Reince Priebus is such an idiot. Yeah that’ll show ‘em. The republicans won’t show up to debates. That’s real pressure! The media and the democrats are SOOOO intimidated now.

Reince Priebus sent me an email detailing this stupid move. I replied with an earful and told him to resign.

CNN should be out anyway after Candy Crowley inserted herself as a fact-checker for theOne - and predictably parroted the administration lie.

The DNC has to keep the dumbing down program going 24/7 because some of it’s base are wising up to all their failed and costly stunts.

I disagree... it is about time the GOP stop subjecting themselves to abuse.

ABC has a lot of nerve running this story after George Snufalufagus ran with the questions to Romney about birth control coverage during a primary debate. He was under orders to ask the question from the White House. Remember Mitt asking him, "where are these questions coming from?". Then a week later the "war of women" propaganda started.

Not only should we ban networks, but reporters such as Snufalugagus, Crowley and others pretending to be objective.

There are some people on FR that no matter what the GOP does is not good enough. Dammed if you do ...Dammed if you don’t. As long as Fox News and Fox Channel carry the debates the GOP does not need the alphabets.

Well, NBC and CNN may concede and the Republicans may show up at the debates, but the debates will now be moderated by Kieth Olbermann, Dan Rather, and Michael Moore.

That’ll show ‘em!

I’m not convinced the low info voters watch even their news shows.

It’ll be Lettermans, Stewarts, sitcoms, realities, etc., where Hillary will get her best coverage.

But, the few people who will watch the movies and see the news will be the info sources for those who don’t.

No one believes GOP leadership any more.

The GOP will have balls when they tell the entire MSM that they will NOT participate in any MSM network debates.

Oh, I’m all for not participating in the sham “Commission on Presidential Debates” but this is what pushed them over the edge?? A couple of Hillary Videos?? It wasn’t Tom Brokaw and Gwen Ifill and Jim Lehrer being chosen time after time?? It wasn’t Candy Crowley clearly schilling for Obama? Like you said it wasn’t George Stephanopolis starting the War on Women crap. Those didn’t bother Reince at all.

But put on a couple of Hillary videos and “oh, that’s the last straw! They’re really gonna hear from me now! I’m not bringing my ball back ever again!!”

The Republicans shouldn’t have let Romney debate last year. When you see the likes of Candy Crowley, Bob Schieffer as moderators, you have to be idiots to think that the Republican candidate will be treated fairly. In ‘16, they will probably sign up Rachel Maddow, Piers Morgan, and Chris Matthews.

This is true.

At least the Republicans are doing something.

Maybe this is a stupid move, but it is also at least a move.

They should be taking CBS NBC and other to the Supreme Court on this. It should not be allowed unless we get a Sarah Palin movie in equal time produced by Republicans.

This is not an unreasonable threat from the RNC but I seriously doubt NBC & CNN will cave. The networks are run by liberal True Believers who despise Republicans and are eager to help Hillary Clinton become The First Woman President, following the media-driven two-time election of Barack Obama, The First Black President.

Why does the GOP always agree to having (mostly) hard left moderators at every presidential debate? To persuade the liberal networks to air them? In 2016...seriously? Holding the debates on Fox News - exclusively - with Fox moderators - would upset the Democrats but if the RNC flatly refused to have the GOP presidential candidate appear in a debate on other networks, I suspect the DNC might go along, always assuming that they could spin the debate results and that a Fox moderator - predictably vilified by the MSM beforehand - wouldn't dare to ask Hillary anything but 'softball' questions. It could actually be a real debate - but then, this is the GOP and such hard bargaining is simply not in their DNA.

I agree that it is about time the GOP grow a pair, and I’d fully support such a boycott, but given past history I think this is more of a means to solicit donations to the RNC than an actual threat. Next will come the emails from Reince...but in the end nothing will come of such a threat once the media calls his bluff.

The GOP should appoint Newt as their “designated debater”. He’s the only guy they have quick enough on his feet to destroy not only his opponent but the moderator as well.

You are correct. I contacted the RNC, furious about them once again entering into debates moderated by the same liberal gang. I was told it was the nominees decision. I was also told, that the names of moderators submitted were unbelievable, that the ones chosen were conservative by comparison to the other options.

Good move, Rinse!! Let’s go ahead and shoot ourselves in the foot, then cut off the leg to stop the bleeding!!

God, give me strength, this man is so stupid he’s giving stupid people a bad name!! Apparently, the RNC has no issue with ‘Pubbies appearing on TV shows with such hostile “interviewers” as Matt Wower, George Stephanopanopanopoulos, the shrill witches of “the View”, Katy “I’m Still Cuter Than You Are” Couric and a whole host of others.

But, in the face of a prejudicial “miniseries” promoting HiLLIARy!, they want to throw a temper tantrum. IMO, HiLLIARy! doesn’t have a real chance to take the leftist nomination. After 8 years of zero’s inept, incompetent, narcissistic, communist (and exceptionally dubious) “leadership”, I don’t really believe that America will fall all over itself to vote for another incompetent, inept communist whose philandering husband would LOVE to get back to chasing interns in the WH.

Not happenin’ - no how, no way!

I think the so-called debates are a joke in the first place.

I wouldn’t have them at all.

I prefer each candidate filming 30 minutes with their plan on each major area of the nation: defense, economy, foreign policy, etc.

No stupid gotcha questions, no arguments over setting, and no hemming and hawing by the candidates.

Actually, I love debates, but I would like our side to be questioned only by conservatives like others have mentioned:

Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and Laura Ingraham to name just three.

That way there’d be no easy rides for the likes of Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie and any other RINO who wants to slither past with rhetoric that doesn’t match his or her record and previous statements.
