Conservatives say debate
moderator Martha Raddatz
let Biden steamroll Ryan

The Hill [Washington DC], by Jonathan Easley

Conservatives expressed irritation during Thursday night’s debate with moderator Martha Raddatz, who they said let Vice President Biden repeatedly break into Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s answers. ABC reporter Raddatz didn’t interject to allow Ryan to finish, some conservatives noted on Twitter. National Review reporter Katrina Trinko said Raddatz was being “walked over” by Biden.

She interrupted Ryan almost as much as Biden did. She should be ashamed to call herself a moderator.

She should have been wearing a 0dumbo/Bite Me campaign button. Not only did she allow and almost encourage the interruptions, she aggressively pushed Ryan, asking repeatably for specifics. Not once did she ask Joe the same, nor did she ask him not to interrupt. I thought Ryan did a fantastic job of not showing any anger or frustration.

I read somewhere that there were questions about whether she should be Moderator. I think it was that Obama was a guest at her wedding (now divorced) to one of his supporters?
But the commission on presidential debates kept her on. She was a major mistake.. and of course Joe B. always has been.

Isn't it obvious that both Biden's and Raddatz's performance at this revenge meeting were planned and scripted? It was predictable. Ryan proved himself worthy of much more respect than either Biden or Radish.

I've said it a million times, I'll say it once more: why do Republicans continue to fall for the liberal media moderated debates? They are like Charlie Brown trusting that Lucy is going to actually hold the football and allow him to kick it--we all know what the result is going to be. Yet, every 4 years it is the same thing!

Why not demand one of the following:
-no moderator: candidates debate just like in the old days of Lincoln/Douglas
-no media as moderators: heck bring in a referee from the NFL--at least they know how to call a foul and pay attention to the rules and the clock
-mixed, non-media panel of questioners and a time/rule keeper: ask question but no interruptions or follow-up questions

Dem groupie Raddatz was the sorriest excuse for a moderator I have seen in fifty years of watching televised debates (yes, I watched Nixon/Kennedy.) As others have commented above, she continuously and blatantly tried to help Biden by interrupting Paul Ryan. Looks like she, Biden, and the rest of the crew are scared spitless by Ryan's message.

She had a contentious tone throughout when dealing with Ryan, except when she wallowed in soppiness like the abortion question. At least her appearance matched her performance.

She did just as bad as Biden...the game between the two Libs was to keep Ryan from making any points.

I'm surprised Ryan didn't call both of them on it!

She allowed Biden time and time again opportunity to talk over Ryan, who had the floor, and then had the gall to say he was worried he wouldn't get time to respond! That girl pal of Obama who was the moderator was horrible. I agree with Michelle Malkin that the first question Ryan should have asked her was how her sisters wedding went that Obama attended.

When, oh when, will the Republicans draw the line and tell the "Debate Commission" they will no longer allow them to stack the deck against our candidates with Democrat "moderators"? Imagine last night's debate moderated by Bill Bennett or Glenn Beck... now that would be fun and probably a whole lot more balanced.

It served its purpose if it opened the eyes of the nation.

Obama and Biden are both characters, not true patriots! They showed US what they are made of! They are not people who want to get along and serve this country, only to get all they can and not even consider what others are going through. Too many parties and not enough meetings of minds that would bring US together for the betterment of all!

What I saw last night was that Ryan let Biden steamroll Ryan. To say otherwise is to accept belief that Raddatz was in any way going to be fair and impartial. Today's criticisms sound kind of hollow since Ryan knew going in, or at least should have know since the rest of the free world knew, that he would have to be a little more tenacious in getting his points across.

Biden was so out of control that about all Raddatz could have done would be to call the bouncers. Joe would have understood. He has been thrown out of so many bars. Most have barred him from ever returning.

Oh, but she asked Ryan the burning question that voters want to know--Should we apologize for our soldiers urinating on the koran?
yeah...don't ask about the awful economy, 20-million people out of work, $5 gas in CA, or anything that would make Obama look bad

Im glad to hear that any gains Crazy Joe got at debate were washed out by his indecency. But this Radditz pizzed me off. There was at least one - two moments where CRazy had finished his lame reply and Radditz asked a follow up and you could see abject fear in Crazys eyes as her qwuestion unraveled and then as she finsished she said please rpely to that Cong Ryan. ahnd Crazy breathed a sigh of relief. Gimme a break. The issue of why RNC allows far left moderators has to be discussed and dealt with. This is insane. http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/261623-conservatives-say-debate-moderator-letting-biden-steamroll-ryan

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
