    dressed in a completely different persona for this debate.

    In other words, he's going to morph into a peace loving diplomat.  

    Obama should not let him get away with it.

    •  with Bolton and the Boys behind Willard, they (6+ / 0-)

      will not let him morph into any kind of a dove.  Their base would not either.  Willard thinks he's tough and can run through Obama.  Bring it on Willard.

      •  I agree. There are already many Republicans (1+ / 0-)

        holding their noses at the idea of voting for Romney and the TPs hate him.

        The slightest sign of weakness and he's lost millions of the kind of voters who thing foreign relations should consist of "whupping the ass" of any country that doesn't fall into line.

        So tough they're willing to send other peoples' kids to kill and die for them.

        There's tough, there's Army tough, and then there's Republican tough. Cough.

      for a republican. They are chestbeaters and want everyone to know they are the biggest, baddest ass in the room.

      War with Iran or Syria is where Romney has to be, which makes Obama's job a little easier. His reply, is like Biden's with Ryan.

      "You want war with Iran" which most of America do not.
      So it makes Romney look dangerous.

      Mitt [sabre-rattling, tough-talking, bomb-Iran] Romney the measured, pacifistic diplomatist, contrasted with Barack Obama: bloodstained warmonger!

      Yeah, that'll play really well...

      if we ALL suddenly develop a severe case of Romnesia!

      That's what he did in the first debate. Show up and say whatever the hell you think the moderates/undecided voters want to hear, while anyone who has paid the tiniest bit of attention over the past months/years marvels at your duplicity.  

      I don't think that strategy will fly this time, though. This debate is far more focused than the first, where all he had to do (and did) was look reasonably not-crazy to those just tuning in the election, and there's just so much Romney fail out there on foreign policy matters. I'm sure he will try to sound all diplomatic and statesmanlike, but he's in the President's wheelhouse here, and as has been mentioned before, people don't like wishy-washy BS in foreign policy and security matters.

      Fingers crossed it proves to be an epic whooping for Romney.
