One debate and all the poll numbers flip? Romney takes the lead in 11 swing states? Romney moves ahead in the electoral vote?


Anything about the Obama Presidency without accepting the strawman arguments we see him constantly does not play well for Obama.

Obama can be a great debater, but against an informed opponent, it is just not a situation where he can win.

Obama has to turn the debate away from the last 4 years. Which is essentially impossible because his argument is that we have to continue what we have been doing because it is working, just a little slowly.

Obama's only real chance in the next debate, is the moderator making it impossible for Romney to confront Obama's facts, and to keep Romney within some prescribed timeframe on each question. I expect the moderator to really go for tight control in an attempt to make this appear a fight between the moderator and ROmney, with a patient Obama answering strawmen, errggghhh I mean questions patiently and with a smile.

Well, that is what I expect to see attempted, the Romney camp will IMO see this possibility also so can they dismantle it? We will see.
