Perry Ready to Skip Debates


rick-perry3Rick Perry, who made clear during his Bill O’Reilly interview last night that he finds the debate formats geared toward promoting a fight, is going to the No. 9 one after that – but is a question mark for some of the glut of face-offs after that.

Perry spokesman Mark Miner said the issue is using time wisely, and noted their campaign is not alone in that.

“I think all the campaigns are expressing frustration right now,” Miner told Politico. “We said we would do Michigan but the primaries are around the corner and you have to use your time accordingly.”

  1. Perry was the most contentious of all the candidates at the last debate; so his criticism is ironic. The debates have the potential to be informative and useful, but the media tries to use them for entertainment to appease their lower intelligence viewers.

  2. Actually, in reply to number 1’s comment, the media tries to modulate the debates to show us who we really are dealing with in the polls. Tha means they are trying to make it instructive for the higher intelligence viewers. The lower intelligence viewers are probably watching Fox news.
