  •  Bachman used R "debate" game of overtalking (12+ / 0-)

    by just repeating her lies and refusing to let viewer  HEAR opponent.  Bad manners -- constantly drowns out any actual fact discussion.   R debate schools teach the tactic.

    I watched it and was reminded again why THIS moderator is a failure.   Kirsten was polite and lost out because he let a nutso congress gal representing FEW voters --- rudely overtalk a SENATOR who is one of two representing a whole state.    Lack of respect -- reminded me why I hardly ever watch MTP anymore.    

    D's must learn, like some have, to demand that they be allowed to speak = or refuse to be demeand guests on his show.

    •  Why is Nancy Pelosi never on MTP? (7+ / 0-)

      Or have I missed her on MTP debating anyone from the Right?  I can come up with other women in Congress on our side who would have been better up against Bachmann.  Elizabeth Warren would have put Bachmann in her place.  Or Barbara Boxer?  I like Kirsten, but she was very weak and unprepared.  

      No, I think Gregory knows exactly who to call to his panel from the Dem side.  There's no excusing Gregory.  He's a jerk.

      I wish all Dems on those panels would start their spiel by saying, new rule: If you interrrupt or overtalk me, you lose the debate.  Ok?  If you can only win by not letting my point of view get heard, then you're the loser.  Oh also?  If you change the subject.  If I make a point and you can't answer, you change the subject, that means you lost.
