Romney Still Hesitant About YouTube Debate

The Republican YouTube debate is seemingly back on, but Mitt Romney still isn't committing.

Romney, the lone GOP holdout, has posted more videos on his YouTube channel (283 as of Sunday afternoon) than any other presidential candidate, Republican or Democrat. But he has resisted the debate, in which videotaped questions are submitted through YouTube. In an interview with Manchester Union Leader, Romney said, "I think the presidency ought to be held at a higher level than having to answer questions from a snowman."

So while his campaign finds YouTube to be a worthy outlet for spreading it's message, it's evidently not up to par for a debate questions. Billiam the snowman in question responded.

For a snowman, he makes a good point. So is Romney not committing because questions submitted by ordinary people over the internet below the level of the presidency, or is he hoping to avoid questions like this?

PS - There are a lot of questions about legalizing marijuana posted so far, I wonder if one will make it on the air, hippies anyways.
