Dennis Kucinich Is A Weenie

AUSTIN, Texas, March 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The cancellation in the past two days of two planned nationally televised debates because of candidates' "scheduling conflicts" and unwillingness to participate smacks of "manipulation by some candidates who would rather run and hide than defend their records and their positions on the war," Ohio Congressman and Democratic Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich said today while campaigning in Texas.

Widely publicized Presidential debates in New Hampshire in April and in Nevada in August were cancelled after some candidates either backed out after agreeing to participate or declined invitations to attend.

"Whatever their excuses, some candidates are clearly trying to avoid
any head-to-head public debate where they will have to answer tough questions -- questions about their votes in favor of the Iraq war, their votes in favor of trade policies that have wiped out millions of American jobs, their votes in favor of abridging Constitutional rights by approving the Patriot Act, and their collaboration with insurance companies and pharmaceutical corporations to deny Americans adequate health care protection."

Kucinich said, "it's an insult to the voters, and the height of
cynicism, for candidates to refuse to take the public stage and subject themselves to public scrutiny."

They were terrified of you Dennis. They thought that the coast was clear for the Fox News debate until they heard Kucinich would be there. They ran in terror because they knew the campaign would be over if Kucinich got a chance to speak truth to power.

Then we stop taking the pharmaceuticals Kucinich apparently enjoys, and wake up to reality. How dare you Dennis? Those of us on the left worked very hard to get the right wing disinformation channel Faux News disinvited from hosting a debate. You now decide it's a good opportunity to puff and strut, and hope that Fox and right wing radio cover your pissy little PR release here to give you some attention.

Naderesque might be a suitable adjective. Go draw up plans for the Department of Peace, and don't call us, we'll call you.

Update:Shocking news. Michelle Malkin already has an attaboy Dennis post up. This means Drudge will have one too. Yup, just checked and he does. By tomorrow morning Rush, Hannity, Fox will cover it. Then the MSM will "ask the question" about the democrats being afraid to debate. Way to go Kucinich.
