First 2007 Republican Debate Questions and Answers

There is a full verbatim transcript of the questions and answers from last night's debate now posted at MSNBC.com - here.

And it appears that Wednesday's post was a fairly accurate predictor of the questions that would be fielded - and even the evolution question was listed as a likely question.

The 2007 debate season is off to a great start for the Republicans (cough cough NOT cough).

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. - As Republican presidential contenders meet for their first debate on Thursday (live on MSNBC TV and MSNBC.com at 8 p.m. ET), social conservatives, a powerful force within the GOP, face the possibility that the party will nominate a candidate next year who isn't really one of them.

Arizona Sen. John McCain and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, front-runners in most national polls of Republicans, have clashed with conservatives in the past on abortion, immigration and gay rights.

And former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who only five years ago said he supported the "substance" of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade abortion decision, has altered his views to become what he now calls "firmly pro-life."

Watching this group of flopping GOPers was a riot. In my view not a single candidate on the stage last night has a real chance of winning this election based on what we've seen so far.

Contrary to your "flopping GOPers" sneer, two things were quite clear from this debate

That Republicans are heads and shoulders above Dems in courage department for agreeing to a debate moderated by a guy that is hostile to Republicans

and Chris Matthews just continued to demonstrate his own craven credentials as a buffoonish custard brain. HE was the loser of this "debate."

civil behavor:

Amazing that even a neo con still believes that MSM cable "journalist" types favor a progressive ideology.

These ranting pundits are so far removed from anything a real progressive supports it's laughable.

Because the "conservative" has moved so far to the right they are barely recognizable as much more than fundamentalist militarists. Liberals are the real conservatives today. The GOP has been hijacked by fundies and oligarchs. Why a portion of the 90% serfdom class contnues to support these fearmongers is beyond me.
