President Barack Obama’s top campaign adviser pledged Thursday morning that there would be “adjustments” in strategy before Obama faces off against Mitt Romney in the second debate.
But those adjustments won’t be massive, David Axelrod said. Rather, it will be the type of tinkering one would expect from a candidate trying to improve upon his listless, widely panned performance in the first debate Wednesday night.
“It is like the playoffs in sports — you evaluate after every contest and you make adjustments,” Axelrod said in a conference call with reporters. “And I’m sure that we will make adjustments. I don’t see us adding huge amounts of additional prep time. I think … there are some strategic judgments that have to be made and we will make them.”
