The Republican candidates don’t want to do a YouTube debate, and they should.
Apparently they mind that the Democrat YouTube “debate” was a circus, was infantile and doesn’t look Presidential. If they mind that, I wonder why they’re running. I mean, aren’t people still talking about the time Bill Clinton played the sax on Arsenio? Does anyone mention that Clinton can’t play the sax?
Here’s some advice (yes, I’m giving advice twice on one week) guys:
When your rival goes on a beauty contest and gets a heck of a lot visibility and
generates a storm
over whether one candidate will talk without preconditions to every lunatic despot running amok, what you do is go out, make an even better beauty contest, and you outdo them every step of the way.
The Dems had theirs at the Citadel? You have yours at the Air Force Academy (no ofense intended to Citadel alumni reading this blog; it’s only a figure of speech) .
The Dems showed Hillary’s butt? You show Ron Paul’s shoes.
The Dems loved asinine questions? You point out the asininity AND come up with a smart answer.
The questions favor the left? You explain why you are right, and Right.
The Dems stack they questions they like? You stack the questions that are good.
The Dems think they’re edgy? You show you are gutsy.
The Dems had a snowman? You have Bozo.
The questions start with “why”, or “don’t you think”, in an acusatory tone? You reply in clear, well-thought-out answers where you shine.
Compete, outdo, outperform, and win.
Competition improves the product, folks, and you can outdo and outshine ’em. That’s why you’re running.
Or isn’t it?
It’s a question of putting on a good show.
Newsbusters, American Mind and Hit and Run have more on it.
