Call it a hunch.
Everything liberal is wrong and everything wrong is liberal, right?

You know for followers of a party that's been in just about unopposed control for nearly a decade and did everything they wanted to do, you guys really have an odd sense of persecution.

With Time being the mirror image of that.


Again, just a hunch.

Just a bit of levity on a Friday night. But seriously, what was the Time.com rating from last nights debate? I can't find it and I am curious. It was billed as the first one-on-one debate and the "Big Showdown" before Super Tuesday.

Meh. If you compare all of TIME's report cards, for both parties' candidates, for all the debates, then everyone but Paul out of the 6 still in the running (McCain, Huck, Romney, Paul, HRC, Obama) in fact has a "B" average (they've never given Paul higher than a "C+"). Hillary and Obama have received "C-" and "C+" before, McCain and Romney have received "A-" before, Huckabee's received "B+" before, etc.

So then who do you think won the Republican debate? I'm just going to say, thats also how I looked like every time anyone said that McCain, Romney or Huckabee won the Republican debate. What a coincidence.

Yes, you were clearly right.

Pesky facts.

My point is that you have predicted Paul to win in every state so far, despite him clearly having no chance in those states, and have declared him the winner in almost every (if not all) debate. If you're not realistic, it makes it much harder to take your perspective seriously.

Well the reason he has won every single debate is because he speaks the truth about Iraq. You can't really win a debate if you use our soldiers to gain political popularity nor if you unconditionally back such a horrible war. So if someone else is anti-war in the debate, then it could be that they can also win. But since you think it is ridiculous for anyone to assume that Ron Paul won the last debate, who do you think won?

I think Paul's biggest problem in these debates is his delivery. Everything is said in an exasperated tone, and quite frankly, that ain't gonna win debates. What he says might be true, but if he sounds like a frustrated old man saying it, no one's going to pay attention.

^ That's been my impression too, from what I've seen of him in the debates. He has this recurrent undertone of Oh for God's sake! I'm surrounded by idiots!! which however much a given listener might privately agree with him, just isn't in keeping with what most would see as "Presidential" bearing. There are few things more insufferable then people who incessantly carry on about how insufferable everyone but them is.

McCain also can tend to come across as more peevish and spiteful than is good IMO, but not nearly so much.

I agree. He's too much of a straight talker instead of a nice talker. He should be more of a salesperson when he speaks.
