It's -- and Washington and and right here right now Bill Kristol is joining us of the weekly standard.
And he said last Thursday all Paul Ryan was Romney's choice for vice president bill is also hate Fox News contributor and bill there's so much of the focus on Ryan's budget particularly has Medicare plans.
Does that resonate with voters until there is some sort of urgency about -- sky high interest rates are sky high inflation.
Will people connect with the need to fix entitlements.
Yes of them connect with a need not to implement Obama cared to do a better version of Health Care Reform and that connect with -- fact the -- of one trillion dollar.
Deficits what was the Tea Party about in 2010 move the economy wasn't great but it wasn't horrible -- begun to recover.
There was a raging inflation as you say there wasn't there -- high interest rates.
But of reason for the -- -- -- trillion dollar deficits well guess what we've had two more years -- trillion dollar deficits.
I think what -- rank and do what Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan can do is put together.
The narrative we cannot afford the current.
Debt and deficit we're going bankrupt the current Medicare program is -- is bankrupting us.
It's -- what what -- Medicare is staying on the course we're on we're going off a cliff so we have to change we have to reform.
And Ryan is laid out a practical.
An effective for -- plants I think it's the right pick and I think through Romney and -- need to engage this debate my only fear is that they'll back off a little.
Get nervous listen to the liberal media.
A -- and say oh well gee this is dangerous for us the date they need to aggressively make the case this is this saves Medicare and is good for the economy there's already every.
-- of the granny off the cliff -- that is it is out there and it's comical but it really goes to the way that the left in the Democrats will argue this in the coming months.
To that point.
In terms of explaining.
Their -- mr.
Romney and mr.
Ryan how critical will the debates be in the coming months.
-- -- one -- what what for the debates and is the Medicare actuaries say that we're going off a cliff with current Medicare the danger isn't changing Medicare the dangers leave it the way it is.
The debates will be important.
The debate commission the self appointed bunch -- who -- decided.
-- the moderator should be.
Very bad list in my opinion -- -- nice individuals not -- what is with a should be moderator is no one from Fox News know Chris Wallace though -- there.
Candy Crowley CNN who said over the weekend that the -- -- would be a disaster.
Martha Raddatz -- -- national security correspondent but I I know or I think she's pretty clearly a liberal.
So it's and it's I don't believe -- -- campaign needs to roll over and take this self appointed group of debate commissioners.
-- I prefer to see different formats federal have to be an hour and a half.
What isn't -- say you know what I'd be happy to debate Joseph -- of the from the campaigns say.
Look we're gonna do is you two debates is enough for Romney and President Obama -- got to run the country Europe is percent to.
But vice president -- not doing anything one of the debate every week for the next twelve weeks Paul Ryan Joseph Biden around the country -- from college campuses will be fantastic.
Does it up Paul Ryan need to be of more applicable to given -- really negative ads -- -- they cut touched on.
The way the a -- the campaign has been going after Mitt Romney whether that is tax returns bank capital but then.
The Mitt Romney kill my wife -- really according to many people stepped over the line does Paul Ryan needed to aggressively get out there.
And maybe be tougher than mr.
Yeah I think you'll be tough enough I think the key problem around the campaign is that is not being tough enough and and and knocking President Obama.
Or -- responding to be on whereas.
It's that there has been a lack of a sense of where would -- -- the after the country's not in great shape people understand that they wanna know what the Romney Ryan plan is.
I think Paul -- could be a tough responder to attacks but I think the most important thing -- could do was help make the case for the Romney right vision for America.
Great to see bill thank you so much bill Chrysler has always -- sent.
