Skip to comments.Obama Making Debate 'Adjustments' (read: Obama still wetting the bed...)
Posted on 10/14/2012 5:56:47 PM PDT by RoosterRedux
As President Obama began to hunker down at a plush resort here for three full days of debate prep, his campaign team signaled the incumbent may steal a page from Vice President Joe Biden and show a more aggressive tone in Tuesday's second face-to-face showdown with Republican Mitt Romney.
"Gov. Romney has been making pitches all of his life and he knows how to say what people want to hear whether that was during his time at Bain or during the dozens of town halls he did during the primary," Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Saturday. "His running mate also left him vulnerable on a number of issues -- admitting there was a $5 trillion tax cut, after he denied it, but again failing to explain how they would pay for it, leaving women worried about their ability to make choices about their own health care and failing to articulate their plan for winding down our presence in Afghanistan."
It's significant that Psaki previewed the president's next clash with Romney with an immediate mention of his time at Bain, a word Obama never mentioned during the first presidential debate, in Denver.
Senior campaign adviser David Axelrod said on "Fox News Sunday" that Obama is making adjustments before the debate and plans to be more aggressive.
Axelrod also referred to Romney's investment capital career before entering politics.

Oh I so HOPE this news is true!!!
Attacking Romney is the WORST possible strategy Obama could use.
Romney is a master of the dodge and counter strike twice as hard.
Obama would be much better served to more or less ignore Romney and talk directly to the American people on what HIS plan is for turning the economy around in a 2nd Administration that he isn’t currently doing now
It’s still going to be difficult to look someone in the eyes when your lying to them. That’s the way it is for normal people anyway. Maybe they’ll let him wear sunglasses.
Proverbs 29:9 will be in full effect.
Feline nickname. First gay president, indeed.
Obama is that turd they are polishing. Shine away boys...shine away!
Let them stay in their delusions of thinking that they will some day find the clean end of a turd.
Hmmmmm guess the grins you gave Romney didn’t quite work in the first debate.
And... guess the manic laughs and insults of the Biden debate went over like a lead balloon...
What to do, what to do.
No teleprompter. Hmmmm...
No notes.... Hmmmm...
Guess your screwed.
Perhaps he is going to school Mitt on bankruptcy law and GM?
Pray for America
No one can teach Obamugabe to act like an assclown...he does it better than anyone.
I can take care of myself by myself very well. I'm not worried about my health care, I'm more worried about what will be imposed upon me.
I wish women would wise up and stop being used as a bargaining tool.
“Gov. Romney has been making pitches all of his life and he knows how to say what people want to hear...”
You gotta be kidding me.
Except...he doesn't have one.
ANY page from Biden will be a disaster .... go for it, Barry!
Mitt will make mince meat of the Harvard Law Review President! I wish Mitt could get into bankruptcy law...but he needs to stick with the big picture.
That said, I hope the courts can get into Obama's violation of bankruptcy law once he leaves office...
Obama is scum...but he did know how to overturn 200 years of good law in 1 day.
He is an evil genius...but he was schooled at such!
What a load of nonsense. Obama has been selling dope all his life in one form of another.
I have sold in many domains. I was always most comfortable when I knew the product, loved the product, and really believed in the product. Obama just plain and doesn’t believe in his product.
It never fails to sicken me when they say “women’s health” and what they really mean is for a woman to go completely against her natural instinct and murder another person who is dependent on her for life. And what about the women who buy into this and say “my body”? There’s another body involved - the one they’re trying to kill.
This is about as pro-woman as Hugh Hefner trying to turn all women into cheap whores.
Only true if you know you are lying. Obama is so in love with himself that he doesn’t even know he’s lying. Truth does not exist for him. The rules don’t apply to him.
He’s an affirmative action baby.
The Marxist will not be stupid enough to be an angry black man. But he will be persistently lying and demagoguing his time with a fusillade of the usual leftist talking points we’ve all heard before. There will be no surprises, as he has nothing new to say. Mitt needs to parry and then counterpunch real hard with his usual good nature. The Marxist is vulnerable on nearly every issue, and I trust Mitt has a response for all that may come his way.
i don;t suppose he would run on his record
They are having trouble getting that contact-lens TelePrompTer® working correctly.
Axlerod is giving the MSM their talking points.
Barry’s gonna put an extra roll of quarters in his pink purse and smack Mitt upsidedahead!
A pathological liar has absolutely no problem looking into the eyes of whom they are lying to, especially a practiced liar..... they do not feel guilt like normal folks.
What's a Marxist, half black liberation theologist to do. He can't complain about capitalism being socially unfair...lest he offend the majority of voters. But he can't refrain from complaining about the unfairness of the capitalist system without offending all his honest followers.
Dang...there is that rock...and then there is that hard place. What do I do?
They are having trouble getting that contact-lens TelePrompTer® working correctly.
Iv’e been saying he will use a contact lens TelePrompTer for weeks now...lol
Expect the rabble-rouser to emerge as Obama tries to leave his effeminate side behind.
You’re right and I’m not selling 0bama short. I expect him to to a full-on reeactment of the bank scene in It’s a Wonderful Life and ask everyone to stick together with him. And of course Romney will be cast as Mr. Potter. Expect nothing less than 90 minutes of pure class warfare.
Obama was having trouble with the order...
Laugh Smile Interrupt Lie
Smile Interrupt Lie
Call Romney a Liar
MSM repeats lies punctuates with “Obama on top of his Game” and “mopped the floor with Romney”...
exactly, which is why he will attack.
Screwed indeed. Obie has nothing. He will be pummeled on every issue he dares to raise
I’d be vomiting now if I were Obie
Maybe he could get a pair of them Google glasses.
How many times does it have to be demonstrated that a cut in tax rates results in an increase in total tax receipts, meaning they don't have to be 'paid for'?!
And yet liberals, along with their sycophants in the media, still continue with this bogus argument.
Considering the strategy is not exactly shocking (the reports of what Biden would do were true after all), I doubt Obama will do what he needs to win, which is present his second term plans and explain what he will do. Instead, he will attack Romney, getting the wrong lessons from Biden.
All eyes will be on Obama. He is the one who has to improve his performance and everyone will be looking for it. When he doesn’t deliver - he can’t - he will blow a gasket - off camera after it’s over. Moochelle will be mighty pissed too. Can’t wait!
Oh, as for the Regressive moderators- bring 'em. Romney was getting ganged up on during the GOP primaries, against opponents FAR better than Obama or some Regressive media hack (Gingrich, Santorum, Cain). His senses are honed, sharpened, and he knows exactly what he's doing. B. Hussein will be reduced to a simpering puddle of slug slime by the time Romney's through with him.
there remains a net decrease of 316,000 jobs since the start of Obamas presidency
But liar Obama says he created 5 million jobs.
It’s always risky to try to be something you’re not.
I see it panning out as something like Randy Couture, challenger, and Richard Simmons, incumbent, in the Octagon.
It ain’t gonna be pretty. (For the Democrats.)
OK, we’ll see yer Bain and raise you Benghazi. Bring it.
Obama can try to dwell on Bain during the economy portion, even though Romney left Bain a dozen years ago. When Romney focuses on Obama's handling of the economy, Obama will deflect and say it's time to look forward.
Look backwards for Romney, but forwards for Obama.
Then comes the foreign affairs portion of the debate. Obama will try to blame Romney for the Middle East, saying his trip during the Olympics set the stage for what happened later.
Romney better focus on how can Obama, as an executive, be so removed from the goings on in his departments? The only explanation for the disconnect between Intelligence, State, and the White House, is an incompetent executive who doesn't know how to manage.
Hit Obama on why he was not in the loop of his own administration. Ask him why he didn't proactively try to find out information instead of waiting for others to come to him. Ask him why he missed so many daily briefings and held practically no cabinet meetings? Ask what the American people are to make of a President who is so disengaged with his own staff?
And as he did in the first debate with his story about his 5 BOYS trying to spin yarns to him, he’ll obliterate Obunga “elegantly.”
