Thursday’s vice presidential debate moderator has known President Obama for years, reports TheDC’s Josh Peterson:
“President Barack Obama was a guest at the 1991 wedding of ABC senior foreign correspondent and vice presidential debate moderator Martha Raddatz, The Daily Caller has learned. Obama and groom Julius Genachowski, whom Obama would later tap to head the Federal Communications Commission were Harvard Law School classmates at the time and members of the Harvard Law Review.
The deck is stacked against Paul Ryan because the Guy who is asking the pre-scripted questions like's Obama more?
And just to be clear isn't it televised where any sign of favoritism would lose him his job?
Hardly a news story
Hardly a news story, i am sure Romney hangs with a gang of good ole' boys with all sorts of positions across the board that are far more suspect of corruption than a supervised debate moderator**.
After TheDC made preliminary inquiries Monday to confirm Obama’s attendance at the wedding, ABC leaked a pre-emptive statement to news outlets including Politico and The Daily Beast Tuesday, revealing what may have been internal network pressure felt just days before Raddatz was scheduled to moderate the one and only vice-presidential debate Thursday night.
Both Politico and The Daily Beast jumped to ABC and Raddatz’s defense. The Huffington Post, a liberal news outlet, joined them shortly thereafter, while calling “unusual” ABC’s attempt to kill the story before it gained wide circulation.
* The Romney campaign agreed to the rules and who the
moderator is. So in reality, this shouldn't be a thread
about Obama, it should be a thread questioning
Romney's judgement. "
The debate questions and rule are already agreed upon by both parties. I don't get the point of this thread. I could see if the debates were actual real and unscripted, but they aren't so this doesn't matter.
