The president over and over again challenging Mitt Romney on the details of his economic plan so let's take a listen to a little bit of that and then we'll talk about it specially taxes and spending much that's.
Governor Romney for the very successful investor.
If somebody came to your governor -- -- plan -- said here I wanna spend.
Seven or eight trillion dollars.
And that we're gonna pay for but we can't tell you until maybe after the election how we're gonna do it.
You wouldn't have taken such a sketchy deal.
And neither should you the American people because.
The math doesn't add up.
The math doesn't add up Romney said of course it adds up but I'm sure governor Gary Herbert Republican.
You -- would agree with governor Romney but would you concede that the president scored some points there in the way that he framed his argument.
Last night as opposed to the first debate.
-- no question that pres Obama did better.
But it was kind of a low bar after the first debate and so he certainly exceeds expectations I think -- people getting points for that.
-- let's talk specifically.
About the economic plans that after -- where most about intercity and and what the president's talking about there is the governor's tax plan and I think he may have exaggerated in terms of the dollar value.
He -- -- by believed to eight trillion some of the analysis this morning that I've seen is more like seven trillion but the point about the loopholes and how it's gonna be paid for.
Still is there have governor Romney.
I don't believe -- answer the question yet in specifics there's.
-- -- to have this tax cut the lower the rates and here's -- I'm gonna pay for here's the loopholes I'm gonna take out -- a weakness do you think.
For the governor.
Well it's a challenge he's got because the political season he talks in terms of closing any loopholes specifically.
The Obama campaign is gonna jump -- -- both feet and and he's gonna be denigrated because of that his concept though is solid.
That is that we're gonna reduce the tax rates make it a more.
-- business friendly environment here in America throughout this country to empower the private sector to glove and create wealth.
Which is not a bad thing to do and thereby create jobs.
Again he's talked in terms or reducing the tax rates and he said very specifically.
The they're rich the wealthy people still pay the same.
Portion of the tax revenue they're -- today.
Will close loopholes which is in fact the tax increase.
And we all know that -- loopholes out there that ought to be in fact closed ethanol comes to mind why are we subsidizing.
And have a bigger carbon footprint that is raise the price of corn bread there's a number of those out there that ought to be looked at this force closing loopholes.
Protect the middle class.
By letting them to retain more of their money again empower small business throughout which is the backbone by the way of our of our.
And -- the economy and have them create more jobs.
And where Romney we're governor Romney was arguably the most effective west -- -- when he went through.
-- piece by piece where President Obama and his view has failed on some of those issues.
I know the -- campaign I just look at a before we came on the years already come out of 32 ad on that I think was thirty seconds.
This morning -- nobody else but governor Romney speaking from the debate last night that's affected say -- Here's where you failed XY and Z but the next debate they move on to foreign policy.
The last sides seem like President Obama.
Well it's certainly it is -- -- scored points on the -- discussion -- Obama you might have might have had the upper hand on that so next week.
Does -- hurt Romney that the topic that they're changing the topic away from a potential weakness for President Obama the economy.
To foreign policy.
I think there's a lot of concern about the current administration's foreign policy it doesn't seem to be working very well.
Again the apology tour that pres Obama went on an excusing.
And I apologize around the country we needed to walk softly but carry a big stick.
And again there's no question that he did as not come forward and -- a forthright manner.
-- when he sends out Susan Rice -- -- the United Nations.
And talks in terms of Willis is a YouTube this is a spontaneous.
Could uprising here -- of terror is because they've done more with -- not on the Libyan discussion.
Where I would say there when I watched the debate I think he -- But again but if you look at the the moderator she kept interjected herself into this thing in and there are.
You know for all the complaining writer shows us -- -- -- -- in the time.
She get a chance there now and because she put -- all it's been two weeks you know it didn't take -- which are right about that governor.
He -- jumped on that board but you think.
Again I think there's a lot of confusion on the stage of the time you go back and you watch the tape.
And again for the complain about battle who's watching the clock again pres Obama gets an additional three minutes yet four minutes more in the first debate.
You know I -- and I I just want some fairness and fair and balanced.
And and the debates.
I get I think it was a little awkward moment and I think.
Gov Romney could have done better but I I think all of -- are talking about today I think is an issue that ought to be vetted.
And I think we'll find at the current administration's foreign policy is not working very well.
Well they should have ninety -- -- the whole thing next week at the next debate is a whole.
The whole -- to be about foreign policy the governor Herbert -- are gonna run right now terrific to have beyond today thank you very much.
