I just heard on Fox News that the great majority of people believe Obama will win the debates. This is one of life's mysteries to me. I've watched Obama over his presidency and one thing stands out to me: he stumbles a lot when he doesn't have his teleprompters. People talk about how eloquent he is. I beg to differ. Eloquence is the ability to speak with clarity and conviction without a written script or speech. When Obama wanders off-script, he tends to put his foot in his mouth.
I believe President Obama's oratorical skills are vastly overrated, as is his intelligence. I plan to watch the debates and I fully expect that Obama will have certain talking points that he will repeat over and over, while failing to answer the questions. I also expect to hear a lot of lies from Obama. I hope Mitt Romney calls him on it. When it comes to Barack Obama, I've never seen anyone who can talk so much while saying so little.
