    Obama or Romney?

    Me thinks Romney since he doesn't use a teleprompter, AFAIK.

    It's really not about the issues or facts, it's about 'feelings', unfortunately.

    Mitt has such a beautiful smile when he's being himself.
    I think Mitt can use that to his advantage.

    It will be pretty tough for Obama if Mitt decides to bring up a couple of issues.
    1) Unemployment.
    2) Entitlements.
    3) The Economy.
    4) Foriegn Policy.
    5) Fast and Furious.
    6) The Middle East.
    7) Lack of a budget for 4 years.
    8) 6 Trillion in bail-outs.
    9) Solyendra.
    10) Taxing the Middle Class and calling it Obama Care.
    Pretty much it would appear to me if Mitt plays hardball, O has to play defence allllllll night long. The real question is will he play hardball.
    If Mormons weren't really good at debate there wouldn't be so many of them.

    Obama is great in front of the mike and camera. So that would give him a leg up over Mitt. Has anyone really seem Mitt or Ryan debate on camera?

    Ryan could have the same likeness as Obama. He's young, good looking and a attractive appearance and voice. It 's his youngness that might go in favor or pro or against the Mitt-Ryan campaign.

    The republicans have aways had it ruff over the last election when it came down to the President and V-President ticket.

    O can babble for hours without really saying anything and sound good doing it.

    The first time I watched him speak I told the Mrs. this guy is dangerous.

    Obama could come back kill Romney with his 47% remark.

    As much as people have tried to make a big deal about it, I don't see it as such.
    I think if Mitt is prepared he can make that work fine with an explaination.
    It's much harder to explain the above ten points and 4 years of incompetance.
    Also, it would appear there are more issues on the horizon for O, continued M.E. unrest and some folks misbehavior in his staff are comming to light.

    I think when they see both of them up on stage together, they will see a very Presidential looking person, and the other guy.
    One of which will have real answers, the other not so much.

    If the Romney camp is not totally prepared for this issue, then they deserve to lose. He will be prepared.

    Well if mittens performance is the same as his resent words, he won't fare to well. His campaign is in constant crisis mode because of his gaffs. Obama is smooth and polished in debate mode, I see Obama winning them, I think mittens is just too used to entering a board room being large and in charge. That don't work so well in politics, sorry but true.

    The clown and his camp will not agree to any questions he does not know. He will have the question in advance or no deal. Also they will try to make him look like the underdog for the debates and if he just opens his mouth he will pass. Besides he will have an ear bud with a room full of mouthpieces.
    If 300 million fools cant see what this puppet has done to this Country they deserve him and what is coming.

    That's the ONLY thing I like about him.

    The Romney camp fears 0bama will benefit more from the debates. Anything Romney says will be "fresh" and picked apart by the media, while 0bama will just be spouting his same old crap everyone is used to.

    Looking at the link posted above, it says all the debates are going to be focused on either foreign or domestic policy (or both). Does that mean domestic policy covers 8 of the 10 points mentioned in Averageman's post?
