The best entertainment there is on the news these days is the games the GOP and the candidates are playing with each other……the candidates are pouting about their performance on CNBC debate and of course it is the media’s fault that they are clueless toads….
I have tried to put together a post about the games being played over the future debates and it is a daunting task…first, I cannot get through the research without laughing so hard I damn near pee and second…where to begin?
The last GOP debate was a debacle….the candidates were pouting , the moderators of CNBC were mean and the network has issued a statement to not pile on CNBC…..all in all it was a hilarious 2 hours of one liners and insults….just what the candidates ordered….it accomplished nothing….no ideas were offered and definitely nothing new was had by the viewers…..
The candidates have stood together to get what they want (or did they?)….the debate (that is after the FOX Business debate) will be what they want to talk about and nothing else……but what can we expect in the next debate later this month?
The debate about the GOP debates looks set to rumble on. Reps from at least 11 campaigns met at a hotel in the DC suburbs for a strategy meeting on Sunday night and emerged with a list of changes they want made after last week’s widely criticized CNBC debate. The New York Times reports that the campaigns have agreed to demand 30-second or longer opening and closing statements for all candidates, an even distribution of both speaking time and the “parity and integrity” of questions asked, and vetting of any on-screen graphics about the candidates to be aired during the debates.
The campaigns agreed that they, not the Republican National Committee, should take charge of negotiating terms with the networks, the Hill reports. “They’ll continue to do logistics and all that kind of stuff. But they’re a partner. They’re not our boss,” says Ben Carson’s campaign manager. The campaigns were split on several issues, including reinstating the next NBC debate, which Jeb Bush’s people wanted and Donald Trump’s team didn’t, and doing away with “undercard” debates, which reps from the Bobby Jindal, Lindsey Graham, and Rick Santorum campaigns called for, the Times reports. A source tells the Washington Post that the campaigns agreed early on that any changes can wait until after next week’s Fox Business Network debate.
Is anyone else just tickled at the way the GOP is handling this issue? I mean come on….these toads look like a bunch of 4th graders on the playground trying to out stupid each other…..
And what in their demands means that they will appear more professional?
Plus the next debate is a FOX debate…..what will be earth shattering about a channel that will hand them softball questions……just what the clowns ordered…….
To me these people are acting like 4th graders at the playground when things do not go their way……prima donas……
With all the rebellion there seems to be a rebellion within the rebellion…..and of course our boy from Manhattan leads the way…….
The Republican campaigns’ joint effort to change upcoming GOP debates has cracked. After a meeting Sunday, the campaigns issued a three-page letter calling for no “lightning round” and the temperature in debate halls to be “below 67 degrees.” But as New York puts it, “the revolt against the RNC was fun while it lasted.” Donald Trump has announced that he’ll negotiate with TV networks on his own, while Chris Christie, John Kasich, and Carly Fiorina each say they won’t sign the letter. Trump’s campaign manager says he can “negotiate the best deals … which will ultimately help all of the candidates,” per the Washington Post. But Ben Carson’s camp says his undertaking is all for show. “Trump’s basically asking for the same thing” as the other candidates, a rep says. “He’s just going to do it with his own letterhead.”
Still, Trump’s move is a blow that “would undercut the leverage that the Republican campaigns have in pressing the networks to meet their demands,” reports the New York Times. An RNC rep says the candidates “will be and always should be determining the best format for them.” However, network execs are obviously frustrated. “We agreed to this and now you’re saying you’re not agreeing?” says one. “Do you want Ben Carson deciding who your moderators are? The answer is no,” adds another. Fiorina’s campaign, which didn’t send a rep to Sunday’s meeting, says she doesn’t care “whether it’s 67 degrees or our green room isn’t as plush as another candidate.” Likewise, Christie says his rivals should “stop complaining. Do me a favor, set up a stage, put podiums up there and let’s just go. Okay?”
One of the best summaries of what is going on in the GOP is found on MSNBC’s Maddow’s show…….check out the link and her handling the chaos that idiots built……..

The RNC is scrambling around trying to appear to have a handle on all this craziness…..personally I think they are an epic failure…..
Does anyone in the RNC or the GOP have any idea of what is happening? Right now they all look like a deer caught in the headlights…..
Can my readers of anything more humorous than the games these toads are playing?
