Improving the Presidential Debates

“Mr. President, do you ever get muddled and take Joe for a walk in the Rose Garden and Bo to cabinet meetings?”

“Governor, is it true you wanted ‘You’re so Bain’ for your campaign song?”

These probing questions will make the next presidential debate more vivacious. More questions in this week's Times and Democrat.

  1. I thought it was HIGHLY inappropriate for Biden to be laughing when Ryan was trying to talk serious about important issues and death and dying.

  2. Thank you Chatty Crone I couldn't agree with you more! His smug little smile just disgusted me and I was very impressed with Ryan for staying composed.

  3. Instead of watching the presidential debate last night I watched the live stream video of the memorial service for Jessica Ridgeway. She is the Colorado girl who disappeared last week and was found murdered. Her family are a very unique bunch of folks and I am glad I chose that over politics. I do my homework on political candidates but considering the state of the world and particularly the USA none of these people give a hoot about any of us! Unless of course you are one of the lucky middle class folks making $250,000.00 a year! I do know Romney doesn't know any common folks. If we were all making that kind of money we would have no hungry or poverty in the USA. They all truly disgust me.

  4. I think JDaniel would have gotten a time out if he talked to people that way.

  5. I am trying to avoid it as much as I can. The vitriol this time around is a little too much for me...

  6. Biden really turned me off in the VP debate. Rude is rude, regardless of what side you come down on.

  9. I think most people already know how they're voting when they watch these debates. The debates aren't really debates anymore. Whatever happened to the League of Women Voters running them? I believe the two political parties didn't like the way they ran them so they set up their own group and then get together and have a pre-debate to determine how they'll be run. I'd like to see the debates go back to the Nixon Kennedy format.

  10. it definitely gets pretty intense :O I get so frustrated whenever I watch things like that, because it's so obvious that they're not telling the whole story.

  11. I got a good chuckle here. I have long since decided but do find myself watching.

  12. Boy. They were vivacious all right.

    My poor husband is used to me disappearing when he watches news or anything political.

    I decided to watch all three debates this year.

    I think he likes it better when I don't.

    I really dislike this format. It reminds me of the nasty kids in school who would one up each other until I felt sick to my stomach.

    Sigh.

    Debate, schebate!

    Thanks for stirring up such a fun hornet's nest of comments, too!

    A+++++

  13. Most middle class people I know make a lot less than $250K.

    It's rhetorical horse pucky as usual.

    Our candidates care a great deal about us...as long as we pay our taxes. Find out what happens if we don't.
