Come on, why the pretense? They may as well let Worf moderate.

Senile old gun-grabber. He's no Thomas Paine.
[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QUB1Uwfan0"]Schieffer's commentary: U.S. today lacks common sense - YouTube[/ame]
"Common Sense" = "Fair Share" in that they never really define what they mean. They just toss those terms out there. Afterall, who could possibly be against fairness and common sense? Pablum for the masses.
= "You pay .... I don't" .....
If he is as incompetent as some pretend, why be afraid of him? If so many are afraid of him, perhaps it is because he is not so senile as some suppose.
Maybe we should restrict freedom of the press when that right is abused.
i think it's time we ditch the alphabet channel debates, there are alot better alternate sources for news now days that could ask better questions, i havent gotten my news from tv in years...
I didn't imply Schieffer's incompetent. I'm saying he's partisan for Obama. Although you wouldn't know it by the record of moderators provided so far, the moderator is supposed to be an impartial party who keeps time and little else.
I expect him to be as impartial as COWley.
Did anyone hear Bahgdad Bob Schieffer's latest comment on the debates this morning???
I paraphrase (very closely, I just don't believe in my perfection so it's a paraphrase)
"Debate moderates are like sports officials, the only people who complain about their decisions are the losing team"
OH YAH, HE HAS NO BIAS.
Top 7 instances of Schieffer bias:
So what exactly is his "common sense" solution? A psychiatric exam for anyone who wants a gun? I would trust the town soothsayer more than most psychiatrists. It's easy to bloviate about how we've got to do something. Specifics appear to be a bit more of a challenge.
im pretty sure after the complaints on cowley last debate hell be kept on a leash, to save face
For me, his competence is not in question. His willingness to moderate in an unbiased manner is.
You have a lot more faith in Liberals than I do. To them fair play is an unknown concept.
By whom ? .....
I agree. The old fart will continue with the 2 on 1 forum.

In a perfect world a moderator should simply ask the same question to both candidates and make sure they both are given the same amount of time to talk and respond to the questions asked.
Instead what we have is scripted entertainment. The moderators interject their personal political views, both intentionally and unintentionally, into the debates in an effort to make the debates more entertaining. Look at how the MSM treats the debates. They treat them as a game to be won based on "points". They grade the candidates and call the winner based on the canidates emotions and delivery style.
Isn't the comission setting up the debates bi partisan? They could tell him to keep it cool or he'll never be allowed back or something like that
As I've asked before, why do we even need moderators? Lincoln and Douglas didn't have one.
