My take on last night for what it's worth

I think Biden was overprepared with facts and figures and underprepared on how to be telegenic. The facts and figures went over like a dead balloon because of his (admittedly) poor delivery. And simple advice like looking into the camera, speaking loudly and slowly, and smiling during cheato's answers instead of staring blankly, would have gone a long way.

Some of this is Biden's fault, but I do feel that his team should have prepared him with short snappy answers and voice projection instead of paragraphs of facts that are not engaging to most people watching debates. This morning I heard talking heads on MSNBC ask if Biden was even told by his team that there would be a split screen and that his reaction to cheato would be televised. Jan Psaki said she doesn't know if he was prepared for the set up. No excuse for this.

Anyway, he came out "jacked up" this morning, and so I still have hope. It's counterproductive to look back too much. I think he sounded good today. Let's give him and his team (and his surrogates) a chance to fix this.

GAVIN NEWSOM!!!!

My Governor bringing the fire! He's old school and cares about the truth and so do I! Not liking Alex's tone.

This is the real Joe!

Sorry, but he should have brought that during the debate. Better late than never?
I loved the fire. I hope this gets some airplay.

Thank you David Plouffe

on MSNBC. Giving a realistic assessment of the debate but avoiding the "World is on Fire" routine. Reasonable, serious critique.

Have Tapper or Bash corrected one lie?

I know they said they wouldn't fact check, but this is ridiculous. The lies about Jan.6 alone are breathtaking.

Loud, bragging lies are still lies

If people are stupid enough to vote for this @###, Lord help us.
