It was quite a strong contrast. Clinton articulated her answers very well, in a forward looking way. I can also see her positions have shifted, thoughtfully, in response to the electorate. She doesn't say anything she cannot back up, either by reason, experience, or a combination of the two. She already has my vote, and now has my considerable respect. There was no artifice or parsing answers from her last night. She was the real deal, and I thought she handled the onslaught of cow pies from her opponent very well - She said she would take the high road during the debate, and she did. Trump, on the other hand, has learned absolutely nothing, about domestic or foreign issues, or addressing the needs of the country. He is exactly in the same place, with his diatribes and finger-pointing, as he was 18 months ago. No advancement, or maturity, or growth. Some old locker room guy, hangin' with his locker room buddies. He is now developing a sort of who cares? nonchalance about losing. He knows it is over. I had the distinct impression when I saw him up on the stage at the start of the debate that he just wanted to be anywhere else, doing anything else than what he had to do for the next 90 minutes. He was as nervous and uncomfortable as I've ever seen anyone. I think his bully-boy personhood that is all that he is has had enough. He doesn't want to play anymore. It has all ceased being fun and he can't wait for it to be over so he can go back to doing what he can do with impunity - which is screw whoever he likes literally and figuratively. Only one problem, people know what he is now and his future doesn't look too bright to me. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <awoelflebater@...> wrote : ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <olliesedwuz@...> wrote : I actually enjoyed this debate more than the first one. Clinton ignored the doofus for the most part, and clearly articulated her position on numerous issues, able to inject substance. In direct contrast to Trump's monotonous drone, which always devolved into, "she's ugly too". He really looked like an oaf tonight. Didn't answer a single question directly - Clinton nailed them all. Granted, he did better than the first time, able to get out all his talking points, but it was strictly amateur night for Donnie. Those in his camp will no doubt applaud a little too enthusiastically, like the teacher always did for the slow kid in class. But it is game over. An underwhelming performance, that did the opposite of Clinton's skillful demonstration, and convinced exactly nobody of Trump's qualifications to be president. He certainly appeared nervous/agitated up there. He couldn't sit still or stand still and kept hovering over her, at least it appeared that way from the camera angle. He is an oaf of a man. While he got in his digs he is without substance and keeps repeating the same old lines over and over again - all sound and fury and no real meat on the bone. What a dangerous and noxious buffoon. November 8 seems a lifetime away.
