Romney pins hopes on televised debate

BALANCING ACT:The Republican presidential hopeful, whose campaign suffered a disastrous month, faces a challenge in persuading voters he is ‘ready for the job’

AP, WASHINGTON

Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki stresses that Romney has been preparing for the debates with “more focus than any presidential candidate in modern history.” Sketching sky-high stakes, Psaki says the Republicans fully expect the debates to be “their turning point” in the campaign.

The president himself mocked the idea that Romney can still alter the campaign dynamic.

“Every few days he keeps on saying he’s going to reboot this campaign and they’re going to start explaining very specifically how this plan is going to work — and then they do not,” he said last week while campaigning in Virginia.
