This is true

I’m unable to determine if this is a true story about someone else or some sort of joke webpage. But as applied to me the conclusions presented are absolutely true:

Presidential bid by Joe Huffman unlikely

Lack of name ID, fundraising hurdles are practically insurmountable for Huffman

The 2016 campaign for President is heating up, but Joe Huffman is likely to spend this race on the sidelines.

Based on the field of would-be Presidential candidates, it appears Huffman is already too far behind to mount a credible campaign, and for that reason would be unlikely to jump into the fray.

“Joe Huffman simply doesn’t have the name identification of Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush or any of the other top-tier candidates. And can Huffman raise a billion dollars of campaign cash in the next 18-months? Frankly, I’m skeptical. I say this all with due respect for Huffman and their family.”

Joe Huffman’s net worth would need to be competitive with that of Clinton or Bush, or they would need to have many wealthy, generous supporters to finance a credible presidential campaign.

Opposition researchers investigate all candidates’ backgrounds, hoping to find negative potential issues like an arrest, divorce, bankruptcy, affairs, girlfriend / boyfriend, mug shot, etc. If there were such issues for any potential candidate, that would be a challenge to overcome. For example, George W. Bush overcame the disclosure of an arrest for driving while intoxicated (DUI or DWI) in 2000 and was elected President.

While some may discount the possibility of Huffman jumping into the 2016 Presidential race, there remains a path Huffman could follow should they decide to run.

I’m sure there are many people who will be quite relieved. Why? We have to keep our priorities straight. I wouldn’t have time for Boomershoot next year if I were seriously campaigning.

  1. Damn!

    I already put a bumper sticker on my car and you know how hard those things are to take off!!

    🙂

  2. I could possibly scrape together five bucks or so to send you if that would help

  3. I’ll give you all the change in my pocket, right now! I’m certain it would be enough to buy a cup of coffee, and THAT will get you going, right there.

    • That’s more than I offered Cruise. Instead I told him he doesn’t need my money, that he just needs to do the right thing and that would get so many people screaming for his head that he’d have all the free publicity he could wish. Simple.

      • That’s a good one. As far as I know, Mark Twain said, “Always do right. It will gratify some and astonish the rest. “

  4. Boomershoot would have to be a required campaign stop! That is how you would differentiate yourself from the pack. No other candidate could show readiness to take on any threat as you do with the explosions you yourself make!

    • It’s about the marksmanship. The explosions are just the hit confirmation mechanism.

      • I’m not sure there’s enough room. But imagine holding Boomershoot at Camp David with all the world’s heads of state.

  5. Just imagine holding Boomershoot on White House grounds after you get elected!
