Dick Morris Urges Romney to Join Trump Debate

Thursday, 08 Dec 2011 12:20 PM

Fox News analyst and conservative author Dick Morris says Mitt Romney must reconsider his decision not to attend the Newsmax ION Television 2012 Presidential Debate, and urges all major candidates to join the debate.

“I think he is being foolish for saying no,” Morris told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly Wednesday night. “I think that Romney should go. I think he will go.”

Morris said those who skip the debate are misjudging the broad reach such a debate would have.

“Originally I guess they were -- they saw this as kind of limited TV exposure -- but Newsmax, the group that's sponsoring it, has a wide reach and I suspect by the time the debate happens, it will be on a great many TV screens throughout the country,” Morris said.

“And I think it would be terrific to have Donald Trump ask these guys what they are going to do about the economy and then critique their answers and engage in a give and take,” Morris added. “And I think Romney should jump at that opportunity. This is his issue. And frankly when you are 15 points behind you go to debates.”

Morris says that he is not concerned with minor GOP candidates not attending the debate. Specifically citing Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman, Morris said that their absence would make for "a really good debate."
