Debate Over the Presidential Debates

September 17, 1988

Debates don't prove who would be the better President, just who's the better debater, the better TV personality. Isn't it strange that the party which cynically stripped content from any Ronald Reagan speech and scornfully reduced them to a consideration merely of his performance, is now demanding a media event for the sake of issues clarification?

The campaign is daily about issues. Witness the recent shift of "Star Wars" by Bentsen and Hedges.
