If insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result, it is official the Republican Party is insane. In fact, merely calling the Republicans insane is an understatement. How about totally freaking nuts? How about howling at the moon stupid? How about flat-lined, brain dead moronic?
What has the GOP done?
They did yet another debate with a liberal news channel, with nothing but liberal panelists.
The sound you heard was the sound of heads exploding all across the country. It is no wonder the GOP cannot get anywhere. The leadership of the Republican Party is too stupid to run a bridge club, much less a major political party.
Why do the Republican Party and the Republican candidates agree to these debates?
First, when you have George Stephanopoulos, the former communications director for Bill Clinton and long time Democratic Operative as one of the questioners, you can expect questions that are going to make the Republicans look bad.
Stephanopoulos repeatedly hit low points in the debate. He questioned Romney on what has to be the dumbest question ever asked in a debate. He asked a goofy hypothetical question about states banning contraception.
The question was so stupid that even Mitt Romney got the idea he was being baited. If that was not enough, then Stephanopoulos went into a tirade about gay marriage.
How many people watching the debate cared about gay marriage? The answer is exactly zero.
People watching the debate are interested in jobs, the economy and Iran. Gay marriage is not even registering on anyone’s radar. Why did Stephanopoulos bring it up? It is simple; it was the best gotcha he could come up with.
Stephanopoulos’ partners in crime were equally liberal Dianne Sawyer and a local host from the New Hampshire TV station.
Once again, those who have at least one or two functioning brain cells are left asking the question, why did the Republicans agree to this?
Republicans are not forced to agree to these debates but they do. The debates are great events, but as George Stephanopoulos noted at the beginning of the debate, the candidates agreed to this debate and its rules.
Why the hell are the Republicans so stupid?
Why do they let liberals run their debates?
All the Republican candidates have to do is get together and say no. These debates have been a gold mine for the networks and for the organizations that have sponsored them. The GOP can sponsor its own debates but have moderators who are conservatives.
There are many conservative media people who can be asked to act as the moderators or questioners for these debates. Why the Republicans do not insist on this is simply unbelievable.
Instead of debating the issues we need to debate, such as the economy, jobs, Afghanistan and Iran, a liberal wants to make the GOP talk about a fantasy subject like the idea a state would ban contraception.
When will the GOP grow up? When will they start understanding they can control these debates? When will they understand that the drive by media is not their friend?
We can only hope it is before they allow the media to give Barack Obama a second term.
Yea! I want Newt to win, he's the only one with guts.
I USED TO LISTEN AND RESPECT DICK MORRIS-- HE IS BIASED- HE IS TRYING TO PUT ONE SINGLE PERSON IN THE WH-- HE CALLLED PERRY A LOSER-- AND CAN'T COME BACK AT ALL-- I FIND IT WAS VERY DISRESPECTFUL
AND HE IS NOT RIGHT ALL THE TIME-- HE HAS A CERTAIN AGENDA FOR SOME REASON-- I THOUGHT HE WOULD BE MORE FAIR AND BALANCED
KARL ROVE WAS THE SAME-- THEY TEND TO FAVOR A CANDIDATE-- AND PROMOTE AND SAY HOW GREAT THEY ARE DOING
I learned a lot from the debate, spent all morning researching the voting records. I see a stream of idiot candidates that think we are idiots. The only candidate left with a decent voting record is RON Paul. The debate last night was a joke and now I remember why I refuse to watch ABC< NBC< MSNBC>, THEY are the biggest idiots.
Ron Paul was caught in another lie last nigh!
Yes, he was. But not enough of a big deal was made of it.
You mean his demonstrably false deferment slur against Newt last night? Newt handled it succinctly with Paul of having "a long history of saying things that are inaccurate and false...." retort.
I find 270 articles on it already. Here's a mild one in The Hill's Briefing Room.
The old guy is nasty, and regularly attacks in ways that are easily proven false. Just one more example!
Vern, I love you. You're a hoot. Always w/ the references at hand. Much appreciated. May God reward you for your steadfastness.
That was the highlight of the debate, and even according to your reference, Paul got the better of Newt on that one. In fact, it shut Newt up after Paul responded that he went into the service when he was called even though he was married and had children. Newt didn't. Plain and simple.
Ron Paul had no choice but to serve. Married persons were deferred unless you were a physician. Physicians were given a waiver re marriage. You did not have to request it. They were inducted. I know. I am a physician. I was married. I was drafted. I served. I had a great time.
Right, Cliff: the 3 - A classification.
I seem to recall Ron Paul getting R.O.T.C. reimbursement for his education as well.
(Perhaps he never expected to be called up? Would fit his stances.)
Do you have any references to said reimbursement? I can't seem to find it at the moment.
Thanks in advance!
If you don't want him for President, then fine. But stop making up stuff. I listened to the entire debate and did not hear any lie come out of Ron Paul's mouth. You may disagree with him and from your perception consider it untrue, but that's far different than a lie.
"stop making up stuff" ?
Follow the links provided above. And now, from the CNN Truth Squad, see:
Sorry, just another Ron Paul lie, proven false. Get out and read somewhere other than Daily Paul, or don't post ridiculous statements, Gary. They just waste our time, and demonstrate your unwillingness to face the truth.
Paul lied. Again. And got caught. Again. Let me know if there is a simpler way to present it, so that you might understand.
