Will you look at this:
Two more Republican candidates — Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry — said thanks but no thanks to an invitation to participate in an Iowa debate managed by real estate mogul Donald Trump.
The Dec. 27 affair has now just two committed participants, one at the top of the GOP field and one distant aspirant, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, respectively.
The debate is now down to Trump, Santorum, and Gingrich. This debate should be the ultimate neo-con circle jerk filled with endless talk about how we need to bomb the sand people in the Middle East because they hate us for our freedom and such. Trump seems a little confused about the entire ordeal:
But he said he was surprised that Romney backed out. And as for Perry and others: “What do they have to lose?”
Their time and dignity? Let’s face it, if you’re running for presiden there are more productive ways to spend your time then talking to Trump. For example you could play a few rounds of solitarie or twiddle your thumbs. Either way with only those three at the debate it won’t be a debate but and echo chamber.
