The debate was a disaster for all plus Roger Maris hit # 61 in '61 10/01 by Silvio Canto Jr | Politics:
Another look back at debate # 1......the debate fell apart after the first segment........NBA ratings way down.......Roger Maris 1961........
and other stories......click to listen:
We will remember this debate for 3 reasons:
1) President Trump is often too aggressive. I understand that some people love that but interruptions are different than challenging your opponent;
2) Former Vice President Biden did not answer specific questions. How can a candidate avoid the "court packing" or "filibuster" questions? This is insane and the moderator should have called him on it.
He called Antifa an "idea." Can he explain that to the spouses of police officers getting bricks thrown at them?
He disowned the Sanders' Manifesto without removing it from his platform. Wonder how excited the left is this morning?
3) Chris Wallace blew it. Doesn't he know the difference between "absentee ballots" and just mailing out ballots to registered voters in some list that has not been cleaned up?
To be fair, I'm not sure that anyone would have done better than Mr. Wallace. He should have asked a question and let the candidates go at each other. Instead, he micro-managed and lost control.
It leaves me with one conclusion: Drop the moderators and let the American voters phone in their questions. Open up the phone lines and let Americans question the candidates.
My guess is that the questions will be better and there won't be a moderator to blame.
Who won? I'll give it to Trump on points, but drop the moderators, please.

Bonnie and Clyde were killed in 1934. Today, we remember that Bonnie was born on this day in 1910. I saw this new book and plan to check it out:
