Suggested Presidential Debate Questions For President Obama

The July 26 “Houston Chronicle”, page A6 “Debate topics, dates set” reports “the committee sponsoring this fall’s three presidential debates” has set dates, locations and topics (domestic policy and foreign policy) for all three debates.

In a fair (Forget “perfect”!) world, the 2012 Presidential debates would feature equally tough questions for both candidates about their presidential qualifications and, for Obama, specific questions about his record as president.

Realistically – given the near total abdication of 2008 mainstream media and debate “moderators” to seriously challenge then-Senator Obama about his presidential qualifications choosing instead to allow him to spout empty rhetoric – there’s no reason to believe mainstream media will not again roll over and replicate their performance in 2012, this time probably chalking it up to “deference to the office of the presidency”.
