Bondi to co-host GOP presidential debate

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi will co-host the GOP presidential debate on Fox News this weekend, according to a press release distributed by the Republican Party of Florida this morning.

Bondi, a Fox fave who often appeared on the news channel as a legal analyst before her election in January and a frequent guest star since, will join fellow Republican attorneys general Ken Kuccinelli of Virginia and E. Scott Pruitt of Oklahoma on former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s show Saturday night at 8 p.m.

Bondi is leading the charge in the multi-state federal health care lawsuit, launched by her predecessor Bill McCollum, now before the U.S. Supreme Court. Undoing the health care law is among the GOP presidential wannabes’ top campaign pledges.

“This forum is an excellent opportunity to engage each of the candidates in a candid conversation about issues that are important to voters in our state and across the nation,” Bondi said in the press release. “This will be a historic election, and I am excited to play a part in helping voters gain a better understanding of candidates’ beliefs on fundamental issues such as constitutionalism and the role of government.”

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum have all agreed to participate in the forum, according to the release.

    Lack of employment is making it difficult for Americans to pay their bills, especially credit cards. Credit card companies don’t care if you’re unemployed. If you’re late even by a day or two they will raise your interest rate to as high as 29% or even 32%. At those rates, Americans will be indebted until they die leaving the debt for their families. What will the new President do about capping the interest rate that unsecured creditors like credit card companies charge? Only by doing this can Americans keep from becoming indentured slaves to credit card companies.

    I’d love to hear how Newt thinks he’s going to get past the Democratic attack machine when he had to leave Congress in an ethics scandal where he was fined $330,000 for violating federal tax law and giving the House Ethics Committee “false information” — my grandma would’ve said he LIED TO CONGRESS, not unlike the Martha Stewart.

    Have people forgotten this already?

    Hopefully this will give Mitt a chance to expose Newt for the fraud that he really is.
