----
Americans that spent their Saturday evening watching the Republican presidential debate witnessed the height of media hypocrisy.






Former Clinton adviser turned ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos actually asked attendees - with a straight face no less - if marital infidelity should be an issue in the campaign (video follows with highlights and commentary):






GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Should voters consider marital fidelity when making their choice for president? And Governor Perry, in South Carolina this week, you said this is an important issue. Why?






Imagine a man who served former President Bill Clinton asking that question of Republican candidates in 2011. Didn't anyone at ABC News

  • Why Republicans hold a debate moderated entirely by left-leaning Democrats is beyond me. Should Democrats be allowed to participate in moderating? Absolutely. Should it be Diane Sawyer and George "It's O.K. for my boss, but not for you" Stephanopoulos only? No.

    Honestly, if I'd been one of the people on the stage, I'd have thrown the question straight back at Stephanopoulos: "Well, George, as the spokesperson for Bill Clinton, I'm sure you have some strong opinions on this i More..

      If by "managed well," you mean that his economic team fueled a bubble economy that collapsed just as Clinton was leaving office, that he undermined American jobs in favor of cheap imports to the benefit of large corporations, and that he helped orchestrate the rise of the Chinese economy to undermine our own with a pegged currency, then, yes, Clinton was brilliant for the American economy. We're still suffering the hangover of his actions to this day.

    • @Catalytic "balanced the budget and erased the deficit" No, Congress did. Remember, Gingrich and the GOP did it in four years when the Dems said it couldn't be done in seven. Clinton's budget was 200 billion deficits far as the eye could see until the GOP tackled it. Check for yourself. And remember, it was Bill Clinton and his wife who tried to engineer a federal takeover of the health care system -- a plan that would have sent the government's finances into the stratosphere. Sound fa More..

      Hardly. Clinton fought tooth and nail to avoid making serious budget cuts. Don't you remember the government shutdowns in the 1990s? That was because Clinton wanted to spend more, but the Republicans led by Gingrich refused.

      The balanced budget happened for two main reasons. First, the U.S. was able to cut back on military spending after the end of the Cold War. Clinton benefited from this, but it wasn't his management that earned any credit for it. Reagan put the nails in th More..
