Actually it is not about beating him in a debate, it is about letting him beat himself. The true bully will come out, just like when he invited Ryan to that conference at GW University, I believe it was, wherein he brow beat him from the podium wherein Ryan had no chance to respond. A bit earlier that week, at a private meeting at the white house, when on equal footing around a table, he kept his mouth shut because he was not in a superior position, like a bully with a crowd behind him. Don’t defer to him, challenge him and keep it up. He will blow, he has to especially if he sees he is going down. Remember, he is the affirmative action president, never made his bones. Like the Mafie Don’s son who steps in to take over the family, no real respect from the rest of the family.

Yep, he needs to show America more of his Angry Face

Let them know he means business. That should close the deal for him.

It’s a four game series, Obama’s down 0-1, with crazy grampa debating the intellectual leader of the Congressional GOP tomorrow. Unless they replace Biden’s brain before the debate, there will be another week of explaining terrible debate performances.

By my count this is the fourth version of the excuse. Romney bullied Leher
Romney had notes
Romney lied so stupendously that zero was dumbfounded
zero is just too nice.

LOL - you left out "Obama suffered a lack of oxygen to his brain, due to Denver's altitude"!

This “debate” is actually a town hall meeting. That means that O will be given specific lead in questions from the chosen. Whatever the question, say health care, he will begin by saying something false about Romney’s program and frankly may spend his entire time saying how bad Romney’s plans are. The best thing for Romney to do would be to take whatever the next question is, pivot, and say I will get to that in a second, look over at the turd and say, I would appreciate it if when you characterize my plan, you tell the truth about it and then go onto his answer.

I think Obama could be triggered to blow himself up, just like you said. But I wonder if Mr. Romney is willing to crank it up just one more notch over last week and try to do just that. I’m think Romney might be “too nice a guy” to try to do that on purpose.

So, in the next debate, he’s going to adopt his Rev. Wright “southern” growl and play the race card. Right?

Being angry in a televised debate is the road to ruin. TV is a cool medium. Yelling to large crowds in outdoor or large indoor rallies to energize voters is okay. But TV viewers are repelled by angry faces and angry voices coming at them in their living rooms.

Besides, anger is not presidential. And when Obama gets angry, he tends to get whiny and sarcastic — a real turn-off. And being Teleprompterless, who knows what might come out of an angry acolyte of Jeremiah Wright’s mouth? This could be very interesting.

This is going to be really fun since a lot of voters have NO IDEA that the Obama Administration lied through their teeth about the Benghazi attack and Romney will get the chance to break the story to a lot of them.

He actually things obamacare is a net electoral plus for him.

That was an observation I made on the live debate thread, that he kept raising Obamacare as if he thought it was popular. If he really believes that, it proves he is inside a bubble and people are too afraid of him to tell him the truth.

You've hit the nail on the head. Bullies are notorious cowards. Zero is a bully. Put him in a position where his opponent can't respond and he is very "brave." Put him in a position where his opponent can bop him in the nose, he shrinks.

The good thing about Romney’s demeanor, is I think he will blow up O while he keeps a smile on his face. He went after the GOP rivals in spades when he had to. Make no mistake, we need not take this election for granted and I am sure he has been told that. Don’t throw him a life jacket, throw him a lead weight. I despise that guy so much, I’d love to see him lose his cool and vapor lock on screen.

Fifth. He told his Hollywood crowd that he can't be expected to 'perform' perfectly night after night.

He's a performer, not a leader. I'll give him that one.

‘Polite’ probably means he didn’t do something unbelievably immature — like scratch his cheek with his middle finger and smirk at the camera to make sure his equally immature commie supporters got the message.

Deliberately lying to the American people, during a presidential debate, is not what I would consider as “to polite”.

You are spot on, plus Romney is going to shock the “Creep” during this debate. We haven’t seen nothing yet.

He has to hide his true nature and thoughts from the public.

Speaking off the cuff while riled by someone you hate and disrespect is dangerous for Bam Bam. He wants to protect the false image the media has painted of him.

I love that he is so narcissistic that he can’t even say he is down one. He acts as if he already won two debates, and just dropped one, so he can still tell himself he is still ahead.

A narcissist who has failed, and everyone knows it. Man is this going to be fun to watch, as he unravels.
