The Democrats’ candidate shows up bored, fumbling, and unprepared …and who do many Democrats blame? the moderator! Why? Because apparently they expected the moderator to run interference for their candidate and the moderator didn’t bail out their bored, fumbling and unprepared candidate! Instead moderator Jim Lehrer did the unthinkable – he let the candidates debate.
When I watch a debate, I want to see the debaters discuss the issues — I am not interested in hearing what the moderator has to say (he is not on the ballot.) If the debate is moving, issues are being discussed, and their is fairness in time distribution, and the candidates are debating, the moderator should — as Jim Leher did – step back and let them go.
