Skip to comments.Obama Arrives in Virginia to Prepare for Second Debate
Posted on 10/14/2012 12:12:58 AM PDT by Eleutheria5
President Barack Obama arrived in Virginia, where he plans to devote the next few days preparing for the second head-to-head debate with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
The second debate will take place in New York on Tuesday night, October 16 (Wednesday morning Israel time) and will address foreign and domestic policy. The third and final confrontation will take place in Florida on Monday, October 22 (Tuesday morning Israel time) and will focus on foreign policy...

I hope that he can adjust to the altitude this time.
I'm bound to do better this time ... cause I can't do any worse!
If Netanyahu would come to the debate it would be over before it started...; )
Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Whadaya mean he can’t do worse? He can do anything once he sets his mind to it. Yes, he can.
I have to ask. What is wrong with saving some money and prepping at Camp David? It’s nearby and president-freindly.
What? And fail to run the deficit a little higher? Next you’ll be advocating a balanced budget like some...(searching for vile enough word)...TEA partier./s
It won’t help.
You can’t fix stupid. The emperor has no clothes.
He shies away from press conferences for a reason... Even though the shamelessly lapdog press licks his boots.
He instead prefers to cuddle and purr with lightweight, adoring, Hollywood sycophants and mental midgets.
There is a reason for this.
Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. John Kerry fixed stupid for Obama. He gave him smart pills, and Obama said, “hey, these taste like cat turds,” and Kerry said, “see, you’re getting smarter already.” He tried the same thing with Joe Biden, but he just kept eating them and grinning ear to ear.
He’s putting an awful lot of eggs in the debate basket. Even if he does well in Tues debate, Romney already got the credibility he needed to win. That can’t be taken away.
Obama will kick ass this time and Romney will be Mr. Nice Guy like Ryan .
I don’t want Mr Nice Guy (Romney).
I want kick-ass guy, the mean man Romney’s former employers said he could be.
after the first debacle, the fix is in
he will know all questions and scripted responses ahead of time. he will not respond directly to anything romney says, as they will take him off script.
from this point on, it’s a hollywood script
I have to go over to Williamsburg for a musical gig this afternoon and that a**hole and his pet moose are going to have traffic snarled everywhere. If I see Boy Zero`s bus, I`ll be sure to give it the middle-finger high sign on behalf of FReeper Nation.
Flash it fast. The Secret Service might look askance at such gestures.
Romney will hold his own. I look for a meaner more aggressive debate on the part of The One. Might even get ugly.
This time they’ll blame on being too far south. The humidity was too high. He was homesick. Greens were too fast.
Im waiting for an arrest of those responsible for the Begazi attack. Some poor bastards they found on the side of the road tagged them as those responsible for the direct murder of the ambassador and a badge for Obama to wear to the debate as the guy who is tough on terrorism and the Bengazi debacle fades off into the sunset.
I’ve worried for about five minutes, you know, thinking Mitt might blow it in the next debate, and how Obama will crush him, because the Town Hall Meeting is HIS arena to shine.
Then reality bit me.
All Mitt has to do, is answer questions like a true conservative, if he is one, and I think he is. Obama can not change his colors, and questions that pertain to the future of an individual, a family, a business a neighborhood or a country will have answers with a similar theme.
For Obama it’s the gov’t will tell you what you will do, what you will be, and take your hard earned riches to disperse with them as they please. There will be no coherence to his answers, only ambiguity and blame.
Contrast a conservative’s answer, and it could be given FROM ANYONE ON THIS FORUM. That the gov’t allows us Freedom and the Pursuit of Happiness. No other country has that as their Mission Statement.
Mitt will give in detail what it’s like growing up in a country where you are hindered only by your lack of imagination at first. With some confidence and a little success you can do anything.
I’m not worried. Mitt gets it, this president doesn’t and never will because he doesn’t understand us.
REad my post. It mirrors what you’re saying.
If ever I’d debate you
Would I prep in Denver?
In Denver where John Kerry
Teaches me how to lie
No surely not Denver
The altitudes too high
And sometimes the airplanes
Dip low when they fly
So should I prep in Virginia,
All southern and warm
No, no! Not Virginia
Where the greens make me poo,
Before traveling to New York
Where I’m surrounded by Jooos!
“.....he will know all questions and scripted responses ahead of time....”
He can have a teleprompter, and it won’t matter. The man has no clue about what it’s like being an American. I pity him, actually. Fatherless he learned about “us” from people who hate America.
Never owning a business, he is anti business. NEVer having served he doesn’t understand the military family.
If the question is posed by a young man or women, “I want to be an astronaut, how can I?” You know right there that Obama will not understand the question or the answer, and he’ll ramble.
If the question is about something, neither men know the answer too, e.g. “There is a problem with animals being abandoned in our neighborhoods and roaming the streets. What are you going to do about it?”
The answers will be polar apart. Romney will analyzed the situation, find the problem, and then look for the solution. Obama will ramble on how the gov’t will take care of it.
I really am not concerned if Obama knows the questions, if he has plants in the audience or whatever. These men cannot be more different when it comes to answering questions about America and Americans.
Well he can”t blame altitude or travel this time.
With the celeb crowd he IS the smartest person in the room...
Reminds me of the episode of Malcom in the Middle where Hal becomes idolized by a bunch of muscle-bound body builders, because he helps one of them rescue his house keys from a grate that it fell down, using a stick and a piece of gum.
In the first debate Obama spoke 4 minutes longer than Romney but said 500 less words. There will be a lot of pauses, hums, and uhs from Obama. Romney responses will be quick, to the point and articulate. I’m looking forward to the debate.
Regarding post#10: That’s funny!
He is the president of the united states.... What’s there to prepare for.... Hey should know the answers... Already
From day one he has manipulated the press conference by talking slow and going on forever on the first question. Filibuster.
He has to guard against his Marxist dogma popping out in the debate.
So this is a challenge for him. His ideas suck, and he has to sell them while Romney is in his face exposing him.
If Romney is on, Obama will get roasted even more.
1. Blow the debate, lose the election, retire to sunny Hawaii.
2. Possibly win election (seems less likely by the hour), and face impeachment along with Biden over Benghazi-gate. Speaker of the house becomes acting President.
Expect a democratic plant in the audience to ask the “47%” question to Romney. Also, expect Obama to bring it up or second that “randomly” selected audience member. Expect it.
I would counter that with the President’s pronouncements dismissing we the “Astro Turf of America” as bitterly clinging to our guns and religion and as categorizing Republicans as the “enemy”. I would also criticize the President for all the other divisive tactics he has employed. Hey, but that’s just me.
When Jon Carry is the intellectual giant of this group, you know they’re in trouble.
global policy ....has been insane this debate will be easy..obummer and hitlery have messed up in 4 counties...Romney can just say :muslim brotherhood”..over and over...
bacon is good, dogs are nice,women are people.
Ryan is a decent, intelligent fellow and all, but he had very weak sauce in combating the childish, playground debate tactics from Joe Biden. It doesn’t take much to look someone in the eye and say, “Knock it off. You are behaving like a child. Grown-ups are trying to have a discussion here. You are supposed to be the Pres/Vice Pres, why are you acting in such an undignified manner?”....Also....you can throw in....”Well that’s just stupid” or some such low-brow stuff. Who knows, such a response from Romney might even appeal to the blue-collar crowd in Ohio.
Let’s hope Romney has a few well-crafted responses for the attacks that will surely come. Obama can’t be as immature as Joker Biden, but he will attempt to be more aggressive than last time. Count on it.
No Marquess de Queensberry rules here folks. We may need UFC rules.

Hey, I beat Scott to it when Obozo was across the Rivah, in my neck of the woods...flipped him off royally...no SS YET.
Black people don’t camp....
Interesting that the fact there is a championship level golf course at Kingsmill isn’t mentioned in the Media...
Even so, bragging about it ain’t smart.
Ryan did it right. If a man is making an ass of himself in a public debate, let him continue to do so. It’s rhetorical Jiu Jitsu. Makes you look better for refusing to stoop to his puerile games and continuing to discuss the issues rationally and with dignity, and that highlights his folly all the more.
But I don’t think Obama will do that, and it’s unsafe to assume he’ll fold up this time, too. He has debated John McCain before, and not done too badly. He didn’t win decisively so much as McCain shot himself in the head. He said “the economy is basically sound,” and two weeks later it imploded on cue.
But stupid grins and sneers are not his style. He wants to come across as the cool, distinguished brotha. Like Morgan Freeman and Friedrick Douglas, radiating style and eloquence in one well-dressed package. He isn’t that, but that’s what he’ll aim for. That’s what he believes he is.
The reality is he’s Morgan Freeman as Vincent the Vegetable Vampire from the Electric Company, illustrating the letter combos “uh” and “er” and his voice doesn’t have Morgan’s silky richness, either.
As a complete aside, having nothing to do with this or any other discussion, I AM NOT INTERESTED IN CHATTING WITH ANY REAL LIVE RUSSIAN GIRLS! I don’t care how much the “service” paid to own the words “relationship,” or “now” or whatever other key words they now have squatters rights on. Is there any way to turn this bull-s@#$ off?
It's a Town hall style debate: watching Jerry Springer reruns is all the prep needed.
It may be rude, impolite or rash...but when the opportunity presents itself...
Let them bring it!
