Dem Debates Redux...

'Sorely Disappointed'
By Jeff Jarvis


I am sorely disappointed.


CNN selected too many obvious, dutiful, silly questions.

Anderson Cooper didn't pace the debate; he tried to trip the runners.

The videos were too tiny to be given justice.

The candidates' videos were just commercials.

There were far too few issues.

There were too many candidates.

The candidates gave us the same answers they always give.

I have no doubt -- no doubt -- that we, the people, would have done a better job picking the questions than CNN did.

I have no doubt that we would have heard far more substance without CNN and TV cameras in this. This should have been a debate held online: candidates answering questions directly without the need for CNN, Anderson Cooper, or their questions.

We end with the usual horserace blather of the TV commentators.

A terribly wasted opportunity, this was.

Little puppet people...all doing the same thing and saying the same thing. Will their noses grow long with lies? Will they ever be real people?

As for Hillary and Obama-rama...how come they always show up at the same cities, at the same time? Are they using the same marketing people? Whatzzzup with that?

CF-Betcha that Hitlery and Obama-rama-ding-dong will end up on the same ticket, that's why!
And the thought makes me wretch!

Did you see the focus group after the debate? It was so sad to see the Left again honor "good looking" "sincere" "charismatic" and "nice" over ANY substance. They simply can't talk substance.... it was rather scary, frankly.

Hello TMW and Z-

No , the DEMIS did not benefit from the UTUBE hoopla.

They looked as dumb as ever.

Some even dumber and that is the only trick they mangaed to pull.


Stay well , friends.
