Because the Republicans are showing themselves to be spineless morons. Again.
Republicans will NEVER EVER learn. Try to imagine, as Hewitt points out, what would happen if FOX sponsored a debate.
Hugh Hewitt is generally a mushy get-along type. But he has been out front (from the very beginning) in boycotting the Politico/NBC debate. And he is now taking it further and demanding GOP debates not be co-opted by leftwing media hacks. Kudos for that.
the debates will be. the libhole moderater will ask the R candidate “tell us why you’d be a lousy president”. then to be completely fair, they’ll ask Obie “ tell us why your opponent would be a lousy president”
Hugh, you are obviously laboring under the delusion that Republican higher ups are actually CONCERNED with the well-being of the nation, the liberty of the American public or even WINNING at the polls!! It’s long past time you understood that these are simply ne’er do well, pseudo-Democrat wanna-be’s, intent upon keeping their place in the national political pecking order. Don’t annoy the NY Times or lib friends, pretend to care about the fortunes of the party and make certain underlings don’t embarrass themselves or YOU in the national media...those are the watchwords.
