President Obama says that America's businesses owes that success for handouts from the government -- government operations government supports.
-- -- seems to be in stark contrast to cool -- fundamental American values.
As America shifted has America changed a bit -- Karl Rove -- former advisor to President Bush is doing DC golf thanks for joining us and a that's a fact question you know has America changed and tons left as the president suggests hasn't.
I don't believe so -- there's a wonderful book out by Arthur Brooks.
The head of American Enterprise Institute.
And -- in which makes it pretty persuasive case there were 7030 country that 70% of the people in the country agree with -- you'd consider to be traditional.
American values that they comprise the American dream of belief that if you work hard you can be anything you want to be that.
That this is a nation of opportunity not a nation you know nation merit not -- and not a nation of if you don't -- the lucky.
-- you succeed and and the unlucky don't.
I mean -- -- I think the president made a mistake here I mean there's this goes to show you know who he is and what he believes.
And it's not in sync with the American people think about all -- small business people across America waking up saying women the president thinks.
My success is the government's.
Reserve as a result of.
Government not my hard work -- not my sweat not my equity.
I'm -- the latest Rasmussen tracking poll came out just found an hour and ten minutes ago.
It shows governor Romney leading President Obama 47 to 44 law.
Do you detect a swing towards -- they are I mean what what what do you see in this race you study it more closer than most of us.
-- well look I think we're gonna be in a period.
Period of rough parity until we have the inflection point of the conventions in the selection the vice presidential running mate.
But until Labor Day or thereabouts the race is going to be relatively close look to people who were up for grabs in this election.
Swing voters are like swing voters in every election they make up their minds late.
No matter what the conditions are.
The race has a certain feel to it until they start to make up their minds.
Were a little bit of history here remember this -- we look back in 1980 and say.
Economy was really so bad Reagan blue.
Jimmy Carter out of the water but remember in July -- 1980 for the first time in the race Reagan took the lead 3734.
But by mid August.
He was back to 39 Carter 38 Reagan.
It was not a blowout until the final stages a campaign after the debates and when the swing voters finally said it's time for me to make.
Obama I gotta tell you that a lot of people of contacted a sign that not happy with the Romney campaign and you don't speak for the Romney campaign and it has just some of the things -- -- viewers are saying to us.
Why didn't what -- and thus does Mitt Romney have a Swiss bank account.
Why didn't Mitt Romney clean up his taxes so we can completely release all of them totally.
Why doesn't he have a better response to the attacks about Bain Capital.
You know why does he had not have a more clean -- easy to understand message I'm just sort of articulate some of the you know beyond.
The you know they unhappiness with the Romney campaign -- in your responses -- Well look out for those are legitimate questions I mean for exam hello what you know did he he has his finances are under the control of a trustee -- doesn't make these decisions.
But you gotta wonder why the trustees who didn't say to himself.
Mitt Romney may run for president again this this next coming election so are there things it could be political problems here in his.
Finances that I that I the trustee responsible for that either trustee make decisions about am not president does not not governor Romney so -- are legitimate but look.
Every campaign goes through a process of hand -- a couple weeks ago you heard the same thing from the Democrats about president Obama's campaign.
And he is Henry and remember everybody was said Romney's look at strong Obama's look -- -- equal Romney wasn't as strong a couple of weeks ago.
As as he looked in Obama wasn't as we -- similarly today.
Romney is not as weak as some other hand ringers and sunshine patriots believe in Obama's not a strong think about this.
The middle of may was when Barack Obama elect and I launched his attack on Bain Capital in and -- Gallup tracking poll.
It was 4545.
We've now been for more than two months subjected to all these attacks.
And the latest Gallup tracking poll is.
So you know a lot of this is sound and fury and a focus on the process.
The press would love to cover this kind of stuff -- to talk about bought by -- jobs numbers.
Bad consumer confidence numbers -- bad retail sales bad policies they'd -- talk about the process.
Hi Karl Rove gonna cut it short on a Friday got to go to Ben Bernanke is a matter of fact -- -- always a pleasure thank you so.
