Obama expected to 'come out swinging' at Tuesday's debate
CNN ^

Posted on 10/14/2012 3:14:37 PM PDT by Arthurio

Washington (CNN) – After near-universal bad reviews of his first presidential debate with Mitt Romney, President Barack Obama will bring more energy and passion to his second showdown with the GOP nominee, advisers to the president said Sunday.

Yet the come-out-swinging attitude many Democrats crave could be hindered by the debate's town hall format, which requires a likability factor not completely compatible with aggressive attacks.

Great! The “angry black man” routine. I was afraid of that. I think I’ll work late.

The Ambassador is dead and Al Queda is alive.

And Baraq was watching, at least until bedtime.

This should be a slam dunk, but of course it will be 2 on 1.

Just what America needs, Obama playing a demented Joe.

People, you had better wake up, this regime is stuck on power and they could care less about us.

I think the right needs to brace itself. The Mass Media is going to pull out all the stops to sell Obama as “the come back kid” the next two weeks.

Yes, that minor point could be a problem....

Also that Biden's performance reminded most divorced women of their ex-husbands, and most employed men of their obnoxious ex-boss.

It may play to Obama's core, but I hope that the Obamaphone lady, and women who need $3000 worth of condoms each year haven't yet become the majority.

Romney caught them be surprise the first time. This time, look for obama to be a Biden on steroids, lying and shouting. Romene just needs to stick to his game plan and have his facts to refute obama’s lies. Like Biden, obama will be playing to his base. Not Americans.

You should read the comments following. The libs are so delusional. They think Odumbo is armed with the truth. What truth? The man is as dishonest as they come.

The truth is all around us. Crippling debt, high gas and energy bills, a failed foreign policy resulting in the death of seals and an ambassador, record joblessness etc.....and the some.

Theres your truth Obamabots.

Valerie jarret is gonna try tweaking B. Hussein's pre-debate Meth/Coke cocktail a little bit, so he'll have a steady high for 90 minutes. This will be a delicate if not difficult thing to do. If Valerie doses B. Hussein's cocktail too much, he'll be bouncing off the walls, getting into peoples' faces, doing speed-rap versions of Ice-T, challenging Romney to a game of H-O-R-S-E, etc.

If it's too little, B. Hussein will crawl into a corner, shaking and sweating, crying for mama.

No Romney needs to play to more than his base.

Romney needs two things. At seeming conflict with each other.

First off, he needs conservatives.

Second off, he needs the middle.

I’ll not suggest the best way to do that. But he needs both.

I think Obama will become less likeable during this debate. The amount of pressure on O is hair curling and I don’t think that he is going to react to it well.

What a golden opportunity for Romney.

Obama already has a prickly personality, and cannot deal with anyone talking back to him. So if Romney manages to push just the right button, Obama could “blow himself out of the water.”

While his more radical followers are maybe screaming at their teevees for Obama to “go over there and punch that white guy out”, if he goes even just a hair too far, he will lose the vast majority of everybody in America.

Truthfully, it would not surprise me if his handlers are so convinced that Obama is a loose cannon, that they encouraged him to get tranquilized before the first debate. But after his dismal performance, that argument won’t work any more.

B.E.T: Shout out to you because you mentioned Town Hall might favor OTrauma... but with his planned strategy this is likely to mess him up!! :)

Not worried about the debate - Obamatollah is to debating what Cicero is to golf...

Mitt: “We must not let the future belong to those who blame others for their failures.”

Benjamin Franklin: “Those who are good at making excuses are seldom good at anything else.”

Remember, when the humiliated One “comes out swinging” Tuesday night, he’ll be showing his incompetence, immaturity, frustration and lack of ideas about how to solve the problems with the economy and unemployment. It will be embarassing for all Americans to watch. However, it will provide a lot of laughs and drama for his cult following.

Since the only reason at this timethat I am voting for Romney is to try to help get obama out of the WhiteHouse, I do not have the answer either.

Should Romeny get elected, unlike when I voted for Buse in the hopes he would prosecute the Clinton crime cartel, I am under no illusions that any wholsale changes for the better will be made. The only thing I wish for is getting obama out of power.

A shouting, in-your-face, smash-mouth assault will only remind people of the spectre of the “angry black man”, the one you cross the street to avoid having a direct encounter.

The way the hype is going, this is starting to sound like a reprise of the Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield match in 1997, where part of the tactics included biting off body parts.

I think so too. An opportunity to do what no one else has...confront him face to face on his failures and make hm answer for them to a national audience. Channel a little Newt and Sarah, combined with his own mastery of economics and business sense and he’ll be able to put the man-child in his place. and don’t take any crap from the moderator, either. Be a nice guy but don’t let ANY OF THEM WALK ON YOU!

Mitt needs to needle the One until he explodes.

The way to do it IMO is to ask a quick loaded question at the end of each answer Mitt makes to an audience question. Zero will be forced to respond to the loaded question and he will get crazier each time Mitt does it.

As far as I am concerned that would be impossible! He hit zero likability on my scale before he was ever inaugurated.

Because the most bellicose blusters on the right are the 1st to wave the white flag the minute anything goes against us. They are every bit as emotion driven as the Leftists. Quick to latch on to any victory, just as quick to give up the second things get tough for us.

"I think President Obama is going to come out swinging,"

He might come out swinging but let's not forget he's still a street punk at heart. The first counter punch will have his lower lip quivering and the second will have him running off stage crying Momeeeeee.................

He might be the President and Commander in Chief but he's still a sissy boy and that's the truth!

Do his best Reagan impression. Be smiling, competent, optomistic and at ease. Answer the questions honestly instead of trying to spin them

Look Presidential while Obama makes himself look like the jackass he is.

That will win him both the right and the middle.

People on our side need to stop “bracing” like a bunch of pussies for once. Bravo.

His "John, the election's over." nastiness came when he perceived himself as the victor for all time.

He'll just double down now that he's covered in flop sweat and make Biden look respectful and thoughtful by comparison.

Think claw marks on the Oval Office doorframe.

If he dispenses with politeness he will lose the independents.
Rudeness, arrogance, personal attacks and an inability
to make a cogent case for re-election will be his downfall.

Why not? He's an angry black racist who hates white people ("Behaved stupidly") and obviously/reporting hates Romney with an unearthly passion.

I expect he'll be full of piss and vinegar.

The sooner he's unemployed the sooner we can begin recovery of 4 years of his ruinous regime.

Do you think Obama has any idea how unmatched he and Romney are?

Romney has facts and figures; Obama has Cousin Pookie and Obamaphones.
