Revealed: VP Debate Moderator
Martha Raddatz Hosted President
Obama at Wedding, Never Told Public

The liberal media/politician/bureaucrat revolving door spins so rapidly, sometimes it's hard to keep pace. Today we learn via the Daily Caller that the moderator for tomorrow's vice presidential debate, ABC News reporter Martha Raddatz, hosted President Obama as a guest at her 1991 wedding to the man who would later become Obama's FCC commissioner, Julius Genachowski. That's shocking enough in its own right but things are further compounded by the fact that ABC News, home of veteran Democratic adviser George Stephanopolous, has long known about this conflict of interest and did nothing about it. Even worse, the network has

Now the question is, "where is Rience Prius"? (the alleged RNC chair person). The RNC's silence on this is just one reason I don't give them a single cent. The RNC, even John Boner should take the microphones and shout from the highest rooftops that THIS IS WRONG!!!

This seems rather irrelevant 20 years later, but I didn't think she was qualified to begin with. With Stephanwhozeewhats, ABC is not a legitimate news organization.

Is this the wedding that Barry caught the bouquet?

It's all Seinfeld, this time with George kissing Susan , the NBC programming executive, at a preliminary meeting to determine if the pilot was worth of test. At least NBC fired this imaginary Susan for conflict of interest.

Hate to be a wet blanket, but considering that the schedule and moderators were announced awhile back, why all the recent fuss? Is this new news or something rehashed? Jim Lehrer is a lib, but it didn't help Prez Zippy. Just unleash VP Biden and watch all the logic flow from the lips of Rep Ryan. Pundits will have their own debate about the debate come Friday morning.

Gee... what fun is cheating if you can't keep it a secret?

Seems to me Martha Raddatz is lacking ethics.

But hey... we are used to that from liberals.

~~Of course, if a Fox News employee hosting a presidential debate were to exposed as having such a relationship with a Republican president, the story would be plastered all over the media and left-leaning journalists would be calling for him/her to be immediately replaced. Clearly this would be a good idea in this case as well.~~

They protect all things liberal/left leaning......Now that it is out, perhaps she will be more closely watched, and any little bias in her questioning will be noticed.....

I expect softballs to Joe and a slew of questions to Ryan with false premises (Why do you want to give the rich $5T in tax cuts? Why do you want to end Medicare? When you end abortion what will you do about rape victims that die from coathangers? Blah, blah, blah.) The irony is, all these gotcha attempts will give Ryan a chance to expose the lies being told about the Romney campaign.

Didn't Liberal commentators and newsanchors moderate the debates last election, too? And the election before that? And before theat?

How about evening things up sometime? Enough Commie-Propaganda 'debates' -- let's have Mark Levin moderate one of these events, instead. A debate like that, I wouldn't skip. (I might even go pay-per-view to see it.)

This is old, old news about Raddatz. (I saw her at Genachowski's and Obama's law school graduation.) Prior to her marriage to Genachowski, she was married to Ben Bradlee, Junior, who was then with the Boston Globe. Raddatz, who used the name Bradlee professionally--she never called herself Genachowski--was the political correspondent for the ABC affiliate in Boston.

At first I thought Romney and Ryan should protest this. Then I had coffee and breakfast and rethought the whole thing.

Romney won the first debate by miles.

The word is now out. Both Raddatz's and the Commission's connections to Obama have been exposed. So far Romney-Ryan have decided to take the high road and go ahead with the debates as scheduled, with the moderators selected by the commission.

Fine. If the debates come out OK and there is no bias - and we and those like us, including the candidates, will know it - then our team will have won in spite of the probability of bias. If the moderators' bias is apparent and Obama seems to win, to have the system rigged, I expect all **** to break loose.

You really think Obama attending a wedding 21 years ago compares to that. This is a ridiculous distraction.

Liberals say raddatz is a foreign policy "expert." Therefore, expect softballs to plugs such as "what is the obama administration's biggest foreign policy triumph?" Then to Ryan, "do you regret your support of the unpopular Iraq war?"

You have to wonder about the RNC agreeing to all the debates being moderated by people with a very liberal bent. You would think that they would have insisted on just one conservative moderator, maybe Rush Limbaugh, who would have made that debate fun to watch.

the barbells he manhandles in the gym ( verbally, of course ). Don't you folks understand Mr Ryan is as competent as person as ever been on that debate stage. He has a command of the FACTS.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
