Romney May Chicken Out of Debate

Filed under: Debate,Election 2008,Idiocy,Mitt Romney,Rudy Giuliani — Psycheout @ 12:18 pm

Plucked ChickenFirst he’s “scaling down” his Ames straw poll efforts and now he may forgo the next debate in September.

Republican Mitt Romney isn’t sure yet whether he’ll participate in the CNN/ Republican debate in September, but he’s no fan of the format.

Methinks Mitty is skeered.

“I think the presidency ought to be held at a higher level than having to answer questions from a snowman,” he said in an interview yesterday.

Oh noes! Are you afraid the public might have some questions for you, even through a puppet? Perhaps Triumph the Insult Comic Dog might come after you to avenge Seamus. Or maybe Elmer Fudd will ask you questions about hunting. How about Ron Jeremy asking you a little something about porno, a subject which you know so much about. Max Factor might even enquire about makeup. Flipper could question you on your many stances on a number of issues.

Ask Mitt Nothing Let’s face it, OvenMitt, you’re afraid of the American people. And this isn’t the “presidency.” This is the campaign. If you can’t take the heat, you’d best get out of the kitchen. Get used to it or get out.

I am reminded of this little ditty:

When danger reared it’s ugly head
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Mittens.

Giuliani PincushionUpdate: America’s Mayor has already wimped out. Smooth move, Rudy. Could John McCain be next? Watch the RINOs run! Watch those chicken feathers fly!

Update 2: Within a minute of my update, JayPe quickly pointed out that maverick McCain has bucked the running RINO tendency to flee from a non-scripted debate. I owe him an apology. John McCain, you are a fine man and a war hero. And I deeply and humbly apologize for lumping you in with spineless chickens like Giuliani and Romney. Good luck in the debate.

And if you’re not reading Race 4 2008 every day (after B4B, of course), you should. They’ve got some great posters and smart commenters.

Update 3: Michelle Malkin is right. Let the debates go on.

…conservatives shouldn’t abandon YouTube to the moonbats and jihadists.

Amen to that!

  1. Well! I’ve managed to get over my faint about the shirts. This blog shows me its the bomb once again with its excellent reporting and analysis. Some candidates are rising in the polls and some are falling. I’d really like to see Browback on top of Mitt Rommney.

    I’m sure Mr. Brownback can deliver an issue that would make Rommney yell! and all his wussy children.

  2. Why would he back out after winning the first 3 debates? Raising the most money? Winning Ames (soon)? Winning Iowa and NH (soon).

    He’s the only guy with enough brains to beat Hillary and therefore gets my vote.

  3. We report what he said. You decide what you think it means.

  4. “I’d really like to see Browback on top of Mitt Rommney.”

    I’ll bet you would.

    “I like to see a man packing a big gun who is not afraid to shoot it off.”

  6. Zune, if brains were dynamite, Mittens wouldn’t have enough to blow his hat off. You’re really reaching there, stupid. But MittMinds are as one. And too dim to light up a room when combined into one undulating mass of stupidity.

  8. “I think the presidency ought to be held at a higher level than having to answer questions from a snowman,” he said in an interview yesterday.

    Romney, that snowman is one of your 301,139,947 potential employers. You might want to clean up your attitude, mister.

    He’s barely started campaigning, let alone entered into office, and he ALREADY thinks that he’s a) better than us, and b) not obligated to answer questions from American taxpayers?

    I’m disgusted with him.

  10. […] That is right on the money. It’s interesting that Podhoretz is working for the Giuliani campaign, last I heard. I was under the impression that Rudy had already said he was going to skip the debate. […]

  11. Maybe Mitt’s worried of looking like a fool being interviewed by a snowman. I have to admit I’m with him on this one. The Dems’ debate was a joke. Why exactly wouldn’t this debate be any different?

  12. If Mittens is afraid of a snowman, how is he going to take on a sandman (ie, terrorists)? Mittens should sack up or drop out.

  14. Just stumbled across your blogsite…and I must say, if this is the best attack you can muster on Mr. Romney, you are a pathetic excuse for a political voice.

    You do nothing more than attack him personally, which is a hallmark of those who have insufficient brains to attack on actual issues. I shall seek political stimulation elsewhere.

  15. This Blog reflects poorly on Brownback. I am a Brownback supporter. Something does bother me though: When this campaign is constantly trashing a fellow republican, it makes Brownback look trashy. Tell us what Brownback stands for. Anyone who’s seen any of the debates knows that Romney has pretty much won all of them. Calling Romney afraid to debate makes Brownback lose credibility and look weak. I was also very unimpressed by the Brownback Camp, when they sent out all of that anti-mormon propaganda. Let’s stand up for something of our own or are we just anti-Romney? Romney is clearly a stand-up guy and Brownback seems extrememly jealous of him. It’s embarrassing for the Brownback campaign. Let’s get some integrity!

    Not Impressed
