The race for the GOP nomination continues to stay heated, but are candidates too busy attacking one another when the focus should be on their record and on Barack Obama? And why is no one in the media focused on the real issues (cough skyrocketing gas prices cough) but continuing to put all their attention on social issues? Glenn responded to the latest debate on radio this morning.
"When you start watching the debate last night, you wonder what is wrong with the press? How many questions did they ask about gas prices?" Glenn said.
The answer? A big fat ZERO!
"How many questions did they ask about food prices and rising cost of food?"
"How many questions did they ask about housing prices?"
Zero! (It's really not fun at this point)
Of course, there were important questions asked about birth control and contraception, like this gem: "Since birth control is the latest hot topic, which candidate believes in birth control and, if not, why?"
Thankfully, the crowd booed the question pretty aggressively.
"This is such a sham. May I recommend that the Republicans stop shooting themselves now and start aiming the questions and the answers towards the guy that is not being questioned by anyone: Barack Obama," Glenn said.
Glenn expressed his frustration in the candidates who are starting to attack one another rather than speak to their own record and what separates them from Barack Obama.
Glenn said, "We're all united on one thing and that is making sure that Barack Obama is not elected again. Because you know why? Look at the housing prices. How much is your house worth? Is it worth more than it was four years ago or less than it was four years ago? How about your job? Are you making more or less? How about unemployment? Is it higher or lower? How about gas prices? You paying more or less? Food prices, more or less?"
"They are doing all of the work for Barack Obama," Glenn said.
Stu argued, however, "Right now people are not making the decision between Rick Santorum or Barack Obama. They are making the decision between Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney."
"Let's concentrate on what's really happening in this country not four years ago but today," Glenn said.
