    Clinton and Trump fighting over whether or not NAFTA is good or bad and whether or not Hillary is a a fat liar who supports NAFTA. Hillary plugging her book šŸ˜‚.

      I thought so too. He could have buried her several times and forgot to bring the shovel. He also spent too much time responding to personal attacks and way too much about Hannity and Iraq.

          True and nobody will remember this debate anyway, but this wasn’t one of his best debates.

            We all want her destroyed, but it won’t happen in a debate. It’ll happen when Trump wins.

            Trump did OK. He didn’t hurt himself. He got in some zingers. He didn’t look scary. He talked very knowledgeably about economics, trade, taxes, etc.

            I chalk this up as a WIN for Trump. We’ll see what the ratings actually are, but if 100 million people really saw Trump tonight, with a lot possibly for the first time, great! This was a great exposure for him.

            Yes, he had opportunities to really crush her, and he may have missed them, but he didn’t say anything that will come back to haunt him, he kept his composure, and he looked the part.

            Hillary didn’t do terribly, but she did look medicated and a bit off. She faded throughout the debate, didn’t look terribly steady at the end going down the stairs to her family/audience, and didn’t really do anything to help her case.

            Everyone knows who Hillary is, supporters, detractors, and undecideds. There are a lot fo people who still believe the lies about Trump, and tonight should be a step in the right direction countering them.

            Net WIN for Trump, nothing ground breaking. Trump should continue to gain in the polls.

      Back, catching up. I agree, he had many opportunities. Debate is not his strong suit. Even with the high IQ, seems to me he’d be better.
      Not spouting off, but seems that many here, and next door, would do a much finer job. Then again, he always comes out smelling like a rose.

    In the next debate, Trump needs to stand taller at the podium, stop shaking his head, and when Hilllabeast says “we have to understand the problem ” that political speech for not doing anything, let her go on with the personal attacks, link her with Obola and failed policies, then smack her down with her negativity, bring Benghazi, failed to answer the 3am phone call and other hits on her.
    Trump has won the poll over at Drudge……… Now the VP needs to be the attack dog…… Get after her record, Trump needs several Attack Dogs…..

        He used an econonmy of force approach. I think the win, if he gets it, will largely be people undecided now who make that choice as their fingers hover over the buttons in November. Hardcore on both sides is decided, bet he doesn’t want those fence-sitters looking at a picture of him, in their minds, nuking a sick old homicidal witch.
