Dems Too Cowardly To Debate on Fox Channel ~ LOL

Clinton, Obama just say no to Fox
Presidential debate thrown into jeopardy

Both Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama said they would not participate in a presidential debate sponsored by Fox News Channel, throwing the event in jeopardy. The two senators joined former Sen. John Edwards, who announced on Friday he would not participate in the debate, one of four being held by the Congressional Black Caucus Institute.

The Congressional Black Caucus contracted with Fox to co-sponsor two of its debates -- one Democratic and one Republican -- and gave the two others to CNN.

But now the top three Democrats in the race have said they will not participate in the Democratic debate co-sponsored by Fox, which was scheduled for Sept. 23 at the Fox Theater in Detroit.

A spokesman for Obama, who is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, told ABC News he would decline, saying "CNN seems to be a more appropriate host."

Wild Thing's comment.........

How childish is this anyway. And what if the republican candidates refused to participate in debates hosted by the other networks. If Republicans did this... the screaming would never stop. I always thought someone running for President was running to be President of ALL the United States not just those that watch certain news channels.

Ayone who considers themselves worthy of public office, much less the high office of POTUS, should have no qualms about participating in a forum that might be less than sympathetic to their viewpoints.
The fact that all of these so-called dem hopefuls don't even have that much guts makes it crystal clear that absolutely none of them are suitable.

We don't need cowards in the White House.

Barak Obama the frightened. He, Hillary Clinton and Edwards are terrified their views (or lack of) will be exposed. They are like scared rabbits and their contrived excuses are transparent. Leaders they are not.

The Dems have complained about the "two America" comment made back when, I forget who made it first. But they have bitched about it and said it was the Republicans that have made it two America's. Oh really! Well there ARE two America's sweetheart and it is because of how YOU the Democrats want to drive this Nation into the land of socialism ASAP and we are fighting it every step of the way. Dems prove their double standard at every turn in the road and oh how I wish there would be things happening that would put it right in their face what phony's they are.


OK I feel better now, ranting sure does help. hahaha

Holy Moly.
What are they afraid of?
Who knows? They might get more people
interested in them if they did the debate
and that's all it is--a debate.
obviously, they have something to hide.

Thing is with Fox, they'll always have a Democrat Strategist or some Liberal on to represent the other view. You'll never see that on ABC, CBS, NBC, or CNN.

Since Fox is the most watched news channel, they have in effect just raised their middle finger to a good majority of the population. This nation is being divided and the Democrats are leading the charge.

Myself, I wouldn't vote for a Republican that didn't have the kahonas to appear on one of the liberal news channels. I don't want a coward in the White House.

They fear accountability, a subject the likes of a Larry King never broaches. Obama fears an uncontrolled forum where he doesn't have pre-arrainged questions and answers hosted by a sympathetic moderator.

I've seen too many of the 'investigative reporters, like CBS's Harry Reasoner and Mike Wallace, or ABC's Sam Donaldson, at the big three and CNN give a socialist a pass then rip a conservative to shreds in public, yet FOX has given both parties due respect without the sneak attack tactic of bushwhacking the person being interviewed.

Objectivity isn't one of the Democrat's traits as demonstrated in their ideals of free speech, it's you listen we'll speak.

I believe they fear each other's potential attacks in a non-liberal controlled debate. If they open up in a vicious attack, democrap on democrap, they could jeopardize the Democrap ticket.
