The first debate is in the books and it was a contentious one as President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden took to the stage last evening at Case Western University in Cleveland, Ohio.
Here’s a partial list of items Jim brought to the attention of listeners that were either from the debate or related to it:
–Questions loom about moderator Chris Wallace. Did he lose control? Was he biased against the President, particularly with his line of questioning concerning a comprehensive plan to replace Obamacare?
–Audio from the president regarding the nomination to fill the Supreme Court vacancy.
–Audio from Joe Biden on eliminating the filibuster and packing the Supreme Court, including audio on the latter issue from VP candidate Kamala Harris.
–Biden claimed not to support the Green New Deal in spite of the fact that the Biden/Harris website appears to communicate just the opposite.
–Biden indicated that:
…he’ll put the U.S. back into the Paris Climate Accord.
…the nation will not build any more coal or oil fired power plants.
…ANTIFA is an idea, not an organization.
–Biden wishes that schools would teach more about the Islamic faith.
There’s more to hear, including the views of Crosstalk callers from around the nation.
