And whose work for the last four years of the other best we can do or.
If there's anyone who fears the American dream is fading away -- it.
There's anyone who wonders whether better jobs and better paychecks are a thing of the past.
I have a clear and unequivocal message.
With the right leadership America is about to come roaring.
This should not be that complicated.
We tried our ideas there or.
The economy -- it would create jobs and -- -- We -- there are business.
-- -- -- -- We've -- to me it didn't grow.
Not a great job does it well.
The closing arguments in the final hours -- back with our panel what about the closing arguments and -- these two candidates are really running -- Well for Obama's very simple -- -- sunny and in fact despite some of these statistics.
That his policies have worked they just need more time to work.
Enron is a bad guy Romney is.
That lying about what he's represented himself -- that he's not the moderate he's portrayed himself fat.
He's going to be a rubber stamp of of -- Very conservative congressional Republicans and he'll take us back that's a simple argument.
Pretty well in this look into two.
The arguments I'd rather be making one of the type one that Romney is making and one the president Obama's make.
The president however is burdened by a record it on some very big issues principally into the economy he has basically not done what he said he would do.
That is a huge problem for him so necessarily there's a larger component of -- -- on the other guy in his closing argument.
And there hasn't been Romney's Romney's talking about hoping chain that's what I was talking about four years ago that's a more uplifting final argument to make and it looks just watching Romney.
He looks happier and more comfortable himself making it the president seems a little weary.
The little horse and glad to have this over with and I think you know that's what's Romney's doing and saying they -- more attractive -- -- and it went well here's some.
Well look I think the line America's gonna come roaring back has a very strong line and the -- it you know very aspiration on I think it's a kind of thing -- people on here you know war or not where we want to be and he he's gonna give us something better.
As I do think -- -- a great job and those coupons closing arguments I think the president is being measured against.
Himself for years ago which is a hard thing to be measured against you know and so.
He does have a record the -- -- to talk about but I think at the same time he's doing good job of getting people.
Fired up getting the base fired up which is what he needs to do and people like him still you know even even -- people aren't happy with the direction of the country based elect the president.
Although electability numbers seem to -- and recent days in fact Mitt Romney on some polls was out.
Performing President Obama and like ability which was shocking if you look back a few weeks there was no way that that was going to happen Steve.
It was and I think that's him in part a function of the fact the president has been making the argument he's been making.
If you back to people which was is in effect the beginning of the general election there's a certain symmetry to the arguments that we're seeing today where you've got Mitt Romney making -- a big.
-- you know optimistic argument hopeful argument and you've got the president basically saying as Chris and back at -- it's not gonna work in if you look at it from that perspective of the president's basic question is we've tried really hard and we'll do better next time.
And Mitt Romney's argument is.
I don't care how hard you tried you haven't produced results and that's really I think the debate but I think the revenge thing was a very unfortunate comment for Karbala and again you know that you you have.
Rhonda I Obama saying.
Vote for revenge did you know that these are the guys that lives Scrooge in the past it and do it again.
And the breadth and you have -- Romney saying vote for love of country boy that's a bad can be and that's that's a bad contrast from Obama's.
Our President Obama.
What what I wished for at some point in this past week you've got governor Romney -- they're talking -- he's the one that's going to be doing a great job of reaching out to the other party.
Then you have this TV pictures.
Of the president who Governor Christie in New Jersey post hurricane walking around without governor that Republican governor that Romney backing Republican governor praising him.
I was pretty good stuff for him.
