So....who is watching? What are you expecting? Considering the two parties have decided to have the moderator, Candy Crowley muzzled, it should be
nothing more than a circus act.
The audience will get to ask a pre-determined question and then their microphone will be shut off. If the candidates side-step or go off topic, the
moderator is not going to be allowed to reaffirm or re-ask the question.
I hope to keep this thread alive throughout the day to get people's opinion before and then discussion during and after the debate to see how many of
us called the scene.
I think it's another dog and pony show. If an audience member asks "What do you think about rising gas prices?", the candidates can say "Well I
think we should consider harvesting natural resources from the moon" and no one will be able to call them back to the actual question...pretty
My prediction? I'd say, for the interest of keeping this joke (the debate and election) appear to be legitimate...Obama will be scripted in for the
win...the third debate will be a draw....that way this appears to be "a close race".
Just my very jaded opinion of this demonstration...a total farce.
I want to hear everyone else's expectations though.
