NY Post: Trump was reduced to a sputtering mess

This is from a Trump supporter. Read the whole thing at the link!

By the time the last 15 minutes rolled around, he was reduced to yammering about Rosie O’Donnell being mean to him and Hillary running mean commercials about him and praising himself because there are some really terrible things he could have said about Hillary but hasn’t. By this point, even his smart closing zinger — “she has experience but it’s bad experience” — was buried inside a weird word salad that reduced its effectiveness to almost nil.

His supporters should be furious with him, and so should the public in general. By performing this incompetently, by refusing to prepare properly for this exchange, by not learning enough to put meat on the bones of his populist case against Clinton, he displayed nothing but contempt for the people who have brought him this far — and for the American people who are going to make this momentous decision on Nov. 8.

7. A lot of people here were pissed about Obama's performance in the first debate against Romney.

The difference between that and this is that Obama didn't lack substance; he just hadn't debated in four years and it was more a matter of "style". And Obama is also willing to adapt. That's why in the next debate he came roaring back because he realized he needed to prepare.

Drumpf's problem is that he has no substance, and he cannot admit that he was wrong. A sensible candidate would realize they fucked up and get to work. Drumpf won't do that because in his mind he did a perfect job and so there's no reason to change anything. Well, better for us.

4. What was his threat that he so gracelessly held back?

What a tool he is.

A flailing, fuming fanatic.

6. When he said that, first thing I thought was "Oh god. Please, please, PLEASE do it Donald."

That would have been a new low: attacking a woman for her husband cheating on her.

9. I'm sure she has that retort at the ready

Just ready for him to take the bait. And Bill and Hillary are still married, to each other, and only once. That's why he wouldn't bring up those "terrible things" not because Chelsea was in the audience but because Melania and Ivanka are in the audience.
The Podhoretz piece was right on the money. And from someone on his side. And who will vote for HRC.
