GOP Candidates Debate On CBS This Saturday

NEW YORK (CBS) — CBS will present the Campaign 2012 season’s first network broadcast of a Republican Presidential Primary debate on Saturday, Nov. 12, beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. The event will also be webcast from CBSNews.com with an additional 30 minutes online for post-debate political analysis.

Saturday will be the first time Texas Gov. Rick Perry appears on stage with his fellow GOP presidential rivals following Wednesday’s Republican debate in which Perry couldn’t remember the third federal agency he had pledged to eliminate. Although he was at the top of the polls when he entered the race in August, Perry’s standing dropped after a series of poor debate performances in September.

CBS News’ Scott Pelley and the National Journal’s Major Garrett will moderate the evening’s discussion, which will focus primarily on national security questions. Wofford College in Spartanburg, S.C., will host the event held in conjunction with the South Carolina State Republican Party.

“Scott Pelley and all of us at CBS News look forward to a spirited discussion of the issues with all of the Republican candidates in Spartanburg,” said David Rhodes, president of CBS News.

“This debate will examine the critical questions of America’s role in the world, now and in the future,” said National Journal editor-in-chief Ron Fournier.

During previous Republican debates, the main eight GOP candidates have sought to define themselves against each other and President Barack Obama. The CBS News/National Journal debate will reveal the candidates’ views on wide-ranging foreign affairs topics, such as the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the changes throughout the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, and the global war on terror.

    Remember to type your question slowly so that Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry can read it without moving their lips.

    Another sleepless night tonite.Too exciting waiting for the profound ,honest and inspiring words from queen Michele.The laziest,craziest belle at the GOP ball! Only in America can useless,mentally challenged people collect money for being a senator or congress person while not attending,not voting and lying their tails off trying to be POTUS! Instead of working we could be leeching wages and benefits and under table pay outs like those nattering ghouls of government! How more inspiring could they be than they are right now?

    I’ve been surfing on-line greater than three hours lately, but I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
