“On Wednesday night Mitt Romney is going to be standing on the same stage as the president of the United States. And I am telling you David, come Thursday morning the entire narrative of this race is going to change," a confident Christie told NBC’s David Gregory. He says the public is only beginning to pay attention to  and says the debate will be a "restart" to the respective White House campaigns.

Christie jabbed at President Obama, accusing him of wanting to "run out the clock" until Election Day. "“The president’s happy talk for the next 36 days is not going to anesthetize the American people,” the New Jersey Republican said.

Obama advisor David Plouffe, appearing after Christie,  says the  Romney campaign is purposely setting the bar high for the debate and accused the media of being "anxious to write the Romney recovery and comeback story.”
