Take a lot all of this you know Mort do you think about it.
Immediately ease the governor got very comfortable that -- governor Romney.
When he could equate the economy are massive dead without it carols on national security.
-- amateurish readers why did -- wait thirty minutes to do that.
Well look -- -- place I've reviewed -- expressed some concern that the governor wasn't shall we think toughen up and sharp enough in going after.
The president I actually think that we want -- up and I solid enough that sort of think yeah I thought that was the wife policy because.
Frankly there -- -- -- -- that is very important to him and that's the female vote and I think they would not have depreciated vis being that aggressive than that sharp.
With the president that operated deal -- and I think this with a very effective way.
Have -- coming across as very presidential very authoritative.
Very calm very cool and that seems to me with exactly the right image for him to prevent.
So this is all part of -- strategy this was an accident all our -- flat footed this was part of a strategy.
Not to engage -- get too aggressive.
It almost supplies sitting on a lead.
Yeah -- but also look I think -- and -- in the conversation about foreign policy.
You don't wanna have a kind of sharp -- it seems to me against the president of the United States it's gonna -- -- number of people.
And I think he happened it just right he really was able to present himself as being authoritative knowledgeable.
Very very very -- -- on foreign policy.
In the fact he with presidential and I think it's gonna serve him well when we see the results of these debates in terms of public opinion polls over the next couple week.
When governor Romney did pound.
-- of a group used on about how.
This president has abandoned its real and he was making it in Boca Raton Florida -- course.
Jewish voters very big here very influential here.

He's got a very very good shall we think political wedge on that community because there is a strong feeling that Obama's views of Israel are really quite.
Different from -- almost every previous president we have.
And they're good morning right call here I think it was it a sort of more but I -- -- -- -- to get -- and airlifted.
Close to seven -- ten -- -- voters.
Support the president.
Well that's entirely possible you know not everybody votes on that issue if they're Jewish run I think one of the things that.
You know we do have to understand that the Jewish community by and large been very liberal community.
In terms of its shall we think social attitudes on many -- -- so I think that if the predominant thing we'll see what happens in terms of the final the final vote.
But I think that I'm not surprised about that.
Do you think those numbers will go down a little bit -- -- and -- -- down quite is that it's and you do when you get through to the country at large here.
-- -- -- by the way I had to be remiss Newsweek following US news.
Your -- on that.
I'm I'm not surprised actually I think virtually every print publication in the country is in real trouble.
Because advertising which was that core the business model has deserted print.
US news however.
Which and defense stopped its print publications except for -- -- -- a couple of years ago has the unique advantage because we have a huge.
Online audience and that that magazine you do to my amazing may -- is now in the black again.
So I'm very -- and I did this years ago level way way ahead sort of they could be playing catch up I I -- way ahead I would just in the -- in many ways.
We -- that the weakest position and so we really have to come up with a different their business model and we sold all of our subscriptions two years ago.
And we have this huge audience based primarily on these amongst other things he's we're ranking can reviews you know the best colleges in the best hospitals.
They they work much better online than they do in the magazine because you can get 12100 universities instead of sixty or seventy in the magazine and makes a huge difference in terms of the audience you attract in the advertising -- attract.
