Republicans Will Be Debating in a Giant Bunker

You have to admire the Republicans for going to Boulder for their debate Wednesday.  It took some serious conservative backbone to descend on a town that stands for so much that Republicans do not. And now the GOP is keeping Boulder out.

The Colorado Republican Party is blaming CNBC for severely limiting the number of seats available at its Oct. 28 presidential debate at the University of Colorado at Boulder. But CNBC hasn't accepted the blame. Instead, strangely, it's not commenting. What gives?

How Its Own Media Prevents GOP Shift to the Middle

Michael Smerconish | Posted 08.16.2015 | Politics
Michael Smerconish

Lost in the short-term attention commanded by Donald Trump in the first Republican primary debate was a long-term problem for the party, created by questions that compelled the candidates to take positions at odds with a majority of Americans. While the debate questions were smart and sharp, they were also predicated on many conservative litmus tests. When the subjects of abortion, same-sex marriage, immigration and religion were aired, they elicited responses that, while pleasing to a core constituency, will be a tough sell in the general election. Adherents can get their news in a manner that validates their beliefs, notwithstanding that the objective of those outlets is to draw clicks from adherents based on controversy that would not exist in a world of compromise.

Don't Cry for Megyn Kelly

Pat Choate

Megyn Kelly is a smart lawyer, a tough litigator and a hard questioner who played Trump like a skilled violinist.
