CNN/YouTube Debate Was a Sham

CNN/YouTube Debate Was a Sham

The CNN/YouTube Republican presidential debate serves as a perfect example of why conservatives refer to CNN as "Clinton News Network."

Republicans should have declined CNN's invitation, just like Democrats declined Fox News, though it's doubtful Fox would have orchestrated or permitted a similar ambush of Democratic candidates.

The "debate" involved many questions designed not so much to highlight the candidates' differences (other than Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney on immigration) but to place the entire conservative agenda in a negative light.

Many were "When did you stop beating your wife?" questions because they included premises calculated to make Republicans look bad irrespective of the candidates' responses. Even if CNN didn't conspire with the questioners, the effect was the same.

You'd never catch Democrats in such a situation.

Let me give you a few examples and, with some, offer alternative responses.

Good article, Donal. David Limbaugh is a good writer.

The first problem with the debate...besides being on that Republicans expect the opposition to play fair.

The second problem with that premise is that Dems don't even play fair with each other!

David's absolutely right! I wrote about this too on FrontPage on 12-1. It was entitled, "The CNN/You Tube Debate, an Ambush that Failed."

They reralloy think we're idiots you know.

We should follow Our Leaders example and only allow those sympathetic to our cause to ask questions. There is no room in America to allow a non-Republican to ask a question at our debates. None!
