Test called us ahead of tomorrow's big jobs report the kind of number that will likely help decide.
Who is our next president United States Dan -- -- on the Wall Street Journal is here to make sense of this.
The campaigns and also how -- -- dove dovetails with health care.
Yeah a lot that's -- big assignment yet but again this -- what we've got four report for jobs reports before the presidential election how critical are these numbers verses.
The fight is going on over health care whether it's attacks -- I think the jobs numbers and the -- maintain I continue to think that the economy's going to be the number one is Sharon health care because of the way.
Justice Roberts decided it has become an issue but the economy is the number one issue so -- get something like.
These job positive jobs numbers today.
Nonetheless we're call but just last week we were all talking about a devastating.
Report on factory orders in June Beazer June numbers those were two numbers so what you've got is a very choppy economy which I think is basically going to -- flat.
Breakthrough -- the election.
You are going to get a second quarter GDP report at some point to if that's below 2% or not much above 2% that won't be good for the president.
Now Mitt Romney.
Mitt Romney is running saying that the president is in over his head he doesn't know how to manage the economy -- economy's bad.
I've been there I've done that that is not sufficient to get him elected president.
To -- police attach Barack Obama to a bad economy without explaining in some depth.
Why we are living in such a flat lined economy and what he knows as a businessman about business formation and capital formation that would make it different.
So he's not doing enough there on the economy and -- data mentioned health care what did you make of the comments.
To CBS where you -- he basically says something different -- this campaign advisor that the mandate that health care mandate indeed was -- tax.
Just -- politically is that Smart thing to do for him to get on the same page as the rest of the conservatives out there would seem as opposed to being accused of being a soap operas he has been in the past.
-- -- should have been on.
Page one the same date they were on -- I wonder what effect which she wasn't right and he couldn't which suggest disarray at least or confusion inside the Romney campaign.
We had this things incidents last week were one of his advisors was asked about what Robertson Don calling it -- -- said.
Romney agrees that the president that it's not a tax well.
He's just been handed huge gift by in the court saying that mr.
Obama was imposing this -- -- sorry -- -- -- again because again it would then to allow the president to turn back in Massachusetts and say well you said that wasn't a tax then the mandate but.
Governor Romney has never figured out how to talk about the health care plan in Massachusetts.
And if you're going to perform in the big leagues in the Super Bowl bowl of American politics.
You as a politician have got to come up with an explanation.
Squaring Massachusetts with a federal plan that most people really don't like because the mandate was at the center of it and so that you sense like you think if we try to bring this all together and you think.
-- around it has a lot of work to do here he does have a lot of work to do and I think he has time I'm not among other people who were getting.
Desperate in June we've got a long way to go through the summer and then the big months of September and October and he's got the convention to try to pull the governor -- Well saying about how he worries to talk about the economy and what he can do vs what the president does.
Whether they're at then -- in the in the biggest game.
Or if they're like low level and the bush legs they always worry about appearing too Smart.
Yeah and appearing to be well and -- latest and do you think that -- Part of what's -- in this way is that he doesn't want -- tight he tries to dumbed down to the point that it's just.
-- -- -- -- Yeah well.
I'm going to see is working I'm willing to CM paint by numbers and explaining to people how -- real economy like the US economy.
Functions which is to allow all the players out -- this huge economy more freedom to.
Invest capital and make capital and why.
Obama's policies are leaning on top of them he should not suggest that.
He Mitt Romney has some magic formula that he personally will use to raise the economy that's not the way it's going to work.
And so good to see was always excellent -- all together and agreed that we think it was the very tasty soup that -- -- -- -- -- having our stand made it we just sit here listening to him -- and luster term.
