I had to shake my head after listening to Chris Wallace, who just served as moderator during the 90-minute Republican debate on Fox News Channel, claim he was amazed that Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson did not insert themselves into the debate.
Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson did not insert themselves into the debate because Wallace geared nearly every question toward Mitt Romney, John McCain, and Mike Huckabee...and most of the questions involved attacks the three had made on each other.
It was more like Chris Wallace was attempting to get his "gotcha" moment and catch one of the three "front runners" making a mistake when he should have been trying to draw out the candidates on issues that are important to the electorate, both in New Hampshire and the rest of the country.
As far as ineptitude goes, this debate ranks right up there (or perhaps I should say down there) with the horrendous CNN-You Tube debates.
