-- -- -- your analysis of last night's debate joining us from Oklahoma City Dick morris' latest book here comes a black helicopters is a best seller.
So Morris -- the debate that Charles and I had.
Was about demeanor.
Okay that that Mitt Romney and and Chris Wallace is reporting that he made the decision himself.
To be a soft.
Softer approach not to challenge to president not to be overly aggressive was that the Smart way to handle it.
It was frustrating for me is it -- for you.
Sat there watching the TV and with my body language and wanted him to throw more punches.
But I think the key thing which Romney did not want to making news in this debate he did not want -- -- changed the subject into the last two weeks of the election.
He's got the election now squarely focused on the economy.
All the polls show that by two to one he's more trusted on the economy.
And that's for the -- he wanted to make the sparks he wanted to fly we're about the economy.
Not about foreign policy but he would have been had to get it on the final -- What would have been the deficit to make some news about Libya in the sense that you confront the president who's obviously.
Screwed this up.
And you make it a competency issue the reason that Romney's ahead on the economy.
Is that he's been able to tell the American people that Barack Obama has screwed it up.
So now what you're doing -- you going and not only is he screwed up the economy and miscues mean he screwed this up so it's a competency issue what would have been wrong with that.
Because you never know what's gonna play out you never know how it's gonna work you never -- when you have the -- -- on your side you have overwhelmingly affects a lot.
So let the facts on -- side in the second debate and it didn't work out on Libya I think that he was very right for making this focus on the economy.
But the broader picture -- what he did in this debate.
What's he made sure that women did not think he was a war monger all right so we're really happy you're -- await me.
It worries that he was -- Ry 43 right that he was a cowboy.
And he proved to me wasn't that's one and number two he let Obama be as obnoxious as who's going to be.
Too close to me right now his favorability is higher than Obama -- -- just got my track how the car to feel full debate on Romney's part.
All right I believe that that you know I'm glad you said that -- -- reinforced my belief that a lot of what the governor did last night was directed toward.
Single women and trying to convince them to vote for him.
Often however this snap polls on CNN and CBS say.
That the majority of Americans believe Barack Obama won that debate -- not.
That's that's -- relevant.
Most thought that Romney won that Obama won the second debate.
And -- -- Romney has moved up about four points in the national polls since the second debate with bill obviously Romney won the debate.
It's not a question of who wins the debate it's a question of who wins the election and what image they're posting.
Romney had some very specific objective here to separate himself from bush 43.
To make Obama seem outrageous that nasty and Biden -- in a sense.
And not to make news and to get focused on the economy.
He did a mall.
All capitalists and US in the -- in -- run up to this too I think Romney still get a win.
I stand exactly but what I've been saying thank you for eight months on the show Romney is going to win by 48 points.
He's gonna get more than 300 electoral votes.
And Ohio it's not gonna decide the election rallies can carry Ohio.
But he's also -- carry Pennsylvania.
He's probably get a -- Michigan.
He's got he's probably gonna carry Wisconsin.
I don't what happens marveling.
What happens though he electoral votes what happens if you wrong.
Do we get you to put -- I'll -- out one of those one of those tanks where people throw balls and don't you in a war what.
I happened works if you -- I'm gonna have to sit across the table from you at dinner.
And have you -- on what an idiot -- what I'm gonna make you buy dinner for the whole Borough of Manhattan not to me.
What you really like what you yourself would really put yourself out on the limb when everybody else is saying it's going to be close including -- posters and I think -- I've had a bet.
Remember all the fights you and I've -- that Pennsylvania.
Is the -- Ohio.
Same number of electoral votes with four points ahead in Pennsylvania.
The point bill is that Ohio and all of us that states -- irradiated.
With Obama negative ads against -- he got a holiday -- territory.
Like Pennsylvania Wisconsin and Minnesota Michigan might not been I got to the states are easier to win I got -- -- commercially you can continued talking about Pennsylvania while we go to the break.
But you do have.
He had a opponents -- -- I'm telling you Billy out of there man.
Analysts say --
