Interview with John Bootie

On July 10th, Conservative President 2008 interviewed independent presidential candidate John Bootie:

Why not run for the nomination of a party such as the Constitution Party?

I did try contacting the Constitution Party twice. I emailed them and since there headquartered here in Lancaster, Pa. I called and left a message asking the founder Jim Clymer to call me back but received no reply either time. I know I am not a perfect match for the Constitution Party but I thought it worth giving us a chance to see if we are a possible match on most issues.

    This guy could have his choice of sweet campaign theme songs.

    “Continue the WAR against terror, give General Petreus a full and unfettered go ahead to fight terror anyway HE SEE’S fit and needed to WIN. Have him remove the gloves and allow NO TIME TABLE to get out of Iraq or any country that is a terror hot spot. Go on a Media and Fighting blitz that would over shadow the Media’s attempts to spin the war as wrong. Start a media campaign on the Internet to show every single good thing done in Iraq.”

    Maybe he didn’t reply because you’re an even bigger neocon than George Bush.

    I’m not feeling that Bootie.

    “I called and left a message asking the founder Jim Clymer to call me back but received no reply

    .....an ongoing refrain!

  5. Tim Long Says:

    “the founder Jim Clymer”

    Clymer is the Chairman. Howard Phillips and Bill Shearer founded it. I don’t believe Jim was involved in the founding.

  6. Trent Hill Says:

    He wasnt.

  7. matt Says:

    “I called and left a message asking the founder Jim Clymer to call me back but received no reply

    .....an ongoing refrain!

    Two words:

    Time management.

    If Jim Clymer, who must be busy enough running the party, doesn’t return calls from prospective candidates who have apparently never read the party platform, then that’s just a way of saving everybody a lot of time, now isn’t it?

  8. Trent Hill Says:

    Also,

    Candidates dont need permission to run. Just run. Don Grundman didnt contact the National Office, and if he did—it would’ve been an “Im running” message. Not a “May i?” message.
    If I decide tomorrow that im running for the CP nomination, then all I need to do is say so,and then get to work.

  9. Cody Quirk Says:

    Hmmmmm,

    Haven’t been able to contact the CP eh?

    Sounds like we may have another Gene Chapman on our hands.

  10. Tom Kovach Says:

    Imagine a press conference. The president tells the assembled reporters, “I called and left a message asking the prime minister of Canada to call me back, but received no reply either time. So, I called the chairmen of all the major oil companies, and told them to stop drilling in Alaska, because we couldn’t get the permission of Canada.”

    HELLO!

    Most citizens of the good-old USA prefer a president that already knows the ropes before he attempts to run for president.
    ————————————-

    Given that so many of our voters today are victims of public-school “education” (which fosters the entitlement mentality), perhaps it’s understandable that we have now raised a crop of over-35 (the Constitutional minimum age for a presidential candidate) citizens that honestly can’t tell the difference between the old saying, “In America, anybody can become president,” and the saying, “In America, EVERYbody is ENTITLED to become president.”

    God help us.

  11. Me Says:

    USC starting quarterback is running for president?

  12. Ben Miller Says:

    “Sounds like we may have another Gene Chapman on our hands.”

    John Bootie is no Gene Chapman. Bootie is running a real campaign, not a crazy any one who opposes me is a communist campaign as Chapman did.

  13. Cody Quirk Says:

    Ok, yet his complaint about the CP is absolutely similar to Gene’s.

    Tell us, what formal education and political & professional experience does he have?

  14. Cody Quirk Says:

    And I bet this guy won’t even be on a single ballot.

  15. Jason Says:

    Okay if I go to the top and see what the question was.

    “Why not run for the nomination of a party such as the Constitution Party?”

    No where does it say he was asking permission for anything. Yes you can all sit here and debate if he seems like a fool or who would really take him seriously, but we are here in the Greatest nation and that is your choice. What Mr. Bootie is doing is taking a stand, he knows that his chances are slim to none and that it will be nothing but a huge uphill battle. But at least he is tired of sitting around listening to everyone complain about the way our system is, and now he is attempting to show he wants change.

    Now I am sure you will all have a blast bashing, poking fun at and anything else you can to entertain yourselves. And yes I am his son and also campaign manager. Now that will probably add more fuel to your fire, but hey who cares.

    As you can see Ben Miller thinks John is a dedicated individual, he has had him on his Blog talk radio show several times. If you took only a few mintues to check out Mr. Bootie’s site you may feel differently, or you may laugh even harder, but again that is your choice.

    We are in this till the end and won’t back down, or give up? So the choice is now your’s enjoy either way and have a wonderful Labor Day.

    God Bless,
    Jason Bootie
    Campaign Manager

  16. RRHeustisJr Says:

    There exists not one single mention of the Abortion issue and the Right to Life on the John Bootie campaign website.

    While 1.6 million American babies are butchered every year in their mothers’ wombs, it is disheartening to witness one who labels himself as “Ultra-Conservative” deliberately ignore one of the most pressing issues of our day.

  17. RRHeustisJr Says:

    Never mind, I notice that the site was updated from last week, and mention of the Abortion issue is now made.

    Mea culpa.

  18. Jason Bootie Says:

    Mr. Heustis-

    Thank you for check out the site and I apologize you felt Mr Bootie had not addressed Abortion. But he has since the beginning. I have not updated any of the issues page in the last three weeks or so. He has also addressed the Abortion issue on his radio interviews. Again thanks for checking out Mr. Bootie and hopefully you’ll continue to see what he has to say.

    Hope you had a wonderful labor day weekend.

    God Bless,
    Jason
