Flustered with the Facts

Mitt Romney has gotten a lot of advice for tonight’s debate. Here’s mine, for what it’s worth: Briefly describe the economic and fiscal crisis that the president has brought us to and detail your best three to five ideas to get us out of it (in a way that makes sense to families, not just economists). Don’t be defensive about yourself or your record, and be prepared to cheerfully call Mr. Obama on any of his tall tales.

To puncture his illusion of “likability,” why not throw out a salient quote or two from Bob Woodward’s devastating new book, The Price of Politics, about the president’s appalling lack of leadership? Mr. Obama has very thin skin; I’d love to see him flustered with the facts.
