WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE NEXT DEBATE
Romney is a genuinely nice, courtious and humble person. I've never seen or heard him be mean spirited, rude or condescending. I don't expect a landslide win for Romney but I think he'll continue to show poise, confidence, passion and a plan to America out of this mess. And, like Regan he'll do it in a cheerful optimistic way that any independent minded person will be drawn to. Romney wins the next debate too but by a smaller margin.
I can tell you what to expect, after Obamas poor performance in debate 1 the DEMS will be ready. The town hall will be about 90% Democrats and when Obama is asked a question it will be about killing Bin Laden or how he saved GM or how did he lower unemployment so much. When Romney is asked a question it will be by a plant and they will need a line by line expalnation and number specific details on his policies.
Yep, I agree with theagonybho. Romney will have to prepared for hostile questions from libs posing as "undecided".
Obama has to be aggressive and be the voice of the middle class. Romney represents the 1% and hides his true intentions with slick salesmanship, making himself appear to be a Democrat, and making promises that there's no way he can deliver. It's amazing that the race is as close as it is, but there are far too many folks who are fooled by the Republicans talk about cutting taxes to 20% and somehow paying off $16 trillion in debt at the same time...NOT POSSIBLE. If you believe that, then Santa Claus' is getting you a new Ferrari this Christmas too. Obama has the best approach and follows Simpson-Boles to grow the economy for the long term. This election will come down to: Do you believe in Santa Claus? (the Republicans) OR Do you believe in hard work, share sacrifice, and getting our economy to grow jobs for the middle class and the long term (Democrats)? I'm too old to believe in Santa Claus.
What will Obama reply when asked why he lied to Congress, the U.N., America and the World about what happened in Benghazi?
ninetyniner, this election will come down to wether people actually believe the Government is santa claus, how much free stuff can we get having a small majority pay for it. Regarding jobs, i would love if some one asked Obama can you explain to the country how we had 44 months of unemployment over 8% and a month before the election it magically dropped 3 tenths of a percent.
I should also mention that Romney claims he can lower taxes to 20% for everyone, raise defense spending by $2 trillion, keep Medicare and Social Security the same without any changes, and be home in time to have dinner with the Easter Bunny. Once again, mathematically and physically not possible.
What to expect at the nest debate? Expect Obama to lose again, just not as badly as last time. Obama just does not have what it takes to go toe to toe with a much more intelligent, informed and above all, qualified opponent like Mitt Romney.
"And, like Regan he'll do it in a cheerful optimistic way that any independent minded person will be drawn to" .... there is nothing cheerful or optimistic in Romney's message. It's constant criticism and if he's going to do what he claims he's either going to explode the deficit or eliminate deductions for the middle class. And his Medicare/Medicaid plans will devastate seniors. Not to mention that his foreign policy will take us right back to confronting another ME war.
So they need Candy Crowley, another liberal political hack, to carry Obama's water for him. Expect softball questions about Obama's vacations, the weather, and nothing that could potentially make him look bad. He does that enough on his own.
