Am I simply a blind Obama supporter or was ABC's "debate" between Sens. Obama and Clinton last night overtly biased in Hill's favor? I would liken this
debate debacle to a crusade against Obama, but that would be too nice of me to say. This was sabbotage; through and through. And I'm not the only person who seems to think so.
For starters, George Stephanopoulos; a loyal Clinton supporter and former advisor was one of the moderators. Red flag, anyone? As if that somehow wasn't enough, he and Charles Gibson were pitching Obama fastballs full of titaniam, while tossing underhanded pitches to Hill with softballs filled with marshmellows. That, to me, makes for a pretty unbalanced homerun derby (or is it that ABC debate questions = performance enhancers for Hillary?).
On top of everything, not only were the questions clearly pointed, but they were tragically shallow; considering that America is facing more crises than we've ever experienced. For that matter, most of the MSM has been disappointing me so far. Rather than focusing on international policy, economic matters, this endless war, etc.; areas like Rev. Wright, lapels, "bitter" citizens, etc. all keep finding their way to the forefront. On one hand, the candidates need a national forum to put these stories to rest. But once they've sufficiently addressed them they NEED to actually be put to rest.
CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC putting out dismal performances is pretty expected. They're serving special interests of their respective networks. But ABC should know better. Shame on them.
Here's the director's cut of the PA debates that we didn't get to see:
