|I wonder how many of these Christie can eat?|
So, even though it's been a "tough few weeks for Romney" get this, "here's the great news for Republicans, he's going to do extraordinarily well." Christie spouts. The really funny part is that he points out how well Romney did when challenged by Gingrich and Perry. Which makes me wonder how low can you go? Perry could not name three agencies of the government. Oops! Gingrich is just plain batshit crazy. So how is Romney going to be able to debate a very gifted speaker like President Obama? Here's how, with a secret weapon known as the "zinger"
"Mr. Romney’s team has concluded that debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers that he has memorized and has been practicing on aides since August. His strategy includes luring the president into appearing smug or evasive about his responsibility for the economy."
That's the strategy. Since Romney has no real platform other than pleasing the extreme right. He's going to drop his "zingers" like a "Hail Mary" football play, and come out victorious. As long as he can "create a moment" all will be well. With the amount of moments and zingers he's created during his campaign, he'd do better just to avoid opening his mouth at all.
Jim Lehrer, from PBS is going to moderate, tomorrow night. Great, another boring old white guy. He does great work on PBS, but I would like to see some younger people get a chance, maybe all the disenfranchised younger voters would get more interested. Candy Crowley (the token woman) will also moderate another of the debates, and Bob Schieffer, of Face The Nation, another show that's been on too long with boring old white guys. I am going to try and watch on Wednesday, but to tell the truth, I can't stand watching Romney, although there might be a chance he'll do something freaky like have a tantrum. I kind of doubt it, but he seems to have a low frustration level.
The thing about Zingers is that they are a sugary snack, devoid of any nutrition. Sounds like a perfect metaphor for Romney's lack of substance. Or else it's a reference to Marie Antoinette, "Let them eat cake."
