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

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Bubbasuncle, 10/17/2012 10:17:24 AM

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

Comments:
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.

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.

FTA:
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.”

What?!?
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.

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.

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

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet."

With studies showing widening economic gaps between whites and African Americans, civil rights leaders in metro Detroit are concerned. “We’re going in the wrong direction,” said Freda Sampson, a leader with the nonprofit group Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion. “We’re getting further and further divided.” To help close that racial and class divide, her group is holding an all-day conference, called the Equity Action Summit, on Saturday at Cobo Center in Detroit.
