Debate: "Strong" Trump vs. "Well Prepared," but "Weak" Biden

The best analysis of the debate was from the American Catholic which described Joe Biden "as well prepared," but "weak and defensive." President Donald Trump was "strong" which reflected in his approval by Latinos who like "strong leaders":

  1.  Biden was well prepared with canned responses, but visibly tired as the debate wore on.
  2.  Chris Wallace was a hapless moderator who seemed to think his main role was to protect Biden from Trump.
  3. Trump’s goal was to constantly be on the attack.  Mission accomplished.
  4. Biden came across weak and defensive.
  5. Trump came across as Trump.  Few converts made but stirred up the base.
  6. Trump scored on the economy and got Biden to admit that he is opposed to the Green New Deal.  That will hurt Biden among already suspicious Leftist voters.  Law enforcement was another winner for Trump.  Trump drew blood on Hunter Biden, and Biden simply has no defense.
  7. Biden drew blood on Trump’s taxes.
  8. Debate reaction is mixed, but quite a few on the Left seem dismayed by Biden’s performance.  People see Trump every day.  These debates will be the only time the voters see Biden live, and last night they saw a defensive old man being verbally beaten up by Trump.
  9. The snap poll by Telemundo, see above, is bad news for team Biden.  Hispanics like, as a generalization, strong leaders and Biden projected weakness, not strength.
  10. The Kennedy-Nixon debates, as a contrast to the spectacle last night, six decades ago, shows the degradation that our public culture has undergone in a fairly short period of time. [https://the-american-catholic.com/2020/09/30/thoughts-on-the-first-debate/]

The debate showed a "weak" Biden who was left silent and wordless when President Trump asked him to name one police law enforcement organization that supported his ticket's apparent backhanded support of violent Black Live Matters rioting and demands for defunding the police.

Newsweek reported that "66 percent of [its Spanish-speaking] participants told Telemundo" that they "believed Trump won the debate" according to a poll:

"While the question of who won Tuesday's presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden lies in the court of public opinion, Spanish-speaking viewers of Telemundo gave their support to Trump."

"Both candidates have campaigned heavily in the Latino community. Trump's campaign has attempted to reel in Latino supporters with his Latinos for Trump initiative. Biden made an appearance at a September Hispanic Heritage Month celebration in Florida. Work by the Trump campaign to attract Latino voters may be paying off."

"In a poll after the debate, 66 percent of participants told Telemundo they believed Trump won the debate. Only 34 percent of poll participants thought Biden made a better showing in Tuesday's debate."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

Wernz-Vidal: "One cannot consider as Schismatics those who Refuse to Obey the Roman Pontiff because they would hold his person Suspect or, because of Widespread Rumors, Doubtfully Elected"

    Pope Francis is tottering on the precipice of Hell. None of this means he isn't the pope, and such talk among the laity is scandalous in its own right. Not a single cardinal in that 2013 conclave has come out and said the election was rigged and Bergoglio isn't the pope, that he is in fact an anti-pope . If he is, a future pope can declare that, when Jorge Bergoglio will no longer be a pope. But if the very men gathered in conclave haven't made that public accusation,  anyone who is suggesting that better take into account that they too will have to give an account of themselves to Almighty God when they die . Such talk adds to the scandal of the "little ones," the simple, even potential converts, who, when they hear big-mouth Catholics on social media saying he's not really the pope, draw back from approaching the Church. Do any of us desire to stand in front Our Blessed Lord as the Supreme Judge and explain why, in our desire for more c

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
