And of course you know it's paying Hopkins is getting lots of balascak a look at those numbers are pretty shocking as well and it shows just that how far behind the Republicans might -- Yeah ended to comment on this it was earlier this year that his advisor who -- saying that they can potentially had the billion dollar mark.
It at 191.
There's a long ways to go to get a -- yeah this is it a little this point for them despite their best efforts are not getting the numbers they expected Obama at a 196 million.
Romney at 88 of course this doesn't count the pacs and now acts are critically important here and doesn't have a -- and it also doesn't cattle with the unions are going to be spending this year and that's the key component.
-- the -- -- what's super pac spent I mean those numbers can be a lot larger than what we see spent in the total campaign.
Well you know what's interesting about this is sometime ago back in 07 Obama was saying that we need open god or man -- -- election camp so this should be out out -- Here's woody -- said back in 2007.
My first day as president -- -- launched the most sweeping ethics reform in American history.
We will make government more open more accountable and more responsive to the problems of the American people.
You know I don't -- that -- and well I think isn't just another example of him saying one thing and doing another heat you know has -- the Wall Street.
He is taken money from Wall Street he has talked about the super pacs and how damaging they are then he's in his administration officials to support those super -- speaking at third.
Some of the things he's done lately I have been too thrilled about like not approving the Keystone Pipeline that saw a lot of jobs there that just went away when the president nixed that idea.
So he's trying to -- -- to them today here's what he said.
In the congress would rather put pure -- to work rebuilding America.
And ask millionaires and billionaires to live without massive new tax cuts on top of -- one they've already got.
So here we go class warfare what do you make of it.
Well the president will be heating up his campaign his began in the unions are critical they always saying -- -- -- start out talking to your base.
You talk to the middle -- come back to your base.
He's setting out his -- he's starring Anthony -- that the unions or their friend that they're gonna turn out and not only did they not -- keystone which is something that the unions wine.
The other print -- Colombia free trade agreement other free trade agreements with the unions have been fighting against for years.
Today we talked a lot about his new campaign called forward he's gonna video -- took a look at that.
You know there's a lot of debate about the numbers he's using whether they're accurate or not -- whether they really tell the whole story of that what's gone on in this economy.
We've how do you analyze is this really appealing do you think people are gonna stand up and -- -- yeah.
I love that campaign slogan yeah I.
I don't now because it and allow people say well no we're not going forward we're going back towards -- we've just been in neutral and some people feel like they -- in park for the past few years.
So right here in part if you don't -- year checked.
You know your check increasing your savings increasing the need don't feel like you're moving forward sound to be true here at -- -- what page are on fire right now because -- -- stock market.
Is defying all expect now -- even though the economy is going nowhere with a 2.2 percent growth rate.
You know unemployment still above 8% week it -- to get any traction there.
Yet the stock market on fire you know if -- the president I might try to play that up a little -- let say that's due to my policy again IA that's -- deadly pending he should be talking on talking more about less about job don't.
Don't put -- this on -- Republicans seem to take that same token at the advice when it comes to communicating.
Don't let this right on jobs along the flooded were let right on the total economy.
Because you never know what jobs are gonna -- at they're gonna go up or they're gonna go down so you don't want that to be the one -- that I judging people by mostly punk.
