Full-court press from the Republican ticket this morning, with Romney on “Meet the Press” for his first non-Fox Sunday chat of the campaign and Ryan hitting both ABC and CBS, presumably to answer Bill Clinton’s speech at length. I wonder if that’s all been planned for weeks or if the mounting evidence of a bounce for O forced Team Mitt to play defense more aggressively than they anticipated.
If you’re not up for that, tune into “Fox News Sunday” for a deep-dive on the glories of Obamanomics with Glenn Hubbard and Austan Goolsbee. The line-up via WaPo:
NBC’s Meet the Press: Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney; San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro; Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal; E.J. Dionne, Brookings Institution and Washington Post; former Secretary of Education Bill Bennett; Chuck Todd, NBC
