Well, the question I heard was simply whether opposing the debt compromise meant you were not a problem solver.

The guy never answered it but went off on some tear about how people didn't trust the press.

Although my experience in general from watching debates is few (both republican and democrat) ever really answer the question they were asked.
Trump did. Guess you forgot about the signing the pledge question. By the way, since you may have forgotten, It was Fox News Anchor who asked the question ...

That was ONE question.
What "guy"?

In general the questions were inane and some of them were so bad they should not have been answered at all.
Handling stupid questions from reporters with an agenda - and a transparent one at that - has nothing at all to do with handling China or Russia, both of whom have made a donkey out of Obama.

Well, that makes Christie and the other Republicans tougher than Obama and Hillary, who have refused to debate on Fox.

Whichever one of these guys who gets elected (and I assume it will be Trump) is going to face a lot more criticism than a TV debate.

What do they want, a foot massage?
Why won't Obama and Hillary appear on Fox?

Why are Obama and Hillary afraid of Fox and Mark Levine?

I saw one of them spend his whole time complaining about the questions instead of simply giving an answer.
He was only going to get three or four questions, and not one of them was going to be, "What do you think of the way we're moderating the debate?"

So there is no way that he could have satisfied you.

In your book, Republicans aren't allowed to criticize the lying liberal media.

I get it.

Why won't the Democrats allow Fox to moderate one of their debates?

They are the ones who are whiny and thin-skinned.

The Democrats can't handle even one unfriendly question posed by a conservative Republican.

And the cowardice of Obama is evident in his dealings with Putin, Iran and ISIS.

I don't remember his name but he took his entire time to rant about the press and never even touched the actual question.

Has Fox ever expressed an interest in hosting a Democratic debate?

Obama wouldn't do a DNC debate with FoxNews, because Roger Ailes made an Obama joke.

Obama is so thin skinned. Obama is such a hypocrite. And the sheep actually think Obama has a good non-hypocritical point here.

MoveOn.org was pressuring the DNC to boycott the FoxNews debate BEFORE the joke and now MoveOn.org is acting like Obama has a good point about the GOP and CNBC. Sad, so many sheep are posting in agreement over there.

Yes.

They've wanted Obama, Hillary, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the current crop of Democratic presidential candidates to appear on Fox, both for interviews and debates.

Bernie Sanders has appeared, but the others are clearly afraid.

Obama allowed Bill O'Reilly to interview him once or twice. That's about it.
