Youtube videos asking the questions for the Republican debates! Total Mockery?
What a joke. All those republicans standing up there having to answer those goofy youtube questions on the debates late night. Anyone think it was completely weird? Seemed too "MTV" rock the vote. America is going to 'hell'
Why did no one raise the question of healthcare?
Who liked the new approval rating monitor going across as people were speaking? I can't believe even Republican women aren't pro choice!! Republicans are so whacked.
I'll admit that the questions were fair.... however they were (1) filtered by republicans, (2) controlled by youtube, (3) the same exact questions a moderator could have asked.
Youtube is Republican. Google is Republican. since when does a corporation get to sponsor the Republican debates? "Google presents the US Debates" ?!?!? WTF?
Republicans are just always pulling little tactics like this to keep themselves getting richer and richer. I wonder how many people on the debate panel have stock in google.

i can tell your father brought you up correctly. cannot argue with you on anything here. nothing on healthcare or education. just softball questions. huckabee cant even answer a question without bringing jesus into it. gulliani has to mention 911 all the time. romney the mormon flip flops, the guy on the end nobody knows his name...only ron paul makes sense and the rude rep. boo him. america is in hell and you young kids are gonna pay for it. very depressing if they win and our votes once again aren't counted.

Actually I kind of liked it rather then having just the questions that would have been asked by CNN.. CNN ruined the last dem debate by completely asking only questions to help Hillary and taking an obvious side with that worthless woman. I would have much rather heard these questions and even though some of them were not great questions on issues that should have been talked about, they were 100 times better then the set up questions that were asked at the Dem Debate.

I think the idea of Youtube debates is ridiculous personally. The people who actually sit down and make a video are usually not the most politically aware and have little of value to add to the debate.
Why does someone have to be pro choice just because they are a woman? Most of the women I know, republican and democrat are anti abortion.

I doubt the people chosen by CNN to ask the questions, were even republican. Like the gay soldier I believe CNN saw a opportunity to mock the republican primary candidates.
Along with the Hillary campaign worker Keith Kerr, the person who asked the question on the the belief of the bible (he couldn't even call it the bible he called it "this book". The questioner who said it was for "supposed Conservative Christians". Along with the WWJD question, about capital punishment. It appeared t me to be a hand picked hostile crowd. No diamond or pearl questions for the republicans.
But to the candidates credit, I believe they did a great job answering the questions asked, hardball questions you will NEVER see on any democrat debate.

For your information, hasn't it OCCURRED to you that those questions were CHOSEN for that debate?
The issues of the questions were right up their alley! Abortion, gay marriage rights, religion. The same, irrelevant, nonsensical, BULLSHIT, PERSONAL issues in our society that should not be decided by a central government but by the states! Romney and Giulliani were playing with each others' balls over frickin' gays in the military while refusing to tackle anything that matters such as the system, the economy and health care. Spotlight was too focused on Giulliani, Mccain and Romney. Aside from Ron Paul, who was pretty much the only one that made sense that night, the debates were a joke!Source(s): the debates

i'm not greatly surprised whilst any baby-kisser does this. The Bush administration had a reporter planted interior the WH press corps to lob softball questions, and payed quite a few newshounds to place in writing memories praising his regulations. Why might all of us be greatly surprised if Hillary does an identical factor. replace into she meant to symbolize genuine replace or some thing?

No questions on healthcare and no questions on the enviroment. Granted, those aren't exactly Republican strong points.
All of the Republicans have the same health care plan: "Don't Get Sick!"
All of the Republicans have the same enviromental policy: "I Don't Care!"

What you saw was real everyday people asking real everyday questions. Not what we are told by the media and the spin doctors to care about. Unpolished, real and meaningful to the person that asked them. It gets people to participate.
Unscripted and unproduced is what will really show us what the candidates are all about. We have had enough of the hip and slick and polish. Show us the real deal.

Didn't watch it. But some of those plain down home people were planted. CNN probably knew. It is disgusting the lows people will go.
