Again, he will do just fine in the townhall format, where the primary objective is to feel the questioner's pain.
That being said, I have a feeling that Mittens will do surprisingly well there too. I can't think of another Republican who has bought into the whole "Compasionate Conservatism" thing harder.
That was Bubba's special skill. Bobo will ramble on through many different subject areas until the audience is asleep. The danger to the pubs is not Bobo. The dangers to the pubs are Democrat plants in the audience and Democrat moderators.
Doubt it. That’s never been his strong suit, he isn’t Clinton. Very difficult for a malignant narcissist to empathize.
“Again, he (Obama) will do just fine in the townhall format, where the primary objective is to feel the questioner’s pain.”
I agree as far as you went, but Romney ought to stick to what he does well.
In the debate, Romney responded to questions with details and numbers, especially when it came to healthcare and the economy. This is normally a turn off to people like reporters. But it was a breath of fresh air to the mass audience because we sensed that he personally had been in up to his elbows with health care legislation when he was governor of MA. He obviously had a better understanding of Obamacare than Obama ever did.
Romney’s genuine involvement really contrasts with Obama’s glibness, and even more with Barry’s disappearing act during the Libyan crisis.
