The Non-Debate

CAL THOMAS COMMENTRY OCTOBER 1, 2020

         THE DEFINITION OF RUDE IS ONE WAY TUESDAY NIGHT’S DEBATE BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND JOE BIDEN CAN BE CHARACTERIZED: “DISCOURTEOUS OR IMPOLITE, ESPECIALLY IN A DELIBERATE WAY; WITHOUT CULTURE, LEARNING OR REFINEMENT; ROUGH IN MANNERS OR BEHAVIOR, UNMANNERLY; UNCOUTH.

         THE SO-CALLED DEBATE WAS ALL OF THOSE AND MORE. THE NAME CALLING WOULD HAVE MADE MY GRANDMOTHER WASh THEIR MOUTHS OUT WITH SOAP. PRESIDENT TRUMP’S CONSTANT INTERRUPTIONS DID NOT HELP MAKE HIS CASE FOR A SECOND TERM. PRAGMATICALLY, HE HELPED BIDEN AVOID MORE THAN A FEW GAFFES. BIDEN CALLING THE PRESIDENT A “LIAR,” “A RACIST” AND “A CLOWN” MADE HIM LOOK WEAK.

         WHERE WAS THE GREAT DEBATE ON SOCIALISM VS. CAPITALISM? BIDEN CLAIMED HE IS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, NOT BERNIE SANDERS WITH WHOM HIS CAMPAIGN HELPED WRITE A DOCUMENT THAT LOOKS LIKE BIG GOVERNMENT, HIGH TAX SOCIALISM TO ME.

         TRUMP WAS RIGHT ABOUT HIS POLICIES, BUT HIS PERSONALITY IS WHAT WILL OFFEND THE DWINDLING NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO REMAIN UNDECIDED. IT WOULD BE A TRAGEDY IF PERSONALILTY TRIUMPHS OVER POLICY BECAUSE BIDEN’S POLICIES WOULD RUIN THE COUNTRY. I’M CAL THOMAS.
