What Obama should do when debating Romney

He can start singing "It's Howdy Doody Time" Oh wait, that would
be Romney.

Obama can just sing "Don't ya just know it"

The jabbing and insults don't work well with Indies and moderates. That is Romney's style. Obama simply needs to state his positions and act presidential. His position on virtually every issue from tax fairness to a path to citizenship enjoys majority support in polls.

Lightbulb What Obama Should Do When Debating Romney

Two things:

1. Act presidential

2. Take a 5 hr energy drink to keep from dozing off from boredom

Obama vs Gingrich or Santorum would make for an extremely fun and entertaining campaign. But it looks for all the world like it will be Obama vs Romney. And that'll be a real snooze-fest. Romney is so dull and colorless. It'll make 2012 a replay of 1996, one of the most bland and predictable campaigns in a century.

Dealing with dollars and sense usually is
The "dancing shoes" of Obama are more than just scuffed.
IMO the Star persona isn't going to work this time around.

We've all been witness to what happens when Romney goes off his teleprompter. His handlers must cringe every time he tries to speak off the cuff. At least his campaign staff has job security. As long as Romney is speaking they will never be without work. It's a full time job for an entire staff just in "clarifying" or walking back his latest "misstatements."

Nice to see the Obama sock puppets panicking now that Romney pretty much has the GOP nomination sealed up.

Watch Romney support all sides of all issues then just smile at him.

Default What Obama Should Do When Debating Romney

It's simple, really. Obama just needs to maintain his composure when Romney melts down on stage.

Struggling to remember what he believes in should accomplish said Romney meltdown quite nicely. No matter what position Romney takes on almost any issue, Obama will be able to point to something he said in the past that directly contradicts it. Come to think of it, Romney doesn't even need Obama to be there--he could simply debate himself. He's definitely got all sides covered.

You really think that humor (good or bad) is manifestation of panic? How strange.
