Buddy Roemer has been a governor and congressman. He has been identifying information and stating opinions that suggest that US Presidential Elections do appear to have layers of gateways to power one of which is media access. He has apparently concluded that he has been denied fair media access.
On Friday, January 6, 2012 he was on an MSNBC television broadcast and spoke to television host Rachel Maddow. He indicated that the rules of being allowed to participate in the 2012 GOP Presidential Debates had changed a few times and that the identified amended rules caused him to be excluded from the debates. He has reportedly yet to be allowed to participate in any of the 2012 GOP Presidential Debates.
This author was unable to find the transcripts on the MSNBC website of either the aforementioned MSNBC interview on 1-6-12 or the 1-8-12 interview identified below as of the date and time of writing this article so this author has relied upon some notes taken while watching the television broadcasts.
This morning, on an MSNBC television broadcast with host Alex Witt, 2012 GOP Presidential Candidate Buddy Roemer discussed his exclusion from the 2012 GOP Presidential Debates thus far and he said : “This is so arbitrary…I’m the only guy running who’s been a governor and a congressman. But this is not about me…it’s about a country in decline, unfairness, corruption and the lobbyists’ money that they all take…The only difference between the candidates on the stage today…is how many Super PACs they have…”
Mr. Roemer indicated that if elected he would limit the lobbyists’ influence in Washington. He also said : “You can’t do budget reform without dealing with earmarks the lobbyists get, you can’t do tax reform without dealing with tax loopholes for big corporations…Ask Obama how it is to be president. He is in gridlock…you know why? He doesn’t run the government, the lobbyists do.”
Mr Roemer also said : “You listen to these debates, it’s more of the same. Over and over and over…They won’t do any of those things. We’ll have another failed presidency. You know why? They’re all hooked by the lobbyists.”
The 2012 United States Presidential Candidates themselves or their representatives are each invited to comment, make recommendations, and/or add to the information in The Hygiology Post. Also, all of the 2012 United States Presidential Candidates are invited to be interviewed (for almost any purpose and in basically any format they choose to be interviewed) by and write an article for publication in The Hygiology Post.
The author plans to expound upon Prescription #9 (Prescription #9 of “Some Prescriptions For Productive Goals” is : Consider voting for candidates [e.g., President of The United States] based upon levels of intuition in addition to other areas you believe deserve consideration) with additional information in The Hygiology Post.
The Hygiology Post welcomes feedback from readers on all six parts of the series (individually and/or as a total package) upon completion of the series as to whether the articles help fulfill its vision and mission.
