    It is evident that the upcoming debates may be Romneys last chance to take the presidency. With the recent Obama surge in the polls, Romney needs to make the debates a gamechanger

    It has been done in the past. Ronald Reagan came off as a likeable old man who the public could relate to on simple terms. Bill Clinton showed his spark in connecting with the voting public. For both, the debates were a gamechanger

    Romney lacks the personality of either. The public is not going to warm up to him based on his inherent charm. Romney needs a quick knockout in the debates. He has to make his points in the first hour of the first debate. That is when the public makes its decision

    Romney was perceived as a mega millionaire who is only interested in helping the rich and doesn't care about the struggles of working America. His 47% comments affirmed that. If Romney cannot connect with working Americans, he will lose.

    His only chance is to throw the one percent under the bus and appeal directly to working America. He needs to propose specific...yes, SPECIFIC ideas of how he will help working Americans

    Otherwise, his cadidacy is doomed

    Hopefully the format will have both candidates asked the same exact question, thus forcing the MSM to either throw both of them softballs, or go hard on both of them.

    Hard questions on the economy, which are not asked by the lapdog media, would be trouble for Obama, considering he hasnt ever faced any.

    The only thing Romney needs to do is pound on Obama's record of 3 years of total failure in every sphere. The numbers dont lie.

    Obama is in serious trouble here. The demographics that came out for him in droves in 08 are gone. He needs to articulate why he will be better able to work with a GOP Congress to get specific legislation through.

    His candidacy is doomed. He cannot say what must be said to win this election. If he does, he loses the present far right GOP. If he doesn't state what must be said, he loses on the basis of what he has already said.

    And all the President has to do is turn the debate into a listing of the flip-flops that Romney has done thus far, and clearly state his intentions for the next term.

    Romney is in the position of having to win the debates resoundingly, or he loses the election. Obama can survive easily if the opinion is that the debates are a tie, or Romney did only slightly better. Should the President win resoundingly, then it is all over.

    lol...funny shit...referring to how gullible you are...

    When Romney chnages a stance on an issue...he is a flip flopper....

    When Obama changes a stance on an issue........it is Obama "evolving".....

    And you fall for that rhetoric.

    I love it.

    Since the awful MSM is owned by multi-millionaires, other than patriotism and concern for all Americans, what would motivate an industry to support Obama and Democrats over Romney and the GOP? Whine all you want, this straw dog won't hunt.

    Guilt is usually a reason people vote democrat. I put stupidity up there as well.

    What do you think is the percentage split (Rep/Dem) for journalists as a whole? Do you think it reflects the overall split, or is it skewed to one side?

    What do you think the editorial split will be for Obama vs Romney?

    If Romney thinks that is his path to victory, he is doomed to fail


    He has been hitting Obama on the economy for a year and is falling further behind. The public is well aware of the economy and has not been convinced that Romney is the one to fix it. Romney needs to present more than the typical supply side solutions. The public perceives that Romney is only concerned with the wealthy in his solutions

    Unless he can convince lunchbox America that he can help them, he will lose

    Do you actually think the media is unbiased, you cocksucker?
