While Democrats are setting up in Charlotte for tomorrow's events, Republicans are also gearing up for the Democratic National Convention this week. They're launching a counter message, attacking the president for his "failed promises and policies" since he took office.
Republican Committee Chairman Reince Preibus says they will be asking Americans now through the Election Day, are you better off today than you were four years ago?
"When it comes to jobs, the debt, the deficit, this president made everything worse," Priebus said. "And you know what, where I come from in Wis. like you, you gotta be someone of your word. And if you're not, usually you don't get rewarded with getting re-elected."
The former head of the Wis. Republican Party says the president promised to reduce unemployment below 8 percent. "It's been the worst unemployment record since the great depression."
President Obama's campaign officials stressed Monday that the country is better off. But this comes afters top aides avoided answering the question on Sunday.
The RNC has put together a rapid response team outside the convention site.
"We've got a full blown communications operation in Charlotte," Priebus said. "We're going to be bringing in speakers, surrogates, we're going to be doing press conferences everyday out of Charlotte, telling our story, telling the Mitt Romney story, reminding voters that President Obama didn't complete the mission. Everything's gotten worse. We want to make it better."
