Recently, Joe Biden and John Fetterman met in private for a meeting. I would have paid a lot of money to be in the room with them. Not because I would want to make fun of their limited brain functions, but because I am curious as to whether they could understand each other when no one can make heads or tails of anything either one of them says.
Fetterman was actually extremely pathetic and I actually felt bad for him. You could tell from the very beginning that he would not fare well when he said, “Hi Goodnight everybody.” Actually, that pretty well sums up his debate performance in that it was over from the moment it started. Even Chris Cuomo was down on Fetterman’s performance. If you’re a Democrat and Cuomo thinks you did poorly, it is a sure sign that you are in deep trouble.
Dr. Oz started out the debate by making the case why he should be elected:
“I’m running for the U.S. Senate because Washington keeps getting it wrong with extreme positions.”
“I want to bring civility, balance, all the things you want to see because you’ve been telling it to me on the campaign trail. By doing that, we can bring ourselves together in a way that has not been done of late.… John Fetterman takes everything to an extreme and those extreme positions hurt us all. Let’s take crime, for example, because it’s been such a big problem.… John Fetterman, during this crime wave, has been trying to get as many murderers — convicted and sentenced to life in prison — out of jail as possible.”
“John Fetterman’s response, continually, is to raise taxes. He raised taxes as mayor, he tried to raise taxes as lieutenant governor 46%, that’s a big tax rate, he supported Joe Biden’s recent tax rate increase, and he’s done that without paying his own taxes 67 times. I’ll say that again, he hasn’t paid his own taxes 67 times, but he’s raising mine and yours.”
Oz says that he plans on working to fix the economy by cutting the budget so that struggling Americans do not see tax hikes on top of what has already become misery for working American men and women.
Fetterman responded to the fact that he did not pay his taxes on time 67 times by saying:
“Absolutely, the Oz rule, of course, he’s lying. It was helping two students, 17 years ago, to help them, you know, to buy their own homes. They didn’t pay the bills and it got her paid [sic] and it’s never been an issue in any other campaign before. It was all about nonprofit.”
What exactly did he say? Your guess is as good as mine. Fetterman gives his answer to inflation:
“No, here’s what I think. We have to fight about inflation here, right now. That’s what we need to fight about, inflation, you know, right now, because it’s a tax on working families. Doctor Oz can’t possibly understand what that is like. He has 10 gigantic mansions, you know? We must push back against corporate greed. We must also make sure that we are pushing back against price-gouging, as well, too, you know? We also need to be able to make more in Pennsylvania and make more in America.”
Fetterman talks fracking:
“I do support fracking, and I don’t, I don’t — I support fracking, and I stand, and I do support fracking.”
Fetterman has stated many times that he supports a ban on fracking. But, I think he was trying to flip-flop on fracking but I can’t be sure.
John Fetterman’s ability to communicate is seriously impaired. Pennsylvania voters will be talking about this obvious fact even if many in the media will not.

Oz campaign manager Casey Contres said:
“Radical John Fetterman couldn’t defend why he has repeatedly pushed for extreme policies like decriminalizing heroin, banning fracking, and pardoning cold-blooded murderers. Dr. Oz articulated how he would restore balance to Washington and find common-sense solutions to lower costs for families and make our streets safer.”
Stick a crowbar in Fetterman, he’s just beginning.
