Trump says he won't host Iowa debate

Donald Trump says he is pulling out of a Republican presidential debate he had agreed to moderate in Iowa.

The real estate mogul announced Tuesday that he was stepping back in order to preserve the option of running for president in case he's not satisfied that the eventual Republican nominee can defeat President Barack Obama. The conservative website Newsmax was to host the debate Dec. 27.

But the debate has been in jeopardy ever since Mitt Romney signaled he would not participate. Other candidates bowed out. Only Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum agreed to take part.

Many Republican strategists warned that a presidential debate moderated by Trump, star of "Celebrity Apprentice," would create a circus-like atmosphere that might diminish the candidates vying to challenge Obama.

Here's the choice folks! Trump, Gingrich, or Romney.
Trump's only interest is money and fame, Gingrich has
no morals or ethics, and Romney can't remember if he
is an actual candidate.
Barak Obama is probably laughing in his wine glass.
We now have 300 Million people in the USA. Alas,
the above three are possible candidates.

Americans are voting for Ron Paul and taking our country back.
