Mitt Romney has decided to blow off the first Republican Presidential Debate co-sponsored by Fox News and the South Carolina GOP this Thursday night, May 5.
That’s all right with both Fox and SC Republicans, neither of whom hold Romney in high regard. The decision is in keeping with Romney’s “stealth campaign” in which he refuses to participate in any venue which would require him to answer the questions: “What’s the difference between RomneyCare and ObamaCare?”, “Do you still favor an individual health care insurance mandate like the one in RomneyCare?” and “Would you be willing to select another Obama favorite, Jon Huntsman, as your running mate?” Romney joins Newt Gingrich, Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee, and Donald Trump as “candidates who aren’t really candidates and don’t want to debate the issues but do want to be anointed the Republican nominee for President. Predictions: (1) None of the above will win the Republican nomination. (2) Romney will be out of the race by Feb. 7, as he was in 2008.
