George Stephanopoulos Displays Liberal Media’s 2012 Strategy
Left-wing apparatchik George Snuffluplibsbutts offers a foretaste of 2012 presidential coverage by exploiting last night’s debate as an opportunity to plant in the public mind the absurd concept that Republicans want to take your Trojans away. Willard Milquetoast deals as well as can be expected with Stephanopoulos’s pathologically persistent fatuity, although a firmer defense of the 10th Amendment would be nice…

Last night’s debate shows legacy media eager to make Republican presidential candidates appear obsessed with social issues
B. Daniel Blatt
Sometimes in their commentary, our readers express points important enough to merit a post of their own. Our loyal reader and regular commenter did just that in a comment to my recent post on Newt Gingrich:
Why was so much time even put to the question of gay marriage last night? Really? Our economy is strangling in taxes and bureaucracy. Iran is nuking up as [President Obama] guts our military. EUrotopia is collapsing into bankruptcy. China’s economy is slowing. [Obama] has been shutting down domestic hydrocarbon production while loaning billions to Brazil for offshore drilling and running guns to Mexican drug gangs. The [president] is making unconstitutional appointments and just signed a law letting himself detain American citizens indefinitely for no reason… and they spend the first quarter of the debate talking about gay marriage? WTF?
I think we know why…
…Without folks like Gregory to push administration arguments, one wonders if the incumbent would be doing as well in the polls as he is.

Gleaned From the ABC News/Yahoo! Debate: George Stephanopolous’ Apparent, Curious Fixation With Birth Control, Little Else
Green Mountain Scribes
Saturday evenings ABC News/Yahoo! GOP POTUS candidates “debate” provided lite entertainment, but little else.
A combination of poor moderation and an aversion among the candidates to significantly challenge one another on issues of differentiation appears to have resulted in the candidates largely but firmly holding whatever ground they held coming into the debate…
…Perhaps the most noteworthy revelation from the debate is it would appear that Mr. Stephanopolous has a curious, almost passionate fixation with birth control methods and products, while the most noteworthy omissions were intelligent questions advanced by moderators regarding significant domestic issues of Obamacare, immigration, keystone pipeline, and the recent, highly questionably conducted recess appointments made by Barack Obama. These glaring omissions were illustrated in a well confirmed-by-“Likes” comment I read on a Facebook post…
