    The cowardly brave stand against Trump

    The cowardly brave stand against Trump

    Rick Santorum was right about the rank hypocrisy of GOP candidates who seek Donald Trump’s endorsement but will not appear at the NewsMax debate because Trump is the moderator:

    “Many of my opponents jockeyed to be the first to fly up to New York and use Donald Trump for a photo op and no doubt try and secure an endorsement. But when Donald wants to moderate a debate – they refuse to attend. That’s what’s so wrong with politics today – hypocrisy,”

    Andrew Breitbart makes an even more important point. The boycotting candidates do not hesitate to go on MSNBC, and I’ll add to that, Letterman and The View, which day in and day out mock conservatives.

    While the decision to boycott the NewsMax debate was couched as a brave stand against a “reality show” atmosphere, what it really reflected was fear of being criticized for appearing with Trump by the folks at MSNBC and The View.

    The entire mainstream media is a reality show intended to make Republican candidates look bad, and any candidate who has not figured that out yet hasn’t figured anything out.

    Can’t get the video to run. Watched the show last night, but agreed so completely I want to watch it again!

    funny everyone at hot air is fine with them appearing on mainstream media debates but have some sort of huge issue with them appearing here.
    I don’t get it, what would trump do thats so bad here? ask a hard question?
    I am NOT a fan of trumps, but this bellyaching is ridiculous.
    and the rnc hates the idea too…so its growing on me.

    While this could be a “reality show atmosphere”, and it could be a show that is “all about Trump”, who might be a potential candidate, I suspect that all realize that Trump intends conduct a serious discussion. I suspect therefore, that those declining to participate are just afraid of his questioning.

    I suspect this goes back to the birth certificate fiasco. That might play well to the right, but its deadly toxic in a general to most indies. Guilt by association yada yada yada.

    @janitor – you took the words right out of my mouth!

    The only reason to not do this debate is because you are afraid. Trump knows the economy and business – free-market capitalism – inside out, as well as how money nationally and internationally is manipulated. They, for the most part, don’t.

    Those not willing to take up the challenge are not willing to go up against someone tough, either out of fear from the MSM (ridicule is the favorite tool of MSM Alinsky-ites), or just plain fear of their ignorance compared to Trump’s knowledge.

    Trump is not going to run third party, IMHO, because he KNOWS that would lock Obama into another term. Unless that is what he really wants, then he won’t run third party.

    He is not going to make this into “The Apprentice” either. That would kill the show’s ratings and credibility.

    Trump is many things, but he is NOT stupid.

    Those who turned down this opportunity fear looking ignorant, IMHO.

    Which is too bad, especially for Bachmann. I believe that with Santorum and Newt as the only other Conservative (or “mostly Conservative,” as Newt has many saying he is not a “true” Conservative) panelists/debaters, she could show her strengths in arena. She, more than the others, is making a bad choice, IMHO, because she has the most to gain from the forum.
