Can we actually return to a time of politeness when our candidates act like impolite brats?

That only works if you rewrite history. Marxist socialists are so good at doing that.

I am so pleased that this a post was created about political etiquette. As a business man, Trumps arrogance is an assets. It can be disguised as confidence or be used as an intimidation tactic. Either way, an arrogant person will usually excel in sales. In my opinion, Trump not altering his persona when entering politics will keep him out of the White House. It was very irresponsible for him to not promote political correctness. Phoniness will always be one of the only common denominators shared by politicians, from left to right (and everything between). We hope that phoniness is just a more polished version of their normals selves but, in reality, it's an entirely different person behind closed doors. Some may say, "at least we know who the real Trump is" to justify his offensive remarks. His most passionate supporters are now mimicking his rants and proudly attack certain demographics. For some reason, Donald thinks crass is needed in the delivery of his messages, to have greatest impact. Unlike the majority of his running mates, he's had decades of experience as a celebrity. He has to know the importance of public relations and, likely, has some of the most elite reps on his payroll. Having access to them, he could of used them to his advantage and created a more relatable facade. Trump could have voiced the same exact opinions but depersonalized his attacks so his proposed resolution would actually get heard. The citizens want a leader with compassion during tragedy. Someone who's going to strengthen relations with Leaders around the world. DT would nuke a country if their leader didn't answer his phone call. He's too impulsive when his ego is threatened and I'd be terrified if he'd have so much power.

OP I don't know what you're talking about. If you're referring to the recent CNBC republican debate, then I think they acted as proper gentlemen. The moderators were very disrespectful to them. The candidates weren't allowed opening or closing comments - what kind of self-respecting political debate doesn't allow the candidates opening and closing comments? Then when they answered questions the mods were constantly interrupting them. Then they were asked pointless questions that had nothing to do with the big issues like our economy or healthcare or our military or anything relevant to the state of our country today.

If you watched that debate and you think the republican candidates were the ones being disrespectful, I don't even know how to relate to you. We obviously each have very different meanings for the word.

Funny how the left is poking fun at the list of demands they wrote for any future debates. It includes mandatory opening and closing comments - something that should be a given for a political debate. It also asks the mods to refrain from pitting candidates one on another, and to refrain from frivolous questions.

Is it really that hard to conduct an unbiased debate where you ask the candidates relevant questions and give each of them a fair chance to answer? Don't you see what a circus CNBC turned that debate into? All the candidates are asking for is a little professionalism.

I think Ted Cruz hit it right on the money when he confronted the mods during the debate.

a reply to: Dimithae

And then there is Obama who made fun of voters who questioned his birth certificate -- enabled by the media -- and sent a soldier to prison for asking to see his birth certificate only to release it a year later when Donald Trump asked to see it.

Now that is rude.
