Buddy Roemer may be entertaining in his choice of language. His focus on campaign finance reform is somewhat unique, but this is simply hypocrisy. He is unqualified to hold public office and cannot win an election, but he enjoys campaigning and basking in the adoration of his few admirers or anyone who will listen to him.

He has always grabbed at big money donations to his campaign whenever it was available to him. That is why he is actively seeking the Americans Elect nomination after he failed in the Republican primaries.

He knows that he is not capable of running an effective campaign and could never raise sufficient campaign contributions to compete with other politicians, so he condemns the others for their strengths and tries to elevate his deficiency to raise money into a virtue.

For example, see the comments of "Say Amen" at this web page, which describes Roemer's history as described by independent, objective, and reliable historians and journalists.

Mr. Roemer fabricates a conspiracy theory as to why he was not invited to any debate. The debates were run by the networks and they set the rules, not the Republican party. As they have done since the 1960's, the networks announced that the candidates must have received only 1% at least on several national polls (as the debates went on, they increased the thresholds). Buddy claims he had 4% or 5% on national polls and they still would not let him on. That is false. The truth is that he never met the minimum requirements imposed on everyone to keep the debates relevant and meaningful with only serious contenders allowed to have the national podium. These standards were reasonable. If he had 4%, as he claims, he would have been on all the debates
