In Debates, Newt Gingrich’s Real Target Is Obama
« on: November 16, 2011, 01:30:38 PM »
It was almost painful watching McCain but I'd love to see Gingrich wipe the floor with BO.

In each debate, he keeps mentioning how he wants to challenge the president to as many Lincoln-Douglas-style debates as possible. And if the presidential baloney won’t march into the Gingrichian grinder? Well then, the grinder will come to the baloney. Gingrich vows to follow Obama on the stump, offering rapid response after every presidential utterance.

It’s a brilliant tactic. Watching Gingrich walk onto the debate stage, it’s like seeing a great beast returned to its natural habitat. They should play “Born Free” whenever he comes out from behind the curtain.

The tactic works because the unifying conviction among hard-core Republican voters is that Obama is both overrated and full of it, a man pretending to be presidential and intellectual rather than the real thing. (Ironically, Gingrich has long been the subject of similar criticisms, mostly from the left.) Gingrich’s promise to goad Obama into a fair fight is beyond tantalizing.

No way will Obama agree to it, but Gingrich's backup plan is brilliant. It could be spinned into an advantage for Obama for those who do not listen to the content of the speeches. At some point their paths will diverge substantially depending on state polling.

you are correct in asserting that bo will seek to limit debate, he cannot debate his record, none of it.....
