Last week’s Republican debate raised more concern over the way debates are sanctioned than the issues being asked of candidates. Although CNBC proved to be a poor moderator of the ten presidential hopefuls on stage, that shouldn’t mean that the candidates themselves can run the debates. In their post-debate reaction to the questions asked by the moderators, twelve of the Republican presidential candidates have negotiated new debate terms they hope to present to television networks. In a meeting on Sunday night, every candidate was in agreement that they were going to bypass the Republican National Committee to renegotiate debate processes, but by Monday night four candidates—Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina, John Kasich, and Chris Christie—decided against the united front. Trump said he would rather deal with the networks himself, while Fiorina gave up on a prospect of change by saying, “We need to understand that the media is not going to be fair.” Christie put it bluntly by saying, “stop complaining… and let’s just go.” Kasich brought the most reason, perhaps, by saying, “we are used to answering tough questions all the time,” which each candidate should be used to by now. We’re going to have to agree with President Obama on this one, though, when he said, “if you can't handle those guys [CNBC moderators], then I don't think the Chinese and the Russians are going to be too worried about you.” Getting upset for being asked unfair question has united the Republican candidates, but threatening to protest the debates to get what they want is not the solution.
