Mitt Romney should take.
What you faced.
During mid back in 1993 year under pressure -- one year to release your tax friends indeed did you put to rest there though nobody is.
So is mr.
Romney making a mistake that by dragon this out.
It's death by a thousand cuts and people are mentioning worsening could possibly be I was in Texas not too long ago couple weeks ago -- the doorman at the hotels and when's he gonna just put it out there put it behind it and I said well you know they're worried about bad things that we know the bad things there.
Just get it over -- so the average people on the street are saying.
Just get this behind you and I wish she'd done it right from the get focus now it is becoming more Mormon issue what.
We look bad things adding a lot of people thought on both sides of the -- even -- I'm sure the Democrats would admitted that Harry Reid.
Senator -- would open the line a little Yahoo! over the totally over the -- didn't have the source could name that in just the speculating.
But you're saying that there are bad.
You know I'm not Iranian that they -- -- people are thinking -- bad thing and it gets her release and you start thinking let me start making up stuff of a -- didn't he's got offshore accounts and hidden things I am absolutely positive.
To the extent that I can being outside the campaign of Mitt Romney is and nothing illegal.
He may have taken advantage of tax breaks that you're allowed it to which your lap and take advantage and that's fine.
But that's what people will spinach or.
There -- those who say they don't want to see how much Bain capital's in their who knows have been people are speculating on all kinds of things -- just make it worse than what it is but the fact that someone in Texas would make that remark to you is it too late at this point because.
It seems as if the Obama administration.
Obama campaign is -- Friday.
The conversation what -- driving much of -- even when he comes out with it now be much worse that would have been -- just done upfront which every candidate has had the dual by the way you know we know you have to release more than just the year -- -- gonna get away with.
Romney's chances are I -- justified the math you -- to say.
That the president being an incumbent -- -- -- sixty some electoral votes last time is that is a favorite.
And -- he has to get.
To to seventy to win now so you -- just a small amount of people in a few states that are gonna decide this and today it's quite -- this caricature of Romney is say the rich guy who doesn't connect and those few people that really decide the election.
Now but -- the economy isn't doing better than is doing today I think -- Mitt Romney has a very good chance when he's gonna talk it's always tough for the against income.
Come -- I mean yes right now this month Mitt Romney out.
Raised President Obama learned in the last week but you have the advantage of the incumbency which gives you a lot of leeway and and -- worth a whole lot of money in the bank but how would you spend that money speaking about that money back if you're -- part of Romney's campaign how do you spend that money because the Obama campaign is clearly concerned.
About there -- fund -- Now William go at those states that are the key to the 270 votes and where you figure you you have the chance to do what you can't alienate our state you can't lose Florida.
You have to look at Ohio and you have to look at and Illinois you wanna keep those states -- in play.
And you want to make Romney spend money -- doesn't need to we shouldn't need to welcoming you make -- is the Obama spend money -- -- -- -- would you pick as they pay.
-- I would say Portman.
Well from -- now I think well Chris Christie would be great as it I don't think that would he he's his own person.
And that would be a tough spot creative in great keynote speaker -- At a convention IQ governor governor thank you -- -- -- anti women.
