171. Done, my first contribution, 1,338,870 people donating so far,
nothing elitist about that.

Calling people who feel bitter (i.e. who feel hurt) about some
of the things that have happened in our country "elitist"
is just stupid. It is the elite who are the least likely to
feel bitter. Acknowledging that people have been hurt in our
country is not "elitist"; it is realistic. We need to face it,
and strive to make our country the greatest it can be.
That is real patriotism.

187. Here's the letter I sent:
A PERFECT example of how prepared and relevant your 'debate' was:

When you asked Obama about his connection to a '60's radical,

When Obama was 8 years old.

Was this Murrow quality work???

I know high schoolers who could have done better research.

You should all be ashamed.

Shameful, disgraceful, horrible job of "moderating" by Gibson and Stephanopoulos. ABC should fire these bozos immediately.

Low marks for Shillary as well - shameless pandering and slandering. I've lost all respect for her.

279. Yep, they asked Hillary stupid questions too.
The first 50 minutes were horse-race crap; anything of substance had to be generated by the candidates themselves, because the questions were of the "did you see the note so-and-so passed in class?" variety.

202. Excellent point - agreed
Most of the initial coverage of the debate is a lot of outrage over how it was conducted, included Ed Rendell. While I can understand while Hillary supporters might feel a certain amount of glee (and I'm not knocking you for it) I don't think this has done your candidate any favors either. With Obama already capitalizing on some sympathy following the whole "bitter" debacle, the last thing she needs is people feeling even more sympathy. If the pathetic media comes off being more easily recognized for the idiots that they are, then perhaps we can safely say that WE'VE won.

I say that in no small part because my dearly beloved was a Girl Scout with 30 merit badges. And she was insulted by George and Gibson's tag-team "performance". Both did their best "Hannity and Hume" impressions. :mad:

228. Thanks. My comment to ABC...
Kindly bring back the League of Women Voters to moderate the debates among presidential candidates. They always did a great job, were impartial, intelligent, and were respected.

Our nation is in crisis, and you, the mainstream media, ought to hang your heads in shame for trivializing the issues surrounding the election of the next person to sit in the White House.

Last night's debate was a disgrace to the ABC news organization and to the millions of voters of this country. We are not fooled by your infotainment tactics. With the state that this nation is in, the moderators of last night's debate chose to ask tabloid-worthy questions, as opposed to questions relating directly to the issues concerning most Americans. Shameful, Charlie should issue a public apology on the evening news for behaving in such an asinine manner, George, who I have had much respect for and view his Sunday morning program each week should throw in the towel. Disgusting, disgusting display. You have lost a viewer. No reply necessary, carry on with your hit pieces. This debacle is right up there with Pathway to 9-11.

Another idea, you could just report the news, oh, that wouldn't work either, that requires actual reporting, research, digging up facts. ABC, apparently, is only concerned with echoes from the echo chamber.

Good riddance.

They are merely calling Obama out on the huge drop in Pin sales when he demonstrates that he can campaign without one!

Think of the Children in Haiti that make those pins!

No, don't be mad at ABC, as they have done a great service tonight, by demonstrating that Corporations are idiots.

It makes it much easier for me to never want to spend money in Disney establishments ever again.

Sorry Walt, but your dream is finished now. We are going to vote with our wallets, and I'd rather spend that $80.00 Adult ticket to Wally World on something more important, and that would be the Obama08 Campaign

I can't wait to see what happens when 113 buck oil bites Orlando in the ass.

This is softballing of the highest order in Hil's direction. What a sham and a disgrace. I have watched hundreds upon hundreds of debates, and this is by far the sorriest excuse for a "debate" I've ever seen. She's acting like a repub, while he is actually trying to TALK ABOUT ISSUES and DEBATE THEM. Go figure!

She's toast. She won't move anyone in her direction after this.

Edited on Wed Apr-16-08 08:49 PM by Spiffarino
There are no words to describe how painful it was to watch your tabloid inquisition of the remaining Democratic candidates.

One question (OK, three): Are you going to ask John McCain why he has opposed the Webb Bill in the Senate that will provide better health care for veterans? Are you going to ask him why he continues to support tax cuts for the big oil companies at a time when they are making the greatest profits in the history of the world? Will you ask him why he says he's not for sale, while at the same time he surrounds himself with K Street lobbyists?


Of course you won't. Your agenda is clear.

It was about as subtle as an Iron Maiden concert. Really, could they make their bias any more obvious?

405. There has been a lot of shit in both directions. A liberal would be more understanding.
those that are slinging shit are not true Democrats. They want to disrupt the Democratic party and then McBush to win in Nov.

It's one thing to compare stands on issues, it is quite another to sling shit. And if you dare say that "they started it" shame on you.

I am curious why you called me son? I take no offense if intended. But you ain't my dad and probably not my elder.

206. Oh, Really BlackVelvet04?
Got news for you.

This entire discussion thread would not exist, if Hillary was such the strong candidate that you seem to think she is. Considering how she was, for all intents and purposes, coronated as the presumptive Dem nominee before the primaries even started, even having a front-loaded primary season for the purposes of making her coronation official, not to mention the formidable political machine backing her, meant that she had all the advantages going into the primary season. She likely did not expect to have to FIGHT for the nomination this deep into the primary season, hence her $5 million loan to her campaign from her personal funds soon after Super Tuesday, and the resorting to negative campaigning in recent weeks. This was her race to lose, and she's losing it.

The CIA, Drugs, and Wall Street
http://www.fromthewilderness.com/free/economy/dontblink...

ABC squelched Peter Jenning's investigation of the Nugan Hand Bank, tied to the CIA's drug running and money laundering, since Wm Casey was Cap Cities general counsel. Thereafter ABC was known as The CIA's Network.

Also, aren't these the clowns John Edwards refused to talk to?? Shame on everyone!!

355. I've switched from Edwards to Obama...it's about time you do too
Gore would have given us LIEBERMAN as his VP, and would have been whacked just to get him in there. Watch McCain do likewise and put that dimwit as his running mate as some kind of 'see, I'm an accomodating guy' Bush-like faux gesture of conciliation.

Obama's best chance is with Edwards as his VP, though.

Wed Apr 16, 2008 at 06:23:45 PM PDT
Well folks, you've witnessed it. I can't describe it any better than what you've already seen. I'm not sure what their motivation is. I really don't care. I've never seen anything quite like it in my life and I hope I never have to see it again.

My opinions on this are largely irrelevant. What matters to this network is money, and that is where we need to go. Starting tomorrow, my spare time, meager as it is, will be dedicated to revealing the advertisers of this network, for the purpose of organized boycotts.

I don't know what I can actually call that sad parody tonight.

But if that is what you think is a debate, your producer must not have seen
many actual debates.

You see, actual debates, such as the classic Lincoln Douglas debates, addressed issues.
Your stinking pile of airtime, not so much.

Edited on Thu Apr-17-08 06:48 AM by ExPatLeftist
This farce was in no way similar to an actual debate. But then, most recent political "debates" have nothing to do with debating. Anyone that has studied debate even at the high school level knows that and would never call this a "real debate". You are guilty of what you attempt to hypocritically accuse the Obama supporters of - judging the "debate" based on favoritism rather than structure and content.

You are so gleeful that Obama was attacked that you actually praise this steaming pile of flop as a "real debate". And then could think of nothing else to say, so you added some "HA HA HA" playground BS.

No matter which candidate one supports, we deserve better than this. Gotcha politics is a waste of time and is tearing the party and nation apart. When do we get to the issues? When do the soundbites end and actual discussion begin?

Never, as long as people like you are cheering on this BS, just so long as you determine that it favours your candidate...

The end does not justify the means, and keeping politics in the gutter helps no one and can easily backfire. Hillary is learning that the hard way. I hope that you will learn it as well some day.

America gains nothing through gotcha haymaking. I'd like to hear about the actual issues and plans. If you want to hear about who doesn't wear a flag pin or who misspoke and when, then they should have alternate "debates" for people like you on Nickelodeon. It seems the majority of us here want an actual REAL debate, not the bizzarro-world "real" debate that you think you saw. And that has nothing to do with what candidate we support, it has to do with wanting to hear about the actual issues and not be marketed to as idiotic hyperactive soundbite-mongering children. At least ABC is lucky in one thing - they seem to have found a perfect target market for that demographic in YOU.

I am embarrassed for you.

184. Answer to the Flag question:
Obama should have offered to wear the flag lapel pin on the condition that no one is offended by the fact that it is worn "union down". (Obama doesn't do this, just a suggestion. It would be a bold, yet resounding move.

Quote: "The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property." United States Code, Title 4, Chapter 1 - The Flag

I only saw clips of the debate...glad I missed it now. The little I did see leads me to believe they should have scheduled it on April 1st, since it was obviously a joke. ABC is no longer taking comments, via internet, due to all of the negative feedback. Good job DU!!!

201. For those about to boycott ABC...
...I salute you.

BUT, if you want the boycott to be EFFECTIVE, then it will require much more than simply not watching ABC programming. Many of the ADVERTISERS who buy airtime on ABC also buy time on other networks you may watch, so the key is to contact ABC's advertisers and tell them you will not be buying their products as long as they financially support the type of crap that passes for "political discourse" which just polluted our airwaves.

Get ABC where they live - right in their P&L statement. That's how you get their attention.

and NO ONE discusses it anymore except on the John Edwards forum.

Jeez, the entire way Edwards dropped out was so Rovian it wasn't funny but instead of remembering how things really work with the corporate media whores, people around here are whining & crying about a debate that their own candidate screwed up in the first place! :wtf:


Doesn't anyone on this thread get that the questions that were asked of Obama are the EXACT questions the rethuglicans are going to scream and badger Obama about IF he gets the nom?

Obama better figure out how to handle it if he really wants to win.

Meanwhile...Hillary was as cool as a cucumber under their fire and that impressed me even though I'm not for her either.

Threads about who to call to complain, in which ways he was treated unfairly, etc.

You must have been absent those days.

As for the distraction game... I don't give a shit if that's what the whore press does. Obama is standing up to them and refusing to play. It's why he's WINNING.

Hillary is the status quo, that's why she's fine with it.

just because it's been done in the past, does not make it right or proper going forward.

226. I Haven't Watched ABC since...
Stacy Keibler got screwed over on "Dancing With The Stars." While I'm sure the debate was likely just as biased, does anyone have a link to the debate so that one may judge for one's self?

227. ABC: Who Won the Democratic Debate
Edited on Thu Apr-17-08 04:22 AM by Alii
I voted here at that survey http://www.abcnews.go.com/Politics/DemocraticDebate/pop... . It was overwhelmingly in favor of Barack Obama. I suspect that many of the votes were actually in protest. How could he have won the debate, there was no debate.

Vile slime oozing out the sewer of tabloid journalism. Can't drum up all the appropriate words necessary to describe the disgust. Still counting to ten...for hours.

I'm going out on a limb and predict that Obama's Gallup Poll rankings will rise even higher. Maybe even a couple of points in PA.

Obama needs to hire Rachel Maddow as an advisor...she's a keeper.

The audience turned on the moderators at the end of the debate. Has this happened in the other debates? Think not! Now, assuming that one had even a modicum of smarts don't you think that this is indicative of a debate that was not a debate? It was a symbolic lynching. Where was the debate? In Hillary country you say? And, the crowd turns on the moderators?

Get a calculator, Obama IS the democratic candidate. ABC is just attempting to prolong the agony.

I'm sure the whole fiasco was designed to make our candidates look as bad as possible. The Right is going down, and it's the American media's job to let them down as slowly as possible, hurting the Dems as much as possible along the way. That would be the strategy.

Add your comments as well

The "Screw Em" mentality of the Clintons (covered on Huffingtonpost.com front page today) has clearly rubbed off to these disgraceful ABC employees. I'll never need to watch an ABC News program again unless there is a public company appology for the shameful debate tactics last night on the part of Charles and George.

Remember the Monica affair when the media was dumping 24/7 on Bill Clinton? Remember what happened? His approval ratings SOARED. People got it. They got that it was a nonsense hit job. I am seeing a parallel here. Dump on Obama and you increase his approval ratings, decrease the ratings of those doing the hit job.

Last nights episode was insulting no matter which candidate you support.

What was with Stephanopoulos asking his first few questions under his breath? Gibson interrupted Clinton AND Obama several times and was argumentative in doing so.

This was the first time I was screaming at the TV during a debate and it wasn't directed toward any of the candidates.

I've called, emailed and posted a comment on ABCs website.

284. Mickey Mouse and Goofy show their ass for Walt's boys
The big money behind ABC is Disney. You know and love all the great
stuff that came out of Walt's company before he died and it went
to the corporate media moguls. They had their money on Hillary it
is obvious. So we saw two of their talking heads bring the Jerry
Springer front and center and pander for controversy and hate.
I was waiting for them to ask the candidates to bare and defend
their sphincters as a finale.

ABC - New York and California slime spewing media mogul, consumer
brain twisting garbage. Now remind me why I want to ever give you
or the Disney brand you use to shill for your powerful but minority
view of the world, one half second of wasted time or money.

Where are the real journalists and Women's League of Voters or
anyone who isn't LOBBYIST NEWS to run a debate?

Washington is broken, it is lucrative for Wall Street, it is
a godsend for New York MSM (Mains Stream Manipulators) and a
great big loss for us. But let's be polite, and hold the lid
up while these high roller slimers jump into the dumpster.

predicted this. i don't know how they could have possibly known that abc would antagonize obama with BS non-policy issues, how they could have possibly ever suspected that abc had low journalistic standards comparative to fox nooz- i mean they totally must be psychic and all...

there was a thread and a poster replied with:

Expect

*flag pin
*wright
*rezko
*non-issue
*non-issue
*softball clinton
*halo around chelsea
*oh, perhaps one issue which gibson/steph would twist to attempt to make obama's response look bad (SS)


basically.

i really hope this does wonders for obama- not that he needs any sort of miracle, but perhaps this will give him an unstealable boost (although yahoo has a story entitled "Poll: McCain beats both Obama and Clinton," and after one clicks the link, the "poll" is an AP/YAHOO poll...wasn't there some deal where murdoch was to buy yahoo). i find it doubtful, judging by the response thus far, that people are stupid enough to fall for this transparent hitjob. the only people who seem to think it was "fair" and "good" are already diehard clinton supporters.

ps- as zachstar pointed out- use it as motivation; get phone banking and donating- now I really want him to win PA!

371. Really. Is membership in the Weather Underground for life?
And if you happen to associate with someone who was in the organization 40 years ago, are you required to tell them that you cannot exchange conversation? If that is the case, Hillary is in deep shit - all that baggage she says has been rummaged through is all going to be considered relevant again if she is the nominee. After all, the GOP decides what is relevant, and the media goes along with their marching orders.

I wonder how many more supporters of Hillary, have now dropped her and turned to Obama. All the people in the US have seen this so called debate, and many have seen the move by big money to trash Obama, because they are afraid of what he might do for all Americans.
News casters, many have been marked to no end, they are bad and how in the hell they can get away with crap I still wonder.
The writers here are right ABC sucks, and sucks some more, you are not trash of the broadcasters of the country.

325. The parties themselves are to blame for the horrid debates
The presidential debates were originated by the League of Women Voters and were actually quite decent up until 1988, when the parties decided to corrupt them. Then, the League dropped out and the corporate media took over. The League explained at the time:

The League of Women Voters is withdrawing sponsorship of the presidential debates ... because the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetrate a fraud on the American voter. It has become clear to us that the candidates' organizations aim to add debates to their list of campaign-trail charades devoid of substance, spontaneity and answers to tough questions. The League has no intention of becoming an accessory to the hoodwinking of the American public.

327. I have never, ever seen a debate that was representative of a pile of s&^t before last night... But
there it was. Obama survived it. Clinton did too but Clinton also helped the moderators. All of these issues are old and it made ABC look like they were over the hill. I have never seen such petty politics in my entire life.

I was for Obama before but now it makes it tantamount that Obama be elected! While Hillary was trying to rip Obama apart on non-issues (based on that alone, she lost the debate) he only went back at her in response to shut her up.

The failure though was clearly ABC. How can you have a former Clinton aide be a moderator and then be fed Fox questions? In this age of Youtube and Blogs that is ethical suicide.

Worst fucking debate, EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

328. OMG. Sen. Obama must've really not done well...
...for this kind of vicious reaction to a debate.

Once they got to the issues, it was great. Hillary trounced him last night. You win some, you lose some.

It's not ABC's fault. Sheesh.

Politics - what a circus.

Well, don't be so bitter now. Do like those pathetic people of PA, and cling desperately to your virtual guns and your BO-as-Messiah religion.

370. Yep, happy 'cause Hill hit it mostly out of the ballpark despite mods' attempts to trip her.
Once again Hillary grabbed the opportunity to clearly explain her proposals in detail, even throwing in a chuckle there with a comment about the disaster of the Bush/Cheney years.

As for BO, dunno what happened there. Looked like meltdown to me under intense media questioning. It wasn't pretty, so I understand your all's berserk reaction to what transpired last night.

You aren't the least bit bothered that they spent the first 52 minutes on complete bullshit? If they had spent that time on snipergate and bookbaggate and Mark penn, I'd be screaming just as loudly.

them usually have free rein to run their own show but not this time, - Obama & Clinton must be $elling a lot of popcorn for the media.

336. Bring Back the League of Women Voters
Bring back the debates hosted by the League of Women voters. It was better then.

That said, I never cared much for the idea of having "debates" where TV personalities quiz the candidates.

Who moderated the Lincoln-Douglas debates? Nobody.

Let the candidates decide what to talk about. The news media should cover the debates, but they should not control them.

350. Fuck Gibson and his Flag pin
Your Flag Decal wont get you into heaven anymore......http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xp1mIYJNKWQ


While digesting Reader's Digest
In the back of a dirty book store,
A plastic flag, with gum on the back,
Fell out on the floor.
Well, I picked it up and I ran outside
Slapped it on my window shield,
And if I could see old Betsy Ross
I'd tell her how good I feel.

Chorus:
But your flag decal won't get you
Into Heaven any more.
They're already overcrowded
From your dirty little war.
Now Jesus don't like killin'
No matter what the reason's for,
And your flag decal won't get you
Into Heaven any more.

Well, I went to the bank this morning
And the cashier he said to me,
"If you join the Christmas club
We'll give you ten of them flags for free."
Well, I didn't mess around a bit
I took him up on what he said.
And I stuck them stickers all over my car
And one on my wife's forehead.

Repeat Chorus:

Well, I got my window shield so filled
With flags I couldn't see.
So, I ran the car upside a curb
And right into a tree.
By the time they got a doctor down
I was already dead.
And I'll never understand why the man
Standing in the Pearly Gates said...

"But your flag decal won't get you
Into Heaven any more.
We're already overcrowded
From your dirty little war.
Now Jesus don't like killin'
No matter what the reason's for,
And your flag decal won't get you
Into Heaven any more."

354. Lets get an ABC ratings drop
Heres a way to fix the problem with ABC.

Go to your parental controls on your cable box lock out the local & national ABC feeds. End of problem. No cable box? Go to channel scan and delete or skip any of the local ABC stations in your area.

The only way to get ABC's attention is through their sponsors. Lets experiment and see if their ratings drop!!!

Pass it around...

357. Participate in a guerilla tactic against ABC -- TiVo users only
If you have TiVO, turn on your TV. Go to your channel listing and find the ABC station.

Use the little red -- thumbs down key -- and give three thumbs down to all of ABC's programs.

This information is collected and reported -- and advertisers see it. If enough people give the programs a thumbs down, it will have an effect. Not a huge one, but it's something.

The press is the only non-governmental occupation I've noticed mentioned in the Constitution.
Freedom of the haberdashery doesn't make the cut, nor does freedom of engineering. Doesn't this signify the importance of the job to you people at all?
This country is in the foulest shape it's been in in the 50-some years I've been here and all you people can provide for a presidential debate are questions about preachers and stupid little jingoistic flag pins?! It's time you fools got out of the information business...and if you aren't ashamed of your performance rest assured there are plenty of us who are ashamed of you. Go grab yourselves barstools between britney and paris hilton and get the heck out from behind a newsdesk. You don't belong there...any of you.

384. Here's mine
Dear Mr. Salinger,

I'm writing to express my outrage and disgust at the way Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos moderated last night's debate. I turned it off before the 52-minute mark, so I was not able to see a single substantive question from them.

I don't mind so much that they were obviously focused on attacking Barack Obama, as much as I'm incensed that they think the American people are so stupid that we still care to hear about these non-issues.

People are dying in Iraq, gas is over $4 a gallon and the Bush Administration has just been shown to have planned and authorized torture at the highest levels. What kind of priorities do you have at ABC news that make you think "Bittergate" and "Snipergate" are the most important things to discuss in a presidential debate?


Sincerely,
<jgraz>
Former ABC viewer.

373. My e-mail
Over 4000 American troops killed in Iraq, uncounted Iraqi civilians killed, millions of Iraqis displaced, potential costs of the occupation over a trillion dollars, and you ask about lapel pins?

The United States of America torturing prisoners and "rendering" prisoners to other countries for torture, over 100 prisoners dying in our custody and you ask about lapel pins?

The VA underfunded, miserable conditions at Walter Reed, Iraq veterans committing suicide, two, three, four deployments for soldiers, lack of armor for Humvees, and you ask about lapel pins?

3% of American homeowners likely to go into foreclosure, gas to be at $4 per gallon, rising food prices, and you ask about lapel pins?

The United States government spying on citizens without a warrant, converting the Justice Department into hit men for the Republican party, and you talk about lapel pins?

No wonder this country is such a mess if this is what we can expect from our "news" media. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

379. The sig quote I chose several years ago says it all.
"Our Republic and its press will rise or fall together. An able, disinterested, public-spirited press, with trained intelligence to know the right and courage to do it, can preserve that public virtue without which popular government is a sham and a mockery.
A cynical, mercenary, demagogic press will produce in time a people as base as itself."
--Joseph Pulitzer, May 1904.

401. Count me in. Sounded like JOHN Gibson, and George Hannistephanopoulos.
Those assholes better beat a path over to Faux News, where they belong.

Charles Gibson displayed all the brainpower of John Gibson and Georgie now has all the credibility of Sean Hannity, who gave Georgie his marching orders, and Georgie took 'em.

Jerks.

403. My advice to ABC, Charles Gibson and George Stephanopoulos:
Something Positive expressed it best.

404. Has ABC become a FOX affiliate?
ABC should have hired Hannity and Limbaugh as moderators. 
Their questions would have been just as irrelevant and
lacking in substance.

409. ABC SHOULD ROT IN HELL!
I am calling them and their sponsors up, and telling them that I am boycotting them, in regards to their foul debate. They mentioned nothing of Mark Penn to Clinton, but were all over Obama, like flies on fecal matter.
They should go DOWN!

The Crap Circus continues unabated! The pod people in suits continue their pathetic attempts at breaking into the comedy scene by way of racing to see who can be the goofiest quizzer of the Presidential candidates.

Meanwhile John McCain was found wandering the streets looking for his bicycle and no one in the fourth estate says a word.

Limbaugh's army of the intellectually lazy continue to wet the bed over the prospect of that Communist Cracker hater (what else right?) Barak Obama taking over the steady helm that Bush the Bumbling Boobie has so competently maneuvered. Oh heaven forbid!

And I think Hillary is still in the game. It's hard to tell. I think she has masochistic tendencies.

415. Where's the official FUCK THE HYPOCRITES thread?
You know, the one where people pile on to acknowledge the rank hypocrisy displayed after this debate. This level of outrage wasn't evident last summer and fall when other candidates were ignored, marginalized, and given few and poor questions.

Apparently it only matters if it happens to Obama.

428. As a Kucinich supporter who shifted to Edwards and then to Obama...
I think you're a little off the mark here, LWolf. I recall myself and many others in here indicating in very loud voices that we wanted a quality candidates' debate open to all comers, not just to the MSM-annointed contenders.

If you say this as someone who has shifted allegiance to Clinton, well, then, your bias is showing.

429. I haven't shifted allegiance to anyone.
I support neither of the current two contenders.

My bias is towards left/liberal candidates, not towards either centrist/corporate/3rd way/"new" dem candidate currently on the roster.

I remember some protest from DK supporters at the time, and from some supporters of the other candidates who were also marginalized. I don't remember it from the supporters of either Clinton or Obama, though.

I do remember a lot of dismissive responses from those groups when we DID bring it up.

I should be glad that people in greater numbers are speaking up now.

Instead, I find myself "bitter."

434. So, it's OBAMA's fault that Kucinich was ignored?
If it's sounding like I'm being dismissive now, I'm sorry. But I don't want to waste my time with someone who is going to go on to say that they aren't planning to vote, or that they're planning to cast their lot with a write-in vote for a candidate who ain't in the race no more or, worse, with Ralph Fucking Nader.

If I'm off-base (and I do hope I am), then we can pick this conversation back up from where we left off.

If not, then you need to grow up, buck up, and get behind your party. We can't get into a time machine and take a trip back to last summer. And we don't have the luxury of a single tossed vote.

Dig?

440. You don't sound dismissive.
You do sound deliberately obtuse.

I did not state any intentions about my vote in November, and that's irrelevant to my point. I'll leave that red herring lie where it fell.

I'm plenty grown up, thanks.

Hypocrisy: Not walking the talk. Whether or not it applies to Obama in this instance depends on whether he or his campaign complained about his treatment during this debate.

It definitely applies to many of his supporters, who were fine with the way these non-debates were going until their own candidate became the target.

Including their local affiliate which I really like.....but, a girl's gotta take a stand sometimes.

If that "debate" was not proof of a sell-out, bought-&-paid-for media, then there will never be a better example.

448. tell dems to end network involvement and the bipartisan debate neutering commission LINK
Pissed about the shitty debate? Tell the DNC it's time to give debates back to non-partisan non-network hacks like League of Women Voters NOT these asinine pissy gossips at the networks that both parties like because they let them off the hook on real issues like which corporations they are screwing us on behalf of.

Contact Howard Dean and tell him we want real debates by 2012.

Even if we can't get out of the deal with the GOP and the bipartisan debate commission scam, there is no reason the Democratic presidential primary in 2012 should be run like a race for kindergarten class president.

Contact the Democratic Party:
