Washington DC – URGENT – Just days before his highly anticipated debate with challenger Mitt Romney, President Obama has completely run out of metaphors.
Obama and his campaign in recent days have been putting out word that while they expect Romney to launch some zingers during Wednesday night’s encounter, Obama himself will stick to policy and reasoned explanations of “the facts.”
But White House Dossier can now reveal that the true reason Obama has decided not to say anything clever is that he and his speechwriting team are stuck on the same metaphors.
Have a look and a listen.
The lack of metaphors could be a devastating handicap for the president, as the debates are often remembered for a single line or two out of thousands uttered during the 90-minute affairs.
A Romney spokesman said it was hard to understand why Obama was out of metaphors, given that he’s been able to put Romney on the ropes and is looking to land a knockout punch. The spokesman added that Romney is hardly down for the count and will use the debates to get back on his feet and ultimately take the Belt from Obama.
