    Neither Romney nor Ryan are in any way prepared to debate the President and Vice President.

    •  Funny thing is that (0+ / 0-)

      when they're expected to do badly, but end up only doing slightly better than badly, they still win.

      Setting the bar so low that you can't help but do better has its advantages.  Remember Palin v Biden?  Just because she didn't fall completely flat on her face as expected, she was declared by many as the winner.

      Luckily for us, I keep reading that Rmoney's supposedly a great debator, so that bar is getting set pretty high, creating a  better chance of greater fall.
