MAYBE THE OP NEEDS TO DEFINE SUBSTANCE?

Obama won the presidency on style and "hope and change "

What substance did Obama offer last night?

What substance has he offered the last 4 years?

3 examples please


Already covered. Read thread please. In summary a win by default.

no. there is not a "default" winner. by failing to engage romney and defend his record, Obama was the loser BOTH in style and substance. it's like he thought he didn't need to or something.

Gotta disagree. Romney flip flopped on central tenants of his campaign and tax policy and said things contrary to what he has been running on in his entire campaign. He was dishonest about his tax plan and denied parts of it he has campaigned on. He made a murky vague plan even more so with his apparent change in strategy and beliefs regarding his tax plan.

Therefore if Obama had sat there the entire debate scratching his arse or nuts, he would have won by default on the substance in my book.

Debates are all about style. Substance is an afterthought for both the candidates and the audience.

I would actually rank debates behind campaign speeches if I were to base the scale on substance given.

Winning "style" is all that matters to the masses. Obama lost in the only category that matters.

He probably would have been better off last night if he had done that.

Oh, I agree with all of this. Said that last night. Romney clearly won the debate last night. Most of the electorate is not that bright and style most definitely is much more important than substance in these formats.

That is weak sauce, dude. Romney straight called him on items he's caved on or outright flipped on, and he didn't engage.

I'm not even saying that Romney did win on substance. I am saying that Obama most certainly didn't.

Both of these guys suffer & benefit from their lack of substance- the difference is that one of them has a record as President that sucks and is hard to defend. But to "win on substance" (except to you I guess,) he has to defend it.

Did they program you with an implant, or by brainwashing?

I hope at least you're getting paid.
