Mitt Romney says the RNC 'would be nuts' to block GOP candidates from participating in debates

Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah on Thursday blasted the Republican National Committee's plans to prohibit future GOP presidential candidates from participating in debates sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates.

Romney, the party's 2012 presidential nominee and the uncle of current RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, said the decision would deprive the American people of the opportunity to hear candidates "duke it out."

"Well, that would be nuts," Romney told Insider at the Capitol. "The American people want to see candidates for president debating issues of consequence to them, and it provides a service to the country and to the people, to hear the prospective candidates of the two major parties duke it out."

The New York Times first reported earlier Thursday that the RNC is preparing to amend its rules, and Insider obtained a letter from the party to the debate commission's co-chairs, Frank Fahrenkopf and Kenneth Wollack.

That's your party today Mittens. Your dad would be considered a RINO.

1. His Dad?

I think it's likely that Mittens is considered a RINO now.

15. He was considered a RINO even in 1994

I remember his Senate run against Ted Kennedy very well.

5. Dipshit still thinks

he might be President someday. Almost as bad as Cruz in this matter. Worse than Cruz in how he got his money.

6. Not in today's GQP.

He had his shot and he wasted it talking about Florida’s trees being “just the right size.”

8. Makes perfect sense.

Why let the public see how crazy the republicon who will be installed via cheating really is. It will make the steal more digestible for the large number of voters who don't pay much attention anyway.

14. Dotard skipped one debate in the 2016 primaries but scooted right back in because he could not stand

16. Trump can't make it to the presidency if there are debates

The RNC can "advise him" not to participate and he can hang his hat on that. Will accusations of cowardice sway enough people to force Trump and other yahoo types to participate?
