so why were Chris Wallace's question so pathetic? He claimed to of spent weeks paining over what to ask. And yet, non logical pointed argumentative questions to Trump and crickets to old Joe. One of biggest failures was race. If there ever was a candidate that should grilled over and over and over again on race its Joe Biden. Hell, even us rural people in fly over country know that much, you think an over paid lib like Chris would know this also. And immigration not to mentioned is a sin as the 2 candidates have opposite views. one good for America and one a mess. Only 1 answer here that makes any sense, Chris Wallace is a flawed unfair and biased snot nosed lib who did even understand what his job was that nite and certainly failed in preforming that job. Thanks Chris great job and the sad thing is more than likely those inside the beltway think he did a great job but Trump ruined it all.
Face it mcfarm, Trumps forte is not his ability to communicate.............it's probably his weakest point.
He is no Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton or Barrack Obama that were all elected because of their silver tongues and charisma.
Add to that his personality flaw of being a bully and you had the recipe for a bad performance by President Trump NOT a bad performance by Chris Wallace.
Joe Biden, though over the hill was always a great debater........one of the best.
The sharp Biden from 3 decades ago, the first time he ran for president would have made Trump look like a fool, instead of today's Biden calling him that and other names during the entire debate.
Biden was not sharp by any definition but Trump did a very poor job making concise points and exercising self control.
Imagine if his agenda was exactly the same...........except he was a Ronald Reagan clone!
metmike: After this joke at the debate, Mondale said that he knew it was over for him.
Ronald Reagan was the only president I ever voted for in my life with no hesitation whatsoever, for his second term. I was convinced he was the man for the job after his first term. I also voted for him in the first term, but was not as confident. I just figured he had to be better than Carter.
When I was the main weather anchor for a CBS affiliate, Reagan was president for many of those years.
We were all liberals, especially our news director.
The news department, obviously covered politics, including President Reagan.
When he was giving long speeches, our anti conservative news director would often shake his head and repeat over and over "How can you not like this guy???"
Buddy Hackett steals President Reagans 3 legged chicken joke(actually Reagan may have gotten it from somebody else):
On Wallace's questions, I will have to criticize him on the way that he handled his climate change question.
BTW, that 97% number of climate scientists number that you always here about climate change is intentionally misleading.
They use it to promote the climate CRISIS.
The reality is that I am in that 97%(though I have not published any peer reviewed papers).
I KNOW there has been climate change and some, maybe even most of it has been from the influence of humans burning fossil fuels........but I also KNOW that we are having a climate OPTIMUM, not a crisis.
They use the 97% to make you think 97% of us think that we are having a climate CRISIS. This is fake news. Only a minority think that this is a climate crisis and most of them base it on busted, too warm climate models(simulations of the atmosphere using mathematical equations going out the next 100 years) vs actual observations of the atmosphere and life.
That's what I've been doing much of the day for the past 38 years.....making observations and analyzing the global atmosphere.
metmike, thank you for your tireless efforts to explain the climate situation to us. Apparently, some things have to be said more than once. For example the statement about you being among the 97% group was news to me (even though you may have mentioned it before).
I fully understand... there is a difference between admitting that the climate is changing, and calling it a "crisis"
