Ichigo: Man, you're strong!
Bad guy: That's right - I'm way stronger than you!
Ichigo: I can barely hold my own! Guess I'll have to get stronger!
(Insert training here.)
Bad guy: No way - you couldn't get strong this fast! Nooooooo!
Now, you've got this:
Barack Obama: My debating skills are weak!
Senator Clinton: Hahaha - my policy stating abilities are greater than yours!
Obama: I can barely hold my own - I need to get stronger.
Clinton: No - you couldn't have gotten better at debating this fast!
It seems that with every debate, Obama gets stronger, more confident, faster with the verbal judo to take his opponents argument and turn it right against him.
