And I we have come -- you live from the post debate spin room we are at Florida's Lynn university and for more reaction to tonight's face off.
Between President Obama and governor Romney we head back to Fort Lauderdale what Frank Luntz and a group of undecided swing state voters are standing by frank I have one question for everybody there got in the focus group has a very -- -- on the economy.
Highest marks war.
Governor Romney and they thought on the debate points.
Here's -- Charles Krauthammer tonight made an observation that I happen to agree with and that was.
The president of the governor Romney.
Was not gonna get into the back and forth man and that sort of childish game was not attacking the president.
And the president seemed at times very desperate and and kind of small with these -- its attacks.
-- -- -- -- one what I've learned as commander in chief and -- think it used to be community organizer and your state senator for two years have voted present.
Does that bother focus group and all of those petty attacks.
Did that bother.
Four -- last and you interrupted me this time I'm speaking.
That's what I said before he was talking and she catch as you get chopping it add on and I'm not okay with that state your opinion and move on.
Patricia just like us.
Experience when he took office he was a community organizer our biggest problem in the country is our economy and Mitt Romney is proving he can handle.
Mitt Romney can handle the fiscal issues he has that history but we have a president hasn't given us a budget in three years and -- pets and who hasn't explained that got the -- Obama served as a state senator.
From Illinois therefore he had the experience in government to try to do things in government.
And he even said himself he can't change government you know I thought he was in government why the -- Yeah.
Look at the agency -- someone that is strictly from a community organizer background and government.
Where you have with Mitt Romney have private sector and government so that you put both of those together and create a better argument economic side yeah.
I wanna make this accurate and fair to the viewers at home how many he thought on points tonight's debate that -- rock Obama won Michigan's.
So it's overwhelming thoughts.
After looking at all for debates speed when it comes to the economy.
How many -- you think Mitt Romney would be better in handling the economy raise your hands.
It so that's what's interesting about this shot and what I -- -- to special clips to -- clips that are really powerful let's start.
We've Mitt Romney he talks about being strong at home.
Requires you to be strong abroad.
Let's take a look because as one of his high points of the debate.
But in order to be able to fulfill our rule the world America must be strong.
America must lead.
And for that to happen we have to strengthen our economy here at all you can't have 23 million people struggling to get a job.
If you can't have an economy that over the last three years keeps slowing down its growth rate you can't have kids coming out of college.
Half -- can't find a job today or a job that's commensurate with their college degree we have to get our economy going and -- military.
We've got to strengthen our military long term we don't know what the world it's gonna throw at us down the road.
We we make decisions today in -- military that there will confront challenges we can't imagine.
So what is it about strength about being strong that that you reacted to.
Well lately debt plan can be viewed internationally as a strong country are strong and and it.
As we go out into the world and and try to bring peace if we have all this turmoil on our own country we have to strengthen ourselves first and then we can help others.
Now -- inflation on the best moment for Barack Obama it was a shot.
It was one of those that kid to be -- twenty years from now.
Mitt Romney gave a great comparison to the current military vs a hundred years ago -- -- Barack Obama was prepared.
I think governor Romney maybe hasn't spent enough time looking at how our military works you you -- the navy for example.
And -- we have fewer ships than we did in 1960.
Well governor we also have fewer horses in -- and that's.
Because the nature of our military's change we have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on the we have.
These chips that go underwater nuclear submarines and so the question is not.
A game of battleship for coming -- it's it's what our capabilities.
So what was so powerful about that.
I think Mitt Romney's comparisons were unfair and technology has advanced we can do a lot more with a lot less.
And net as long as we're focused and we're going in the right direction and we're taking care of protecting this country that's what matters.
He's always make huge advances in 1970 my grandfather was riding a horse and buggy now -- you know a really nice Parsons it's it is no comparison -- -- do something really special to see the art around you what do you think of it.
That has decorated these -- for this entire year Steve Hanley.
What does you've heard what America means that what does it mean to you.
The greatest country in the history of civilization.
And you love these guys around you.
Yes who's your favorite Reagan -- you just said exactly watts.
Take a look at this -- -- you can get a wide shot of it because it really is magnificent.
You guys in Florida there's a reason why -- matter so much.
Because you look at these issues very specifically.
And you come I think in the end to the right decision and I just want to thank you for contributing all this morning art because this is America John back to.
