1st GOP Presidential Debate Postponed: Trump, Palin, Huckabee Too Cowardly To Announce
"The postponement of an upcoming Republican presidential candidate debate in California is the latest indicator that the GOP primary is off to a slow start, but many insiders said the delay won`t hurt potential contenders.
The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation announced Wednesday its May 2 primary debate, co-hosted by Politico and NBC News, would be moved to Sept. 14.
John Heubusch, executive director for the foundation, said in a news release, `Too few (candidates) have made the commitment thus far for a debate to be worthwhile in early May.`"
The Republican presidential aspirants exhibit all the courage of the Cowardly Lion from "The Wizard of Oz." This is a typical statement from a Republican who is considering challenging Obama in 2012: I am exploring the possibility of forming a committee to determine if I should form a presidential exploratory committee. The Republican presidential prospects make Neville Chamberlain look an icon of courage and determination.
It`s hard to believe that there isn`t at least one Republican who will simply declare: I am running for President of the United States.
Donald Trump is a no-nonsense businessman who tells it like it is, but even he is afraid of announcing that he`s running for president. Trump doesn`t care about being politically-correct, witness his demand that Obama release his birth certificate. I`m not familiar with Trump`s political ideology, but I would consider voting for him, his honesty is a breath of fresh air.
Some of the GOP wimps may be waiting until Sarah Palin announces her intentions. To defer to a simpleton like Palin is the epitome of cowardliness.
Obama is lucky that his opponents are so cowardly, he will have no trouble winning re-election.
