    he shows in his stump speeches to the debate.  Romney and the party he represents have long stopped being about civil disagreements in policy and instead have become all about lies and distortion of facts to fit their narrative.  Obama needs to be able to call the bullshit bullshit, while still looking like he is above the fight.  He manages to do that in his stump speeches so if he can bring in some of that in the next debate, he should be fine.  At this point, the voters have for the most part decided and a good or bad debate performance won't matter all that much numbers-wise for either candidate.
