DNC predicts Romney debate win in battle of lowered expectations

It’s a further lowering of expectations ahead of the first debate in Denver  next week.

Mitt Romney Steve Pearce event 057

Woodhouse says the way the DNC sees it, challengers win the first debate when  they are up against incumbents.

Mitt  Romney has had a lot more time to debate, the president has not debated in  the past four years in terms, of a campaign debate. I think the president will  hold his own, but he’s not known for sound bites. And these are 60 second, 90  second responses.”

Woodhouse says Democrats are “trying to be realistic about expectations”  because the president is “lucky to be able to devote three consecutive hours to  debate preparation.”

Woodhouse also paints Romney as a good debater and gives him credit for  “dispatching Newt  Gingrich” who Woodhouse considers a pretty good debater.

Woodhouse said he wants to see Obama “talk from his heart about where the  country was and where he wants to take the country.”

He’s looking to see the president connect with Americans during the debate,  the way Woodhouse thinks Obama was able to do in Charlotte during the Democratic  National Convention.

The first debate will focus on the economy, and Woodhouse wants specifics  from Romney on his economic plans.

“It’s going to be interesting to see if Mitt  Romney will bring more than just zingers to get under the president’s skin,”  he said. “It would be nice if he came with some substance for example like his  tax plan or his plan to voucher-size Medicare.”

  1. Interesting read. I was watching with some fascination from this side of the pond (2am start, ugh!) and thought that Mitt Romney came across ‘presidentially’ and that Barack Obama had none of his 2008 fight about him: with the possible exception of the President’s barbed comment about Romney’s difficulties in sitting down on Day 1 with Democrats at the same time as trying to dismantle Obamacare.

    I’m going to be following from a British perspective on my blog: have a look at my thoughts ahead of last night’s debate: @tommygilchrist: Change we (still) believe in? http://t.co/keNP1iqF
