THE DE­BATES PILE UP

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Yet an­other Repub­li­can de­bate al­ready looms: The or­ga­ni­za­tional hon­ors go to the Fox Busi­ness Net­work and The Wall Street Jour­nal, which have joined forces to present a prime time de­bate in Mil­wau­kee on Nov. 10. The moder­a­tors in­clude the very apt Fox Busi­ness News an­chors Neil Cavuto and Maria Bar­tiromo, and Wall Street Jour­nal editor-in-chief Ger­ard Baker for the main event. The “un­der­card” bout fea­tures Fox busi­ness cor­re­spon­dents San­dra Smith, Tr­ish Re­gan plus Ger­ald Seib, Wash­ing­ton bureau chief will mod­er­ate the un­der­card event.

“Both de­bates will fo­cus on jobs, taxes, and the gen­eral health of the econ­omy, as well as do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional pol­icy is­sues, or­ga­niz­ers say. The prime­time de­bate will be fol­lowed by a one-hour spe­cial edi­tion of “Cavuto” while John Stossel will host a live mid­night show fea­tur­ing the Lib­er­tar­ian re­ac­tion to the de­bate with a stu­dio au­di­ence. The Lib­er­tar­i­ans may not be too happy. “No won­der the two old par­ties’ ap­proval rat­ings are at an all-time low, Demo­cratic and Repub­li­can politi­cians in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. are lav­ish­ing tax­payer money on their K Street pals while rais­ing taxes and print­ing money to pay for it, de­valu­ing the dol­lar, and sell­ing the rest of the coun­try down the river,” de­clares,” Lib­er­tar­ian Na­tional Com­mit­tee chair­man
