Hopefully the President gets more time than Romney to answer questions. He's just so dreamy when he speaks at me. :wub:

Moderator: "Mitt, how would you deal with America's major geopolitical foes?
Romney: "First, we must deal with Russia. Stalin and the Soviets could invade the United States any day now and we must be prepared."

This is going to be hilarious and sad. Romney looks like such an ass, more so the longer you let him speak. To make things worse, he's so completely unrelatable to the average voter.

Every chance Romney gets to open his mouth is an opportunity for him to kersplode.

I wait with bated breath :D

I think Obama should make it a point to piss Romney off, but not attack him too much. For the President to attack Romney increases Romney's stature, and Romney can play off that to elevate himself (see Reagan v. Carter). At the same time Romney seems easily agitated, becomes even more stiff when so, and it brings out his worst qualities as a politician.

I personally think its going to be yet another boring debate where Romney is afraid to call Obama out on the facts and Obama will talk about what he plans to do and not what he's done.

I still think these things should be boxing matches not debates.

“Reagan was a non-establishment figure who came from a lower middle class background,” he said. “He had been a Democrat. He had great empathy for working people because he had been one. Mitt Romney, the only working people he knows are his servants.”

“I knew Ronald Reagan,” Stone added. “Ronald Reagan was a friend of mine. And Mitt Romney is no Ronald Reagan.”

Unless Romney makes a huge gaffe (a la the one Perry made when he forgot the names of the federal agencies he wanted to eliminate), look for the pundits to call this a Romney win. Keeping the race close is good business for them. That's why I will be watching on PBS - I trust Shields and Brooks more to be honest than the people on the major news networks.
