Looks like this debate is doomed .
I fail to understand why The Donald should have any role in this process.
Looks to me like the no shows are “doomed”
As Trump sits anxiously before the Conservative electorate in America, he finally hears the dreaded words,
I agree with you . Just sayin’ that other than Gingrich and Santorum nobody wants to participate in the debate . Got to be a friendlier environment than with CNN and Wolf Blitzer , no ?
Just who the heck is The Donald that candidates should suck up to him?
He can have all the $$$ in the world, but, to me, he’s a crude, dirty old man with bad hair and a bad tan.
I applaud anyone who declines his invitation.
Interesting, not sure what to make of this.
Why on Earth is Romney using his donors money
to feed ObamaBOTs working against the GOP?
Mitt Romney Sends Leftover Pizza to Obama Chicago HQ
After spending the day in Chicago fundraising, Mitt Romney
sat down with small business owners at Gino's East,
a pizza joint famous for their deep-dish pizza.
In fact, Romney himself tweeted a photo of a
delivery boy heading out with the loot, writing,
"Great deep dish at @ginoseast.
Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team."
Then she would attend the debate to get more press.
The establishment wins again. They’ve also convinced some clowns that Trump has n voice and should just go away. Yeah, the same Trump who excoriates Obama daily. So many conservatives need to go on over to the dems and get it over with. George will, David Brookes, Rove etc etc.
Good. This will give Santorum his best shot yet to get his message out. Go Rick!!
Cause like Perry and Romney, they don’t want to hang around some idiot birther...
Why doomed? Is it that you’ll miss hearing how many natural and how many foster kids she’s raised?
I saw her on the news this morning and she said that there are some questions about Trump’s motives.
I think the date of the debate was concern for most candidates. It is the one week they would all like to take off.
At the last minute, Sarah should announce that she will participate as a non candidate attendee at Trumps debate and talk about the issues since possibly only two will show. That’ll ruffled the feathers of the media and Establishment! Oh Boy!
I’m so glad that you were able to pick up Kathy Griffin’s slack.
I don’t think it is doomed at all. Just because some of the othes don’t attend doesn’t mean it can’t be a meaningful conversation between a couple candidates. Seems to me the other candidates are RUNNING AWAY from the tough questions Donald Trump may have on his slate. We will enjoy watching it though.
He’s not talking about the birther issue.
but they can go to NBC, politico
Is it any wonder why the GOP are so screwed up when they cannot even grasp the basics of who should come to CPAC, Who goes to our debates, who runs on our ticket and who they choose to run our debates.
Hey obama don’t bother running , we’;re doing a damn good job of destroying ourselves
and what the hell is it with all these debates, the more they have the more the left gets on us.
Good for them. Trump is a modern P.T. Barnum. Let someone else play the sucker.
First of all, “The Donald” doesn’t have the money he claims. 7 reported bankruptcies. I mean... he started an AIRLINE!!!! Who the hell does that and expects to make money????
He is nothing more than a celebrity. A media whore. A supposed EX-Democrat. It is VERY difficult for me to take anyone who spends time on The Howard Stern Show and the WWE seriously in a presidential media role.
Bottom line, when was the last time we heard from “The Donald”? A couple of months before The Apprentice came on TV.
When is he sticking his fake hair in this Presidential election? A couple of months before The Apprentice comes on TV....
Do the math folks. Not that hard....
Is it a stretch for us to keep it classy?
how I wish Sarah had run instead of this dicking around with poxy debates run by left wing groups like politico, CNN etc and why are those who are liberal on social issues and some foreign running on a GOP ticket.
You are despicable. I am not supporting Bachmann, but she and the husband are patriotic, honorable Americans and Christians, and don't deserve such mindless contempt.
Maybe Trump should reconsider and just have the three left have a meeting at his favorite pizza joint...betcha’ Sarah would join them too.
When she was on the news this morning she pointed out that Trump already knows who he’s going to endorse and he’s still talking abut running 3rd party himself.
I think I’d be wary of the situation too.
You’re only half right (about the right wing elites)
Apparently Trumps tough talk has convinced you that he’s some kind of conservative himself simply because the elites don’t like him. He is rather liberal himself on so many issues.
And who excoriated Bush and praised Obama, and donated to Pelosi and Weiner in 2009? SUCH big "conservative".
I’m with you, I’m pretty tired of these clowns who call themselves conservative yet turn right around and sling that same trash at Bachmann that the left threw at Sarah Palin.
BTW from twitter. Teambachmann in Quad Cities: I’m THE consistent conservative. Gingrich & Romney favor the individual mandate. I will repeal Obamacare.
So much for her working for Romney.
Umm, Trump is the clown. Why should Republican candidates go to a debate moderated by a giant RealityTV ego who is threatening to run against them. The entire idea is stupid.
Newt, Ricky and the Donald eh?
That is a very serious charge. Where is the proof that Mr. Marcus Bachmann is a homosexual?
If anything Michele Bachmann and her husband are working through Christ-centered counseling to restore sodomites to normal.
Ups and downs are marks of the true entrepreneur.
So , why have Gingrich and Santorum said they would participate ?
>> Umm, Trump is the clown. Why should Republican candidates go to a debate moderated by a giant RealityTV ego who is threatening to run against them. The entire idea is stupid. >>
No one threatening to run third party should moderate the debates - OR participate in the debates. (memo to paultards)
You and the media seem to agree, cool.
You have to wonder why Palin endorsed it after a few had already turned it down. It looks wimpy to change your mind just because she endorsed it.
Bad move on her part and I like Sarah. She should walk it back.
Trump isn’t even sure he isn’t going to run. That’s about like having a debate moderated by one of the candidates.
Actually I’d like to see another Huckabee style forum with audience members asking questions of the candidates individually.
For the sake of disclosure, I’ve changed position on this one.
The Trump Show with staring The Donald. With special guest Newt Gingrich. Oh and some other dude.
Her husband just screams gay to those of us who van pick them out.
Trump will have a temper tandrum because they wont attend his little boy party. So he will run 3rd party to get back at them. That is the plan, that is his agenda.
Trump is still leaving a run for president open. So why would he be conducting a debate? It boggles the mind!
And he is a reality TV star among other things whose thing about “You’re Fired” is probably the basis for this ill conceived idea.
It’s nuts. Anyone who agrees with it is also nuts.
Trump is the ultimate crony capitalist. He proudly defends his theft of property through eminent domain.
Hey, I know, let’s pith off Trump so he’ll run 3rd party and ruin it for all the candidates !
