    Default Debate Prediction

    I predict that Romney will attempt to be offensive but end up defending his flawed position. While the experts say that Obama has to just not make any mistakes....I predict he will be offensive spelling out the benefits of obamacare and his economic policy. End result...Obama goes up in the polls and Romney gets desperate.

    I predict that, just as Hillary did, Mitt will make the President get miffed by staying on point.
    while I am sure his handlers will tell him what to do. If we get to see a huffy, no teleprompter president.
    It will get good.
    I predict ABC, CBS and NBC will say the President won and that FOX News (fair and balanced) will say Mitt won.
    I predict more people will watch jersey snore than the debates.

    I agree with Ken; pretty much verbatim.

    The only way Mitt can get ahead is to make Obama visibly mad to the audience...otherwise put a stick in him

    MY PREDICTION:

    The press will claim victory for Obama

    The "technical" debaters will claim triumph for Romney.

    Both will make huge glaring blunders.
    (media will only notice those made by Romney)

    Obama will emerge as the "people's president" because he will say something in street slang.
    Romney will look like the elitist that he is... he just can't help it, at some point he will come across as condescending and judgemental.

    Big Winner: Big Government

    Big Loser: American Public.

    CNN is so upset now because Obama has lost his convention bump. Obama can lose his cool when he's provoked, But the press will side with him no matter what. If he doesnt do well its because he's been so busy ( with Letterman and the View)

    Based upon what I have seen of both men in previous debates, I would have to give the edge to Obama in oral skills. I think the one who can remain cool and calm will come out on top. I think it will depend on who gets under whose skin 1st.
