Mauro: Debate Weekend – The Nasty Newt Show

The Republican presidential candidates will have back-to-back debates this weekend on Saturday at 9 PM and Sunday at 9 AM, amounting to what Politico is calling “Mitt Romney’s weekend from hell.” Santorum will have the spotlight as he never has before, but expect Newt Gingrich to steal the show by doing everything he can to take Mitt Romney apart.

The big moment everyone is waiting for is when a moderator asks about how Gingrich flatly called Romney a “liar” over the anti-Gingrich ad campaign in Iowa by a pro-Romney Super PAC. Gingrich followed that with: “Somebody who will lie to you to get to be president will lie to you when they are president.” He’s repeatedly called him “timid” and a “Massachusetts moderate” that Obama will “laugh at” in a general election.

    “I just don’t understand how the American and Canadian networks can allow tripe like this to go out over the public airwaves.”

    Easy….it’s because in their own pee brains, they truly believe themselves to be fair, balanced and basically middle of the road or maybe just a tiny bit leftist. ANYBODY who doesn’t share their train of thought is (case closed) far right.

    Along the same lines, I am presently snowbirding in the U.S. and as a result am being bombarded with the present political happenings that are presently going on down here.

    The only fair and balanced coverage I can find is on Fox. At least they put on and/or allow both sides and also identify where each side is coming from whereas MSNBC, NBC and ABC make no bones about where their sympathies lie and simply don’t present the other side. Our CBC is not a whole lot different.

    Just last evening I made the mistake of watching the debate on ABC and I am absolutely appalled at the blatant bias shown by George Stephapoulos (sp??) I always thought our CBC was bad but this display was nothing short of outrageous. Then again this A.M., I was watching ABC again (bad mistake) and it was Stephanapoulos’ regular program and it was even worse.

    I just don’t understand how the American and Canadian networks can allow tripe like this to go out over the public airwaves.
