Twitter: Louisiana’s Ex-Gov. Roemer who lost to David Duke To Be U.S. President?
Written by 

For now, Buddy Roemer is not a house-hold name in American politics. 

Some say he is not a known commodity in Louisiana as he lost his last two elections after a very challenging first try as Louisiana Governor. 

How long has it been since he was in the public eye in his own state?

Ever since he lost, Edwin Edwards spent four more years at the capitol as governor. Mike Foster followed Edwards for two four year terms.  Then there was Kathleen Blanco I, Katrina and then Blanco II.   Following Blanco has been Bobby Jindal.

Yet, the former Louisiana governor believes he can pull of an upset win for U.S. President when time has past him by in the world of Louisiana politics and as he runs on a campaign of accepting no more than 100 dollars per voter in campaign contribution—a feat that would still put him way behind his competition in campaign contributions even if he received 1 out of 20 voters sent him a check. 

So, how is he playing in U.S. politics?

Here are some samples from twitter:

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
