the next Candy Crowley they aren't done an eight.
You can get more from the campaign insiders every Monday at 10:30 AM eastern.
Live dot foxnews.com.
And they will be back here next Sunday you can also follow them on Twitter at -- and insiders now.
I wanna come back to you guys because wanna talk a little bit about George McGovern who passed -- in 1972 democratic nominee pat you were formed.
I was I was -- when your -- it was a Spoelstra was my first campaign it was a wonderful spirit.
George McGovern I've known honorable people politics he was the most one of the most if not the most honorable but Jimmy Carter -- known.
He was -- an American hero war hero.
He stood up for principle he led the food for peace.
He changed a Democratic Party not only bring me the politics and hundreds of that and or thousands like me.
But -- President Bill Clinton Hillary Clinton Gary Hart all kinds of people.
He is it was a giant and you know what I was different not proud we lost but we lost to a terrible evil can take military and I've never been more proud.
You -- enjoy it you know his timing we -- in 1972 well it's time and they may have been off but he was a man.
Who wouldn't play politics.
With his war record -- was right yeah it was a war hero motion wouldn't you 35 missions over here and I think that he gets it but the lesson we draw from this.
Is that there is honor in politics.
There is leadership and there is morality was Johnny was widely respected.
-- I think there's not done I think if you look back now forty years later the stance he took which was not popular violent people -- forgotten that to be against the war then was a not an easy position to take the majority people.
Had been fooled over Vietnam they've now come to say what a disaster that war was he was -- ahead of the game.
Great George McGovern -- really one of America's great politicians who want him we'll be right.
