I'm all for the use of mockery in politics. It is effective. But we're not all natural bullies or natural comedians. You can't program the Rubiobot in 2016 any more than you could program the Mittbot in 2012.
Mr. Romney’s team has concluded that debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers that he has memorized and has been practicing on aides since August. His strategy includes luring the president into appearing smug or evasive about his responsibility for the economy.

And you definitely don't inform the press that it's your strategery.
