Forceful Martha Raddatz
draws praise as moderator

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/12/2012 9:55:52 AM

NEW YORK — ABC’s Martha Raddatz took a forceful approach to moderating the vice presidential debate on Thursday, winning many positive reviews from instant pundits on social media but some complaints from Republicans. Her performance was a clear contrast to PBS’ Jim Lehrer’s work in last week’s debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney. Lehrer let the presidential candidates talk almost freely, while Raddatz sought to be more specific and keep things under control. Raddatz, a foreign policy correspondent at ABC News since 1999, was moderating her first vice presidential or presidential debate.

Comments:
What a shock. The leftists at APee give her praise. s/o Yeah, she was forceful against Paul Ryan. She continually cut off his answers. Biden remained untouched and was allowed to continue his disgraceful, rude behavior.

She certainly moderated Ryan. Her wedding guest's running mate, not so much.

To have this bone thin anorexic woman try to be fair was expecting way too much.
The whole thing was a sham.

No rational adult could not have missed Raddatz' complete bias in interupting Ryan and helping Smirky Joe.

It was a complete hack job.

AP comment on Martha! Barf!

Martha interrupts Paul's answers.
Martha leaves Joe's answers alone!

Martha's "gotch-a" question on Abortion was a setup to continue the "War of Women" Obama narrative.

Seems that the only way the left can sorta win is if they control the situation, because if they are left to discuss they can't. Sorry but Raddatz was not impressive and in fact quite annoying to us mere citizens.

Her question about appologizing for a couple of troops peeing on Al Queda bodies... why did she ask Ryan that? He isn't second in line as CinC, he isn't the supposed foreign affairs expert, he isn't the one bragging about how many times he's been on the scene.

Martha Raddatz interrupted Ryan and argued with him so often that he actually asked her at one point, "Are you throwing in with him?"

Raddatz is a disgrace. She exercised no control over Big mouth Biden at all, and should have give Ryan extra time and a guarantee that he wouldn't be interrupted.

She is a major zero.

It was two against one! She was the worst moderator in history! She has that Diane Sawyer-like breathiness and hair flip. She is a leftist and clearly favored Biden. She had it in her power to say, "...with all due respect Mr. Vice President, please let your opponent answer the questions without interruptions and I will do the same thing if he interrupts you..." She chose not to do that because she had an agenda.

Yep, she was a moderator all right, moderating Ryan and giving Joe a pass. I'm convinced she and Biden got together and plotted/planned to keep Ryan down and interrupt him making points, IT WAS OBVIOUS. The timing of Joe's 82 interruptions, and Raddatz's interruptions as Ryan was finalizing his points...and this is why the Libs, sicko's that they strive to be, are happy.

Zippy is not going around apologizing for a couple of soldiers peeing on Al Qaeda corpses (though god knows they deserve worse). He is going around groveling about America exerting its values and standing its ground to defend its (and other people's) liberty and freedom.
Ryan should have ignored the snarky question and gone to the heart of the matter.

Such a shocker that the liberal media hack draws 'praise' from the AP. There was a clear agenda for her to help the 'jackass'. First moderator I've ever seen that spent more time spewing her own worthless opinions than letting the participants talk.

Praise? Huh?
Au contraire, Ass Press... Biden's act was far more cringe-worthy than praiseworthy.

Somebody with more patience than me needs to run some stats on that debate. We know Bite-me interrupted eighty some times. But how many times did Raddatz:
- allow each candidate to complete their answer?
- interrupt each candidate?
- press or follow up question each candidate?
- switch topic away from interrupted before they were done?
Any other stats???

We need to color code these various events on a time line. I firmly believe that a definite pattern will emerge of Biden and Ryan getting distinctly different treatment from Raddatz. And the proof would be objective... Just the stats, Ma'm.

Subjectively viewed, she interjected herself WAY too much into the debate. She did have a challenge with Biden out of control. But her response to this mayhem seemed to be to throttle Ryan more, not troublesome Biden, for some curious reason. I was very unhappy with her moderating. It was like a basketball game where the ref's were calling the game too close. And calling one-sided. I think if she would have backed off, Ryan would have HAD to step forward more assertively and backed Biden off more firmly. He brought up Biden's behavior once, but he seems mainly eager to get his zinger out --- ''I know you're under duress...'' than to actually get Biden to just cool it. As mentioned by some pundit, if Ryan HAD made a firm stand to settle Biden down, it would have been the most played clip of the entire debate.

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

U.S. military personnel has been on the ground in Yemen sifting through the aftermath of recent drone strikes, helping to retrieve bodies and data from the scene of a handful of weekend drone strikes carried out by the CIA, a source told Fox News on Tuesday. Separately, Fox News has learned that U.S. pilots provided airlift to Yemeni troops via Russian-built MI8 helicopters overnight for a separate ambush on a vehicle believed to be carrying top Al Qaeda militants. The missions follow the recent targeting of suspected terrorists in the country. On Monday, a suspected U.S. drone strike in southern Yemen killed 68 people,

The self-styled “civil rights” organization Southern Poverty Law Center, which despite mounting controversy maintains some links to government agencies, released a bizarre and factually challenged screed attacking critics and opponents of the deeply controversial United Nations plot known as Agenda 21. Apparently unfamiliar with the definition of basic words such as “conspiracy” and “theory,” or with the UN plan itself, the SPLC also lashed out at “activist groups,” “mainstream politicians,” voters, “extremists,” and others who question or oppose the UN agenda for what it calls “sustainable development” in the United States.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau.

As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture. But not everyone has accepted it. Cliven Bundy’s armed standoff with the National Park
