But there are at the -- -- -- for a moment to last night in the politics here domestically of course the big speech from Mitt Romney there reviews are.
Are coming in -- from last night in at Tampa.
He doubt among other things to restore America some of the phraseology that was employed and from Fox News Steve Brown is covered at all.
-- live in Tampa this morning but -- standing out in terms of a lead as we say and in the news business coming out of the Romney's speech from last night.
Well I think there's this the one -- is that the general election campaign is on -- typically that does happen right about the Labor Day weekend and surprise surprise the Labor Day weekend is upon itself.
What's left to pick up in last night's big speech in terms of undecided and softly committed voters.
Our folks that just don't know what to do if they like the president personally -- not happy -- way things are.
And Mitt Romney is trying to offer those spoke specifically at least last night -- speech and alternative.
Simply tell you're describing the current president -- not the right guy for the job.
The president hasn't disappointed you because he wanted to.
The president has disappointed America because he hasn't led America in the right direction.
He took office -- that without the basic qualification in the most Americans have.
And one that was essential to the task at hand.
He had almost no experience working in the business jobs they -- -- about government.
Florida senator was the man who introduce Romney and he talked again about how.
There -- Barack Obama was a good -- and a good husband a good father just in his words quote a bad president.
We heard similar sorts of things from Clint Eastwood may be biggest star at least Hollywood type anyway -- -- -- speaking at the convention last night.
Talking about how.
Politicians are employees and it's OK sometimes when things don't where -- work out to let them go -- -- will probably gonna hear a bit more about this.
When Mitt Romney took that.
Made that announcement -- accepted the nomination.
That the campaigns -- was the signal that -- are diving into a different campaign war chest the general election campaign fund.
The campaign made a very specific distinction between the -- the roll call -- -- Tuesday him accepting it.
Today is a day -- -- last night was the moment we sickest are diving -- -- those bonds the campaign says from here on out.
They will be able to -- dollar for dollar what the Obama campaign's -- that's on top -- The super pac money that's coming in on both sides -- it is going to be a much more arduous.
Campaign and -- we're here for the Romney campaign specifically and directly -- -- -- battleground states.
For the next what 67 days that's what I'm back it -- Countdown is on Steve Brown thank you very much from Tampa and Steve makes very good point when he started his report by -- the general election campaign is underway and we say -- well obviously we know that.
And as he says coming up on Labor Day we always say that.
-- remember when I wanna Romney's chief strategist was criticized months ago.
For basically giving up the strategy that everybody knows is employed in the general election which is that you move back to the standards try to get the swing -- can -- and you could see in the tone of last night's speech that that was what Romney was doing there was.
He saying to people who voted for President Obama in 2008 I understand why you voted form but if you were happy -- on the day you voted for him.
That's there's something wrong with that that was a soft argument that didn't attack the president that's meant to people who voted for him last time around didn't -- Republicans.
-- -- I think you know -- -- Millie -- talking about the battlegrounds -- I think Florida once again is gonna be key to the celestial -- for Romney yeah especially for Rodney -- can't connect to those voters and I got back to Paul Ryan.
Who has been so it was to scale back on Medicare which he should be doing that's -- Paul Ryan could be.
Actually a problem for the Romney campaign a money if they're gonna dial back the dialogue from Ryan on Medicare because of the importance of the -- -- floor.
