APREMIER DEBATE COACH in USA POLITICS;
(All NewtonStein "INSPIRED-INERRANT" Bible View!)
POLITIPEDIA™ - BRETT O'DONNELL, PREMIER DEBATE COACH in USA POLITICS!
After the Republican Debate last night in Florida, where Mitt Romney had made amazing improvement since his South Carolina debacle, many newspapers and blogs headlined their debate report something the folloiwng:
Brett O'Donnell "Debate Coach!" Won Republican Debate Last Night!
Who's Brett O'Donnell, you ask? The New York Times explains the story behind the Romney's incredible improvement giving all credit to his campaign's new debate coach: Brett O'Donnell!
Who is Brett O'Donnell?
Mr. O’Donnell is a veteran of presidential debates, having served as a top debate coach to Senator John McCain of Arizona during the 2008 campaign. In that role, he helped prepare Mr. McCain for debates against Mr. Romney and brings those insights to the current sessions.
Mr. O’Donnell helped coach Mrs. Bachmann during her debates as well, but also became a senior strategist for her campaign, likely helping to shape some of the congresswoman’s sharpest attacks, including ones against Mr. Romney.
Last night's debate was brutal for Newt Gingrich, because he wasn't prepared for Romney to change his debate strategy.
**O'Donnell discovered the flaws in Romney's debate performance and eliminated them.
**Further, he gave Romney a specific strategy for that one debate, which is something Romney apparently never had before—at every other debate, his strategy seemed to be "run like you're already the nominee, and then let the clock run out."
Romney's outrage at certain issues seemed so different, it startled people - perhaps even Mitt!
Romney so startled Newt and all other that he won the debate by a huge margin!
He was like a College Summa Cum Laude against children!
In the words of one who was there: "Romney literally crushed Gingrich!"
Debate coach O'Donnell, with his experience prodding at Romney's prior debate performances, proved to be a great addition to the team.
All of a sudden, Gingrich is looking a lot more unelectable now.
If Romney stays with this debate coach . . . he will be the Republican nominee!
But before Romney . . .
. . .PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN 2012: After a great speech on conservative values, U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann stepped into one of her campaign's newest means of transportation: a plain red extended-cab pickup truck.
Holding the door open was Brett O'Donnell, her principal speechwriter, debate coach, message guru, and all-around errand guy - good guy., aBrett is a fellow born again Christian who went to liberty University to be a Bible Preaching, Soul Winning Pastor - just like University Founder, Dr. Jerry Falwell.
While there, Brett O'Donnell excelled at debate - really excelled - and Liberty has won so many USA Debate National Championships everyone has lost count! Let's just say MANY, MANY, MANY of them!
When it was time to go start his Church, Dr. Falwell asked him if he'd consider staying on at Liberty U., teaching debate and heading up the debate team.
Brett prayed about it and said: "YES!" - without debate!
A man named Karl Rove was greatly impressed with Liberty's great success, with O'Donnell debating and teaching debating . . .
. . . so Karl Rove hired Brett to help a man who wanted to be President, who was not the sharpest guy in the world with words.
His name was "W" - George "W" - Bush that is . . . and he listened to Brett and won the President twice, defeating Al Gore, and John Kerry in the debates!
John McCain then snapped him up, but didn't want to take all of O'Donnell's advice . . . but the VEEP sure did.
Sarah Palin! She clobbered Joseph Biden in their debate!
Then 2012 . . . with Michele Bachmann and two other top aides inside, O'Donnell swung the door shut, hopped behind the wheel and drove away.
Iowa after that.
But if Bachmann has seemed a little down on her momentum lately, O'Donnell, who has emerged as her campaign's leading evangelical light, is keeping the competitive juices flowing.
"The cement is still very wet in this election," O'Donnell said in an interview amid the furor of the sexual harassment allegations against Herman Cain, the latest in a succession of GOP front-runners that once included Bachmann.
With a highly unsettled election foremost on his mind, O'Donnell was not giving up, even if it means he sometimes has to chauffeur the candidate around the capital in his own Chevy truck.
It did and he did!
Debate coach is now O'Donnell's title in the Bachmann campaign, which got its initial jolt from a well-received debate performance last June in New Hampshire.
But even in a year where multiple debates have largely shaped the ebb and flow of the GOP race, this has hardly been the extent of O'Donnell's influence in her low-dollar political organization.
"I help with debate prep, speechwriting, messaging and anything else she asks me to do," O'Donnell said moments before Bachmann's speech at the Family Research Council, while he quietly adjusted the microphone and placed the printed speech on the podium so Bachmann could make a hands-free entrance.
In ways large and small, O'Donnell is considered one of Bachmann's most trusted advisers, breaking through her tight family circle by dint of loyalty, hard work, and their common evangelical roots.
"He's a big part of the campaign," said national campaign manager Keith Nahigian, who took over after the departure of GOP heavyweight Ed Rollins. "Brett works every day, all day."
'On the bus'
In the Bachmann campaign, ex-staffers say you're either "on the bus" or off the bus. Her New Hampshire staff, feeling decidedly off the bus, quit en mass last month. O'Donnell, who once wanted to be a minister, is definitely on the bus, along with Nahigian and communications director Alice Stewart, who keeps the media at bay.
Campaign aides give O'Donnell credit for bringing message discipline to a campaign plagued by Bachmann's tendency to extemporize and make gaffes, one of the most damaging being her suggestion of a link between the HPV vaccine for girls and "mental retardation."
Rollins, who had already stepped down as campaign manager, left the campaign in frustration soon after that episode, giving a series of candid interviews that raised questions about Bachmann's viability and O'Donnell's political acumen.
It was O'Donnell, Rollins told the Star Tribune, who turned up the unknown woman who gave Bachmann the faulty vaccine story. Rollins gives O'Donnell high marks for writing speeches and crafting debate points, but not for campaign strategy.
"Brett doesn't know a lot about politics," Rollins said. "He's sort of her security blanket. ... She didn't want a strategy. She wanted a cheerleader, and he gives her that comfort zone."
Part of the comfort zone is prayer, according to Rollins: "They're together all the time. They share a common faith. He understands the language of the evangelical movement."
According to Nahigian, O'Donnell has helped keep the campaign on an even keel. "He brings consistency, the ability to stay on message, and consistently break new ground at the same time," he said.
O'Donnell acknowledges that his background as a championship debate coach is "not the normal path to politics."
The common thread is persuasion. "Mostly, it's about the way you frame and simplify arguments so they can be consumed," said Warren Decker, O'Donnell's mentor and rival as head debate coach at George Mason University in Virginia.
In the past, O'Donnell has rejected the image of the hired political gun, once referring to himself as an "ideologue" with a conservative agenda. He's also shown a willingness to play by the rules of the game. O'Donnell has been criticized in evangelical circles for allowing his college teams to argue both sides of each debate topic -- even abortion.
One of the challenges facing O'Donnell is that while Bachmann's unguarded utterances often hatch mistakes, they also provide some of the most inspiring moments for her passionate social conservative supporters.
Following O'Donnell's script at the Family Research Council last week, Bachmann gave a rushed, 26-minute speech with her eyes mostly cast downward at a prepared text. The speech made news mostly for the epithet "frugal socialists" to describe some of her more centrist GOP rivals.
O'Donnell occupied his usual position in the back of the room, between Nahigian and Stewart, observing Bachmann's every movement and inflection.
Bachmann -- and by extension O'Donnell -- has been criticized recently for not offering anything new to her campaign, which has tended to stick to well-worn Tea Party themes of government overreach, runaway spending and repealing Obamacare.
O'Donnell isn't necessarily opposed to big, game-changing gestures. He was among the aides urging McCain to make a one-term pledge in 2008 to show his commitment to the nation and to jump-start his faltering campaign.
There are parallels there for Bachmann, who promises that she would press her conservative principles as president regardless of the electoral consequences. "It's not about getting elected to a second term," O'Donnell said.
But O'Donnell remains distrustful of grand gestures for the sake of getting attention.
"Gimmicks, whether in campaigning or governing, are bad," he said. "You have to be what you are."
Brett O’Donnell, is the President of O’Donnell & Associates and was most recently the Chief Strategist to the Bachmann for President Campaign. O’Donnell also assisted in preparing Governor Mitt Romney for Presidential Primary debates in Florida, a critical win in Romney’s bid to become the Republican nominee. He was the Director of Messaging for the McCain Presidential Campaign from January of 2007 - November of 2008 where his duties included message strategy and development, supervision of the debate preparation process for both the primary and general election debates, speech writing, public speaking and media training and ensuring that the campaign’s message remained consistent across all its components from advertising and direct mail to its website.
O'Donnell & Associates, Ltd. is a political and corporate strategic communications consulting firm. During The 2008 presidential campaign O’Donnell was twice named to Time Magazine’s “Five Most Important People Not Running for President” list and has been described as the “best political debate coach” in the country.
In 2004 O’Donnell was retained by the Bush-Cheney campaign to assist the President in debate preparation for 2004 presidential debates. O’Donnell’s duties included evaluation of Senator Kerry, President Bush and Senator Edward’s debating abilities through extensive viewing of prior debates, preparing debate strategies for the President and the Vice-President, and consulting on the rules for the debate formats. Karl Rove said that O’Donnell’s “hard work and preparation for the debates sent the President into the final stretch of the campaign with a wind at his back.” Mark McKinnon, President, Maverick Media and Media Advisor to President Bush said of O’Donnell, "The guy has great chops. He knows more about presidential debates than anyone I've ever talked to." (New York Times, March 19, 2006) In 2005 O’Donnell was in charge of debate preparation for the Virginians for Jerry Kilgore campaign and has since consulted for a number of gubernatorial and senate campaigns. O’Donnell has also written for Sean Hannity and worked in the speech preparation and practice department at the 2004 and 2008 Republican National Conventions. Presently O’Donnell is consulting for Rick Warren, author of the Purpose Driven Life, for message/marketing strategy, communications strategy, and rapid response and media communications. O’Donnell has appeared as a guest on the Comedy Central’s Colbert Report, and he has guest lectured at Harvard University’s Institute of Politics and the LBJ School of Government at the University of Texas.
Prior to joining the McCain Presidential Campaign Brett O'Donnell was the Director of Debate at Liberty University for eighteen years where he focused on providing students with skills in oral and written argument, critical thinking, and persuasion through the activity of competitive intercollegiate debate. His teams won eighteen national rankings championships in intercollegiate debate.
O’Donnell was named the Keele debate coach of the year by the National Debate Tournament in 1997. He taught at the University of Michigan’s summer debate institute for seven years and has authored numerous articles and scholarly papers on intercollegiate debate, political communication, argumentation theory, and rhetoric and public address.

As such, we provide web-space to a number of Ministries, notably NewtonStein (a Creation-Science-Based Research Group), as well as AMERIPEDIA, BIBLIPEDIA, CHRISTIPEDIA, CATHOLIPEDIA , ISLAMIPEDIA, JUDAEOPEDIA, POLITIPEDIA, TEA-PARTY-UNITED, MEDIPEDIA, ETC., ALL BIBLE-BASED!
Obviously, all phases of Christianity do not agree doctrinally or politically and sometimes even disagree on the actual facts concerning a particular scripture, fact, leader, nation or situation, hence there are well over 10,000 denominations extant.
We neither claim nor present ourselves as having perfect knowledge in all things. Thus views and articles posted on this website are those of their authors – who often insist their identities, denominational, and/or doctrinal persuasion be made known for various reasons – offered to you as wise people of God - Christian Patriots, whatever your nation - to discern for your own judgement and edification.
Thus we trust, hope and pray, that ALL BELIEVERS who look to the Lord Jesus ONLY, to the Word of God ONLY, to "His will (ONLY!) being done on this Earth AS IN HEAVEN"
In the NAME of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour:
