GOP – Not Sure about this YouTube Thingy

Julia Dahl at Salon is reporting that as popular as the Democratic YouTube debate was among the young, Republican Presidential candidates are, well, not so sure:

The Washington Post reports this morning that so far, only Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, have agreed to appear at the next CNN/YouTube debate scheduled for Sept. 17 in St. Petersburg, Fla. Mitt Romney told the Manchester Union Leader on Wednesday, “I think the presidency ought to be held at a higher level than having to answer questions from a snowman.”

I’d be happy if Republicans acknowledged that the President should answer questions from anyone, but that’s another issue.

I know the youth vote is trending seriously Democratic these days, but do the Republicans really want to write it off?

That was, by the way, a rhetorical question.
