Why not one question about the Republican plans to voucherize Medicare & turn Social Security over to Wall Street?
There was a Republican rumble in Iowa last night – as Fox so-called News hosted eight Republican candidates for their very own debate which featured not even one single question about the Republican plans to voucherize Medicare, turn Social Security over to Wall Street, and end all support to college students. The debate was filled with heated exchanges mostly about fluff – a fight between Michele Bachmann and Tim Pawlenty – and Newt Gingrich accusing the Fox News moderators of throwing “gotcha” questions at him.
It was a race to the bottom on taxes with Herman Cain pledging to cut the corporate tax rate to 25% - and then Rick Santorum immediately pledged to cut the corporate tax rate to zero. But the loudest applause of the night came when Ron Paul said we need to end our wars across the world and mind our own business with regard to Iran. To which Rick "don't Google my name" Santorum responded by saying if Iran gets a nuclear weapon – it would be the end of life as we know it.
Meanwhile – Mitt Romney played the role of the front-runner – stayed above the fray – refusing to engage anyone else on the stage – and instead focusing on Barack Obama the entire night. Although with Texas Governor Rick Perry likely jumping in the race tomorrow – Mitt may need to watch his back. Perry is a Texan – uses prayer as a policy tool – pollutes more than any other governor - and has executed more people than any other governor in modern history. Republicans may have just found their man.
