Dead man walking. That's what I see when the "patriot and veteran" Tony Bobulinksi held his press conference a mere two hours before Biden took the stage for his final Presidential Debate against incumbent Donald J. Trump.
The upshot? Joe lied when he claimed he never discussed Hunter's business dealings with China. We all knew that already but it felt good to approach the Presidential Debate with "liar" fresh in the minds of the American people. Naturally, the press tried to forge a link with Rudy Giuliani but Tony held firm on "no questions."
Tony's presser almost eclipsed Amy Coney Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court being approved (despite the Democrats' silent tantrum by boycott) for the Senate vote. If that weren't enough, Ghislaine Maxwell's deposition was also unsealed. Those women should not be mentioned in the same paragraph.
It's been a banner day for American political news. An embarrassment of headline riches. But I digress. Focus. Debate. Oh yeah, right. Debate.
His name was Protagoras. He taught the Art of Debate in Ancient Greece from approximately 481-411 B.C. and is still regarded as the Father of the Debate. "One can imagine an Athenian father wondering why he was laying out all those drachmas only to end up with a son who argued with him at dinner," writes Frank McCall.
In the United States, the tradition of political debate goes back to a punishing series of seven, count 'em, seven debates Abraham Lincoln and his challenger, Senator Stephen Douglas, undertook in 1858. This started our lively tradition of political debates undertaken by choice but not actually required by law nor the Constitution.
The debates are intended to sway voters who might be on the fence...though how anyone could be on the fence, especially during this election, is beyond me and mine!
Kamala Harris in Debate: Her Condescension to (Apparently) Stupid America and VP Pence Knows No Bounds
I approached the Vice Presidential debate this evening with one question: "What is Kamala Harris like?" I'd conveniently missed the primary debates so my impression of the woman was basically unformed.
Unformed but not unbiased. No one is unbiased as the tenor of moderator Susan Page's questions clearly showed.
I've heard the usual tittle-tattle about Kamala's personal life, but being a MAGA Conservative, I'm focused on the issues, not personalities. I already know what Kamala stands for, or rather doesn't stand for, Protection of the unborn coming to mind.
Still, being an inveterate people watcher, I wanted to know how Kamala would come off during the Vice Presidential debate against one of the most active, visible and loudly Christian Vice Presidents in recent memory. I know Donald Trump ain't no gentleman, thank God, because he took names and kicked Joe's ass in the last debate.
How would Kamala relate to Mike Pence?
