Skip to comments.ABC fails ethics test
Posted on 10/11/2012 5:40:28 AM PDT by opentalk
Martha Raddatz is the moderator of tonights vice presidential debate. In 1991, Barack Obama attended her wedding. A year later, her then-husband, now a high level administration appointee and a personal friend of the president, attended the Obamas wedding. Irrelevant information?
Put it this way: If Raddatz were a judge, shed likely have to recuse herself from cases pertaining to the Obamas.
Were not arguing that Raddatz will slant tonights debate in the Obama campaigns favor any more than a member of Congress would automatically vote for an appropriation simply because it helps a campaign contributor.
We are arguing that the public has a right to know the facts about Raddatzs relationship to the president.
...Remember when former Clinton staffer George Stephanopoulos opened the GOP primary debate he moderated with a bizarre string of questions about birth control questions that just happened to dovetail with the Obama campaigns newly-minted war on women theme?

...wasn’t she just installed as the “new” moderator?
This story is just being passed around conservative blogs.
What good is that supposed to do? No news network is reporting this, and she still going to “moderate” it.
It’s out there. The Independents will be watching for any and all preceived aid or softballs lobbed to Biden.
If she gives Biden any cues, help, or cuts Ryan in an attempt to aid Biden, it will be noticed and tabulated by them.
Actions have consequences.
It’s a shame that someone from ABC like Jake Tapper couldn’t have been the moderator. Jake would be fair and would ask pertinent questions.
Well, here is the reality of this. Most of America sees, smells the bias in the MSM today and has shown their lack of appreciation to it by selecting other venues to gather their news. TV Ratings prove that beyond dispute.
So go head play your game. 70 million Americans saw Zero get his ass kicked last week and notice the lack of coverage on the Libya Scandal and coverup with the assistance of the Prestitutes.
All any bias tonight by the moderator will do is reinforce the press is in the bag for Zero. It’s a net loss for them.
Ryan just needs to slip in a “and what did Baraq give you for a wedding gift?” snark at the appropriate moment.
I would guess the obama team has a copy of the debate questions. They are slimy enough.
What was Mr. Obama’s position in 1991?
How did Ms. Raddatz know him?
If she screws with the debate, Ryan can eat her alive.
Newt set the precedent and showed the way. He was applauded for the effort.
Great job GOPe. Couldn’t have these great debate moderators without your help.
If we know this information, so does Paul Ryan. Either Ryan is capable of handling a “debate” with a Baraqi stooge, or he isn’t. Anyway, if she’s like other leftist women, she’s no more intelligent than she is attractive ... just a lockstep Party drone.
These people live in an imaginary bubble. Their view of the demographical geography of the US would have NY, L.A., and D.C. comprising the majority of our country. The rest of our nation is viewed as a third world wasteland.
You, and, and everyone else knows this. Yet another example that the corrupt MSM is the enemy of the American people.
She should be deposed to determine her role in the
FOX news has also reported it today as well....the news is getting around.
we will never have a moderator who hosted Romney at their wedding.
..ABC will not deny she was invited to Obamas wedding. (Her then husband attended.)
Since she knew Obama before his marriage, I wonder what she knows about his homosexuality. (Women know ...) Too bad Ryan can’t turn the tables and put HER on the spot ...
Wrong. It gets to facebook, and leaks into the moderate world there. It's called 'circulation'.
What good is that supposed to do? No news network is reporting this, and she still going to moderate it.
All the network silence accomplishes is more demonstration that they are liberal, nay, COMMUNIST, shills.
