    Romney clearly won based on style. Substance, not so much.

    Exactly. After the media is done fact checking and contrasting his new positions to his old ones, his win won't be nearly as shiny.

    I agree. But, with Romney's lack of details, I am not sure how much fact checking anyone can do on what he laid out?

    Romney was very honest in stating that he would sacrifice education, health care, and programs such as PBS on the alter of two trillion for the military.

    In this day and age, why SHOULD our government fund PBS? I mean honestly, why?

    Romney destroyed Obama on substance.

    The substance was Obama's failed record.

    We're seeing the DNC marching orders, The Liberal spin, "Obama won on substance." ROFLMAO

    How specifically?? What substance?? What did he offer?? I saw a stuttering boob with NO SUBSTANCE.. Mitt Romney shined.. He laid out specifics, targets, statistics, facts, humor, knowledge, bold fresh idea's, Statesmanship. Obama looked tired and out of his league.

    Romney did what he had to do. He convinced America that he is not your run of the mill, batshit crazy Conservative. Obama has been painting Romney as out of touch with mainstream America. Romney went more to the center and offered an alternative that wasn't as scary as predicted

    Romney still hasn't shed his image as being for the wealthy. He talked about how bad things are for the middle class, but didn't offer much to help them

    Obama was listless and showed little enthusiasm. The only positive is that he avoided a major gaffe that would cause a reversal

    Romney will draw closer in the polls. Obama still has an overwhelming lead in electoral votes and swing states. I think some states that were put into the Obama column (Ohio, NH) may go back into play but I don't think Romney did enough to win
