Did Romney win the Debate of Stupid Questions?

Moron, "What do you dislike most about America?"
Romney, "I'm afraid I'm going to be at a loss for words..."

Moron, "What do you say to Roman Catholic leaders who would deny communion to those who support abortion rights?"
Romney: "I don't have anything to say to them. They can do whatever the heck they want!"

Moron, "Grade the Iraq war."
Huckabee, "You don't give grades in the middle of the test."

"Do you trust the mainstream media?" "Should Scooter Libby be pardoned?" "Is Karl Rove your friend?"
And then the end of all stupid questions, "Would it would be good for Bill Clinton to be back in the White House?"

And the dems refused to go on FoxNews?

Newsbusters has a great picture from the debate. Everyone in the crowd has a "Where did these idiots get these questions?" look.

According to drudgereport, Romney takes the debate with 35% of 48,000 votes at 1AM EST. Rudy had 21%. Ron Paul is the only other double digit with 16%. It will be interesting to see the polls tomorrow. According to some blog reactions I have seen, the people seem to like everything Romney said, with the exception of his abortion flip-flop. Other bloggers are asking when Newt and Fred will jump in. Bob McCarty actually declares them the winners of this debate.


  • "Well, my first thought is just how much more substantive that debate was than the Democratic debate, in terms of both specificity and grappling with deep, philosophical questions." -- Ryan Sager, New York Sun

    You may want to rethink this because he's right.

    Politico, the random public contributors via the www, and the infamously tough Chris Matthews came up with questions that weren't stereotypical debate questions, giving us an opportunity to both see the candidates think on their feet, and get to know them in ways the cookie cutter questions wouldn't have let us.

    A debate amongst so many participants isn't an easy thing to pull off. This format and these were good ideas for giving each an opportunity to provide a unique voice -- if they wanted to and were able to take advantage of the opportunity.
