they are terrified they'll get another question like they got in new hampshire " how would you utilize a former presdient Bush in YOUR administration". man, they were NOT expecting that question and they had NOTHING except some sour grapes from Tancredo.

Of course, for us Paul fans, this is agreat news.

True enough Lester. For Paul this could be a real windfall if he's the only one who shows up.

Mcain is going too. Republicans in general are totally hostile to this. not just the candidates but their supporters. it's elitist. They think ordinary americans are idiots who can't possibly have a worthwhile question to ask. Thuogh I have to say, some of the jokey questions at the last debate seem to have gotten a negative response from people looking for serious ...ness. and I can relate to that.

The GOP needs the media. they've beaten them down to the point where the best they can do is meek, alan colmes type useful idiot-isms. "the people" haven't been properly trained, so establishment types are fearful.

I didn't watch the debates and I doubt if I ever will. I think they're all gimmicky and pointless but if they're going to have them, then the candidates need to show up.

I have no doubt the front runners are dodging out of fear.
