We of the day.
Right now Republicans set taking to the convention stage last night bashing President Obama for saying that.
Government made it easier for Americans to build their businesses.
To a man with the jury from the bravery of the greatest generation since the innovators and -- -- -- -- that today this is -- story.
Think our America this -- the America we know because we the next.
That's the argument you heard over and over a lot of people think got me a -- while rising star in the party David for doesn't joins us now editorial page editor Washington examiner she's running for congress that -- -- -- you talk to that was just one.
Not selection we made David got to highlight.
What was the theme by yesterday went on -- and Romney and and -- governor Chris Christie in prime time do you think the Republicans established what they set out to.
Well they certainly said we built it enough times -- I would think they established the theme.
You know it's it's a good topic though and and what President Obama -- is somewhat revelatory.
You how did this argument that both he and Elizabeth Warren -- it syndicated in Massachusetts have need.
You know some out.
Big government is responsible -- -- if you think that you worked really hard and you are Smart and all of that you're wrong about that.
You didn't build that it's not the government doesn't contribute and help business it's not -- we don't all benefit from government when it's done -- I think what's important though is that yes -- -- in which the collective that the community is always working for the common good in in certain ways.
But we've replaced the community with big government and remember that Obama when he said that you didn't build it.
He was saying it in the context of arguing that you need to pay higher taxes and -- -- trying to say.
Businesses should feel grateful they should be happy to fork over -- higher percentage of the of their revenues.
When you know at a time when business is hurting and people -- out of the job.
It's -- and that's why pick I think that the line resonates very long that's why they chose to make that that the in the whole day and again they said it -- must -- and a thousand.
All -- all what I sought and in in the writing in the background the signage and everything else and -- you can argue about whether the president's specific comments on that day were taken out of context of what he really meant by -- to your point.
We've heard Elizabeth Warren that I've seen articles -- about it you go all the way back to FDR mean people of made this essential argument about the role of government.
And you know and that's the essential argument in this campaign -- how big of a government do we want.
How does Paul Ryan tonight as he'll take center stage how does he articulate that does he do specifically.
And you know go one.
Program after another and say here's what I proposed in congress or does he need to be broader than he usually is.
I think he will be broad and if you don't Ryan is the kind of guy who can talk the fine points we had a mean for -- board meeting just back in May.
And it's it's so impressive to watch him get into the nitty gritty we have reporters -- -- experts on things like health -- were asking questions and Ryan can dive down -- did you.
Not what he wants to do tonight certainly.
He wants to present a broad vision and what I that you're going to see and talk about -- the talks a lot about which is.
The idea of managed decline of America vs the idea future prosperity.
There were reaching a point where entitlements are just one issue but they happen to be a big one because of the large number of retirees small number of workers behind -- you have the sort of patent patent passing through the the -- -- -- right now where you've got this huge Bolger retirees going into the retirement system and few workers behind them.
To pay the bills and so that's the problem that he's known best for -- dressing up.
But -- -- -- overall vision on taxes.
In on entitlements in on fiscal and economic issues generally Ryan has generated and a large number of ideas and tax policy for example.
I think we're gonna hear a lot about economic prosperity.
Going into the future -- is managed decline.
And while more for Bret -- on the -- speech later this hour in the meantime thanks to David effort also from the Washington examiner we're gonna continue to bring you the latest.
On hurricane -- -- -- we continue both from the ground we heard from Jeff Flock and also we have an analysis on the economic.
Impact of course that includes energy.
And one of the keys there the path.
