The fact is he can't run from the fact this.
-- that the economy's in -- -- jobs are now where they should be the deaths out of control everything he promised four years ago and debates and speeches across America.
They haven't come anywhere near what we promise and so that's number one number two -- we're gonna lay out a better vision for this country and and -- -- is going to going to do that tonight.
Is it going to be is Steven Hayes and I were discussing earlier is he going to be aggressive is he going to take this.
This debate to the president if you will.

For governor Romney and if you think about where.
Where debaters go and they need to the stays on as it is it is it is is it kill shot I mean you've got.
This -- economy the debt.
The jobs of the facts and then you go to what you're going to do for this country what's your vision for the first hundred days what are you gonna do.
To get -- this economy out of the ditch and it's simple.
And Obama care reduced spending from 25 done it's 18 cents on the dollar small business taxes from 3525.
20% across the board on an individual income tax cuts and then Keystone Pipeline that's five things.
Very specific that we can get rolling on in the first hundred days that's important.
Price president Obama's got to be thinking right now all of his advisors thank goodness that they're debating governor Romney -- rights grievous are you are.
You're ready for a very here.
Well you know what the president has -- -- and spit balls and and and calling names and playing game high school.
Student government games -- they're getting serious about what he did.
What he promised he would do and how how does the next four years going to be any better than this misery that he served up.
Well let me ask you this we're -- -- a number -- were seeing some tightening in some of the battleground states but still -- for the president we're seeing a tightening in the national polls.
But for example in Ohio.
That is a significant lead at this late date.
How concerned are you is this debate its outcome if you will and I'll put that in quotation marks likely to be able to move that measure and Ohio.
-- -- think so with you know you might have sixty or seventy million people watching tonight it's gonna be rehashed and and replayed a you know all week.
I think it's important I think debates matter and I think it's important for Americans sit.
So hone in on and focus then what's at stake in this country we're not fighting for the future of the Republican Party okay.
We're fighting for the future of America that's it makes all of this so different.
And and the fact is is that this president he's not your daddy's Democrat so you know what he's not Bill Clinton.
He's not -- candidate he is an unabashed you know leftist and the White House that we have to defeat and and that's where -- Is governor Romney you bring him President Clinton is governor Romney going to being the the explainer in chief is Bill Clinton turned out to be for the Democratic Party -- mean President Obama made a joke of it but it really was he was as clear in articulating the policies that have been followed by this administration clear than anyone and in the administration.
We're -- Romney be -- the the Romney perspective administration.
Well I think it's gonna be very clear I think those five points there rattle off before five point you're going to be hearing a lot about.
And you know the federal -- eagle about what what's that there were five.
If it exactly.
And -- -- -- -- -- -- yet to be concise and and and clear and that's what governor Romney's benefit is going to do tonight.
But I think you also have to show.
What what's the president's record I mean he doesn't want to talk about his record is record stinks and the American people knowledge and that's so we have to talk about.
Price previous chair of the Republican national -- we thank you very much.
