‘Seething’ Over Criticisms
Of Debate Questions, Lack
Of Diversity Among Moderators

PBS host and debate moderator, Jim Lehrer, is ‘seething’ over criticisms already being directed at the Commission on Presidential Debates according to a report in the New York Times. From the topics to be discussed to the racial and demographic makeup of the moderators, many of the CPD’s choices have come under intense scrutiny. Lehrer is, reportedly, having none of it. The CPD and the debates are already coming under fire from critics who do not see enough diversity in the lineup of moderators or the topics up for discussion. The moderators for the three presidential debates and

I have never understood the rationale for debate commissions, moderators, arbitrary questions, and all the rest of the window dressing. If Lincoln and Douglas et al. could debate without all the extras surely moderns could do so as well. The extra baggage just gets in the way and distorts the view of the candidates. It converts the debates into a weird combination of a TV quiz show and a beauty pageant.

It would be far simpler and much more informative merely to give the candidates a forum with a few simple rules and let them have at it, i.e. each other. There is too much process and too little content to the present format, regardless of who the "moderators" are.

Abolishing the question and answer format would also eliminate the ever present possibility of cheating by advance preparation from leaked questions.

Don't bother to watch the debate.
Obama has already won the debate.
He is THE WON.

It is over.
He has been re-immaculated.
We don't need ballots in November.
We have the lame-stream media to tell us what to think.

I'm actually surprised that Romney let the debate preparers get away with appointing such a stacked deck of moderators and topics. Couldn't he demand that at least one of the debates be moderated by, say, Brit Hume?

Let him seethe. Want diversity? How about Arthel Nevill or Charles Payne, both African Americans from Fox. Want Asian minorities, how about Melissa Lee from CNBC or Betty Lu from Bloomberg. The criticism is correct. It's all white and liberal. While Lehrer is the least offensive of the three for the first debate they could have done a whole lot better.

Liehrer, propagandist not journalist could never make it at FOX NEWS. He would not be fit to sweep the mail room.

R&R should listen to those of us who have been calling for an end of taxpayer money going to PBS & NPR. Romney can issue a blanket reversal of ALL of 0's executive edicts on day one. On day two he can close down the 'public TV & radio' branch of the demoRAT campaign, permanently.

Safe and reliable Jim Lehrer will safely and reliably ask Gov. Romney questions about abortion, same sex marriage, don't-ask-don't-tell, Obamacare contraception and that should safely and reliably fill up the allotted time for questions on "domestic policy." Debt, deficit, gun-running, exploding insurance premiums, death panels, gas prices and the "lesser issues" will just have to wait until 2016.

Lehrer asked John Kerry “You've repeatedly accused President Bush - not here tonight, but elsewhere before - of not telling
the truth about Iraq, essentially of lying to the American people about Iraq. Give us some examples of what you consider to be his not telling the truth.”
Want to bet that Jim "I have no bias" Lehrer asks Romney this question about Libya and Obama?

Peering into our crystal ball at the upcoming debate:


Lehrer: Mr President, ketchup or mustard on your hot dog?

Obama: (reading from TelePrompter) Your're assuming Michele will even let me have a hot dog!

(Crowd roars with laughter and applause)

Lehrer: Gov Romney (crowd boos), how dare you run against the greatest President this country has ever had?

Romney: Bias? What bias? (crowd boos)

#5 has it absolutely right! These are not debates just Q&A sessions. You want questions? OK each candidate should be able to ask the other candidate whatever he wants.
I hope, if Romney senses a setup, 'gotcha' question that he refuses to answer it. Newt did that in one of the debates and came off looking very good.

The reason that the media is so pleased as punch about hosting these debates is that they believe they push up the viewer numbers thus making off all their political ads.

As for Jim Lehrer, he is just covering all his liberal bases.

Romney is a gifted debater. If the questions are slanted against him, he'll use it to his advantage. The moderators will be judged on their fairness, and if they fail to pose tough questions to the President, it will show.

Was this before or after Jim delivered his questions to Obama? Obama needs about a day or so to have the right answers.

You know, he needs to get them in the right order or it will sound like Johnny Carson's Karnack the Magnificent (without the laughs).

Put the candidates on soap boxes under the bright lights outdoors and let them deal with each other for two hours...just like Obama's hero, Honest Abe.

We would learn more about their character and unflattering habits; we could view them dealing with flies and moths--beats a moderator and media flacks.

They don't care about diversity of ideology. They only care about the "racial and demographic makeup of the moderators" -- which should be completely IRRELEVANT!!

I can just see these idiots trying to create their perfect "diversity":

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season.
