And more we welcomed -- to the broadcast -- campaign strategist former Reagan political director.
Fox News football analyst Ed Rollins former deputy assistant to president.
Bush Brad -- Don't want let's start with first of all they the Republicans didn't get a bounce.
Brad what -- you expecting.
Is this going to be something that to impress the Republicans who didn't get a bounce this convention.
Well I don't think a -- was it was really necessary.
Ryan was introduced to the American public well in advance he certainly helping fund raising.
Exciting air base I think -- citing the general population he's -- he's dynamic most importantly he's an expert on the economy.
And these conventions -- one after the other which is not typical usually there's a lot more space between convention so I -- I think the Republicans did a great job.
In setting the tone the message and most importantly the message of victory which they have to take on the economy on November 6.
What you're listening to brand and I'm ready are -- turn to start march maturing on whatever the Republicans still quite I suppose all of America feels the same -- right also.
-- What do you what do you think I mean I don't -- -- you know you gotta be disappointed you -- -- I'm just format not I'm not shocked I thought that's caught the Romney campaign -- -- it at a 1011 point bounce I've -- -- a lot of stuff over the years and and the problem that happens is that.
This is a polarized electorate.
And so there's not much room to -- is -- two or 3% differential here in this race and that's what it's gonna end up at the end of the convention.
What do you think is that are very solid convention we introduced -- Ryan came off very well Romney performed as he believes he can I think we of the unified party.
And the most important thing is day by day the momentum is coming our way and Obama -- making idiotic states like -- like an incomplete.
-- -- -- college professor when I don't do this kind of stuff we don't giving completes anymore it would basically when you go to the work you get (%expletive).
Well here's the -- runs the Democratic National Convention -- -- they.
The way he grated Dunn mayor BR.
Right -- of Los Angeles.
I give -- an a for effort.
I give him.
And making sure that Americans are better off today.
Than they were four years ago.
I think he's being humble.
When he says that.
I do believe that we need four more years.
Army that -- purpose right Olivia.
And what did they need four more years of full employment for all the team that's around them and at the end of the day the country will -- desperate shape there's no guarantee will be one iota better.
The premise is not are you better than you were four years ago the premises four more years of this team these policies we have -- -- -- I'm Brad you said that the Republican succeed and introducing.
Congressman Ryan vice presidential candidate.
In the in these conventions realistically how important are they.
What is their real impact on the outcome say November 6.
Well it sets the tone for the general election and certainly.
That would Ryan's speech and some of the all stars we had Christy.
And rubio and Martinez if it let the American people know there's a new face to the Republican Party new leadership.
Certainly different leadership than we're used to seeing.
In the Republican Party so in that case I think setting the tone for the general election is still very important even though I think in the future we'll probably be seeing three -- conventions.
Don't you think -- Republicans missed an opportunity.
Not to put up a twelve tonne.
Of our governor Romney and I don't you have.
I person can imagine being very disappointed right now.
That you all didn't do that -- like the Democrats have done for President Obama.
But we don't attempt to -- -- thousand seat stadium and have to take those.
Follows free tickets and trying to jam 120000 seat them because of potential rain which is what to do this convention is going to be a very big disappointment can't live up to what it was.
Four years ago was all about promises we -- know Obama and the problem that he faces today -- we know.
The First Lady give the greatest speech in the world tonight we know with a man as we know he can't in the.
You know and that's -- policies -- -- policy like this I think -- the president what do you think Brad.
I I think looks pretty good I can't wait to see in the -- -- it and it starts to melt away like his record.
Or -- with fat without live we're we're -- -- have to say expected to when we appreciate you being here Brad -- thank you Ed Rollins thank you.
