Skip to comments.GOP:"We Can't Do Anything About Biased Moderators." Bull! (Action Alert)
Posted on 08/15/2012 7:21:06 AM PDT by jmstein7
Yesterday, after hundreds of irate conservatives called to complain about the extremely leftist panel of presidential debate moderators, the GOP began telling callers that there was nothing they could do about it and that they should contact the "non-partisan" commission on Presidential debates. This is outrageous! Of course they can do something about it - they can man-up and say "no!"
To add insult to injury, instead of standing up for their conservative constituents, the GOP blasted the sources of outrage on Free Republic and Twitter - they have decided to shoot the messenger.
First, I strongly urge anyone who cares about freedom, fairness, and reforming the GOP (getting the GOP-e OUT), to call in to the following shows and shine the light on the cockroaches at the RNC who are supposed to be supporting us, not ignoring and attacking us:
Rush Limbaugh: 1-800-282-2882
Sean Hannity: 1-800-941-SEAN
Mark Levin: 1-877-381-3811
Tip: first call in about an hour before the show starts. If enough people call, at least one will get through and on the air.
This is an important issue!!! Let's review:
A couple of days ago the moderators for the Presidential and the VP debates were announced. As expected, its an All-Star team of exceptionally Liberal and horrifically biased journalists:HT to Robbie Cooper
First presidential debate:Why Republicans continue to agree to having these debates moderated by biased Liberals. We should either refuse, or insist upon our own selected moderators for half of the debates.
Jim Lehrer, Executive Editor of the PBS NewsHour
Wednesday, October 3, University of Denver, Denver, CO
Vice presidential debate:
Martha Raddatz, Senior Foreign Affairs Correspondent, ABC News
Thursday, October 11, Centre College, Danville, KY
Second presidential debate (town meeting):

Tuesday, October 16, Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY
Third presidential debate:

About the only way to get any more biased would be to have Soledad OBrien (complete with her Obama bumper sticker plastered to her forehead and clutching a copy of the latest Democrat talking points from Talking Points Memo).
Yet despite having their all-star biased stacked team, the Democrats are still insisting that some questions be off limits:
Some Democratic lawmakers want to make sure that one question does not get asked at the upcoming first presidential debate about Simpson-Bowles.Yes by all means please dont ask about the only bi-partisan debt-reduction solution that exists.
Three Democratic House members objected Tuesday to a request by four senators that President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney be asked which of the commissions proposals to address the debt they support. The Democrats said such a question would force candidates to choose solutions from one menu of options.
You want to know the absolute best indicator that a question should be asked during the debate? If one party or the other insist that it should be barred.
Of course the real reason Dems dont the question asked of Prez Barky is hell have to explain how and why he wasted millions on a commission he didnt want and to which he paid no attention.
I just ‘replied’ again to the GOP link above (after requesting a change of moderators yesterday). I said, “OK, you don’t want to try to change the biased “moderators”, no one in this family will watch any of the debates”. I figure the only people in the audiences now will be liberals.
Nobody is required to show up at a debate. What’s the “commission” going to do if they only have one guy on stage? Have him debate himself??
Ever since Bernard Shaw sank Dukakis with a single cheeky question they have learned to keep very tight control over this.
The e-GOP are fine with having an entirely liberal audience. They don’t want any conservative involvement in the process at all, just “shut up and vote for us”.
But each and every RINO that the Tea Party is able to force out is one less backer of the Republican leadership and their Beltway Bandits. Only by eroding them will conservatives *ever* get control of the leadership.
Semper BS !!!!!
They would call him out, in many different ways, wrong answer. If we cannot change moderators, MR must be ready, collected, calm, confident, with his battle armour on. He cannot fall into this trap, knowledge strength and the Good Lord can keep him in a position of superiority. Do the candidates each approve the questions? Or does just the worst president ever get a heads up?
All these things shake out in negotiations between the Obama and Romney teams. Perhaps Romney got 3 debates instead of 2, but had to lose on the moderators choice.
I wrote to the League of Women’s Voters.
I sent an email to the Romney Ryan RNC.
I called the RNC and left a message to challenge the lib moderators and register my disgust that they would accept this lineup.
Waking up everyday to get slapped around is getting tiresome.
the RNC is now telling people who call that the moderators were chosen by a NON partisan panel
How stupid do they think we are
they gave this Web site
Ok so someone chose them That shouldn’t mean the RNC does NOTHING
First off...they should insist on real debates.
Bump for action at work
Ryan is not an "expert" on foreign affairs.
Biden was a long time on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
You know, you just know, that Raddatz will use her foreign knowledge to trip Ryan up. Like asking "who is the Prime Minister of Slobbovia?"
Something Biden will know but Ryan won't.
when you go to the site the RNC gave me
you get a list of people that i assume are the ones who selected the moderators.
here is the list
can someone tell who is leftists?
Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr.
Michael D. McCurry
Gerald R. Ford
William J. Clinton
Paul G. Kirk, Jr.
Board of Directors
John C. Danforth
Reverend John I. Jenkins
Newton N. Minow
Richard D. Parsons
Alan K. Simpson
Janet H. Brown
if the RNC will do nothing then we should
I just called and got some nonsense about a no partisan panel selecting the moderators.
I will not throw my vote away again. If this is as good as it gets when they need my vote.....
