  • Donald Trump won the debate but had two big losses Sunday

    By conventional wisdom, Donald Trump entered Sunday night’s debate with a nearly impossible task: trying to rehabilitate his bid for the White House after the worst two weeks a modern presidential candidate has had. The tape that surfaced Friday of Trump talking in 2005 in disgusting, coarse fashion about women — what he considers a seduction technique sounds like sexual assault — broke the Republican dam and triggered a flood of GOP lawmakers abandoning his candidacy. Trump not only seemed to slow the bleeding, he might have stopped it. His demeanor and delivery were far better than in the first...
  • No ear mics allowed for debate moderators; But what about the candidates?

    The presidential debate moderators will not be allowed to wear earpieces, according to published reports. But what about the presidential candidates themselves? A voter in Maryland wrote Federal Elections Commissioner Matthew Petersen on Sept. 8 seeking a "clear response" to that question. "I read reports that during the televised event questioning each of the candidates on their qualifications to serve as Commander in Chief, that Secretary Clinton had a microphone in her ear to receive prompting and guidance from advisers off stage," wrote Laurence B of Columbia, MD. [A check of his name and address at the Maryland State Board...

    Will Donald Trump be treated impartially in the debates moderated by Commission designated liberals, not likely. Can Donald Trump overcome the partiality, we will see? The debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are being organized organized by The Commission on Presidential Debates. The 2016 debates are already scheduled and the ‘moderators’ have been chosen. The commission is labeled as ‘non partisan’ but is it really? The mere fact that that three of the debates are ‘moderated’ by people from the three major news networks itself should be a clue as to the false ‘non partisan’ nature of the debates...

    The Presidential Debate moderators have not yet been chosen. Therefore my question is who should NOT be a debate moderator? Not just somebody who has some bias but someone who under NO CONDITION should be allowed to moderate any of the debates. I'll lead off by naming two: 1. Shepard Smith---Not after what he said about Trump "trading in racism" this week. 2. John Harwood of CNBC---Not after he completely disgraced himself at the GOP debates last year.

Yeah, I would say that certain moderators would be unacceptable, absolutely,' Trump told Time magazine in an interview today. 'I want to have fair moderators … I will demand fair moderators.'

    HOUSTON, Texas—The Republican National Committee (RNC) has proposed major changes for the upcoming 2016 Presidential Primary Debates. The changes include reducing the number of debates and getting rid of the left-of-center moderators like George Stephanopoulos and Chris Matthews. The proposal passed by a vote of 152-7 according to Republican Party of Texas (RPT) Chairman Steve Munisteri. In a newsletter sent out to Republican activists and delegates in the run-up to next week’s RPT state convention, which will be held in Fort Worth June 5-7, Munisteri reported that he and the two Texas Republican National Committee Members, Dr. Robin Armstrong and...

    In the midst of the third presidential debate in Florida, which was supposedly about foreign policy, President Obama interjected a few words about American education. The rationale was not unreasonable. A better educated America will be a better performing and more internationally competitive America. “Let’s talk about what we need to compete….let’s take an example that we know is going to make a difference, and that’s our education policy,” said the president. Unfortunately, as is so often the case with what we hear from politicians, what we hear sounds so logical, so compelling. If only it had anything to do...

    Monday's US presidential debate on foreign policy came and went. And we are none the wiser for it. Not surprisingly, at the height of the campaign season, neither US President Barack Obama nor his Republican challenger Gov. Mitt Romney was interested in revealing his plans for the next four years. But from what was said, we can be fairly certain that a second Obama term will involve no departure from his foreign policy in his current term in office. As far as Iran and its nuclear weapons program is concerned, that policy has involved a combination of occasional tough talk...

    An interesting story from last winter: An email friend who lives in an affluent suburb far from Washington, a staunch Republican, was watching one of the Republican debates with his wife, a staunch Democrat. He was surprised by her response to Mitt Romney. "He's a grown-up. He's someone who is reliable," he told me she said. "People will feel safe if he is in charge." I've been thinking about that email in the wake of the first presidential debate on Oct. 3 and the vice presidential debate last week. (This is written on deadline before the Oct. 16 Long Island,...

    HEMPSTEAD, NY - President Obama was noticeably sharper and more aggressive in tonight's debate, as both candidates exchanged barbs throughout the evening.  Mitt Romney excelled by focusing on jobs, jobs, jobs, and repeatedly forcing voters to notice the canyon between Obama's rhetoric and his record.  Romney's strongest answer came after Obama attempted to apply lipstick to his failed record in office.  Romney unleashed a torrent of facts that pushed back forcefully against each and every one of those claims.  It should be cut into an ad as soon as possible.  Throughout the night, Romney was asked questions from the audience...

    DANVILLE, KY. -- In the closing days of the 2004 presidential campaign, the New York Times and "60 Minutes" reported that U.S. forces had lost track of hundreds of tons of dangerous munitions in Iraq. The story quickly dominated media coverage, and Democratic candidate John Kerry decided to devote the final stretch of his campaign to slamming President George W. Bush over the issue. "Our country and our troops are less safe because this president failed to do the basics," Kerry said on the stump, citing "incredible incompetence" in the Bush White House. "My fellow Americans, we can't afford to...

    As much of the far-left mainstream media continues to panic over Mr. Obama’s abject failure of a first debate, they deliberately avoid doing their jobs and reporting the real reason for his totally expected performance. Said one Obama-fawning editor from The Atlantic magazine, “…The president appeared snippy, his eyes flashing angrily during those infrequent moments when he looked at his opponent, his lips pursed and upturned when he looked down…There was, in the expression, a mixture of annoyance, impatience, and dislike” The fact is that Mr. Obama was “snippy.” His expression did have a “mixture of annoyance, impatience, and dislike.”...

UPDATE - Rasmussen's Saturday tracker shows a four-point bounce for Romney, who now leads 49-47 among likely voters nationwide.  The better news?  Only 2/3 of that rolling poll was taken after the debate, so he has room to expand his advantage.

    Romney's stated policies in business during the first presidential debate: champion the growth and development for the middle class. Until now, Romney's position was widely perceived as one of the biggest enemies to the middle class. One of his most powerful moments during the debate was the contrast he illustrated between the president’s decision to finance the five big banks, while allowing small banks to fail across America. Some credit should be given to the president, however, for his short-term policies to save the banks, and the wise business decision to make interest from the banks that were save through...

    When you write about war, Barbara Tuchman once told aspiring historians, write as though you don't know who won. That's hard to do. It's just as hard to write about which presidential candidate will win a tight race, or even a presidential debate. Who among the smug punditry would have predicted Mitt Romney's repeated knockdowns of Barack Obama in their first debate? The pundit buzz had been that the re-election of the president was inevitable; it was time to uncork the Champagne. The debate proved the celebration was premature. Some inevitable presidents have lost in the long run; some in...

    NEW YORK — Jim Lehrer may be regretting his decision to come out of semi-retirement and moderate his 12th presidential debate. The veteran PBS anchor drew caustic social media reviews for his performance on Wednesday, with critics saying he failed to keep control of the campaign’s first direct exchange between President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney. The candidates talked over Lehrer’s attempts to keep them to time limitations, and his open-ended questions frequently lacked sharpness. The tough assessments crossed party lines: Republican commentator Laura Ingraham wrote on Twitter that Lehrer seemed “a bit overwhelmed.” Comic and Democratic activist Bill...
