    Democrats throw fits when challenged on merits and facts.

    They would much rather lie and hide from debate.

    Why would Perry make such a weird request? Why would Pelosi ever want to do this? Theres nothing to gain by doing this. Weird.

    Perry would make this request because he needs more traction with his republican primary voters and this both gives him media air time and, if pelosi said yes, a chance to play up to the base.

    Pelosi has nothing to gain and no reason to do it.

    Perry has facts? Do you think he'd remember them by the time the debate rolled around? :lol:

    This sort of thing really illustrates what a joke the Republican party has become.

    Pewrry knew she would say no and now he's going to make "hay" about it. Perry has some terrible ideas. That is why he's in the place he is.

    Don't think they want to get too deep into that. I have a feeling that would tar everybody. Good for us, but I don't see them volunteering info. Perry's probably being taken to the woodshed right now, if that was his agenda.
