24. They would be supporting Rmoney already

Trying to appeal to the middle - I don't think DU really knows how that is done. Similar advice in 2008 led to nothing as Obama won.

As to the Gish Gallop - imagine Obama saying, "look, you've thrown so many lies out there, I can't respond to them all so I will go on to state my position." I can't imagine Obama saying it or his advisors advising it. They know what they are trying to do. Neither side is going to have big conversions made at this point, and anyone who genuinely is on the fence is going to consider more than just one debate. The population that would think Rmoney "won" here and should be voted for is a population either so small and to be unlikely to be properly registered or a population made up of Tea Partiers. There's no reason to panic and little reason to think Obama would gain votes by saying something just as mild as I quoted above.
