Political pundits and typical Americans alike are nonetheless speaking about the debate amongst Pennsylvania Senate candidates Dr. Mehmet Oz and Lt. Gov. John Fetterman.
It didn’t take any time at all for it to be extremely apparent that Fetterman, who suffered a stroke in May, is nonetheless obtaining some extremely critical struggles.
But as reports roll in about Democrats panicking – or freaking out – about Tuesday night’s efficiency, it is becoming clear what they’re genuinely upset about.
It’s not the debate efficiency itself. Rather, it is the error of permitting the complete scope of Fetterman’s situation to be laid bare ahead of the nation.
A standard reaction: 1 Pennsylvania Democrat strategist mentioned, “Fetterman’s team never should have agreed to this debate. He still clearly has serious health issues.”
John Fetterman’s capability to communicate is seriously impaired. Pennsylvania voters will be speaking about this clear reality even if several in the media will not.

Medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner described Fetterman’s stroke as “a significant neurological injury.” One that requires time and difficult perform to overcome.
While arguing that he admired Fetterman’s willingness to go out and take the punches he knew would be coming, Dr. Reiner also hit his campaign for attempting to hide the seriousness of what occurred:
“Part of the problem is that, you know, the campaign was opaque at the very beginning. They didn’t really disclose the degree of his illness. We don’t really know how sick he was. In fact, his treating physicians were never made available to the press or the public, so we don’t really know how much Mr. Fetterman has actually recovered.”
Most conservatives you speak to surely have at least some degree of sympathy for Fetterman himself, but agree with Reiner on putting blame with these about Fetterman.
Clearly, his challenge is deeper than was let on all along. And that brings me back to my initial point. That’s what Democrats are upset about.
Not that Fetterman is in fact incapacitated and unable to do the job of a United States Senator, but that the public is now conscious of it.
Wow, I’ve observed so several of these “John Fetterman is soooooooo brave and courageous” tweets it Will have to be the new dem speaking point.
Yes he’s so brave, so courageous ……. he’s also demonstrably impaired and incorrect for the Senate and incorrect for America.

What’s Really Going On
John Fetterman appeared ahead of the crowd at a Dave Matthews concert Wednesday evening.
He told the crowd, “To be honest here, doing that debate wasn’t exactly easy. You know. Knew it wasn’t going to be easy after having a stroke after five months, in fact. And in fact, I don’t think that’s ever been done before in American political history before, actually. You know, after that stroke, I got knocked down, but I got back up!”
There could possibly be a purpose for that, Mr. Fetterman.
Hiding his situation seemed to be paying off for the Fetterman campaign.
According to Real Clear Politics, Fetterman was major Dr. Oz in the polls all through most of the summer season. But as in other states, as the election gets closer, the Pennsylvania Senate race has tightened. The most current RCP typical has Fetterman only up by 1.three points and the race is ranked a toss-up.
Democrats seem to only care about remaining in energy, even at the expense of someone’s wellness. But 1 has to wonder, why the people today who appreciate and care about John Fetterman the most, have permitted him and his recovery to be utilized in such a callous way.
What has also been exposed, is just how desperate Democrats are.
So sad to see John Fetterman struggling final evening in the debate w/ @DrOz. Maybe he does not even recognize how impaired he is. I blame his wife & his handlers.Shame on them for subjecting him to this cruelty & for attempting to fool the Pa. voters. #JohnFedderman #PennsylvaniaDebate
