CNN to Team with Google for Next GOP Debate

by Scott Ott for ScrappleFace · 48 Comments · · Print This Story Print This Story

(2007-11-29) — After the success of last night’s CNN/YouTube debate, the Cable News Network today announced that for the next Republican presidential debate it would also team with YouTube’s parent company, Google, to do background research on the questioners.

“We were excited to learn about Google this morning,” said the CNN source. “We want to introduce this amazing service to the rest of America. Our viewers will be stunned to learn that you can just enter a name in a little box and press a button to get all of this information.”

Among the videos submitted by ordinary Americans for last night’s intramural GOP scrimmage were questions from supporters of Democrat presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Edwards and from a union activist for the United Steel Workers, which has endorsed Mr. Edwards.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who moderated the debate, apologized because the network was not aware that many of the other questioners had “no legitimate connection with the Democrat National Committee or its affiliates.”

“Now that we know about Google,” said Mr. Cooper, “we can do a better job of screening to make sure that Democrats are represented more adequately.”

    What I wanna know is, did Scott submit his YouTube video for the CNN debate yesterday?

    Keeping the ‘plants’ out and away from the debates should be easy - perhaps if they started piping in Rush Limbaugh over the loudspeakers, for 30 minutes before the debate, they might gain some converts and get rid of the rest?

    CNN needs to team with for their next Demoncrap debate.

    It was a vast right-wing conspiracy I tell ya … to make CNN look bad!

    Report: Republican questioners were declared Obama and Edwards voters
    But we didn’t know. We’re just an investigative news organization.

    Bill Clinton Flatly Asserts He Opposed War at Start…
    “I supported the President when he asked the Congress for authority to stand up against weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.” Bill Clinton at the 2003 commencement at Tougaloo College. And that’s just one instance. But don’t worry, the Donks are good at spinning things to defend their Messiah Bill.

    This not-so-subtle example of political dirty tricks doesn’t surprise me in the least.

    I apologize for the bandwidth, here, but I have text of an email I just received that is both pertinent to this article and illustrative of the Democrat play book and I feel all of you need to
    see it. Last year I responded to a spam email from the Democrat Party thinking it might come in handy some day. I encourage any ambitious readers to be creative with the following information and to share their efforts with all of us. Without further ado:

    For a few months, we’ve had Democratic Party “trackers” recording hundreds of hours of Republican candidates in the field. From event to event, we’ve got footage of some pretty revealing moments. Some are regular Americans(Ha! Italics, mine)putting a candidate on the spot with a tough question. Others are blatant contradictions. A lot of it is just the standard candidate stump speech.

    The footage isn’t high quality, but it’s straight from the field — and there is a lot of it. Since there’s more than my team can realistically process, we’ve decided to throw it up on the web and put the Party’s most powerful asset — you — to work.

    As soon as a tracker leaves an event in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, or wherever they’re taping a Republican candidate, they’ll head to a computer and upload it directly to a special section of called FlipperTV. That means you’ll have a chance to go through the latest video the same time we do.

    Nobody has ever done anything quite like this before, but with the Internet giving ordinary Americans like you access to the tools you need to change an election with the click of a mouse, we need to make sure you have everything you need to do just that. The video is yours — you can just let us know what you find, or you can take it, re-mix it, add music, and make your very own ad out of it. It’s up to you.

    Take a look:

    Back in March, I told you about our program to hold the GOP accountable for everything they say on the 2008 campaign trail. We launched a website dedicated to the Republican presidential hopefuls, and created a rapid response group in PartyBuilder that people like you could join to get the latest campaign news.

    This video is part of that program — and part of the work that the Democratic Party is able to do because of your help.

    Take a look at the video, forward your favorite clips to your friends, and make a contribution of $20 to keep this and other programs going strong through the 2008 election:

    What are Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, John McCain and Fred Thompson telling voters in Iowa and New Hampshire?

    I’ll give you a hint — it’s not what they’re going to say in tonight’s Republican debate.

    As the Democratic Party’s Research Director, I spend a lot of time watching what the candidates say when they aren’t on CNN or Fox News. Believe me, they’re like entirely different people when they’re speaking to just a few dozen people in Des Moines or Manchester and don’t think the cameras are rolling.

    But don’t just take my word for it — watch the video yourself, and let us know right away if you find something noteworthy:

    People like to say that Democrats have a tactical advantage because we’re better at using the Internet. Let’s show them just how far ahead we actually are. (Can you say “challenge”, people?)

    Let’s get started,

    Mike Gehrke
    Research Director, DNC

    P.S. — Be sure you join the PartyBuilder group on that page so we can get you the latest clips everyone finds.

    I posted a couple of comments in parentheses, but the rest is the actual email.
    OK, have at it friends!

    Well, Beerme, it looks like the spirit of of Big Brotherism is alive and well among the rank-and-file liberals who see their political party as their personal savior.

    I’m telling you the day is coming when it goes beyond even this to going after those who dare oppose the left-wing utopia that Demoncrappers want to impose on the American people. Conservatives will be hauled before the radical left’s Grand Puhpah “Progressive” Inquisitors and made to account for every alleged violation of the politically correct code of conduct … their new “Americanism”.

    I understand an honest people’s desire “to get it from the horse’s mouth”, but leave it to those radical left-wingers to ultimately twist and re-interpret what is being said by Republicans. They won’t be content to let Republicans mean what the say because these left-wing Nazis will pour countless hours into saying what Republicans/conservatives mean … nothing but spin. If the videos were posted without their own commentary in a neutral context, that would be newsworth. Instead it will be used for left-wing propaganda purposes. But two can play at that game if they want to up the ante.

    We already have a commie/socialist Big Brother watch on our local newspaper. There is an entire leftist blog devoted to trashing conservatives who write letters to the editor which criticize the idiocies and insanity of Bush-hating liberals.

    I know from personal experience Big Brother “progressives” are little more than a bunch of busybody fascists who cover themselves with the fig-leaf of “the people’s right to know.” Yeah, the people’s right to know what their propaganda spin is. These demagogues seem more than happy to advance the art of the “politics of personal destruction” in order to achieve their partisan hegemony. And it has little to do with sarcastic humor. We’re talking a mean-spirited destruction of ordinary people’s reputations and livelihoods with liberal lies.

    The Democrat plants were proof of “the vast right wing conspiracy.” It was masterminded by George Bush and “Mr. Big” himself…Rush Limbaugh. They set the whole thing up. Just like they are causing man-made global warming, steered Katrina into New Orleans, and are hiding Elvis Presley in a safe house somewhere on Area 51, with bigfoot too.

    I’m sure the democrats will come up with something almost that stupid to explain it away and the drive-by media will just swallow it and move on.

    Former Congressman Henry Hyde has died at the age of 83. In the coming days witness our loving, compassionate and understanding friends on the other side of the aisle spew their hate and venom for him. Congressman Hyde was instrumental in passing the articles of impeachment in the U.S. House against Bill “the Pizza Man” Clinton.

    Well, I watched the debate last night and I don’t give a rip where the questions came from…they were questions that needed to be asked and that finally got answered. It was by far, the best debate that I have seen yet. FINALLY they got some hard questions on immigration. I am a Fred man more then ever, after that debate, and I will NOT be voting if Giuliani is the candidate.

    I was thrilled to hear the hard questions that let me know, as a conservative, where these guys really stand. I haven’t heard it until last night. I was not impressed with Huckabee at all and McCain just came off as an angry little man. Ron Paul actually made sense on a lot of things. Too bad he is such a nut. All in all, I think that Fred was the most presidential. I just wish he didn’t look so tired and old. He ain’t that old!!

    There’s a gal here in Wilmington driving around with a car that’s got a primer paint job. She has spray painted it with signs that say “Ron Paul 2008″. Everytime I see it it makes me smile. She is behind her convictions!

    I took a look at FlipperTV and I wonder if this isn’t the same Flipper that was on the Sean Hannity radio show a few years ago. Does anyone know?

  • 14 da Bunny // Nov 29, 2007 at 12:26 pm

    Well, the “horticulture” debate involved a lot more “plants” than just the questioners, as evidenced by the cheers of the decidedly liberal audience members every time RuPaul opened his mouth. “Cuckoos” of a feather flock together.

    I’m still a huge Duncan Hunter fan, and a strong admirer of Tom Tancredo, as well. I guess I’ll have to decide on one of the other more viable candidates one o’ these days. Imo, someone needs to light a fire under Fred, Mitt’s been all over the map in his positions, Rudy is way too liberal on abortion, gun control, immigration, etc., can anyone else here say “McCain-Feingold” without getting angry[?], and Huckabee seems to think that he’s on an extended audition for “The Last Comic Standing” with all his one-liners. But, I will vote for the Republican nominee, unless it’s RuPaul, because any of them are better than Hillary Marxist Clinton, Osama Obama, or the Silky Pony.

  • 15 Beerme // Nov 29, 2007 at 12:34 pm


    I think not. It is a DNC creation just for the purpose of showcasing little Republican faux pas and misspeaking incidents, in an effort to make the candidates look bad.

    For my money, that job seems pretty easy. None of the candidates excites me much. I will say that Ron Paul, for all his quirkiness and anti-war stance, is the ONE candidate that strikes me as believing in what he says and saying what he believes. In short, he’s honest. I still can’t vote for him but he is the only candidate I see as honest on either side (I honestly don’t think Kucinich even really believes that stuff he’s selling but maybe he is the only other one…).

    That debate last night was a shameful exercise in CNN and the libs using a liberal-friendly platform to ask silly questions that don’t matter to real conservatives but might fluster the candidates and make them look bad. See the link to the Fred Barnes article for further details on this liberal chicanery.

    At least the Republicans did the debate in enemy territory, anyway. The Dems wouldn’t do a debate on Fox and they wouldn’t have been subject to this type of partisan sleaziness. Chickens!

    I wonder how many folks have a little time to record Democrat Party candidates (there are so many that it would be a daunting task) to stock a new website. Right now it’s not active except to hear from volunteers.

    Of course the domain might be available for sale but proceeds would be donated to one or more truly conservative causes. A Democrat wanting to get the name out of circulation would be on the horns of a terrible dilemna….keep it alive or buy it to close it down and finance “the enemy”.

    More examples of liberal liars:

    At the CNN/Republican debate we find clear examples of liberals lying about being “undecided” or “potential” Republican voters. The following are people who were trying to pass themselves off as “undecided Republican voters” yet now we find out they are anything but that. Way to go CNN, for your wonderful job of vetting these closet liars:

    First, so-called “Log Cabin Republican” David Cercone is a very decided voter for Barrack Usama Hussein Obama.

    Second, so-called “undecided Republican voter” LeeAnn Anderson is a committed activist for John Edwards and advocates for union issues.

    Adam Florzak is a supporter of and works with Dick Durbin on social security reform.

    Mark Strauss is an ardent Bill Richardson (D-Moon) supporter. CNN had to have known who Strauss was since he participated in an earlier CNN/YouTube Demoncrap presidential debate! Incompetent morons.

    Also, there was another Edwards supporter in the after-debate focus group who was trying to pass himself off as an “undecided Republican.”

    The crowning glory was gay General Kerr who, it turns out, is closely affiliated with the sHrillary Clinton campaign. Kerr was also on the steering committee of “Veterans for Kerry.” The question Kerr asked about the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy is indeed legitimate, but it would have been better asked of sHrillary during a Demoncrap debate since it was her husband Bill Clinton who rubberstamped the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy in the first place.

    However one cuts it, the real issue here is how these closet liberals, particularly General Kerr who is suppose to be an honorable officer and a gentleman, misrepresented their party affections in order to slime their way into the Republican forum.

    Therefore, since these lying liberal Democrats are such fine examples of the “truthiness” we can expect from liberals in general, they are all hereby awarded the Kerr Lying Dog Award. Good job my Marxist comrades even though you all got BUSTED!

    BTW, I now see little difference between Islamofascist taqiyya (holy lying) and liberal lying. The ends justifies their means.

    Then a conspiracy it is, sir. Too bad CNN was more busy with ignoring how Democrat liars were trying to pack last night’s Republican debate instead of reporting the clear progress in Iraq.

  • 24 everthink // Nov 29, 2007 at 3:14 pm

    Beerme’s, post of that DNC document referring to “FlipperTV” is yet another example of Dimocrats willingness to use their opponents own words and actions to reveal their true nature!

    Imagine, trying to get honest Repugs to tell the truth!

    How dare they! Those dirty bustards! “Mucaccas”, it makes me wonder if they used it in the 2006 slaughter. Poor George Allen would have been on the clown list today, if it weren’t for Dimocrat dirty tricks!

    Say, I see alot of Republicans quitting lately, what do you think they know you don’t?

    About that “debate” last night, did you ever see anything like that? Where did y’all get these crooks, and liars? Are they the best you’ve got?


  • 25 MajorDomo // Nov 29, 2007 at 3:32 pm

You mean like those videos of Hillary standing on the Senate floor and at the Code Pink meeting, telling her cohorts that she has researched and prayed about giving the President the authority to use force against Saddam and knows that it is the right thing to do, beside the videos of her saying that she opposed the war from the getgo?

    I talked to a guy at my brokerage office. He was complaining about the financial sector; which eventually led (I steered) to a broad discussion of deregulation.

    He agreed with me that most of the problems related to lending, food inspection, drug safety, and product safety was because the Republicans have let industry police itself.

    We got lower prices by sacrificing American jobs to China, allowing them to surpass us in trade, bringing a decline in the dollar, and in the American standard of living.

    He said, he thought mine was a “Red” state, I told him, like most of my friends, “I’m an Independent!”; Diebold or not, just you wait till November!


  • 31 conserve-a-tips // Nov 29, 2007 at 6:37 pm

    ET, is is all fine and dandy to blame Republicans and industry, but personal responsibility is the biggest problem in the financial sector as well as manufacturing and food production.

    Financial? People living beyond their means has and always will be the reason that financial problems rear their ugly heads. If people lived on budgets, saved and only borrowed on homes that they could easily afford, staying away from credit cards, we wouldn’t get into these messes. But as long as people think that they have to keep up with the Joneses and “live the American Dream” whatever pie-in-the-sky vision that is, there will always be financial crisis and crashes. If that dream entails three cars, a boat, a nintendo and enough clean underwear from Victoria’s Secret for three weeks without washing, then something is sorely amiss.

    As per the manufacturing sector, people demanding cheap products and stockholders demanding unrealistic returns on their investments send companies scrambling to find a way to appease those demands. It is why we have illegals living a life of slavery in the agricultural endeavors and why there are child laborers in China and Taiwan. If we Americans were willing to pay a decent price for goods as a result of decent wages for making those goods then companies would be here and not overseas. There is an old saying, “You get what you pay for.” But you see, liberal Americans think they are exempt and should have their cake and eat it too.

    Actually I wish I had all the computer and video savvy these youngens have, though I did take a few semesters of video in college, circa 1996. Oh how much things clanged in 11 years. Now everyone carrys a video camera, hoping for another Rodney King event (who , by the way was shot in the face last night with no video camera to create another riot)

    Basically, what the DNC wants is to raise up another 60’s generation for the new millennium. I can’t wait to see another Chicago where the baby libers get there butts whooped, while Hillary sits in her hotel room completely disregarding what she caused her minions to become.*

    So Colonel General is of the California National Reserves… A friend of mine makes his point like this:
    Also, CNN ran across the screen at the bottom that this guy is a BGen, US Army, ret. Nooo…. he left the US Army as an Enlisted Man, then joined the California National Guard. It was from there that he retired as a Colonel, not as CNN would have us believe that we was retired from the active Army as a One Star. There IS a difference.

    On the same lines, Kerr identifies himself as a “retired Brigadier General, California National Reserve”. Ok… what the hill is the California National Reserve? I do know there is such a thing as the California National GUARD. I also know there are certain organizations known as the MARINE CORPS Reserve; the NAVY Reserve, etc, etc. But I reiterate — what the hill is the California National Reserve?

    Well, I found out. They’re a group of unpaid volunteers who are subservient to the California National Guard. In essence, they’re a bunch of old guys who wear camouflage and pass out water bottles to the Guardsmen as they deploy. God bless ‘em, but let’s be honest. They’re less than the National Guard, but more than the Boy Scouts. Not exactly 2d Recon Battalion. More like the 125th Tongue Depressor & Mess Kit Repair Battalion.

    This guy was never within 8,000 miles of a combat zone.

    That would be the California National Guard. I heard there were some of them in Iraq.

    It looks like he was a Colonel, bumped to Brigadier at retirement to honor his long service; but we’ll have none of that here in the land of “Chickenhawks”, and coke snorting deserters.

    c.a.t. Re # 11 Please do not forget - a decision to not vote is a vote the opposition doesn’t have to get elsewhere as an offset.

    The former mayor of NYC indeed has a great number of serious flaws in his politics he promotes gun confiscation - abortion - homosexual agendas - big government and increased taxes to fund “social agendas” BUT on his worst day he’s at least a millimeter or two above anyone contending for the Democrat nomination.
    Do you have even the foggiest notion of what the Clintons could do to this nation with another eight years in the White House? Especially with a Democrat Congress and their own hand picked Supreme Court Judges. The United States will be indistinguishable from Cuba or Scandinavian countries.

    Please, I beg of you, vote. You can even vote for me as a “write-in” if you prefer. But vote!

  • 41 JamesonLewis3rd // Nov 30, 2007 at 6:47 am

    I’ve found it quite interesting, lately, that the entire country (and, perhaps, the world) has lapsed into referring to “The Clintons” in the White House if Mrs. Clinton were to win as if it is being acknowledged (with a wink and a nod) that to elect Hillary would be to, in fact, elect William.

    Personally, for (somewhat) perverse (think: train wreck) entertainment, I’d like to see the Republican candidates harp on that point incessantly for about, oh, the next year as we watch the former Mrs. President go mad while, on the sidelines, the former Mr. President grins like a mannequin and scans the horizon for an eye to poke or a pocket to pick.

    Now, I don’t want her to divorce the dude or quit the race because I honestly believe, with her as the Democrat nominee, the Republican is a shoo-in.

    Only because American stormtroopers are intimidating the Iraqi populace through wholesale rape, pillaging and murder just like Genghis Khan … right sir?

    UPDATE: Powerful quake shakes Caribbean, one dead…
    More evidence of global warming. Global warming causes the tectonic plates to warm up and expand thus creating more earthquakes … quack, quack, quack.

    How can that be in the socialist utopia of Hugo Chavez? Some people are just so ungrateful!

    Rodney King Shot…
    Can’t we all just get along?

    Hurricane center inflating storm count?…
    Actually the opposite is true. Since global warming theory predicts more hurricanes and because we know man-made global warming is true, then obviously the hurricane center has been suppressing the number of hurricanes actually being generated. Fifteen hurricanes hit America this year but the vast right-wing conspiracy aided by the conservative news organizations of ABC/NBC/CBS/NYT/NPR/CNN are suppressing the news and only reported on one hurricane.

    Weeeell Beerme,

    I wish all you here would be independent, too.

    I think it would be great to hear your questions put to Democrats!

    But, you’d have to ask real questions, and not just make insulting statements.

    You go for it big guy!

    Tough questions like : boxers or briefs ? Since sHrillarity IS the candidate maybe the question should be more like : regular padded brassieres or augmentation surgery?

    Beerme, it’s in their genetics.

    Liberals are totally oblivious to the fact they are lying when they talk about how mainstream/centrist/independent they are. It’s the fig leaf they shamelessly latch onto in order to legitimize their POV. Talk with them long enough and you find out 911 was an inside job, the Founding Fathers were pro-abortion atheists and secretly hated mainline Christendom (or lied about being Christians so they can get elected), and though they say there is no such thing as absolute truth liberals believe themselves to be the repository of … you guessed it, absolute truth! You know, Bush is a monkey and Hitler rolled into one, the Iraq War was all about oil, Iraq is just like Vietnam, there’s a civil war raging in Iraq that the right-wing national news agencies like CBS/ABC/NBC/CNN/NPR/MSNBC (and al Jazeera) aren’t reporting, and we’ve already lost in Iraq so we must immediately pull out and redeploy to Okinawa. And don’t you dare question them about their “truthiness” or they’ll accuse you of “questioning their patriotism.”

    It is any wonder that Republicans and conservatives have a more healthy understanding of their own mental health than guilt-ridden, paranoid, conspiracy ridden, everyone-is-a-victim Donks and liberals?
