Bloomberg/WaPo GOP debate, October 11, 2011 (Perry, Romney, Cain, Bachmann...)

COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

Tonight Bloomberg and the Washington Post will be conducting yet another worthless GOP debate. Feel free to leave comments below before, during or after the debate. This post will be updated after a transcript becomes available. This debate stands to be just as bad and as much of a public disservice as all the others.

Participants: Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, Michelle Bachmann, Jon Huntsman, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, and Rick Santorum. Questions will be asked by Karen Tumulty, Charlie Rose, and Julianna Goldman.

Suggested reading: debates for past examples of bogus debates and each of the names in the last paragraph except for the last two.

UPDATE: A transcript is here. The debate was just about economics. There's no mention of immigration, which is a disservice to the U.S. due to the fact that immigration is a fundamental issue that impacts the U.S. and state economies in various ways.
