— CNN canceled its March 1 Republican presidential debate on Thursday after three of four candidates declined to participate, citing busy campaign schedules leading to Super Tuesday on March 6.

"Mitt Romney and Ron Paul told the Georgia Republican Party, Ohio Republican Party, and CNN Thursday that they will not participate in the March 1 Republican presidential primary debate," CNN said in a statement. "Without full participation of all four candidates, CNN will not move forward with the Super Tuesday debate."

Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum also said he would not participate, leaving only former House Speaker Newt Gingrich committed to attending.

The Dumbocrats didn't win Georgia last time and I see no reason for them to win this time. People will vote who they want to regardless of whether they have a debate or not.

Since Georgia is in the top tier of states hardest hit by THE HILL'S decisions/programs/bailouts/housing market, they dare NOT come to Georgia and TRY their smiley-faced, glad-hand and spin-meistering...Georgians ARE tired of ALL things on THE HILL. The Hill has We The People's Gold Card and they are partying, vacationing, eating, driving, and EVER SPENDING SPENDING SPENDING...with impunity.
