White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said in a written statement that the U.S. is watching the situation.

Maybe I’m wrong. I am a product of the Texas Public School system after all, but this doesn’t look like a “spirited debate” to me.
At some point, you’ve got to put your money where your oh-so-eloquent mouth is.
The opportunity will most likely not happen at a time and place of your choosing. It will not happen when you are ready. It will not come when the teleprompter is loaded and the lights are on.
Regardless, the world will judge what we do when the time does come.
I just hope we aren’t found wanting.
