The Senate GOP Conference has declined to have President Obama address their next gathering and subject himself to a Q&A as he did with House Republicans and House Democrats at their separate annual retreats in January.

“We’re always happy to hear from the president, but I don’t really feel any compelling need to do it [on camera],” said Texas Sen. John Cornyn, the Republicans’ chief campaign strategist.

What are Senate Republicans afraid of? If they are so sure of their policy ideas, why would they deprive the public of an opportunity to judge a debate between them and the president?

Only answer I can come up with: they’re chicken.
