Now conservatives well they're blasting back one group trying to swing the election.
With -- 45 million dollar and push and swing states as well now take a peek.
I'm pledging to cut the deficit might.
By the end of my first term -- office.
Under President Obama trillion dollars in debt that -- been -- and under this administration every year government.
And it fifteen trillion -- extended life.
-- -- -- I will be held accountable if I don't have this done in three years.
Then there's going to be a one term proposition.
Americans for prosperity Tim Phillips is leading the charge -- All the swing states the battle's going to be -- -- mean that the president is still polling very very -- those states.
He's below 50% though and that's always big trouble about the red flag for him it is and he may be appointed to ahead in Virginia or Florida according some of the recent polls but.
When you're an incumbent this late in the election year only up a couple -- below fifty big trouble.
But what you organization.
Would you call -- a Tea Party organization.
We certainly work with the Tea Party to promote economic policies we've been around since 2004 so we.
I -- -- that we -- party movie certainly work with and and cooperate with the Tea Party groups across the country.
But you've never before I mean this is the first from you guys have actually ever come out and really truly advocated for.
Or against one particular political.
Politician that's -- we've always focus just on the issues and this is a decision we take reluctantly.
Going out and expressly point five million reluctant dollar up well for the first time in in the eight years we've been around.
Actually expressly advocating that someone be defeated in that case in this case President Obama but his policies.
Are causing such a disastrous impact on our prosperity our economic.
A well being we thought we had that.
Now here's the thing I think the main thing you're focusing on is a national debt if I have I have that right you talked -- right now you say the policies but I think you guys really are.
Focusing on narrowing down on specifics that sort of pushed you over the edge in other words you -- -- its emergency we've got to do something we've never done before.
National debt resonated very well on the mid term elections and twenty -- But do you get the feeling that they continue to resonate I don't hear a lot of people talk about it anymore.
It does resonate because people start to figure out that when you have trillion dollar deficits and debt at the level that -- that now.
It impacts the ability of private sector folks to create jobs so it lessens the economic vitality of our nation with all this debt.
Just like in a family when they when it's -- that with debt credit card debt or home dad.
It hurts that cinematic folks get that will be hitting other issues as well this is the first one but it is an important one right you know purchasing.
Make the family analogy because I know my family their people like -- in money too.
That I know they're not gonna pare back their people that I say okay go ahead and -- this album in in other words not just do you -- here for the interview with -- core B.
Right the emotional Tug that sometimes is not based in reality or facts.
Can -- then supersede logic or even economic.
Do you think this sort of approaching you guys are taking to offset these sort of crazy -- were people actually are telling Americans that that somehow Mitt Romney.
Gave other Americans cancer.
Americans are Smart they really are they can sift through an emotional appeal that frankly doesn't have a basis in fact.
And I do trust the good judgment the sound judgment of them.
-- use the issues and he knows -- sad which were putting.
A lot of money behind focus is on a policy the president spends too much government money -- piles of debt it hurts our ability to create jobs real jobs.
We trust American people to focus on that more than emotional.
Tim do you worry about -- organization becoming the issue in other words.
Wording that -- funding from.
We have over 80000 donors.
Somebody big time donors though you know mile radius enroll we -- -- -- -- very generous donors were proud to have him on board you veggies say okay let's say someone so -- these guys are being backed by the Coke Brothers then of course.
They have some become -- like Iraq for some people in.
It to my the my mind detract from the true true issues of the day.
But would you would you say that that argument can be made for you.
David -- is our foundation chairman and we're proud to have his leadership and support in the end Americans look at the policies of this president.
How they're harming prosperity -- -- killing jobs across the country.
And that's gonna -- the attacks from the left trying to demonize good Americans for simply being involved in the they'll be able to the policy process it's making Bob attacks from the left by imitating a piece of him in the New York Times.
Either -- -- had a Buick kid gloves they have -- -- equity guys they Citi yet takes a relatively straightforward approach.
-- -- wall and over the top negativity I guess that's the way to go about it -- We'll focus on the issues I mean we want people we believe if the people look at and that the president's economic record and that record disastrous big government policies.
They're not gonna give the second term it's we're gonna make sure.
While he's trying to get all the ancillary issues out there were focusing on the disastrous impact of his economic policies.
I gotta tell you -- I think almost everyone believes that this election it's an election for the -- attempt thanks -- we appreciate taken time sure -- as soon.
