Who is planning to watch tonight's debate?

You can't see it, but I just raised my hand.

I want to see if Biden can maintain.  He has had some struggles lately.  At times, he has had a hard time stringing two sentences together or staying on track.  It will be interesting to see how he does tonight.

It will also be interesting to see if Trump goes after him to try to rattle him.  I don't think it's possible to rattle Trump, as he has had so many hard interviews and questions thrown at him.

    I won't because all it'll do is piss me off and I have a dance class tonite. My wife will watch it and report the highlights.

    I don't have a television so I'll listen in on the radio. It's going to be pure comedy.

    I'm gonna watch it just in case Biden's cheese slips off his cracker and he goes ballistic on Trump. Maybe Joe will challenge him to a pushup contest or to a fistfight on stage. I suspect he'll be a lost ball in high weeds within 30 minutes or less. Any way you look  at it, it's gonna be comedy gold.

    What Tennmike said.  I'm going to watch it partially for comic relief, and partially to see what the enemy camp is plotting.  Trump has already said that he thinks they're going to give Joe a shot in the butt with some sort of attention-enhancing stimulant (Adderall?) which will keep him "sharp(er)" for two hours, after which he'll deflate like a punctured beach ball, but at least that should make for a more interesting debate.  Technically at least, things could go either way.  These are unsettling times.

    I'm betting that Biden will drop some not so politically correct nouns as his anger meter goes off the rails.

    That thar's funny! Unfortunately, its a virtual class - "Cardio Belly Dance": a mix of Belly Dance, aerobic exercises, with a bit of Yoga. Kicks my ass...
    Besides, the red jeep is "down" at the moment, I'm re-doing the battery tray/tie down; I'd take the Mercedes.

    I'm not. My wife goes off the rails anytime Trump opens his mouth. OTOH, she can't stand Biden, and she loathed Sanders. I've tried to point out that, even though in our sixties, we've never had the chance to vote (except for once) for anything except the lesser of two evils.

    She says it shouldn't be that way. I tell her it always has been and even if distasteful...you've gotta pick a side. And I leave the room. It ain't worth it.

    I'm going to TRY to watch it. If I manage too, I expect the previously mentioned comedic GOLD. However, I give it a 50-50 chance of making it through the initial BS long enough for the comedy to begin.

    I'd say the fence sitters aren't gonna hop from where they're sitting. This is painful. Can someone explain why Trump didn't condemn white supremacists when he had an easy opportunity?
  • BigslugBigslug Senior Member Posts: 8,395 Senior Member
    Can somebody explain why Trump can't just shut the hell up?  I would not have thought it possible to lose a debate to Joe Biden, but he's managing it. :s

    Watched a few parts in CNN. As always trump acted as a bully that couldn't allow his opponent finish a sentence, but that's part of his character so no surprises. 

    Biden seemed to struggle to keep coherent and had that "lost in space look" with eyes focusing the nothingness.

    Post debate comments were a laugh, with the stage full of evident pro-democrat "analysts"; in CNN en español they simply avoided translating a noticeable chunk of Trump's commentaries and answers....what a shameful favoritism!

    Local talking heads (most pinkos) said that Trump was obnoxious and racist....betcha half of them wouldn't understand even half of what he said.

    Wish we had Trump as president here. Even Biden would be 100 times better of what we usually pick!
