New: Commission on Presidential Debates says "last nightís debate made clear that additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues."

Ted Lieu has another take:

Former Gov. Marc Racicot to vote for Biden

Former Montana governor and Republican National Committee Chair Marc Racicot on Tuesday said he would not vote for President Donald Trump, citing Trump's character as fault enough to vote for Democrat challenger Joe Biden on Nov. 3.

Racicot, 72, shared the revelation in an interview with Brian Kahn, host of Home Ground, broadcast Tuesday evening on Yellowstone Public Radio. He offered up no specific praise for former Vice President Biden, but spoke of qualities such as patience, decency and openness to contrary opinion, qualities Racicot suggested are absent in the Trump administration, as the reason for voting against the Republican president.

"I regret that I will cause consternation perhaps in some corners, but even as a Republican, I will not be supporting Donald Trump for president, and I will not be voting for him," Racicot said. "That means I will be voting for Joe Biden for president. Ö I'm not going to march lockstep with him every step of the way or with the administration. I'll have disagreements, I'm certain. But the content of a man's character or a woman's character to serve in that capacity is more important than any other issue that I have to consider as a matter of conscience."

Racicot did not cite any specific examples. However, a recently-released portion of a book by Bob Woodward showed Trump misled the public about the severity of COVID-19. The president has been accused of sexual misconduct by at least 26 women since the 1970s; he denies many accusations. A New York Times investigation showed he reduced his tax bill with "questionable measures," paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years," and yet portrayed himself as a successful businessman in his bid for president.


I have to give a hat tip to Chris Wallace.

He has really done a good job, so far. A pleasant surprise!

Bidens Release 2019 Returns, Paid Nearly $300,000 In Taxes

Source: Bloomberg

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden released his 2019 tax returns hours before the first debate with President Donald Trump, showing that he paid $299,346 in income taxes in 2019.

According to documents released by Bidenís campaign Tuesday, the former vice president and his wife, Jill, got a refund of $46,858 after paying $346,204 in income taxes. He reported a taxable income of $944,737, paying 31.7% of it in taxes.

The Bidensí released the tax documents two days after a New York Times report that Trump, a billionaire, paid $750 in incomes taxes in both 2016 and 2017. The newspaper said it has not analyzed his most recent tax data.

Trump has defied decades of practice by U.S. presidents by refused to release his tax returns, incorrectly saying he cannot release them because he is under audit. He has dismissed the New York Times reporting, saying he has paid millions in real estate and payroll taxes.
