“Gov. Romney will not be participating in this week’s South Carolina debate because it’s still early, the field is too unsettled and he’s not yet an announced candidate," top Romney aide Matt Rhoades said in a statement Monday. "Fox News and the South Carolina Republican Party have both been notified of this decision."
The full story is HERE.

It looks as if the only candidates attending are Tim Pawlenty, Ron Paul, Buddy Roemer, and Hermain Cain.

File this Fox debate under the category, the BIG YAWN or SOMETHING BETTER TO DO!

Off Topic -

Bosman - I just got a new laptop and when Ilog onto Right Speak I don't see all the side features (Chat Box, Facebook, etc) but when I click on a post to read the comments, they show up on that page. Is this something new to the site or do I have to set something on my end?

Dear Fox:

Go jump off a cliff.

I'm glad and I didn't think he would. No debates until the field if finished, IMO.

SC is not exactly friendly territory, anyway. There's probably more anti-Mormon dirty tricks to come. Dirty politics seems to be the norm in SC, and the GOP leadership doesn't care.

Hi Doug,

I have the same problem with Internet Explorer version 9. I think it's probably a bug.

So I now use either Firefox or Google Chrome and everything shows.

Pawlenty will have a hard time looking presidential with that group.

Why should Romney go to this?
What does he have to gain?

If you had a choice of being a target 19 times instead of 20, what would you do?

But Mitt is tied near the top with Huckabee their now. Where SC is an early state and winable, I was hoping he would show.
