Must See TV: CNBC Moderators Heatedly Embarrass Themselves | Eastern North Carolina Now

    CNBC came to play for a 'political cage match', where the Republican presidential candidates, as the Democrat media wished, devour one another. Then the CNBC moderators, and with great prejudice, got their collective ass kicked by the far smarter Republicans seeking their party's nomination.

    As I mentioned, CNBC is a business channel and in that context they are an admirable reporting institution. Tonight, if they had concerned themselves with business /economy questions for the the Republican candidates, they may would have distinguished themselves; however, sadly, they did not. Instead, the night may have reached a new low in debate moderators, where it was their intent to bait the candidates with 'gotcha questions', challenged them to tear at the character of their fellow Republicans, and other assorted non sequiturs of silliness, which, rather than put the candidates in a poor light, which was their purposeful intent, cast a terrible glow upon themselves; one that shown bright, lifting them from the political shadows to reveal their Democrat partisanship as their primary objective.

    I, personally, felt embarrassed for them as they revealed themselves as not only in the tank for the Democrat cause, but wholly unprepared to the task of standing toe to toe which a well populated stage of Republican candidates for their party's nomination, who were well prepared, and, alternately, bested their moderators at every verbal turn. The questions prepared by the NBC were more like Democrat 'talking points' as their 'Group Think' logic would regard the purpose of a Republican than about the advertised point of the debate - business, the economy.

    Instead, Moderator Carl Quintanilla, a decent guy when reporting business, was completely outmatched by his Republican opponent when asking his Democrat prepared questions, and Becky Quick was unprepared to accept the challenge of handling these well honed candidates on their turf - the field of debate. And, sadly, it was CNBC's political reporter John Harwood, who appeared to get his butt kicked harder than the rest, if only because of the belligerent nature of his questions.

    This debate was a full contact sport as preferred by the Democrat media parent of CNBC, NBC, and the videos that I have here and will add well reflect that reality. If you like NFL football, you would have thoroughly enjoyed the intellectual jar of this debate ... unless, possibly, you are a committed partisan Democrat, where the truth is never an issue. For the me, and others like me, we thrive on the truth, are nurtured by it, and watching good men and woman stand on that principle as if it is the cornerstone of their existence was encouraging.

    And don't all principled people need encouragement. Especially in a week, when the Democrat Department of Justice turned a blind partisan eye to the IRS Scandal and absolveed a guilt ridden Lois Lerner, without a real investigation, while the unprincipled Democrat media cooed at how Hillary B. Clinton bested the Republican led Select Benghazi Committee, who were simply seeking the truth of what happened at Benghazi - a truth that Hussein Obama and the criminal AG Eric Holder has conspicuously stonewalled and shielded. A truth that has revealed that the Democrat media's darlings - Hillary and Hussein - have continuously and contemptuously lied about to Americans, as well as the families of the four brave Americans, who died that night of September 11, 2012.

    After these last few cynical weeks in a city run mostly by political whores - Washington, DC - it was blessing to witness good triumph over a dishonest, unprincipled arm of the Democrat media - NBC. It was encouraging indeed.
