10/16 – Romney vs. Obama: Round 2 tonight
Here we go again, Barack versus Mitt. This time, however, the Dem pundits assert BO will bring his ‘A’ game. GOPers say MR just needs to hold his own after trouncing the champ last time. What do you think? How will BT play out in this second heavyweight match tonight?
Yes, all things written by BTI forecasting the first match, plus the VP debate, still hold true for this upcoming fracas. But with BO’s camp already stating he’s coming with new weapons, how do we factor this? Of course, if legit skeletons are brought from the proverbial closet, a debate is up for grabs—even if a born CEO and #15 FCIL is challenging its very opposite, a bashful #2 BEAR. Also, as we witnessed in the VP debate, if a contestant throws enough punches—regardless if legit or not—he may appear successful if his opponent doesn’t get time or have sufficient knowledge to refute false claims conceived in the moment.
Both BO and MR are fallible, to say it mildly. Neither is without blame to some degree. Yet once again, no matter how much they train or are coached by debate mentors, they CANNOT change their indelible BTs. Once again, BTI guarantees the world will see both the #13 FCIR and the #15 FCIL in living color. If BTI’s Director JN were the moderator, he says he’d bring out a tennis racket, golf club, basketball, and a baseball, and have each candidate also demonstrate to the world the wide distinctions between their #’s 13 and 15 motor skills! Wouldn’t that be a kick?! If allowed, BO would clearly show Q1, Right-brained loosey-goosey movements whereas MR would unequivocally exhibit mechanical, technically sound body actions. What’s funny about this guarantee and fact is this is how their minds work, too! Any objective observers, especially with BT knowledge, have already identified these established and contrasting traits between the two.
Yes, opposite political and ideological beliefs will be front and center, also providing a clear distinction between the two candidates. Yet if it were just up to inborn BT and which man is cerebrally most capable of leading with structure, caution, and orderly intellectual thought, Mr. Romney would win hands down. Conversely, if we’re looking for a charmer, a great actor (yet needs a teleprompter so he doesn’t go astray…why not give it to Joe, too?), and a competent defense lawyer, then Mr. Obama’s the guy.
BTI’s only uncertainty is what new mud will be slung Tuesday night and whether it’s truly made of dirt. No one knows until the bell rings. It is moderated again by another #13 FCIR, an avowed liberal, CNN’s Candy Crowley. Once again, it’ll be two against one, but #15s like MR don’t mind that as long as they have time to respond, which most likely will not happen, unfortunately. Enjoy the fight, especially between the two very different Brain Types.
And let’s consider a final thought: Though the average voter doesn’t know the functions of the Right brain from the Left any more than the distinctions between sweet potatoes and yams, it is no accident that only two of our last 11 Presidents have been Right brainers, and the other one wasn’t even elected into office: Lyndon Johnson, #5 FEIR. The #13 FCIR is as intellectual as any (save the #14 BCIR), but their discursive, go-with-the-flow style and off-the-cuff speech usually spooks voters when it comes to occupying the White House. Yet let’s not forget, there is a #15 sleeping and dining regularly at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., but her first name is Michelle.
