Conservative Americans around the country is tired of the mainstream media and establishment party calling the shots on what and who is electable. They are not happy with liberal moderators at a conservative debate and never conservative moderators at a liberal debate. These GOP candidates are fighting to give the country their vision of what America should be and how they can make it work.
But with the liberal stronghold, it’s hard to get anything done or their presidential platforms out there, hence the GOP Candidates Rebellion of 2016.
According to The Hill:
Going forward, the RNC will continue to be involved in debate operations, campaign advisers said, such as media credentialing and ticket sales, but will not take the lead in negotiating the formats of the debates.
“They’ll continue to do logistics and all that kind of stuff,” said Ben Carson’s campaign manager Barry Bennett. “But they’re a partner. They’re not our boss.”
As for the networks, the meeting at a hotel in the Washington suburbs ended with no firm conclusions, but with the promise for more talks about future debates.
Dr. Ben Carson was very pointed on this issue, probably more animated than when he’s on stage during the debates:
“Some people pretty much ignore the time constraints, while others are very careful to stay within them, and I think that creates inequality,” Carson said. “We need to tighten it up a little bit and do it more like a professional type of debate.”
“We should have moderators who are interested in disseminating the information about the candidates, as opposed to, you know, ‘gotcha’ ‘you did this’ and ‘defend yourself on that’,” Carson said.
The retired neurosurgeon also suggested moderators change how they form their questions.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who has been in the second-tier debates because of low polling numbers, doesn’t believe national polling should determine who gets on the main stage.
And Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.), also relegated to the rush-hour debates, wants the field split in half with random draw determining who is on stage in two separate debates.
I think Graham’s suggestion is kinda neat. That would shake things up a little but it might be too little too late with the primaries not that far away. What do you think? Share your comments below.
