    Fox's Chris Wallace calls out Mitt Romney for Sunday show absence

    Four GOP hopefuls hit the Sunday talk shows this week, a roster that did not include ostensible front-runner Mitt Romney.

    The absence was pointedly noted by "Fox News Sunday's" Chris Wallace, who concluded his one-on-one interview with Texas Gov. Rick Perry with a not particularly subtle shot at the former Massachusetts governor.

    "With Gov. Perry's appearance, we have now interviewed all the major Republican candidates in our 2012 one-on-one series except Mitt Romney. He has not appeared on any Sunday talk show since March of 2010," Wallace said.

    "We invited Gov. Romney, but his campaign says he's still not ready to sit down for an interview," he added.

    What is his problem?? He's not ready??? Is he kidding?? Seems to be a foregone conclusion that he will be the nominee. I can't wait to see him debate Obama!!! That is, if they can talk him into it. :lol::lol::lol:

    Maybe he thinks Chris Wallace is a waste of time and DNA. WHo's to say he's wrong?

    Romney's picture should be in the dictionary beside "flip-flop". I previously thought he was the GOP savior - but not any more. He seems to have some screws loose. Maybe some electric shock therapy would help him. Having said all that, he remains the sanest one of the bunch.

    Well, simple enough reason. The more people see Romney, the less they like him.

    That's why he's yet to top 30% in any GOP preference poll. We know him the best and we REALLY don't like him.

    He's robotic, unsymathetic, is apt to say weird things, and, oh, yeah, he belongs to a crazy religion.

    He's like the guy who has the awesome resume, but the minute you get him into the interview room, he creeps you the fuck out and you go with the less qualified guy.

    So they are probably trying to limit his exposure as much as possible.

    Watching as much Chris Matthews as I can stand to watch... Five liberals, all telling us that our only chance to beat Obama is to nominate the Weird Mormon Robot.

    ...public health care plan. The two are identical liberal clones of one another. Either pick Mitt Obama or Barack Romney... one in the same.

    there's no upside to romney doing the talking head circuit. he can't move further right and start mimicking the teatards. he can't defend his natural position... which is in the middle, because he won't make it past the rightwingnuts during the primary process. people already don't trust him.

    his campaign strategy, if you can call it one, is to stay quiet, let each of the flavors of the week run their course and then hope he comes through the primary process.

    if i were one of his advisors, i'd tell him to do what he's doing, too. he's already going to have enough trouble going back to the middle for the general election. and he's very much going to have a problem going after the president on health care, considering he used it in Mass and the fact that the plan was mostly a Heritage Foundation rightie plan to begin with.

    yeah, because it's not like being anti-choice and wanting to continue running the country on voodoo supply side economics isn't the same as the dem position, right?

    :cuckoo:
