The Debate That Never Happened, and was Sent Down the Memory Hole

From:

February 28th, 2008 – CNN Republican Debate

CNN and the Republican Party of Ohio have set a Republican debate for February 28, 2008.[99] The location has not yet been set. There are currently three candidates scheduled to participate, Governor Mike Huckabee, Senator John McCain, and Congressman Ron Paul.

Then:

February 28th, 2008 – CNN Republican Debate

CNN and the Republican Party of Ohio were scheduled to have a Republican debate for February 28, 2008.[100] However, it has been removed from the CNN debate schedule since John McCain is the presumptive nominee in the mainstream media.[101][102]

And another intermediate version, obviously from a Ron Paul supporter:

February 28th, 2008 – CNN Republican Debate

CNN and the Republican Party of Ohio were scheduled to have a Republican debate for February 28, 2008.[100] However, it has been removed from the CNN debate schedule since John McCain is the presumptive nominee in the mainstream media.[101][102] The American media, clearly showing bias, has continued to refrain from including Ron Paul in any news coverage or debates throughout the electoral process. McCain is clearly the American medias Presidential pick to run against the winner of Obama/Clinton in the Democratic caucus. The candidates clearly do not get equal coverage, and the American people are taking notice. Ron Paul continues to be the spectral candidate of the Republican party; this makes a mockery of Americas electoral process.

To: Completely scrubbed of any reference to the Feb 28th debate!

If Mitt Romney had stayed in the race (as he should have), and the originally scheduled February 28th Republican Debate had not been cancelled, you can bet that McCain would have been put on the spot about Immigration, just 4 days before the Texas primary. McCain wanted to prevent that, so he struck a back-room deal with Romney, had CNN cancel the February 28th debate, and refused a request to participate in alternate debate, setup by the Values Voter coalition, with Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul. Instead, “Juan McAmnesty” celebrated his Coup de Grâce at a barbeque with CNN and other “impartial journalists”.
