Does anyone here think maybe the debates are not going to happen? With the awful, terrible, week

that Willard is having, his numbers spiraling down the tubes, the ridicule he's receiving not only here but 'round the globe, I think he may decide it just isn't worth it. I wouldn't doubt there are some serious "debate, should we or shouldn't we" sessions going on right now. If they're honest...hahahaha, but seriously, if they were to have an inkling of reality set in, a debate with POTUS will shovel the dirt over the coffin.

Is there a feasible way he can back out? Has it been done before? If you needed to come up with a DUzy of an excuse to bail, what would it be? Just curious.

3. No. The debates are his only hope.

He has to try and do something to pull his candidacy out of the toilet.

7. What I saw he is really bad

He rambles and refuses to answer anything. He also have a tendency to keep his eyebrows raised up, so his eyes bug out and he turns very red. He literally looks like a deer in the headlights.

6. It'll be his best chance to display his colossal stupidity before a national audience

Until now it's been limited to hit-and-miss gaffes.

8. Willard thinks he's ahead and going strong.

There's no way he will avoid the debates. He's not smart enough. He's certainly not self-aware, at all.

9. President Obama needs to push on him at the debates so Willard loses his cool

It is said Willard has a fiery temper

10. The one VP debate and the 3 presidential debates are set in stone. If Romney fails to show up ...


... he will look like an idiotic wimp.
More than he does now.

14. Remember how foolish McCain looked trying to suspend his campaign and cancel debates?

A crisis makes the debates more important, not less.

Mitt and Paul Ryan's only debate strategy will be to tell so many lies that Obama and Biden won't be able to response to them all.

15. as the Republican spokesman Rush L. said, "he could be Elmer Fudd"

The men behind the curtain don't care what Romney says in the debates, all he has to do is speak words for his 2 minute turns.

16. Like a fighter down heavily in the points going into the final round

Mitt will be swinging hard but hitting nothing to the final bell.

17. Backing out of the debates would be the worst tactical move Mitt's made yet.

And this is the guy who smirked his way through a presser about dead Americans in Libya.
