Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 7pm New York time for the first economic debate of the Republican primary season. Bloomberg Television and The Washington Post, in partnership with WBIN-TV and host Dartmouth College, will present the first debate of the 2012 campaign focused exclusively on the issues voters consider most important - the economy, debt, deficits, taxes, trade and jobs. Moderated by Charlie Rose, Washington Post political correspondent Karen Tumulty and Bloomberg White House correspondent Julianna Goldman. (Source: Bloomberg)

I first heard about this today and thought - "AWESOME! Economy only! No foreign policy! Ron Paul is going to OWN this!!"

Then I went to ronpaul2012.com and noticed it's not on the event calendar. :eek:

Has anyone else heard of this? Any details on who's there and who's not?

RP always says you can't discuss our economic policy without discussing our foreign policy. :o

Prior to the campaign I've seen him on Bloomberg quite a bit talking about the gold standard and other economic issues.. not as a Presidential Candidate, but as an Economic Expert and as the Chairman of the Domestic Monetary Policy Subcommittee. He was always treated with respect on the channel - hopefully he will be in the debate as well. ::fingers crossed::

I think it all depends on the moderator...these debates while are "hosted" or aired on Bloomberg...may be run and controlled by a select group of people. I wonder how they come up with the questions? I hope they just pose all the questions to each candidate down the line...that alone would be good enough.

should be good. at least better than the pro-wrestling superbowl beauty pageants that have been the previous MSM debates.

Do we know which other candidates are participating?
Charlie Rose should be a good moderator, but like someone else here said 'it's usually a panel behind the scenes that control the questions and debate format'. However, Bloomberg, economy, should be real type of questions and not this msnbcnnfox fluff.

Romney, Perry Each Seek Momentum as Next Republican Debate Looms
Oct. 6 2011

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-10-06/romney-perry-each-seek-momentum-as-next-republican-debate-looms.html

Mitt Romney and Rick Perry are grappling for momentum in the Republican presidential race, competing for donors, supporters and attention as the field of candidates has solidified and they prepare for a debate next week focused on the U.S. economy.


...


U.S. Representative Ron Paul of Texas, another of the Republican presidential candidates, said at a National Press Club luncheon in Washington yesterday that the interest in Christie demonstrated a yearning among Republican voters for additional choices.
“It represents the failure of the system and what is offered up,” he said. “They keep looking for others.”
Paul, 75, said he remains optimistic about his chances for the nomination. He reported raising more than $8 million during the quarter, from what he said were nearly five times as many donors as Perry. He ranked fourth in the Washington Post-ABC News poll at 11 percent.

Perhaps, but Bloomberg is a business channel with a different audience than the average CNN, FOX, or MSNBC viewership.
This will also be Bloombergs' first-ever presidential debate.

The audience will be filled with 1000s of NH residents and Dartmouth students. Another big building on the campus is expected to be filled with NH residents and Dartmouth students. The debate will also air on the new local channel in NH (there are now 2 local channels.)

So, you may (and likely are correct) but especially so outside of NH. Inside NH, a broader audience will watch it.

seating arrangement has been released

Texas Governor Rick Perry has been pushed out of center stage by Herman Cain in tomorrow night's New Hampshire Republican presidential debate.

A source on one Republican campaign forwards on the seating chart for tomorrow night's debate in Hanover, whose organizers have given the leaders in the national polls -- presently, Mitt Romney and Cain, the central spots, pushing Rick Perry a space to the left.

The arrangement gives Cain a star turn in the top-tier and puts another scene-stealer, Ron Paul, close to the center of the action. It may take a bit of the spotlight off Perry, and give him an opportunity to regain his footing; it also, though, diminishes his status as a frontrunner and makes a dramatic confrontation with Romney a bit harder.

"As Al [Hunt] and Dan [Balz] mentioned on the call, seating order was determined by polling," former McCain aide Eileen McMenamin, who is working with the organizers of the Washington Post/Bloomberg/WBIN debate, emailed the campaigns yesterday.

He is #2 in RCP. So it's somewhat fair.

Which is worse than broadcasted on air because most people will only see MSM (pick and choose) highlights of the debate.
