Obama and Romney Campaigns Share Concerns about Moderator in Today’s Debate

Most debates are a disaster with the bias of the moderators controlling how they will be handled. Two weeks ago we saw a refreshing scene when Jim Lehrer actually stayed out of doing much influencing and simply trying to facilitate a discussion between the candidates so that America could see where both men stood on the issues. It was probably the most effective presidential debate we've seen in many election campaign cycles. Candy Crowley, the moderator for today's debate, has made it clear in interviews that she sees her role as one that expands the audience questions and directs the discussion at her own whim. While the campaigns have expressed concern over this, the Commission on Presidential Debates has said they would discuss those concerns with Crowley, something they have not confirmed they've done.

The European Union's Undeserved Peace Prize

The Norwegian Nobel Committee decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2012 to the European Union (EU). Although conceding in its press release that “the EU is currently undergoing grave economic difficulties and considerable social unrest,” the Norwegian Nobel Committee rationalized its choice by claiming that it "wishes to focus on what it sees as the EU’s most important result: the successful struggle for peace and reconciliation and for democracy and human rights." The EU selection follows the path of another brainless choice for the Nobel Peace Prize - Barack Obama in 2009 - when he had not done a thing except give lofty speeches and apologia for the United States’ role in the world.

Slate of Celebrities Switch from Obama to Romney

Adding to the fresh energy that the campaign of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney has reaped from the first 2012 presidential debate, an unlikely group of celebrities have publicly embraced the idea of a potential President Romney inauguration. Piers Morgan, the consistently left-of-center CNN host wrote a column published by the UK Daily Mail in which he begrudgingly conceded that “Mitt Romney might just save America.” Morgan took great pains to make the case that the former Massachusetts governor changed political positions, writing that “it’s hard to even recognize the new Mitt from the one who was a successful and popular Governor of Massachusetts.” [more...]

Biden the Bully

Joe Biden is a man that few employers would hire. The reason was on display last Tuesday night as his response to any of Paul Ryan’s comments was blatant disrespect. Like Andy Stern and the SEIU’s persuasion of power, Biden’s tactics against Ryan were typical attempts to bully the target until it is totally discredited in the public’s eye and succumbs. This is what Romney can expect to face down the stretch of the 2012 Presidential campaign. As detailed in The Devil at Our Doorstep, Romney can expect the tactics of vicious corporate campaigns employed by Big Labor against unsuspecting businesses, to be used in the last few weeks to eviscerate Romney during the debates and on the campaign stump. Romney had better be ready and remain on the offensive tonight to counter the inevitable bullying. [more...]
