Election Debates? Why Bother.

Another presidential debate? Honestly, at this point, why bother? Don’t get me wrong, I’m as political as they come. I eat it up as much as the next politico, hang on every word, read between the lines, and debate the finer points with my fellow nerds for weeks. I have no lack of interest in watching two mediocre communicators interrupt each other and try to make each other appear more ridiculous than themselves. What I’m saying is, why bother calling it a debate? Remember the days when presidential debates were about substantive public policy issues? Maybe… Remember when the presidential… Keep Reading

What Donald Trump Should Have Said To America

It’s become increasingly likely that the election is already over, and Donald Trump will lose to Hillary Clinton. However, there does remain a few glimmers of hope – one being the insurgent candidacy of Evan McMullin, and his “deny 270” strategy, the other being Trump’s withdrawal from the race. During the final debate with Hillary Clinton, when the candidates were given time to make a closing statement, in the interest of preserving the United States of America, and preventing the catastrophic damage a Clinton Presidency would unleash, Donald Trump should have used all his time (and take all the time he needed) to… Keep Reading

The First Presidential Debate: The Crook Vs. The Clod

The first debate between the two least-admired nominees in electoral memory was a puerile display; an embarrassing 90-minute bum fight detrimental to the viewing public and inimical to a Republic which once had higher standards. At the end of 90 minutes, it is clear that Trump knows little to nothing about foreign policy, global economics, and how the Constitution works; while Hillary knows little to nothing about integrity, honesty and how the Constitution works. They are – both of them – unfit for the office, with Hillary being worse. Yes, Lester Holt asked Trump many negative questions (about tax returns, the “birther” issue, the… Keep Reading

WATCH: Trump Vs. #NeverTrump

Something sorely lacking in the Trump/#NeverTrump debate is, well, debate. Most people only sally out briefly on social media to make their case, before quickly retreating back to their support group – and that doesn’t help anyone sort out the truth of the matter. But as the specter of Hillary rises over the nearing November election and Trump continues to trail in the polls, the urgency of winning over #NeverTrump Republicans is becoming apparent. The problem for Team Trump is that some people really mean never. This debate addresses the questions of the Supreme Court, Trump’s “outsider” status, viable options… Keep Reading

The Debate Republicans Deserve

As we approach tonight’s Republican debate, sure to be a spectacle similar to the last three awkward attempts to manage the political equivalent of a starting football lineup, it’s worth mentioning that debates don’t have to be this way. Late last week Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal challenged Senator Ted Cruz to debate Obamacare mano y mano in a response to the latter’s assertion that he would debate “anyone, anywhere”.  Though the move was a clear attempt by Jindal to lash his sinking dinghy to the surging Cruz ship, he served the ball directly into Cruz’s court in such a way… Keep Reading
