“Texas has a lot of electrical votes” (Yogi Berra?)—The Lone Star State Dictionary (barrypopik.com)
How about a Glenn Beck-Mark Levin moderated Republican debate to that Texas winner-take-all?
This is the third post to attempt at least some relevance for Texas Republicans after Tuesday’s widespread declarations that the race is over. See:
1. I’m a Republican in Texas and I’d like to cast a meaningful vote in a presidential primary
2. BREAKING NEWS: Texas primary moves to winner-take-all?
Here’s the upcoming debate schedule, from 2012 Election Central:
There are no more Republican primary debates scheduled for 2012.
That’s great–no debate for Texas! We’re the biggest Republican state, and we don’t get anything?
On December 20, 2011, in Des Moines, Iowa, there was an ABC News debate.
On January 7, 2012, in Manchester, New Hampshire, there was another ABC News debate.
On January 8, 2012, in Concord, New Hampshire, there was an NBC News debate. That’s right–TWO debates for New Hampshire, ZERO debates for Texas!
On January 19, 2012, in Charleston, South Carolina, there was a CNN debate.
On January 23, 2012, in Tampa, Florida, There was a Tampa Bay Times-NBC News debate.
On January 26, 2012, in Jacksonville, Florida, there was a CNN debate.
On February 22, 2012, in Mesa, Arizona, there was a CNN debate.
There are a few Fox News/Huckabee events on the list, but basically, we’ve had debates controlled by CNN, ABC News and NBC News.
Glenn Beck is located in Texas. He has a popular national radio show and GBTV.
Mark Levin has a popular national radio show and is a bestselling author.
It’s often asked why MSM hacks control our debates, but not some of our leading conservative voices.
Mitt Romney has been invited, but he’s not yet accepted, an open invitation to talk with Mark Levin on his radio show. This is simply amazing to me for a supposedly inevitable Republican candidate for president.
A conservative debate is a free advertisement for conservatism. Texas deserves a debate.
If you don’t think Glenn Beck and Mark Levin could do a good job, suggest others. Please send this suggestion to Glenn Beck and Mark Levin, if you can.
All I’m saying in these three posts is that Texas Republicans deserve meaningful participation in the selection of the Republican nomination for president.
