Town Hall Debate: My take on Round 2

I like many others watched the “great” debate and what I took out of it was probably different then most. I was embarrassed for the candidates. You might call it a debate but I call it a civil war. Yep, there was little or no civility displayed and little respect for each other.

In my opinion, I think the undecided voter is minimal, with no more then 2% truly undecided. There is a distinct difference between the candidates no matter what side you support so I just can’t imagine many are truly undecided.

In my opinion this debate was the worst I have ever watched. Asked questions turned in to rhetoric by both candidates with not much substance. I don’t know or care who might be declared the winner of this production because I was disappointed in how they handled themselves. I found myself cringing at times as they looked like angry birds pecking away. They both acted like Joe Frazier fighting against Ali. They circled each other,  being overly aggressive, swinging wildly and I the voter was the one pounded into the corner. I am punch drunk with a mild contusion from all the blows below the belt.

In the end, neither scored a point with me. In some ways, I am probably like the majority of you, I know who I am voting for and these things make little difference to those of us who have already made up our mind. For me it was like watching a Hollywood production, choreographed from the start. When I think about it, in Hollywood, they would call it a stinker or a bomb.

So from that wild Axel Rose, I have stolen these lines from a song Civil War

Look in the doubt we’ve wallowed
Look at the leaders we’ve followed
Look at the lies we’ve swallowed
And I don’t want to hear no more
