It’s late, I’ve got a toothache, I’ve scanned 2 transcripts. Am I reading this right...the moderator introduced each of the candidates except Hunter? Tell me I’m wrong, please.
moderator introduced each of the candidates except Hunter?
***I dunno, because, also — Ive got a toothache; recovering from a root canal. Maybe that’s the problem: Hunter supporters are more susceptible to tooth decay. ;-)
I read a good part of the first transcript. I noticed he did not introduce Duncan Hunter. I scanned the second transcript and noticed the same thing. I wondered if there was some mistake and it was n’t added to the transcript. There are introductions for all candidates but Hunter. It could just be the typical marginalizations of Hunter, though. It was frustrating to scan it and see Giuliani, Romney, Huckabee, McCain, and to an extent, Thompson, getting the bulk of the questions and more time to speak. I commend Duncan Hunter for doing a great job with the questions asked to him and in the time alloted.
You are reading correctly, but both transcripts are wrong. I did watch the beginning of the debate on KMEX in Los Angeles. Hunter was introduced along with the others.
That is what it looks like to me. Perhaps the person who did the transcript left out the introduction of Hunter, just don’t know. I also noticed that they mentioned the marital status of all the candidates and how many children and/or grandchildren they have, except for Thompson.
