Democratic National Committee predicts Romney will win first debate vs. Obama
It's a further lowering of expectations ahead of the first debate in Denver next week. Democratic National Committee spokesman Brad Woodhouse tells Fox News he thinks Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will win.
Woodhouse says the way the DNC sees it, challengers win the first debate when they are up against incumbents.
"Mitt Romney has had a lot more time to debate, the president has not debated in the past four years in terms, of a campaign debate. I think the president will hold his own, but he's not known for sound bites. And these are 60 second, 90 second responses."
Woodhouse says Democrats are "trying to be realistic about expectations" because the president is "lucky to be able to devote three consecutive hours to debate preparation."

Yup, you read that right...
You just can't make this stuff up....
Bozo's been president for the last four years... How much preparation does he need to to defend himself???
Well what they said is true... the president hasn't debated in four years while Romney has been in the circuit for months now.. that's why they expect Romney to basically "put on a better show" in the first debate .. it makes perfect sense to me..
While I think Obama probably won't be at 100% in the first debate, I don't see him losing it .. Romney has been sticking his foot in his mouth a bit too much lately.
