Please post your suggest for things President Obama should say to Rmoney in the debates

I think Rmoney has a temper and I think PBO can light the man up.

What would you suggest if you were prepping President Obama for this debate?

Thinks like;

"...leaders who *actually* care about the people..."

".. the Ryan/Romney campaign...."

"How can a waitress like Sally who lives in a $400/mo apartment trust a president who spends TWO YEARS of her rent on a bet?"

Like say he had to prepare for 6 different opponents because you never know which Romney is going to show up. Bring up his past positions in every single category.

9. I want to see the president light him up.

Romney doesn't like to be questioned about anything. CEO-types can't stand to have their authority questioned.

Something like 'Why are you always ready to spout off with war talk' should make the veins in his neck bulge.

12. Mr Romney, why should the American people tolerate different rules for the rich and the other 99%

why should it be 'the most important job' in the world when your wife stays at home....and 'stay at home mom's need the dignity of work' for poor moms? Do you think that children of the poor don't need mother's as much as wealthy children?

why should the middle class pay 2x as much in their income tax rate than you do?

could you please explain why people who are retired are 'not taking responsibility for their lives?

Mr Romney if you believe in work being rewarded, can you explain why wages are taxed higher than investment income?

30. Ask him who assumes responsibilities for seniors

when Medicaid is trashed. Are families responsible for all the expenses of their indigent, elderly relatives or do the poor old coots just get kicked out on the street?

I'm sure President Obama can phrase this question more elegantly.

35. As president, will you continue employ the economic

philosophy of creative destruction that you did with Bain, to harvest corporate profits for investors, resulting in layoffs at companies like GST Steel, Ampad, Dade International, etc?

(naturally, he can't say no because he wrote a book on it. He'll go on about how it is a good and natural thing, etc).

Here's the follow up:

Unlike what you did at Bain, will you as president do anything to help or insist on their employer to help the laid off employees to land on their feet with their health insurance, pensions, retraining and some assistance to find employment? Or are they just part of the 47% who you can't, and I quote "convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."?

And since you can't convince the 47%, can you convince the 53% that they should take some responsibility for what they've done to the 47% in these situations?

The key word being "issues". Repukes only want to talk about personalities and gossip, issues drive them crazy as they're wrong on all of them and have been for more than a century.

41. I think he definitely needs to get on education!

Romney has struck out in education. The President should talk about the reforms that are going on all around the country. He needs to bring attention to student loans. He needs to focus on what Romney's plan would do to people who are less fortunate.
