    I suspect Romney is not spending one hour 'preparing' his defense of Bain. It is a self-evident truth. I am sure Romney was disappointed that Obama was too chicken to bring it up in the last debate. Romney was ready to slam dunk that lie back down Obama's throat then. Same with the 47percent comment.

    It is instructive to note that Obama did NOT bring those two lies up - he KNEW they were both insipid lies, and that he would have to dodge the line drive response aimed right at his stomach.

    If Obama mentions them this time it will be a sign of desperation. I an SO hoping he does.

    I actually don't know how Obama is going to survive this debacle. His only hope is that the moderator hectors Romney and coddles Obama to an unbelievable extent. There will be bias for sure - that much is a given - but the moderator is going to have to suit up and run physical interference for Obama for him to survive a knockout.
    I agree. Romney should clean his clock. It is almost unfair for Romney to be arguing about principles that he actually believes in and can defend. As opposed to Obama arguing against something he doesn't understand, policies he cannot defend, or principles (socialism) he doesn't want us to know about.

    Bill Laer actually did a good job with this. I don't expect as much from CNN's Crowley.

    I'd do away with both the moderator and the time keeper and let them go at it Lincoln-Douglas style because eventually they would run out of crap to say about each other and actually have to discuss their own stuff.

Romeny will say "no Mr President, no matter how many times you say it, it's not true" then Romney will go onto explain his plan and at that point Obama might as well leave the room.
    I think if Romney explained any, ANY, part of his plan, we all would be shocked. Since he hasn't explained it by now, I very much doubt he will during the debate.

    Obama needs to stay away from debate over domestic issues, you saw what happened last time. To bad Laura Ingraham isn't the moderator.

    Agreed - I expect full two-on-one situation with Crowley and Obama teaming up on Romney.

    This would not be a problem if the questions were from the public. Instead, the questions are being sent in to Crowley and she will "pick" the ones to be allowed to hit the floor. And then she reserves the right to 'follow up' as soon as Romney finishes his answer.

    I just know it will be fair - after all, a 'journalist' is in charge.

    I keep hearing this mantra as if it actually was a valid point. No politician has EVER given the kind of details the DEMs are demanding Romney provide.

    In fact we don't know the details of Obama's 'plan' - that is if he has one - and HE as been in office almost four years.

    What a candidate does is put forth a 'plan' that consists of core principles that will guide his policy. You are aware of course that a 'plan' has to be hammered out by congress. Romney will tell them -
    "Here are the principles that must be honored in the budget. If what you send me falls short, I will veto it."

    Hell, Obama himself doesn't even KNOW what the 'details' of his own plan are - he let Pelosi and Reid, the ignoramati, write his health care bill and neither he, nor they, knew the details of THAT abortion. Green eye-shade wimps in dark corners wrote that crap under direction from the Bid Money folks funding the Obama campaign.

    Obama has never been able to explain the "details" of his own budget enough to lure even ONE of his OWN DEMs to cast a vote for it.

    Demanding "details" from a candidate on something as complicated as a federal budget of a trillion dollars in a two-minute real time setting is beyond stupidity.

    What anyone who is interested wants to know is "what principles will you enforce in framing a budget?"

    Anything else is hyperbolic crap.

    When you talk about cutting that much revenue from the budget, you need to be able to explain how you are going to make it up. From what I can tell, there is a fair amount of that budget that is relying on job creation, which is fine, but I want to know how that will affect me. Seems like a fair question to ask a Presidential/Vice Presidential candidate.
