LISA CARROLL, CO-HOST: You know, I was on a campaign trail talking about how we had the economy back up again, the economy going in the right direction.
And then you had the Republican convention.
I mean, there’s nothing quite like a convention.
It was like a rally.
You had the governor’s wife, Mitt Romney, and his daughter, Ann.
And the first thing that came out of that convention was, we’re going to get the economy working again, and we’re doing that by reforming entitlement programs.
And that was just what was on our minds.
So, I just felt like, well, what’s the wrong thing to do?
I mean the president, the Republican party and the GOP congress, were going to have a good night, because I think they have a lot of credibility with the base.
But then, we were on a different track.
And, you know, we have to go back to the basics of how we got there, because it was a little bit of a mistake.
The President said it was, you can do the right thing.
It wasn’t the right choice.
It didn’t have the right effect.
And you know what?
We’re on the path to a very different kind of recovery.
And I’m so proud to say that, you’ve got my endorsement.
