Posted on 05/31/2013 5:23:16 PM PDT by markomalley
ust back from his part-time home in Mexico, former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura dangled the idea Friday that he could run for the U.S. presidency in 2016.
Ventura eagerly volunteered the possibility while at Minnesota's Capitol - and pushed back against skepticism that he would re-enter the political fray after being out of office since 2003. It's hardly the first time the publicity savvy Ventura has broached the idea he would run for the White House or Senate, only to pass on a campaign.
He said the next race is "an opportune time" for an independent like him to run because there will be no incumbent. He said he's approached radio shock jock Howard Stern about being his running mate, and Stern expressed interest.
An email message seeking comment from Stern's agent was left Friday night by The Associated Press.

So I guess he thought it would be a good idea to kick off his campaign by suing Chris Kyle’s widow. Yeh that will get him a lot of votes. What a slimeball!!
Yeah he’s a real winner now that the scumbag is suing Chris Kyle’s widow.
On the other hand, maybe it will be good if he runs if we can convince libertarians not to vote for him.
Ventura is sure one stupid libertarian that unfortunately makes all libertarians look bad.
Can't wait for White House Chief of Staff Steven Bosacker!
Is this before, after or during he continues his lawsuit against Chris Kyle’s widow?
I would rather drink battery acid than have this festering piece of human excrement as my leader.
Even though he is a complete nut job, he is more qualified for the office than Obama. After all, he did serve in the military and was governor of a state. LOL!
Ace or Jesse?
More qualified for the office than Øbama.
President of what, his back yard? Good luck. There has to be an even better candidate just for that.
Remember this: While Jesse Ventura was able to become a SEAL, the Navy denied him reenlistment. That’s all you need to know about “The Body”.
I was reading a Blaze article about him suing Kyle's Widow. The Article says that Jessie Claims Kyle "Damaged his reputation"...
I giggled uncontrollably at that one. I mean Jessie goes on Alex Jones' Webisodes and you would swear they are having a serious "Bromance".... How can you damage a reputation that includes Rubbing Shoulders with Alex Jones on a regular basis?
“Oh, thank God!” said no one anywhere.
It’ll give him something to do. Everybody needs a hobby. Keeps him off the street.
I think Ventura has been playing with his dangle too much ... affected his brain.
Yeh what reputation? He’s a joke.
I hear he is suing the widow of the Navy Seal that was murdered on the gun range. He was all mad about the Seal saying he was bad mouthing GW, war; etc; so this jerk has the court to substitute his widow in the suit after his death.
Jesse’s taken one (or two) steroid shot too many...
They were dismissive about his "fringe" or "joke" candidacy.
Boy, were they wrong.
He's long since become a legend in his own mind, but I'll give him props (as well as the casting director) for his brief appearance in "The X-Files", the Jose Chung epi, iirc.
Ventura, not even his real name. Even Jebbie is John Ellis Bush.
Jesse Ventura is way past his expiration date
One of only two former governors who admitted steroid abuse.
Jesse Da Body has had one to many shots to the head !

Don’t laugh too hard- after witnessign htis ocuntry vote TWICE for them ost corrupt presdient EVER in our current ‘leader’ the citizens of htis country probably just might go for ventura- they seem to be gluttons for punishement- Jessy will get up there- promise them lots of free stuff- and it will b e a wrap- I shudder to think of 8 years of that lunatic afterr 8 frightful years of present ‘leader’- But it gets even worse, Christie- Hillary- I’ts gonna be a gut wrenching election in 2016- HOPEFULLY the GOP nominate someone that can beat htose pukes-
Agreed. Maybe he can get the Paul family involved in his campaign and we can keep all the lunatics in one place. Libertarianism is pure idiocy.
As my Mother used to say ... “damning by faint praise”.
His reasoning: if there's a surplus, that means the citizens of MN were overtaxed.
The Democrats were appalled, of course...they had lots of ideas for spending the windfall.
[[he IS the only MN governor in my lifetime to mail out tax refund checks due to a budget surplus.

I didn’t realize he had doen that- Kudos to him- but honestly he’s still a nut
I give Jesse and Dale Bumpers credits for walking out of the Wellstone Memorial as opposed to Trent Lott(R)—tough being a cheerleader and all. Senator Dale and Billy Clinton have a shared stock story about small airplane hazards in inclement weather. I believe Dale used a version of that story during the impeachment proceedings final arguments too.
So now he’s a comedian?
Gotta say his timing sucks.
Assphynkter says what?
this may be the most laughable article I have ever read on Free Republic...........nobody would vote for this miserable human being...........not the Marxists, not the Socalists, not the conservatives, the employed, the un-employed, Hispanics, blacks, Indians, junkyard dogs or anyone! The man is an all time joke and hasn’t figured it out yet!
Ace Ventura? Jesse Ventura? Both are looney ticks!
what an absolute ass
Jesse Ventura calls Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin puppets
Cool, I could use some entertainment.
Just back from his part-time home in Mexico...Dope for the Dopes:
I’ll give him as much credibility as the ~47% that moved a Left N.E. on the (R) ticket.
Might be like Paul: at least bring up something to talk about that makes the D.C. crowd nervous instead of the usual circle-jerk
Ventura - Paul, with so many out of work, America NEEDS nut jobs!
