    WASHINGTON -- Blasting the two major parties as "joined at the billfold," former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer announced Thursday that he is abandoning his bid for the Republican nomination for an independent candidacy for president. "Last night the Republicans held their 23rd television debate. I have not been invited to a single one," said Roemer. "I am the only candidate who has been shut out by the Republican Party. Well, we're on a mission to take this country back from the powerful special interests. We are prepared to challenge both parties. Both parties are joined at the bill fold, they...

    On Thursday, former Louisiana governor and long-shot Republican presidential contender Buddy Roemer warned about the economic threat to America from China — while standing in front of the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C. “China is the bear in the room eating jobs and no one pays attention,” Roemer claimed during a nearly hour-long address attended by just over a dozen members of the press and no other spectators. “I will get the bear out of the room,” he promised. “Why am I the only presidential candidate to see the bear?” Roemer pondered later in the speech, after giving a history...

    Buddy Roemer formally launched his presidential campaign on Thursday, trying to cast himself as a viable reform candidate instead of the quintessential long shot. The former Louisiana governor detailed his “Free to Lead” campaign theme: he’s promising to limit contributions he accepts to $100 per person, swear off PAC dollars and target the influence of Big Money on politics.

    Roemer will only take contributions of up to $100 from individuals. No PAC money, because the politicians have to worry about the impact of those decisions on their big donors. Buddy plans to get government spending down to 18.5% of GDP in 5 years. He plans for energy to come exclusively from North America in 10 Years.
  • 4 Republican hopefuls in New Hampshire find tepid Tea Party turnout

    Reuters ^ | Apr 15, 2011 17:28 EDT
    Four potential Republican presidential hopefuls showed up, but the turnout for the New Hampshire Tea Party tax day rally was rather tepid. On a brilliant spring day in Concord, perfect for a rally, only about 300 came to protest taxes and the Obama Administration, a far cry from the robust rallies held ahead of the 2010 elections. Tim Pawlenty and Rick Santorum — who have declared they are exploring a run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 — and Herman Cain and Buddy Roemer — who are considered potential hopefuls — joined state politicians in an attempt to get...

    As promised last month, I’ve removed Chris Christie and Paul Ryan from the Presidential line due to their stated disinterest in running. I’ve removed Jim Demint, since he’s removed himself from running, as well. Because he has indicated an interest in running, I have added Rand Paul; if Paul supporters try to cheat as they notoriously do for his father Ron, I will remove Rand from subsequent polls.... ....Please vote only once.

    The Republican presidential campaign seems to have sputtered to a kind of a start in Iowa last night. The undercard candidates, Buddy Roemer and Herman Cain, threatened to steal the show, but Tim Pawlenty in particular sought to show that he's got the heat and the personality size to be his party's nominee.

    Of all the 9/11 anniversary coverage this morning, FNC was absolutely the best, letting the unadulterated tape tell the story of that savage September day.Of course, there were others, and as you might have guessed in advance, CNN's was easily the worst. Most notably, not once was Flight 175's actual impact into the South Tower ever shown. But one particularly ugly moment immediately floated to the top of the CNN bowl. Former Dem Congressman (he didn't last long) and former 'd-list' DLC hack Tim Roemer was given 5 minutes by CNN to make a free, but utterly tasteless & depraved...

    I told you people yesterday and the day before of a movie, a mini-series running on ABC on September 10th and 11th, called The Path to 9/11 and I told you that I have the DVDs. I also told you because I am in touch -- I am poor when I'm in New York -- I do not have a DVD player. I don't. My apartment's got an old media room in it, it's got a laser disk player in it, but it doesn't have a DVD. Well, actually it has a DVD player in it, but the TV doesn't...

    Indianapolis - In "War of the Worlds" the underdog puts up a fight, but in the war for an Indiana U.S. Senate seat this fall, Democrats gave up without firing a shot. Richard Lugar is seeking a sixth term, and won't have a Democrat running agains him. Indiana Democrat Party Chairman Dan Parker explains, "You really don't recruit someone to run for the U.S. Senate. Somebody either wants to do it or they don't." Parker says no one did. "This is a statement about Senator Lugar," Parker said, "and his status with Hoosiers. He's very well respected by Hoosiers. He's...

    If John Kerry becomes President he will find himself on the horns of a dilemma - which close friend to ditch when he chooses a new Secretary of State. According to today's Washington Post, Kerry would pick his national security team within a few weeks after winning the White House and two of his closest friends, Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.) or Richard Holbrooke reportedly want the job of running the State Department.

    Former Louisiana Governor Buddy Roemer is the first person in a long time to stand up and tell it like it is. He quipped that current gov Kathleen Blanco had plenty of news conferences but hasn't done much else. Buddy is "waiting to see action," from Blanco. So are a lot of other people. I haven't kept up with every movement of Kathleen, but it does seem that once again she is waiting for somebody else to clean up the mess. She blamed Bush, and then went to Washington crying for money and help.

    WASHINGTON - The government is still failing to enact many swift and strong security changes to prevent terror attacks, the former Sept. 11 Commission has concluded. More than four years after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the government has not done enough to stop nuclear proliferation, give emergency first responders adequate communications systems and ensure that homeland security grants are going to the most high-risk communities, former commissioners said Friday. "We're taking small steps when we need a giant leap," said former Democratic commissioner Timothy Roemer, who is now president of the Center for National Policy at George Mason University...

    The 9-11 Commission: gone but not, the commissioners hope, forgotten. Not content to rest on their laurels, after the Commission "disbanded as a government entity" last year, the 10 commissioners believed so strongly in the need for continued public discussion about terrorism that it formed the 9/11 Discourse Project. So the commissioners keep on ticking, like the Energizer Bunny, although without an official charter. This week, the group started a series of eight public hearings this week called "The Unfinished Agenda" which are designed to assess government progress in implementing Commission recommendations. Why? In the words of Vice Chairman Lee...
