You can't say the Big Apple isn't playing a part in the Republican presidential primaries. Several roles, in fact. One of them is New York's dubious distinction of being home to Donald Trump.

How did the heart of a nation's leadership selection turn into a predictable reality show, where damaged players arrive in a limo, melt down and get voted off? And... how much more of this can Republican voters take?

Romney Dumps Trump Debate -- But Still Runs Risk Of Receiving Trump's Endorsement

HuffingtonPost.com | Jason Linkins | Posted 02.06.2012 | Politics

Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is now the third invited candidate, after Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman, to turn down the offer to appear in a GOP debate moderated by Donald Trump. That was a good decision. Unfortunately for Mitt, he does not appear to have sufficiently angered The Donald with the way he went about declining the invitation. Trump was on MSNBC this morning discussing Romney's decision, and by all appearances the amount of ill will sowed by Romney was insufficient to disqualify him from receiving Trump's endorsement. That's too bad!
