Mitt Romney May Be First Presidential Candidate to Refuse a Debate
Already it has been shown that Romney is avoiding the press at all costs. Any questions about funding or tax cuts have been reverted to the same answer, ‘We’ll talk about it when I’m president.’ President Barack Obama has announced several times that he is willing to debate with Mitt Romney ‘anytime, anywhere’, but Romney diverts from the question of the debate as if he didn’t even hear it.
Romney has been given many chances to debate but has refused each one. One of them was back in January 2012. NBC had scheduled a Monday night debate for Romney on January 23rd 2012 but just 3 days before the debate began, NBC cancelled it. The reason still remains unknown but it could be due to his refusal to commit to it. NBC reverted back to its regular programming for that night.
So why isn’t Romney willing to show himself and talk about the issues of our Nation? Through exclusive interviews it’s been sounding more and more like he’s basically accepting that he’s already won. Forget how he’s going to get the money, it’s just going to work as he’s explained to Bob Schieffer on CBS.
With it already being half way through the year, time is ticking down for the option of the Romney and Obama debate. It will almost certainly be one of the largest factors in the votes this year if it happens. However if the 2012 election goes on without a debate, Romney will be the first in history not to debate before the actual election.
