Perhaps they should let Obama serve a third term....it might be the lesser of three evils.
There was an email doing the rounds (no longer have) suggesting the choice of candidates facing the Americans is a plot dreamt up by Obama so he can have a third term.

I stayed up all night to watch this historic (hysterical) event. Via Sky News.
My son who lives in New Jersey told me that the American networks featured twin views throughout, so you could see the facial expressions....the slow fading of the Trump as the evening progressed, drinking water, scowling, snorting, sniffing, gurneying, interrupting. We only had half the show over here in Limey land.

Those three extra years he is carrying and all those cheeseburgers are beginning to show. So when it comes to a question of STAMINA, STAMINA, STAMINA, the answer was clear. Donald must really learn how to pace himself.

Watched the debate and thought Trump came across as rather rude amd bullying. The major plus in his favour is that he is not a politician and offers an apparently genuine change of direction in US politics. If only he could learn to keep his mouth shut.

Clinton came across as polished and urbane, diplomatic and convincing. Her biggest failure is that she has been singularly unsuccessful in changing anything over a long and distinguished legal and political career.

Score: Trump 1, Clinton 0

This series of election debates is for Trump to lose, not Clinton to win.

I disagree. There is much more potential promise in a Clinton presidency than anything Trump could muster. Can we be real? Can we talk together like reasonable men?
More promise with her at the helm, no. More predictable perhaps, she's telegraphed her intentions clearly. The path forward with him is unknown and unpredictable, which concerns me as much as knowing Hillary's intent.

Baltimore's oldest Newspaper carried this article.

Just saying....why was Hillary looking down and and apparently reading from something so often during the debate?


Clinton Received Debate Questions Week Before Debate, According to Sources


If this story is true....why has FOX not carried it prominently itself?

Why would they do that?

I mean, it's not exactly a surprise that the debate would be biased against him in every possible way. It's the media. They hate Trump.

BTW, the first polls I've seen since the debate say Clinton 'won', but undecided voters are more likely to vote for Trump than they were yesterday. I'm sure that's what matters to him, not scoring points on TV.

WC - What is Hillary's intent? I thought it was to carry Obama's legacy forward. Are you aware of something more sinister?

It's the media. They hate Trump.
That must be why they've given him hundreds of millions of dollars worth of coverage since the primaries.

Have you listened to her VAPA?

- Stacking the deck in the SCOTUS.

- Spending us further into oblivion, 19.5 Trillion in debt yet she has promised something to everyone. I forget the source, but something like 48 new or expanded programs that'll add to the debt.

- Flag draped coffins at Dover. We've discussed this aspect already.

No, you didn't, or didn't read it correctly. They got the general topic - not the specific questions themselves. What Hilary actually received, based on the detailed level of her response, is the question being asked.

I give you benefit of the doubt in not seeing the difference, rather than trying to obfuscate it.....

The first debate has six sections focused on six topics that are announced at least one week before the debate

Yes, exactly. Another eight years of enriching the rich, economic depression for the poor, and war for all.

Except the money will run out in less than eight years, if she doesn't get America nuked first.

That must be why they've given him hundreds of millions of dollars worth of coverage since the primaries.
Just because they like money more than they hate Trump doesn't mean they don't hate him.

I will repeat it again, the MSM are being played. They think they are mocking and deriding Trump, but they are giving him free airtime to talk to his audience. He has cancelled his TV campaigns!!

However, he knows his target voters and speaks in a fashion that appeals to them, and on subjects that concern them; whilst Hillary massages her solid vote whilst spending tens of millions.

The polls are showing Trump winning the majority votes in those undecided after the first debate. Who is playing who for a fool?

In what way are the press mocking him?

When he accuses Obama of being born overseas then continues with the claim for several years way beyond the use by date, then admits he is American but blames Clinton for starting the rumour.

Isnt the "msm" simply letting Trump mock himself?

Well maybe but what if Trump supporters came to believe that Clinton did start the rumour?

Clinton has been mocking and denigrating Obama a lot longer than Trump has.

I would wager that even the most hardened Trump supporter must be impressed with her memory . She knew who Trump was renting apartments to in New York in 1973. Maybe she will remember what happened in Benghazi during the thirteen hours when Americans under her watch and administration were attacked and killed .
Maybe her doctor has finally got the medications correct and her memory is coming back and those people who took the fifth might ,and plea agreements or had no recollection of the events of that night or where she placed all those Unapproved e mail devices.


Who knows where those emails will turn up, or any of the thirteen devices that the FBI could not find. Maybe they should have put Skully and Mulder on the case.
Maybe we will know the truth before the election.
Although I would not bet on that

Can't speak for preparing candidates for presidential debates.
But can speak for preparing CEOs for results announcements, press conferences and senate hearings with hostile senators.
Clinton may have looked scripted or if she was reading from a script - because she will have been rehearsed and run through different scenarios so many times that she will have been able to repeat the answers in her sleep.
For one Senate appearance lasting an hour, we spent months in preparation, including multiple role playing sessions where we hammered the executives who were fronting with the most hostile and outrageous questions we could think of - and then switched to demanding the most obscure detail.
In my view, Trump simply wasn't well enough prepared. She also got under his skin on several occasions.
