George Will: Hofstra presidential
debate ‘immeasurably the best’ in
American history

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

During ABC’s wrap-up of Tuesday night’s presidential debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., Washington Post columnist George Will proclaimed that the debate was “immeasurably the best” in American history. “[I] think there was a winner in the sense that Barack Obama not only gained ground that he lost, but he cauterized some wounds that he inflicted on himself by seeming too diffident and disengaged,” Will said. “Both men tonight, I think, tip-toed right up to the point of rudeness, but stepped back. It was a very good fight. I have seen every presidential debate in American

Video included. WARNING: Do not drink coffee while reading this BS! He states that he was impressed when the Empty Chair hit Romney with the 47%. Really, you were impressed by a coward who waited to use a totally out of context statement when he knew Romney couldn't respond. What an idiot.

Ever since George Will called George H.W. Bush a "lapdog", I have had no respect for him.

If George Will has "seen every presidential debate in American history," he must be at least 160 years old. Even Obama doesn't "misspeak" in such a crazy manner.

George Will really needs to get out more, this was not the best in American history. Obama told more lies and Romney was hamstrung by the moderator.

Maybe for the great intellectuals, this was a great debate, but it was a mess in my opinion. Romney got in great points but the "moderator" and the format along with the questions were less than desirable. It might have worked if the questions were not pre-screened and the audience were able to ask questions randomly. The debate was about the moderator and her agenda and her career, plain and simple.

The president held his fire on the 47 percent until he had the last word in the debate,” Will said. “That is, he used it in his summation in a way that Mitt Romney could not explain or respond to. So, I think as a tactical measure tonight, the president did very well, indeed.”

George, you're well past your 'best by' date, it's time to retire.

(1) There was no "summation" in this debate format - Obama broke the rules on that matter.
(2) The question asked was
"To each of you. What do you believe is the biggest misperception that the American people have about you as a man and a candidate?"

If anything, Obama completely ignored the question and rambled on and on about things EXTERNAL to himself - in spite of the question - and then threw in the '47%' line because he knew Romney had no chance to respond to it.

George, that may be a "tactical" success in your mind, but it's also an act of cowardice.

George Will is an effete snob who has a bad case of Beltway-itis. This debate was interesting but hardly one of the best ever. I think Reagan's debate with Carter where he said, there you go again, was probably the best. I don't remember if it was the same one where Carter said he asked his daughter Amy for advice. That (or those) debate was a real game-changer. This one wasn't.

Ole George has stayed waay too long in the DC echo chamber. The sad idea is that these folks really believe these beltway mantras and merely recite them to one another and regale in sitting around and telling each other how smart they are.

As I have previously stated in this forum, George Will, Peggy Noonan and others of the 'old guard' are no longer relevant to the new conservative movement under the Tea Party. Folk of their ilk do not understand us. They are limousine republicans of the Rockefeller mold, too used to being invited to the right parties and as panelists on the right shows.

Who reads or watches them, other then lap dog liberals who nod their heads when Will etc. come on. It just confirms the watchers of the MSM of their own convictions.

In a word, over the hill crapola from an undercover shill for the left.

Weird comments here. Will is entitled to his opinion, and according to the insta-polls after the debate his view is shared by quite a few.

The 47% remark coming at the end was a little odd, but Romney had already anticipated it and gave his response before -0- launched. 0-bama did play the pansy and usually delivered his kidney punches from behind after the segment time was up – leaving no chance for a response. That allowed him to get in his licks, but also made him look petty, striking only from the cover of the moderator's, uh...skirts.

Indeed Will is entitled to his opinion but to be taken seriously one needs to be grounded in reality. "Immeasurably the best" debate in American history? Really?? Wow. Obviously, Will has never read any of the debates involving Henry Clay, John Calhoun, Daniel Webster, Stephen Douglas, Abe Lincoln or W.Jennings Bryan. Prime facie, Will's assertion is beyond absurd.

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine, Ukraine - Masked gunmen stormed the parliament of Ukraine´s strategic Crimea region as Russian fighter jets screamed above the border, while Ukraine´s newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with the strong backing of the West - the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship. Moscow reportedly granted shelter to Ukraine´s fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference Friday near the Ukrainian border.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

NEW ORLEANS — AJ McCarron got up slowly and walked alone to the sideline with the full weight of another dispiriting loss weighing him down. His fumble on a sack turned into an Oklahoma touchdown with 47 seconds left, sealing the Sooners’ 45-31 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night. In a painful twist, McCarron ended his illustrious college career by losing twice in a row after going 36-2 in his first 38 games at Alabama. Oklahoma, a 17-point underdog, scored two touchdowns off his interceptions in the first half before capping the upset by returning his

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less
