Discussion on: Why Bootstrap?

I've been pondering on this... mind you I am relatively new to this, but here it goes. The way I see it, to change the layout of a site without editing the HTML, one would have to style it through CSS. If some styling has been done through HTML, perhaps it can be overdid by the important tag in CSS. Another possibility that came to mind, is that it cannot be done. Some change would have to take place, as minimal as it may be. For example, when scaffolding with Bootstrap, perhaps the only change that need take place is in the class that is called "col--".

That's my biggest problem with all these non-semantic frameworks. You have to edit things in two places, and you have to mix content with layout.
