Lingle, Hirono debate after 1-day break

U.S. Senate contenders Linda Lingle and Mazie Hirono are debating in front of a statewide television audience for the second time in three days.

A debate tonight on PBS marks the second of three debates in seven days in the race to replace U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka, who is retiring.

U.S. Rep. Hirono has spent much of the campaign focusing on Lingle's ties to national Republicans.

Lingle is trying to convince voters of her bipartisan leadership abilities.

During a debate on Tuesday, Lingle said she differs from Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on immigration and his approach to China.

Hirono says her values as a Democrat are more in line with Hawaii and President Barack Obama.

I hope and pray that I do not get the word "Republican" in the Mazie Hirono Drinking Game. That would be a liver killer. Darn near dies when I got "collaborative" in the earlier debates.

Neither candidate impresses but I would vote mazie just because she does not try to hide her incompetence. Lingle does. More worrisome, she is not even a republican and will not represent Hawaii. She is owned by others

The amount of distorting and misleading advertising mainly by Democrats, their democrat political action groups and unions is staggering and mind blowing. Lingle is much more qualified than Hirono.

I don't know if Lingle is more qualified but one thing we know for sure is that Lingle is a liar. She got caught in her lie regarding her speech in 2002 to the state GOP convention where she said "Bush was the greatest President ever"...lol

I know you'd never give an honest reply, but I bet back in 2002 you thought pretty highly of Bush too. This country had been hit hard and we were rallying together with him as our leader. Easy to generate commentaries based on hindsight.

You're not actually thinking any of them would admit her lie publicly, do you? They will obfuscate and deflect, but they won't acknowledge the truth staring them in the face.
