    Then a fucking buzzer?

    Some people and the mod ask(s) complicated questions - that of course have complicated answers.

    Blunt answers are brutal on face value to the laymen..

    "Debates" are free campaign ads, nothing more.

    I want a more vocal elaboration but ....

    So much for the notion that "republicans have no ideas" - which was BS from the beginning.

    Eh? I have no idea what you're talking about.

    But my point was that debates aren't where candidates voice their ideas - it's where they write the best-sounding and least meaningful 10 word answer to every possible question.

    It's not a Republican or Democrat thing. It's politics.

    It is despicable too. The sad fact is that it is like that because the American people have demanded it that way. Should they actually give REAL answers then what you would have is a grate debate and no one that seen it. People are so obtuse when it comes to their politicians that it is sad. And then they complain when they get what we have now....

    Oh the irony.
