Obama will be able to easily walk around and "warm up" to the preselected, pro-Obama crowd...... [/quote] You can BET this will be front-loaded with Democrat operatives, pretending to be "Independents", just like CNN did to the Obama McCain debate in 2008. Candy Crowely has surely gotten her Dead-Horse-head-in-the-bed message from the Chicago mob by now. [/quote] Except this isn't freakshow McCain but Romney. Think of a debate at a shareholder meeting between these two guys and their visions for the direction of the company. Obama has to defend what's happened under his watch and defend his record of do nothing. Quips and polished, emotionally-tailored slogans aren't going to cut it this time around. Obama's operatives in audience can cheer all they want for their messiah; But when faced with the facts - and that's what matters when those facts can be deliverered by the right person who knows wht they are saying - Obama and his bots will be shut up quickly. Throw in the television audience and their overall perception of the exchanges likely to take place, the reality is that Obama is pretty much finished and he knows it. Here's Romney at a townhall a few months ago. It's not a debate - but think Obama can hang with this guy?

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.
