    Question time for Republicans
    By George F. Will, Published: September 2

    Wednesday’s Republican “debate” in California will not resemble the 1858 Lincoln-Douglas debates, in which one candidate spoke for 60 minutes, the other responded for 90 minutes and his opponent had 30 minutes for rebuttal. Still, today’s debates (“What is the meaning of life? You have 30 seconds”; “One word answer, please: Keynes or Hayek?”) can illuminate. So, some questions.

    ***********************

    For Mitt Romney: One day recently you said, “I’m not for tax cuts for the rich. .?.?. I want to make sure that whatever we do in the tax code, we’re not giving a windfall to the very wealthy.” The next day you said you support the Bush tax rates. Would making the Bush rates permanent constitute a tax cut? Who is “rich” or “very wealthy”?.....

    ***********************

    For Rick Perry: As an American anomaly — a hard-money populist, the opposite of William Jennings Bryan — you fault the Federal Reserve for the promiscuous printing of money. It has indeed essentially promised a fourth and fifth year of very low interest rates. But someone or something must control the money supply. Should the Fed be independent? Of what? Is it not a creature of Congress, which could set the money supply? But would not Congress constantly dictate low interest rates? Would you solve the problems inherent in fiat money by returning to the gold standard?....

    ***********************

    For Michele Bachmann: You say that under President Bachmann gasoline will cost less than $2 a gallon. How? Will increased domestic drilling and oil shale production quickly and dramatically increase oil supplies and somehow sever the price of American oil from the world market price? Should politicians promise particular prices for global commodities?.....

    ************************

    For Jon Huntsman: You, who preen about having cornered the market on good manners, recently tweeted, “I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy.” Call you sarcastic. In the 1970s, would you have trusted scientists predicting calamity from global cooling? Are scientists a cohort without a sociology — uniquely homogenous and unanimous, without factions or interests and impervious to peer pressures or the agendas of funding agencies? Are the hundreds of scientists who are skeptical that human activities are increasing global temperatures not really scientists?.....

    Mrs keet,,,,let me answer a couple of them for you,,,,maintaing the current tax rates would NOT be a cut, as you are maintaing the current rate,,,,and if IIRC,,,,when Bush cut taxes,,,,IT WAS ACROSS THE BOARD,,,,so, if they expire, is this a tax INCREASE ON THE POOR????

    Second question would take too long as you have no concept of economics....

    Thirdly,,,,gas would be reduced by increasing supply and allowing drilling HERE,,,,drilling NOW,,,,thereby paying LESS,,,,can YOU comprehend that????

    WHICH scientists are you going to believe,,,,some say yes, some say no....I would bet the ones that are saying no aren't receiving study grants.....

    bigdog - They are not my questions, they were asked by George Will, conservative columnist. You should send your comments to him. His email is:

    georgewill@washpost.com

    Or better yet, you can send your ideas the candidates so they can answer these questions if they are ever asked.

    Questions for Curt - Do you support George Wallace's position on segregated schools? If a Democrat campaigned to return to segregated schools, would you consider him a "good Democrat"? Would you vote for him?

    mrskeet410:

    Do you support any individual for the office of the presidency; do you support, on the whole, any one party or the other?

    What is your political philosophy?

    Obviously, some of your questions have rung the bells of certain forum members.

    Are you, in the end, trying to get readers to investigate the issues in depth, regardless of party?

    Just wondering.

    Cracks me up when a flaming liberal asks questions of Republicans.

    Go clean up your own party first, bub.

    Good one Brian!!

    Never understood a party that would lynch ya because of your race or make you sit in the back of the bus and not allow you to vote!

    Let alone be a bunch of gun grabbers after taking an oath to uphold gun rights!

    Then claim they put the first black man into the WH but in reality he is just a half breed.
