    Do the USMB RWers support this poppy show of a debate slate to be hosted by Trump c/o Newsmax?

    Who is Newsmax anyway? They are not only a step down from The FOXNews, but also of Drudge, essentially the hackiest of RW hack job sites.

    Here's the breakdown of who's slated to go and who's not.

    Attending:
    Gingrich
    Santorum


    Not Attending:
    Romney
    Paul
    Hunstman
    Perry
    Bachmann


    What's your thoughts on this guys, weigh in. Especially the RWers.

    The republicans who are not attending are making a mistake by passing up the opportunity for exposure of their ideas.

    The big winner will be Rick Santorum who will move up to #2 and sink Romney even further down the line.

    How do you figure that skipp?

    Neither the host nor the sponsor are credible or serious people.

    How do you justify having the Republican candidates kowtow and genuflect to a circus barker that's threatening to run as an Independent?

    How does it make the GOP look to attend the equivalent of an Celebrity Rag magazine sponored debate?

    Get serious katz.

    Kind of a telling list there. Trump is a self promoter. A Don King with blond hair. He probably made a media commitment to Fox where he would put together a reality TV show called 'I want to be President!'.

    Looks like he was 'Fired'.

    Gingrich has his staff scurrying about trying to figure out how to get out of this...

    If Romney and the rest don't want their views put out there, it's okay with me if the only one talking is Gingrich and Santorum. The reality is, everyone is going to be watching this debate. Donald Trump is very popular no matter what people say. Rick Santorum is a low man on the candidate totem pole. He will be heard, Romney and the rest won't. Santorum will get a big boost from that.

    Rather than cancel the debate, invite a few non candidates and have a round table discussion instead.

    It’s as if Trump is trying single-handedly to reelect Obama.

    It’s the ‘exposure of their “ideas”’ that will keep them all from becoming president.

    I still think they should do a dunk tank.

    I agree. A roundtable should go down. They should invite Orly Taitz and USArmyretired, Trump and ol Newt. Comedy gold.
