Skip to comments.A Second-by-Second Preview of What Romney Will Do at the Debate (he did not cheat)
Posted on 10/05/2012 3:28:49 PM PDT by doug from upland
The Romney campaign has spent the last few weeks hyping the event, but while doing so, they've made the curious decision to preview almost every single second of the candidate's debate performance in the press. The pundit consensus is that Mitt Romney needs to do something big to move polls in his direction, and the campaign consensus is that the debate will be what does it. Here's a look at the extremely detailed account of what Romney will do, according to what his campaign has told the media:
9:00p.m. ET: Debate starts
Seconds later: "As soon as he gets on stage ... he takes off his watch and puts it on the podium," Ann Romney tells CNN's Gloria Borger.
Seconds after that: Romney "writes 'Dad' on the piece of paper," Ann says, to remind him that he "Doesn't want to do anything that would not make his father proud."
Seconds after that: "And then he looks in the audience and he finds me. He has to find where I am. And he just he needs just that connection," Ann says.
Questions begin: Obama gets the first question, as decided by coin toss.

I still disagree with lots of his policies and hope we can push him to the right, but I am starting to develop a great deal of respect for this guy.
When McCain beat Romney, Obama mocked him. I honestly believe that Romney was the one he feared the most, and still do.
One on one, Romney is hard to beat.
I have always thought Romney is much more conservative than people know. Take for example his promise to cut PBS television and Big Bird. Contrast that with Obama who mocks saving billions of dollars by cutting PBS.
When the average person is in debt, they cut all the cheapest non essentials and entertainment, and TV is the first to go. Millions of Americans saw Mitt say that and cheered: “Phuck bigbird and his merry friends, I need to feed my kids.”
I agree. I also am finding that I like him, the human being. I think he is a much more.....genuine... person than I had given him credit for being, not plastic at all. His affection and regard for his wife and family seems real, not contrived or phony. I like that...a lot.
Yes, I sure hope we can push him to the right. He was not my choice...at all! But I find that I am sooooo looking forward to voting for him. Surprises the heck out of me, but there it is.
I haven't slept this good in four years......and I know it isn't over yet but I think I heard a collective exhale across the country on Wednesday night.
I have been impressed with the way Romney plans his schedule and prepares himself......based on what I've read about it in that regard he seems to already be conducting himself in a Presidential manner.
Next time, O needs to storm around the stage and sigh a lot, that always works. Romney, meanwhile, needs to practice that WTF look and shrug of Bush’s.
Obama is go into personal attack mode in the next debate. It’s what his hordes of brain-damaged supporters want.
Sounds like a plan. Especially the second part.
To even acknowledge this is a mistake. It should be left in the realm of the nut house left.
