Honestly. Does anyone really care?
Mitt Romney ® Backs Out Of The Donald’s Circus
“GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney
has decided not to participate in The Newsmax ION Presidential Debate
scheduled for December 27th in Des Moines, Iowa which will be moderated
by business tycoon, and reality TV celebrity Donald Trump.
a short time ago on FOX News, Romney told anchor Neil Cavuto that he
chose against the event because there were already two debates in Iowa
this month and he wanted to spend the rest of the time before the
primaries campaigning and " doing work you have to do."
Romney said he called Trump to inform him of his decision.
" He understood my perspective and wished me well, " Romney said.
Amongst the rest of the GOP presidential field, Iowa front-runner Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum have both said they will participate while Ron Paul, and John Huntsman have also rejected the offer.
Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann are still weighing their decisions.
Trump called Michele this morning. We have not confirmed the debate,"
Bachmann Campaign spokeswoman Alice Stewart said to FOX.”
Says: To be brutally honest, who cares? Donald Trump? The
candidates? Newsmax? Well, I’m sure they care because the entire
program might very well “go away” now that Mitt has bowed out.
my humble opinion that the “debate a week” thing has long-since
overstayed its welcome. We could have lived quite nicely without half
of the “made for TV ratings” debates that have been held thus far. If
this one goes away, that’s a good thing.
