To The Daily Sun,
I was privileged to be able to watch the entire CNN Democratic Debate the other night. I was intrigued and not in the least surprised that those candidates actually debated the current issues. It was truly a much needed breath of fresh air during this very lengthy political season. After watching the Republicans debate it was like going from the squabbling kids' table to the adults' table.
We've been over-exposed to the GOP/Tea Party candidates for months now, to where it's become truly mind-numbing and repetitious. Sadly, we haven't learned much in the way of concrete policy from the GOP/Tea Party since they and their sugar daddies have started spending their millions on their campaigns.
No doubt those on the right will try to spin last week's debate in a very negative light. Most people will be able to see through their usual smokescreen. Each one of the GOP/Tea Party ad buys, interviews and debates continue to convince us of something very basic. What might that be? It's that their shallow remarks, hollow promises, showboating, chest-thumping and misstatements (sometimes outright lies) show us why those GOP/Tea party candidates will only see the inside of the White House if they're invited to dinner.
Bravo to the Democratic candidates who debated. It was one of the most informative, intelligent, astute, discerning, insightful and perceptive debates that we've seen in some years. Many issues were covered. Actual, relevant issues connected to what matters to Americans. What a refreshing change from all of the misleading yada yada yada from the GOP/Tea Party candidates.
The CNN Democratic Debates held my interest for three hours. Thanks to the moderators, and thanks to those people who were able to ask questions via Facebook. That added a much needed expanded dynamic to the debate.
