More on that and what he makes of a lot of these companies it seemed to be even those who benefited senator distancing themselves.
From the president.
Well you know that that.
The president has his position I voted against the bailout and SP TM.
I have concerns when the government picks winners and losers as opposed to when citizens people who -- -- buy things make a decision of how they wanna spend their own money and that's kind of the way.
Free enterprise works in the and the president so many ways is of as you have been at war with the public it was so with the private sector was.
-- -- surprise there are looking when the president was there shortly after the rescue that.
He is he had been in Michigan right now this was the stated that -- -- you had someone like Mitt Romney even -- born there is.
Was against the ballot that was thought to good it's a give -- it suits -- the Democrats and and the president could lose Michigan well he could any should because of the issues of the job it's.
Economy the debt and the amount of spending that's happening in this administration one out of three Americans thinks that the country's heading in the right direction two out of three believes it's heading in the -- -- what's going.
And on these battleground states I mean.
It's did much to these two tips from close to you know around the table for Mitt Romney we're not there yet but I mean.
That's a who'd a thought doesn't.
Well I think it can happen -- when you take a look at over forty months of unemployment over.
Eight point 8%.
In a country which should have had a much better rebound after the recession.
People are not happy with the fact that there are 23 million Americans either unemployed or underemployed people want to go back to work in this country.
We it was what we've seen the policies of this administration they have made it worse and we can do better and the American people expect better and they just are not getting -- -- from this administration this president.
Now I I've I -- on this question a lot -- -- -- for somebody like Barbara Walters here but it's a feeling things in for a lot of people and there's the rap against it does look of the Republican nominee.
-- serious business and very astute.
But emotionless and doesn't drive passion.
Not as likable as Barack Obama big problem for him because in this economy right now.
He should be that is Mitt Romney leading by ten points and he's not and that's because he's not likable.
Do you think that's an issue.

Barack Obama has failed.
We can do better and Mitt Romney's a partially due.
Is that gonna make up for the fact that a lot of the -- conservatives here still don't trust him.
Well I believe that you know you win by building a coalition -- you have a broad coalition of people who all believe we can do better than what we have under Barack Obama.

In various states are working to try to elect Republicans to the senate.
But we also need Mitt Romney in the White House he is the one person.
Who can make sure.

Well I'm not gonna stop working until we get them -- senator thank you very very much from the beautiful state of Wyoming senator.
