He couldn't answer a single question, couldn't give any details...he just blew hot air over and over about Obama's policies without explaining how his would work better, even when given the opportunity. All I heard was "cut PBS", "repeal Obamacare", constant interruptions and politely telling Jim Lehrer to shut up. This wins the debate???
That's what I'm saying. I'm a third party voter and a registered Republican, and I'd really like to get on board with one of the two big tickets, but Romney has no plan. He could give no specifics for the follow up to everything he'd repeal, which makes me wonder if he has a plan at all.
I'm all fine with him saying he would repeal stuff...but I wanted to hear what he would do in place of the repealed programs.
And that's just the thing. We already knew what Obama was going to say, what I wanted to hear were specifics from Romney as to how he'd *fix* things, and I heard a lot of bitching and a lot of promise to repeal this and that, but no solution, no remedy, just "I'm gonna cut this and repeal that". The questions went unanswered. He didn't offer anything new, or even anything old that actually worked.
He did seem more eloquent, and Obama unprepared.
I wouldn't say it was that Mitt won, but that president Obama lost. Mitt, like you said, was a lot of hot air. He spent more time turning every question to how Obama was doing things wrong, instead of how he planned to do things right.
