    1. "Today, Democratic pollster (Jimmy Carter’s former pollster) Pat Caddell said on the Sean Hannity show that with President Obama’s track record of going back on his word during campaigns, that President Obama may decide not to debate teh (sic) GOP presidential candidate in 2012.

    2. He cited Obama’s stating he would finance his 2008 presidential campaign in 2008 with public money as did John McCain and then turning around and saying no, he’ll privately finance it so he could raise much more money as one reason why anything is possible in 2012.

    3. “He definitely can say no to debates. He can do anything he wants"...
    » Pat Caddell Says Obama May Turn Down Debating the GOP Candidate in 2012 (a bad example for bloggers) » Brian Humek

    4. Caddell said the media will back him up in any way he needs them to....how's that for definitive proof of the media's Left-wing stance?

    5. Well...if Caddell is correct, does this eliminate a major reason for a Newt Gingrich candidacy?

    If Gingrich gets the nod from the party and Obama doesn't agree to a debate, he's done. All it would take is one and then the country would see that he doesn't have the leadershop skills or record to continue as president. Can you imagine the ads against Obama?

    This is just spin so the Republicans can back down from endorsing Gingrich. The administration is scared to death of Gingrich.

    Why is President Clinton coming out in support of Gingrich on O'Reilly? Very confusing!

    I've been hearing this for a few days now. Especially if Gingrich is the nominee. obama would be a fool to debate him.

    Fortunately Gingrich saw this coming and has said he would follow obama around the country giving a speech after every one obama gives attacking everything he says. If it's Romney, he would do well to follow that example.

    It doesnt eliminate Newt. I dont feel Obama would debate him. Obama is as spineless as they come.

    Newt would do a good job at reving up government and correcting the mistakes and intentional criminal conduct by this admin. But after that you need to watch him as closely if not closer then Obama. But the country would be moving.

    Gingrich knows the ropes...despite his 'baggage'...and could make mince meat of Obama.

    I did hear that interview by the way.

    That is a dumb question. Is a major reason for a Newt candidacy related to whether or not his opponent will engage in debates?

    Caddell isn't correct.

    If for no other reason then the American people will demand their political theater, there will be debates.

    Well, that was easy.

    As to Newt stating (re:RomneyPac Commercials)...should be stopped? Romney did make a good point that he should get used to it because Obama would unleash a torrent of negatives should Newt be the nominee.
