Mr Romney's recipe for debate success--

Mr. Romney’s team has concluded that debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers that he has memorized and has been practicing on aides since August. His strategy includes luring the president into appearing smug or evasive about his responsibility for the economy.

and so it goes:

Romney: "Oh yeah? Well *your* dad came from AFRICA! (Inside voice: zing!)"

Obama: "And your dad came from Mexico...."

Romney: "Inside voice: Why didn't I see that coming?)"

Obama: "...Immigrants built this country, as a group. They built that."

Romney: "I'm going to fire somebody and make myself feel better."

Obama: "I think you should have used your inside voice for that one."
