people, the whole campaigning where we are as a country, where we need to go. how to rebuild the economy and make the middle class secure. >> harris: fox report, how the nominees are preparing right now. and they make the decisions that affect americans now and for generations to come. the nine supreme court justices headed back to the bench less than 24 hours from now, to settle some of the most divisive issues in our country. in minutes, what's at shake. also, riding along on the final leg of a cross country journey to honor our fallen heroes and the families they left behind. celebrate, mission complete. ♪ we begin tonight with what could very well be a defining moment of the 2012 presidential election. the first the debate between the men who want a lead america three days away. governor romney hunkered down
in washington on final debate preparation and president obama on the campaign trail in the swing state of nevada. for now, the strong sense of optimism from team romney. vice-presidential nominee, congressman paul ryan in an interesting brushed aside polls showing president obama leading in several key state telling anchor chris wallace, governor romney will win come november. and one of his most outspoken supporters, new jersey governor chris christie, also making a bold prediction that governor romney will do very well and his performance could change the whole race. here is governor christy from earlier today. >> he's going to come in wednesday night and have his vision for america and he's to contrast what his view is and the president's record is and the president's view for the future and the race will be turned upside down thursday morning. >> harris: we'll kick off our coverage with campaign carl
cameron. and republicans are trying to draw a distinction betweening mr. obama and the republicans leading up to wednesday night. >> they have and mitt romney has been doing his level best to kind of lowering expectation. the enthusiasm from chris christie and paul ryan may be run counter to the candidate's desire and lower the bar and make it easier for him to appear to overachieve. the romney campaign recognizes the polls haven't been going their way and talked a long time the debates will be an important moment. and paul ryan was essentially trying to set the stage for mitt romney by framing the issues as the romney-ryan ticket sees them, almost five weeks away. >> we can either have a dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or a stagnant economy that fosssters dependency. we can stick with the failed policies of the last four years, or a brighter future. stagnation versus growth.
dependency versus opportunity and upward mobility. that's a classic choice, a clear difference that we're offering. >> romney returns to boston for the weekend and this morning, church and debate prep and tomorrow off to denver getting ready for the face-off on wednesday night, harris. >> harris: it's interesting how they prepare, the practice sessions. do we know how governor romney's practice sessions are going? >> he spent quite a bit of time doing it, a lot of book research, just studying, a great deal with the campaign teamworking ways to phrase questions as suscinctly and the mock debates with rob portman, playing the role of president obama, researched his debate performance against john mccain and some others, and doing his level best to get under romney's skin and romney's just about what a tough debater portman is, on a number of cases, it's been portman's responsibility to try to irritate mitt romney or
trip him up on the issues and he's played an important role on this and this debate is six segments, 15 minutes long east and the first three are about the economy and the fourth is obama care and health care reform. the fourth is on governoring and the 5th is role of government. all of these things will dominate the discussion, but romney is planning after this coming debate on wednesday, before the policy speech on the week before the vice-president debates, the attempts by the romney ryan campaign, to go beyond the economy and try to do the whole campaign contrast in the last four years. >> an exciting time for all the americans who said now, carl, they'll tune in more, leading up to the debate. thank you, campaign carl, good to see you. moving on now to president obama and his visit in the swing state of nevada tonight. the president arrives in las vegas a short time ago and we're told the president will remain in nevada before wednesday preparing for the debate. on this sunday, some of the president's advisors making rounds on talk shows, and the
white house advisor plouffe seeming to look at the chances for the debate giving romney the upper hand. >> now, challengers tend to do really well on debates and that's the history. and we believed all along that governor romney had potentially more out of the debate than we do. >> harris: correspondent ed henry is travelling with the president and playing the expectations game. >> oh, big time, they're trying to play that expectations game and got senator john kerry playing the role of mitt romney, and familiar with his record pack in massachusetts and familiar with this kind of podium and stage and the obama campaign is trying to stay woe is the president hasn't debated in four years, since he went toe to toe, a day job and commander-in-chief and only a few practice sessions not enough time like mitt romney has had to practice and then as you mentioned david plouffe who is on some of the sunday talk shows today.
trying to lift expectations on the other side by mitt romney, saying he got an awful lot of practice back in that long drawn out republican primary, take a listen. >> listen, he's prepared more than any candidate i think maybe in history. certainly in recent memory. we believe that governor romney has been a good debater in the past, he's very prepared and the clever zingers and lines in hess pocket and we understand that he'll probably have a good night. >> and the obama camp feels good after what chris christie did said it's going to be a game change and extraordinary performance by mitt romney, the obama camp thinks that plays right into the expectations and now it's raising them very high for mitt romney to have to shake it up in these debates, harris. >> harris: as we know from carl cameron that mr. romney has been at the campaign headquarters in boston preparing. why is the president in nevada? >> well, it's a battle ground state as you've noted earlier and i remember covering john kerry in 2004. a debate against the president, then president bush
in arizona and did his debate prep in new mexico, a media attention in the battle ground state and he's trying to do that president obama in nevada and the foreclosure crisis and the unemployment rate double digits and the president knows economic challenges here and hoping he'll get a little play for his message and his plans and rally and it's going to start a few moments behind me with someone with early voting starting in nevada in a couple of weeks and they feel good in the obama camp. nevada even though it's hard hit, the polls show the race very close and they think mitt romney should be far ahead with the economic message and people are hurting here. they think it's a sign that romney is not breaking through and the president is doing pretty well in nevada. >> harris: you bring up a good point. this first debate focusing on domestic policy and you talk about those tough economic issues on the ground, in nevada where you are now, it would be interesting to see just how well watched the first debate will be by those people there, thank you so much, ed henry.

fired off a letter to intel chief james clapper, calling the situation bizarre and demanding answers and says in part, 18 days ago, the administration judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded. and what has changed in libya in such a short time. is that even fbi agents and our personnel entered the city. and the u.n. ambassador susan rice who has said a few days after the attack, that it appeared to be a spontaneous uprising and the long video. >> and we have reports now that intelligence people knew within 24 hours that this was a terrorist attack and yet, they sent her out, to say things that were absolutely false and continued to do so. and then, as mccain says the violence in lib rah clicks, with the story and al-qaeda diminished. >> for its part. the administration claims the situation in benghazi was so complex, they didn't know for sure that it was a terrorist
attack although now they're saying it is. and the obama campaign advisor turned the criticism back to mitt romney. and governor romney leaked that on the libya issue on the first day and was terribly mistake been what he said. and that's not what you want in a president of the united states. >> and democrats say now protecting american personnel going forward, harris. >> harris: you mentioned something i had not read the complexity of the issue around benghazi, the follow-up i would want to ask, well, could you just dumb is down and explain it? and steve centanni, thank you very much. >> you bet. >> harris: right now, tragedy in a place that cares for veterans and their families. police say gunman showed up at vfw ap started firing, but we're now just learning with the deadly shooting and happened again, the ultimate betrayal, a murderer in an afghan uniform turns the gun on his american counterparts. what's become a disturbing

change the game. >> it's possible. you have some columnists writing in this is the super bowl of politics and debates are because the political world and even folks who have been paying attention to politics start to listen and they watch, especially the first date. and standing the challengers standing alongside the president of the united states, confronting some things you've only seen confronted on commercials, that's an opportunity for the challenger to make a mark. >> however, in the big picket, can it change the dynamic completely? i don't know. you have to, you know, depending on races past, one debate doesn't really do it, and it's a series of debates, it's a series of things that happen after a debate. you heard governor chris christie on meet the press today, saying that thursday morning, there will be a different kind of race that develops after wednesday night's performance. and that's what republicans are hoping for, that they see
mitt romney-- that's much like the florida debates with mitt romney, that we saw after he lost in south carolina in the primaries and newt gingrich came out swinging, very on the office and making a stand. >> you know, bret, in recent days on your program, special report, we've seen the expectations game you've played out. if you're out in front of a candidate talking things out do you go high or low? >> both campaigns have been setting the bar extremely low for their own candidate. and boy, david plouffe is out there saying governor romney is essentially the best debater anywhere in multiple appearances today and saying that the president just hasn't had time, and he's been doing all of these other things and it's amazing to see the lengths the obama campaign has gone to to try to set expectations. but i think when you get to wednesday, all of that goes out the window. and it's all about the issues
if neither man has a major stumble, both sides are going to come out of it either way and say, their person won. and no matter what happens. but if there is not a major event, you'll go to the second debate, and wait to see what happens there. >> harris: you know, i want to get to the basics of wednesday night if we can for just a moment, and the focus on this first debate is in that policy. what are some of the questions that we might expect to hear? >> and jim letterer, the moderator to lay down a format on the economy in the first section. they have questions to start off the discussion, and then a discussion, free flowing, it's supposed to stay on the topic matter that they've agreed to, which is domestic issues. so, i don't expect any wavering off into foreign policy, libya or afghanistan, you don't know that that possibly could happen, but it's supposed to say pretty structured, but the discussion
is something new, so le herrer can press and there's a lot of free flow in those 15 minutes, so, a lot of things can happen in a short time. >> harris: with the time i have left with you. i want to focus on style and the moderated debates before, did a beautiful job in the g.o.p. primary i might ad. from your experience i'm hearing that the candidates should work in humor. humor can back fire, can't it? >> sure, if it's too staged, if it's hokey, it can come off as just not genuine. and all of these folks who are out there telling governor romney he needs to have a connection moment, there are many other folks on the conservative side who are saying, he needs to be pressing and on point and on big issues, so, you have all kinds of advice flowing for governor romney on this big event. i want to point out quickly, harris, that we're here, also, to do a show tomorrow night,
on special report, for arapahoe county one of the 30 swing counts we've identified throughout the country. arapahoe is important in colorado went background for president obama in 2008 and went for president bush in 2004 and 2000. we talked to a ton of people today. the really interesting things said what issues are motivating them. >> harris: yes, you put it arapahoe is almost quintessential swing county. and tune it here for fox news for the political debate and best analysis, you're seeing with bret there. live coverage wednesday night 8:55 answering corpsed by bret and megyn kelly and on special report. don't miss it. another programming note for you, this one for tonight. a fox news special, john stossel goes behind the scenes

>> hundreds of california inmates who were once sentenced as juveniles to life in prison without parole could one day go free under a new state law. democratic governor jerry brown signed that bill into law yesterday. now, judges can reconsider life sentences after the prisoners have served at least 15 years. courts could then reduce a no parole term to 25 years to life if the inmate shows signs of rehabilitation. governor brown's support for this law is at odds with law enforcement and victim's organizations. some 300 prisoners currently serving life term sentences in california for murders committed when they were under the age 18. so this affects a lot of people. and speaking of california,
