Obama doesn't have the confidence he can defeat Romney in a simple debate yet he want

    I will be shocked if the debates give us a clear winner. I expect that those on the right will say Romney won and those on the left will say Obama won. At this point, Romney needs to win big; Obama just needs to avoid saying something really stupid. And if Romney says something really stupid, then you can watch Republicans heading for the exits.

    It's standard debate strategy. Before the debate, praise your opponent, and be self-deprecating. The lower the expectations are, the better.

    Romney's camp has been doing exactly the same thing.

    Debates don't change anyone's mind anymore.

    I agree. The Debates don't mean much. Both sides will declare that their guy hit it out of the park.

    Its gonna be all about the economy and UE. Folks are gonna be voting with their pocketbooks.

    And if Obama says something stupid, it'll be buried by the Lamestream Media
