- in a building
I hope you are right. I warned my wife this morning that I'd be buying way more ammoTrump, or his 'guys' are no idiots. I'm hoping this was by design. Remember Romney destroyed Obama in debate #1, and in #2 he came double prepared and the moderators were in the bag for him? People have short memories. They will only probably remember the last debate. Reagan tanked his first Mondale debate in '84.
What I'm saying is that perhaps they didn't go for the jugular this time, knowing that if she did not have a good showing, they would double their efforts in the next debate.
Let him survive #1 intact, give her a sense of "it's in the bag".
I agree, he did not look as composed as he probably should have. She has been doing these debates for at least 15 years, been exposed to the process for at least 35. I didn't expect DT to win at all.
After watching though, I did find it odd that her answers seemed scripted. She can think on her feet, but she is nowhere in the same league as Bill was in that regard. She either had a heads up on the questions, or she had an earpiece, or both.
I"m hoping this was all by design, because even though DT is far from ideal, he's all we've got, and if he performs like that in the next two, he is toast, and it's time to max out my credit cards on my preps/
