    How would you Sell Obama and Romney if you were Campaign Manager?

    If you were Campaign Manager for Romney how would you sell him to the American voter? What would be your arguments? What about President Obama, how would you sell him? List 5 best arguments for both.

    I would tell Obama to let his academic image go; to relax and smile more. I would tell him to stop saying "I" so much and start saying "we".  And then I would tell him to talk about his agenda for four more years and to explain how he hopes to move forward.

    I would tell Romney to walk away and come back when he has discovered some humility. Sorry, can't come up with five things for Romney.

      "I" instead of "we". That's quite observant and advice that Obama could certainly profit from. Yeah, Romney's tough. His comments are killing him, that's about the worst thing you can say about a politician.

    I'd sell them into slave labor in China and start over.

      I was about to say ship them out and start over, but it appears you beat me to the punch.

      Chinese slave laborers aren't allowed to be president of the U.S.

    I'd sell Obama (for a pittance) to the first buyer who came along  and I'd keep Romney because I can get 4 good years out of him, maybe 8. See I'm looking "FORWARD".

      I'm not even going to try to answer this question because I couldn't possibly come up with an answer better than yours.

      If "doubling down on trickle down" is looking forward...

      Looking foward with distorted vision, in my opinion.

    I would sell them both, off the sale rack, marked CLEARANCE, no guarantee, no return.......Buy one get one half price. ( No gift wrapping on sale items)

      That hit the funny-bone. Nice answer but I somehow don't believe either could get elected by following your advice

    Romney is hard to sell, because there isn't much good about him.  Also, the way I would attempt to sell him wouldn't be how his political handlers do.  I am a liberal, but I will do my best to make a mock campaign strategy.

    1) Bain business experience.  I would tell Romney to focus on his experience as a CEO.  He could claim he reached the highest position in the private sector, and it was not by accident.  It gave him understanding in what companies need to be successful.

    2) Massachusetts Governor.  He could claim he was elected as a Republican, and still was able to govern without gridlock.  This shows he can reach across the aisle.  Throw in the Olympics here also.

    3) Moderate (I wouldn't make him become a social bigot, but this also assumes he is past the primaries, which I am completely ignoring).  Romney could say he was in favor of gay marriage and a woman's right to choose, along with curbing carbon emissions RESPONSIBLY, thereby bucking GOP orthodoxy, but showing independent voters he is not a partisan ideologue. 

    4) Being wealthy. He is a great position to explain just how much of a tax burden the rich have to pay.  He could use his tax returns as an example of everything that is wrong with America, and call for lower taxes on ALL.  His budget plan would need to be framed as creating private sector opportunities, rather than firing government employees (he may be susceptible to attacks here because of his gaffe about liking to fire people).

    5) Social work.  Romney should highlight any kind of charity work he did while on his Mormon mission, along with anything done recently (this would be done by operatives, not Romney himself, to avoid looking conceited).

    Take it for what it's worth, which may not be much!

      I think he should give you the job. He seems to be quite good at finding ways to lose.
