Cowardly Republicans Blame The Media After Debate Fiasco

Do you remember the part of the  Republican debate where Ted Cruz Ted was asked if his opposition to the budget deal was not the kind of problem solver Americans want.

This was his response.

Let me just say something at the outset. The questions that have been asked at this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media. This is not a cage match, and you look at the questions. Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain? Ben Carson, can you do math? John Kasich, will you insult two people over here? Marco Rubio, why don’t you resign? Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen? How about talking about the substantive issues?

The contrast with the Democratic debate where every fawning question from the media was which of you is more handsome and wise.

Well of course the moderators couldn’t ask him and a good number of the other candidates that question. Shallow, I know, but one wouldn’t exactly call many of those on stage that night a pretty bunch.

Apart from that, the moderators never asked the Democratic candidates questions like that. Anderson Cooper asked questions like this:

Secretary Clinton, I want to start with you. Plenty of politicians evolve on issues, but even some Democrats believe you change your positions based on political expediency.

You were against same-sex marriage. Now you’re for it. You defended President Obama’s immigration policies. Now you say they’re too harsh. You supported his trade deal dozen of times. You even called it the “gold standard”. Now, suddenly, last week, you’re against it.

Will you say anything to get elected?


Senator Sanders. A Gallup poll says half the country would not put a socialist in the White House. You call yourself a democratic socialist. How can any kind of socialist win a general election in the United States?


The Democrats didn’t get away with softball questions. The difference however between the adults and the clowns is that the adults answered the questions whereas clown Cruz ducked the question on the debt ceiling to rant against the “liberal” media asking “gotcha” questions. His fellow jokers on the stage then followed suit when they found themselves being asked awkward questions that they would rather not answer. Were the moderators awful? I only saw a few highlights so I don’t know, but ducking legitimate questions and blaming the media for your inadequacy seems very cowardly.

Now it appears that Reince Priebus is very unhappy. Courtesy of Mediaite:

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is still pretty “pissed off” about last night’s CNBC debate, and promised Sean Hannity tonight that every single future GOP debate will be “reevaluated and reset.”

Immediately after the debate last night, Priebus came out and bashed CNBC, saying they “should be ashamed” for asking such superficial and overtly provocative questions to the candidates. He told Hannity tonight CNBC gave him assurances the debate would stick to economic issues, but it ended up being “nothing but a crap sandwich.”

My, oh my. The GOP seems to be in a whole world of hurt lately. The problem is you see, you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. None of the GOP candidates are fit for the office of the Presidency and that is the reality of the matter.

    Fox Business will moderate the next debate and pissed off Priebus will probably hand them a list of questions to be asked. If not, all candidates have orders to walk off stage in unison.

    This is so embarrassing, but I hope America wakes up that none of these GOP candidates qualify for leading our country. They are mentally impaired! It’s all about fame and money…..not the country. They hate the government but want to lead it. How stupid is that! ?

    Honest question: If the goper presidential candidates can’t handle substantive questions from the media, how will they be able to handle Putin, other world leaders, ISIL and terrorists?

    The Republicans are right. We in the media do suck.
    “But not for the reasons the candidates complained about Wednesday night. We in the media suck because we have rewarded their rampant dishonesty & buffoonery with nonstop news coverage. Which, of course, has encouraged more dishonesty & buffoonery”

    I gotta say that black and white photo of Cruz is one of the most frightening images I have ever seen.
