Betty McCollum Chickens Out on Debate With Teresa Collet

The most anticipated debate since Ross Perot v. Bush v. Clinton was to take place in MNCD4. Yep, who knew! The debate was to be between current incumbent, and intellectual flyweight Betty McCollum vs. Republican challenger Teresa Collett; an attorney and law professor at UST.  But, yesterday Betty chickened out, and cancelled the debate; once again screwing MNCD 4, by denying us a chance to hear her unintelligible ramblings.

This debate was to be a televised debate, which would've shown Betty's minimal intellectual capacity. I'm guessing the DFL leadership (DFL has held this seat for 50 years) recognized Betty's not a mental giant, and that she would be in over her head in a debate with Paris Hilton; so they pulled the plug on the debate. They used the reasoning that KSTP owner gave $2k to Teresa. "We don't do debates where the sponsoring organization has made political contributions to our opponents," Blauvelt said. "We've had the principle for three or four cycles now." 

Uhm, so what!  It is $2k.  Big deal...Don't worry Betty...we are out in force on Twitter, FB and blogs spreading the word of your incompetence.  Below is a posting from another blog, Let Freedom Ring, about Betty pulling out of the debate with Teresa...

Like many Democrats, Rep. Betty McCollum is afraid to face her GOP opponent. I can't blame Rep. McCollum for not wanting to debate Teresa Collett, especially on TV. That isn't a matchup I'd look forward to if I was Rep. McCollum's campaign manager. Still, it's telling that Rep. McCollum has refused to debate Teresa Collett on TV:
Teresa Collett, Republican candidate for Congress in Minnesota’s 4th district today called upon DFL incumbent Congresswoman Betty McCollum to explain why she is denying the voters the chance to see the differences between the candidates on the November ballot. Today, McCollum rejected an invitation to take part in the KSTP-Channel 5 debate to be taped on Sept. 19th. Despite Congress not being in session that day, no reason was given for the snub.
“What does Betty McCollum have to hide from the voters besides her record”, asked Teresa Collett.
America’s prosperity has been derailed by the politicians in Washington and Betty McCollum and Nancy Pelosi are part of the problem. Betty McCollum has been in office for nine and a half years and unemployment is nine and a half percent. Throughout the 4th Congressional district in Minnesota unemployment has doubled or tripled since Betty took office.
“McCollum is a typical politician who does not want to debate on television where voters may be informed of her record and the voters deserve more from her than that,” stated Collett.
Teresa Collett is a law professor at the University of St. Thomas, a wife and mother of three, an author, lecturer and advocate.
Rep. McCollum has voted for the trifecta, aka the stimulus, Pelosicare and Cap and Trade. Nobody in their right mind thinks that the stimulus has worked. Rep. McCollum probably isn't participating in this debate because she doesn't want to have to defend those votes. Even in typically Democratic districts, voters saw the Democrats' radicalism.
Prior to this year, Rep. McCollum could coast, never thinking twice about voting for radical things like Cap and Tax or Pelosicare. This year, she can't be certain that she'll get away with those votes. Standing alongside a competent, intelligent conservative lady like Teresa Collett isn't the image that McCollum wants splashed across a TV screen.
I've heard Collett on the radio a number of times. She's an impressive candidate, easily McCollum's equal, if not better. In this crazy year, Teresa Collett certainly is capable of defeating Rep. McCollum. The people that were identified early as vulnerable now lost for the D's and the next group well on their way to losing, the NRCC should be well on their way of targeting the group that was initially classified as leans Democrat.
McCollum refusing to debate on statewide TV is a sign of weakness. More importantly, it's proof that she's worried. If I was managing the Collett campaign, I'd start running ads similar to the old Wellstone Where's Rudy ads. If McCollum won't debate on TV, then I'd highlight that by ridiculing McCollum.
Comments welcome at LFR.
Keep up the work constituents of MNCD4; every bit helps.  From letters to the editor, tweets, facebook, blogs, Collett yard signs, telling your neighbors etc...spread the word on what Betty hasn't done for MNCD4, and if you are new to this blog, read how Betty denies God in Congress, supports Hamas and is anti-Israel.  Or just ask yourself, with the recent revelation of voter fraud in St. Paul, why would Betty McCollum deny voter fraud is a problem, and what has Betty done for MNCD4?
