When asked on Meet the Press what he expected to see on Sunday night’s presidential debate, former campaign manger for John McCain and currently a Republican strategist, said this:
“Someone who has no idea what he’s talking about from a policy perspective, who lacks the requisite dignity required of someone who wishes to be the head of state of the government of the United States, someone who lacks the capacity to be the commander-in-chief of the most powerful military and the world’s most potent nuclear arsenal – that’s what you’ll see tonight.
“The presidential race is effectively over. Hillary Rodham Clinton will be the 45th President of the United States. Chuck Schumer will be the majority leader. And the only question that’s still up in the air is how close the Democrats will come to re-taking the House majority.
“What this exposes though, is much deeper, it goes to the Republican party as an institution. This candidacy, the magnitude of its disgrace to the country is almost impossible, I think, to articulate. But it has exposed the intellectual rot in the Republican party. It has exposed at a massive level the hypocrisy, the modern day money changers in the temple like Jerry Falwell, Jr. And so this party, to go forward and to represent a conservative vision fo America, has great soul searching to do. And what we’ve seen, and the danger of all of these candidates, is over the course of the last year, these candidates who have repeatedly put their party over their country, denying what is so obviously clear to anybody who’s watching, about his complete and total manifest unfitness for this office.”
