Buddy Roemer Looking for Joe-Mentum


With Thanksgiving coming to a close, the last stretch of Republican campaigning in Iowa and New Hampshire is set to ratchet up on the airwaves. Wait, there canbe more? Anywho, in his quest to take New Hampshire, former La. governor Buddy "Just Tap it Grandpa" Roemer is pulling a storied practice of yore into his campaign: Joe-Mentum. In 2004, Sen. Joseph Lieberman employed this strategy to practically no success. In fact, you may not even remember it. But Buddy does, and he's courting Lieberman's lifeforce. Hard. Tonight, Roemer announced that the Connecticut senator is his first choice to be a running mate.


Buddy Roemer Gets His Debate Dander Up


The Republican primary debate stage may be as crowded as the jam session at an Andrews family reunion, but, so far, there has been one convenient oversight. Buddy Roemer thought he was doing everything he needed to suck up to the Republican Party. He announced early. He left his home state for New Hampshire. He let Stephen Colbert call him grandpa. But, for all the sacrifice, he still hasn't gotten a chance to go on TV, and take potshots at Mitt Romney.
