Harris, Nelson will debate
http://www.heraldtribune.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060907/BLOG01/60907018/-1/RSS ^ | 7 September 2006

For most of the summer, Katherine Harris's Republican primary opponents complained bitterly that Harris would not agree to debate them.

But that won’t be a complaint from Sen. Bill Nelson, the Democrat Harris faces in November. Harris and Nelson will have two debates over the next 60 days.

The first will be on Oct. 23. That debate, arranged by Leadership Florida, the Florida Press Association and Florida Public Broadcasting will be at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale and will air from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the state’s 25 public television stations.

A second one-hour debate will be on Nov. 1. That debate will be hosted by NBC Meet the Press moderator Tim Russert and carried live by Florida’s NBC stations from the campus of the University of Central Florida beginning at 7 p.m.

Not familiar with the debate/speaking styles of these 2. Anyone in the know care to comment on what to expect Harris vs. Nelson debates?

In the best traditions, the debate would be best conducted with cudgels. Swords and pistols are to be reserved for higher level debates, gubernatorial and presidential.

Harris a charming and animated. Nelson speaks with a S-L-O-W drawl, and he is stiff as a board.

Good evening. I hope you and Richard are doing well.

Katherine won! And in the fwiw department, Schnitt said she was, "simply unelectable." Oh well, everyone makes mistakes.

Methinks the pundits, and talking heads might have a dish of crow in their collective future.

As you know, the First lady and I will continue to donate to Katherine's campaign, but can we do a FReep on her behalf? It would be fun.

Take care, hope to see you soon.

Which previous Harris debate did you attend?

I have seen her in action and she's a good debater.

As for keeping two ideas straight...she has a great memory and quotes facts & figures when she debates.

Katherine Harris is the GOP nominee for the Senate and we all need to support her candidacy....not help Nelson!

If you want to support Nelson start your own thread!

I take it this race is a popular topic on the atheist sites. I wonder, though, if you couldn't peddle your animosity toward religion on some thread where it's appropriate. Atheists for Jesus, or somewhere like that. This thread was about politics.

Nelson, whose parents were both teachers, won national speaking awards as a teenager. The man is a phony, but no dummy as a speaker. Harris is unlikely to beat him in debate.

Schnitt makes me nuts sometimes. He can have some good points now and then. There are other times when he'll cover a horrid subject like a murder or molestation and you get the sick feeling he's poking the body with a stick, looking for ants. At those times I think he's just talking so he can feel the breeze pass between his ears.

Seems like a good guy, but he crossed the boundaries of bearable topics once too many. I listen to O'Reilly and FOX news on XM now.

Maybe I'll tune in again, though. Maybe he's changed?

Harris News Update:
Primary Winner Harris Faces Uphill Duel

By MITCH STACY
The Associated Press
Wednesday, September 6, 2006

TAMPA, Fla. -- Rep. Katherine Harris overcame the opposition of her own party to win a decisive primary victory, and now it's unclear whether the GOP will lift a finger to support her long-shot bid to oust Sen. Bill Nelson in November.

Harris, dogged by campaign missteps and the specter of a bribery scandal, faces an uncontroversial opponent with a 30-point lead in the polls.

"Make no mistake about it," Harris told supporters Tuesday night. "It's not going to be easy."

University of North Florida political science professor Matt Corrigan thinks a Nov. 7 general election win would be almost impossible for Harris.

"Bill Nelson would have to make a huge, stupid mistake for this race to become competitive, and Bill Nelson doesn't make stupid political mistakes," Corrigan said. "This is more than a long shot."

Harris got 50 percent in Tuesday's four-candidate GOP primary. Will McBride, a 34-year-old political novice who ran statewide TV commercials for a week before the election, came in second with 30 percent.

"She shouldn't take much solace in those numbers," Corrigan said. "For McBride to get 30 percent, that sends a message that Republicans are not behind her candidacy."

Florida Republican Party spokesman Jeff Sadosky said Wednesday the party will back Harris but that it was too early for details.

Sadosky said he didn't know whether state party chairwoman Carole Jean Jordan or Gov. Jeb Bush would campaign for her at some point or if Harris would get any money from the state party.

"The governor and chairwoman Jordan said they would support the eventual nominees," Sadosky said. "She is the nominee."

Bush's office referred questions about Harris to Sadosky.

The Republican National Committee also will support Harris, spokeswoman Camille Anderson said.

"The national party looks forward to helping elect Republicans up and down the ballot in Florida," she said. "Republicans will execute an aggressive get-out-the-vote operation in the state that will benefit all our candidates."

Harris gained the adoration of the Republican rank-and-file _ and the scorn of Democrats _ in 2000 when, as Florida secretary of state, she oversaw the recount that put George W. Bush, the governor's brother, in the White House. In 2002, she won her congressional seat and then two years later set her sights on the Senate.

But Republican leaders pushed her aside in 2004 so Mel Martinez could win the seat of retiring Democratic Sen. Bob Graham.

This year, figuring that Nelson was beatable, the party tried to force her out of the race against Nelson, asking several other people to get into the race.

Harris has been tripped up by her dealings with corrupt defense contractor Mitchell Wade, who pleaded guilty to bribing a California congressman and admitted funneling $32,000 in illegal donations to Harris. She says she gave the money to charity.

More than two dozen of her staff members defected, with some of whom characterizing her as a micromanaging bully prone to temper tantrums and unpredictable behavior.

Harris also has raised eyebrows with some of her public statements. She recently said that separation of church and state is "a lie" and that God and the Founding Fathers did not intend the country to be "a nation of secular laws." She later backpedaled.

Nelson campaign manager Chad Clanton said he didn't know what to expect from Harris during the campaign, but he doubts she can overcome her credibility problems.

"It's the fire she can't put out," Clanton said.

You don't know that Nelson will win a debate against Harris. Whereas I do know you have been tossing spears at her since long before the primary.

Katherine Harris is the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate. Either you support Katherine Harris or you support liberal Bill Nelson.

..Harris ... faces an uncontroversial opponent with a 30-point lead in the polls ..

I'm not sure I believe that 30-point lead. If that were the case, why would Nelson agree to debate? The correct play for any politician that far ahead is to ignore their opponent and make happy talk speeches untill the election.

Jimmy Carter refused to debate Reagan until his internal polls showed Reagan with a serious chance to win.

Politics 101A says there is more to this race than appears on the surface.

The media/pollsters are trying to create such a negative picture for Harris that Republicans will give up. The media is best known for lies and deliberate left-lunatic propaganda.
Bill Nelson is ultraleftist. He doesn't represent Florida voters; he represents the kind of people who keep re-electing Hanoi Kerry and Chappaquiddick Kennedy. Between now and November Florida voters will become more aware of that fact, and the fact that Nelson has accomplished nothing in six years, except to vote in lockstep with the Clintons, Kerry, Kennedy, Boxer, Levin, Leahy, Biden, Schumer, Reid and the rest of the enemy within.

Realism is a virtue in politics and most everything else. Harris has serious flaws in her personality, a brewing ethics controversy that she has lied about, and is far behind in the polls with no plausible basis for recovery. These are not "spears at Harris" but recitations of publicly known facts.

The only "realism" depicted here is the Matrix-like "reality" concocted by the FL liberal media and Harris critics. Why don't you break free?

Harris has serious flaws in her personality, a brewing ethics controversy that she has lied about

50% of FL primary voters thought otherwise.

and is far behind in the polls with no plausible basis for recovery.

If she's far behind in the polls why is she being attacked non-stop by the liberals/RINOs and Nelson agreeing to debate her.

These are not "spears at Harris" but recitations of publicly known facts.

These are not facts, they're your own negative and biased opinions spoon-fed to you by the media.

No, but she can debate like a Young-Earth-Creationist throwing out so many stupid and inane ideas that they could never be corrected in just one little debate. Of course, that would show her to be maroon that she is and turn off all the literate voters ...

shhh - nevermind.

Let's see how Katherine Harris' credentials compare to yours, Bucky:
A former IBM marketing executive and vice president of a commercial real estate firm, Rep. Harris earned a Master’s Degree from Harvard University with a specialization in international trade and negotiations, and a Bachelor’s Degree in history from Agnes Scott College. She studied abroad at the University of Madrid and at L’Abri outside Geneva, Switzerland. Her commitment to public service has earned Rep. Harris numerous awards, including the Mel Fisher Award for International Trade Advocacy; the Florida Economic Development Council Legislator of the Year Award; the Florida United Business Association Outstanding Legislator Award; the Florida Arts Advocacy Award, the Sarasota Humanitarian of the Year Award and the Sarasota Statesman of the Year Award.

(1) As a matter of fact, Harris has been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury investigating a defense contracting corruption scandal, the same scandal that sent Republican Rep. "Duke" Cunningham to prison. Harris got reported campaign contributions from the defense contractor involved, was lavishly wined and dined by him, and, arguably, did questionable favors for him. Harris lied to her campaign staff and the public by denying that she had been subpoenaed, and she also failed to disclose the subpoena as US House rules require. These are unpleasant facts, but they are facts nonetheless, not media inventions.

(2) As a matter of mixed fact and opinion, Harris also has serious defects in her personal temperament that led to the loss of several capable campaign teams and ineffective handling of the controversies attending her. Barring indictment and conviction for corruption, these defects are not disqualifying as to Harris holding office, but they are a serious impediment to her political effectiveness. She has the GOP nomination, but will not come close to mounting an effective campaign or even raising the resources necessary for doing so.

(3) Personally, even knowing about these things, I will vote for Harris against Nelson. I fully expect her to lose though due to high negatives in statewide polling that date from the 2000 election and are aggravated by the defense contracting scandal. After Harris loses, I expect that she will blame the GOP for the loss. Harris will not be deterred by the fact that in doing so, she will devalue the cause her most ardent supporters are dedicated to. None of that "If we lose D-Day, it is only my fault alone" stuff like Ike intended, or some kind of Reaganesque Gipper speech. Harris will blame the GOP, not herself.

(4) As a matter of opinion, if one is a Harris enthusiast or even just a wavering GOP voter or conservative, I recommend voting and even working for Harris. The effort is worthwhile in spite of the above. A lot of campaigns that are destined to lose have to be fought, and fought hard, for the sake of the larger GOP cause.

(5) As a matter of opinion, if one loathes Harris and is not inclined to vote for her, here is another, perhaps grimmer way of looking at it. Nelson is liberal, and therefore dishonest and vile in the way that liberalism and liberals working in politics are always fundamentally dishonest and vile. Harris is nutty, but Nelson is worse. Vote for the screwball, not for the pinko, al Queda hugging baby-killer.

DOJ already stated that Harris wasn't the focus of their investigation.

As a matter of mixed fact and opinion, Harris also has serious defects in her personal temperament that led to the loss of several capable campaign teams and ineffective handling of the controversies attending her.

Rumors, not substantiated from disgruntled staffers. These staffers didn't like how independent Harris is, so they quit. Much ado about nothing.

(3) Personally, even knowing about these things, I will vote for Harris against Nelson.

So why waste your time criticizing her if you're going to vote for her anyway? If you don't like her you don't vote for her, right?

I fully expect her to lose though due to high negatives in statewide polling that date from the 2000 election and are aggravated by the defense contracting scandal.

It's not going to happen bub. The "pollsters" have been saying this since she ran for Congress back in 2002. That huge swath of lefty angry voters still pissed over the recall? Totally non-existent.

After Harris loses, I expect that she will blame the GOP for the loss.

I think if she loses she'll easily obtain a high-ranking job in a future GOP administration or in the private sector.

Finally! A comment that does not directly contribute to promoting Nelson's re-election.

5. here is another, perhaps grimmer way of looking at it. Nelson is liberal, and therefore dishonest and vile in the way that liberalism and liberals working in politics are always fundamentally dishonest and vile.

It's nice to see you really do understand the need to oust liberal Bill Nelson. However, continually tossing spears at Harris does nothing to accomplish the task at hand.

I know a good bit about Nelson's flaws -- which is why I wish we had a better candidate against him. Harris needs to make a case for her election that will appeal to a majority of the general electorate. The facts that you wish would not mentioned will continue to burden her effort unless she finds a way to address them and put them to rest convincingly.

The fact that the same stories are regurgitated over and over and over ad nauseum is a MSM issue unto itself. Add to that the most unflattering photos of Katherine Harris are always depicted with the stories. Together, a whole lot of plain folks like me (not as politically savvy as you) are noticing the smear campaign. It's a girl thing.
