Major GOP Candidates Boycott Univision Debate Over Rubio Flap [follow Perry, Huntsman lead]
Fox News ^ | October 4, 2011

The Univision-Marco Rubio flap over whether the network tried to strong-arm the Florida Senator is widening.

On Tuesday, presidential candidates Rick Perry and John Huntsman said they were boycotting an upcoming televised debate on Univision, scheduled for January 29th, because they say the network treated Rubio unethically, according to The Miami Herald. A short while later, Michele Bachmann and Mitt Romney joined the boycott, Fox News Latino confirmed.

The idea that they think they can strong arm candidates seems like business as usual for the MSM.

They’re not running this campaign. I don’t want the MSM selecting my candidate.

And that goes for Drudge — as it’s been reported that he gets his marching orders from Mitt’s campaign manager Matt Rhoades.

And as I’ve been reading all this continuing pile on Perry about how he’s a “racist” because of a landlord’s rock about a landform or flower that was painted over (and these lies are getting louder) — more and more the MSM is beginning to tag Tea Party to him and making the entire conservative base sound like racists.

I want her to run, too...as you can tell by my tagline...

But, we had better have a GOOD strong back-up plan in case she doesn’t!

...and Myth Romney ain’t it!

What the candidates did in this case was heroic and I am proud of all of them for standing up to the lies and hypocrisy!

Perry is thrilled for any excuse to miss a debate

I also wonder if Perry and Bachmann and Huntsman will still be in the race at that point?

just sayin

Speaking of tagging the Tea Party, we have Perry to thank for the “no heart comment”

Thanks Perry for nothing....Now Gov Palin will have to deal with that in the final debates between Obama and herself

Actually Saint is one of those words that has been abused. Saint is actually just a follower of Christ...A sinner saved by grace is actually a Saint.

The whole idea of Sainting people the way the world speaks of it is actually wrong, not Biblical at all.

It’s what they do. Perry will have to develop a harder shell than he already has for what is ahead.

...or whoever survives this liberal blitz.

I think Cain there in the background has a bigger smile on his face than Perry...particularly given today’s poll numbers...
