Sign the Petition and Save the Debate

Filed under: Debate — Psycheout @ 1:13 pm

As already mentioned here at B4B, Romney may chicken out of the CNN/YouTube debate in September. Giuliani has already jumped ship.

Patrick Ruffini and other bloggers have joined together to pen a petition. And I, for one, think this is well worth signing.

Save the Debate

Here’s an excerpt:

To: Sam Brownback, Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee, Duncan Hunter, Mitt Romney, Tom Tancredo, and Tommy Thompson

We’ve read the news reports that only two of your fellow candidates have agreed to attend the Republican Party of Florida/YouTube debate, and there are major candidates considering snubbing the event.

As Republicans, we believe this is a serious mistake. Every Democratic candidate eagerly accepted the opportunity to answer questions from the American people via YouTube, even Hillary Clinton, the most cautious and calculating of the bunch.

Attend the YouTube debate, and you may get a tough question or two. Don’t attend, and millions of Americans will wonder if you were too afraid to answer questions from the Internet, just as Democrats were afraid to go on Fox News. None of you could have gotten to where you are now without showing real political courage. Is that really how you’d like to be known?

I couldn’t agree more. We need more debates, not fewer. Well done, Patrick.

  1. I agree. What are they afraid of?

  2. That might be a good thing as it will give Sam more time to present himself and show the non-participants in their true colors.

  3. Well, what do you know – for once we agree on something! I’m sick and tired of all of these carefully pre-crafted “debates” that have been the norm over the past few elections.

  4. I believe they are just scared to death because they know that Sam Brownback will talk circles around them. They may be Godless and stupid but they know when they are licked, I’ll give them that.

    Well, indyandy, perhaps I should reconsider my position. Just kidding!

    I’m glad that you’re coming around to our way of thinking. The truth is infectious and addictive, isn’t it? The truth shall set you free.

  6. “The truth is infectious and addictive”

    I hate to point something like this out, but you mistyped something. You meant to say ‘lying’ instead of ‘the truth’ Psycheout. Right? I mean, you do like lying an awful lot.

  7. […] Filed under: Idiocy, Debate, Media — Psycheout @ 1:44 pm While I’m in favor of the CNN/YouTube debate, one has to draw the line somewhere. I think someone has just found that line. MySpace and MTV […]
