Wow. I get that he had a stroke. He should have stepped aside. His lust for power despite the fact that he is clearly ill-equipped to successfully execute the duties of the office and represent the people of Pennsylvania is reprehensible.
At one point Fetterman was asked to clarify his position on fracking, as moderators pointed to a 2018 interview, where the lieutenant governor expressed broad opposition to the practice, but not a ban.
‘I do support fracking – I don’t, I don’t – I support fracking, and I do support fracking,’ he answered.
At another point, when Fetterman was asked to specifically about charges Oz made about some the Democrat’s campaign ads being pulled down for being factually inaccurate, Fetterman, instead, stuck to the topic of abortion.
‘I’m going to let Mr. Fetterman respond specifically to the ads being pulled off the air, and we’re going to return to you, Mr. Oz,’ said one of the moderators.
Fetterman didn’t acknowledge the question.
‘Yeah, I want to look into the face of every woman in Pennsylvania. If you believe that the choice of your reproductive freedom belongs with Dr. Oz, than you have a choice, but if you believe that the choice for abortion belongs between you and your doctor, that’s what I fight for,’ Fetterman said. ‘Roe v. Wade for me, should be the law, he celebrated when it went down. And my campaign would fight for Roe v. Wade – and if given the opportunity to codify it into law.’
Fetterman’s performance was quickly panned by pundits.
‘I thought somebody should have invoked the mercy rule 20 minutes into the debate,’ said former Republican Pennsylvania Rep. Charlie Dent on CNN. ‘I don’t know if it’s the stroke, or he’s just a lousy debater or he doesn’t understand the issues. He was flustered, he was confused, he should not have been out there.’
