The 2015 Presidential debates have begun

I read an interesting news story.

"GOP moves to limit 2016 presidential debates after complaints of media bias, high number in 2012 season"The article said "Washington Republicans have moved to exert more control over their presidential primary debates, limiting the types and number of events in which 2016 candidates can participate, in an effort to get a firmer grip on the nominating process."

All I have to say to the RNC is GOOD LUCK!

On Saturday Steve King, Iowa's 4th District Congressman is running the The Iowa Freedom Summit which Realclearpolitics says "... will be the first major cattle call of the 2016 Republican campaign."

May I say with all due respect, that this is actually the first GOP debate.It's not an "official" debate but this is 2015 and the idea that anyone can control political communication is out of touch. We can have Internet debates, we can have live blogging debates, we will have "forums" and other candidate shindigs all over the United States which will get AS MUCH COVERAGE as the formal debates.

So, 2015 will be a year of abundant and mind boggling candidate presentations and confrontations ON TOP OF the formal and "official" debates.
