You know this is a great idea by how hysterical the lamestream media is getting over it.

Beautiful!

So I guess the GOPasaur primary debates will only be on FOX.

Seems about right, since FOX viewers are the only ones interested.

The Democratic primary debates will be on CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, PBS, TBS, TNT, SCIFY, FX, USA, Animal Planet, Court TV, etc, etc, etc.

It's a blessing that most of the nation will be shielded from another con clown show. Now, the networks need to react by not mentioning them during newscasts.

And that proves what? The Nazi Party managed to insure that their stories were carried by everyone too. At first it was voluntary. But the number of non-Nazi outlets shrank, while the Nazi ones grew. Eventually they were down to just one that had not become a government mouthpiece. It disappeared too.

The communist had a similar history.

There will be no more Debates after the CNN and NBC destroyed the process of fair and balanced Debate last Fall.
Obama Operatives posing as Moderators destroyed the credibility of the Debate forum.

Both the Democratic and Republican parties have forgotten what their purpose is........to serve the American people. Incumbents of both parties are too absorbed in serving themselves to give any thought to doing the job they were elected to do. Why would any intelligent person waste their time watching debates that have no meaning? How can you tell when politicians are lying? When their lips move! If the American people have any sense at all there will not be a single incumbent left in office after the next round of elections, Democrat or Republican. They ALL need to be fired.

Does this mean I might have to miss the Republican primary debates? Then what is there to live for? I may even have to spend the time enjoying myself!

Nope, you automatically lose the argument when you pull the Nazi card.

What would that accomplish? The Dems would be replaced by Republicans, and the Republicans would be replaced by Dems. We'd still have the same dysfunctional divide we have today.

I only watch debates for the entertainment value. I already know who I'm voting for long before any scripted staged debate.

At least the new meat coming in will have gotten a message that "business as usual" will not keep them employed. It would be a starting point to steer this train back onto the right track IMHO. Maybe we should start a new party based on sanity and call it the Republicratic party.

NBC and its affiliates have a proven track record of selective editing that promotes deceit and racism.

Despicable (bordering on criminal) behavior by a so-called national media outlet.

CNN has been a leftist network since the days of Bubba the Philanderer.

The GOP needs neither.

The gop needs voters. They don't have them, either.

Look at the states which have term limits, which essentially does the same thing with no better results.

Unfortunately there is an unlimited supply of "business as usual" people who will run for office even if they know they only get 4 or 6 or 8 years max.

As for the US Congress, the pay & perks & power trips are simply too irresistible.

The Republicans do not need to be in debates with Dems. they get butchered by impartial broadcasters. They need Repub broadcasters drilling the candidates on what they will or won't do. And a conservative a tthe very least needs to come out of the next presidential election as the standard bearer. they are not going to get progressive votes anyway. Don't need them anymore. I don't even watch progressive in anything including sports. And even don't go to movies and pay for political activist actors. The contamination is so widespread it is like zombie land. The conservative candidate needs a mouth like Christie also.it is a shame he is on the liberal side of Repub politics.

The GOPasaurs can't win with just the conservative vote. There simply aren't enough straight old white christian men & their subservient wives left anymore.

Unless they can find a way to reach the young, women, gays, Hispanics, etc, they'll never see the inside of the White House again, except maybe on the visitors tour.
