Joining us now with more on the economy's impact on presidential politics is Ed Rollins leading Republican strategist Fox News political analyst.
Seven this is this news today.
In it's it's not the darkest of the worse but it's certainly not helpful to the president's reelection.
No it isn't any you did what it million bags -- -- be Obama -- -- And in spite of the strip last night spite of the things that.
Attempting to -- to them -- himself as a strong commander in chief.
Voters are gonna -- in in the gonna say which which one of these two guys companies can turn this thing around presence at three and a half years he spent trillions of dollars it hasn't worked.
How does Romney offer something that will give us have a chance.
That -- the thinking -- -- -- conventional and to that end numbers valuable as a might otherwise be but the kind of thinking had been.
That with the unemployment rate dropping down to eight point 2% the Congressional Budget Office projecting that will be somewhere in the -- sevens.
By the end of this year you do you you don't think that's enough for this president.
I don't think it's enough is presently in any -- important can't talk about it -- and I think every time he's gone out.
Made an attempt to talk about it there and there experts are out -- saying.
It's not so.
And equally as important is still the -- of Americans that are unemployed and millions of Americans are worried about getting unemployed and I think that's the issue that's that's prevalent.
That the economy is an issue in our most recent polls we just reported.
Governor Romney has a seven point lead.
Over the president on the issue who can best fix this economy.
How powerful how important is budgetary power.
Well I think it's what sort of -- even in the polls so far to -- he still has not articulated how he's gonna fix things -- in a plan back and then the primaries and nobody paid much attention to.
But he's gonna go out and -- -- -- -- -- business people small business large business.
And talk about how is gonna get the economy moving.
I know for a fact that the governor he is has put together groups of businesspeople ought to study various issues that are critically important to the economy.
As you say we haven't seen the product.
Of those those councils are.
Folks that he's convened.
Some of the best of folks in the country.
But we have to have it seems to me a debate this country about what the business practices are the public policies are.
That have led us to this point we've really gonna talk about the causal relationship.
That is -- 23 as an into the governor's credit he talks about those 43 million people underemployed unemployed.
But we haven't talked about how in the world we got here and what we can do with specificity to get out of it.
If you don't know what the problem is and what caused the problems such as global obviously global had a lot of impact on it.
But what we ourselves have done and we need attacks -- when he -- to lead to a lot of elimination of some of the things -- and create a stimulus that way.
Those guys think he talked about now obviously these meetings to a lot of Smart people -- -- listen don't.
He need to start putting a plan together come -- advises people have a confidence in the business community.
The start talking about.
That the president as governor Romney is doing well on that issue in the polls.
The president last night in Afghanistan.
Signing the strategic partnership with -- Karzai.
An address to the nation -- looking at the ratings today there wasn't much of a move.
There wasn't much attention paid.
A mistake on the part of the president are I a weren't necessary governance.
You were I think the mistake was -- never it's never -- A mistake to thank guard troops -- what they've done.
But I think having sort of made this all political by attacking Romney saying Romney wouldn't do this in an -- By basically going on the day of the execution anniversary of the execution justifiable Mexican Asian.
-- kind of steps old was old story looks it looks makes it look like was for nothing but politics.
At the end of the day when you thanking our troops you basically making the right decisions.
You can think politically should never looked political he looks political.
Newt Gingrich giving up the giving up his candidacy today.
Our gracious -- that was supportive of our Romney I was not a grace's exit it was a it was a little whiny sore -- -- all things.
Hi I I've written books I've done this I really was the most qualified.
I was these negative advertising -- it took so that took me out did -- 68 weeks too late.
I year old up four million dollars in debt that he's basically walking away from.
And I think to certain extent he probably destroyed any credibility and at the -- his campaign.
First person usage -- sounds that resonates well you know the president uses the word -- -- and then in you know the truth of matter who had to.
Those Navy SEALs are not very happy that everything else that happened -- I and I and I think the Gingrich.
Obama debate which was saved from having what about act.
The folks who deserve credit are members of a team.
Several -- the navy seal teams and they use the word -- -- actually.
-- always good -- pleasure thank you.
