Just dawned on me this morning
The number of debates... GOP debates show how fearful they are of Obama's debating skills. Its a tryouts of sort to find the best one.

Half way through, they still have yet to find that person who can stand toe to toe and beat Obama in a debate.

You can tell how afraid they are of you, by how they fight you. They take Obama's oratory skills very seriously.

2. I hate to tell them, but...
they might want to do most of their practicing in private.

Where people aren't going to hear them making fools of themselves.

OK, maybe the family dog will laugh, but fortunately, dogs can't vote.

3. I think it's mostly cheap television exposure.
and when they are over they continue to echo in free media clips.

4. I think people are getting tired of looking at those people.
Been there, done that way too many times. What sane person would watch them except in hopes of seeing another train wreck?

6. Let's say for a minute that Cain is a good public speaker,
he still doesn't have a clue what he's speaking about.

10. They also fear Obama taking it to the people.
Edited on Sat Nov-12-11 02:55 PM by DearAbby
They understand how persuasive Obama can be, thus attacking his bus, saying he is in full campaign mode. They attack what they fear.
