North Carolina Democratic Debate Canceled- Obama Backs Out.

The last Democratic debate held in PA., had Barack Obama supporters besides themselves because Obama was asked some difficult questions and didn't handle them well.

Is it any surprise that his supporters have now taken to chanting "NO MORE DEBATES"?

The North Carolina Democratic Party has just issued a statement announcing that the planned debate to be held there has been canceled.

We regret to inform you that the proposed Democratic Presidential Debate scheduled for April 27 has been cancelled due to time constraints and logistical issues associated with such a large, national event.

You have shown tremendous passion and interest in being a part of history as Democrats are poised this year to elect the first female or African-American President. However, there were also growing concerns about what another debate would do to party unity.

We hope your interest in the North Carolina Democratic Party will not end with the cancellation of the debate.

We will keep your e-mail addresses for a random drawing to attend a special event in the fall featuring the nominee.

Senators Clinton and Obama have offered additional opportunities to be seen and heard across the state in the coming weeks and months.

Both candidates have committed to attending our Jefferson-Jackson Dinner on Friday, May 2 in Raleigh.

According to Democratic chairman Jerry Meek, last week, this debate could have brought the party $300,000 through individual sponsorships of pre- and post-debate receptions.

They claim it was logistics but after the pounding Obama took at the last debate, no one is really surprised that he backed out of this one.

Clinton's N.C. director Ace Smith said in a statement, "It is unfortunate that Senator Obama has chosen to brush off the people of North Carolina by flatly refusing to debate. But we are willing to move forward with another time and location for the debate so that he has no excuse for not participating."

Team Clinton must be disappointed since the media has finally started asking Obama the hard questions, and now he doesn't want to deal with them or questions.

Especially when he is eating his waffles!!!!

SCRANTON, Pa. - As Sen. Hillary Clinton was preparing to campaign here today, Sen. Barack Obama was meeting with voters at a diner and apparently pretty hungry.

"Why can't I just eat my waffle?" he said, when asked a foreign policy question by a reporter at the Glider Diner.

Little grumpy?
