Former Minn Governer Considering 2008 Run For WH

Fri Apr 16, 2004 12:58 pm

That's right, "The Body" may be back in politics.

Jesse Ventura is considering a run at the White House at 2008.

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,117215,00.html

He will run reportedly as an Independent (I can only hope he learns something from Nader this time around).

Still a long way away but an interesting peice of sepeculation concerning who will replace GW after his second term Big grin

Any thoughts about how he would do against Hillary?

He won't run, because he'd split the GOP vote that will try to unseat President Kerry in '08.

Not at all, L-188. It's a sight better than what we have now: Mr. I'm-Never-Wrong; Mr. "Bring-'Em-On".

Sounds pretty good to me. Better get used to it.

If they do, chief, we don't stand a chance in hell with such a mindset.

That mindset has gotten close to 700 Americans KIA over nothing. And that's a complete dishonor to them.

Fine, DeltaGuy, leave. We're better off without fair-weathered Americans like yourself, who can only call someone who they agree with 100% "President". Shows the depth of your ignorance.

Well, if Bush got re-elected, I would have some serious thoughts about other places in the world. I've got EU citizenship, so that's a possibility.

Kerry isn't the Messiah, no, but four more years of Bush and we'll either be the laughingstock of the whole world or the most hated nation in the whole world. Not very appealing options. Not to mention our country will be quite a place, and not in a good way.

And regarding the topic, that would be...well...different. What I'd really like to see is Arnold run (yes, I know he can't, but it would still be interesting)

Be proud to be a Republican. Fine by me. Proud of the disdain this man has heaped on the U.S.; proud of his responsibility for the deaths of over 600 American GI's who should be leading happy lives now; proud of that? Good for you.

Again, if you can't take American, no matter who is President, you can leave, and we're better off without you. So if Kerry is elected, well, we won't miss you here.

Alpha, get off your little soapbox. Disdain is subjective, he was not responsible for the deaths of any soldiers. They voluteered. Remember? They chose to serve, served well, and gave their life in that service.

I have never asked you.... did you ever serve your country?

I suggest that if the left wants to lead this country then their boosters such as Alex Baldwin should lead by example.

he was not responsible for the deaths of any soldiers.

One of the most breathtaking statements I've ever read on here. Last count, over 600 in Iraq are because of his orders. But with this President, "The Buck Stops Here" apparently doesn't apply. He sent them on this ill-gotten war. Their deaths are on his hands, and no one else's.

They chose to serve..

They chose to serve; they did not choose to go to war. Bush ordered them. He is responsible for them dying for no good reason.

I have never asked you.... did you ever serve your country?

I would be a 4-F, because I have severe hearing loss in one ear, and moderate hearing loss in another-was born that way.

And let me ask you something: what the he is it to you if I did or
didn't? Does that mean that somehow I can't critisize?  Laugh out loud

Just curious. If you did or didn't, matters not. We have brave people that do. Seems you point the finger at President Bush for his service, and you claim hearing loss.

Funny how that works.

Their deaths are not anyone's hands. Those are the statements of an ignorant coward. I used to think you would not stoop so low. I guess I was wrong.

Bullshit, JeffM. You asked for a reason: you wanted to take me down with it. But since I have a medical reason why I can't serve, it took care of that. You didn't ask for the hell of it.

Seems you point the finger at President Bush for his service, and you claim hearing loss.

Would you like to see my $4000 pair of Miracle Ear hearing aids, friend?

They chose to serve; they did not choose to go to war.

WTFO? Last time I checked, we haven't drafted anyone since Nam...so these men and women VOLUNTARILY joined the service...be it a desk jockey, spec ops, tank driver, pilot, whatever....they knew they MAY be in harm's way, that they may be actually used for the mission they train for. One just doesn't join the military for a nice picnic and to chill on Air Force bases...so if they're in the military and aren't ready to go to war and fight and possibly die for the country, well, they're in the wrong business. And I can assure you, all 600 of those brave souls knew what they were doing..like it or not...noone was forcing them to join...and that's what makes the military so great.

I would be a 4-F, because I have severe hearing loss in one ear, and moderate hearing loss in another-was born that way.

So you didn't.....so don't dishonor their service by speaking for them. Before you ask about mine..I got 2 years left of college, and I'll be sitting at the front of the pointy end of the stick- air power...but that's beside the point.

And GWB as a second term President...gives me a chill of patriotism...proud to be an American  Big thumbs up

And to be honest, I don't believe you have them. If you do, I may change my mind "friend". But, you won't, you will just curse and call names, so it won't matter anyway.

But the question is what would his party affliation be? Fat chance on him running on either the Democrats or Republicans banner. Libertarian Party, maybe (his politics do mirror some of the Libertarian's politics). More than likely, he'll take the Independence Party national. The IP is a split from the Reform Party, in which there was much feuding between the Ross Perot/Pat Buchannan wing, which became more right-wing after the recruitment of Buchannan into the party; and the Ventura wing, which was the more moderate wing of the Reform Party.

Doesn't look like many people cared that Alpha 1 was really living up to his angry old coot status with his hearing aids.


For the record, I suppose I should make my shocking revelation. I also have a hearing aid. Mine, however, was only $1500. However, I never need to wear it, even though I have 50% hearing loss in my left ear. Spinal meningitis (the Helen Keller disease) is a real bugger.

So thats why hes a Democrat.. he can't hear how silly they sound. Also fits he works at a ticket counter with Continental, I often wondered if they could hear me.

Seriously though Alpha1, every political thread you jump on is the same. You attack the righties for seeing things differently, you beat the same tired arguments to death over and over and over and tell us all how stupid we are. PLEASE get on with your life, vote for who you want, you are not changing any minds here.
