Robert Gibbs, adviser to the Obama campaign, promised supporters that President Obama would turn in a very different debate performance in his second debate against Mitt Romney and to channel their “nervous energy” into helping re-elect President Obama during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Wednesday.
“This president’s going to bring a much different game to this debate,” Gibbs said, referring to the Oct. 16 presidential debate. “I guarantee you you’ll see an energetic, enthusiastic president in that next debate.”
Gibbs also asked supporters to get involved.
“I would tell them to take whatever nervous energy they have and whatever hand-wringing they will do over the next 24 to 48 hours and put that into a real effort to get this president re-elected,” Gibbs said, referring to Obama supporters. “Get out there and register somebody to vote. Go to a phone bank. Make sure you tell your friends what’s at sake in this race… Let’s go out there and stop hand wringing and get to work.”
