GOP Candidates Finally Say The Word "Muslim"

For me, this by far has been the best debate. It’s about time the candidates had the courage to say words like “Muslim”, “Islam” , and *GASP* “Jihadist”. Gingrich and Santorum win as the the most informed regarding the threat of Islam against United States.  Romney gave his usual slick answers, however I’m not convinced that he will do everything ...

Left Turns, Fireballs and GOP Debates

Why do people watch races? Of course it’s to see their favorite driver take the checkered flag, but also.. the crashes. Is that also why we watch political debates? In the early debates, we might have been watching traded-barb after traded barb to mentally score the good answers and the bad. Race fans watch the constant stream of left turns, on ...

The result of the South Carolina Debate

It is seriously time for the “Right” to move back to the right candidate. That candidate is Michele Bachmann. Last night, 11/12/11, Perry continued to stutter, but fortunately didn’t loose his place in his sentence. But he did overplay his debacle from Wednesday night. He can’t let it go and move on. Most people on Thursday said “That was rough…but, ...

Bachmann Campaign Releases CBS Email Indicating Bias at Debate

Hilarious Moment At CBS Debate: Rick Perry References His "Oops" Moment

I tell you what, the “relaxed” Perry isn’t all that bad.  Here he is at Saturday’s CBS debate referencing his “oops” moment from earlier in the week (at the CNBC debate) The difference between “stiff” Perry and “relaxed” Perry is night and day.  I’m not saying that this funnier side makes him qualified to be commander in chief, but you’ve ...

MUST WATCH: The Funniest Rick Perry "Oops" Video That's Out There

I think I may have seen the funniest video that parodies Rick Perry’s “oops” moment from the CNBC debate.  It’s pretty hilarious, but I should mention it has some potty language. (“B” word, “D” word, “S” word) So?  What did you think?  Funniest Rick Perry “oops” video of the week?  Or waste of time?  I appreciated the concept, and I ...

Michele Bachmann's Chinese Chips Comment Ignored

While Rick Perry’s “Oops” moment is one of the most reported from Wednesday night’s debate, Rep. Bachmann dropped a bomb on the stage that seems to have largely been ignored by the media – Chinese counterfeit computer components are showing up in U.S. defense weapon systems. As long ago as 2005, Bloomberg reported that fake computer components were causing failures ...

Rick Perry's Memorable Comment in Wednesday's Debate: "Oops"

The CNBC/Oakland University debate aired on Wednesday at 8pm and Rick Perry may have had the most painful, tragic and harmful few minutes in all of political debate history. The panel was asking the candidates about bringing both parties together to get things done. He started his answer by describing how an apolitical process brought manufacturing jobs to Texas.

The Herman Cain/ Newt Gingrich Sit-Down

Last night two GOP Presidential candidates squared off in what was referred to as a Lincoln-Douglas style debate. CSPAN really came through in a grand scale by airing the complete debate, and they should be commended for that decision. The debate was sponsored by the Texas Tea Party Patriot PAC, and was more of an informal sit-down discussion between Herman ...

Why It's Important to be Critical of our Candidates

CDNews is admittedly biased – not towards a party or candidate, but towards a set of ideals. We may spend more time researching the activities of the Obama administration because his policies are against everything we believe in, but we also have to spend time vetting our own candidates. This last week we happened to have a lot to look ...
