According to all prognosticators, there is a great deal at stake with
respect to tonight's first presidential debate. Many students of history
and politics are having difficulty understanding why President Obama is
still leading in the polls with persistent high unemployment, anemic
GDP growth, a foreign policy that is in flames, a $16 trillion national
debt and general despair about the future run rampant in this country.

able to resist pressure from the media and Obama to talk about
irrelevant and diversionary issues, he should be able to make
Although this sounds like a simple analysis, our president is quite clever and will use all of his trickery to remove the spotlight from his failures. He will try to emphasize any historical shortfalls of any Republican and associate all those problems with candidate Romney.
