I am a Dem and my advise to the champ is talk to the people and lay out what he and our Dems have accomplished for the people and what we need to do to finish the job. As the President executes his plan he should let his opponent punch himself out. The more Romney talks the more likely he is to knock himself out.
Romney job is to survive by not having a Palin moment. They say he has been studying new jabs ("zingers") like "their you go again" to change the game on the champ and show himself as a man of the people. I predict that with the first good right cross from the President, Romney like any punch drunk fighter, will revert to his old rich guy style.
Sometimes a fighter's corner can do more harm then good especially, if they have had too much tea. When stepping in the ring with the defending heavy weight champion of the world you don't need zingers, you need a knock out policy. So the question is can the contender deliver a Policy KO?
Well tomorrow one thing is for sure, we will see what Mitt is made of under pressure. What do you think will happen?
