“Who scored a Body blow?” on of the mouths at Fox Cable News asked his camera audience this morning. The nation didn’t become better informed about any of the candidates and the perilous issues facing this fading Obamaruled country of ours. Fox presented it as entertainment looking for a knock out.
Unfortunately, the players agreed to play the games. They had little chance to disengage unless they all or all but one disengaged.
I would have preferred each to have been interviewed with everyone of them having the same questions……but one can dump this gotcha game the leftwing media has invented for American entertainment.
I am not a fan of Fox News except when it is compared to MSNBC, NBC, CNN, and so on ad nauseum in the arena of American news reporting. I can accept the general slants of events presented at Fox, but I can’t stand the bloviators who deliver the slants, led by Bill O’Reilly, the puff adder Eastern Conservative.
At least the news at Fox News has only a slant, and in general, it is my slant. I object to the way it is presented, but it is not foul as at other news sources.
The show they put on last night….the so called debate and its hype was a disgusting display o f hens pecking at each other. If the Republican Party had any taste, leadership, and a degree of power, its brainiers would put and end to all this conservative dancing on thin ice.
I admit that Barack Hussein Obama has a well developed talent…..that of jawing the the blab to match his Marxist obsession, ie, his determination to develop a large enough leftwing government body to force economic equality and therefore social, educational, religious, and every other kind of equality on the nation’s citizens……and the teeth, a well developed police, force to ensure Obama’s Marxism.
I suppose there are those who might claim the performances at these shallow ponds of debate will help any winner from the pack better his chances to match Obama’s talents.
But Obama’s speaking talents are tops only when his head swishes left to right, right to left, left to right, dizzily attempting to follow his teleprompter rhythms. When on his own, stutters and short tempers begin to fly. People are liable to see the hates and contempt developed in the man after his 22 years of worship in his father figure, Jeremiah ‘Goddamn America’ Wright’s church of racism in Chicago while community organizing Marxist style.
But the circus last evening is a performance of the shallow…….an American kind of a performance for other entertainment perhaps, but an event not worthy of the democratic process of selecting the best candidate for the high office of the presidency.
Last presidential election season I supported Mitt Romney. His biggest problem then as now was and is his determination to please……especially the folks around him. I think a decent man, a conservative on most matters, and probably the best debater with the quickest tongue to challenge Obama’s slippery tongue and gestures. But, even after all these moments in public, I still don’t have confidence that this man is a conservative with the devotion to lead the country to a smaller police state capability by slicing up some of the behemoth government monsters such as the Department of Education and the Environmental Protection Agency and countless anaconda type leftwing bureaucracies used to tie up the American dollar.
I hope the field is soon cut to three and that these three will not continue to play gotcha….and that these three will be Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, and Herman Cain, who will agree to take charge of the event by discussing in depth as fellow conservatives their positions on issues, and then with courtesy question each other regarding their differences with the purpose of informing the public of where they differ and why……without gotcha machine gunning.
The Republican Party should insist upon a format which will minimize the rancor among the candidates, by giving them the opportunity to speak to the public why they believe what they believe.
If they are good teachers of their subjects of importance to their American fellow citizens, the citizens will better like their brand of American life.
