A post on this forum has the Obama camp making excuses for the O regarding the debate outcome - not enough practice, overworking at his "regular" job, challengers tend to win the first debate, yada yada. David Plouffe looking like he swallowed a bug and it was tickling his throat during a tough interview with David Gregory. Paul Ryan doing his usual bang-up job after Chris Wallace tried his damnedest to trip him up. The word is getting out in dribs and drabs that Romney is about to turn it loose. He's well prepared for the debate. He'll be laying out his plan in detail. He'll be giving a major foreign policy speech. He's been hoarding $$ for this time in the campaign. There will be a blitzkrieg of ads. He's got a collection of zingers. I'm so glad someone is saving them up. The O comes across with so many, I can't catch them all. And that's just what I've been hearing/seeing in the past 3 days. The first part of his plan has ended. Romney knows he's not a "campaigner." He got thru it all these months, letting the O have the lead, smiling when the media ragged on him. Now we're down to the last 30+ days. And he's about to come out swinging doing what he does best - win! It's MOMENTUM, baby! It's a PLAN! Romney's got it! The O will be down for the count and he KNOWS it.
