Well done - no need to move the timing of debated just because of postal voting.

Of course they reject more debates. Gotta protect Biden. He made another racist gaffe yesterday.

Well, let’s just make sure Biden even makes the first debate. 90 minutes for Biden with Trump and the moderators is going to be a lot and Jill won’t be able to aid her husband.

After Trump's bumbling and humiliation at the hands of an Axios reporter I'm surprised his team wants him even speaking again.

I would say that most people have already made up their mind. Those who havent will likely vote Trump.

Because if they havent already decided not to vote against Trump, I dont see them picking Biden. More than half of the Biden votes seem to be not for Biden, but against Trump.

Biden is fading fast, especially among Black voters. His wife cant debate for him, so they need to get it scheduled online or something so he can be fed questions/answers in advance.

Bumbling? Just wait until Biden gets in front of Chris Wallace. Lol

Lessee, who should I vote for...

Joe Biden... defund, er, re-direct police funding, higher taxes to pay for health care of illegals, back in bed with China and a New World Order, appointments of liberal judges...

Donald Trump it is!

The debates serve the purpose of getting out all the Biden policies/statements for public transparency.

I doubt that more than 20% of the people know what Biden is proposing or have actually heard the racist statements and nonsensical gaffes of the last few months. He has made 2 more racist comments in the last 48 hours that few have likely heard as the liberal media doesnt emphasize it.

Trump, every statement and policy is scrutinized and criticized publicly. Thanks to the liberal media its doubtful that there is anyone who has not already heard and evaluated everything he has ever proposed or said.

We need transparency on the Biden side. If he is ok with fracking, why did his public statement say he was against it and would stop it? Not defunding the police? Then what did you mean when he said "absolutely!" when asked about it? Did he think someone was offering him a sandwich?

I want to hear this from Biden in a live setting with follow up questions. not online with handlers or from his wife.

Interesting the democrats have reluctantly agree to allow Biden to debate. In past elections they were always pushing for it, especially against an incumbent Republican President.

Just wait until Biden gets in front of Chris Wallace. Lol

I hope Wallace grills Biden as heatedly as he did Trump, but I somehow doubt it.

I would say that most people have already made up their mind. 

It still remains to be seen who Biden's VP selection is and whether she is palatable to the American people, especially to the democrats and the Undecided. Remember, there is a good chance she may succeed Biden during his first term.

This was a question in the most recent "we hate Trump" poll I saw, a list of the Dem VP candidates and do you approve or not?

The VP with the highest approval rating was only at 37%. and believe it or not, that was Elizabeth Warren. Other high ones were Kamala Harris and Stacey Abrams. Except that, the rest of them were pretty poorly rated.

Maybe Biden can just do the VP debate with Pence, there is only one of those.

Well, you know things are bad in Trump-world when they use a person currently under federal DOJ investigation for fraud and misconduct to ask for another debate - the one and only Crazy Rudy...

But really, after that disaster of a interview with Swan where Trump looked like a doddering old fool, and the "senior moment" yesterday where he couldn't even pronounce "Yosemite", his campaign staff know they need to keep Donald locked up in the bunker with his Stormy Daniels DVDs...

Why is Trump wearing high-heeled shoes.

Not high heeled, it’s the photo angle perspective.

All you have to do is listen to or watch a video of Biden from even 10 years ago to see a difference. He is clearly fading away. When is the last time he actually did an interview with anyone other than a friendly reporter? It is painful to watch. All he can say is, "come on, man" and "look...." It is sad because he used to be somewhat loquacious, in a friendly uncle kind of way. Now he just sounds confused.

Geez, Trump can't keep his dementia in check for just one day...

Yesterday he freezes up and can't pronounce "Yosemite"....says "Yo Semite" as if he's someone from down in the 'hood...

Then today he pronounces Thailand "Thighland"....showing once again he can't keep his mind out of the gutter, even with his severe Alzheimers...

Many say his speech pattern and inability to articulate indicates diminishing mental faculties, dementia, etc.

I ran across an interesting article about Biden. The article states that Biden is a stutterer.

https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2020/01/joe-biden-stutter-profile/602401/

He has had that problem since childhood. Stuttering becomes apparent when under pressure and the mouth has trouble articulating thoughts into words, which explains his frequent hesitations and groping for the right words and articulating them.

Now I understand his handlers' reluctance to allow him to be interviewed with Chris Wallace or debate with Trump.

Right. How could he possibly debate a stable genius who says things like this on a daily basis?

"[Biden will] take away your guns, destroy your Second Amendment. No religion, no anything, hurt the Bible, hurt God. He's against God, he's against guns, he's against energy, our kind of energy."

But Biden gets the cake for 30 years of growing flubs, gaffes and frozen memory loss...
