Hillary and Obama refuse to debate on Fox
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, April 10, 2007

I have to wonder what would be said if Republican candidates decided CNN and MSNBC were too biased and refused to participate in any events in which they were involved.

I for one would call them a bunch of cowards.

And that's precisely what Ben Smith calls Democrats on the Politico:
The third shoe drops: Hillary's not doing the Fox News/CBC Debate either.

Clinton spokesman Blake Zeff emails, "We're going to participate in the DNC-sanctioned debates only. We've previously committed to participating in the SC and Tavis Smiley debates."

No word yet from Kucinich and Gravel, or the other campaigns, or from Fox, which could presumably do an empty podium hour and confirm to its viewers that Democrats are, in fact, the cowards it's often portrayed them as. Sounds win-win to me.
This is just paranoid and spiteful nonsense. The one thing it does show, again, is how little regard the Democrats really have for the Congressional Black Caucus who, as I understand it, were sponsors of this debate.

What a bunch of cowardly tools. Oh, no, they might ask me tough questions. And yet half the country thinks these same weasels have a clue as how to fight Jihadists?

Where’s the respect for tolerance and diversity? Guess that doesn’t count when that includes tolerating those with whom you disagree.

Or maybe there’s some sort of financial tit for tat with other media outlets? Regardless, what a joke, especially when it comes from the party of: Every problem can be solved by talking.

Just ask Liz Edwards about her neighbor!

I wish they would actually.

If Bush could do a Presidential debate with a CBS moderator after Dan Rather’s hit piece, the Dems could go on Fox.

They are unfit for office. If they can’t handle FNC, how can they handle Iran?

Heh, I guess they’re afraid they may get asked real questions, and not just be able to pop softballs out of the park...

Now, now. Respect for tolerance and diversity does not mean respect for evil and rascism and sexism and ageism and weightism and bigotry and ....

Well, given that Obama and Edwards are lightweights, and Hillery has anger management issues, perhaps it was a good decision on their part.

Maybe they can choose straws to figure out who wins the primary. Or rock-paper-scissors.

I don’t think these candidates are scared of Fox I think they are afraid of the zealots at MoveOn.org and Daily Kos. I find it disturbing that the zealots on the left snap their whip and all these major candidates jump. I don’t know about you but I don’t think it’s a good idea if our next President gets his/her marching orders from MoveOn.org or has to consult them on every major policy issue. I’ve got about as much Bush fatigue as the next guy but this worrisome display will probably keep me from voting for a Democrat.

I think you’re dead right.

FOX should hold the debates and have empty podiums with the missing dems name cards on them.

The problem is Fox is not ‘politically correct’ and since it does not toe the liberal line it must be boycotted. There is more than fear of Fox or Move on here. We are seeing an attempt to marginalize a news outlet because decent can not be tolerated by the left. If they could, Fox would not be allowed to cover Democratic Party events. It has happened before on a smaller scale. The Chicano rights organization MeCHA boycotted a station I worked for, refusing to allow us to cover events they were involved in. I suspect if they though they could get away with it, the National Democratic Party would do the same to Fox.

Bob, I recall that Kerry had to vet both his campaign stratagy and his political policies with George Soros.

Bush had to do no such thing; Republicans get lotsa little donations. The Dems rely upon fewer but larger political donations. The totals come out close, but there is a significant difference in how they get them.

So you want to play with the big boys in Dem politics? Ya gotta dance the right dance . . .

Perhaps I should have said "left dance" in my last post.
