Advisers: Obama to Make 'Adjustments' for Next Debate

Friday, 05 October 2012 11:35 AM EDT

Barack Obama’s presidential campaign advisers are suggesting a different candidate will show up at the next debate with GOP challenger Mitt Romney.
 
The comments come in the wake of Obama’s widely panned performance in the first debate that has been criticized as lackluster and disengaged. The campaign advisors tell The Washington Post that president had made a conscious choice not to go toe-to-toe with Romney in the first round.

“He made a choice last night to answer the questions that were asked and to talk to the American people about what we need to do to move forward and not get into serial fact-checking with Governor Romney, which can be a tiring pursuit,” David Axelrod, a senior campaign adviser, said according to the Post.

Axelrod continued, however, that “adjustments” will be made.

“You can’t allow someone to stand there and manhandle the truth about your record and theirs,” Axelrod said according to the Post.
