Trump’s Debate Goes Down In Flames
December 8, 2011 |
It looks like nobody wants to waste their time dealing with Donald Trump. Originally I was a little confused about Ron Paul’s decision not to attend. I figured a politician like Paul would want to get his message out at any given opportunity. But now I can see that Ron Paul knew all along that Trump’s debate is a joke. Not only has Ron Paul opted out of the debate, but every major GOP candidate except Santorum and Gingrich have decided against attending.
I think everyone started to realize that the debate probably would have ended up being an endorsement of Newt Gingrich, while Mr. Trump did everything in his power to discredit the other candidates. Even if that weren’t the case, it’s still probably a better move to distance yourself from someone like Donald Trump. Yes, the guy understands business, but he has also said some pretty wacky things that may not sit so well with the average voter. It should also be noted that Obama has been (rightly) criticized for being treated like a celebrity. Do we really want to deal with that in the GOP as well?
It will be interesting to see if Santorum drops out as well, leaving Trump to go ahead and give his celebrity endorsement to Newt.
