Video of Virgil Goode Appearance on Washington Journal

Thank ya kindly.
I knew Goode voted against the bailouts because he was stripped of party funding in that campaign like my congressman was. I believe they stripped Michele Bachmann of funding too but she pulled out a win anyway. My congressman lost by 2% that year but we reelected him in 2010.
Real Conservatives like this Virigl Goode, Sarah and others we could A: take back the GOP (if Mittens hasn't pulled it irrevocably to the left yet) B: get enough Conservatives elected to office, and then the Repub's refuse to support them we jump ship and strike out on our own.
Watch the video and ask yourself:
Would I rather have Obama, Romney, or Goode as my president?
And what makes this “breaking news?”
It’s the first major interview of a presidential candidate.
It's the first major interview of a presidential candidate.
There will be very few candidates from recognized parties, and Virgil Goode is the only experienced, well-known conservative in this 2012 election.
More relevant than most of these:

Preach it, Virgil!
I don't disagree with what he says but he is a PR nightmare.
Sorry, life is about sales, this guy couldn't sell heat to Eskimo's
In accordance with FR custom:
- Goode was elected as an independent and switched to the Democrat party.
- Major campaign focus was for passage for the Equal Rights Amendment.
- Big supporter of Democrat L. Douglas Wilder, nominated him for Lt. Gov. at Dem convention. Wilder went on to crack down on gun sales as Governor.
- Lost to Democrat U.S. Senator Chuck Robb in Democrat primary.
- Elected to U.S. House as a Democrat, caucused with democrats until 2000, switching to independent, then Republican.
- 2008 lost to Democrat Tom Perriello
- 2010 Filed paperwork with FEC to allow him to raise money for rematch, announced in late July 2009 that he would not run.
Even if I were for Goode, there is no way I could call this “Breaking News.”
You made me watch the video. Blech. I recommend his supporters stick to print and bury any video or audio of him. I think I know now why he didn’t chance a run in the GOP primary.
I agree with you. He makes Bush look like a master orator. I think the House was Goode’s high watermark in political campaigning and he lost that to a Dem. But hey, his party is “ballot eligible” in 17 states.
Best thing would be for Americans Elect to get on ballot in VIrginia with someone who will bleed the democrats equal to whatever pittance Goode gets.
All the bells were ringin’
the night they drove ole Dixie down
All the people were singin’
Virgil did a good job. The old boy can hold his own.
I agree with him. With unemployment at 9-11%, why the heck are we bringing in one and a half million LEGALS who do nothing except take American jobs?
Wow. If you watched the video, LVR, then we watched an entirely different video.
I thought he was right on the money, clear, to the point, honest, and insightful.
I looked up his voting record in his democrat years.
His ACU rating was more conservative than all but four or five republicans. He doubled Zell Miller’s ratings, and Zell was always held up by Hannity and crew as the ideal democrat.
He voted to IMPEACH Clinton....something that didn’t happen with all republicans in the house, and very, very few in the Senate.
As he says, he came up in the Virginia ranks as a conservative Virginia democrat where democrats were conservative. I remember those years. I was a conservative Ohio democrat and my family were conservative N Carolina democrats.
But, his principles remained the same. He voted for conservative issues.
He has a perfect pro-life record. A pro-life, pro-God, pro-Gun, pro-fiscal sanity, pro-small government record.
Now...you tell me that Mitt Romney is a conservative.
Disagree. It’s the first interview with one of the nation’s few presidential candidates.
Other recent breaking news has been about ABC canceling a sitcom.
I want Palin... But she has the same chance as Goode- zilch!
She is not running.
Obama is pro-abortion.
Romney has been all over the map on pro-abortion and pro-life.
Goode has a 100% pro-life record.
Which of the above 3 candidates has been the consistent conservative?
I don’t think the ERA was a conservative proposal. Nor was Gov. Wilder a conservative. And he lost his own district to a Dem.
On the ballot in how many states?
Sorry, not a serious candidate against Obama. Primary mission in this election is to remove the regime from power. Goode is not good for that mission - if anything he hinders it.
Obama supported the TARP bailout.
Romney supported the TARP bailout.
Goode voted against it.
Which one is the conservative?
(Did you know repubs punished him monetarily for that vote and that it hurt his campaign?)
I don’t really care what Goode’s positions are. If I wanted to vote for the person who most agrees with my positions, I’d vote for myself.
But that would stupid because I have no chance of defeating the Obama marxist regime.
And neither does Goode.
“On the ballot in how many states?”
LOL. Going to be interesting to see how he charts a path to electoral victory through those 17 states.
Would you rather have Obama or Romney? That's the real question.
Goode isn't running for president. You can think he is but in the real world, he's not. In the real world, the next President will be either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. Not Virgil Goode, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny or the resurrected ghost of Ronald Reagan.
Obama or Romney. Who do you want?
Goode is extremely pro-gun yet supported Wilder. He did not change his pro-gun views.
Goode is extremely pro-life and anti-gay agenda yet he supported the ERA. He did not budge one inch on life and gay agenda.
He supported Wilder to show acceptance of equality for Blacks, and he supported the ERA portion about equality of opportunity under the law. Everyone at the time said it was the extremes to which a court might interpret the ERA tha they worried about, not about standing for equality of opportunity and equal treatment under the law.
At NO TIME did he become anti-gun or anti-life.
Obama is BOTH anti-guna and anti-life.
Romney was BOTH anti-gun and anti-life.
Goode has ALWAYS been pro-gun and pro-life.
Which one is the conservative.
So, the best you have against Goode is that he believed in equal opportunity under the law, supporting both a black man and a equality for females?
I agree with *all* my positions on the issues. So I’m a much better candidate for me to vote for.
And, as I said previously, “In accordance with FR custom..” we have to completely trash all candidates. Nothing personal.
So, I’m sorry, being a Democrat and supporting the liberal feminist agenda is a deal-killer for Goode. Gotta rule him out for that.
Well that and he has no chance of defeating the Obama regime.
Sorry, but you’re wrong.
He never violated pro-life, pro-gun, anti-gay agenda.
But, Romney has consistently. Obama too.
Which one is the conservative: Obama, Romney, or Goode?
I’m more conservative than any of them! Hooray for me!
But I’m not voting for me - for anything.
If Goode were running for congress in my district - and was on the ballot - I might vote for him.
But not against Obama for president in this election. That would be stupid and very contrary to the good of the republic.
IMHO, of course.
The Constitution Party was on the ballot in 40 states in 2008. They will be again, and maybe a few more.
That only highlights the hurdles that are placed before 3rd parties to gain ballot access, and those hurdles are created by commissions with members from the....you guessed it....dem/rep parties.
Nonetheless, George Bush won with only 29 states in 2000 and with 30 states in 2004. So, depending on the states, a win could be easily had with 40 states. No one is getting Calif, NY, etc. out of the democrats hands in this cycle.
Which one is more conservative?
Do you really believe that?
Is so, a wager: I’ll give you $1000 for every state Goode wins if you’ll give me a dime for every one he doesn’t.
I think you're wrong there. And their candidate got less than 200k votes that year. Goode said they were "ballot eligible" in 17 states and 'hoped' to be in 40 states.
Which, by the way is still short of Lenora Fulani of the New Alliance party in 1988 - she was on the ballot in all 50 states during her first Presidential campaign. Perhaps Goode should hire her.
The unfortunate choice is Romney vs Obama. Obama is far far worse
Agreed, Goode has no chance...
Another person who has no chance is Romney.
Lets meet in the middle and force the GOP to open the convention and we can come up with a candidate that is acceptable to the base.
The GOP loses... GAURANTEED...
There's only one state Virgil Goode might have an impact in: Virginia. And this is because he could potentially gather enough votes to throw the state to Obama.
You 0-Bots must hate all these polls showing Romney winning. Lemme guess. All lies!
I know Virgil. He is a good man and a real conservative. He is hard not to like. Virgil makes a lot of sense.
Romney doesnt have a snowballs chance in hell either...
Because we wont support the SOB much less vote for him. Its just the facts of life. Deal with it...
If you really want to do something constructive join us in forcing the GOP to open the convention. We DEMAND a brokered convention where we can hammer out a candidate that is acceptable.
If the GOP refuses to meet this simple demand then they can go along the path of socialism without us.
END OF STORY...
I don’t agree Romney has no chance.
As far as opening the convention, I’m voting to give delegates to Newt. I doubt my or others actions will prevent Romney’s nomination. Had we united behind a notRomney opponent earlier, it was possible, much less likely now- every other candidate has stopped campaigning.
Do you see some other math that I don’t?
Who's "we"? You and twelve other Freepers? Go ahead and stomp your feet. The rest of us have moved on to the goal of defeating Obama.
Sorry you didn't get your way. Me neither. I'd suggest growing up.
I'll work on defeating Obama.
The convention will not be brokered. Grow up and deal with it.
You going to go out and campaign tirelessly for romney?
Lit drops, phone banks, $$$, etc?
Well IM not... And I am certain that a significant # of the folks who usually make up the GOP ground game wont be doing it for romney either....
Romney has no chance. WE NEED A BROKERED CONVENTION...
If the convention is NOT brokered then you need to deal with the FACT that your socialist candidate is going to LOSE to the other socialist candidate.
Its really just THAT simple.
In the general election I’ll be working hard for whoever Obama’s opponent is, yes.
I’m still not sure what you would have me do that I’m not doing to deny Romney the nomination.
Getting rid of romney is going to take EXTRAORDINARY pressure.
IF the delegates and those in leadership of the GOP are made to understand that a SIGNIFICANT percentage of the folks who reliably vote for / work for / donate to the republican candidates WONT vote for Romney if he is the candidate. Then we have a SHOT at getting a brokered convention.
However... this takes SOLIDARITY on the part of the anti-socialists. F’ing idiots who go around saying “I dont like romney, but ill vote for him against obama” are NOT F’ING helping. Your giving AID AND COMFORT TO THE ENEMY!!! Your giving the delegates and the GOP-e the VERY FALSE impression that the rest of us are going to follow your lead and vote the republican socialist.
You and your buddies need to STFU.
