Skip to comments.5 GOP candidates commit to Baltimore debate (No Fred, Rudy McRomney, but there are Hunter and Paul)
Posted on 09/22/2007 6:29:53 AM PDT by Ultra Sonic 007
Just five Republican candidates - half the invited field - will take part in Thursday's presidential debate in Baltimore, event organizers said yesterday.
The four leading contenders, Rudolph W. Giuliani, John McCain, Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson, have each said they will not participate in the forum focusing on issues facing minority voters. Their absence has drawn the ire of Tavis Smiley, the talk-show host who is moderating and organizing the debate at Morgan State University; he said the candidates are making a mistake in not reaching out to black voters.
A list of confirmed participants released yesterday also omits Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado, a staunch opponent of current immigration policy. Confirmed are Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Alan L. Keyes of Maryland, Rep. Duncan Hunter of California and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, organizers said.
Also yesterday, former Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele, the chairman of GOPAC, a Republican political action committee, said in a statement that he was "hopeful" each missing candidate would "adjust his schedule" to participate.

You may want to look at what else was in those bills.
If they were ‘naked’ bills (no amendments), then there’s an issue. If not, Paul’s NO vote probably had nothing to do with the main part of the bill.****
He might have an issue dealing with “posse comitas ??) and sending the troops to the border. The American military is not supposed to be used to enforce domestic laws.
You KNOW the answer to that question.
Not only did Rep. Duncan Hunter receive applause for the NALEO, he received A STANDING OVATION! :)
Rep. Duncan Hunter can be counted on to stand solid on the policies he has always offered. He is a man who says what he means and does what he says. A promise from Rep. Hunter is a done deal. He will be everybody’s president.

>Why should any Rep. candidate subject themselves to questioning by a Dem. operative who makes no secret as to where he stands politically? I credit those who don’t attend for good judgment.<
What did we think of the Dem. candidates for not debating on FNC? You sound just like a Dem., kabar.
The contrast between the question and the answer given will reveal what needs to be known about the candidate.
GO DUNCAN HUNTER!
>Do you understand now?
Oh well, I tried anyways.<
Is it really necessary to be such an arrogant a$$, counterpunch?
Unless you’re supporting Sean Hannity’s version of “conservatism”, the last time I checked this is a CONSERVATIVE site...not a LIEbertarian site. The hemp-lover’s LIEberalitarian site is down the block....
When Ron Paul has got the MoveOn, Code-pinko, “free-love” hippy crowd backing him and doesn’t dissassociate himself from them, guess what....he just might be a LIBERAL!
And who discovered this?
I swear one thread about something called the "Oregon poll" (a site with a frickin' GMail account for an e-mail address) having some stormfront nuts going to one website and suddenly that's the whole Ron Paul movement. Aside from that, do you have any proof whatsoever? And even if you did, who the hell cares? It's not as if Ron Paul has an active account himself over there or something.
Of course, you're not really interested in any of that. Anything that fits your imaginary belief of Paul-supporters must be true.
Maybe that’s like the “virtual fence” that others keep pushing....more empty words, a few new gadgets and un-manned aerial vehicles and still have a wide-open border.
>Just because a candidate decided not to attend the Values Voter debate, doesn’t mean he’s ‘turning on Christian voters and abandoning God’, anymore than not attending the Baltimore debate means he doesnt care about minority voter<
No matter how you deny it, SuziQ, it definitely does come across that way.
You actually think your pathetic little thread means "the word is out"?
I’m talking about HERE.
And the thread can really neither be pathetic nor little if it gets you Paulbearers into such agitation.
Plenty of people on that thread posted to say “I had no idea!” No doubt many more reached the same conclusion but did not post. It also brought more eyes to SJackson’s excellent research.
As I said, spin it however you want, but the word is out.
Guess what? You don’t own this site, and you don’t get to say who can stay and who must go. I’m here, and I’m staying.
How many is that? One? Two? Do you honestly think your thread cost Ron Paul any real amount of votes?
spin it however you want
You're the only one spinning. What the hell is the "Oregon poll" anyway? A blogger account with a GMail e-mail address and about 400 page views before you posted it? Also, is this your idea of anything meaningful? How'd you find that nothing site anyways? Is it yours?
When you find some real proof, like at the least maybe a link to CNN or Fox News saying most of the hits to their internet polls came from stormfronters voting for Ron Paul, let me know.
