Thursday Night Humor: Alvin Greene declines to challenge Obama for the presidency

Posted by: ST on June 14, 2012 at 10:42 pm

Because laughter is good medicine for the soul, I bring you this from the Daily Caller‘s Alex Pappas:

President Obama, you can now rest.

Alvin Greene says he’s decided against challenging you for president.

“I’m not running for president,” the 2010 Democratic Party nominee for the U.S. Senate from South Carolina said in an interview on WBT radio in Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday.

Greene — who garnered national media attention in 2010 for miraculously winning the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate despite doing no campaigning — had reportedly made phone calls asking how much it would cost to run for president shortly after losing the general election to Republican Sen. Jim DeMint in 2010.

Greene told the radio interviewer, Keith Larson, on Thursday that he’s now focused on getting “myself together” in “the private sector first.”

Asked if that means he’s done with politics, Greene responded: “You never know. You never know. I think I’ll just leave that open and we just have to just wait and see.”

Larson also asked Greene whether he’s been invited to partake in the Democratic National Convention this summer, and the former candidate said he hadn’t.

He hasn’t been invited yet to DNC 2012 (yet)? Those raaaaacists! ;-)

    That “private sector” that’s doing just fine?? Well, good luck to Mr. Greene, then. He will need it.

    Actually, I think Greene missed an opportunity here. If a convicted felon can get some 40% of the vote in a Dem primary against Obama, think how well someone with no criminal record might do!

    No, on second thought, the rap sheet is a resume enhancement to Democrats.

  2. Those forward thinking commiecrats; they are realy something, aren’t they? Five will get you ten that in 2016 Obhammud will make another run trying to be the next Grover Cleveland and Shrillary will run in an effort to emulate the Phoenix.
