Debate Commission Adviser: Obama Attendance At Moderatorís Wedding Not An Issue

Source: talkingpointsmemo.com

An adviser to the Commission on President Debates dismissed conservative claims that VP debate moderator Martha Raddatz's objectivity might be compromised because Barack Obama attended her wedding more than 20 years ago.

"We selected Martha Raddatz because she is a terrific journalist and will be a terrific moderator and we're thrilled to have her," the adviser, Peter Eyre, told USA Today.

1. Pubs really seem to want to innoculate themselves on this debate.

7. Hope you're right

but I've watched the press ignore mitts flip flops and outright lying for a year already. I don't trust any of them and I especially don't trust anyone to ignore the "working the refs" strategy.

6. Excuse me.

They are worrying about this in the VP debate but have seen nothing on the Presidential debate coming up featuring Bob Schieffer (sp). He has direct ties to the Bush family. Why does no one raise this issue? He moderated one debate between * and Kerry and mostly people defended him if I remember. This hack should be kept as far from the debates as possible IMO.

9. Jesus Christ! 20 years ago Obama attended a moderator's wedding and that will

affect the debate between Biden/Ryan? What a stretch...Is there anything else in Obama's past the GOP assholes will come up with in this cockeyed campaign.

10. Tucker the fucker turned out to be a real fucker.

Remember what a twit/jerk/nobody he was on Crossfire. Glad that got cancelled just to get rid of him. Damn, heeee's back! Guess he's been around for awhile mucking things up, but it's only recently that I've heard anything about him...thank goodness? I thought he was a long gone has been.
