Iowa Republican debate

It was earlier today, and I caught a good bit of it.

 

First of all, Alan Keyes is a nice reminder of the party trying to be 'equal', but the guy is so out of his element it's not even funny.

 

I think the strongest showing was either Fred Thompson or Mike Huckabee. There was a pretty funny exchange at one point between Thompson and Mitt, and Fred double pwned him.

 

Dems up tomorrow, but I won't be able to watch unfortunately.

I'm not sure...check around the major news sites and user-added video sites.

:blink:

 

I'm watching some clips now, really glad to see Fred contest the moderator's desire for the stupid 'show of hands'.

 

The debate format we've accepted as a society is totally ridiculous.

I already posted that.

 

What is ridiculous about it? That the candidates, in their last debate before the primary, are sick of the pointless handshows and 30 second canned responses?

 

God forbid we get some meat dished out during these things.

 

 

That's what I meant. I was replying to the video you posted, it is ridiculous that they all have to try to shout over each other and can only answer in a one word statement and the bitchy moderator wouldn't even give them 30 freakin' seconds to explain their position.

Ah, my mistake.

 

From what I've read, the moderator did an awful job with this thing. Maybe someone who has seen it could shed some light on that.

 

I've only read and now seen 'highlights' that were on PBS.

She was extremely rude even for a moderator. She doesn't know how to keep track of time. Everytime she said '30' seconds or '15' seconds, she would generally try to cut them off a few seconds short (I timed it a few times) because she was so worried they would go over the debate limit. I felt like she was like a teacher in class and they were giving her oral speeches for grades.

 

And she was so f***ing monotone and annoying.

I've said it before, but Mitt Romney=John Kerry.

Please expand.

They are both rich, stiff, career politicians. At least Romney is a more interesting speaker. They also have both changed their positions many times on issues.

 

After watching the clips from the debate, I really thought that Fred Thompson needed a nap, and Alan Keyes needed to get back in his time machine and go away.
