Last Nights Debate in New Hampshire

Debate in New Hampshire tonight was a study in how not to put on a debate. The way the debate was structured was very disjointed, with questions bouncing all over the place, and only a few candidates getting to respond to any one question. That makes it very difficult to differentiate between the candidates. CNN’s John King, from the moment he asked a question, was often muttering in the background to try and get the candidate to stop talking! It was incredibly annoying.


Cain/Romney/Gingrich on muslims in government

Wild Thing's comment.......

The candidates need to continue to hammer away at obama and take on a take no prisoner attitude. This is the survival of our beloved country and there is no time to waste. obama is a steam roller of destruction.

0bama is pure evil and our very lives depend on his ouster.

The moderator was John King and he was beyond horrible, totally impatient and rushed for quick replies, giving more time to the person asking the question then those answering . Also OMG he kept doing a low level grunt that his mic was picking up and he would do it while the candidates were trying to answer his questions. John King’s constant background interruptions were ridiculous as were his stupid choice questions. Unbelievable! Audience bio’s time and stupid questions time, but rush the candidates and grunt into your mike througout their answer.

If the GOP can grow some balls, and continue to make ads using Obama’s words against himself, we might have a chance.But again it depends who the candidate is as well.

I wasn't impressed with any of them. I think Ron Paul got the booby prize for the man most likely to have the charisma of a Carrot, None of them exhibited any energy, to generate enthusiasm. Overall boring. Offering the public again, nothing but watered down candidates. With 300 million people in this country this is the best we can come up with for our leaders. There's something wrong here.

I very much like citizens and not just the press being able to ask good questions directly to the candidates, but we needn't the citizens' biography; they aren't running for high office.

Governor Ronald Reagan's 11th commandment from 1966, "Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican" was well followed last night as it should continue to be; yes, even if he or she is a Rino, hard gulp -especially for me.

The incumbent President and his deplorable record must remain the issue day in and day out without rest to ensure success. This is important and nothing should detract from that.

Best take away and the best line from the evening,

"Rights should not come as a group but as an individual".

Best performance last night in New Hampshire:

One solid, rock steady Herman Cain.

(Oh, and the stage is not fully set. Rick Perry of Texas is coming soon, and later next Summer in Tampa, Florida with Marco Rubio for the win.)

I like Herman Cain. He had a good answer concerning Muslims and Shari Law. Romney's response was a typical politicians response.

Mark, I agree and LOL love how you described Ron Paul. hahaha

Carlos, I agree so much. Those citizens are not running for office and way too much time was spent telling us who they were.

I agree too about the stage not being fully set yet. Perry is supposed to make an announcement soon.

Bob, he is a good man and he is doing better and better each interview and in the debates. I also liked the way he corrected the jerk moderator John King when he tried to change his wording around.

mark, is absolutely correct ! with all current problems in our economy,millions of unemployed workers,american families losing their life savings as well as their homes! a middle east foreign policy disaster, as well as constitutional rights of american citizens being abused,queen janet's tsa perv's masquerading as security guards and of course i could continue on thru the night , you would have thought there would be some energy, some life,something to rally about but as mark correctly pointed out, none of them exhibited any energy ! i sure hope carlos is right about the stage not being set, because so far this is one performance that hasn't impressed me one bit
