Nope. It's akin to a runner letting everyone know he will do his best and then saying but there is some word class competition here so it won't be easy. By the way that is what most athletes say.

You've missed the obvious spanner in your metaphorical works!

The GOP have been politicially naive to downright dumb throughout this campaign!

AND.............he's a Mormon - never forget that little detail

yeah yeah yeah. How about getting back to the topic?

So why the sudden back tracking with less than a week to go, NEOCONS? Could it be they saw R in debate prep and realized he's screwed?

Its true that Romney has more experience debating. What he lacks is the experience in one on one debates of this magnitude. I still think he will suprise people if he can keep Obama's dancing (lies) in check.

His religion really seems to bother you. I rarely hear it brought up in the states.

Well you need to mix in different circles then because an issue it is!

Let's see what's wrong with THIS picture

Israel - USA - Palestine - Iran

Peacekeeping between a Mormon - a Jewish and a Muslim leader

Yep - that'll work

It's a windfall around here of backtracking. R was going to KILL O in the debates. Did I misread those posts?

Has there been any other Republican candidate in recent memory whose campaign advisor publicly "set the bar low" for said candidate to come up on top?

Ladies and gentlemen we are witnessing first hand the downward spiral of Romney's campaign!

That sort of thinking is the epitome of the right, and which is one reason why your party will fail in Nov.
