Help!!! I don't know if I can watch tonight's debate. The bar is so high for Biden . . . one gaff or

miss statement and the press, public and GOP will eat him alive. No such standard for dRump . . . he just needs one zinger that will resonate and his supporters will embrace him enthusiastically.

1. It's not as dire as all that.

The people are a little sharper than recent history might suggest.

28. Chris Christie is supposed to be Trump's debate coach--

And is already leaking (it's probably him) how Trump refuses to prepare, that they can't get him to sit still for more than 30 minutes, that his entire prep has been less than 4 hours....

That is, already he's making excuses for failing to prep Trump.

7. The debate won't change most people's mind

Iím not really worried, just not sure I want to listen to trump that long.

Anyone undecided doesnít have any recognizable form of logic. The temperature of the alien squids from outer space is just as likely to change their minds.

10. Nonsense

Trump's supporters will embrace him no matter what.

Do you really think Biden can't handle Trump? He destroyed both Sarah Palin and Paul Ryan in the VP debates. And that was without much material to show how bad they really were.

Trump has given 4 years of disasters in all areas. My only worry is that Joe will run out of time kicking Trump all over the place.

13. Incorrect-- The bar is very low for Biden-- thanks to Trump and Rudy

They claim that Biden has dementia-- so just making sense wins the debate for Joe, no matter any misstatement.

17. Joe will be measured and calm.

The MF will call Biden names and smear Hunter. He will deny calling our veterans suckers and losers. He will say he did a great job on Covid. He will lie his ass off like he always does. If he avoids a full mental breakdown the MSM will call him the winner. None of what happens tonight will change anybody's mind. His cult will love anything he does and says. We will get up tomorrow and be a day closer to voting the MF and his band of thieves out of our house. GOTV.

Joe will do just fine. Heís spent a lifetime of debating stuff of substance and Trump has spent a lifetime of bullshitting. Yes anything can happen but we know Joe has prepped for this thing and we know Trump has done nothing but go with his stupid gut, being the lazy disorganized asshole that he is.

That should give you full confidence for Joe.

31. The pressure is all on trump

If the polling has been accurate, all Joe has to do is not make any glaring errors to cause people on his side to switch over to trump. Trump, on the other hand, NEEDS to win people over from Biden to him. That's going to be hard to do. Most people have already firmly made up their minds and there are very few undecided voters. If most of the undecided voters went to trump ( doubtful), it wouldn't be enough to make up the difference where it counts.
Joe can play rope a dope all night long and let trump himself out open himself up for a few timely gut punches.

I just can't stand hearing Fuck Weasel Trumps voice for more than a few minutes. I get annoyed and start screaming which disturbs the dog. I will follow on the open thread here and on twitter and keep the sound off. I'm old..and I don't need to stroke out because of that Asses BS.
