Yes, indeed. The natives are restless.
I’ve mentioned a time or two, I have very little interest in watching
the made-for-TV debates (all 73 of them to date) for a couple of very
good reasons. Doug Ross @Director Blue, popped his cork this morning and unloaded on the entire “set up”. One of my serious evaluations is included in his post.
“So the chief political operative for a disgraced, impeached ex-president is the right guy to moderate a Republican debate?
with America's debt surpassing 100% of GDP -- which makes us,
officially, a debtor nation; with Iran threatening to close the Strait
of Hormuz; with China gearing up for war; with Islamists rising
throughout the Middle East; with rating agencies threatening to further
downgrade the United States; George Stephanapolous wants to discuss banning contraception? Really?”

Dell’s Bottom Line:
George Stephanapolous - Card Carrying Democrat. Close advisor to Bill Clinton and Barack Obama moderates Republican debates?
The man who was as close to President Bill Clinton as one could get.
The man who gets immediate call backs from President Barack Obama. One
of the chosen few invited to the White House for partisan political
instructions on his re-election campaign. The man who gets a personal
audience with King Obama ANY time his heart desires, is constantly
selected to be a moderator of Republican debates?
partisanship displayed there. None what so ever. And Doug’s point
above is my primary reason for having little to no interest in what
takes place at these events.
timely questions aren’t asked because most of them would revolve around
Barack Obama’s failures on the economy, foreign policy,
unemployment/jobs, the federal deficit, the military, budget and
managements issues, unconstitutional recess appointments made when no
recess exists, etc., etc. The man who’s all warm and cuddly with Barack
Obama isn’t going to ask a question that causes it to rain down
criticism on his parties candidate, it’s as simple as that.
are the important issues. And that’s what I want to hear the
candidates talk about. Sadly, no such questions are asked, answered or
even brought up.
what’s up with Diane Sawyer? She looks, acts and speaks as though
she’s on a bad trip or is a .014% BAC. One more cocktail and she’d be a
totally slobbering drunk. And I’m not the first, or only, writer to
make that observation. Sawyer’s comportment during each of her
appearances has drawn considerable negative commentary from a number of
other media outlets.
Could this issue be corrected? How?
candidates, backed by the Republican National Committee, could put a
stop to it instantly by simply declaring “we won’t appear at any debates
that are moderated by biased, partisan hacks such as George
Stephanapolous and seemingly intoxicated blubbering idiots like Diane
Sawyer”. There are a number of independent journalists and writers out
there who would focus keenly on the issues that are most important TODAY
- right now - not the candidates views on twenty years ago, but right
of course, will not happen. It’s made for tv ratings and the
candidates want every minute of free television air time as they can
get, so they reluctantly go along. They shouldn’t.
Now back to your regularly scheduled playoff/bowl game.
