-- want to turn out of Rick Sanchez is a Fox News Latino contributor.
Because he has been following these presidential debates very close links and you can check out his column.
The -- Fox Latino of course on our web site in brick so you need some sort of predictions -- latest column of what we we're gonna see you last night.
What did you expecting what did you in the NC.
But what I saw was certainly not what I expected this was an aggressive debate it was confrontational.
This may be a bit about testosterone -- answer.
Because I know there's a lot of women who disagree with this but I enjoyed the confrontational and aggressive matter in which these two guys went at each other it was raw.
And it was real and I say I didn't expect it because I've written about it just yesterday the fact that the format was a stale old format.
Exactly -- -- let me just read here part because I enjoyed your -- so very very much.
And you -- now this is -- manufactured piece of television team produced by and for the benefit of media and political power brokers it's reality TV.
At its worst.
-- good line but it surprised you.
Well I did because.
Well interestingly enough I think the fact that it was a fun debate to watch had less to do with the format must do with the audience -- more to do with the strength of the candidates in fact.
To back that up I can tell you that I've read a couple of interviews with some of the people who were chosen to ask questions.
And I heard them say well the question I was given to ask was.
Which is uninteresting and a town hall forum that you would have people give them answers.
Chose -- and filtered by the media and that was my point if we're literally have a town hall.
-- -- -- real town -- that real people show up and ask real questions and don't filter the information.
That's what Doug true democracy would be -- it would be more akin to what we see in small towns all across America during zoning hearings and sometimes that's not so bad Greg.
Yeah -- read another section here column and again I -- Got a chuckle out of it here's.
You have very good sense of humor and I've -- -- for for years.
But -- right I know what you think you come on Sanchez do we really want somebody get up and ask Obama if he's a Muslim or ask Romney about his so called magic Mormon underwear.
Actually yes -- -- Puts you right take it from there.
Well I think it's interesting that while we all but look at those questions and say that they're simplistic -- the ramifications of them weren't really important that most of us.
It would be interesting to see these candidates have to react to the kinds of things that Americans are talking about at their dinner tables every night because.
-- why is -- that elephant in the room people talk about this all over the country we've seen the other polls that reflect that.
Why is -- that the media when they talk to the candidates don't say you know -- a lot of people think this about you how would you respond.
That's the kind of thing that would be fresh it would be different and if we decide in the future that we -- to continue this.
Town hall format.
That maybe we should really exploited and make it a real town hall format where people didn't ask real questions.
That was my point not -- -- you're right what what we -- away with last night was much better than I was expecting.
I watch the one between in 2000 debate between McCain and Obama.
That was a snooze fest compared to what we saw last yeah.
Right yet gate you're the king a Twitter talk to me about your Twitter exchanges over this.
Well I'll tell you there's been I'd like I couldn't.
-- fast enough.
-- get enough responses it was it was it was crazy just trying to pay attention and tweet I always like to live tweet during big events I've been doing it since I've been.
Hankering for a many years and I found last night -- passion.
On both sides was significant the one thing on Twitter that I really recognize -- I thought was extremely important.
In fact Fox News last night was the first to report this of all -- that were discussed last night Greg.
The one that was picked up most on Twitter effect -- had over 125000.
Hits on this.
People tweeting back and forth was immigration interestingly enough who -- -- that it wasn't Libya that was of the tax -- wasn't drilling it was actually immigration.
And I really think in that sense neither candidate hit it out of the park right by that Mitt Romney may have lost a wonderful opportunity again to score some points.
With seventeen of the percent of the population that could be a big voting block for her and it's because he kind of -- because I went back.
You know a strong as a candidate is he's been and as much as he tried to make overtures in this area.
He sounded a little Arpaio issue once again.
Or -- if you will and I think and then when given a chance to clarify it rather than continuing to talk about immigration.
He decided he wanted to switch to China I don't think that was Smart at least not for closer -- that's.
100 -- Of his five point plan so we you know he he loves coming back to China which is incredibly relevant by the way.
Since they basically on American holder debt pay -- race.
I -- -- and I think -- by the way I think he kicked Obama's Fannie when it comes to China Korea I think it I think on China and on drilling he was extremely strong.
Albeit making the mistake that he did with the question of active terror but I think he was very strong in several issues -- -- a -- -- I'll tell you what.
That's fun to watch it I will try to educate every edge of your seat television there are times there indeed -- -- confrontational manner no laws you know.
Check out Rick Sanchez whose column on Fox News Latino Rick great see you thanks very much -- -- -- isn't doing it.
