The foreign policy debate? I'd be quite concerned about that considering recent events if I were him.

Oh, there are definite points Romney can hammer him on but do you really think there will be many questions about Libya? I don't.

And Foreign Policy is one of the things most polls (biased or not) show Obama leading Romney on. I think Romney will do ok but Obama is, in a lot of peoples eyes, a much better foreign policy president than he is domestic.

No doubt. Romney won the debate.

But it is because all the discussion at the moment is about style and little about substance. I think that narrative may change some as the substance is broken down more

If by "broken down more" you mean twisted and spun by the liberal media, then you may be right.

Wait a minute.....you mean that cut to medicare has grown from the original $ 494 billion dollars to over $ 716 billion dollars?

Dang.....no wonder my copays are going through the roof.

Obama says he wants to lower healthcare cost. Well you sure will lower overall healthcare cost if you throw Seniors under the bus by cutting $716 billion from medicare. I recall during the presidential campaign BHO making the comment,"We can lower healthcare cost by simply giving folks pain killers, instead of costly medical test". When he said that I knew Seniors were in trouble and that BHO intended to fund obamacare by denying benefits to Seniors.

Bump. Romney crushed style.

His backtracking and 180 on his tax plan killed the substance of his stylish way of debating.

Style = Romney

Substance = Obama

American people go for style every time as a whole.

So Romney won the debate.

There was no 180 on his tax plan. He has always said he was lowering marginal tax rates and correspondingly eliminating deductions and 'loopholes'.

He has been consistent on that. Now rightfully so, folks have bitched that he has given no specifics on the deductions (including you). Valid point. But that is consistent with what he said last night.

You may not find his plan realistic; it may not have the details you want; but what he said last night has been what he has said all along. No 180.

I think Dennis Miller summed it up nicely.

"Obama got owned, refinanced, and owned again".

"Obama better hope a Kicked arse is covered under Obamacare".

The OP is just proof that some folks are so entrenched in their positions, there is literally nothing that could happen in a debate which would change their mind. Therefore, they must create internal spin to justify their choice. It is no surprise, there are lots of folks doing this very same thing this morning.

Just one example, please.


Obama's substantive, though few and far between, were basically complete fabrications.

"We've created 5 million jobs in the last three years."



Yeah, and how many did you lose? I guess he forgot that little caveat.

Well, he said he was no lowering taxes for the wealthy. He said that specifically. That he did not believe in it and would not do it. That is a 180 as the bulk of the benefits of his rate cuts go to the wealthy. Not even the bulk, like 90%....

Why do you continue to piss your pants about the tea party? Spending less scares you?
How do you link Romney in any way to the tea party?
I'm very curious to read your response.

Certainly, winning style and lacking in substance has been shown to be effective in this country.

WTF???????


Exactly WHEN did specifics and substance become a line associated with Obama or Liberals in general when campaigning? Who is this dishonest as to completely forget the 2008 Obama?
