simplicimus: incendi: Party Boy: Limeys do a better job of that.I would love it if we adopted something similar to "the Prime Minister's Questions" here for the President to answer to the Senate. It'd be too much of a ruckus to do it in the House.I enjoy watching the Prime Minister's Questions, even though most of the time I have no idea what's being discussed. We could do that in the senate, but what would be the large book the President consults?
Coco LaFemme: "President Obama, why did you campaign in 2008 as a liberal, when you never governed as one the last four years?"
imontheinternet: I wouldn't mind seeing a debate with two hyper-partisan moderators, one for each candidate. Let Keith Olbermann ask Romney questions, while Sean Hannity asks Obama questions. It wouldn't exactly be the model of decorum, but it would certainly reflect the modern political landscape quite well.
Party Boy: Just in case anyone isn't aware of this 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.

Party Boy: To be fair, I feel that way about most TV news personalities.
"Yeah, you want to go ahead and run that sh*storm of a word salad by me again? I'm pretty sure that's not what I asked you."
Party Boy: Lehrer and Schieffer?Not too shabby.
Party Boy: kronicfeld: will be doing their best to keep the candidates on topicSorry, when in the recent history of alternating soapboxes debates has a moderator actually done this?Limeys do a better job of that.
Sybarite: Call me when they go back to being actual debates run by an independent body rather than carefully managed stage show the RNC and DNC agree to put on every four years.
