Oxford Style Debate: Or Bringing a Knife to a Gunfight

Saturday evening, in the Conservative Grand Junction of Colorado, Zach Lahn; Colorado State Political Science and Business Marketing student, challenged President Obama to an Oxford Style debate. Lahn, obviously spurred on by adrenalin, was waving and shouting at President Obama. Lahn's expressed interest in "health care reform," veered to the side of the markets; after all, he is also a cloistered Republican Senate aide. The link provided is a cached copy, as the page was taken off-line following his appearance at the town hall.

Lahn proved to be not only presumptuous regarding the President's abilities, but he was clearly outmatched and ill- prepared for parliamentary debate with the POTUS. "Generalities" and "philosophical" answers would have helped provide Lahn a much-needed respite.
