    Does Obama get to use his teleprompter? If not, he loses.

    Re: Most likely to win Presidential debates

    Obusha is a natural politician who is expert at cajoling and convincing. Rombama is an executive who is used to giving orders and not having to argue with his employees.

    So, I think Obusha might be the better debater.

    In the end, it might come down to the positions themselves, not so much the debaters. Again, I think Obusha has the advantage. He offers a free lunch to the masses. Rombama offers a tax cut to the classes. Now, the classes are more likely to vote than the masses so it will be interesting to see how this turns out. IMHO, Obusha will win (the election itself) by sheer force of numbers.

    I think Intrade has got it right.

    All Obama has to do is take a stand on a few issues. We all know Romney won't do that. Romney will come out looking like someone with no opinions. He'll be wishy washy like he's been for the entire campaign. He stutters out a few Fox News talking points sometimes, but never takes a real stance.

    He will either look like someone that takes no positions or, even worse, he will actually lay out his positions and then he will really be in trouble.

    Romney is trying to play the card the Obama doesn't deserve a second term. That is an incomplete strategy, as certainly a mid-term is a referendum on the incumbent. However, once the question is asked "Does this guy deserve another term?" and the answer is returned "probably not", then the next question is "Is the alternative better"..... to get past the question, Romney has to be a known. Being quiet on policy means he remains "unknown". IMHO, "Trust Me" is not a winning platform for any politician.

    Depends on your politics. I predict that people will think both have won.

    As was stated, since this is open debate with no teleprompters, Romney will most likely do better. Because every single time Obama goes off teleprompter he puts his foot in his mouth.

    Seems unfair to disregard a politician for one thing he said that didn't happen, especially when he wasn't even elected yet, but you still support Romney and we all know he hasn't achieved all his promises or stuck to the same positions either.

    You have a double standard dude.
