This one is being called a 'forum'. I'm not sure how much of a difference there'll be between it and a regular debate.


Location: Milford, New Hampshire

Network: Fox News

Time: 8:00 P.M. EST

Candidates:

Rudy Giuliani
Mike Huckabee
John McCain
Mitt Romney
Fred Thompson

Uninvited candidates:

Duncan Hunter
Ron Paul

Moderator: Chris Wallace

Webstream: www.foxnews.com



This is not the general primaries thread. General primaries talk goes here.

    If by forum do you mean that the audience will be asking questions?

    There will be no audience. It'll be recorded on a bus.

    Milford? Seriously? Milford is like the crummiest place ever. Why would they have a debate there?

    So does the GOP pulling their support for this have any real effect on it?

    Bump because this will be on in a few hours.

    I don't think dropping support will have an effect on the debate.

    Well, they dropped Ron Paul which means that everyone gets to parrot classical talking points with no relevance to the country or common sense. I'm kind of interested just how far afield they get this time.

    I think the opposite is the case. Because Paul is gone, they can't use him as a whipping boy for sound blurbs. They'll have to debate the small differences between each other without breaking it up with the random anti-war screaming.

    Plus, Ron Paul is craaaaaazy. :P

    Isn't it nuts that Huckabee is going creamed for doing something admirable? I mean raising taxes for education in a woefully uneducated state? Christ, what a monster.

    So you'd decrease future cost of living increases by changing the index?


    Nonononononono, I'd switch the index, which would reduce the future increases.

    Wow, thanks for that incoherent double-talk, Fred.

    They are. Big fancy words that they scarcely understand mixed together at a simpler and simpler level, with a lot of mutual backscratching to make them all seem nice in the end.
