Well, maybe they should clean up their act, get their many ducks in a row, and present some sensible points instead of wasting time with network/cable broadcasts that only exacerbate Kardiashianism.

The moderators caused that debacle last night. Maybe they should clean up their act?

Absolutely, they should. It should NOT be like a game show or reality-tv or "American Idol" episode.

Disgraceful. As I said, I totally agreed with Cruz's rant against them.

Darlin' the issue is that what you consider sensible and what one of them considers sensible are often about 180 degrees apart.

It's like the difference between libertarianism and socialism. For you, libertarianism is simply horrifying and makes no sense whatsoever, but for a libertarian, you'd have to be insane to think socialism is awesome.

That doesn't necessarily cast aspersions on either one, but it isn't like they are going to see eye to eye either.

Please refrain from calling me "darlin'", thanks very much.
I actually was listening with an open mind. I wanted to hear what they said. I watched the damned thing - did you?

Tsk, tsk, double standards.


It is the best way I know how to simulate a drawl.

As to watching the debate? Parts of it (on the commercial style). There was a baseball game on with my hometown team in it too. I watched all of the first two debates, painful as that second one was.

I didn't expect this one to be terribly revealing given the lack of actual economic questions.

Every American should expect to spend the lion's share of his or her work week actually working for his or her family, not the government.

I find AugustusMasonicus to be a reasonable, approachable, coherent member of this site. Try it! It goes a long way toward mutual respect.

WTF? A drawl??

I said in the OP I was watching the game.
The entire debate was supposed to be about ECONOMIC issues: Your Money, Your Vote.

In order for the topic to be economic issues, the moderators would have to ask appropriate questions. Don't blame the candidates for the moderators lack of skill and intelligence. Should they ask tough, probing questions? Absolutely! Problem is, they didn't do their jobs.

I've already acknowledged how the moderators were baiting the candidates.
They definitely were. Which is why it came across as more of a game-show than an actual debate.

Yes, you know. Drawl, a bit like this.

And that has nothing to do with the candidates. They had no control over the questions. But of course, they got destroyed, so it's their fault.

You left out handsome and intelligent.


Or was that intentional? Hmmmmmm.

My point is, we can not blame the candidates for the debate not being focused. I want to hear questions that elicit responses from the candidates that gives me an idea which one aligns closest to my ideas about what is important. Since I can't sit down with each candidate and do an interview, I rely on the moderators to do it. Since they can't or won't they are actually doing a disservice to the public. Actually I think that was their purpose. As Cruz pointed out, no one thinks they are going to vote Republican anyway. Their whole goal seems to be to torpedo all the GOP candidates, instead of actually doing their jobs.

The GOP debate was a clown show, for sure. That's what the liberal media wants. They did nothing but attack the GOP candidates and pit then against each other. In the dem debate, they actually asked substantive questions. They didnt ask the dems if they were running a comic book villian campaign or what the candidates thoughts were on fantasy football.

They had TOTAL CONTROL over what came out of their flapping cake-holes.

How hard is it to say, "That question doesn't deserve an answer. But I will tell you what I think about issue A and issue B and issue M."

??????

Hmmm?

That one did have me laughing at the thought though.
