President Obama will use tomorrow’s debate as another opportunity to speak directly to the American people about his specific plans to move our country forward. Romney has no specific plans, so he’s practicing “zingers” to attack the President and score political points. Voters want to hear them offer plans to lift the country up, not tear each other down.
· President Obama is looking forward to tomorrow’s debate, where he’ll continue his conversation with the American people about his specific plans to move us forward – like creating a million new manufacturing jobs, doubling our exports, cutting our oil imports in half and reducing the deficit in a balanced way that protects the middle class.
· Romney, who has no specific plans, sees these debates differently. He plans to attack the President. News reports about Romney’s extensive debate preparations say he has even been practicing “zingers.”
· But voters won’t judge these contests by who lands the most punches. They’re tuning in to learn more about how the President and Romney specifically propose to lift the country up, not hear them tear each other down.
· Chris Christie said Romney will do “extraordinarily well” in the debate and use it to “restart” the race. To do that, Romney will have to provide specific details about his plans on the economy, jobs, health care and many other issues – especially after his convention speech was widely panned for its lack of specifics.
