"Weak Field" Spanks CNBC Liberals (in debate)
American Thinker ^ | 11-10-11 | C. Edmund Wright

Posted on 11/10/2011 8:40:55 AM PST by C. Edmund Wright

Putting aside Rick Perry's awful 53 seconds, the real story of the CNBC debate last night was how thoroughly the so-called weak field of Republican Presidential candidates collectively embarrassed the panel aggregated by the financial network. This was not lost on questioners Maria Bartiromo and Jim Cramer, whose demeanor change was obvious as the debate wore on. Meanwhile, in the post debate questioning, manchild Carl Quintenilla asked perhaps the worst question in the history of American journalism by trying to couch Herman Cain's "Queen Nancy" reference in light of his "problems with women." Puh-leeze.

Carl Quintenilla has a lot in common with Obama. They are both in their present positions because of affirmative action. What a horrible mistake that Leftist policy has been!

My God is CNBC the most pompously self worshiping network or what? I never watched them before and the blow hard self aggrandizement of their intros was embarrassing for them.

It is a weak field. The fact that they can still run rings around liberals when they focus their effort on doing that just shows how a weak conservative is still better than any liberal.

“This was not lost on questioners Maria Bartiromo and Jim Cramer..”

Mental pygmies shouldn’t try to brain-wrestle with their betters.

Harwood = Weak Sister, Maria = Lost At Sea, Cramer = Insane Moron!!! That sums it up nicely!!! Please....Please.....Pubbies, No more debates withj the entire group of leftist retards at CNBC, MSNBC or the NBC mother ship!!! let them send in their questions, if they must!!! Mr. Cain ate Maria’s lunch!!! She was stunned!!! No more words from her after Cain shiut her mouth for her. As for Harwood, in one short sentance, Mitt Romney, to his credit sent him back to his room for a permanent time out. What whimps and low life!!!! Actually, there is a lesson to be learned here. It is fine and OK to be diplomatic, cordial and coopeerative in responding to difficult inquiries, but when confronted out of the blue, a harsh response is equal to the hard questioner!!! Cain & Romney were outstanding in taking these two “dirt bags” down!!!

1. Cain’s comment was regarding ‘Princess Nancy’ not ‘Queen Nancy’.

2. The Mods were the worst of any debate so far. If they didn’t like the direction a response was taking, they frequently interrupted the responder.

The Mods acted like they were auditioning for positions with the ‘liberal’ MSM. Many of their questions were ridiculous. At Gingrich pointed out to one: You expect me to answer that in 30 seconds?

>> Except if your name is Rick Perry. LOL You’re lying gutter trash! >>

That is a harsh accusation and does not have one shred of evidence to support it. My analysis of Perry last night was from someone who likes him and was cringing FOR him, not AT him.

My favorite Cain answer was in response to the question “What's wrong with the Dodd/Frank legislation”.

Cain replied that #1 it doesn't deal with the problems at Fannie and Freddie, and #2&3 Dodd and Frank.

by trying to couch Herman Cain's "Queen Nancy" reference in light of his "problems with women."

As pointed out, it was 'Princess Nancy'. I support Cain, so I was disappointed to hear him say that he probably shouldn't have said it.

Any sexual harassment toward Nacy Pelosi would be grounds for automatic removal from any office and reason for a lengthy stay in a nice padded room.

The moderators were incredulous that none of the candidates (even Huntsman) are willing to bail out Italy or forgive college loans.

The one guy looked constipated all night, especially when Cain made his Dodd-Frank joke.

...but I think Carl Q said “Queen Nancy” in his question.

I may be wrong, but I was quoting Carl Q not Cain. Either way, you get the point.

He did... ...Quintanilla is just another NBC/Obama stooge.

I do wish our side would stop apologizing("probably should not have made...")when they make a statement of fact. It makes them sound like they cannot control their own thoughts/words, let alone debate someone elses...not a reassuring quality for potential voters looking for someone with conviction.

Nancy does come across as royalty whenever she speaks...when she uses the word "pee-pol" you can literally hear the word "little" in front of it.

Evidence? You can't even be honest on your own thread. You posted this was "not a commentary on particular candidates per se." Yet that is all it was!

You call Perry a loser, twice and link him to the losers at CNBC. Pure tripe! Like I said, you're lying gutter trash!

This was the best debate I ever watched IN SPITE of the mediators’ covert attempt at sabotaging the candidates. They tried to ingratiate themselves into the debate and made fools of themselves. I am proud of how all the candidates handled them, and even Romney, when asked if he would hire Cain, told them Cain did a good job of answering the question, and Cain did. And, what in the hell did that have to do with the economy? Maria was showboating, and it backfired! Some business channel. /s

That was Steve Leesman, he looks that way all the time, he's a dedicated Keynesian who Rick Santelli regularly smacks down.

Absolutely true. I see the Mod agrees.

Your attacks on me are not only unwarranted, but causing you to miss what is a fun read that has been widely linked and quoted today. And your reading comprehension is minimal at best. I am not talking about candidates PER SE but I AM TALKING ABOUT CANDIDATE PERFORMANCES IN THIS DEBATE. I am sorry to have over estimated your ability to understand the difference.

And 99% of the piece is about CNBC having a bad night, and 1% about Perry’s bad night - WHICH BY THE WAY PERRY HIMSELF ADMITS.

What is your problem? No wait, I don’t care what it is.

Worst aspect of the debate for me: the CNBC crew was barely to the right of MSDNC.

That was the biggest takeaawy. Herman answered first and every other candidate essenatially the same thing. I thought Cramer was going to go apoplectic...” BUt But...you can’t just let them collapse!!!!”

He was asking questions like it was an episode of ‘Mad Money’.

And then, the last question he asked of Cain regarding the manipulations of stock markets...I actually wanted to hear that...however, it was the epitome of hypocracy for him to be asking...he wrote the book on how to rip off the market!!!..from the inside!!! Herman should have responded that he’d first have him arrested. :-)and that he would be bringing Patrick Byrne (overstock.com) to head the SEC.

Biggest winner, the United States of America.

I was struck by that also. I knew Cramer was Cramer and Harwood was a big leftie - I am surprised how lefty Bartiromo was and sorry that Kudlow was not a questioner. He would have been great. And Carl Quintenilla was just pathetic. He is equal mentally to Shep Smith of Fox, which is to say I think clinically retarded. And I mean that in the literal sense.

That left it to Santelli to be the only voice of reason.

You wouldn't if you listened to her socialist tendencies on CNBC. Cramer was a big Obama.

I don’t watch much of the time slots where Maria B. is on the air. I’ve seen her take the opposite side of an argument with Kudlow - but I could never tell if she was being a lib or just being devils advocate. After last night, we all know the answer.

And yes, Cramer has been a big shill for Obama WHILE CALLING PELOSI A MARXIST — which means he has zero political IQ. Proof knowing how to invest is not the same thing as knowing a damned thing about business.

Cramer believed in Obama and Pelosi's ability to cure our economy. He bet heavily and lost heavily. Now he despises what they did to his portfolio.

Cramer got lucky years ago when some dude gave him an account to manage. For the last decade or more he has been nothing more than a loud-mouthed shill.

What amazes me is how he blames Pelosi but lets Obama off the hook - as if there’s an ounce of difference between the two philsophically.
