Debate Moderator

Why not demand a Rush Limbaugh or a Mark Levin to ask some debate questions at the Democrat debate with Hillary and Bernie. This is the essence of what we are witnessing with the Republican debate. These Democrat operatives get their marching orders from the White House and try to destroy every conservative.

Obama Will Claim Romney Will Take Us to War in Tonight’s Debate

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Aaron Goldstein on 10.22.12 @ 12:53PM Quin suggests that Mitt Romney should use the word peace “about 15 or 20 times” in tonight’s debate with President Obama. That advice might very well help Romney because I predict that a desperate Obama will claim that Romney will take us […]

Romney’s Trump Card for the Foreign Policy Debate

Mitt Romney has a chance to upstage Barack Obama at Monday’s upcoming foreign policy debate and use the strongest hand he has against Obama.  And it has nothing to do with Libya. Polls after their second debate highlight a source of strength for Mitt Romney that has consistently attracted likely voters to his candidacy.  While […]

BFD: Biden’s Failed Debate

This administration does not lend itself well to the split screen and the VP might very well need psychiatric care.  His smile was frightening.  For most of the night Joe Biden looked like the Joker — Nicholson not Ledger. After 3 ½ years of Biden’s playing the fool, it is hard to remember he was […]

Old Interview Sheds New Light on Obama’s Debate Flop

In February 2001, Julieanna Richardson, as part of an oral history on black Americans called “History Makers,” interviewed Barack Obama at length.  Although the 10,000-plus-word interview offers no Eureka moments, it does help demystify Obama’s debate failure and deepens the doubt that he uniquely authored his own memoir, Dreams from My Father.  Kudos to attorney […]

If the Birther Issue Comes Up in Debate

“No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate,” said Mitt Romney at a rally last week in a Detroit suburb.  “They know this is the place that we were born and raised.” This remark created a major stir on the left, a minor stir in the media, and a petit frisson on the […]

Santorum’s Disastrous Debate

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Ross Kaminsky on 2.23.12 @ 12:06AM I’m sorry to disagree with my friend, and sincere Rick Santorum supporter, Quin Hillyer, who suggests that Wednesday’s Republican debate was “no game changer.” Having heard a little more than an hour of the Republican debate on Wednesday evening, my gut […]

How to Win the Marriage Debate

The big news on the culture-war front is a federal court’s striking down of Proposition 8, California’s constitutional amendment protecting marriage.  In a two-to-one ruling, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit wrote, “The people may not employ the initiative power to single out a disfavored group for unequal treatment and strip […]
