    Obama to Crash Debate Prep in Nevada as Campaigns Lower Expectations - ABC News

    Team Obama is laying it on heavy that the president may be the less-prepared candidate because of the demands of his office.

    To date, Obama has had only a handful of two- to three-hour prep sessions at Democratic National Committee headquarters with Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., who is standing in as Romney. Psaki said that Romney, by contrast, has been preparing like an “Olympic decathlete” with an unprecedented amount of practice.
    He started “earlier than any candidate in modern history and running through mock debates five times in 48-hours,” she said.

    One official, lowering the expectations bar even further for Obama, went so far as to note to ABC News that five out of the last six presidential challengers were judged to have won the first debate.

    I don't think any amount of debate preparation will make Romney any wiser or any smarter. He will come off as a protected and arrogant rich boy no matter what.

    Romney has two all-consuming motivations for running for President: (1) To outdo his dominant and judgemental father, and (2) to increase the power of the Mormon Church.

    He's too busy visting the ladies on the view and Letterman to practice.

    Why should he need to practice, he's so damn brilliant!!

    Not only is he brilliant, but he's best when he speaks extemporaneously without a teleprompter.

    Anyone wanting to be President is an arrogant SOB. I don't mean that in a bad way, but there is much truth to that. I don't think anyone runs for President, who can actually win, who is doing it to make the US a better place. They are doing it for the power and prestige of the job, plain and simple. So long as they are not absolutely crazy, I have no problem with that.

    Romney did horrid during the primary debates... Why would he do any better next to Obama? If anything the best hand Obama has to play is to remember quotes of Mitt along with a date of when Mitt once supported Obama's policy...

    Romney has to go for an early knockout in the debates. He needs to win the first debate and do it in the first hour

    Romney will have to take chances in the hopes of flustering the President and forcing him into an embarassing sound bite

    The risk is Romney coming off as unlikable....more unlikeable than he is right now

    No one that does better than Newt Gingrich does horrible. Horrible belongs to Rick Perry.

    obama doesn't have a good hand to play. There might be various reasons for his lack of practice. He is so arrogant he might think that his innate brilliance by carry him, or assume the voters are so stupid nothing that happens during the debate will affect the outcome.

    The one thing that is certain is no matter how well or how badly obama does, democrats will say he was superlative and won hands down.
