- Reaction score
I specifically remember W scoring points during a debate because Gore stood up awkwardly while W was saying something - and W just turned, nodded and said something like “yo”.Biden looked good on Colbert.
Told an old man story, but he was on point.
Trump has to be careful not to oversell the dementia narrative.
The Democrats in 2000 and 2004 really overdid the "W. is really stupid" thing.
So when debate time came around, with expectations so low, W. had nowhere to go but up even with middling performances.
All the sudden “stupidity” became “relatable folksiness”.
