Debate Highlights

Last night was the CNN/YouTube debate for the GOP, and unfortunately, I missed it. From everything I've read so far, I'm glad I did. It seems like picking out the various crowd plants CNN used would be more fun.

For everyone else who missed it, John Hawkins at Right Wing News compiled a highlights video, so you can watch the best of the debate without suffering through the entire thing.

Enjoy:

Peter F.:

YouTube is an embarrassing and childish platform for BOTH parties, and it demeans the importance of the office the candidates are trying to win.

And Anderson Cooper is a feckless, self-important, pseudo-intellectual crapweasel who shouldn't even be allowed to moderate a debate between first graders.

"So, a good night for for the lowest denominator, a bad night for the GOP. America got to see a vaguely threatening parade of gun fetishists, flat worlders, Mars Explorers, Confederate flag lovers and zombie-eyed-Bible-wavers as well as various one issue activists hammering their pet cause..."

Not my words but how could it have been described any better? I giggled, laughed, guffawed,and generally felt really sad for the (wing)nuts but happy for the rest of the country.

LoveAmerica Immigrant:

JFo is happy again about how natural the liberal left lies/deceives. Dishonesty is second nature to the liberal left and the JFO moonbats are just proud that dishonesty comes so easily to the left.

I am not surprised by all the dem plants at the debate. I am simply surprised by how brazen they are willing to lie about it. Maybe that 's why JFO moonbats are so happy.

LOL, this is hilarious coming from a "fire doesn't melt steel" crowd.

I know it's a running joke to think lefties wear tinfoil hats to prevent right wing thought control rays, but from trolling through the lefty blogs I'm not so sure it's just a joke anymore.

JFO never felt happy in his life. Liberals are incapable of that feeling. At least republican candidates are not afraid to show up at a venue that may not be friendly. ww

True enough but certainly better than that Olberfool.

JFO - at least you could have done is give attribution, and or a link, to the owner of the words you copied. (why do I have a feeling you don't know and cut and pasted it from someone who didn't note the author)

JP2;

Hey Cassy - any correction yet to your debunked Fort attack story?

Have you asked for a correction and or retraction from Fox News, Brietbart, AFP, Wash Times, Google News and various other outlets that reported the apparent bogus story?

Or are you just being the upholder of truth and honestly only st Wizbang. Put another way... being a royal pain in the ass who posts more off, than on topic comments.

Baggi:

For those who didn't watch the debate last night, those weren't all the highlights. Those were apparantly the highlights of a Tom Tancredo fan.

There was lot's of other highlights but apparantly they are ignored if you're not behind one of the top two.

If those were the highlights? what were the lowlights? Anderson and JFO pickin their noses together and singing kumbaya to all those brave public serpents in the congress?

LaMedusa:

I didn't watch the debate, myself. After watching this clip, however, I really don't think these guys came off as bad as I expected with all the negative hype. The formula was pretty obvious, though.

The biggest problem was the platform with which the candidates were presented. The debate itself resembled a reality/talk show where the guests are encouraged to go at it (minus the fist fight) to get ratings. Cheer the good guys, boo the bad guys...Jeez! How tedious! Seriously, when is the real debate scheduled?

SPQR:

It has become more clear that CNN is rigging the debates with Democrat operatives, they've lost any deniability now that its been observed that they are recycling questioners from Democratic debates with the Strauss question. CNN is not an honest debate broker, which is amusing given the juvenile ravings about Fox News by the Dem shills.

Glenn Reynolds said it best: "If Fox hosted a Democratic debate and many of the most pointed questions turned out to come from Republican activists, but Fox didn't disclose that, do you think it would pass unremarked?"

Well Marc, I knew that a nitwit like you would make an issue of the quote.

I wish I could take credit for the quote but I can't. See, it came from a real lunatic moonbat, oh wait, no, it came from:

That's a hoot - from the Weekly Standard blog! Bloody Bill Kristol's own!!

LoveAmerica Immigrant:

Again, the JFO moonbats are just acting like happy rats in its natural environment of the liberal sew*ge. No wonder they are so happy in the sewage of CNN dishonesty, which was the very fist paragraph of JFO 's own source.

Here is the explanation from Rush of the dishonesty of CNN. I wouldn't bother to pick out the correct paragraph. I would leave it as a simple exercise unless the moonbats cannot hide their 2nd nature of lying.

Apollo, Seattle/USA:

At least he didn't ask if we would be better off with Bill Clinton back in the white house like Chris Matthews did. What did the D's get asked? diamonds or pearls?

As for the debate, Huckabee wanted to give scholarships to illegal aliens? How can anyone seriously consider him presidential material? He doesn't understand that the widow's mite is sacred. He is a big-government Christian Progressive. Big programs, no results.

He needs to go back to saving souls...or taking money from old ladies on TV.

I met the Huckster last week and spoke with him for quite awhile. He is a nice, funny guy, but he is not presidential...unless you like your presidents to take gifts from donors (illegal activity)...we already had an Arkansas good old boy as president. We can not afford this one.

The press love Huckabee because they know that only Mitt or Rudy can beat Hillary.

Here in Washington State, we nominated a candidate for governor that was like him, and we got slaughtered. It will happen if he gets nominated, and we can not afford to lose more house/senate seats AND the White House.

Mitt or Rudy. Not the Huckster.
