Commentary on the Trump-Clinton debate, 10/09/2016

American Thinker:
Will America Wake Up and Smell the Coffee with Trump’s Blunt Truths?  . . . "All that was required after the disaster (others say miscalculation) of Iraq, was a simple continued Status Of Forces Agreement that was already in place at the time, a resolution was not even necessary.  It was already there.  And there would have been no regional cave in and neither any other falling dominoes, even what's happening in Europe.  But no, it was early withdrawal, just like in Viet Nam where there were consequently millions of casualties there as well, due to the same populism then as now." . . .

Oops! Hillary Forgets the Constitution . . . "Without going over the entire debate, the  question about the Supreme Court  provided the answer that mattered.  Hillary did not mention the Constitution; it never occurred to her because she has been party to its shredding throughout the Obama administration." . . .

It was a do or die debate for Trump  . . . "He had pounded his smarmy, pre-packaged, self-righteous opponent and his critics into the ground. He left the stage having turned the tide."

Legal Insurrection:
Mika Rips Republicans Who Dumped Trump: ‘Pathetic, Weak, Spineless’ MSNBC?

Debate No. 2 Quick Reaction – Trump won  . . . "And he didn’t immediately counterattack on Bill Clinton’s sexual abuse and harassment and Hillary’s complicity. He waited, whether deliberately or not, until Hillary repeatedly attacked him on the tape and the moderators seemed to have to pull it out of him.

"But when he did attack, because he didn’t do it immediately, laid out the case against Bill and Hillary quite well." . . .


National Review
Andrew C. McCarthy: Trump’s Special-Prosecutor Promise Is Not a Criminalization of Politics
"The Obama Justice Department’s ‘investigation’ of Hillary Clinton was the real banana-republic event."
. . . "This is manifestly not a case of banana-republic criminalization of politics. Trump was not threatening to go after Clinton because she has the temerity to oppose him politically. He was committing to have a special prosecutor investigate Clinton for mishandling classified information, destroying government files, and obstruction of justice — criminal misconduct that has nothing to do with being a political adversary of Trump’s, and for which others who commit similar felonies go to jail." . . .
On a Bizarre Night, Trump Comes Through Okay  . . . "Moderator Martha Raddatz detests Donald Trump, didn’t hide it much at all, and she seemed to want to debate Trump herself. That was an exceptionally unwise approach to the role of moderator, in part because it validated his complaint from earlier in the evening that it would be “three on one." . . .

David French: Donald Trump Lives to Lose Another Day

Daily Caller:  An Aggressive Donald Trump Uses Debate To Show Critics He Isn’t Leaving Race  " . . .Sessions added. “I’d say the choice couldn’t be clearer. And I believe the Republican voters are going to see that, and I believe he’s going to see a big surge in his support among Republicans after this night.' ”

Here’s Who Won The Debate, According To The Internet  "The pollster Frank Luntz tweeted that 16 members of his focus group determined Trump the winner, while six of them thought Clinton was."
