As you watch tonight's debate, realize that both parties did their best to nominate candidates who represent the will of their corporate owners, not we, the people. The Democrats succeeded and coronated Hillary Clinton, thanks to questionable primaries and other unethical tactics. The Republicans failed because they did everything possible to nominate one of their party line, free market, job offshoring corporate zombies but instead they got Trump. Like it or not, Donald Trump represents the will of the GOP populist base. Like it or not, he represents the collective will of the majority of GOP voters, not backroom party hacks!
If we had an ethical Democratic Party, Bernie Sanders would be running against Donald Trump and we would have a meaningful choice. As you watch tonight's fiasco, realize that America deserves better. Let's vow to work together to break stranglehold that the corporate figurehead duopoly has on a system that passes for democracy our country.
I have been following your career for years and came to the realization that your ideas and ideals closely match my own ideals and ideas. You always seem to be there fighting the good fight for the little guy or gal. You are a man of complete integrity and a refreshing change from most of the other folks who occupy various offices in Washington. As such, it is in my self-interest to do everything that I can to see to it that you win the Democratic primaries, become the Democratic Party's standard-bearer and win the 2016 Presidential elections.
As such, please let me offer you a word of advice – Go on the attack during the second debate tonight! American voters have thick skulls and misinterpreted your being a gentleman by not attacking Hillary during the first debate as passivity and weakness. Hillary Clinton did not take the high road during the first debate when she attacked you on the gun control issue. I'm sure that Hillary's handlers watched your early rallies and town halls and latched onto the gun control issue as your Achilles's heel when they saw those protesters. As a matter of fact, I wonder if a few of those protesters weren't Hillary or Hillary supporter plants?
Since she latched onto the gun control issue, one issue that she distorted, magnified and used over and over again, and tried to play the “I am woman” card, Hillary now falls into the category of people in glass houses so feel free to use some of the following suggestions.
Here are a few of Hillary Clinton's vulnerabilities:
Bill Clinton's horrible record of deregulation that, to name a few:
The point of all this is that thanks to a corporate owned mainstream media, who wants to portray you as a weak non-candidate and a Hillary campaign machine that is fully prepared to play gutterball and latch onto anything they could to distract from the fact that Hillary is nothing more than an old-fashioned corporate backed machine politician, you have a real fight on your hands. I know that you want to take the high road, but at this stage, you can't because Clinton's people will see to it that voters mistake your kindness for your weakness! Now get out there tonight and fight because America's future depends on you!
If you heard a echo during the final Presidential debate, it was just Mitt Romney changing his positions again to become more palatable to rational voters. At times, he sounded like a human echo chamber, repeating everything that the President said. Other times, Romney contradicted his previous positions. The reason for the contradictions is that in a debate environment, Willard doesn't have the luxury of being all things to all people, privately telling one group something and another group the exact opposite. Translation, all of those pesky facts finally caught up to him.
Bob Schieffer did a superb job moderating the debate, creating a dignified debating environment where the truth was king and anything else was glaringly obvious. Bob performed a valuable service to our country because the outcome of the final debate should give rational voters their marching orders by proving that their is only one viable choice for President - Barack Obama!
Candy Crowley did an outstanding job moderating the second Presidential debate. Did you notice that she had a prominently displayed timer that was similar to the one I mentioned on Show 100 of The Jack Wade Show? Kudos to her for strictly enforcing the time limits. She didn't even need the automatic microphone cut off feature mentioned on my show.
Ms. Crowley maintained a level playing field where pre-rehearsed theatrics and talking over your opponent won't work. Mitt Romney can't function in that kind of environment, by environment I mean a fair debate. Once you strip away the canned answers, rehearsed attacks and coached orchestrated strategies, it becomes apparent that Romney has nothing that will help the average American. He is just a shill for corporations and his fellow wealthy elites! On the road, Romney can have his speeches tailored to tell each group what they want to hear and be all things to all people. In a properly run debate, the facts are king and a Romney is a pauper.
Summing it all up, in a fair fight, facts win and liars like Romney lose!
The Biden/Ryan debate will probably be remembered for two things, the intermittent broad grin that swept over Joe Biden's face and Paul Ryan nervously clutching and gulping his glass of water. Joe Biden's grin that occasionally bordered on out and out laughter was his reaction to Paul Ryan's out and out lies that were so blatant that they insulted the intelligence of the American voter. Paul Ryan's glass of water was the liquid version of the needle in a lie detector test swinging frantically to indicate a lie. I can almost hear what was going through Ryan's head as his heart raced and his palms became sweaty, "He got me! (gulp) How do I come up with a supporting argument for my last line of b.s.? (gulp) HELP!"
What a difference a week and a new moderator makes! Unlike Jim Lehrer, Martha Raddatz set and enforced firm ground rules and asked revealing questions that put the kibosh on any possible canned and scripted attacks coming from the GOP side. Although you will hear lots of moaning coming from the Republicans and some of their sycophantic supporters in the media, the truth prevailed last night. If that becomes a trend, we will become a nation of informed voters. I'm looking forward to the next debate. Thanks to Martha Raddatz's stellar performance, Candy Crowley has big shoes to fill.
Have you noticed that there's no one on Talk Radio who speaks for John and Jane Q. Public? I want to change that situation. When I go into the studio and get on the air, I say the things that you've always wanted to say. The big corporate interests have their lobbyists, I want to be your voice. Just think of me as your guy fighting for your interests.
Proud To Be On:
