And the Winner of the Debate is….Jo Jorgensen?

Both The President and Former VP Biden Lost

I did watch the Thrilla in Manila last evening – nope wrong century and wrong city no I did not watch that fight although Muhammad Ali was a boyhood hero.

But I was not pleased with either side.

The first “round” reminded me of that first ROCKY movie where Apollo Creed and Rocky Balboa really went at it in the first round or two – Apollo was trying to have an early knockout – and here’s the bell ringing for the end of the early round and he’s saying something like: I’m still here!

That is how President Trump came across at the end of the first subject matter.

Trump: He interrupted way, WAY too much. Note to the President’s handlers: Tell him to stop. Take a breath. Use his time to write down your thoughts – organize your thoughts. Bring out your record of accomplishment. On race, he did not even mention the First Step Act, the aid to the HBCUs (I am still skeptical about but everybody else has their hand out…) and his new Platinum Plan to help the Black community.

Biden: Slipped way in the back was a promise to pay Brazil 20 BILLION dollars (Betcha I know who is paying for that! You and me if we pay taxes – although he did say it would be a collection among the developed nations) to keep the rain forest. The President should have turned to Biden and if he is going to interrupt make the point: That coming from the taxpayers now that you are going to undo my tax cut? Are we paying Brazil? That kind of thinking on climate is exactly why I left Paris.

Trump: The President does not have a clue or cannot articulate the real issue inherent in climate: personal freedom and national sovereignty. He could have said: The climate people will take your jobs, tell you what kind of car and light bulb and compost pile you will have and we will answer to – and maybe pay money to foreigners in reparations. Look at California: They want to ban non-electric cars! he also should have said: I am putting America First – not answering to foreigners who want to take us to the cleaners – and would take the former VP to the cleaners.

I am also disappointed in the President in not refuting the Charlottesville lie or the Atlantic lie about our soldiers more forcefully. Should have had John Bolton’s comment in his book and others who refuted the lie. Trump should also have said: Yes I condemn white supremacy and violence on the right.

Biden had a huge unforced error when he said: “I am the Democratic party.” He also admitted approving the platform. That ought to be good for a series of ads.

Biden also gave up one of his clear assets: Presidential-ness. You can’t call the sitting President a clown or say “shut up” to the sitting President. Trump was also over the top twice: Once about “smart” and once about Beau Biden who Trump thought Biden was talking about Hunter Biden.

As TV it was great. As informing undecided voters it was awful. I would have asked: Anyone else on the ballot in all 50 states? Well, yes, there is one: Libertarian Jo Jorgensen.

One Response to “And the Winner of the Debate is….Jo Jorgensen?”

  1. The Informant says:

    Observations of the “Rose Garden” unconstitutional SCOTUS nomination party.

    1) Will you people see in the not to distant future that with your unconstitutional SCOTUS picks that want to force their false religion down America’s throat and dismiss Roe vs. Wade, that you may have miscalculated their real intentions? Those unconstitutionally nominated judges on SCOTUS that your wac-job president installed, will they also be more than willing to TAKE AWAY YOUR GUNS? How can you be so stupid as not to ask that question? Given em’ a year or two. Do you think Coney, the other unconstitutionally nominated catholics on SCOTUS along with Kagan, will have any problem taking away your guns after they finish destroying Roe vs. Wade and possibly kicking 20-30 million people off their healthcare? And then, will Republican leaders run around lying to their base once again that they didn’t take your guns, oh no, it was Democrats. Just wait. You’ll see. Just like those same Republicans lied about ending Obamacare for all those years.
    2) The rest of the world is laughing at the US. A couple more Rose Garden events and the Trump administration will be shut down for quite a while. Nobody on this planet has handled this plague worst than the Trump administration. Nobody.
    3) Just about everything of significance done by the Trump administration except his tax cuts for the rich and unconstitutional SCOTUS nominees has been wiped out by his totally incompetent handling of the plaque.
    4) Just look at how stupid they were in the Rose Garden last Saturday. Like little children playing in a sand box in your backyard. Shaking hands, hugging and kissing each other. Then 5-6 days afterward, the plague owns their asses.
    5) There is absolutely nothing that Trump touches that does not eventually turn to shit.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
