It's all good. Obama has divided the Country to the point where there is nothing to debate. If a voter respects America and values America they will Vote R if for whatever reason they don't they will Vote D.
Debates won't change any minds.

I am sure that the Republicans will change their minds about this because they have no backbone, no testicles and principles. They will nominate another moderate with a squishy message and so they will lose to Hillary. She will continue to destroy everything that used to be good about America.
It is sad to see a once great great country in such decline.

Clinton is a household name, IF she runs, she'll get a large "name recognition" portion of the vote.
by NOT having debates on channels such as NBC and CNN, the RNC has only prevented their candidates from being household names.
.
doesn't really matter, the election is still 3 years away.
and by that time the lies about the ACA will have been realized by the GOP base, they'll become disgusted with their party, and not vote at all.

There is some kind of mental disconnect with you right-wing idiots… you make false claims of Obama dividing the country and then you go on to make a very divisive comment. So when people don’t vote for your side it is because there is a problem with their values… and not with the flawed ideology of the right. I guess whatever helps you deal with us continually kicking your teeth in. LOSER TALK, LOL!

You might want to tell those republicant candidates in the last round of loser debates when one of the candidates had the best ooooooooops moment in any debate along with Romney's binder of women comment.

Wonder if Preeeeebuss tells his children not to play in a soccer game in case the referee is a democrat. He needs to grow up and look at how silly and ignorant he is sounding.

The Debates are meaningless if the majority prefer mediocre when they have a shot at excellant. Debates won't add anything if American's don't want an effective, efficient, even handed President.

After last November it seems clear that the majority prefer to be nothing more than tax slaves bending under the oppressive Yoke of Big Brother/Big Government.

You can't blame Republicans for this one.
The complete lack of journalistic integrity which framed the debates "moderated" by CNN and NBC last year destroyed the value of the Debates.
CNN and NBC failed so miserably that no thinking person could trust them.

Today's Republican Party is a group of poltroons unfit to lead. Instead of standing for anything they kowtow to the liberal media so as not to offend anyone - a sure recipe for more electoral defeats á la moderate McCain and moderate Romney. Romney financially destroyed his primary opposition (real conservatives) one by one only to have Obama do the same to him via negative advertising. This the Republican 'establishment' cannot comprehend.

To win the Republican Party must energize its conservative base. Moderates stand for nothing but reckless accommodation to all. That has and will equal defeat.

I disagree. I think the Republicans will nominate an extremist nut, and then lose to Hillary.
