If you missed the debate among the Republican candidates for president in Ames, Iowa two days before today’s straw poll in the Hawkeye state, here you go.
The debate has been called entertaining, informative and combative. It is all that — and much better than the farce put on by CNN several weeks ago. The debate, hosted by Fox News, also puts the lie to the meme that the cable network does the bidding of the GOP. The questions were challenging — the kind of challenges on policy that Obama has still never faced by the tired “old media.”
