Trump Could Not Have Been Much Better In The Debate

Maybe not a perfect game or even a no-hitter but Trump probably pitched a shutout. I will give credit to Hillary. She was on point and lawyerly. She does have here own atrocious record to defend, as well as the Obama economy and a conglomeration of issues that result in a 3/4's of America saying we are on the wrong track. With those obvious disadvantages, Hillary did well.

Trump, on the other hand, was masterful. Had he been this assertive in the first debate, the pundits might already be declaring him victorious. When asked about Obamacare, Trump worked in Jonathan Gruber and Obama's oft-repeated lie, "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period. If you like your plan..." Beautiful.

All of Trump's responses echoed a common theme that he is not just running against Hillary, he is running against a broken system, a system that is rigged for the benefit of insiders.

Oh, the press conference with four victims. Hillary later recited some babble about "When they go low, we go high." This after the weekend Billy Bush sleeze play? Hillary, you and your people could not find your way to the high road if we spotted you an Onstar GPS. There's an old saying about glass houses. Looks like two can take the low road, huh Bill?

Most heartening event of the weekend: Trump supporters, insulted by the ridiculous double standards of the MSM, show up at Trump Tower on Saturday to chant "Trump" and "USA". This was almost as much fun as the hecklers chanting "Trump" over Paul Ryan's empty words in Wisconsin. And the recurring "Bill Clinton is a rapist" meme is popping up at the most unexpected of places.

CNN insists Hillary won the second debate. I disagree. She is in trouble with or without more Wikileaks.
