We have been talking all morning on Bonnie and company about the enthusiasm -- -- The pictures from last night show Romney -- -- and present -- -- -- probably doesn't happen at least not last night.
Joining us now is Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan to -- -- always extend a great welcome thank you welcome.
Good morning Stuart great to be here all day long we've been saying that the enthusiasm factor.
Could shift the election.
And I've been saying it seems that president governor Romney.
Has a great deal of enthusiasm a surge of enthusiasm and support -- him.
I'd say it really could swing the election and you -- I think it could I think it's very important.
You see that crowds.
That are out there for him I mean I think it's fair to say that some of president Obama's people.
Are fired up but his.
He is big gatherings his rallies are taking place in some big venues that they can't quite -- Romney is pulling them out 30000 here 28000.
-- there's a lot of passion going on what I think we are witnessing.
Is something that may be has been going on for the past few weeks.
And it is the Republican base.
Coming together in all its constituent.
Parts something it didn't quite manage to do I think over the spring and summer.
And I think it's coming together.
And I think it will come out and vote.
And I I do think that -- -- AS significant impact so someone seeing Romney rising here.
Well now you said on you'll blog I think you you wrote on your blog yesterday I'm gonna quote directly from quote I think it's Romney.
I think -- stealing in like a thief with -- good tools while everyone is looking at the polls in the storm -- slipping into the presidency.
He's quietly rising and he's been rising for a while.
That's very interesting Peggy I'm not asking you to say yeah you think Romney is gonna win but actual sounds like it on your blog.
Will -- you know what a certain point like -- day before the election you sit around with your friends and everybody says so what do you think's gonna happen.
I was doing a news -- Sunday morning and before we -- time.
A bunch of us were together -- I said so what's gonna happen and one person said just blurted out.
I think Obama and I said she I think Romney and we had a great conversation about it so.
So look that's what I think is coming down the -- May I just ask back in 08 will you not a big Obama's support to.
No but I was very sympathetic to him I did not damn him as as many people did I felt I gave him.
Hearing and was and is.
Would be reasonable.
You were the one who said Obama made things worse.
Is -- do you mean in the past few years I think you said it about a year ago was -- 206 months ago.
I remember that headline in the Wall Street Journal Obama -- yeah.
A -- as the -- who made things worse.
-- -- What I was but what I was doing in a column is about eighteen months ago.
Was talking to the Republican Party and saying look at the indices.
Look at the economic factors here look at the political factors as they played out in Washington.
I think the Republican argument this year is quote.
He made it worse yes that was the quote I'm sorry I should -- got it exactly right and it was your quote you -- Peggy -- always a pleasure thank you so much for joining us.
