    That's kind of stupid. I think the primaries helped Clinton a lot, even of Obama won, she connected with a lot of people and we learned a lot about her as her own political force. I would say that it also helped Romney in the year McCain won.

    Even before the Clinton dispute, Republican leaders favored plans to have fewer presidential debates with more friendly moderators. They believe their 2012 presidential candidates spent too much time beating up each other in last year's months-long primary season, which contributed to Mitt Romney's loss.....snip~

    They should ban CNN just based on Candy Crowley's clearly lopsided moderation job in the Presidential debate. I think it is funny that she can't resist slighting the GOP about this documentary for not appreciating the nuance that this documentary was not done by CNN proper--they are just showing it.

    The Republican National Committee has approved a resolution to block two television networks from hosting GOP presidential primary debates.

    Friday's vote affirms RNC chairman Reince Priebus's (ryns PREE'-bus) threat against CNN and NBC unless the networks drop plans to air programs about possible Democratic presidential contender Hillary Rodham Clinton. The vote at the committee's summer meeting in Boston was unanimous.....snip~

    Especially when her question(s) wasn't/weren't) answered the first, second and third times it/they) was/were) asked. With that, do you expect Limbaugh-type moderators to try and hurt C. Christie for being normal and not a loon?

    C. Christie will guarantee a huge audience, no matter which loon moderators are chosen. Repup women will come back. Centrist Dems, private-union and secret public-union folks like him. I liked his "we have a gender problem in NJ, we're up +29" quote.

    Well not accusing the debater of being wrong when he was right and you are wrong would be a good start at moderation; as would not making most of the debate about yourself. I guess I am old fashioned for thinking that a moderator needs to stay in the background in a debate.

    Since you are good old fashioned, you support honesty. Since the first debates in 1960, for the first time a certain Repup can-di-date insisted on dishonesty. Can we expect Rinse P. to insist on Repup loon moderators for the general election?

    But the Democrats in 2007 weren't taking jet packs, moving their joysticks to the far left and then dumping all their fuel at once into the combustion chamber. The Democrats clearly played center left, but the Republicans in 2011 were way off in the far right field that Ronald Reagan would be considered a RINO by their criteria. The Democrats tended to stay away from the same kind of arguments that were later used against Obama. The Republicans basically wrote Obama's playbook against Romney during the primaries. In many ways, the problem wasn't anything about how the broadcasting and exposure was done, it was the people the GOP got to run. They tore each other down but never built themselves back up and thus when the general election came about, they were weak.

    The RNC appears to be trying to limit the amount of exposure where the same thing can happen, but doesn't seem like it's doing that good of a job at preventing the same kind of politicians from running in the first place. Makes sense. If you can't fix your candidates from ripping each other's throats out, at least limit the amount of times the public sees it on TV.

    Hillary benefited from a relatively civil Democrat primary. No one benefited from that no-holds-barred Republican primary.

    But at what point does that outweigh having your candidates proverbially eviscerate each other over and over and over on TV?

    I think the GOP actually values artificially limiting candidate exposure given the last primary and seeing how it helped Obama win, they're not wrong if they get another batch of 2012 candidates.

    No debates on those channels? What were those channels again? Wait, never mind. For a second there I thought I cared, but I was wrong.
