Is "humdingers" hyphonated? We should bring back using humdingers more often in speech.

Romney's going to come off as an even bigger douchebag than he already appears. Which I know seems impossible, but it sure sounds like he's going to give it his all.

Nah. I think he's gonna try and be "normal" or at least try to. He can't afford to be douchey

He's going to douche it up. No man can deny his basic nature under stress.

His failure at his attempts to be "normal" will only serve to enhance his doucheyness. ;)

Based on how low the expectations have been set by the Romney camp, as long as he doesn't do this

imageshack.us

a sizable minority will consider him the winner no matter how badly he shiats the bed rhetorically

Well, you want Romney to come to the debate, right? He and facts had a fight and now they can't even be in the same building, let alone same room.

Oh he will try. And he may succeed for the first 10 minutes or so. But the first time Obama really tweaks him, the real Romney will come out. And it will be spectacular.
 
2012-10-03 10:44:07 AM
I wish for one thing, and one thing only: For Obama to somehow ask Romney if he believes that the President is a natural born citizen.

The people in the front row would need Gallagher-shields for when Romney's melon explodes.
 
2012-10-03 10:44:35 AM
FTA: The president does not tend to fare as well going negative. But he has to attack.

Obama doesn't have to attack Mitt; all he has to do is make him be specific and force him off the script. That, or present a paradox to the Romnibot and watch his head explode.
 
2012-10-03 10:45:11 AM
What about the hornswogglers, or bushwhackers? The con men? Mexican bandits? Indian agents? Mugs, pugs, and thugs? Nitwits and halfwits and dimwits? Though on second thought...

The Device was upgraded last week with paradox-absorbing crumple zones for precisely that reason.
 
2012-10-03 10:46:30 AM
We all know Romney is armed with zingers. It's been in the news for some time now.

I'm giving odds of 3:1 against his being able to match the right zinger with the right question.
 
2012-10-03 10:46:44 AM
I bet you $10,000 that Romney wins by showing his deep connection to the struggles of working Americans by making common sense suggestions like borrowing $20,000 from your parents to start a business.

Obama can't attack something as fluid as Romney's stance on...well, just about everything. It's like fighting against water; it can't be done. Instead, he just needs to redirect Romney where he wants him to go.
 
2012-10-03 10:51:33 AM
Article is uninspired. The average Farker could list 5 more interesting things to look out for tonight

1) Obama reference to Romney's father
2) Romney playing something like "Obama tried hard but it didn't work and it's OK to try something new"
3) Romney being extra touchy with Obama when they shake hands
4) Obama have surprisingly short answers
5) Romney not mentioning Ryan's name once
 
2012-10-03 10:51:38 AM
How much you wanna bet Romney pulls the Reagan line 'There you go again' word for word on Obama? I mean all the GOP wants to do is paint Obama as a modern day Carter.

2012-10-03 10:52:42 AM
I predict Obama asks Romney for specifics on their "deficit-neutral" tax plan, none of which he will provide.

Even the talking heads on Fox News were saying Romney should avoid specifics and instead stick to "the President's failed economic policies".

Which, also, Obama should push for specifics on. Which, also, Romney will only address in generalities.

I wonder if the the GOP has perfected their Reagan hologram yet. Maybe they can have him sub in for Mitt for one of the debates.
