The GOP is set to hold nine debates for the primary season alone. That’s one debate per month of every single GOP candidate on stage trying to speak over the clamor.
Every candidate that makes the cut, anyway. Compared to a small handful of democratic candidates, the GOP contender list looks more like a wedding guest roster, complete with difficult decisions about who shouldn’t sit next to whom at dinner.
It makes sense then, that news outlets are only allowing front runners to participate in debates. And FOX News, of course, was kind enough to allow the JV team to have their own kids-table debate.
But there’s a major flaw with this strategy: it eliminates the possibility of dark horses. One such dark horse is being kept from the competition, and the reasons are despicable. Do you know whom I am talking about?
Carly Fiorina is one of the few candidates to emerge from the FOX News debate with a clear win. Even if it was the JV debate, she clearly stood out from the pack, giving the impression she could soon join the ranks of the varsity team.
However, despite her prowess, is any media attention being paid to her? Hardly. And the mainstream media is going to serious efforts to see her cut out of the discussion. You’ll fume over what CNN just did!
In order to keep Fiorina from qualifying for their debate, they’re using polling data from BEFORE the FOX News debate. In other words, they’re using outdated numbers that don’t factor in any of the credibility and popularity she earned, depriving her of her rightful place with the men.
It seems odd that the liberal media would hold back a woman, considering their tireless uproar over the “war on women.” What in the world could be their motive in muting Carly?
Two words: Hillary Clinton.
What happens if Hillary, the apple of the liberal media’s eye, is forced to run against another woman? That pretty much deflates her entire feminist campaign strategy, doesn’t it?
