Second GOP Debate: Will the Whining Ever Stop?
If the Republicans ever came up with a fresh idea, maybe they would stop their whining about the second GOP debate of 2015. But since that has happened, if it ever has, they will probably keep on complaining about the questions they were asked at the second Republican debate. Personally, I thought the questions were perfectly fine at this debate.
Nearly all of the Republican candidates complaints about the second debate basically boil down to the fact that the questions were too challenging and they didn’t have any answers of any real relevance.
Their primary source of complaint that the Republican candidates seem to have is with CNBC, the network that moderated the second GOP debate. They are claiming that the questions were “gotcha” questions.
In other words, the questions were too thoughtful and well composed. The questions asked by the moderators challenged the debaters and forced them to actually think and give some real solid answers about their various policies; something that no GOP candidate is willing to do, probably because they don’t have any answers.
Most prominent among the complainers, or “whiners” as I call them was Donald Trump. In fact, he was complaining about the moderators and CNBC even before the debate happened. It seems that CNBC has put him down in the polls and has been rather critical of him and his candidacy. During the debate, Donald Trump, got visibly angry when one of the moderators actually questioned both the legitimacy of his presidential candidacy, as well as his plan to build a wall between the United States and Mexico. Apparently, Donald Trump doesn’t like being put in a position where he actually has to stop and think, give relevant answers, or stop bashing his opponents which has been a cornerstone of his entire candidacy.
I thought that the three moderators from CNBC did a good job of hosting the second GOP debate. It’s too bad that most of the prominent members of the “Republican clown car” have no real answers to anything; a condition that has existed for many years. Now, this bunch of whiners, backed by the Republican National Committee (RNC) has decided to sever all relations with the entire NBC network. I suppose they expect a well-respected news network like NBC to be more like Fox News, the propaganda outlet for the GOP. I seriously doubt that this will happen, at least I hope it doesn’t, despite how much whining the GOP candidates do about the second GOP debate.
