President Obama is working on giving more concise answers as part of his preparation for the first presidential debate on Wednesday, according to a White House pool report.
Jen Psaki, traveling press secretary for the Obama campaign, said that the president is working on paring down his answers during a press gaggle en route to Nevada Sunday, where Obama will prepare for the first debate.
[Psaki] said that the president had a tendency to give longer, substantive answers "it's just his nature, that is something really we are working on."
Psaki also said the president would not be focusing on "zingers," which reports indicate Mitt Romney is preparing:
"We also saw reports that Mitt Romney and his team have been working on zingers and special lines for months. That is not what the president's focus is on. If you are expecting that, that is probably not what he is going to deliver on. He is speaking directly to the American people and we know what they want to hear is what his plan is for moving the country forward."
