Presidential, vice presidential 2012 debate schedule


Via Taegan, we get the debate schedule. Each debate will last 90 minutes. There will be three presidential debates and one vice presidential. More details at the link:

First presidential debate (October 3, 2012, Denver, CO)

The debate will focus on domestic policy [...]

Vice presidential debate (October 11, 2012, Danville, KY)

The debate will cover both foreign and domestic topics [...]

Second presidential debate (October 16, 2012, Hempstead, NY)

The second presidential debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which citizens will ask questions of the candidates on foreign and domestic issues. [...]

Third presidential debate (October 22, Boca Raton, FL)

The format for the debate will be identical to the first presidential debate and will focus on foreign policy.

Hopefully, trying to debate someone as accomplished, bright, and measured as President Obama will make Romney look even more idiotic than he did today and has to date.

However my initial prediction: Just as there were low expectations of GW Bush, there will be the same of Romney; so, like Bush, he'll get extra points for simply surviving and even surprising everyone with a few good comebacks and lines. He'll be feisty and will try to appear tough and defiant, trying to gain respect the way Leroy Newton Gingrich did.

None of that will obscure his obvious weaknesses, but to some voters who are just waking up to the race, it will be enough.

And now, because it’s election season and we’ll be extra busy, we GottaAsk. We do so reluctantly and would love to reach our goal so we can stop asking already!
