7:38 am
need to do that right now? this is what you do when you are in deep trouble, mitt romney is in deep trouble. people talking about can some body else get into the race. polls yesterday before the debate showed, gingrich had swept into the lead in florida, which romney thought was going to be a fire wall. so you are seeing much sharper elbows, and you know, certainly a lot of democrats looking at that dedate, will be very happy, with it because it gives a lot of ammunition between newt gingrich or mitt romney, romney had to release tax returns because it was becoming such a huge liability in south carolina where every day he had another answer whether he was going to release them how many years he was going to release. he finally releases them this morning and it is sort of like christmas, in headquarters mitt romney, made $20 million in 2010 and paid 14% tax rate a lot lower than a lot of
7:39 am
americans pay. you will hear from the president tonight, state of the union address, not necessarily mention mitt romney but he will mention the fact that a lot of millionaires do pay a much lower tax rate, than a lot of middle class americans and it is going to be something that is correct it is going to be a campaign theme, no matter who emerges from this dog fight. >> i want to come back to the president in a moment first, with these two, are you surprised that of all the republican candidates that there were a couple weeks ago now it is down to four, gingrich is the guy who is surging and you know, may runaway with this thing? >> given that romney had huge advantage of the establishment largely behind him all the endorsement, money you know, a guy like rick santorum just doesn't have the money or organization yet and gingrich was able to capitalize on a couple key moments in the debates in south carolina where he got standing ovations taking
7:40 am
on the media, taking on the establishment, he tapped into the tea party angst out there in a way, mitt romney has never been able to do. yes, on one hand it is surprising on the other hand, there has been this deep well of some body we want some body other than romney, and gingrich you know, knows how to throw a punch. >> let's talk about the president you mention the state of the union address he has a lot it seems to me he has to accomplish this being the last state of the union before the election. can he put a positive face on what has gone on during last year, tough economy, yes, rebounding somewhat, and can he kind of kick off the campaign season for himself, in a way that will have people thinking oh, right, maybe we do want to give him another shot >> tough, tall order, he has to do this balancing act of saying look my policies have got us
7:41 am
back on the right track at the same time, you know chastising congress a little bit for not passing his job's plan in full, for obstructing bulk of his agenda last year and what we are expecting, what it seems like he is going to be coming out with, is fairly middle of the road moderate type agenda, couched in populous rhetoric the rhetoric of fairness he rolled out a few weeks ago. where he talks about look it is not fair that millionaires and billionaires are paying a 14% tax rate or in some cases, even lower, because of tax breaks, we need to focus on the middle class. things like manufacturing and job training and he will have -- it will be a campaign swing they are saying it is an official swing he is going to drum up policies through key states later this week, selling these policies trying to put republicans on the defensive.
7:42 am
he successfully did that end of last year with payroll tax cut. house republicans caved in the end. the white house, hopes they see more of that they are worried about re-election, poll ratings are terrible or that the president can run a harry trueman campaign and say hey, we need a new congress, and i am you know doing everything i can on my own, with executive orders and other things. >> we will have to see how it goes. it may play better to the american people than congress itself. we will have the state of the union tonight and analysis tomorrow morning. steven dennis with roll call thanks for joining us. alison back to you. 7:42 a.m., 43 degrees on a tuesday morning massive explosion involving the sun could have an effect here on earth we will explain that big headline coming up next. back in the headlines woman who returned her adopted son to russia, why she is just now,
