    It is not certain what Etch-a-Sketch will appear as - he has been training with Christie to appear human at town hall style meetings. I am sure their debate team will have another Gish Gallop strategy.

    What POTUS needs to be able to do are two things:
    1. No matter what, show his supporters that he will fight for them till the end - so sometimes this might need a change of strategy if what he has prepared seems not to be effective.

    2. Be able to think on his feet on how to rebut the Gish Gallop - when Lehrer asked broad questions "What is the difference between you on XYZ" - POTUS should have started by saying "I have no idea where Gov. Romney stands because he has taken so many positions on topic XYZ, but here is where I stand"

      Mitt has to train with Chris Christie to appear human. Lots of people don't like Christie BTW, especially Indies.

        since Christie has effectively lied his way through the governorship, he is a perhaps the best partner for Lyin' Mitt!
