It is at minimum 25 million to ZERO and it could be as high as 45 million to ZERO.
That is the number of people who have watched a Republican Presidential debate to the number of people who have watched a Democrat Presidential debate. It’s not like the Democrats are without a primary process. There’s Martin O’Malley, Bernie Sanders, Jim Webb, and some old lady who suffered a brain injury. Perhaps the DNC is just trying to let the elderly heal before subjecting her to a debate.
The Democrats can mock and ridicule the process of the Republican debate all they want. The can run op-eds and editorials about how the candidates are terrible. But ultimately the GOP is getting out there and not protecting one old lady from all the other candidates in the field.
What exactly is Hillary Clinton scared of? What is Debbie Wasserman Schultz scared of? They must be scared of something. Perhaps it is showing America that the Democrat candidates are crazier and more shrill than the GOP. Perhaps they don’t want just a race of old white people forcing them to compete with the MSNBC slate of anchors for who’s whiter.
Either way, at minimum 25 million Americans have seen Republicans debate issues, disagree, and have a Presidential primary process. The Democrats are still in hiding. The sad thing is, it has more to do with protecting one old lady too scared to answer tough questions than actually having a primary debate process.
