Here are some items that many may wish the POTUS will deploy against Romney in the upcoming debates.
"Governor Romney, you claim that you will be an effective, job-creating leader of this nation, relying on your experience as a CEO job-maker. Yet as governor of the great state of Massachusetts, you ran for only one term, because your popularity was so low by the end that you knew you could not win reelection, and did not want to go down to defeat. One reason you were so unpopular was because under your guidance,
"And while we are at it. Will you finally tell Americans at long last how many people you fired when at Bain? And how many jobs you shipped overseas? And how many small businesses and their mom and pop owners you put out of business with the chain franchises like Staples you promoted? (For discussion on this see click here.) You have been claiming to be a skilled creator of jobs and small businesses, so surely you can show us how many of both you created compared to how many you wiped out, right? Didn't you keep count? If you don't have hard figures, then why should we trust you, when you proved so bad at creating jobs when you governed
"Dear voters. Think about it. The governor is going to lose the election big time in the state he ran just a few years ago. Why is that? And he is likely to lose in his home state, where his father was a popular advocate of the automobile industry that his son wanted to toss into the ditch a few years ago. Why is that?

"Governor Romney. You have quite correctly condemned the hateful statement by Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin about how women who are "legitimately" raped almost never get pregnant. But he is still running for the office, with considerable support from your party as it strives to win control of the Senate. Are you willing, here and now, to urge the good people of the state of Missouri to vote to reelect Senator McCaskill simply to keep Akin out of the august body he has no place aspiring to be in? To put principle above political expediency?
"Governor Romney. You are opposed to abortion. Why? Because you think it is murder? If so, then do you really think that women who have abortions are murderers? Do you really think they should be punished as criminals? After all, if you don't make abortion a criminal homicide then you can't ban it. Governor, don't you trust the women of
"Who are you, governor? Seriously, you say one thing at one time and exactly the opposite at the other so often that we have to ask. Who is the real Romney? Now, at the last debate, I admit I was kind of befuddled. To the point a lot of the time I had to mull things over more than I liked because I was trying to figure out what you had just said since it was likely to be the opposite of what you said a week or two before. I expected Tea Party Romney to show up. But you had gone all Etch-A-Sketch. The Republican candidate who showed up was moderate
"You are now saying we should arm the Syrian rebels. But when I intervened in
