Peter Johnson Jr: Romney and Obama Need to 'Back Off' Each Other at Debate
Fox News legal analyst Peter Johnson Jr. brought his debate expertise — as well as a couple of cardboard friends — to Tuesday morning’s edition of Fox and Friends, where he voiced his suggestions for the contenders in tonight’s presidential debate.
“The first thing they need to do is empathize and energize,” recommended Johnson, saying that both Romney and Obama must win over undecided voters with understanding and enthusiasm. He then went on to outline his “back off” rule,
in which he tells his cardboard stand-ins to give each other personal space and not to “get in the face” of the other candidate.
“Americans are looking for comfort, they’re looking for the candidate to confront the issues, to confront it hard, but at the same time, take a command of the issues,” he continued.
And in the end, Johnson said that voters need to seriously consider the prospect of a presidential term with both contenders. “We need to take Governor Romney into our home tonight, we need to take President Obama into our home tonight,” concluded Johnson. “We need to say, ‘Yeah, I’m comfortable with him being in my home for the next four years.’”
