If I was able to advise Gov Romney to say: I will uplift USA to the heavens and once again it will be shining city on the hill. I will vow not just promise, to turn the economy around by applying my business experience, comparing my accomplishment to the president's: Staples is alive and Solyndra is bankrupt, Sport Authority is successful and Sunpower owes America alot of money. In my administration, I would not operate in clouds of shroud and cover ups.

No advice. Just my best wishes to Mitt for a great showing in the debates and good luck moving on to election day. Our support is more important than any free advice, IMHO.

The back-room deals, payoffs, arm-twisting getting the healthcare bill passed, then the exemptions from it, contrasted by promises of unprecedented transparency and refusal to subject himself to rigorous questionning by what is left of real journalists.

How many people have dropped out of the workforce. Artificially low interest rates hurting retirees savings. Devalued dollar. Very low GDP. Too much golf. Why does his presidency cost the taxpayers 2.5 times as much as the royal family.

The list is endless!

But, most important, BO's own words that if he couldn't fix the economy he should be a one-termer should be mentioned over and over and over!

I would suggest medical marijuana. /just kidding... I would say avoid gimmicks - they can come off as very fake. It will be good to see Obama rattled, and Romney is such a gentleman, a split screen of the two of them could be priceless. I glanced again at the 2008 debates. Obama looked perturbed A LOT of the time (problem is, McCain didn’t look too good either, looked like a cranky old man) Romney needs to contrast himself, and many people will see them and get feel for Romney for the very first time. Romney looks like an upstanding man. Obama looks like an arrogant jerk, and this is from someone who tries very hard to be fair to Obama.

Agree with one person here. Stop “respecting” him. He HATES us, ACCEPT THAT. Then respond by not ‘respecting’ him...yes, tolerate him, but he hasn’t earned a bit of respect.

And if racism charges follow - just answer by saying that you’re no different than Reagan/Carter. You WILL NOT allow him to hide behind his skin color.

1) do not look at Obama - look at the camera
2) smile rarely, if at all
3) do not take bait of any sort from the venemous "moderator"
4) be deadly specific in cataloging the lies, the wrong policies, the corruption of Obama - no generalities please
5) do not compliment Obama in any way
6) act as if this is just you speaking with the American people
7) be deadly serious - removal of this cancer is deadly serious - act, think, speak as if our very nation depends on you performance (it just might)
8) DO NOT LET THE VENEMOUS MODERATOR USE YOU - YOU MUST USE HIM - TELL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHAT THEY NEED TO HEAR ABOUT THE STATE OF OUR REPUBLIC, AND HOW IT IS BEING DESTROYED - THEN TELL THEM HOW, WHY YOU WILL BEGIN TO MEND IT

The only advice I would give Mr. Romney is: stop being a wimp. Obama is not a "nice guy", he along with his policies are not "mislead" or "mistaken, "they are DELIBERATE. Stop playing around, take the gloves off and debate/attack Obama like you debated and attacked your conservative rivals during the primaries. Otherwise, give up and go home.

Obama is a CHICAGO Communist, Socialist, Marxist, Black-liberation theologist who loves terrorists, loves Muslims, hates America, hates Christians and Jews, hates capitalism and hates white people and every other race that is not part of his clique of "peeps". He is hell-bent upon destroying the country from within and that is exactly what he set out to do = "fundamental TRANSFORMATION of America" and has been successfully doing since elected.

Mitt R needs to recognize the fact that Obamessiah and ALL of his minions are not going to "play nice," or "play fair". If Romney wants to win he is going to have to get tough, be relentless in his attack against Obama and adopt the advice that Sean Connery gave to Eliot Ness in the movie "The Untouchables," otherwise he is going to lose. Because "that's the 'CHICAGO' way".

If Romney and his Romnieites don't believe me, all they need to do is look at the disastrous results of the race that McCain ran by treating Obama with kid gloves. McCain also said that Obama was a nice guy as well and look where that got him and us!

Attack, attack and attack some more. No Mr. Nice Guy. Obama has a horrible record. Call him on it. And don’t let up. I dislike this trite cliche, but if he shows some ‘fire in his belly,’ he can walk away with the debate and the election.

Bash the living sh_t out of 0dumb0. Show him no respect other than referring to him as President 0bama. That's it! Don't compliment him on ANYTHING! He is a RAT bastard, communist, socialist, marxist, muzlim pig, and treat him as such. He has bankrupted our country, destroyed our economy, racked up $6 trillion more in debt, destroyed jobs, added millions of people to welfare rolls, doubled the price of gasoline, has 18% total unemployment vs Bush's high unemployment mark of 6 1/2%, challenge him on his sealed grades & college applications, did he register as a foreign national, is he really a U.S. citizen, why was he not able to get a U.S. passport until he became a U.S. senator, why is his social security number registered in Conneticut, does he have any other social security numbers assigned to him, etc., etc. There Mitt, now you have lots of material to go after 0dumb0.

And to repeat one thing.... DON'T compliment the communist-marxist, muzzlim pig AT ALL!!!!

That would be my suggestion too. Mitt should hammer this point. It will get under Obama’s thin skin and could provoke a self-dstructive outburst. Obama has shown flashes of anger in the past; exploit that tendency.

Good advice.

Sad thing is, BHO already has the questions fed to him so he will not be going into the “debate” cold. He will know what is to be asked and rehearsed his scripted answers. . .too include every “ahhhh” and “ummmm.”

The MSM can’t risk BHO being caught out and not “knowing” something he should.

Good points - in other words don’t come across as a pansy. And definitely wipe that stupid looking smirk/smile off your face when your opponent is telling a whopper. You are deadly serious but “above it all” and able to tell it like it is in a calm, measured but forceful manner. I like the advice to avoid looking at Obama at all.

Watch the primary debates and your practice debates so you can practice internalizing and making the advice you’re getting happen. Lots and lots of practice on demeanor, expression, mannerisms.

They said Nixon won on the radio but lost on tv against Kennedy - that could happen to you if you are not able to effectively control your facial expressions i.e. smirks. Relax your face but maintain your calm intensity. Be in control. Be relaxed. Don’t blink too much. Slow your speech and modulate it downward. Practice not looking nervous and like a deer caught in the headlights, because that seems to happen to you quite often.

No $10,000 dollar bets, please.

Got all that? Good luck. Stay tuned for what you need to say.

Oh and one other thing - when McCain debated Obama, he allowed Obama to always get the last word in on every topic. YOU CANNOT ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN. Frequently Obama would use the first 10 or 15 seconds of the next question response to get the last word in. You have to make sure he doesn’t get away with it. Yes, that could be tricky and it would be important to use discretion.

It's really very simple.

Talk directly to us, the citizen/voters of America! Stay on focus that we are the deciders and those you must respect and appeal to.

1. Let us know that you understand America's founding principles--of Creator-endowed unalienable life, rights, liberty and laws to protect them.

2. Let us understand that you know you're not to be elected to impose your imperfect understanding of some ideology on us, but to respect our freedom of conscience, our religious belief and practice, and a free press.

3. Help us understand what that great moral philosopher, Adam Smith, explained--that it is free individuals, going about their own pursuits of happiness and self-interest that produces the great wealth of nations, and that simply "taking" from some and shifting it to others creates only political hacks who buy votes and make people slaves to a powerful government.

I would advise Romney at the first opportunity to turn, fix obama in his gaze and say

"Mr. president you have failed in your duty to the American people. You have been president for four years, yet you blame that economic mess out there on George Bush. Mr president, that is a lie. George Bush didn't build that mess. You built that. And you have no idea how to fix it or make it better. You have failed sir, and for the sake of the nation, you must go."

Ok this is really the last thing, at least for this thread.

If you practice the above and get it down, I think you will be better off. But if you haven’t practiced and internalized it definitely don’t try to think about doing all the things your handlers are telling you to do while the debate is happening. You’ll end up making big mistakes. Kind of like playing a sport or any other type of performance - your swing in tennis or golf has to be second nature - if you think about it too much while playing you are screwed. So on the big night let your muscle memory be your guide and be yourself.

(But please get rid of the smirk)
