"Almost Impossible To Win?"

Team Romney has low expectations for tonight's debate. Huh? The old saying about the law reads: "If the facts are against you, argue the law. If the law is against you argue the facts. If the facts and the law are against you, jump up and down and scream like hell."

Can Obama jump up and down and scream that effective?
Mitt Romney has a clear-eyed and self-aware view of his chances in the final debate Monday, according to top advisers: It will be almost impossible to win, since the debate is focused exclusively on foreign policy, a strength for President Barack Obama.

This view isn’t merely about expectations-setting. Romney’s top advisers authentically worry that the swing voters they need to woo care little about foreign affairs right now. And, even if they did, the differences between the two men on many of the highest-profile issues — ending the Afghan war and the bloodshed in Syria — are too slight to draw sharp distinctions.
