    LOL

    I'm totally shocked Angle would back out of a debate. I would pay to see her in an unscripted event

    Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) finally agreed on Thursday to the Oct. 21 Reno event set to air on Ralston's "Face to Face" TV program. This came after Angle challenged Reid to do so several months ago.
    We have other events planned for October 21 and we've long contended that debates be held before early voting."

    may as well get both sides... nice try to turn it around. reid's

    too liberal, i wish steve wynn would run

    You need to look up the definition of demurred. And of course, perhaps you didn't notice I bolded how Reid waited in my original post.

    Try harder next time, nice try though. :thup:

    So did it really take months for Reid to "accept" to a debate? If that's the case then why is this even a thread? More important why are you not being hard on Reid for not doing the debate months ago when he was asked, if in fact it was asked months ago?

    I'm not picking sides here, just pointing out that this thread might be a load of BS.

    Yeah, it's important that our political leaders are eloquent and look good on camera. That's really the only way to ensure that they'll do a good job once in office.

    Like for instance, Barack Obama.

    A facepalm story to share. I don't like Harry Reid at all, and I am amazed at how incompetent the GOP/Tea Party was in Nevada by picking Angle who is somehow worse than Harry Reid of all people.

    Angle has avoided the media for months, she basically tried to bluff Reid on this and when he finally called it, she backed down.
