Perry, too, takes a pass on the Trump debate

posted at 5:40 pm on December 8, 2011 by Tina Korbe

Well, this puts Newt Gingrich in a pickle, doesn’t it? Will the Newsmax Donald-Trump-moderated debate now be a head-to-head contest between the increasingly formidable frontrunner and substantive straggler Rick Santorum? Gingrich does love a good one-on-one debate, as his repeated invitations to President Obama to meet him at a Lincoln-Douglas-style event indicate … but how out-of-the-cool-kids-loop does he want to be? Is he popular enough at this point to make the debate OK all by himself? Michele Bachmann could still decide to attend, but, for whatever reason, Mitt Romney and Rick Perry still seem to be the only candidates pundits postulate have a chance against Gingrich (and Perry, just barely … in fact, just because he’s second in the Hot Gas reader poll).

To be sure, it was definitely in Perry’s best interest to decline the debate — and not because it’s to be moderated by a reality TV star. When has a debate ever enhanced Perry’s chances at the presidential nomination? His press crew didn’t say he’ll avoid the stage to avoid embarrassment, though. Like Mitt Romney’s team, Perry’s press people said his calendar is just a little too crowded:

The Texas governor’s campaign said in a statement that Perry has talked to Trump and respects him. But there are two debates scheduled in the next seven days. “We have respectfully declined the invitation for the Dec. 27 debate,” campaign spokesman Ray Sullivan wrote.

Perry instead plans to focus on retail campaigning in Iowa. “Traditional retail campaigning in the days and weeks leading up to the Iowa caucus is the Perry campaign’s top priority,” Sullivan wrote. “In the coming weeks, Governor Perry will be in Iowa almost continually, meeting with real voters, doing town hall meetings and events, and talking American jobs, faith, and overhauling Washington, D.C., to Iowa voters.”

So far, Republicans Mitt Romney, Jon Huntsman, and Ron Paul have said they will not participate. Paul’s campaign said Trump’s participation will contribute to a “circus-like atmosphere,” while a Huntsman spokesman emailed Business Insider that “We look forward to watching Mitt and Newt suck-up to The Donald with a big bowl of popcorn.” Romney, like Perry, said he will focus on hitting the campaign trail. Perry has had weak performances in several past debates.

Again, though, why would Trump moderation be such a travesty? Reince Priebus says it’s his flirtation with an independent run that makes Trump problematic. OK. I really admire Mr. Priebus, so I’ll agree that’s valid. And I certainly understand the objections to Eason Jordan — but, in general, I keep coming back to this: Trump surely couldn’t be any worse than madman Jim Cramer or too-cool-for-his-britches Blitz (although, actually, the one time I met him ever-so-briefly in person, I really liked him!).

Meantime, why haven’t the candidates been merciful to decline debates before this one? As I’ve said before, every single one has served the opposition with attack ad material — and few new candidate views have come out since, say, the fifth debate (Gingrich’s immigration positions, perhaps). I might not understand the particular outrage associated with this particular debate — but I won’t mind if it’s scrapped anyway.

Perry should have shown up imo, I don’t see the big deal with Trump hosting the debate as long as there are pre-conditions that he won’t bring up any birther stuff. Trump says a lot of things people on both sides of the aisle like to hear and the candidates who show up may be able to tap into that rhetoric for their advantage.

For any of them to skip this debate is really stupid. National air time is not cheap and they are getting a chance to use it for free for two hours.
Then again for Perry it may be a good idea to miss all debates. With him having a temper and not being very good, someone could set him off and watch him bounce off the walls and kill any election chances.
For Paul another one that is bad at debates although his content is accurate, they could make him look very bad.
Hunstman who is he again? :)

Santorum and Newt both with not tons of money see this as an opportunity and most know that Newt is a great debator.

Michelle B. you are almost out of $$$$$$ you really need this free air time.

I don’t trust Trump. He has supported many Dems and …I believe voted for Obama.

One episode of “Trump Unplugged” could make anyone who sat on the stage with him look like an idiot.
When he starts jabbering about “Just tell China…Hey!…this is the way its gonna be”..or “Screw those Kuwaitis…tell them..Hey!…we’re just gonna take your oil”..and then starts spinning with anyone who shows up for the “debate”, it could be a real disaster.
I could be wrong, but anyone who shows up is just going to be a launching pad for “The Donald”.
The people who have refused to appear are smart to refuse.

Blitzer is a professional journalist. Cramer was clearly playing second banana to Maria Bartiromo, also a professional journalist.

Trump is a reality TV star, and those appearing with him will appear to be auditioning for Celebrity presidential Apprentice.

Maybe Perry could run the rest of his campaign without saying a word. They could hire someone that sounds like him to do voice-over work in his ads and personal appearances.

Dack Thrombosis on December 8, 2011 at 6:11 PM

So basically, Newt wins the Trump endorsement by default. Not only that, but Newt gets a stage to himself a few nights before the opening Caucuses.

What was going to be a grilling of the candidates turns into Donald Trump and Newt talking about the future of the country with Rick Santorum there to butt in now and again.

And this is supposed to be a loss for the Newtmeister?

He’s the best political mind in the Republican Party. For a reason.

Johnimus on December 8, 2011 at 6:12 PM

This is great for Perry. If I remember correctly, wasn’t the moderator a “birther”? Seems like the stupid birth certificate controversy might have been brought up.

I think the public is sick and tired of the same boring structured run by talking heads that hate republicans debates. Just the idea of Gingrich following Obama around to every city he visits was a twist and intriguing. Mix it up people. Given Trump may have ulterior motives but I think it will be fun and maybe revealing. I wish they all would attend. It would have been an opportunity for the R’s to loosen up and show another side of their personalities. Most importantly I think it would have been received well by the public… if all attended. In it’s abridged form I aint so sure.

That kind of honesty is pretty refreshing to a good many voters. And in any case, he has the advantage of running for the nomination against the poster child for soullessness, so it’s not that harmful.

Most of the lops who claim the ability of foresight have no idea how the debate will turn out. What I know is Romney and Perry are not in the same league as Gingrich when it comes to debate and policy.

It’s obvious that Trump will endorse Newt after the debate.

Remember when Herman Cain was in the lead, and he had a one-on-one debate with Gingrich? It put Newt right in the public eye, and then when we all jumped off the Cain Train right before it came off the tracks, we got Newtmentum.

So then, two questions:

1. Is there enough time for everybody to jump off the Newter Scooter and onto the….Santorum….I got nothing.

2. What will libs take to UrbanDictionary to define “Santorumentum” as?

As an independent I think this is a good move on the part of those who declined. I would think that too those who arent politically inclined Donald Trump is just a reality tv person and it does make it seem like a joke/game and I dont think that he is worthy of hosting a debate for the President of the United States of America. I mean whats next? Should “The Situation” host a debate with “Sookie” Co-hosting? If a politician wants to go on SNL or a talk show like the view or a late night show then that makes sense. You know going in what to expect, but to have a reality personality host a supposedly serious debate is foolish.

Just my two cents.

Politricks on December 8, 2011 at 7:37 PM

Good decision by Perry. Hope it will be cancelled now; anyone who is smart will be covering ground in Iowa between now and the primary, shaking hands and doing the retail politicking. Perry is very good at that and he has absolutely nothing to gain by participating- I don’t think any of them do. This is a crucial time in all of their campaigns.

The more I reflect on Gingrich’s record and Mitt’s record – the more I am giving a second look at Perry. He has said some dumb things. We have all said some dumb things – including Mitt (Romneycare)and Newt (Was for the individual mandate before he was against it).

Reality is that any one of the people up there for the GOP is far better than the present occupant of the White House. I think we all need to keep that perspective in focus.

This is the first debate Perry’s has skipped. For all the flack he caught just thinking about skipping others — which he did NOT — it was MITT and Huntsman who have skipped. Mitt skipped the IA Thanksgiving Forum and Huntsman skipped the debate in NV AND Huck’s forum. You lie.

-Aslan’s Girl

Aslans Girl on December 9, 2011 at 4:07 AM

The reason candidates are skipping is twofold: Trump made it a reality show JOKE when he said that immediately afterward he would endorse someone! He made it like his stupid “Apprentice” show; the s second reason is that Trump has a conflict of interest because he’s still thinking of running third party.

This was a JOKE to our Republic and our Constitution. It undermined the entire serious process by turning it into a reality show.

I’m very proud of those who decided to skip. And embarrassed by the two who jumped at the chance.
