Cruz Wants Republican Moderators For Debates

Ted Cruz thinks only Republican moderators should be allowed to ask questions at GOP presidential debates, The Hill reported.

The Texas senator declared Saturday that if he had his way, “what you wouldn’t have is a bunch of left-wing operatives whose object is that whoever the Republican nominee is, they want him as battered and bruised as possible so the Democrat wins in November.”

During his speech to the Republican Growth and Opportunity Party in Des Moines, Iowa, Cruz called for moderators who “help conservatives make a decision who’s going to be the best and strongest conservative to represent us and win, who is the proven conservative, the consistent conservative.”

The senator asked his audience: “How about we stop letting left-wing liberals moderate Republican debates? How about instead of a bunch of attack journalists, we actually have real journalists?” He suggested conservative political commentators Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin.

Cruz argued that the last debate was falsely billed as a discussion of economic issues. “How do you have a debate on the economy and never mention Obamacare? You talk to small-business owners, Obamacare is the single biggest job-killer in this country, and yet the moderators — apparently there are no questions to be asked about Obamacare,” he said.

The candidate continued: “Other things that weren’t mentioned at the debate (were) Common Core, ISIS, Iran. But, you know what? We had plenty of time to talk about fantasy football.”
