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.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
