Accident thanks to calm the latest Rasmussen poll shows President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney.
Essentially a dead heat President Obama leading by just one percentage point there.
As a race enters its final weeks Kevin -- in this -- senior economic advisor for the Romney campaign.
A senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute joining us now from Washington DC.
Kevin -- to save the one thing that mr.
Romney will do try and push ahead with his economic agenda that he has not been doing.
And it needs to be doing in previous weeks.
What well I think that the biggest thing coming up is that governor Romney is gonna have a chance to speak directly to the American people in the debates.
And to challenge President Obama.
You know what -- the untold stories in this campaign for example is that President Obama has absolutely no plan to create jobs.
In -- that thing mirror waving at the convention his his four trillion dollar plan was actually just his budget from last year.
Which went to the floor in both the house in the senate and got no votes even from Democrats and so.
We've got a president -- totally -- and he hasn't made any proposals at all I've never seen before in American politics and and yet that's had a conversation is not really getting through because of the mainstream media bias.
-- -- group mr.
Romney can also speak for himself and he has been widely criticized even by.
I I was watching the O Reilly factor -- -- rally just last night about lack of specifics.
And he was asked in that interview on sixty minutes to get into specifics about the tax breaks -- he would get rid.
And he -- of backed off of that question does he is he rather going to get.
Give us more specific information about what's he wants to do to the tax -- just as one example.
What -- the tax code is actually the one place where he's been criticized for that if you look he's got a plan for Medicare for Medicaid for Social Security.
He's got a plan for everything and Obama has no plan whatsoever as a when you -- you about specifics about that corner of what he's proposed the tax plan.
Then you're really really pushing the envelope towards Romney in a way that you never never do to Obama Obama has no plan whatsoever.
Not now the fact is that debt -- -- taxes on wealthier Americans and then Q okay but let's look at that lending because it because -- the yield.
President Obama when you ran last time on now I graduated nannies they -- election could -- -- I'm personally interested in this.
I don't know I don't know so what got cut is he getting get just since the -- -- getting into specifics on all those other issues will he do is same with tax reform.
Well he's given a heck of a lot of.
Specifics on tax -- for -- including the rates that he's gonna give us and he's gonna do that by broadening the base.
What he hasn't done is put lines in the sand on base broadening and and he's done that because he studied in 1986 tax act which is which is reform is modeled after and back then what happened was that Republicans Democrats sat down and -- put everything on the table they negotiated a deal won't.
Well if he puts lines in the sand now that basically the tax that'll ever happen well governor Romney knows how to govern in a bipartisan way and that's why is proposing the way he -- a cabinet.
-- he'll concede this is well if he starts giving specifics.
Then they up his upon they Obama campaign can then get into.
While you're gonna raise taxes on these -- -- and is that really is it really more of a political reason at this point in the election cycle.
You know I I think fit -- fit the political reason is that he wants the thing to pass next year.
-- recognizes that to do that then he's gonna have to change the tone in Washington.
Now he's coming in as an outsider who governed in -- state with what 85% Democrats and he knows what it takes to get things done and one of the things you don't do is go after the really you know.
Most treacherous areas of the code and and draw lines in the sand so that you can't negotiate an anonymous basis.
You know I think the distinction between governor Romney and -- Obama has something to be very very clear in the debates.
And it's hard to see now again we've got a president wouldn't hope proposal whatsoever in -- and you know here we're talking about footnotes in the Romney flip.
Well you know what -- -- -- like talking about but nets and I'm sure there -- a lot more nerds and dorks.
And -- and rumors out there just like making a dividend of us Kevin thank you Kevin half thank you very.
