Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chair of the Democratic National Committee, speaks at the Democratic National Convention at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday, Sept. 6, 2012.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Reince Priebus appeared back-to-back on this weekend’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt” to discuss last week’s debate and the parties’ game plans going forward.

Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chairman, said Mitt Romney tallied points for style, not substance on Oct. 3: “From beginning to end, he lied about his own proposals.” She defended President Barack Obama, saying he challenged Romney and didn’t drop the ball.

Priebus, the Republican National Committee chairman, said Romney looked “presidential” while Obama “just looked annoyed.” Priebus said Romney will continue to try “to win every day,” and predicted an “interesting” debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Paul Ryan on Thursday.
