Romney has played down Obama's likability and the advantages of his friendly personality. Perhaps because he knows he is has a reputation of being not well liked and he's trying to compensate. Romney is well aware that these debates will be a decisive point in his campaign and has been training for them.
In Romney's own words on Good Morning America, he said he "thinks the challenge that I'll have is that the president tends to, how shall I say it, to say things that aren't true." (Is that the same thing as saying that the president would lie?) He has this worked out though.... he said "I've looked at prior debates. And in that kind of case, it's difficult to say, well am I going to spend my time correcting things that aren't quite accurate? Or am I going to spend my time talking about the things I want to talk about?" When asked about what course he'd take, Romney said "well, it's a challenge you always have. And that's a judgement you make".
If you can make any sense out of all that babbling, you will remember that in the past Governor Romney has often not answered questions put to him and always talked about what he wanted to talk about whether it's in a debate, or a news interview. That's probably because the rich kids can do whatever they want. He's wealthy, you know! Not to worry, he has an ace in the hole........
