An Open Letter to Aspiring Presidential Candidates

Source: Gallup, Various Political Campaign Websites

As competition for the Republican Presidential nomination heats up, I wanted to invite all of the current declared Presidential nominees to my site for a 10-question interview on all elements of their policies ranging from healthcare to international security.


Should a candidate accept my invitation, I will post a series of 7 questions on this site later this week. The candidate can send me his or her answers to those seven questions and I will post them on my site in a Q&A format. I will also send the candidate three questions tailored to that specific candidate. Governor Mitt Romney, for instance, should expect at least one question on healthcare, while Representative Bachmann should prepare for a question about the Tea Party.

President Obama is also invited to this site to answer the same questions should he have the time or inclination.

    Have you seen the huge news today?

    The Washington Post has busted the White House for corruption:

    David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs were stopping investigations and ethics committee review attempts about this but when they saw it was all going to unravel, they blew out of the White House like nobody’s business. Why else would they leave the highest jobs in politics for no apparent reason? Car Czar Steve Rattner has already been caught and charged. They key people at the Dept. of Energy all bailed out at about the same time.

    There is more about this at-

    Get the subpeona’s going and let’s put the crooks in prison. Pass this around.

    • Esmi,

      Thanks for passing this along. I’ve heard other similar stories from folks who tried to apply for DOE funding and were essentially locked out of the process before it began.

      This is key example of why government should be funding basic scientific research that private industry does not have the willingness to fund.

      Government should not, however, be picking winners in the clean energy fight. Corruption becomes a natural part of this process.
