But they could be effective or not effective, so a bigger part than you or I would care to admit.
It might also be effective for a debater to use a baseball bat on their opponent but it wouldn't mean that they actually won the debate.
Then it wouldn't be effective. :suspicious:

Just like using bullying and intimidation wouldn't mean that Trump won the actual debate part of a debate.

Sounds like the next debate will include at least some (I haven't heard the exact details) turning off of mics during their opponents time.

To be fair, NOBODY won that debate on substance. The only measuring stick is perception.

What? How? I stated facts and a definition. Are you saying that you’re right and Merriem Webster is wrong?

You’re being silly
You’re the one who initially brought up trying to compare debating on a message board to in person debating. Talk about silly (and blowing up the goalposts).
I had to. You’re too stupid to realize that what we do here is debate. It’s not my fault you’re a fucking idiot and can’t accept that MAYBE you might be wrong something.


Talk about dense...fucking Christ you take the cake.

Wrong.

Who cares if a message board is comparable to a presidential debate or not. The differences between an in person debate and a debate with candidates in different locations are minimal. You're lost in the weeds deflecting from the reality that Trump is a pussy running from a situation where he can't try to bully and intimidate rather than actually debating.
Wrong.
And Trump isn’t the pussy who pulled out of doing an in person debate. That was Biden..
Wasn’t it the commission that cancelled that and then suggested an alternative?


I know...those pesky facts get in the way.

Correct. Presidential debates USED to be about getting your message out to a broad audience. Now...I’m not sure what they’re goals are.

No you didn’t. Of course what we do here is debate. Doesn’t change the fact that only a fucking moron such as yourself would attempt to compare what we do here on this message board with an in person live debate, or even a ‘virtual’ one. Not even in the same realm.

If you think the Biden campaign didn’t have something to do with getting the comission to cancel, then I have some oceanfront property in AZ along with a bridge to sell you.

Debate is the exchange of opposing ideas. Venues and all that aside - it's still a debate. You're the one that said(or suggested) it wouldn't be a debate b/c they wouldn't be in person. And now you're admitting that what we do here is a debate. So....looks like I've won. It's ok to be wrong, BDK. I'm wrong often and admit it. It's ok...you're human like the rest of us. Congrats. :clap: :clap: :clap:

BDK - even if Trump went to a debate - what he does isn’t debating. He doesn’t answer the question, he bullies, interrupts, spouts bullshit theories and lies. He doesn’t debate. He pouts and whines like a little bitch. There’s no high minded negate between two philosophies about which is better for America.


And after listening to his Comm Dir just now, she said he won’t answer questions he doesn’t like. What a punk bitch. I wouldn’t hitch my wagon to such an insecure person.
