Giuliani and Romney are balking at the talking snowmen by saying that scheduling conflicts and the format were issues.
So CNN is now saying, “Okay, what time works for you?”
The GOP version of the CNN/YouTube debate is still scheduled for Sept. 17, but may be moved to a later date.
CNN spokeswoman Mara Gassman says CNN’s Washington bureau chief and debate executive producer David Bohrman is talking with the Republican presidential campaigns about scheduling issues.
Gassman could not say more beyond issuing a statement from Bohrman: “We’re working with the campaigns to resolve any scheduling issues.”
Some news Web sites stated this weekend that the debate is being moved to a later date, and Ron Paul’s blog says it’s being moved to December.
December? You’re kidding me, right?
Come on guys…just do it already. Even the Florida GOPers are saying you guys should do it…
“This debate is an unprecedented opportunity for people in Florida and across the nation to ask the Republican presidential candidates where they stand on the issues,” state party chairman Jim Greer said Friday. “It is also evidence of Florida’s growing and prominent role in the 2008 presidential election cycle, and we are excited to partner with the campaigns, CNN, and YouTube to bring the Republican presidential candidates to viewers across America.”
Mitt…Rudy…grow a pair.
