Where: Drake University, Des Moines, Iowa.
When: 9 p.m. EST, 6 p.m. PST, Saturday, December 10, 2011. Debate scheduled to last two hours.
Broadcast on: ABC Televsion.
Moderators: Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos.
Candidates: Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry and Rick Santorum.
Me neither. I'd like to see the Trump debate, though. I want to hear serious questions and serious answers that matter to Republicans.
All the debates so far have been left wing moderated, designed to turn off the Independents. The candidates kiss their liberal butts for an hour, anyway, with a big smile on their faces.
so true..if ABC said this debate must be done bottomless, our side would complain of the cold
Enjoy the upcoming extravaganza!
Damn! That was so detailed and realistic I think I’ll skip the debate and watch that ‘99 Fiesta Bowl. Naw, on second thought the Vols pulled that one off
All candidates will be medicated tonight.
Paul will say something, while channeling Gandhi, that makes the cameraman shake his head.
Rick S will remind us of our need for moral clarity.
Michelle will (man I hope she doesn’t wear that Russian outfit) try to piss everyone off.
Perry will be awake most of the debate.
Romney will move about to get just the right light on that hair.
At Some Point Newt will, with clarity, dramatically coin a new exceptionally bold substantive idea that will fundamentally and monumentally alter the transformation of the eco-political landscape. Or, in other words, he will numb the moderators and leave the others nodding their heads.
I think there is a bet amongst tonights Newt-bashers; the first to nod yes to a Newt response is O U T!
“and it will be a two man race in Florida, Perry and Newt...”
At least I’ll give the Perry worshippers credit for not allowing Reality to plague them.
Hi Saca - just noticed you here;) Seems like old times.
Way past my bedtime - ha ha. Heard Harris Faulkner mention a total lunar eclipse ‘in a few minutes’. Sure enough there is a beautiful full moon out tonight, but the eclipse can only be seen on the west coast;( Dagnabbit!
Trying to stay alert - sending ESP messages to Newt - to stay focused, friendly and fumr.
does anyone hav a link to ABC TV online?
“Trying to stay alert - sending ESP messages to Newt - to stay focused, friendly and fumr.”
Yes. And not start off by saying “Well, it’s obvious I’m going to be the candidate, so why don’t the rest of you just go home?”
I like watching the debates for Michele. She makes my antennae perk straight up. Wish TX could kidnap her.
I think you might be spot on. I just want Newt NOT to back down. Not to apoligize for anything, and certainly not to take bait and drop to the pathetic Romney attack dog attitude.
Newt should be above all of this. Americans love a winner. The enemy is not on stage. The enemy is Obama. I pray Newt will keep with the message that’s worked and that is to attack Obama.
Basically, there is not much difference between Romney and Newt. I think those of us on FR feel that NEwt is best equipped to speak frankly and clearly regarding the distinction between our side and Obama’s side.
This man is not my president. He doesn’t speak for me...
You could make money with that crystal ball;)
Nailed it!!! LOL!
However, I voted for President Goldwater who literally got "nuked" by an ad that actually never ran in the paid media, but ran gratis in every news program in November, 1964!!!
I don't understand politicians or talk hosts who don't engage in saying stuff, or attacking stuff that the people like, or despise. Trump and Noot do it as do most "new media" talk radio hosts, but no body else seems to capitalize on this and I believe it's why Noot is doing so well currently, for the time being, until further opportunities for him to screw up present themselves like the beginning of his campaign!!!
The ABC livestream is already going, turns on automatically when you go to the homepage. Just filler music now, until 9PM EST.
Here’s some classic Stephanopoulos...
Stephanopoulos: “Bill Clinton has no character problem”
Anyone know how long it’s going to be tonight? 90 min or 2 hours?
I had the same dilemma as you. I had to look up ABC.
It’s channel 8 on my network.
Watch for George to ignore the hell out of Perry. His contagion WANT to run against Newt, now that Romney’s been effectively deflated.
I predict Perry will have to demand time to finish an answer at least 3X.
Just once I would like to see a political debate, primary or general, where the candidates all get a shot to talk about a particular policy question.
This reality show crap where the moderator uses the most time of anyone doesn’t do anyone any good. The kids won’t learn it in school, give them a chance to see a real debate on TV at least.
