Who will Obama pick to play Mitt Romney in next debate practice?

In the wake of Obama’s disastrous debate performance last week, Michael Moore tweeted:  “This is what happens when u pick John Kerry as your debate coach.”

In an e-mail, a reader “bet” that Kerry wouldn’t “be back.”  Who, he wondered, would be next.  Who indeed.

So, use the comments section below to weigh in on this matter.  Who should Obama pick to replace John Kerry and play Mitt Romney in his up coming debate practice sessions?  We could pass your suggestions onto the campaign.

  2. If anyone wants a serious answer, it should be someone like Ed Rendell, former governor of PA, who is a down to earth guy and not a Progressive elitist.

  3. OT on the question but This SNL parody of MSNBC is pretty hilarious…

  4. It will be Bill Clinton, to create news, fire up the Dem base and change the narrative.

    Bank on it.

  7. Look Guys, you’re gettin’ this all wrong. Obama’s performance wasn’t half bad. He’s clean and articulate and just had some bad luck. He’ll do great next time with John Kerry coaching – those two make a real swell pair.

  9. Debbie Gynecological Procedure. She can drill him on all the lies he has to tell. And help him practice keeping his face entirely immobile.

  11. Snoop Dog can whip Obama into shape for his second
    debate with the white nigga.

    Or maybe he’d do better simply to send Snoop Dog to debate
    in his place: the two of them appear to have a similar grasp of
    the issues.

  12. Chris Mathews. According to Chris, if Obama had been watching MSNBC, he would have won the debate.

  13. KT beat me to it … that reflection would be the only opponent Mr. Obama would consider as a worthy opponent.

  14. Charlie Crist. Heh.

  15. Actually, please, Chris Matthews …

  16. Rahm Emanuel. He knows Obama’s hot buttons … and since he doesn’t work for Obama any more, he might not be afraid to push them. I hope Rahm has so much to keep him busy in Chicago that he doesn’t take the job, though.

  18. Seriously? Clinton or Lieberman. They’re the only skilled debaters on the Democrat side that can make the Republican case forcefully enough.

  19. The obvious answer: Whoever Valerie Jarrette tells him to use.

  21. Thank you President Obama for proving the American Dream is still possible! You have proven that any person with an average intellect, mediocre language skills, and a poor work ethic, can make it to the top by making good career choices. Hooray for The American Dream!

  22. Will Ferrell, I saw him crush James Carville in a debate once. Carville just gave up.

  23. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The disconnect would keep him on his toes. Or, alternatively, George Soros. In a pinch, he could practice debate with Sandra Fluke.

  24. Too late now, but for the first debate maybe he should have used former White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles.

  25. […] Gay Patriot asks the same question: Who will Obama pick to play Mitt Romney in next debate practice? […]

  27. He’ll be demoralized if he picks Bill Clinton.

    Clinton IS the smooth talker that Obama only thinks he is.

  29. I nominate Levi.

  30. John Edwards? Aside from the obvious PR hit hiring him would bring, he always was a smooth/slippery character, he’s seen O debate firsthand, and would make a good devil’s advocate.

  31. The obvious pick is Stephen Colbert.
