    • It’s no secret that Raddetz is completely in the tank for Hillary, but her completely unprofessional pro-Hillary performance last night was breathtaking. Moderators are not supposed to be PR agents for the debaters.

        • Not in the least surprising, really. They are all in the tank for Hillary. Their support for her is seen and heard in every question, every “news” story, every commentary, every editorial. I wonder if these “reporters” will do a “news” story about how they are hopelessly compromised and corrupt to the core? Probably not. ;+} Great list! Thanks.

        • Thank you Swedish Lady. I have sent the link to a couple of believers in an unbiased press. Probably I’ll be kicked out of my family, but thank you anyway.

        • She was married to Ben Bradlee Jr., the son of the very Ben Bradlee who, as editor of the Washington Post, moved heaven and earth to destroy Richard Nixon in the Watergate affair. If Nixon had been a Democrat, Bradlee Sr. would have moved heaven and earth to bury the Watergate story and protect Nixon.

          She’s now married to Tom Gjelten, an NPR political hack and a member of the Council of Foreign Relations–a globalist lefty, progressive mess which, of course, completely supports Hillary. George Soros was (and I think still is) on the Board of Directors of the Council of Foreign Relations, so that explains a lot. It’s all a nice comfortable club for these morons who constantly move against the interests of the United States.

    • After that bimbo took the viewer’s question about how the campaign affected Trump and turned it into “Are you still a rapist?”, I was convinced this ‘debate’ was a complete nonsensical farce. Our country is in real trouble if so many people think this is acceptable.

      This is NOT acceptable. I know the left feels justified to act so unethically (because many of them are just plain evil), but the right and average people need to stand up and say “No”.

  1. Apparently, Trump did so well last night that it drove Hillary to drink.

    So, will the Cassius wing of the GOP buck up, suck up, and admit that their betrayals this weekend were a foul-up?

    • The GOP elites have completely lost the plot in this campaign. If they ever had it in the first place. Their intent was to support a GOP candidate who was guaranteed to lose (McCain, Romney in the past and probably Rubio, Cruz and the rest of this season’s R candidates, etc.) to Hillary. It’s what the R elites do: put up loser candidates. They failed this time with Trump and they will never forgive him for getting the nomination of the party. They have already joined forces with the Clinton campaign to destroy Trump and will work closely with the Clintons all the way to Election Day.

      I’ve never seen anything like this.

      • MT YOU MADE ME LAUGH, I LOVE IT! WHITE DEVIL! I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING, I REALLY NEEDED A LAUGH NOW BECAUSE OF WHATS HAPPENING TO TRUMP, BEING SET UP BY RYAN! RYAN PLANNED THIS FOR A LONG TIME AND THIS WAS RYAN’S PLOY TO GET THE ATTENTION INSTEAD OF TRUMP GETTING THE ATTENTION FOR HIS FANTASTIC SECOND DEBATE. ROT IN HELL, RYAN. I AM SURE YOU HAVE READ AND HEARD THIS ROT IN HELL COMMENT FOR A FEW DAYS NOW! YOU DESERVE IT, YOU MANIPULATING SON OF A SHE-DEVIL!

  2. There is joy in Mudville this morning.
    Never before has any Repub (or anyone)managed to level the Dem hate machine and bring down the Clintons.
    We were right. We sensed that MrTrump would never cower before any opponent. Last night was proof that a President Trump could and will do what he promises, no matter the opposition.
    “.you would be in jail.”
    A sucker punch long overdue.

    • If I may change the final verse of Thayers “Casey At The Bat”

      “Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
      The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
      And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
      But there is no joy in Mudville – mighty Hillary has struck out.”

    • loved when trump said if he were in charge she would be in jail. it was not only what he said but how he said it. It was great, a night to remember. Gave me a lot of pleasure when he kept calling her a liar, over and over. No matter what happens, Trump has brought out in the open all the corruption that exists and I only hope that he wins. Trump will win, only thing is the Obamas and Clintons and all the other traitors may rig it for her and they won’t even hide that either. There has to be some punishment for these corrupt criminals who use their government jobs for personal gain.

  3. Now I have seen the debate too. Trump did very, very well. He managed to give Hillary many real punches. He gave some most damaging information: The ex president, spouse of one of the candidates, meets with the Attorney General secretly, and after that, no charges against the candidate. But, will it be in the media ?? No, see my link above.We are only allowed to discuss a 10 year old locker room conversation.Conclusion, the US must be handed over to Hillary because of what Trump said privately on a bus 10 years ago.
    By the way, I have been somewhat worried about Pence and his position in the Syrian conflict, I can smell a neocon there. But, Trump was clear here, he has another opinion. I am relieved.

    • I said to my wife before the debate, I hope he takes the gloves off and goes right at her.
      He did.
      I loved it.
      Their attempts to destroy him are falling on fallow ground.

  4. Growing up on the farm. Of the hundreds of don’t ever do this again lessons, one is don’t walk behind an operating manure spreader. Or watch debates, same thing..

    • True. When we were kids we used to play baseball in the cow pasture (after the cows were back in the barn) and used old dry cow patties as bases when we played. Yup. We did. The trick was to make sure they were very, very dry ;+}.

  5. Final Jeopardy question: Name one thing you admire about your opponent?

    Best answer I read on the net:

    “I admire her ability to avoid prosecution.”

  6. No surprise that Obummer’s taking Columbus Day off and playing golf. By the way, he also played golf on Saturday in Chicago.

  7. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Keith for providing the link to the debate and the WHD crew for the great observation’s and comment’s.
    Best time this year and it’s not even Christmas.

  8. I am paraphrasing and summarizing.

    Ryan came out today and said he would not defend Trump. (he will support Hillary I say, he denies) He also “said” he will cede the Executive to the Democrats because he wants to retain majority in Congress who will then curtail abuse of the Clinton agenda.

    This is me, paraphrasing Ryan’s weasly words. Read them carefully. This is what he is saying. And he is a traitor and a liar.

    Ryan is beginning his 2020 Presidential Campaign. From now until his campaign officially starts he will be building alliances across the aisle.

    Republicans failed as an opposition party to Obama and they will fail as an opposition to Clinton, if they even try at this point.

    I will cast my last vote as a Republican for Trump. And I will vote issue or person on the down tickets from now on in. If a Democrat will do as good a job I will vote for the Democrat.

    I will work hard to defeat Paul Ryan and anyone who signs up to this traitorous self serving weasel who is gifting the the Presidency to the Democrats.

    We, the people, worked hard to get a Republican majority in Congress. And it was abused. And now used against us. Never again.

    Screw Paul Ryan and the RATs, in particular Jason Chaffetz and Mike Lee who should know better than others what a criminal Clinton is and how corrupt and destructive her rule will be. I am enraged. Even more so because Paul Ryan is abusing his power as Speaker to fortify his own political future in a time when America is in distress. Ring a bell — You can find the Ryan statement anywhere.

    And to all those, who moan “I don’t think he can win” — buck up. If you think you will lose, you will lose. If you think you can win, you generate another energy that might make that happen. But don’t lay down and let them take it from.

    • Ryan, Chaffetz and Lee represent what has been happening to the Republican party for many years now. Spineless, clueless, disloyal to the Party, desperately looking for someone who will pat them on the head, wandering aimlessly around the political landscape looking for a clue, political eunuchs who allow themselves to be intimidated and pushed around by anyone who says BOO! to them.

      Little wonder Obama got elected twice and Hillary has a chance to be POTUS.

      • They are betraying the country by handing the Executive to the Democrats. That’s how I see it.

        A Speaker refusing to back the Party candidate is unheard of in history. I was told that Lou Dobbs did a masterful takedown on FBN of Paul Ryan — calling him a small, little man in a job that was too big for him. He also called for a Twitter campaign to have Ryan removed as Speaker. I left a comment to Ryan directly on the Speakers blog. Not surprisingly all Ryan phone lines were full.

        I support all of this. And refuse to believe these are wasted efforts. And I hope Kelly Anne manages to get tapes, and whatever else she needs to expose salacious locker room treatment of women by Congress critters and the powerful.

        I am small and petty and vengeful and think the Republicans deserve every bit of trash that can be exposed. They are hypocrites of the highest order. And oh yeah, who does not know that Hillary is well known for being a garbage mouth.
