One day from the first of the three presidential debates both candidates and Pratt and strategy -- Neil Cavuto is heading out there to cover for us senior vice president managing editor of Fox Business but he's here now before then -- -- -- -- time for us which we always appreciate knowing their time.
You know these are included and it -- have conflicted with the debate itself I would've asked them.
Put the debate.
Back a little bit calmer -- again we really want to talk to me we believe that.
This debate this expectations are hilarious you know how -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And it's amazing that I didn't even get up to descend into the tightest I myself -- the other thought that's actually had they're actually very good debaters and and have people forget -- keep.
Points in the primary process.
You know Mitt Romney did rise to occasion but it was -- -- to Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum.
There was one memorable exchange of course is prepared so blue -- when.
Acted as an admitted there had the president course it's been awhile -- since he's debated but if you think about it when he takes time.
Congress and has a chance respond obviously not in the same venue because they're not they're simultaneously.
-- forcefully argues for his point of view but I.
Having said that it really is to the challenges benefit to just share the stage for the president because venues are seen as is equal.
And in and you have to prove to people watching you that you deserve to be Siemens.
You think they're two weaknesses are the president has -- to get there and get irritated.
And well obviously if your Mitt Romney you wanna get under his skin because that is since -- that he's -- scanned.
And and if you Mitt Romney you wanna.
But I also think that you -- things are decided oftentimes on things you don't Citi.
Where there was Al Gore you know sign -- nor.
Complaining on the makeup and -- make a director George doesn't want looking at well I think there's a lot right -- -- this as a demo I think they're given far too much credence -- in retrospect.
I think sometimes that the debates either confirm a trend.
Very rarely do they reverse that I think the election sixty was very tight -- An analyst it was under -- little earlier saying that well.
You know that that debate turned it to JFK there -- many polls that show.
The race was already dead even at that point but if you don't screw it out on it can he can keep a poll lead in place.
And and added that swear.
Mitt Romney hopes to score some points he is just.
Not a fan of the way he's been as he says vilified by this administration and in the media and he wants to reintroduce himself Ronald Reagan suffered the same -- 1980.
The media casts him as this reckless cowboy is gonna blow up the world right and I I always -- -- we chatted but for guys about this.
I always think when there's an economic change horses midstream but we have to be convinced of that other horse.
It notes and does Romney need to hit in terms of talking about the economy is it more about.
The president of the president's presentation.
Of his responsibility for instead of Romney's -- for.
Well I it stinks and solicit the always -- and to want another four years is this.
If you wanna get a losses wagon I'm your guy but here's what I would do right -- right had to be some of that I do think -- I have to say.
We know what we're gonna get more what we've gotten -- to -- do you like that that's not.
Undated and he's got to step back and say here's what I will do a little bit differently now Ronald Reagan was a little bit more -- -- would go back to -- you better off.
There anywhere for years ago that's an open debate these days whether it's a slam -- to say you're not.
Depending who you are in the middle of the meltdown the Democrats could argue well you are a little bit better -- But I I think did did how convincing you make the argument.
Of that -- -- Mitt Romney don't settle for middling numbers if -- Barack Obama don't go back to.
The party that brought you.
The environment that I tried to change so each is gonna make their case but I think.
Each task -- us thousand bigger goal here did that we can do better thank you Barack abounds as we need to better than what we're doing now and I hope we can't.
And then that -- this is I think we can do better but I think really in the end Americans want to see who will guide them.
But if this analysis is right you kind of alluded -- it has been a bunch of articles it seems like -- the last couple days that these debates historically don't always change things.
I guess Romney's got to hope that the polls are not.
What they -- another where it's at -- -- -- some of them appear well you know once again I'm not in the -- by the -- and you would discuss this last week that -- is a -- -- moment -- are there at the polling groups that there are gathering in a -- patsy is -- in New York.
Necessary we're gonna really try to stick considered -- Mitt Romney hi there might be a statistical quirk that favors.
The Democrats because of the sample and from 2000 April.
But it's outside the margin and earn some of these swing states what I would -- -- Why at the polls is so close nationally are some of these deaths -- states not so of course I will note this morning.
I'm because -- look at stick with what you do everyday.
They're narrowing again in these swing states in -- Ohio has gone from tend to work Wisconsin Scott from six to student three I think.
-- -- don't -- -- but that states are swinging a little bit.
Differently depending on the -- so they're tightening up again which is probably the nature of the beast but I I think that you know everyone talks about getting the undecided voters.
I I I think it's also about winning over those who think they've made up that -- There were a lot -- -- supporters in 1960 were told -- -- were so impressed with this young Jack Kennedy.
That -- kinds of -- he didn't.
-- -- seems pretty cool he seems okay and and and conversely there were a lot of people.
-- who had problems with George Bush put up against John Kerry that thought well.
He seems a little arrogant move Frankenstein as -- gonna go.
Is George Bush so so they can change your established base to an end and it -- -- got a -- -- such a great job.
They can also galvanize his base at the expanse.
The other guys days -- all stuff we don't know we won't know until looks and and I want singers his Wilson's I'll have some like you -- -- -- bring weapons.
Back up and then Kevin -- thought -- -- deductible is no checks to let them something.
Something -- the ball and chain them.
But he -- that it -- so we're not gonna bring with us thank you know -- -- anything -- Stick around and -- it seems nice.
Josh and anathema to outlet -- -- highlight is that Mexico and around.
We don't care -- -- -- -- that there on day 8 o'clock to sit next to him tomorrow night what did asleep -- but that's not good.
I'm used to it it's just goes in one year in the -- Throughout the yeah exactly a couple of -- special coverage of the first debate starts at 8 PM eastern -- -- and I some.
