president goes through this. bill clinton did it. george bush. the idea is to take a deep dive into one's own policies and also look at your opponent's policies and make sure that you're deeply well read into all the the specifics. and so, nobody can be well versed in everything that you've done. i certainly don't remember what i did last year and i bet you don't either. every moment of it, so that's part of the goal. another part of it is to come up with those quote zingers or moments, as much they say they're thot doing it, you know they did it. that's part of it. to come armed with some ready lines to throw out when you need them. >> i'm not even sure i know what i did last week, so i get it. thanks so much. jessica yellin. we want to go back now to anderson cooper a anderson cooper in the cnn election center. >> candy, i can't remember what i did yesterday. let's talk about who has the edge going into tonight. >> anderson, a year ago, you would have said romney had the edge. obama has to defend his lousy jobs record. he's running better campaign, so he comes in with an advantage. he's

of those years should you win this election. what is the biggest difference between you and george w. bush and how do you differentiate yourself from george w. bush? >> thank you and i appreciate that question. i just want to make sure that, i think i was supposed to get that last answer, but i want to point out that -- >> i don't think so, candy. >> i want to make sure that our time keepers are working. the last part is for the two of you to talk to each other and it's not quite as ordered. use this two minutes any way you would like to, the skwe on the floor. >> i don't blik that bureaucrats in washington should tell someone whether they can use contraceptives or not and i don't believe whether employers should tell someone if they can have contraceptives or not. the president's statement of my policy is completely and totally wrong. >> governor, that's not true. >> let me come back and answer your question. president bush and i are different people and these are different times and that's why my five-point plan is so different than what we would have done. for instance, with can n

the bill clinton/the george h.w. bush, and the good thing for clinton was he got up out of his chair and looked the woman in the eye and just, you know, sort of telegraphed the i feel your pain business. the problem for president bush was he looked at his watch. >> yeah. >> but, you know, this debate will be entirely different, structured in an entire different way. >> but how is it -- you are the only human being on planet earth that thinks donald trump doesn't need to do anything different in the debate. >> no, there's two of us. there's two of us. >> let trump be trump. don't stop him. jeffrey and kayleigh, donald, don't listen. be your bullying, obnoxious shelf. >> i want to go fact checking. senator kaine talked about the bush tax cuts and said they were responsible for the greatest recession or whatever since the great depression. it was not the bush tax cuts. it was fannie mae and freddie mac. >> oh. >> and decades of democratic policy that begin with president clinton's housing policy in the 1990s. >> and chester a. arthur too but can we get back to the debate? there was a re

punch where you are strong. barack obama has been much like george bush in many aspects and it's where independents and republicans find him more acceptable. bob gates was george bush's secretary. >> he has stature. >> other interpretation. >> make yourself safe. paw. >> you don't have what you need for beliefs. >> i was trying to explain strategy. >> he has a point. the democrats and president obama have a legitimate argument and a guy who came into the debates is not the candidate we saw in the primaries. we go back to the etcha sketch. >> it may. >> i got a score card. >> where republicans and president obama's administration have more agreement than on anything else like social issues. >> why all the attacks? >> my question is this is three debates and romney has systematically moved to the center and this one was startling. the surge in afghanistan worked. he is the peace candidate and wants to fund civil society. obama just thinks he can shoot his way against al qaeda. i am wondering is there anything in the republican base or are they determined to beat obama? i am wonderi

do you say that? that's not true. george wush, what are you talking about. >> there is an art to it. and i do think vice president george herbert walker dush did just right. he was going to be kinder and gentler than president reagan. -- >> kinder and gentler than whom? >> exactly. and this is a little bit of a departure. with trump trying to make the case with mike pence tonight is that trump is so eccentric. such a lightning rod. last night in a debate in new hampshire where -- running against the governor. in the debate she was asked is donald trump a role model for your children? she said of course. and then this morning put out a press release no i misspoke, he's not a role model. what is mike pence going to say? is donald trump a role model for your children? >> yes, of course. >> yes. >> that's not going to get him a lot of votes. >> i don't to hurt your case but is bill clinton? >> absolutely. >> point made. >> no doubt you are right there is a mood for change in the country. it is not unusual after two terms of a president. we've been through hell as a country in the beginn

george bush, 5.4%. and then look at barack obama down here. 8.1%. a whopping number for any president to carry into a re-election campaign. barack obama made history when he got elected the first time. if he gets re-elected, that will also be historic, because no president has done it since franklin roosevelt in the fading days of the great depression. >> a new jobs report coming out friday morning for the month of september. we'll see what those numbers are, what impact it winds up having. anderson, back to you. >> thank you, wolf. and the hologram, tom foreman. david, to your point, presidents in the past who had a bad first debate performance came back strong, how do they retool? do they practice more? >> the most famous case, president reagan in 1984, lost the first debate, people thought he was senile, that he didn't care, he came back. nobody is more competitive than president obama. he will be back in the room, saying, guys, we're not doing this again. >> the question, what happens. and the next is a town hall. different format. >> ready to release results. a poll, register vot

important issues, whether or not we build the middle class from the out or we do as george w. bush and paul ryan wanted to do and this trickle down notion or on medicare and how we make sure that we have the medicare we have and will for the future. >> no concern on the style point? >> not at all. my father was in command of that station, command of the facts, and gave the american people a very clear vision. paul ryan opened a very interesting area of discussion about whether he and governor romney want to commit additional forces to afghanistan. you can't talk about that loosely like he did tonight. >> thank you. we wish you and your family well. thank you for talking. >> thank you. >> an exciting night in the spin room. both sides claiming victory for their team. it seems from this vantage that it's something of a draw at this point, but we'll see in the coming days, what the polls though. >> thank you, jessica, for that. we'll see what our focus group of undecided voters on the critically important battleground state of virginia has to say about who won, who lost. and we're getting

clinton, back obama, george w. bush position in favor of comprehensive immigration reform and not a hard-line position. so it is going to be interesting to watch him try to walk that line, keeping his base there in favor of this hard-line position while also reaching out. and this is something we've been talk about for weeks now. we've not seen since the first debate donald trump try to expand eoened his base. he's tried to rally his base. say things his base finds titillating and musing, suggesting that hillary clinton was on drugs. obviously there is no evidence she was on any performance enhancing drugs at the last debate. but saying things like. that the crowd cheers, everyone laughs. it turns the moderate votes, the swing votes off significantly. does he have what it takes to reach out to those voters to expand from the 39, 40% of the vote who are like him right knew? i don't know. we'll see. >> we'll see how substantive this debate tonight behind us is going to be. anderson back to you. >> minutes away from the start of the debate. no doubt members of the commission, president

appear kwanss by ringo starr. right there alicia keys, george clooney pops up. kofi annan, and many, many more. he is here with us live you call yourself a war child, and you are, quite literally. born in sudan during the country's brutal civil war. became a child soldier when you were just 8 years old. describe this to us. that's incredible for most people listening? >> i call myself war child because all i saw was war, seeing people die and then the war reaching the core of my family and then i became a child soldier when we were promised we were going to go to school, so we walked for hundreds of miles, and that's how i call myself a war child. >> it's extraordinary. one very chilling part of your story, you were tempted to apparently eat your best friend. how did that situation even arise? >> it happened when we plan an escape, and only a few of us survived in that journey, and so we ran out of food, so we were depending on snals, vultures, and anything we could find, so bh we ran out of food completely so, my friend was dying, and my senses changed. that's when i was tempted to eat m

are such -- i'm sorry to hit this point again, george herbert walker bush and mitt romney got the same percentage of the white vote. 59%, what earned bush 136 electoral votes got mitt romney only 56. and there is the changing demographic of the country and that's why the missed opportunity was with the muslim woman and the african american man at the end. that was magnanimous. >> where he's doing poorly, he needs to improve significantly, has to do with college educated white voters. he's even with college educated white men. >> health care and their families. >> there was a poll out today in your home state and your home state that had him leading among college educated voters, white voters by 20 points. this is a cohert that romney carried by 14% in 2012. that's a stunning -- >> tolerance, right? >> they think he's a bigot. >> right. that's why you hear hillary clinton, all of her ads, are about donald trump and what he said and those words, whether it's about women, whether it's about the birther controversy, those things turn off college-educated white voters. he can't undo th

presidency but george h.w. bush never quite recovered there. we all remember this back in 2000, the year of the recount. al gore came in as the sitting vice president leading in the rate. the first debate, this was the eye rolls and the sighs, the split roll we'll be watching tonight. george w. push took the lead in that race and kept the lead. and in 2012, president obama was a favored. he came in with a big healthy lead, but remember four years ago that first debate? this guy didn't seem like he wanted to be there. he didn't show up, he was distrrd. governor romney was pretty animated. it made the race competitive. conservatives thought they were going to win. in the end president obama went on to a convincing victory. but his disappointing performance in that first debate did shakes things up. so a little bit of history in the past as we look forward to a big one tonight. >> no doubt about that. we are closing in on debate time, some 39 minutes away. let's talk to some of our panelists. jeffrey lord, i mean, is, you know, briana was talking about some concern among some of trump 's suppo

saw firsthand how a president up for re-election can come back. in 2004, he bested president george w. bush in their first tangel. bush looked annoyed and dismissive. when they met at their town hall style debate, bush poked fun at himself. >> that answer almost made me want to scowl. >> reporter: and eventually won re-election. in 1984, even the great communicator, ronald reagan, bombed his first debate against walter mondale. he seemed confused. observers wondered if he was too old. round two, reagan dominated with this memorable line. >> i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. [ laughter ] >> reporter: so how is president obama prepared to be more assertive? i asked an aide if perhaps john kerry hadn't been a little more aggressive, gotten in the president's face during debate prep. i was told yes, he did, but he had also done that in debate prep ahead of the denver debate. the difference, an aide told me, president obama is much more aware this time of how he is perceived by viewers who are watching on television. anderson? >> brianna

election? he actually retracted his concession to george w. bush. >> that's an extraordinary experience. >> we have extraordinary experiences. you have to listen to everything he said. in fairness, he is talking about a corrupt system. many americans agree with that. he's talking about a system where people feel like insiders, like hillary clinton, get all the benefits on top of the fact many in the media collude with them. 96% of the donations from working journalists went to hillary clinton. >> i want to put a button on this. >> i heard a lot. >> what you just said to me is that he will accept. what you're telling me is that on election night if he is sort of waffling, you as his campaign manager will say, mr. trump, no matter what it is -- obviously it won't be a big deal if he wins. but if he doesn't, you will say mr. trump, this is what is going to happen and you're going to accept these results. >> absent of widespread abuse and regularities, yes. but i also think he will be president. i will see you there in two weeks. >> back to you, anderson. >> dana, thanks very muc

got to adapt to that. we all remember the bill clinton, george h.w. bush debate. he got out of his chair and sort of telegraphed the, i feel your pain business and the problem for president bush was he looked at his watch. but this -- this debate will be entirely different and structured entirely in a different way. >> you are the only human being on planet earth who thinks donald trump doesn't need to do anything different in the debate. >> no, there's two of us. there's two of us. >> yes, let trump be trump. don't -- top this, van, stop. listen to jeffrey and kailey. be your bullying obnoxiousous self. >> senator kaine talked about the bush tax cuts and said they were responsible for the greatest recession since the great depression. it was not the bush tax cuts. it was fannie mae and freddie mac and decades of democratic policy that began with president clint clinton's housing policy in the 1990s. and chester a. arthur, too. but can we get back to the debate? it was a remarkable moment when tim kaine called him a small, weak bully -- wait, no, that was mike pence. i've never see

president, whether it was bill clinton versus george h.w. bush. when the incouple beumbent does the challenger does well, they get a boost in the immediate days ahead. >> the challenge for governor romney. it will be interesting to see how the voters score this one. the president is personally popular, even among undecided voters, soft obama supporter who's say i'm not sure about the economy, auto not sure he is a good economic leader. governor romney has to make the case against a man that say popular leader, and to make the case, the point he wanted to make, ahe's a nice guy, hasn't been able to create a job. is governor romney as specific about how he would create them? that's an open question. without a doubt. you look at the reaction left and right. just about everyone is scoring romney the president. >> the president clearly on the defensive. let's talk about swing states. we've seen a tightening in florida and in virginia. not necessarily so much in ohio, but the magic number is 270. walk us through the next 4 1/2 weeks or so. >> let me close the loops so i don't confuse anyb

be right back. >>> in 1994 when george bush sr. was in a debateferaro, he appeared to be patronizing toward her. >> let me help you with the difference between iran and the embassy in lebanon. >> and she answered right on the button. >> let me just say first of all that i almost recent your patronizing attitude that you have to teach me about foreign policy. >> that moment, i think, solid fie e fieded the idea that a woman had the right to be there as a vice presidential candidate. all energy development comes with some risk, but proven technologies allow natural gas producers to supply affordable, cleaner energy, while protecting our environment. across america, these technologies protect air - by monitoring air quality and reducing emissions... ...protect water - through conservation and self-contained recycling systems... ... and protect land - by reducing our footprint and respecting wildlife. america's natural gas... domestic, abundant, clean energy to power our lives... that's smarter power today. i'm watching natalie's ballet recital and i'm pulling photos right from the video

candidate come out ahead? >> the 2004 campaign beat john kerry. john kerry beat george bush. it doesn't change their voting behavior. what you have to ask after this debate, given the first debate, using baseball analogy. mitt romney scored five runs in the first three innings. the president scored three runs. it doesn't stop the president's slide, it's just slowed it. >> one poll, it did oversample for republicans, and other samples out there, all of them show that voters thought president obama won tonight. what you will see, is the democratic base shoring up, democratic leaning independents going home and obama start to move the other direction, his numbers start to go up. >> i'm not sure about that. forgive me. i'm a red sox fan, my team not even in play. yankees fans know tigers won tonight. but they won't vote for the tigers, they will still root the yankees. who you vote for is a different question. i think alex is right, the president had the baton in this race, and the first debate, he allowed mitt romney to be his equal, be an incredible candidate for president romney made a s

done already. two things came to my mind with george w. bush. humor and prayer. you want to get them in a light frame of mind going in here. he would make irreverent jokes, cracking people up around him. it showed he was loose. but he would also stop and pray. i have a feeling mitt romney's going to do this same thing. who knows, maybe president obama will, too. it was always an important moment for president bush. he will do it when nobody was around. that's how he would collect himself. >> mitt romney's having the first words, this was all a coin toss. he's having the first word and the last word. how important is the closing argument? they get two minutes. >> sounds like romney's prayers have been answered already in one way getting to begin the debate and close it. ronald reagan won the presidency with his closing statement in the 1980 october debate. are you better off now than you were 12 years before. >> the fact that mitt romney gets the final close, it's helpful. you want to go in to the off-season on your notes. and hopefully on a win. >> jessica yellin, getting last-m

, asked for a resolution on his own terms as his george w. bush. and when the election results were certified, he told his party and base to stand down and accept this. even though a lot of us were very, very upset. what you just got now was the nominee of a major party for the first time in our history signaling to the american people that he has so little faith in our institutions and so little faith in our people and so little faith in our courts and so little faith in the republican governors, the republican secretaries of state across this country that he will not stand in front of his own country, in front of his own nation and say that he respects the process and the outcome. that is an outrage. the appalling lack of patriotism from this man. >> let him finish. >> the appalling lack of patriotism of this man to say this and praise putin and asaad more than he's praised any american president. he doesn't luke about george washington, ronald reagan the way he talks about putin and asaad. he has an appalling lack of patriotism. >> you're asking him to accept something that hasn'

this constantly, is george w. bush made the agreement about when american troops would leave iraq. not barack obama. and the only way that american troops could have stayed in iraq is to get an agreement from the then iraqi government that would have protected our troops. and the iraqi government would not give that. but let's talk about the question you asked, lester. the question you asked is what do we do here in the united states? that's the most important part of this? how do we prevent attacks? how do we protect our people? and i think we have got to have an intelligence surge where we are looking for every scrap of information. i was so proud of law enforcement in new york, in minnesota, in new jersey you know, they responded so quickly, so professionally to the attacks that occurred by rahami and they brought him down. and we may find out more information because he is still alive, which may prove to be an intelligence benefit. so we've got to do everything we can to vacuum up intelligence from europe, from the middle east. that means we've got to work more closely with ou
