And just because you like him doesn't mean he won.

And I said as much in the last debate because I'm not blind and deaf. For the record I don't like him much but I love love LOVE what he's doing.

Keep on living in la la land dude and ignore that he's promised to get a special prosecutor on Hillary's tail if he's elected (+100) and was much more specific about the level of Billary's corruption towards women many young folks here are too indoctrinated to know about (+20).

TKO tonight! Woo hoo!

Good to know you're not a citizen and so your opinion doesn't matter.

This is a win

Poll respondents favored Clinton 57% to 37%, according to CNN.

But 63% said Trump did better than they expected he would.

You might disagree with the first part. But the second part is what makes the debate a win for Trump.

I just got caught up. My take... The Don won. He was a dick, but an effective dick. Hillary had to do more than just tell people to fact check. She has to call or specific lies and say they were blatant terrible lies, and say he should be ashamed of himself. Normally, you might not need to do that, but she let him get away with too much. The carried interest bit was rich. She did win the tax issue, but could have been better. Donald's biggest fear was staying focused and on point (for him) for 90 minutes. I was surprised.
Personally, I think Hillary's answers were more truthful and better. But for the general audience, he just grabbed her by the vag and tossed her across the room.

But Murdoch would never interfere with the journalistic integrity of Fox News, right?

Rashomon says

That's a bizarre perspective to take. It isn't fighting fire with fire to trot out what the HUSBAND of the actual candidate did.

Not at all. And I specifically said that he needs to NOT make it about what Bill did, but what Hillary did to cover up his transgressions. Several women have said that Hillary bullied them. That's the story that needs to be put out there. Hillary's role in the coverups and the bullying tactics to get rid of the very types of victims she now claims to champion.

Rashomon says

because he trotted out a few insulting lines as if that is what is going to impact the well being of the country

1. because he said a few _truths_ hardly ever heard on prime time TV

2. mostly likely it will not impact the country - too much propaganda and too many idiots

From the transcript, DT: "Iran now and Russia are now against us. So she wants to fight. She wants to fight for rebels. There's only one problem. You don't even know who the rebels are.

Moderator: Mr. Trump...your two minutes is up.

DT: One thing I have to say. I don't like Assad at all but Assad is killing ISIS. Russia is killing ISIS. And Iran is killing ISIS. And those three have now lined up because of our weak foreign policy.

MR: Mr. Trump, let me repeat the question. If you were president, what would you do about Syria and the humanitarian crisis in Aleppo? I want to remind you what your running mate said. He said provocations by Russia need to be met with American strength and if Russia continues to be involved in air-strikes along with the Syrian government forces of Assad, the United States of America should be prepared to use military force to strike the military targets of the Assad regime.

DT: Okay. He and I haven't spoken and I disagree.

MR: You disagree with your running mate.

DT: Right now, Syria is fighting ISIS. We have people that want to fight both at the same time. But Syria is no longer Syria. Syria is Russia and Iran who she made strong and Kerry and Obama made into a very powerful nation and very rich nation, very, very quickly. Very, very quickly.

I believe we have to get ISIS. We have to worry about ISIS before we can get too much more involved. She had a chance to do something with Syria. They had a chance. That was the line."

Both candidates avoided describing what happened in Syria while Hillary Clinton was the Secretary of State. "The rat line, authorised in early 2012, was used to funnel weapons and ammunition from Libya via southern Turkey and across the Syrian border to the opposition. Many of those in Syria who ultimately received the weapons were jihadists, some of them affiliated with al-Qaida... By the terms of the agreement, funding came from Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia and Qatar; the CIA, with the support of MI6, was responsible for getting arms from Gaddafi’s arsenals into Syria. A number of front companies were set up in Libya, some under the cover of Australian entities... The operation had not been disclosed at the time it was set up to the congressional intelligence committees and the congressional leadership, as required by law since the 1970s. The involvement of MI6 enabled the CIA to evade the law by classifying the mission as a liaison operation." For further background as to why the Clintons' Saudi sponsors wanted regime change in Syria, read about the origin of invade&import.

Conclusion: The comments by DT quoted above appear accurate, and show that he should not have agreed to Pence for VP. In my opinion, Pence is on the ticket because Lucifer the Canadian Cruzader and other theocrats packed the convention with religious fanatics who can't accept the fact that a religion can be bad. Nearly all of the rebels are religious; the effort to organize a secular rebel group failed, because it couldn't recruit enough fighters. Where DT says HC doesn't know who the rebels are, he's being surprisingly charitable, presuming she doesn't know how many are Al Qaida, Al Nusra, and others equally bad.

Seeing the two of them together talking and being themselves for 90 minutes is an interesting contrast for the American people.

trump lied a lot more than Hillary. As if that is a surprise to anyone not fucking brain dead...

His basic premise was "everything is terrible, the worst ever, I'll fix it and make it great but don't you fucking dare ask me how, cause I absolutely will not give an actual plan, even if you follow up and ask me how..."

so in other words, an appeal to stupid fucks who can't think, like most of patrick.net, and, hopefully not enough of Murika to win...

Good to know you're not a citizen and so your opinion doesn't matter.

The difference is that I don't have any direct chips in the game, so I am not swayed by all the partisan bullshit that is thrown around. You seem to think this debate mattered. I don't. It won't have changed anyone's opinions about these two candidates. The choice is clear. The man you like is unsuited to be president both intellectually and temperamentally. That doesn't make Clinton a good candidate - it just makes her a better one than him.

Trump is right. The system is rigged against the American people.
No one wants to come to America anymore. Everyday people are fleeing the country in droves. We need a border wall to keep people in country, so we can continue to milk them.

She's trying to communicate how ridiculous his statements were. I felt like she had to grab the bull by the lower horn, and stand up for herself. She obviously felt it would be better to discount his rants as ridiculous raving by a clown candidate. We'll see how it worked.

It's the same goofy smile she put on through every hearing she ever had.

She was smiling because she knew Comey had it fixed. So she was lauging at Gowdy.
The same way she's laughing at Trump and the American voter because she already knows between the machines being rigged, dead voters, and foriegn voter drive from Soros.
She's got this in the bag. The only way Trump wins is if he can get her arrested in the next 30 days.

Trump won the debate. It wasn't the final knockout hit the opposition was hoping for. He successfully started to turn and shift the focus away from his "locker room" talk. Hillary only managed typical talking point replies. I turned it off somewhere on Syria.

That said, Trump didn't win any significant amount of votes here. He had the best lines and the worst lines. In reality, last week the election was lost and political support continues to flee away from Trump. There was nothing in last night that changed the game in Trump's favor in any significant way. Hillary will continue to measure 4-6% higher, or more, just as she has done for the past many months. No game changer either side.

Also, in my mind, that was the least debate like debate I have ever seen. The beginning was pretty horrific: some reality TV stunt crap there, to be sure.

Entertaining debate. Compared to the first debate where he got absolutely annihilated, Trump had an improved showing during debate#2. He still reminds me of 4th grader giving a book report to his class for the first time ever and I can’t believe that with all the smart, polished, sharp, accomplished individuals in this country, we are choosing between these two. Few thoughts:

- No question Trump won the zinger battle with the crowd pleasing jail-time and Abraham Lincoln lines. Yes ladies and gentlemen, our country is full of so many bumbling idiots that insults seem to heavily influence the polls in 2016. I guess a significant fraction of our country can better process jabs than they can policy.

- Hillary saying that when people hit below the belt, she will take the high road. Then the very next sentence starting a 2minutes below the belt “Andrew Golota-like” combo onto Trumps nuts, lol. And during this delivery, a house fly lands right on her spackle caked face lol. Get that fly on the Republican committee.

- The Muslim gal asking Trump what he’ll do for Muslim Americans who are just here for a better life… Trump doubles down, looks her in the eye, and spends 2minutes talking about how problematic and dangerous radical Islam is to the USA and how we have to secure our borders, LOL. I thought I was watching an SNL skit. Where was Ashton Kutcher to jump out and tell her she just got punked?

- Trump bringing a team of Bill’s accusers to the debate, wow, truly nothing is off limits during this election. I wasn’t sure how this was going to go for either side but Bill’s face while Trump introduced the women was beyond intense. And of course the media has no shame as they do extended zoom-ins right onto Bill’s grill. Trump was more subtle with the accuser topic than I expected as if to say, “Hillary, anymore of these decade old tapes get released, and we are gonna get explicit with the details”. Again, terrible, like flashing a gun during a dispute. Hillary does have that cold bitterness about her that only 35yrs worth of infidelity can bring on, terrible. She must hate Bill with all her soul.

Yes. Turnabout is fair play, and people aren't interested in policy or Hillary would have 10% support, all of it from DC and Wall Street and California Tech and Defense Company employees. This is somebody who called the Gang of 8 Bill that would have expanded H1-Bs several times over, a great example of compromise.

It's also interesting the mainstream press has avoided any discussion of her plans to give Green Cards to all Foreign STEM Students graduating from US Universities, "Stapled to their Diploma" - automatically.

A Media that is "All In" for Hillary can't possibly complain after dredging up and focusing exclusively on some shit talking from 11 years ago, that it's not acceptable for Trump to bring in 4 different people, from different places in the country at different times, who all claim Clinton assaulted them.

Yeah, she shouldn't try to use Obama's line. It doesn't fit her, even if she is taking a comparatively high road. If she didn't want to answer directly, she should have said that she refused to join Donald in the gutter where he likes to dwell.

This piece on body language is one reason why I thought she had to grab him by the metaphorical balls at some point and assert herself. I think that the way to do it while not looking like him is to continue to go over her time limit (as the article says). When McSniffles complains, she should state that he used up his and her time by interrupting, and that she was making sure that she got a fair time allotment.
