Drudge ^ | Nov.13, 2007 | Drudge

Posted on 11/13/2007 7:53:20 AM PST by tlb

CNN's Wolf Blitzer has been warned not to focus Thursday's Dem debate on Hillary. 'This campaign is about issues, not on who we can bring down and destroy,' top Clinton insider explains. 'Blitzer should not go down to the levels of character attack and pull 'a Russert.'' Blitzer is set to moderate debate from Vegas, with questions also being posed by Suzanne Malveaux... Developing.

I suppose this means if Edwards hits at Hillary, Wolf is expected to cut off his mike.

Link to story to come.

But.... but... she is hard as nails... she should be able to answer a few questions without getting upset. Shouldn’t she?

Could you see the uproar if the media was told to not gang up on the male front runner of a campaign?

Hillary - if you want to play with the boys, grow a set.

Wondering about the meaning of “warning”. Does Wolf have a cat?

The manner in which both sides are conducting these alleged “debates” is disgusting.

Wolf should ask every candidate all the questions and when it finally comes to hillary he should say he would have asked questions sooner however, her staff did not submit acceptable questions.

Too funny first it was “...pull a swift boating...” now it is “..pull a Russert...”

We need more Russert type questioning of all the Dhimmis, if Blitzer has an ounce of Journalistic integrity he will ask tough questions on illegals and abortion and firearms rights and..

Who am I kidding, it will be a Potemkin Village affair no doubt.

Will Hillary's supporters threaten to assasinate Blitzer for asking tough questions like they did with Russert after the last debate?

To the American Press: remember that insufficient zeal in support of Hillary will get you killed just as quickly as outright opposition under the Hillary regime.

Love the way the Leftists simply make up a lie and start screaming it to avoid having to actually debate the issue.

No one “hit at Hillary” they simply asked her a tough question.

If she caves this easily to a simple question for a "journalist", how in the heck can the American people expect here to handle the awesome pressures put on a President every day? How can we expect her to have what it takes to deal with the Iranians, the North Koreans, the Saudis, the Venezuelans, the Russians, the Chinese?

Face it Leftists, Hillary is neither emotionally, nor mentally tough enough to be President.

'This campaign is about issues, not on who we can bring down and destroy,' top Clinton insider explains.

So asking her about where she stands on driver's licenses for illegals, in the state that she represents in Congress mind you, is not an issue? I think the Clinton Mafia is very worried.....

“But.... but... she is hard as nails... she should be able to answer a few questions without getting upset. Shouldn’t she?”

She played the same trick when Lazio got in her close proximity during their senate debate.

The media lets her get by playing as the “tough girl” when it pleases them, and allows her to use the “you’re a bully” card against anyone who opposes her.

But, 'she's sooooo....smart'.

It takes a whole village of dumb-a$$es to believe anything that comes out of her pie and not to think she is nothing but an true blue elitist socialist....a real witch in sheep's clothing.

This woman cannot handle the likes of cute, freshly scrubbed Barrack Obama and John Edwards. How can she handle Kim Jong Il, Ahmedinajad, or Mugabe, insane murdering scumbags? Will her handlers instruct them to be “gentle”?

WOW!! Russert was picking on Hillary!!!! Blitzer warned not to do the same thing.

I guess Arkancide can happen in places other than Arkansas.

God Help America if this family of thugs gets a second toehold in the White House. The next thing we know, Chelsea will be running for President. She probably is as qualified as Hillary for that office.

'Blitzer should not go down to the levels of character attack and pull 'a Russert.'

This is priceless!

I'd would bust a nut if they complied by asking typical questions of the other candidates and then something like "This question is for you Mrs. Clinton. What...is your favorite color?!"

The same way all of our Demagogues 'handle' difficult foreign adversaries: groveling, snivelling surrender.

Shrillery should be required to memorize John Bolton's "Surrender is Not An Option!" (I haven't read it yet myself but I plan to do so!!)
