9 points, you know that does not mean much.  Why not debate?  He is a chicken shit, just like the derailers here.


For Hillary, leading the race in Oct 2016 really didn't mean much at all, did it? I can't tell you how much happiness I derive from her failure.

Why would Cruz need to debate; it's no mystery where he stands on the issues. Why give Beto extra attention and exposure when he's losing?

It's a gambit.  Attend the debate, and risk letting your opponent upstage you, or avoid the debate, and risk looking like you are afraid your opponent will upstage you.

Clearly, Cruz is picking the latter.

Looks like Ted Cruz would rather take the heat for avoiding a public debate with his opponent than take the heat for appearing.  Doesn't look good for Lyin' Ted.

Doesn't it kind of remind you of when obama would avoid going on Fox news because he was afraid he would not be given favorable cover? Now, that's real cowardice!

Welcome back and shame on whoever banned you considering how much of a blind eye gets turned on our rightwing trolls. It seems the rules don't really apply unless you're left of the dial.

Yeah, and all those times Trump avoided doing actual press conferences, preferring to have a whirring helicopter to run off to in case the questions got tricky?  Or those times Kavanaugh took his case to the public by appearing only on fox or WSJ?

No, I did not say that he never was on FOX, but that he avoided Fox.

They have debated. And as long as you're calling people chickensh*t, why not not call out Beto for skipping out on the 2nd debate for a Facebook live event?

Except they've already had one debate (you can watch it here). And have another one on the schedule for October 16. There was third one, but Beto opted for Facebook live event instead, and I'm not sure they have rescheduled it.

Excellent point, Demos! I had forgotten that Beto had gone missing from the second debate.  You just exposed the hypocrisy of a liberal.

Thanks for proving my point.  BTW, there is no angry left wing mob.  More talking points from the right wing talking points book.  Funny how you all echo all of the FOX/Trump B.S.  You guys are so blindly loyal.
