    that if Obama were REALLY interested in fairness, he'd use his money to air ads for Clinton.

    You know, so he doesn't have an unfair money advantage.

    •  yeah that's a reasonable conclusion on your part (1+ / 0-)

      Expecting Obama to debate in states other than the ones he's losing is definitely tantamount to expecting Obama to pay for Hillary's campaign ads.

      Bullshit much?

      •  A Fox News debate is a good idea? (0+ / 0-)

        We've had 18 debates, with 2 more scheduled.

        The people of Wisconsin are not clamoring for a debate.  Hillary Clinton is desperate for a debate, because she is sorely behind in grassroots support and ad money.

        So desperate, in fact, that she's willing to sign a deal with the devil (Fox News) to do it.

        Your talking point is hollow.  We've had an excess of debates, so it's lame to call him a coward.  And he's been the underdog the entire race -- can you give me the LONG list of states where he was leading but refused to debate?

        It's this one state only.  And it's because Clinton is grasping at straws.  But keep pushing for a Fox News debate... you're sure to win Democratic friends.

        •  Fox News treats her better than MSNBC (0+ / 0-)

          if we should be picking TV networks based on who gives us better treatment (which you're advocating), then it makes sense for her to do a Fox News debate, using your argument.

            And a Democrat legitimizing Fox News with a debate because it temporarily suits her is embarrassing.

            They're nice to her now because they see an opportunity to destroy her in the general.  Fox has not been kind to her (or any Democrats, save Lieberman) in the past.

          •  umm yeah... (0+ / 0-)

            they want her to be the nominee for 2 reasons:

            1. they've got enough dirt on her to boost their ratings for years
            1. they see McCain beating her, and want a Repug in office.

            Any questions...
