I have saying for years that the participants of political parties are cowards….they are more worried about their appearance on TV than they are worried about the people that claim to represent.
The GOP is once again proving my point……this time it is about debates….
GOP unhappiness with the commission that runs the presidential debates reached a peak Thursday, when the Republican National Committee told the nonprofit it wants its candidates to sit out the event in the future. The committee told the nonprofit in a letter that it plans to require its candidates to sign a pledge promising to stay out of future events sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates, the New York Times reports. Party Chair Ronna McDaniel referred in the letter to giving candidates an “opportunity elsewhere” to debate, but there’s no word on what that forum would be or whether the Democratic Party would sign on.
McDaniel’s Democratic counterpart accused the GOP of trying to hide its candidates from voters, per the Hill. “During the last presidential election, the Republicans decided to not have a platform for the first time ever so it’s a natural progression,” Jaime Harrison said. “First no platform and now no debates.” The commission, which was launched by both parties in 1987 and is billed as nonpartisan, said the Republican Party wants changes in the way the debates are handled. Democrats have not called for any changes. If the commission blocks “meaningful reforms necessary to restore its credibility,” McDaniel said, the party will look elsewhere.
A Republican official and a commission official have been talking for months about the party’s complaints that Democrats are favored by the process. The commission said that as a neutral entity, “which neither favors nor disfavors any party or candidate,” it doesn’t negotiate over its process with anyone. Its officials wonder if someone’s confusing the campaigns in the primary and general—when there’s only one candidate left per party—races. The commission doesn’t have anything to do with debates during the primaries. The RNC will vote on the pledge requirement next month.
Of course they want out of the debates for their candidates have NO platform to defend….all they have is misinformation and lies, slogans and other such nonsense.
This is how cowards act.
Thank you GOP for helping to prove my point that you d/bags are COWARDS!

They should think back to the days before TV, when a politician simply HAD to be a good orator, and have something to say in front of a crowd that might be heckling him/her.
Best wishes, Pete.
Now all they need is a FB account and Twitter…..chuq
The debates rarely are worth the watch and mostly serve to highlight “gotcha” moments. Trump’s performance was the worst one ever, regardless of how I regard him as a person.
THey are not ‘debates’….just PR events chuq
Yeah. And not that informative at that.
