There's no there there

Over at Ricochet, John Yoo notes that Obama's debate problem isn't a lack of style - it's a lack of substance:
Strip away posture, tone, and facial expressions, and the remarkable feature of Obama’s time on the podium is how little he actually says. Obama brings up no new domestic policies for his second term. He proposes no new legislation, nor will he cut any unnecessary programs. Spending and taxes, it seems, will simply go on forever at their current rates. Somehow the deficit will magically disappear and the economy will fully recover.
Of course the word from the Obama campaign is that their guy is going to be "more aggressive" in the debate tomorrow night but that won't make up for the shadow that is his record.
