Disgrace: CNN Democratic debate February 21, 2008 - 02/21/08

... debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will be a disgrace. Some part of that is due to the fact that one of the questioners is Jorge Ramos of Univision. He's not only a supporter of cultural separatism, he's not a citizen - by choice - despite having lived here for over a decade. And, if any immigration questions are asked they'll be meaningless: everyone on stage is on the same side....

Given the use of those...

... (via this). Bearing in mind that Barack Obama was a University of Chicago lecturer in constitutional law for several years (link), let's see if he has a firm grasp of the Constitution: Obama took questions from the audience for more than half an hour.

If John McCain is the nominee, will immigration be off the table? - 02/02/08

... Democratic candidate (whether Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton) on their immigration positions?

... Chronicle offers this: Sen. Barack Obama easily won the African American vote in South Carolina, but to woo California Latinos, where he is running 3-to-1 behind rival Sen.

... supporting various candidates such as Barack Obama, Mike Huckabee, and occasionally others. Now, certainly, many or most of those supporters might not be socks, but it's awful strange to find at least three white women around 50 years of age who suddenly showed up at a thread by Atlantic blogger Marc Ambinder about a Barack Obama speech and identified themselves by their race, gender, and age...

Yet another Democratic debate was held yesterday on MSNBC, featuring Brian Williams and Tim Russert as moderators (transcript link).

It also featured three extremely lightweight questions about immigration, with...

... Edwards, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama tour the countryside telling prospective voters just how bad things are, some people in Capitol City are living it up: those lucky few who get to dine at the U.S. House of Representatives' own eating establishments.

... both." Do I need to add that if Barack Obama had said the same thing even many "liberals" would consider him a racist? Then, asked an apparently weak question by Ray Suarez about driver's licenses for illegal aliens, Hillary responded again with a call to pass "comprehensive immigration reform". She could save herself from saying the same thing over and over by just holding up a sign.

CNN, the most Soviet name in "news" (plants at Democratic debate) - 11/17/07

Thursday's CNN Democratic debate featured more than wimpy questions and a CNN-approved lie. Some of the audience members who asked questions weren't just regular Joes and Janes.

They're going to have a chance to ask these Democratic presidential candidates...

... (youtube.com/watch?v=UQXYYIdjjFg via this), Barack Obama does a partial Hillary Clinton on driver's licenses for illegal aliens, before unequivocally supporting them (followed only by, "but, I am going to be fighting for comprehensive immigration reform"; the "but" part generated peals of laughter from the audience).
