Michelle Nunn calls for five debates against David Perdue in Senate contest 

By Greg Bluestein

Republican David Perdue and Democrat Michelle Nunn are vying for Georgia's open U.S. Senate seat.

Republican David Perdue and Democrat Michelle Nunn are vying for Georgia’s open U.S. Senate seat.

Democrat Michelle Nunn is calling for five debates against GOP nominee David Perdue to be held across the state in the runup to the general election.

Perdue went through a gauntlet of debates and forums almost every week in the months before the GOP’s May 20 primary, but he only had one face-to-face debate with his runoff challenger, Rep. Jack Kingston, ahead of last week’s vote.

Cynics would say this is Nunn’s attempt to shift the conversation away from the 144-page series of memos  leaked from her Senate campaign. But we’ll leave that to the cynics.

Perdue spokesman Derrick Dickey said the Republican participated in a dozen debates while Nunn only joined one.

“For her to now talk about the importance of debates shows the complete disingenuousness of her campaign,” he said.

We are told that Perdue will likely participate in at least four debates or forums with Nunn, including the Atlanta Press Club debate days before the vote.

Here’s what Nunn said:

“Debates are going to be an important part of this race. I think five debates hosted by non-partisan organizations – spread across the state – will offer a good chance to compare the background and record my opponent and I offer in this race, as well as how we would represent Georgia in the Senate. I welcome the chance to engage in these dialogues in front of Georgia voters and hope my opponent will join me in this important process.”

Mrs. Nunn knows that Mr. Perdue will not debate that many times because, quite frankly Sam's daughter, He's winning! When a winner is winning, there's NO NEED to hold a debate. That's the oldest rule in the playbook. Why waste time, energy, money and your breath when you are winning. 


Now, that those facts are rightfully laid out here on this lefty blog, the fact is states like Georgia need a good Christian businessman who will clean up the mess Washington has inflicted upon it from years of abuse and tyranny. Mr. Perdue WILL clean up Hussein Obama's mess by saying NO to unfunded mandates including the failed ObamaCare program; NO to more hard-earned dollar$ going to the Department of Miseducation; NO to THE job-killing EPA; NO to same-sex marriage; NO to higher taxe$ and others burdens placed upon We The People (Tea Party Republicans/those with common sense),  NO to secular progressives who kicked God out of schools and the courthouses; NO to military spending cut$. 


Amen,

Bill

does she have any children? If no, why not? Even Hillary had one to try to deflect the lesbian rumors, not that it worked for her. And Mary Martin is a weak debater

Mary Martin can run on her character, having overcome the obstacles of living every day as a woman with that face. Can she show her birth certificate to see if she is a woman born woman?

I've got $20 that she either backtracks her statement or runs away like she did with the Channel 2 Action News reporters.


All Deal has to do is tie her to Obama and she's toast.

Poor left wingers.

Clinging fiercely to the past only strangles the future. That's your fortune cookie for the election.

Boy, 5 debates ? are her handlers and speech writers going to be busy trying to come up with something for her to say, maybe they will call her Grandmother who gave Michelle all her knowledge or call Harry Reid for some pointers.

Nunn should win this race easily, even without debates. Everybody knows Perdue isn't running to help Georgians, he's just in it to make more money for himself and his wealthy friends. Go Fish, Georgia.

@NWGAL The Past? You mean clinging to the principles that made this nation the greatest country the world has ever seen?

Yes, Perdue will leave Georgians the way he left the workers of Pillotex -- with pink slips and unemployed while he retreats behind the gate of his gated community to count his millions. He doesn't care about anything but making money for himself.

@GA Peach  Do you feel that way about Kerry, Clinton, Rockefeller, etc.? That are plenty of rich elected democrats but only the republican rich are evil. Sad.

@td1234  We'll be sure to tell Jason about the crush you have on him.  Always figured you to be in the closet, the way you go on about newt.

@honested "misogyny" now because Conservative oppose a progressive woman running for the Senate and racist because conservatives oppose a progressive black President. 


And you actually believe conservatives should listen to and act on what progressives want?

@AuntieChrist @td1234 Well if I had to wake up next to Mary-Michelle-Martin-Nunn each morning then Carter would look a whole lot better. At least Carter is feminine looking and does not look like a beast.

@td1234 @honested 

I'm sure conserrrrrrrrrvatives will continue to cling to their failed policies and attempt to enforce them on everyone else.

Do you have any idea why that is a recipe for disaster?

@td1234 @honested 

Then answer the first part, what poor showing?

We know the conserrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrvatives won't vote for anyone not interested in preserving the confederacy.

Big whoop.

What seems to escape the cons is that there numbers shrink every day (primarily due to attrition) and younger people seem to be a bit more enlightened, less likely to grow old as morons.

@td1234, your earlier comment about Nunn isn't misogyny?

What on earth did you mean by, " Carter is not a woman? Carter is a lot prettier than Mary-Michelle-Martin-Nunn"  Please explain that statement, tell us what it has to do with her candidacy for the US Senate.  At least you didn't call her a sl ut, as you are known to do.

Not likely.

I think Ms. Nunn is happily married and I don't believe she has ever been available by mail order.

@td1234 @AuntieChrist  So you're saying definitely that you would rather sleep with a man, particularly Jason.  Newt probably won't mind, he has calista.

Yep, closet.

@AuntieChrist @td1234 Nope, I have a drop dead gorgeous wife so I do not have to wake up looking at the beast every morning. Most people can tell her husband did not marry her for her looks. 


I am saying Carter is more feminine looking sissy than the beast.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

@td1234 , what a cop out, as usual.  I guess Mitch McConnell is unqualified to be a US Senator then right?  Lets judge him by his looks. 

Btw, congratulations on coming out of the closet, it took a lot of courage.  I guess you will be voting for Carter since he's a lot cuter than Deal.  You are going to judge Deal by his looks too I take it, seeing as how you're not a misogynist and all.

@td1234   You should probably be corresponding with marcus bachmann and/or larry craig then instead of me.  They can give you pointers on how to maintain a front of heterosexuality, while harboring thoughts of sleeping with men.  As Kamchack said, nothing wrong with wanting to sleep with Jason Carter, at least in the view of us liberals. You may want to keep it to yourself though around your tp buddies.

@AuntieChrist I will not attempt to deprive you and Kamspam of your secret deviant behavior wet dreams. 

AuntieChrist
AuntieChrist

@td1234 @AuntieChrist  So, you're a deviant then, since you want to wake up next to Jason Carter. 

As for 'what is morally correct,' that is a subjective standard, and in violation of libertarian/conservative doctrine, isn't it?  You want to impose your arbitrary moral standards on the poulation. I believe some people would view that not as conservatism, but talibanism.

td1234
td1234

@AuntieChrist No I do not have the same deviant (progressive) thought process as you do. You and Kamspam's corrupted minds went to a behavior that, according to the CDC, 2.3% of the American population participates in and my reference was towards looks.


I have no thought process to ever even consider such depravity that yourself and Kamspam considers normal and morally correct behavior.

AuntieChrist
AuntieChrist

@td1234  I don't consider talibanism to be morally correct behavior, it is a sign of a morally corrupt mind.  I have no thought process that deems the outward appearance of a person as their defining attribute, be they 'ugly' or 'pretty,' 'sissified' or 'manly.'  Unfortunately very, very small people like yourself, with very, very small minds are all over these pages demonstrating your 'corrupted minds, with your comments on appearance.  

But since you cannot win simply on the issues and ideas, it is what we can expect from you taliban tp's.

td1234

@AuntieChrist @td1234 Win on the issues? LOL. Can you tell us what is Nunn or Carter's position is on any of the following issues?


Taxes

Spending

Defense

Education

Obamacare

Cutting government regulation

Cutting government spending

Personal resposibility

Illegal immogration


Deal and Perdue is pretty clear on all of the above issues.

@td1234 @AuntieChrist 

Just think about your questions.

Would any sentient person seeking election to correct the errors of the previous decade in this state cleave to the positions you hold on any of those issues?

In this race, YOUR vote won't count!
