For the recent CVS GOP -- of the debate.
A lot of frustration spilled out and understandably so.
The network only aired the first hour of the debate then they directed people to finish watching -- on a web site that didn't work.
At times a moderator seemed as if he wanted to debate the candidates instead of allowing them to debate the issues.
And this often is the case some candidates got horribly short changed with virtually no real time to answer questions and might as well slipped out for a sandwich.
Ron Paul was given only 89 seconds in the entire debate to answer questions.
In the words of another politician from Arkansas.
I feel their pain.
-- four years ago.
I get very disgusted by -- format that was often more like a game show than an honest and serious debate.
About some important issues of being president and leading the country.
I remember that lift your hand stuff from Chris Matthews.
And getting religious questions about the origins of the earth they didn't have one thing to do with being commander in chief.
It was equally frustrating when a moderator would spend three or four minutes asking a question and then demand that I answer -- in thirty seconds or less.
I sometimes wondered if the so called debate was about the candidates are the media stars who pose the questions.
These events are sometimes stage for entertainment and ratings but their life and death to the campaigns of people who have risked everything to run for president.
While I realize how easy it is to offer armchair critique of the candidates.
Their answers and even what they Wear is often lost to the depth of the issues.
Some of the debate moderator is blatantly create an atmosphere of who they favor not only by the amount of time allocated to each candidate but even by the placement on stage.
And determining who gets the first question.
-- treat these events like game shows or reality shows -- have a real reality show.
Let's just let everyone audition like American Idol and in the people can call in and vote.
In the meantime.
I'd love to see less of a show and more of a real conversation with men and women who might end up as leader of the free world.
It might not be as entertaining as it is -- browsers and bells and a show of hands and the audience warping and hollering and booing and cheering.
But given that our country is in a world of hurt and could use some real leadership right now.
I'm not sure there's as much to cheer about as there is to think about it.
