Many Republicans loved Newt Gingrich when he slammed the ABC moderators for their obvious bias. No one, he pointed out, ever asks about the secular Obama progressives driving the Catholic Church out of the adoption process by demanding they place children with gay couples. "The bigotry question goes both ways. And there's a lot more anti-Christian bigotry today than there is concerning the other side. And none of it gets covered by the news media."
Over on NBC, Gregory and his co-conspirators asked 25 questions from the liberal perspective and just three from the right. It was extra-skewed by Gregory including quotes from liberal activists on Facebook. "And this from Martin Montalvo, because we do have a spending crisis but also a lot of people hurting. He writes this: 'With more Americans on government assistance than ever before, is it un-American for Americans to feel relieved when the government helps them?'"
How perverse is this question? More than 45 million Americans are on food stamps, a record high. Is it "un-American" to question this ever-increasing load of government dependency?
Boston media hack Andy Hiller demanded both Romney and Santorum needed to become "a voice for increasing gay rights." He even made it personal with Santorum. "What if you had a son who came to you and said he was gay?" The applause line would be "What if you had a son who came to you and admitted he was a Conservative?"
But worst of all, these "moderators" couldn't utter a single question that was negative about Barack Obama. Not one.
Instead, Hiller pestered Rick Perry to agree with a Washington Post article written by John McCain right after the Tucson shootings, that Obama "is a patriot sincerely intent on using his time in office to advance our country's cause. I reject accusations that his policies and beliefs make him unworthy to lead America or opposed to its founding ideals."
These are not moderators. They are Obama partisans. Again: Why is the GOP putting up with this?
