Shortly after 8 p.m., the meeting ended with a tentative consensus. No one had figured out how to satisfy 14 campaigns that all wanted prime time spotlights. But everyone agreed that the debates needed opening and closing statements — 30 seconds would be fine. (Several campaigns felt that CNBC had reneged on a similar idea, turning opening statements into a hectoring opening question about the candidates’ greatest weaknesses.) Everyone wanted equal speaking time, untethered to moderator prerogatives or candidates’ polling positions. And everyone wanted the candidates to choose the moderators, reducing the role of the Republican National Committee to logistics and ticketing.
They don’t want any gotcha questions either! And the new rules won’t be applied to the Fox debate.
This is a complete joke. Rinsed Penis must be feeling pretty sick about now. His posse of clowns have turned on the RNC and taken matters into their own hands. Whether the networks will agree to this is another question, but they probably will because of all the advertising revenue the debates generate.
What a shower of little cowards. Putin I’ll bet is enjoying this. Trump and Carson have taken over and the GOP continues its descent into madness.
Where will it all end?
