Our let's go to our other top story of the day which is the Republican National Convention wrapping up tonight in Tampa Florida but last night it was the former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice.
A warning the United States standing in the world is endangered as she put it then Paul Ryan wrapped up tonight with a speech accepting the parties.
Vice presidential nomination with us to talk about that -- look forward to tonight as well -- Texas Republican congressman.
Lewis Goldberg duck congress and thank you very much for coming on what you think -- last night.
-- -- -- Our daughters fantastic and you mentioned Condoleezza Rice she pointed out what I heard from West African last year's so.
Who said look we were so excited when -- elected a black president but since then we've -- your country getting weaker and weaker police tell the people in Washington.
We need America strong for the rest stop us to have a safe life -- -- please don't get any weaker and I think that's the message Condoleezza Rice was giving.
And then Paul was fabulous course he pointed out.
This president will be on your side and I thought he -- added instead of on your back like this administration.
The thing that Paul Ryan did certainly in the second half of this speech we've talked about it a number times this morning really -- the crowd going you could see people identifying with what he was saying which wasn't a surprise he's very popular.
In that room and that's one of the reasons -- sure that he was put on the ticket we'll Condoleezza Rice -- you talk about the ideals of the party.
Identify them with Mitt Romney specifically but she articulated them.
Very well and it's receiving as you just I gave it you know very very good reviews across the board of what about tonight what -- Mitt Romney have to deal mean after all he's the guy.
At the top of the ticket how does he make the specific argument that he.
Personally should be the next president of the United States -- the key for you -- You know everybody knows well most people know about his background know how successful these -- everything he's ever done so really I think tonight.
He needs to let this convention let the country Citi.
What we saw in Texas after the primary was over.
Four years ago we came and spoke in Texas asset introduced in residency and and I had thousands of people tell me after that -- -- we -- seen that Mitt Romney.
During the primary we would have supported him we just never saw that so I think -- -- alleged that country see the real -- Behind all of that success.
That -- -- impressed with him as and Romney -- pointed out.
She did that the other night the -- she did the idea of making that case does he said it's been a challenge for him throughout and Paul Ryan.
-- didn't have that same type -- challenging he became into the night last night with the support of the room it was they are already could see it as he walked out.
I wonder if that'll be the same -- the feeling in the room will be the same tonight for for governor -- I think I think the feeling in the room will be the same people are so anxious for leadership -- our.
-- is to get out of a thunderstorm.
And was in his would or protestor -- -- -- finished.
You know we were shaken hands he's gonna give us call when he gets to Washington now we disagree -- a number of things but.
And he's a staunch Democrat but there is room for solidarity.
People are hungry for leadership and I think we're Mitt Romney is going to be giving that.
Right and the well to be interesting to see what tax.
He takes -- indeed that the battle for the undecided voters is something I think people pick apart.
On the after all this is -- one thing to fire the base again is is congressman Ryan did last night.
I think it's interesting that this speech is being made in the state of Florida and that the convention is being held there because if you look at.
Just electoral politics it's hard to imagine Mitt Romney winning.
The White House without winning Florida I mean I don't know that there's a scenario there might be he would be very difficult.
How does he do that tonight does he go easier may be on the immigration issue that he might otherwise if Florida was his clothes or is there a strategy that you can think of that would be.
They'll be conducive to winning that state Florida which he needs to do desperately.
Well I think people have grown so cynical from all the lava that the promises of pandering that's been done.
So I don't think GE these do anything but just -- straight out be straightforward and honest here's what we're gonna do.
Because I heard all of the hope and change stuff and that we got the change and now we need somebody to actually give us open I think it.
He will do that if he's just honesty always.
As they -- send Washington no matter how cynical you get it's never enough to catch up.
People have grown so cynical right I think that would just welcome somebody be an honest in saying this is what we're gonna do.
We're telling -- now and these are the practical things we're gonna do and you'll be able this judge not by you know great.
But by actually solid leadership going forward.
I think they just want candor they just want leadership.
As Chris Christie is prove it and I'm glad we keep inviting Chris Christie display get them -- someday the rest of our leadership will pick up on what he has said.
Do what just and I think that's what they wanted to sing for Mitt Romney.
That this is a guy that's going to not just promises change right and actually take us in the right direction congressman -- thank you sir here's.
