[quote:berniemom2012:MV8yMDExOTk4XzMzODA4OTQ0XzcyMDJFODgy] [quote:MrScrooge:MV8yMDExOTk4XzMzODA4NzEwXzI4NkY1RDQ=] The next debate, unfortunately, will be townhall style.... Obama will be able to easily walk around and "warm up" to the preselected, pro-Obama crowd...... [/quote] Not sure what "town hall" format means. The audience asks the questions? Candidates get to roam around and wave their arms? Longer speaking times per guy? Or ... What? Any case, I'm expecting Obama to go all folksy and "aw shucks" whenever possible. Like with that stupid joke he tried to make after the last debate, about a different Romney showing up. That crap is Reagan, pure classic Reagan. He'll also have a page full of zingers ranging from humorous/folksy to morally-outraged to be delivered at (he hopes) appropriate moments. Who knows, maybe he'll go full retard with the "I have a dream" schtick. [/quote]
In the next two debates, Obama will take a page from the book of his much-admired role model: Ronald Reagan.
In the 1984 presidential race, Reagan had to debate Michael Dukakis who had actually hosted a popular debate show out of Boston in the 1970s.
Dukakis threw every fact in the book at Reagan, but Reagan would just shake his head, smile that idiotic smile of his, and utter something like "There he goes again!" ( which he'd used against a much smarter man, Jimmy Carter, in 1980).
Ronald Reagan had a terrible relationship with truth. He lied with a charming smile on his face, doing his best to disarm and dismiss smarter and more competent men who opposed him.
He once uttered a revealing Freudian slip. Intending to say "Facts are stubborn things" he said: "Facts are stupid things."
Ronald Reagan served two terms as president.
