I believe the dog was only on the roof because there was no room inside and they were already dragging a black man from the trailer hitch.

Sarah Palin would be a lot more objective than any of the elite liberals on the list. Don’t you agree?

If CBS, PBS, CNN, and ABC is what the Rinos arrived at after hard negotiating, then they’re stupid, and they deserve what they’ve agreed to.

If they’ve arrived at same old ask-a-question format, and I’m sure they have because there’s no imagination with these phonies, then they’ve lost me.

I’m just not interested in defending anything about this process, not even the candidates.

I suspect Romney’s team is happy with the left wing moderating them, since this is the only way for Romney to look conservative in comparison.

do the candidates have any say in the choices?

Romney let himself get bated by the moderators in the candidate debates-making him snark back and forth with santorum instead of talking about anything important - I hope he doesn’t do it again but chances are he will

btw why only 3 presidential debates and only 1 vp debate?

we are picking a new leader for our country, the candidate debates never stopped, there was one every week or so for crying out loud!

I am pretty sure ryan won’t be manipulated by the moderators

can they flip the ticket? :D

Better question, why go to a debate moderated by the lamestream media? Why are they allowed to be the self-declared arbiters of the political scene?

I would not go unless the moderators came from both sides of think tanks or something or the questions were generated by computer selection from a battery submitted by voters and given by Billy Graham.

Agh! Not Candy Crowley! I can’t stand to listen to that woman speak. Something about her style drives me batty.

Of the rest...the usual suspects. Bleah. At least they’re not throwing Katie Couric or Brian Williams at us, but still...bleah.

The guy I always wanted to see host one of these debates was (the late) Louis Rukeyser. That guy was awesome!

This won’t be a debate. Hussein will have all the questions ahead of time in order to prepare relatively intelligible responses. Romney will look lik a deer in the headlights by comparison.

Boycotting would be a good thing.

Who agreed to these clowns? Can’t the debates be moderated by some political commentators who actually get viewers/ratings? Then it would be all Fox News commentators which I wouldn’t complain about other than they tend to be tough on both sides which is the way it should be. Bring in Rush Limbaugh, Mancow, Ann Coulter, Bill Bennett, Greta Van Susteran.

A link about who is obama's mom? I'm not interested. You seem obsessed with me - with your constant posting to me about nonsense, irrelevant statements, and what YOU think since I won't bow to your god.

Do you always have a problem when someone tells you 'NO'?

Control issues are characterized by a person’s need to micromanage and orchestrate the actions and behaviors of others. Control is a reaction to fear.

No argument from me on that! Romney was my third from last, ahead of only Paul and Huntsman for many reasons. OTOH I sure wish he would accept the help he needs from people big enough (and skilled enough) to help him in spite of how he treated them.

“Why does the GOP participate in these charades designed to make our candidates look bad?”

Read on an earlier thread that the RNC is mulling over the moderaters this year. Hmmm. Could they possibly be mildly interested in considering a level playing field this cycle?

It was suggested we call in to the RNC and push for decent moderaters.

It astounds me that after all these decades of liberals controlling the MSM, no major Republican EVER calls them on it. Not one presidential candidate ever holds out for fair debate moderation. Day after month after year after decade, Republicans smile at the media and act as if being nice to them will make them hate the Republicans one bit less. Amazing that so many smart people could be so consistently idiotic as to not see where the core problem lies.
