What Obama absolutely needs to point out at this last debate.

Obama needs to explain to people in the simplest terms possible the number of Bush people working with Romney. I am not sure of the exact numbers (perhaps one of you can fill them in) but he has about 7 people from the Bush team working as his economic advisors. We all know where they got us, and Romney's plan is almost exactly the same.
Beyond that, he has about 7 more of Bush's people working as his foreign policy advisors. If you love endless wars, these are your people.
The biggest problem with all this is that the average voter does not know about all this and the Prez only has one more chance to explain it to them. Of everything said about this election in the past year, the most compelling is when PBO says "We cannot go back to what got us here in the first place".
These "minor" details need to be spelled out in the simplest terms possible for the last big audience on Monday.

2. I agree

He needs to make clear that this is going to be a return to the war-mad Bush years. I hope he doesn't hold back on that, because clearly, people aren't paying attention to what Romney and his advisors are saying on the foreign policy front. It's Bush II. Obama needs to not be afraid of offending people with that.

3. Yes.

I know it sounds bad, but it's time for some good old-fashioned fear mongering. And since it would be based in truth, I have no problem with it whatsoever. I said something similar last night in GD.

6. You are right. 70% of his foreign policy team are neocons from the Bush admin


He *HAS* to point that out.
