    Well, here comes the nightly smattering of left-wingnut crap.

    I think the GOP is above debate in a circus, unlike the DNC. :)

    Who the hell wants to have be asked a question by.............a SNOWMAN..:rolleyes:

    And the Democrats won't go on FOX NEWS, because moveon and dailykos tells them not to..So....guess who isn't going on the Fox news debate.?........ALL OF THE DEMOCRATS.......Even thought Fox is the #1 news channel...

    Myself...I think the Republican should go on....and when a stupid question is asked, like (what do you think about having Bill Clinton back in the white house)...

    They should just laugh their asses off and then say, can we have a REAL QUESTION, PLEEEEEEEEEEEESE....:lol:

    Big deal. I'd say that having the GOP candidates skip the CNN/YouTube debacle...er...debate is a little less offensive than the DNC candidates skipping the Fox News/Congressional Black Caucus debate.

    I watched the CNN/YouTube debate, it was a joke.

    Other than to stave off any, "You don't value the opinions/questions of the American people," idiocy, I can't see any reason for any candidate to take place in a ludicrous debate like the CNN/YouTube debates.

    The questions were pathetic - and CNN actually PICKED those...I shudder to think about what else was asked. And the forum meant that even if there was a somewhat interesting question - only one or two candidates answered it. (Hillary, for instance, got out of answering numerous questions that would have tied her down to positions she has been notoriously squishy on)

    A talking snowman asking questions of a potential future president of this nation is not exactly where I want to see our democracy headed. And while I can't speak for everyone, I really don't need to waste my time listening to candidates critique each others fashion sense. I don't know anyone who watched the debates and thought - Yea! About time we could ask our presidential candidates questions in song form! In fact, the only people who seemed excited about this debate were the CNN/YouTube employees hyping it...and the Democratic Candidates who knew it was going to be an evening of softball questions.

    Why the Republicans would put themselves up for this sort of idiocy for anything other than to avoid the predictable caterwauling that would ensue if they didn't is beyond me.

    Here's the bigger joke of the CNN/youtube debate...
    There were 3000 entries of questions....Guess WHO? went through and weeded out the questions that CNN wanted to be asked from...US REGULAR FOLK....

    PT. Barnum was right......:lol:
