“The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count the votes do.” — Ioseb Besarionis dze Jughashvili
Will she endure the event? Pray tell, is the Entitled One physically equipped and in fighting trim to permit, allow and enable her to withstand the first debate much less than the significant rigors of the office of POTUS? Her health is certainly in question. Herein is my handicapping the handicapped debate that America will observe firsthand on 26 September 2016 CE, a date that will live in psephological infamy.
Trump’s strategy. The checklist.
- It’s all about optics, image and perception. Not facts or issues or history.
- The debate is about undecideds and the middle-of-the-road uncommitted. Tack center-left.
- No below-the-belt sniping and juvenescent barbs. You’re an adult. Act like one.
- There’s no political left today. Hillary supporters are actually anti-Trump factions. No issues or platforms they address; they’re centering on the anti-Trump, viz. Queen Hill.
- The handshake and address are critical. Look at her as though your putz what you’re about to do to her. Nod, smile but don’t grin. Think the boxing standoff.
- If HRC’s crazy enough to reference Trump University bury her and Bill with Laureate, a corruption scheme that dwarfs any Trump reference in comparison.
- If she’s likewise crazy enough to reference Atlantic City bankruptcies, return reference the number of powerhouses that also went belly up including the city itself . . . and then introduce the folks again to Whitewater, the mother of bankruptcies that included a convicted governor and dozens of indictments. Memory lane’s a bitch.
- Get under the radar the fact that you’re physically able to endure the office as opposed to an enfeebled and gravely ill Hillary. Don’t address it directly but make not-so-veiled references to stamina, strength, energy, fortitude and the like which contrast Hillary’s coughing spells and anti-seizure eyewear.
- You have to emphasize that this is an election of trust and Hillary has provided many examples of how she’s not to be trusted through Comey’s bill of particulars as to her server irregularities, pay to play, lying anent Benghazi and other matters international along with her own sordid history via the Clinton Global Initiative — an organization that makes the Gambino crime family look like the Junior League in comparison.
Hillary’s health decline. A dark look back at how the Ted Baxter sockpuppet media have distracted the public away from the obvious and troubling realities of a gravely ill Madame Clinton.
