Obama, Romney face big hurdle in town hall format: unpredictability

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney step into a more free-wheeling town-hall style debate on Tuesday night, a setting that has given the two coolly intellectual candidates some trouble in the past.

Both will have to recalibrate their approaches from their first encounter on Oct. 3, which was won by Romney.

    I can predict that we'll hear a bunch of LIES from Willard The Tax Evader. Let's see if Candy Crowley will call him out on them. I highly doubt it.

    I really hope Obama does well! So much at stake for this country.
    We cannot take much more of this radical GOP.

    So you think the role of a moderator is to actively take the side of one candidate over the other??? Isn't the duty of OBAMA to make his own case? We've been told for years now how smart his is? Maybe we can have Michelle also come on stage and fight for the empty suit too?!!! hahahahaha!!!

  5. ThinkAgain: Hey, networks, fact-check the debates in real-time and put it in the crawl!

    President Obama will connect and provide thoughtful answers; Mittens will be a wooden, lying dweeb, hoping that folks won't notice how hopelessly unqualified he is to be POTUS.

    BTW, here's my question: Gov. Romney, do you still believe that "corporations are people, my friend" and if so, please tell us the gender of Bain Capital.

    The article should read "How is Mittens gonna lie his way out of question asked by the audience". Obama better counter every lie Mittens comes up with what he said in the past during his conservative months prior to moderate Mittens showing. What a flake Mittens is, I still cant believe people caught him saying all this stuff about the middle class ad they still vote for him. This is why I have no faith in the political system.
