It former advisor dog -- is via.
-- -- the Republicans seem to take the advantage this weekend by posing that question all you better off now.
Democrats were all over the place -- -- response but seemed to come down to.
Yet we're better off than four years ago when bush had made such a massive -- what do you make of that respond.
It's the democratic response only works if it's done in a comparative contact Stuart.
So they have to blame bush because as the poll numbers you cited correctly suggest.
If -- seen in the abstract.
People say Democrats haven't done the job well enough to deserve reelection do you think that's a good enough response to win the election.
It might be I'm not sure will know Wednesday night when we hear from Bill Clinton when people were most assuredly.
Better off now over the weekend poll Ryan brought up Jimmy content.
And said that's.
It was you know -- can we just roll out to bite for a second I think we've got to -- abolish it I want to show you what polls weren't sent about -- for the presidency a lot of things that he will.
But he can't tell you that you're better off.
Simply put the Jimmy Carter years look like the good old days compared to where we are right now.
-- -- -- -- Where most voters though I'm -- -- majority of voters do not remember the content you.
They don't but they understand that those were not good times for America.
And President Obama is worst fears -- absolutely.
Is that this election will become a referendum on him he will be compared in the elite media as Paul Ryan tried to do to former President Carter.
And that the impact politically will be catastrophic for his reelection if you are advising him today and he speaks on Thursday night right what would you tell -- Thirteen 61.
He's got -- offer a forward.
Charles to the debt crisis he's got to offer some sort of the vision.
First swing voters to how we get out of this fiscal mess -- it.
He just can't say I'm gonna help the middle class he's got to do that as well as the requisite bush -- which -- know we're gonna get.
Tonight on the agenda for the DNC president can't -- present content appears via videotape.
Pat Quinn governor of Illinois.
amount government member what do you make about -- Well the Democrats don't have a particularly deep bench.
I know Pat Quinn -- a client of mine.
He's somebody who's raise taxes -- a state we've discussed admitted that it very oriented and sold put right now that I think that's that's right.
O'Malley has been a more successful governor but.
He had problems with that question of are you better off -- -- I think tonight is is basically about Michelle Obama by -- if I have a right.
But the bench strength of the regular politicians that -- Democrats week each week and yes I'm not do it no it isn't.
For those are just the facts the Democrats have Michelle.
Bill and Iraq that's the convention for them full stop what do you think what you think Michelle Obama's gonna say tonight she's gonna talk about her husband's compassion.
His concern for people his concern for the middle class she is far better like frankly than he is and I think she's gonna try to transfer some of her.
Popularity and to empathy for a president who's lost the mantle of hope and change.
Any impact from sixteen trillion dollars crossing now mark.
I think it underscores.
The huge issues we face.
Bill Clinton will speak to that on Wednesday night I suspect I just feel that they Democrats are going into this on the defense.
-- as they stopped -- -- conference day off on defense -- like you're an identical they are on defense but to win the election they've got to keep.
Mitt Romney in the Republicans.
On their back -- and so far there's a good chance they can do that.
I I do find it ironic that so we could go so we can happen -- once that Mitt Romney's got a human ego that necessities of fantastic human being -- -- -- has specifics.
So I guess that's where the Obama's gonna go in and you that a debt as an excuse to raise taxes.
Well he's gonna be for taxes for upper income people who's gonna say we've got to raise some revenue but more important Charles I think there's got to be some vision.
Of where he wants to take the country you just can't get reelected with negative ads OK -- -- always appreciate it thanks very much prerogative but we.
