that was because the Vice President was very specific and precise in his
comments and Ryan was not. Ryan tried to talk in broad sweeps and grand
policies instead of the specific information people watching the debate wanted
to hear about. Raddatz was trying to get Ryan to commit himself to the
ticket's priorities and policies. If Ryan had been as specific as the Vice
President was being, Raddatz would not have had to challenge him.
The tale of the tape reveals that Raddatz challenged Ryan nine times and Biden
only once.She was very specific with questions pointed at Ryan but only
once asked the Obama administration to defend their policies.So, if you
liked Biden you would have liked Raddatz as well.Be it Libya, Iran,
unemployment, abortion, the budget or past voting record, it was all directed at
Ryan. I don't have to guess who Martha voted for in 2008 or who
she's supporting this year.
Just like with many other things...Let a woman do it, and it will get done
the right way.
Finally, a moderator who got the job done.The last guy was awful.
