I think you put that rather succinctly. Couldn’t agree with you more. The body language was really intriguing. I don’t think you’ll see any change in the second debate, and in fact, I wouldn’t put it past these guys to do something that postpones the debate.
We’ve had elections during wars, so they’re not going to cancel the election, but not showing up for a debate? I think that is the best and only advice that Axelrod can give his candidate. Some manufactured crisis could do it on the eve of the debate.
“I dont think youll see any change in the second debate...”
I think that Obama has been verbally reamed multiple times - by Axelrod, Michelle Obama, his fans in the MSM, etc. There won’t be a repeat of the first debate.
Obama will try to come out swinging. But prior to that, Obama’s MSM allies will pummel Roney in print and on TV in order to soften him up.
He’ll try to goad Romney into saying something stupid or harsh. Of course, he’ll try to appear Presidential - but he’ll get that haughty, chin extended upward attitude.
Hopefully, Romney will be ready for this.
