I clicked on R. Emmet Tyrell's article on Townhall about the idiots who contributed the questions on the 'YouTube Debate'. Mr. Tyrell focused on the morons who asked the questions. That's all well and good but the bigger issue, I think, is why do Democrats NEVER have to answer serious questions? They wag their jaws spewing whatever the polls at the moment tell them is popular with whatever demographic segment they happen to be speaking to and whatever they say, no matter how irrational, is unanalyzed and forgotten in time for the next bit of nonsense to emerge. Their true actions are never scrutinized honestly.
Here's my comment to Mr. Tyrell's article:
You Tube or any other MSM format becomes a vehicle for the Democratic candidates to avoid any serious questions. Mrs Clinton's relationship with a creep who sells lists of vulnerable senior citizens to con artists, no question there. The unbroken record of failure of government health-care systems, didnt hear that one. The Democrats opposition to a border fence, nope. The Dem's opposition to the John Doe law, didnt hear it. Any question about the use of an increasingly discredited man-made Global Warming theory to justify government control of the economy, nah- not there. They could have asked why Democrats run as conservatives and then go to Washington and vote like wacko leftists, but they didnt. Nuclear power, building refineries and drilling for oil? nope. Fortunately for the Dems, the Republicans, for some inexplicable reason, are also too befuddled to hit them with those same questions (and a whole lot more). The Repubs just stand on the cattle call stage and respectfully answer snidey questions about abortion.
The media is the problem. The idiots that are running it have no interest in serious debate. They are morons with an agenda pandering to morons with an agenda. Result-- Dennis Kucinich, Hillary Clinton and B. Hussien Obama are considered serious candidates.
