Dear Readers: I am throwing up a quick post to allay Lonely Conservative’s concerns about the ability of CBS newsman Bob Schieffer to fairly treat both sides in the debate.
I would like to offer that Ramses V….I mean Schieffer….may actually go “Pharaoh’s Curse” on Obama!
I know I am a perpetual optimist who embraces cockiness, but here are my thoughts that I would like to interject as to why this may be the fairest debate of the four we will see.
1) Schieffer is reportedly pissed that Obama ignored an interview he wanted to do about Libya — and in return, it looks like a bulk of the debate questions will be about the very subject.
2) New York Magazine offers many reasons that the CBS veteran may prove to be more balanced, including — Schieffer came to Romney’s defense again when Harry Reid accused him of not paying taxes for a decade, comparing Reid to Joeseph McCarthy. “Isn’t this kind of like Joe McCarthy back in the era when he said, ‘I have in my hand the names of 400 people in the State Department who are communists’?” said Schieffer on Face the Nation. “It turns out he didn’t, and he was saying that the way to prove that they’re not is for them to come forward there. I mean, asking somebody to come forward just because there’s been an unsubstantiated charge, that’s a little thin to me.” New York
3) Shieffer did a monologue in which he totally ripped Obama. http://www.thehopeforamerica.com/play.php?id=5187
I will be on Legal Insurrection and Twitter tonight. Here’s to hoping for the belly dancers!
