We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Obama cramming for three days on how to be President.
An incumbent President should have a built in advantage in a debate, because he has been dealing with policy for nearly four years. The first debate showed that Romney had a better command of policy details, while Obama simply repeated recycled talking points from his four years of speechifying. No surprise Obama needs to cram.
