The idea that we're you know we're gonna get excited about a 170000.
A labor force and access arguably 150 million.
Jobs that should be you know they should be the full labor force we've got labor force partition participation rates over the past year that are abysmal.
We we have to understand that something's going on in this economy that are best politicians are best political leaders state federal.

We have talked about over the course of the past decade outsourcing of jobs we have talked about -- offshoring of production.
We have talked about the efficiencies that in productivity that is generated by technology.
But there is no broad understanding of the implications of each of those those very important issues on job creation.
Is so I -- -- I think one of the very problems is it's it's issue number one job creation.
Because it's fundamental to the American dream it's fundamental to the middle class in this country it's fundamental to everything the stations about and -- this president.
Norfolk and frankly governor Romney are talking with the depth.

And then blithely.
The idea that the Republicans get up and talk about cutting and taxation and regulation again.

We should this president his has had an abysmal record on the economy.
Mitt Romney is untested and untried at the national -- Whatever he says should be met skeptically and tested in that in the public arena of ideas.
There should be no faith on anyone's -- about answers that are given.
They should all be tested they should all be debated.
Stay skeptical I don't need to know.
