NEWT: I'M 'NOT GOING TO ALLOW' SILENT DEBATE AUDIENCE

I'm not sure who this guy thinks he is but is he powerful enough to dictate to the sponsors of these clown shows about audience participation? Is he unable to function (much like Palin did) without the antagonism, booing, loud yelling, etc. of an audience? I so wish someone would publicly put this a$$ in his place..

1. Anybody remember, prior to 1987, when the League of Women Votes used to host

all the debates? The reason they stopped hosting them was because the candidates all wanted to impose their 'rules' on them. Here's what they said and boy, were they right!

The League of Women Voters is withdrawing sponsorship of the presidential debates...because the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetrate a fraud on the American voter. It has become clear to us that the candidates' organizations aim to add debates to their list of campaign-trail charades devoid of substance, spontaneity and answers to tough questions. The League has no intention of becoming an accessory to the hoodwinking of the American public.

2. The real Newt always comes out

I have no problem with President Obama handling Newt in any type of debate
