Assess how these campaigns at their candidates are doing.
And what -- better be doing to prevail we're joined by -- Glickman former deputy assistant to president George W.
Democratic strategist Hank shine -- -- -- for former President Bill Clinton New York City mayor.
Michael Bloomberg among.
Hundreds of others good to have you both -- is what let me start with this news on poverty on rising dependency.
This how much of this will actually insinuated in itself into the results of the campaign.
A lot world because people are gonna be running about their pockets they're also everybody -- their neighbors -- as we often forget that America.
We're -- were always word about the other guy.
People that if they -- -- wanna my paying for what's happening the other guy on the street.
Because now foreclosures.
Loss of jobs just things that people all around us understand -- nicely.
And the present saying that.
Him that he's righted the ship that are that this is your rhetoric it seems to me.
And it's going down with the ship that the very people who supported this president the most -- the -- hurting the most this economy.
-- inner cities there unemployment rate is double the national average who who is hit by poverty.
Minorities are hit worst by poverty in the very people who support this present the most -- hurting the most hope and change never reach that.
So when you talk about the macro sense of the economy everybody hurts yet the president's -- -- -- 3-D strategy distort Romney's record.
Deflect from your own and divide America classic democratic -- moment.
But the point is to win the election season and do whatever is gonna do and it would the other side of the civil position they would do fact that this thing.
That's not the question here the question is.
What's gonna happen dollar -- -- how people are gonna look at it they're gonna look at the unemployment number they're gonna look at the at the of the other employment number which is what nearly sunk Ronald Reagan in 1984.
And -- look at very carefully because people have more economic information -- -- rather history and his his country.
A couple of -- part of that information certainly is that we have 23 to 25 million.
Americans who have been disenfranchised.
Not more -- but by -- this very free enterprise capitalist economy.
That we are so proud.
And that this president seems incapable.
-- re starting if you will at least when it comes to job creation.
Is that going to be the the fulcrum point for this election and this economy.
Jobs jobs jobs jobs it's always the case and the president whether he's to blame -- not where's it.
Can he get past that he's got to have the congress Kamal what's up in the congress and got to come up with something pretty quick at least to be a discussion about to deflect criticism of not.
Will be wearing that jobs problem.
As we watch governor Romney -- -- This is a man who had a message delivered to -- fire fire station number one -- -- Virginia and Friday a week ago.
He first made reference to the fact that the president declared himself to be the candidate government leaving him the opportunity to be the champion of free enterprise capitalism.
We have not heard much of that message that the president.
Game while on the Friday the thirteenth speech that was a gift to -- and he did take it and run -- it.
He went on offense for too long he was on defense threat and to play any good sporting match and to win you have to have an offense -- a defensive team.
Right now Romney needs to continue that offensive.
-- you also have to tell us who's behind the curtain who are the people he relies on.
For the economy for jobs and we haven't really seen the people to support team around him that he'll bring to government we need to see more of that.
What we know to the people are under a professor Gregory -- -- at Harvard.
And dean Glenn Hubbard both of them from the Bush Administration.
What's the impact of that.
-- be great TV and quite frankly and we wanted to be quite memorable you wanna go back to the bad for the way it was well vote for this -- That's a real serious problem -- gotta get some people were more forward looking.
Gotta put them -- very fast the issue here Lou is what is the campaign begin for Mitt Romney.
Who -- it's got to begin right after the -- mention.
Because -- set -- it yet I hope that this if you if you permit -- that the strategy here celeb Barack Obama throw over bomb and then what direction W.
Long before that -- just don't have -- time you only have 64 campaign days from the convention to election data beat incumbent president.
Mitt -- do real well on raising money and spending money the president currently spends his campaign money like he spends our money in deficit.
-- and I think that in order for -- be successful you have to have great policies that bring prosperity.
And unite the country and patriotism the message should always be hopeful from Romney unlike the president was very pessimistic.
But the president is has been -- in -- -- and avoid I mean the last couple Beers and man.
Who you -- soared with the rhetoric of hope and change.
Or quickly turn to -- I think it's fair to say very negative rhetoric.
About how much of the campaign will be determined on the ability of -- of the candidate to ignite patriotism.
You know if you're going to that poll you've got a pretty good sense of national purpose and your pretty supportive of this country so I I'm not sure.
How that translates help me I'm not sure translates of all what does translate is very basic issues that apply to average people.
Are you eating regularly how often you're eating -- your paying your mortgage.
How often -- -- and are you late or your friends late are people in trouble and who's helping it -- people are also wanna support a leader like Ronald Reagan.
Who is very.
Hopeful the best -- is America always ahead of us know that makes a big difference in confidence not only in the marketplace but in the voters if they feel that the best days are ahead.
Under Romney -- -- will make the change but they have.
A choice to make do we go with what we have -- we make a change -- -- defeated incumbent president don't happen that -- and.
In the case of Reagan.
Communication skills I'm sure this president would love to be able to somehow.
Adopt and man whose.
Ability to be both firm -- and at the same the same time.
-- warm personality and I -- governor Romney would like.
To embrace as well and thank you both for being here appreciate your analysis and look forward to talking -- throughout.
