    Once again the left puts their thumb on the scales with activist left-wing moderators.

    Why are liberals so afraid of a fair fight?

    Moderators of the presidential debates have been liberal for decades now and what we see now is no deviation from that trend by any stretch of the imagination.

    The fact is that if moderators were either conservative or at least centrist in the information age, we would never see another liberal president because they couldn't survive under honest scrutiny of any sort.

    Their are lots of things that the GOP does to equal to playing field through voter suppression,rigging voting machines,and create an illusion that outsourcing American jobs is a good thing but, when trying to get their own conservative voice as a
    presidential debate moderator is something that they never seem to be able to control.

    So, you are OK for ILLEGALS to vote. And could care less that my neighbor could vote for me.

    In presidential elections 60% of Americans that can vote actually vote.In off years in non-presidential years 50% (or less) of Americans that can vote will vote.As close as the last election was when Obama won or the two close elections Bush was involved in,when you add up the numbers that means only 30% (in a good turnout year) to 25% or less (in a bad turnout year) of the voting population decide the fate of the rest of us. Of all the industrialized countries in the world only South Korea's is lower.That is pitiful.

    SoD, these commentators are fighting go down in history as legitimate moderators whatever their persuasion is. They were also mutually agreed too, so your candidate must be comfortable with them. Now if they bomb (your candidate), don't provide everyone with more swill, eat it.

    I see you still haven't answered my question.

    Therefore, whether I CAN do better or not is irrelevant.

    The fact is that I don't have to... at least not with you ;)

    Since most of the debates will probably happen within the realm of liberalism, the moderators are most likely going to be liberal plants. I mean look what happen with all the GOP debates. The liberals were the moderators on those too.

    I've moderated debates (years ago) and the answer to your question is I've never seen a political debate that was moderated impartially. (I moderated at the high school level)
