Hillary Won't Do Fox Debate Either
The Politico (via Dridge) ^ | April 09, 2007 | Ben Smith

Posted on 04/09/2007 7:51:07 PM PDT by blogblogginaway

The third shoe drops: Hillary's not doing the Fox News/CBC Debate either.

Clinton spokesman Blake Zeff emails, "We're going to participate in the DNC-sanctioned debates only. We've previously committed to participating in the SC and Tavis Smiley debates."

No word yet from Kucinich and Gravel, or the other campaigns, or from Fox, which could presumably do an empty podium hour and confirm to its viewers that Democrats are, in fact, the cowards it's often portrayed them as. Sounds win-win to me.

Good! Fox shouldn’t be assisting Democrats anyway.

This is why Bill threw his little hissy-fit hit-job on Chris Wallace.

Okay...that is 3 candidates that aren’t worthy of staring down the enemies of the United States of America.

Good, let the REpub candidates debate. They will get the most exposure.

Not surprising at all. Neither Hitlery nor The Prince of Darkness will go anywhere an honest question will be asked of them.

Let’s be honest....in both of their minds, they are beyond question.

The Dems are giving up early in the effort to draw Republican voters.

That will hold them to no more than 43% of the popular vote in the 2008 election.

At this point, I don’t see what Fox News has to lose by going show to show put down of the COWARDICE of the Democrat candidates for POTUS.

“Okay...that is 3 candidates that aren’t worthy of staring down the enemies of the United States of America.”

I agree. Each day the democratic leadership and their presidential candidates show just a little more of who they really are and what they’re really made of.

It is interesting that Hillary chose to release this only after she discovered that Obama wasn’t participating. She is really scared of him. First she followed him by announcing earlier than she wanted to and then she followed him to Selma. I think that Hillary is in deep doo doo if she has to take all her cues from Obama’s campaign.

Well, I guess there will no debate. Too bad they are lying about the reasons. I would think someone in that group would not be a liar; but I guess not.

FOX should take out an ad in newspapers around the country calling the RATS cowards for not wanting to debate.

It is obvious that the democrats think that they are calling the shots for the 2008 elections. I hope that they are not allowed to get away with it.

I still have not made up my mind about running for President in 2008, but I definitely will not be participating in the FOX News Channel”s debate program thingy.

I’m also not going to buy any French wine ever again.

I won’t run red lights either.

Cancel the debates entirely. Who cares what they are gonna lie to us about. Anyone that wants to know their stand can find it out. If they won’t appear on Fox I refuse to watch the debate.

Why would Fox want to do something that idiotic?

First of all, it's not "news" to call people cowards. Second, why "take out an ad?" Fox has its own show. Third, it would not be "fair and balanced" news.

Once Fred Thompson gets the nod, FNC should just put him on a stage with a Hillary blow up doll, thighs and all and have a pull string on the doll that a gaffer pulls for canned responses:

“You know blah”

“Support the troops blah”

“Kyoto blah”

“Sustainable blah”

“For the children blah”

“100,000 strong women blah”

“Vast conspiracy blah”

“blah blah”

Just keep posting your idea. I would love to see cardboards of Edwards, Obama and Hillary. The soundbites and headlines in response to debate questions would also be a great SNL piece. Where are those who love to make the videos to post on YouTube?

It is ironic..that this US Attorney “scandal” is linked in a roundabout way to the lack of investigation into voter fraud in New Mexico...

You make a great point.

What about the right of all voters to hear from all the candidates? This entire snit fit smacks of elitism.

Oh wait. John Edwards, Barry Obsama, Hillary Clinton. Like I said, ELITISM(it’s a subcategory of communism).

"FOX should take out an ad in newspapers around the country calling the RATS cowards for not wanting to debate."

Even better- have the debate anyway with an empty podium.

The moderator should pause for a full 2 minutes after every question to hear the democrats' "rebuttal".

I love that idea. The questions could be answered by various sound bites. I especially love the one where Hillary said we might have to take things from you......

LOL, that would be the end of her career. FOX could bury all the dem candidates.

This is EXACTLY the kind of superficial ‘water cooler’ type issue that is EXTREEMLY useful in convincing the non-engaged voters that the dems just aren’t fit for executive office.

A great gift for us

We did fine with paper ballots until the Gore faux crisis in 2000, which was the excuse used to foist electronic machines with impeachable audit trails upon the citizenry.

We should go back to all-paper, verifiable ballots.

Yeah, go ahead, call me a voting-machine Luddite! ;^)

And while we’re going low-tech, I’m a big fan of dyed fingers like they did in Iraq.
