The MSM will report what they are told to. Stories have already likely been written. Obama’s been handed the questions so they know his response.
the president has not debated in the past four years
and very very few news conferences ,but has spent most of his time reading speeches
Ok, I am confused I just read a few days ago that Romney will lose the debate.
Is this going to be like the Olympic badminton competition where both teams tried to throw the match.
The President is a slack jawed , stuttering imbecile who has a problem formulating sentences! He can’t think on his feet and he is lazy as the day is long!
That is why he will lose!
Who gives a poop? I am so sick of debates. JFK lost against Nixon; Bush lost against everyone. It didn’t matter. Romney won’t win or lose because of the debates. JFK looked better yeah, but he always looked better. People wanted to have a beer with Dubya more than Robogore or Melty Face, but they always did.
Someone tell me the president who won because of debates. Lincoln, maybe, but those were debates from a previous election. An election he lost. Still, without them he would gave remained a hick outsider failed house member. So there’s that. Reagan, with “There he goes again”? Nah, Carter malaised himself.
This is not a surprise.
No candidate should ever go into a debate bragging.
Any slip up will make you look like a tool for over-blowing your skills.
Will Romney hit a “home run” or will it be a “game changer”? The “media” and their masters down at the DNC are full of ****. The majority of the people won’t even be watching these debates. When someone is talking intelligently about the economy, the voters’ look at their TV like a pig looking at a wrist watch.
ObaMao hasn't attended briefings, but he's been campaigning (or vacationing) nonstop since he was an I'll state senator. He's the POTUS, what on earth does he need to do to prep since all his time has been consumed with image building?
The teleprompter must be broken...
“I think the president will hold his own, but he’s not known for sound bites”
No, he’s not known for being able to put together a coherent sentence without a teleprompter.
BO’s supporters won’t be watching the debates. They’ll wait for the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert synopsis of them.
NAIL OBAMA on LIBYA.
Its also a chance for Romney to bring a little ‘education’ to the process. Give the audience the unbiased, non-spin, outside the LSM facts about the Obama failures in plain terms and keep hammering away on Bams record of failure. Its a target-rich enviroment of material. Maybe he wins over a few more Indies at best.
The president isn’t known for sound bites?
“You didn’t build that...”
“..bumps in the road...”
The most important lesson Ive learned is that you cant change Washington from the inside.
Remembering president debates 4 years ago I’ll doubt Romney wins till they’re over.
Just like last time the questioning panel are all leftists and in 2008 that’s just what Obie needed to win.
Granted the GOP candidates are diametric opposites, but will bias win out again?
They are doing this for two reasons. First, if Obama truly stinks it up and Romney wastes him in the debate, they can run with the story that they believed Romney would win from the start, thereby marginalizing Romney’s performance. Second, if Romney underperforms in the debate, they can come back and say that they believed he would do better than he did and then run with the story that ‘maybe he’s not that strong a candidate after all’. It’s all an attempt to marginalize the debates.
Take this to the bank: No matter how well Romney does, immediately after the first debate, the “media” will — as directed — report that Romney desperately needed a knockout but failed. They will marvel at Obama`s ability to take a verbal punch and counter it.
They`ll “give the edge” to Obama. The “media`s” response will have all the suspense of that phantom 2/3 majority voice vote for re-inserting God`s name into the dems` platform at the convention.
Woodhouse also stated that Obama has not HAD TIME TO PRACTICE...rofl...lower expectations. Democrats are famous for dumbing down everything, especially for minorities.
