15. Yes, because the ONLY 2 choices are to be ineffective and weak

or look like a bully/liar who has had to much caffeine.

The third choice would have been to calmly point out the lies. Or at least say, "So, Mr. Romney, are you saying you've changed your mind about your own plan again?" He would have only had to point out one or 2 lies. The President's 'zinger' was a little too nuanced for most of the undecideds, who, let's face it, must be incredibly dense to start with if they are still undecided. Plain language, calmly pointing out the lies and maybe saying, after the zillionth time Romney pointed out the 90 billion for Green energy, "That 90 billion created XX amount of jobs here in America. Are you suggesting those people shouldn't have jobs?" Or whatever. Play their game, calmly twist their own words. Not hard when you have lived among them (grew up with that type, lol, it's like second nature to me).
