No más! No más! Obama Nixes Future Debate Rounds

CNN reports that Barack "Roberto" Obama's saying "no mas" to further debates with Hillary "Sugar" Rodham Clinton!

toughies at ABC are trying to do me in ... aahhhaaa!! (via Memeorandum):

Sen. Barack Obama suggested Thursday that he doesn't see any point in having another debate with Democratic rival Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Clinton has agreed to a debate next week, but Obama has not accepted the invitation.

At an appearance in Raleigh, North Carolina, Obama said he has a lot of campaigning to do in a limited amount of time.

Obama said he had agreed to an earlier debate, but Clinton declined that one.

"I'll be honest with you, we've now had 21," he said. "It's not as if we don't know how to do these things. I could deliver Sen. Clinton's lines; she could, I'm sure, deliver mine."

Obama said he has to look at his schedule, considering the upcoming primaries.

The two Democrats went head-to-head in a debate Wednesday night on ABC.

During the first part of that debate, the candidates largely rehashed the controversies that have marked their past six weeks on the campaign trail.

Much of the fire was leveled at Obama, who once again answered questions about controversial statements by his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and his own comments that some rural Pennsylvanians are "bitter."

Obama said it took too long for them to address anything substantial.
Anything substantial?

Oh sure, longstanding ties to the Weather Underground, "bitter" American smackdowns, and Wright's greatest hits aren't substantial, right ... it's all "
trivial pursuit."

Maybe Obama had a stomach ache?
