Is Romney suitably conservative enough? You dance with the one you brung! Romney can beat Obama-- let's gather the troops, focus on the REAL problem, and turn out this Leftist wealth transfer, Big Guvment loser! NO MORE President Food Stamp/Downgrade, Pied Piper of Unwanted Change, Wizard of Ozbama! VOTE Romney!
Jim Lehrer was effective in one area as the moderator of the first Presidential Debate of 2012.  That is, he convinced the audience to not be a factor by remaining generally quiet.  While he was not very effective in controlling the candidates, Lehrer’s style seemed to work out well in facilitating his primary goal of drawing out ideological contrasts.
