Buddy Roemer Is Still Running for President and He Wants Huntsman to 'Quit Bitching


Former governor of Louisiana Buddy Roemer is running for president. He's not on any national polls, he says he's only raised $300,000 and he gets virtually no media attention. He's running anyway.

In an interview with Business Insider, he vented some of his frustrations about his bid for the White House. He had some fun things to say about Jon Huntsman.

On not getting invited to participate in the GOP debates:

Whenever I meet a qualification to get on stage they change it. The process has been  specifically tailored to keep me out. But I've raised $300,000 with no PAC money, no Super-PAC help. I'm amazed at how far we've come with this little exposure.

On Huntsman's lack of 'guts':

I got a word for Jon Huntsman: do something! Quit bitching and lead. You got a Super-Pac. The only way you can win is get a billion dollars from your daddy? Grow up!

He's a decent guy but he doesn't have the guts to stand with me. Let me repeat that: he doesn't have the guts to do it.

He also tweeted this thoughtful response to Herman Cain's announcement Saturday that he would suspend his presidential campaign:

During a debate in early August, Cain quoted a line from a song featured in a Pokemon movie. He attributed the quote simply to "a poet."
