They have 3 debates to do...it'll be like a boxing match...several blows thrown in the first 2 rounds and then the knockout in 3...

Now, Ryan might just get steamrolled by Biden...they only have one debate....

I wonder how much influence the debates actually have on the outcome. Most people have already made up their minds and will hear what they want to hear.

I think the key to this election is to get out the votes. That's why Republican Governors are trying so hard to suppress minority votes.

Yes he DID debate in 2002 when he ran for Gov.! I don't know WHAT kind of debater he is; but I can only imagine his debating skills are closer to Porky Pig than Daniel Webster! emoticon

Did he not have to debate anyone when he ran for Governor?

Anyone with any sense wouldn't have had any type of high expectations for Mitt in the first place regardless of who he was debating...but let's ALLOW them to use these excuses for the first debate...what will be the excuse they use for debates 2 and 3?

when somebody has come out on all sides of a question depending on his audience on any given occasion, it's gonna be wicked interesting to see whether he chooses answers from column A, column B or column C during the debates..yo, Dude..with the truth you get egg roll! Continue with your easily checkable lies in front of the whole nation and you just get egg on your face.

It will be hard for Mitt to remember which is his official position on a given issue at the time of the debate.

At least they acknowledge (gagging all the way, no doubt) that the President is a brilliant speaker -- which he is.

They will try to find a way to blame Pres. Obama; bc HE is a better DEBATER than Mitt!
As if it is Pres. Obama's fault that Mitt can't form an original thought!

How many debates were there during the primaries? I'd say Romney is pretty experienced. They are all trying to get their excuses done early.

They are just trying to lower expectations for Romney's debate SOOOO low so if he even remains standing afterwards, he will look good to people.

Maybe his advisers can do for MITT what was done for Mr Ed (the talking horse). Put something on his mouth that makes it APPEAR to be moving; & have a GIFTED SPEAKER/DEBATER hide behind the curtains & DEBATE FOR HIM!
It's not like the Repubs are against CHEATING &/or STEALING! LOL emoticon
