“Meet the Press” debate: The live blog!

Less than 12 hours after the six men competing for the Republican presidential nomination concluded their last debate, they’ll be back at it again this morning at 9 am eastern time on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

We will be there — assuming our typing fingers can recover — documenting every moment of the festivities in our live blog. Never participated in a Fix live blog before? Think “Mystery Science Theater 3000” but for politics.

Come hang out. It’s like breakfast at Wimbledon — without the white shorts or the class.

New Hampshire debate: What to watch for

New Hampshire debate: What to watch for

The first Republican presidential debate of 2012 is just hours away — 9 p.m. on ABC (or WMUR if you are in New Hampshire) to be exact — and we are, admittedly, a little too excited.

Since the last time the GOP candidates shared a debate stage, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich peaked too soon, Iowa voters, well, voted and one-time top-tier candidate Michele Bachmann ended her campaign.

Iowa ABC/Yahoo Republican debate: The live blog

If you’re like us, you’re spending your Saturday night at home. And glad to be there.

That’s because six Republican presidential candidates will take the debate stage at Drake University in Des Moines tonight at 9 p.m. for their thirteenth (!) debate of the 2012 race.

And, we’ll be live-blogging every minute of it! Never participated in one of our live-blogs before? It’s like watching the debate with your nerdiest (and biggest wise-cracking) friends.

Come and hang out. Trust us — it will be fun.

CNN national security debate: The live-blog

While most Americans are planning what — and how much — they will be eating at Thanksgiving on Thursday, eight Republican presidential candidates will take the debate stage in Washington tonight for a national security focused debate.

And we will be there! For those who haven’t participated in our live blogs before, think of it as watching the debate with your best (and most sarcastic) friends. You can follow the live blog below. We will get started around 7:30 p.m. — about a half-hour before the debate actually starts.

Come hang out. It will be more fun than watching a Hallmark Hall of Fame tear-jerker. We promise.
