Genachowski attended Obama’s wedding without wife - ABC did not deny that Raddatz was invited
Daily Caller ^ | October 10, 2012 | Josh Peterson

ABC News told the Daily Caller Wednesday that vice presidential debate moderator and ABC News senior foreign correspondent Martha Raddatz was not at President Barack Obama’s wedding to Michelle in 1992.

The news outlet, however, did not deny that Raddatz was invited to the Obama wedding when asked. Raddatz’s then husband, Julius Genachowski, was in attendance..

An earlier investigation by TheDC revealed that Obama attended Raddatz’s wedding the year prior when she married Genachowski

Goodness. I thought this story was much worse. I thought that the Obama’s went to HER WEDDING not some wedding 20 years ago. This might not get the attention due to the oldness of it.

The initial story was about Obama attending her wedding. Which happened.

If Romney cutting a fellow high school student’s hair was worth the front page of the Washington Post, this is just as big. And it’s much newer.

but even so...big deal. Who in the Washington press corps isn’t an obama ass kisser? They’re all rotten to the core and one’s just as corrupt as the other.

I really wish they would find something he did yesterday and go full bore on him. Let’s get this election overwith. Romney is going to win and I am more confident that even three weeks ago, but let’s find something so terrible that we can just coast the rest of the way.

No reason to have a moderator who was invited to Obamas wedding and he attended hers, for election debate. MSM needs to be called out.

If not they will need to disclose this to millions of viewers.

Her ex husband was a major obama campaign bundler in 2008. Was rewarded with Top FCC job. They had a son together.

To answer your question directly, precisely because of RINOs like Alan Simpson who is on the debate committee and year after gets rolled by couterparts. Alan Simpson has made a career of being the Democrat’s house servant. They treat him real nice and in turn he gives them everything they can get from him — and he believes he’s being a swell guy and has no clue what he’s doing/

The story, such as it is, is about the tight webs that connect all of our domestic enemies.

How would Liberals feel about having Rush Limbaugh moderate a debate?

Exactly...this is no surprise at all. The media people are so intertwined with the Dem party...when these relationships are exposed...they just look us in the face and say...”why is this a problem”?

It’s just how it is.

I was just going to say that because the “we”(they, in reality)in this case are spineless RINOs; but, your answer offers more evidence. Simpson babe needs to stay in Jackson Hole never to be heard from again.

” To answer your question directly, precisely because of RINOs like Alan Simpson who is on the debate committee and year after gets rolled by couterparts.”

I assumed as much. Fossils like Simpson and Hatch are known for this behavior.

Good question. We never stand up to these left wingers. Never!

Yeah, this is the same Alan Simpson / Bob Dole / John Danforth RINO appeasement wing of the Republican party who think that the opinions of the New York Times and the Washington Post are important. They also think that these Drive-By types are impartial debaters.

I can’t wait for the town hall. You know this is going to be a circus. I’m bracing for some pony-tailed guy to ask Romney why he let a man’s wife die or whether he likes abusing animals.

There is some potential humor here with the name “Raddatz”, because it is very similar to a Dragon Ball Z anime character named “Raditz”, an antagonist to the hero.

http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/Raditz

This is made funnier because one of the oddities of the Dragon Ball Z series is that often, two antagonistic fighters would spend most of an entire half hour episode “powering up” while screaming at each other.

This makes a parody of the VP debates easy, by having Raditz as the moderator. Then Joe Biden and Paul Ryan power up while screaming, with Raditz powering up and screaming as well. All at the same time.

(I’ll add that if anyone is a fan of the series, other fans created a series of hilarious parody videos of the cartoons, and have made 30 of these so far. Very raucous humor, with some NSFW language. It’s best to start from the start.)

Wish I could disagree. A-Z will be working to befuddle Romney....planted questioners, moderator interference, and God knows what else. If I were Romney, I would drive home the point that Obama has failed at every thing he tried, and that Obama himself said that if he failed to make good on his promises, he doesn’t deserve a second term.

For the simple reason that journalism controls all the TV access - and if you want televised debates bad, you will get them bad.
If both candidates really wanted balanced debates, they would do the debates online and let the TV journalism outlets pick up the feed, or not. And you would have a great many debates, and you would not trouble to bring the candidates together physically but instead would have both candidates on a split screen, and the candidates would control the microphones via a chess timer to force them to equalize the time. No moderator would be needed.
