Buddy Roemer appeared on Morning Joe on MSNBC the day after he declared an end to his bid for president. Yet nobody know he was running for president. He was not allowed to participate in the Republican debates. The only candidate who was both a former Governor (Louisiana) and congressman – he was both qualified and electable. His problem was his message. He wanted money out of politics. Thus, mainstream media such as the Washington Post ignored him.
Joe Scarborough told him there was no way he could win without money. He replied – all I wanted to do was get 3 million people to send me $100. That would have been enough to win it. His reply to those who told him he couldn’t win without corporate money – I’ll run my campaign exactly like I’ll serve – “Free to Lead”.
You do not elect your presidents. They are selected for you. The media does not work for you. They work against you.
2012 is Presidential Election Selection year.
