That coming up here just a few minutes but right now it's back to politics and of course the presidential debate is something some.
Have just about everybody is still talking about it and from Boston right now radio talk show host and on this of the morning regular.
Michael Graham joins -- so it's good to have Michael we've had a day or two -- -- You know everybody just about on both sides concede take Romney want the other that he was more effective use more aggressive all attacked -- -- How much of a game changer though do you think it was.
You know before that question I wanna lower my charity altitudes if you if I only understand your it will allow it or excuse to how bad.
And that's that's how bad this was of the debug and stretching for all kinds of crazy excuses for -- Obama's.
Terrible performance he got the Braves game changes engine what -- was -- -- -- -- focus change I've said from the beginning.
That of the election is about President Obama he loses no president has ever been reelected with unemployment above 8%.
No president has ever been reelected with -- growth this low no president ever been reelected.
Having two consecutive years of slower growth in other words not only -- things bad.
But they're more bad today -- -- -- a year ago or two years ago and so.
The phrase that you are using is that President Obama -- poll numbers have been defying gravity.
It has been because the focus has been on Mitt Romney Mitt Romney's help with having some gaps the media certainly helped by doing everything they can't -- -- Mitt Romney you know.
You know turns right on or read LB I have a news story -- -- and -- as opposed to President Obama as gas.
But if the focus -- was on President Obama is much much tougher for President Obama to make an affirmative case and that's gonna be.
The difference I also think that -- -- that Mitt Romney was a guy brought the details and the facts and really does hammered number number number number.
And that the -- Debate apparently is going to be.
Iran is a big fat liar they tried this with Paul Ryan actors very effective speech at the -- and I don't think it's gonna work my Boston Herald column today just goes through.
The math of the debate and -- of all the people in American.
Political culture who can make a legitimate case for I'm good at math.
President Obama is the -- -- OK Joseph Biden's awards which -- wears everything the president.
Obama is a very bad record -- his presidency is essentially -- -- word problem.
If you give me a trillion dollars and four years and all -- at a controlled congress.
I will fix the economy in fact what we got was -- the economy's getting worse we've spent a trillion dollars we have -- on.
And Michael its day cannot take issue with one thing you said I don't think that the Democrats are trying to excuse the president's poor performance.
There -- so many commentators out there there we're just -- Charlie Rangel of on this very.
On the 11 o'clock yesterday with us -- that this letter something in the president's coffee.
And -- pay czar floated off the record are not -- -- with no attribution in the journal today saying they were disappointed with his inability.
To offer concise and simple answers despite hours of practice nevertheless is the danger now.
That Mitt Romney.
Thinks that the president's gonna perform like this next go -- because again 84 Ronald Reagan Mondale and we know how that ended.
-- president Obama's ally Israel today saying -- -- he's a liar and he hasn't used the L word.
But the people around -- have they -- -- -- -- and they're being clear on this so if President Obama is gonna go on the -- and say what Mitt -- saying is untrue and he's -- -- -- -- label he -- the basement Romney in another debate and that creates an interesting dynamic because president with.
When that run he's very good opportunities that Mr.
President I said you spent five trillion dollars -- -- jobs in the -- I said that you are wrong about my tax -- I am not cutting raising taxes -- middle class here -- facts are you prepared to call me a liar right now that they.
Very interesting dynamic he can't walk away from yet hit the the -- -- on the trail with another debate coming up we'll -- -- Acts are the about a campaign -- after Romney.
As she does he kind of right wing and went after units eighties and -- and Tea Party and this is how he did perform during the primaries and everything else.
And now as you say they're gonna go after the -- this of this comments and say to go back to the old argument that your quote unquote flip -- for now you weren't a big Mitt Romney fan and haven't been.
For years but was this the real Mitt Romney because the other night the more moderate the woman moved to the -- the won the Mae does.
It's Centre right arguments because of it is then it could be an effective on the next couple debate to -- being himself.
I hate this notion of people that say that president that Mitt Romney is transformed into something that's.
That assumes -- he ever was something from which to transform.
There is no Mitt Romney that media is the only of the idea that they have -- is the flop that's who Mitt Romney is and that's a short term political will tool I obviously don't like it -- -- -- -- in the debate.
He noted she really did he tried not to say anything that had any tinge of ideology drugs so focused very much on -- got a problem solving.
You know executive guy and whatever agenda towards the print why your principles would work for example.
Why lowering tax rates and closing deductions actually creates growth which is kind of an ideological argument he would make that he was very focused on the numbers I don't know how that's going to play -- say it is.
Bottled water around defending the spending on big bird and PR.
-- the middle of a fiscal crisis sixteen trillion dollars -- that you're telling me that you can't cut Sesame Street.
Then you can cut anything to what what is less valuable that attacked let's.
-- we really -- -- I don't value -- body does not -- television.
Right into the matter and our numbers -- numbers don't boy this is.
It's -- -- your ideas but.
It's or other so why not -- -- -- -- like you when you you and your -- it and that we -- is on the way to -- about -- -- credit card -- like -- as he -- But I've got to go to the nail salon I'm gonna do about it is -- let -- And a millionaire or not and that and in the grand scheme of things -- aren't ready are pretty pricey in our overall how small but I read no extra cup of Starbucks drip coffee -- not.
