the problem isn’t ‘soft peddling’
the issue is that biden has been given the questions and has had ample time to prepare his responses
I predict Slow Joe will come out insulting and provoking Ryan in an attempt to put him off his game.
I predict it will not work.
And let’s not forget who’s moderating the 3rd presidential debate, liberal Bob Schieffer. I’m sure that will be “fair” too.
I’d love to see Mitt ask old Bob:
Bob, you’re 76 years old, making millions per year and solidly in the 1% group. Why haven’t you retired and let the network hire a bunch of starving Columbia journalism grads with 100 grand in student debt?
"Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the waves....and it was calm."
Who is in charge of this committee that elects the moderators? Where is John Boehner in calling out this obvious bias?
People are onto this corrupt game now and this is just another glaring, in your face, example of it. The country is tired of this.
* Wolf Blitzer
*Candy "Cupcake" Crowley
*Terry Gross (Fresh Aire host from NPR)
*Bill Moyers from PBS
Looks like I wasn't far off. Who the crap is agreeing to this on the Republican side? Where is a Sean Hannity moderator spot or Ann Coulter or Michelle Malkin? Hell why not Rush or Glenn Beck even?
BTW who is going to be the moderator for the 2nd Presidential debate?
Everybody has a camera, and internet access.
The RNC needs to host it's own debates!
Candy Crowley is the 2nd prez debate mod
Lighten up dude, Grammar is begging for mercy... ;-)
No matter what the moderator’s question is, Paul Ryan can discuss what he wants to, and I would love to see him go after Biden with question after question about the current mess in Libya. In other words, ignore the moderator and debate Biden. What better way to show his ability to lead by avoiding being led by an obvious democrat hack. If he leans on Biden hard enough Old Joe will let something out of the bag I’m sure. Ryan just needs to be himself, and do what he’s been doing on the campaign trail, telling the truth to the American people. If he does that and rebuts every lie that Biden tells, like Romney did with Obama, he’ll do just fine.
Foreign policy? I think not.
Another line I’m sure will be hurled in the debate is Obama’s one-liner that Romney already gave up on half the country before he was elected (47%).
I expect Biden to do O’s dirty work so hang on.
Here's how it should go:
Senator Ryan. How do you feel about rape and incest as it relates to abortion and have you ever committed either?
Thank you. That is a very good question, and here is how I would answer that. Mr. Vice president. Did you confer with President Obama before, or after he ordered the attack on our Embassy in Libya, and is that the outcome that you had planned for? It appears that you were trying to wag the dog by his ears instead of my his tail, and unfortunately his ears were just too weak to do the job. Also can you tell the American people about the last time you shined the president's shoes?
Agree. If Biden acts like a dolt everyone will see. If the moderator acts like an Obama hack, people will see, the world will see. They can’t hide what they are. They will try to spin it away, but it will be there regardless.
In other words, you recommend Ryan to ignore the question...
Did you watch the Palin/Biden debate? Sarah Palin clearly won that debate, but not in the minds of the media.
Why does the GOP keep agreeing to superannuated, fundamentally biased, lefty moonbats as moderators?
I want Krauthammer! “Please cut the crap, Mr. Vice President, and answer the question.”
R. Emmett Tyrrell: “President Obama. Hello? Are you there, sir? No sir, we can’t move on. The penultimate question again, phrased slightly differently, “Antiquarian scholars .... “
George Will: “The Cardinals have three men on base. You are third base coach. OK, do you ... “
Because the Pubbies play by the Queensbury rules...
Exactly. Questions like that are designed to be unanswerable in a way that is realistic. It's nothing but a "gotcha" opportunity. Ryan should discuss the issues that are the most pressing such as, national security, jobs, the economy, energy independence, freedom, adherence to the Constitution, and avoid being trapped into a long winded discussion about questions that are not forefront to Obama's sorry job as president. It's his debate to control but he has to be aggressive in challenging Biden. In other words,"Do not let the moderator lead where you don't want to go".
She already does that, get top invites, etc. She would become the TV equivalent of ‘box office poison’ if it was plainly evident that she was favoring Biden over Ryan. Her contract would not be renewed. She would probably go to MSNBC if they would hire her, but most likely would wind up on PBS. That’s where liberal journalists go when their politics becomes too evident............
Just giving him the questions in advance may allow him to prepare HIS responses, but does not prepare him for a response to RYAN’S responses.................
Looks like I was 3 for 3, but I was half heartedly joking, not thinking they really would use these far left liberal moderators. Who decides this crap?
