The sound you kept hearing last night was the continuous face palm. You know, people slapping their foreheads after seeing something so unbelievably stupid.
What was going on last night that made it the night of the living face palm?
It was the ABC/Yahoo Republican debate.
No, it was not the Republican candidates, not even Ron Paul that made people slap their foreheads out of sheer disbelief. It was the Republican Party.
Can someone please explain why in the hell the Republican Party agrees to these debates?
The debates are great. There is nothing wrong with debates. Why did the GOP agree to debates where the moderators are flat out liberals? The hosts were notoriously left wing Diane Sawyer and former Clinton Press Secretary and operative George Stephanopoulos.
The moderators were obviously not only going after Gingrich but were trying to make Romney look good. There were no big surprises. The moderators wanted to make Gingrich have a meltdown and that was not going to happen.
The question with all of these debates is why the GOP lets liberal groups set the rules and had liberal journalists to ask the questions.
Earth to the RNC. These liberals are not our friends. Does anyone doubt that Stephanopoulos and Sawyer want to see a second Obama term? Does anyone doubt they want to see the weakest and most liberal Republican running as the nominee?
These debates have been a gold mine not only for the GOP but for the channels that have broadcast it. The GOP does not simply have to walk up and take what ever deal is offered.
Why doesn’t the GOP have a debate where the moderators are Joseph Farah from WND and Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Tom Tancredo?
We have had GOP debates with exclusively liberal hosts and others with some liberal and a couple of at least centrist hosts. The GOP is allegedly the party of conservatives, so why isn’t the GOP demanding that it have a veto on the network choice of hosts?
There were a lot of questions that should have been asked last night but they were not going to come from liberal hosts.
One of the questions I would like to have heard was the GOP candidates talking about the Fast and Furious scandal and Attorney General Eric Holder committing perjury in front of a Congressional Committee. I would like to have heard a question about the growing scandal that is the follow up to Fast and Furious where the Department of Justice was laundering money for Mexican drug cartels.
How about a few questions about John Corzine and the collapse of MF Global? When Enron collapsed, the left tried to paint Enron as being a corporation that was in bed with the Republican Party. There is silence on MF Global. I would like to have heard what the GOP candidates have to say about that.
How about some questions about defense? Our navy is now smaller than it was during World War I. The army and the air force are being reduced to levels that will make a serious national defense almost impossible. Why not some questions about that?
The answer is all the GOP wanted to do was give us a night of non-stop face palms.
When is the GOP going to get serious? When is the GOP going to realize they do not have to appease these liberal journalists?
When is the GOP going to act like it wants to win an election?
It is like the GOP "RINOS" in Washington have a death wish. Obama's people will not have anything new to throw at the eventual GOP candidate because all the dirty linen has already been thrown at each other in the debates. It is like someone placing a bunch of cats in a bag and letting them fight it out. WISE UP GOP AND MORE TO THE POINT, SHUT UP!
Couldn't have said it better?
You are right Judson.....I am still trying to figure it out...and most of them have backed out of the Trump Debate....may even be called off.....do you see a pattern here...??????
We TPs do not want a rino, now we have 2....?????? these so called debates are childish, among other things...a waste of time for all....and why do they keep setting themselves up for this stupidity....????
The Republican Party has been given the nickname THE STUPID PARTY for a reason, why else would Amy Stephens be the House Majority Leader in Colorado. Do not send this party one red cent in donations, this is the best way to make sure RINO REPUBLICANS are voted out of office.

I think we know what happens when we let the Communist pick your president .
That's an easy one. There is little difference between GOP and Dems who are progressive.
Even "progressive agents" such as Sawyer and George cannot prevent revelation! Every time liberals ask their biased questions, the truth of that bias is revealed. Most enlightened Americans understand that these mainstream media divas have abandoned principles of journalism. Instead of demonstrating bias-free, fact-filled reports and the asking of like-minded questions that invoke legitimate answers, these "show-biz wannabes" persist in conducting "dog and pony" shows, slanted very decidedly toward The Left. Real journalism passed with Cronkite, Huntley and Brinkley, with the exception of Chris Wallace! Their biases betray them and not the candidates!
We, The People must keep a close watch on the Congressional candidates and campaigns. That is where the REAL battle will be fought!
The Donald Trump debate is coming next month. That will be the closest we'll get to a proper and balanced debate, although at least two candidates are not attending.
Islamo terrorists and terrorist states, resurgent Soviet state, Sino-Korean totalitarianism, worldwide drug cartels, Demo-rats, the U.N. and internationalists of all stripes in the U.S., Hollywood propaganda, Advertising and print media social engineering, Academia's Marxist elitism, and not last nor least the Educational establishment represented by the NEA and the Dept of Ed - now add Rinos to the top of the enemy list that we have to battle to preserve our American Constitution, the second greatest gift God has given us.
