- Other candidates were trying to sidestep the Nevada debate because they claimed that the sponsoring television network, Fox News Channel, was conservatively biased.
“If you want to be the President of the United States, you can’t be afraid to deal with people with whom you disagree politically,” Kucinich said. “No one is further removed from Fox’s political philosophy than I am, but fear should not dictate decisions that affect hundreds of millions of Americans and billions of others around the world who are starving for real leadership.”
Kucinich said “the public deserves honest, open, and fair public debate, and the media have a responsibility to demand that candidates come forward now, before the next war vote in Congress, to explain themselves.”
But all of that's that's beside the point. We all know what this was about, and we know Dennis knows it too. But instead of joining with the party to use the occasion to drive home the teachable moment, Kucinich undermines the hard work of progressives on the issue and amplifies the talking points of the Fox crowd.
And all this is Dennis serving the interests of Dennis, his favorite constituent. Despite all his counterproductive self-aggrandizement, his constituents continue to send him back to Congress. What the fuck don't they understand about what this guy is really about?
