Romney's well they've been.
You know he's been sergeant went well that's I did say there were turner said that they have turned -- -- that first debate is probably one of the most dramatic moments in.
And a modern recent modern presidential election if he wins we're gonna look back and say that's the moment he got the victory movement.
-- so what's the strategy moving forward -- two weeks away.
Well he's got to pound he's got a pound home these three messages.
I've got a plan.
President Obama's policies have failed you don't want more of the same he's a status quo guy on the -- represents change I've got a plan to get us to where you wanted it.
And I'm the guy who is the did the Republican governor and heavily Democrat state capital -- -- a bipartisan fashion.
To bring abortion together change portion -- this kind of had a shot.
And didn't do it is it a mistake for Romney to not anymore nationally and things you know I don't know whether he's going to or not I EM I can argue that one ran -- in arguing that -- flat first of all.
Takes a lot of time out of the Dayton and and and your choices OK I can go on a national program where people would Utah and Massachusetts we'll see meet people -- war should state and Alabama.
Or -- can do bunch of local things where I'm in Florida and they see me in Delray Beach and you know Orlando in Jacksonville there it is it's it's it's -- unity and make a decision that we're twelve days away right now.
Are you amazed at how.
The campaign has devolve -- I heard you quote David -- who called.
Romney a liar and then we saw just a liar but he column a liar liar liar damaged several -- pants on fire.
And then others a news flash.
Saw something from Rolling Stone apparently in the -- United States refers to mr.
Romney is BS or -- What when was the last time in presidential politics it devolve to the -- All but 18100 winner.
Thomas Jefferson got a notorious.
Slander to write editorials attacking John Adams in the Richmond is to -- out Herm Aphrodite exactly you've got to get you read the -- but good for you.
They did it look this is ugly and it's on the coming and is frankly.
I'm amazed the president -- smarter than this I mean these guys are tactically Smart.
Really Smart to get sharp knives are quick to react.
But they're strategically not all that bright I mean this is not -- a good strategy.
To take the incumbent present United States and have a go around saying these things about his -- -- surprise matches and are you surprised because for years ago.
Arguably this team was one of the best to gather together camp and they had a great strategy which was let's change let's let's turn -- -- that.
That the page on the last twenty years on let's turn it on Clinton.
Gingrich let's turn it on bush I want to be the president of red state not red states or Blue States but the United States have to bring us together.
We're gonna we're gonna do this as a country together it was very optimistic it was very inspirational and aspirations and an and the star -- My opponent is a liar you know my opponent is a is an admitted -- credit his wife is a practicing equestrian and it -- like play his worst assault -- -- -- -- the president of the United States of America in your reduced to say in your opponent as a B essar.
And think about this we just came -- a debate in which the president.
Said I wasn't in favor of -- troops into Iraq when he was the guy negotiating sit in negotiating the status of forces agreement.
And then not once not twice but three times at the end of the debate says.
You're -- and you never called for federal aid to to the car companies -- at the close of album of Mitt Romney's op Ed on the auto bailout he said at the end of this bye and head play bankruptcy process.
We ought to give guaranty federal guarantees and support to the auto cup and -- work.
A third one was when you said that congress came up with -- and it -- media went but it Mr.
President -- you're in favor of it yes I -- the hill and suddenly you know I mean but but.
This is this is where you drive yourself when you start stocks in my opponent is a liar and an end particularly -- -- the insular world of Obama -- -- Obama land.
You you start convince yourself well he really is a liar and everything he says is alive and so.
You know you start getting the candidate in a place where is not able to make these kind of attended -- distinguish these kinds of of truce and and and mystery some.
Well -- the thing it's Carl for the last four years and beyond this guy has had done a great.
Publicity from the mainstream media chair and even all I I read David Letterman apparently could not believe that the -- United States what essentially told him.
Regarding Mitt Romney and that article in the Wall Street Journal are talking about managed bankruptcy.
And yet people are out there and they're just not give the other side because the so called fact checkers.
Seem to have -- in many cases.
Political agenda is trying to do a lot of speeches and doing a lot of debates with with Democrats and the question of bankruptcy will come up I've taken care -- around the front page of the bankruptcy filing you know -- GM and -- went through bankruptcy yeah.
And it was directed by the president United States -- his people and it's -- you know it's within what do you know -- so what -- -- want -- -- go through bankruptcy Mitt Romney wanna go through bankruptcy well -- when you put them through bankruptcy.
Mean that's how businesses shed -- they're liabilities and so forth and and Mitt Romney and and and Barack Obama -- wanted to go through bankruptcy the differences.
President Obama wanted to settle on the term so it could reward is political pals in the United Auto Workers as they have so the -- -- that take money for the people who for 200 years.
Have had to have to have -- -- Legal right to be first in line and take their take the money from them and given to the people the unsecured creditor the United Auto Workers -- your political -- I'm surprised there hasn't been more blowback from the people who lost out all those pensions as a result -- as we've heard -- we've got a lot about how they're already had -- -- has helped Obama with voters in Ohio and Michigan but what about -- distant when you know we might.
Or 60000 people lost their jobs at GM a lot of -- white collar workers and you believe me when I was in Michigan yesterday guy came up to me and said -- you know.
-- thanks for bringing up the issue the bankruptcy and you're right he said it you know I'm in the auto -- -- in the the Carter.
