Wednesday night the debate off those -- headlines already written Obama wins Romney loses -- off a Swiss government.
Two days before the the debate can we assume that that will be the story line yes we can in my personal opinion.
Democrat strategist Pat -- says you cannot trust the mainstream media -- let us.
They'll -- the polling very complicated some of it is -- us some of that miscalculation but some is deliberate in my opinion.
To pump up the numbers using the 2008 -- to give a sense of momentum to the Obama campaign has acted well.
Mort Zuckerman is via US news and world report for the cut in chief right here in New York -- more walking in the program.
Good to be here for hours do you agree with me a DS that but it -- a second establish that -- yeah.
Is firmly in the tank for Obama and they have decided that com want many.
They will say that the president won the debate come Thursday morning.
But I do think that there are many people in what you would call the -- me who support president without question.
But I also think.
There's going to be a huge audience for this they're gonna make up their own mind to a degree they're gonna have a sense of how Romney himself -- he's got that establish himself.
As a viable credible leader of the country and if he does that in there enough terms and the country wants to -- We'll shift to look at Obama right now the country has been focused on Romney.
And that's not the -- it's gonna win the -- old.
Those people who don't watch the full debate I think what's to our business just goes off -- long long time yet most people won't watch the full thing.
That we'll look at the media's response to a couple sound bites from it.
And -- response will be negative towards governor Romney and positive towards President Obama.
I I'm gonna go for I think -- down from media is doing a disservice to America.
By -- -- issues and promoting a left of center president.
Well -- let's and that Wu I don't want -- much I don't wanna I don't know -- I don't know you know I'm not in the establishment media so there's no issue there and you know that I come out.
Even though I originally supported Obama come out very strongly against the effectiveness of his leadership of this country especially on the economy.
There are millions tens of millions of people who have been hurt by the last four years in economic terms nobody can.
Nobody can change -- view they know what's happened to the value don't they know what's happened to employment they know what's happened to their children's futures so they they know what that they also understand that we that it five trillion dollars to the national debt somebody's got to find a way to put that in terms.
That in a sense connects with the American public that -- Romney's job all you have.
Happy with his candidacy so no I am not of course how could you be happy with that in -- in some mysterious way.
He has not been equal to a national campaign but it doesn't mean he isn't talented he's very talented -- Because the media has changed the subject away from the president's record on the economy and -- so -- so called gas on the part of governor wrong.
I agree but you know and we know this happens all the time okay -- president of the presidential candidate.
Has got to be Smart enough not to get himself and -- those -- and he has not.
And pass that particular -- it's not enough and should not be enough to shift the whole.
Will the media but if that does it does he's got to be beyond that that's his challenge he's gonna make up very credible case.
Thanks so much of what's gone with the White House and administration -- misdiagnosed the economy they've misdiagnosed the problems.
You know we had it you know summer recovery escape velocity language coming out of the White House and -- ten.
That think with congress can -- hitting escape velocity you know the Federal Reserve saying we're more focused on inflation in 2010.
Vs economic growth here's a question here's the problem.
Is the American mainstream media is the American Media more focus on economic justice vs economic growth.
To a degree I think that's right I'm -- my own where -- put it this way we -- to recovery to recover from this recovery.
I mean it's just not work -- being with badly structured badly thought through.
And frankly that the possibility of really doing something early enough now what's behind us so everybody's paying the price in terms of the national economy.
But the reflection of that is 2324.
Million people who -- out of work we have more for five million people.
Lesson number working and it it -- with the most stimulative fiscal and monetary policy but people could come up with you they haven't done the job.
You're -- -- publisher you put your finger on the pulse of America has America shifted.
In the last four years shifted to -- -- what we want income redistribution we don't mind low rates of growth longest people -- taking -- with government money -- We shifted some people have -- not everybody OK and my only point is this.
If that if this presidential candidate Mitt Romney could put forth.
A program in that in a forceful and effective way that in -- in which he will address a number in -- it's gonna be up there extending gains.
Or next to Obama in one form or another he's gonna have his chance now where people can compare that this is his last moment -- he doesn't do this well he'll have no chance.
I -- thought he would have -- five to ten points ahead given how bad the economy but it isn't but he still has a chance to do it and this is his last chance.
-- -- Passion that up for a Canadian national I don't know and we haven't heard BCA yet I always about the do it or -- -- Always a pleasure more talk with -- for joining speculation.
