ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Just 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.

Ventura is a deranged, druggie and deserves our complete disrespect.

He has soiled his life with substance abuse and wild conspriracy theories.

Suing the widow of Chris Kyle is the last straw.

He might need the Secret Service protection after suing the widow.

The premise of your post is absurd - (though somehow I doubt you realize what premise you put forward).

James Janos (his real name) wasn’t even a real Navy SEAL. He was UDT, which wasn’t a full SEAL.

“Ventura is a deranged, druggie and deserves our complete disrespect.”

No, no, no! Jesse deserves our encouragement to make a run. Think about it. Which pool of voters would the delusional Jesse pull from? He would pull from the Dem’s of course; you know, those low information voters, anarchists, smokers & jokers, etc. So, even if he extracts a very small number of voters from the Dem electorate it would be helpful to the conservative side. So, “Run Jesse Run”, lol! Love it :)

Please run Jessie...

Since we have become a nation of fools easily entertained and transfixed by the most base and mindless dribble...

You would be the perfect candidate to entertain the masses..

What a nass. He’s starting to look like a cross between Timothy Leary and Ron Paul.

What a happy accident. I’m toying with the idea of launching my own line of he-man fragrances recalling the pungent scent of a musty auld Skara Brae village settlement.

Ummm Jesse, the effort here is to get ‘swipes out of politics. You simply need to get back on your meds and be quiet.

Well why not. After going for the throat of Kyle’s widow, he shows he is clearly a parasite. Even if he doesn’t win nominations and such, he still gets the campaign money. Next, he will name the Kyle children in his suit.

Camacho is an intellectual giant compared to Ventura.

Why don’t you let us that remain and fight decide when this experiment is over? You left America... you gave up... tens of millions of us will never give up. Maybe you have no idea how repugnant your words are to those that still believe in this republic... or maybe you just do not give a rats patootee.
