Shocker: politicians are scared of citizen questions
Mitt Romney is apparently going to pull out of the next CNN/Youtube "debate" because he doesn't want to answer questions like those from snowmen. Rudy Giuliani is likewise unsure. Hugh Hewitt thinks it will turn into a chance for CNN to ask a series of leftwing questions, and is suggesting against taking part.
A look at the questions for the debate submitted so far shows that they have little to fear. Unless, of course, they're afraid of asking a question from a hot dog (link). Maybe Sharon Fox has them scared. Maybe it was the worthless question asking them to simply state their position on illegal immigration. Maybe it was the question giving them a golden opportunity to nail Bill Richardson for his support for giving universal healthcare to illegal aliens. In any case, none of the questions are as difficult as the ones I've made, and I haven't even got around to making any videos for the GOP.
If these candidates can't even withstand these puffballs, just think how they'd handle some really tough questions, such as those at the last link, or these for John Edwards or John McCain. All it takes is a few people to get out on the campaign trail with a video camera and ask some tough questions and then publicize the answers, and not only would that have an effect on the presidential race, it would also help reveal even more just how corrupt the mainstream media is.
Since we now know where the candidates are weakest, why isn't anyone taking advantage of it?
