5. I'm not worried about debates at all....

Romney "won" the GOP primary debates only because he was the lesser of the losers but he didn't do that well. He got unhinged quite a few times. And he was confident in those debates. Now he's under pressure to do good and he'll try too hard and it will show. If people don't trust you, which the polls have indictated, it doesn't really matter what you say and how elegantly you say it.

Everybody knows Obama's style...no surprises. They trust him. In light of Ann's concern over Mitt's mental well-being....maybe the debates will be too stressful for him. He gets flustered. In contrast, Obama is always cool, calm and confident in what he has to say.
