Thank you call -- back to the election now and the big day of course is coming in less than two weeks but we have the potential at least for big problems.
In Ohio now here's what's happening you have apparently more than 800000 people in the state who requested an absentee ballot but that haven't -- them back -- USA today at a big report -- at this morning so they show up these people may vote on the sixth of November they give them a provisional.
Ballot and that have to check that make sure they didn't vote twice.
-- these ballots were not even begin until at least a week after the election.
What happens Dan -- her he's the deputy editor of the Wall Street Journal's editorial page now -- potential disaster in the making.
That would save a lot of develop this I mean to consume meeting to vote early and vote often the -- -- -- right up -- now -- That could be a disaster that would be Florida all over ten which is to say if they were gonna say that they had to wait till November 21 -- finally.
Column all of these provisional ballots and the question was whether somebody had voted both absentee.
And shown up to vote.
You will have lawsuits -- you didn't -- like it's happening in new Yorker now when Alabama somewhere where we know there result has the Ohio which.
Pretty much could decide do you think the election is -- any scenario you've looked at realistically -- somebody -- without Ohio.
It's very hard to -- -- coming clearing clear that Ohio is the place so it's going to be very important it would it would be.
Very unfortunate that this happened I have to say -- it does raise the question of all of this early voting that's being done around the state right.
I mean there's something intuitively nonsensical it's nonsensical about the idea that you -- in a presidential election a week or two before the elections actually over.
So I think campaign and it gonna select -- that's being introduced in RO if you do that in our elections complexity always leads to problems like those.
But what's most speaking of Ohio though with Mitt Romney and to shift the subject to -- -- someone -- -- calls accident.
Mitt Romney saying currency manipulator China -- -- go it was clearly is -- is pointed out in recent days.
A direct appeal to -- Ohio but you say it's a mistake.
Yeah I mean I think -- he's backing himself into a box Mitt Romney's gonna be like the dog who caught the boss if you declare some occurrence a minute your ultimate manipulator on day one -- what does he do on day two.
In other words why would you.
In a down economy and this is -- another issue that isn't getting too much attention.
If the economy is as bad as people think Mitt Romney is going to have a huge job when he takes over the last thing he needs is any kind of trade problems with China because their economy is already going into decline as well least that's the growth has fallen off so -- it was pushed huge mistake I think but for.
Yes to win then that's obviously the way he's he's looking at -- China yet the auto bailout which I think I guess the president sees as a net positive for -- -- -- we bailed out.
You guys get a vote for me and Rami trying to deflect that so he goes to China and as you write the journal this morning.
The other big issue and -- to talk to a dobbs more about this coming up obviously Libya and then -- but -- and does that fade away or become a bigger bigger issue as we get closer.
Well I wrote about -- Ghazi and I said I think the president has finally develop the credibility gap on this which is something -- president does not want to have especially this close to electron.
-- president is held to a higher standard he's not just the challenger is not just another politician.
And Barack Obama's credibility.
On been -- has really eroded.
And I think this event is one of the factors that is causing his performance to go flat.
Or even down in some of these states like Florida -- -- -- Virginia or North Carolina where you do have a couple large military presence.
All right Dan thanks he was always stand and either but I talked -- great to see it.
