Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, who has revealed plans to run as Vice President with Ron Paul in 2012, is making his presence felt with news-making interviews and explosive statements on 9/11 attacks, President Barack Obama and President-hopeful Michele Bachmann.
The former governor-turned-conspiracy theorist, who is currently promoting his book '63 Documents the Government Doesn't Want You to Read', said that he would run for Vice President if Ron Paul ran as an Independent.
On ABC's Good Morning America with George Stephanopoulos, Ventura made light the idea of Michele Bachmann, often identified as the "un-Palin", running for President.
"You've got a couple of candidates from your state, Michele Bachmann and Tim Pawlenty," Stephanopoulos observed before asking Ventura, "Could she be President?"
"Not with my vote, I'll tell you that," Ventura asserted.
On CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, the Vice-President hopeful when questioned on the claims linking President Barack Obama to the CIA, he retorted, "Can you say he's not?"
Making another controversial statement, Ventura claimed that Dick Cheney not only knew of the September 11 attacks but also allowed it to happen to further the Middle East agenda.
"I believe Dick Cheney knew it," said Ventura.
"They allowed it to happen to further their agenda in the Middle East," he added
Just think, this man was Minnesota’s GOVERNOR.
We need someone a lot smarter than Jesse. He’s got the big mouth, but not much on top.
Everyone always talks about Cheney “furthering his plans” in the middle east.
What plans? What money? What oil?
The Cheneys made I think 7 million dollars his last year in the white house. That’s a lot for the avg person, but not as far as WH alumni go. He gave almost half of it away to charity and where a lot of it came from his wife’s book. Is he a tycoon now? No, he has a severe heart condition and probably is spending his days with his family.
Who became a tycoon after the WH? The people I know who really kept making money by making deals are the Clintons and Gores in fantastic ways. Gore with his carbon credit scheming and google and apple board involvements make him multimultirich.
I may not know a lot about the Cheneys, but evil Dick and his Halliburton machine just don’t add up in logic.
It never ceases to amaze me what kind of lunatics people will willingly, ~knowingly~ vote for.
[do the SEALS still acknowledge Ventura as ‘one of their own’?]
This election cycle gets curiouser and curiouser!
I wish we could replace one of those lost on that day.
First I’ve heard about the Ron Paul connection. Has Paul agreed to this?
What a screwball!
Really? Ron Paul is looking to be the next Ross Perot?
There is no Constitutional requirement that the President has to be sane, Jesse, but it’s a good idea.
Alex Jones for Sec.of State
I doubt that Ventura is buying into the specific Democrat conspiracy theories such as Halliburton and personal enrichment. Ventura probably believes conspiracy theories involving PNAC.
And there's definitely a place for Dennis Kucinich in such an administration.
He’s feeling lonely and unappreciated again.
That anyone would make plans to run as “vice president” is laughable.
A Ventura style admin. wouldn’t have a cabinet, it would be a locker, locked.
The more it does, the more it favors Odumbo who already begins with a huge media advantage. Look for the fifth column to continue pushing the lunacy opposition so they can lump in Republicans as extremists.
