    Sawyer and Stephanopoulos to debate Republican candidates Saturday night

    Sawyer and Stephanopoulos to debate Republican candidates Saturday night

    Of course I’ll be covering it, probably one of my “updates at the breaks” type of coverage, not a Live Event.  It starts at 9 p.m.

    Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos “moderated” the Drake Debate in December.   My prior posts: Drake Debate – Video highlights, Drake Debate Post-Op & Tweets of Night and Duel at Drake Debate.

    This should be the hottest debate yet.  Without Michele Bachmann on stage, Romney will not have someone to do the attacking for him, and we are at the point where Newt and Perry have nothing to lose from hammering Romney.  The wild card will be Santorum — will he focus on Romney or the not-Romneys?

    I’m expecting and hoping for fireworks.

    Assuming Santorum and Gingrich come after him, it’ll be interesting to see if Mitt fights back or employs the usual frontrunner strategy known as the rope-a-dope. I think he’d better off fighting back because GOP voters want to nominate a fighter to square off against Barack H(ugo Chavez) Obama.

    I’m wondering when they will finally get down to the economy.
    Of course, Sawyer and Snufagufalus will avoid that subject.

    Hopefully this will finally be the time when Romney’s record is finally scrutinized.

    Jim Hoft over at Gateway Pundit might have a bit of insight on why Newt, and Rick Perry, did so poorly in Iowa. Seems the IowansFueledWithPride.com, a ethanol subsidy supporting group, sent out flyers right before the election showing that Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry did not support ethanol subsidies, a fatted pig that Iowa farmers have been sucking the teat of for 30 years.

    But the joke is on Iowa. The little piggie named “Corn Subsidy” died on 12/31/11 at midnight. The Congress not only did not renew the thirty year old theft of taxpayer dollars (to the tune of $45 BILLION) but the Congress also lifted the tariff on Brazilian ethanol.

    So Iowans, in their effort to continue getting a check off the backs of taxpayers all across the country, turned their backs on the two guys who would have theirs when it comes to taxes and regulations. Of course, the “ethanol” industry claims that it doesn’t matter that the subsidy is gone, but then why make it an issue in Iowa? Sorry, Iowans, some of us are just not that stupid. You want your little piggie back and you know that the check is NOT in the mail. So now you’re stuck with picking the worst of the litter. Hope it bites you.

    Now here is my question: why do our candidates, who are all vying for the conservative vote, put themselves in a position to be grilled and asked “gotcha” questions from the likes of Sawyer and Clinton’s token midget? They have no other goal than to provide fodder for the Obama administration/campaign by making our candidates look small. Insanity, pure insanity.

      “…why do our candidates, who are all vying for the conservative vote, put themselves in a position to be grilled and asked “gotcha” questions from the likes of Sawyer and Clinton’s token midget?…”

      Indeed!!! And most of them – except Gringrich and Santorum -declined the proposed Trump-moderated debate?

      McCain should tell his endorsed candidate, Romney, that no matter how much MSM hind end he kisses, they still despise him and will unload on him should his poll numbers ever rise above 25%.

      Sawyer’s biased reports are too numerous to itemize: however, MediaResearch does a laudable job at the link. http://www.mediaresearch.org/Profiles/Sawyer/welcome.asp

      I no longer watch her, but the two most disgusting performances I recall are her 1998 interview of Ken Starr and her condescension to Adam Sandler on Good Morning America, circa 1998-1999.

      No, the joke is still on the consumer. As long as the mandate for 15% ethanol remains, gasoline refiners will just have to pay more for it and pass the cost along that way. Sugar-based ethanol production will take some time to come into the US market after the punitive tariffs.

      Another dirty little secret is that the ethanol mandate causes billions in damage to engines, shortening their lives.

      Santorum is the big ethanol supporter in the field, though, and received the only perfect score from the interest group evaluating the candidates.
