Presidential Debate Cancelled

by Lynn Hulsey | Dayton Daily News  |  published on July 19, 2016


FAIRBORN — Wright State President David Hopkins announced Tuesday the university has withdrawn from hosting the first presidential debate in September.

  • WSU cited rising costs and security costs
  • Costs rose from $3.5 million to over $8 million
  • University informed Commission on Presidential Debates at noon
  • WSU in an internal remediation to overcome budget deficit

UPDATE @ 2:28 p.m.
“It’s a shame that security concerns have gotten so expensive,” said Ohio Senator Keith Faber (R-Celina). “And made it so difficult for a public university to host something like that requiring new construction.”

Faber said he understands the university’s decision.

    Hillary is the Queen of lies. Donald is the Ace of solutions and REAL hope and change. Everyone knows an Ace TRUMPS a Queen every time!

    Why waste that kinda money on a one-time thing like this? Hold the thing at a location that already has the facilities in place already. The Secret Service detail and the FBI are already on payroll for close in protection inside the venue, so why can’t military MPs guard the exterior and surrounding area since their payroll is already covered? Our government needs to find ways to pay for things like it’s coming from their own wallets instead of the bottomless well of taxpayer funds. $8million would cover a hell of a lot of tuition or lower costs for existing students.

    • AKLady

      The Posse Comitatus Act prohibits the use of federal military personnel to “execute the laws”.

      • titanium71

        My point is, why spend stupid money when there are resources already in place when needed. Blowing money is easy when it isn’t earned and coming out of their own pocket. There’s plenty of other armed entities of our government that can be utilized to support a debate.

          A governor can call out the National Guard. That state milita is the one authorized by the Constitution.

    Sadly security, because of the ‘Black Lies Matter’ paid rioters, is the number #1 issue.

    Obama will not declare Black Lies Matter and the muslim brotherhood terrorist groups.

    Obama recently slammed another White House petition, to:

    Formally recognize Black Lives Matter as a terrorist organization. Created by Y.S. on July 06, 2016

    petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/formally-recognize-black-lives-matter-terrorist-organization

    141,428 signed it in less than 9 days before Obama killed it. It was on the way to get a million or more!

    But so did an older petition to declare the muslim brotherhood a terrorist group. Read his lame replies on each one.

    petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/declare-muslim-brotherhood-organization-terrorist-group

    Obama refused to approve that petition as well. Why? you may ask.

    ☭Traitors have an agenda that transcends patriotism, the rule of law and national security.

    No college should set themselves up for state sanctioned anarchy and a racist “Purge” on their campus.

    Good little liberals. They finally figured out that Hillary is a dud.

  • justinwachin

    It is irresponsible for a university to spend even a million dollars to host a presidential debate. Too many students are having to struggle to pay for their education. They don’t need to be stuck paying for a 90 minute TV show.

  • rowleya

    Smart move
    It would have been a Carnival Freak show
    Not a debate

  • bobnstuff

    It’s good to see that WSU decided not to waste money on a debate instead of using it to educate their students. They don’t need the problems having Trump and Clinton in town can bring. It’s not a liberal thing if anything it’s makes good good business sense. There will be a debate, just not there. I don’t think that Clinton would miss the chance to engage in a battle of wits with Trump.

    • BlessedtoServe

      We shall see when we see the next debat cancelled then we will know…Hillary, she can’t argue herself out of her own lies…

      • bobnstuff

        What I believe will happen is Trump will spend his time telling us how great he is and Hillary will explain what she will do for the country with facts. Trump is very weak when you try to get real facts from him. Go look at Hillary’s web page and where she stands on issues.
        https://www.hillaryclinton.com/issues/
        Then go see what Trump is giving you.

        • BlessedtoServe

          been there done that, do you really think I would be so stupid to not do my homework..especially when there is so much information to research……your candidate is a liar….she lied and 4 people died…she takes money from foreign countries…she has no loyalty to USA, but sell us out for the highest dollar to cater to those who wishes to buy her…she is a political hoe…get that…she has sold your freedom to the highest bidder… good for you…but not for our country…she will fail she will not be President.. Trump is for country sovereignty and love of our country…people see this….you don’t. you are a liberal….no morals ….no ethics…and you and her can share a cell together…

          • bobnstuff

            Trump has no problem with taking money from foreign countries, it’s just other people doing it that he has problems with.
            http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/12/07/donald-trump-loves-muslims-if-they-re-rich.html
            You really need to look into his history. http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/markets/trump-and-his-debts-a-narrow-escape/ar-AAgjmAC?li=BBnb7Kv&ocid=HPCDHP
            You think Trump is moral, cheating on his wives is very moral, You think he has ethics, burning your business partners is very ethical. Read is books, he tells you that being loose with facts is good for business, in other words it’s OK to lie. This is your candidate. I was a Kasich supporter.

          • BlessedtoServe

            you lost…get over it….kasich took soros money NWO you loser…

          • bobnstuff

            Who do you think would be more likely to support the NWO, a guy from Ohio or an international businessman. Ever wonder why a man who does nothing without thinking of the profit would take a job paying just $250,000 year and spend millions getting it.

            Even when he went bankrupt he walk away with an extra million of other peoples money each time. He is just like that used car salesman who is going to give you a deal because he likes you.

          • BlessedtoServe

            BTW it is now 450,000 Now this can be said the same for your Ohio inside Kasich, soros funded cuz he is bought just like Killary….no different, ask the same question of anyone of the politicians…why would Killery do the same….when they make more money blackmailing countries or selling out for special favors through government…NWO…..Trump is not NWO, else wise if so, the whole of the USA politicians would not be against him. the reason they are is the special interest….like he said it’s all rigged, now the rigg is up… go vote your kasich….he will not be president, Trump will be and then you can post all your whinning on a daily basis..,too bad…for you, fact: your man lost, fact: he will not be President, fact Trump will be President, not you nor anyone will change that. Those are all facts. See you Nov 8, start practicing President Trump.

    We can assume that she doesn’t want her dirty laundry laid out for all to see. Hillary it doesn’t matter as we have already seen a lot of your dirty laundry. We know you are a crook, liar, murderess as well as many other things also. You don’t have to be convicted of any of it, we already know. Save yourself some money and pull out now before you are embarrassed.

  • BlessedtoServe

    too funny Hillary using a woman card …..changing her mind…..budget my a….when did the word budget come into the liberals pc world…

    • AKLady

      No “woman card” involved. Trump backed out because he could not debate intellegently, even if his life depended upon his doing so.

      • BlessedtoServe

        Actually, Trump offered to pay for the security,…you idiot…she backed out…it’s a liberal college…maybe they just don’t have enough to pay Hillary her 250,000 for 20 minutes of her time…

          • Mike

            AKLady is a well known liberal hack. Pay her no mind. Hil-liar-y can’t confront Mr. Trump in a one-on-one debate. The FBI is on her tail (again) and the hounds are closing in! Mr. Trump wasn’t my first choice but that’s what the process has gotten us so he gets my vote. I just can’t figure out why ANYONE would vote for Mrs. Clinton? All the absolute scandals……

          • Nina

            Not to mention all the other scandals the Clintons have had in their corrupt lives!! AKLady apparently doesn’t care about this country, more important to vote party line!

          • AKLady

            Scandals?

            Let me know when the Democrata catch up with the Republicans.
            Let’s see, Herman Cain, Chris Nyers, Newt Gingrich, John Boehner, Phillop Hinkle, CHristopher Lee, Mike Duvall, Mark Sanford, John Ensign, Vitto Fossella, Larry Craig, David Vitter, Charles Boutin, Bob Allen, Mark Foley … many, many more — all caught with their pants down, ot at least unzipped in activities with the wrong people.

            I could name over 50. Saint Reagan is on the list — something about a Playboy model named Paula …

          • AKLady

            The IRAN CONTRA Affair.

            Reagan provided weapons to Iran. Weapons that have been used to kill Americans in Iraw and Afghanistan.

            Oliver North destroyed and hid pertinent documents between November 21 and November 25, 1986. But, you know, Hillary is the first and worst criminal to have do such a thing.

Of course, Omammy pulls his usual retoric of insisting he knew about it the same time the rest of us did, from the news! What a dick wad. He’s the POTUS for God’s sake.

            AKLady has about 5 paragraphs that she copies and pastes over and over and over again.

        Trump would have beaten the shi# t out of her on his worse day….so shut up and stand in the corner with that thief, liar, etc…you deserve each other…

          Are you talking about King Bush II or Saint Reagan?

        Trump has more intellegence in his sphincner than the misenthrope has in her brain AND vagina! She has to have a whole team just to keep track of the lies she has told. Even then, she still fucks up on what she has said in the past.

        • AKLady

          Adolecwnt foul language.
          Oh, and foolish one, all polititians lie.
          Some are just better than othets.
          Trump, the salesman, is a master liar.
          Ask him about his relationship with the mob.
          Ask him about his relaitonship with the K.K.K.

            now I know you are not in higher academia, anatomically correct body parts, ie. used in medical field is not foul language…just correct names for those parts….but I am sure you have your slang names for those parts….

          • AKLady

            That may be your exicuse, but it does not fly. Form of use determins whether or not it is foul language.

          • BlessedtoServe

            exicuse is that a new lib pc term

            Thank you for bringing the typographical error to my attention.

        AKL … have you ever had the sense God Gave a Gnat?

        Hillary is scared spitless of getting onto a stage, and into a debate, with Trump.

        She has nothing and He can tear her apart without even trying. If the two of them debate we fully expect to hear and see Donald eviscerate her with all of her BS …

        She Lied … and Lied … and Lied …
        She has a Record of Complete Incompetence
        She has a Record of sucking up to Big Money and Crapping on Everyone else

        Aside from that … she has Absolutely. No. Stage. Presence.
        Ever wonder WHY she hasn’t done ANY Interviews?

  • dawntoo

    Is this Hillary’s way of getting out of a pres debate?

      Trash attracts more trash.

    • AKLady

      He paid them to cancell.
