Greg mere thank you but one -- -- Try to as best they can't put you on the spot a little bit of heard a lot of general out generalities this morning a guy and Romney knocked it out.
Of the park you know Chris Christie did this and that but what.
What specifically stood out to you.
About last night when there was Ben Romney or Chris Christie and that you -- watching it is going three months and what I was interest.
-- -- -- -- And rounding really brought out the personal side of Mitt Romney that's what has to the American people have to see that right now they're seeing that the politics they've in they've seen.
The Democrats try to define and -- tried it from his family I think that was important to see these are really.
Unique person -- of a loving father all these things but people who concerned that -- that he works with day in and day out lives with.
And they're they're perspective I think -- Christie if you heard Christie talked about bipartisan cooperation in New Jersey.
Time after time after time and -- that's where this party's gonna have to go we're gonna have to open our ten.
How we're gonna have different a win election we have to bring independents and moderates along as well and that -- tonight everybody is looking forward Paul Ryan.
Great young guy.
Somebody I trusted and worked with a lot when I was as speaker.
He can define.
What is on the minds of a lot of young people -- -- this country going what are we have to get to get back on on the right economic track.
And -- he has the ability to explain that look American and -- and people understand what he's talking about.
And then there's the practical -- political part.
Of all this when you come out of a convention obviously you -- -- everybody's thoughts and prayers are in the gulf and and hoping that the best.
That can be expected at least comes out of the storm that we just reported on -- not they're getting kids are very hard this morning.
But it does provide some sort of -- a competition for.
Attention if that's the way to put it -- with the convention.
And usually do see a bump in the polls out of a convention now I'd like to read Nate Silver at the New York Times and if you -- 538 blog that he does because I feel like he does pretty good job of putting all the polls together.
I saw yesterday he said.
They're fifteen recent polls not the fifteen at the president ahead a pointer to three -- the president had a little bit more than that and the other three had Romney slightly in the lead.
Next week in Ohio or right before the Democratic Convention where do you figure the numbers will be or Dina but you have a -- -- Antioch a right now you look at this a 4646%.
And it's that middle.
And those the people in.
You'll find out.
That those those states that are targeted Virginia and Ohio and Pennsylvania and Colorado and Wisconsin and on those the stage for those independents are gonna be -- and talk to.
That's where this race comes down -- And that's what we have to -- -- -- Q&A state like Wisconsin.
That's that's a big thing and that's where those focuses will be eight and what's -- as concisely she can what's the main message to those people not to the base of the party but for the few as you say.
That haven't decided but will decide the election.
Well my first race ever got involved politics in 1980 has -- of the state legislators -- Ronald Reagan.
Was run for the presidency and nobody really get gave re -- a chance to win.
But -- he was able to.
Enunciated a message.
That they came -- I called the the bungalow Democrats in Chicago the people who work hard work and blue collar people that there won't want to see their mortgages taken care they wanna make sure the retirement through there and they wanna make sure is a future for their kids I think those the few people are gonna cross over.
Plus I don't -- other than those the surge that Obama had.
