Pero's Quick Scorecard: Republican Debate III

Did you watch this debate?  Of course you didn't.  Do you even know what channel CNBC is on your cable/dish?  Of course you don't...That's why I'm here for you - so you didn't have to waste two hours of your life.  And it was a waste.

The big losers of the night - there were two:

CNBC was a disgrace.  From the beginning to the end, it was awful.

“The CNBC moderators acted less like journalists and more like Clinton campaign operatives.  What was supposed to be a serious debate about the many issues plaguing our economy was given up for one Democratic talking point after another served up by the so-call 'moderators.'  They clearly war-gamed this thinking that a relentless series of personal attacks on the candidates would somehow drive their ratings and help Hillary Clinton.  The CNBC debate will go down in history as an encyclopedic example of liberal media bias on stage.”  – Brent Bozell

From the very beginning I saw this coming, and it was shameful...But I'm not surprised in any way.  No one should be.

Which leads me to the second big loser of the night:  The RNC - Chairman Reince Priebus in particular.

Why do they insist on having debates on Liberal channels who don't even pretend to play it straight?  All they did was set the candidates up for abuse...This fiasco should lead the RNC to cancel any debates they may have scheduled on NBC, MSNBC or CNBC for the rest of this election cycle - including refusing to allow them to host a Presidential Debate.  They are unnecessary debate hosts - no one watches the two cable channels anyway - and would be a good reminder to other networks to play it straight or be excluded themselves.

If Priebus doesn't do this it should cost him his job - no matter how the 2016 election turns out.

So, who won the debate?  Marco Rubio won, and I it wasn't even close.  He once again showed the best stage presence, had smart, concise answers to the important issues, said what he came to say, and didn't take the bait on any of the gotcha questions...Ted Cruz had a great moment, taking the fight to the moderators, actually using some of his time to tell the moderators how ridiculous they were.

On a final note:  It's time for Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee, and all the under card guys to go back to their day jobs.
