When Will Republican Candidates Learn?
Dateline Sept. 27, 2016
As I watched the first Presidential Debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton I was aghast, once again, at the knuckle-headedness of the Republicans once again. It happens every presidential election cycle. Like. Clock. Work. Republican presidential campaigns always seem to think this is the year the liberal moderator will be fair, kind and helpful. Last night was a frustrating reminder that campaigns with an R after the candidates name are weak and unable to stand their ground and demand a level playing field.
Next time, when you’re working with the so called bi-partisan presidential debate committee, put your foot down and say, “I won’t attend the debate, this one or any of them unless there are fair moderators”. Fair, in this case means CONSERVATIVE. With decades of examples liberal moderators asking softball questions of democrat candidates and arguing, interrupting and fact checking Republican candidates it’s time to have a few presidential debates with conservative moderates, just to be fair.
It’s time to let each candidate stand or fall on their own ability to articulate, explain and persuade the American people — not have the moderator throw the debate toward the democrat because they can’t do it all on their own.
